This was my first Max Henry book and I'm extremely impressed with her writing, this definitely will not be my last. Existential has a lot of the qualities that I look for in this type of book. Sometimes, I find books that center around Bikers and Motorcycle clubs can either be too focused on sex or they're too bloody and violent as if the main goal is to shock the reader or worse, like a bad TV movie. Then, there are those books that suck you in from page one and refuse to let you go until the very end. Existential was very much like that and I loved it.
Hooch is club President of the Fort Worth Chapter, yet, at this point, he's feeling as if he may no longer be worthy to lead. After the death of his father and his youngest sister, he's feeling as if everything he touches turns to crap. He's barely holding on and not sure if he has a reason to keep going. Until her.
Dagne has gotten used to being on her own after walking away from everything and everyone years ago. When assistance from a biker brings her to the Aces Fort Worth Chapter, she's grateful for a chance to clean up a little. With no intention of sticking around, she's surprised when her rescuer persuades her to hang out for a bit. Too bad Hooch, the club President, seems to hate her from the first minute his eyes land on her.
Hooch can't bring himself to kick her out right away so instead he gives her tasks normally reserved for prospects. Dagne has no problem with that and sets to work. When Hooch finally apologizes for the way he's been acting towards her and makes her a proposition to earn a great deal of cash, Dagne is wary. It doesn't take long for her to be convinced that it'll all be fine, though, setting Dagne and Hooch on a road that will forever change their worlds.
This story has moments that made me laugh and a few that made me want to cry but mainly it's full of raw emotion. Addiction, depression, abuse, rape, murder. It was a no-holds-barred story that in many ways reminded me of one of my favorite MC series a couple of years ago. I love the gritty life that these people were living, making it all seem more realistic yet giving that SOA type feel, as well, where we can't help but celebrate the antihero.
Hooch was not in any way a Prince Charming and, at first, it's hard to see how anyone would fall for him. He was very flawed and he could be cold and calculating. He was also broken and it was a change from the big bad Alpha characters we see time and time again. His growing dependency on drugs and alcohol, his depression and subsequent self-induced isolation and the almost nonexistent self-confidence made it hard to believe in his true ability to lead. However, as the story progressed, I saw him for what and who he really was and could be and I found myself looking forward to his HEA.
Dagne was likable at first and by the end, I loved them together but, in all honesty, I found her hard to completely connect with. I didn't understand her as well as I wanted to, I found myself annoyed with her at times. I feel as if i need to get more from her before I could totally give my opinion on her character.
I really loved this club and I would love to read more about the Aces. I liked the drama and the tough themes that were dealt with in the story and while it wasn't overly graphic, they definitely made an impact. I'm hoping that there will be more stories in this series because I'm anxious to see more of these characters. I would highly recommend Existential.

Hooch is a man consumed by his own internal pain – yet no one can hear his cries. Or, scratch that, he’s not prepared to let anyone breach his defences long enough to find out. Battered from all angles, he is man spiralling within the depths of his own mind. His position won’t allow for any show of weakness. That is, until her…
“I fall a little in love with her acceptance of things she doesn’t understand.”
Desperate times call for desperate measures, and the streets are an unforgiving place. So, can Dagne really turn down the offer of food and shelter from an unexpected source, even if it is a MC? Yet, what will they expect in return?
The unexpected can lead you on a path you never envisaged – towards a pair of brooding brown eyes. Dagne instantly recognises there is more to this man than meets the eye. She senses a calling from within that they are kindred, but nothing worth fighting for is ever easy. Can they learn to trust in one another enough to let down their guards?
“We’ve got the pieces, babe. We just need to figure out how they all work together.”
I loved this book. Was it easy to read at times? In a word, no. But it was real and honest, and hit me right in the gut. I’ve always believed that people come in to our lives for a reason. Hooch’s world had shifted of its axis and it took one woman, his fairy, to right his world again. Together they are stronger and can overcome unsurmountable odds.
“… he’s the place I’ve been searching for, the forever home that calls to my heart.”
