The word Strength definitely belongs in the title of this book! Hayden had strength like no other! She battled to overcome her past, she fought and held faith that she would have the man she loved and she stayed strong when that past tried to hurt her again. And through it all she held her and her sons life together without breaking.
Crooner had demons of his own and battles in his mind that kept him from giving in. I was so glad when he got his head out his butt and claimed her and made a family
Michelle Brace (Wicked Babes Blog Reviews)
This book held me in its clutches from the very beginning. I remember her from the first book and was looking forward to her story. I could NOT put this book down until the very last page and even then the book stuck with me.

I loved Hayden so much. She is a survivor and when most people would break she does what it takes to survive. She has been through so much in her young life and she is finally starting to be independent and find some happiness. Now if only the man that she loves would stop

Britt The Red Hatter Book Blog
Loaded with scorching heat, nail biting suspense, and deeply emotional love Chased With Strength is a book that completely takes you over the second you start reading. The story gripped me and I could not put this book done for even a second while I was reading. Hayley Faiman has a fantastic way of writing a story that is full of romance that sweeps you off your feet while still maintaining the raw grit of the MC world.
While there is sweetness, Chased With Strength isn’t sugarcoated. This perfe

I love all of Hayley Faimans books they always become instant five star reads by the first page , Chased with strength can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest that you read Laced with Fear first you might run into some spoilers if you don't . I always fall for the heroines before the heroes because they can be very frustrating at times but once they get over there hang ups and claim their women I fall deeply for them . Hayden is a wonderful character we met her in the first book in the ...more
Let's start off by saying that Hayley is one of my favorite author's as she always creates wonderful character's for us to love and cry over each and every-time.

Crooner & Hayden made one hot super couple.the sparks and chemistry and the love they had for one another made it so easy to love and read about them and their amazing love story.

Hayden and Crooner have had past history albeit not a intimate one as Crooner took part in saving her from a hellish life that was filled with abuse and sexual

This is the second installment of the Notorious Devils Cash Bar series by Hayley Faiman.

Why am I such a big fan of Hayley Faiman? Because she always delivers on a story filled with drama, emotional turmoil and exceptional characters. This book is no different.

Usually I am all for opposites attracting but in this case Hayden and Crooner are more alike than they realize. Both are so emotionally damaged from their pasts and want to love and be loved but don't think they deserve it. This author is

I waited for this book for a what seemed like forever! We were first introduced to Ward aka Crooner and Hayden in Laced with Fear. Hayden was an underaged mother that the Crooner’s MC rescued from the dastardly Aryans. Right from the moment they met, they gravitated to each other, but there were hurdles to being together - Hayden’s underage and traumatized and Crooner is in his 30’s. Despite these issues, I couldn’t wait to read their book. Hayden is not going to stay underage forever and I want ...more

Just wow Hayden is such a strong woman in this book. She is a single mother and does not give up like most would do in her position,

Crooner has known loss but finding his chosen brothers has helped him in the best ways.
These two both just need to be chosen and cherished as themselves and that's it, they are so attracted to each other and just need to let it happen as it should

Hayley Faiman has a way with words that just pulls you in every single time...

The Cash Bar series is back with its next sexy and suspenseful installment, Chased With Strength. This book was better, more intense, more dramatic, more dangerous, and more everything I knew it would be after reading book one. We are thrust back into the lives and drama of some of our favorite men and women as they battle love and evil on a very thin line.

Chased with Strength is not for the faint of heart, as there's nothing easy about any of it. Hayden, my poor Hayden's life was taken from her when she was a teenager, only to become a nightmare of epic proportions. She's saved by the Notorious Devils at 17 years old & pregnant, but it takes everything in her to put the past behind her. Crooner wasn't exactly raised in the easiest of ways, but when he became an orphan, he joined the Notorious Devils for all the family he needed. But then Hayden c ...more

Hayden has a past which is filled with baggage, she never gives up and has the strength of a woman who is determined to give her son a family that both of them deserve. Ward “Crooner” has denied himself for years, growing up with parents that had some belief’s he knows is wrong but can’t seem to shake. Crooner has to make a decision, claim her as his own or set her free.

This book brings up a lot of dark issues and takes you on a journey that you don’t even know how Hayden is surviving each day.

This book was supercharged with heat and emotion. Rescued from the type of life one can only imagine, Hayden is a survivor. Used and abused by men her entire life, at the tender age of eighteen, she is a mother to a beautiful baby boy that she might've resented considering his parentage, but whom she loves enormously and lives her entire life for. You'd think she'd either be terrified of men or be a man-hater but she's finding her way past the fear. There is one man that not only makes her feel ...more

I'm just going to go ahead and jump into my review and hopefully not write out a long first paragraph. This is the second book in the Cash Bar series and follows Crooner and Hayden. We meet both of these characters in the first book Laced with Fear.

I'll start with Hayden. If you don't remember who Hayden, she is one of the girls who was abducted by the Aryians. And than she was dropped on the doorstep of the Canadian chapter of the Notorious Devils by a Nomad. Hayden is a young woman, well I c

Hayley has this amazing ability to drop readers into a story with drip feeding the back history throughout the story.

