I was raised by the Devil himself.
Formed into a man that was unreachable.

Killing is the only thing the calms the itch.
The demons inside were a constant battle.
…until she changed everything.
When you spend most of your time
in the dark, is it smart to step into the light?
This is the first time reading a MC story written by this author and I had to gather my thoughts after reading it. The first page literally made me cringe but holy cow what a ride this was. What I love about a good MC read is the darkness, grit, angst, violence and the hot and heavy sex they usually have. This one had it all. I absolutely loved every single page of this book. This book was well written, the plot was complex and the overall flow was perfect for this story. The main characters blew me away but the secondary characters were also a nice touch.
Trigger was the perfect President for this book. He was a no holds barred character that took what he wanted. He lives life as he chooses, he fights dirty and Lord does he do sex dirty! His club, his life and anyone that messes with them feels his wrath. Once he meets Tess he begins to care about more than the club and his brothers.
I loved that Tess is this strong willed character. She’s running from a past and doesn’t want to be seen. She only wants to make enough money to stay low. Trigger catches her eye but unlike the girls in MC she doesn’t bow down to him. He has his pick of women and she’s too much for him.
Omg, these two together are smoking hot. Trigger doesn’t want to admit he’s been taken by Tess but the man is always sniffing her out. I swear the back and forth banter and the push and pull was the perfect foreplay. Trigger knows she’s hiding and running from her past and as long as trouble doesn’t come to his club they have no problems. Yeah right the trouble is Trigger and his club. Tess and Trigger were perfect for each. Together they find a peace and a life neither knew they wanted.
This author uses the perfect blend of flashbacks in this book. It was enough to keep me guessing but just enough to where I knew things were not only bad but violent. We see more of Triggers past but Tess is still a secret. I can’t wait to see what is going on there. The Devils Reach MC lead a very dangerous life, they make no excuses for what they do and I loved how the author never changed things up. The men were hard but we saw softer sides when it came to the club and their families. These are 1%er’s there is no cuteness to them nor should it be. I’m not a violent person but the violence in this book had a purpose and gave this story the grit needed in an good MC read. I can’t wait to see what comes next in this series. There are still stories to be uncovered and characters screaming to be heard.
