Deanna Monte has stayed in the life of her drug addicted, low-life father since her mother passed away. She may hate her dad, but after her mother's dying wish for Deanna to not give up on him, she knows she can't walk away.
When Deanna is given to Demon as payment for her father's debt, she fights with everything inside of her and refuses to submit. But she's never met a man like Demon, a cruel man that is big and powerful and can take her life as easily as he breathes. She shouldn't want him the way she does, not after he takes her away from her life, refusing to let her go, and tells her that she is his now.
But she does, and that frightens her most of all.
Owned by the Bastard is the first book in The Soldiers of Wrath MC series by authors, Jenika Snow and Sam Crescent. It is also the first book I've read by this talented authors. This book had it all; gritty intense drama, super-hot sexy bikers, and a feisty tempered heroine! Demon and Deanna at first seem to be an unlikely pair to end up together. This is the journey they take on their way to finding true love and a HEA.
Demon is the President of the Soldiers of Wrath MC and he didn't get there by being a pansy. He's hard, cold and lethal. He leads with an iron fist and expects loyalty to the club above all else. Deanna made a dying promise to her mom to take care of her drug addicted father. She didn't realize the horrors she would have to endure when she made that promise.
Deanna's dad owes the club money and he offers her to them as payment. The moment Demon saw her picture he wanted her. Deanna is side swiped when she visits her dad and the brothers show up to collect payment - her! She is furious and doesn't make it easy for them.
I really enjoyed this first book and I look forward to reading more by these amazing authors. They have the ability to create a world that you get lost in. Their writing is fast paced and you are not left lingering or wondering. The secondary characters are well developed and I want to know what is going on with Joker and Amy. This is a great addition to my library and I highly recommend you do the same.
