Chelsea spent most of her life running.
She was young when her parents were killed, and she was thrown into the system as just another statistic. One foster home after another, hell after hell. When things got too hard, her first instinct was to get out and fast.
She didn’t mind being a club girl. Who wouldn’t want a group of possessive alpha males on your side and in your bed? The freedom and the lifestyle allowed her to spread her wings while the rules and bylaws kept everyone in line. It was comfortable – safe.
But while her head told her she was happy, her heart reminded her constantly of what she really wanted – Brothers by Blood President, Optimus. He was a brooding asshole who was sexy, loyal and pushed the boundaries of both her body and her mind. He never let her all the way in, but she still couldn’t stay away from him – he was addictive.
Optimus had only one rule – family comes first.
He knew that sometimes sacrifices needed to be made in order to keep the ones he loved safe. He’d done it before and he would do it again.
Being President of the Brothers by Blood MC meant he couldn’t show any weakness. His feelings for Chelsea were off the charts, but so far he’d managed to hide them and keep her at an arm’s length thinking he was protecting her. Beautiful, athletic and sassy, she wasn’t just another club girl, she was HIS girl.
Danger is fast approaching and Chelsea is in its direct sight. Will it be too late for Optimus to show Chelsea how he really feels? And when secrets are revealed will Chelsea stay and stand beside the man she wants or will the urge to run just be too strong?
Review by Claire Rose on behalf of KFF
Claire has award this read 5 sublime stars
First and foremost, you need to one click this absolutely fantastic book. Twists, turns and secrets brought tears to my eyes rooting for the alpha men and a very special heroine. I do hope my review does this novel justice as I was literally blown away by this story told in present tense with the protagonists’ points of view. Even though this can be read as a standalone, I really do suggest reading book one first as you will get more of an idea of the story and its characters.
Wow — just wow! I LOVED IT. I have reviewed quite a few MC books, but this is on a whole new level. Looking at the gals’ we love to hate perspective for messing with our bikers has in fact, made me understand why they become club girls. Not everyone of them expects to become an ol’ lady or have their HEA.
Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea! What a strong and beautiful character. After her mother and father were murdered, she was thrown into the foster care system and had a rough time growing up. Then she found her way into the MC life as a club girl with no expectations. All the club wanted to do was protect her, put her through college and give her the family she had never had. Chelsea is the one for the prez. Everyone inside the club knows how they feel about each other, yet he won’t claim her. He is trying to protect her as her life is in danger in a big way. She has a flashback in time. She knows what she must do. Run!
Optimus is the club’s president and just how I like my MC men! Strong and one-hundred percent alpha; however, he’s riddled with guilt from his past which will soon to be revealed. He has strong feelings for one of the club girls, Chelsea. In spite of the fact that he keeps pushing her away, he won’t let anyone else near her. He’s also hiding a secret from her and only time will tell before she finds out. The club’s trying to figure out why and by whom her life has been put in peril, and therefore he reaches a harsh decision. I quite agreed with the club’s stance regarding Optimus’ wrongdoing and I got so damn mad with him. Screaming out loud at my Kindle didn’t help matters, either. I found all the pulling and pushing, him blowing hot and cold, totally exhausting. So much so that I could have jumped into the book and slapped the f***er!
Quote: Chelsea ~ “I can’t do it, Op. I can’t sit around and pretend like every thing’s fine. I can’t pretend that I’m okay seeing you every day and knowing I can’t touch you. It hurts, Op. It hurts so bad.”
Optimus ~ “I can’t …”
Chelsea ~ “Let me go”
Optimus ~ “I can’t …”
Living outside the club’s protection, Chelsea tries to patch her broken heart. But her life takes a nasty turn making Optimus realise his ginormous mistake and only hopes its not too late. Secrets are out, betrayals abound from all sides and even worse, the baddies— they are on her heels. Optimus goes crazy. I went dooallay and with heart pounding nineteen to the dozen, I swore my head off. Is this the end for them or do they get their HEA? Read it and find out.
Now the ending. Miss Jane, how could you do this to me? I need the next book like now! Regardless of the slip ups in the editing which were few and far between, this read had my full attention from page one. I became part of the story which I have rated this five stars. I have already recommended this author to friends. Well done you.
