Release Date: February 16, 2016
She was, still is, and will never be anything but my everything.
Our love was all consuming, passionate, and forbidden. We took risks to be together, carrying on an affair for years before her psychotic drug lord husband found the truth behind the lies. She barely escaped with her life … and that of my newborn son.
My club president told me that our love was no longer worth the risk, gave me a choice, and loyalty to the club being what it is, I walked away from her. I left behind the only thing I’ve ever wanted more than life itself and remained the dutiful soldier to a corrupt leader.
Six years and a promotion to club president later, it’s time the lies stopped. She IS worth the risk, I’ve NEVER gone a day without thinking about her OR my son, and I know underneath it all she DOES still love me. She just won’t admit it … yet.
It’s time to run this club my way and make my family what it should have always been—complete. The road may have been long and lonely, but the journey is far from over.
Unrequited captured me with its gorgeous cover. I wasn’t familiar with the author; Max Henry and I obviously had not read anything she has previously written. So with no expectations or any preconceived notions, I dived into Unrequited and didn’t come up for a breath of air until the very last page. And then, I would like to say there was a sigh of relief – but it was more like a string of expletives because it ends on a cliff-hanger and dammit, if I do not need the rest of this story like I need my next breath.
MC books are favourites of mine, the promise that my moral compass will be tested and boundaries will be pushed to the extreme keeps me addicted. Every chapter of Unrequited is filled with heart racing suspense and the equality of drama distributed between both main characters, has solidified Max Henry as a gem in the MC book world.
In an unexpected meeting the pull between King and Elena is undeniable. But like oil and water their worlds are intertwined but very much separate. The question is simple can they be together? And how will they make it happen? As every hurdle is bigger than the last, this journey is gruesome, gut-wrenching and painful. With a cloud of hopelessness often seeping it’s way into this story, the obvious love shared between King and Elena will hold your heart in a vice, praying for light at the end of the tunnel.
Unrequited takes readers into the intricacies of the underground world, with threads of passion and chemistry woven through this story line. The love between Elena and King is brought to life with a well thought out and executed backdrop of the underground world. Filled with blood, bruises and brutality, Unrequited has successfully fulfilled my MC needs.
