Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Smokey (Satan's Fury MC) by L Wilder
From NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author L. Wilder comes book five in the Satan's Fury Series, a standalone MC romance.
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.
**Smokey is book five in the Satan's Fury MC, but it is considered a standalone romance. This book is intended for readers 18 and older due to violence and explicit language.
I really love this series. You do not have to read the series as these books serve as standalones but I like to know all of my characters that show up and you certainly have that in Smokey. I wouldn’t by pass them anyway as you would miss out on Maverick, Clutch, Stitch and my favorite Cotton. I also want to comment on the covers of the books. I love a black and white cover and the author has a way of creating the exact image of the main character. Smokey is no exception. Each release has a close up of the man himself with the exception of Maverick. The cover is great of course but I love the choice of a simple yet very poignant picture that tells so much.
A letter from MJ … that is the first thing you get when you turn the pages. It's nothing short of heartbreaking so you know you are about to hear a back story and how we got to where the letter was left for Smokey. Pain – complete pain was on that paper so be prepared because it's not easy.
Smokey knew a woman like MJ would bring him down but he went down that road anyway. He never showed have looked back after dropping her off that first night but he couldn’t let her go. A kind and warm heart lies in the chest of the Satan’s Fury men. This is one of the numerous reasons I love these books. Smokey is a man who opened his heart, didn’t play hardball and put his past to rest in order to move forward with the beautiful woman he had grown to love. And then she left ….. a note. That was all he had left.
MJ did what she had to do. But now what? How is she supposed to move on with her life when the best half of her is far away. A man like no other rescued her, kept her safe, gave her his soul and she walked away all because she thought it was the only way. Her life is broken.
Again this is a great series. There isn’t a lot of mayhem in this series so if you like MC reads but not the gore this is the series for you! Go click them up and give the Satans Fury men a whirl. You wont be disappointed.
Thank you L. Wilder for the ARC! I wish these guys would have been around when I was stomping through the campus of Murray State in Kentucky. When we rolled down to Paris, TN I would have looked for them. --- GREAT READ.
