Rake is known for being up for anything, in and out of the bedroom. He’s wild, he’s deadly, yet quick with a joke or a stolen kiss. Known as the player of the WDMC, he loves women, the more the merrier. However, behind his womanizing façade, Rake hides the pain of losing his first love, Bailey. He hasn’t loved anyone since, and doesn’t think he ever will.
Seven years after their split, Rake and Bailey run into each other at the MC’s favorite club. Old wounds resurface, secrets are spilled…and passionate feelings are awakened. But they’ve each done things to hurt the other, hurt them too badly to get over it—haven’t they? Only when Bailey’s connection to Rake puts her in danger from another Club member does he realize that there’s nothing he won’t do to protect her—and claim her as his once again.
The Wind Dragons series is one of my favorite MC series that I’ve ever read. I absolutely adore these tough men and the women who win their hearts. These men are tough as nails and skirt the edges of the law with ease. They don’t regret their actions and they will protect what and who they consider their with everything they have.
Rake is the club playboy. He does what he wants with who he wants and he never feels bad about it. He’s slept his way through a ton of women but he’s never let any of them into his life or his heart. Except for the one girl from his past who betrayed him. Yet now she’s back in his life and she’s hiding something he’s determined to unearth.
There were times I wanted to smack Rake upside his stupid head. He treats Bailey very badly when she walks back into his life, unknowing of her private pain and past. Sure, that gives him a “sort of” excuse to be a dick, I mean, he didn’t know and all that, but still…he’s a grade A asshole to her. The more time he spends with her, the more he starts to feel like his teenage self, addicted to just the sight of her.
Bailey has spent a long time getting over her past and learning to raise her child on her own, with the help of very few people she’s let in. The last thing she needs is resurfacing feelings from her teenage years. I really enjoyed her backbone and her ability to deal with Rake without losing herself in him completely.
