MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:
As a reader obsessed with MC-themed romances I was thrilled to finally become acquainted with the Four Horseman MC and the sexy and compelling men and women who inhabit this exciting and sometimes stormy world. Though I've not read the previous installments in this series I had no trouble getting quickly caught up in the dangerous past and unsettled future for the Club. Once I reached the final page I couldn't wait to purchase the rest of the series as I became captivated by the exhilarating and dangerous world Ms. Rayne crafted.
After deadly events long ago left their Club in ruins, current President Captain seems to have the Club flourishing with men surrounding him who he knows he can count on. Beside him throughout the years offering support has been the older woman, and wife of the Club's long dead President, Eddie. From the moment he saw Eddie he wanted her but Club honor held him back and had him marrying another but never giving up his attraction for her. He's waited patiently for the right time to claim her and after being goaded by his Brothers that time is now. It will be a difficult battle to earn her love though as he'll be fighting the memories she has of her dead husband as well as threats from rivals to the Club. It all leads to moments of unrelenting sexual tension as well as pulse pounding and dangerous encounters that bring him and Eddie closer together despite all the reasons why she thinks they shouldn't find HEA. Captain's a super sexy guy full of guilt over the past and worries over the Club's future. He was only a Prospect when everything went so wrong for the Club and is determined not to let it happen again, but with their ongoing war with the Raptors and with an upcoming visit from the FBI, he's on edge. He's always been drawn to Eddie but knew he couldn't have her, even now he's hesitant to claim her as he doesn't want it seen as a betrayal to the Club. Being with her brings moments of peace and happiness, along with a fun, flirty, and playful side that he can't show as President. I loved seeing him and Eddie together, their flirty banter and crackling sexual chemistry, and found their older woman/younger man connection believable and refreshing.
Eddie may no longer be the official Queen Bee of the Club but she's a big part of its past and its future as the mother of current members. Though she was devoted to her dead husband Joker she was always flattered by Captain's flirtations and couldn't help finding him sexy. Now that she's free to accept his affections though she's torn over feelings of betrayal to Joker's memory as well as their age difference. Her willpower will be tested as Captain unleashes a sensual onslaught that any woman would find hard to resist. When her lucrative moonshine business captures the attention of rivals it will put her in extremely close quarters with Captain which allows them to explore years of pent-up feelings. Once the dust settles nothing will ever be the same!
This was an exciting thrill-ride from the first page to the last. Though it's the fourth book in the series it definitely stands on its own as it nicely balances the sweet and sexy romance with Club machinations that has readers discovering what brought the MC down and what dangers loom on the horizon. The main couple is immensely likable as they engage in their sensual battle of wills with a believable connection that's been years in the making. Surrounding them is an equally likable and diverse cast of secondary characters that keep the action rolling along and that have me excited for the future as their personal lives play out amidst a background of increasing danger. With an exciting cliffhanger ending readers will be left counting down the days until we return to Hell in this exhilarating and sensual series!
My rating for this is an A-
*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
Cynthia Rayne is the author of the Amazon best-selling Four Horsemen MC series. Her first erotic book was written when she was thirteen. Of course, the most risqué scene involved kissing, but it was the talk of her middle school! She is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in education and writes whenever she can. In her spare time, she enjoys dating, shopping, reading way too many romance novels, and drinking a truly obscene amount of coffee.
