It’s been a while since I got lost in a good MC (motorcycle club) read and HWY 550 proved itself to be a good choice.
A rash of violent robberies leads FBI agent Luna Roosberg to team up with MC president Ouray. It’s her case, and a gun used in one of the robberies belongs to Ouray. They’re not unacquainted with each other and their contempt… and attraction to each other is hard to hide.
These two flawed characters blend like oil and vinegar at first, but soon find out they’re more alike than they care to admit.
Ouray was a stray who grew up in the club. As its president, he’s moved the club away from illegal activities and into legitimate businesses, which is why finding out his gun was involved in one of the robberies isn’t sitting too well with him.
After suffering a violent attack in college, the diminutive Luna is closed off and tightly wound. Her existence is restless and her job the only thing which keeps her grounded.
Ouray and Luna are a great pairing, and it’s been a few books since I felt true chemistry between a couple and not something forced and formulaic.
I like my heroes and heroines smart, confident, and human, meaning, no one is right or in control all the time and you have to know when to let go.
These two got it right. They have passion not just for each other, but for their jobs and those closest to them.
I bumped heads with Luna a few times—I felt she was trying too hard. But I believe she did too, and a shifting mindset worked in her favor and won me over.
Good character development and plot keep the story moving forward without info dumps or loose ends. Suspense, multiple suspects and plot twists you don’t see coming make this a page-turner, but Sorrynotsorry about Rowtag, Britney deserved worse, welcome Jack, and everyone needs a Momma in their lives.
Familiar faces from the On Call series blend into HWY 550 and lend a few laughs and stellar support.
I definitely recommend this read.
Special Agent Luna Roosberg lives and breathes her job. Who needs a personal life when work is so rewarding?
When a new case sends her to investigate a local motorcycle club, covering as the president’s new flavor of the week, the lines between professional and personal quickly start to blur.
Although the Arrow’s Edge MC stays mostly on the right side of the law since Ouray took the gavel, the appearance of the feds at their gate can still rattle his cage.
When a string of robberies points squarely in Ouray’s direction, he’s forced to cooperate and put the blonde, prim and proper half-pint on the back of his bike.
With pressure mounting both in—and outside—the club, Ouray no longer knows who he can trust, except the woman who is shaking up his life—and stirring his blood.
