My Review:

Carew has created a story that you simply just can’t forget. She takes erotic romance to a whole new level, combining a raw, real look at life with some rather wild moments. The intricate plot that is the backdrop for this very hot story was fantastic. It really made me stop and think. All the while, Carew took me on the ride of a lifetime.

Unforgettable characters with explosive chemistry. That’s the best way to describe the cast of this novel. We’ve come to know most of them in previous instalments of the series, but the characters really come into their own here. Carew’s character development left me feeling as if I truly knew these individuals personally. This group is the type of individuals you instinctively want to know better, while at the same time giving off the full alpha biker aura. The chemistry among the group as a whole, and especially between the two main characters of this novel, is palpable. I loved the real caring and emotion that underlies it is well.

Carew combines emotional turmoil with hotter than Hades sex in this one of a kind erotic romance. It was an unforgettable novel in and of itself, while also taking this series from great to fantastic with one fell swoop.
