When a King loves He loves hard
CADE I’ve loved her since we were five years old. We grew up side by side. Two kids tied together by the Kings of Mayhem Motorcycle Club. But I broke us. I broke her. So, she fled. Now she’s back after twelve long years. And I’m going to show her all the reasons why we should be together and make her forget all the reasons why we shouldn’t.
INDY I’m back in town but only because I have to be. I’m here to help my mom bury my father. And the sooner we get it done, the better. Because I want to see Cade as much as I want a hole in the head. He broke me once—no, he broke my everything— and I’ll be damned if I’ll let him do it again. Get in and get out. That is the plan. But you know what they say about best-laid plans.
King of Mayhem is the first book of the Kings of Mayhem series. I saw this book on Netgalley and I was really intrigued by the synopsis and lately I have been in the mood for MC romances (not sure why) but I really was also in the mood to try out a new author, I don’t do it too often and Penny Dee is definitely a new to me author. I would like to point out that this book contains a cliffhanger and even though I HATE cliffhangers, I will mention that the cliffhanger in this story is not around the relationship, that has a more HFN feeling, but there are other events that leaves you hanging and I am curious on how the next book will develop.
Cade and Indy have been in love since they were children. They were next door neighbors, grew up together, protected each other and were each other’s firsts. They also both were raised in the Kings of Mayhem MC. They had every hope for the future, but right when they were ready to go to college, Cade and Indy were broken apart and Indy left home and the man she loved and became a highly respected ER Doctor. But when her father dies, she comes home for his funeral and is thrown back in the world she had tried to forget and also and has to face up to Cade once more, the man she never stopped loving.
I was really on board with these two, although I did find that Indy was way judgmental and I didn’t care for her character too much to be honest at least until the end there. I found the story to be a quick and easy read, and I did like Cade quite a bit. He never gives up on fighting for Indy and what they have always had together. I really adored his determination but there is quite a bit of lessons that Indy has to learn and to overcome her own mistakes and judgments. But I am curious to see what will happen in book two. *crossing my fingers* I will enjoy seeing these two again and may it not have another cliffhanger and will be a winning conclusion.
