Series: Hell's Handlers MC Florida Chapter #1
Author: Lilly Atlas
Genre: MC Romance
Travis Bryant, known in the biker world as Curly, spent thirteen hard years behind bars for a heinous crime he didn’t commit. When the truth finally sets him free, nothing remains of his former life. Curly can’t imagine living without the brotherhood of a club. After visiting the Hell’s Handler’s MC, he’s given the go-ahead to open a charter in his home state. Claiming an ol’ lady is the furthest thing from his mind until he meets Brooke, the beautiful, hardheaded dog trainer bent on ending a violent dogfighting ring near her home.
After ten long years married to an abusive narcissist, Brooke vowes she’ll never live under another man’s thumb again. Accepting help doesn’t come easy, but when abandoned dogs begin popping up with fatal injuries, she’ll do anything to put an end to the fighting ring responsible. Even enlist the assistance of the most attractive man she’s ever met and his outlaw MC brothers.
From her feisty, independent spirit to her shapely legs, Brooke appeals to Curly on every level. He can’t stay away, but he’s been burned before and refuses to tie himself to a woman again. Brooke is in a similar boat, having promised herself no man would exert control over her life again. Unfortunately, she can’t kick the curly-haired, muscular man in biker boots out of her head or her bed.
As Brooke and Curly grow closer and danger strikes, will they be able to overcome their past traumas and find strength in each other? Or will they remain stubborn and stick to their guns as their lives crash and burn?
I had been hoping Curly would get his own book when he was first introduced in Little Jack because this man deserves a happily ever after and I am sooo thrilled that he is finally getting it and not only that we also have a New Chapter of the Hell's Handlers to fall in love with as well!
Travis, aka Curly, spent thirteen years in prison for a crime he didn't commit now that he has been out for several months he feels he needs to head back to Florida and with the Hell's Handlers standing behind him he's confident he will be able to start the new Chapter and find the brotherhood he had always wanted.
Brooke left an abusive marriage and has been getting her life back on track, she fosters dogs that need a little extra TLC and helps train them so they can be placed with a loving family. Needless to say when Brooke finds out about a Dog Fighting Ring close to her home she isn't happy about it and wants it stopped.
Both Brooke and Curly have been hurt in the past so they have each vowed to themselves that they will never fall for someone again, and you know that idea is thrown out the window when they meet. I loved Curly in Little Jack and now that I know more about him I love him even more! Brooke is the perfect woman for him, she's feisty and independent, she has a loving heart and is kind to everyone...unless they cross her. The chemistry between the two was smokin' hot.
This was an excellent intro to the new series, I look forward to watching each of these new MC Brothers find the perfect person for them. If you enjoy Romantic Suspense, MC Romances, or are looking for a Steamy read that features a Bad Boy & Good Girl, this is the book for you.
