So I started this by reading Razer’s Ride, Viper’s Run and Knox’s stand and Sex Piston, Teased, Tainted, Shade’s Fall, King, Cash’s Fight, Fat Louise, Riot, Shade, Stand Off, Lucky’s Choice, Keeping What’s His, Merry Blissmas, Hostage. Winter’s Touch, Train’s Clash, Standing His Ground, Crazy Bitch and now Rider’s Revenge. I would highly reccommend reading it in the order I have just put above because the series is so much better that way! You will get the full story for this series and honestly it’s great.
This will contain spoilers.
So Rider’s book is one I was looking forward to so much and honestly I felt really let down by it all. I expected more from Rider’s books he’s always been a really big part of all the other novels so I expected his to be amazing and fabulous and it just wasn’t and it really disappointed me. I wish we had discovered the real Rider and not the one that puts on a front for every different person. He deserved better.
I love me some Last Riders revenge and do our boys know how to dish it out good. Rider fighting is extremely hot and damn all the men fighting are hot I just clearly have no self control when it comes to these man. So when Gavin rocked up I was like yesss my baby back home where he belongs. The way he deals with Crash I think says everything about who Gavin is about a person, if someone put you in the circumstances that Gavin was put in and you had the chance to do whatever you want to them and you don’t take that opportunity I think that says a lot. Gavin instead of making Crash suffer just snaps his neck and kills him.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Shade is legit Cupid and he does his job amazingly of playing Cupid. I am also very amused that all the married men are trying to get Rider married so they leave their women alone I find hilarious. The reactions to Rider being able to fool the women is hilarious and it amuses me to no end.
So we found out in another book I believe that Jo was raped in school by Curt Dawkins and when Jo was telling Rider about her ordeal god it broke my heart slightly.
Although these two didn’t have the instant chemistry I really did like how it grew and how their relationship bonded especially when Jo got sick. Rider took care of her and Train plowed the snow for her because she was too poorly. Not only that Rider fixed everything in her house and I loved that he just wanted to take care of her and the issues and it was cute.
I really like that Jo told Rider the truth about what Aly was planning and that Jo was part of it and she didn’t want to be but Aly wouldn’t let her out of it. I was glad when she finally told the truth.
Jo and Rider bonding over the bikes and cars, I love that we finally see a woman in these novels that have interests in the car and bikes. Jo and Jewell fighting was absolutely hilarious. I also loved how Jo and Gavin talked like they did I thought it was a nice touch especially how frustrated Rider is because Gavin isn’t really talking to him.
So we get to see Rider watching the security cameras and it is hilarious when Jo is with him when they are watching them. I also thought it was very amusing that the men are still provoking Lucky and Shade had to explain to Jo why when Shade called in his favour for Rider to take the beating this month. True friendship right there.
So it all got very serious very fast. Aly attacking everyone. What I loved in this was Rider yelling at Gavin to save his woman it wasn’t something I was expecting and I love that it’s the way that Rider finally gets through to Gavin and it’s for him to save her woman. I just loved it in that moment because they all knew that Gavin would come through for them.
So one of my favourite things in The Last Riders is how much all the members love to watch the men taking shit from the women but hate when it happens to them it is hilarious.
Rider’s jealousy is very surprising, considering he shares so much in the other books and doesn’t want to share Jo I found very surprising also kind of out of character for the man that we knew in all of the other books.
Again some of those epilogues we didn’t need, we didn’t need to know that Rider dies like I would have been happy without that! Like your girl here didn’t need to know that. It happens quite a bit that I just forget that the last epilogues exist because it’s just too much!
So again my main feeling about this was very disappointed but it was okay I still enjoyed it I just wish he had better.
