What’s harder than resisting one Dane man? Resisting two.
I don’t date bikers. It’s my one cardinal rule. No rough, rugged, tattooed egotistical maniacs on two wheels. Even if they are gorgeous, brilliant, and sport the prefix Doctor. Bottom line, bikers are nothing but trouble.
Dr. Devlin Dane has had his sights set on my panties for months. But I’ve done a stellar job of fending him off. As Mercy Medical’s most eligible bachelor, he has no problem in the panty dropping department. He’s tall, dark, and inked all over. I get the appeal, I’m not dead. I’m not stupid either. He’s a walking heartbreak waiting to happen.
But when Reese Dane comes crashing into my life – literally- the game suddenly changes.
Reese, the dark, brooding, motorcycle racing champion, knows exactly how to apply the right pressure on and off the track.
The two have an unstoppable pull like centrifugal force, and both bad boy bikers are determined to take me on a high-powered ride I’ll never forget…

Rating: 4.5 ♥‘s
First off – there is no cover in the world HOTTER than Moto‘s. Of course, that’s not what makes it a good book, but it sure doesn’t hurt it, either!
It took me awhile to finish Moto and not because it wasn’t good, but unfortunately a lot of overzealous fans kind of spoiled it for me before I got the chance to read beyond the first few chapters, so I was very reluctant to go any further. I spent the whole time turning every new page on bated breath, waiting for the spoiler section to happen and that doesn’t make for the greatest reading experience.
However, I will attempt not to post any spoilers here, because I definitely recommend reading it! I’m already a fan of M. Never, so I might be a little biased, but Moto is a seriously super-sexy, sensual and emotional journey that spanned a lot further than I expected.
Kayla Kincade is a nurse at the local hospital in her small hometown who spends most of her shifts brushing off Dr. Devlin Dane’s advances. Raised by her aunt Sam, a local cop, Kayla is far from being one of Dev’s easy scores, despite her undeniable attraction to him – it’s his motorcycle that stops her. She’d sworn of bikers a long time ago, when an irrevocable choice ended in tragedy and had her fleeing from that wild world for good. Unfortunately, there’s two of him! And when Dev’s identical twin brother literally crashes into her life, Kayla’s resistance discovers that there is nothing more powerful than a double dose of Dane determination.
Dr. Devlin Dane has never met a woman, especially a nurse, that he could not conquer until Kayla. Not only is he young, attractive and a successful cardiologist – he’s an inked Moto with a penchant for kink – so, he’s got all of the boxes checked as far as female desire goes. Yet for the past year, he’s gotten nowhere with the only woman he really wants. And just when he finally breaks down her defenses and secures his first chance – his twin brother shows up to turn everything upside down.
Reese Dane lives his life on the edge, and why shouldn’t he? He’s at the top of his game, getting ready to defend his Moto Grand Prix Championship Title for another consecutive season. On the track, he’s known as the Phantom, because by the time his competition even sees him coming, he’s already leaving them in the dust. A nomad by nature, he wants to be anywhere but stuck in his nowhere, USA hometown – luckily, he’s got a spunky, hot ass nurse to keep him from going completely insane. And when he convinces Kayla and his brother to hire her as his at home nurse, the real fun truly begins.
I can’t get into the story details too much more without spoilers. I would love to give this book 5 ♥‘s, but there were a couple of key points that kept me from doing so. One was that for most of the beginning of the book there is a continuous, in-depth criminal story line that made me feel it was going to play a huge part in the book, but never did. In fact it could be taken out of the book altogether without ruining it, because it ended up having absolutely nothing to do with the main characters or how their stories turned out at all.
The second key point was the lack of emotional bond/tension/connection between the twins. As all sibling have issues, Dev and Reese are no exception, and that part is thoroughly fleshed out, however – their issues are never resolved. I felt disappointed that they never really addressed their problems, came to blows, something! As intense as both of their personalities are and given Reese’s circumstances, it just didn’t seem realistic to me that there was never a breaking point for them that they could move forward from. It was also very disappointing that Dev didn’t man up and address his issue with both Reese and Kayla after a particular incident, rather than just standing by his reaction without any attempt to work it out or at least discuss it (Ugh, trying not to spoil anything here, but it’s hard!). When you read it – and I still suggest you do – you will understand what I’m referring to. In my opinion, his reaction and then lack of backpedaling and trying to fix it as a mature, consenting adult, didn’t put him in a favorable light at all and there was really no fleshed out redeeming of himself done, either. It kind of felt like Dev was abruptly abandoned as a full character, which sucked because I was already emotionally invested in him just as much as Reese and Kayla.
Despite those two things, the story as a whole has good balance between humor, extremely hot sex scenes, emotional angst, heart-melting sweetness and unexpected twists and turns to keep you wondering and reading. Outside of the story, itself, I would also recommend reading M. Never’s Acknowledgments in the back where she goes into more detail about the idea and creation of the story, adding more depth and perception to the overall reading experience.
