Sex. Who really knows sex? I mean, we've all had sex, great sex even but when you get down to the details, how many of us actually see sex for the raw, primal act that it is?

I thought I knew sex. I've had sex. Heck, I've felt lust. Once, I've even felt love. I thought I knew exactly what sex was.

Until I met Cade.  He's the meaning of sex. He's a biker. He's dangerous.   He's powerful. He's dominant. He wants me.

My world is about to change, for the better? I don't know. But here's my story, I hope you're ready for it because it's not the beautiful, heart wrenching story most people have to tell. It's passionate, forbidden, morally incorrect and downright, fucking beautiful.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

For a  21-year-old woman Addison has lived a hard life. Raised by a troubled mother she experienced the worse of the worst. After her mother succumbs to a drug overdose she can’t help feeling relieved that she is finally free of that miserable life. Having no one else to go to, she seeks out her estranged father – Jackson, the MC president of Hell’s Knights.

She was not planning on staying. She just needed respite, just enough time to save and plan the rest of her life. She never expected to develop any ties to anyone especially not the attractive, alpha male VP of the club – Cade. Just when you think she’s been through it all, a man from her past seeks revenge wanting to end the happiness that she’s finally achieved.


“I didn’t want to be saved before, but with you, that all changed. For once, I wanted to see what was on the other side.”


First of all, this book isn’t for everyone. It is dark and brutal and deals with very difficult situations that would make most queasy. I would have to say that in general I  enjoyed this biker  story .

I appreciated Addison’s strength and  that she able to get past her terrible childhood (if you can call it that) with her head held high. I loved her for her sass and how she never let all those alpha males intimidate her. I did however struggle with Cade’s character. Addison’s character building was satisfactory but Cade’s  felt a little rushed and I thought there  was so much more to tell.  I would have loved to  have read more about his background story .

Although the chemistry between Addison and Cade was primal and the sexing was phenomenal for some odd reason I felt that those scenes lacked proof of an emotional connection. I did however love the epilogue and I am hoping that even if the next book isn’t about them that we get a glimpse into their life together.

For a debut  I thought the storyline and plot was great and it flowed smoothly.  It was raw and intense , just the way I like my dark romances and I can’t wait to see how the writing and the characters  development further progress in the upcoming books.

The Verdict:

Excerpt:

He leans closer, lifting his heavily ringed fingers to stroke my cheek so lightly, I tremble.

“You’re the kind of girl that makes a man want to stop what he’s doing, just so he can get a moment to look at that angelic face – a face that will keep him awake for the rest of his fuckin’ life. That’s the kind of girl you are, sugar.”

I swallow, feeling my body coming to life beneath his touch.

“I think you’re wrong,” I breathe as he leans even closer.

“I’m not wrong. I’ve seen a lot of people in my life, and I’ve been with a lot of girls. None of them are as real as you. I’ll fuck you, sugar. I’ll claim you because you’re the meaning of need. You’re what I’ve been lookin’ for.”

Is he serious? I tremble as he moves even closer, bringing his lips only millimeters from mine. I swallow over and over, trying to think of anything else but him. How could he possibly want me that much, after a mere week and a bit? It’s not possible; he doesn’t know me. He just wants something different, a challenge perhaps? I don’t know, but I do know he’s completely wrong about me.

“I’m not what anybody looks for. I’m not what they fight for. I’m not what they breathe for. I’m not the girl you think I am.”

He leans down, shocking me as he slides his lips over mine, gently at first, then roughly when I begin to respond. I can’t help my hand, as it lifts up to wrap around the chain on his jeans. I tug it, bringing him closer. His boots crunch in the dirt as he takes a step closer, pressing his body against mine. I open my mouth, allowing his tongue to slide in and tangle with mine. His fingers travel up my neck, over my cheek and then he thrusts them into my hair, tangling it around them. The kiss is the kind of kiss that stops your breath, the kind of kiss that stops everything. For a split second, all I can feel is him. When he pulls back, I snake my tongue out and lick the last of him off my bottom lip.

“You might not think you’re worth fighting for, or breathing for, but let me tell you, sugar – everyone deserves to be fought for, even those who think they aren’t worth it.”
