Genres: MC Romance
SHE’S HEARTBROKEN. HE’S A HEART-BREAKER.
Elle Phillips’s relationship with the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is strained, much like the relationship she had with her father, a Forsaken brother, before he died. The only piece of Forsaken that Elle wants to hold onto is their sergeant-at-arms and her former lover, Sterling “Bloody Knuckles” Grady. Unfortunately, Grady’s moved on and he doesn’t seem to be coming back. With her heart hurting over one man who’s died and another who’s practically dead to her, Elle throws herself into her work as a private investigator and tries to keep a low profile where the club’s concerned. But when a case comes along that she can’t refuse, she finds herself embroiled in club business in a way that leaves her questioning everything she thought she knew about Forsaken.
Diesel knows that keeping tabs on Elle Phillips is going to bring him trouble. He already loves her even though he barely knows her, but when Grady asks Diesel to keep her safe, he can’t say no. His patience has run out and he’s going to do anything to get Elle to realize he’s the man she’s been craving— even going behind the club’s back to help her solve a case she shouldn’t be working.
I will honestly say that I didn’t like Elle when I first met her in Grady’s story. I don’t know there was just something about her however after read her story I like her a little better. Although there are times when she acts more like a spoiled child than an adult. She was in love with Grady for a long time or so she thought but then Grady found his true love and moved on. Elle and Grady had a friends with benefits sort of relationship before however he never gave any indication that it was more.
Then comes Diesel who has been told by Grady to keep an eye on Elle. After all she is a fallen Forsaken brother’s daughter which makes her family and Forsaken takes care of their own. Diesel knows that Elle is the one he wants and has been patiently waiting for her. Elle is asked to search for a Forsaken brother that is in hiding and when he takes her nephew Diesel puts Elle first and heads out to help her. Although what he learns along the way is a bit shocking.
JC Emery did a great job of tying up loose ends with Elle as well as giving Diesel a love interest. Not to mention setting the next book up perfectly. I fell in love with the Forsaken MC from the very first book and continue to do so with each one. In fact my sister is super angry that I actually got to read this one early.
