Brothers of Mayhem #1
Carla Swafford
Releasing on February 16, 2016
with passion and suspense, perfect for fans of Joanna Wylde and Julie Ann
Walker, the Brothers of Mayhem series revs up as a headstrong beauty faces off
against an outlaw motorcycle club—and falls for the bad boy she never saw

Ryder refuses to be intimidated by anyone, even the hell-raising, hard-drinking
Brothers of Mayhem. The daughter of their former president, she’s not above
smashing a few heads to keep her teenage brother safe. But when Cassidy’s big
mouth gets her in trouble, the only thing that saves her is some quick thinking
from the Brothers’ bartender. He’s commanding and strong, and as smooth as the
whiskey he pours: the ultimate temptation for a girl who swore she’d never be a
biker’s plaything. 
Thorn Savalas is no ordinary biker. He’s a cop, and he’s worked too hard
earning the Brothers’ trust to blow his cover over a female—even one who rocks
a pair of jeans like Cassidy. The only way to protect her is by claiming she’s
his old lady. Trouble is, Thorn can’t just pretend. He wants Cassidy, and every
scorching touch tells him she feels the same. But acting on their hottest
fantasies could leave them both exposed . . . even if nothing else has ever
felt so real.
Carla Swafford loves romance novels,
action/adventure movies, and men, and her books reflect that. She’s married to
her high school sweetheart and lives in Alabama.

This is an action packed MC love story that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time while reading this! When Cassidy Ryder walks into a dangerous biker bar brandishing a baseball bat and demanding some answers as to where her brother is, I knew this story wasn’t going to mess around. I love it when the book I’m reading throws me right into the deep end and leaves me to fend for myself and this one does not disappoint. Cassidy has been living within this biker lifestyle her entire life and is sick and tired of it all. Her father is the former leader of the Brothers of Mayhem and was sent to prison for murdering his wife several years ago. The current skull and prez of this group Stonewall doesn’t have an understanding bone in his body and is a monster that everyone knows better than to mess with, except for Cassidy of course. Because of who her father is, Cassidy is allowed certain allowances within the biker community. She’s currently pushing the limits of every single one of them at the moment however, with her relentless pursuit of her younger brother who has recently become involved with the group. Cassidy isn’t happy about this fact and isn’t afraid to make that known to everyone, even Stonewall. When her mouth places her life in danger, Thorn, a member of the group and the bartender at the bar the club hangs out at steps in and saves the day. Cassidy wants nothing to do with anyone from the club, even the sexy bartender who just saved her butt. Too bad her body has other ideas whenever it lights up on fire when he’s near. Thorn steps in time after time over the next couple of days to help Cassidy and is making it harder and harder for her to hate his guts for the patches he wears.

Cassidy knows there’s something different about Thorn that separates him from all of his other biker brothers and once she figures out exactly what it is, all bets are off and she wants him like she’s never wanted anyone before. Thorn is actually an undercover police officer that has integrated himself deep into the biker group in order to bring them all down and now he’s not only her protector, but he’s about to eliminate a group that she’s hated for as long as she can remember. I loved the off the charts chemistry between Thorn and Cassidy and I loved how protective he is of her from the moment they meet. He places his life on the line in order to keep her safe time and time again and it’s obvious he cares very much for her from the start. Even with all of Cassidy’s reservations about Thorn over who he chooses to associate with, she can’t help but want him from the second she lays eyes on him and feels the pull towards him as well. I loved that each turn this story took revealed yet another unexpected element about Thorn and the entire situation. I also loved how there were several unexpected surprises throughout this story that definitely kept me guessing the entire time. I couldn’t get enough of this story and read it all in one sitting since I literally could not put it down! I highly recommend reading this to anyone.
