Shania meets Lincoln Knight when he walks into her cafe one day and although she sums him up as “..a hellhound of pure masculine goodness..” she also can see his brooding attitude. However, that doesn’t stop her from hooking up with him! 😉 She soon discovers her first instinct might be right and isn’t a big fan of his at all, even when he comes calling to offer to help her with her problem. He also isn’t exactly enamoured with Shania thinking she is..”..a sassy, overbearing, smart-mouthed…” you get the picture!
The story is told in two different time stages, necessary to explain the background to Shania and her problem. But it also helps to build a clearer character profile of Shania. She has an inner strength that helps her to stand up for herself but might get her into a bit of trouble too or that could be the touch of sass she owns as well. The underlying issue Shania has is slowly revealed as the past is and we find why it is she is so desperate to find Nicolai.
Lincoln is an opinionated, straight shooter who is also a hard working man dedicated to friends and his brothers. His past has shaped him too and this has caused him a lot of unrest. One thing we witness quite a bit is that he is not afraid to stand up for what he believes in and isn’t quick to judge others for their pasts.
The antagonism between the two lead characters is often funny, very sarcastic, but humorous none the less. They frustrate and annoy each other much to the reader’s entertainment. 😂 However underneath there is a pull between them that they try their hardest to deny and ignore. Once they do recognise the attraction it is still comical as they can’t understand it themselves.
I enjoyed this story because it wasn’t your usual enemies to lovers, there is a slightly different element to it and of course getting to meet up with old characters and meet new ones is fun too.

Another great biker read from one of my go-to in Bella Jewel. It was great to catch up with some old characters and meet some new ones in what I think will be a great new series. Bella always provides a great storyline and great characters that keep you entertained for the whole book. It an easy to read story that makes you want more.
