Review: Make It Hurt (Texas Bounty #2) by Jackie Ashenden


The Texas Bounty series heats up as a female bounty hunter goes toe-to-toe with the tantalizing biker who never stopped loving her.

Nora Sutcliffe enjoys having tough guys at her mercy—preferably in handcuffs. The best fugitive recovery agent in the business, Nora always gets her man. But when her latest pursuit leads her to a notorious biker hangout, she’s reunited with “Smith”: the one man who was too hot for Nora to handle. Once upon a time, she was a rich girl and he was a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Now she needs his help, and she’ll do whatever it takes to get it.

Eight years ago, Smith let a pretty little Texas debutante break his heart. He picked up the pieces, went to hell and back with the army, then rode out of the darkness with a gang of outlaws at his back. The last thing he needs is a blast from the past like Nora, who has reinvented herself as a gun-toting badass with the stones to challenge him in front of the whole club. But if she thinks Smith will give up one of his brothers for a single night of pleasure, she’s in for a rude awakening.

My Review

Overall, I found this book to be quite enjoyable. This is my first read by this author and I have to say,  Make It Hurt was a quick and easy read for me. I loved the concept and story-line. I found Nora and Smith to a very interesting couple and was excited to see how things would play out with them. You see, Nora is a bounty hunter and Smith is a biker. The two of them couldn’t be more opposites, but share a complicated history. I thought that Smith and Nora had some really good chemistry and they definitely shared some scorching times together.

Make It Hurt isn’t 100% perfect and does have some areas which could have been improved upon such as overall character development. That being said, I did find the book entertaining and was able to finish it one sitting. I think this series has a lot of good potential and I look forward to seeing where the author will take it next.
