Clover Fields was like any other kid living for today and not looking to the future. She went to college accruing student loan debt and whenever a charge card was mailed to her went right out shopping. She married, divorced and was left with his debt as well. After all was said and done she was hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. She knows that her life will consist of trying to get out from under until she finds a duffle bag in her gym locker stuffed with cash.
Clover didn’t take much thought as to how or why that bag was left in her locker but took it and paid off her debts. It wasn’t until she was faced with the truth of who the money belonged to and how her life was now in serious trouble that running became her only option and with no actual destination she boarded a bus and left town. Arriving in Texas her first order of business was to find a cheap car and that car would change her life.
Raze Rouen went through a hell of his own, raised by an uncle, married and divorced and time spent in the military. When he returned to his home town of Dripping Springs he was an empty shell especially after the death of his uncle. He spent his days and nights alone with a bottle until his friend Brash forced him to rejoin the human race. Brash and the others from the MC rallied around him and before he knew it he was the owner of a bar called the Raze & Ruin Roadhouse.
It was out front at the Roadhouse that Clover took possession of her new car only when she went to start it it wouldn’t start. She entered the Roadhouse looking for the seller and from that moment on two lives would change. Clover found herself with an apron working as a server replacing the waitress that did not show up and the next day Raze helped her with her car, a car that started right up for everyone but her.
What happened between Raze and Clover is something you would have to find out for yourself and believe me you won’t be sorry. Although this is the fifth book in the series and I haven’t read the first four there was no problem. Victoria Danann is one of my favorite authors and writes one of my favorite series The Brotherhood of the Black Swan and I am amazed that I never looked closer to see if there were other books she wrote a mistake I will not make again. I read this book in one day because it was that good. I now know that there is a lot of great reading ahead of me since I finally realized how there are other great series by Ms. Danann waiting for me.
