Jack "Preacher" Prior is at a crossroads - literally. Left for dead in the Badlands, he's managed to survive. He's stolen a truck, but where can he go? Body broken, mind reeling from betrayal by his own MC brothers, he knows he won't last a day back in Rapid City in his current condition.
Erin Walker is at a crossroads of her own. Dealt a bad hand by being the daughter of Buck Walker, ex-rodeo champ, she's made her own way in the world without his help. She owns Thunder Ridge Ranch outright, and she's carved out a piece of paradise for herself with her own two hands. She's not giving it up without a fight, but she's alone in the world, with no one to trust.
In Erin, Preacher finds something that doesn't exist in his own world: a smart, fierce, independent woman who sets his blood on fire. For Erin, the mysterious man who threatens her life might very well be the only one who can save it.
Contains mature themes.

Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!
What a captivating, and heart warming story! West has done it again! After listening to the Burnout series, I was excited to learn about the spin off, Rapid City Stories, and it's first story, Preacher. West does an outstanding job developing a plot that is well balanced with humor, drama, violence, steamy sex scenes with plenty of dirty talk, and a awesome HEA. What I liked even more than the plot, was the character development.
As leader of a MC club, Preacher has done a lot of bad things in his life, but when he is left for dead, he is forced to leave Rapid City to recover, and plot his revenge. He eventually finds himself on a ranch where he meets Erin. Their first encounter is not on the friendliest of terms, but they will soon learn they both need each other. Erin is strong independent women who is trying to prove she can make it, but in reality she needs assistance to run the ranch, and Preacher is the perfect person. As the days pass, and these two become closer, we see Preacher's character transform from the harden biker to a loveable man who is crazy about his women and dog. Their journey was fun to hear unfold, from the laugh out loud moments, playful banter to the steamy sex scenes. You can't help but to fall in love with these two characters. When trouble comes knocking, Preacher will whatever it takes to keep Erin safe.
Mason Lloyd did outstanding job narrating this story, and was able to portray the characters, and emotions flawlessly. I sure hope there are plans to release West's other series in audio! I'm definitely on-board for any future books by the West/Lloyd team!
I loved this book. It made me laugh and even shed a tear or two. I REALLY like the narrator. I will be listening to it again without a doubt. I loved how the brought in a few of the characters from the Burnout series. Nice to see Jack and Chris patch things up. Finally Rawlings gets what he deserves!!!! There were a few inconsistencies. and editing was a bit weird in a few instances but over all I really loved it.
Jake! He was sweet and protected his family. Loving and strong.
I LOVED the fight between Jake and the rooster! I LOVED IT! It was hilarious. I laughed so hard i cried. "Cock-a-doodle-do Mother Fucker!" LOL!
I laughed mostly and my heart was touched, with a little teardrop here and there.
Very good writing.
Addicted to Audible! I'm always listening to something.
Preacher is the president of a biker gang called the Buzzard's. The Buzzard's own the "drug trade" in Rapid City. The book is about gang life, prostitutes, and dirty cops. And of course change. I won't say I was disappointed in his character. His character was fairly well written. I didn't care for the story line.
This is the first book I've listened to from Dahlia West. I purchased it based on the reviews and story line. This book was too violent and sexually crude for me. If this book is typical of her writing, I won't be listening or reading any more of her books. I regret finishing it and not returning it after the first 2 chapters.
I haven't listened to Mason Lloyd before. I liked the performance he gave, even though I didn't like the story.
I would have cut the scene in the beginning when Preacher Killed two of his gang members for betrayal.
At times I found it hard to follow what was going on. There were moments where Preacher is remembering his past, however there was no lead in to that memory. The first time he started a memory I actually backed up the story thinking I had missed something. The author did this several times throughout the book, each time I kept thinking I was lost. Without giving a spoiler alert, I didn't care much for the ending. I could come up with at least two other possible endings which would have made more sense.
I really enjoyed this book!!! Great narrator and good story line! I would suggest listening/reading the Burnout series first - it gives you a little insight on some of the characters. This book kept my interest from beginning to end! Love , romance, suspense and HOT scenes - loved it!!
I really liked all of the books in this series but this was one of my favorites. Fast easy listen. Keeps interest from beginning to end. Narration excellent.
My name is Irene and I'm a lifelong bookaholic. A few years ago, I started adding audiobooks and I'm so happy I joined Audible in 2015 :-))
This story turned out way better than I expected it to be. Jack is every bit the bad man he thinks he is. He's betrayed; he makes it to Erin's ranch to take her truck and regroup; he ends up protecting her from another predatory male; his life alters. I would read other books by West. Glad I purchased as Kindle with audio - big recommend! Lloyd works as narrator.
I loved the Burn Out series and hated that I was done listening to the whole series in like a week. I love these books because all the books take place over long periods of time no one is broken and repaired in 2 weeks living happily ever after.
Fantastic on all counts, best book of the series. I love, love love Mason Lloyd as a narrator. I could listen to this all over again. some good jokes and puns from earlier books, the overlap and tie in very well.
I have liked all of these books and this is no exception. Performed beautifully by Mason Lloyd. I will be sad if thete are no more in this series.
