All Jade ever wants is an intelligent, well-mannered, and highly educated man like her daddy. One who has stellar career prospects as he climbs the corporate ladder to success. A good provider who will give her a stable life and a gorgeous house in the right neighborhood. A charmed life. Everything orderly and well balanced. Her perfect match. Isn't that what every woman wants? What she doesn’t want is a smartass, cocky, rough-around-the-edges biker. One who has tattoos and piercings, and looks like a sex god. One who is demanding and controlling. The ultimate alpha male who storms into her life and shakes her to the core. Jade never saw it coming. Ryder is the one man she can’t resist. He shows her what she really needs. Him.
All Ryder wants is inner peace. Freedom from the hatred churning in his gut. Since his mother deserted him, his life has turned to sh*t. He’s killed a man, lost his brother and fought for his survival. All before turning twelve. Saved by Razor and Cobra, sons of the Scorpions, he owes his life and allegiance to them. The Scorpion MC is his only family. One he will serve and protect till his dying breath. What he doesn’t need in his life is a smart mouthed woman who thinks she’s better than him. One who pushes every one of his buttons. One who challenges him to want to be more than a drifter. One who makes him question everything he’s ever known. Ryder never saw it coming. He can’t get Jade out of his head. She shows him what he really wants. Her.

This book was a fab, fast paced prequel to the main event "Scorpions MC: Two Worlds colliding" which is out in March 2014.  The story  provided me with enough background information to peak my interest and I have to say, March cannot come soon enough. I really want to see where this one goes and I have a feeling it's not going to be plain sailing!!! Then again when is it ever when there are bikers involved? 

In terms of the leading characters, what do you get when you throw a rich bitch with attitude and a sexy as sin, bad ass biker together? Trouble with a capital T that's what. Right from the off, Jade rubbed me up the wrong way. She was a spoilt brat who was so uptight, opinionated and judgmental, she infuriated me. The minute she clapped eyes on Ryder she'd already made up her mind about him and her comments were so derogatory, she made my blood boil. Thank god Ryder was a "no bullshit" alpha male kinda guy who didn't take crap from anyone. He gave as good as he got and praise be because he definitely put her in her place a few times (trust me, she needed it). 

"What do you know about real life? Real life ain't no fucking picnic, Princess. 
Not everyone lives a goddamn fairytale. It's time you fucking grew up."
As much as I saw the typical MC 'tough as old boots' side to him, within the confines of his home, I saw another side that I wasn't expecting. It surprised me but I liked it and I knew that me and Ryder were going to get along just fine (even though he had a habit of calling women 'bitches'!!! lol).

Jade and Ryder couldn't have come from more opposite ends of the spectrum. Her life had been a privileged one. She was daddy's little princess and Ryder... well he was from the wrong side of the tracks and he was the VP of an MC.  To be honest, despite the physical pull, I wondered what these two could possibly have in common but you know what they say... opposites attract and all that. When Jade and Ryder finally got it on (on the back of his bike ... uh huh!!! ) it was explosive. No kidding, Jani knows how to get you all hot and flustered and that sex scene ... jeesh I'm glad I was alone when I read it... all bug eyed with my toes curling at the very thought!!!! 

I can't wait to see what the future holds for these two. What I do know is, it's not going to be easy. They have so much going against them already, could it ever work??? 

She looked so innocent, her hair spread out like a halo around her face. I wanted to kiss her 
and then spank her and then fuck her and then kiss her again. Yeah. I was fucked. Fuck. 
The ground work has definitely been laid for what lies ahead and I cannot wait to see how everything pans out with the club, Mia, Jade's brother, Cobra, the police ... and the list goes on. Plus I have a hundred and one questions I still need answering. I honestly think we've only touched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this story and I envisage the second book being action packed, full of drama with a whole load of alpha male romance thrown in for good measure. 
I rated "Scorpions MC: Prequel" 3.5 -4 hearts (some of the timings of events kinda threw me a little and there were a couple of moments I found myself a little lost trying to back track to see if I'd missed something... maybe things will become clearer in book # 2.)
Author Bio:
Jani has been married for a long time to a special man, and her two children and their partners are the sunshine in her life. She is a voracious reader and would spend her last dollar on a book - always fascinated that for the mere price of a book, she can escape her world for a while and see through someone else's eyes.
Besides reading, her favorite 'thing' is traveling - she has traveled the world, learning about the ways people live and has come to the realization that no matter where we live, we all ultimately want the same things. Her hobby - Scrapbooking - keeps her up till way after midnight and her usual subjects are her family and her travels.
Ever since she can remember, Jani wanted to write stories about people, about their lives and loves. Relationships and Happiness - arguably the most difficult things to master in life and yet exactly what everyone ultimately desires (in her humble opinion).
