I am Emmalyn Mikaelson.

My husband, in a rage, hit me in front of the wrong person. Diego, or Kincaid to most, beat the hell out of him for it. I left with Diego anyway. Even though he could turn on me just like my husband did, I knew I had a better chance of survival with Diego. That was until I realized Kincaid could hurt me so much worse than my husband ever could. Physical pain pales in comparison to troubles of the heart.

I am Diego “Kincaid” Anderson.

She was a waitress at a bar in a bad situation. I brought her to my clubhouse because I knew her husband would kill her if I didn’t. Now she has my protection and that of the Cerberus MC. I never expected her to become something more to me. I was in more trouble than I’ve ever been in before, and that’s saying a lot considering I served eight years in the Marine Corp with Special Forces.




“Since you kissed and made up does that mean I get to stay at the clubhouse tonight?” I turn my attention from Em as she flits around the bar like she’s worked here her entire life, and look at Kid, who has a hopeful look on his face.

“I hate to burst your bubble, but so long as she’s at Doc’s, that’s where you will be.” He sighs, loudly. “What?”

“I just figured since you guys,” he does this weird side pump with his hand at his waist, “you know… I figured you’d be staying there with her.”

“I told you we took a nap.” I tilt my already warm beer to my lips and take a sip.

“Really? I thought that was code for getting laid or something.” Shadow laughs boisterously beside him.

Slapping Kid on the back, “Sorry Kid, if the Prez isn’t getting pussy, it looks like you’re not getting pussy either.”

I grin when Kid’s face falls and realizes that what Shadow just said is a pretty accurate analysis of the situation.

“If you’re having trouble sealing the deal, Prez, I can give you a few pointers.” The scrape of Shadow’s chair as he moves away from Kid makes my lip twitch in an almost smile.

Shadow’s reaction would be fitting almost any time one of the guys made some dumb ass remark about me not being able to handle any type of situation. Kid is lucky I was able to wrap my arms around Emmalyn for a few hours this afternoon, or his ass would be laid out on the nasty bar floor by now.

“First off,” I say putting my beer down on the table, “I don’t need any pointers from you.” I tap his chest with my finger. “Second, if Em was just some other piece of pussy to me, I’d have already had my one and done.” I lean in closer, so he knows how serious I am. “You don’t need to worry about my dick and what it’s doing or not doing with Emmalyn.”

He reaches up and rubs his chest where my finger hit it. “I’m not worried about your dick, Prez. I’m worried about mine.”

Shadow laughs again, and I can’t help but join in at the wimpy sound of Kid’s admission.

I hit the side button on my phone to check the time. “You have three hours until I take her home. If you need to get your dick wet, you better do it in a hurry. I expect you back at Doc’s no later than one-thirty.”

He jumps with an ear to ear grin, slaps me on the back, and whistles loudly to a blonde across the room. I watch as she downs her drink, grabs her purse, and heads to the front door.

“Thanks, Dad,” Kid whispers in my ear as he heads in the direction of his all-too-willing conquest of the night.

Let me start this review by saying, if you are a survivor of domestic violence and are wanting to read a story where the female overcomes all the hardship she has been through and manages to be a wonderful character, then this book will do you justice. Just keep in mind that she has been through the mill and has insecurities as we all do when getting out of hell.
Kincaid is our Prez and is involved with a search and rescue type business, after saving his brother's lady he stops into a bar and encounters the most beautiful creature he has had the pleasure of seeing, but soon realizes she is married and therefore not up for grabs. As he decides to just leave her alone and find himself a barfly he sees something that changes his mind in a hurry, and so begins his new obsession.
Emmalyn is suffering everyday of her life from an abusive situation, and just when she thinks she is going to get away, she is discovered and she pays the price hugely for her plans. So she does what she is programmed to do, she goes to work and tries to avoid the agonizing pain she is in. What starts out to be a typical night at work turns into one she will never forget. Or Regret.
This couple was a great story and I found myself engrossed in each page as it progressed. I felt so bad for Em as she wanted so much to believe in the luck she had received when she met Kincaid, but the old inadequacies would pop up from time to time, lucky for her  Kincaid was right there beside her reassuring her that she could trust in what they had together. He was kind and tender when necessary to her and always maintained his alpha Prez persona when the time called for it.
We had some drama and serious action in this book, and when  Karma comes back tenfold to a couple characters in this book, really hard to them, I loved every single second of it.
All in all a great book and I cannot wait for the next one.
