Knowing outlaw biker Callan Tilley is about to be murdered by another member of the Thunder Gypsies MC, Avery Watkins calls the police. But not all cops in Thunder Valley operate on the right side of the law and saving Callan could cost Avery her life.
Callan’s had a soft spot for the shy waitress from the first time he set eyes on her back in high school and is certain she was the one who called 911. Now she’s as good as dead once the gang traces the call back to the bar where Avery works.
His plan to save them both? Steal a secret stash of the club’s money, grab Avery and get the hell out of town. It might work, too, if the ATF, FBI, DEA and every other alphabet-soup agency in law enforcement were not on the hunt for a Gypsy willing to turn on the MC.
I fell in love with Maddox and Carson in college, but not once have they made a move on me. So, for eight years I settled for being best friends with two of the biggest players in the city, watching Maddox cycle through girlfriends every few months and Carson jump from one hook-up to the next.
Now our friendship is in jeopardy. An outlaw motorcycle club has started hanging around Carson’s bike shop, drawing him deep into their underworld of violence and crime. My pleas to Maddox to intervene as a cop are ignored. Both men are shutting me out, avoiding my calls and treating me like I never even existed in their lives.
After I show up at Carson’s shop and make a scene, life goes from bleak to terrifying. I find myself right in the middle of a police investigation, wearing a wire around hard core criminals while Carson feels me up in their club house as I play the role of his “old lady.”
But the night’s not over. Listening to the audio of all that heavy petting made Maddox jealous. Carson suggests that the only way to set our friendship right is to let Maddox have his own time on the couch with me — while Carson watches.
