What an awesome way to start a story… You are sucked in immediately, knowing that “Dani” has a secret that she is running from. I couldn’t put the book down until I knew what that secret was.
Danae “Dani” Espinoza is awakened from a nightmare while on a bus from Cleveland to California. Whatever this dream is, has something to do with her secret and you want to know what it is. She meets up with her new roommate at the bus terminal and her “other” life begins. She needs a job that will pay her under the table so she is able to keep herself hidden from this secret.
She gets a job at a dive bar that her roommate works at and while she is there the first night for the interview, she dances with a stranger on the dance floor. She doesn’t know who he is, but there is a connection that she will never forget.
That stranger is Tyler “Hero” Tobias, and after he gets back to the “club” he cannot forget about her either. Oh and the club is the motorcycle club, the Heaven’s Rejects, that he is the VP of. Yeah… HOT.
Events happen that cause Dani to wind up in the “Club” and she is thought of as a “traitor” so she is in lock down until the truth comes out.
All kinds of things happen in this story and I enjoyed every minute of it. There is mystery, hot sex and romance that you would never expect. I so desperately want a “Hero” in my life.
Dani has some things in her dark past, and so does Hero and eventually the truth comes out, but in between, there is all types of hot and steamy sex.
I loved Dani’s character. She is a “no holds bar” kind of chick. She is considered a “hellcat” because she is feisty and a fighter, and boy does that turn Hero on.
I also like how you get the POV of each of them in different chapters.
All I can feel is a deep chill blanketing my body. My eyes open to complete
darkness as a voice calls to me. Its muffled tones send
shivers down my spine with every garbled word. A sense of familiarity floats
around me as its words become clearer.“Run, Dani,” it pleas from beyond the black
veil shrouding the room. “Escape while you can,” it continues. Panic courses
through my veins. Where in the hell am I? Why can’t I see anything? The pleas
go unanswered as my voice fails to render sound.“Help!” I scream internally, “Please, fucking
help me!”The voice’s call fades with each word. “You
need to get the hell out of here, Dani. You need to move. Find a wall and
escape,” I coach to myself. A cold chill of air sweeps into the darkness
encompassing me as I try to feel the place around me. My fingers plunge into a
dense, sticky liquid as I crawl forward causing my body to slide with each
movement. A hard surface is finally inching its way under my fingers.Crawling upwards, I splay my hands against the
cool wall. “You’re on your feet, Dani. The hardest part is over now. Time to
find a door or a light switch, something to get us out of here,” my internal
coach continues.Keeping close to the wall, I finally find a
switch. Flicking it upwards, the light shines brilliantly. As my eyes adjust to
the light, my hands come into my vision. A scream barrels out of my throat when
I see the sticky, red blood covering my hands and clothes. My heart races as I frantically wipe
the blood away. Blood begins to pool at my feet, inching toward me. Rushing
away from the blood, I fall backward into a solid, but warm obstacle. Before I
can turn around, hands grasp my arms as a person’s hot breath trails down my
neck.“Hello, Dani,” a different voice whispers in
my ear. “Welcome to Hell. You’re mine now,” the voice crackles as my body is
pulled into black oblivion.
Never intending to ever write her own book, the idea behind the Damaged series came to her on a drive to work early one morning thinking about her father who’d recently passed away. His strength during his cancer and rare blood disease battle inspired Avelyn to do something she’s never thought about before. She’s excited to see where this wild ride takes her.
