Stay Vertical (The Bare Bones series #2)
Contemporary Romance - MC Romance
Release Date: May 27, 2014
This is not your mother’s contemporary romance. Daring readers will encounter sexual assault, violence against women, general violence among men, consensual BDSM, and a HEA. It is not for the faint of heart. It’s a full length novel of 65,000 words with no cliffhanger. Recommended 18+ due to mature content.
One two three four five six seven. All good sinners go to heaven.
Peace Corps volunteer June Shellmound returns to Arizona to care for her dying mother. At the clubhouse of The Bare Bones motorcycle club, June is swept into the drama when half-breed Lytton Driving Hawk barges in and demands recognition as president Ford Illuminati’s half-brother.
Hot enough to melt steel, Lytton has forged a life apart from the reservation as a brilliant chemist, living the high times at his pot farm in the mountains. Lytton is no fortunate son, though, and the mortal secrets Ford’s been hiding about their father drive the last nail into their brotherly coffin.
Lytton turns his back on the Bare Bones and sweet bleeding heart June. Blinded by vengeance, Lytton becomes ruled by his own demons, raising hell alongside Ford’s mortal enemies, The Cutlasses. Alliances are torn apart within the club, loyalties are divided, and everyone’s true spirits are tested. When the dust clears, Lytton and June find themselves running for their lives just to…
Publisher’s Note: This is Book #2 in the Bare Bones series. This book is a stand-alone and can be read out of order. However, it is advised to read THE BARE BONES first to get a complete picture of the club’s background, story lines, and setting.
Wolfe gives a unique twist to the MC Romance. Bringing in new characters that broaden her world builds on the lifestyle and gives it a whole new flavor. I've never met characters like Lytton and June in an MC Romance before! It was refreshing and showed the diversity of the community.
Wolfe brought her A-Game with the complexity of alliances, runs and moves the men take. With nothing coming easy, the characters are tested and stay true to themselves as they find their path. This is no hearts-and-flowers romance but it will make readers smile and hope for the HEA. The grit in getting there makes it all the more sweeter in the end.
I liked book one in this series but book two has sold me. I'm a fan. I'll be watching for the next book!
