Day 7: Poet By Juli Valenti

Poet Butler, the first female President of the outlaw motorcycle club, Hells Redemption, has one basic rule in life: Don’t date bikers, ever.

After she’s randomly jumped during a clubhouse party, she takes off to her house in the hills to avoid her men seeing the bruises she’s sporting. The one flaw in her plan is the man who found her and demands to come with her.

Titan Warren, the President of Bishops Reign, is an arrogant prick Poet can’t stand. He’s entitled, pushy, and attractive as hell, which only pushes her to dislike him more.

Can Poet’s strength withstand bloodshed and conspiracy as the world she once knew falls apart? Or will she crumble under the pressure, and lose everything she’s ever known?

This book is so far out of my normal realm of interest that if I hadn’t heard so many good things about it, Poet would never have even been on my radar. I’m not generally interested in most romance, nor am I particularly interested in any sort of motorcycles. Motorcycle club romances are quite popular right now thanks to shows like Sons of Anarchy (which I have NOT seen and highly doubt I will, due to a complete and utter lack of interest).


To say Poet pleasantly surprised me would be a giant understatement.


Poet is a tough as nails chick making her mark as the first female President in the male dominated world of motorcycle clubs. She grew up in the life so it wasn’t something she decided to do on a whim. She had to prove herself probably more than any man would have had to do to gain the same position of power within the club.


Despite her hard exterior, Poet has a soft spot inside that she keeps well hidden from anyone who can potentially use it against her, which is almost everyone with whom she is in contact. She is a very likeable character and her personality is easy to relate to. Poet is the type of character that makes me want things to work out for her. I actually felt something for her. I felt protective over her in a way I generally don’t feel on the rare occasion that I read something this romantically inclined.  Women tend to have to put on a strong front for many men to take us seriously, especially in positions of power. I feel bad for Poet in the sense that she has to keep her true self hidden or risk losing her club to someone who can potentially destroy all that she and her father (the previous President) worked so hard to build.


I loved the dynamic between Poet and her club members. They truly seem like a family. Some of how they are with each other reminded me a lot of my Dad and his friends that were in the Marine Corps with him. They could give each other the hardest time, but it was usually meant in good fun. Don’t you dare try to cross one without crossing all of them!


Titan’s character was difficult for me. As much as I didn’t trust Titan, I wanted him to be a good guy. I wanted him to be the man for Poet.  The tension between him and Poet is sizzling hot though. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen or not happen between them!


To be honest, I didn’t love the ending. I thought the explanation from the villain wasn’t sufficient. There were some twists and turns that I didn’t see coming, which was nice. The story is fast paced, funny at times, and full of action. I didn’t feel like I was ready to stop reading when I ran out of pages. Though my interest in motorcycles and  motorcycle clubs is limited to almost non-existent, I really would  like to read more about some of the other characters in this book. I also  must admit that I plan to read the other books in the series when they are released.


I recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast paced, sometimes funny, very sexy story that occurs in the dangerous and mysterious world of a motorcycle club.
