Publisher's Summary

Chase Halloway's father is the president of Atlas, the drug dealing motorcycle gang that terrorizes most of our desert town.
My stepfather turns out to be a rival drug dealer, and I'm pretty sure he killed my mom two years ago.
I'm not supposed to fall in love with Chase. He's not supposed to know I even exist.
But when he finds me, he can't let go.
And when I find myself in his arms?
I hold tight.
I have to.
Because if I don't, I might just die. With or without him.

4 Protective Star’s

In this book we meet Allie; she is a little naive, a lot sweet. She is under her stepfather’s thumb.
And all she wants to do is move to L.A. to be with her sister and maybe pursue acting. Only her stepfather won’t let her, so she takes it upon herself to stash the little bit of tip money she gets, in a very unique place.

We then meet Chase, this hunky dunky has the swagger you hear about. Chase is under his father’s thumb as well his father wants him to take over the MC when its time. Only Chase has dreams too and his involve L.A. oddly enough. He sets his sites on Allie the moment he sees her. Between the chemistry and his protective instincts he wants Allie to be his.

I loved the rant Allie had about men poor girl is so confused she doesn’t know how to deal with all her feelings and the attention she is getting.
Oh dang poor Allie.. Freaking “OUCH” that wipe out had to have hurt. I cringed just listening to it!!
Chase and Allie together just works, he is sweet and crass and she is innocent and sweet. They just fit.

“Don’t worry Allie; I’ll protect you, always.”

Oh you cliff-hangers I shake my hand at you!! Lol

I am no stranger to this narrator; I like her work so this book is not different. :)

Damn Shame

First impression: Finding Allie is my first introduction to Meli Raine, and I'm glad to have had the opportunity to experience Allie and Chase's story. The characters are interesting and likable. There is an instant attraction, but they're quite charming and sweet in that "young love" kind of way. There are serious obstacles and dramas they need to overcome, but they are optimistic…..

….CLIFFHANGER. Grrr…. Looks like this ONE book is going to be told in 3, 4-hour listens. Part 2 (released over 9 months ago) also ends in a cliffhanger, and the 3rd "book" isn't out at this time. Totally lame. 3 credits or $30+ for ONE 12-hour novel? Um…no. If the "trilogy" ever comes out as one anthology, then it MIGHT be worth A credit or cash. Breaking it down: Kristen Ashley's Chaos MC SERIES x 3 is totally worth 3 credits. Parts 1, 2 and 3 of A novel (ANY novel) is NOT worth 3 credits.

I fully appreciate the work it takes to write a novel and the fact that writers have a lot of their work stolen and often don't make a ton of cash. I'm cool with shorter novellas and even serials being put out as long as the story can be told in a shorter time, and the cash price is discounted to reflect the length of the listen. However, this trend of putting out a piece of a book and charging for a whole book just sucks, and I'm done with it.

Too bad. It started off great, and the writing was good, but this "trilogy" BS took it down to 1 star overall because I no longer care what happens next and am just annoyed that I have wasted my time. Sad.

Tanya Eby does a good job with Allie's youthful voice, and she also does a good job with various alpha-male bikers. She uses her tone and inflection to bring the story to life. Excellent job. Love her.

I received this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.
