Back Cover Blurb:

As a teen, Dawn ran from a life on the streets straight into the arms of Jimmy “Mad Dog” Sanchez, a biker who promised to be her knight in shining armor. But his love was just another cage. Years later, Dawn’s former life still has its hooks in her and she’ll do whatever it takes to break free. When Cade “Ryder” O’Connor, a member of a rival club, makes her an offer, Dawn finds herself in a different, hotter kind of trouble with one irresistible Sinner…

Cade is an outlaw biker with allegiance to one thing and one thing only: The Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club. But when it comes to the stunningly sexy, fiercely independent Dawn Delgado, Cade finds himself…hungrier for more. Trouble is on Dawn’s heels and he wants to be the answer to her prayers, whether she wants him to be or not. What can’t be denied is the red-hot attraction between them. However, as they fall deeper, the danger rises and Cade may have to sacrifice it all…

My Review:

This fast paced, emotionally infused novel held me captive from the first page to the last. Castille returns to the world of the Sinners MC with a vengeance, keeping readers hooked throughout. The plot encompassed so many different aspects of life. From abuse to acceptance, life to death, Castille brings it all to play. The dangerous lives these characters lead is just as apparent and the love between them.

Castille makes the world of outlaw MCs understandable to the masses. She goes well beyond the pop culture surrounding them, getting into what it means to be part of the tribe. She allows readers to relate to her characters on many levels, while at the same time showing how removed they are from the typical reality of the every day.

Dawn and Cade were a fantastic couple to bring this novel to life. Dawn’s strength, even after everything she’s suffered was inspiring. She was also able to rise above it and become who she was meant to be, even if it meant going against what others believe. Cade’s strength and tenderness made him the perfect alpha male. Seeing his inner struggle really allowed you to see the whole picture. I also loved the fact that together, they made each other stronger, while still remaining their own person.

This is not a book you can read a chapter or two at a time. Once you start reading, hours will go by before you look up from the pages again. This was an absolutely unforgettable addition to the Sinner’s Tribe series. It is a complete story in and of itself, but also leaves me dying to get back into the world & read the next novel in the series (or re-read this one a few dozen times).
