Cadie lived in hell because of an abusive ex. She managed to escape, but is a shell of her former self. No matter how hard she tries, she can’t seem to get back to the woman she once was. Even if working at a tattoo shop filled with big scary men has been helping her see that sometimes they are the ones to have at her side. Especially a certain biker, covered in tattoos and muscles, who makes her insides tremble with something other than fear for the first time in years. Even after he’s gained her trust and inserted himself into her life, the ghosts of the past come back to haunt her.
Marrow knew the moment he saw the tiny sprite of a woman in Edge’s office that she was going to own him. The shadows in her eyes show him a past she barely survived. Patience and persistence pay off when he finally gets a chance to let her see the real him, not the scary man he appears to be.
Too bad the past doesn’t stay where it belongs. Now he’ll have to be every bit the frightening man Cadie originally thought he was just to protect her. He may have failed his sister, but he’ll die before he lets anything happen to Cadie. You don’t mess with what’s his, he’s a Rebel for a reason.
