Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Saints and Sinners and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

Abandoned & Broken

Left alone to raise a family, widower Darcy Kyle’s life has spiraled out of control. When secrets about her husband’s past emerge, Darcy is forced to confront the fact her husband’s fatal accident may, in fact, have been deliberate. Forced to sell her soul to the Devil himself, Darcy must uncover the truth of her husband’s accident…before it’s too late.

Betrayed & Bitter

Cast into Hell, Raze has given his life as President of the Heaven’s Rejects MC, but what good is it when he can’t protect the people he cares about? His brother’s death, his wife’s betrayal… it’s too much for a mere mortal to handle. Luckily for Raze, he is the ruler of this Hell on Earth. But even the Devil has a weakness, and when Darcy Kyle sticks her nose in the club’s business he finds himself questioning his loyalty to his brother’s memory.

How can the Devil resist an angel bathed in the ashes of the fallen?

My Thoughts:

Darcy Kyle gets a visit that makes her visibly mad.  Raze has some disturbing business he needs to take care of.  She is very upset with the MC and some of that rage is directed toward Raze.  This story shows what the president of an MC has to deal with – sometimes it’s not just the club but family as well.

A situation comes up and it shows that Darcy will do anything for family.  She also won’t take any shit from Raze and he’s at the top of her shit list.  Raze seems to be a man with two personas.  There’s the one that he has for the MC and then the one that he shows to Darcy.  I loved how the author made her Darcy character – she’s not willing to accept what she’s told and she’s willing to find a way to get closure.

When you find a series that you want to follow, you will find that the books get better as they go along.  I found this to be true in this case.  I enjoyed book one but found I loved this one just a little more.  And that of course sealed the deal – I have to read more.  My only problem was that I couldn’t find any information on a book three.

The author covers a lot of ground in this book but no scene drags out and you get to see more about those that are part of the Heaven’s Rejects.  We also get to see some tender moments and one such scene involves both Darcy and Raze.  By the time you finish this book, you will understand what a great storyteller this author is.  It also shows how creative she is.  Some MC books can be violent but this is more on the tame side but language is graphic and in some instances strong so that you know where these men belong.  Our ending shows that something good can come out of something so tragic.  Our main characters may be claiming each other but we’re being claimed as well.

Other Books in the Series

Heaven Sent (Heaven's Rejects #1)

Bloody…broken…barely surviving…

Danae “Dani” Espinoza is on the run and desperate to escape the demons of her past. Plans to hide out in a sleepy Los Angeles suburb turn into a pipe dream as she is drawn into the secret filled world of the local motorcycle club. Dani soon learns that her secrets and lies are nothing compared to those kept behind the clubhouse doors. Trying to avoid the suspicious Vice President, she must keep a low profile in order to survive. The trouble is he has other ideas.

Bike…babes…and booze…

Tyler "Hero" Tobias has simple needs. Being the Heaven's Rejects MC Vice President, he has all three at his disposal. But he has his own ghosts that keep him awake at night. When Dani arrives at the clubhouse, he knows he should stay away but there is something about her dark beauty and the mystery that surrounds her that makes him burn. There are secrets in her eyes and lies in her smile and he knows he should put his club first, but Hero’s heart and loyalty are about to be tested.

Can an angel with blood-covered wings and the devil himself resist temptation or will they risk bringing hellfire down on everything that they love?
