The blood of their enemies coats the leather of their cuts and a trail of bodies lie in their wake, but the Forsaken Motorcycle Club isn't done yet. Carlo Mancuso still needs to pay for his sins. Nobody knows that more than Ian Buckley, the Treasurer for Forsaken.
Ian prefers his pleasure mixed with pain and he's only ever at peace when he's doling out justice. Convinced that he's too unstable and sadistic to take an old lady, he keeps his trysts, like all of his relationships, brief and anonymous. But with his club at war, and the stakes being so personal, Ian's feeling the events around him more deeply than he expects.
Mindy Mercer is the sweet daughter of Fort Bragg’s most respectable cop. At least that’s how the town sees her. Very few people know the Mindy who hides her tracks and battles her cravings by lying to everyone around her. She thinks she has control of her addiction until she suffers an attack that leaves her searching for a way out of her own personal hell.
Mindy has never been more desperately in need of a savior and Ian has never seen a more beautifully destroyed creature in his life. Their attraction is intense, but their damage is extreme. Some scars never heal, and some people never get better.
Love is never more painful than when it can kill you.
I have been intrigued by Ian since Ride, and even though I've crushed on Ryan and Duke in each of their stories respectively, I could not wait for Ian's story...and Omigee did I fall hard. Mindy is one lucky lady, and deservedly so. After everything she has been through, I was so happy to see her overcome her fears and finally find happiness in the chaos that led to the tragic events that broke her...and for her to finally get justice, even if it was in the Forsaken way.
It was exciting to see Ian and Mindy fall for each other. There was a definite chemistry that turned explosive whenever they were near one another, and as things progressed the HOTTER they became.
I will admit that Mindy's "therapy" was a little surprising, but I could also understand why she felt the way she did and her particular need for something more intense; Ian was the perfect men to deliver just that. They were meant for each other.
This book was everything I've come to expect from Emery and this fierce, no-holds-barred series. It was gritty, real and spectacular.
