Unruly by Ronnie Douglas
Knights in Black Leather #2
New Adult, Biker Romance
Releasing: February 23, 2016
The second novel in Ronnie Douglas’ sexy Southern Wolves motorcycle club series—reminiscent of Kristen Ashley and Jay Crownover—tells the story of an aspiring fashion designer and a biker who discover a desire that knows no limits.
When the daughter of one of the Southern Wolves gets a flat in the middle of a thunderstorm, there’s only one thing to do—strip down to her underwear and get a little muddy. But when Alamo, the sexy biker shows up to rescue Ellen yet again, things are bound to get a whole lot dirtier.
Between the trouble he left behind and club rules, Alamo knows he needs to stay clear of Ellen. He’s not looking for a woman or complications—even when that woman is everything a man could want. Unfortunately, Ellen isn’t playing by anyone’s rules but her own these days, and a Southern woman who’s been raised by Wolves is awfully hard to deny.
So when they give in to their raging attraction, both get much more than they bargained for.
This is the second book in the Knights in Black Leather series but can be read as a standalone novel. Overall, this is an enjoyable book. I love MC romances so when I saw I was approved to review this one I was really excited. Maybe it’s the hard and tough male leads, or the motorcycles in general. Either way, MC’s are my go to when I need something a bit different in my novels.
In terms of romance, this one is a slow burn. A lot or romance readers like when the romance is immediate, so be aware that this isn’t the case with this one. Instead of “love at first sight” or “being immediately in love”, Ellie and Alamo (the two main figures in this book) take their time. It is pretty clear early on that there will be something between these two. After all, they are both clearly attracted to one another. However, the plot takes its time in bringing these two together and instead, fills us readers in more on how they feel in their heads rather than bringing them together immediately. This is mainly due to the fact that Alamo believes Ellie already has a man and Ellie believing he doesn’t like her. While this is a bit different than the other romance and MC novels out there, I have to say I found it refreshing. I don’t always want to see the two main characters coming together so fast- its not always realistic. So this was fine with me and brought me a bit more “suspense” when reading it.
The characters in this novel are well written. I loved Ellie’s personality. She is not a sweet and naïve character rather; she is a total badass. This works because she was brought up in the MC world so she’s tolerant to this type of personality and behavior. Alamo is not your typical MC either. He doesn’t step on peoples toes to get what he wants and this is apparent in the way he and Ellie are within the story. Although he is loyal, he is also a pretty charming character. I enjoyed him a lot. Some of the secondary characters got on my nerves a bit, but that’s what bring drama into the story making it whole. Therefore, all the characters pleased me in a way and I enjoyed seeing how they came about throughout the book.
Overall, this is a great story and I look forward to reading more of Douglas’s books in the future. If you like MC novels with a dash of romance and a lot of angst than this is your book! Check it out.
