Publisher's Summary

A few years ago, when his sister went missing, Haggard Crow turned into something he never wanted to be. A killer.

Even after his sister is rescued a year after she was kidnapped and sold, Haggard "Thief" Crow doesn’t have any plans on changing. He sort of likes the zero-f--ks-given guy that he is now.

Bonus points, he saves women and children from extreme situations, along with his club and real life brothers by his side.

After a horrible marriage, Haggard has zero plans of ever finding a woman again. One-night stands not counting, he adores his life as a single man. There are no expectations. No "where are yous" and "are you coming homes".

The life he chooses to live is a simple one. Until he makes a huge mistake, and he steps over that line between "daughter’s best friend" and "a woman he desperately wants".

Before long, he can’t stop thinking about her. Can’t stop wanting her. Can’t stop feeling things for her that a man 20 years her senior should never feel for a girl he watched grow up.

After one lapse in judgment, he decides she needs to go. But the funny thing is, he never expected Sophia Madden to fight back. And dirty at that.

Tear Jerker have your tissues ready !!

Definitely listen/Read Coup de Grace in Code 11 Swat Series to get a tiny glimpse as to how the Madden family came about. I can tell you that I finished this listen 2 hours ago and I am still tearing up with the events in this book. LLV always gets me with these feelings. It’s worth a listen/read but be prepared to ugly cry!! There’s a twist that I wasn’t prepared for. Check it out if you love your bad boy biker and age gap love story.

WORTH WAITING FOR!

Liked everything about the story! Even the heartbreaking parts.

I had forgotten about Madden and his babies from "Coup De Grace". It was good, and bittersweet to read about them.

The story is as sweet as it is heartbreaking.

Always happy to see bad guys pay for their misdeeds!

I love it that we get our wonderful epilogues, with the Happily Ever Afters, including a few years into the future, and this one was no exception.

The narrators were great!

Recommended audiobook.

Great story…one thing I have an issue with *spoilers ahead*

I really do love this story. BUT

**spoilers**

Who gets no broken bones when they are run over a car?! And twice?! Sophia is run over by a car and doesn’t sustain anything more serious than bruises?? I knew a kid who got his foot run over by one tire and it broke. Sophia was run over by the front and read passenger side tire and nothing was broken?! That’s so unrealistic it made it silly

*spoilers end*

The rest of the story is great, but that silliness made the story 4 stars instead of bad. Cause it is so ridiculous. The listeners and readers aren’t stupid. Stop writing like they(we) are!!

OMG so amazing!

I absolutely loved this book!!! One of the very best. Maybe I love an age gap romance, or Dad's best friend!! Whatever the reason, it was one of my very favorites truly. There were all the feels in this book! I went from happy, to sad, to scared, to really sad, the happy again. Again. so amazing!!! Ty LLV! And great job narrating!!

Intriguing

Very intriguing. I had a difficult time with this one. It did not resonate with me like most of her other stories. It was very good. Well developed characters. So it is probably me more than the story. I laughed and oh boy, I cried. So there is trauma, drama, lots of May -December romance goodness and a great surprise at the end. Recommend you enjoy. Be sure to try the audible with excellent narrators. It brings the story to life. No cheating, no cliffhanger, HEA. Enjoy.

I want my own Haggard- send me one.

I liked this story. From the previews I thought it would be much darker. It’s not. Yes he is an “outlaw biker”
But there’s not much on that in this story. Also, he’s the family oriented growly papa bear type of biker. He apparently hunts down human traffickers.
Heroine is his good friends daughter. He feels some guilt over “going there” but from the way the story is told, it’s rather inevitable.
There were some unexpected plot twists with heroines dad, didn’t see that coming. Also with her brother, didn’t see it coming and also not very plausible which is why it’s quickly explained and brushed off.
There is a great deal of sexual tension between these two. The zzzex scenes were really steamy- out of this world very well done. This story is really about these two compelling people, how they manage to become a couple and finding out more about their family. I particularly like Haggards family, both blood and biker. Looking forward for more, much more from Haggards families.
I enjoyed the female narrator, however I did struggle with her believability with male voices - sometimes it comes across the way I make fun of things my brother says when I’m repeating his words- other times she manages to pull off a decent male voice. The male narrator absolutely nailed the intimate scenes i applaud the decision to have him read them. I would put those on replay his voice is so yummy.

OUTSTANDING

A fantastic way to start a new series. This story will take you on a journey that make you laugh, tear up, sit on the edge of your seat wondering what will com next. I am an absolute sucker for an older man/younger woman story. This book check all the right boxes for me. This is an exceptional journey to go on with Haggard and Sophie. I enjoyed every single second of this outstanding book. Lani Lynn Vale never ceases to amaze me.
Narration is perfection!

A good story

I really loved this story it was great, but unfortunately both narrators certainly did not in my opinion do this story justice. In fact twice I nearly gave up on the story to buy the book because narration was bad
