SHE'S HOLDING ON TIGHT.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...
WILL HE GIVE HER THE RIDE OF HER LIFE?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...in
Dawn is a mother of two children and ex-wife of Mad Dog – a member of the Devil’s Brethren MC and NOT a nice man. She loves her twin daughters but Mad Dog was not happy when she filed for divorce. He hit her where her heart was which is with her kids. He set her up and her girls were taken away and now she’s trying all she can just to see them and get them back.
Cade is a member of the Sinner’s Tribe MC – an outlaw MC. He and Dawn had gotten together for a one night stand about a year ago that turned in to a 2 night stand. Cade hasn’t been able to get Dawn out of his head but she wants nothing to do with an MC again – she’s been betrayed by every man she’s ever trusted except her father and she’s not ready to jump all in with Cade. Cade wants to protect Dawn from Mad Dog but the only way he can do that is if he makes her his old lady. Dawn has her doubts but since it’s pretend she goes for it in order to protect her children.
The story centers around Dawn and her issues with Mad Dog and the children as well as her relationship with Cade. It’s definitely not your normal love story but I thought it was the perfect mixture of action and romance the MC way.
Cade was such a good guy and I liked him almost immediately. He was a bit confused as to his feelings for Dawn cuz they were so unexpected. I mean the guy had won awards from his MC like getting voted “Least Likely to Settle Down” and “Biker Manwhore of the Year” for heavens sake, so he wasn’t the only one who was shocked when he only wanted Dawn – his MC was shocked as well. He was a protective man and he did his best to take care of Dawn. I really liked his personality and the way he was with Dawn’s daughters who were 7 years old. Gotta love a tough, gritty, dangerous biker with a big heart.
With Dawn it took a little longer for me to like her. I liked her resilience and her strength despite all the incredible shit she’d gone through in her life, that’s for sure. What I didn’t like was her indecision when it came to Cade. She was so on again, off again about whether to be with him or not that it started to get old. Once she finally made up her mind she was one tough biker old lady.
Overall it was a great book and another close look into the Sinner’s Tribe MC. I like this MC a lot and can’t wait to read Zane’s book next.
