Hope is just getting settled in to her legal career, focused but a little torn about what type of lawyer she is going to be. She is settled in family law but gets roped into a last minute representation in a criminal file. Little does she know that this case will "Rock" her world.
There are so many ups and downs in the first segment of this series that I was on pins and needles wondering how this married woman was going to manage this steaming hot MC President and all that comes with him. I was very impressed by the way the author brought them together seamlessly when it comes to the backstory. Don't get me wrong, this does not end in an HEA, per say, but comes as close as a series can get when you need a cliff hanger to pull you into the next story. I have fallen head over heels for Rock, not only because of the way he is but his age is right up my alley. On to book two!
Hope met Rock in the court room when his attorney didn't show. The judge asked her to represent him. The attraction was instantaneous between them but she was married. A year later her husband dies and Rock waits another year and decides he is going to claim her as his own.
I highly recommend this series. Don't buy them one at a time because once you start reading,you won't want to stop until the series is done.
Rochlan "Rock" North, President of the Lost Kings motorcycle club, gets in trouble with the law yet again. With his lawyer unavailable, Hope Kendall gets drafted to represent him. Rock is instantly attracted to her--but she's married. Notably, he steps back and doesn't pursue her...until after her husband has died. But Hope is as straight-arrow as they come. Can she really accept life with Rock? A criminal life? What will happen when Rock's lifestyle affects Hope whether he wants it to or not?
Rock isn't a typical biker, and has morals that he refuses to compromise, and the way he and his club view and treat women is also quite a refreshing change from the genre standard.
The author says (in one of her book notes) that she was inspired by "Sons of Anarchy" and the 'what might have been' if Jax had been able to take the club legitimate much earlier on.
Hope Kendall is a successful lawyer living a moderately successful mundane life. She is married and works in family law. When the President of the Lost Kings MC, Rochlan "Rock" North ends up in the courtroom without a lawyer, Hope is called in to do the job. Rock is quite taken with Hope and despite his position in the MC, he decides that he wants to make Hope his. The only problem is that Hope isn't exactly available. Because she isn't a cheater, Rock must settle for keeping her in his life by getting her to work for the club.
When Hope continues to represent the men in the MC, she attracts the attention of a rival MC. Additionally, although Rock has tried to repress his feelings for Hope, he begins to obsess over being with her. The combination of Rock wanting Hope and that not being possible causes tension both physically and emotionally between the two. When Rock pushes Hope away to protect her, Hope takes a professional hit. However, when life deals Hope a fatal blow, Rock is ready, waiting, and more than willing to take care of her. As Rock and Hope come together, there is a beautiful dance of push and pull that made me smile, cry, and swoon the entire read!
Told in dual POV, Slow Burn is an absolute crowd pleaser! The pacing was perfectly set with just enough action and suspense to keep me on my toes. The emotional connection between Rock and Hope was beautiful and full of love and tenderness. Although Rock is a tough and dominant MC President, his love for Hope is deep and full of tenderness. The physical connection between these two was smoking hot, and it was so fun to see these two "opposites" become one! The supporting characters enhanced the story nicely, and this is one MC that I cannot wait to explore. This is not a "hardcore" MC Romance but the story of two people who fall in love that is a part of an MC.
Overall, Slow Burn is a must read for contemporary romance fans who love motorcycles, dominant men, and strong female characters. With light action and plenty of steam, Autumn Jones Lake blew me away with her smart writing and the beautiful moments she created between both Hope and Rock and the brothers of the LOKI will stay with me forever! I am completely taken with this series and now that I have discovered her work I will be devouring every word!
