Katie Ashley, the New York Times bestselling author of Redemption Road and Vicious Cycle, returns to the dangerous and seductive world of the Hells Raiders motorcycle club…This is an Adult novel recommended for ages 18+ due to mature subject matter.
After her father was murdered in the line of duty, ATF agent Samantha Vargas is determined to take down the scumbags of the drug trade. When her partner takes on a case to infiltrate the Hells Raiders MC, Samantha agrees to go undercover as his old lady but is surprised to find herself drawn to the very man she is investigating.
Benjamin “Bishop” Malloy has worked hard to carve a place for himself both in and out of the MC world. Working days as a mechanic, he spends his nights rebuilding motorcycles with the hope of one day owning his own shop. After taking one of the club’s new hang-arounds under his wing, Bishop is conflicted over his growing attraction for the man’s girlfriend.
Even though she’s determined to bring down the Raiders, Samantha discovers their world isn’t as black-and-white as she thought. And as the stakes grow higher, she’s in danger of losing more than her heart.
As this is a book within a series, I have to say, you can read this as a standalone. I was not aware of this before but I was glad I was able to jump in and follow the story without any issues.
This is Sam and Bishop's story of finding each other, falling in love for each other and eventually realizing that what they have is that special. The bond they have is so special that is hard to find and that many of us do not find in real life. Sam is an agent with ATF who with her partner Gavin, I do have to point out he is gay and lovely – so no love triangle, goes undercover in the Raiders MC to get information on a gun running activities gang. Sam gets close to Bishop who is a member alongside his brothers, who are also officers of the MC. As Sam gets to know Bishop, she begins to realize he is not like many other men, he is special. From there things go crazy, as they are undercover and there is a big betrayal, but as you follow the story, you will fall in love with them individually as well as together. And don’t forget about Gavin!
Last Mile is full of actions, twists, romance and a simply a great story and it will have you on the edge of your seat. It also includes hot alpha males, laughs and romance. The main characters are amazing. Sam is such a badass and although she didn’t have a great childhood, she is able to see past this and is able to open her heart to Bishop. This is a great story to be read during this summer, so make sure to grab a copy!
