The event that shook one small town to its core was never solved. The domino effect of one person’s crime going unpunished is beyond measure.
He’s no saint. Dover ‘Collector’ Ragnes rides with only five brothers at his back. Nomads with no place to call home, they never stay in one place too long. Together, they are the Devil’s Due MC, and their only purpose is to serve justice their way for unsolved crimes everywhere they go. She’s not afraid to call herself a sinner. Emerson Flint still remembers the loss of her elementary school best friend. She is all grown up, but the memories still haunt her of the missing girl. Surrounding herself with men at the tattoo shop, she never questions her safety. Her life is her art. Her canvas is the skin of others. However, danger is at her door.
Will Dover overcome the history he shares with Emerson in time? Will Emerson lead him to the retribution he has always sought? Love, hate, anger, and passion collide as the time comes, and the devil demands his due.
I am a huge fan of Chelsea’s and I knew I wanted to read this new MC series as soon as I could and I wasn’t disappointed. I was hooked from the first chapter. This isn’t your typical MC series and that’s what made it so different from any other books. You have these sexy and sinful bikers, looking for revenge on the ones who were wronged and trying to give them their own brand of justice.
This book is about Dover, aka Collector, who lost his nine-year old sister Raleigh when he was a teenager. She was kidnapped and murdered and his life was never the same. He felt so guilty because of what happened and knew he wouldn’t be happy until he found her killer. When the case goes cold, it doesn’t stop Dover from searching for the maniac who took his sister’s life.
Emerson was his sister’s best friend and still lives with that horror after all of those years ago. She has never forgotten her and continues to keep her memory alive. Leaving everything she ever known, she has made a new life in a new state as a tattoo artist. She never thought she would see anyone from her old life. Until Dover walks into her shop.
Dover is shocked to see her and she brings even more of his emotions to the surface but they have this intense attraction that neither of them feel they can deny. And OMG how hot these two are! They are just perfect for each other! But when Dover gets closer to her, he sees that even though she has left her past behind, she is still tortured by it after all this time.
As Dover is drawn closer to his sister’s killer, his clues cause Emerson to be put in danger and here comes his protective side that I just loved. She is a part of him and he won’t let anything stand in the way of her safety, and that’s another thing I just loved about him. His guys in the MC are right there with him every step of the way and I’m so intrigued by all of these men. They are so different but yet so alike, but sexy and hot as hell.
“I’ve had a small taste of having something real. That was last night with you. This pull between us is too strong.” – Dover
As I said, this series is so different because not only are you getting a MC club, a sexy romance, but a lot of suspense and sickening characters involved. I am not a weak at heart person but this made me a little queasy as we get more of the story around his sister’s murder. But, I loved that factor because life is not a bed of roses and that’s what people need to see in a book. It made it a believable story with some really twisted men in the MC. I think Chelsea done a great job with letting you see a small side to each of these men and tempting you because I am so anxious to see more of these guys and find out what makes them all tick. Dover and Emerson’s story isn’t an easy one. It’s hard, raw, and very intense but I thoroughly enjoyed this 5 star book and can’t wait for more of these men and this series!
