He is shadowed by regret laced in broken memories.
Dark sins of the past have a way of taking hold of your heart and never letting go.
Paisley Asher is the average woman trying to get by in life. Happy and safe in her bubble of ease, she is not prepared to take on the black pit that is one man’s heart.
Trevor ‘Coal’ Blake has a past covered in black. Tainted. He is a dark soul.
In the moment, it is easy to lose sight of what is going on. Looking back, however, little cues were misread … or were they? He lives with more questions than answers.
Chance encounters bring these two together. Is she the angel to pull him from the depths of his personal hell, or is he destined to remain alone and as black as coal?
Coal is the third book in the Regulators MC series and while you can read it as a standalone I would suggest reading the other books first so you know some of the other characters and history. This review is a hard one to write and rate. On one hand I liked the different direction Ms. Camaron & Ms. Lane took the main characters and when I say opposites attract I mean just that but on the other hand I also think it was a bit overboard at times, mainly with Paisley or Pixie as Coal calls her character. I don’t know if this one worked totally for me or not, I liked it, I liked the suspense and action in the story even if at times it was upsetting but I don’t know if everything worked as well as it could have.
A single moment in time, one action, inaction, words said or left unsaid all have consequences, it is what you do with your life after this is what counts. It makes you who you are but you don’t always have to let it define you. Coal allowed it to change him, to harden him. He thinks he no longer has a good side to him, and I hated that he feels that way but when you read why your heart not only breaks but you want to cut a bitch at the same time. Paisley also has gone through her own pains and it changes her in different ways. In extreme ways, now I have friends who are all about clean eating and chakras and stuff and I believe in Karma big time but she is the full extreme when it comes to these things and after a while I honestly wanted to shove a hamburger down her throat and make her eat it. I’m sorry but that’s how I felt, sigh I may be going a bit overboard but besides that part of her I did like Paisley, or as Coal calls her his Pixie.
While there are parts of Coal that worked for me and parts that didn’t I did enjoy this one overall, just as not as much as I originally hoped but I do plan on continuing with the series.
