at her newspaper breaks the thin trust she has with Knuckles, will she walk
away for good? Or will Knuckles fight to keep Celina in his life?



Ughhh… I didn’t love this one as much as the first book! In fact I kinda had a hard time with it. I hate to say this this but I agree with a lot of the other 3-3.5 star reviews. And once again we get a little Wind Dragon name drop in this book. And of course Faye Black! I seriously don’t understand way they keep popping up! The author also dropped some names from her Conflict of Interest series. Jaxson makes an appearance!

I mean… They have nothing to do with in this series. I was so damn excited about book 1! Because it was new! I was introduced to a new MC club and characters! But I hated how when things started to happen all the other series just started to roll in.

I can honestly say I wasn’t totally in love with the way the book played out. I was expecting something a little different for Knuckles story.

I’m all for realistic books. But I just wasn’t feeling this part in the book. It kinda seemed out of place… to me anyway.

You know if you need to shit you can just do it. I know women need to poop too.

Yeah… they’ve only known each other for less than a week! Huhhh.

I still loved Knuckles. But Celina…. hmmm… I wasn’t feeling her all that much!
I wasn’t expecting the surprise little thing that happened towards the end of the book. It was ok. Something a little different.

I don’t know… I was so excited about this series! The first book set the tone for me! But now having read this book. I’m kinda scared to start Rogue’s book! All the men seem kinda tamed. Hopefully Rogue’s book is different. We really don’t know a lot about him.
