Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000031_00006]  

Fast. That’s how I like life, especially my two great joys: bikes and women. I’m committed to exclusively riding one, but not the other. Until April. A sexy-arse freelance photographer who’s travelled the world, and doesn’t do long walks on the beach or romantic candlelit dinners. She enjoys running with the bulls and food spicy enough to make your hair fall out. If that weren’t enough to get me hard, she rides a mean mother of a motorcycle. I’ve gotta have a taste of this wildcat.
~Spencer (Jones)

I don’t do fast. Not anymore. I’ve got my career, my independence, and since I fled Spain to come back home I promised myself that I wouldn’t be put second—or third, for that matter—again. Then I meet pretty boy Spencer. He’s smooth, oozing the most potent pheromones probably known to modern science, and he’s making a move on me. One kiss was almost enough for my promise to dissolve. My head says no—my treacherous body screams yes. I’m gonna make Spencer work for it. Make him fight for the chance to have me, because I know that deep down I’m worth it.

My Review:

Strike (Spark, #3)Strike by Jennifer Ryder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Spencer Jones is known as a great motocross rider, and a manwhore. He is up front with everyone about who he is, and the women in his life know what to expect from him and have no problem lining up for a turn. April MacIntyre is not interested in meaningless sex at this point in her life, and she is never again going to settle for a relationship where she isn't truly loved and respected. April and Spencer meet at a diner one evening without knowing who the other is or how their worlds intersect. While their physical attraction is strong, it appears they have other points of connection as well. April isn't about to jump into any situation, and Spencer realizes that for the first time he wants more of a relationship and is willing to take things slow.

The physical chemistry between Spencer and April is pretty intense. It was great watching Spencer take things at a pace that was much slower than he had ever considered in the past. There were times when I couldn't believe the sexual tension he was operating under while April made sure he was someone she could trust. April is an easy character to relate to and cheer for. She is someone who has found her way to who she is and what she wants the hard way. At this point in her life she understands what she wants and what she is worth and she isn't going to compromise any more. Watching Spencer evolve into someone who wants to be more for himself and someone else was very enjoyable. Obviously there are some challenges as these two make a go of a relationship. Through it all, I was really hoping that they would be able to get things figured out since it was obvious what a great match they could be. I also suspect I would really enjoy one of Spencer's good night kisses. I wouldn't hesitate to read more by this author in the future.
