In the final full novel of the series tells the story of Digger Banks, traitor to the Death Dwellers MC. His brother and club enforcer, Mortician, is charged with the task of putting him to ground. Will both brothers survive and can the Death Dwellers withstand another betrayal and tragedy?
I’m just…blown away.
This is the final full length novel in the series that has had me enraptured. It’s everything you could want in an MC romance. Seriously, you get it all here. I was not looking forward to this one at all. I never connected with Digger as a character and what you did know was that he was a douche. Since Kathryn Kelly is my favorite author, I knew I’d read it. I love everything she writes. I got way more than I expected from this book.
Marcus “Digger” Banks is a man on the run from his MC. He knows he’s on borrowed time. You don’t betray Christopher “Outlaw” Caldwell and live to tell about it. Don’t hate Digger right away because all is not what it seems with him. His betrayal is subjective. We all do what we have to do to protect those we love. Even dancing with the Devil. Digger’s dad is the biggest piece of shit. He’s a murder, a rapist, a human trafficker, an apparent drug lord and wait for it…a religious zealot. He has his own church believe it or not. He raised his sons horrifically. Mental and physical abuse were the status quo. Digger disappeared from his MC to protect his brother, Lucas or Mortician. He loves his big brother.
Bunny is a former stripper and old lady of one of the Death Dweller MC members. Her old man was a real shit. Abusive and dangerous. When he meets his well deserved end, Bunny is kidnapped by Digger and forced to go on the run with him. She knows about Digger and his betrayal. Despite her finding him attractive, he scares her to death. As they run from Digger’s dad and Christopher Caldwell, Bunny realizes that Digger isn’t the man she’s heard about. There’s more to him than that.
This book truly blew me away. I felt like a pinball in a pinball machine. Back and forth. Shitty situation to shitty situation. Suspense overload. A great deal of sadness too. Best of this author’s work, hands down. She even made me like Christopher a small bit and I hate Christopher! He was still a douche but not quite as bad as normal. Now, I have to address this because I’m one of the 5 people who read the series that love Kendall. I know she’s a hot ass mess and she’s at the top of her game of hot mess in this book. I found myself shaking my head at her a lot. I know she battles depression and this story gives you a little more look at what that does to her. Honestly, I would be depressed if I was married to ball-less Johnnie too.
For fans of this series, you will love this installment but be saddened as the series comes to an end. I will miss the stories, the characters, the suspense, the filthy mouths and the hot sex scenes. Most of all, I will miss my precious friend writing about the boys of the Death Dweller MC and the women that brought them to their knees. If you haven’t read it and love MC romance, you MUST read this series. You won’t be one bit sorry.
