As the daughter of the Coast Devils MC President, Kira Tolleson was raised around dangerous men. But her father, Crest Tolleson, always took pains to keep Kira out of the violent chaos surrounding the club.
When a rival gang massacres the Coast Devils, including Kira’s father, she knows their brutality will not spare her if she is found.
In desperation Kira flees to the Arizona desert to find the one man who might help her.
His name is Orion. As leader of the Defiant MC, he is tough, explosive, unbearably sexy.
And once, he was her father’s best friend.
Confronted by the innocent young woman he’d known long ago, Orion agrees to take her in.
That is, if Kira is willing to meet his terms…
The premise of this book is a bit creepy. More than a little offensive and not due to the age difference between the hero and heroine. A young woman is on the run for her life. She goes to her father’s former best friend for protection. The man her father told her to go to if she ever needed protection. When she gets there, the father’s former best friend is cold. He agrees to protect her but demands her body as payment. Say what?
What didn’t work for me:
His payment method.
He helped raise this girl and know he wants to have sex with her. Shudder.
Her thinking back to her childhood memories and him being there as a parental figure and then her thinking about how much she wants to sleep with him. Gross!
What I did like:
The secondary characters. I want to know their stories.
If you can get past the creep factor, this wasn’t too bad.
