- Read my reviews of the previous books in the Broken Chains MC series.
This conclusion to the major conflict facing the Broken Chains MC and the final relationship we’d been teased was absolutely worth the wait. I wasn’t able to re-read the previous books, but I had no problem slipping back into this world with these characters. Rory, the club president’s younger brother, has been a constant presence in the series, while Nate has had a much more complicated arc through the storyline. Initially, I wasn’t sure about their romance potential, but Lindsey immediately brings to life the connection seeded in previous books in a way that made me all-in on their love story.
Bringing the series’ overarching external plot to a close in a book that features two men who technically aren’t part of the MC is a bold choice that never wavers in Lindsey’s capable hands. I enjoyed that a man who was not technically a club member leads the charge in solving the big problem, supported by a man whose personal story has kept him on the outskirts. After all, Rory’s life is inextricably tied to the club despite his physical limitations and decision to focus on a different profession. He also has an active stake in the issue due to previous and ongoing problems he continues to be involved with. The goal is literally about setting up the bad guy to die because that is the only way to solve that problem in their world. This book works best as the conclusion to the full series instead of a stand-alone, so readers should already be well aware of the gray areas these heroes exist in.
The events of this book don’t take much actual time, but the romance slips in and out of the story effortlessly. Nate’s life is coming full circle while Rory is, in many ways, just beginning, but their shared history eliminates a lot of the necessary first steps. This lets Lindsey use both the romance and external conflicts to support and enhance each other in a way that makes it difficult to put the book down. They pay off the loose ends for previous heroes in a satisfying manner while keeping the primary focus rooted in this book’s narrative voices.
