Following in the tradition of Kristen Ashley, Joanna Wilde, and Jay Crownover, this first novel in a sexy, dark New Adult series tells the thrilling story of a young woman who finds herself drawn to a Southern motorcycle club’s inner circle—and a dangerously hot biker.

Aubrey Evans needs to get her life back on track after her father is indicted for embezzlement. She’ll save college tuition money, hightail it out of small-town Tennessee, and steer clear of hard-muscled boys on motorcycles. Yet there’s no ignoring someone like Zion. A knight in black leather, Zion looks like every bad idea she’s been told to avoid, but she can’t resist him. Whenever she’s in trouble, he’s there. Appealing as his rough exterior may be, it’s the protective, principled man beneath that tempts her like crazy.

Zion knows Aubrey doesn’t intend to stick around. She claims to want only friendship, but he senses there’s a naughty girl hiding on the inside—one whose intense desires match his own. For now, he’ll be patient and play by her rules. Though he knows it’s just a matter of time before he weakens her resolve.

As they join forces to figure out who’s behind a local crime spree, it’s clear that the danger goes deeper than Aubrey guessed. And when she needs someone tall, dark, and undaunted to keep her safe, Zion intends to be there—now and always.

As their relationship heats up, Rowdy starts to let his heart go – until the one person who could drive them apart shows up again.

***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review***

I really enjoyed this book. This book is the first book of the series and introduces a motorcycle club with a lot of hot guys on Harleys and they are all willing to step up and protect or help a damsel in distress…. Though a damsel does not always need to be saved 😛 This was a fun read and I can tell you that this story was told beautifully with both strong characters each with a back story. I really can’t wait to see where this series will take us!

Now what is the story about??? Let me tell you…. This book is an intriguing contemporary romance that is based more on the couple’s relationship than on the MC…. It would have been nice to see more MC in this book but I still enjoyed it! Anyway this book is about a small town in Williamsville, Tennessee where a group of seniors neighbourhood is being plagued by break-ins and vandalism. Now the sheriff isn’t doing anything about it so who will stop the crimes? Aubrey did not want to move to Tennessee but she had to because she had nowhere to go. Now she is living with her grandmother and she also didn’t to plan on meeting any guys to date. Zion always arrived whenever she got in trouble, Zion wanted to date her but Aubrey was so keen on not dating anyone that she nearly pushed him away. But both of them will have to make sacrifices to if their love is to endure.

Ronnie Douglas meshes romance and suspense wonderfully together. The plot is emotionally intense as Aubrey continually fights her attraction to Zion while he struggles to waken her resolve. The main characters are beautifully crafted and they add fire and passion to the complexity of their personalities and pasts. What Ronnie did wonderfully was slowly build the chemistry between Aubrey and Zion both very strong willed people from different background.

I really enjoyed the other characters as well… Noah Dash is the cousin of Zion and he also liked Aubrey but Aubrey only had eyes for Zion but Dash is very amiable and charming, I also really liked Ellen who is very spirited and Grandma Maureen is one tough old lady which is good because Eddie Echo is very intimidating as the President of the club and as you learn later Eddie and Maureen love each other. The characteristics make the story unforgettable and very compelling and the plot is very entertaining… I can’t wait for the other books in the series.
