In darkness, we find danger. In danger, I find Beau.
Ash is a prison guard, she's tough, she's strong and she never backs away from a fight. She takes her job seriously, she takes her training seriously, and everything in her life goes as planned.
Until the day he is brought into the prison.
She'll never forget meeting Beau 'Krypt' Dawson for the first time. She'll never forget his haunted eyes and his numb expression. He's a member of the Jokers Wrath MC and it is said he killed an innocent family in the middle of a cafe, in cold blood.
Deranged. Crazy. Psychotic.
All those words describe the infamous Krypt, but Ash suspects there's far more to the quiet man than meets the eye. Secrets are being hidden by the club, information is being kept under wraps. Krypt is silent for a reason.
Ash is desperate to know that reason.
Continually fighting, Krypt is transferred to a high security prison. Ash is in charge. She's always prepared, always alert. Not even her skills will stop the club from ambushing them and taking back Krypt. Only Ash ends up right in the middle of it.
They take her, too.
Now she's stuck with a Motorcycle Club who are tougher than any prisoner she's ever laid eyes on. And they won't let her go. She's too much of a risk. Until the situation can be sorted, they send her and Krypt into the mountains together....alone.
An epic, dangerous love will be built on the foundations of darkness.
“You gave me a chance when no one else did; you believed in me. It’s enough.”
Woohoo! A new MC series by Bella Jewel! I enjoyed her previous MC series, as well as her Contemporary Adult books, so I it was a no brainer to give this a try. The synopsis was very intriguing, particularly the part where the heroine is a guard/corrections officer. A corrections officer! Yea. That’s definitely a new one. This should be interesting.
“The minute I saw you, the minute you opened your mouth, there was something about you I’d never seen in a lady before. It’s not just about the fucking. Ash – it’s about the fact that you give me something no one else ever has.”
When it came to careers, Ash wanted something different. She couldn’t see herself working behind a desk nor a cashier; she wanted something challenging. Being a female guard has its disadvantages, but believe it or not, she’s good at her job. She has a certain rapport with the prisoners, but in no way is she a pushover; this chick knows how to protect herself. She has good days and certainly bad days, but her life is about to change when a certain Biker is sent to her prison.
Beau, a.k.a. Krypt, is sent to prison after being accused of murder. However, the witnesses are a bit sketchy on the details and still awaiting trial. He also knows that the murder was a setup from a rival MC and that he’s not completely safe in prison. Dirty guards are all over the place and make his life even more difficult. But the one person he cannot understand is Ash. Why this woman even tries to understand him is an enigma. When a transport to another prison goes wrong, he and Ash are thrust back into his world.
“I’m fucking keepin’ you, Ash. Because there is no way I can go through my life without feeling that kind of intensity again.”
This book was hot and certainly entertaining, I cannot deny that, but it wasn’t perfect. The story, for the most part, was well paced and kept me turning the page. Krypt and Ash…Wow! Their bedroom chemistry was ridiculously steamy…and downright kinky. The biggest thing that bothered me about their story, and kept me from giving them a full four stars, was the ending.
**SPOILER** I never really thought about the actions of Ash, Krypt and Maddox (the MC’s president) until I saw them through the eyes of Santana, Maddox’s ward (I guess you can call her that). As much as I enjoyed that MFM scene, I did feel that Ash did betray Santana. No matter, I did enjoy this and am looking forward to Maddox & Santana’s story and more from this MC Series.
