This audio was a bit different from my usual reading/listening. I don’t like MC stories and this one is definitely that genre.
That said, I have to confess it was engaging.
When Ryder, an unemployed Marine, and Terri, a flower shop owner, meet by chance, they don’t realize that they in fact met when they were children. A meeting that affected not only them, but also both their families. Families that were very much part of the motorcycle clubs and at times dangerously so.
Their story was at times farfetched, with a modern twist to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet story, but that didn’t stop me from listening to it , specially when the story took so many detours.
At times funny, at others touching , it also brought up a very real social issue. When the brave men and women who serve our country come back home, we, as a society are not doing enough to help them integrate back to civil life. Unemployment and sadly, suicide is high for this group. The least we can do as individuals and as a country, is give them a hand . Kudos to the author for that reminder.
For that, the story gets a 4 star rating.
