Dee's rating: 4 of 5 stars

The New York Times bestselling author of Vicious Cycleplunges readers into a world of danger and desire in her newest in the Vicious Cycle motorcycle club romance series.

Looking for a walk on the wild side, Annabel Percy, the daughter of a powerful politician, starts dating a biker she knows is completely wrong for her. But she finds herself living a nightmare when she’s kidnapped and transported into a hell on earth she never could have imagined.

Born and bred into the Hells Raiders MC, Nathaniel “Reverend” Malloy lives and dies for his brothers. But when he becomes the unexpected savior of a rival club’s captive, Rev makes it his personal mission to nurse Annabel back to health—and to shelter her from the nightmares that torment her.

Once Annabel heals, she’s stunned to realize she is falling for the seductive man who saved her. Faced with their impossible attraction, can she accept the life he leads, or will Rev walk away from the only life he’s ever known for the woman he was never supposed to love?

Before anything, I want to take a minute and thank Penguin for sending me the paperback copy of this book. I literally sqee'd when it arrived!

I have to say, I am quite impressed with Katie's steps into the mc genre. Now this is a bit heavier than book one, with what happens to Annabelle, but it adds just sadness to the story. You can't help but immediately feel for her, connect with her. And Katie does a great job of providing a background for Rev, and what happened to him, that you immediately connect to him as well. Because of what happened to our characters, their smilar stories, their bond is formed. 

I don't feel like we got much of a taste as Rev as president. He was gone a lot, but for good reason. I just felt like we missed out on that a little. And this isn't the super hard dark gritty MC, but, how do I say this, a lighter version... Maybe? It's a damn good book, and it kept me completely enthralled and addicted the whole time. 

Is it sad that I really wanted Mendoza to suffer a harder fate? And I wanted to know about it? I wanted to him suffer as much as they did. I mean if anyone deserved it, it's Mendoza. I wanted the cartel type of payback, retribution, revenge, and i wanted it bad. I hope it's not weird but KA had me so upset for what he did to these people... I needed them to get revenge hard enough to make a biker proud. 

I think this really is a great mc book. Yes, like i said it's not rough and gritty. But it's got such a great storyline and Katie Ashley is a fabulous writer in how she delivers it. It's definitely a 4 star read for me.

Deacon Malloy’s life is dedicated to the Hell’s Raiders motorcycle club. Tough, hard, and fast with his fists, he serves the group as sergeant at arms. But his devil-may-care approach to life is thrown for a loop when the five-year-old daughter he never knew existed lands on the club steps.

Alexandra Evans is devoted to all her students—but there’s always been something about Willow Malloy that tugs at her heart. There’s an aura of sadness about her, a girl in need of all the love Alexandra can give. When Willow stops coming to school, Alexandra’s search leads to a clubhouse full of bikers…and a father hell-bent on keeping his daughter always within sight.

The moment Deacon sees Alexandra, he has to have her in his bed—and he’s never met a woman yet who couldn’t be persuaded. No matter how attracted she is to Deacon, Alexandra refuses to be just another conquest. But it’s Deacon himself who could be seduced—into a brighter future for himself, his daughter, and the woman he’s falling for against all odds.
