Series: Notorious Devils MC #1
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: March 24, 2016
Kentlee Johnson was taught by her parents that a girl needed to grow up and to find a good man who will take care of her, to be a doctor or lawyer’s wife. But that’s just not her personality! She is strong, independent and a take no crap kind of girl. She is determined to make it on her own and not need to depend on anyone. She was doing a great job of that until one-day Fury walked up to her with his cocky attitude and sweet talking lines. Will she allow herself to be “lured into the lion’s den?”
Pierce “Fury” Duhart is the president of the Notorious Devils MC. He has lived a life that is the complete opposite of Kentlee’s. He is rough, gruff, and dirty talking, but somewhere deep inside he has a softer side, his “own kind of sweet”. He is a protector; he will do what he has to do protect those he is loyal to. Will he be able to show that softer side to Kentlee, to prove to her that he can be the one to take care of her?
Rough and Rowdy was the first MC romance I’ve read. Let me tell you if they all are like R&R, I think I’ve found a new genre to add to my favorites. I’m usually a “hearts and flowers” kind of reader, but I loved the gruff exterior, and underlying sweetness of the characters in this book. There was action that kept me on the edge of my seat, passion that had me reaching for a glass of ice water and a story line that left me wanting more. There were so many feels in this book. I became frustrated along with Kentlee at the way Fury handled some situations, but resolved that he thought he was doing what was best. Silly man! I laughed, cried, became angry and also found myself smiling right along with Kentlee and Fury.
The characters in this story have so many levels and layers. I love that Kentlee was faced with some tough situations and she did not break. She did everything she needed to do to survive, it showed an extra depth to her character. She didn’t just bow down to Fury when he made a HUUGE mistake, but she also didn’t just write him off either. Fury had some making up to do, and he allowed his protective and sweet side to shine through when it would have been just as easy for him to walk away. The supporting characters of Brentlee, Kentlee’s sister, and Bates “Sniper” Lukin are just screaming for their stories to be told. We get a little taste of them in R&R. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for book 2 in the Notorious Devol’s MC series to come out to find out more about them.
I gave this story 5 Rowdy stars!
