President of the Lost Kings MC, Rochlan “Rock” North, hasn’t managed to find a woman capable of making him want to curb his wild ways—until he meets sweet, innocent, married lawyer Hope Kendall.
Forced to represent the outlaw biker, Hope is rattled by her immediate attraction to Rock. Hope is a good girl in a good marriage. Rock thrills her, but she’s not going to throw away everything she’s built on a fling with her criminal client.
Rock respects Hope enough to leave her alone, even as he realizes he’s become a little obsessed with her. When their connection endangers her life, he’ll have to destroy her in order to save her.
After tragedy strikes, Rock is determined to earn Hope’s forgiveness and convince her that even with their staggering differences, they’re meant to be together
to. Already in my head, I’d laid claim to this woman whose first name I didn’t even know.
Slow Burn isn’t your typical MC Romance. It was quite refreshing. While some aspects of living the life of an Outlaw MC were mentioned, this story focusing primarily on the attraction and love of Rochlan North, Lost Kings MC President and Hope Kendall, attorney. From the moment they met, they felt an attraction that Hope had to try hard to resist and Roch had to try hard to fight…because Hope is a married woman. Though he’s an outlaw, he was portrayed as a man with morals and respected those around him. He was quite different from the stereotype we come across now and days with this type of read.
Hope was a strong women who had difficulty seeing how strong she really was. Spanning over a period of two years, we see how Roch is determined to claim Hope as his and when the opportunity strikes during a devastating time for Hope, he tries to do just that and help Hope get back to being the strong woman she was when they first met.
I really liked this book. It was a sweet and romantic story that wasn’t overflowing with hardcore MC rivalry, violence and debauchery. Don’t get me wrong, I love having all of that in my books, but I must admit that there are times when I just need a break from it. Don’t you? This is a great filler to give you that type of break while still giving us the romance we crave. It was a decent size read, so it would definitely come in handy if you’re in the search of a read to help with a book hangover.
