Beau McIntyre is driven by a past smothered in blood and covered in bruises. Though tragic, it's help shape his future and define the man he's become.

Day in and day out, he's reminded of his failures in the faces of the women he saves. But what happens when one girl threatens to blow all of that apart? Will Beau lose his grip on the controlled lifestyle he abides by?

Mackenzie Moore is running from a past she needs to forget. A past that has molded her into a woman living in fear. One fateful night, her carefully constructed world is pulled down around her, forcing her to make a decision she's not sure she can live with. 

Turning to the Knights Rebels MC for help is the last thing she wants, but everything she needs. 

Can Beau save her once again, or is what she running to far worse than what she’s running from? 


“Kenzie, I’m heading out. Will you be all right on your own?” I call out to her but receive no reply. Her door is ajar a few inches, so I knock, letting the force push it open further.

She is standing there. Her pert tits take my attention first and instantly my cock stirs back to life. She doesn’t stop to cover herself and I don’t look away.

“I’m heading out.” I manage some cough mumble thing, my throat becoming dry. She doesn’t say anything and her eyes don’t leave me. I should turn away, let her change in private, but I’m lost in the sight of her.

The soft glow of her bedside lamp highlights her against the dark room but even from this distance, I can see every one of those goose bumps glazing her skin.

We continue to stand silent for what feels like hours, until the soft whisper of her nightgown falling to the floor shocks me back, like the first momentary sonic boom that fills the skies on a Fourth of July weekend. My eyes follow its descent, pausing at the lace covering her pussy.

Jesus, fuck, turn around, man.

I swallow past my hunger and try to will myself to leave, but fail when her fingers hook into the side of her lace panties.

“Mackenzie, don’t.” My warning comes out strangled, my resolve slipping, but it doesn’t stop her. She continues to undress, sliding her panties down her legs then stepping out of them, leaving her completely exposed to me.

She’s beautiful. Fucking perfect. Every fucking inch of her. But there’s an innocence to her. One touch, one taste is going to destroy me.

What the fuck is wrong with you, man? Go to her. Fucking take her.

“Darlin’,” I say with a heavy breath, forcing my eyes away from her naked body and back up to her face. Her pink, plump lips, swollen from our kisses, slightly part as she draws in a long breath.

“You’re making this really fucking hard to stay away.” My voice cracks as my gaze catches her hand sliding between her legs.

“If you’re not going to help me, then leave.” Her voice is barely a whisper as her finger slips between her pussy lips disappearing from view. And fuck it turns me on.

Before I realize what I’m doing, my legs carry me to her. Not giving it a second thought, I slap her hand away from her pussy and pull her naked body to me. She comes willingly, a small cry filling the room at my touch.

“Fuck,” I groan, knowing I’m close to losing control. “I need you to think this through, darlin’. Be real fucking sure, ‘cause once we start, I don’t think I’ll be able to stop,” I tell her when her chest hits mine.

“I’ve never wanted anything more, Beau.” My name coming from her lips in a plea cancels out all my reservations, and before I can comprehend what’s happening, I have her on her back on the bed.

Pulling off my cut and shirt in record time, I flip the button of my jeans. Mackenzie comes up on her elbows and watches as I lose my jeans.

“Holy shit, you have it pierced.” She looks down at my cock, intrigue turning to wonder.

“I have two.” I point to the Apadravya piercing. The small barbell runs through the head of my penis. I then pull to show her the Frenum piercing on the underside of my cock.

“Did they hurt?” She bites her lip, her eyes not leaving the piercing.

“I survived. Had it done years ago.” She nods but doesn’t say anything.

“You keep looking at me like that and I don’t think I’ll last long,” I admit. Her inquisitive eyes move from my piercing up to my face and I realize it wouldn’t matter what way she looked at me. I’m wound up so fucking tight from not having my cock in a woman for God knows how long, I’m not going to last long regardless.

“Like what?” She looks back down at my cock and it bounces its own hello.

“Like you want to wrap your mouth around my dick and milk it dry,” I offer the visual, the picture playing out in my mind.

Yep, there is no way I’m going back on this, now.

“No one has ever spoken to me like this before.” Her teeth graze her bottom lip, and I don’t know if she’s afraid of me, or fucking turned on.

