A tragedy of epic proportions connects Dover and Emerson. Dover’s sister was Emerson’s best friend and was kidnapped and brutally used and murdered by a serial killer when she was nine years old. For Emerson, it meant her parents made a prisoner out of her with their need to be overprotective of her. This caused her to leave home as soon as she could. For Dover, it meant a lifetime of guilt since he felt responsible for his baby sister’s death, eventually causing him to leave too. Emerson ended up a tattoo artist, Dover ended up a member of the Devil’s Due, meting out vigilante justice whenever he can.
I had a hard time with Emerson. I can’t imagine the horror of being nine years old and having your friend brutally murdered. I also can’t imagine still wallowing in your misery years later. It was like no healing ever took place for her, even after she escaped her mother’s smothering ways.
I did understand Dover. He let what happened to his sister shape his life but in what could be considered constructive ways. First, he became a cop and then when he realized how often justice falls down on the job, he became a vigilante. Although still broken because of his crushing guilt, he was at least trying to make the best of a bad situation.
I am firmly in the camp of being just fine with insta-love books as long as it’s done right. I’m not sure Emerson and Dover fell in that category. The chemistry was there but these two had so much baggage and so much antagonism towards each other at first, it just didn’t seem believable to me.
A lot of coincidences needed to be looked over in this book. A big one is that Dover, Emerson, and the killer all end up in the same town. Another is that Emerson just happens to end up being mentored by a man who Dover’s MC considers a good friend, if not a father figure. I found myself having to suspend belief too many times which was a disappointment.
I found the members of Dover’s MC interesting even if they all had a habit of saying things that sounded stolen from fortune cookies. Don’t get me wrong, bikers can definitely get deep, but these guys could have passed for biker monks with seriously foul mouths. I had to make a conscious decision to find this funny instead of annoying.
I thought In the Red was a decent read with an interesting plot. With more character development and time to really flesh things out, I think this would have moved to the really good read level.

What an amazing start this book was for a new series. As soon as I started to read the prologue I was completely hooked. This book deals with dark and harsh situations, ones that left me reeling and left me completely broken. But through the darkness in this book there is also so much beauty and promise in the form of love. When family, friends, neighbors and a town are left with more questions than answers after a heinous and shocking crime, no one would ever be the same. Darkness, emptiness and anger are what is left of a brother and best friend, trying to move on in life, never forgetting that tragic day.
After the loss of his little sister Dover (Collector) has never been the same. He lives with so much guilt from that tragic day. The day that he was left to watch her and he failed. It broke my heart when he would have flashbacks of their past as children. There is pain so deep and profound within Dover that it bleeds off the pages. He tried to live his life but never forgot his sister, and never truly was at peace. Never knowing what really happened has left a permanent hole in his heart and his life. Years later he is part of a Nomad chapter of the Devil’s Due MC. Collector and the 5 members of the MC travel the country with one goal, to serve justice on all the unanswered crimes. Collector has never returned to his home town. That is until a case brings him back.
After losing her best friend Emerson’s world crumbled. She not only had to mourn the loss of her best friend, but her parents also lived in fear of the unknown and her life and home changed drastically. It is understandable the level of fear her parents lived during that time, but Emerson was literally a prisoner. Once she is able to leave home Emerson, leaves and never looks back. She adopts a new name (Sonnie) and has a talent as a tattoo artist. She befriends a man who takes her in and becomes her adoptive father. I loved the little things Emerson constantly does in honor and remembrance of her best friend. Emerson has a tough exterior but you can tell the past dictates her life. When her past comes walking through the tattoo shop her first instinct is to run.
Dover was so perfect for me. He is damaged and he knows it but seeing Emerson again sparks something in him, something that has been missing for years. I love that he is a total alpha when it comes to Emerson. He knows they share the same pain and loss, he knows she is hiding herself from the world, but he is not letting her hide from him. Emerson was an amazing female lead, feisty and strong and did she did not back down. Emerson sees the guilt in Dover’s eyes and she wants to help ease his pain but she never expected to fall for him in the process. Will Dover and Emerson, finally bring Raleigh’s killer to justice? Can they find peace and love in each other?
The Devil’s Due member’s each have their own story to tell and are vowing justice for something that happened to them. I really loved the sense of loyalty and brotherhood they shared. Their friendship and bond help them seek justice for those who never were able to get closure. Dover and Emerson each have to fight through their pain and find a way to seek justice for Raleigh while making peace with her loss. This book is extremely touching, some of the topics detailed were hard for me at times but those parts delivered an incredible profoundness and sense of realness in this book. The characters and plot were written so well, and this story touched my heart in more ways than one. I really enjoyed the first installment in this series and look forward to seeing each member get the justice they deserve.
