Little Jack (Hell’s Handlers #6) by Lilly Atlas
Holly Lane has spent her life under the crushing thumbs of her cop father and controlling mother. Now, well into her twenties, she’s finally getting a fresh start and moving into her own apartment. Breaking away from her parents should be easy, but how can Holly begrudge their overprotective nature when their other daughter was murdered by an outlaw biker years ago?
With his brand-spankin’ new patch, Little Jack has a satisfying life in the Hell’s Handlers MC. Sure, the town’s new sheriff is messing with his club, but it’s nothing they can’t handle. Life only gets better when LJ’s dream woman walks out of his fantasies and into the vacant apartment next to his. Holly is sweet as sugar, curvy in ways that make LJ’s mouth water, and the woman can bake like no other. Personal demons keep LJ from chasing a long-term relationship with any woman, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have a little fun with his hot new neighbor.
Holly is pretty sure life is finally on the right track when she meets LJ on her first day in town. Incredibly tall, bearded, tattooed, and strong enough to unload her car without breaking a sweat, her new neighbor just might be perfect.
With outrageous chemistry and a genuine liking for each other, Holly and LJ seem destined for an explosive encounter until a tornado rolls through their budding relationship in the form of Holly’s father. As the new town sheriff, her father only has one item on his agenda: eliminate the Hell’s Handlers MC.
This book absolutely wrecked me! There were some parts I cried my eyes out, and some parts I laughed until I cried. There was a little bit of everything in this book, and it kept me on my toes. I absolutely love the Hell’s Handlers MC, and LJ and Holly just might be my new favorites!
Holly has an absolutely devastating past. Her childhood started out idyllic, but tragedy destroyed everything she held dear. Nothing has ever, or will ever, be the same. But she’s come to the realization that if she doesn’t do something to pull herself from the spiral she is in, she will never move past what she lost. And a new move just might prove to be what she needs. And who she needs.
LJ is everything that a MC member is supposed to be. He’s rough, tough, and secretive. His past is his own, and he deals with it in his own way. But Holly has a way of getting past his barriers, pushing him out of his comfort zone. Makes him want to be more.
I just couldn’t put down this book. LJ and Holly had so much against them, so many obstacles to overcome. It seemed that they would get past one hurdle and another would pop right up in their face. I really had my doubts that they’d be able to find their HEA. But I should have known that this author would never leave us (or them!) hanging, and they would always find their way to happiness!
