Brentlee Johnson-Corbin has always followed her mother's rules, even when it meant marrying a man she knew wasn't her happily-ever-after.
Bates "Sniper" Lukin, a retired marine, now rides with the Notorious Devils—his street name earned in the deserts of hell.
When the most precious part of Brentlee's world is threatened by the man who was meant to love them, she escapes to the only safe place she knows. But when she seeks the shelter of her sister, Kentlee, and her husband, Fury, her past steps in—and he's determined to protect Brentlee and her daughter as his own.
Their story is one of love discarded, but Sniper won't waste this opportunity to right the wrongs of his past.
Life has been cruel to them both, and Brentlee is certain that the love they lost is gone forever; but under his protective wing, she can't deny that this rough and raw man might be just the hope she needs.

I knew I was going to love this book just from the prologue, It bought me tears and left me feeling like I had been punched in the stomach.
AND...I was right!!! This is the story of Brentlee and Bates. There was drama, angst, suspense and this couple definitely bought the heat.
From the very beginning I was hooked and I devoured this book within a couple of hours.
Brentlee followed her parents rules and look where that got her...Married to a man who was perfect on paper but was an animal in real life. He abused her mentally, emotionally and physically. She went from a fun, loving and colourful person to a broken girl who was just looking for a safe place.
Bates gave his heart away years ago to the woman who still has it today. He has always regretted what happened back then but never acted on it. That was until she turned up at his clubhouse looking for her sister and a safe place.
Brentlee went to the Devils for help, Her sister recently married the club prez and they were her way out. What she didn't expect to find was the boy she has secretly loved for years standing before her.
Bates made a vow the minute his eyes landed on his girl...She would be his and he would protect her until they took their last breath.
Brentlee dosnt come alone though she has her daughter with her and a heap load of trouble looking for them. Bates knows that to make this woman his he must fight with everything he has got. He must prove himself worthy of her and her daughter love and If that means he has to eliminate all dangers and people who stand in his way...GAME ON!!!
