Years on the run taught me fate always catches up. And that’s what happened when Sage Jackson found me.

My destiny. My keeper. My father’s enforcer.

Sage owes the club a favor, and now that I’m back, it’s his time to pay up. My freedom for his. A task he’s happy to accept when I’m the reason his father is dead.

Sage swears to protect me.
To guard me.
To keep his hands off me.

He thinks showing me his dark side will make breaking the rules easier to resist.

But the truth is, he isn’t the only one with scars and secrets. And I prefer being at the mercy of a beast over the boredom of dating a prince.


Sage is a Twisted King, and I’m the daughter of one. Destined or not, this is never going to be what I want.

Oh the way I binge read this series and dare I say, this one was my favorite so far. Sage and Lyla were everything. This series is what I would call grayish dark. It’s the perfect series for those that want to get into the dark romance genre, but don’t want all of the gory and dark details. The story itself touches some very dark topics, but keeps the disturbing parts off the pages, which worked perfectly.

If walls can hold ghosts, then so can bones. And every time I look into his eyes, I’m reminded that Sage is haunted. I get it. So am I.

Lyla never wanted to live the biker life. But when her father is the MC president and the boy you’re in love with is a prospect, there’s not much hope to escape it. Lyla and her twin sister get thrust into the MC life even if they want nothing to do with it. But the one good thing for Lyla is Sage. What starts as an unwilling friendship soon turns into something more. Only for life to tilt on its axis for Lyla and for everything to come crashing down around her forcing Lyla to run.

She was mine all those years ago, and she’s mine now.

When a clue for the answers she desperately seeks brings her back, she doesn’t expect to run into Sage or her father again. The last thing she expects is for them to lure her back into a life she wants nothing to do with. Sage is determined to protect her from the danger of her past and Lyla is still adamantly determined to avoid the MC life. But Sage is not the boy she knew eight years ago. He’s grown up and not into the MC man she thought.

I won’t go into any detail because trust me, you want to experience it for yourself. But I will tell you to prepare for an action packed ride with dark secrets, sizzling romance, and a man obsessed. If you love watching the bad boy fall and fall hard, you’ll love Sage. Lyla is a force to be reckoned with and Love the way she matches Sage’s hard core energy. The two of them together is absolutely incendiary.

She screams into my mouth, and I steal it with a kiss. I’m going to take every piece of her—body and soul.

I was so obsessed with this second chance romance that I binge read it in one sitting. It was deliciously spicy with just the right amount of grit and suspense. I can’t wait for the next installment!
