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.

Review by Twinsie Angie
I purchased this book.
*Grumble and opens book* Free is a snatch who doesn’t deserve a book.
*Wipes tear and closes book* DAMN IT. I was so wrong about her and now I feel bad.
Yes friends to say I was not thrilled to read a book about Free is an understatement. I mean Hollywood is a good guy but can you really redeem such a horrible person? Welp, Michel and Wren made me a believer in redemption. I mean I even messaged Michel to say LAWD I feel bad for not liking her.
Free/Fiona is one heck of a complex character. She has never in her entire life been given any breaks or shown any kindness in her very short life. Sex was what she knew and was how she got anything from kindness to breaks from men. Being saved by the Steel MC was the only kindness she has been given without any string attached. Yes she was a lost soul who everyone snickered about behind her back and she KNEW what they said. I can’t imagine have no one in your corner or feeling like having no one in her corner. Little did she know she does have a group of people AKA Red, Roadkill, Hack, and Hollywood who do see her and want the best for her.
Hollywood has been in and out of the Steel and finally is all in. He has been fascinated by Free but finally starts to dig into her when he finds her after a very low point in her life. He finds himself drawn to her and all her baggage. He doesn’t care what the history is with her as long as she is willing to open her heart to a future with him.
This book we get A LOT of new information. We finally find out who the Road Killers President is. We also meet Dallas and a new prospect for the Steels names Mountain. We finally get to meet the newest baby Steel and I was so loving the birthing scenes with Red and the guys at Red’s house. These guys are alpha but also a mess when they cant help their women.
I have to stay I loved the scenes with the women and how they accepted Free into the fold of women even when she did see her acceptance in their eyes. But I cant wait to see more from Free and Hollywood. I cant wait to see what happens with them going forward just like the rest of the couples in the series.
