Book Length (Est.): 312Pages
Boomer Steele is big. He’s bad. He’s the Retribution MC pres. He’s been dealt the worst hand imaginable and bears the scars inside and out. Not that anyone knows it. He’s watched his younger brother and sister hook up and hitch up with the loves of their lives, and now he’s the last Steele standing alone. Maybe he should keep it that way.
Then one feisty honey makes him feel, gets in his grill, pisses him off.
She goes by the name of Rayce. And that’s exactly what she does on her motocross bike when she’s not busy getting her hands dirty with her fellow grease monkeys as the only female mechanic at Stone’s Garage. She’s into fixing bikes, racing hers, and making Boomer’s life a living hell just for the fun of it. Oh, and she hates being treated like a girl.
Sparks flying? That’s an understatement where these two are concerned. Yet when Rayce needs a place to live, and Boomer offers her a room in his house, their unquenchable attraction wins out over antagonism. Sometimes. Rayce’s crappy upbringing makes her think love is for stupid fools asking for heartbreak. She’s not willing to go there for any man. Not even Boomer Steele.
The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
*I received an ARC of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Rayce is tough, but only on the outside, and only because she has no other choice. She races motorcross, she’s a mechanic, and she has no problem just being one of the guys. But when she’s at home she’s a completely different person…broken and afraid.
“You’re so damn small, princess.”
“Only because you’re a fucking giant.”
Boomer had his eyes on Rayce for quite a while and for everyone who has read the series we’ve all been waiting for the moment they get together. He’s wanted her like no one ever before, he’d even gone on a celibate streak the moment he saw her because he didn’t want anyone but her. Problem is she’s hot and cold and he doesn’t know what to make of it.
“I needed the opposite of Viagra.”
Once Boomer discovers where Rayce is actually from his protective streak multiplies and all he wants is to take care of her, but she’s strong-willed and won’t accept being anyone’s charity case. Not even if her heart truly wants to accept.
In true Rie Warren fashion there’s sex, violence, and a family who always have each other’s backs. Love Retribution! Chrome: With a Heart Forged in Steele is another great book in a the Carolina Bad Boys series. It combines characters from both the Carolina Bad Boys and Bad Boys of Retribution MC, all of which are awesome books and should be added to all MC lovers bookshelves.
My Favorite Moments: I loved all of Rayce’s little mumbles to herself about Boomer.
“Big muscles. Good with babies. Knows how to dance. And can cook. Quadruple hate.”
