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.

So what should Emily do after coming home from work as a librarian only to find the little neighbor boy, Tucker sitting alone on the apartment complex steps with a bag of junk food sitting next to him looking very alone? After talking with Tucker she finds out that his mom has left him again and the other neighbors that he usually goes to has left for the weekend. Being that really good and loving person that Emily is she takes him home with her feeds him pizza and tries to contact his dad seeing his mom is nowhere to be found. Who knew that his dad is not only a biker with the True Brothers MC but he is the Prez of the club? Emily’s friend, Jessica, happens to be living with and getting married to one of the bikers from this club as well so Emily figures that Jessica would have an address of where Tucker’s dad, Reb, could be found. A little scary pulling you crap car up in front of a biker compound but Emily is determined to find Tucker’s dad and make sure that Tuck is taken care of. Even though some of the bikers try to intimidate her she will go toe to toe with anyone just to make sure that Tucker is taken care of.
What does a big ass biker who is the Prez to the True Brothers MC do when confronted with the sweet innocent and oh, so sexy little librarian who just happens to be taking care of his son? Oh, my, this is where things heat up between Reb and Emily because they both feel this pull and you know what they say about opposites attracting. Emily comes with a little baggage though and that is that she was brought up in the system and when she did finally get out she found a low life boyfriend who liked not only liked to beat her but ended up stalking her after she left him. So is Emily going to be able to handle any type of relationship with a biker who has two sides; one being the loving father that she has seen with Tucker and the other being the big, demanding, volatile biker that the president of a motorcycle club has to be? Reb keeps telling Emily she has nothing to be afraid of concerning him ever doing harm to her but she has lived in fear most of her life and has panic attacks occasionally from everything she has been through.
Is Reb going to be able to push the system and get to have custody of Tucker since his mother could care less about him or is living the biker life going to stop that from happening? How far is Emily willing to go to take a chance on something that feels so right to her? Being the Prez’s Old Lady also puts her in the crosshairs of the rival club so if she does agree to try this relationship with Reb what kind of dangers are in store for her? Is Reb going to be able to keep Emily safe from everything in and out of the club life? This is another good installment of Ms. Archer’s biker series that has me waiting for the next book to come out. These books let you see how the bad boys can be good and the good girls can be bad.
