Book 2, True Brothers MC - A True Brothers MC Novel
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Every rebel needs a cause—and a woman to believe in. Discover why Heidi McLaughlin raves that “the sexy, alluring bad boys of the True Brothers MC will make your mouth water” in this smoldering novel from the author of Ruthless.
The black-leather-clad biker who just roared up on his Harley doesn’t resemble any single father Emily Clark has ever known. But as she watches “Reb” bonding with his son, Emily realizes there’s a lot more to this bad boy than his alpha-male attitude or his sinful good looks. And when Reb takes an interest in her, there’s no way she can resist his surprisingly tender touch. The one thing Emily won’t give up is her hard-won independence.
As president of the True Brothers MC, Reb owes a sacred debt of loyalty to the club, but his first priority is making sure that his son grows up right. Pursuing an unexpected affair with Emily is a close second. Then a violent stalker threatens her life, and this unconventional guardian angel really turns up the heat. Nobody messes with Reb, or anyone under his protection. Trouble is, how’s he supposed to defend Emily when she insists on going it alone? He’s willing to put his life on the line for her. Now, maybe, he needs to open his heart.

I was so excited when I got this book! Gillian Archer left an impression with the first book, Ruthless. I'm finding that I'm a huge fan of the True Brothers MC. Zag from Ruthless is a tough man to beat and he'll probably always be my favorite, but Rebel sure came close. He's the Prez, the top dog at True Brothers MC and that alone is hawt! The fact that he is described as huge and built more like a football player cinched it for me. Shallow, I know. I mentioned in my review of Ruthless that I hoped Gillian Archer would pair up one of Jessica's best friends with a True Brother for her next book and I got my wish.
Emily has a new neighbor. The woman is hateful but she can't help but fall for her 8 year son. The poor kid is left to his own devices more than he should be. Emily finds Tucker sitting on the complex steps, locked out of the apartment with no idea when his mom will come home one too many times. She knows she has to do something about it so she coaxes Tucker into telling her where his dad is and drives him over to the True Brothers MC clubhouse. If it wasn't for Tucker she would turn right back around and go home. Emily is determined to talk to his dad and hope that he steps up to the plate for his boy. Little did she know is that Tucker's dad is Rebel, the Prez to the MC club her best friends boyfriend belongs too.
This book was entertaining. You have little, ole Emily who's scared of her own shadow go up against big, bad Rebel to try and protect Tucker from his mothers negligence. Rebel takes one look at Emily and he knows she will belong to him. Throw in the crazy soon to be ex wife and a rival MC club making waves and you got a recipe for disaster!

I really enjoyed this one! Fantastic writing and story. Reb and Emily are great characters and I adored Tucker. Rhonda not so much. The only thing that kept this from being a 5 star read for me was the lightning speed the relationship between Reb and Emily formed. One minute she's berating him for being an uncaring father (and yeah talking to an MC Pres like that ... hmmm) the next she's at his house and bam! The pairing is intriguing though. Big bad biker pres and the sweet local librarian. I loved it. Then when he finds out Emily is being threatened by a stalker he vows to protect her with the full force of the MC behind him and a wild and crazy times begin.
This is definitely a book I recommend!
Great second book in the series!
This is the second book in the True Brother’s MC series and you don’t have to read the first book to enjoy this one. I love all MC romances from the gritty, raw, down and dirty, criminal 1% to the legal activity, rough, alpha biker romance. This book takes on the latter. If you want an MC read with a very sexy alpha biker that falls in love with a with a beautiful, feisty and independent school librarian, then this is the book for you.
Emily is still paying off her student loans after getting her master’s degree. She lives in a crappy apartment and drives a crappy car and at times works two jobs. She is a librarian at the middle school and works at the local bookstore to make ends meet. Emily had a rough start in life having parents that were low life’s and she ended up in the foster care system until she made friends with Jessica, who is currently engaged to Zag, the True Brothers MC Sargent at Arms. So she is no stranger to the MC brothers.
Reb is going through a nasty divorce with the woman who is the mother of his child, Tucker. A sweet boy that often gets left to fend for himself when he’s with his mother. He ends up waiting on the steps of the apartment building where Emily lives or goes to his friend’s apartment where they feed him and let him stay over until his mother shows up. Emily adores Tucker, he such an adorable, sweet little boy and she hates that his mother neglects him. She has no idea if he has a father or not until one evening she comes home from work to find Tucker waiting on the steps with a grocery bag of junk food. His mother has left him again. Emily tries to get him to go to his friend’s apartment, but he tells her he and his family are on vacation, so he has nowhere to go. Emily is furious so she asks him about his father and finally gets Tucker to agree for Emily to take him to his father. Emily is shocked when she realizes his father is a True Brothers MC member. She calls her friend Jessica to have her boyfriend come out of the clubhouse so together they can locate Tucker’s dad.
Emily is shocked that his father is the President of the MC and he is not happy that Emily has shown up with his son. Emily explains to Reb what has been going on and he has had no idea that his soon to be ex-wife has been neglecting his son and he loses his temper. Emily is attracted to Reb, their chemistry is off the charts, but his temper scares her. She was abused by her high school boyfriend and he has continued to stalk and terrorize her. She has seen Reb around when her friend Jessica had been in the hospital in book one, so she knows of him, but that’s it.
The chemistry between Emily and Reb is unreal! He pushes all her buttons! There are some funny moments, there are plot twists and turns as Emily continues to get harassed. Reb and the MC brothers are having issues with a rival club, so Reb’s plate is full with a crazy soon to be ex that’s fighting the divorce, trying to pursue an affair with Emily, trying to get sole custody of Tucker, and the rival MC issues. This book is fast paced and it really kept me interested.
This is a sexy tender love story between a bad boy alpha biker and a feisty librarian, with some crazy action packed scenes and suspense! I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.
