Publisher's Summary

Jack "Preacher" Prior is at a crossroads - literally. Left for dead in the Badlands, he's managed to survive. He's stolen a truck, but where can he go? Body broken, mind reeling from betrayal by his own MC brothers, he knows he won't last a day back in Rapid City in his current condition.

Erin Walker is at a crossroads of her own. Dealt a bad hand by being the daughter of Buck Walker, ex-rodeo champ, she's made her own way in the world without his help. She owns Thunder Ridge Ranch outright, and she's carved out a piece of paradise for herself with her own two hands. She's not giving it up without a fight, but she's alone in the world, with no one to trust.

In Erin, Preacher finds something that doesn't exist in his own world: a smart, fierce, independent woman who sets his blood on fire. For Erin, the mysterious man who threatens her life might very well be the only one who can save it.

Contains mature themes.

    "Another Five Star Hit From West!"


    What a captivating, and heart warming story! West has done it again! After listening to the Burnout series, I was excited to learn about the spin off, Rapid City Stories, and it's first story, Preacher. West does an outstanding job developing a plot that is well balanced with humor, drama, violence, steamy sex scenes with plenty of dirty talk, and a awesome HEA. What I liked even more than the plot, was the character development.

    As leader of a MC club, Preacher has done a lot of bad things in his life, but when he is left for dead, he is forced to leave Rapid City to recover, and plot his revenge. He eventually finds himself on a ranch where he meets Erin. Their first encounter is not on the friendliest of terms, but they will soon learn they both need each other. Erin is strong independent women who is trying to prove she can make it, but in reality she needs assistance to run the ranch, and Preacher is the perfect person. As the days pass, and these two become closer, we see Preacher's character transform from the harden biker to a loveable man who is crazy about his women and dog. Their journey was fun to hear unfold, from the laugh out loud moments, playful banter to the steamy sex scenes. You can't help but to fall in love with these two characters. When trouble comes knocking, Preacher will whatever it takes to keep Erin safe.

    Mason Lloyd did outstanding job narrating this story, and was able to portray the characters, and emotions flawlessly. I sure hope there are plans to release West's other series in audio! I'm definitely on-board for any future books by the West/Lloyd team!

    "Just Love Preacher"

    I loved this book. It made me laugh and even shed a tear or two. I REALLY like the narrator. I will be listening to it again without a doubt. I loved how the brought in a few of the characters from the Burnout series. Nice to see Jack and Chris patch things up. Finally Rawlings gets what he deserves!!!! There were a few inconsistencies. and editing was a bit weird in a few instances but over all I really loved it.

    "A funny romance."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake! He was sweet and protected his family. Loving and strong.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I LOVED the fight between Jake and the rooster! I LOVED IT! It was hilarious. I laughed so hard i cried. "Cock-a-doodle-do Mother Fucker!" LOL!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed mostly and my heart was touched, with a little teardrop here and there.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good writing.

    Story
    "Too Violent & Crude For Me!"
    What disappointed you about Preacher?

    Preacher is the president of a biker gang called the Buzzard's. The Buzzard's own the "drug trade" in Rapid City. The book is about gang life, prostitutes, and dirty cops. And of course change. I won't say I was disappointed in his character. His character was fairly well written. I didn't care for the story line.


    What was most disappointing about Dahlia West’s story?

    This is the first book I've listened to from Dahlia West. I purchased it based on the reviews and story line. This book was too violent and sexually crude for me. If this book is typical of her writing, I won't be listening or reading any more of her books. I regret finishing it and not returning it after the first 2 chapters.


    Have you listened to any of Mason Lloyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to Mason Lloyd before. I liked the performance he gave, even though I didn't like the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Preacher?

    I would have cut the scene in the beginning when Preacher Killed two of his gang members for betrayal.


    Any additional comments?

    At times I found it hard to follow what was going on. There were moments where Preacher is remembering his past, however there was no lead in to that memory. The first time he started a memory I actually backed up the story thinking I had missed something. The author did this several times throughout the book, each time I kept thinking I was lost. Without giving a spoiler alert, I didn't care much for the ending. I could come up with at least two other possible endings which would have made more sense.

    "Good book! Well worth the credit!!!!"

    I really enjoyed this book!!! Great narrator and good story line! I would suggest listening/reading the Burnout series first - it gives you a little insight on some of the characters. This book kept my interest from beginning to end! Love , romance, suspense and HOT scenes - loved it!!

    "Enjoyable story :)"

    3-3.5 stars

    This was a good story. I liked Erin but Jack was...well, he's an asshole a good portion of the time (at least at first). This is the first story I've read by this author and based on this story I may try more of her work in the future.

    Erin is a ranch owner and is starting her own business rehabilitating horses that have been injured/abused. Erin is the daughter of a famous rodeo star but she tries to get out from under her father's reputation, especially since they don't have the best relationship. Erin hasn't had much luck with guys and isn't in a relationship when the story begins.

    Jack was the leader of the Badlands Buzzards MC, having taken over the position after his father died. Jack was content in his position until some greedy brothers decide to kill him, thinking they'd get more money if they were in charge. Jack managed to survive but was injured and ended up taking shelter in the barn of a remote ranch.

    Erin is boarding a horse that was injured and was sent to her for rehab. She goes out to the barn to check on the horses at night and surprises/is surprised by Jack, who took shelter in the barn. Their first night isn't a good one as he basically takes her captive in her own home because he's injured and thinks she'll call the cops on him. Part of the story is from Jack's PoV so we're able to tell that he doesn't mean all his threats and isn't intending to harm Erin but I still wasn't thrilled with his actions. Jack plans to leave the next day but when Erin runs into some trouble that Jack saves her from, he decides to stay to help her for a bit.

    They don't plan it out but Jack ends up sticking around Erin's ranch much longer than expected. They form a connection and although it's not always perfect, it's hard to break and keeps Jack from leaving. Jack tends to vacillate between being a cold-hearted bastard and a sweet guy that is new at emotions but cares deeply. TBH, I found it a bit disconcerting at times because one minute I'd want to slap Jack and the next I wanted to hug him. Erin has some issues with people being too interested in her ranch and wanting to cause trouble for her but they're not a major issue in the story. Jack's past does cause some issues too and there is some drama/angst due to Jack having to "handle" things and it causes a rift between Erin and Jack. Thankfully, Once things are dealt with, Jack and Erin are able to work things out between them and they end the story starting a well deserved HEA together.

    This was an enjoyable story. I liked Erin very much and thought she was a good heroine. Jack was confusing but by the end, I liked him alright. The story had some imperfections but it was still a good story and I liked it overall. :)

    "I liked him from the Burnout series"

    I saw the potential for this character, while listening to the Burnout series. I was so hoping that he would choose a different life, like his childhood best friend, Chris. ( AKA "Shooter" from the Burnout series) Have you ever met a person who has been stripped of their humanity, due to the horrible things they have lived through? Despite that, however, you can still see the pieces of goodness, in their soul? Preacher's character had that vibe, in the previous series. I'm so glad I bought this book. It is not only a romance but it has some encounters between Jack and a small rooster that had me laughing so hard. I almost wet my pants. It also had parts that made me cry. Listen to the Burnout series first, then get this one. you won't regret it.
