Book Review Express 5 Star Review Corner brings you
“Kid” Book 2 in the Cerberus MC series by Marie James. (review below)
When Khloe Devaro’s best friend and fiancé is lost to the war in Iraq, she’s beyond distraught. Her intentions of joining him in the afterlife are thwarted by a Cerberus Motorcycle club member. Too young to do anything on her own, the only alternative she has now is to take Kid up on his offer to stay at the MC Clubhouse. As if that’s not a disaster waiting to happen, but anything is better than returning to the foster home she’s been forced to live in the last three years.
Dustin “Kid” Andrews spent four years as a Marine; training, fighting, and learning how to survive the most horrendous of conditions. He never imagined that holding a BBQ fundraiser for a local fallen soldier would end up as the catalyst that turns his world upside down. Resisting his attraction for a girl he’s not even certain is of legal age was easy, until he’s forced to intervene when her intentions become clear. All his training is wasted as far as he’s concerned, since none of that will help him when it comes to Khloe.
Will the self-proclaimed man-whore sleep with a woman in every country he visits as planned, or will the beautiful, yet feisty girl living down the hall throw a wrench in his plan?
I fell in love with Kid in the first book of this series, Kincade. Kid has a happy go lucky attitude, always has a smile and best of all he has a heart of gold (not to mention he is loyal to a fault). Nothing could be more apparent when he first spots Khloe, a sexy young lady who is about to take her life because she thinks the world has forsaken her. Kid does what he does best, he rushes to the rescue.
As Kid and Khloe begin to bond, other feelings start to bloom. However Khloe is 28 days from her 18th birthday and therefore off limits (no matter how badly she tempts him). The storyline will have you laughing, sighing and wanting to knock these two in the head at times. But one thing is a constant – you will definitely keep turning page after page to see exactly how Kid and Khloe manage to work through a world of differences and some extremely rough times. 2 thumbs us for a heartwarming continuation of life with the Cerberus MC Members and their women!
