Loving this series

To be clear: loving this series, not loving these heroes. I wouldn’t want any one of ’em near me, my friends, or my daughter. But I’m still loving this series. What sorcery is this??

I can’t explain why I love a dark romance series featuring heroes I don’t even like, but here we are. I did find Ripper more appealing than Deuce, I’ll give him that. Deuce was just heinous, both in book 1 and book 2. I still don’t think he’s redeemed, and I suspect he never will be. It seems to be part of his character- just unapologetically messed up.

Anyway, although Deuce and Eva were in this book it wasn’t THEIR book, so I’ll try to avoid talking about them.

The story of Ripper and Danny is a sad one. I did think that a particular element of what happened felt a bit glossed over. It popped up out of nowhere, happened over a few pages, and then that was it until it was brought up a couple of times later in the book. What happened was a big deal, and would have had some lead up, so I was surprised to see it get so little attention. I won’t go into it further to avoid a spoiler, but you’ll see what I mean.

The heat level between Ripper and Danny was high, and I thought the part where Danny had scars and wanted to hide them from Ripper was a clever inclusion.

Overall I am loving this series, including the sneak peek into the next book. I will definitely be continuing on. The drama, the angst… I NEED it!

Warning: This is not a story about fate or destiny. This is a story about pain, sorrow, and suffering. This is an impulsive whirlwind romance between two lovers that are not meant to be together. Theirs is not a world with sunshine and roses. Instead, their love blossoms in a secret world full of crime, violence, and death. Their story is about what can be born from nightmares.

Danielle “Danny” West is the daughter of Deuce West, President of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. A sweet and beautiful girl, she loses her way, searching for things that are always out of her reach. Erik “Ripper” Jacobs is the Sergeant at Arms in the Hell’s Horsemen. Once a man who always had a smile on his face, his life takes a turn for the worst when a tragedy befalls him, leaving him scarred and broken. During a midsummer night, Danny and Ripper’s paths cross, forever changing their lives. Hastily, their lust turns to love until another tragedy forces them apart. On a journey that is marred with ugliness and chaos, Danny and Ripper must discover if their unforeseen connection can find the beauty in their world.

This is Danny and Ripper’s story.

Everything has beauty. Even the ugly. Especially the ugly.
Because without ugly, there would be no beauty.

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
