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.

Wow! Fantastic Story!

A truly captivating, well written story of falling in love! Excellent character development!

Loved the friendship, banter, and the overall easiness all the characters interacted with each other. This was a refreshing change of pace from the stories that have all the heat, attraction, and hot sex from the very beginning, to more of a touching, emotional story of slowing falling in love, learning to trust, letting someone in, and surviving.

I was soooo looking forward to book two until I saw all the negative reviews. Hummm, I can't visualize the character I just read about against what some of the reviews are leading too for the next book? Will have to think on it some before purchasing? But then again.... who am I kidding, I loved this story, and know I will listen to the other books in the series! :-)

As usual, narration was awesome! Mason always does a great job!

Well worth the time invested in listening to story! Credit or Sale!

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.

thoroughly enjoyed!

Straight off the bat I'm going to recomend that hopefully Ms' West continues with this narator as he's just so easy to listen to. I've a bunch of audio books in my collection but only a very small few are voiced by male voices which is a shame. This gentleman was mindful/careful with how he read the female parts of the story by NOT hitching his voice to rediculous levels which can sound worse that a female trying to pass off a male character. I far prefer if narators read the book, express the emotions, tell the take as it's punctuated and no more. This guy to my ear did that with only the bare slightest inflection in his tone when reading the female parts.

He has an amazing voice and when put with a great story youre in for a fabulous listening experience.

The story I've read multiple times, is a favourite of mine so hearing it read by a male has only served to maintain my preference for male readers.

very very much a recommended story and audio.

Read and listened to it three times!

Read this book a couple of times a while ago and when I found the audio I had to have it. The characters are great, I love the banter between the boys and the 'sass', I laughed out loud several times. You do get odd looks when you're walking down the street snorting with laughter. Makes me not mind walking to work quite so much.

Great book

I loved this story so much. Dahlia west please release more audio books you are awesome. I loved mason Lloyd as the narrator.
The story line had me hooked from the beginning, chris(shooter) was so sweet with Sarah and the amount of time it took to build there relationship works well. I really liked the other boys stories that start to unravel and couldn't wait to hear each of there stories in follow up books in the series.
After listening to all the books I have to recommend this audio book, the only one that I couldn't 100% relate to was tex (book 2) it was good but it was too much bed room dormants for me.
