I’m not a hero. I’m a bad dude who’s done bad things. And the sooner she understands that, the better off we’ll be.
I’ve just got out of prison and I’m running from my MC, so my step-sister’s best friend has agreed to drive me across the country.
Summer’s my ride. That’s all. But she captivates me, and I don’t have a damn clue why. She’s a distraction I can’t afford.
Is it because I’ve been told she’s forbidden?
Is it because she’s preppy and freakin’ beautiful, so not a part of my world?
With every mile of our trip, every spark of connection, she seems to inch closer to me. The temptation is too much to resist.
But she has no idea just how dangerous life would be with me. I broke club rules. I betrayed my brothers to save a woman’s life. If the Red Dragons find us we’ll be in trouble. And if I give into my desires, she’ll be in deeper than she realises…
A story about an MC? Of course I had to read that. I do know they often have a bad reputation and a lot of it is true, but it’s also true that you should never judge a book by it’s cover. There is that genuine brotherhood and it’s kind of special to know there will always be someone to look out for you.
It’s the first book of a new series and that takes a bit of time to get into. The start is a bit slow but there is enough information to keep you interested. The biggest part of the romance is in the beginning of the book in my opinion. Although there is some left for the rest of the book too, so don’t worry, the action takes place in the second part of the story.
I liked the story that grew between Niyol and Summer, but I loved the MC part.
I am curious to know how it will develop and I have a feeling the MC will play a bigger role now. I hope I am right :). Looking forward to a big dose of badass. 🙂
Anyway, the more the story grew on me, the more I was captivated. 4 stars for this one.
Thank you, Heather Van Fleet, Bookouture and Netgalley.
