Cam Farrell, president of the Moroad Motorcycle Club, struggles to adjust to living on the outside after spending the last eighteen months in prison. Pressured to confess to his part in the crime of bringing his son into the club, he must make drastic changes to stay ahead of the law and prove to Christina he will never leave her again. The noose tightens as he faces the possibility of losing everything he's worked for within the Moroad MC. Can he save his club, his woman, his son, and his life?
Some people in Federal call Christina insane for loving a criminal, but Cam's presence has always provided her with an inner strength she's found nowhere else. Christina's worries increase when Cam arrives home more hardened, more violent, and more determined to continue the life of crime that has dictated his life. Caught between her fear of losing him and forcing Cam to fulfill his promises, Christina must face the truth. Love has no boundaries and some things are better off staying buried.
Where to begin…
Another tough one to rate and read. Moroads MC members are as far from law-abiding as they come, with the brotherhood bond between them only as good as the day they’re together. And although they were solid, there wasn’t that feeling of a tight brotherhood family that I’ve come to expect out of an MC. For Life picks up 18 months after Wrapped Around Him ended View Spoiler » with him just about to be released from jail « Hide Spoiler.
“Seriously?” She sat up fully in bed. “I tell you the biggest thing one person can say to the other and you say, “I know”. He buttoned up his jeans, pulled his shirt on, leaned down, and kissed her. “Yeah”
Cam and Christina’s relationship was not your average white picket fence arrangement. His attitude had me peering over my glasses and glaring at the unbelievable tripe that he shared. He took alpha possessiveness to a level that I would hazard to suggest was more in line with a mental health issue rather than him finding the woman for him. His behaviour came across as not right in my books, so my alarm bells went off when Christina who seemed to be comfortable being with him commented on some of the other brothers as being creepy. That took my comfort level for her right out the door and I hoped she would do just that. Normally there is something seductive about the devil-may-care attitude of an alpha but that didn’t come through for me at all. Why Christina continued her ‘chosen’ life as normal was beyond me. I really hoped that she would see her chances when they were there and listen to the offer of a better life when it was on offer (well hinted at being on offer IMO).
If an outsider witnessed her, Cam, Jeremy this morning at the house, getting along, teasing, talking, they’d realize the three of them were like any other normal family.
Jeremy added an element to the story that intrigued me and I hope that he will be the feature of the next book in this series. I could only hope that he and Tiff get together because I could see the opportunity for goodness there that may spill over to others. The combination of Christine, Cam and Jeremy when they were playing happy families saves the book for me. It was not smooth sailing but it added the levity that I needed while reading about some pretty grim situations. Christine and Jeremy have made this series for me with Merk cruising in on a close third.
Good on Debra Kane for writing a series that unsettles me but has me wanting to read on, especially when the main character, Cam doesn’t appeal to me. The teaser chapter at the end of For Life was the lure that will have me adding the next book in the Moroad MC series to the elusive TBR stack when it’s released!
What I enjoyed:
- Jeremy and Christina becoming ‘family’
- Cam stepping up in his way to being a caring father to Jeremy
- Merc trying to do the right thing in his eyes
What I struggled with:
- Cam’s attitude to keeping his woman, family and life in order and his rules
- That both main characters seemed to remain imprisoned regardless of where they slept at night
- The house ‘guests’ that he welcomed into their house
- The treatment of Merc
