Book Review: For the Love of Dixie By Shyla Colt

For the Love of Dixie
By Shyla Colt
Genre: Contemporary Romance

After having her heart broken by Echo, Dixie Dunn makes a new life for herself, away from the Kings Of Chaos. Now, she must return in order to get her stubborn father back to fighting shape after a heart attack. She knows she’ll have to face Echo, as he has made it clear over the years that she still belongs to him. But she refuses to give him any chance to crush her heart again. 

Echo, Joel Spencer knows that Dixie hates him, but he also knows she yearns for him. After being forced by his hateful father to practically leave her at the altar when they were teens, he realizes that he has his work cut out for him. One thing is on his side, he knows what she wants and needs. This time, he WILL make her his again, and to hell with whoever gets in his way.

My Review

For the Love of Dixie is more than just your average hot contemporary romance novel. While Shyla Colt knocks it out of the park with the steamy scenes and passionate love between Dixie and Echo, she also includes the serious issue of racism. Dixie is a strong black woman who has grown up in a male dominated and very white motorcycle club. She falls for a tough biker who is just as head over heels for her. They deal with hatred and anger over their relationship. This story contains lots of action and perseverance. I highly recommend this book to those want a powerful love story!

Author Bio 

Shyla Colt grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, but has lived a variety of different places thanks to her wanderlust, interesting careers, and marriage to a United States Marine. She's always loved books and wrote her very first novel at the age of fifteen. She keeps a copy of her first submission letter on her desk for inspiration. 

After a lifetime of traveling, she settled down and knew her time had come to write. Diving into her new career like she does everything else, with enthusiasm, research and a lot of prayers, she had her first book published in June of 2011. As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there's never a dull moment in her household. 

She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company. A self-professed rebel with a pen. Her goal is to diversify romance as she continues to genre hop, and offer up strong female characters.
