Series: Demon Horde MC #3
Genres: Contemporary Romance
A recovering gambler
Hard-living biker Clint Remmick is fiercely loyal to the boys of the Demon Horde motorcycle club. He’s worked hard to redeem himself, and there’s no risk he won’t take to help his brothers, even when rivals threaten their safety. When his grandmother’s health takes a turn for the worse, though, he moves out of the clubhouse to take care of her. With his duties for the MC, he knows he can’t do it alone, so he hires Jo, a live-in nurse.
He didn’t expect her to heal him, as well.
A dedicated nurse
Jo Smith enjoys working for sweet old Anne Remmick, and she’s especially intrigued by her tattooed bad-boy grandson. Clint’s tough exterior scares her a little, but she feels a pull toward the sexy biker. Soon she’s dying to close the distance between them.
A losing bet
When Clint and his brothers have to pull a dangerous job in Reno, Jo is the perfect cover. With enemies around every corner, Clint needs to focus on keeping her safe—not the lust simmering between them. But when Clint is trapped by a rival club, Jo will have to save him…and their relationship.

Outlaw Ride is book 3 in the Demon Horde MC series, but you can (as I did) read it out of order. The hero, Clint, is a recovering gambler. He has worked hard at turning his life around and gaining back the trust of his MCs president. Now, he is taking on a new business venture that could be very lucrative to the MC! And on top of that, his grandma, Nana, is going to live with him so she is close to her dialysis treatment. That means Clint needs to hire a live in caregiver. Jo, the heroine, takes the job as live in caregiver while she finishes her nursing degree.
There is attraction between Clint and Jo right away. However, Clint is her boss and she lives in there house. If things went south after a breakup, it would cost her everything. So, I totally understood her reticence. Jo was a determined, goal driven, street smart girl. She grew up in a tough environment and has dealt with racism her entire life due to her mixed race heritage. Clint’s family is more stable and close, but he is still dealing with his own demons.
I’m not entirely sure I buy the chemistry between these two. I could believe in a lot of lust, but that was about it. They go back and forth in the will they won’t they dance, then they do, then he freaks, then she is confused, then action happens and BAM they are back together. I’m just not sure I buy them long term, you know. I didn’t dislike Clint or Jo. I didn’t dislike the story. I didn’t LOVE it. It was good, but perhaps one I won’t remember long term.
Outlaw ride is a good weekend binge read if you enjoy MC books, imperfect characters, real life struggles, and steamy sex!
