Review: Riggs by Sandy Alvarez and Crystal Daniels




Published June 2019

Blurb: Abel LeBlanc, better known to his brothers as Riggs — President for The Kings of Retribution MC, Louisiana Chapter. As a former Green Beret, he runs the club with the same amount of precision and grit he did serving his country.

Dedicating years of his life to mercenary missions, and to his club left no time or desire to settle down and start a family of his own. What good could come of loving a woman if he could never promise her forever when he willingly puts his life on the line every day.

No one has ever come close to making him want more. No one until Luna.

A call from Jake; President and founder of The Kings of Retribution has Riggs and his men on the road toward Montana. Their objective — protect a woman from falling into the hands of another MC.

Little did he know when his eyes fell upon the striking woman with violet eyes, she would alter his life forever.


Growing up in the system is hard enough for any kid. For Luna Novak, not being able to hear the world around her made surviving in it the most terrifying and isolating experience of her life.

Though she doesn’t have much, Luna feels she has finally gotten to a point in her life where her future doesn’t look so grim. That is until she makes the mistake of putting her trust in the hands of the wrong man — almost costing Luna her life.

For Luna to protect herself and survive, she must leave Arizona behind for a new life in Polson. When her past follows her, threatening the lives of those around her, Luna soon finds herself under the protection of the local MC.

Leaving with Riggs and going back to Louisiana with him becomes her only choice. Her heart tells her Riggs will keep her safe, yet fear screams for her to run.

The pull she feels toward Riggs is stronger than any feeling she has felt before, but can she put her trust and her life in the hands of another man so quickly?


May be spoilers:

Riggs is the 1st in The Kings of Retribution MC, Louisiana Chapter series. Has 21 chapters and is about Luna and Riggs.

From the very first paragraph, I was sucked it. Riggs is president of his MC. He’s a protector, a soldier. When we first meet him, they are rescuing some women from traffickers.

Luna, that poor girl. We meet her when she is supposed to be dead. She’s been beaten very badly by her so called boyfriend for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see.

She’s deaf, but that by no means make her weak. She didn’t realize how bad her boyfriend was until he hurt her. She doesn’t want to trust any one else.

I love the way Riggs and his brothers are together. I kind of wish that I had read the other series first, just so that I could know more of the characters, but I wasn’t lost.

They meet cause Luna needs more protection from her ex and his club. They both feel a connection and I love that he already knows how to sign. I also love that even though Riggs was not looking for a woman, he’s all in with Luna.

Riggs, I love him. He’s amazing and he doesn’t hide his feelings about Luna. He’s definitely one of my favorites.

There was a lot going on, but I still smiled most of the way though, so it definitely made for a great read. It’s long, but it definitely doesn’t feel that way.

I love that even with everything she went through, there was no pushing away. They were both all in from the beginning.

I love that we don’t have to see him with anyone else.

Parts are very graphic, violent. Definitely feel the characters, which I loved.

This was awesome. I will be reading more by this duo. The writing is great as everything just flows so well.

Slight ow blip twice, but Riggs handles it. Om drama from her ex-he does grab her breast and forcefully kiss her, but it didn’t go any further.

Safety gang: A character was touched between the legs, and a character’s breast grabbed. No rape, but it was implied that it was going to happen.

I loved this story. Kept me interested all the way through. No skimming. I really wish there was an epilogue, that would be the only negative for me, as I love seeing them further out.

Pretty great story. Instaeverything, no cheating, no drama that hurts their relationship-loved, no separations.

Does end with them getting engaged and pregnant. Can’t wait to see more of them. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
