Series: Bayonet Scars #6
Genres: MC Romance

Kings rule men. Queens rule kings.
Wyatt Strand is a hard man. He has hard features, speaks with harsh words, and has a hardened heart. Having served the Forsaken Motorcycle Club as Vice President, Wyatt is used to taking responsibility for his brothers, but when he’s handed the gavel everything changes. His brothers are now his men and the threat from the Italian mafia still looms in the distance. A president needs focus, but that’s nearly impossible when his old lady blows back into town and drops two very large bombshells on him.
Amber Wallace is a tough woman, but an even fiercer mother. She once told a lie to protect her unborn child that tore her away from the man she loves. And now, years later, she’s coming home to make amends. Wyatt’s changed, but the club hasn’t. Women are to be obedient. Unfortunately for Forsaken, Amber’s not about to let a few rules stop her from living the life she always imagined.
The Forsaken Motorcycle Club started a war with the Italian mafia and they’ve paid dearly for that choice. With a new president at the helm, the wheels are finally in motion to take down Mancuso once and for all. Even if it means taking the fight back to where it began.
Love is never more beautiful than when it consumes you.

My Review

Can two people whose past if full of mistakes and longing find their way home to one another? Wyatt made a lot of mistakes and most of them are a result of his demons that took him years to overcome. He loved Amber but allowed drugs and other forces come between them for so long he didn’t even get a chance to know his son. The same son that he believed wasn’t his. Now Amber is back telling him that she lied and his son is is but more than that she has another secret that may bring Wyatt to his knees.

For Amber Wyatt has always been the one and only man she has ever loved and wanted. However for the sake of her child she left and stayed away. Only coming back once previously when Wyatt had hit an all time low. Now she knows that her son needs his father but how much will Wyatt hate her when he finds out all of her secrets. Can they ever have any sort of happiness? On top of all of this the Forsaken MC is in the middle of a war with the mafia. A war that has cost lives on both sides and the guys will have to make a choice that could lead to the ultimate sacrifice.

I LOVE this series!! While you can read book on its own it is much better that you read them in order. There are things that happen in each book that you can get confused about. Each one takes place during this war at various points and overlap one another. I have been waiting for Wyatt to get his story because I knew that it would be mind-blowing. There are times when Wyatt is an outright jerk but as you get to know him to find yourself understanding him more. He has fought his demons and won for the most part even though he knows he isn’t perfect and that he made a lot of mistakes. Amber as well knows that she made mistakes and while she can’t go back those mistakes have made her the strong woman that she is. I can’t wait for the final book to come although with the cliffhanging ending that this one brought I know the next will bring plenty of tears.



“Ran out on me,” he says. His voice makes it sound like he’s thirsty, so gravely and rough. “Last time you ran out on me you were eight months pregnant with our fuckin’ son. Don’t like seeing you leave me.”
“We need to talk,” I say quickly before he can reach me.
“You need to quit fucking leaving me.”
“Quit giving me reason to!” That’s not totally fair. It’s not exactly his fault that the Italian guys showed up when they did. It’s not one hundred percent his fault that Rig targeted Zander. But it doesn’t exactly matter, either. Ever since Rig, I’ve been on edge and my moods are fluctuating like crazy. I don’t like these feelings. Adding Wyatt to the mix turns my crazy into straight-up insanity.
Wyatt storms toward me, grabs me around the waist and pulls me against him. He tips my face up towards his. And all his gentle turns into something else entirely in the blink of an eye.
“Knock it the fuck off!” He screams in my face, so loud, but I barely hear the words.
The ball in my throat hardens and I’m forced to swallow it. My hands shake with an anger that I don’t expect. I don’t know why I’m so mad right now, but I am. Nervous, sure. Anxious, yeah. But mad? That one confuses me. I don’t dwell on it though, because the frustration becomes too much to swallow. I push him off me, angry and annoyed. I suck in an unsteady breath as we stare each other down. He huffs. My eyes fall to his lips and they stay there. It’s magnetic—the pull his lips have over me. Every time I look at them, I’m either desperate to touch them or I remember every vile word that he’s ever said to me. If I’m being honest with myself, even then, in those moments of remembrance, I still want them on me. Nothing ever changes that. I hate admitting that, even to myself, though.
I pull my gaze from his lips to find his eyes are on my mouth now. His tongue pokes out, drags over his rough lips. I could fall into this. I could let this happen so easily, but then we’ll end up right back where we started.
“You can’t kiss me. You’re going to hate me soon, so please don’t kiss me.”
