Lately I’ve been on a MC romance kick and Angels in Leather is my 2nd fave for this category. I’m not exactly sure what it is about this genre, but it pulls me in some sort of way. NOW, I’m not a fan of all the MC books I read because well it’s just sex-sex-sex for days (not complaining), but I like it when an actual story follows it. With that being said, I was extremely pleased with Angels in Leather.
I finished this book in one sitting, as soon as the ARC showed up, I read it instantly. And the thing that sold me on this the 1st chapter excerpt we got, when I signed up for this tour. Just from reading that excerpt I was completely hooked. Who doesn’t like a good chase; there’s doubt, questions upon questions, desire (for sure), longing, and darkness (definitely something very dark).
Huge shout out to Meadow, she has seriously gone through so much in her life and most of it just stumbled upon her doorstep with only one thing to do. After her father is killed, his last words was to deliver ‘something’ to “someone”. And that set her running from someone that she cared about or at least thought she did? The man chasing her is not the man she use to know and it just eats away at her as she tries to figure it out.
As you all know, there’s only so much running you can do before you get caught. And boy is it like fire and ice between Meadow and Axel. The tension is there the ENTIRE book, especially when they play cat and mouse, it’s crazy.
In the beginning, Axel only wanted one thing and that’s all he cared about. He was pretty much a dick to Meadow through most of the book, and she wanted nothing then to broke those barriers down and figure out what happened to him. She knows it’s there, we all can see it, but the what is the big mystery. It’s pretty obvious that it’s something SO DARK, and to tell you the truth, I couldn’t believe it myself. Axel is broken and Meadow will do anything in her power to fix him.
Meadow is broken and strong as well, she kept taking hit after hit, and I was so surprised she stood that long. I’d be like forget it and move on. She threw EVERYTHING that she had to Axel and sometimes he’d just toss it right back. What more do you what man? It’s definitely not everyday you come across someone that will do that.
This book gets a 4.5, I was hoping the epilogue would give me more from the book, but it didn’t. BUT I am excited for the next story!
There’s fight in the both of them, especially Meadow and I absolutely love it. And I definitely think this an MC that all MC lovers will enjoy.
MY RATING :
“Fight me, don’t you stop,” Axel breathes into my ear. “I won’t hurt you, Cricket,” he murmurs, running his finger down the side of my face. “But I need you to fight.”
So, that’s what I do.
I start by squirming, trying to twist my body around. He presses his body against mine, and reaches up, tangling his fingers into the fence. He thrusts his hips, ramming both out bodies harder into the wire. I groan, and throw my head back, hitting him in the face. He snarls, and takes my hands, quickly uncuffing me before pulling them harshly behind my back and jerking my body back into his.
I hear the cuffs drop onto the ground.
I guess he’s letting me play this fairly.
“Stop that,” he rasps into my ear. “I’ll make it hurt if you do that again.”
“Maybe I want it to hurt,” I hiss, fisting my hands together and shoving them backwards into his stomach.
He stumbles off me with a grunt, and I spin around, ducking to the left and attempting to run. I don’t get two steps before Axel lashes out, taking my ankle and pulling me so hard I go down into the dirt. My face just misses being smashed into it by mere centimeters. Axel flattens his body over mine, and takes my head in his hands, jerking my head back by my hair and breathing down on me. “You’re being a bad girl,” he husks, running a finger down the side of my face.
“You’re not letting me play fair,” I whisper. “I was cuffed before, it wasn’t a fair chase.”
I feel his weight lift off me, and he jerks me up, pulling me into a standing position.
“Run, then. I’ll give you five seconds, and if I catch you again, Meadow, I’m going to f**k you,” he murmurs, then his eyes grow lusty. “Hard.” I turn without answering, and I run into the trees at the back of the lot. I hear Axel counting loudly, and my body shivers. I am sweating now, and my breathing is hard and ragged, but the chase is so worth that. I hear Axel take off after me, and I squeal with delight as I weave through the trees. It’s dark, but I can see enough because of the lights surrounding the club house.
“The minute I get hold of you,” Axel yells. “I’m goin’ to rip your panties down and put my d**k so deep inside you, you’re goin’ to scream.” I shiver, and swallow. I make my way to the fence line again, and I press myself against it for a second, letting my eyes scan the trees. “Then I’m goin’ to kiss you so hard your lips will bleed.”
I take off, using the fence line as a guide to get back to the other end of the lot. I can hear Axel to my left, and I know he’s gaining on me, but if I run, it’ll make a lot of noise and he’ll figure out where I am.
“Come out come out wherever you are,” he sings. “You know I’ll make you come so much your legs will give way.”
I feel a smile on my face as I keep moving along the fence, keeping my body plastered against it. I can feel my own arousal dampening my panties, and now I’m eager for him to get his hands on me. I want to know what he’s got to give.
“You can run, Cricket, but you can’t hide.”
