Editorial Reviews

Review

Overall, this is a great first effort from this new author and I think she shows a lot of promise. - GoodReads

This book took me by surprise. I have only read one other book that was about bikers or biker gangs and it was just alright for me. This one has me ready to start watching Sons of Anarchy. The hook of it was for me was understanding the depths of what a single mother would do to provide for her family. - 5 Stars The Book Diaries

I really enjoyed this book..Loved the story line, the characters, crazy club life depicted in this story, definitely going to recommend this book!!  - GoodReads

From the Author

While the Heaven Hill Series can be read as stand-alone's, they are enjoyed much better when read as a series.

This book was very good...not great, but the series has promise.

Let's get to the basics: Satisfying HEA with a yummy epilogue, no cheating, his/her POV, steamy sex scenes, a few "F" words used sparingly and no words more offensive than the "F" word (no "p" words used), action scenes, a hot alpha male who is completely into the heroine, very little if any misspelled words or "then" and "than" kind of stuff, and great promise for an enjoyable series.

**Spoilers**

Denise Cunningham is a single mom of 13 year old twins (boy and girl)raising them alone without any assistance from anyone. She's essentially on her own, has lost her good paying job, is working part-time temporary job, has just received notification her house is in foreclosure, and she's completely broke. When she agrees to cover Roni's (co-worker) shift, she jumps onto the radar of the local motorcycle club (Heaven Hill MC) and they decide to recruit her to do their dirty work. Liam Walker, VP of the MC and son of the president, is against it in the beginning, but he has no choice but to cave, though he vows, repeatedly, to keep her safe.

At first, I completely got why Denise would take the job--her children's welfare are her primary reason and she feels she has no choice. But this is where it started to lose me and I couldn't figure out why until I'd finished the book. The author had a good start on creating three-dimensional characters, especially with Denise and Liam, but fell short in the motivation department, which resulted in some falty characterization unfortunately.

For instance, one of Denise's most important character traits was her devotion to her children and their safety, yet she continually allowed them to be put into danger.

I finished this book in one day, because once I started it I couldn't put it down! There's a great, unique family dynamic in this book. While this is the story of the main characters William Walker Jr. "Liam" and single mother Denise Cunningham, it's actually about the whole family/Club. Throughout the book Denise struggles with making sure her 13 year old twins have what they need and getting caught up in circumstances she's been dealt. Denise starts out knowing what the "Club" does is wrong 100% but as she falls in love with Liam, the line between right and wrong blurs. The Club gives Denise and her kids the family and security that they'd been lacking for a very long time. Liam is a very charming guy, who quickly takes on a protector role to Denise and her twins. Before he knows it, he's in love with them all and protecting them at all costs. I won't give anything away, but I think by the end you can definitely see that though Denise is starting to accept what Liam does, it's Liam who starts to question what he's doing. I imagine this will be the main plot theme of the series. The struggle the Club has between what's too far over the line.

What I most enjoyed about the book is how interwoven the secondary characters were mixed in. I've read a lot of books over the years and sometimes when you read a series it feels like the characters to future and previous books are thrown in for cameos to make it connected. That's not the case here. All the characters you meet are interwoven deeply into the story, it's as much about them as it is about Liam and Denise. To me I feel like secondary characters Tyler and Meredith (who are the main characters for the next book) stole the show and I can't wait for their book!

I do have to warn folks, there is violence and crime in this book. There is also a very graphic scene in the book that could disturb some, but it's necessary to the story. It shows just how gritty and brutal of a world the Club has put themselves in.

I had high hopes for this book based on the description and the other reviews, but I'm 36% done and I don't know if I'll be able to finish it. Read on if you care to--everything I'm discussing can be found in the first third of the book, so I don't particularly consider anything a SPOILER.

Let's stick with the basics:

Denise is broke. Bad broke. Nothing in the pantry, and two teenaged kids to feed. Believe me, I can see how she would be desperate. HOWEVER, I found it distasteful that with hardly any resistance, she agrees to be a DRUG RUNNER for a local gang. As much as she claims to love her children, she seems to leave them home alone for long periods of time, quite frequently. My disdain for her grew exponentially when she brought her children along to the gang headquarters--a location she KNEW was dangerous.

Is Liam supposed to be likable? Because I cannot, for the life of me, see how. He is a criminal. In fact, he's the "VP" of the gang who recruited Denise to ferry a drug shipment. There's no reluctance on his part about his role in this "club." Although he has moments where he is trying to protect Denise, I am actively rooting against him by this point in the story.

To be honest, I haven't met a single character I like yet.

I'm truly torn about whether I should read on. Other reviewers seems pretty stoked about this book! I'm just not sure I'm reading from the same one...

This is the first time I've read anything by this author and her writing is good, with memorable characters that are out of the norm for romantic heros. There were just a few typos, otherwise the editing was very professional. The choice of a motorcycle club as a setting (think "Sons of Anarchy"), allowed the author to have heros that are involved in illegal activity such as drug smuggling and gun running, while still trying to make them honorable men. This is difficult for me as a reader to swallow. It also made me question a bit Denise's decision making and parenting. However, I know parents will do almost anything to provide for their children, and people who are stuck in bad families or situations aren't necessarily evil people. So, grain of salt, just my thoughts....

Our hero, Liam (William Jr), is the VP of the Heaven Hill Motorcycle Club, and raised by his father, William Sr, to take over some day. He doesn't agree with everything that the club does, but he backs up his brothers. His father rules with an iron fist and likes to use it. So even though he's got reservations about involving her, he still pulls his sister's desperate friend into doing some well paid "favors" of drug deliveries for the club. He swears a lot, has to be bailed out regularly, but has a heart of gold and doesn't believe in hitting women, even though his father does.

On her birthday, laid off factory worker Denise, is served with foreclosure process papers for her house. The crappy, minimum wage, part-time job she managed to get can't pay the bills and feed her 13 yr old twins. When her friend asks her to pick up an extra shift, she gladly does so, just to put food on the table.
