He’s exactly what she doesn’t need…
He’s exactly what she shouldn’t want…

He’s exactly what she should stay away from…

But she can't.After losing her mother, Melia knew her life would never be the same, she just didn’t expect it to be so drastically different. Her mother’s final wish was something that not only changed her life but also the way she lives it. And it put her right in front of a man that angers her as much as he excites her.
Patrick ‘Wrench’ Ryan is president of the Tormented Souls Motorcycle Club. He’s strong, tough, and his word is law, but his sister knows how to get the upper hand with him. So, when she showed up with Melia and told him she’s staying in the club house, it didn’t take much to get him to relent. He tried to play nice, but Melia gets under his skin.

Things change when the club’s biggest foe escalates their rivalry in an attempt to bring the Tormented Souls President to his knees. It’s up to Patrick to protect his sister and the things most important to her. Will he be able to keep everyone safe? Will Melia get caught in the crossfire? Or will it all be for nothing in the end?

Excerpt #1 

“What?” I growled, grabbing the back of the woman’s head when she started to pull away. Making my message clear; she wasn’t done just because I was on the phone, but to be sure, I said, “I didn’t say to fucking stop.”
“Seriously. At least stop fucking when you answer the phone.” Ryan’s disgusted voice floated over the line. I rolled my eyes even though she couldn’t see me.
“What, did you finally realize I was looking for you?” I rested my head against the back of the couch. The woman had no idea what the fuck she was doing with my cock. I would not be getting off unless she changed what she was doing. From the feel of it, it was possible she’d never sucked cock before. Trying to listen to Ryan but also get some pleasure out of the whore, I fisted my hand in her hair and attempted to show her a rhythm that felt better than what she was doing.
“Yes, I did. Sorry, Master. I didn’t realize I needed to report in immediately,” Ryan sarcastically replied. “I just got time to return your call. We’re pregnant and it’s twins. I hope they are both girls so they can drive their uncle even more crazy than he already is.”
It was easy to tell she was trying not to sound as happy and excited as she truly was. Always hiding behind her tough exterior. “Well, congrats on the brats. When am I going to meet this woman who is carrying the babes?”
“Never, if I have anything to say about it,” Ryan answered immediately.

Her Journey takes off from where we left off in “Her Ride.” Therefore I recommend that you read “Her Ride” first if you want to get to know and understand the characters of the Tormented Souls Motorcycle Club. The main difference in this second book is the featured couple; a shift away from Ryan & Ellis aka “Dirty” to Patrick aka “Wrench” & Melia. That been said, Ryan and Ellis's story continues as it is closely interwoven with that of Patrick and Melia's.
Patrick and Melia's worlds literally collided when they first meet. Neither knows who the other is, but manage to create a lasting first impression of each other for all the wrong reasons. When their stars are once again aligned; sparks start to fly.
Patrick is very much a stereotypical alpha man-whore. He's president of the MC, and used to women scratching his itch on demand. He's rough and demanding, showing little respect for the whores that throw themselves at him. Melia is a freelance photographer but more importantly the surrogate to Patrick's unborn niece or nephew. She's also a woman that is willing to stand up for herself; outspoken and unwavering. Melia doesn't like to been treated like a doormat and likewise, Patrick is taken aback by the fact another woman besides his sister Ryan, is willing to verbally stand up to him.
I spent most of the story trying to figure out why Patrick acted and behaved the way he did with women. Most of the time he was such an a*sehole, with tiny glimpses of someone that is capable of deeper, meaningful feelings. It was such a relief to finally try and understand the reasons behind his behavior with women.
Melia is equally frustrating. We are lead to believe that she has had problems with men and relationships in her past. Her own father was abusive. So, it was difficult to find a plausible reason why a woman would be attracted to such an ass as Patrick. I guess the “Off the chart” sex was just too good to resist. ;-)
This was a quick, likeable read with alternating POV's of Patrick and Melia. I found a few spelling errors, but these didn't spoil the overall enjoyment of this book.

Her Ride (Her #1)

Being happy. It sounds so simple. Yet, it seems that it’s always just out of reach for Shannon Ryan.

After serving overseas for seven years as a female United States Marine, Ryan is finally getting out the military. But coming home to live with her biker brother and his motorcycle club is more difficult than she thought it would be. Much has changed in the years that she has been gone, including Ellis, her brother’s best friend and childhood crush.

Ellis 'Dirty' Crane is the second in command for Tormented Souls Motorcycle Club. The only thing he lives for is the club, that is until Ryan comes home, no longer the wild little girl that followed him around. The two things standing in his way of getting what he wants are Patrick, Ryan's brother and leader of the club, and Jeremiah, Ryan’s boyfriend.

Can Ellis break through Ryan’s walls? Burn them and Jeremiah down? Prove to her brother that he’s the right man for her? Or is Ryan hiding more than she’s letting on?
