Review: Meant To Be (Heaven Hill #1) by Laramie Briscoe

Blurb

Single mother.
Laid off factory worker.
Drug runner for the Heaven Hill Motorcycle Club.

When Denise Cunningham is served with foreclosure papers on her birthday it’s the last straw in a long line of bad luck. Sitting and crying about things has never been how she solved her problems, but this time she decides to do just that. A phone call interrupts her pity party and changes the course of her life forever.

Loyal brother.
Grease monkey mechanic.
Vice President of the Heaven Hill Motorcycle Club.

William Walker Jr., known as Liam to his club, needs a new recruit that is just naïve enough and desperate enough to do what he asks without question. When Denise Cunningham lands in his lap, he decides to hire her – not because he wants to, because he has to.

Neither are comfortable in their new roles, but he needs help and she can’t stand to lose anything else.

As bullets fly and a local Bowling Green, KY reporter works to bring the club down, Liam and Denise find themselves getting closer to one another. When the stakes get high and outside forces try to keep them away from each other, they have to decide if they really are meant to be.

My Review

I go into any motorcycle club book with 2 authors on my mind: Madeline Sheehan and Kristen Ashley. I probably shouldn’t go in thinking that way but I can’t help it. I deeply loved each story these authors have published. I have read many other MC books that I have enjoyed but none that I have just adored or felt so connected with the characters in it.

For the most part, I wonder if the book is going to be down and dirty of what a MC is really like or a fairly clean MC that used to be bad. If you have read the two authors I mentioned, then you get what I mean.

It took me a bit to get into this story. Not because the story is bad but the way it is written. I am used to a story being clear on whose POV I am reading. Most of the time, it is only from the female’s POV and, if I am lucky, there will be a small part of the guy’s thoughts. Sometimes the story flips between the guy and the girl. This book is neither. You get just about everyone’s POV. These are not split in between sections. You will just get a small insight into a person then it will go back to another person. This took some adjusting on my part.

Another things that bothers me about the book is the passing of time. The two main people of the book seem to be getting really close really fast without a lot of interaction between the two being shown to the reader. I get that in an intense situation that people can get close a lot faster than if you just met a person by reaching for the same gallon of milk at the grocery store or something else that is a part of day-to-day chores mundane life. I would just like to see peeks into their interactions more when they are at home.

Once I got into the groove of the writing style, I needed to know what was going to happen to Denise and Liam’s relationship and this club business. Heaven Hill Motorcycle club is into illegal things. No hearts and flowers like from KA’s books.  Something terrible happens to a person that didn’t deserve it. I did the whole *gasp*-hand over my mouth-eyes wide thing as I read it.

I will be reading the next installment of the series.  Please comment and let me know what you thought of this if you’ve read it!
