Breezy Simmons was born into a ruthless motorcycle club—and now that she’s out, she’s never going to be that girl again. But when her past catches up with her, Breezy must go to Sea Haven to seek out the man who almost destroyed her. The man who chose his club over her and left her feeling used and alone.
As vice president of Torpedo Ink, Steele is ride or die for the brothers he lived through hell with. He never thought he’d find something as pure as his feelings for Breezy, or that keeping her safe would mean driving her away with cruel words that turned her love for him to ash.
Now, Steele won’t let her walk away twice. He’ll do whatever it takes to make Breezy his woman again—especially when he learns the real reason she came to him for help, and that the stakes are higher than he ever could have imagined…
I typically don't like stories where the couple already has a romantic backstory. I like to see the characters fall in love and learn about each other. So, I was feeling a bit blah about Vengeance Road, the beginning of the story drew me in immediately.
Breezy was determined and strong without being pushy or annoyingly headstrong. She knew the dangers in what she was going to do but because she had so much to lose she had no choice. After being abused by her father's club for years, she refuses to spend the rest of her life in another club where she doesn't come first with the man she loves. I loved that she didn't just roll over and happily join Torpedo Ink because of Steele and that he had to work to get her to trust him and his club.
Steele had a few surprises to deal with and it was nice to see that he didn't blame Breezy for her choices (or at least not for long), but instead wondered what he could have done differently so that she would have trusted him sooner.
Feehan can write some steamy scenes, but I definitely see a new hotter trend with this series. It fits the characters and their story arcs in a way wouldn't work with her other series.
