He’s only a friend. 
Those words had haunted him from the moment Jessie James had heard them muttered from the one girl, above all others, that he thought had his back. 
Sixteen years later, he still feels those words like a brand on his soul. 
Lucky for him he has a son to take care of, a full-time job that demands every single second of the day, and not a single moment to spare for the likes of a woman that won’t stand up for him when he needs her the most. 
He’s only a friend. 
The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them or better yet, explain, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him. 
She tries to find her way out of the pit of despair, but not one single person, no matter how much she tries, can fill the void that he left in his wake. Time heals all wounds. Or at least that is how the saying goes. It’s a crock of crap, though.
Sixteen years pass when Jessie and Ellen see each other again without the influence of the town and bad memories surrounding them, and it’s as if not a single day has passed. 
Ellen knows the instant that her eyes see her old love that she’s still just as much in love with him today as she was all those years ago. The problem is that Jesse wants nothing to do with her. Or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself.

This Series is emotional. Bring tissues. Most people think of M C clubs as homes to degenerates on big bikes. Real fans know the family is a tight group who is always there for their members. In this case JJ, Jessie is the single father of a 17-year-old son. While tattooed and a mouth not meant for the typical church, he has done a great job. In doing so, he'd walked away from the one woman he loved to give her a chance at a better life. Not the mother of his son. Now, a prospecting member of the club he finds her again in the arms of one of his brothers. 

You will see the life of the man and his almost man son has been hard but they are a team and Ellen has never gotten over him. Seeing him again she knows she can't continue with Sean. However, she still has to hang out at the club or involve her brother who is also a member and has included her as his family making her part of the club.

The story of their reunion isn't easy, but then nothing worthwhile is. Most M C stories involve violence whether warranted by the member or not. In this case, you will find out this story involves emotional violence, not that the person creating the problem won't drive you to seriously consider violence. These are good people you want to see happy. You want them to exceed. The members are old friends of the series, the steam is hot, and the questions about one member set up the next book—hopefully. A book that will make you stop and ponder the goodness of people is not in their look or their words but their actions and day to day effort.

MC fan or not, unless you are opposed to hot, frequent sex, dirty mouths, hot guys, I recommend this one for sure. Just prepare to become addicted to the genre like I did.
