Review | Bikers & Pearls by Vicki Wilkerson

 Release date: August 12, 2013
 Published by: Bliss an imprint of Entangled
 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Who said tempting a sweet Southern belle would be easy?

When rebel biker Bullworth Clayton gets tangled up with pastel-and-pearls-clad April Church, sparks fly. Sure, April would clearly rather work with anyone else, but if teaming up with Bull means a successful charity event for a sick little boy they both care about, then so be it.

April is baffled at how drawn she is to the leather-wearing, tattooed Bull—he just doesn’t fit with her simple, safe, country-club life. And as much as the handsomely rugged man tempts her, she still can’t shake the images of the tragic motorcycle accident from her past, which left her scarred and her father broken.

Bull tempts her to don a pair of leather pants and go for a ride with him, while April desperately tries to resist her attraction to the wild side and keep her exploits hidden from her small town. Will they be able to navigate their differences and find a middle road to love?

 

What I Thought

Alright, I am going to be honest. At first, I was really annoyed with April, but the more I got to know her and about her hesitations, that more I understood and could see where she was coming from. I also wasn’t so sure about Bull at first, perhaps it was the name, but again, once I got to know him more, the more I developed a little crush on this fictional Harley rider.
I loved that it was more than just a romantic read. It was a journey for both April and Bull, both individually and together. This book was so freeing too! I just loved the feeling I got when April let down the walls she had build so solid all around her. The same for Bull as well. And yes, there were moments that broke my heart and left me wanting to grab the nearest Kleenex, but there were also moments that had me letting out a little laugh, especially the ending.
Perhaps it’s the southerner in me, but I love books that I set near or around where I live because I really can connect to it.
Once again, another Bliss book that I just loved and I can’t wait to read the next!

4 out of 5 stars.

Happy reading!
