Being fearless has never looked so good . . .

Aubrey Evans needs to get her life back on track after her father is indicted for embezzlement. All she has to do to hightail it out of small-town Tennessee is save up money for college tuition and steer clear of hard-muscled boys on motorcycles. Yet there's no ignoring someone like Zion. A knight in black leather, Zion looks like every bad idea she's been told to avoid, but she can't resist him. Whenever she's in trouble, he's there. Appealing as his rough exterior may be, it's the protective, principled man beneath who tempts her like crazy.

Zion knows Aubrey doesn't intend to stick around. She claims to want only friendship, but he senses there's a naughty girl hiding on the inside—one whose intense desires match his own. For now, he'll be patient and play by her rules. But he knows it's just a matter of time before he weakens her resolve.

As they join forces to figure out who's behind a local crime spree, it's clear that the danger goes deeper than Aubrey guessed. And when she needs someone tall, dark, and undaunted to keep her safe, Zion intends to be there—now and always.

“You’re safe, Red,” he said in a softer voice. “I’ll take you to grandmother’s house.”

He watched me, obviously waiting for something.

The best my drunken brain could offer was, “The Big Bad wolf eats Red.”

He paused, grinned, and patted the seat. “You’re too drunk for that too.”

I blinked at him. Then his words sunk in, and I gasped. I hadn’t meant that, but now that he planted the idea in my mind, I couldn’t speak.

“You’re safe with me,” he promised, and then he patted the tiny seat behind him.

I wanted to tell him that I didn’t want to be safe, not after he’d planted such forbidden images in my mind. I yanked my mind out of the gutter and climbed onto the motorcycle, wrapped my arms around his waist, and tried not to shiver. I shouldn’t like the way he talked, but I did. I liked the whole package: the rescue, the insinuations, the motorcycle.
Maybe alcohol and fumbled petting with Quincy just skewed my judgment so severely that Zion seemed more tempting than he actually was. I wasn’t sure. I also didn’t think it mattered. By tomorrow, I would be too sober to think about kisses or any of the other things he might be good at doing.

He pulled my arms tighter around him, holding my hands together on his very taut stomach. It was a little embarrassing that being on the back of his Harley was doing far more for my libido than all of Quincy’s—and every other man’s before him—effort.

“Hold on, Red.”



                                                                                     (My Thoughts)


Undaunted is the first New Adult MC Club novel I've read since Katie McGarry's Nowhere But Here that I have truly fell in love with. The suspenseful, intense storyline, the awesome characters, and of course the beautiful, steamy romance—I loved it all. I also enjoyed how the Southern Wolves Motorcycle Club are family based with fathers, Uncles, sons and cousins and the same goes for the main character, Aubrey (Red). She lives with her grandmother, Maureen, who's definitely not your sweet little old granny knitting your booties. With that being said, these MC club bikers are as badass as it comes.

Aubrey is the good girl with bad parents. Aubrey has to go live with her grandmother when her dad is caught embezzling. Aubrey’s not upset with the part about living with her grandma, she’s mad about her frozen college fund. After she's done the right thing and lived by parent's rules her whole life, she’s now thinking maybe it's time for the bad girl to break the rules and a taste the sinful ways of life, and what better way than the gorgeous, dangerous MC Club Enforcer that was made for sin, Zion (Killer).

Zion is known as Killer, the Enforcer of the Southern Wolves MC Club. And he has his eye on good girl Aubrey, who Killer calls Red. Zion knows there's a dirty girl trying to let loose in Aubrey and he wants to be the man who sets her free. Except, there's this one little rule: Aubrey is forbidden fruit to Zion. For Zion, rules are made to be broken, but this one is a MC Club rule. And with this MC club rule standing in Zion's way, it gives room for another to try and stake a claim on Aubrey.

Okay, readers. I gave you a tiny sweet taste of the romance between Aubrey and Zion, but there's also an amazing hang-onto-the edge suspense storyline going on with some illegal stuff, and another romance between the MC presidents and Maureen the grandma. Like I said, she’s not the kind of a grandma who knits.

Ronnie Douglas is another author that I have to give praise to and say well done for knowing how a New Adult should be written. I definitely love Undaunted MC Club New Adult Romance novel just as must as Nowhere But Here and I highly recommended it as a must read.
