Layla is heading back to her hometown for the first time in years. Not for a visit but to bury her brother who was in the Fire and Steel MC. She thought she had escaped the MC at age 15 when her fatherpassed away, and she moved to Chicago. Cullen “Rage”, her brother’s best friend and her ex, agrees with the President “Bones” that Layla needs the MC’s protection after a threatening note is found on her brother’s body and has to stay.
“What the hell was I doing here? I ran my fingers through my hair. This was insane. Seriously, staying here because I might be in some kind of danger? I doubted whoever killed my brother even knew who I was.”
I enjoyed this story quite a bit. You have the Irish Mob, multiple MCs and jealous high school rivals. Layla is like the princess returning back to her MC family after a short stay away. I loved Cullen’s protectiveness of his girl and wanting to avenge his best friend’s death. The methodical steps they take to go after the ones they think are responsible keeps you guessing. You continually wonder when they are forced to work with other factions if they will be double crossed. Is there an enemy within?
I hope we hear more about the Fire and Steel MC or even a book about the Irish Mob. Somehow I know we haven’t heard the last from some of these guys. Perhaps I need to help avenge Layla’s brother’s death. Deep thoughts…make a to do list, kick some ass, take some names….
