First sentence(s):
My head is spinning, and my body feels like dead weight. I'm falling into everything, as if I were top-heavy, and can barely stand straight. I like my lips, and they tingle with an unusual sensation. I giggle and trip on my heels, falling right into a dresser.

Cherry’s life growing up was nothing short of a nightmare. Having an abusive father forced her to fend for herself from an early age. Bruised and emotionally broken, she finally escaped, running straight into the comfort that Lip's arms brought. In the beginning, everything seemed to fall into place perfectly. He made her forget the messed-up ways of her life. But secrets can’t stay neglected. They have a habit of revealing themselves regardless of the consequences. Terrified, Cherry can’t speak a word or she’ll lose it all.Lip is no stranger to the criminal life. Growing up among convicts, he wanted nothing more than to show his worth. He’ll do anything for the club without question, including serving six years in prison. But nobody could have predicted life’s plan. Rugged, tattooed, and wanting nothing more than to have Cherry, Lip is no longer the man whom Cherry remembers. After his release, he came out a beast with more secrets and lies than his cage could hold.Secrets.Lies.Pain.When a relationship is surrounded by mounting dark secrets, is it possible to survive and come out unscathed?

Zombie sighting:
I zombie-walk toward my room, but when I'm a few feet from my door, Lip grabs my hand, tugging me towards his.

My two-bits:

This was my first read in this series which went alright as a standalone. I did not feel like I was missing anything.

It is also my first motorcycle club romance. After watching the first season of the TV show, Sons of Anarchy, I wanted to read a bit from this genre.

There was a balanced blend of story and sex in this one. The romance felt more lusty than romance-y which was fine for this genre and setting.

Got a little bit of the club life culture. But the focus was on the secrets each character held and how they eventually had to come to terms with the reveals and aftermath.

About the author:
M.N. Forgy was raised in Missouri where she still lives with her family. She's a soccer mom by day and a saucy writer by night. M.N. Forgy started writing at a young age but never took it seriously until years later, as a stay-at-home mom, she opened her laptop and started writing again. As a role model for her children, she felt she couldn't live with the "what if" anymore and finally took a chance on her character's story. So, with her glass of wine in hand and a stray Barbie sharing her seat, she continues to create and please her fans.
