Trapping Wasp (Dead Presidents MC #3) by Harley Stone
Andrew “Wasp” Marshall, VP of the Dead Presidents MC, rides life like it’s his bike, at full speed with no real destination. But when he sets his sights on an irresistible new bartender with a comical little kid, Wasp will have to decide if he’s willing to give up his carefree lifestyle and buckle down to become the man she needs.
Carly Cooper is a survivor. When an old friend turns from protective to possessive she packs up her five-year-old son and flees to Seattle, leaving everything and everyone she knows behind. Carly has neither time nor energy for Wasp’s advances, despite his panty-dropping smile and made-for-sin body.
As things between Wasp and Carly heat up, Carly’s past catches up to her and she must decide whether to trust Wasp and the Dead Presidents, or to pack up and run again.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Comprised of former military, the Dead Presidents is an MC dedicated to helping returning military reintegrate into society. They do their best to provide them with the resources they need to move on with their lives, regardless of what is needed. Whether that be a job, mental or physical support, or just brotherhood, they are there for each other when needed.
Wasp is a man that has never quite fit in. Coming from a large family full of over achievers, he has always felt like an outcast. Until he found the Dead Presidents MC, he wasn’t sure where he belonged. Being a mechanic, he hadn’t seen the type of action that most returning military has seen, and doesn’t have to deal with the types of issues most do. He is one that provides the support needed. He is satisfied with his life the way it is, and is a stereotypical MC brother. He likes the freedom, the ladies, and the lifestyle. He doesn’t think anything is missing, but after meeting Carly, he just can’t get her out of his mind.
Carly just can’t catch a break. Her life has been one bad turn after another. And just when she thinks she is moving on, finding the family she so desperately wants, those closest to her are lost in a tragedy, and she is running scared. She meets Wasp at her job, and is determined to resist him. She knows his reputation, and knows he isn’t good for her. Besides, she isn’t in a place to get involved, even temporarily, with anyone.
This story is a satisfying bit of MC romance. A strong story line, fun characters, and plenty of action combine to make a well written book that kept me entertained from the beginning to the end. Lots of heat, and more than a few laughs, lead me to recommend this book (heck, the entire series!) to anyone looking for some awesome reading.
