When Roxy Doucette meets the all too handsome, Knox Harrington, sparks fly. He’s the new assistant to the club’s attorney. However, Christopher “Outlaw” Caldwell, the club’s president, is suspicious of Knox’s true reasons for being there. Something about Knox just rubs Outlaw the wrong way, therefore, he asks Roxy to get Knox into bed for some “pillow talk”. At first, she’s outraged at Outlaw’s proposal, but accepts that he might be right and the club could be in jeopardy. She agrees to “date” Knox and the war of wills begin.
Born in wealth and privilege, Knox Harrington is a former police officer who has little regard for biker clubs. In particular, the Death Dwellers, and ESPECIALLY the president. Now a private investigator, Knox is working on behalf of his uncle to bring Outlaw and the Dwellers down. The club members’ nefarious deeds warrant their destruction. Knox intends to achieve that by any means possible.
When he meets the beautiful, formidable Roxy, there’s instant attraction between them. However, he sees an opportunity to use her to ferret information about the club. He’s over-the-top-arrogant, believing the ignorance and stupidity of Outlaw will ultimately be the club’s downfall. Knox hasn’t a clue that Roxy is on to him. She’s also attracted to him.
Aside from the safety of the club, Roxy’s in it for the benefits. She has a new lease on life after surviving cancer. Besides Knox’s low-down behavior, she’s a 44-year-old, mother of four children and Knox is ten years younger than she is. However, she can’t resist the challenge when Knox lets it be known that he’s the sharpest tool in the shed. He sure the hell is a tool. The foolish kind and Roxy is determined to teach him a lesson or two.
Let the games begin.

Review

I enjoyed this novel like I always enjoy a Kathryn Kelly penned novel. All the characters that I love or love to hate were present and accounted for. I’ve loved Roxy since she steamrolled into the series. She seemed to bring balance to the club and the clubhouse. The men respected her and the women needed her. None more so than Kendall, whose need for a mother/friend never fails to be heart wrenching to read about.

My only complaint is that I never liked Knox or felt any connection between he and Roxy. It never felt natural and it never rang true. I was glad Roxy got an HEA, I just didn’t care for who he was. Other than that, I loved it. It had suspense, humor and hot sex. I’m so sad that this series appears to be coming to an end. It was a great series to lose yourself in. Rumor has it, maybe she’ll write about the kids of the MC. If she does, I’m so there. Until then then, a piece of my heart lies in Hortensia.
