Blurb:

If you love the motorcycle romances of Joanna Wylde and Julie Ann Walker, don’t miss Violetta Rand’s irresistible novel about a sexy-as-sin biker who tempts a good girl to go bad.

Lang Anderson may be the new leader of the Sons of Odin motorcycle club, but his personal life is in shreds. He’s struggling to take care of his three young sisters in the wake of tragedy, while rumors of drug dealing within his ranks jeopardize everything he’s built. The last thing he needs is another distraction—like a bar brawl over a woman—but Lang is a sucker for a damsel in distress. And this one gets him roaring like a finely tuned engine.

High school guidance counselor Lily Gallo is no fender bunny. So why can’t she get Lang off her mind? Lily’s head says the rugged, rough-and-tumble biker who came to her aid is bad news. Her body begs to differ. But when Lang’s troubled kid sister walks into her office, Lily’s determined to help, even if it puts her in the crossfire of a gang war. On a crash course with danger and desire, Lily partners up with Lang to fight for his family—and for love.

NetGalley sent me a review copy.

Lily is running away from her mom & dad and their impending Divorce. She takes a job in Texas, where everything is bigger, even egos. There she meets Lang, a MC Prez, at a bar, where he rescues her from other MC. He's doing the best he can to raise his 3 little sisters after the death of their parents. But he is struggling with Maya. The school set up a counselor for Maya, it happens to be Lily. Lang can't get Lily out of his head, he wants her, just as bad as she wants him.




Lang tries to be a badass, but he seems fake, like he doesn't really want to be there. Lily, she annoyed me after awhile. Lang schooled her on MC old ladies, yet she still got pissy about it. If you want the man, you take the entire package. Not bits and pieces and what works for you. 

I liked this book, but there wasn't enough climax, both sexually and plot. My heart never jumped up to my throat in terror. And my heart never raced with the sex scenes, they were glossed over. Where other less important things were given depth, like the step mom's engagement ring. I know we like to keep things up to the reader to use their imagination, but I felt like enough wasn't given. Did it take away from the story? No. But it didn't help either. The two things that happened, one to Maya and one to Lily, seemed like no big deal. I expected a war. I expected Lang to throttle the person on his own.
