Talon & Claree: Rebel Guardians Next Generation by Liberty Parker & Darlene Tallman
When I came to live with Chief and Trinity as a teenager, I met Talon. He understood what I was feeling and going through and we became best friends. Our friendship grew and despite everyone’s best efforts, we found times to slip away and be together. All was going well until we became a teenage statistic. Now, years later, we’re still together, but his involvement with the club as a newly patched member means we’ve grown apart.
I still love him with everything I have in me, but something’s got to give. I can’t talk about it with my mom because she doesn’t understand, and I’d feel disloyal talking to his mom about him.
The first time I saw Claree, I was hooked. And even though we both knew it was wrong to sneak around, we let our hormones be our guide and well, we got caught. I’ve been prospecting for the Rebel Guardians since I was eighteen and finally earned my patch a few years ago. Life should be good…I’ve got the girl of my dreams, an awesome son, and am in a loving, family-oriented environment. But I’m always gone, learning each of the club’s businesses, and it’s put a strain on our relationship. I’m at the end of my rope and drowning the day I get that phone call only to hear her terror-filled screams before…nothing.
Talon and Claree have hit a rough patch in their young lives. Will the devastating accident be their wake-up call? Can they find their way back to what they once had, or have they lost their chance?
This book contains an HEA and is for readers over the age of 18
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What happens after the HEA? That is a question that many readers ask, after every book they read. These authors have taken a story that we saw the hints of in previous books of this series, and carried it past the HEA, to give us the “after the HEA” on these beloved characters.
Talon & Claree met as young teens, had an instant connection, that held them together. Despite objections from family members, they stayed true to each other, building their relationship into something pure and beautiful. Regardless of the difficulties they face, they built their lives together, as well as a family. But sometimes, love isn’t enough. Sometimes, we forget to look past those troubles, forget to be appreciative of what we have. Talon & Claree let life pull them apart, let day to day busyness get between them.
This book was absolutely beautiful. The pureness of their relationship, the beauty of their connection shone through all of the craziness that was their life. I loved following their story, watching them grow, as individuals and as a couple. This book was totally different from what we normally get in a romance. It didn’t focus on the initial meeting, the first blush of romance, the building of the relationship. Instead it focused on the difficulties of maintaining that relationship, the hardships of life. This is definitely a must read for anyone who loves the RGMC!
