Publisher's Summary

Chris "Shooter" Sullivan has returned to his hometown of Rapid City, South Dakota, to pick up the pieces of his life shattered by a roadside bomb in Iraq. He wants only to focus on holding what's left of his old unit together, running his garage where he builds custom bikes and cars, and pretending that his murdered father's motorcycle gang doesn't exist.
Hayley Turner is a young woman with her own traumatic past. Fresh off the bus from Nowhere, USA, all she wants is a job and a place to live until it's time for her to leave again. She doesn't want to make friends or enemies, least of all the ex-Army Ranger who obviously doesn't like her. She bristles under his watchful eye. He's even got her convinced that she's bad news.
But circumstances force two people who don't need anyone to need each other more and more. The more Chris gets to know Hayley, the harder it is to stay detached. And the more Hayley gets to know Chris, the more she realizes that she's been alone for so long, she might never recover from it.

Isn't it a real joy when an Author surpasses all your expectations and delivers a story that has so many loveable characters, describes them so well that you feel like you're friends with them all, creates a loyal loving brotherhood and then introduces a love interest for one of them. Well Dahlia West did that.... and so so much more.

Hayley is running - running from a Psychopath that had already caught her once, nearly killed her and has ruined her life.... and he is still free five years later. Now strong willed Hayley's a lonely drifter going from town to town until she reaches Rapid City where she's welcomed... but just not by everyone. Chris (aka Shooter) and his friends are all ex Army Rangers and he doesn't trust or believe this tiny Drifter who he calls Slick but he can clearly see that she's been damaged and needs help so he reluctantly offers her a place to stay. And, even though they are very aware of each other's presence, they bicker, verbally spar and hurl a lot of witty banter at each other before eventually the intensity of feelings spectacularly boils over into lust, passion and achingly tender and understanding touches. Which is then sweetly followed by tentative steps into a powerful relationship of respect, lots of sex, trust and love. But it's not all smooth sailing because, when the past comes knocking on her door, it's going to end in a dramatic and bloody conclusion.

Wow, this was so addictive and all-consuming with smooth clever witty dialogue between brothers-in-arms Shooter, Hawk, Easy, Tex and Doc who are a riot when together and slowly let Hayley into their inner circle and surround her with a protective and loving shield. Especially after she tries selflessly to help one of them by recounting her worst nightmare in front of them all... the night she lived through a traumatic and horrific event and she told it in such anger-filled vivid and heartbreaking detail which left them all in awe of her courage and strength of character. There was a good build-up to the romance with no insta anything, there was mystery, angst and some suspense at the end and there was a MC Club nearby with slight ties to Shooter and they forced him into a shady scene or two. A powerful love story that was born out of tragedy but blossomed into a funny, romantic, hot, tense at times, touching and beautiful love story.... and a group of loving friends willing to do whatever necessary for their fellow brothers.

Worth a credit? Dual POV's, great narration, addictive and humorous, lots of sex, romance, wonderful loving and interesting characters, some danger and drama, a HEA ending and could be a standalone listen.... what more can you ask for from a credit. This is a series to watch out for and definitely creditworthy.

Good... not AMAZING

This was good... I am actually pretty interested in book 2; however, I pick this up simply because of the rave reviews.... I must say... When I found out what happen to Sarah/Hiley...we dang... that was pretty shocking... and I see why she was so closed off... But the story kinda drag a bit in the middle... but honestly... I never push pause or stop... It was a straight thru listen... So yeah it was good... but not AMAZING as all the other reviews state... It was good... great even... but not AMAZING...

Well worth a credit or buy... Yes to a sale...

Narration was the best part... I love Mason Llyod... great narrator... SO yup... scoop this one up... Just remember... its good... not AMAZING...
