Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.
Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can’t take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.
Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He’s sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he’s also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he’s forbidden to be her lover.
Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn’t allowed on the back of his bike —or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she’s done hearing the word “no” and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn’t dare cross.
Love is never more tempting than when it’s forbidden.
I’m a sucker for a good motorcycle club erotic romance so when this one was offered free I couldn’t resist!
This story is basically Motorcycle Club meets the Mafia. It’s dark and edgy and I totally loved it.
Alex is the mafia princess with a twin brother and she trusted the wrong person and ends up being rescued from the clutches of the Mafia boys that wants her dead. She is taken away by a motorcycle gang cross-country to California to be kept safe by them and her Aunt, who is the wife of the President of the club. In reality, the Aunt is really her mother. (long story)
Ryan, the man she becomes attracted to could sometimes be a decent guy or a real a**hole and since he was trying to get Alex to hate him he treated her horribly, physically and mentally, and needed an a** kicking.
Their relationship finally becomes as important to Ryan as it is to Alex and when Alex’s father sends henchman to California to kill her and those who stole her away, Ryan finally acts like a man and helps his club brothers take care of business.
The story ends with a lot left to the imagination but I’m sure it will be covered in the second book in the series, Thrash. Although it also is a standalone book about another couple, I’m fairly certain it will tie up the ends from the first book..
I loved the book because for an erotic romance it had it all. Sex, dirty talk, more sex, romance and of course handsome sexy guys on motorcycles.
