As soon as I finish this review, I'm starting Moody's story.
Luna is running. Having escaped the clutches of her controlling and abusive ex-husband, fearing for the safety of her parents, she hightails it out of town to her grandfather’s run-down trailer located in a fish camp in the middle of nowhere. She keeps her contact with her parents to a minimum and her head down … until she meets Casey. The spirited neighbor quickly introduces her to MC life and her boyfriend, who is a patched member of the club. But what really catches her attention is the huge, broody biker that puts off danger in waves, but immediately draws her in sexually. He’s the absolute opposite of the boring life she’s led the past decade. Despite his claims that he only does casual, she quickly recognizes wanting more from him. He’s just as caught up on her and agrees to exclusive, if only for a short time. If that’s all she can get, she’ll force herself to live with it. But being with Jace is not only learning about a different kind of guy, but it’s also understanding an entirely different way of life and learning to accept all of it. That’s one difficult accomplishment to pull off given the literal danger Luna finds herself in simply for being associated with the club, however slight that connection. But somehow Jace continues to race to her rescue and her heart just keeps pulling her in deeper with each moment she spends with him. Wishing for more won’t make it a reality, but convincing her heart she’ll have to move on after he’s wrecked her for any other man is a different story entirely. But she’s nothing if not a survivor.
Jace is a nomad and has been for approaching 30 years. In his mid-forties, he’s thinking of slowing down a bit. Never one to have even allowed himself to entertain anything so normal as a relationship with a woman, something about Luna immediately enchants him. He can’t put his finger on it, but recognizes there is something completely different about her; their connection intense, their sexual chemistry so far off the charts it doesn’t come close to registering. He might be hanging around for a job, but until another job takes him away, he’ll stay and indulge in this new addiction as much as he can. But he also realizes that there is no hope for a future with him, knowing he’s one of the bad guys, so he tries to shut Luna out and put some distance between them, attempting to set her free. But an unforeseen threat rears its ugly head and Jace is quickly forced back to Luna – hopefully in time to save her and confess his feelings. Because this nomad is ready to curb his roaming ways and set down roots with the beauty who has captured his heart.
I felt like I was coming home with this book. We are back with the Wreckers MC and happily get to revisit with Raze and Rosa as well as Reaper and Marie (both couples from HIS POSSESSION). Also adding to my reading pleasure was a brief interaction with Rebel from the first book in this series, RUTHLESS. This book appears to take place just a few short months following the conclusion of RUTHLESS. Let us address my biggest issue first – Luna is running from her ex and wanting to lay low to avoid him coming after her. However, given her remote location, that possibility is slim. But even as her false sense of security allows her to socialize, she behaves in a way I would define as out of character for herself when she ends up at the club party. So I took a bit of an issue with that. However, I am going to contradict myself next. In behaving out of the norm, she is also embracing her new self and life. She’s spent a decade under the thumb of her Ex, Seth. At eighteen when she married him, she basically “grew up” molded into the person he expected her to be or fear punishment all the while her inner self was warring internally because she wasn’t allowed to be who she really was. Therefore, one could argue that for the first time in her life she is finally the person she always was. See what I mean by contradiction? But understanding where she came from and the experience of her newfound freedom and thinking she expertly covers her tracks, at the end of the day I can’t really fault her for any of it. I mean she has a burner phone for cripes sake, just to keep her parents safe. It’s not like she’s an idiot. I have an unanswered question though: I do wonder if Jace has a name. It stands to reason that Jace is his MC name. I only wonder because Rebel’s true name was revealed in the previous book, yet Jace’s was not. So that lack of info has me curious. Also, I would like to mention that there is what could be a trigger for some within the pages of this book. Rape does occur although much of what is described is the aftermath and recovery both physical and mental. Some abuse occurs within the same time frame. Those of you who are sensitive to this subject matter might want to steer clear or skip that section when it happens. I did think that Ms. Richards did an exceptionally good job of respecting the character that experienced this and not making it the focus of the book after it happened, but also not downplaying her distress by acting as if it never happened. She created a sort of balance between allowing the main characters to continue on their journey while also allowing the assaulted victim to deal with her abuse and find a way to move on from the violence of it all.
