Allie Boden’s life changed two years ago when her mother was killed. Having just turned eighteen, she longs for a life away from her controlling, drug dealing stepfather and the unpaid hours at his dive bar.
Chase Halloway has dreams. Unfortunately for him he is also the son of Galt Halloway, notorious president of the Atlas Motorcycle Club. Galt has plans for Chase to take over the club and there is no leaving.
When Chase and Allie’s paths cross there is an undeniable attraction but being the son and stepdaughter of rival drug dealers prevents them from following their hearts. But when Allie is kidnapped and tortured, ready to be sold off to a drug lord, can she trust what she sees or will Chase save her before it is too late?
Lies, murder and mistrust all combine to make this a compelling series. This boxset comprises of : Finding Allie, Chasing Allie & Keeping Allie.
This is the first romantic suspense series by Meli Raine – (aka Julia Kent) and is as well written and engaging as her other books.
Allie is a sweet girl who has had a tough life. Being left in the care of her controlling stepfather, she saves every penny she can to escape his clutches, and although he has never cared for her he is oddly protective of keeping her innocence. Chase is the tough bad-boy biker, but is he as bad as he appears? There are definitely times throughout this book that I wanted to slap him, in fact Allie does at one point. I didn’t want to believe what I was reading and the emotions I felt on behalf of Allie shows the signs of a good author who can get under your skin with their characters.
There are some very romantic moments, and by this I mean hot, steamy intimate scenes. There are also elements of physical and emotional abuse. Although these are limited in their graphic descriptions, there are enough details after the events to imagine the pain and suffering caused to Allie.
With lies, secrets and surprises this series kept me gripped in the lives of the characters. A must read for anyone who enjoys romantic suspense.
