The Hero(s): Elias – his father is the corrupt Mayor of Providence and owes the Mafia over $800,000. They are coming after Elias for payment. Elias has never had a good relationship with his father though his father is popular with the people. He was never there for Elias. Elias owns a custom Motorcycle shop where he designs and paints custom bikes.
The heroine: Alexa – was in a car accident a few years ago and was told that her chances of getting pregnant were one in a million. Alexa lost her parents in a plane crash and is working in a job she dislikes trying to pay down student loan debt.
The Love Story: Elias and Alexa have a one-night stand and are a bit reckless with protection since Alexa couldn’t get pregnant. When she finds out she is pregnant she goes to Elias to let him know though she plans to give the baby up.
I felt this books wasn’t quite as good as many of the BB Hamel books I have read. It definitely wasn’t bad, but there were plot holes that bothered me. I know there are women who never want to have children but it seems to me someone who lost the ability to have kids before even deciding if she wanted them would not be so quick to give up the one in a million opportunity she was given. Alexa seemed a bit to OK with the thought of adoption, saying that she never expected to have children so she basically never developed a want for children.
I also thought Elias was a bit too nice to be considered a bad boy. He was quite dirty in bed, but he seemed just a bit boring otherwise. The story was quite steamy and I did enjoy it, but it isn’t something I would read again. This one gets 3.6 stars (rounded up to 4).
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
