Series: Carolina Bad Boys #4
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: Erotic MC Romance
Release Date: November 3, 2015
Boomer Steele is big. He’s bad. He’s the Retribution MC pres. He’s been dealt the worst hand imaginable and bears the scars inside and out. Not that anyone knows it. He’s watched his younger brother and sister hook up and hitch up with the loves of their lives, and now he’s the last Steele standing alone. Maybe he should keep it that way.
Then one feisty honey makes him feel, gets in his grill, pisses him off.
She goes by the name of Rayce. And that’s exactly what she does on her motocross bike when she’s not busy getting her hands dirty with her fellow grease monkeys as the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage. She’s into fixing bikes, racing hers, and making Boomer’s life a living hell just for the fun of it. Oh, and she hates being treated like a girl.
Sparks flying? That’s an understatement where these two are concerned. Yet when Rayce needs a place to live, and Boomer offers her a room in his house, their unquenchable attraction wins out over antagonism. Sometimes. Rayce’s crappy upbringing makes her think love is for stupid fools asking for heartbreak. She’s not willing to go there for any man. Not even Boomer Steele.
The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
“Chrome and Steele mixed with grease and a tomboy mechanic that rides a motorcycle…what about that scenario doesn’t get the blood pumping? Once again the amazingly talented Rie Warren creates a world of alpha male deliciousness, humor and sizzling heat with her latest in the Carolina Bad Boys series.” ~Twin Sisters Rockin’ Book Reviews
“I've been following the Bad Boys of Retribution MC series and was looking forward to Boomer's story. Being a big fan of Rie Warren books, I will read anything she writes. I was very excited and surprised to discover that even though this book is from the Carolina Bad Boys series, the main character is the President of Retribution MC andhe's a Steele brother. I'm so glad I didn't accidentally miss out on it by getting my series mixed up. The characters in both series seem to be overlapping and intermingling and it's a win/win for all.” ~Rosa from iScream books

After reading Rie's books, I've been impatiently awaiting bad ass, tatted hottie Boomer's story. Ans walah! I got it. When I first read about Boomer and Rayce in Hunter (BBR#1), I was on the edge of my seat, thinking up scrumptious stories about these two. And let me say, Rie Warren did not disappoint.
Boomer Steele is the eldest of the Steele siblings and president of the Retribution MC. We have Boomer, Brodie (married to Ashe - police detective) and Catarina (the wild cat married to Nick Love - the writer). Boomer's is infatuated with Racy Rayce, a mechanic, with blue streaked pixie hair. What a combination; these siblings fall for their perfect opposites, while raising a little hell themselves.
Rayce and Boomer have been dancing around each other for the longest time. Boomer's been trying to get closer to Rayce while juggling all his responsibilities. Rayce on the other hand, has been trying to stay away. It doesn't mean she isn't into Boomer. She simply has a lot to hide. Her tiny statue is simply a disguise for her loud and sassy attitude. She's big at heart, and knows how to wheel a wrench, covered in greasy coveralls.
When Rayce begrudgingly allows Boomer to take her home one night, she can't help but attempt to hide her shame. She lives on the outskirts of town, in a rusty ratty old trailer with her alcoholic and abusive dad. Boomer is furious when he butts heads with Rayce's father. He can't help punch punch the sh**t out of him. He wants her out of that trailer and away from her neglectful and demeaning father.
As they continue getting acquainted with each other, Rayce's lack of self-esteem starts to surface. She challenges her self worth in the eyes of Boomer and what she would bring to their relationship with him. Nothing, as far as she knows. She came from nothing and has nothing to show, when looking at this MC prez, business and family man. Rayce can't help but feel worthless and starts to question her own life.
I loved the way Boomer's love and devotion shone through. He didn't care about the boundaries of Rayce's upbringing and her current status. He loved her for the woman she is - strong, independent, kind, caring and loving. Now it's up to Boomer to let his light shine on Racy Rayce.
Rie Warren made me fall in love with Boomer and Rayce with her powerful portrayal of unyielding love. Traversing social and financial barriers. These two fought hard, and they loved even harder.
