Isaak “Ice” Koval is on a club mission when he sees a woman who stops him dead in his tracks. Soleil is a sweet, sexy, girl-next-door type. She’s an innocent who should be nowhere near the rough-and-ready world of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club. But Ice knows Soleil belongs with him—and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her.
After a life of drifting from one thing to the next, Soleil Brodeur is determined to take control of her life. When her breakup with her manipulative fiancé turns ugly, Soleil searches out the stranger who offered her a lifeline and ends up in a Las Vegas biker bar where she meets a gorgeous, dangerous man straight out of her most secret fantasies.
High on adrenaline, she finds herself falling faster than she thought possible. But Soleil knows little about the territory she’s stumbled into, and even less about what it really means to be Ice’s woman.…
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Torpedo Ink is a series that you can’t really say you enjoy reading because the history that the Torpedo Ink members share is beyond ugly and we get up close and personal with it. Maybe too up close and personal, so consider yourself warned.
Based on the past books, I went in expecting to be confronted with Ice’s past and I figured there would be a lot of edge of your seat, gritty action as he and his brothers took down the worst of the worst in all kinds of violent ways. I also knew I’d be treated to a fair amount of sexy times too. But this installment of the series blew the doors off the charts with the sheer amount of kink. I’m not talking hard core BDSM, but this couple likes to get their freak on with witnesses, and they did it every chance they got.
The good news is that the sex scenes were smoking and led me to backtrack and highlight passages. But, there were so many, no matter how good they were I ended up skimming pages to move the story along. Yes, hard to believe but there is such thing as too much of a good thing.
What saved this were the suspense plots. As much as these boys resented what we turned them into, they had no problem taking care of business. Here, there were two things going on— chasing down pedophile rings and taking care of Soliel’s crazy ex.
I do have to say, the more information we got about just what Soleil’s ex was involved in and how much he and his group of his cronies had gotten away with, the more far-fetched the whole thing was. Thankfully for me, it was like watching a big blockbuster action film. No matter how ridiculous the bad guys were, you couldn’t help but want to stand up and cheer as they go down.
As for Ice and Soleil, obviously they have a ton of chemistry. Ice’s history was heartbreaking, and I wish I could say that Soleil had helped him heal, but I can’t. There just wasn’t enough substance there for me to get a good feeling that they’ll make it in the long run. I have hopes though.
I struggled how to rate this one. I can say I stayed up ‘til the wee hours turning the pages. That alone makes it an above average read. But, it had issues, and that’s why I can’t give it a top rating.
