Laid off factory worker.
Drug runner for the Heaven Hill Motorcycle Club.
When Denise Cunningham is served with foreclosure papers on her birthday it’s the last straw in a long line of bad luck. Sitting and crying about things has never been how she solved her problems, but this time she decides to do just that. A phone call interrupts her pity party and changes the course of her life forever.
Grease monkey mechanic.
Vice President of the Heaven Hill Motorcycle Club.
William Walker Jr., known as Liam to his club, needs a new recruit that is just naïve enough and desperate enough to do what he asks without question. When Denise Cunningham lands in his lap, he decides to hire her – not because he wants to, because he has to.
Neither are comfortable in their new roles, but he needs help and she can’t stand to lose anything else.
As bullets fly and a local Bowling Green, KY reporter works to bring the club down, Liam and Denise find themselves getting closer to one another. When the stakes get high and outside forces try to keep them away from each other, they have to decide if they really are meant to be.
Denise is a single mother of twin 13 year olds. Recently laid off and in financial ruin, she picks up a shift at work for a coworker. She had no idea what that would lead to. Now she’s in over her head. She’s moving drugs to predetermined locations for the local MC. She don’t want to but apparently desperate times call for desperate measures. She has to keep a roof over their heads and food in their mouths, so she does what’s asked of her.
Liam is the VP of the local MC and not too bad of a guy. He’s good looking, built and seems to have somewhat of a conscience. He never wanted to involve Denise in club business but his dad, the President of the MC decided that she had to help. He sees her desperation but also her inner strength and it calls to him. The need to protect beats inside him. When Denise is threatened, he realizes that his need to protect her and hers is something more than he originally thought.
This is a decent start to a new MC series for me. It’s a little lighter than I like but again it was decent. The characters were well done, the suspense was a little abrupt with its ending but the sex was descriptive but there wasn’t near enough of it. To hang with the heavy hitters of MC, I think the author needs to step up her game a little bit more.
