Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance, MC RomanceSynopsis: Gabby Morgan isn’t looking for love. Not even a little romance. Following a rocky past that she’d just as soon forget, she’s determined to focus on the future. One that most certainly doesn’t involve the tough-as-nails, short-on-words, hot-as-hell biker…or his kid. Blake Mahone may not be done with women, but he’s finished with relationships. Then Gabby Morgan enters the picture. She’s flawless, refined, and as his kid’s teacher, way out of his league. She acts like she hates him, but her eyes tell a different story. Before he knows it, Blake finds himself hot for teacher, and he’s more than ready to learn all her secrets. Now all he has to do is convince her to give him a shot…without getting them both killed in the process.

This was my first book by J.C Valentine, and I was blown away with how much I enjoyed her writing. I'm already looking forward to getting more from this series and also the author.
The book follows Blake Mahone as he tries to settle into fatherhood, taking care of his kid at the same time he has to take care of his club. He fumbles around a bit in his responsibilities before meeting Gabby Morgan, his sons teacher. His son instantly takes a liking to her, but for Blake it's hard to trust another female in his life so he does his best to push her away. Gabby doesn't give up easily, though, not once she realizes what a special person Blake is.
I'm a huge fan of MC books but there are times where the actual story gets lost in all the going ons of the Club, and that definitely didn't happen with this book, which was refreshing. I really liked this story and how focused on the main characters it was. Their story never got pushed to the background, instead staying strong throughout the whole book. Gabby and Blake were both great characters and seeing their differences bring them together was very intriguing.
Overall, this author just became one of my automatic buys and is on my stalk-like-crazy list. I can't wait to see what direction she takes this series in but I already know it's going to be great.
