My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Tracker was part of a club that tried to take down the Deathstalkers. Of of just a few that had no idea what was happening, he takes a deal to pledge his loyalty rather than die. His first assignment is to work with an accountant to make their books look legit. He doesn't want to be here, afraid of running into the one woman he never wants to see again. Things don't always work the way we want though.
Megan used to have loving parents. Something changed along the way, and they just used her. They had fosters, and free care in the form of their daughter. After a devastating heartbreak, she leaves for college and never looks back. The hardest thing was leaving the kids. Making a future for herself needs to be her priority now and accounting is a stable form of income. She wants the new account coming in but could never expect the one person who walks through the door.
I feel like what Megan went through when she was young could very well happen to many. Bullied in school, taking care of foster siblings and the house, and feeling all the pressure and the vulnerability that comes with it. I wasn't surprised that she had a connection with Ryder. He showed her kindness and stuck up for her when she needed it. I love the easy relationship they developed and his need to ease her mind about what anyone thought of her. I enjoy reading a character that gives the other strength. It drove me nuts not knowing what happened that broke them apart. Each blames the other for missed years. What happens now that they're forced to work together? They need to figure out how to move past their issues enough to get the job at hand done.
There were times I truly wanted to smack Tracker in the back of the head. He couldn't figure out what he wanted from one minute to the next and was petty enough to use someone from the past to try and hurt Megan. Once we got past all of that? He was completely swoon worthy. He was a man who knew what he wanted and wasn't shy about it. When the past threatens the future, he'll need the help of his brothers to figure things out before it's too late.
Book six in the Deaths Deathstalkers MC series, and I loved it just as much as the other five. While they can all be read as standalones, I highly recommend reading them all. Follow all of these sexy, protective men and their exciting stories. I love the dual pov and the easy flow of the writing. It makes the books easy to read and leaves you wanting more.
