Series: Rebel Wayfarers MC, #11
Author: MariaLisa deMora
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: November 6, 2017
Fury has made a name for himself in club life as a member and officer who calls things like he sees ‘em, and not a man to put up with lies and deceit. When he takes time to think about it, he finds the reputation amusing considering the kind of guy he used to be.
As soon as he could, Gabe Ledbetter fled his family’s home in the mountains of Kentucky. Those hills and valleys were undeniably beautiful, but they masked a painful legacy of loss and betrayal. Gabe counted himself fortunate to have gotten out, his scream-filled nightmares a reminder that not everyone had been as lucky.
Gabe, now called Fury, has built a family for himself with the men he calls brothers.
Over time, he worked his way from club to club, managing to climb the ladder of responsibility until in his small world he was the top dog. Big man, but one with an empty bed.
Bethany Mason-Taylor has lived her whole life in survival mode. From her first memories of a traumatic childhood, it always felt as if she were skating a mere stone’s throw ahead of disaster. Everything finally seems to be on track for success, and now that she’s put her most embarrassing fiasco behind her, managing the come-back tour for a band signed by her brother’s record label should be a breeze.
That is until one gloriously handsome redhead slipped into her hotel room and derailed all of Bethy’s carefully laid plans. She’s the forbidden fruit, sister of his MC president. He’s her ultimate weakness. Oh yeah, this is gonna be fun.

From Chapter Ten
“I know there are a few more things I should deal with today,
but I’m beat, guys and gals.” Six faces turned and looked at Bethany. “Two more interviews and I’m calling it, going to head to the hotel. This trip piled on top of a few busy days back in Nashville means my bed is calling.”
“You must have been up before daybreak to get to the airport,”
Chase said, reaching over and grabbing a handful of chips. “No wonder you’re beyond tired.”
Looking around the room, she noted the band members had all
stopped their activities. Apparently, her announcement provided the permission they needed to switch back to lounging around, bottles of water and soft drinks in hand. At least their nerves were eased by today’s early interviews. Benny was an old hand at this, but the rest of the group were less polished. Bethy glanced over at her nephew with a grin, thinking it was a good thing Mason hadn’t told Chase about the gig ahead of time. As it was, the young man looked
wrung out. She knew if he’d had even a couple of extra days to worry and fuss, he would be a whole other level of exhausted. She was about to offer to take him to the hotel too when the door abruptly opened.
Bethy’s breath caught in her chest as she watched a striking redhead walk in, complete with a full, thick beard and an attitude of owning
all the space around him. It’s just not fair, she thought, assuming he was one of the radio promoters. Why are the good-looking ones always in out of the way places like Lamesa?
Benny stood, hand out, evidently thinking the same thing about
the guy, but before she could move forward, Chase was hooting with laughter, yelling, “Fury, dude. Totally didn’t expect to see you here!” He turned to her, a delighted grin in place on his face as he introduced them, “Aunt Bethy, this is Fury. He’s one of Dad’s trusted few in Fort Wayne.” Twisting, he held out a hand to point at her, speaking to Fury, “This is my best Aunt Bethy. She’s the
coolest. She runs the record label for Dad, and signed Benny’s band.”
Standing slowly, she took the look Fury was giving her, half-appraising and half-aggravated. She held out her hand to shake, and when he wrapped his fingers around hers, she felt a zinging awareness of him zip through her and watched his eyes widen and then develop a laser intensity as he studied her. Shoulders rising and falling as he pulled in a deep breath, he reintroduced himself, “Fury. Otherwise known as your escort while in town.”
With a nod, she responded, “Bethany Mason-Taylor, otherwise
known as the awesome Aunt Bethy.”
He smiled at her, white teeth flashing in the midst of that dark red beard and she found herself smiling back at him. Damn.

I’m a huge fan of this author and have read and loved all the Rebel Wayfarer MC books. Fury is Bethany and Gabe story and this one was just as amazing as the others. This author is very talented, she meticulously and strategically connects the stories of different characters into similar time lines. These story as with Fury’s are filled with heartache, betrayals, and are painful. I always find an underlying message within the words of this authors writings. The journey is a long one, one that has so many ups and downs but I know that at the end things will work out.
Bethany is Mason’s little sister, and there’s nothing little about this character. I usually fall in love with the men in this stories but Bethany won this one hands down. She’s gone through so much in life but came out stronger. Despite being betrayed she has a heart of gold and is loyal to those she loves. I bonded with this character instantly, just like in the real world we all make mistakes and we grow from said mistakes. Bethany’s character was just like that she never let her mistakes hold her back, well except for a sexy red headed biker that is.
Fury, I’m sorry I needed him to suffer more. Moving on in the past he was known as Gabe and his past with Bethany wasn’t pretty. It was ugly, I’m talking junk punch ugly. Over the years Fury has changed, his mistakes and his regrets led him to be a better man and a Rebel Wayfarer member. His paths takes him right back to the very woman who has occupied his heart and mind for years.
Fury and Bethany’s past, present and future was laid out perfectly in this story. It’s a story filled with pain, joy and promises. Besides winning back Bethany’s heart we are also settling some old scores. I’m not going to say much because if you haven’t read this series I’ll blow things wide open. I was so glad to that some scores were settled and to see some of my favorite Rebel Wayfarers from previous books. I love how this author has made me part of the Rebel Wayfarer family just by the use of her words. I always can count on getting lost inside her stories that I forget I’m actually not there. I’d hate to see this series end, I’m grateful that there are still more characters screaming to be heard and some unresolved matters left to be resolved . Highly Recommend!

This, Nor That MC series
Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an
early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library,
devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she
says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and
found I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available,
I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.”
A hockey fan, hiker, gamer, and single mom of a special needs son, she
embraces her inner geek and has been working in the tech field for a
publishing company for a couple decades.
Music is a driving passion, and she says, “I love music of nearly any
genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap,
hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing
through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live
music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars
[read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection
of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”
