Making the Cut by Anne Malcom

Gwen Alexandra does not need a man in her life. Especially not a man who looks like Chris Hemsworth and Joe Manganiello’s love child. One wearing leather, riding a Harley, and covered in tattoos.
Gwen can bet every pair of her Manolos that Cade Fletcher is trouble. From the moment she meets him, the attraction sizzles between them. Gwen has a problem when it comes to attractive men in motorcycle clubs. The last one she got involved with almost killed her.
After healing physically, Gwen decides to get a new start in a small town, half a country away from the man who nearly cost her her life. She isn’t in town five minutes when she runs into Cade, a man that is too sexy and dangerous for his own good.
She tries to keep away from him, to ignore the attraction between them. But the biker has other ideas, soon she is in way over her head. Her heart, and her life are in danger once again.
I wanted to like Gwen. I really did. But the way she is portrayed in this story smacks of “poor little rich girl” at times. And the juxtaposition of her with Cade in all his possessive gruffness is jarring at times. I think that is what I struggled with the most with this book.
Now. Please don’t misunderstand. I’m not saying that I didn’t enjoy the story. I kind of did. But for me, I was conflicted about Gwen and Cade’s connection. And the incessant arguing got on my nerves a bit.
So in summary, this didn’t quite hit the mark for me, but I am intrigued to see where the author goes with the other MC characters.
I voluntarily reviewed a reviewer copy of this book.
Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth, then as she grew up her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing. Finding writing about alpha males and happily ever afters more fun than reading about them, Anne is not about to stop any time soon.
