Two wrongs don’t make a right.
But, try telling them that.
I wasn’t supposed to be at that house.
I should have never wandered away from the party.
And I definitely shouldn’t have pressed my ear to that door.
The words I heard play in my mind like a record on repeat.
Now, they want my silence.
The four guys who terrorize the streets of Redwood as a sport will stop at nothing to make sure that my lips are sealed.
What they don’t know is that I refuse to go down without a fight.
Marni Thorn thinks she’s holding all the cards.
She believes she’s harboring our secret.
Little does she know, it wasn’t ours to begin with.
We made a rule that she’s off limits.
But a body like that is meant to be touched.
Limits are pushed, and rules are broken.
But one thing is for certain, I have my little rebel right where I want her.
Striker by Rachel Leigh is a dark bully romance. It’s the first book from the Redwood Rebels series.
The notorious Redwood Rebels were Talon, Tommy, Lars, and Zed. They were friends for years and recently had made a pact in order to get revenge on the people who had hurt them. The first plan they were going to execute was Talons. In order to lure his enemy, they needed a bait and that was Marni Thorn. One unfortunate event gave them the opportunity to lure her into their fucked up world. His plan was plain and simple but along the way, it became more complicated than he could have ever expected. The girl got under his skin and in the end he had to choose between her and his revenge.
This is the first book that I read by Rachel Leigh and I am intrigued by the author. In this book, she created a very dark and twisted mystery that got me hooked from the beginning until the end. The story started with intensity and secrets. You don’t get a clear picture until you reach the end. There are a few hints here and there which you have to carefully add up. But there are times that a little
twist will through you off the loop. All the characters were amazing but I want to focus on the couple here: Marni was a very strong girl that had been through hell in her life. She wasn’t one to back down no matter how much she was afraid. Then we have Talon. He was scary and quite dangerous. He’s been through hell as well but on the contrary, to her, he was ready to play along with his demons. They created a fucked up and consuming relationship. They had great chemistry and tons of kinky sex.
I’ve read a lot of bully stories but this one takes the cake. Color me impressed. I will rate it with 5 stars and I’m going to anxiously waiting for the next one…
