Series: Notorious Devils MC #2 Author: Hayley Faiman Genre: MC Romance Release Date: June 2016
Brentlee Johnson-Corbin has always followed her mother's rules, even when it meant marrying a man she knew wasn't her happily-ever-after. Bates "Sniper" Lukin, a retired marine, now rides with the Notorious Devils—his street name earned in the deserts of hell. When the most precious part of Brentlee's world is threatened by the man who was meant to love them, she escapes to the only safe place she knows. But when she seeks the shelter of her sister, Kentlee, and her husband, Fury, her past steps in—and he's determined to protect Brentlee and her daughter as his own. Their story is one of love discarded, but Sniper won't waste this opportunity to right the wrongs of his past. Life has been cruel to them both, and Brentlee is certain that the love they lost is gone forever; but under his protective wing, she can't deny that this rough and raw man might be just the hope she needs.

Lived that life a while until the Lone Star State called to us, Hill Country, Texas is where we call home, where our boots rest and loving that country life. Living the life with one bearded power pole climbing husband, two little boys that are full of energy and drive us crazy plus a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
I have been waiting for the second installment of the Notorious Devils series since I finished the first installment--- Ms Faimain did not Disappoint! I loved every deliciously dark, then sweet, dirty and emotionally charged moment of Bates and Brentlee's story. A second chance at love, and a second chance at having everything neither one of them really wanted to lose--- but can they both scale the ghosts that haunt them and make this really work? OMG. I don't want to write more for fear of spoiling it, but if you love dirty sexy bikers, and a story that just can't quit-- if you love the chance to catch the one that got away and finding a partner that will test you and a love story that definitely WILL NOT BE EASY-- if you love an emotional roller coaster that will make you literally set the book down and scream at the idiocy that you are witnessing (however fictional it is) then this is for you. And even if its not GENERALLY what is for you, give this series a shot-- it just might make you change your mind ;-)
