Rough and Real (Notorious Devils MC #7) by Hayley Faiman


Ivy Gaines has loved one man in her lifetime. After fifteen years of marriage and three kids, reality hasn’t changed that—but sometimes love isn’t enough. 

West “Camo” Gaines has never wanted anyone the way he wants his wife, but the Notorious Devils’ club life has opened his eyes and awakened a desire he knows he can’t explore with the mother of his children.

Lies, misunderstanding, betrayal and silence are the bitter pills they swallow daily as the marriage they thought would last forever begins to unravel. It isn’t until club rivalries threaten to shatter their entire world that they realize how much they have to fight for. 

When things get rough and real, they’re forced to remember just how deep their love goes.

I'm pretty much a master at arriving late to all parties. Did it once again with this one, picking up the series on the conclusion.  Am I sad?  Not in the slightest.  If the rest of the series is this good, I have a personal party just now starting.

Sometimes life is ugly and sometimes life in books are ugly.  And at points I felt defeated for the characters since it was so raw and real.  Or should I say the characters are "rough" and "real?" But after the bad comes the good.  And with fights comes make up sex.  And with anger comes deep, embedded true love.

Hayley brought it all on the table.  This was emotional, frustrating, angering, sexy, gripping... I dunno... throw some more adjectives out there, it probably had it. 

This is MC life at its best and it's ugliest.