As per Mr. Richard’s trademark, this book was chock a block full of erotic scenes. Her main characters always have this electric attraction that creates an itch (as Luna says) that refuses to be scratched no matter how close or far the characters are from one another, nor how often they attempt to scratch it. Always believing it is a temporary state of lust that will alleviate with mind-blowing sex, they are always shocked to realize the lust is love and the itch is a fierce addiction for one another. So that is the same and an element I have come to expect and adore with Ms. Richards books. What was a bit different was the age gap between the characters. Or maybe it wasn’t. I seem to remember Rebel and Ginger having a bit of an age gap as well – but not as big as Jace and Luna. Twenty-eight and forty-four is kind of a jump. However, Jace is not written as an aging old dude. He acknowledges his age and that he desires a few things to be different than several years ago, but neither is he contemplating retiring and disappearing to live out his remaining years in solitude. Instead, he’s a virile man, hardened and wise from his years of experience as a nomad, exuding youth and strength. Sheesh, who wouldn’t find that attractive? But he’s a bit caught up on their age difference initially. I was actually relieved that he got over it rather quickly because reading about a nomad biker chastising himself for wanting to hook up with a younger, smoking-hot female would have ended up eliciting nausea. It wouldn’t have worked for his character one bit, so I was perfectly fine with the acknowledgment and then acceptance of the fact. Also interesting were Luna’s thoughts and feelings as she learned more about MC life. She knows absolutely nothing about it until Casey brings her into the fold and begins to explain things little by little as subjects come up. Then she learns first-hand through her own experiences. She lashes out with harsh words when she doesn’t understand why certain preventative actions weren’t taken, but she also comes to respect certain aspects as well. While I do not believe that she fully accepted every part of the MC life, she also wouldn’t have had to completely because Jace was never and would never be tied to a particular MC as a patched member. I can’t say as I would have seen some things any different than she did had I been in her position, so I felt her reactions were relevant. In the end, she accepts enough to be able to love Jace and respect his beliefs so that was enough. Luna is a bit of a conundrum though because sometimes she projects nothing but strength. At times I saw her as weak and too reliant on Jace. But when you really dissect things, it’s splitting hairs on just how strong she is. She wasn’t actually lying in wait, praying for Jace to rescue her. She was formulating plans and acting when necessary. She didn’t ask Jace to come to her aid, nor did she expect it. She just got lucky when he appeared at the right times. So yes, she’s fierce and perfectly capable for the most part and that’s a character I can’t help but like. As far as Jace, he was a given, as are all three of these fantastic nomads. I can’t wait to see who will capture Moody’s heart and lay him flat. Because that guy is up next and he’s got a whole lot of mystery surrounding him.
As an MC read, this one is completely satisfying. Packed full of action and emotion, you won’t be disappointed. I may have enjoyed the first book in this series just a bit more than I did this one, but it wasn’t by much. Maybe half a star as ratings go. With a toggling viewpoint, the reader grasps a good sense of each main character and where their head is. And with a fun and sexy epilogue for one year later, the reader is also brought a fulfilling sense of closure for this unlikely, but perfectly matched couple. I hope that I fall in love with Moody’s book just as much as I did with Rebel and Jace. I suspect it might end up being the best of the three. I will wait until I finish it before I move forward with a recommendation for the entire trilogy, but so far, I can say that any lover of MC erotic romance is sure to enjoy the first two books of the NOMAD OUTLAW TRILOGY. Jace will take you on a wild ride of emotion and action in this wonderfully sexy erotic read. You might be relegated to the back seat of the bike, but the foreplay provided within these pages will leave you breathless and blushing.
Kindle version provided by Author in exchange for an honest review.
Luna is hiding from an abusive boyfriend, while Jase is in town to help the local MC club with business. Also a nomad, he has made friends in different MCs. So when his brothers need him, he says yes. No strings attached, no settling down. Luna, on the other hand, wants to lay low, forget and live a quiet life. She has limited contact with her family and is even reticent towards making new friends. Their attraction is immediate and what happens next is… again, full of action.
Same as “Ruthless”, we have a lot of explicit scenes, we have a lot of dirty talk but, as opposed to Ginger, I did not understand Luna. She appears shy and wanting to lay low, still she attracts the attention of the guys in the MC. I felt there were contradictions in the way she was created. Same goes for Jace. Right now, he sees the innocence in her. But on the next page, he thinks the worst.
The scenes in “Dangerous” were too much for me, some I think were not very believable. Trigger warning for abuse and rape, but my respect for the author and how she treated the character involved in this.
Oh, and I almost forgot, there are so many explanations regarding the MCs and the rules. Sometimes they are even repeated. It felt more like a book 1, than a 2. I don’t know. It didn’t stay well with me. Hard to rate it, but I’ll go with 3 stars, for now.
Luna had run from her controlling ex and is staying at the campsite that was near to the Wreckers MC and had become friends of theirs, Jace is a Nomad and is helping the Wreckers, he and Luna have an attraction but he only wants casual, when another MC tries to muscle in, they take Luna and another girl Casey and then all hell breaks loose.
I was interested in Jace when I first heard of him in Ruthless, he's a player and I couldn't wait to find him struck with love, though he would never admit it.
I can definitely recommend this as it is an absolute page turner. I was captivated by the first page and I can't wait to read Moody's story.
I received a copy and I am voluntarily leaving my own honest opinion
