From New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando comes the latest in the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series featuring a red-hot romance and plenty of mystery!
Ranger is at a crossroads: he has a chance to leave the motorcycle club and do something else with his life—but he keeps getting dragged back. When the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club asks for his help, Ranger agrees, not only because it is hard to say no to them, but also because he has a vested interest.
A woman is missing.
And Ranger knows her.
The Wind Dragons aren’t the only ones hoping this girl can be found—on the hunt is Johanna Chase, a stubborn detective who won’t give up until the missing woman is found safe. She needs Ranger to navigate the underground world of motorcycle clubs, and immediately, sparks fly. Ranger fights the attraction. He has no plans on going there, no matter how beautiful and badass she is. A biker and a cop? Ridiculous.
But the two of them soon realize that they’re in way over their heads, and now they have to trust each other in order to save her. With the WDMC and the police force at their back, it should be no problem, right?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Sometimes it’s time to say goodbye to a series
I thought the Wind Dragons previous book, Last Ride, would be the end of the road for me but when Crossroads came up, I just couldn’t help myself and requested a copy. I’ve liked the characters and invested some time into them over the past couple years so I had hopes that I wouldn’t be disappointed again. With hindsight being 20/20 I should have just passed it on by.
Jo, a police officer, and Ranger, a member of the Wind Dragons, had an unlikely connection. Ranger was friends with Jo’s cousin, Elizabeth, from way back, and now she’s disappeared under suspicious circumstances. For some convoluted reason, the Feds called Faye in to help find her and she recruits Ranger to work with Jo.
There is a lot going on in this scenario and not much of it is plausible. The reasoning of bringing in an outlaw biker was thin. Cameras were put in without warrants, suspects were interrogated by Ranger in a police station with threats to family involved, he was in on raids—none of it made a lick of sense to me since any arrest would have never made it to trial with this kind of nonsense.
As for Ranger and Jo, I didn’t connect with either of them. The investigation was interesting mainly because of the blatant inconsistencies with standard protocol. Once things wrapped up with that, I found myself skimming, especially after the ridiculousness of the fight they had. I almost DNF’d at that point but I was so close to the end, I soldiered on.
Once the resolution to their last relationship hurdle was revealed I kind of wished I’d DNF’d it. It didn’t work for me at all, especially considering the huge plot hole it caused that had me rolling my eyes.
For me, this ended up being an extremely disappointing read and once again I’m calling it my Last Ride with the Wind Dragons. I’m determined to stick with my decision this time.
