As a teen, Dawn ran from a life on the streets straight into the arms of Jimmy “Mad Dog” Sanchez, a biker who promised to be her knight in shining armor. But his love was just another cage. Years later, Dawn’s former life still has its hooks in her and she’ll do whatever it takes to break free. When Cade “Ryder” O’Connor, a member of a rival club, makes her an offer, Dawn finds herself in a different, hotter kind of trouble with one irresistible Sinner…
WILL HE GIVE HER THE RIDE OF HER LIFE?
Cade is an outlaw biker with allegiance to one thing and one thing only: The Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club. But when it comes to the stunningly sexy, fiercely independent Dawn Delgado, Cade finds himself…hungrier for more. Trouble is on Dawn’s heels and he wants to be the answer to her prayers, whether she wants him to be or not. What can’t be denied is the red-hot attraction between them. However, as they fall deeper, the danger rises and Cade may have to sacrifice it all…
Dawn has escaped her abusive ex-husband Jimmy and the Club he rides for but through underhanded tactics he managed to convince the judge that their twin daughters belong with him. Dawn works three jobs in order to be able to spend time with her beloved girls but has no time for romance or does she? A year ago Cade spent two hot nights with Dawn in his arms and has quietly been watching out for her ever since. Dawn has enough on her plate without getting involved with another biker but this cocky bad boy is determined to literally charm the pants off her! Dawn is independent and has no intention of bowing down ever again but fate steps in and just throws this couple together and the fiercely protective Cade is everything Dawn needs and so much more!
It took me a while to really connect with these characters, if honest, but it's well written with plenty of good dialogue. It's a hot romance but there's also the tricky issue of Dawn's twin daughters, Tia and Maia, and truthfully the scenes with them are beautiful. Cade's interactions with them steal the show and really make Beyond the Cut a fabulous book to read. Add in two (yes two!) rival motorbike gangs and the suspense and action just keeps coming.
Yes, Dawn is strong and a mother torn, but she does make mistakes and I really felt for her. Cade (you beautiful, passionate man you), really needed someone to challenge his alpha male ideas but I forgave him, as he truly redeemed himself when confronted by seven year old cuteness! Interesting supporting characters added to the enjoyment and an ideal read for those who enjoy gritty MC stories.
