With a Heart
Forged in Steele
Boomer Steele is big. He’s bad. He’s the Retribution MC pres. He’s been dealt the worst hand imaginable and bears the scars inside and out. Not that anyone knows it. He’s watched his younger brother and sister hook up and hitch up with the loves of their lives, and now
he’s the last Steele standing alone. Maybe he should keep it that way.
Then one feisty honey makes him feel, gets in his grill, pisses him off.
She goes by the name of Rayce. And that’s exactly what she does on her motocross bike when she’s not busy getting her hands dirty with her fellow grease monkeys as the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage. She’s into fixing bikes, racing hers, and making Boomer’s life a living hell just for the fun of it. Oh, and she hates being treated like a girl.
That’s an understatement where these two are concerned. Yet when Rayce needs a place to live, and Boomer offers her a room in his house, their unquenchable attraction wins out over antagonism. Sometimes. Rayce’s crappy upbringing makes her think love is for stupid fools asking for heartbreak. She’s not willing to go there for any man.
Not even Boomer Steele.
The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
Note to readers: this book addresses the issue of domestic abuse.

Oh my goodness I have been waiting for Boomer to get his story for a while now. I knew, just knew that he would end up being my favorite! Boomer is not only the President of Retribution MC and a Steele brother he is also BIG in every possible way (yep that way too!!;) ) On top of all of that he has striking blue eyes, bulging muscles and tattoos. He’s my new book boyfriend! We actually already met Boomer & Rayce in a previous Retribution MC story and is was clear that Boomer had a thing for her.
Rayce is in contrast to Boomer in that she is small yet like him she has a personality that is bigger than life. She is full of sass and doesn’t hold back. In fact it isn’t until Boomer takes her home and discovers her secrets that you realize just how much she uses her sass as a cover. She is the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage where she the men respect her and appreciate her skills. All of the guys at the garage think of her a sister and are very protective of her. That is all of the guys except for Boomer who has all sorts of filthy thoughts when he sees her covered in grease bent over a car. I’m gonna be honest and say I couldn’t blame him. I mean if I saw him bent over a car there would be all sorts of filthy thoughts running through my head so why shouldn’t guys do the same thing about chics.
We get the story from Boomer’s POV which I loved. I enjoyed knowing what he was thinking especially since he has felt so responsible for the things that happened the night of his parent’s deaths. Boomer is full of responsibility and it shows. He’s the kind of man that any woman would want because you know that he would not only take care of you but would protect you with his life. Once again Rie Warren has not only provided the ultimate fantasy man but she has thrown in plenty of steamy sex, family love, and growth for a couple that are a little broken.
The Tattooed Moose was no more than a noisy, loud, crowded wood shack with a tiny front porch just on the wrong side of the tracks in downtown Chucktown.
Maybe not. But the food was un-freakin’-believable.
It was a little quieter on the porch than in the bar, so I snagged the first empty table and got Rayce settled in her seat before I moved mine right next to her. Large outdoor heaters spaced between the tables fought off the January chill.
“This okay?” I reached for her hand and rubbed across her knuckles, smiling when I noticed the engine oil she hadn’t quite managed to scrub off.
“Is there beer and food?”
“Some of the best of both, I guaran-damn-tee it.”
“Then it’s okay by me.” Pulling my hand up to her face, she gently licked and kissed the center of my palm.
I kid you fucking not, the feel of her lips made my cock go full throttle just like that.
This softer side of Rayce was something else.
The seductive side?
Goddamn hypnotic and horny as hell.
I returned the favor of turning her on by licking and nuzzling her neck while we waited for our orders. I was bound and determined to give her that orgasm tonight. Hopefully in my bed, but I could work it out in the truck, or hell, even in the nearest deserted alley.
Rayce moaned under her breath when I bit down on her earlobe, and I decided that would do for now.
She looked at me with wide, dazed, dazzling eyes. She hadn’t even noticed the beers had arrived.
Job well done on my part.
I pecked her on the lips then lifted my glass.
She broke out of the sex-spell and muttered a low string of words I didn’t quite catch but went along the lines of evil man . . . all worked up . . . sits there smirking.
Then she clinked my glass with a, “Bottoms up.”
“We can get to that later too, if you want.” I took a glug of beer.
She choked on hers, hitting me on the shoulder.
After she managed a swallow without spewing beer across the table, she turned to me. “How can you just say stuff like that?”
“Because I’ve been thinking about it?” I shrugged.
“But I haven’t—” She shook her head and lifted her drink again.
I scooted closer and whispered in her ear, “Haven’t had a hard cock inside your perfect ripe ass?”
She shivered as my lips caressed her earlobe, and she swallowed hard.
“I’ll take that as a no.” Laying my palm on her thigh, I skimmed up it until I butted the center seam of her jeans. “Some women think it’s really hot, especially with the piercings. Really gets ’em going.”
Her nose skimmed my cheek as she turned her head. Her lips nearly collided with mine. “And just how many women have you done it with?”
“Well, that doesn’t matter, princess, because none of them mattered.” That may have sounded crass but it was true. I’d had my fair share of fucks—none of them lasted.
My lips brushed hers. “But you matter, make no mistake about it. It’s just a thought if you wanna give it a shot. I’d make sure you like is so much you come crawling back for more.” Sitting back, I crossed my arms over my chest, my big thighs spread in obvious invitation.
All for her and only her.
She stared at me, her cheeks growing more and more flushed until, groaning, she buried her head in her arms.
I gave a rough low laugh, reaching over to caress the back of her neck and the tiny buttercup tat.
She peeked out at me. “You’re a very naughty man.”
“Your naughty man.” I kissed her cheek and she sat up with a huff.
