Cade and Dawn's relationship is tenuous at best. Dawn has suffered at the hands of a husband who is a sadistic biker who abused her during their marriage. Dawn managaged to get out but not without paying an extremely high price. Out of spite, her ex husband has taken her twin daughters and refuses her free access to them. In desperation Dawn has to bribe her sister-in-law, who is every bit as despicable as her brother, in order to have more time with her children. Despite being burned badly by the life of being involved with an outlaw biker Dawn can't resist the lure of Cade. Charming, self assured, and wickedly handsome her uses it all to keep Dawn from breaking it off with him completely.
Cade finding out who Dawn is connected to and how, as well as finding out about her daughters, ignites his protective instincts. I love a big bad biker who protects those he loves and won't let anyone or anything stop him from doing it. I also enjoyed that Cade not only lusted after and wanted to protect Dawn but he also showed her respect and consideration by not treating her as if she didn't have a mind or will of her own. Cade is dominant without being domineering and demeaning. I totally loved that.
BEYOND THE CUT is biker romance meets romantic suspense and incorporates the best of both genres. Grittiness, unrepentant aggressiveness, violence, steamy sexiness, and even a bit of tenderness flows through this well written story. Although this is book two in the series it can be read as a standalone.
**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**
SHE’S HOLDING ON TIGHT.
As a teen, Dawn ran from a life on the streets straight into the arms of Jimmy “Mad Dog” Sanchez, a biker who promised to be her knight in shining armor. But his love was just another cage. Years later, Dawn’s former life still has its hooks in her and she’ll do whatever it takes to break free. When Cade “Ryder” O’Connor, a member of a rival club, makes her an offer, Dawn finds herself in a different, hotter kind of trouble with one irresistible Sinner…
WILL HE GIVE HER THE RIDE OF HER LIFE?
Cade is an outlaw biker with allegiance to one thing and one thing only: The Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club. But when it comes to the stunningly sexy, fiercely independent Dawn Delgado, Cade finds himself…hungrier for more. Trouble is on Dawn’s heels and he wants to be the answer to her prayers, whether she wants him to be or not. What can’t be denied is the red-hot attraction between them. However, as they fall deeper, the danger rises and Cade may have to sacrifice it all…
“I can’t behave around you.” His voice dropped, husky and low. “Last time we were together—”
“Was the last time we will be together.” Disconcerted by the intensity of her feelings, she pulled away. “I had a good time with you, but I’m not interested in getting involved. I have my hands full with work, and the girls, and the custody fight.” She was good at building walls to protect herself. Even with him, she’d given her body but kept a lock on her heart.
At least, she thought she had, but when he leaned down and brushed his lips over hers, her betraying heart stuttered in her chest.
“You’re interested in getting involved with me,” he whispered. “Otherwise you wouldn’t have invited me to sleep in your bed. You think I’m hot.”
Dawn lifted an eyebrow. “Is this part of the seduction technique you use to lure sweet, sexy young things into your bed?”
He nuzzled her neck, feathering kisses along her jaw as one hand curved over her ass. She should push him away. Run. Hide. Pretend she didn’t enjoy having a badass biker whisper naughty words in her ear in the middle of the playground as he set her blood on fire. But she couldn’t move. Couldn’t speak. Instead, she closed her eyes and went along for the ride, tilting her head to the side to give him better access.
“That’s my girl,” he murmured against her ear. “She’s sweet. She’s sexy. And she wants me in her bed, my hands on her body, my mouth between her—”
Somewhere in the distance, someone was calling her name. This wasn’t a dream; it was real. And she’d almost made the same mistake with him again. She jerked back, her cheeks flushing at her uncharacteristic loss of control.
“I can’t believe you.” She shook off her lust-induced haze and pulled away. “We’re in the playground.”
A sly smile tugged at his lips. “Swings. Chains. Gives me so many ideas.”
“You’re filthy.” And she loved it. But she would never let him know.
“So are you, if I recall correctly.” He licked his lips and Dawn’s throat tightened. God, he looked like he wanted to do her right here. And if not for her girls, and the playground full of people, and the fact it was illegal, and it was the middle of the day, she might have agreed.
