Book #4, Demons on Wheels MC series, by Ravenna Tate
Life is seldom fair. Meghan Sanders knows this all too well. Her tragic past haunts her in ways no one knows. Although that past is a closely-guarded secret, she's convinced it gives her no chance for happiness. She's found a measure of peace and contentment at Scotty's Place as bartender, cook, and sweetbutt. She's cheerful, friendly, and upbeat. But there's one thing she wants more than anything, something just beyond her reach. Phenex is the club's Road Captain. He too has a past filled with horrors that few can even imagine. Although he's often an enigma wrapped in a riddle, somehow Meghan has a link with him that, at times, borders on the supernatural. But these two have been at cross purposes since they first met two years ago. Neither will admit their attraction to the other. Why? Can it really be that hard? As the past and hidden secrets come creeping out, they begin to affect both Meghan and Phenex. Add in hidden agendas and potential chaos surrounding Scotty's and the MC, and you have an incendiary mixture ready to burst into flames. The flashpoint appears imminent. How will Phenex and Meghan react? Can they put aside their pasts, their differences? Is there any trust left in either? That's what it will take. If Meghan and Phenex can't learn to trust and believe, how can they ever move forward? With the future of Scotty's and the MC in doubt, is it even possible for Phenex and Meghan to build anything? Will they chance it? Or will they remain forever in limbo, never knowing what might have been?
Ravenna Tate's incredibly talented. To give you some idea of her abilities, she's written an MC series that I love. I absolutely DO NOT knock anyone's choices when it comes to reading. But I'm not a fan of MC books. And every book in this series has been remarkable. The characters, storylines, and detailed descriptions of every aspect of the MC lifestyle give incredible insight and perspective that I've never before considered. There's intrigue, suspense, and, of course, erotic romance, throughout each book, including this one. I love the plots and settings. But what really makes this story special are Meghan and Phenex. Their shared traumatic pasts and the struggles each has to face trying to come to grips with them pulled totally unexpected emotions from deep within me. Their first meeting, their heartrending pasts, and their struggle to move forward against incredible odds, all set against the backdrop of ongoing life and conflict at Scotty's and in the MC, all captivated me. It's like Ms. Tate knows exactly how to grab a reader's heartstrings in ways you never expect. The pain, tension, uncertainty, joy, fear, potential for love, and ultimately the care and warmth of the MC family are real. The relationships in this book are what hooked me, none more so than Meghan and Phenex's. I give Phenex's Retribution five stars. This is another great book in a series that's surprised me in many ways. Thank you, Ms. Tate, for another look through the windows into this intriguing lifestyle!
One final note. Please be an informed reader and consumer! This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language and sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy this genre, think hard before buying any book you know you won't enjoy. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. Use these resources. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. It's not fair to the author! She works extremely hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice.
Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
