After the upheaval in the last installment, everything appears to be settling down. The Spartan Riders are still rebuilding the damage caused. They have to be extra careful now that they are under the scrutiny of the law. They are hoping that it will take a while before the opposition regroups but, they couldn't be more wrong! 

Repo is the Vice President and the oldest member of the Spartan Riders. His first marriage ended in divorce and he has no intention of settling down. He likes playing the field. Until now. He has a battle on his hands, but he intends to win! 

Ginger aka Red is the club's barmaid and it's the only family that she has. She is a confidante to the brothers. Her marriage was violent and now that she is divorced, she has sworn that no man would ever boss her around. She is not short of bed partners and is satisfied with the arrangement. 

Repo has a change of heart and wants to settle down. He has set his sights on Ginger who used to have a crush on him. She still likes him and despite their past history, she is not prepared to get hurt yet again. She notices that the brothers are polite to her but, keep her at arm lengths. When she gets to hear the reason why, she flips and will fight for her "freedom"! Can Repo change her mind? 

There is an attack on one of the brothers and they realise that there is another war brewing. Whoever is targeting them must be obtaining information from the inside. Who? The problems escalate to the point of kidnapping and the brothers decide that retaliation is in order. They are not prepared to put their families in any more danger and this creates tension and discord between some of the members. It also affects some of their relationships. To add to it all, the girls are no longer prepared to be kept in the dark. A dangerous predicament! 

Repo and Ginger are two of a kind. Stubborn! I found Repo to be too heavy handed at times, whilst Ginger's defiance is a little over the top. Their interactions are stimulating and hot as Hades! 

This installment brings new and dangerous players on the scene. It's fast paced and the plot is well developed. Although it ends on a positive note, there are so much more still at stake, and I look forward to the next installment. 

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
