Melia has decided to do a generous act. When her mother was going through chemotherapy, and then later when she succumbed to the horrible disease, only two people were there for her. Ryan, who was also going through her own hell with the disease and treatments and her boyfriend, Dirty. Dirty, what a name. His real name is Ellis, and he is not what you would expect from a member of a motorcycle club. He is kind and so sweet, just like the love of his life, Ryan. They helped her mother deal with the disease while she and Ryan had their treatments together. How could you not form a bond with someone when you both have poison dripping into your veins that can save your life but at the same time makes you feel like you are dying? As a result of the treatments and surgery, Ryan cannot carry a child. So Melia offers to carry a baby for Ryan and Dirty if In-Vitro works. After two rounds Melia is pregnant with Dirty and Ryan’s babies, ah yeah, twins.
Melia decides to leave DC, to move across country so Ryan can help Melia with her pregnancy. Melia is a photographer and she can take pictures anywhere, and can probably pick up clients for weddings in any part of the world. Melia is soon introduced to the other members of the MC, including Ryan’s brother Patrick, aka Wrench. He is a gruff, foul mouthed, egotistical man who is only looking for his next woman so he can have a sexual release. He is also the jerk that literally knocked her off her feet a few days before. When issues with her pregnancy arrive and she is put on bed rest, she has no choice but to move in with Ryan and Ellis. Unfortunately, that also means Wrench, as they all live at his very large house, that serves as the MC as well. Now Melia gets to see a lot more of Wrench and her attraction for this man grows. How can she be attracted to a man she loathes? Now, Patrick is also beginning to have feelings for Melia, and his belief that one night will get her out of his system has been proven false. Is a future with him really possible Melia wonders? Can he really trust someone with his heart, Patrick asks himself? What happens when someone else discovers how important Melia is to Wrench?
This is part of a series, and although I didn’t read the first book, it was easy to follow. Great characters and my heart ached for Melia after the babies were born. Good story, 4 stars.
