My Thoughts:

Tessa Martin has to face her demons head on.  They’re ones that I hope I never have to face.  Trigger has a certain attitude that will make your hair stand on end.  Allen is a man that loves to connect with people.

This is book two for a reason.  It continues what was started in the first book.  So I would suggest not starting with this one.  To really appreciate what the author has written about the Devil’s Reach, you need to read from where it all started.  Expect this story to have a lot of grit.  Don’t expect to have hearts and flowers here but it’s possible that it may turn your stomach.  Just like with book one, it became an addiction and one that I don’t want to find a cure for.

If you like characters that have no excuses, are far from perfect, and trouble seems to follow them than it can find a place in your ever-expanding collection.  Trigger is a character that will garner your attention, Tessa will garner your sympathy and Allen will send shivers down your spine.  Our author always seemed to know the perfect spot for him to make an appearance – he stops you in your tracks.

Just like the first book, I knew I had to put the book down but I knew it wouldn’t be long before I was picking it back up again.  Our characters have lives that I just cannot imagine anyone having but the author makes everything so realistic.  And when I say no hearts and flowers I mean it.  Instead of hearts think blood and instead of flowers think motorcycles.  The cover can give you something to think about as well.  The cover model’s eyes are very intense – just like Trigger himself.

Our author is very good at leaving her readers hanging.  I was going along reading the scenes and getting closer to the end. I end up saying, “why would you leave me like this?”  But she must have known what I went through the last time.  Just like with book one, I’m left wondering if there’s going to be another book.  But this time she gives me a sneak peek.  Be warned it’s not much of a peek so I guess I should be glad that I cut my fingernails since I may be hanging from them for some time – had to wait 10 months for this one to come out after all.  And just so you know it was well worth the wait.



Silence fell. The only things screaming were the demons inside my head. My anger rose rapidly.

“Jace!” I barked. “Clean this shit up.”

He and the newest prospect, Rich, started to push the human waste down the industrial drain with a shovel.

Blood dripped from the tips of my hair and ran down my face. I grabbed the razor we used to skin the heads and moved over to the mirror. I gathered the hair in the center of my head and lifted it up then buzzed the sides.

I left the mohawk long.


I flipped my hair out of my face and spun around to face my men. They seemed unsure what to think.

“Like the new look.” Rail said, trying to break the tension.

Gus nodded in agreement, but I caught him glance to where Morgan stood off to his side.

“Fuck, I would give my left nut to have Tess back,” Rail muttered to Brick.

Brick remained silent, which was good, as I was moments from flipping my fuck switch.

I grabbed a bottle of whiskey on my way out and stuck it in my saddlebag before I kicked my bike to start the engine. The air was cold and whipped through my hoodie as the smell of the rain to come made memories come thick and fast about the last time it poured.

Her lips shivered, but her eyes told me she had a lot more fight in her.

“You’re cold.

“I’m fine.” She pulled the joint from my lips.

I shook that thought from my head and turned down a side street. I cut the engine and found Mud outside his surf shop.

“Evening.” He grinned when he saw the bottle dangling from my fingers. “You want to keep going?”

I nodded and removed my hoodie and tossed it on

the table, but carefully laid my cut on the leather couch away from the mess.

He motioned for me to take the chair. I flopped back and looked up at the naked posters that littered the ceiling.

Mud lit a joint before he spoke. “This new?” He pointed at his head.

I nodded.

“You want a glass?”

I wiggled the cap off with one hand and drank the neck before I set it aside. Mud huffed with a grin, and smoke poured out of the corners of his mouth. He tapped his phone, and The Black Keys’ “Lonely Boy” played through shitty speakers. I eyed him, curious if it was meant for me, but he just clicked the machine on and went to work on my pec.

I focused all my energy on the needle that drilled tiny pinpricks into my flesh, but sadly, it didn’t last long. The pain subsided, and I was left with my demons gnawing on my memories.

Nolan was nowhere to be found.
