Have you looked at me? How the hell am I supposed to pull off a biker babe?

Publisher’s Synopsis:
Special Agent Luna Roosberg lives and breathes her job. Who needs a personal life when work is so rewarding?

When a new case sends her to investigate a local motorcycle club, covering as the president’s new flavor of the week, the lines between professional and personal quickly start to blur.

Although the Arrow’s Edge MC stays mostly on the right side of the law since Ouray took the gavel, the appearance of the feds at their gate can still rattle his cage.
When a string of robberies points squarely in Ouray’s direction, he’s forced to cooperate and put the blonde, prim and proper half-pint on the back of his bike.

With pressure mounting both in—and outside—the club, Ouray no longer knows who he can trust, except the woman who is shaking up his life—and stirring his blood.

Point of view:
1st person. Alternating between Luna & Ouray’s perspectives.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
This is book 3 in the Rock Point series. While you don’t have to listen to Keeping 6 and Cabin 12 to enjoy this, I’d definitely recommend it. Especially since Luna is in both and she meets Ouray in book 2. Series is best enjoyed in order.

Content Warning (contains spoilers):
Normally I put these at the end. However, rape of major characters, including a child, are pretty major themes throughout the book and will be discussed in my review.

This is my favorite in the series so far. I’ve always enjoyed Luna as the skilled and take no flack operative secondary character. Opposites attract & fake relationship relationship tropes are really well done here when Luna goes semi-undercover as Ouray’s love interest to discover who is murdering and stealing guns.

I loved Ouray and Luna individually and as a couple. Both are over 40 and figure their lives are just what they are. However, fake dating turns into so much more for them. I really liked how understanding and supportive Ouray is when he learns Luna was the victim of a sexual assault during college.

While Ouray respects her skills, Luna has to hide her normally commanding personality to the often misogynistic culture of Motorcycle Clubs in order to fit in. It creates a really unique dynamic. I liked how they worked together to uncover who is behind the weapons trafficking.

Add in a orphaned teen, found family, and several action packed scenes and this was the perfect romantic suspense for me. I loved the epilogue too.

Casting for this series continues to be spot on. Sebastian York’s deep, gravely voice is a great match for Ouray’s personality. I really enjoyed Brooke Hayden’s Luna – contrasting the strong and vulnerable perfectly.
