To Have and to Harley (Bikers & Brides #1) by Regina Cole
You may now kiss the biker
Bethany Jernigan owes her bestie. Big time. So when wedding planning overburdens the bride-to-be, Bethany steps in to handle the nitty-gritty. But the guy in charge isn’t anything like she imagined. He’s gruff, tattooed, and 100% male. His staff is even rougher around the edges, and it’s not long before she feels as if she’s stepped into some kind of crazy alternate reality.
Are those…bikers? Arguing about wedding favors?
Trey Harding never wanted this to get so out of hand. One little lie somehow snowballed into a world of dresses and flowers and food and holy-hell-he’s-in-over-his-head. But it’s not like he can confess he’s not the wedding planner he’s pretending to be—especially now that he’s falling for the maid of honor! His charade is becoming a farce, and as engines rev and ribbons fly, Trey’s running out of time to figure out how to tell the truth without losing his new family, his crew…or the woman of his dreams.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a new to me author, and also first in the series, so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. I love MC books, and the blurb sounded interesting, so I decided to take a chance.
Trey is a self proclaimed modern day Robin Hood. He and his “band of merry men” (MC brothers) are thugs that only target bad guys. At the beginning of the story, he is a tough guy. But when he meets the other characters, his entire demeanor changes. He begins a complicated lie that quickly gets out of hand.
Bethany Jernigan is a woman alone. She has no family, except for her best friend’s family, who she would do anything for. When her best friend asks for a favor, Bethany doesn’t hesitate. She quickly agrees. She has no idea what she is getting in the middle of!
From the very beginning, this book seems to be a comedy of errors. Anything that can go wrong, does. While the story is different than most MC stories, I had a hard time connecting with the characters, and a difficult time staying interested in the book itself. Although it was a well written book and funny as all get out, it was not very believable. This story would be great for someone looking for a light-hearted, funny story, but it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for.
