Trojans MC, #2

Mary has been in love with Pike for years however because of her past with him she tries to avoid him, with good reason. Since she broke her leg and needs to be taken care of, she is staying at Holly’s place that is until Pike takes her to his place. He plans to take care of her and fix what’s broken in their relationship.

The beginning of the story leaves you interested in knowing more. By the end of the first chapter, I was excited to finish the book. The author did a good job of created a realistic world with a sense of time and location. The reader has a wonderful ability to draw the reader into her story. The pace of the story was fast paced right from the start. The main characters and the secondary characters were fascinating and realistic. I liked that both Mary and Pike were not perfect and each had faults that they each had to deal with making them more realistic.

The point of view alternated between Mary and Pike, giving the reader a glimpse inside both characters however, it mainly stays with Mary. The changing point of view was done with care so the reader did not get lost or repeat story lines. The main conflict is the relationship with Mary and Pike. The conflict kept the story moving as we get a deeper and deeper into the story. The characters kept the story moving along. The level of conflict is perfect level, any more conflict and it would have detracted from the overall story line. The dialogue between the characters was honest and typical. The characters voice matched not only the setting but fit their overall personality. The ending while a bit predictable, takes the reader on a wonderful journey that makes you think. I hope we get to see these characters again in the future.

Betrayal is the second book in the Trojans MC series by Sam Crescent. While this book is part of the series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. However, to best understand the characters its best to be read as part of the series.
