A member of the Insurgents MC, Wheelie is a chick magnate. Having a ripped body, mesmerizing tats, and a boyish grin, he can have any woman he wants. Except for one: Sofia. Ever since he laid eyes on her, he was taken in by her sparkling eyes, her sweet laugh, and her pretty face.
There’s just one very big problem: she belongs to another Insurgent.
He knows that means she’s off-limits, but he can’t get her out of his mind.
The memory of their kiss consumes him. He now knows how soft and perfect she is.
Pursuing her will get him kicked out of the brotherhood, and the club is his life. He can’t betray another brother even if he’s a cruel, arrogant jerk. He has to be strong, but the more time he spends with Sofia the more tempting it is to cross the line.
Sofia can’t get the handsome biker out of her mind. Married to Tigger, she is unhappy and tired of his cruelty and manipulation. She longs to be in the strong arms of Wheelie, but she knows what the consequences are for him if they give in to their desire.
Tigger made Sofia his old lady years ago and she knows he will never let her go. If she ever leaves him, she has no doubt that he will kill her. He’s told her that more times than she can count. Is she willing to risk her life and Wheelie’s in order to be happy?
Wheelie’s fortitude is waning, and he wants nothing more than to claim Sofia and make her his even if that means going against another brother. Will he be able to turn his back on the Insurgents MC without any regrets?
Then a secret from her past comes forward and challenges their love to the max. Can love and protect Sofia in spite of what he has learned? And with Tigger looming, can Sofia and Wheelie get their happily ever after?
The Insurgents MC series are standalone romance novels. This is Wheelie’s story. This book contains violence, abuse, strong language, and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. HEA. No cliffhangers. 18+.
Review by Kathy
I almost didn't like this book, almost because of the situation between Tigger and Sofia and thinking that no MC would allow this behavior to happen (at least in these books). However, I pressed on because the story line was really intriguing, beginning with the story of Wheeler's sister and her abusive marriage. Now, years after the death of his sister by the hands of her husband, Wheelie's dilemma is that he has eyes for the beautiful and sweet Sofia, but she belongs to another brother of the MC. He doesn't let things get away from him and keeps his distance, but he knows how Tigger treats her and despises the brother for it. But it isn't his place to say or do anything. It's their rule that no brother can have another brother's old lady.
This story line broaches the topic of domestic abuse and focuses on not only the victims, but also on the abusers. One, a brother of the Insurgents MC, another, the murderer of Wheelie's sister, another...the father of the man who killed Wheelie's sister. It shows the vicious cycle of not only the abuser, but how the victim can also teach her daughter how to be a victim as well. Someone has to break the cycle!
These characters are very well written and quite complex. Wheelie is the handsome and sweet but bad ass biker who lost his sister years ago. Guilt for not having ended the man before he ended her life along with the hatred for that man is carried inside of him, and is vow to end that life carries itself within him as well. Sofia has had a hard beginning in life, being the daughter of an abusive father, watching him beat her mother for years until she was able to leave home with the man she thought would love and take care of her. That is until she became the very victim she watched growing up. Tigger is slime. Pure and simple slime. He beats his wife and cheats on her, throwing those women in her face. He belittles her, he makes sure she has no friends and has cut her off from all of her family and the few friends she did have. Only because of the President's rule about all old ladies attending family get together's does Tigger not mark her so that it is visible to the club. He is being watched, but not closely enough.
This is a great story and one that will have you fearing for Sofia and cheering for her and Wheelie, hoping that finally, love will prevail and give her the life that she truly deserves. I highly recommend this book.
