Crossroads (Wind Dragons MC Series) by Chantal Fernando
Overview by Publisher:
Ranger is at a crossroads: he has a chance to leave the motorcycle club and do something else with his life—but he keeps getting dragged back. When the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club asks for his help, Ranger agrees, not only because it is hard to say no to them, but also because he has a vested interest.
A woman is missing.
And Ranger knows her.
The Wind Dragons aren’t the only ones hoping this girl can be found—on the hunt is Johanna Chase, a stubborn detective who won’t give up until the missing woman is found safe. She needs Ranger to navigate the underground world of motorcycle clubs, and immediately, sparks fly. Ranger fights the attraction. He has no plans on going there, no matter how beautiful and badass she is. A biker and a cop? Ridiculous.
But the two of them soon realize that they’re in way over their heads, and now they have to trust each other in order to save her. With the WDMC and the police force at their back, it should be no problem, right?
Chantal Fernando has become one of my favourite authors recently. I will read anything she writes. I have a particular fondness for the Wind Dragons MC series. Take all the cool elements of Sons of Anarchy and mix in guys who love their women. While they may be badasses, they are faithful and good men.
Ranger is new the MC. He switched after his former club went down in flames. Ranger is struggling to find his place. He doesn’t have the ties like his buddy Talon (another great book). He is asked by resident badass Faye to investigate a missing persons case. It turns out that Ranger knows the woman in question and he agrees.
Ranger meets the cop he has to work with, Johanna. From the start there are enough sparks to burn down the house. While they are investigating Elizabeth’s disappearance, the lines between law enforcement and criminal are blurred. This leads to some delicious and seriously sexy scenes. Ranger is like sex on a stick. He’s super smart, hot and alpha male. He plays havoc with Jo’s hormones and she can’t resist the temptation he offers.
What works so well is the emotional consequences of their relationship. They have to deal with Elizabeth and her girlish crush on Ranger and also with the reality of a cop and biker dating. Chantal Fernando has that magic touch. She writes characters that you really care about. You are giddy with excitement when they connect, are heartbroken when they experience problems and relieved when they get their happily ever after.
This is the final book in the series (I think) and if you haven’t read this series, you really need to! Even if you aren’t into motorcycle clubs, the men and ladies of the Wind Dragons are more than just bikes and bad behaviour. They have depth and love breathed into them by the author. This book was the perfect ending to the best series!
