Sheila grew up in the MC. Adopted by a biker family she was always just another Brother. She’s trained for High Security and moves with the Princes when they take their new town and place within the MC Chapter. As a jack of all trades, Sheila is the Princes go to Brother. She gets the job done and can comfort the victims when needed. To her Club she’s invaluable. To Sheila it’s just another day. Seeing everyone around her growing up and moving on, she realizes her past may be holding her down. When her past threatens to take the job she loves and Club she would give her life for, she jumps at the chance for help. Going it alone isn’t easy, but she’s Sheila.
Jax left Family Security with the MC when a teenage girl started showing interest in him. He knew it was only a matter of time before he lost control with her and put his life on the line. Badass Bikers are known for doling out justice their way. Seeing her on the list for the new Club he figures five years is long enough. It’s time to grab a taste of that forbidden fruit, that is, if she doesn’t kill him first.
I have to say that this series is just getting better and better.
Enforcer has a lot to love about it. First up, one of the top shooters for the MC is a young woman making her way just fine in a man’s world. When it comes to team leaders of the MC high security, she is the cream of the crop, second only to Jesse which made my heart smile. What I loved the most, though, was when Sheila learned the hard way that even the toughest of the tough can fall, all of her brothers stood behind her so she knew they had her back even when their efforts to help her heal didn’t work as intended.
I’ve always admired Sheila. Originally a foster kid she was adopted by Tiny and Nancy. They raised her to be smart, skilled, and unbelievably tough. As part of the second generation of the MC, she’s not one of the kids with any freaky abilities but she’s a protector who’s built to keep her family and the MC safe. Breaking through the traditions of the MC world to become the first woman who rides in defense of the MC, she set one hell of an example. In a previous book, Sheila was kidnapped and raped and really hasn’t allowed herself to heal from that, no matter how she presents herself to her MC family.
Jax was perfect although I do wish we’d known more about him. He waited a long time for Sheila and just when he thought he could make his move all hell broke loose and she ended up hurt. Waiting even longer killed him, but he knew she was worth it, even if she wasn’t so sure. He gave her everything she needed, including treating her like a woman in every way no matter how tough she acted. Even when she was on the job, he gave her what she needed, never making her feel like he thought she shouldn’t be doing it.
I loved that no matter what Sheila or Jax asked or needed from each other, they were “all in” and gave it. No matter how many trials and tribulations they faced, and there were many, they handled it with strength and care. My one little issue with them was they both showed far more patience with a certain MC member than I thought they should have.
Just like every other book in this series, the action was gritty and OTT, but there was also lots of humor and sexy times to offset it. The kids were cute but I do have to say, being constantly told how adorable they were grated on my last nerve.
I think I’m finally figuring out what I like so much about this series. The men are alpha to their core but they love their women, put them first, and not only support them, but they celebrate the strength their women show. I just eat that up.
