I’ve read several other of Winter’s MC books, so I was looking forward to seeing how she handled the RBMC. I mised her first book, so I’m going to have to go back and read it, especially after reading Six-Gun. The RBMC books go from really dark to light-ish. This one is more toward the light-ish side of the line. I mean, there’s still darkness going on, it is a MC book after all, but not as much as some others. So, let’s talk about this one, shall we? Now, I will say that there are some things that they talk about in this book that happened in the first book, so I am missing bits of the story, but not enough that it ruined my enjoyment of this one.
We start with Memphis. She has been staying with the Sacramento chapter of the RBMC because they rescued her from a terrible situation. Now she’s working as a bartender at a bar that the club owns. She goes from the clubhouse to the bar and back, and doesn’t do much else other than that, for lots of reasons. Six-Gun, one of the members, takes her back and forth to the club, and not only that, he stays there the whole time, staring at her. All Memphis can do is to ignore him and just pretend he doesn’t exist. It doesn’t always work, but she still tries.
Six-Gun (who Memphis eventually calls Six, so that’s what I’m going to call him from now on) is attracted to her, but it’s not just because of how pretty she is, because she is, but it’s also because of who she is. Before she was rescued, bad things happened, and after she got rescued, she stayed in her room for quite a while, and would cry and have nightmares. Six would sit outside her door all night, every night, in case she wanted to talk and in case she needed someone. Now he can’t stay away from her, but he’s willing to wait for her, no matter what.
I really like Six. He really pays attention to Memphis and what she wants, likes, and dislikes. He also is more than willing to wait to go at Memphis’ pace. I really like that he gives her that safe place and that space. It can’t necessarily be easy for him, because I think that he’s going to be so much more a man of action than someone who wants to sit back and just wait. Of course, that might actually be doing something, since he makes sure that Memphis knows that she’s in charge. Either way, I think that he was really good.
I also like Memphis. I think that she was really strong, and I like her discussion with her boss about finding herself again, and how her boss went through some shit. Finding yourself again after bad things have happened isn’t necessarily easy, and you may never again find the person you were before, but you can find bits of that person and bring them back.
Anyway, I could almost call this book comfortable and cozy, just because of the way that Memphis and Six interact, but of course, it isn’t really, I mean, MC book, right? But it is good, and I enjoyed it a lot. I enjoyed it enough that I will continue to read her RBMC books.
OK, that’s all for this one today, and nothing under the picture today. Go check out the book, as well as all of Winter’s other books. If you like hilarious women, go check out Alice in Winter’s Fallen Lords books. Trust me, she’s so much fun.
