Title: Lion: Southside Skulls MC
Author: Jessie Cooke
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: September 29, 2019
The man all of Boston loves to hate, his beautiful daughter and a sad, lonely biker come together in this explosive tale of secrets and lies, respect, betrayal, and complicated adult relationships. They all have a lot to learn about love, but first they'll have to learn a lot about each other, and forgiveness.
When Madison first met Lion, the incredibly hot muscular biker, she couldn't deny how badly she wanted him or how strangely connected she felt toward him. But most of all, Madison was unable to deny that he was the most rude, insufferable introvert that she'd ever met, and that he was not at all interested in anything she had to offer.
When Lion met Madison he tried to deny his desire for the doe-eyed beauty, and the strange connection he felt toward her. Lion had spent so much of his life alone. He had lost all the people he'd loved the most and he had no reason to believe that Madison would be any different...especially since she was the daughter of the man who had hurt him most in life, a man he was sure he could never forgive.
Grant “Hawk” Benning gave up one of his kidneys for his daughter when she was two years old. He was at Lion's mother's side the day the boy was born. Hawk loved them both but he lived his life in a way that most people didn't understand, and he found out the hard way that sticking around for either one of them was going to be easier said than done. When Hawk gets a second chance to bond with his daughter, he grasps it with both hands. But secrets from his past and even those in his present just won't stay buried...no matter how hard he tries.
While Lion and Madison grapple with their feelings for each other and Hawk struggles to keep the past at bay, an old enemy returns to stalk Lion and one fateful night will bring twenty-two years of pain, suffering and anger to a head. The fallout will reach far and wide, and it will be one that none of them may survive.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
I so enjoyed this book!! What made ti even better was that it picked up pretty much where Hawk left off though it can be read as a stand alone for those that are curious though it is so much better if you read them all in order. I was dying to see what happened with Lion and Madison which Cooke was happy to address for us. They have a doozy of a tough time getting together with each of their pasts as well as Hawk butting in every chance he gets. Though the road is rough for them it works out in the end along with the final wrap of Hawk's story which I felt gave him a fitting ending to his story. If you enjoy tough bikers with rough pasts finding the one woman that can tame them you have to try this book/series. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
