REVIEW : Chasing Claire (Hells Saints Motorcycle Club #2) by Paula Marinaro

Claire Winston knows she’s lucky to be alive—and even luckier to have the love and protection of a man like Prosper, her adoptive father and leader of the Hells Saints Motorcycle Club. Yet, try as she may, she can’t leave yesterday behind. She’s still haunted by Reno, the bad-boy biker her heart loves but her spirit fears. And she can’t seem to escape the terrifying memories of a night filled with blood, bullets, and brutality.
Hells Saints soldier Reno has tried everything with liquor and lace to get Claire off his mind. But he just can’t forget her freckles, her fierce fragility, and her tender heart. He knows he’s the only man who can give her the love she truly deserves.
As Claire and Reno spiral back into each other’s lives, they wonder if happiness is finally in their cards. But when violence once again explodes around them, Claire must decide if she really can trust Reno and commit to life with him—or if she’ll stay chained to her past forever.

I'm definitely not going to spoil this one for you, but this is one of my favorite surprise reads. Would I compare it to Sons of Anarchy? Hmm, I actually think it plays out much better than any episode. This is so suspense packed and has some moments of gore. It really is a perfect balance between action and romance.

Now I admit, I have not read book 1 of the series, something I will fix asap, but Chasing Claire does a good job of filling you in on some happenings from Raine Falling.

Paula Marinaro really gave this book such a wonderful flow. I appreciate that all of the characters  had a strong voice and their stories all merged wonderfully.

The main players here though, are indeed Claire and Reno. They are so completely different but their relationship just works to me. I mean, they deal with some pretty shitty misunderstandings but their hearts are truly in the right place. Their angst levels are thankfully not too high but that doesn't mean they don't deal with some serious mess.

I really recommend that you check this book out and you've got some time to snatch up book 1 too!
