Vengeance Road lives up to its name from beginning to end and was wonderfully written. ~ Amanda, Guilty Pleasures
Breezy Simmons was born into a ruthless motorcycle club—and now that she’s out, she’s never going to be that girl again. But when her past catches up with her, Breezy must go to Sea Haven to seek out the man who almost destroyed her. The man who chose his club over her and left her feeling used and alone.
As vice president of Torpedo Ink, Steele is ride or die for the brothers he lived through hell with. He never thought he’d find something as pure as his feelings for Breezy, or that keeping her safe would mean driving her away with cruel words that turned her love for him to ash.
Now, Steele won’t let her walk away twice. He’ll do whatever it takes to make Breezy his woman again—especially when he learns the real reason she came to him for help, and that the stakes are higher than he ever could have imagined…
Christine Feehan’s Vengeance Road takes it up a notch with a grittier and suspenseful romance for the second book in the series. Breezy Simmons was born into a MC and now that she’s out, she never wants to return to it. When her old MC kidnaps her son, she has no choice but to contact the father, Steele. Steele is the VP for the Torpedo Ink MC and is surprised when Breezy seeks him out. When he finds out the reason she needed to find him he has even more incentive to right the horrible wrong and make her his again.
The whole story was heading in one direction of recovering their son and finding their way back to one another. But there was a lot of fears to overcome and they weren’t the same people they were 3 years ago. Breezy has become and independent self-reliant woman since she’s been on her own. She fears for her son’s life and hers as well and never wants to be part of the biker culture again. Steele needs Torpedo Ink to feel whole and have the support of his fellow bikers since they grew up within those assassin training schools. He’s got to make her understand that he needs both Torpedo Ink and her in his life to feel whole again. That is the crux of the story and it was hard for either one to make concessions in order to be together.
The one thing that was holding them together was their love. You can feel that they still had an attraction for each and as much as they knew they had obstacles to fix, they couldn’t deny the physical chemistry they have together. Through compromise and perseverance, they find their son and brutally destroyed the kidnappers. The scenes of torture and murder were pretty gruesome but necessary to understand these men and women there were made to be. Vengeance Road lives up to its name from beginning to end and was wonderfully written.
Christine Feehan has created a vast group of broken individuals who are trying hard to fit into normal society and their backstories have been heartbreaking to read. I love how she can take a complex individual and show such diversity in one individual. Steele may have a monster inside of him but he also has a softer side and be a caring individual to Breezy, his son Zane and the men and women of Torpedo Ink. Steele is a complicated individual and his past still impacts a great deal on his present behavior. Confronting his past and PTSD was a huge step in making their relationship work and how the author brought it all out was nicely done. Breezy herself had to learn to trust Steele will protect her and do what is right for them. Breezy’s adamant refusal to go back to the lifestyle might have been repetitive in the beginning but the story picked up and resolved with a happy ending. Torpedo Ink has become one of my favorite series to read and I look forward to reading future stories.
