Smokey by L. Wilder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
From NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author L. Wilder comes book five in the Satan's Fury Series, a standalone MC romance.
You can't fight fate, especially when it brings you a girl like MJ Thompson. She wasn't just beautiful. No, she was so much more than that. She was smart with a smile full of magic and curves that drove me to distraction. I wanted her, but there was a catch: She was the lawyer handling my father's will. And as if that wasn't enough, her dad was a cop.
I should've known better than to get mixed up with a girl like her, but I just couldn't resist. I wanted to feel her body pressed against mine. I wanted to hear her call my name while she was wrapped in my arms, so I ignored my instincts. I made her mine. After one night, she had me, heart and soul. Every ounce of doubt, every second thought, vanished.
Life was good. I had my woman by my side. The club's new pipeline was moving forward, and I was coming to terms with my past. Then, without warning, it all fell apart. I lost her. She skipped town, leaving only a note and a lot of unanswered questions. I thought I had to let her go, but she had a secret. After discovering what she was hiding, there was nothing I wouldn't do to have her back in my arms.
Sometimes the road takes you on an unexpected turn, and you end up exactly where you're meant to be.
**Smokey is book five in the Satan's Fury MC, but it is considered a standalone romance. This book is intended for readers 18 and older due to violence and explicit language.
Book funks are the worst. I found this book while scrolling Amazon during a funk. For some weird reason, even though nothing appeals to me to read, I can still find stuff that sounds good. I was beyond happy when this one stuck. I must have gone through 20 books before finding this one.
I absolutely loved Smokey and MJ together. I loved how they met, before officially meeting. I loved how with that one short meeting, they both hated that they probably wouldn't see each other again. So when they did see each other again, neither was willing to let the opportunity pass. They had such great chemistry.
I loved what I saw of Smokey's MC brothers, their old ladies and his sister. I haven't read any other books in this series (yes, yes. I know, bad Lindsay. But I couldn't help it. A) it said Stand Alone (and it was) and B) I was in a funk and just needed SOMETHING to catch and hold my attention)...but I definitely want to go back and read the other books now.
I loved that Smokey was strong and alpha without being the asshole that you typically find in biker books. I mean, there's nothing wrong with that, but he was a nice change. And I loved that once he found MJ, she was it for him. She was all he wanted. Even when things went bad and they separated, he didn't turn to all the club whores. He found MJ, and gave her time while still checking up on her to make sure she was ok.
This book was absolutely perfect to me. Honestly, I hated for it to end. I can't wait to see more of Smokey and Satan's Fury in the other books.
