A determined mother, her wayward son, and their unexpected shot at happiness.
Army veteran and former hockey center, Darius “Kaos” Ariti was searching for a new challenge when he joined the Dead Presidents Motorcycle Club. Now compelled to shelter an imperiled woman and her fierce little boy, he's gained a temporary family but is in danger of losing his heart.
Tina Parker put up with a lot of crap in the name of peace but she will never again be anyone’s victim. Fearing for her safety and desperate to build a stable life for her son, she accepts the hospitality of a biker whose passion-filled glances remind her she’s still very much desired.
Lines will be crossed, promises broken, and Tina and Dylan’s survival will depend on trusting Kaos to be their center.
The Dead Presidents MC is a brotherhood of military veterans formed to help vets reintegrate into civilian society. They’re the good guys… mostly. Complete, standalone HEA love stories. No cheating, no cliffhangers.
Wonderful story that will give you all the feels!
Centering Kaos is the 10th installment in Harley’s Stone’s Dead Presidents MC series.The Dead Presidents were my introduction to MC romances and I’ve read and loved them all. This one was definitely not the exception.Centering Kaos revolves around Army veteran and former hockey center, Darius “Kaos” Ariti and Tina Parker. Tina meets Kaos when she goes looking for help with her abusive ex and the MC (and Kaos) step up to make sure her and her son stay safe.
This was just a great story that’ll give you all the feels. Who couldn’t like the idea of someone coming to help you in your time of need, but even better, helping you to find your own power? The characters are fantastic and you really feel invested in them, their story, and their happiness. Tina’s struggle as a mom and as a victim of abuse are heart wrenching. She’s carrying the weight of the world, trying to do what’s best for both her and her son, and it’s wonderful to see someone come along for her that’s willing to help shoulder some of the burden. Kaos, for all his accomplishments in the Army and on the ice, is lonely and Tina and her son really fill a void that he didn’t fully know was there. The chemistry between them is hot right from the start, but Tina has to learn how to learn how to trust herself before she can begin to trust another. Super sweet and tugs on your heartstrings ❤️. Can’t wait to see what’s next for the Dead Presidents!
