Three words that describe heroes of the modern world. But what if those words also described a man who walked on the wrong side of the law? A man who lived by his own code, his own honor and was loyal to a group of men who were so far over the line of the law, the line was nowhere in site? What if that man made you feel safe, cherished and wanted you all to himself? What then?
Marie’s brother Jeff made a huge mistake. He started working for the Reapers then he stole from them. When they found they went after him with a vengeance. Marie was given a choice, go with Horse and be his or Jeff would die. Marie would have to give everything to Horse, her freedom, her body. All she had to do now was hope Jeff came up with the money to pay them back. Then, maybe, she could go free.
HOLY HOT HELL BATMAN! This is one intense, angst filled, hot romance with some hot sex. Some of that sex is sweet and some of it angry sex, but all of it is HOT HOT HOT!
I felt so bad for Marie. She was stuck with a brother who she loved, but ended up putting her in danger. She paid with her body. While things did turn out well for her, it was not an easy road to haul. I was amazed she stood up to Horse. He was hot but scary. Marie made some difficult choices and stood by those decisions even when it was hard. She did it for her brother.
The romance between Horse and Marie was unconventional at best and torturous at worst. I felt so bad for both them. Marie didn’t understand Horse’s world and he couldn’t….wouldn’t do conventional romance for her. But in his own way, he showed her he cared. She just couldn’t understand his ways.
Joanna Wylde did an amazing job of showing how life with an outlaw motorcycle gang was not glamorous but it was a choice people made. They weren’t perfect, but they were family and they stood by each other. She showed how hard that life is and how filled with danger it is.
This was my first book by Joanna Wylde and I can’t wait to read more. Holy Hot Hell Batman! Bring on the bad-boys!
