Blurb: Clarity — I’ve been on my own since I was sixteen, and I’ve fought tooth and nail to make a life for myself and the son I never planned to have. Caleb is my entire world, despite the circumstances of his birth. Being homeless a second time certainly hadn’t been in my life plans, so when a gruff yet sexy biker offers a bit of help, how can I possibly say no? Doesn’t hurt that the older man is easy on the eyes, and he’s so good with Caleb. I’d thought I wasn’t able to trust anyone ever again, but looking into his eyes, I know deep down he’d never hurt us. It just never occurred to me that I’d fall completely in love with him.
Scratch — The young woman and kid I find sleeping outside my club’s chop shop make me feel things I shouldn’t. Hell, she’s younger than my damn daughter, but it’s obvious she’s been to hell and back, and she’s still fighting. There’s fire in her soul, but the gentle way she treats her son leaves me wanting things I shouldn’t. Like a new chance at a family. What the hell would she want with a man thirty years older than her? When I took her home with me, I never counted on wanting to keep her. I’ll slay her demons, bury the monsters from her past, and then I’ll do the one thing I thought I’d never do… claim an old lady, then make her my wife.
May be spoilers:
Scratch is the 2nd in the Devil’s Boneyard MC series. I think each book can be read as a standalone, but I think you would get more out of it if you read them in order. Also would do you good to read the Dixie Reapers MC series as he’s in that too. So this story has 10 chapters and an epilogue and it’s about Scratch, Clarity and her son Caleb.
Warning: There is a brief mention of rape of Clarity when she was 16. Wasn’t descriptive. There is abuse of children. A little violent.
We start off with Clarity and Caleb living on the streets. Caleb is two and she’s doing the best that she can. They meet Scratch when they’re trying to sleep in front of his shop. He lets them in and lets them rest and that’s the beginning of everything.
Scratch has a daughter that is just a little older than Clarity, and we met her and Scratch in Bull from the Dixie Reapers MC series. He’s just met them and he’s already feeling very protective of them. She hasn’t been with anyone since she was raped.
I just love Scratch, he was awesome. Everything moves super fast. I loved them together. There’s a lot going on. We find out about Clarity’s family and we find out what the neighbor did to Caleb. Through it all, Scratch was right beside her and in some cases, in front of her.
They both worry the other will want to leave. They love each other, even with just meeting. There is slight ow drama when Darian mentions “club sluts” and Scratch takes her to the clubhouse so she’ll see that she has nothing to worry about, but a naked club girl puts her hand on Scratch, and doesn’t take no for an answer, so Clarity puts her in her place. I thought that was great that she wasn’t afraid to show her feelings.
I really loved this. That small blip of ow was the only little bit of drama other than Darian and them just getting to know each other. I really thought this was a great addition to the series. Epilogue is 3 months out. They are married, yep, it was that fast and he’s working on adopting Caleb. They just find out that she’s pregnant and they are very happy.
Great read and it moves pretty fast. I loved it. Wish it was a little further out, but I’m sure we’ll see them in some of her next books. I gave it 4 stars. Hope you check it out. Thanks for reading.
