I couldn’t walk away.
It’s not who I am.
The moment I saw Rayne broken and bloodied, I knew I wasn’t leaving without her.

As the president of the Houston Defiance MC, my job is to protect. And there’s no taming the rage building inside my body, screaming at me to shield her from the husband who’s beating her day in and day out.

Taking her was never in my plans, but plans change.
I don’t care if she’s married.
Or that her husband’s a cop.

Our connection is explosive, it’s dangerous, it’s intoxicating.
And I’m fast being swept up in her storm.
It’s something I can’t ignore.

I thought the enemy was clear, and I was ready to fight.
But maybe there’s a threat we didn’t see coming?
Maybe there’s someone closer to us than we ever could have imagined.
Someone who could be the destruction of us both.

Explosive by K.E. Osborn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Explosive is loaded with action, suspense, heart ache, love, and a dash of humor. The story line is original and I find that the Defiance MC is unique compared to other MC books I’ve read. Their club treats everyone in their fold as actual members even if they’re not, and it wasn’t always “club business” when it came to the women being in the know. It was refreshing to see an author step away from the norm.

Zero is hot, there’s no doubt about it. As the title indicates, Rayne and Zero are explosive when it comes to their chemistry. But so is all the drama that surrounds them. Zero can be a Moody d!ck, but that’s a typical man. Lol. Rayne and Zero are both dealing with heavy personal issues and I think that’s part of what draws their damaged souls towards each other.

This book reminded me of an over the top action film, so if you love action movies you will love this book! There was a lot going on. Honestly, sometimes I felt overwhelmed making it hard to concentrate, it was making my head spin. Every time I was getting drawn into the story it would pull into a different direction of drama. But I think this was the authors way of showing how much pressure was on Zero and also the other members.

Overall I liked the book and most of the characters have me intrigued. I am interested in knowing what was going on with Wraith and Princess, so I’m dying for the next book to find out what went down and what’s to come!!!

I’m in love with the cover of this book and the title. The cover because … do I even have to explain why? Lol The title because it makes me super happy when the title of a book describes a book impeccably. Everything about this story was explosive and I loved every minute of reading it! I’ve only read one other book by this author in the past, but she’s been on my radar since I discovered another author she has co-written some books with that are on my TBR. And now I have the entire Chicago Defiance MC series downloaded and ready for me! 🙂

Alright, back to the actual book! I’ll start by saying that there’s quite a bit of real life circumstances happening in this book and almost all of them have zero rainbows. Do with that what you will … I will also say that I give the author mad props for respectfully representing said life circumstances and making sure they were written accurately. Again, not a lot of rainbows and gumdrops. You’ve been warned!

As every first book in any MC series does, Explosive will introduce you to a wide range of secondary characters along with MC itself while building the relationship of the leads. The author did an exceptional job of incorporating all of these elements and not making the story tedious. As I mentioned earlier, it was quite the opposite! I’m really proud of how this story of family and friendship, brotherhood and sisterhood, trust, power, control, betrayal, deceit and finally vengeance unfolded. There’s no shortage of action and drama in these pages so pay attention because a lot will be thrown at you, but it will all be worth it! I cannot wait for Addictive!!

I start moving toward the exit. My chest heats so fucking much it’s like I’m on fire. I don’t know what the hell’s happening right now, but having Rayne in my arms, knowing while I’m holding her, and no fucking person in the world can touch her, it has my body flaming in adrenaline.

This woman is bad news.

Real bad fucking news.

Her eyes linger on me as I walk with her from the bedroom, down the hall, and outside to the waiting van. Having her right up against me like this is not doing my cock any favors. She smells like peaches and fucking sunsets.

How the fuck can someone smell like a sunset? It’s like I’m going out of my damn mind right now.

She’s invading my senses as I help her inside the van, placing her in the rear seat.

“I don’t understand why you’re helping me?” Her eyes lock onto mine.

My protector mode rears its head yet again as I lean over her grabbing at the seat belt to pull over her. Our faces come in line with each other.

Rayne scrunches up her face, reaching for the seat belt. “I can put on my own seat belt.”

I jerk my head back as she removes it from my grip while trying to gain control of the situation. I pull it back from her and click it into position. “I’m sure you can, but I need to ensure you’re taken care of. Can’t get you out of this situation and have you injured on the way into the club because you’re not buckled in properly.”

Her eyes widen. “There are so many things wrong with what you just said. One, you think I’m incapable of something as simple as doing up a seat belt. And two, you believe your driving is so bad I’m going to be injured on the way to wherever it is you’re taking me?”

“That’s not what I meant—”

“Then you need to think about how you word shit, ‘cause you’re coming across as an arrogant ass.”

I glare at her smug, insolent, beautiful face. “You have an attitude problem, cherry bomb.”

She snorts. “And you think you can control me because I get beaten up by my husband? He might walk all over me, but you…” she tilts her head smugly, “… not so much.”

Hmm. She has a feisty side.

I lean in closer. Her eyes widen, and her breathing hitches. She’s affected. “I like your fighting spirit, Rayne. You are a wild one.”

She leans in closer, we’re only an inch apart, the smell of peach surrounds me. It takes every ounce of strength I have not to rush forward pressing my lips to hers. My eyes stare into her incandescent emerald green eyes, they’re so alive, so alight with fire. She has so much fight in her. As she licks her bottom lip, my cock twitches when she whispers, “You ain’t seen nothing yet.”

A low hum vibrates from my chest as I exhale, backing away from Rayne slowly.

She’s trouble with a capital ‘I’m screwed.’
