A single father struggles to change for his daughters and the woman he loves in this second book in the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club series from New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando.
As a single father of two girls and the sergeant at arms for the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club, Jack “Knuckles” Chester doesn’t have much free time. And having earned his road name from his reputation as a fighter, Knuckles isn’t one to back away from a challenge.
But what he’ll never admit out loud is that his two daughters have changed him irrevocably, softened him even. And these two girls are the only women who will ever hold
his heart forever. That is, until he meets the cousin of another biker’s old lady.
Celina is nothing like the women Knuckles used to date. She’s a journalist for the local newspaper, dresses well, and basically just has her life together. And the last thing she wants is to be involved with a Cursed Raven. But when the ripped, badass biker worms his way into her heart, she has trouble remembering all the reasons they would never work.
But when a scandal 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?
What can I say? Ms. Fernando is one of my favorite authors. And to think I’m actually enjoying reading MC books, too. Thank you, Ms. Fernando. While this book is about a member of the MC, she still doesn’t tell us exactly what they do. Okay, so we know one thing but none of the bad stuff. And I’m okay with that. I don’t need that. I need the characters, the conflict and more importantly, the romance.
I have to say, Knuckles intrigued me from the start. A club member with kids and a soft spot for his president’s daughter. Her “bestie” at best. I loved Erin in the first book and she just proves how much she has grown in this one. I also liked seeing Gage going on a date, too. But let’s back up for a moment. This book is about Celina, not Erin. I liked Celina from the start. She’s the polar opposite of Knuckles, at first, and then sooner than later, I can see the similarities between them.
I loved how Celina really fought her attraction to Knuckles in the beginning. We got a sweet romance between them, too. Ms. Fernando knows how to write a sweet but sexy romance between her characters. Yes, her formula is simple but just when you thought everything was great, she always manages to throw a HUGE wrench in the story. I never saw it coming and that’s what I love about her writing. Nothing is set in stone until the last word is read.
I know that I’m a newbie to MC books but Ms. Fernando doesn’t write them with all the details. Her books are romantic, heartfelt and above all, about the characters. Do yourself a favor and start reading them. You won’t be disappointed.
