Alexx Andria delivers a motorcycle club romance between two very bad, yet sexy men and a woman with enough curves to satisfy them both. My name is Zoe Delacourte. I thought I was going to build my future on the backs of Jax Traeger and Hunter Ericksen -- bad boys from the wrong side of the tracks, running the notorious motorcycle club, the Kings of Asphalt -- in my mind, the story had practically written itself. I was so naive. Little did I know they were going to change everything I ever knew about myself. Jax and Hunter. I can't even say their names without trembling. They don't see a fat girl or a girl who might be pretty if only she'd lose some weight. No, from the moment I walked into their club, they saw a hot, sexy woman with curves for days -- and they couldn't wait to get their hands on me. Some people call them bad men. They see the rides and the rap sheets and they slap a label on them. I don't care what they've done -- all I care about is what they're going to do to me next. But loving them is dangerous. In fact, loving them might just get me killed. *The following MC romance is approximately 41,000 words featuring a strong central love story, danger, and the rough, seedy world dominated by two bad boys and their curvy woman.

Zoe Delacourte thought that landing an interview or some insider information from Jax Traeger and Hunter Ericksen would land her some recognition and perhaps a feature story that would skyrocket her to the top. She knew plenty about Jax and Hunter from what she’s read and from the pictures she’s saw but the Internet was limited and didn’t want to tell her the information that she wanted to know.
She went into their clubhouse thinking she could get information about the death of one of The King’s members, but instead she finds herself caught in-between Jax and Hunter. She’s naïve and inexperienced so she doesn’t expect it when both Jax and Hunter find her irresistible. Instead of seeing her as fat or overweight, they see a woman with curves they can grab onto. Both brothers are tired of women that are too skinny and do too many drugs and find they are unable to stay away from Zoe.
It was supposed to only be one night they spent together and even after they find out that Zoe is a reporter, they can’t seem to get their minds off of the firecracker that landed in their arms. Zoe is a distraction they do not want and cannot afford especially with their biggest payday looming in the near future. But no matter how much they try, they cannot stay away from her and it doesn’t help matters that she won’t let the story go and continues to stick her nose where it doesn’t belong.
Their passion is explosive, their need for Zoe is one they cannot resist, but will Zoe’s curiosity get her killed before she even discovers what’s really happening between her and the two bad boys that can’t seem to get enough of her?
I loved this story. It was a little short for my taste, but it was full of passion and there was even some mystery involved surrounding the murder of one of the members of The Kings MC. Zoe was an amazing heroine who could hold her own and didn’t back down from a challenge and Jax and Hunter were just as bad ass as they made themselves seem at the beginning of the book. There were a couple of things I didn’t like. The first was the fact that there was no actual distinction in terms of where each chapter began. Instead of the traditional “Chapter” header, there was nothing and it kept switching POV so you really have to pay attention to who is speaking when their turn comes around. The other issue I had was that some of the words I didn’t understand. That’s just perhaps something on my part that I didn’t like. I had to stop a couple of times and look up words because for the life of me I couldn’t figure out what they meant. Because of this I have to lower my rating to a 4. Overall it was a great book and I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.
