Isaak “Ice” Koval is on a club mission when he sees a woman who stops him dead in his tracks. Soleil is a sweet, sexy, girl-next-door type. She’s an innocent who should be nowhere near the rough-and-ready world of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club. But Ice knows Soleil belongs with him—and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her.
After a life of drifting from one thing to the next, Soleil Brodeur is determined to take control of her life. When her breakup with her manipulative fiancé turns ugly, Soleil searches out the stranger who offered her a lifeline and ends up in a Las Vegas biker bar where she meets a gorgeous, dangerous man straight out of her most secret fantasies.
High on adrenaline, she finds herself falling faster than she thought possible. But Soleil knows little about the territory she’s stumbled into, and even less about what it really means to be Ice’s woman.
Torpedo Ink is back to save the day! The story picks up where the previous book left off. The club finds themselves celebrating Breezy and Steele’s wedding in Las Vegas. The trip to Las Vegas is also an undercover mission to retrieve information on missing children and human traffic. While following a couple of suspects, Ice sees Soleil for the first time and immediately feels different. At that moment, Soleil is having an argument with her boyfriend and runs away from him. Back at her hotel, Soleil meets Lana whom after seeing her distressed and concerned in the restroom, advises Soleil to leave her boyfriend and gives her her number just in case she needs any help.
Soleil decides to end her relationship with her pushy boyfriend and finds out that he plans to force her to marry him while in Las Vegas and then kill her in an accident. Soleil escapes just in time and tries to get Lana’s help. While on the run, Soleil comes across Torpedo Ink and uses her connection with Lana to ask for sanctuary. Ice, thinking that he would never see Soleil again, helps her and takes her away from her dangerous boyfriend.
I have been keeping a close eye on the Torpedo Ink series because of its connection to The Drake Sisters and Sea Haven series and so far I still want to keep reading more! Every book hints on new stories for characters that keep feeding my curiosity on the past of the club members. Not to mention that Jackson Deveau is still on some hit list out there.
I really liked that Soleil was very independent and clear about what she wanted. She knew something was not right with her boyfriend, the way he started to treat her and make her change her lifestyle. It would definitely be intimidating to find myself in a situation like hers knowing that he has the power to make people think she was mentally unstable.
Feehan’s books center around romance stories, but oh boy, when she writes fight and action scenes, she writes them to keep you at the edge of your seat! The Torpedo Ink series is somewhat different than her other series in the sense that the club went through some disturbing events as children and now their pasts haunt them. These events make their presence more ruthless, making them have no remorse over their actions when it comes to punishing the bad guys. This said, I do warn that this might not be a series for everyone.
There are several characters that I’m interested in reading their stories. Especially Alena and Pierce, the Romeo and Juliet of motorcycle clubs! Every time these two are mentioned, chemistry can be felt immediately between them. Their clubs might fight to death or join forces against the others, but these two better survive.
If you have been a fan of Christine Feehan and read her different series, you know the kind of romance that is waiting for you. If you are new to the series, you can start the series with Vendetta Road and then catch up to the rest of the series, but do it fast.
