After her father was murdered in the line of duty, ATF agent Samantha Vargas is determined to take down the scumbags of the drug trade. When her partner takes on a case to infiltrate the Hells Raiders MC, Samantha agrees to go undercover as his old lady but is surprised to find herself drawn to the very man she is investigating.
Benjamin “Bishop” Malloy has worked hard to carve a place for himself both in and out of the MC world. Working days as a mechanic, he spends his nights rebuilding motorcycles with the hope of one day owning his own shop. After taking one of the club’s new hang-arounds under his wing, Bishop is conflicted over his growing attraction for the man’s girlfriend.
Even though she’s determined to bring down the Raiders, Samantha discovers their world isn’t as black-and-white as she thought. And as the stakes grow higher, she’s in danger of losing more than her heart.
What an emotional rollercoaster! I loved how Katie Ashley continuously surprises me. Not only with the role that the H/h played in the story but the way she was able to manipulate my various emotions so effortlessly.
The third book in the Vicious Cycle revolves around the Sergent of Arms of the Hell’s Raiders MC – Bishop Malloy and an ATF Agent Samantha Vargas. I know your first questions is “WHAT? How is that even possible?” I too was pretty skeptical after reading that synopsis the first time.
There isn’t anything to worry about however because Katie Ashley pulls this one-off seamlessly. This is what I love most about this entire series – you would never think that the couples would fit but she proves to us time and again that each of these hardened MC men do deserve their HEA with these remarkable women.
I do have to comment that the MC elements aren’t as dark compared to other MC romances out there today but this to me was what made it stand out from the rest – it concentrates more on the relationships rather than the violence.
I personally enjoyed this book and I’m hoping that this isn’t the last we’ve heard from the Hell’s Raiders MC Club.
