Every rebel needs a cause—and a woman to believe in. Discover why Heidi McLaughlin raves that “the sexy, alluring bad boys of the True Brothers MC will make your mouth water” in this smoldering novel from the author of Ruthless.
The black-leather-clad biker who just roared up on his Harley doesn’t resemble any single father Emily Clark has ever known. But as she watches “Reb” bonding with his son, Emily realizes there’s a lot more to this bad boy than his alpha-male attitude or his sinful good looks. And when Reb takes an interest in her, there’s no way she can resist his surprisingly tender touch. The one thing Emily won’t give up is her hard-won independence.
As president of the True Brothers MC, Reb owes a sacred debt of loyalty to the club, but his first priority is making sure that his son grows up right. Pursuing an unexpected affair with Emily is a close second. Then a violent stalker threatens her life, and this unconventional guardian angel really turns up the heat. Nobody messes with Reb, or anyone under his protection. Trouble is, how’s he supposed to defend Emily when she insists on going it alone? He’s willing to put his life on the line for her. Now, maybe, he needs to open his heart.
Gillian Archer was new to me author when I read the first book in this series but I loved her take on the MC genre and she has made me look forward to the rest of this series. I’m happy to say that REBELLIOUS was just as much fun to read.
Emily Clark has a soft spot for children especially those neglected, due to her own tumultuous childhood and finding her neighbor’s son apparently left to his own devices is enough to ignite her ire and fuel her match into the lion’s lair, in this case the clubhouse of the True Brother’s MC. Turns out her young neighbor’s father is the President of the MC and someone she already knows.
Reb has had his eye on Emily since one of her best friends became involved with a club member and he knows he’s not in the place to purse anything with her, caught up in a messy divorce and custody battle with his ex, but one thing Reb has never done is deny himself anything.
Reb’s rough lifestyle is not one that Emily imagines she can fit into with her own history, but the attraction between them, the fact that Reb is a genuinely nice and caring man and her affection for his son are all the reasons she needs to explore what’s between them. With his crazy ex breathing down, their necks and trouble brewing between the True Brothers and a rival MC, can Emily and Reb find a happy ending in the midst of these issues?
Reb and Emily were very good for each other. Reb exposed a wild streak in Emily and she brought a sweetness to his life that he’d never had. I loved this story because it showed a gentle, caring and kind side to a man who is certainly not the poster child for a genteel lifestyle. His close relationship with his son was also something to love.
I’ll say this again: I love this series because the author chose to emphasize the community within the MC and their friendships, instead of serving up more of the dark stuff we usually get from MC stories.
