Life’s little edge by Roselle Graskey

Very interesting Read. This is an Uber fiction set in a biker community. Callan O’Malley is now a biker no one messes with as well as gun runner. A war hero turned bad, she flies solo and does not want to belong to any clubs. She lives life on the edge and her longest realtionship lasts no more than a week. That is until she “wins” Terri Barclay from her boyfriend at a poker table.

This is a very well constructed fic. The plot is good and believable, and the transition between past and present is well executed. The characters are well built and very likeable. There are definitely plenty of errors but the story pulls you in so much that you won’t care about them. It’s long but you will not care about that either, nor will you skim through ANY part of it because you will NOT be bored at any time. And it will keep you guessing until the end.

It’s probably the most interesting of this genre that I’ve read in a while because of the different setting and fresh approach. HIGHLY recommended.

I Found My Heart In San Francisco: Beginnings by SX Meagher

This is the second part of the on-going tale of Ryan O’Flaherty and Jamie Evans. This story focuses on how each woman deals with the changed status of their relationship. They both have emotional issues that they need to address, while still preparing for finals and the AIDS Ride.

The plot is very good but, as in the first story, sometimes goes on a bit much and I did find myself skimming a bit. The descriptions of the scenery were fantastic but I think many of the conversations the main characters had could have easily been dropped without the reader losing any understanding of the inner workings of the participants.

The AIDS Ride portion of the story was very emotional at times and I admit to crying more than once. It actually made me want to drag my bicycle out of the garage and get back into riding.

There were plenty of mis-used words but the story is good enough to overlook them. I’m going to continue with the series and see where it goes. There was at least one cliff hanger and I’m still interested enough in the characters to keep going.
