    This is was a sexy, sweet, and exciting story for Mack and Brick. I laughed, I cried, I swooned. I became invested in their fast-moving relationship and loved the author incorporated the MC and other characters into the story.

    Another super-hot insta-love story from Mayra Statham! I loved the instant connection between Brick and Mack. Brick didn't do relationships anymore, but one look at Mack has him claiming her as his. Mack doesn't stay in one place long, preferring to travel around the country in her RV. Once she meets Brick, and gets a taste of being with him, she's thinking of making Valor, Wyoming her permanent home. Can this free-sprited hippie girl and alpha biker have a chance at a happy ever after, or aee t Another super-hot insta-love story from Mayra Statham!

Character development: Brick is so gruff that Mack thinks she doesn't like him, but he keeps showing up no matter what she says! It was great when he showed up in the middle of the night to fix her trailer. They were good together - grumpy and sunshine!

    Mayra certainly knows how to write the insta-love genre ! This is Brick and Mack's story and it is a fast paced, sweet, sexy romantic ride. Mack has never had the chance to set down roots. Having lost her parents at an early age she has roamed from relative to relative never feeling welcomed . She now takes her retro trailer and makes her way across America which ever the way the wind takes her. She has now found herself in a little town that her best friend has found love.

This was a sweet, sexy romantic whirlwind romance with our alpha man Brick and our fiercely independent woman Mack. ~~Michele McMullen ~~

    Brick and his hippy girl😍 I loved this one!! It was so sweet! Brick/Jakob and Mack were both a little lost and alone. Mack needed someone to want to keep her and Jakob was perfect for the job. This story had a lot more sweet in it, some heat and not as much drama or M.C. involvement. I really enjoyed it. I can't recall if I've read any other books by Mayra, but after this one, I will look for some. Brick and his hippy girl😍 I loved this one!! It was so sweet!

Mack is a roamer, having lost her parents at a young age she was shuttled between relatives her whole life, when she became an adult she took off going where fate takes her. She is working for a couple, Dotty and Hank, who sort of adopt her, who own a motel in town. When her camper springs a leak she goes to the hardware store to get supplies. Brick is extra rude and grunty when she comes in but can’t help but feel protective of her. He goes with her back to the motel to help cover the leaky roof with a tarp. The next morning he comes back over to check on her and things get heated. He gives in to his attraction and they start seeing each other. A little drama when a guy is beating a young girl in the room next to the one she is cleaning. She goes in to help and knocks the guy out with a Bible, thankfully Dotty calls Brick who comes and clobbers the drug dealer with a...brick. He takes her back to his place after, lots of I love yous and sexy times. Epilogue over ten years later with two kids and Mack pregnant with twins. Liked how he showed her she had value and mattered as a person, that she was wanted and lovable. Once he got over being all growly and grunty he was all in and so sweet with her.

    Mackenzie and Jakob Really loved this one! These two are different but somehow the click so easily and profoundly that their union is harmonious. When Jakob locks eyes with Mackenzie he instantly knows she is the one for him. Though he tried to keep away, nervous with the change it would bring to his organised life he was soon pursuing her, unable to let her go. Great to, likeable characters and red hot romance. Highly recommended

    Love this series! This is my first book by this author, but it certainly won't be my last. I definitely see a binge read in my future. I loved the characters. Mack needed someone to love her and want to have her in their life forever. Brick needed a sunny, sassy girl to help him feel not so lonely. This was a great addition to the Men of Valor MC.

    My first review of this series This book moved me in a way the others didn’t. With short books like this there is so little time to get invested in the characters. The author was able to do this and bring the emotion and love to life. Brick and Mack are my favorites so far in this series. I do like insta-love stories, some more than others. This was one of the more. I loved this story.

    2.8 stars. This was ok. Definitely better than the last couple books in this series, but still missing something. The writing was ok. No major errors. The dialogue wasn’t completely awful. The brief sex scenes were passionate and loving. The two characters were actually given some backstory and got to know each other a little, so the romance was there. I felt like they actually loved each other. I think it was just sort of boring. Not a lot happened, and that’s fine, but I just wanted more.

