I'd like to end this with "That is all" but maybe I should give you a few reasons as to why you should get this book.
If you like a gritty (no pun, promise) MC romance... this one might not be for you. I found it held more contemporary themes with slight suspense than a full-out, bunch of bastards on the back of hogs, MC romance type of story. But if you like a romance with a gritty (intended that time) man who has harsh, sharp edges, who has been done wrong, who loves his son above all else, and who isn't expecting love but when he finds it, he fights for it (even if it doesn't always seem that way to 'her'), this is your book.
Gabby's very first impression of Blake isn't the best, but her reasoning was completely justified. I loved watching her talk to him like he was one of her pupils during their initial meetings. But like the badass biker he is, Blake takes her disdain and simply growls and shows his teeth. It takes his kindergartener to truly bring these two together.
The Spartan's were a fun group of bikers; I found myself really enjoying this group. They're more than just bikers; they all have their 'real' lives outside of the club, making them easier to relate to. Blake, though... That man hides a few things behind his scruff and anger, but it's when he's completely open and vulnerable, in simply moments like Ash sleeping on his chest, that his full abilities as a great man are showcased. I absolutely fell in love with Blake throughout the book, and watching as Gabby slowly got glimpses of him, opened herself up to his world... I enjoyed her just as much.
The Spartans are fighting an oncoming battle against someone though. Add to that, Blake doesn't trust those who lie, and Gabby's holding some cards close to her chest... Just when you fall in love with the characters and their sweet, easy ways, the crux of if all will explode -- and rather than annoying me, that everything happens at once, I found it to be put into the romance formula just right.
I can't wait for the rest of these books to come out. 1, of course, for more glimpses of Blake, Gabby, and Ash, but also 2, because I love these people! There are some lines that need to be tied up still in the series, so I'm excited to watch those clean up some. Country is next; I loved Tucker and can't wait to watch him fall!
Gabby Morgan is running from her former life and pursuing her dream of being a kindergarten teacher.
Blake Mahone feels like he's carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. He's a single father trying to make ends meet and the president of the Spartan Riders.
There's so much more to this story, but other reviewers have already shared a lot. I'm keeping it simple. If you like MC romances, get this one! You won't regret it.
I was given an arc for an honest review but enjoyed it so much I purchased it!
