While Hunter and Nicole’s relationship blossoms, Jeremy tries to move on. However, he can’t let her go. It always comes back to her.
After the death of the rival MC’s President, Ryder, has the Devil’s MC in a uproar as Ryder’s surviving brother, Jax has come to seek revenge.
With revenge, Jax brings unknown secrets that pertain to Nicole, which may risk everything, her safety, her MC family, and most importantly, Jeremy.
A few weeks ago I read Burning Desire, the first book in Heather Leigh’s new Condemned Angels MC series. I enjoyed the story of Chase and Roxy and the star-crossed lover appeal of the first book in this series, so I was anxious to both see the end of the cliffhanger and learn more about Roxy’s brother Chase in Ride Hard, book 2!
The book starts where Burning Desire left off, and we get to see the resolution to Chase and Roxy’s story. Unfortunately? Their involvement ends there and they are barely a mention the rest of the book – this was really disappointing to me. (We didn’t even get to see Chase and Jeremy’s relationship, nor did we see Nicole run to her best friend, Roxy, for advice. Another disappointing aspect of this story for me.
The chemistry between Jeremy and Nicole is intense. But Jeremy has his head so far in the sand that she spends most of the book finding “comfort” in Hunter – another member of the MC. Jeremy was such a jerk at times I found myself on “Team Hunter” for much of the book – until the big twist about 70%.
All in all? I enjoyed the second book in the Condemned Angels series and am looking forward to the third! (Sure, there were flaws, but overall Heather Leigh does a great job at writing a fast paced, steamy, action packed romance novel!
