Chelsea (The Club Girl Diaries Book 2) Kindle Edition
She was young when her parents were killed, and she was thrown into the system as just another statistic. One foster home after another, hell after hell. When things got too hard, her first instinct was to get out and fast.
She didn’t mind being a club girl. Who wouldn't want a group of possessive alpha males on your side and in your bed? The freedom and the lifestyle allowed her to spread her wings while the rules and bylaws kept everyone in line. It was comfortable – safe.
But while her head told her she was happy, her heart reminded her constantly of what she really wanted – Brothers by Blood President, Optimus. He was a brooding asshole who was sexy, loyal and pushed the boundaries of both her body and her mind. He never let her all the way in, but she still couldn't stay away from him – he was addictive.
Optimus had only one rule – family comes first.
He knew that sometimes sacrifices needed to be made in order to keep the ones he loved safe. He'd done it before and he would do it again.
Being President of the Brothers by Blood MC meant he couldn't show any weakness. His feelings for Chelsea were off the charts, but so far he'd managed to hide them and keep her at an arm’s length thinking he was protecting her. Beautiful, athletic and sassy, she wasn't just another club girl, she was HIS girl.
Danger is fast approaching and Chelsea is in its direct sight. Will it be too late for Optimus to show Chelsea how he really feels? And when secrets are revealed will Chelsea stay and stand beside the man she wants or will the urge to run just be too strong?

Troy Duran's journey to audiobook narration started with radio in 1983. For the first thirty years of his career, Troy was either on the air hosting morning and afternoon drive programs, or behind the scenes producing station promos and commercials. By 2005, his moonlighting gigs recording commercials for advertising agencies locally and nationally allowed him to become a full-time voice for hire out of his home studio. Then came the opportunity to record audiobooks. Troy has more than thirty titles under his belt so far, from historical fiction and horror to thrillers and romance novels. He lives in St. Charles, Missouri, with his beautiful girlfriend, Sheila; her seventeen-year-old daughter, who tolerates him; his precocious eleven-year-old son; one overweight black Lab, a Corgi with a Napoleon Complex, and the world's cutest cat. He has two beautiful adult children who already pursue respectable careers in teaching and fine cuisine. --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

** If you have not read the previous story, the following may contain spoilers **
⛔️ Contains references to, or scenes detailing, subject matter that may be a trigger or offensive to some, including adult language; derogatory terms; mental health challenges; steamy adult intimate scenes with dominance, submission, multiple / shared partners, spanking for pleasure and/or punishment, restraints, etc.; violence stereotypical of the genre such as kidnapping, abduction, murder, death, torture, assault, fighting, blackmail, coercion, threats, human trafficking, drug use, drug distribution, gun running, betrayal, subterfuge, etc.
There are grammatical issues throughout, but not as many as previous stories by Addison Jane that I have read and nothing that was difficult to interpret. There are incorrect word choice / tense (woman vs women), incorrect / missing punctuation, missing words and extra inserted words. I am mentioning these for readers such as myself that visualize the story as it is read, because errors interrupt the flow.
I was a little disappointed in that there was only a couple of intimate scenes with Optimus and Chelsea in what is a fairly lengthy story. Fortunately there was enough detail (i.e. stolen glances, chemistry, etc.) in this one and the previous that their feelings came through. This one had a lot more subterfuge, mystery and action and less focus on romance.
This story begins after the end of the previous story. Chelsea finds out that Optimus has cancelled her classes and she is not happy. She confronts him, but he reminds her of “her place” and tells her there is more going on and it is not safe for her to leave the compound.
Chelsea turns the tables in that if the club is not paying for her classes, then she is not a “Club girl” and therefore doesn’t need to “take” care of the men (even though it has only been Optimus for a long time), and she will just leave so she can get a job to pay for college.
The conversation makes Optimus angry, but he is convinced he is doing the right thing in trying to push her away. He gets her to calm down and wants to enjoy what time he can, because he is afraid things are not going to go well when they get there.
The next morning, Chelsea wakes up and Optimus has already left. She goes out to get some breakfast, then before she knows it there is someone at the gate for Optimus and a stunning woman comes in and walks right up to him. They embrace and touch foreheads. Chelsea is stunned and not sure what is going on … Then before she can figure it out a little girl bounds toward Optimus calling out “Daddy” … She can hear her mother telling her to run … No way is she sticking around for this
I only wish that Chelsea made Optimus work for it when he finally decided to claim her. I wish she didn't jump (literally) right back into his arms, but other than that, I enjoyed the story and am looking forward to the next one.
Chelsea lost her parents young. She bounced around foster homes. Some good. Some bad. Some terrible. She does not talk about it or dwell. Chelsea became a club girl for the Brothers by Blood MC Athens chapter. Along with her best friend Harmony, another club girl, they had the perfect life. Then change happened. Harmony was claimed which left Chelsea behind. She loves a man who keeps himself always a step or two attached. She may have finally reached her breaking point.
"It was at that point that I knew, even with all the s*** I'd been through in my life, Optimus was going to be the one to break me."
Bryce "Optimus" is the President of Brothers by Blood MC Athens chapter. He lost his mother and father tragically that he bears the guilt of daily. It has shaped the choices (ahem mistakes) he has made. Especially with two important aspects of his life - his daughter and the woman he will not claim. Now that the mafia is threatening the club, Optimus must face is past to have a future. That is if he does not push her away in the process.
Holy betrayal. I was not expecting that.
Cliffhanger – yes (book #2 of series)
POV - Chelsea, Optimus & Rose
Chelsea is not just any club girl, in more than one level. Falling in love with Op is the cherry on top as this girl's life is so much more than you would originally expect from a club girl who grew up in foster care. I love the fact that there is Mafia, DEA and MC involved. After reading Harmony's story, you expect the Mafia to rain down on the MC because of Target and his death but there was so much more intriguing Chelsea's story even more.
The supporting characters are full of life. The ending isn't really a cliffhanger but it is an introduction to the next book. Can't wait for Blizzards's story. Don't know how Rose will redeam herself but it's going to be a tough one. Looking forwrad to that book.
Loved the book - not the cover so much?!? That is NOT how I pictured Chelsea from the previous book - just saying...

Optimus is still refusing to acknowledge that they have something, and each time the threat he knows is coming he pushes her further away but won't let her go.
Chelsea makes the decision when Optimus' past arrives at the club door and she finally realises that he will never acknowledge what they have - accepting this she packs and walks away.
But her freedom is not guaranteed, betrayal from close quarters, lies and smokescreens all come together and the explanation of the what and why is ....wow that clears that up!! Enjoy I did
Loved that Optimus finally got his act together, and owned up to wanting Chelsea.
Along with all the bad-ass, hot alpha bikers and the drama with the Mafia family the DePalmas , it made for another great read from Addison Jayne. Looking forward to the next book , hopefully it will be a Blizzard & Rose !!!
