✯✯✯ ½

Luciana — All I’ve known is pain and suffering at the hands of men — even from my father, a man who was supposed to love and protect me. I’ve survived, nothing less and nothing more. When I’m dropped off with a club of bikers, I figure it’s more of the same. I’ll do as I’m told, make sure I please them, and hope one day I’ll find a way to escape. There is only one thing that could ever break me, and I’m scared of what will happen when the club learns my secret. Will they return me to my father? Or will I be used to broker yet another deal?

It never occurred to me the President of Hades Abyss would be my salvation, or that I would fall in love with him. I never knew men could be honorable and kind. He’s all gruff and domineering, but under that rough exterior I can see the heart of gold he tries to hide.

Spider — Assassin Casper VanHorne, Picasso of wet work and pain in my ass, has asked my club to take in two Colombian princesses. Well, he didn’t use the term princesses, but I have no doubt they’ll be spoiled little bitches. The first time I see Luciana and her sister, I think I’ve got them pegged just right — until I look in Luciana’s eyes and see the fear she’s trying to hide. Something isn’t right. I know it deep in my gut.

I never once thought a woman nearly forty years younger than me could ever captivate me, but the more I get to know her, the more Luciana holds me spellbound. I didn’t want to fall in love, didn’t want a woman in my life… but sometimes the Fates know better than a mere mortal man, and Luciana is exactly what I need. When her father demands her return, I vow to keep her safe. No fucking way I’ll let the sick bastards who hurt her get their hands on her again. Now that she’s mine, I’ll march into hell if need be in order to keep her by my side.

WARNING: This book contains bad language, graphic sex, violence, a heroine who has been physically and sexually abused, and an alpha male who will get vengeance at any cost.

May be spoilers:

Spider is the 1st in the Hades Abyss MC series. It has 11 chapters with an epilogue and is about Luciana and Spider.

Spider is the president of the MC and he was offered a favor from Casper in exchange of taking care of Luciana and her sister. 

He definitely wasn’t happy about it, but he knew right away that something wasn’t what he thought. 

There is a 40 year age difference, but it didn’t bother me. 

You can feel Luciana’s fear and pain, but you can also feel her strength. 

They connected right off the bat. Luciana felt safe with him. 

I wasn’t a fan of them having sex right off the bat, but it was still a good read. 

This story was them getting together and dealing with her father and the men who hurt her. 

I loved how Spider was with her. They were both in from the beginning.

Fast and easy read. Lots happened and kept my attention from the beginning. 

No cheating between mcs, no ow/om drama, no separations other than distance. 

Safety gang: She has been raped since 15. 

Epilogue is a month out. They are married and just adopting a daughter. 

Quick read. Wish it was further out, but it was still very good. 

I gave it ✯✯✯ ½ . Thanks for reading.
