Review: Gunner by L. Wilder (Satan's Fury MC: Memphis #5)


Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Enticing Journey Book Promotions.

L. Wilder returns to the world of Satan's Fury MC: Memphis with the fifth novel, Gunner, and it's my favorite one to date. When Cade left the military, he was twenty-four and at a loss as to the next direction in his life. Then he meets a man named Gus who offers him an opportunity to go for a ride, and it's an invitation that will change the trajectory of Cade's life forever. Earning the road name of Gunner, he becomes a prospect and then a full-fledged member of the Memphis chapter of the Satan's Fury motorcycle club. For the past eight years, he's earned his spot alongside his brothers and looks to Gus as the father figure he always needed. His life is good, and when August James comes along, something tells him it could become a whole lot better. The beautiful but troubled twenty-four-year-old single mother, however, has reached out to the club's president for a reason. Her three-year-old daughter, Harper, has been taken, and August's mother has told her to go to the one person who can help her get Harper back: the Satan's Club Memphis chapter prez himself, Gus. Life for Gunner and August is about to change...

This book was absolutely everything I could have hoped it could be. Cade/Gunner and August had interesting back stories, made even better, at least as far as I was concerned, by the fact that those histories were not tied to each other. In short, they both had their own lives prior to meeting one another, and while their first meeting may not have been all that great, it was August reaching out to Gus that marked yet another turning point in their respective lives that would go on to lead them down one road together. From the intrigue and action surrounding August's situation with her jerk of an ex-husband and the abduction of their daughter plus some longtime, yet-to-be resolved stuff regarding Gus (this wasn't all that difficult to figure out since it was really rather obvious) and his own past, I liked the role that Cade/Gunner had to play. There was simply no hating either of the main characters and the connection that they shared was one that I felt was strong and worthy to be built upon. As far as Gus is concerned, well, let's just say that I'll be counting the days till his book is released. I'm awarding Gunner five stars. ♥
