OMG this book…
Beau McIntyre is a member of the Knights Rebels and one of the main men involved in rescuing women from abusive relationships and situations. He has helped many women but only 1 woman has stopped him in his tracks and consumed his thoughts. Only 1 woman has ever made him FEEL.
“I don’t know what’s wrong with me. It’s not I usually act, but this thing with Mackenzie is affecting me more than I care to admit. Even when I first met her, I knew she was someone who could possibly change me into something else. What, I don’t know, but it’s messing with my head and I’m unsure how to process it.”
“Mackenzie Moore is running from a past she needs to forget.” River used that line in the synopsis and that is exactly what Mackenzie is doing. Beau and the Knights Rebels had rescued Mackenzie previously and left her safe and free to start a new life.
“This isn’t love. This is the devil’s kingdom and I don’t belong here. The flames from the pits of hell are burning my flesh from the outside, working their way underneath my skin, waiting to turn the flicker of hope I have left in to me to ash.”
When Mackenzie, Kenzie, returns to the Knights Rebels club house, and more importantly, to Beau, terrified for her life Beau and the rest of the Knights Rebels step up to help her again. Beau knows that he made a mistake in letting Kenzie get away once and he won’t do it again. He will help Kenzie fight for herself and for their relationship.
Beau NEEDS control and Kenzie is terrified to give a man any control over her life, her heart, and her mind. Can they find a balance that both of them are comfortable with? What happens when the Knights Rebels find out that Kenzie has been hiding something big from them the whole time she’s been back? What happens between Beau and Kenzie when this secret is revealed?
This book was absolutely freaking AMAZING! I have been where Kenzie was and it is terrifying. There are no words to describe the damage that one person can inflict on another through words alone, not even factoring in the violence. River did an AMAZING job with this book and this topic. Absolutely amazing! Even if you haven’t read any of the Knights Rebels books I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone. Can’t wait for the next one!
“Kenzie, I’m heading out. Will you be all right on your own?” I call out to her but receive no reply. Her door is ajar a few inches, so I knock, letting the force push it open further.
She is standing there. Her pert tits take my attention first and instantly my cock stirs back to life. She doesn’t stop to cover herself and I don’t look away.
“I’m heading out.” I manage some cough mumble thing, my throat becoming dry. She doesn’t say anything and her eyes don’t leave me. I should turn away, let her change in private, but I’m lost in the sight of her.
The soft glow of her bedside lamp highlights her against the dark room but even from this distance, I can see every one of those goose bumps glazing her skin.
We continue to stand silent for what feels like hours, until the soft whisper of her nightgown falling to the floor shocks me back, like the first momentary sonic boom that fills the skies on a Fourth of July weekend. My eyes follow its descent, pausing at the lace covering her pussy.
Jesus, fuck, turn around, man.
I swallow past my hunger and try to will myself to leave, but fail when her fingers hook into the side of her lace panties.
“Mackenzie, don’t.” My warning comes out strangled, my resolve slipping, but it doesn’t stop her. She continues to undress, sliding her panties down her legs then stepping out of them, leaving her completely exposed to me.
She’s beautiful. Fucking perfect. Every fucking inch of her. But there’s an innocence to her. One touch, one taste is going to destroy me.
What the fuck is wrong with you, man? Go to her. Fucking take her.
“Darlin’,” I say with a heavy breath, forcing my eyes away from her naked body and back up to her face. Her pink, plump lips, swollen from our kisses, slightly part as she draws in a long breath.
“You’re making this really fucking hard to stay away.” My voice cracks as my gaze catches her hand sliding between her legs.
“If you’re not going to help me, then leave.” Her voice is barely a whisper as her finger slips between her pussy lips disappearing from view. And fuck it turns me on.
Before I realize what I’m doing, my legs carry me to her. Not giving it a second thought, I slap her hand away from her pussy and pull her naked body to me. She comes willingly, a small cry filling the room at my touch.
“Fuck,” I groan, knowing I’m close to losing control. “I need you to think this through, darlin’. Be real fucking sure, ‘cause once we start, I don’t think I’ll be able to stop,” I tell her when her chest hits mine.
“I’ve never wanted anything more, Beau.” My name coming from her lips in a plea cancels out all my reservations, and before I can comprehend what’s happening, I have her on her back on the bed.
Pulling off my cut and shirt in record time, I flip the button of my jeans. Mackenzie comes up on her elbows and watches as I lose my jeans.
“Holy shit, you have it pierced.” She looks down at my cock, intrigue turning to wonder.
“I have two.” I point to the Apadravya piercing. The small barbell runs through the head of my penis. I then pull to show her the Frenum piercing on the underside of my cock.
“Did they hurt?” She bites her lip, her eyes not leaving the piercing.
“I survived. Had it done years ago.” She nods but doesn’t say anything.
“You keep looking at me like that and I don’t think I’ll last long,” I admit. Her inquisitive eyes move from my piercing up to my face and I realize it wouldn’t matter what way she looked at me. I’m wound up so fucking tight from not having my cock in a woman for God knows how long, I’m not going to last long regardless.
“Like what?” She looks back down at my cock and it bounces its own hello.
“Like you want to wrap your mouth around my dick and milk it dry,” I offer the visual, the picture playing out in my mind.
Yep, there is no way I’m going back on this, now.
“No one has ever spoken to me like this before.” Her teeth graze her bottom lip, and I don’t know if she’s afraid of me, or fucking turned on.
“You want me to stop talking to you this way?” I ask, placing a knee down on the bed and moving over her.
“I don’t think so.” She lays back, her dark hair spilling around her.
“You don’t think so? It’s a yes or no question, darlin’.” I keep my eyes on her, like I need to memorize every inch of her body.
“No,” she answers instantly.
“Then I won’t.”
