3.5 stars-- Tracker's End (Wind Dragons MC #3) by Chantal Fernando

Tracker's End helluva lot of fun and pulled me in completely with it's fan yourself sexy, laugh out loud humor and a fabulous crew of characters. I had a great time as Tracker and Lana finally did something about their year long attraction and the 'good girl' finally snagged herself a bad boy biker. Add in a pierced cock and some Ed Sheeran fandom and, hell yeah, I had a good time and maybe just a couple squees along the way too.
Alright. The quick of it is that Tracker is a biker in an MC. And Lana's best friend is with one of the guys from his club so she's around and about and man that sexy biker with the long blond hair is giving her some real dirty thoughts. Turns out her shy quiet ways have totally snagged his attention too and after a year of's on. Woohoo!

Lana was just a fantastic heroine. A spot geeky, a bit inexperienced but not naive, a romance writer and just a likable woman with a good heart that would be easy to be around. She struggled now and again with trust issues but was solid and fun.

Tracker was pretty damn hot too. Sexy and cocky and rocking some hardware on his manly bits. I freaking LOVE pierced cocks so was all woohoo! over that. He could be an ass, could be incredibly sweet and could really fuck things up too. Basically. He was a male. lol
"That's quite the weapon you're packing," I exclaim, cringing as soon as the words leave my mouth.

Yes, I just said that.
Heat-wise. These two pretty damn hot. Lots of passion and tension and a heroine that made him wait until they'd gotten to know each other a bit before having sex--yes for an awesome heroine once again! I do wish more had been done with the pierced cock which other than mentions at the start was mostly ignored. But that's okay, I knew it was there. I liked these two together in and out of bed. They had very different personalities but they meshed well and brought out new and fun sides to each other. She got a little bold and sassy and adventurous--living life instead of just writing about it. And she softened his hard edges. Calmed and centered him.
"You know," he says, dipping his fry in ketchup. "One day you're going to trust me enough to share every one of those little thoughts and jokes of yours. One day, you're going to get out of your head, and you're going to let me in."

"Is that so?"

He nods, chewing thoughtfully. "Yep."

"And one day, Tracker," I tell him. "I'm going to ruin you for all other women."

My comment was meant to get a reaction out of him, to scare him.

But all he says is, "I believe that too."

I did have one fairly big issue and that was the hero's screw up. He pulled a Ross Geller and a 'we were on a break' bit and even though I enjoyed the book, the romance and how things ended I was pretty damn disappointed in him and it did take the rating down a half a point.

So a technicality and maybe he should get a semi-pass with it since they'd had a falling out but for me as a reader I wasn't okay with that bit.
"Lana, are you going somewhere with this?" he asks, then takes another sip.

I growl in frustration. "Did you or did you not beat the shit out of him?"

"I can honestly say that I didn't. Babe, I told you I wouldn't."

My eyes narrow. "Did you get someone else to?"

"I can't talk about club business," he says with a serious expression on his face.

I throw my hands up in the air. "You're unbelievable, Tracker."

He slides his mug away and pulls me down to sit on his lap. "And you're unbelievably beautiful."

He kisses my neck.

I pinch his biceps.
Now. On the MC front. On a scale of 1 to Madeline Sheehan...Tracker's End is a 1 when it comes to being an MC romance. I'd say this is a book for those that want to read an MC but don't really want an MC read. It's a contemporary romance. One that's ever so very very slightly dipped into the MC world. It's set in an MC but there is absolutely no grit to this book. Pretty much everything MC is off pages. They talk about badass things they've done, dangerous moments, etc but other than the heroine getting beat up by the hero's ex there's not all that much happening here. I'm not saying that's a bad thing at all though--because I did have a good time with it--but don't go in expecting a lot of grit with this one. There's a very contemporary romance feel to it instead.

All in all, despite an issue with the hero there towards the end and it being fairly tame MC-wise I had a fantastic time with these two. Fernando pulled me in completely. Tracker's End was one hot and sexy ride I just couldn't put down. I read it pretty much in one sitting and stayed up way past my bedtime so I could devour every last page. I'll definitely be back for more.

Do you have a favorite from Fernando?
Do you have any MC series you just love?
Do you like gritty MC reads or light ones?

Tracker is everything I’ve ever wanted.

I see him. I’ve watched time change him.

I’ve been patient, but he still hasn’t noticed me. Not the way I want him to. The more time I spend with the MC, the more I understand.

When you want something, you have to take it. You have to fight for it.

And Tracker is more than worth fighting for…
