His Sweetness (The Wounded Souls #1) by Leah Sharelle
I am so f**king in love with you, Charlie, that I can’t see straight.
Ex-Commando Deck Johnston has a busy life. He is the boss of a successful construction company, the co-founder and sergeant at arms of the Wounded Souls MC, and a single father to a three-year-old, blue-eyed, raven-haired princess, who has a liking for swearing, toy guns, camo, and pink tutus.
Deck’s life is full, and he isn’t looking for anything more.
That is until the sweet ballet dancer and his daughter’s daycare teacher comes along and knocks the weapons expert on his arse.
Charlotte’s life is not going the way she had expected. An injury ended her career too early. She is in debt to her cold-hearted family, drives a POS car, lives in a shoebox, and owns an abnormally large cat that hates her. She didn’t expect to fall for the father of her favourite student, but with one look into his sapphire-blue eyes, her life is turned upside down.
In their way to love, will Deck trust Charlotte with his daughter? Will he let her help him beat the PTSD ravaging him from his years of deployment?
Will Charlotte find the love she has always craved and finally get the Happily-ever-after she has always dreamed about?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the first book by this author, but I’d not know it if I hadn’t looked it up before reading. This story was so amazing, I read it in one sitting! It is reminiscent of some of my favorite MC stories, but has its own spin.
Deck is a single father, former military, construction worker, as well as Sergeant at Arms for the Wounded Souls MC (so many tropes, all of them favorites!). Charlotte is his daughter’s preschool dance teacher, but also a former ballerina, with secrets! The instant attraction between the two set my heart beating fast! Such HOT chemistry! Whoo!
This story shows the soft side of a group of bikers, and introduces us to their world. It shows us that even bad bikers can be big teddy bears, given the right circumstances. There is lots of action, a few heart stopping moments, and promises of things to come (I’m hopeful for future books!). It’s exactly what I look for when I’m looking for a new author to love! This is a fabulous beginning for this author, and if this book is an example of what is to come, will quickly go on my one click list!
