This was really a good read and just the way an MC book should be! It was my first read from this author and she did not disappoint!
Cleo and Paxton “Torch” Hill were married young before Torch went into the service. When Torch returns, he is a changed man with demons that are too much to endure. Torch hurts Cleo in the worst possible way and ends up leaving her as if she never existed.
Fast forward to 11 years later, Cleo is living her life, but not really. She is a shell of a woman and still heartbroken. She has made two great friends Lisandro and Theo who will do anything for her and I loved the friendship that these three had. Torch is a member of the Notorious Devils MC and when trouble comes knocking at their door, he realizes that Cleo may be in danger and decides to heal old wounds and protect Cleo at the same time. Torch realizes that Cleo is not the gullible teenager she was back then and also realizes that he left a good woman behind instead of dealing with his demons together with Cleo as a couple should.
With trouble knocking and Cleo’s reluctance to give Torch another chance, Torch makes it his mission to make Cleo his once and for all whether she likes it or not. But will Cleo accept the biker life Torch is offering or will she be stuck in the past always thinking that he will leave her again the way he did so many years ago??
This was really good read and I didn’t realize it was the 5th in the series, but this can be read as a standalone. I’m really looking forward to Genny and Sloane’s story which I know will be just as good this one!
