On a dirt road in Nevada, a woman lay dying.
In book one of Montana Steel MC: Josh ‘Red’ Luke, Montana Steel MC Nomad, wants to go home. It doesn’t have anything to do with running from something as much as the need to find his place in the world. As a former Army medic, he used his GI bill to become a skilled surgeon, which fills his necessity to help. Together with the training from the military to never leave a man behind, and his soul feels almost whole.
The woman struggles to find her own name and the reason for being brutally beaten and left for dead. However, the memories come in hard, harsh bursts and the struggles to figure who she was, leaves her reeling and landing in the violent MC world where her natural instinct to run come out. One consecration the lack of memory fortified her—was to discover a thing she never gave a chance in the past—love.
When those who caused the hurt find out their target is alive, but under the fog of amnesia, they set out to finish the job. With her life in danger, the safest place is in Red’s arms. He can heal the woman’s body, but can Red convince her there’s room in her heart for him?
Review by Twinsie Angie
I purchased the audio book and ebook deal from Amazon.
SO I will admit, I haven’t read an MC book/series in along time. When the genre blew up, this girl devoured allllll the books but lately I have just passed when offered books. Well I have recently become obsessed with Michel’s library of books (Hello Two Ink Minimum is amazing!!) and so I was like OK Lets Do IT!! SO I grabbed the book and started listening…..FRIENDS!!! YES!!!! This book was everything I needed in a story. Yes its an MC but those elements weren’t overpowered in the story?? Does that make sense. Yes the club is there and club rules are visible but the characters took the story and my heart.
Josh/Red is a nomad and looking to go home because his father has passed away and his mom needed him at the family ranch. While he is riding, he sees something in the desert and rushes to see who it is. He can hear the wild animals getting closer, so he is worried. What he sees hits him in the gut. He is looking at a battered and essentially dead woman.
Nova/Roadkill thinks she is being lifted to heaven and is stunned when she opens her eyes in a room. She is surrounded by strangers and these blue eyes that she remembered from when she was dying. Nova has no idea what happened or even what her name is hence the club name of Roadkill.
The couple have a great natural building of chemistry. Red wants to help her while also protect her. The banter and seriousness of her attack forms a bond that neither is ready for and both try to push away.
Red is the first to realize he wants Nova forever but knows she is a mess and is probably not sure what the club life is like since she got some 2nd hand not particularly true information.
The couple go through a lot like moving to Montana to start a Steel MC Charter club, dealing with that past she had hidden away in her mind, solving some crimes against women, and falling in love.
Red is a no-nonsense guy. He won’t fight his feelings and is doing everything he can for Nova to realize her place is with him. Nova hasn’t ever had a real family or had people who generally cared for her, so this new “Family” is confusing and scary. But Nova is a bad ass chick who embraces the title Property.
I am so excited to read the story of the rest of the characters. I admit Baldy is the one I am more excited for because his character just screamed at me the most but knowing the next book is Cass, I am stoked!!
Narration was ok. Tanner is a good voice but I know Kat Maxwell narrates the rest of the series and she is amazing.
