His Young Queen by Tiff P. Raine
Steel Jackals MC #1
Synopsis: Her mother’s drug addiction forced Tish O’Malley to grow up too early. It forced the two of them to move around constantly, so that no place felt like home. When the clouds finally parted and Tish found shelter and happiness for the first time in her life, her mother’s addiction was there to take that away, too.
After three long years, Tish’s sun returns to Queen Creek, and her secret love for this man nearly twice her age surges and is revealed when she makes an offer that shocks them both. An average man would have difficulty passing on a young, innocent woman willing to do anything to please him. How will a fierce alpha biker who has spent the last thirty-six months in prison fare?
Pretty damn well, Tish soon discovers. Because he’s Josh “The Guardian” Sylvan, the Steel Jackals’ viciously loyal Sergeant at Arms. But will Tish’s protector have what it takes to stand by his instant and brutal rejection of the woman she’s become? Or will he cave despite his best efforts to resist the one female who should never have made it on his radar?
His Young Queen is book #1 in the Steel Jackals MC Series and the first book I have read by this author. I was gifted an ARC to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
I like my books dirty, sexy and packed full of bossy alpha men and this book is dirty, sexy and has a seriously bossy alpha man.
Josh has a filthy mouth and the dirty talk is brilliantly rude and this book is ALL ABOUT THE SEX!!!
Yep it’s ALL ABOUT THE SEX, BOUT THE SEX, NO STORY!!!
This is literary porn because honestly the storyline is seriously thin!!
Tish the oldest, most eloquent six year old in the world after dealing with her drug addict mother for years, meets Josh when she is ten and he is twenty eight. He looks after her and cares for her as a child but they are separated when Tish is 16 and Josh is arrested for possession of drugs.
He is released from prison four years later and basically they go at it like rabbits.
This is a novella and unfortunately the curse of the novella strikes again.
This would have been a fantastic full length novel; it would have been great to have a story that extended past the bedroom and to really get to know the characters.
As word porn goes this is great, it gets the job done. There’s sex, dirty talk, some Dom/sub hints, oral sex, outdoor sex, a nod to anal basically every base is covered. But there was no depth; it was sex for the sake of sex because I didn’t feel the connection between Josh and Tish was anything deeper than obsession.
Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed this book, I love some good smut but it just could have been deeper and more intense.
His Young Queen gets 3.5 Stars from me.
