He never meant to hurt her.
Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty—a loyalty that’s tested when he’s caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.
Melanie Tucker may have had a rough start, but along the way she’s learned to fight for her future. She’s escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can’t forget. It all started out so innocently—just a series of letters to a lonely man in prison. Friendly. Harmless. Safe.
Now Painter Brooks is coming home… and Melanie’s about to learn that there’s no room for innocence in the Reapers MC.
Not gonna lie, this was my least favorite book in the series, but I think that had a lot to do with the fact that I was not a big fan of Painter's to begin with. He had been in the previous books as this kind of loner jerk who never really allowed anyone too close. Not that the guys are all cuddly and sweet, but this fool took it to a whole new level.
I won't give anything away other than to say that I liked Melanie a lot but had I been her, I would have cut my losses. Sometimes getting the bad boy is just not worth it. She is a strong character with a good heart and a good sense of right and wrong, but if you are worried about the risks of doing illegal things, perhaps being with a biker is a bad idea, just saying.
All in all a decent book, just not as good as the first one.
I give this 3 lipsticks!
