A knife that cut too deep,
a slash that still burns,
failures piled high and flammable.
I held my losses at bay with knives, with guns, my hands,
my bike, my brothers,
my iron will.
But not my heart.
No, my heart was the flame
that would light the match,
ignite the blaze.
I am the enforcer
The killer when called upon,
the ruthless hound on demand,
the one who cleans the mess left behind.
I can make you bleed,
Smash you to pieces.
But she smashed all my excuses,
and I shattered hers.
For a split second she was mine,
but I will always be hers.
really beautiful things,
you can’t hold onto forever.
Kindle Friends Forever 5 ★ Review
by Claire Rose
Warning! I’m not saying too much about this novel as I feel it’s one you need to experience yourself. There is so much happening and many crucial details I don’t want you to miss out on, so why not just one click because I’m absolutely sure you won’t be disappointed! I most certainly wasn’t.
I was asked by a good friend of mine who I love dearly if I would like to review this book as she has read this author’s work before and highly recommend it. I agreed without blinking an eyelid as I adore MC / romance novels. And wow, this read was beyond my expectations! What I will say is even though this can be read as standalone, my personal opinion would be to read the first two books in this series before as they give more of a background on some of the secondary characters.
I fell for Jill. She’s a thirty-two year old single parent starting out anew in a town where she’s been hired to look after her ex’s mom who has MS. She also decided to help a friend out as past events made her feel guilty and it was her way of making things right. While helping out Grace and Lock and doing her job; very well at that, we see her slowly fall for Lock’s best friend Boner. Boy oh boy… it starts to get hot and steamy between these two but he keeps pushing her away. Until one evening her ex rolls back into town and he’s not happy about this at all.
I truly adored Boner. He comes across as hard, cold and a man of few words. Underneath there is a man do be discovered and I enjoyed every minute getting to know him. Not to mention he’s so damn hot! He is one of the older bikers and is the Jack’s muscle man, the enforcer for the club. He realises that he failed his friend, Grace, and he’s going to protect her friend, Jill, come hell or high water. In spite of the fact that strong feelings are forming, he still can’t let himself be truly happy since past events are holding him back. Now here is where the fun begins! When he receives new information and someone from the past comes back to haunt him, he refuses to give the one good light in his life Jill, more heartache. And things are about to take a turn for the worse. Can he escape from a disastrous situation he’s in? Will to they be able to get their happy ending? You’ll only find out by reading it.
The writing style of this author is something else! In my opinion, it takes a very skilful author to write a male POV, especially an alpha MC one. Ms Porter manages to bring Boner’s caring and sensitive side alive onto the pages of this book without him coming over as soft which we all no is not part of an MC members character.
After reading this book, I realised that my friend was right. I could not find fault in this read which is edited to perfection and flows faster than fast with moments of true angst. Nevertheless, I also laughed, cried and even shouted a few times in parts. Nooooo… totally untrue! To show you how affected I was, my knuckles turned white while holding tightly onto my kindle. I loved it from the very first page right up to the very last one. Even the secondary characters were beautifully developed. It has to be one of my ten top best books for 2015. For this reason, I award Iron & Bone five fantastic stars. Going to one click the first two books in this series now. Well done to the author; you should be proud.

Cat Porter was born and raised in New York City, but also spent a few years in Europe and Texas along the way. As an introverted, only child, she had very big, but very secret dreams for herself. She graduated from Vassar College, was a struggling actress, an art gallery girl, special events planner, freelance writer, restaurant hostess and had all sorts of other crazy jobs all hours of the day and night to help make her dreams come true. She has two children’s books traditionally published under her maiden name. She now lives in Athens, Greece with her husband and three children, and freaks out regularly and still daydreams way too much. She is addicted to the History Channel, her iPad, her husband’s homemade red wine, really dark chocolate, and her Nespresso coffee machine. Writing keeps her somewhat sane, extremely happy, and a productive member of society.
