It’s the blog tour for Karen Renee’s INCITING A RIOT. Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!
Cary “Vamp” Sullivan earned his Riot MC patch and shoved Lorraine Francis Ingram out of his life six years ago by cheating on her. He’s regretted it ever since because he knew she was a top-notch woman. After mentioning his regrets to his brother, Cal, Vamp suddenly finds himself faced with an opportunity to win Lorraine back. When he runs into her unexpectedly and finds out she has been beaten at the hands of a man, Vamp and his Riot MC Brothers are determined to protect her. Vamp is determined to get her back in his life, and he knows it’s going to be an uphill battle.
Lorraine insists that if any Riot MC Brother is going to protect her, it cannot be Vamp. She gets no promises from the Riot MC, and she finds herself with Vamp at her doorstep. She’s determined there will be no second chances, but her resolve is weakened because Vamp isn’t playing fair, he’s fighting…fighting to win her over.
Once she and Vamp are reunited again, they realize there is a very real threat to them both. Lorraine and Vamp are put to the test to rekindle their long lost love and stay alive.
I rarely read books with cheating – it’s my one hard core rule with love triangle and I rarely change my stance on it!
But it was the blurb of Inciting A Riot that caught my attention – it had something to do with the fact that the hero knew he was making a mistake and now wants a second chance to make up for it!
Lorraine Francis has had the worst luck in relationships – every guy she chooses to move forward with, ends up cheating on her. But no one’s cheating hurt her more than Cary’s – the fourth boyfriend and the only one she fell hard and fast with!
Cary Sullivan aka Vamp earned his place in Riots MC but he purposefully lost the one person who was the best thing that happened to him by acting in the one way she would have never tolerated.
Six years later, they bump into each other – making sure that Vamp knows that he has an uphill battle convincing Frankie that he is serious about her this time!
I went into the book against Vamp – and even though he slowly won me over, I appreciated the fact the Frankie gave him hell, even if she couldn’t resist him physically.
There is an undercurrent of damsel in distress phenomenon, though Frankie took some decisions that I honestly didn’t understand nor did I actually support them. Their relationship is also a roller coaster ride of emotions – the push and pull of the relationship had me dizzy at times.
But what I didn’t like was the fact that Vamp spoke in alpha monosyllables – he said it, so she must trust it. The kind of mistake Vamp made should have had him grovelling on his knees and at least a few heartfelt conversations where he bares his heart – but nope all he did was tell her that he was all in, and that was it along with trying to melt her physically. I just wish Frankie hadn’t given her trust to him that easily.
The writing style of the author has promise – though it is quite choppy at times, and loses it flow at others. Yet I will still check out the next book in the series, if only to see the promise hold up!
