Hot. Feisty. Irresistible. The second Nicole showed up, she was mine. It just took me a little while to admit it.
I know in my gut she’s mixed up in something. Something bad. But now that I’ve claimed her, I’m not letting her go no matter what.
Even if the club doesn't approve.
The only way I can find out who killed my father is to go undercover in the Blood Riders MC. Getting close to Drake was smart.
Falling for him wasn’t.
I can’t quit. Not now, when I’m so close to learning the truth. I just hope Drake can forgive me when he finds out who I really am.
Threat is book one of the Blood Riders MC series with no cheating and a guaranteed happy ending. This book is a full-length dark motorcycle romance novel that's intended for mature audiences only. Reader discretion is advised.
Today we have the book tour for Tia Lewis’s THREAT. We are so excited to share this sexy new MC romance with you!
As V.P. of the Blood Riders MC, Drake is used to calling the shots, getting his way, and sleeping with every biker groupie within reach. When he meets Nicole, her feisty, headstrong beauty pulls him in, even as his instincts warn him she’s hiding something.
Nicole is determined to learn who killed her father, a detective who was investigating the Blood Riders. When the chemistry between her and Drake becomes much more, she’s caught between her desires and her desperate need for answers.
Then her search turns deadly, and Nicole has to put everything on the line―and trust that the man she’s fallen for will forgive her betrayal. Will he come to her defense … or will his eyes be the last thing she ever sees?

This is not Little House on the Prairie where you hold hands and run through the fields. This is real shit.
- Cover- It’s a catchy cover! It’s the type of cover that has me choosing to read this book without even looking at the blurb. Looking at it I knew this would be an MC novel with a sexy alpha male. It’s pretty clear what this book will be about and you get what you see.
- Plot- It was a fast-paced read, that had me wanting more. I’ve enjoyed the overall concept of the story, even though some things needed to be better constructed. It’s a promising beginning for a new series.
- Characters- I like them. Drake is hot and bossy; Nicole is kick-ass and take charge.
- Heat/Romance- This book is hot! The author writes some great descriptive scenes. Their first time has you needing a cold shower afterwards.
- Addictiveness- It was a very fast read for me. I was really into the story and had a hard time putting the book down.
- Plot- It was too fast and full of contradictions. It was full of promises that were not delivered at the end.
- Freshness- I can’t say that I found something new here. It was all very predictable, without any twist. I’ve missed a few plot twists.
Ok. I have really enjoyed the book, but I must point out a few flaws.
I usually don’t mind insta-love, but I believe they must be somewhat coherent. This was not! The girl who first went into the clubhouse was sassy, full of hatred for the group and 12 hours later is ready to jump into someones bed without even some fight. Really, if he was the one starting, maybe it would have been more believable. I understand chemistry, but when you believe that person is responsible for murdering your father, you at least need a few days to truly know him better, so you can start finding some redeemable qualities.
I have also missed some action inside this club. Oh, everybody was ready to fight and at the end they were all drinking and partying all the time. In fact, for a MC book, this is too tame.
If you have been raised by a cop that has spent his life dedicated to get this certain group, that is your hero, than you suddenly become part of this group? It was never really confirmed what they were doing at the clubhouse, but it had to be illegal. So, the ending in another party, didn’t jive with the heroine personality. Ok, she got her “prince”, but she accepted all the illegal stuff? I don’t know, it was too hard to believe in all of it.
I won’t touch you until you beg me to do it. I won’t put my hands on your body until you feel like you’ll die if I don’t. And you will. I promise. And when I do give you what you need, you won’t look at another man again for as long as you live.
You MAY buy this book because you enjoy MC romance; you SHOULD buy this book because you are looking for a promising new series; you MUST read this book if you like your romance HOT!!!
I could have walked away. Hell, I could have run. I could have gotten in a cab and gone home. I didn’t even have a purse with me, only some cash in my back pocket. I hadn’t wanted anybody to find my ID and put two and two together.
I didn’t. I stayed where I stood. Held in place by Drake’s voice.
“Are you going to answer me?” he asked. I turned to him.
“Could we not talk about this right here?” I asked, looking around. “It’s a little public out here.”
“Fine.” He grabbed my arm and pulled me around to the side of the building, where there was no one but us. “Tell me what’s wrong with you.”
“I thought after today you wanted me, is all. And I thought, okay, I’ll make a move. But you made me feel like…”
“Like what? A slut?” He smirked.
“You think this is funny? You’re disgusting!” I raised my hand to slap him, instinct taking over, and his hand was out in a flash to grip my wrist. He had the reflexes of a cat to go with the way he moved.
“That’s more like it,” he murmured. “That’s the real you. Not the one who flashes her tits and tries to come on to me. You’re the girl who tries to hit me because she doesn’t know what else to do to pretend she doesn’t want me.” He leaned in, pushing me back until I was pressed against the sun-warmed bricks of the Clubhouse, still holding their heat from earlier in the day. My body burned the way they did.
“Leave me alone, Drake.”
“You act like that because you don’t like the way I talk to you. You’re not used to guys talking to you that way. But you like it. You like it when I do it, and you hate yourself for it, and you put up walls between us.” His body was against me, all muscle and strength and power. I felt the heat coming from him, too, just like that from the bricks. Sweat trickled down the back of my neck.
“Stop this.” I turned my head away, as his mouth was so close to mine. “Not this way.”
“I don’t like it like this. Stop trying to overpower me. You don’t have to try so hard.”
“And neither do you.” He placed a finger under my chin, turning my head until our eyes met. “I wouldn’t work so hard to get through to you if you didn’t work so hard to keep me away. Why don’t you just give in to what you want? What we both want?”
“And that is what?” I could hardly breathe, my heart was racing so out of control. My knees were jelly, the blood rushing in my ears.
“For me to take you to my room and give you a night you’ll never forget.” He brushed his lips against mine, ever so gently, causing a blazing inferno to erupt and consume me. I leaned further in, closer to him, but he pulled back with a devilish grin.
“See? I know what you want better than you do. And I can give it to you.” He licked his lips. “You want it?”
“Yes,” I breathed. It was so easy to give in. Drake was right.
