Aaron don’t ever call me Fatbaby’ Sims is lucky to be alive. Or at least that is what everyone keeps telling him. He doesn’t feel lucky, though.
He’s scarred, has more than a little bit of a bad attitude, and there isn’t a single day that goes by that he doesn’t wish his wife would’ve just finished off the job.
After being denied his old position at the fire department, he leaves, and doesn’t look back. He heads straight to Alabama and into the semi-welcoming arms of The Dixie Wardens MC. There he becomes a part of a brotherhood that forces him to get back in the land of the living.
Imogen is a smart girl. A girl who doesn’t always make the best decisions.
Her heart is in the right place when she walks into that prison, but it doesn’t take long for her to realize that her heart shouldn’t have had any say so in the matter. Especially when one wrong move lands her in the arms of a scarred man that looks frightening enough to scare any sane woman away.
Immediately enthralled by the angry man, she tries to get closer to him. But the harder she tries to get to know him, the further he pushes her away.
The only thing Aaron wanted to do after his now ex-wife was sent to jail was escape. Escape the awful memories. The pity-filled eyes. The curious glances.
He does a damn fine job at ensuring he draws as little as attention as possible, but then that annoying woman with her startling blue eyes starts hammering away at his resolve. Makes him feel when he doesn’t want to feel.
Imogen comes into his life and carves out a place for herself, obliterating his defenses one heated kiss at a time.
It doesn’t take long, and he realizes he’s in deep. Too deep to ever want to come out.
Imogen will know what it’s like to be loved by a reject.
This is the first book in the Dixie Wardens Rejects MC. This is another spin off, but it is a complete stand alone.
We’ve met Aaron in a previous book. I’ve read them all, so I can’t remember which book exactly. I believe it was a Kilogre Fire one though. I could be wrong. What his ex-wife did to him is horrible. He is scarred because of her. He couldn’t go back to the fire department. That’s how he found himself a member of the Dixie Warden Rejects and a medic at the prison for the disabled criminals.
He’s a great guy.
Another tragedy happens, and now he is a k-9 officer. I am still mad at Lani for what happened!
Imogen is awesome. She’s a feisty, pixie of a mechanic. She crushed on Aaron in highschool. But he never noticed her…
Or did he?
This is yet another great read by Lani. I look forward to her release every month. Once I see it on my kindle, I get so excited and have to start as soon as I can. I don’t stop until I’m finished. Then I’m forced to wait another month.
Of course there were some great quotes at each chapter.
“Milk is good for your teeth. So is minding your own goddamned business.”
~Note to self
“I’m just a girl, standing in front of a salad bar, wishing it was an all you can eat buffet.”
~Imogen’s secret thoughts
I just have to say Big Papa’s story of Sean’s “accident” had me cracking up.
Truth was so funny.
I’m really curious about Ghost, especially when he was drunk and talking to Imogen.
