Well this was the first MC Romance I have read that I would list as tame. Don’t get me wrong, the hero was still alpha, took what he wanted and laid down the law, but most of the MC traditions we see just weren’t in this one. No drugs, or gun running. If there was, then we weren’t savvy to club business if you get my drift.
Now we have all drove down a section of town we wouldn’t call safe and have been scared. Imagine the police chief’s daughter driving a clunker down this road when it breaks down and a handsome, but rough guy comes to the rescue? That’s Danielle Harris, teacher, sweet and in the wrong place with the wrong ideas that keep amusing Austin “Booker” Carver. While attracted to her, he tries to keep her at arms length knowing it isn’t great to have a police chief as family.
Danielle is financially strapped to say the least after her ex-husband steals her savings. She is pretty much emotionally drained and weary, but trying to date at least. So when Booker gives her a ride, sets up to have her car repaired and takes her home, it isn’t without some sparks flying between them. Booker keeps her in the legit side of his business in a way trying to protect her and make a good impression.
Threats interfere with Austin’s plan and now he has decide Danielle is going to be his, but he does keep secret club business or even what businesses they own in town. The suspense ratchets up quickly and I loved how Dani seemed blonde some moments, but also was learning to stand on her own and make her own way. She didn’t let Booker walk all over her, but she knew when to let him take control in bed.
Booker is kind of simple. He fucks. He runs a business. He is in the MC. But in ways he is really deep as he didn’t have the greatest of childhoods. The MC is what gave him the brotherhood he needed in his life.
Overall, this was a really sweet romance with extremely lusty, sex filled moments that left my Kindle steaming. I enjoyed it for a guilty pleasure, but not sure I want to keep getting “sweet” MC Romances.
