Guilt kept him away from Santana for years, but once he has her, he’ll let no one stand in his way from keeping her.

As the only child of an abusive biker and an alcoholic mother, Santana Rogers had one hero she could turn to in her life. Stake Wills, a member of the Kings of Bedlam Motorcycle Club, was her father’s best friend, her savior and her lifelong crush. When her father is sent to prison, the club and her only friends turn their backs on her, leaving her to deal with the fall-out of her father’s crime on her own.

Santana is proud of the way she’s persevered through the hard and lonely years. When Stake reappears in her life after the County Sheriff attacks her, she isn’t sure she’s willing to let him back into her life and her heart. And if she does, she’s not sure she’ll survive having her heart broken again when he inevitably leaves.

It just about killed Stake to walk out of Santana’s life, but after his best friend’s death, he’s forced to choose between the motorcycle club and keeping an eye on Santana. The club is the only family he’s ever known, and a blackmail threat by Santana’s mother threatens to destroy it all. He realizes that he made a mistake, but that won’t stop him from trying to prove to Santana that he’s still the man she needs him to be.

I enjoyed this book a lot. The fast paced drama and the characters pulled me into the story and then I fell more in love with the hero as each page was turned.

I loved reading Stake and Santana’s story. This is a great story of redemption and salvation for each of them. Santana grew up as a child of the Kings Of Bedlam MC. Her dad was an enforcer for the club until he got killed in prison. After that the entire club turned their backs on Santana and her mom. Santana is unaware of it but her mom had blackmailed the club and as a result Santana was suffering for it. Stake had to make a hard choice of choosing Santana or his club. He chose the club the first time but felt tremendous guilt for leaving her. When he discovered how much Santana needed him then he didn’t hesitate in making the right choice. From that moment on Santana was his first choice and he didn’t hesitate in claiming her as his Old Lady.

Santana pulled at my heart and I loved the angst and drama of her situation but the abuse and attempted rape could be an emotional trigger for some readers. If not then it will certainly be an emotional read that will tug at your heart. For myself this was the kind of story that I enjoy reading. It was easy to fall in love with Stake because he was ready to give up everything for Santana. I also liked the heat level in the story. It was a steamy read that was very well written and fast paced. It also had some intriguing secondary characters that I would enjoy reading about, especially Tiny and Gypsy.

I enjoyed this book and would love to read more books set in the Kings Of Bedlam world. Biker romance readers will love this one. So happy reading with my recommendation.
