Steele doesn’t know how he wound up in this mess–with a kidnapped woman on his hands and the police hot on their trail. Now he and Laurie are in hiding at an isolated cabin, and Steele has to figure out how to extricate himself...and steer clear of his accidental captive whose tight, slinky clubbing attire is making him think all kinds of dangerous thoughts…
Laurie has escaped from Steele and his fellow bikers and has just been spotted by a police car. She's beyond relief to escape her kidnappers and finally feels safe. That's a feeling that's been absent a long time though, as her abusive boyfriend, Donovan, has kept her on edge permanently with his selfish and violent treatment. Not everything is as it seems though as Steele is actually trying to protect Laurie and she may have got away from him, but fate has a funny way of pulling a fast one! Okay, now this was a much better installment than the previous one, which kind of got bogged down with the ménage.
In this episode, Laurie opens up and talks about the abuse she has suffered and then takes matters into her own hands. The attraction between Laurie and Steele is palpable and it's clear he is a man with strong needs but there's a trust growing between them that's heartwarming to read. Steele may want Laurie, but he's not the sort of guy to force himself on any woman, least of all one who clearly needs protection. There's a softer side to Steele that's unexpected but unfortunately it's a cliffhanger ending which sees the heroine about to face her worst nightmare!
This is a fast paced read with very strong characters. Just when I expected the couple to finally set the sheets on fire, Ms Carew threw a curveball that was totally unexpected and I think that's what I'm enjoying the most actually. Nothing in this scorching hot story has been what I would have predicted and I love that every episode surprises me. This is proving to be a riveting read and I eagerly await the next installment.
