⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Jett’s going under cover to help Jackson and Slade get information on Jeffrey Lee. Hopefully they can find out who he works with and maybe get some leads on who else is involved in the human trafficking that he and his family ran, and hopefully where the women are being housed so they can save some of them at least. He’s DEA and normally wouldn’t be involved in this kind of case, but because he worked with Jackson, Slade and the FBI previously to put Jeffrey Lee’s father away, he is familiar with the case. The undercover stint will bring out a lot of demons for Jett and will also cause new ones. One being the female guard, Emma that he rescues during a prison riot two years into the undercover case.
Emma has always been a woman to live on the edge and pretty fearless. She is guard in a male prison and shows the inmates more respect than most of the guards do. She tries to treat them as humans rather than animals in a cage. One incident will change her, and she will become a woman afraid of everything. The trauma she goes through will stay with her and prevent her from living her life and only surviving. Her family is even afraid of upsetting her and treat her differently. When a new neighbor moves in and she starts noticing that he is doing small things to help her out, she is intrigued and when she recognizes him her world takes a turn again, but this time for the better, kind of.
I have loved the Broken Rebel Brotherhood MC Series and Jackson was a character that started this spin off into the Bastards and Badges Series, and I have loved this series just as much. The characters are great, the men are possessive, protective, and love fiercely. They want to protect their women with everything they have and if they don’t succeed, they beat themselves up about it. They do always get their women back and save them, but the time between when they lost them and then found them again is pure torture for them. These stories are action packed from the beginning to the end, the books are hard to put down and the women are stronger than they realize, but the men that love them are the ones that prove that strength to them. It’s great to see how these women transform from feeling broken, damaged, and afraid of everything to strong, sassy, and feeling beautiful. I love the characters that Ms. Rhodes writes, and the stories are awesome. I can’t wait for more from her. I love the Broken Rebel Brotherhood, Bastards and Badges, and Soulless Kings MC, and I am looking forward to books from all three series to come, hopefully soon. I give this story a 5-star review and cannot recommend it enough to readers. There are some triggers in this book and the topics, and some scenes are very hard to read, but they are written so well.
