After enduring months of torture at the hands of the Black Jacks MC, and betrayed by his own club, Holt “T-Rex” Savage, a junior member of the Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club, will stop at nothing to get revenge. But falling for a beautiful woman with dangerous ties to his sworn enemy was never part of the plan…
Raised by the Black Jacks, Naiya Kelly grew up fast, furiously, and with little to lose. But now that she’s put her MC days behind her, she is free to do what she wants—until she meets a man who imprisons her, body and soul. She swore she’d never give her heart to a biker, but Holt is the most passionate, protective man she’s ever known. But will Holt be forced to betray his one true love to exact his revenge?
T-Rex never doubted his sacrifice would get avenged and fully expected to be rescued fairly quickly but that just never happened. He's lost hope and faith in his Sinner brothers and slowly, day by day, his road name means less and all he can think of is revenge. Of course he wants to take down the sadist who tortures him but T-Rex aka Holt, clings to dark thoughts of showing the spineless traitors just how much he hates them. If only he could breathe one more day, survive and escape all his dreams could come true, but instead there Holt is dying and trapped in a nightmare.
Naiya never knew her father, but she sure did know her mother! A woman happily living the life of a sweet butt, addicted to drugs and never seeming to care what happened to the young and impressionable Naiya. Now her mum is dead and Naiya is back to finally lay her mother to rest but her past life with the Black Jacks has followed her and their president, Viper, quickly takes her prisoner. Naiya isn't fifteen anymore though and fights back which ends up with her being thrown into the club’s dungeon. She's not alone and the other prisoner needs her help if they are both to get out alive!
I said at the beginning that Chaos Bound feels personal and that's exactly what comes across as I read it. Holt is consumed by revenge and in a really dark place emotionally but somehow Naiya saves him in more ways than one. Naiya was so plucky and wouldn't give in, whether it was regaining her freedom or getting through to Holt that maybe he's wrong about the Sinners. She understands the Sinners could help protect her but what if it's the Sinners who need protection from Holt? The carefree T -Rex is dead and in his place strides Holt, a man with one mission and that's revenge. Problem is Holt can't help but feel protective of Naiya but has she told him everything?
What a strong story this was, rife with emotion and passion too. It was unusual to see the growth Holt made and rather surprising. So often in MC stories the brotherhood these guys share is rock solid and yet Ms Castille dares to shake up that idea with new possibilities. The plot thickened with players that surprised me, but it's a gripping read about revenge and ultimately friendship. This couple need each other as both have suffered but for me, the ending was possibly the sweetest part of all. Yes, love conquers all, but you can find love in many places and I think Chaos Bound just proves that!
