Book Review HeaderI love this series and have since the very first book! Smoke and Gidget were childhood friends then high school sweethearts and both were brought up in the Grim Bastards. They had plans to marry after graduation and everything worked out even had a way for Gidget to go to school. However her aunt said she would pay for it if Gidget went to school in Kentucky which she didn’t want to do. However after Smoke pushes Gidget away she takes her aunt up on her offer and leaves in an effort to start a new life without the boy she loved.

Fast forward and Gidget is back in Trenton with her son Parker. Her father,Stone, and brother are missing but since Stone was a traitor to the Grim Bastards Gidget figures the pair met with an untimely end. Smoke has become the VP of the club and when he finds Gidget beaten hiding in a closet with her son he vows that this time he won’t let her go.

Sounds interesting right?  This is the best kind of second chance romance because you get all the MC drama along with it. IT will grip you from the first page and keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last word. Smoke and Gidget are so perfect together and they are SMOKING HOT!
Not to mention that Smoke is so wonderful with Parker. This is a must read!!





Book Excerpt Header

We are just stepping into the yard when my phone rings. I pick up my phone and see Smoke’s name on the screen. My anger at Round’s confession comes back full force as I put it to my ear.

“Hello,” I say, unable to hide my fury.

“What the hell is going on, Gidget? What’s the matter? Are you and Parker okay?” he asks, his voice hard.

He throws the questions at me so quick, it almost makes my head spin. “Nothing’s wrong. Why do you ask?”

“Don’t fucking lie to me, Gidget. Hack just called and said Dad was walking you and Parker out of the clubhouse.”

My anger retreats when I realize he was worried about us. Richard never worried about us, never even asked how our day went. Smoke, on the other hand, is checking in from the road. As irritating as it is, it’s always sweet as hell.

Pulling in a deep breath, I explain what we’re doing. He asks a million questions, making sure Parker and I have everything we need. Each thing he says has my heart warming toward him. I have to remind myself that he’s the one who broke it all those years ago. Still, watching my son play with Round, I realize he did me a favor. Maybe I’ll do him a favor and forgive him when he gets back, but not before we have a long talk.

“Fine, don’t stay out there too long. I’ll give you ten minutes to get your ass back in bed. If not, I’ll be calling my dad to make sure you get there,” he’s warns, ending our conversation without even a goodbye.  

Before I even put it away, it’s ringing again. I see Smoke’s name again and bring it back to my ear. “Hello.”

“Tell Dad there’re some balls around back in the shed. He can pull them out for Parker.” With that, he hangs up, not bothering to say goodbye again.  

For some reason, my lips are tipping up as I slide my phone into my pocket.
