Series: Mayhem #1
Author: Shyla Colt
Genre: Adult, MC Romance
Release Date: January 23, 2015

Recovered from an abusive relationship, Juliette Moore is ready to live life on her own terms. Successful, intelligent, and slightly timid, she makes a pact with her best friends to seize the day. She gets more than she bargained in the tall, dark, and dangerous biker, Shooter.

Together they weather life storms and find common ground as they merge their two very different worlds.

Maya's Review

I'm so glad I finally got to read a book from this author. Her books have been in my wishlist for some time and when the chance to read this one came up I had to grab it. I'm so glad I did.

I read the occasional biker romance and all the ingredients are there but with a difference. Juliette and Shooter are such contrasting characters. Juliette a librarian who has lived restricted life. I could relate to her, even imagine her as a friend. I loved her interactions with her friends, strong, successful women who needed to live a little.

When Shooter comes along, he is the opposite to her and yet Juliette is drawn to him because of all the things he is. He doesn't hide the danger that surrounds him. He makes her feel safe. Shooter sees the woman beneath exterior and knows they have a connection beyond just the physical need they both can't run from. I loved these two together. Their chemistry is amazing and watching them fall in love was just great. Of course things don't go smoothly because Juliette's ex comes back and he doesn't play nice. This is where I totally loved Shooter.

Overall, a great read. I'm so looking forward to more from this author and the Lord of Mayhem series.

Excerpt from The Biker's Librarian © Shyla Colt

“Take a walk with me,” Shooter said guiding her away from the noisy clusters of people nearby and out onto the trail. With the rich green of the forest broken up by wildflowers it had the potential for romance, if only the air between them wasn’t strained by stress so thick it rivaled taffy. “We choose to live this way and expect to be able to do so freely. That’s what Moose meant back there. I know it’s a lot to take in, and I‘d be stupid to not consider that this may not be for you. All I ask is you keep an open mind and keep your judgments to yourself.”
“Who said I was judging?”
“Aren’t you?”
“I’m trying to wrap my head around it everything. It’s like I walked into Oz or something. The people I know don’t live like this.” Confusion shone bright in her eyes.
“You want me to take you home?”
“No, I want you to explain why I’m here in the first place. I’m not your kind of girl.”
“Maybe that’s why? You’re the kind of girl I used to go for once upon a time. I thought I was over with that, but then you come along and fill my mind with what ifs. I’m not a man who believes in regret, so I took a shot and went for it. I’m not going to treat you like one of the biker bunnies, if that’s what you’re worried about. I do know how to treat a woman.”
“I know. That’s the problem.” She huffed. “You’re like two men in one body. The biker whose large, intimidating, and most definitely dangerous, but there’s also the man who holds open my door, puts his hand on the small of my back when we walk and for some God awful reason, makes me feel safe. It’s been a long time since I felt that way with a man.”
“You can have both parts of me, but you can’t have one without the other.”
“I know.” She glanced down. “ But I’m not sure I’m equipped for this lifestyle.”
“That’s for you to decide.” He placed a finger under her chin and forced her to meet his gaze. “I’m not going to be strung along so I suggest you figure it out fast. I’m going to ask you again. Should I take you home?”
Two heart beats passed.
“No, I don’t want you to take me home. I want to stay.”
He grinned. “Then relax, and enjoy yourself. I want to show you what life is like when you’re with me.”
“I get the feeling it’s going to be one hell of a ride with you, biker.” She tilted her head back and flashes an almost shy smile.
“I think you can learn to love the walk on the wild side librarian.” She leaned forward and he bent down capturing her full lips. He thrust his tongue inside her mouth and moaned at the taste of her. She was lightness, sweetness, and sunshine, a ray of purity in his dark world. His soul rejoiced. His jeans grew tight. He deepened the kiss, seeking more of the soul nourishing vibrations she offered freely. He slid his hand down her back and cupped her thick ass. She gasped. He swallowed the sound greedy for more of the woman who made him feel. His soul ignited and he knew in his gut he wouldn’t be able to let her walk away. He wanted to explore the connection that existed between him. The intensity of her lure was so strong he’d broken his rule about getting close and hadn’t’ looked back.
She pressed her hips against his, gripping the edges of his cut. They moved their heads this way and that, exploring. His dick turned to granite. She rocked her hips and he pulled away, sucking in air.

“Unless you want me to lay you down here and now I think we’d better stop.”
Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She’s always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration. 

After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there’s never a dull moment in her household. 

She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
