My Thoughts
Living in Texas, Needles never really fit. His home life stunted him and he just wanted to be free to be himself, whoever that may be. So off he went, with no goodbyes and an eye on the open road. He left his past firmly in the past... until he's forced to face it. When tragedy strikes, Needles heads home and has to face all that he left behind, especially the best friend who has turned out to be the woman of his dreams.

Who doesn't love a broken hero? I enjoyed being inside Needles' head. I liked that although he was forced into the role of single dad and wasn't making the best of it, he didn't deny his failings. He knew he wasn't doing right by his daughter and realized that he had to give her more because she deserved it. No matter what it cost him, he had to do all that he could to ensure her happiness. I can't wait to see the way their relationship develops in the story to come. While I liked what seemed to blossom between Needles and Bess, it didn't feel like enough, making it less of a genuine experience. I'm used to a certain level of authenticity to the chemistry between characters from this author and I found it lacking here. I'm hoping to see it fleshed out in the full-length story.

With Needles heading to Texas, it looks like I'll be reading and discovering a new-to-me author, Khloe Wren. She's created the Charon MC and from the glimpse I've received, they seem to have almost as much heart as the Satan's Knights. C'mon, no club beats my Knights because I'll always be Property of Parrish!!

Book Synopsis
Rite of Passage
When I was nineteen, I left Texas and my dysfunctional family behind, and I haven't looked back. Life was good for a while. I joined the Satan's Knights motorcycle club and immersed myself in art. The kind of art that requires a gun and a body as a blank canvas. But all good things must come to an end, and I soon found myself as a single father, struggling to find my place in a new charter.

Now my estranged mother wants me to come home, which means facing my past. And that doesn't just include my family. It also includes the childhood friend I left behind. All grown up and pissed as hell, Bess is giving me one hell of a cold shoulder.
I'm not the Ryan Perry she remembers, and she sure as hell isn't willing to get to know Needles, the man I am now.

With her fancy clothes and her holier-than-thou attitude, she's creeping under my skin and filling my head with impure thoughts. I need to get back to New York before I get hooked on something I'm not supposed to have, or worse, start believing that this is my Rite of Passage.
