BLOOD WILL BE SHED...
The ghosts of Donovan "Blade" Brookes' life are closing in on him.
Hardened by an abusive childhood and haunted by the murder of his fiancé, Blade struggles against the dark forces threatening to consume him. When he helps Layla Reed in her hour of need, he has no idea she will be the light to his darkness. As they spend more time together, he is powerless to fight his desire for her. Powerless to fight his need for her. However, as his feelings deepen, he pushes her away, reluctant to drag her into his world. With enemies coming at him from all directions, Storm MC needing his help to fight off a rival, and his father still causing him grief, Blade needs the love of a good woman now more than ever. Can Layla push Blade to the edge and get him to admit to both of them what he wants? Or will the darkness pull him under once and for all?
I first fell for this author when I read her novella as part of the Born to Ride anthology. I hadn't really read MC books, so this world was new to me. I can tell you, I am HOOKED. This series focuses on the Storm MC located in Australia, but the author does a good job bringing the reader up to speed on things that are typically "Australian." There is violence in this club but the books are not as graphic as some other MC books.
This book is about Blade, half brother to Madison and Scott and son of the current President of the Storm MC. He is not in the MC world but operates his business in a similar fashion when it is warranted. Blade runs a legit construction business and is always trying to protect innocents. His relationship with his father has always been messed up, abusive, loveless. Blade and Scott have been working together and trying to build some type of relationship. Blade does not do relationships of any kind in order to protect his heart. Starting the bridge with his half siblings opens him up to the possibility of more. He just needs the right woman to help him toward the light. Layla Reed is just that person. Layla has a messed up family dynamic as well, but through it all she has become a very independent and fierce heroine. She matches Blade toe to toe and in doing so, wins his heart.
Both Blade and Layla were looking for the other half of their souls. When they get together, the sexual tension and chemistry is off the chart. Blade is bossy and Layla loves it!
"When I'm in the middle of fucking you with my mouth, you don't interrupt, do you understand?"
It was great to catch up on all of the MC guys from the previous books in the series. If this is new to you, start with "STORM" and get introduced to the whole club. Each book is packed with hot alpha males and wonderful ladies to keep them in line. I look forward to reading the rest of the series!
