Title: Rake’s Redemption
Series: Wind Dragons MC, #4
Author: Chantal Fernando
Release Date: 28th June, 2016
In New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando’s latest novel in the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series, Rake—baddest of the bad boys—gets his own romance at last!
Rake is known for being up for anything, in and out of the bedroom. He’s wild, he’s deadly, yet quick with a joke or a stolen kiss. Known as the player of the WDMC, he loves women, the more the merrier. However, behind his womanizing façade, Rake hides the pain of losing his first love, Bailey. He hasn’t loved anyone since, and doesn’t think he ever will.
Seven years after their split, Rake and Bailey run into each other at the MC’s favorite club. Old wounds resurface, secrets are spilled…and passionate feelings are awakened. But they’ve each done things to hurt the other, hurt them too badly to get over it—haven’t they? Only when Bailey’s connection to Rake puts her in danger from another Club member does he realize that there’s nothing he won’t do to protect her—and claim her as his once again.

I was over the moon when given the opportunity to review this book. This is the fourth in the series and they just get better and better.
Chantal has written a story where emotions play a big part. I found myself gripping my Kindle at some points and then the tears started to flow. As I got into this read, I had the pleasure of meeting up with great characters from previous books, and meeting a few new ones was when the laughter started. From the beginning, we see a young Rake and Bailey in love and talking about their future which intrigued me. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen between these two and I wasn’t in the slightest bit disappointed.
Growing up, Adam aka Rake had no one except his sister and his girl. But after being broken hearted, he joined the Wind Dragons MC where he changed into our bad boy biker. He loves women; in fact, I would go as far as saying he is the worst one in the whole club. Out having fun with his buddies and sister, he finds her talking to the one woman he hates with a passion, the one he still loves with everything he has. Hmm… indeed a fine line, I thought to myself. Their eyes lock, old feelings overpower him and oh boy, did he make a good fist of telling her what she could do. It’s as if he’s haunted by her since he keeps seeing reminders at every corner. By putting two and two together, his anger is intensified by what looks like even more betrayal.
I really connected to Bailey. This young, single mom who has no other family, has a job she loves and always wanted. Out on the town, she bumps into two besties from her childhood, one being the sister of the man she loved. Seeing Rake again brings back many hurtful memories. He has no idea that Bailey is hiding something from him. Regardless of everything they’ve been through or how they feel, she had to do this to protect Rake from the truth. Finally, when I thought I couldn’t take anymore and was shouting at her to just get on with it and tell him, she does what she did literally shattering my heart. One problem; I thought things couldn’t get worse for them. How very wrong I was!
Secrets are revealed, actions and loyalties are put to the test. Will they be able to move forward? Can the past be buried and all be forgiven? You’ll have to read it to find out. I can assure you that you won’t be let down as this book has everything and more besides. Most definitely a five star read Ms Fernando and anxiously waiting for the next read.
