⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
This was the book I’ve been waiting to read, and it was so worth the wait.
Novah and Bayou have had a connection from a very young age, but because they were step siblings, they’ve ignored what that connection is.
Novah’s childhood drew her to her career as a Social Worker. She was determined to help kids and families that need it. She’s confident in her job and strong advocate for the family that needs the help. However, when one family needs to be protected it puts her in the firing line of the abuser and now she needs to be protected by her step brothers and their MC family. She’s not worried about being around them as she grew up with them, but Bayou, one of her stepbrothers, brings out a different side of Novah, and she’s worried about what could happen if she’s around him for too long.
Bayou has to keep his feelings in check when it comes to Novah, she’s his stepsister and off limits, but when she’s on danger his heart steps in and takes over. He has to fight harder to keep his hands to himself but it’s a losing battle.
I loved this story and I love the characters of the NOLA Defiance MC. They are strong, gritty, dark and lethal. When someone crosses a family member, they will pay, no matter what. Bayou and Novah are perfect for each other and the vulnerability that Bayou shows in this book is great. He knows who he can talk to for guidance and isn’t afraid to do it. I give this book a 5-star review and I look forward to more of the Defiance MC books by K. E. Osborn. I love her writing and her characters.
