Ride or Die by Cee Cee Riley

‘We would blow up this world and create something beautiful in its ruins’
Jesse & Laney 1985

We were each survivors of our upbringing: lost, unloved and afraid. But like moths to a flame, we couldn’t stay apart.
We loved.
We lost.
We fought.
We cried.
And then we shattered each other’s hearts.
Jesse was a hard man: a biker outlaw for the Devil’s Highwaymen MC. I was Laney: the daughter of a dead mother and a father that didn’t know or want me.
We were doomed right from the start.
But this was our romance.
And this was our disaster.
And hopefully, this would be our second chance.

Book One in the Ride or Die Devil's Highwaymen MC series

Goodreads


Romance is most definitely NOT my preferred genre. I prefer monsters and violence over love in my books. Sex scenes tend to lose my attention quickly. All that negativity being said, I am happy to be able to say I enjoyed Ride or Die.

 

Ride or Die was able to keep my attention, unlike most other romancey books have in the past. I’m not sure if it’s the characters, their story, or the way Riley tells the story, but whatever it was worked.

 

You can probably tell by the title and synopsis this is a motorcycle club romance book. If not, you’re welcome. I’m also not a fan of motorcycle books. They tend to hold no interest for me. You’re probably wondering why I even bothered reading it if I have no interest in the two main things in the book. Well, the answer to that is Riley’s Odium series. There is a crossing over of the two series and I wanted to know more about this side of the world.

 

Due to my inexperience in the Motorcycle Club Romance genre, I can only tell you about my own understandings of how things work within that world. Women aren’t always treated with respect. The men are hard and piggy. I liked how Ride or Die takes us on the journey from when Jesse was just a wee little thing to an adult. I felt like I knew him more as a person than just as a flat character. It helped me understand who he was.

 

As the story went on, I felt the family connection between these characters. Not family by blood but by choice. Which, growing up as a Marine Corps brat, I understand the feeling of having families of the heart instead of families of the blood.

 

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next in the series. I want to see what will happen in the world of The Devil’s Highwaymen. I’m glad I took a chance on Ride or Die.
