I’m a drifter.
A man born to ride through this world alone.
There used to be a time when I thought I was the rescuing type. I enlisted in the Marines and made it my duty—I was going to save lives.
I was going to be a true American hero.
But God had another plan.
Or maybe Satan did.
For everything I touch finds mortality.
I’m no hero.
I’m nothing.
I’m a veteran biker, a former nomad who survived war only to live in hell.
Now I ride with the Satan’s Knights of Brooklyn and I’m drifting into a different kind of chaos.
The kind that revolves around a pretty girl with intoxicating green eyes.
A girl who has the power to turn me inside out.
A girl who doesn’t need anyone to rescue her because she’s her own savior.
Until she’s not.
But a man plagued by war and the devil inside him can never be her hero.

Gina Spinelli
Strong. Independent. Fierce.
They are the three things I strived to be.
But sometimes being successful can be lonely.
Sometimes a girl just wants to be a girl and have someone take care of her.
Maybe even love her.
Sometimes the strong become vulnerable.
Or worse, the victor becomes the victim.
Sometimes we lose control or in my case it’s stripped from you.
Defeated. Broken. Haunted.
They are the three things I have become.
In my darkest hour I admit defeat.
In my darkest hour I need one person.
I need him.

I think I fell in love with this book when I read the note from the author at the start. Not only did it feel personal, it was humorous, insightful, and gave ample warning of what was to come. I know that I was definitely in love with this story, and especially in love with the man who goes by the name of Stryker, by the end of the Prologue.

This story was intense and it wasn't just about the suspenseful plot surrounding the MC Club and the mafia, although that part was intricate, detailed, hella fun, and scary AF. It was intense because of what had developed between Stryker and Gina. Every time he called her "pretty eyes" or told her "I've got you" or gave her "5 facts", I swooned right along with her.

If you're looking for hearts and flowers, hoping to discover unicorns and rainbows, or searching for a light and easy read, you won't find that in this book. It's about a veteran suffering from PTSD who found his reason to live in Gina. It's about when she lost the light of life, he became her reason. It's about finding beauty in the deepest depths of ugliness. It's about surviving, conquering, and holding onto hope.

In this book you'll find betrayal, anger, hate, and the nastiest of atrocities. You'll also find family, loyalty, understanding, forgiveness, beauty, hope, and the strongest of them all, love.
