I actually finished this one to the bitter end and was so totally exhausted I had to take a week off reading. Why? Because their heads were so fucked up they kept going in circles with what they were thinking.
Rose Darnell works as a low-wage waitress who has dreams of singing and playing her guitar. She just needs cash for a new guitar to audition for a gig. Rose is no stranger to the MC life. Her father was a member, a strung out wife on his arm along with two brothers who patched into the MC. Dear ole Daddy is currently serving time, but she doesn’t miss his ass one bit. Growing up in this abusive family, she has dreams of making it big with her music and moving away from town. Rose makes the biggest mistake asking her brothers for the cash which they gladly give to her while also causing violence to break out. Feeling guilty about how her new guitar was obtained, Rose pawns it and opens up a can of worms that lands her in the middle of a turf war between rival MCs.
Thorne has only known the MC most of his life, but now he’s the president of a dying MC. He knows he has a mole in the club and Rose is his ticket to finding out who it is or in actuality, which of her brother’s is the rat. Under the disguise as protection, Thorne installs her in his room and soon to be bed. With dark passions, he uses Rose for his own ends, while also pushing her to think darker thoughts herself. He sees more in Rose than what he first thought and as the rival MC grows closer, he starts to feel more protective of Rose. Truth can hurt more than just the person it was kept from.
I really thought this would be a good story, but after a while Thorne’s thoughts gave me a headache. They went round and round over the same topics over and over and I just got crazier thinking I had read this already. Rose wasn’t much better. I kind of get grumpy when women can’t seem to think because they are so attracted to someone, who really isn’t that good for them.
There are some harsh realities in this story from incest and rape. If you don’t like this (which I don’t) then you want to skip this story.
Overall, I found it way to raw, gritty and boring. The evil is pure evil and the good, well, there wasn’t really much of the good left in these people’s lives. It was dismal and depressing. So in the end, I couldn’t recommend this one to anyone as it wasn’t even something I wished I had read myself. I can’t get back my used up time unfortunately.
