Meet Puck & Becca

First in the new Silver Valley series from the New York Timesbestselling author of the Reapers Motorcycle Club Novels.
Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward--full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That's when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he'd violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.
Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She's been terrified of him ever since, but she's even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She's living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there's only one man she can trust to go with her--the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.
Puck will help her again, but this time it'll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...

Ignoring him, I settled back on my stool and surveyed the room. We sat in Becca’s section, and what I saw wasn’t making me happy. I knew she was a good waitress, but she’d just started here and it showed. Not only had she fucked up several orders, she didn’t quite seem to get the rhythm of the bar. That wasn’t my problem, though.
My problem was that despite these fuckups, nobody seemed to mind. I had a nasty suspicion this was due to her perky tits, friendly smile, and tight little ass that seriously just needed a bite taken right out of it.
She really, really needed to get a new job—every man in the place wanted her. Including me. Especially me. I hated them. All of them. I shifted uncomfortably, because just like every time I shared a room with her, my pants had gotten tight.
Torture. Becca was just so fucking fine on every level, and not just her looks. There was something about the way she carried herself . . . I couldn’t put my finger on it. Like she was dancing through life to some song nobody else could hear. Never met another woman like her—she wasn’t just sexy, she was a survivor and I admired that.
She’d grown up so much since the first time I’d met her. Bigger boobs, a nice fullness to her ass that was nowhere close to fat but would be perfect to hold tight while I fucked her. Her lips had plumped, too, and over the years she’d gained a sparkle in her eyes that turned her from pretty to 100 percent spectacular.
Not to mention how she’d tasted.
Nearly blew in my pants when I’d taken that mouth. Just the memory got me hard. Make that harder. Fucking basket case.
When I’d pulled up to find her sitting outside with Collins, a thousand murder scenarios ran through my mind. And yeah, I know I covered that already, but if anything ever deserved empha- sis, this was it. Collins needed to die. I didn’t care how nice he was. After that I’d throw Becca on the back of my bike and make a run for the hills . . .
Okay, so there were a few problems with the plan, the top one being she hated me. Or she should—I’d certainly given her cause. Boonie nudged me.
“Did I mention you’re pathetic? You want her, take her. Other- wise let it go because you’re an embarrassment to all men in general and to the Silver Bastards in particular.”

First book I've read from Joanna Wylde and it's a winner! I'm so happy I had the chance to review it!!


Silver Bastard is spin-off of her Reapers MC series but if like me you didn't read them it's not a problem, you won't be lost, just be prepare to want to read all her previous book after this one :p


Puck has been away for fourteen months. During that time, he protected the bikers he was a prospect for. And now because he proved himself, he is part of the MC and most importantly he is a free man.
During some sort of party, he get to meet Becca and one thing leading to another, they have sex. But he can tell something is off and when he learns Becca is underage and that her step dad pimped her out, he looses his shit.

He decide to take her with him so she can have another life.


Five years later, Becca has 21 years old and has grown up as a beautiful woman. She has friends, she goes to school, she has an apartment... In short, she has a life.
She knows she owes Puck a lot for saving her life but she's also scared of him. Over the years, they never really spoke but from time to time, Puck is around and he makes sure she is ok.
But it takes just a little incident in the restaurant where she works for everything to change.

See Becca, she is a fierce woman. When she loses her temper, she acts a little irrationally

The tension and electricity when Puck and Becca are around each other is magnetic. There's something unfinished between them.
Puck feels guilty because of what happen. He didn't mean to have sex with a sixteen years old girl but he also feels guilty because he can't stop thinking about her. He wants to be with her; still he doesn't make a claim on her

"... Deep down inside I still felt guilty as fuck about that night. I felt even guiltier because I'd spent the last five years trying to figure out ways to make it happen again"

Becca on the other hand is in complete denial. She knows what her body feels, but she refuses to give in. Mostly she is scared, or maybe it's better to say she doesn't want a life like her mother has. She always lived surrounded by bikers and in a club so she knows too well how it goes. Becca has spent five years to build her life, so it's not to get back and be controlled by someone else. She is not her mother and she never will be


This was my first book from Joanna Wylde but not my first MC book. Yet this one felt different and trust me in a very good way.

The book is of course centered on Becca and Puck but we have a lot of insight of the MC club. We get to know the other members of the Silver Bastard clan and while I'm NOT impatient to have more Deep, I want Demon's book asap!

The fans from the Reaper MC series should also be happy because some of the group made several appearances and you even have an epic scene between Painter and Melanie that didn't really made sense to me BUT made me want to read his book right away. Unfortunately for me his book is the 5th in the Reapers series and I have to wait until November 20415 to have it all figure it out.


On the other hand, I guess I can see it from another perspective. I have until November to catch up on this series and be ready for Painter's book


But now back to Puck and Becca ^^
I won't really talk about all the twist and turn happening here; just know that it's one hell of a ride!

Becca is an interesting character because she could have easily been broken by her past but she decided to be strong. She doesn't grieve on what happened to her, she take a chance and enjoy life as it comes.
Puck is her weakness, every time he is with her, she feels unsure but so protected at once, it's unsettling.

"Meeting you was the best thing that ever happened to me, Puck. Things were fucked up and wrong, but you saved my life. Do you have any idea where I'd be right now if you hadn't come to that party?"

The sexual tension between them was unbearable. Every time you think something is going to happen, something else comes in their way. I was in constant need of more: more kissing, more touching, more connection, more moment when they both surrender, more them together. Period.

Love between Puck and Becca is not easy. Both have to make sacrifices and well Puck is not the kind of man who does that.
He wants and he will have her when he has decided she was his and nothing will stop him


You have like MC book, this one has it all: caveman guys, beautiful girls, brotherhood, protective instincts, evils situations, sexual tension, fab' sex and lots of love.

"We've been in a relationship for five years now" Puck said "it wasn't normal, it wasn't exclusive... Hell I don't know what the fuck it was, but we both know that's the truth. Whatever's between us, it's been there since the first night we met
