Screw the rules.
Army veteran Richie Tallin returns to South Dakota from a disastrous war with nothing to gain and nothing to lose. With no real home, his family in shambles, his dad’s old motorcycle becomes the key to a new life as Wreck, the Road Captain of an outlaw motorcycle club. Now he’s living the life he’s always craved—freedom, good times, loyalty, no regrets, and, hell yes, no rules.
But when he finally gets a chance with Isi, a feisty girl he’s had his eye on for years, everything shifts. As fiercely independent as Wreck, Isi is determined to restart her life and keep her family’s business afloat while she hides a wounded past. She and Wreck light a fire in each other that’s unexpected and wild, and what begins as a casual fling becomes passionate and serious real fast.
Life is good.
But when a war of revenge, payback, and power breaks out, everyone gets caught in the crossfire. Choices are made. Sacrifices that can never be undone. In a crazy 80’s world of drug dealers, rock and rollers, and rival outlaws, Wreck and Isi are determined to hold on come what may.
And come it does.
Few know how the One-Eyed Jacks MC of Meager came to be. And fewer still, how the love of one woman changed the destiny of a small town in the Black Hills of South Dakota forever.
“My Isi was a dream I never knew I had until right then.”
Cat Porter is my go-to author for gritty, mature, sexy and exciting biker romance. Wreck’s book, while technically a prequel to the ‘Lock & Key’ Series, can be read on its own but is absolutely a must-read for anyone who has followed the series since the beginning.
This book begins with Wreck returning home from Vietnam. He is a lost soul, tormented by the war and by his fractured relationship with his mother. Wreck sees the world now through different eyes, and I can see how he would seek out others who share his background and beliefs.
“Color made no difference to me. Meeting all the men and women from all over who’d come to my dad for their bikes when I was a kid, and then fighting for survival on the other side of the planet, side by side with black, brown, yellow, and red—nothing but loyalty made sense to me. “Frowned upon” made no sense to me no more. Not a lick.”
This story ties the lives of Wreck, Miller and Grace together and I loved the return to Meager, South Dakota. I devoured this book in one sitting and loved the emotional roller-coaster of action and romance! Although this book does not have a traditional HEA as with most romance books, the ending and Epilogue is sure to leave every reader satisfied.
At the core of this book is the history of how the One Eyed Jacks MC arrived in Meager and how the brotherhood was formed. These men all later become the heart and soul of the ‘Lock & Key’ Series. And while Wreck’s relationship with Isi was not any sense a traditional one, it was intense, all-consuming and breathtaking. Theirs was a unique and beautiful love story.
If you have ever wanted more Cat Porter after reading the ‘Lock & Key’ Series, then you will devour Wreck’s story. The author has written yet another gorgeous book about life, family, loyalty, love, and the unbreakable bonds of brotherhood.
