Lil’s and Jay lived their very own fairy tale biker romance. He was her first love, her only love. She was what he needed, what he wanted.
Insecurities, fear and misconceptions lead Lil’s to make a heartbreaking decision to abandon that life and love behind, before it consumes and destroys her as it did her mother years earlier.
But… moving on isn’t so easy when you are deeply connected to your past.
When Lil’s finds herself in a whirlwind of danger her knight in shining armor, er…, her badass biker on a Harley bails her out. But at what cost?
Right off the bat we are taken to the seedy underworld of motorcycle gangs. She’s not sure as which is worse – being held by the rival bikie gang or having the face the music with her ex-partner.
Their reunion is a volatile one. Miscommunication was the cause of Lil leaving and Jay has not forgiven her. She broke his heart and didn’t even give him a chance to explain. Months of their relationship had been damaged because Lil packed up the left.
Lil is instantly likeable with her brashness – she tries to stand her ground but Jay has it over her. She knows where her heart is and he shows that he’s supportive, she just never gave him the chance. Jay is firmly embedded in the ideal that he is to provide, Lil is striving and practically begging for equality. I liked how this book had the present and the flashbacks – helped understand the dynamic of their relationship and how it developed and evolved.
This story for me really hits its stride at about 85% – that’s when the drama really kicks off.
Don’t get me wrong – all the bits before 85% are important and great to see why the characters are the way they are.
This is a solid start to this series and I really enjoyed it. This has an unexpected ending. I even had to read it twice to ensure that I read it right. This is the pivotal change where this is no longer just a second chance at love love story. This becomes a tale of revenge.
It would be remise of me if I didn’t mention the editing / formatting of this book – but Ms Oakes assures me – it’s being looked into. I would hate for someone to criticise or dislike this book due to the errors.
