Release Blitz! Rough & Rowdy By Hayley Faiman

Kentlee Johnson has always been a sweet girl with good intentions and simple dreams. 
Pierce "Fury" Duhart is an outlaw by nature, born and bred to ride with the Notorious Devils. 
When a chance encounter brings them face to face, Kentlee knows that getting involved with the president of the town's notorious MC is not a wise choice. 
But Fury knows what he wants, and Kentlee is the little bit of sugar he craves on the side. 
Daring to be bold for just one night, Kentlee surrenders to Fury's advances—but one taste of the rough and rowdy man is all it takes to turn her world upside down. 
*** Recommended for 18+ due to Sexual Content, Adult Language, and Violence
I am always looking for the next series that will have me hooked and needing more.  Obviously, I love a ton of different tropes; billionaires, bikers, stepbrother, badboy, m/m, sports, well you get the idea so I also know that a lot of storylines will be changed up, but there really won’t be anything truly new that some of these books will add to the overall genre.  Sadly Rough & Rowdy may not have added anything new to the biker book love that I have, but I can say that it was filled with some action, wanting to slap some sense into a stubborn alpha male biker, shake a naïve female and tell her to stand up for herself instead of being a damn doormat, angst, some erotic sex and all in all a good book to start a series.  Yes I just said that Rough & Rowdy is a good book, and I realize that I may seem a little harsh in the beginning and throughout the rest of this review but I promise I did enjoy it.

There is a lot going on in this book.  MC President who doesn’t want an Old Lady but finds a woman who he can’t help but wanting even if it means keeping her unclaimed to protect her from the dangers of the club.  Fury, let me just mention that fury is just one emotion that I felt for this man, along with love, anger, and violence; he thought he was doing the right thing but in the end it was the furthest thing from that.  Kentlee is sweet, Fury doesn’t believe that Kentlee is strong enough to be an Old Lady, even if he doesn’t want one.  Too bad, him not claiming her as just that makes her unable to have club support or protection.  Stupid, stupid man.

Kentlee.  I am on the fence about Kentlee and here is why.  I think when what happens, happens, she was too easily forgiving but I think that’s just who she is.  She in a sense is beaten down by her family, her sister’s friends, and everyone else who takes advantage of her in her life.  Does Fury take advantage?  In my opinion no he does, he loves her, he wants her, he screws up yes, but I think for me to fully believe she can be an Old Lady and have that strength she needed to be stronger, not physically but mentally and more assertive in her feelings.  Is she a doormat?  Honestly no, because you do see glimpses of that strength but I wish she would have shown more.  I sure as hell wanted to see her make Fury work for her.

Now with all that being said, I think the next book is going to be extremely difficult to read about.  From the preview we get you know what is going on.  I think it will be a book that can make or break this series if not done right, but I have faith in this author that she will be able to hook this book whore into this series because I am already intrigued and looking forward to more.
