This life isn’t one that I chose for myself.
Years spent as a daughter in the Dominion MC left me washed up and struggling to breathe. Life was never flowers and sunshine. It was gravel and dust, the trails of dirt left behind when the brothers tore out, floating up from the ground to hover in front of an angry, red sun.
I could never have imagined that a life sitting at rock bottom could get any worse, but it did.
Life is funny like that.
Just when you think things can’t get any more bleak, a shade is drawn leaving you staggering and blind – lost in a world of heartache and sorrow.
I met J.D. Brooks on the road and he swept me off my feet. Literally. But not in the way you might think.
He was both an angel and a demon.
He was the most vicious storm that ever darkened my life.
He was also my salvation.
Stripped from the hands that always held me back, I was released into a nightmare that would threaten everything I thought I knew about the crap hand I’d been dealt.
I thought I could never hate a man more than the one who stole me from the life I’d known.
And in our time together, he would teach me one important lesson:
That in the end, it doesn’t matter how our paths intersect, because when it comes down to the basic truth of our lives...
...we’re all stuck traveling down hard roads
Dark & Confronting…that’s enough to spark my interest! Hard Roads was very dark and hard to read at times, but if you hang in there the reward is a very moving story. The focus of this story, while on MC life, tends to be set away from the club and predominantly on the road as the title suggests.
Holly thinks she’s had it tough and seen it all but she has no idea. A heroine that doesn’t take a situation lying down and fights with everything she’s got. She’s grown up in the Dominion’s MC. After the death of her mother, her life changes and gives her the motivation to get out. Unfortunately, she finds herself going from one bad situation to another. To add to that she has a price on her head taking her idea of freedom to a distant hopeless dream.
Subhuman and straight out evil are terms that came to mind when reading her captors callousness and total disregard for others. What balanced this was that along the way her plight is taken to heart by one of her initial captors. Haunted by having been instrumental to the fact she was where she ended up, he sets out to make amends.
The epilogue threw me at the end, I was unsure how the final scene had played out and initially which person’s POV it was being told from. It did have a good solid ending with no cliff hanger
