SHE’S HOLDING ON TIGHT.
As a teen, Dawn ran from a life on the streets straight into the arms of Jimmy “Mad Dog” Sanchez, a biker who promised to be her knight in shining armor. But his love was just another cage. Years later, Dawn’s former life still has its hooks in her and she’ll do whatever it takes to break free. When Cade “Raider” Tyson, a member of a rival club, makes her an offer, Dawn finds herself in a different, hotter kind of trouble with one irresistible Sinner…
WILL HE GIVE HER THE RIDE OF HER LIFE?
Cade is an outlaw biker with allegiance to one thing and one thing only: The Sinner’s Tribe Motorcycle Club. But when it comes to the stunningly sexy, fiercely independent Dawn Delgado, Cade finds himself…hungrier for more. Trouble is on Dawn’s heels and he wants to be the answer to her prayers, whether she wants him to be or not. What can’t be denied is the red-hot attraction between them. However, as they fall deeper, the danger rises and Cade may have to sacrifice it all…?
You guys. YOU GUYS! I should've just read the damn series out of order because Beyond the Cut was everything I was hoping it would be. No offense to Jagger and Arianne from book 1, who were awesome in their own right, but DAYUM! Cade and Dawn just did it for me. In. All. The. Ways. *smirk* There's just something about a strong and fierce woman who's able to tame a beyond sexy manwhore biker by just being her bad ass self. Am I right?!
Okay so check it. Dawn is a survivor. Homegirl has been through some serious stuff and it has shaped her into a strong and independent woman. Cade is also a survivor. He's had to go through his fair share of trauma while growing up which turns him into a rebel who is also a loyal protector. When these two are in a room together these attributes feed off each other and create some pretty off the charts chemistry. Dawn is dealing with a major issue because of her ex. Cade, who can't resist the one woman who's left him before he could leave her, wants Dawn and steps up to help her. The rest of the story is pretty standard MC fare. Dawn and Cade try to fight their obvious attraction to each other, Dawn's ex causes some serious problems for her, Cade is torn between Dawn and his duty to the MC, shenanigans and hijinks ensue, shit blows up, people get beat up and/or offed and our couple lives happily ever after. Albeit with some matching bumps, cuts and bruises.
I also have to say that I love the supporting cast in these books. We get to see Jagger and Arianne again along with the other Sinner's Tribe MC crew. We also get to see more of Banks, the owner of the bar that Dawn and Arianne work at. He's slowly becoming one of my favorite characters in the books. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Banks book. *looks over at Sarah Castille* Anywhoozle, I think it's pretty clear that I'm a fan of the book and that I'm going to tell you that you should pick up a copy. *grins* So...yeah...go pick up a copy.
Exchange between Cade and Dawn:
"I'm not going to lose you because of him." Cade cupped her face between his palms. "Trust me, Dawn. I won't let anything happen to you. I love you. I didn't want to, but I do. I didn't think it could happen, but it did. There isn't anything I won't do for you and the girls. I'll give my life to keep you safe. Just don't run away. Give me a chance to make this right."
Banter between Dawn, Arianne and Banks:
"I figured he must have been at the curb, and not in the shadows, which means it wasn't Jimmy because I would have recognized him."
"A mini Colonel Mustard with a pipe in the kitchen."
"Did you just tell a joke, Banks?" Dawn shared an incredulous glance with Arianne. "I think Banks just told a joke."
"Write down the date and time. I think it only happens once every five years."
