Slick Ride: A Second Chance Enemies To Lovers Steamy MC Romance (SAINTS & S.O.B.s – New Orleans Chapter Book 3) by Mary Potter
Hustling is in my DNA.
There isn’t a man or woman I can’t outwit, outsmart, or outplay.
They called me the King of New Orleans.
Until I got burned.
But I’m back to retake my throne.
And I’m ready to draw blood from the man who thinks he runs this city.
The sexy Irish bartender only complicates things.
My plan for revenge never included her.
Now her mysterious past could bring everything crumbling down around me.
Being born into a mobster’s web of crime was like a noose around my neck.
My mother and I escaped to New Orleans, where the sultry breeze brought with it a second chance.
I wasn’t looking for love with a cocky biker, just a place to mix up my famous cocktails and make a buck or two.
I wanted a better life. A clean life. One free from the very thing we ran from.
But Slick was something I couldn’t resist…
Now I’m in too deep.
And there may not be a way out of it alive.
Can Slick knock his enemy off his throne? And at what cost?
Or will he take the biggest gamble of all with Rain Smoke?

Daryl “Slick” use to run New Orleans, from cards games to anything illegal, he had his fingers in it.
Life was good and woman were easy.
Then he was thrown out, chased away from his kingdom.
Running away was never in Slick’s vocabulary, but with a price on your head what can you do?
But now he’s back, and the man who took it from him is in his sights. Slick will once again become “king of New Orleans”……
Rain is use to fighting for what she wants. Coming from Ireland with her mother, Rain wanted to become the best bartender New Orleans, and a chance encounter gives her the chance to reach her dream.
The bar is the hottest place to be, Rain and her buddy have a routine that guarantees the tips keep rolling in.
Slick and Rain meet up when he helps chase away a few over friendly guys who wanted to party with Rain.
She’s not too impressed with her knight, she’s capable of looking after herself, but he’s hot and persistent, so a date is agreed upon.
I really didn’t want to like Slick, his behaviour with his ex Serafin (heroine from Stormy Ride) and his best mate Storm (hero from Stormy Ride) has me wanting to slap him silly.
But Rain is good for him, he sees a future, he sees something that could come to mean a great deal in her.
But will he let go of his revenge?
The action is fast paced and easy to keep up with. The chemistry between Slick and Rain is hot and steamy.
I liked the way he changed, he was still not a man to cross, but around Rain he’s a changed man.
Rain was a great character, a feisty young woman who isn’t afraid of hard work. She’s definitely wary of Slick, she’s been around the bar too long to get suckered into his web. But when they are alone it’s like being with another person altogether.
And when Rain gets caught up in the crossfire between her boss and Slick, will he lose the one woman he’s become emotionally involved in. Because if he doesn’t change soon, he’s going to be on his own!!
