This is the first book I have read from Harley Wylde and I have to say, I was not disappointed and that Ms. Wylde just gained a new fan. This book was extra steamy, fast paced but super enjoyable. Yeah there was an age difference but who cares Venom and Ridley has scorchingly hot chemistry. Can’t wait to read Torch’s story.
It was a good story but very short. It Should have been longer, the author should have expanded on the drama of what Ridley was running from and how the club delt with the danger. It was all just glossed over. Very disappointed with the book that should have been priced lower that it is! It was interesting but not enough to buy the rest of the series.

I absolutely loved this book. In fact, I wanted more. I think this book could have been longer with a little more back story and more detail in some areas. Aside for those minor details, it was fun, fast, wild, hot, and left me waiting for Torch's story and to see how this MC series plays out. I love MC Romance reads and this one met and exceeded expectations. I highly recommend it!

Ridley was suppose to sold to some one her slimy step dad new. Her mother was all for it so she did the only thing she could do and ran to her Dad who was at the Dixie Reapers. But that is where it gets interesting because she meet Venom and decided he was going to claim her. Yes there is an age difference but age is just a number. They have lots to over come to find their happy ever after. I could not put this book down. It was an amazing start to the series. I highly recommend this book.
If you are looking for raw, dirty time between the sheets then Venom is for you. Venom is VP of Dixie Reapers MC. Ridley is the daughter of Bull a member of the club. When Ridley shows up for protection from an evil man, Venom will be the one who protects her and then claims her. This story is short and to the point. I loved all the raw and dirty parts, I am only giving 3.5.stars because the story was too short and I wanted a little more from each character. Over all a exotic story with lots of dirty talking from an alpha hottie. Happy Reading!!!
For the price I expected great. The potential was there. I can't believe I'm saying this (and I'm a huge Alexa Riley girl) but there was too much sex. Additional character development and story would have made this 5 star. First time reading this author and will buy book 2 next.
Age is nothing but a number, but who could have predicted the intense need Venom had when he say Ridley again after 14 years. The instant chemistry they have is undeniable. When Ridley runs home to her daddy because of some messed up stuff her Mom and husband are doing, it is clear Venom is what she needs and wants.
I enjoyed this short story. I look forward to the next book.
1.0 out of 5 starsA copy and paste of the authors other book!

Book 4 in this series, Bull, was actually the first book I've read by this author and this book is just a copy and paste of it. The author has simply changed is the character names. I'm very disappointed because I enjoyed Bull, although it was a bit lacking. Every phrase in Bull is repeated here, from him wanting her the second he saw her, to wanting her to be his forever after just two seconds, to him wanting to get her pregnant the first time they have sex etc, hjm claiming she has curves that goes on for days, and he was too damn old for her, and her thinking if this was all she could have from him she'd take it, or if she only got this one day with him, fine, and she could have done better than a dirty old biker, but he was keeping her etc. They are all in Bull. Even the girl being afraid of needles when getting her property tattoo and the same sex scene from Bull, with her and asking him to keep his clothes on because it's naughty etc. I am shocked and annoyed that this entire book is just a copy and paste of the authors other book!!!
The sex scenes were terrible! They were so unbelievable, no one can go that many times in one run and they were lacking in detail, just dirty words repeated way too much. As well as being a copy of Bull, this is very repetitive in itself with phrases like, 'my dad must believe I was safe here, I felt safe here, my dad must think I'm safe with Venom, my dad wouldn't let me stay with Venom if I wasn't safe, my dad wouldn't let me stay with Venom if he didn't think I was safe' etc, all on just one page. This writing just isn't good. Scenes lack depth and have no real detail, it's all just a very basic outline for a biker book. I also hated the cover, the guy looks nothing like Venom is described, I mean, that dude looks like a hipster not a biker, and he has a seriously full thick long beard and fancy curling moustache. Nothing like the short neat beard Venom is described as having. I got to chapter five, which by the way is 50% through this very short book, and gave up. It was like I was just reading the same book from before. I will be asking for my money back!!! Not worth the £3.62 I paid! As for the bit we got of the next book, I like an age difference an older man is sexy but a seventeen year old girl wanting a man in his late forties, um, just not believable!
I fell in love with the cover, The book promised a lot but delivered a very short story. The author had the necessary material to have made this into a much longer and much better book in my opinion, the author didn't expand on the drama of what Ridley was running from and never even explained how the club dealt with the danger. It was all just brushed over yet it was the premises for the actual book. So instead of getting value for money good MC Romance , I got a very short and disappointing over priced book with the book! It could have been so much more, If I could give a bit of advice I would pull this book, and re-write it because as it stands there is nothing interesting me enough to buy the rest of the series. Which is a shame. As I love the MC books
Venom (Dixie Reapers MC 1)
Good little story A quick read BUT OH MY it was expensive . I bought this one because I had a. Amazon voucher for Christmas so I thought I use sum for this book . I would like to read the next book as it follows on from this but I don't liked the idea of spending nearly £4 on it .
4.0 out of 5 starsWould be 5 stars but it was a lot of money for such a short book .

I liked this book ,it's fast pace and extremely sexy scenes . But it was very short and this annoyed me . I wanted just a bit more and because of this it has put me off reading anymore of this series . So either reduce the price or make it longer .
