In New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando’s latest novel in the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series, Rake—baddest of the bad boys—gets his own romance at last!

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 fa├žade, 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.

I have been a fan of the Wind Dragons series for a long time and have been eager to get playboy Rake's story, because he was always cheeky and fun! I wondered if there was a girl from his past and sure enough there was! Rake's story is a second chance at love, and they realise that misunderstandings kept them apart for the past seven years.

Rake has been one of my favourite characters in the series. He was a little more sexually active, and very loyal to his brother's and family. He didn't handle being back in Bailey's presence very well, and soon realised that he had no say in the matter. I could see that he still had feelings for Bailey, but didn't want to let her back into his heart again.

Bailey was convinced that she'd never see Adam (Rake) again until she ran into her old friend, and Rake's sister, Anna again. She wanted to rekindle her friendship with Anna, but wanted to leave her demons from her past right where they were. She had moved on with her life: had a good job, house, and a family she called her own.

These two had serious sexual chemistry, and no matter how hard they tried, it continued to sizzle. They tried so hard to avoid one another, but a series of events kept bringing them back together. They both were heartbroken after their break up and handled the last seven years differently. The more they got to know about each other again, the harder it was for them to stay apart. I loved the change in Rake, seeing his sweet side come out, and to see Bailey take a chance and allow Rake into her complicated life. They were hot between the sheets and Bailey let Rake take charge and his dominance was hot!

I devoured this book in only one day and thoroughly enjoyed Rake and Bailey's story. I liked seeing all the characters from the previous books too, and how they all gel together as a club and a family. There are other characters I want to see more of too, like Irish and Talon from the Wild Men MC ( need to get the novella's and get all caught up). I also loved the little cameo appearances of Reid and Ryan from Fernando's Maybe series! Chantal Fernando sure knows how to weave a great MC series, with the right amount of romance, sexual tension and suspense that leaves me wanting more!

Here are a couple of sweet moments with Rake. He can be sweet and tender. He wanted Bailey so badly!

He pushes my hair off my neck, and says, “You look beautiful today.”

“You’re a beautiful woman,” he continues, and I turn around and look him right in the eye.
I stop breathing as he reaches out to cup my cheek with his palm. The feel of his hand on me has me wanting to both jump in his arms and run away from him at the same time.
