Nasty indeed. I really like this series and the addition of Smoke and Gidget’s story just makes the series better. Smoke knew Gidget was his since they were kids. He had his life all planned out- Become a member of the Club and make Gidget his Ol’ Lady. However, bitterness between his mother and father made his dad, a Officer of the Club give Smoke some really bad advise. Smoke broke Gidget’s heart and pushed her away so she could live her dreams and not be stuck in the MC life. Fast forward a few years and Gidget’s life didn’t plan out as she had planned despite Smokes sacrifice. Coming home was never her plan, but she really has no where else to turn. Now she is going to have to deal with Smoke being in her life along with all of the drama that goes along with the Club.

I love Smoke and Gidget as characters. I will say, though, that I didn’t start off liking Smoke. His character rubbed me the wrong way for a bit. I didn’t like his father, Round, either. But, as the book progressed, they grew on me and you can clearly see that they are not as nasty as they are portrayed. Gidget and Smoke are well written and fit together as the leads. The drama and action in the book is well detailed and easy to follow. I could picture the events very easily. And holy cow were Gidget and Smoke so hot in their sexy time scenes. Yowza! I enjoyed seeing Boz, Brew, Trixie, and Addy make a appearance in this book. Their characters provide good support and add to the overall story. I can’t wait to see what this series brings in the future.

We are just stepping into the yard when my phone rings. I pick up my phone and see Smoke’s name on the screen. My anger at Round’s confession comes back full force as I put it to my ear. 
“Hello,” I say, unable to hide my fury. 
“What the hell is going on, Gidget? What’s the matter? Are you and Parker okay?” he asks, his voice hard.
He throws the questions at me so quick, it almost makes my head spin. “Nothing’s wrong. Why do you ask?”
“Don’t fucking lie to me, Gidget. Hack just called and said Dad was walking you and Parker out of the clubhouse.”
My anger retreats when I realize he was worried about us. Richard never worried about us, never even asked how our day went. Smoke, on the other hand, is checking in from the road. As irritating as it is, it’s always sweet as hell. 
Pulling in a deep breath, I explain what we’re doing. He asks a million questions, making sure Parker and I have everything we need. Each thing he says has my heart warming toward him. I have to remind myself that he’s the one who broke it all those years ago. Still, watching my son play with Round, I realize he did me a favor. Maybe I’ll do him a favor and forgive him when he gets back, but not before we have a long talk. 
“Fine, don’t stay out there too long. I’ll give you ten minutes to get your ass back in bed. If not, I’ll be calling my dad to make sure you get there,” he’s warns, ending our conversation without even a goodbye. 
Before I even put it away, it’s ringing again. I see Smoke’s name again and bring it back to my ear. “Hello.”
“Tell Dad there’re some balls around back in the shed. He can pull them out for Parker.” With that, he hangs up, not bothering to say goodbye again. 
For some reason, my lips are tipping up as I slide my phone into my pocket.
