When a King loves
He loves hard
I've loved her since we were five years old.
We grew up side by side.
Two kids tied together by the Kings of Mayhem Motorcycle Club.
But I broke us.
I broke her.
So, she fled.
Now she's back after twelve long years.
And I'm going to show her all the reasons why we should be together and make her forget all the reasons why we shouldn't.
I'm back in town but only because I have to be.
I'm here to help my mom bury my father.
And the sooner we get it done, the better.
Because I want to see Cade as much as I want a hole in the head.
He broke me once—no, he broke my everything— and I'll be damned if I'll let him do it again.
Get in and get out. That is the plan.
But you know what they say about best-laid plans.

Cade is desperate for Indy to forgive sins of the past but forgiveness is difficult when memories stand in the way. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense.
We are introduced to the large and colorful ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters whose presence directs a good portion of the story line premise.
The world building focuses on the present and the past; the events that shaped our story line couple including childhood trauma, spousal abuse, school shooting, death, violence, alcoholism and cheating.
KINGS OF MAYHEM is a gritty storyline ala Sons of Anarchy™ although some of the violence and ‘mayhem’ is behind the scenes or often implied. The premise is lively and dramatic; the romance is provocative and intense; the characters are broken, sassy and tragic. KINGS OF MAYHEM is a wonderful and intriguing introduction to Penny Dee’s KINGS OF MAYHEM MC series; a predictable but entertaining story line that ends on a cliffhanger-you have been warned.
