Rake's Redemption (Wind Dragons MC, #4)
By Chantel Fernando
Rake is known for being up for anything, in and out of the bedroom. He’s wild, he’s deadly, yet quick with a joke or a stolen kiss. Known as the player of the WDMC, he loves women, the more the merrier. However, behind his womanizing façade, Rake hides the pain of losing his first love, Bailey. He hasn’t loved anyone since, and doesn’t think he ever will.
Seven years after their split, Rake and Bailey run into each other at the MC’s favorite club. Old wounds resurface, secrets are spilled...and passionate feelings are awakened. But they’ve each done things to hurt the other, hurt them too badly to get over it—haven’t they? Only when Bailey’s connection to Rake puts her in danger from another Club member does he realize that there’s nothing he won’t do to protect her—and claim her as his once again.
I was worried about reading this because I haven't read the other books in the series, but you can read this without being lost. There are a few references but you aren't really left in the dark.
I liked this book for the most part there were a couple of parts I was not thrilled with.
Rake aka Adam, was a real ass at the beginning. Now I am not saying he didn't have his reasons, but he was over the top at times and almost ruined his character. He is a man whore and that is a great deal for Bailey to live with. Now I know he turned it all off when he got with her, but Bailey's comment on how he jumps over all the men who approached her, but she can't feel hurt when all his conquest talk to him. He is sexy and adventurous!
Bailey was ok. She seemed to have it all together, but then just gives everything up when with Rake. She says her kid is everything to her, but once she meets up with her old friends and Rake she is a party girl...even on a school night? Kinda not consistent. I am not saying a mom can't have fun.
Overall good story. The side characters were interesting. It as a good read.
