Merk has been haunted by the crime, because of a young girl's plea to help her. Being the only witness to the crime, she unwittingly helps to convict Merk for the murder. The young girl, Desi, is now a grown woman, who is one of the best pool hustlers around; and when Merk is hired, by Desi grandfather, to keep her safe, he sees his chance to make her pay for putting him behind bars.
I love Debra's books. It's that simple. She has a way of showing a gritty, ugly side to the Moroad MC, and yet, somehow, she is able to endure these hardened criminals to our hearts. Merk is a haunted soul, and drink is his choice of addiction. Even when Merk was with Christine in For Life, the alcohol is what controlled his actions. Desi has a way of both infuriating him and calming him; and although the alcohol is always a temptation, Merk is finally finding peace with a woman who owes him.
I'm giving this highly anticipated continuation to her Moroad MC series 5 stars! More, Debra! We need More!
