Series: Satan's Fury MC
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: October 18, 2016
You can’t fight fate, especially when it brings you a girl like MJ Thompson. She wasn’t just beautiful. No, she was so much more than that. She was smart with a smile full of magic and curves that drove me to distraction. I wanted her, but there was a catch: She was the lawyer handling my father’s will. And as if that wasn’t enough, her dad was a cop.
I should’ve known better than to get mixed up with a girl like her, but I just couldn’t resist. I wanted to feel her body pressed against mine. I wanted to hear her call my name while she was wrapped in my arms, so I ignored my instincts. I made her mine. After one night, she had me, heart and soul. Every ounce of doubt, every second thought, vanished.
Life was good. I had my woman by my side. The club’s new pipeline was moving forward, and I was coming to terms with my past. Then, without warning, it all fell apart. I lost her. She skipped town, leaving only a note and a lot of unanswered questions. I thought I had to let her go, but she had a secret. After discovering what she was hiding, there was nothing I wouldn’t do to have her back in my arms.
Sometimes the road takes you on an unexpected turn, and you end up exactly where you’re meant to be.
I am a huge fan of Leslie Wilder, and I love the Satan's Fury MC series. Smokey and Marley Jo (MJ) have to be one of my favorite couples of this series so far. Although this is the fifth book in the series, each title including Smokey can be read as a standalone.
Marley's and Smokey are an unlikely pair, he's in an outlaw MC, and her father is a cop and she's a lawyer. Their attraction is instant and they have an intense chemistry, that just oozes off the pages. The love scenes between MJ and Smokey are hot, sweet and steamy. Both the hero and heroine of this story were incredibly like-able and believable.
Smokey is a complete contradiction he's an alpha, covered in tattoos, but he's really a big softie and very gentle, sweet, loving and loyal to those he holds dear. Smokey doesn't trust easily, having been hurt by those closest to him.
MJ is incredibly endearing. After the book opens with a heartbreaking letter from MJ to Smokey, I really didn't expect to like her character. She's sassy, funny, loving and loyal and tries her best to protect the person she loves the most.
I loved how much the previous characters appeared in this book, and their stories continued as well within this story line.
Smokey is a wonderful mix of romance with suspense, it's quite an emotional read that's quite sad and heartbreaking at times, but also has moments that are incredibly sweet and heartwarming. I read this book in one sitting, it captivated me right from the start and I really didn't want to put my kindle down. I love all this series and loved Smokey and cannot wait to read the next installment in this wonderfully well written, engaging and entertaining series. I'm sure lovers of MC romance will fall for the characters in this book and they will stay with them long after they finish this story.
Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