“You want me to stop talking to you this way?” I ask, placing a knee down on the bed and moving over her.

“I don’t think so.” She lays back, her dark hair spilling around her.

“You don’t think so? It’s a yes or no question, darlin’.” I keep my eyes on her, like I need to memorize every inch of her body.

“No,” she answers instantly.

“Then I won’t.”

Sit down folks, we need to talk about this book. Don't make me get the rope. .

Let start with discussing a very touchy subject matter - abuse. This is a hard topic to discuss, let alone write about. And not only write about, but write it in such a manner that it touches you, you feel it. You hurt for Kenzie, Missy, all the women Beau helps. River didn't just write it into a book, she gave us a freakin screenplay, a mini movie. She delivered it in such a way, for me, it was like a movie playing out in my head as we read it- past and present. 

Let's move on to the chemistry. I have always been a Nix fan. Always said he was my favorite. But I don't know now. Beau may have just topped Nix. And not only did my toes curl every damn time he said Darlin', but Jesus I feel like my hormones got a live wire jump start. Can you have an out of body orgasm just from reading? I think I may have. Seriously. Me saying it was hot, doesn't do it justice. 

Now, still with me? Can we discuss this freaking club? I don't even want to call it that anymore. Because this club has such a bond of friendship, loyalty, and brotherhood, that club doesn't do it justice. River has given us a family. River have given us men that, as good as they were single, as epically incredible with the women who stand next to them. 

Lastly, let's discuss the smooth and flawless writing style of Mrs Savage. From the minute I picked up this book, I was done for. River's writing style is always so flawless, so smooth, so addictive and Infatuation doesn't fall out of that mold. Even with the heavy topics and bumps in the road, it was still so flawless. And if you've read River before, you shouldn't be surprised. If you haven't, you may be missing out on one of the best MC writers to enter this genre within the past few years.

This was a solid 4.5 - 5 star read for me

I am still finding it hard to express how I feel about this book. Please keep in mind I just finished reading it on Sunday and it is now Tuesday... I am in LOVE with Infatuation. I mean I absolutely love it.

River has done an amazing job with this story. Abuse is a very rough subject and River handled it so well. Infatuation truly makes you feel so many feelings. She made me want to hurt all the men who put their hands on Kenzie, on Kelly, on Missy and every other woman who has been abused. My heart broke for them.... BUT to see the ones who have gotten away and who have been strong enough to get help made me proud of them. The fact that River could make me feel that way... It takes someone so special and so talented to handle this subject with such delicate hands. I truly applaud her for taking it on!

Now onto the hot and steamy stuff... Beau... I had my reservations about him.... He seemed so much colder then he actually is. He had such a hard shell that I absolutely loved how Kenzie got under his skin and brought out his soft side. Now don't get me wrong he is still Bad Ass.  I have been a Nix girl through and through... BUT Beau has changed my mind in so many ways. I'll list a few and they may not make any sense to you now... But when you read this book you will understand why. 1) the word "Darlin" 2) Dominance 3) Beau's Beard 4) My Kind of Kink 5) Total softy inside and 6) Loves hard. Now I could truly go on, but I'll let you figure out the rest for yourself.

Now Kenzie, I love how strong she truly is, her sass. She is so sassy it's great. I love how caring she is and how she has helper Beau feel again! I also really loved how Beau made Kenzie strong again. They truly are a perfect match.  They have such amazing chemistry! The sex is HOT. Like hotter then hot. Be prepared to have your panties melt....

I know that is seems like I'm a scatter brain with how I'm talking about things, but this is what happens sometimes when you love a book so much. There is one thing I want to mention and it is all about the Rebels. They truly are a family, if something happens to one, you deal with them all. They support each other 250% no matter what. They love hard and they make new family members feel welcome and loved. River is my favorite MC series writer. I can't get through a lot of them for many many reasons that I will not get into here, but if I never read another MC Series other than Rivers I'll be ok with that. If you haven't read her books yet you are missing out. This is by far her best book yet and I can only imagine that she will get better and better. I look forward to reading everything she has coming next. Thank you River for writing another 5 star read for me!
