Last Mile (A Vicious Cycle Novel) - Katie Ashley


5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
After her father was murdered in the line of duty, ATF agent Samantha Vargas is determined to take down the scumbags of the drug trade. When her partner takes on a case to infiltrate the Hells Raiders MC, Samantha agrees to go undercover as his old lady but is surprised to find herself drawn to the very man she is investigating.

Benjamin “Bishop” Malloy has worked hard to carve a place for himself both in and out of the MC world. Working days as a mechanic, he spends his nights rebuilding motorcycles with the hope of one day owning his own shop. After taking one of the club’s new hang-arounds under his wing, Bishop is conflicted over his growing attraction for the man’s girlfriend.

Even though she’s determined to bring down the Raiders, Samantha discovers their world isn’t as black-and-white as she thought. And as the stakes grow higher, she’s in danger of losing more than her heart.

MY THOUGHTS -
Well I have to admit, I am impressed with this one. I loved the other two, but I think this was my favorite. Yes, it still had that edgy motor cycle club theme, (still had the violence, swearing, and sex) but this one just felt more ... human, more heartfelt. By the end of the book I was actually in tears!

The character development was excellent! I absolutely loved Samantha. I think she is my favorite leading lady of the series. And of course I loved Bishop - who wouldn't? And I love the masterful way Katie brings back all the characters from the previous two books. like they really are one big happy family.

Also the story line seemed a bit more believable to me in this book, not as far fetched. I loved the whole - ATF/biker thing LOL, fun! 

This is the only series I have read by this author. I don't know if her other books are anything like these, but she sure has piqued my interest. If you have read any of her other books please let me know!

Thank you Penguin Books for sending me this book for my honest review!
