Bikers and Pearls By Vicki Wilkerson ~ A Summerbrook Novel ~ Review ~
First of all I just have to say WOW! This book is a wonderful sweet romance with a lot of emotion. I'm so pleased I was given an opportunity to read Bikers and Pearls in order to share my thoughts with you.
April Church is a young woman who has been through some VERY traumatic events that have shaped her life. She has tried to make her life as safe as she possibly can. She's also holds some giant fears about Bikers and their Bikes. When she meets Bull (a proud Biker) she thinks there is no way she can handle working with him and his friends to help Ben. However she has vowed to do whatever it takes to help her little friend Ben get better. The more she gets to know Bull the more she does want to work with him. There is a strong connection between these two that they fight hard.
Bullworth Clayton lost a brother to cancer in childhood and has had to fight his own demons from the past. When he meets April he thinks she is nothing but an uptight snot. The more he gets to know her the more discovers he was wrong and wants to get to know her better.
This truly is a story of how if love is strong enough it can truly overcome any obstacle or fear placed in it's path. Nothing can come between two people who love and need each other so much. I loved how Bull is exactly what April needs to pull her out of her comfort zone and to be able to forgive, forget, and lead a full life.
April is what Bull needs to complete his life and help him deal with his past and show him that he does have a place he belongs.
This is one of those wonderful stories that has left me speechless, I want to tell you how fabulous this story is but I just don't know if I have the words to describe all my feelings when I finished this book.
Vicki Wilkerson has created characters so touching, charismatic, compassionate, caring, and loyal, that I would love to sit down with them and maybe have one of those chili dogs at the bait shop. I adored all the characters but I felt the deepest connection with April. I just adored her and so felt for her in so many of the situations she was in. Bull of course, who could not possibly love Bull, I know I sure did. That fellow is one wonderful biker, he's hotter than hot, and has huge heart. I also liked Jenna (April's best friend) she soon found out that you have to look beyond the outside package to see what is on the inside.
If you enjoy a book with a lot of emotional scenes, some sweet romance, with a little humor thrown in here and there, I think you will enjoy this book. I know I certainly did. I believe I see that this has a series name and number one after it. Ohhh I do hope that means that Ms. Wilkerson is working on another fabulous book. I will be anxious to see what she has in store for us readers next.
