Review – ‘Sweet Perdition’ by Cynthia Rayne

Blurb 

Good girl gone bad.
Elizabeth, a small-town librarian, knows she doesn't belong in the notorious biker bar. But after watching her best friend marry her ex-boyfriend, she's drinking her cares away and saying adios to her good girl ways.

Ryker can't take his eyes off the gorgeous, curvy redhead at his club's bar. He suddenly has a taste for good girls, just for one night, of course, because Ryker doesn't do relationships. Ever.
But when Elizabeth's ex threatens her, Ryker realizes he'll do anything to keep her safe and he might just lose his heart in the process.
 


Review
 
In the first book of the Four Horsemen MC series, Elizabeth goes to a local biker bar to drown her sorrows after attending the wedding of her ex-boyfriend and ex-best friend. Ryker, an incredibly yummy biker, hits on her with only one thought in mind: to get into her pants. He succeeds but soon realizes one night isn’t going to be enough with the proper librarian. He wants to corrupt her and free her wild side, and she wants him to!
The H/h have a lot of chemistry and the sex scenes were very hot. I was really liking the story until Ryker cheats on Elizabeth. She catches him making out with two near-naked women at a party, but he keeps on dancing with them, thinking he’s free to sleep with whomever he wants because he and Elizabeth aren’t dating (at least they aren’t in his mind). Elizabeth is hurt and angry but continues sleeping with him before they work out their problems.
The overall plot is great. The biker club is pretty big, but we don’t meet many of the other members. Shepherd is the VP, Eddie is Ryker’s mom, and they both tried to scare Elizabeth off, thinking she wasn’t strong enough to handle a ladies’ man like Ryker.
Though I enjoyed the author’s voice and her storytelling, the typos were distracting (mostly misspellings, and missing words, periods, and quotation marks). I don’t read many motorcycle club books because cheating seems to be a common theme, at least in the MC books I’ve heard of, but since I found this one and the second book in the series as part of a 2-book set, I’ll check out the next book as well.
