Mettle by JC Valentine • FMR REVIEW


Talia McKinnon said goodbye to love the day she signed the divorce papers and moved across the country looking for a fresh start. With work occupying her days and nights, a relationship is the last thing on her mind, until a run-in with a hot-as-Hades, leather clad biker changes her mind. He’s everything she shouldn’t want but has to have. The problem is, he’s not that easy to catch.

Tucker “Country” Abrams believes in two things: brotherhood and women. He takes his job seriously and his women hard, but at the end of the day, the only loyalty he has is to his club. So when a night with a beautiful stranger threatens to change everything, he’s quick to apply the brakes. But when a little detective work reveals that Talia may be much more than a one-night stand, Tucker is tasked with an impossible decision. Will he push her away, or go against every instinct he has and pull her closer?


Review by: Erin 

Holy Hotness Batman! This book should be rated X for the super HOT scenes between Talia and Country. Warning: you will need clean undies! This storyline flowed right along from Grit (Book 1). Talia is a woman torn between duty and what she longs for. She is a strong woman who doesn’t back down from anything. She stands up for herself and what she believes in. Country is a great character. He is very sure in himself. He knows who he is, and what he can bring to the table. What he doesn’t want is to ever settle down, but Talia is going to show him the errors in his thinking. These two together provide some explosive scenes that will make your toes curl. The drama and plot twists provide the other two ingredients to keep your nose firmly planted in this book. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

4.5 Stars 

Review by: Kim 

I am a huge fan of this author. From the moment you open one of her books, J.C Valentine has the talent to transport you into the world that she has created. I never fail to get lost inside the pages of her books.
Mettle is not one of your typical MC books. It's raw and gritty, but not from the insight of MC life, but from the feels given as the players work toward figuring out what it is exactly that they want from life.
Tucker 'Country' Abrams; now if there is a more relationship-aphobe out there, I wouldn't know where. Good grief this guy. Sometimes I wanted to hug him, other times I could have punched him in the throat just for being a guy.
Although Tuck does have the Alpha thing down in spades. He is yummy Ladies, so read this book at your own risk. You might just discover a new BBF.
Talia is kick a$$. She's tough and strong and she doesn't let a sexy, southern drawl get to her, (even though the drawl made her heart beat a little faster). 
I loved the way this woman stood her ground and never took any crap off of anyone. Even the biggest scariest biker.
Although Talia has secrets...Big Secrets.
As Tuck and Talia not only navigate a budding relationship that neither is sure they want, and the bad guys get closer, will Talia's secrets make Tuck decide that he's right about all relationships, or will his heart convince him otherwise?
Mettle is a fast paced fun ride that will keep you spellbound until the end.
