The course of true love never did run smooth. The biker and the Anarchist. It's never going to be a fairytale romance, and yet...
Mouse believes in something bigger than herself. She believes in standing up for what's right. She believes in battling against corruption, consumerism, commercialism and greedy corporations. She believes in fighting hard. Her whole life has been about fighting.
Nitro has returned to the country of his birth to escape his crazy ex. He lives for the moment. He's a simple guy; a fast bike, cold beer, and a warm woman are all he needs. Life is one big party; all you need to do is rev the throttle and see where the road takes you.
They say opposites attract, and for Mouse and Nitro, that couldn't be more true. Their chosen families are poles apart. But Nitro has fallen hard, and he's not the type of guy who takes no for an answer...
The events in Itinerant Child run parallel to those in Legacy, and some of the same characters do make an appearance. However, this can be read as a stand alone.
They say opposites attract but not how they manage to stay together. Mouse and Nitro’s names are two you wouldn’t pair up, and yet together it’s obvious they are meant to be together. The majority of the book , though, they spend getting their head around how to juggle opposing lifestyles and somehow continue to build a relationship. Both are passionately determined people neither being open to change but with a connection that is a force in itself. The more they get to know each other, the more they feel incomplete apart.
Nitro and Mouse have a hurdle or two between them becoming a couple. The different lifestyles they lead together with the baggage they both carry from their past. Mouse’s insecurities and fears stifle anything long term. Fortunately, Nitro distracted her in a good way with his joking and indifference to anything other than what was important to her.
Putting aside the barriers Mouse and Nitro experienced, the story manages to incorporate a lot of light hearted moments and bring to light to the similarities they shared. Finding their place in the world and doing so as a couple was what made their story work. What was interesting was the way their friends / chosen families supported and guided them along the way.
A bonus to this story was having Nitro’s POV to the events that occurred in Legacy. Both Legacy and Itinerant run parallel to each other time wise but are located in separate countries. There is a lapse where Nitro returns to the States and spends time with The Freaks to represent the UK chapter at a brother’s funeral.
I Thoroughly enjoyed Itinerant and getting to know Mouse and Nitro. The epilogue was OK, but it had a wrap-up air to it, or maybe I just wanted to read more. Either way, this is one of my favourite series with each book being 4 or 5 stars!
What I struggled with:
*How not dealing with a hospital went? I went back and checked twice, did I miss something?
*Steve and his feelings towards Mouse
*The cover – I am petrified of mice (silly, I know, but I struggle to look at them LOL)
What I loved:
*Nitro’s humour and confidence
*The visit back to the old church and the way that panned out
*Giving Scarlet a chance, could Carter and her story be next?
