Review: Silver Bastard ( Silver Valley #1 ) by Joanna Wylde

Silver Bastard by Joanna Wylde

Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward—full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That’s when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her—the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.

Puck will help her again, but this time it’ll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...




I've religiously followed Joanna Wylde's MC series and although this is a spin off centered at Silver Valley, is still very much a MC book. As usual, we have a solid writing, love the drama with the club and everything, but the romance department left a lot to be desire.

I love the background and history that Puck and Becca had 5 years prior. It serve as a very nice conflict and I understand why they tried to avoid each other for years. But moving on from there, I don't see much chemistry and love.

1st half of the book,
: I want her. But I hurt her before, so I better resolved to being a creeper and watching out for her.
Becca: He scared me, but I feel safe when he is around. How fucked up is that?

2nd half of the book,
: I'm done waiting, you are mine now. Deal with it.
Becca: I'm a free woman. I belong to myself. I don't want to end up like my mum.

Becca simply frustrate me too much with all her self righteous and dignity. She is so adamant not to let history repeat itself that she keep throwing everything Puck said back to his face. I used to be able to look over this kind of attitude previously, but now my tolerance level had change. I don't need this kind of bullshit.

Overall, I still enjoyed everything that is going within Puck and the club. I'm interested to read all about what's up with Painter and Mel next.

Rating 3/5
