He was watching as she approached, a red-hot woman in cool black leather. She was more than he ever dreamed he could handle, but when she made her demands known, he had no choice but to capitulate to this exotic, mysterious, and all too delicious biker broad.

A hot day, a private beach, and a not so unwelcome trespasser, oh the fun that is had! This is not a traditional romantic love story, although if you are familiar with Ms. Burke's writing you know that her stories never are. But like all her stories this one is full of passion, witty writing, and lots of naughty fun.

I don't usually read stories that are this short, they tend to be lacking in so many ways that I never really enjoy them for wondering about all the things that are never fully explained or explored. But as usual Ms. Burke has proven to be the exception rather than the rule. Biker Broad is a fun and sexy romp that titillates the imagination.

What makes this story unique is that there is very little personal detail given, there is simply a man and a woman and one afternoon. This is not a telling of how they met and fell in love, or even a wistful remembering of a great life together as theirs is nearing an end, this is the middle of their story with no beginning and only a hint as to what's going to come next. Even though no names are used and no indication is given that these two people have ever met before there is a familiarity in the way they talk and how they interact with each other that belays the notion that they are strangers. This is proven to be true when it's revealed that the couple is married, but other than that no personal information is given about the couple. I really like how this was done, enough detail is given to make the characters real but the rest is left up to the reader. The couple could have been married for years, or newlyweds on their honeymoon, they could have been high school sweethearts, or met only recently indulging in a whirlwind romance.

Ms. Burke is known for her wonderfully quirky and captivating characters, and while these two are more of an everyman type they are no less delightfully quirky or captivating. The woman is given a more detailed physical description, but it is the man's description of her that not only brings her character to life but also gives a hilarious insight into the male psyche. "She was Eve in the garden, Venus being born, the porn slut that he jerked off to." It is such a decidedly male description, that you can't help but be charmed by its lack of finesse. It is the perfect combination of poetry and crudeness to make him seem like a real man and not a over romanticized fictional character.

Biker Broad is a short sexy read full of passion and fun. Ms. Burke's unique imagination breaths new life into the everyman character, changing him from everyman to everyman you could possibly want him to be. A day at the beach has never been so much fun.
