My Rating: 2.5 stars

Blurb:After losing her job, saying goodbye to a lifelong dream and having an all-around cruddy year, Bronte Pierce needs a break. A job at Fast & Fury might be just the thing to reset her life, even though she knows nothing about custom motorcycles. But taking a job isn’t the same as keeping it, and her fresh start quickly turns into a fresh nightmare.

Starting with her boss. Crow is hardheaded, stubborn and brutally honest. He may be easy on the eyes, but he runs with an MC and he’s anything but friendly to Bronte. She suspects he has a softer side—just not for her.

Her whole life, Bronte has known that the only person she can truly count on to save the day is herself. But when a single murder turns into a conspiracy and the threat to her life is more than she can handle alone, it’s Crow who comes through—and her newfound family might just become her greatest strength.

My Review:

This book is the beginning of a spin off from the author’s Knights of Fury series. The Knights are still main characters and there is a lot of crossover with the original so it’s best to read the Knights series first. I’m not sure why the author felt the need to start a new series as it is an exact continuation with the same characters.

I loved the first series but this book didn’t live up to it’s predecessors standards. It felt boring and over long in comparison and the love interest s didn’t have the same spark. If I hadn’t read the others this book would have impressed me but I know the author can do better.

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. *Blurb and cover image via Goodreads.
