We are the cast-offs, the forgotten, the broken; we are dark, dangerous men haunted by our violent pasts.
The Guardian collects us, rehabilitates us, and gives us a new lease on life…if we follow a few, simple rules:
Once you’re in, there’s no going back; never take a life; loyalty to the brotherhood above all.
Seems simple, right? It is, until SHE stumbles into Sin.
My ARC Review:
Wow, this is an absolutely stunning read!! Once I’d started it I couldn’t put it down, I was completely engrossed in this one – the characters, the backgrounds, the world – brilliant from start to finish. This group of men, the Broken Arrows are crazy hot – ex-military with dark pasts, broken, brooding, scary, alpha and protective. This is Rev’s story.
Rev and his brothers work in Club Sin, where they have been taken in by their boss and bound by an unbreakable oath. Their run the security in the club, on the doors, patrolling around making sure that there is no trouble. Club Sin is very exclusive, frequented by the rich and famous, who pay mega bucks to be in there. Rev has never known anything but pain, abuse and hardship in his life, never had a family but for his brothers (not in blood), he is pure muscle, driven, hard, downright scary and lives for what he does, with no expectation of ever having anything akin to a normal life, until Myka.
Myka is on a journey to find herself, having been brought up in a wonderful and loving environment and coming from a big family with lots of siblings and nephews / nieces, very religious, no swearing, having saved herself for her husband, only to have him cheat on her, divorce her and throw her out of her home. She finds herself in Las Vegas having been befriended and taken on a bachelorette party to Club Sin. She is quite wasted and in a tight spot when Rev comes to her aid. This is the start of a very special friendship.
These two are complete polar opposites to each other, but are so suited and perfect. Rev knows Myka is not cut out for his world, he has done bad things and she is an angel, he tries to keep his distance and keep away from her, but Myka is determined to get to know him better.
I can’t tell you how much I adored this one, it’s gritty, emotional, dark and sinister, with plenty of action and drama, but the emotions coming off these two are just everything. Rev just does not know what he has done to deserve Myka in his life, he has never known emotions like these, he does not really know how to handle them or how to react. Myka is an absolute diamond, having been through hell with her ex she is determined to help Rev and show him what love and affection mean in his life. She is so strong in this, their connection is so very tangible, I just couldn’t get enough of them.
As for the heat, oh my word, what a scorcher!! The bedroom scenes are just wow, very intense, very steamy, very descriptive but also very real… left me a little breathless to say the least!!
This has to be one of my top reads of the year, and I can’t wait to meet the rest of the Broken Arrows, Kane is next. Don’t miss this one!
