(Predators MC #1)
By: Jamie Begley
Genre: MC Romance
Publisher: Young Ink Press, LLC
Publication Date: October 21st, 2014
My Rating: ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮
As president of the Predators’ MC, my men and I are used to preying on the weak and those stupid enough to cross our paths. So why does a straitlaced teacher make me sit up and take notice when I see her for the first time?
The brothers all think she makes me weak, and believe me, weak in their eyes isn’t where I want to be. She wants me to prove she means more to me than the club, and when I fail, she thinks she can just walk away. She’s wrong. I’m a Predator, and nothing escapes me.
As a teacher, I’m supposed to want to educate those who want to learn, right? That’s what I believed until I was told I’d have to teach a class at the prison. I didn’t move to a town labeled as one of the safest places in America only to be faced with a bunch of Predators.
He expects me to trust him despite being the reason I’m trapped in the middle of a prison riot. His club means more to him than I ever will, and if I give him a chance, he will break the fragile peace I have managed to find. It’s not the first time I’ve had to escape a predator.

“It’s never going to be a choice of you or them. It’s always going to be you.”
Riot is the first book in the Predators MC series and the eleventh novel in Jamie Begley’s reading order. I have actually been anticipating this novel since my first glimpse of Ice. This man is the president of the Predators MC and from previous moments, this man and his club are fierce and vicious. So I went into this novel expecting some adrenaline pumping action moments and some heartbreak, because lets face it when you match up an alpha male and a teacher, there are going to be crossed wires somewhere in the storyline.
What I didn’t expect was for Ice to be so fucking sweet! Ah, I honestly couldn’t get enough of his sweet moments that he tried to hide behind an alpha persona to save face. Those unexpected moments made me love Ice even more.
Grace was a great match for Ice. I loved the boundaries that Ice set and her ability to constantly test them. I loved how she didn’t let him off easy after the inevitable heartbreaking moment. I loved how she actually had a backbone and he was the one that eventually came crawling back. I saw Grace in a whole new light and really appreciated her character afterwards.
I was expecting to end this novel liking it, but what I wasn’t expecting was the fact that I actually stayed up the whole damn night reading this one. I couldn’t put this novel down, I needed all the words and It never failed, every time I thought I hit the perfect moment to stop reading, something would freaking happen and I would have to continue on.
Just one more chapter
Like that promise is ever kept!
Usually with MC Romances, I like them to be raw and gritty with a hint of darkness. Riot still has a few dark and raw moments but overall this one is a bit on the lighter/sweeter side of the spectrum. There are a few romance cliché moments but above everything else, it’s a definite page turner and one that sucked me in from the beginning.
so the question is, do I recommend this novel?
I fell like if you’re looking for a fun read to pass the time, Hell yeah I recommend this one. But if you’re really critical on the MC romances and need to have them a particular way in order for you to actually like them, then probably not. I will definitely be re reading this one in the years to come. I don’t know, I guess I’m a sucker for sweet moments between badasses and their angels.
