Standalone - Satan's Fury MC #5

Length: 286 pages

You can't fight fate, especially when it brings you a girl like MJ Thompson. She wasn't just beautiful. No, she was so much more than that. She was smart with a smile full of magic and curves that drove me to distraction. I wanted her, but there was a catch: She was the lawyer handling my father's will. And as if that wasn't enough, her dad was a cop.

I should've known better than to get mixed up with a girl like her, but I just couldn't resist. I wanted to feel her body pressed against mine. I wanted to hear her call my name while she was wrapped in my arms, so I ignored my instincts. I made her mine. After one night, she had me, heart and soul. Every ounce of doubt, every second thought, vanished.

Life was good. I had my woman by my side. The club's new pipeline was moving forward, and I was coming to terms with my past. Then, without warning, it all fell apart. I lost her. She skipped town, leaving only a note and a lot of unanswered questions. I thought I had to let her go, but she had a secret. After discovering what she was hiding, there was nothing I wouldn't do to have her back in my arms.

Sometimes the road takes you on an unexpected turn, and you end up exactly where you're meant to be.

My Review

I saw MC Club romance and I thought dark and suspenseful, but that's not what this was. This was a story about love. Love between the brothers of the Club. The love of family. And the epic love that Smokey and Marley Jo found with each other. I think this was the first MC Club book I've ever read that focused more on the emotions and relationships and less on the crime, drama and mayhem. While there were suspenseful elements and there were references to crime, in the grand scheme of things, they were just a drop in the bucket of this story.

This author took me out of the expected and I liked it a lot. There was just enough character development, intriguing plot points, and intense interpersonal relationships with a cast of secondary characters (who I assume were main characters of other books in the series), that this story was well-rounded and a pleasure to read.

Recommended to those who enjoy hot and steamy contemporary reads that are low on angst and high on love
