Duke Weston rode out of Turnabout Creek on a wave of cheers and well wishes as a hometown hero. Nicknamed Hollywood when he returned from LA to help his wayward nephew from being pulled into the Road Killers and the drug culture they’ve cultivated. The LAPD SWAT member joined up with the Steel MC Montana Charter only to discover he couldn’t commute and be part of the club. With life-altering decisions needing to be made, can Hollywood find his way home and help take down the Road Killers? Or will he be drawn back to the big city where there are no demands on him once he clocks out?
Fiona “Free” Anderson was rescued by the Steel MC’s Prez and VP. What everyone thought would be a few days layover, then a relocation, turned into more than a year. Dancing at the Roadside Bar, Free’s stayed on the edges of the club. Some believe it’s because of her past connection with the Road Killers and that she’s holding back secrets. Only Free knows why she fears to make a connection and never truly invests in anything past the next moment. Has she overstayed her welcome with the club? Or has she finally found a place to call home?
With Hollywood’s nephew a year from graduation, uprooting his life in LA needs to be about more than family obligations. A woman, beautiful, but damaged, might be exactly the hook to bring him back permanently. Only her past keeps resurfacing, and Hollywood wonders if it’s because she never let it go, or that things in her past refuse to take no for an answer?
Time, trust, and loyalty to the Steel MC may be Free and Hollywood’s only answer to a lifetime together.

I purchased the eBook from amazon.
I really have not liked free in this series. She was brought to the steals after being beaten by her mam a nomad with the rival MC. She just seems shady to me and one to be involved with the other girls. The club does watch her because hello rival MC.
Free knows she’s not a part of the Steels and knows they want her to spill what she knows about the Road Killers. But she learned at an early age not to be loose lips Lisa. That can get you in trouble. Be seen and not heard was her way or as she put it “better to be invisible than be a visible problem”. Free never had it easy losing her mom at a young age and being tossed into the system. Leading to her being on the streets doing what she had to do to survive.
Duke/Hollywood was a town hero who left the first chance he got. He was LA SWAT but was brought back home to help his sister and nephew. He found the steels we’re trying to make his town better. Now with the steels, family and free catching his eye he may have a reason to return to the town that always had his back.
I have to say by the end I understood free more and I actually kind of liked her. Hollywood is amazing always knew what free needed when he needed to push and when he needed to back off. These two make a powerhouse team. By Hollywood being in town sounds like we may have a new member sometime soon with Hollywood’s buddy. Kind of intrigued with the appearance of Dallas. So ready for more of this series.
