Let's start with Marla Marie, when we first meet her I felt for her and admired how she fought to survive & fend for herself. Than as a teenager I just found her to be irritating. And really I thought as she got even older that her attitude didn't really change and I found h ...more
Another hit from our MC Queen.
This phenomenal saga was so raw, angsty, real and unconventional.
We start by meeting Marla Marie age 10 who since a young age has to struggle with being left alone and looking for food.
Dutch Owen is 30 year old biker, who rides for WAKOM MC and he loved being on the open road.

At the age of 10 Marla is roamin ...more
What do you do when you find a dirty, skinny little girl literally licking catsup off a plate? You invite her to follow you and get her food. So begins STAGE ONE of their story.
She should have had parents looking for her or at least some adult. He followed to make sure. What he found led him to an answer to the question of how he would help his sister who'd just had another devasting loss in her life. Could Marla and Rachel fill the void for each other?
Dutch became her safe ...more
His sister is the perfect solution. She needs a child to love and Marla Marie needs a mother figure to love and care for her. While Marla Marie is well ...more
I always love a good hero and Dutch really fits the bill. He rescues a ten year old Marla Marie when he catches her ragged and dirty and eating leftover scraps. Dutch is 20 years older than her. This story takes us on their journey where he takes her to his sister to raise and eventually they marry and have children of their own.
In the past few books this author seems to be delving more into age gap romances, mostly very young girls. While I don't have anything against them, ...more
Even as gruff as Dutch was Marla Marie knew he would take care of her.
There was times I wanted to slap Marla Marie upside the head for being so closed off from the people trying to help her. You get to be inside both their heads so to speak it helps understand why things are or happened the way they did.

I've loved some of her other books but this one was just not for me. I feel bad saying something negative about a book. Takes an author a lot of time and hard work to write a novel. I just can't think of anything nice to say about this one. Inappropriate, maybe. Boring, definitely. (I feel guilty, but save you ...more
As you may imagine not everyone approved or understood their relationship. I personally loved the way t ...more
We meet Marla at only 10 years old and follow her through the ups and downs into adulthood. Her constant love for Dutch never fades, even when he tries to do everything he can to keep her away.
The drama, love, heartache, and fire between the two make for one crazy ride.
Could not put this one down! I honestly loved everything about their story and I never wanted it to end.
Believing everyone deserves to love and be loved, she takes the most unlikely characters and turns them into heroes and heroines.
She lives with her fa ...more
