I’ve waited years for her to grow up. Now it’s time. I won’t be gentle and I won’t be kind. I’m taking what is mine.
Kaylie: Wherever I went, I heard it: the sound of a purring motorcycle behind me. They never bothered me or said a word. But I knew they were there because of him. Devlin McRae, the head of the local MC. Being followed all the time like this was disconcerting. And lately, the bikes had been getting closer, less secretive, more obvious. What would I do if Devlin ever caught me?
Devlin: The first time I saw her, she was too young. I had to wait. I hated it, but I’d promised her mother I would wait for her to grow up. The sweet, little waitress from Mae’s diner was going to be mine. She just didn’t know it yet.
When my career as a dancer is sidelined due to an injury, I have no idea what to do with my life. My best friend, Kaylie, is dating the head of the Devil’s Riders, so I tag along when she hangs out at the club. That’s when I see him. The one they call the Viking. He never says a word, but his eyes burn into me. He watches out for me, even kisses me, but that’s it. The man refuses to take the next step.
I know he wants me. I just need to tip the big guy over the edge. You know what they say about the big ones, right?
I’m big and mean, and I don’t give a damn about anything but the Riders. But when the feisty redhead shows up with the Prez’s old lady, I’m told to watch her. Problem is, I can’t stop. I want my eyes and the rest of me on her. She’s a pain in the ass, but that doesn’t change biology. She’s mine for the taking, and I’m going to take her up on the offer. For good. I’m just not sure she can handle what I’m offering her.
I left behind my life to start over. My successful career as a country music singer, friends and family, everything. All to get away from my abusive, obsessive ex.
So what if I’m lonely? So what if I miss singing and sequins? I’m safe, and that’s what matters.
But the big biker with the blue eyes has other ideas. He makes me laugh and breathless all at the same time. He makes me want more. But it’s not safe. Not for either one of us.
She’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen – and that’s before I ever heard her sing. Her voice cuts through the chatter, through the noise. Straight through to the emptiness inside me.
Everyone thinks I’m happy-go-lucky, but she’s different. She sees right through me. And as much as I want her underneath me, tangled in my sheets, I want her beside me just as badly.
She needs saving. She’s afraid to let me in. But what she doesn’t know is that I need saving, too. And she’s just the woman to do it.
This is a series that I found on a whim and I’m so happy that I found these books. I believe that there are seven in total. So there will be at least one more review on the rest of the series. I went into this thinking it was going to be a quick series to listen to. I was right about the first book. It was very quick but I thought there was a lot of things that could have been expanded upon. As you go through the series it seems like the plot it a lot more flushed out and you have to pay attention more on the little details of the story. Starting in book two it goes from mainly being a two POV to toward the end a few chapter of a four book POV. While I didn’t mind it took a minute for me to realize which character the voice actors were reading for.
Troy Duran and Kendall Taylor are the two amazing voice actors for this series. I love both of them. Troy has a great balance when it comes to voicing both male and female characters. Kendall is great her range is fantastic. I could listen to her all and I have been for the last week.
Thank you all for joining me here in our little part of wonderland. Please don’t forget to feed the unicorns on your way out.
Until next time
