When Tripp Cavanaugh finally recovers after being left for dead at the gates of his club, his intention is to leave and resume his nomadic lifestyle. But when his president asks him to stick around and oversee the club’s newest business adventure, he readily agrees. He has no idea the simple request will turn his world inside out, encountering the one woman who will irrevocably change him.
Barely escaping her past, Reece Kendrick flees across the country and takes the first job she can find, working at a club owned by the Knights Corruption. Vowing to keep her heart guarded, everything changes the moment she sees him. Confused and powerless to stop the dynamic unraveling between them, she becomes enthralled with a stranger.
A man who challenges her every instinct.
A man who makes her feel inexplicably safe.
A man who will do anything for her… even kill.
Will her past threaten to destroy her one chance for happiness, or will she be forced to leave the one man who vowed to protect her?
Because it moved so quickly, Reece, running from her past, repeatedly tried to convince the reader and herself Tripp was a good man. Why else would she jump in deep with him so quickly. He was a good man but his actions showed that. I got it without Reece telling me. Especially with the lengths he’d gone to, to keep her safe.
Too much time was spent on Prez Marek’s revenge and an unexpected consequence. It’s a thread throughout the series and finishes certain club business, but it felt like a whole other story, like a novella inside this book.
I liked Tripp with Reece. The moments spent with them were meaningful, but I would have liked more character development for Tripp and Reece. They definitely had chemistry and Tripp got his HEA.
I loved seeing the characters from other stories in the series pepper this book. But, it felt like thanksgiving dinner – so much is going on and you have to see all your relatives but don’t really spend a lot of quality time with any of them.
Overall, a good, spicy read, just not great. The cover, awesome.
