Rake's Redemption

Chantal Fernando
Now Live! 

In New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando’s latest novel in the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series, Rake—baddest of the bad boys—gets his own romance at last!

Rake is known for being up for anything, in and out of the bedroom. He’s wild, he’s deadly, yet quick with a joke or a stolen kiss. Known as the player of the WDMC, he loves women, the more the merrier. However, behind his womanizing façade, Rake hides the pain of losing his first love, Bailey. He hasn’t loved anyone since, and doesn’t think he ever will.

Seven years after their split, Rake and Bailey run into each other at the MC’s favorite club. Old wounds resurface, secrets are spilled...and passionate feelings are awakened. But they’ve each done things to hurt the other, hurt them too badly to get over it—haven’t they? Only when Bailey’s connection to Rake puts her in danger from another Club member does he realize that there’s nothing he won’t do to protect her—and claim her as his once again.

Adam and Bailey were high school lovers that thought they would last a lifetime. Young and in love, they had plans to grow old together and never leave the others side. But those plans fell apart and they went there separate ways to deal with the heartbreak. Several years later they run into each other, both at very different points in their life. Bailey now a teacher, and Adam, now known as Rake, part of the Wind Dragons MC. Neither of them want to deal with another broken heart again, but they also can't stay away from each other once they realize they live in the same town again. Will their love last this time, or are the headed for more pain?

"Because Rake is my guardian angel. Or maybe my personal grim reaper."

This is one of my favorite MC series, and I just can't get enough of it. I have loved every character that Chantal Fernando creates, and Rake and Bailey were no exception. I loved how different they were but how they brought out the hidden sides to each other. In the previous books we got to see the tough side to Rake and how much of a player he was. But in this book we learned that he could actually be really sweet at times and he cared so much for those around him. Made me swoon more than a little. 

The great thing that I loved about Rake and Bailey's relationship was that it only moved forward. We knew they had a past, and of course if was brought up at times, but it never took over the building relationship that was happening in the present. I was really happy that we didn't have a bunch of flashbacks happening or too much harping on what went on when they were younger. It was important to how they got back together, but after that their relationship only got stronger and more mature, and it was good to see. 

The one thing I had a problem with was how fast Rake and Bailey seemed to go from enemies to lovers. I understood when they were angry at each other and their was some tension, but then the change in Rake kind of came out of no where. I just would have liked if that transition was done a bit smoother. 

But the bottom line is that I still loved this book and the couple. Getting to see the past characters and what they were doing in their life was a great bonus to the story also. I highly recommend this series to all my MC lovers. Rake's story could be read as a standalone but I still recommend reading the other books as well.
