Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance

A son in danger
The Demon Horde MC are no strangers to breaking the rules, but making a man pay to get his son back crosses one too many lines for Skeeter. He'll do anything, including play by the book, if it means bringing his son home. Hiring straitlaced attorney Miriam Englestein is meant to solve his problems, not create new ones. One look at her and his good-guy facade goes out the window. He wants to throw his buttoned-up lawyer onto the back of his bike and make her his.

A woman at risk
Miri wants nothing to do with the club. Her father may be in their pocket, but she's on the right side of the law and she intends to stay there. But there's something about Skeeter's plea—something about him—she can't walk away from. While she's tempted to let him do unspeakably wicked and delicious things to her, she can't risk her law practice, or her heart.

A dangerous deception
When Miriam agrees to pose as Skeeter's woman to get details they need for the case, things heat up fast—and it's not long before the lines between business and personal blur, and they're both in over their heads. In the MC world, lies have a way of coming back to you, and they put everyone at risk.

3 leather lovin' stars for REBEL CUSTODY.

When Jean Luc Devaneaux, aka Skeeter, finds out he has a son, he enlists the help of attorney Miriam Englestein to help him get custody the right way. Tempted to just snatch and grab the kid, Jean Luc knows his best bet is to pretend to play the blackmail game the child's guardian wants to play. He doesn't expect to fall head over heels for Miri, who is pure and white to his dirty and soiled soul. Miri falls fast and hard for Jean Luc, but she'd be lying if she said she was unconcerned about his extracurricular activities with the MC. Can they make a go of a real relationship with all the obstacles standing in their way?

The Demon Horde MC is a really great series that has completely sucked me in, but REBEL CUSTODY just didn't do it for me. Jean Luc and Miri had good chemistry, and their connection was believable, but I'm not a huge fan of the whole insta-love thing as a rule, and add in the fact that Miri was a virgin who gave it up almost immediately after meeting Jean Luc (after dating another dude for a year) and I had more eye rolls than lip biting on this one.

The book also felt a little disjointed at times, with suspense elements thrown in but feeling unresolved, particularly with the main element of the story, the custody battle. Those suspense elements also were very anticlimactic, and I really, really hoped for more on that score. Overall, I enjoyed REBEL CUSTODY because it gave me more of the Demon Horde MC, but was disappointed in the guts of the story.

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; some condom use; no BDSM/kink; attempted sexual assault; some violence, no murder.
