Publisher's Summary

It's 1994, and the unexpected events of summer promise to be as hot as the heat itself in Chatham, New Mexico, for identical twin brothers Ransom and Harley Lawson. One is being groomed to lead by birthright in the Immortals MC while the other will challenge that generations-old rule for the greater good and survival of the club and their brotherhood.

Inseparable since birth, the brothers have never let anything or anyone come between them until a returning ex-con club member and the arrival of a beautiful stranger cause their worlds to shift and their priorities right along with them.

Fed up with her grandfather's autocratic behavior, 18-year-old Willamina "Billy" Stanton rebels and flees from Santa Barbara. She heads to Chatham in the hopes of finally meeting her estranged father when she stumbles into Immortals territory and into the arms of a lethal, green-eyed biker.  

For Ransom, she is everything his 22-year-old heart will ever desire, even more than the title of "Prez". However, his loyalty to Harley and the club come first - a fact that he's continuously reminded of as his twin embarks on a dangerous path....

Contains mature themes.

Love this series

I've read all of these a thrilling ride. Hopefully we will not need to wait a year or more for 2 and 3.
Also a note to Audible this author is D A Young all of the related books you have are not her please correct can be confusing also quite annoying if customers are looking for books with this particular author.

Good Read

I enjoyed this read from start to finish. The narration was good except when Spanish is spoken and the story is good. I will continue the series on Kindle.
Billie is a strong and confident young woman who's mother raised her to be that way. Billie did what was hard when she didn't get what she needed from her lover, not every woman is strong enough to do that while continuing grieving for the loss of her Moma. Her Moma left her in a state where she didn't need anyone.
Ransome is a strong young man who knew his mind at a young age and caught on to what he needed to be or how he needed to be to survive his upbringing. He sees that something is very wrong with his brother but to me he does not try as well as he should to help. Their Moma who is Latina is tired of the dad's ways, he has stepped out on her and she is sick and tired of being sick and tired. She holds resentment towards the dad but I think she needs to be kicking herself cause she stood by and watched it happen.
The second book should be really good cause it ramped up at the end of this one and there are multiple parts to this story.

Surprised!

Billie is a take charge of her life once she loses her mother. Ransom is your die for the club that he was raised in. The two are oil and water yet can't be without the other. On to book two to see what Harley is up to and how it will affect Billie and Ransom.

confusing narration

First.let me say I love reading g multicultural stories what I didn't like about this on is Mari's narration of the biker scenes that Billy wasn't in. Mari shows no emotion and her male voice is horrible. It made this story hard to listen to and was a big turn off for future books if they're going to be narrated in this manner.

Wow!

This is my first book by this author and she has me hooked. The end left my mouth wide open. I'm literally afraid of what could happen, but want to know at the same time. It's like watching a movie with your hands over your eyes. You don't want to see, afraid of what's going to happen, but peek because you have to know. And THAT makes for a fantastic book. Starting part 2 now!

Great book 👏

Great book with an excellent storyline. The story's not predictable, very well thought out but not overly detailed
