the Lost Kings MC series, Wrath and Trinity’s story can be read first.
Trinity Hurst.That girl fucking owned me the minute I laid eyes on her. At twenty-one years old she already had a cold, calculating wall around her. The walls she built up around herself were designed to keep guys like me away. Underneath her tough girl exterior lay something sweet and vulnerable that I very much wanted to explore.
I had her first.
I fell in love with her.
Then we fucked everything up.
His name should have been lust. Pure, soul-shattering lust was the deadly sin I felt when I looked up—way up—into his ocean blue eyes. I should despise bikers. I should most definitely steer clear of this one, with his thick, muscled arms, and low sensual voice. My normally impeccable self-preservation instinct vanished the minute he walked in the door. Like everything else in my life, I fucked it up. And he’s never going to forgive me.
Old Habits Die Hard.
Wrath and Trinity met when the Lost Kings MC was on shaky ground. After three perfect nights together, Wrath knew she was it for him. But Trinty’s dark past was about to catch up to her and the Lost Kings MC was her only hope for protection. One misunderstanding led to a chain of mistakes that pushed them apart for years. When long-buried secrets are finally revealed, Wrath will stop at nothing to break their bad habits and make Trinity understand—she belongs to him.

I’m so happy! Finally getting Wrath’s and Trinity’s story has really made me a happy reader. I always felt the tension between those two and was constantly curious to know what went on between them to cause so much hostility and jealousy.
Autumn Jones Lake did an awesome job of providing their story and weaving through the timeline we’ve already been given with Rock and Hope’s story. It worked out seamlessly and gave a full picture so that everything came full circle, in a sense.
Now, I’m a fan of the series and I adore Rock’s sweet and gentle ways but Wrath provided me with the edge and dangerous vibe that usually comes with an MC romance. His personality made me believe so much more that the Lost Kings were a real MC. Getting to know him better, instead of the grouchy parts we saw in the previous books has made him my favorite character. He’s the perfect combo of strong, yet gentle; hard, yet soft and dangerous, yet safe. His affections for Trinity run so much deeper than we’ve seen before.
Trinity was also a favorite of mine. I already knew she was an amazing woman. She was good to the MC and helped out when she was needed. She took her responsibilities seriously and was a great friend to Rock. Getting to read her and Wrath’s story, we learn of her past and it’s a past that would shock you into wondering how she turned out the way she is. From the snip its of her in the previous books, it’s not something I would have guessed but she just proves her strength and character by being who she is but we also see that her past has also caused deep insecurities that caused her to do the things she’s done.
This was definitely my favorite book in the series and Wrath and Trinity are my favorite couple. I can’t wait to read what’s in store for them in the next one.

My attention is finally drawn to the papers Trinity has in her hands. “What’s that?”
“Oh, it’s nothing. I didn’t realize Jake was already… You asked me to put some stuff together… So never mind.”
She folds the papers in half before I snatch them out of her hands.
“Ow! Thanks for the paper cuts, asshat.”
Jake chuckles and grabs her hands to look them over. I can’t wait to get in the ring with him later and kick his ass while Trinity watches.
I’m impressed with what she printed out. I knew she’d be good at this. She’s got a week’s worth of circuit training exercises broken into different ones on each day. Each circuit includes a balance of strength and endurance exercises. I glare at Jake, and he takes the hint to get lost.
“You’ve done your homework,” I say, handing the papers back to Trin.
The corner of her mouth twitches down in disappointment. “You don’t think it’s any—”
“Is that what I said?” I hate snapping at her, but sometimes it’s the only way to get through her self-doubt.
“Where’d you find some of these?”
“Are they too advanced for you?”
I tilt my head and stare at her. “Seriously?” She chuckles. “Good, then call me when you’re going to try the Front Lever. It looks sexy.” She spins away and heads back to the office.
