Genre: MC Club Romance
Recommend if you like: This was my first MC book of its kind but it gave me Madison Kate/Hades vibes without the RH.
This book hit the ground running and dove right into the action (and steam) between Krista and Jakob. I also loved that the mystery kicked off right away as well. This story and the characters really suck you in while there are biker elements I feel like it was tastefully done and had more of a military service focus vs a lot of “dirty biker” filler elements I have seen in other works.
Allen did a great job in filling in backstory all the while keeping the plot moving quickly, there was never a dull moment. It was hard to put this book down and I finished in just a few weekdays. While the ending wrapped up nicely for the current storyline with no cliffhanger you can see where there is more opportunity for additional stories in the world. It was also a little extra fun for me being a Texan. I recommend for anyone who likes a fun and fast paced romance, even if you are not typically an MC fan.
Jakob Larson is going to be the death of me.
That’s what I think every time he strides into my bar.
The Kings of Kearny run this small Texas town, and Jakob is their chief enforcer.
The Viking, they call him. He’s a criminal. As dangerous as he is sexy. The kind of man who makes my inner cavewoman sit up and take notice.
Him big. Make strong babies. Bring home mammoth for dinner.
I’m ready to indulge her desires, but just for one night. Unfortunately, Jakob has other plans.
Someone in town is breaking one of the cardinal rules set by the leader of The Kings. And Jakob thinks they’re using my grandmother’s nursing home as a front for their illicit activities.
Now I’m neck-deep in trouble with him, and every time I think I’ve figured out what’s really going on, Jakob reveals another piece of the puzzle.
I need to figure out how far I’m willing to go to protect this town. How far I’m willing to go with Jakob.
Because if I fall for him, there’s no going back. No hope for a peaceful ending.
But Jakob is the kind of man who makes me think that peaceful is overrated, and that descending into darkness with him could lead to something even better than a Happily Ever After.
