⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Wow! Steamy, intense, dangerous and deadly. Ice is a man that won’t let anything slip by him. He’s the VP of the Red Horsemen and the son of the President. He didn’t get his patch just because he’s the president’s son, he earned that patch just anyone else in the club has to earn theirs. He rose through the ranks at a young age and the destroyed the boy he was. Now he’s as cold as Ice when his adversaries are in his sights. He believes he has no heart, and he is not a man who knows how to love, but he shows his love in other ways, especially with his little sister Layla “Red”.
Rae is a woman on the run, but her life now is so much different than it was growing up. A tragedy and betrayal made her the woman she is now, and she doesn’t get close to anyone. So why is that she feels like she’s home when she lands in Harrison looking to work in the tattoo shop? Sketch the owner of the shop and tattoo artist that hired her is confused when he meets her and almost sends her away, but he gives in and decides to give her a chance when she convinces him that she can handle herself. Layla works in the shop too and she stands to the side smiling when Sketch meets Rae. Rae is following her mother’s last dying wish, her mother told her “If you ever find the sun missing from your sky, there. Promise me.” So here she is, but she isn’t planning to stay very long. She’s been on the run for four years and she can’t let them find her or catch up to her.
I loved this story. It was so intense and hard to put down. Rae has no idea why she has stayed so long in this town, or how or why she has become so close to Layla and the brothers of the MC. It’s the first time in years that she has felt safe and at home. Her life has been on hold for so long and she’s been alone for so long that it feels nice to feel respected, needed and cared about. I was so disappointed when I came to the last page and found out there was a cliffhanger and that I would have to wait a month for the rest of the story. I was so engrossed in the story that I didn’t realize I was coming to the end. I give this book a 5-star review and am very excited for Claimed. I love the characters and the story. The men of the Red Horsemen MC have no idea what has hit them when Rae shows up to work in Branded. I would love to read Layla’s book too as well as more of the other Horsemen after Claimed. I do believe that I have found a new to me author to stalk and her books to horde.