So first of all, I have to say that Hayley came up with some very unique premises to this book. Crooner believes in anal, ONLY. Period. So girls keep having their period. Sex is only for procreation, so anal it is.

Have you gotten past anal only? Good. You're still with me.

When Hayden was rescued in a previous book, she started working at Cash Bar, one of the old ladies looked after her son, Easton, while she worked and Crooner/Ward took it upon himself to keep her safe. All was going well in her life now except for one thing... Crooner wouldn't give into his feelings of desire he felt for her. They both knew how the other felt but for various reasons, Crooner felt Hayden deserved better than him. When another brother shows an interest t

There was so much going on in this book! So I had not read the first book in this series or any of the books from the original series, and I felt like I was missing a part of the story when I started reading. There were some jumps in time at the beginning and I am not sure if it was explained in other books or if it was just like that. It made it pretty hard to understand at the beginning. As the story went on, things were kind of explained how the relationship started, but not much. I wish I wo ...more

This was a good continuation of book one in the Cash Bar series. Although it could be read as a standalone, it really helps understanding the story line better if you read book one, Snake and Ginger’s story. Also, the guys from the original Notorious Devils series make a cameo, Fury&Co.

I was so curious to find out how Crooner and Hayden would find their happy ending. It really didn’t seem like they’d be a good fit. He is thirty-five and bitter, not looking to settle down. She is ninet

I liked this story. I loved Hayden. Her story was so sad and you have such compassion for her. It was horrible what had happened to her and she can't help but have hang ups.

Now Crooner, royally pissed me off. Yes, I get that the way he was raised and what his father taught him was hard to forget. Lord help me I wanted to throttle him more than once. All these men can be rough around the edges, we get that. But most tend to not put their giant foot in the mouths on the daily. He was constantly sa

Crooner and Hayden both with only themselves in the world find that they can’t be without the other! Crooners tried to push Hayden away but when someone steps up to do what he’s to afraid of Crooner decides he wants Hayden and her beautiful boy for himself but what no one sees coming is the demon lurking in the dark! Hopefully the Notorious Devils and Hayden herself can find a way to escape what could be her new reality!

Having read Hayley Faiman before, I knew that I would love Chased with Strength. Although it may be a bit taboo for some, this was right up my alley. A May-December relationship can be so refreshing, especially when each are a bit damaged.

Love is what we make it and it comes with it's own challenges, although the rewards can outweigh said challenges. Love comes with fear of the unknown. From insecurities from past relationships to damage due to heartbreak. However ... that one special person ca

This book was unexpectedly emotional and heartwarming. This story has a gritty start but soon blossoms into an incredible pairing of two people that need love in the worst ways. Hayden is attempting to build a future for her and her son after years of disappointment. She wants to be the strong woman that Crooner knows she is. Crooner has demons of his own to battle and could easily miss out on the love of his life until something sparks deep in his heart. That is when everything changes and oh m ...more

Loved Hayden and Crooner

The second book in the Cash Bar series brings us Hayden and Crooner’s story. I loved Hayden, she was strong and fiery and knew what she wanted, and as hard as she tried so couldn’t walk away!! Crooner was your typical biker, he believed he wasn’t worthy, he protected Hayden and wanted what he thought was best for her, but when you love someone nothing and no one will ever be good enough.

This story was really well written; loved the glimpses of the men from this series an

This was just meh for me. It was parts. It was parts. It just wasn’t my favorite read from Hayley. I think it had more to do with the characters and the story than it did with the writing. I wasn’t crazy about how Crooner was such a dick. He kind of pissed me off actually. I’m not big on the “weak” female but I did like Hayden.

Loved this story. You could definitely feel the push and pull attraction between Hayden and Crooner. Their story wasn’t easy, but it was real. They had to endure a lot to get the HEA they both deserved.
Crooner was at times frustrating, at times sweet, and always pure Alpha!
Hayden felt she was broken, that because of how she was brought up, she was unworthy of true love. But she was strong. And deep-down she knew what she wanted, and that was Crooner.
This story had it all, danger, romance, sexy
Boy, I was not expecting this book to be good. The first one in the series was super bad(Proceeds to check that review) so my expectations were low... mind you, the Notorious Devils is very well written and thought out.

Crooner’s thoughts on sex were nonsensical and I could not see myself believing that someone believes that. However, I come from a very different culture so 🤷🏽‍♀️.
Hayden was very mature and well developed for her age and I liked how the author didnt live on the age diff too much

A Hayley Faiman book that once again does not disappoint.
I absolutely devoured this book. These series involving the Notorious Devils has hot alpha males with the strongest women I have ever read about.
Crooner and Hayden have secretly ( they think) loved each other for two years since he rescued her from the most horrific of lives anyone could think of. He believes he's no good for her... she knows differently.
What follows is the most suspenseful, hot, thrilling and beautiful story.

I love this series so much the first book was amazing, but this one was so much better. The wait was too long but so worth it. It was impossible to put this book down. Hayden is an underage mom who has been through so much in her life. She was saved by the MC from the Aryans who kidnapped her. Crooner has his own demons of his own that won't let him believe that he is right for Hayley and Easton. This was an easy read. I loved their story and how
