Author: L. Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2019
Murphy’s Law- Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
As Satan’s Fury’s sergeant-at-arms, it was my job to stay one step ahead. It was up to me to make sure the club was ready when things went awry. I had to anticipate our enemies’ every move and plan accordingly. I couldn’t let Murphy’s Law bite me in the ass, so I created a set of rules to follow.
• The club comes first.
• Always have your brother’s back.
• Don’t make promises you can’t keep.
• Don’t buy into other people’s bullshit.
• Never let your emotions rule you.
I thought they’d prepare me for anything, but I was wrong. Nothing could’ve prepared me for Riley Nichols—the farmer’s daughter with coal-black eyes and a fiery tongue. She took me by surprise, mesmerizing me with her strength and tempting me with her innocence.
I wanted to make her mine, but having her meant breaking my rules—every last one of them.
Murphy: Satan’s Fury MC-Memphis by L. Wilder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First impression of this book, is Heat. Lots and lots of Heat (and yes, that’s with a capital H!) But not just that. There is also plenty of excitement, some scary parts, when you aren’t sure what’s going to happen next, and some very sweet interactions between Murphy and Riley. So this story has a little bit of everything I love in a MC story, making it an absolutely perfect read for me! There is nothing better to me than a bad boy and an instant connection with a good girl!
This book picks up where Riggs left off, finishing up the final details of Riggs and Reece’s story. It also gives some details of Murphy’s background, why he is who he is. It gives some insight into his personality, his beliefs, and his actions later on in the book. I found him to be so much more than the bad boy he is at first glance. Underneath it all, he is exactly what Riley never knew she was looking for.
Riley, on the other hand, is a college student, who grew up on a horse farm. She isn’t sure what she wants to do with her life, but she knows that family is important, and she loves hers more than anything. When she finds out that things aren’t what they seem to be, she isn’t sure how to handle it, what to think, or what to do. She meets Murphy at a time her life is in turmoil, and she isn’t sure what to do about him either!
I couldn’t help but love Murphy and Riley. They are absolutely perfect together! The connection between Murphy and Riley was electric, and undeniable, but it seemed that Murphy’s law was in full effect, and I wasn’t sure that they’d find their HEA together. Their story had me hooked from the very beginning, and before I knew it, I was done! As with other stories by this author, the MC is a bit more hardcore than some by other writers, and the characters are a bit rougher around the edges. However that just adds to their appeal, and makes them more lovable! This is a definite read for anyone that loves MC romance, or enjoys that instant connection!
“Lee,” my father warned. “Go inside. I’ll be there in a minute.”
Being as snarky as possible, I smiled and said, “I’d be happy to show them around for you. I’m sure they’d love to see the stables and check out the horses, or are they here for some other reason?”
I knew I was walking on thin ice. These men were most likely dangerous, but I couldn’t seem to stop myself. It was like I’d been possessed by a crazy person, and she was determined to ruin whatever business they had together. I probably would’ve kept at it if one of the bikers hadn’t taken it upon himself to get involved. As soon as he stepped forward, I realized he was the man from the bar, and it was all I could do to keep my wits about me. With his leather jacket and ass-hugging jeans, he had a rugged look about him, but that didn’t make him any less attractive. In fact, just like the night before, I found it sexy as hell. My interest in him took me by complete surprise. He and his buddies were more than likely criminals, doing God-knows-what to God-knows-who. I knew I had no business finding him or anyone like him appealing, but I couldn’t seem to help myself. I was trying to pull myself together when he removed his sunglasses and his blue eyes locked on mine. Damn, I couldn’t move. I couldn’t think. I was a complete mess. Thankfully, the spell was broken as soon as he opened his mouth.
“Hey, Lee. Why don’t you do us all a favor and just go inside like your father said?”
I was equally hurt and appalled by his unwarranted suggestion, and while I would’ve loved to tell him where to stick it, I wasn’t stupid. I knew I was up against a grizzly bear of a man. Choosing to play it safe, I replied, “I was just trying to be helpful.”
“I think we both know that isn’t true.” The look on his face left me as breathless as it did enraged. Damn. I had no idea why he got to me the way he did. His voice was low and menacing as he growled, “Now, if you don’t mind … we have business to discuss.”
Again, I had to fight the urge to snap back at him. Trying to play it cool, I took off my baseball cap and ran my fingers through my hair. With sarcasm dripping off of every word, I gave him a forced smile and replied, “Certainly. I wouldn’t want to interrupt.”
When I started for the barn, my father shouted, “Where are you going?”
I removed my sunglasses and turned towards him. “I’m taking Anna Belle for a ride. I’ll be back in a few hours.”
“Are you going alone?”
“Yep.” I continued forward, and when I strolled by the biker, I gave him a disapproving scowl. “It was a real pleasure.”
Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.
