Moving to Melbourne for university, Josie Alexander knew the transition would be hard. She didn’t realise just how difficult it’d be until things turn ugly. Damaged by a past that leaves her struggling with physical contact, her brave move to start afresh, soon turns into a nightmare.

Afraid and vulnerable, Josie’s fragile independence threatens to unravel around her. That is until the two men who refuse to leave her thoughts show up in Melbourne. 

Caden Adams, “Pick” to his biker brethren, has had a hard life. His only light is Josie, who he loses when she leaves Ballarat for Melbourne. Dealing with day to day life without his heart is hard, especially with the darkness threatening to consume him. When MC President, Talon, informs him that Josie’s in trouble, he’s determined to make sure he’s there to protect her. Only, he won’t be doing it alone. 

Eli “Billy the Kid” Walker has never experienced love, not even from those who should have cared the most. Only Josie and Caden have ever come close to infiltrating his hardened heart. With Josie gone, he pushes Caden away, unwilling to take a risk, even if it’s something he wants. 

When given with the opportunity to prove to each other how they really feel, will they all be able to have the courage to fight for what their hearts desire? Above all else, will they survive the fallout when their secret’s out?

I was born in Brisbane, Australia. My step-dad was in the Army, which caused us to move around a lot. We finally settled in country Victoria, Australia. I am the youngest of four children and I can say that I was spoilt a bit. I drove my mum crazy when I refused to eat meat at a young age. Now I live with my husband and two children, and I find myself regretting all the troubles I put my parents through because my monsters are just as picky as I was.

I started writing in 2013 and self-published the first of the Hawks MC Club series Holding Out. The next to follow was something different, I wrote Senseless Attraction, a YA novel. Soon I was back to the Hawks series with number two Climbing Out. I have more to write in the series, but there will be also be more novels in the humorous erotica genre, like Left to Chance, which is out now.

Is this one you've been waiting for? Yup me too and let me just say WOW. We got a glimpse in the last one that there was something going on with Josie while she was away at university, but not we find out exactly just what is going on. And who else would be there to save her than Caden and Eli!

Caden had one of way so beyond rough childhoods that you just have always known you want him to get his hea. He is sweet and caring in that hot bay boy biker way.

Eli might not have had things physically as difficult as Caden or Josie but emotionally his parents were never there. Finding a family in the MC was just what he needed and with Josie and Pick he knows it'll be even better.

If you've read the other stories in this series you'll know Josie's story and if you haven't seriously go back and read them! Josie went through more than enough that it should have scarred her for life, but instead she rose up above it and is determined to help others.

These three's story was a long while in the making and I couldn't be happier than how it all came together. I loved how even now when I think I know how the story will go there are still twists that keep me surprised. Very enjoyable and HOT read!
