⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Deception, secrets, betrayal, and survival.
Born the princess of the Celtic Reapers MC was not as great as most would have thought it was. She was not protected, doted on, or respected. Her father was a brutal man that only thought of what he could get out of anything or anyone. Shayla Callahan had a brutal life growing up in the MC and when she was able to, she went to Church and asked for her freedom, but she had to survive the job that would help her get that freedom, or will it make any difference?
He’s a computer geek and one the best hackers around. He was raised by Declan Doughty after his parents abandoned him. Being. The best friend of Liam Doughty, Liam went to his parents and asked them to adopt Kellan, and they did. Kellan’s hacking abilities escaped Declan’s knowledge, so he was able to leave the family when Liam did. Now he takes the jobs that he wants. So, when a member of the Celtic Reapers MC reaches out to him for help on a job, he meets with the person that reached out, only that person is not who he was expecting.
This was a tough story to read, but it was a good story. There is betrayal, deception, abuse, cruelty, and survival. Kellan and Shayla have a rough road, and with others in the background pulling strings, they don’t have a chance at all. When Shayla has to return to the compound, she feels that her life is over and decides to find a way to escape her reality until she can escape her circumstances. Shayla’s childhood love is there, but he decided to patch into the MC as a teenager. There are a lot of things going on this book, and it was done very well. I enjoyed the book, and the characters are great, they have so much to overcome in so many ways. I give the story a 5-star review and I am looking forward to Trust in Me.
