My Review:

Ransom ( Aces & Eights Motorcycle Club Book 1)Ransom by Logan Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
So the truth is I wasn’t sure what this book was going to be about. I just knew it was an MC novel. Was it romance? Was it suspense? Was there violence? Since I have read both of these authors before, I knew I was likely going to enjoy this novel. If I were to judge this book by the cover, I would not guess it was a sugary sweet romance.

It wasn’t sugary and it wasn’t sweet. I don’t even think I would call the relationships between the two mains and their girls, romantic. Liam and Rory did love their girls, though. Ransom had passion, protectiveness, possessiveness, and the intimacy was sexy and erotic. Yes there was violence too.

Liam and Rory are two of six brothers. All six are members of the Aces & Eights motorcycle club. The bothers are close and protective of one another. They are all loyal ‘brothers’ of the MC club as well. As I said, this book is not sugary, not sweet, not very romantic. There are real and dangerous circumstances going on throughout. There is violence. There is blood. There is retribution and death.

You do not mess with the Aces & Eights or those they care about.

Throughout the book we will have alternating POVs from the heroes only, Liam and Rory Fox. Even though I felt the main focus for both men was their ladies, there really isn’t a lot of interaction with them, considering. I did not mind the lack of relationship development since I was engrossed with the suspense and action aspects. I will say that despite the fact we really don’t get much interaction with Fallon and Audrey, it is explained that there is previous history between them and the men.

But I will say this again…..don’t get on the brother’s bad side!

A few incidents occur that I didn’t expect and was surprised. Some of the story was a little predictable for me. That’s not a bad thing. Since this book is fast-paced and can be read in a few hours, I won’t give away any spoilers; I won’t tell you what my predictions were. Truthfully, I’m a guesser. My curious mind is always trying to figure the plots out. It’s how I read.

I loved this book! I really did!

The story is full of action and sexiness and a half dozen alpha Fox brothers. 😉

I know that with the short length of this book, only so much can be told/explained. However, I wish there was at least a small amount of backstory on each brother. For example, some inferences were made but I would have liked to know descriptions of age, persona, etc. Considering Ransom is the first book in the series, I expected a bit more than we got. But like I said, it was a short book and only so much can be said in that length.

I have read a lot of MC novels. The authors did a great job of giving us a realistic picture of what MC clubs are like. The details were believable, they fight scenes were also done well. I felt like I was there and damn if I didn’t chew off a couple of fingernails.

That said, there are more brothers and more books. I can’t wait to find out what is next for Aces & Eights, Fox brothers. Especially one in particular…I have a soft spot for Keagan. 😉
