Books Piper Loves: “Bone Rider” by J. Fally



This book, you guys. THIS BOOK. I’ve had a book hangover all week because this book was so good I’ve been having a hard time moving on to something new. This is what I said on FB shortly after finishing it:

I loved this book. Looooooved. Loved it like I instantly searched for J. Fally’s social media links right after finishing it, and finding none, I sat here and emailed her a fan letter.

SO. GOOD. I can’t. It was amazing. McClane is my boo, and I adored Riley and Misha.

Some people might not like all the POV switching, but for me, the book couldn’t have been told any other way. It had the perfect blend of humor and action that I adore in action-adventure films. Throw in a bit of sci-fi and some romance and I was a GONER.

Onto the favorite shelf it goes. I’m buying it in paperback too, just so I can snuggle it.

If you’re a fan of action-adventure flicks like “Die Hard,” I seriously recommend this book.



Riley Cooper is on the run. Misha Tokarev, the love of his life, turned out to be an assassin for the Russian mob, and when it comes to character flaws, Riley draws the line at premeditated murder. Alien armor system McClane is also on the run, for reasons that include accidentally crashing a space ship into Earth and evading U.S. military custody. A failed prototype, McClane was scheduled for destruction. Sabotaging the ship put an end to that, but McClane is dubbed a bone rider for good reason—he can’t live without a host body. That’s why he first stows away in Riley’s truck and then in Riley himself. Their reluctant partnership soon evolves into something much more powerful—and personal—than either of them could have imagined.

Together, they embark on a road trip from hell, made all the more exciting by the government troops and mob enforcers hot on their trail. Misha is determined to win Riley back and willing to do whatever it takes to keep him safe. When hitman and alien join forces, they discover their impressive combined potential for death and destruction. It will take everything Riley has to steer them through the mess they create.

Buy it here.

About Piper Vaughn

Piper Vaughn wrote her first love story at eleven and never looked back. Since then, she’s known that writing in some form was exactly what she wanted to do. A reader at the core, Piper loves nothing more than getting lost in a great book—fantasy, young adult, romance, sci-fi, she loves them all! As a bisexual and Latinx person, Piper takes great pride in her heritage. She grew up in an ethnically diverse neighborhood and strives to put faces and characters of every ethnicity in her stories, so her fictional worlds are as colorful as the real one. Above all, she believes that everyone needs a little true love in their life … even if it’s only in a book.
