Spike is a biker and a widower. He lost his wife and unborn child when he got involved in some shady business dealings. This loss devastated him and then when his best friend, Ciara came out publically against him, it was even worse. He has his own MC (motorcycle club) and continuously tries to put the past behind him.

Ciara is Spike’s former sister-in-law. She has loved him for as long as she can remember. She even loved him when she came out publically against him. She has been trying to make it up to him ever since.

This book pulled at me emotionally a lot. You have Spike’s guilt for the loss of his wife and unborn child, his guilt for blaming Cade, his friend, and his abhorrent treatment of Ciara. What Ciara did, she did out of pain, what he did was unforgivable, almost. There was alot of clearing the past here. I mean you meet these two people in the first book of the series but you don’t know the whole story until now. I liked Spike a little in book one but I loved Ciara. Her life was a life of never being good enough for her parents or her sister. Their treatment of her was abusive emotionally in my opinion. You also have Spike’s need for revenge against the man who killed his pregnant wife. And most importantly, the story of two very damaged people, who loved each other all along, learning the value of self responsibility and forgiveness.

If you want a hot and I mean hot book, read this book. You need to read the first one too. In this book though, you get a group of hot bikers, a heroine who likes to be a little bad and hero with spikes pierced up his you know what that he likes women to take out with their teeth. Anne, I know you want to know about these spikes.

Erin has been solving her druggie sister’s problems for a while. Now her sister’s missing and Ivan may be the only one who can help her. But Ivan’s rumored to be a part of the Russian mob. Will Erin end up making a deal with the devil?
I struggled with this read a lot. I understand that Erin loved her sister more than anything else in the world. I’m just not sure that I can believe she would jump into a sexual relationship so quickly with such a shady character, especially since it wasn’t part of a deal to find her sister. Ivan was one of those heroes who is rumored to have been involved in anything and everything secretive and dirty. And I know that it is a personal preference of mine, but I have trouble falling for a hero who is/was a mob boss and drug dealer.
Personal preferences aside, I liked the writing. It was sharp and the plot moved quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate to read more by Roxie Rivera, but probably not more of this series.
How about you? Is there such a thing a too bad of a bad boy?
