"I did not expect to like this book"
Addison has had a hard life. Her mother is useless, and her father hasn't been in her life for years. When her mother dies, she's left with no money and an angry man after her. She goes to the only person she knows can take care of her right now - her father. She knows her father is the president of an MC club, but she doesn't quite realize just how much she will come to rely on that club.
I am the good girl, the one who does no wrong. Daughter of a ferocious and strong MC president, I know what protection feels like. Until one night changes everything - and not a single person in the world can protect me from it, not even my dad. Suffocating. Alone. Desperate. I let my problems live deep inside until there is no longer anywhere to run. I need an escape. Anything to make the pain go away. Trouble comes for me, and I don't fight it. I tried so hard to believe in what I was, but nobody understood.
"Emotional, Tender, Raw."
I've loved Danny since I was five. He's loved me longer. It seemed destined that we would be together; it seemed like the stars had aligned. Then we grew up, and life got in the way. He's stepping up to be president of the motorcycle club we grew up in. And I want no part in it. I want to be free, to travel the world and experience life without violence. He's not willing to give up the club. I'm not willing to be an old lady. But giving him up is like losing a part of myself.
"Two fools in love"
They say opposites attract. In my world that isn't a good thing. I did everything I could to escape the grips of the motorcycle club I'd grown up in when I turned 21. It wasn't about fear, or betrayal, or even lack of love. I just needed my own life. I had to know how it felt to stand on my own two feet, without their protection. Then I met Diesel. Mysterious, dark, with eyes that screamed to be understood.
One single moment changes everything. In one breath, you can have it all. A split-second later, it can all disappear. That was me. I had it all. Then, in a cruel twist of fate, it was taken from me. A beautiful life gone in a flash. But he was there. He was there to pick me up when I fell, to protect me. My savior. My rock. He was just a stranger. Just a selfless stranger with a face I'll never forget. Can't forget. Won't forget. And like everything else, he just disappeared as if he never existed. I have to find him. I need to find him.

"Dark and good"
I'm just a normal girl. Or so you would think. I never thought of myself as anything different. Until I met him. Rafael Lencioni doesn't think I'm normal. He thinks I'm special. Special enough to be in his life. Special enough to enter his world. Special enough for his bed. My story is the one that's never told. I'm not the daughter. I'm not the wife. I'm not a sister or a mother. I'm not his enemy, and I'm not his friend. I'm not who you think I am. So for me to fit into their world, I have to do something I never wanted in my life.
Spike knows tragedy, and he knows that feelings are better left hidden. He refuses to put his heart out there again, it's a pain he's not willing to feel a second time around. He's accepted he's going to spend forever alone. That's all he deserves.
