Synopsis
Welcome to Northern Nevada. The scenery is idyllic, the people are friendly and three Motorcycle Clubs rule the tri-city area between Reno, Carson City, and Lake Tahoe with an iron fist. Gisela wasn’t introduced to the thug life, she was born into it. The daughter of an American gangster, her life has been carefully orchestrated with private education, a law degree and now a respectable law firm she co-founded with Kyra Hughes, her best friend. Life is good until her high school sweetheart walks through the door of Jackson & Hughes and decides to turn her world upside down. Cillian is not an average criminal, he was brought up in the Lucifer’s Saints MC and is now V.P. of a powerful criminal enterprise. He’s no stranger to mayhem yet only one woman has ever made him feel worthy of redemption. He’s a survivor and luck has always been on his side until he is arrested and charged with the murder of an undercover ATF agent. His complicated life becomes more than he can handle when he is forced to face the only woman who has ever turned him inside out. An unconventional love story, unfinished business between these two passionate people—physical, emotional and professional—will spark a fuse that will leave a path of death and destruction in its wake.

Excerpt
Now, I found myself in the same position with Cillian, and I couldn’t do it again. Not only because of Brianna but because I was in love with the fucking guy.
“Leave Brianna and we’ll pick up this conversation at another time. Until that happens…I don’t think I can do this.” My voice was small but firm.
He crawled over my body so he could face me. “Now you’re not playing fair. I told you I would leave her and I will. You can’t deny me—I won’t be able to do this without knowing you’re by my side.”
“And I will be when that Irish bitch is out of your life.” I gritted my teeth together. “You left me in a foreign country for her, and drop kicked my ass outta your life. Now, I’m supposed to drop everything because you give me a few empty promises after mind blowing sex? I want to believe you but we’ve got too damn much history between us, babe. I need to see some actions before I commit to anything.”
Cillian smiled wryly. “Always the fucking attorney. Fine, I’ll show you actions but you better keep up your end of the bargain.”
I turned over onto my side away from him. “Don’t worry about me. Unlike you, I don’t make promises I can’t keep.”

REVIEW:

I love a good motorcycle read & everyone knows I can't get enough of the bikers boys. I recently finished Deadly Seduction by Selene Chardou, and while the book was good, it didn't wow me.

Cillian & Gisella were a lot of fun. They had a very love hate relationship with eachother & a lot of hidden secrets between them that barely anyone knew. They were high school lovers gone wrong. 

Gisella is thrown into Cillian's daily life as the lawyer for this Motorcyle club. One his father is the president of. Gisella isn't a stranger to the life either though, her father being a prominent gangster in the US. The is almost the story of two star crossed lovers MC Style! 

You want to root for them so bad but at the same time, you see how much pain & history they have between them!!

The story line is GREAT! Loved the concept but the way the story is told and written is a whole other story. I felt like too much information is thrown at you at one time to be able to keep up with how the story is going to go.

I felt like I was introduced to so many characters as well, I couldn't keep up and I just couldn't keep them straight.

But I pushed on and read to the end and I am glad I did but I fell more in love with Sella & Cillian throughout the pages of the books. 


Looks like another MC read for me in the books. Three solid stars!
