Rough & Ruthless (Notorious Devils MC #4) by Hayley Faiman


Mary-Ann Lukin has never had it easy. Having survived the torments of abuse for far too long, it's a miracle that life somehow managed to leave her with a little bit of hope—hope of a future filled with happiness. 

Max "MadDog" Duhart has lived more than one lifetime, earning the respect he's due as the president of the Original Charter of Notorious Devils. Nevertheless, with life still yet to live, he wants more than the regret that's tarnished his past. 

Their connection is instant, though they know they shouldn't act on it—not with more than thirty years between them. Not with their families tied together by the club's brotherhood. 

Yet, there's something about the sweet, broken woman that whispers of a fresh start for an old man. And while he may be rough and ruthless, she cannot deny the way she feels when she looks into his haunted blue eyes. 

One phone call. One cry for help. One motorcycle ride, and life as they know it is never the same.

The men of the Notorious Devils MC piss me off to no end.

They’re arrogant, they’re major man-whores, they all think they can just tell women what they will do, when and they’ll just jump to do their bidding… just begging for their attention.

So, can someone please tell me why, I fucking adore “MadDog” Duhart? I know I shouldn’t be surprised. I know that “Fury” Duhart, his son, had to learn to be an asshole from someone. But, hot damn, this man seriously got my motor going.

Being the senior Duhart, he’s seen his share of road miles, but never once did I question the age difference between him and Mary-Ann. He never came across as old. He had more than enough energy to keep Mary-Ann happy and satisfied.

And of all the women in the Notorious Devils MC series, Mary-Ann was my favorite. She didn’t let MadDog walk all over her near as much as some of the other women. Yeah, she had to follow the biker “Old Lady” code, but she did it with class and panache it never really felt like she was actually towing the biker babe line.

If you’re a fan of MC books, and don’t mind your men with a healthy sprinkle of assholishness, you’ll love this series. They’re a group of men you’ll love to bitch about. And no matter how much the things they do, the way they act or the things they say piss you off, I guarantee that by the end of each of their stories you’ll find yourself actually liking them and start considering a life as an Old Lady with no idea how you got there.