    Short but sweet! Slow Ride is a short but sweet read. I loved the instant love and connection between Mackenzie and Brick. Their chemistry was off the charts. While I really enjoyed this it was too short! I could have read more about these two

    A great book to add to the Men of Valo MC. The lighthearted read was sweet and entertaining, and I loved the characters. Jakob and ‘Hippy Girl’ were such a cute couple and had great chemistry. It was refreshing to see the ‘bad guy’ be a drug dealer than a police although they were involved just not directly. Overall a enjoyable, short read.

    Brick and Mack's story is one of sweet romance. While this is part of the Men of Valor MC series, the MC aspect is minor. Brick didn't want to be attracted to a woman, he didn't want that complication in his life. Mack is all sunshine on the surface. She dresses in bright colors, upcycles cast off items and sells them on a craft site and works for the local motel. She couldn't help but be attracted to the growly handsome biker. But it doesn't appear that he feels the same. That's fine, she is pr Brick and Mack's story is one of sweet romance. While this is part of the Men of Valor MC series, the MC aspect is minor.

Brick fights his feelings for a hot minute but the moment she walks into his hardware store, he can't help himself. This was so romantic, with several poignant moments that tugged at the heart strings. Entertaining and lovely, Slow Ride was exactly what I needed. 5 stars for Mack and Brick!

    Loved it! Mack was wandering the country, having never known what it felt like to be home, to have a family that loved you unconditionally. Brick was happy with his life in Valor, WY, but lately he felt something was missing. That changed with one glance at the hippie girl across the street, though Brick was loathe to admit to the attraction. It was an auspicious start to a forever love. Mack was skittish and Brick was skeptical. This is a sweet love story, with a large side of steam. I loved the Loved it!

Brick, stoic but steadfast in his love for Mack and Mack just a loveable as can be. This series continues to be great. Yes, I found this story to be particularly sweet, but the MC still chips in to save the day and rid Valor of the people trying to take it down. Highly recommend.

    Thank Goodness Okay, this book was great, especially if you have been reading the Valor MC series. The series had a wonderful beginning with the first week, but it changed. It went from an honorable group of men who protected the town, especially women, to a group of men who hooked up with anyone, even a drug addict. One of the men even said only the club's old ladies were due any respect; all other women were free to be grabbed, literally. Thankfully, these last two books are getting things back Thank Goodness Okay, this book was great, especially if you have been reading the Valor MC series.

    Insta-loves are my absolute favs and Mayra Statham is one of instant one click authors because she writes insta-love like no other. Add a hot MC character and you get all the yumminess. Brick and Mackenzies story is HAWT! The tension between these two characters was off the charts. Brick falls hard and fast for the eccentric Mack. Mack is a loner so when Brick starts showing her all his attention, she starts to build up her walls higher. It won’t work. Brick will smash them down. Entertaining...

    This was a fabulous short read. I really loved these two characters. This is a must read. Mackenzie has been in town for acouple months now but she is the type of girl who doesn't stay in one place long she is a wanderer... she is very skittish, not used to people sticking around or her staying in one place long. Brick ( AKA Jakob) knew she was special the moment he first seen her. She is bright and cheery to his tough hard grumpy looks. This was a fabulous short read. I really loved these two characters.

    A beautiful story I enjoyed reading how Brick (aka Jakob) fell and hard for Mack (aka Hippie Girl). This was a beautiful awakening story for both to have someone to love. Both had hard lives. I could visualize her trailer, the motel, his hardware store and his secret place he goes to to get away from it all. A wonderful story, thank you.

    Worthy ~ I loved this story. It was beautifully written. It touched on a few topics that were sensitive in a graceful way, with no judgements. It was sad, yet not. Complicated, for sure, but that was the best way for it to be written. Boy did it hit home. I enjoyed the patience and the intensity that was uniquely theirs. Loved their epilogue!
