Book two of the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club. Someone has hacked past Brain’s firewalls and sold the MC’s information. Brain and Bash are on a mission to catch the hacker, find out who hired him, and then make him pay. Until Brain discovers the hacker is a woman, and just as smart as him. She’s so clever, he chases her a full week before he finally catches her. She’s the enemy, and yet his wolf wants to protect her from Bash. Worse, his wolf is beginning to decide he wants to claim her. This isn’t going to be pretty.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Holy cow! Brain was intense, dark and hard to read. It was an ugly story, but a good one. The darkness of it took me by surprise. There are triggers galore here since the entire story focuses around a woman getting past her PTSD with the help of a good man. What happened to Ice is recited in detail, not described as it happens. It was almost in report format which softens the blow a little, but not by much.
Ice’s story is heartbreaking, brutal, and shows how strong she was since she managed to function at all after what happened to her. Really, she was everything I want in a good biker book heroine. Brain was absolutely perfect but maybe a bit stalkish. There was obviously an insta-love thing going on, but it’s a paranormal so I’m good with that. I loved how patient he was with her, understanding about what she needed. Brain’s willingness to give up anything and everything to be with Ice and to help her heal endeared him straight onto my favorite biker book boyfriend list.
It was hard spending the first half of the book just absolutely furious with characters I’d previously liked. Especially Bash, since what he did was so cruel, no matter how angry he was with Ice about what happened. It will be interesting to see how or if the author redeems these characters in the future.
I loved this installment of the series and can’t wait to see what’s in store for The Rolling Thunder MC next.
