For the first time in my life I know what it’s like to be completely and truly adored by a man who loves me for exactly who I am, a high functioning autistic with more personality quirks than there are stars in the Texas Hill Country night sky.

Some people think my boyfriend, Smoke, is a total biker psycho, a natural born killer who will destroy anyone who threatens what he considers his. They wouldn’t be wrong, but he’s so much more than that. He’s my dark salvation, my beloved fallen angel who is trying with all of his wicked heart to save me from what seems like an entire world bent on either killing me or a fate worse than death.

We’re headed to the Denver, Colorado chapter of the Iron Horse MC, chasing after my narcissistic, junkie mother who decided to steal from some very bad men leaving her two daughters behind to pay the price for her betrayal. My twin sister, Sarah, old lady to the Iron Horse MC president, is looking for my mother as well, but Sarah’s gone rogue and has no one to guard her back which worries me deeply. To further complicate matters, there are traitors in the Iron Horse MC who are working with my mother, not only helping her to escape but also informing my enemies of my every move.

The odds are stacked against me, but I will do whatever is necessary to protect those I love, and with Smoke at my side, I just might make it out of this mess alive.

Val’s Review

So it’s been irritating me that I haven’t really reviewedreviewed the last few books I’ve read, including this entire smutastic fuck fest of an MC/BDSM/survivalist/religious cult shit show of awesome sauce series.

Say THAT^^^ five times fast.

I have been saying to myself, “Self, you are SOOOOO far behind!”


And then I realized…


Seriously though, apparently I felt all “behind the collegiate curve” there for a minute and then also realized…


And has been – for ME – for like…well, a really long fucking time.


Moving on, I realized “oh well.”

Sometimes you just don’t feel like reviewing, right?

But I didn’t want to leave this series with nothing, because I SERIOUSLY enjoyed it.

So here is my verbal diarrhea of a review for books one through four.

I apologize for the lame beforehand.



I am trying to think of a way to explain this series.

It was centered around an MC Club and, while I wouldn’t call this the “grittiest” MC series I’ve ever read, it was also no Kristen Ashley rainbows and glitter-ridden Chaos either – as much as I lurve that.

So there’s that.

There was also some BDSM element to all the books – both main H characters are dominant-esque; however, I would definitely classify this as BDSM-lite.

There was also the whole added element of the two h’s of the series being twins.

With one being a high-functioning autistic.


Ooooooo, curve ball #1.

Add to that the element was their super crazy weird upbringing – mom is a con artist and dad is a crazy former Special Forces turned uber “off the grid” survivalist – however, they were raised separate as mom jacked twin one and when on the lamb, leaving twin two with pop.


Annnnd, curve ball #2.

Tangent: Actually, that last one is a rise ball. And that’s Jenny Finch, for those interested. She was a pitcher for the USA team. And I used to play against her back in the good old club softball days…Pretty sure I saw this pitch fly by me…followed shortly by the umpire yelling “strike,” but whatevs!

Oh, and here’s where I should probably mention that the first one wasn’t a curve either. It was actually a drop pitch. But curve ball sounds WAAAAAAY better.

And like my Granny always said: “Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.”

AnyShamelessNameDrop, back to the book.

Confused yet?




Needless to say, this series had all the ingredients to be a shit show of epic proportions.

And, quite frankly, it is and will be a total shit show for some.

Personally though?

It just worked for me and I loved the series more and more the further I got into it.

I loved all the main characters.

And, most importantly?

I truly felt the bone deep connection between both leading couples – an element that, when it clicks for me, can make me overlook a LOT of other things that might drive me crazy.

Seriously, a couple’s connection and the draw I feel between them is perhaps the most IMPORTANT element of ANY book for me.

Well, this series had it for me in spades.

And, after all, that’s why we read romance, right?


I started book one of this series yesterday afternoon…and was up all night devouring the rest of the series. So here we are after the completion of book 4.

And book 5 can’t come out soon enough.
