Caine is scared both inside and out, born to a crack addict mother and a father who liked the bottle! Put in care homes and then homeless, he’s not had it easy, trust needs to be earned and not easily given.
In the MC subculture the Sergeant-at-Arms is responsible for ensuring that the Bylaws and standing rules of a club are not violated, and that orders of the chapter officers are executed in an expeditious manner. … The Sergeant at Arms is the head of security of the club and also the personal bodyguard to the President.
Emma loves Christmas, it’s a season she loved with her grandmother, she can’t wait to wrap presents and eat lots over the Christmas period. But first she has to deal with a mugger! Luckily she’s saved, but by a biker! She’s expecting to be mugged from this guy as well, but instead makes her feel safe.
Oh this was such a good read (wish it had been longer) Caine not thinking he’s good enough for anyone, especially not a kindergarten teacher.
“You’re a kindergarten teacher,” he said, his eyes tracking her every movement. Hands full, she moved toward the table and then laid out the place settings. “And?” she said with a little laugh. “What does that mean?” His gaze narrowed. “Kindergarten teachers are like…paragons of innocence and sweetness.” Emma waited for the punch line, humor bubbling up inside her. And then she started chuckling. “Oh, man, would my friend Catalin get a kick out of that.” She shook her head, laughter still bubbling up inside her. “When she gets worked up over something, she swears like a sailor. That’s just a reputation because our job entails being cheerful and patient, and having a willingness to not take yourself too seriously, and playing with glitter and fuzzy pom-poms alongside teaching letters and numbers and social skills.“excerpt from Ride Dirty
Emma is such a good person, she’s sees the best in everyone. Loves her job, in fact loves life, the interaction with her dog was so cute.
And Caine’s reaction to the dog was hilarious. I don’t think he knew what to do with it.
Caine has been in all the books, but not too prevalent, he’s mostly been in the background, so it was nice to drag him into the spotlight.
He doesn’t expect kindness from anyone, he expects just to be used. He’s had that all his life, and the I’ve person he tried to look after does in a fire at a young age, so from them on, it’s no connections, his biker buddies are family, but still not a proper connection.
He needed Emma to show him not everyone is out to hurt him or use him.
Hoping there are a few more books to this series.
