I had her first.
Eight years ago, the Lost Kings, MC was recovering from turmoil within the club Wrath and Trinity met.
I fell in love with her.
After three perfect nights, Wrath knew she was the one. But Trinity’s dark past was about to catch up to her and the Lost Kings MC was her only hope for protection.
Then we fucked everything up.
One misunderstanding led to a mistake that locked both of them into a war to see who could hurt who the most.
We’ve wasted too many years. It’s time for Trinity to understand—she’s mine.
When long-buried secrets are finally revealed, Wrath will stop at nothing to fix things and make Trinity understand she belongs to him.
When I got given this ARC I wasn’t aware it was part of a series so started to worry that I wouldn’t know what was going on but I’m happy to say that this can be read as a stand alone novel, and what a novel it was. If you are looking for an easygoing book that won’t take long to get through then hold off from this one until you have the time to devote your whole attention to it. You will go through so many different emotions throughout this book, some bits are a bit heavy definitely pulling on the heartstrings, but you will love every second of it.
When Trinity first met Wrath she finally thought she had found someone who she could trust with the truth about her past. A three-day romance felt like a lifetime where all she could think about was him. Three days is all it would take to fall in love and then ghosts from her past would see her world fall apart. She has a choice to make to save herself but in doing so she will lose what she really wants.
From the moment Wrath met Trinity he knew he wanted her and after spending a few days together he could see that this could be the start of something. After being called away to do a job for the Lost Kings MC he is in for quite a shock when he comes back to the clubhouse to find Trinity set up as the club mama.
From one misunderstanding, and the fact that neither of them fought hard enough in the beginning to make the other listen, their lives went very different ways. With being the club mama it is sort of expected that she will take care of all the needs of the club and its members, from cleaning, cooking to the option of servicing the members. Trinity doesn’t really think she has much of an option but all she wanted was for Wrath to say that she was off limits, but he doesn’t and after she makes the wrong decision she knows she has lost him for good.
Eight years later and they are still going round in circles, when one does something that hurts the other then they will do something back to make them hurt more. You can tell that they are both getting tired of this and if they both weren’t so thick headed then they would realise that their feelings have never really gone away and that’s the real reason they can’t both let go. They just don’t want to.
After Wrath is told the full story about why Trinity needed to seek the protection off the Lost Kings MC he doesn’t know how he could have been so blind. Now he will do whatever it takes to get her to see that he wants this to work between them. That it is not just about sex, although there is plenty of that throughout between them and HOT doesn’t even begin to cover it (you might need to fan yourself down after!), but that what is between them goes much deeper.
Trinity can see a different side to Wrath of late and wonders what might have been. She doesn’t think that she can ever be his ol’lady because of what she has done over the years with the club, and from what happened in her dark past, but he will do whatever it takes to change her mind. The road they start on back to each other is a long one with lots of bumps, twists and turns in the way to throw them off course. But with Wrath at the helm you just know that he can steer them in the right direction.
A great bit of writing where you get so into it that you lose track of time. The type of book where you will be reading into the early hours of the morning and having your eyes begging you to put the book down. Can’t wait to see what happens next.
4 out of 5 stars
