Abandoned & Broken

Darcy Kyle’s life has revolved around two things since she was told her husband had died: her 3 children and exposing the truth about her husband's death. She knows the story his MC fed her was a lie and she needs to know the truth so she can exact justice on whoever is responsible. Going up against her husband's club isn't exactly something she relishes doing, but she knows it's because of them that her children no longer have a father. They have the answers she needs and some way or another she's going to get them, even if she has to go to the one member who makes her skin crawl. But when she's faced with the fact that she may have never really known the man her husband really was, its Raze, the President of the MC, who she'll have to learn to trust. There are too many secrets and lies and it becomes harder and harder to put together the pieces in hopes of understanding why she had to lose her husband when she did. 

Betrayed & Bitter 

 Raze is President of the Heaven’s Rejects MC. His focus in life is all about but protecting the people he cares about.  Since his brother’s death and his wife’s betrayal he can't help but feel guilty that he let everyone down. So when the wife of his fallen brother, Darcy Kyle starts delving into club business, he vows he will stop her so she doesn't end up like her husband. However, along the way he begins to realize he thinks of her as more than just Brent's widow and it's becoming increasingly harder to stay away from her. When she becomes bound and determined to help the club with getting retribution he finds himself drawn to her even more fiercely and has to wonder about his loyalty to his brother’s memory. 

Are there too many lies between Raze and Darcy? And what will happen when they finally get justice for Brent's death? Can a woman who blames the MC for destroying her family accept that the MC might actually be the thing that saves it?

I really enjoyed Angels and Ashes, a lot more than book 1 actually. We get to see Darcy struggling with the death of her husband and raising 3 children without him, as well as trying to dig into her husband's death even if it means pissing off the club. I loved that she was fierce, but it came from the fact that she loved her husband so much. She couldn't let it go, his death was obviously caused by something the club was involved in which meant she could blame them. 

Raze wasn't having it though. He believed in the club and the life and it was important that he get Darcy to see they weren't her enemies. He would protect her and her kids because he considered them family. We get to see a bit of how Brent loved her through His eyes and in turn we get to see how he feels about her too. 

I liked reading about this club and how they worked and I'll be honest it was nice to not have to spend too much time reading about club whores or hanger ons. While there was still that bit of misogyny when it came to the way the men dealt with the women, it was a bit downplayed and I liked that. I didn't have as much of an urge to knock the men out.  

I'll definitely be looking for the next book in the series and would recommend this one to anyone who enjoys a good biker book. 

4.5 Stars!
