Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy---until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa's pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.
Climb on and hold tight . . .
In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he's the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa's acting, it's clear she's falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker's secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa---or ride away forever . . .
Typical biker gang club.
You're my woman, I'm your man... let's ride!!
But then again, it's not. This club is all about family,support and brotherhood. There's no skanks, whores, women being paraded around. There's no murders, bar fights or drugs.
There are of course problems and danger, ok, and there was a fight and actually there was a murder... but that's not my point!
The point is, these bikers are a family. They love one another. They love their children, their women and their brothers. That part I absolutely loved!!
Carson's early upbringing and the beginning of the book was just devastating! I cringed and I got teary eyed. I was so intrigued and was just devouring this!
Later on things got a little confusing for me. There's a lot of names, people and goings on and if you're not familiar with the lingo or characters, you might get a tad lost.
Ok, I got a tad lost!
Then comes Carissa. She brought silliness and goofiness to this rough and tough bearded biker that Carson turned out to be!
And let me say that I just absolutely loved Carson. Everything about him!
BUT, he was all mysterious and tight lipped and damned if one smile from a chick didn't turn him into Betty Crocker! That might not be the best analogy, but to me he seemed to change over night. It was all well and good, but just a little odd.
Regardless of all that, I did enjoy it and will be reading the next one!
