BLURB

Everyone has dreams when they are young.
And mine came to an abrupt halt.

I changed as a man, as a person, my soul was damaged beyond repair.
So I turned into someone everyone would hate.
Because I hate everyone and everything.
I’m furious at the world.
I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
But then it does change.
And if there is one thing I am not good at, it’s adapting.

Hope, Bullseye’s daughter, jump starts my soul again.
hate it.
I love it.
need her.
But I can’t have her.
She’s my friend’s daughter, for one.
For two, she’s way too damn young for the likes of me.
Three? She’s got a kid.
And everyone knows how I feel about kids.

Vermin. Loud. Annoying.
Wonderful. Beautiful. Precious.
The voice inside my head is stupid.
It wants and wants but I won’t allow myself to have it.
I don’t deserve to have it.
There’s no hope for me.
Even if hope is staring me in the face.
I have to focus on me. My business. I’m on a case.
Women are dying.
And it’s all because of me.
I have to protect what I care about for once in my life.
I failed once and I refuse to do it again.

How can I love her, when hate is all I’ve ever known?

EXCERPT

“Can I talk to you for a second, Hope?” I ask her between tight teeth. There is no fucking way another man is taking my woman out on a date.
“Sure,” she chirps and begins to walk in front of me.
My eyes eat her up, watching her plump ass shake under that dress. Jesus, is she wearing anything under it? Her heels click against the hardwood floors and she opens her bedroom door to invite me in.
Bullseye gives me a curious glance but doesn’t think much of it when I keep the door open.
“Can this be quick?” Hope asks, staring at her phone. “Benji will be here any minute.”
I rub a hand over my mouth and take a deep breath. “What the hell are you doing? You can’t go out with… Benji.” I nearly spit his name as I say it. I don’t like the guy. I used to, but not anymore.
“Why not? He’s around my age. He is kind. He is interested in Faith—”
“—He asked about her?” I grind my teeth together at his audacity. “She is m—” I almost say ‘she’s my little girl’, but I catch myself. I’m so messed up in the head. I don’t know when I started thinking that. I’ve barely spent any time with her. “Why are you doing this to me?” I whisper, realizing how selfish I sound.
“Doing this to you? I’m not doing anything to you, Forrest. I told you I wasn’t going to wait around. You said you didn’t want me. You pushed me away.”
“He isn’t allowed to have you,” I growl, taking a step forward, readying myself to rip that dress off her and show her who she really belongs to.
Hope shoves me in the chest and points her finger at me. “You arrogant bastard. You don’t want me but no one else can have me? Fuck you, Forrest. You had your chance and guess what?”
“Hope! Benji is here!” Bullseye calls out from the kitchen.
Hope lowers her voice and shoves me again. “And you aren’t going to have another one. You’re going to watch me walk out of here looking fucking amazing and you’re going to wish you weren’t being a coward.” She thrusts her shoulders back and clutches her black billfold against her chest.
Hope goes to walk around and I wrap my hand around her to stop her, tugging her against me. I don’t give her time to think. I clutch the back of her neck with my hand and yank her to me, pressing my lips against hers.
My soul is righted as soon as our lips meet. All the pain disappears; all the burdens I’ve made myself carry melt away. I want to admit everything I am to her. No other man can have these lips of hers. No other man can make her gasp and clutch onto them like I can.
Maybe I am an arrogant man. I never considered myself one.
But I am when it comes to her.
No one else can have my slice of heaven, not when I’m finally accepting her light.
She rips her lips from mine and before I can blink, her palm meets my cheek. “How fucking dare you,” she hisses. “You kiss me before I meet with another man, why?”
I wrap my hand around her throat and shove her against the wall, pressing my body against hers. My cock is pressed against her thigh and her swollen lips part, her lipstick smeared and all fucked up from our kiss.
Good.
“So when you’re with him, all you can think about, all you can taste, is me.”
“You are out of your damn mind if you think I’m going to be thinking about you at all.”
“Hope!” Bullseye calls out again, and I take a step back.
“Yeah, better get away from me,” she sneers. “Or you’ll have to deal with Daddy.”
My heart plummets. I screwed up.
“You better hope you got everything you wanted out of that kiss because that’s the last time you ever touch me.” She cleans the outline of her lips with her thumb, fixing the evidence of our kiss. “God, you’re unbelievable,” she scoffs.

My Review

As with all the Ruthless Kings, bad things happened in Badge’s past, which made him who he is today. 
And it’s sad, and it now makes sense why he’s so grumpy and anti-kids!! 

Hope, is Bullseye’s daughter (long story) and she’s also a mother herself, she’s not had a great upbringing (Bullseye knew nothing about her until a few months ago) 
Living in the club isn’t ideal, but she loves the company and atmosphere. 
If she could get the hang of parenthood then life would be so much easier. 

Both are aware of one another, but Badge isn’t looking for long term and certainly no one with kids! 
Hope wants to be around family and to be loved just for her. 
So how can they move forward? 

Forrest “Badge” Walker was a cop until his President gave him an ultimatum!! (Another long story) 
His journey has been rough, his road to recovery/forgiveness/acceptance (whatever you want to call it) hasn’t been easy. 
I love the interaction between Badge and Maizey (adopted daughter of Reaper and Sarah)  she’s just such a character, and I don’t envy the person who wants to date her later on in life! (she’s well loved and protected in the club.)

An opportunity arises for Badge that he really can’t turn away from. And he sees it as a way of being a cop, but he’s not in the mood to tell Reaper! (Big mistake!) And he’ll also be under the thumb of local mafia boss Matteo (he has a book under his name) and being owned by both Matteo and Reaper will cause huge complications down the road! 

I love this series, mean bad bikers with hearts that are cold and empty, that is until the right woman crosses their path. 
Angst, sadness and lost souls, but there is also room for happiness, love and a family (which is what most of these ruthless kings want) 

Badge is adamant that he and  Hope won’t ever get together, but when she’s asked out on a date, Badge can’t help but act out! Kissing his friend’s daughter is going to get him killed!  
Suddenly Hope is all he can think about! And when she tells him she feels the same way, it makes his choices a whole lot more tougher! 

This is the Sixteenth book in the series. It’s already got a few spin offs! So by now you’d think it would be getting stale! You’d be wrong.
This series just keeps getting better. Each book might have roughly the same formula, but the author still manages to keep them fresh and interesting.
Badge has been a character throughout the series, and you have to wonder what his story was.

Well, wait no longer.

Dive in and enjoy the ups and downs of this biker gang and the women they’ve fallen for.
Read as Hope battles with her feelings of inadequacy of being a mother, how she wants Badge, but has to constantly fight his objections. Wait with baited breath, as we find out who the killer of prostitutes is, and it’s one I really wasn’t expecting. And then cheer as Badge finally gets his head out of his a$$ and accept the love Hope is offering.

I’d recommend you read them in order, it gives flow and continuity to the story. But saying that I haven’t! But I’m going to rectify that as soon as I get off my review.

Got to love a mean and grumpy biker. And you will 😉

AUTHOR BIO

K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
