Devil May Ride - Wendy Roberts

Enjoyable storyline, but the casual sexism that the main character's love interest employs (and the MC's stereotypical reactions) annoyed me. Example: the MC has angered a local motorcycle gang through a series of misunderstandings. She is driving home and sees a dozen of them idling on her street and in her driveway. She is understandably afraid, immediately turns around and flees before they see her. She calls her business partner (also love interest/ex-cop) and this is their conversation:

 

She unwrapped a 3 Musketeers bar and took a bite.
“Let me guess, you panicked and headed for the nearest chocolate bar.”
She could hear the laughter in his voice.
“It’s probably the kind of logic only a terrified woman understands,” Sadie said around a second bite of chocolate.

 

That is just grating.
