Dove is sensitive, and tough at the same time. It’s a combination that made it impossible not to love her. Raised by a father who was a lifer in the service she’s learned to take care of herself and stay strong. But, she’s also been incredibly sheltered. It adds a good bit of complexity, which I love in a heroine.The men she falls for are equally layered. John Draven, may be the Vice President of a motorcycle club, but he’s got a soft spot for women and a sense of justice that overshadowed his rough lifestyle. The minute Dove latches onto his hand after her ordeal and begs him not to leave her, his commitment begins. He cares for her with a sweet ferocity that made my lady parts quiver. Is there anything sexier than a man who helps a woman heal, respects her boundaries, and doesn’t ask for more until she’s ready? Cade is an honorable man trapped by his duty. An undercover FBI agent in bed with the Red Wolves M.C. to bring down a ring of flesh peddlers, he walks a very careful line. Unable to share the truth about a situation Draven despises him for he struggles to keep their relationship functional, not only for his case, but for the sake of the vulnerable woman they’ve both laid claim to.
I loved the different aspects going on in this story. The mystery kept me guessing, and the pace was perfect. Each scene moved the story further ahead, and laid a new breadcrumb. In the end, the best part about the twist was the realization. Ms. Carter left hints about what was to come. I’d like to go into more detail, but I don’t want to ruin the mystery. Who could resist one alpha male with a soft spot for his woman, let alone two? Not this girl.
