Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Buoni Amici Press 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".

Special Agent Luna Roosberg lives and breathes her job. Who needs a personal life when work is so rewarding?
When a new case sends her to investigate a local motorcycle club, covering as the president’s new flavor of the week, the lines between professional and personal quickly start to blur.
Although the Arrow’s Edge MC stays mostly on the right side of the law since Ouray took the gavel, the appearance of the feds at their gate can still rattle his cage.
When a string of robberies points squarely in Ouray's direction, he’s forced to cooperate and put the blonde, prim and proper half-pint on the back of his bike.
With pressure mounting both in—and outside—the club, Ouray no longer knows who he can trust, except the woman who is shaking up his life—and stirring his blood.

My Thoughts:

Luna Roosberg has a mystery that needs solving and we get to tag along. Right at the beginning my brain starts firing. This story may take place in Colorado but with recent changes in my neck of the woods, I could see this playing out here – just something that makes this seem so realistic. Our introduction to Luna seems a little sad because she seems so cynical about people and her life in general. I get the distinct impression that “chill” isn’t in her vocabulary.

Mark “Ouray” Strongbow heads the Arrows Edge MC and with it comes a lot of responsibility. He’s a man that’s full of surprises and has a big heart. You won’t get to see what his club was like prior to his taking over but what we don’t see may be part of our mystery. He’s a man who’s strong, can rule with an iron fist, totally oblivious about women – not bunnies, and yet has space to let the right person into his life.

This story has a lot of emotion to it. Once I started, I knew there was no way that this book and I weren’t going to become friends. I found myself becoming invested in this group of people. There were characters that weren’t perfect. There were secondary characters that I came to love and wanted to laugh with. I wanted to know more about the people Luna works with. There’s a young man who has found his voice and something else I’m sure he never expected. I can’t connect with characters that seem so perfect and that was one thing that I loved here.

Since I hadn’t read the first two books in the Rocky Point Series, I was glad to see that I could read this as a standalone. That doesn’t mean that at some point, I’ve got to get those books into my library. I want to see if the female characters are as strong as Luna. For me, I felt as if Ouray was created so that Luna could excel and show the reader what makes a good heroine. Now I just have to keep my eyes open for this author’s next book – I’m well and truly hooked.

Freya Barker inspires with her stories about 'real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy.
She is the author of the Cedar Tree and Portland, ME Series, the Northern Lights Collection and the Rock Point Series. She is also co-author of the SnapShot Series.
