Cyclops By Harley Wylde
Book/Novel Author: Harley Wylde
Book/Novel Title: Cyclops
Leigha — To say my dad is overprotective is too mild a description. Add in all my honorary uncles in the Dixie Reapers MC and going on dates is next to impossible. So when Lyssa invites me to visit her at the Reckless Kings in Tennessee, I jump at the chance. Maybe I can finally experience life a little. I know my family goes after bad men, the kind who hurt women and kids. I never counted on becoming a victim myself. The biker who comes to my rescue is… scary. Hot. And all alpha. He’s exactly what I need!Cyclops — My stint in the military left me a parting gift. Scar tissue that not only left me blind in that eye, but makes the damn thing look spooky as fuck. I’m used to people staring. Mostly. Then my brothers had to stick me with the road name Cyclops. They’re not funny, even if they think they are. Uncle Sam may no longer find me fit for duty, but it doesn’t mean I’m useless. When I hear a scream, I don’t hesitate. Thought I was saving a girl. Turns out she’s a woman — and one I shouldn’t touch. The daughter of a Dixie Reaper, she’s her daddy’s little angel… and damn if I’m not tempted to lure her to the dark side and get her a little dirty.WARNING: Cyclops is part of the Reckless Kings MC series. It contains an age-gap relationship of more than 10 years, violence, bad language, and adult situations. Some readers may find the subject matter difficult to read. But there’s a guaranteed happily-ever-after, no cheating, and no cliffhanger!
Fans of Christine Feehan’s Torpedo Ink series or other motorcycle club romance books will love Harley Wylde’s Cyclops, the fifth book in the Reckless Kings MC series. A fast paced, action-packed story – I found myself invested in the romance early on, and had to see it all the way through.Our main character, Leigha, is the daughter of “Preacher” and yearns to be free from her father’s influence and that of the club. When a friend offers her the chance to visit her at a different club’s compound, she jumps at the opportunity. From there, she runs into Cyclops (a scarred former veteran who is now a Reckless Kings member), and her life changes forever.This is an age-gap romance (more than 10 years) and borders on insta-love, but I surprisingly didn’t have any issues with either aspect. I have always been in awe of the way that bikers love their “old ladies” in my favorite motorcycle club romance books, and this one is no exception. Cyclops and Leigha are a ship-worthy couple in every way possible. I was also quite impressed by how the bikers handled the bad guys and saved the children. Children are innocents who should never be used as pawns in the conflicts of adults, and the fact that the rough bikers took the time to treat the children with kindness and care was touching.As a note, this book is part of a series, but I didn’t have any issues understanding what was going on without having read any of the previous installments. I do, however, think that the best reading experience will be provided by reading the books in order. Take from that whatever direction you will.Overall, it was a very entertaining story and I look forward to checking out more books by Harley Wylde in the future. With regards to trigger warnings and content to be aware of, there are darker themes and references to minor abuse. There is also an attempted assault scene on a page (the hero swoops in to save the heroine just in time). It can get very sad at times, but don’t get too discouraged because the book ends in a happily ever after.originally posted at long and short reviews
Enjoyed reading this fast love story. Instant love and instant family. Good read and hot mc family! Loved the book
This is a second generation story although if you haven’t read her other stories that’s fine too. The great thing about her stories is that they are interwoven but also can be read as a stand-alone and someone who hasn’t read her books before won’t be lost. This is a sweet love story between a daughter who has been protected all her life maybe a little too much and a man a lot of people judge by his appearance and not must because he’s in a motorcycle club. I also like the small issue she addressed with a boy the main female character grew up with. It’s something I think a lot of guys don’t see as wrong and may not even be aware they’re doing something wrong like the boy in the book. Of course there was a bigger bad guy that they had to deal with. The love story is great and the sex scenes were steamy. Like all her stories this book is definitely for adults who are not easily offended by seed or harder issues that are being dealt with in our society she addresses in her books.
I loved Cyclops and Leigha’s story, but it was unfinished. Part of the story line was Leigha’s feeling of being out of place in the Reckless Kings club due to Lissa’s attitude. The story did not resolve that situation so it leaves one wondering whether the situation was resolved and how.
Another good addition to this series of books. Good characters and plot along with some good twists and turns plus action. Overall an enjoyable book. Looking forward to more books in this series.
Yes, I know its’s romantic insta love age gap fiction.Still she never had a date and first man she meets besides the attempted rapist is it for her.The trafficked kids go instantly to calling them mom & dad, come on.Disappointed in how Satyr was dealt with abs written out of the series too. Overall just a complete disappointment.
