HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY to HWY 550 by Freya Barker – check out my review + and awesome giveaway on the blog today hosted by Buoni Amici Press, LLC. ❤
Special Agent Luna Roosberg lives and breathes her job. Who needs a personal life when work is so rewarding?
When a new case sends her to investigate a local motorcycle club, covering as the president’s new flavor of the week, the lines between professional and personal quickly start to blur.
Although the Arrow’s Edge MC stays mostly on the right side of the law since Ouray took the gavel, the appearance of the feds at their gate can still rattle his cage.
When a string of robberies points squarely in Ouray’s direction, he’s forced to cooperate and put the blonde, prim and proper half-pint on the back of his bike.
With pressure mounting both in—and outside—the club, Ouray no longer knows who he can trust, except the woman who is shaking up his life—and stirring his blood.
I have fallen in love with Freya Barker’s writing style – her books are relatable, sedate, and subtle which end up bringing peace to my soul.
I had been looking forward to Luna’s HEA ever since we got a glimpse of her stubborn attitude in Burning For Autumn (Read My Review) – but most of all, because the little tidbit we did get showed that her’s would be one of my favorite tropes of all times; that if “opposites attract”.
Luna is a petite Special Agent with the FBI with “her” size chip on the shoulder – her size and gender had made sure that she has had the “pleasure” o prove her worth more than any other male agent. And can I say that she does so resplendently!
Ouray, the biker President gets on Luna’s nerves – mostly because there is an unwilling attraction to this rough, alpha, possessive, outlaw male that she just doesn’t understand nor is willing to explore.
When an undercover operation puts them in close quarters – proximity is exactly what pulls down the wall of misconception they had about each other.
Luna is exactly the kind of heroine I adore reading about – a certified, strong, brilliant, bad – ass woman who took no prisoner and made no apologies for who and what she is and my respect for her just grew when I was confronted with the past she has worked hard to overcome.
Ouray, on the other hand, who took hold my heart, right from the start – this tough, possessive and protective alpha biker with a soft heart knew exactly what his “sprite” needed from him and he knew it instinctively – he could claim this strong woman as his, yet understand that she is no damsel in distress or a waif – and in the process becomes her rock and support!
The only thing was that I needed a confrontation or rather a showdown with the boogeyman from Luna’s past – but that is the witch in me who never forgives nor forgets *shrugs*
Luna and Ouray’s romances is one that gives me hope – hope that even though I read multitude of romances; there are some that do and can end up making me feel at peace at soul deep level.
