Wreaking Havoc (Dead Presidents MC Book 2) by Harley Stone
Fresh out of jail, Dead Presidents MC Sargent at Arms, Marcus “Havoc” Wilson, is trying to lay low and keep his PTSD-induced temper under control while helping other military veterans rejoin society. In search of relaxation techniques, Havoc stumbles upon an alluring bookstore owner with a violent past of her own who’s able to calm him down in ways he’s never experienced.
Julia Edwards gave up her life of privilege the minute she tried to kill her ex-husband, and she doesn’t want it—or him—back. As a small Seattle bookstore owner, she’s determined to spend her days hidden between the covers of romance novels until her real-life fantasy appears and shakes up her entire existence.
Can these two attempted murderers find peace together? Or will the loose ends from their past unravel their future?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
We learned of Havoc in Link’d up (Dead Presidents MC book 1), when he was sent to prison for something he shouldn’t have been. Now he’s home, and trying to find an outlet for his temper, which keeps getting him in trouble. He starts gardening, as a hobby, but it doesn’t work out so well, and his plants keep dying. When it is suggested he pick up a book to see if he can figure out what he is doing wrong, he runs into bookstore owner, Julia. She has an interesting proposition for him!
Julia is an enigma. Sometimes she is ruthless, at others she is so vulnerable it makes me want to cry. At the beginning of the story, she doesn’t really know who she is anymore. Her whole entire world has been turned upside down, and she is trying to straighten it back out. She does, however, know what kind of person she wants to be, she is just having trouble keeping herself from sliding back into the person she was before. I guess that’s what Havoc is there for, to keep her straight!
Havoc and Julia light this book up like fireworks! This book is HOT! Their chemistry is amazing, and their personalities complement each other so well, they just fit! I enjoyed visiting with the characters of the Dead Presidents MC, and am looking forward to seeing just who is going to find their HEA next!
