I fight for what’s mine.
Growing up with a junkie for a mother, Stiff’s responsibilities came young and fast, taking care of his brother with everything he had. If that meant getting his hands dirty, then so be it.
Becoming part of Vipers Creed MC gave him the family he and his brother never had, people they could count on. He vowed to protect them, even when that meant turning his back on the woman who gave him life … until Chelsea.
He knew he wasn’t good enough for her, but he didn’t care. He had to have her.
After all, Stiff always fought for what was his. No matter the price.
No one messes with my family.
Chelsea Miller’s life was simple: work, family, save for the future. Every day was the same. Her ultimate goal: live an easier life than the one she’d been dealt. That was, until her sister ended up bleeding, bruised, and fighting for her life.
Everything in Chelsea’s life changed in an instant. And the cost of protecting her family was far higher than she had bargained for.
Stiff. The Vipers Creed MC. A relentless trail of bullets and carnage. Everything she knew turned on its head.
Survival of the fittest, they say. Well, Chelsea’s a survivor. And she refuses to go down without a fight.
When two stubborn people clash in a combustion of passion and family, will conquering each other come at a price neither of them is willing to pay?

I swear these books just getting hotter and hotter! Stiff and Chelsea had known each other for years but never had any interest in one another. All that changes when Chelsea’s sister is beaten and left on the floor of the diner that Chelsea works at. This event brings the Viper’s Creed MC into the picture to help. Of course there are problems! Chelsea, who has been taught to work hard and be independent, has a really hard time allowing Stiff help. It takes a lot for her to finally start to rely on Stiff.
Going after the men who are after Chelsea’s father and hurt her sister is more than personal for Stiff. His mother’s addiction and his childhood help drive him. I really love that Stiff understood Chelsea and her need to be self-reliant. That is something that many times the guys in these MC romances don’t always get. Stiff is very alpha but not so much that he wants to stifle Chelsea which as I said is refreshing.
All in all this was a great book and I love when past characters show up because then I get the chance to catch up a little. I can’t wait for the next one to steam up my kindle because trust me the heat is almost unbearable it’s so good!
