Another day, another book, and another bad boy on a motorcycle. Husband and wife DB West and Lane Hart have brought us Chase, the first book in a new MC series.
This one is a second chance romance, which, if you’ve read here for a while, you know that I have a soft place in my black little heart for second chance romances. This one made me happy and made my black little heart a little less black for a little while.
Chase and Sasha were just teenagers when they first fell in love. Right after her 18th birthday, they went and got their names tattooed on each other. He had Sasha put on his chest, she had Chase tattooed on her wrist. This led to one of the nicest little quickie scenes I’ve seen in a while, which led to her agreeing to elope with her. o bad that none of this could last. They get in a bad accident because a drunk driver hits them. Chase gets off pretty easy, but Sasha ends up in the hospital and has to have a lot of surgery to repair various problems. This causes them to end up breaking up and spending 10 years apart.
Fast forward 10 years, Chase is a VP in the MC he was prospecting when he and Sasha were dating. Sasha is now a reporter for the local TV news. He watches her every night on the news. One particular night, she’s reporting from the scene of a car accident. One that Chase may or may not have caused and where he may or may not have been seen. And that’s where all the trouble starts.
Torin, Chase’s brother and prez of their MC, tells Chase that he needs to get Sasha under control because she’s going to cause problems. Sasha, being a reporter, finds out that there is stuff going on that Chase didn’t know about. There is intrigue and suspense all over the place, as well as some really, really hot sex.
So, I really love both Sasha and Chase. Even better, I really love them as a couple. And I have to say, I love that there are brothers named Abe and Gabe in this MC. I also gotta love a MC that’s thinking ahead and wants to keep the really nasty drugs out of their area and attract more tourists for more money for the area. That’s a little different from what you normally see in MC books, but it’s a nice change. It lets the series stand out a little more. I didn’t like Torin at any point in the book, and when it comes his time for a book, I’m going to really hope that the authors can rehab him. It’s not always easy to do that.
I would be good money that the secret that Torin was trying to hide was that he fucked another woman. That’s the only thing that I could see him doing that would be as damaging as he said it would. I’m just wanting to know how well paying off that blackmail money worked for him. Damn, yeah, I know that makes me sound cold-hearted, but then again, I am. I said I didn’t like him. I don’t think he deserved what happened, but I still don’t like him.
I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. The book was well-written and the story moved well. Go check it out. Happy reading!
