In book eight of the Steel MC Montana Charter: Sarah ‘Topaz’ Cardell had been with the Steels in Montana from the start, moving up from the New Mexico Charter with other Hoez to be there for the men. Her place in the club, allowed her to shelter her damaged heart. For nearly a decade, her past had stayed in the past until a man so similar to the one she’d lost, shows up in Turnabout Creek. Will she allow herself to find out who Onyx really is? And if she does will she be ready to meet the man he is?
Enforcer, Dallas ‘Onyx’ King took a chance leaving Los Angeles and moving with one of his best friends to Turnabout Creek, Montana. An amputee from an injury when he was on patrol with the LAPD, his choices were limited. He knew when he arrived he would be the only chip in the cookie and found himself pleasantly surprised to not be. The men, women, and children of the Steel MC welcomed him with open arms and no judgment even when it came to his limited mobility. That is, all but one.
When a private argument between Topaz and Onyx turns into a kidnap and torture by a group set on taking over the country, the past will be revealed and true emotions emerge. Can Topaz and Onyx put any hard feelings aside and save themselves from their abductors? And will the true desires bubbling under the surface change both their worlds?
Review by Twinsie Angie
I purchased this book.
One of my favorite things about this series is the fact it does not shy away or sugar coat intense topic. The story has hit on domestic violence and racism hard in these books. This book is the biggest hammer to the topic of all the books and I worry/fear more will happen with the current “bad guys” of the storyline.
*Clapping* Topaz gets a man!! FINALLY!!! I have loved her from the start of the series and so I have been waiting to read her story and find out who steals her heart and makes her an Ol’Lady. She is the “I’ll cut you bitch” momma hen to Roadkills “I will smother you to death” momma hen of the women in the club. Topaz has been in the MC life first when she was with Dell and Steel and now with Red and Roadkill. She knows her place and has earned respect from everyone for her loyalty to the club. But Topaz is just SAD and that hurts me.
Onyx is the best sidekick to Hollywood you could have. The two have a great bro-chemistry and it shows. Onyx knows being black is a huge issue for most MC’s but not for Red and his crew. They are interested in the character of the person. The color is of no concern.
Unfortunately that is not the issue with a lot of people, especially the ACT-UP idiots….cult…..assholes??? Let’s go with racists assholes. If you aren’t white, then you aren’t right is their slogan. This attitude affects many of the Steel family in Turnabout Creek from Lil’ Mama, Cream, Hack, and many of the babies who live in the ranch.
When the racists idiots kidnap Onyx and Topaz they have to deal with her immediate dislike of him. He thinks its because he is a big black man buuuuut that is far from the truth. Topaz has lost and lost a very dear chunk of her heart. Onyx makes her feel things she has learned to ignore and numbed herself too.
The story of them dealing with the kidnapping and confronting their feelings was sooooo amazing. But seeing Topaz find a new skill set and feeling finally “at home” in Montana was the cherry on top in the story BUUUUT can I just say, Mountain is next and this girl does like the quiet ones….Better hold me tight Baldy!!
