Then she starts working. She holds a business degree and works at Dad’s strip club doing the books. So it starts with that because the first time, November meets with a man named Asher Mason. The man is so rude to her, and she’s so sassy back to him, and it’s great. But they don’t show any interest in each other at all.

That’s not how it will happen because this is an adult contemporary romance book, and they won’t hate each other for the whole book. So they realize fate has another plan for them. It goes about that and the struggles that they go through. November is fantastic, and she stands up for herself. But Asher is different. He’s one of those cavemen, alpha-dominant men. It was overprotective in a good way. He cared for her and wanted her to be safe and feel safe. So many things happen in this book, from being attacked.

6. Reaper’s Property

At the beginning of this book, a letter talks about how people did not understand the culture. Reaper’s Property is about a girl who is 22 named Marie. She got married when she was like 19. She got married out of high school to someone she thought she loved and quickly realized it wasn’t who she loved. Her husband was doing bad things to her. So she decided to move in with her brother, who works for the MS gang.

So it flashes back to when Marie first meets the gang and becomes friends with them, especially Horse. Horse is the motorcycle guy. Marie goes back and forth once she starts liking Horse, and they develop a relationship. When her brother betrays the club, Horse gives her an ultimatum. So much of it’s the buildup of the relationship and flashing back between the past and the present.

Suppose you’re new to motorcycle romances because the main character doesn’t know the motorcycle world. So you’re introduced to it along with her. There was much angst here because Horse likes her, and he doesn’t want to admit that because she denied him.

So he obviously would want her to be an old lady. He’s trying to keep his pride and not give them what they want. If you’re new to it, you probably will get into this because it does help explain the embassy world to you. It is the best book about alpha males. The romance is perfect, and I recommend it.

7. Reflected in You

Reflected in You is the second sequel, whereas the first is ‘Bared to You.’ Seven Reasons inspired the series Seven Years. It’s not so much the dominant subordinate thing. It’s more of them needing control because of their past. It gets into Eva’s insecurities about Corey, and it gets into his past. So we work through things in their relationship that is dangerous to one another, like certain dangerous traits. They think that they’re not good enough for the other.

Eva, in this book, regressed quite a bit to an immature over that was not in the first book. She has some petty jealousies that were addressed in the first book. Yet, when she returned to this, it was blowing up again. Gideon is trying so hard to the point where he is the one remembering the couple’s therapy. Many emotions were mentioned when he talked about the doctor’s wife and how he screwed her. I am satisfied with the book’s ending, so I recommend you to read the book.
