Fourteen months. For fourteen months, Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free and it was time for his reward—full membership in the club, along with a party to celebrate. That’s when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended he’d violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.
Five years. It was five years ago that Puck destroyed Becca and saved her all in one night. She’s been terrified of him ever since, but she’s even more terrified of the monsters he still protects her from... But Becca refuses to let fear control her. She’s living her life and moving forward, until she gets a phone call from the past she can't ignore. She has to go back, and there’s only one man she can trust to go with her—the ex-con biker who rescued her once before.
Puck will help her again, but this time it’ll be on his terms. No more lies, no more tears, and no more holding back what he really wants...
Becca is a complex character. She is shy, fun, and unsure of herself in one minute, and in a split second, her temper will explode. Even though Becca knows her mother stayed with the man who used her and beat her, she still wants and needs her mother's love and approval even though she knows it'll never happen. I love how Joanna wrote this character. And Puck...Puck is now my BBF (Book Boyfriend). I mean WOW! He admits he's not a nice guy. He can be scary, arrogant, macho, and yell; but he always has control when it comes to not hurting her.
This book is a little different than the past books in that it focuses just as much on the town of Silver Valley and it's inhabitants as it does the Motorcycle Club that protects it. Joanna has a way of bringing in past characters and introducing us to new ones and even planting background action to prepare us for another book.
I love Joanna Wylde's books, and with Silver Bastard, this series has started off with a BANG! 5 STARS!!!
