4.5 Stars!

Levi has been rethinking his life in the Defenders MC, however, when tragedy strikes, taking both his father and the woman he planned to spend the rest of his life with, it's obvious he needs a change. He doesn’t like what they've become, the drugs and the violence, the total disregard for the people outside of their club. He's conflicted now more than ever and mourning Krissy while facing the fact that the accident killing her and his father isn't adding up, is driving him crazy. Now he's seeing a woman he’s never met, the woman who held Krissy's hand as she died, in his dreams. Is there something more going on, is there a reason for everything that happened? Some insane twist of fate? Or is it all just some weird coincidence?

While this is a MC Romance, it’s also
something quite different. It’s not every day we read about a Biker losing his soulmate and then that soulmate bringing him and the woman he'll fall in love with together. There's this connection they have through their dreams as well as their nightmares. They're actually seeing one another and the feelings they are experiencing are sticking with them. It's almost a mystical story.

There is also an intriguing mystery going on here as far as Levi’s father and the club. It went well with the romantic aspect of the story and had me hooked from the beginning. I could tell right away that I was not going to like this particular club and Levi was too good to be part of them.

Zoe’s story is sad, too. She’s an addict and finally being clean for only a week, she is faced with witnessing a horrible accident. Not knowing what to do she calls 911 and then holds the hand of an injured and bloodied woman as she dies. That’s a lot to thrust on a junkie but Zoe is stronger than she knows and she realizes this is it. Life’s too short to live like she has. It’s time to get clean and get her life on track.

Zoe broke my heart. Her past and her decline were what endeared her so much to me because it was so real. She’s not the typical h, she wasn’t the bright-eyed, naive young woman that we see so often, instead, she was flawed and she needed work. She was in need of Levi and family.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story and the characters. I loved how unique it was, not at all the formulaic Motorcycle Club Romance I’ve read so often. I thought there was a bit too much sex (the scenes were long) and that was the only thing that really bothered me. It’s an emotional rollercoaster but it’s well worth it and I highly recommend it.

Jessie Cooke writes hot romance novels about tough guys, bad boys, bikers, fighters and lovers and the women of strong character who tame them.
