Get ready to ride . . . 

Tyra Masters has had enough drama to last a lifetime. Now, she's back on track and looking forward to her new, quiet life. Until she meets the man of her dreams. The tattooed, muscled biker plies her with tequila-and the best sex of her life. She knows it isn't the tequila and hot sex talking. He's the kind of man she's always wanted. Unfortunately, he's also her new boss . . . 

Kane "Tack" Allen has a rule. He doesn't employ someone he's slept with. So when he learns he spent last night in bed with his new office manager, he quickly fires Tyra. Yet when Tyra stands up to him and fights for her job, Tack is intrigued. He tells her she can keep her job on one condition: no more sex. Ever. But as things heat up between them, Tack finds that he'll be the one breaking all the rules...


My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

My Thoughts:

My first introduction to Tack and Tara was through the Chao’s MC books. I knew that their story was part of a different series (Dream Man) so after reading the Chaos books I decided I had to go back and read Motorcycle Man so that is what I did.

Before reading Motorcycle Man, I liked Tara and really liked Tack. After reading Motorcycle Man I want to nail Tack’s balls to a wall. He really slipped in my estimation, but Tara kind of rose as Tack fell.
Why?
Well, Tack is a jackass. Seriously. Tara was nothing special to him until she basically told him to go fuck himself. If she hadn’t, the whole freaking book wouldn’t have occurred and Tack would have continued on banging every skank that batted her eyes at him like he did the day after sleeping with Tara. I can’t get over the fact that he wasn’t even sorry for it! Okay, he felt bad eventually, but I don’t remember reading he was actually sorry for it - regretted it. I totally understand why Tara was hung up on the fact he threw her out of his bed and didn’t even kiss her goodbye while letting a biker groupie spend the following night and kissing <i>her</i> goodbye in the morning. Then the arrogance of him when he thinks he can just start chasing Tara after that with no fall out... It was beyond me. I don’t care that he eventually realised the damage it caused and I don’t care about everything he did for her after, it totally tainted Tack for me.

Beyond this, I liked it. Nothing was new or surprising because the major points of Tack and Tara’s story were rehashed in recollections in the Chaos books. That didn’t stop me enjoying them first hand, it just meant that it was slipping on something warm and comfy as opposed to something new. 

Well worth a read for the KA initiated or KA newbies.
