With the looming threat from the Mancuso Crime Family, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is preparing for a war that could destroy them. Grady, the club’s Sergeant-at-Arms, knows that love makes you weak, and he has zero interest in adding to his liabilities– especially now. He’s already got his teenage daughter who keeps him on his toes and a beef within the club that could fracture his relationship with a fellow brother for good.
For Holly Mercer, her life is finally getting on track and the last thing she wants is trouble from her hometown’s resident outlaws. Keeping her nose clean is easier said than done, when suddenly she finds herself embroiled in club business. Holly might like the idea of being with a real-life bad boy, but even being in the same room with tough-as-nails Grady flusters her.
When Holly inadvertently finds herself on Mancuso’s radar, she has two choices: trust that Grady will protect her, or continue to refuse the club’s help. Both roads are dangerous, but only one has the chance to damage her beyond repair.
Love is never more dangerous than when it can destroy you.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
What I say: Holly has recently moved back to her hometown and starts working at her old high school. She finds herself dealing with the so called 'problem children' of the local MC Forsaken. One of these students Chey is the daughter of bad ass and grumpy biker Grady.
I wasn't expecting to like Grady because he's been an asshat in the previous books (don't get me wrong he definitely has his moments in Rev) but for the most part he won me over far more so than Ryan and Duke did.
Grady's only real soft spot seems to be for his daughter and when faced with Holly, they instantly clash - oh the fireworks!! I loved these two, they had me laughing at their banter, swooning at their naughty scenes and wanting to shake some sense into them when they were at their worst! Both are extremely stubborn and it was good to see how Grady had met his match in Holly.
The club drama has again continued from the previous books but there was one particularly upsetting twist I didn't see coming. The secondary characters play a big part in the story (loved Chey and Jeremy) but I'd like to see more of Mindy and Ian. The male characters in this series all seem to have inherited the alpha gene. Although they do show moments of vulnerability with their leading ladies, they can all be real arseholes and will not be for everybody. With every book in this series the bikers seem to grow on me and I find myself more accepting and forgiving of their behaviour - everybody loves a bad boy, right?!
As a warning Rev has a few scenes of sexual violence which may be potential triggers.
