The black-leather-clad biker who just roared up on his Harley doesn’t resemble any single father Emily Clark has ever known. But as she watches “Reb” bonding with his son, Emily realizes there’s a lot more to this bad boy than his alpha-male attitude or his sinful good looks. And when Reb takes an interest in her, there’s no way she can resist his surprisingly tender touch. The one thing Emily won’t give up is her hard-won independence.
As president of the True Brothers MC, Reb owes a sacred debt of loyalty to the club, but his first priority is making sure that his son grows up right. Pursuing an unexpected affair with Emily is a close second. Then a violent stalker threatens her life, and this unconventional guardian angel really turns up the heat. Nobody messes with Reb, or anyone under his protection. Trouble is, how’s he supposed to defend Emily when she insists on going it alone? He’s willing to put his life on the line for her. Now, maybe, he needs to open his heart.
I enjoyed the 1st book in the series, and I admit I was a little surprised the 2nd was Reb's...I kind of thought we would have to wait a little longer to see how everything worked out with him, and with the situation you catch a glimpse of at the end of the 1st book.
Reb and Emily. Oh goodness, was that fun. She is, as I think most of us would be, just a little reluctant to get involved with the president of the MC, even if a friend of hers is already involved, and marrying one of the members of the same club. I love how genuine this seems, how truthful her struggle with her feelings about Reb, how he seems violent one minute and a caring father the next, are so conflicted. How she feels both safe and trapped at the same time, about how Reb's treatment and expectations of her seem like both more than she can handle and comforting.
I loved that the ending didn't rush things, that Reb and Emily's story didn't get pushed through to the complete HEA that, really, neither of them were totally ready for. The pacing, characters and story arc of this were really strong, it was believable...and what I love about the MC books is they take me to a life in which I can't even see myself. What I loved about this one is that I actually could see myself choosing that life for someone like Reb.
I recommend this book.
