Mike Dufrane fled a traumatic youth, hard years haunted by an abusive biker father, poverty and degradation, by escaping into the military. There he found only more savage violence. Then a chance encounter with an animal rescue group showed him another way. On an Indian reservation in the southwest, he finds a place to make a difference. Rez Dogs Rescue Shelter will be his route to build a positive life. Then a handsome Native American rides up on a Harley and throws Mike’s plans for a loop.
Adam was not there when his kid brother needed guidance and a firm hand. Back from two tours with Special Forces, he starts a youth center on the Rez to try to atone for his error but he cannot give up his Harley or his image as one bad ass biker. When an outsider starts a shelter for abused and neglected dogs, Adam initially finds it ludicrous but then recognizes a purpose similar to his own. However, the stranger seems to fear or hate bikers and is reluctant to begin a friendship. When crime and danger threaten both their projects, they have to join forces to prevail and suppressed attraction bursts into flame.
This was an interesting story of two people from different backgrounds coming together as their different missions come together. Adam is trying to make up for being gone when his brother dies while Adam is just trying to do what is right with the mission he feels is best.
There is no real connection with the characters but it was a nice quick read. We see them work on their missions and admire each other from afar until danger comes. I liked that these two had such different backgrounds but such similarities in them too, I think it helped to bring them together more.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is cute and has the “awe” factor.
