I usually don’t like pregnancy tropes but this one I shockingly really enjoyed. I saw a few comments of people saying they didn’t like how her pregnancy wasn’t realistic or whatever in this story, but I honestly couldn’t care less 😂. I know absolutely nothing about pregnancy or birth so it didn’t bother me too much. Overall, this book was a great start to the series! I’m excited to see what Arrows book is like.
Dex and Faye have known each other all their lives. They came from prominent families that placed an importance on their status in the community. Dex has always been the older brother Faye needed. He sensed her loneliness as a child. He made sure she knew she was an important part of his life. As they grew older, Dex moved on. Faye became her own woman. She was an intelligent law student with the perfect boyfriend. She focused on her achievements and tried to move past her family's expectations. When she catches her perfect boyfriend cheating on her something snaps inside. She is no longer content being the perfect girlfriend, the perfect daughter, and perfect student. She wants to experience life outside of her small world. She makes the decision to step out of her comfort zone and begin living. One night out and a one night stand will change everything in her life. She hooked up with a biker. That biker was the man she had built her childhood dreams around. The man she no longer really knows. That one night leads to her being pregnant.
When Dex catches wind that Faye is pregnant the rules of the game change. He takes her into his protection. He makes her a part of his life. He installs her in the Wind Dragon's clubhouse. He wants to make sure their child is brought into the world safely. He would do anything for Faye and his child except make her his old lady. He has his reasons and he's not sharing them with Faye.
Faye will flounder around in her new world. She is exposed to a lifestyle she never knew existed. She will have to turn a blind eye on the shenanigans that are going on daily. She will have to learn to turn the other cheek. She will have to learn not to have expectations as far as Dex is concerned. She will have to draw on her wits and inner strength to survive in Dex's world.
Faye will find new strengths she never knew she had. She will find a new family that values her. She will make new friends and new enemies. She will become a woman to be reckoned with. She will learn how to handle Dex. She will show him that her love is more than an old childhood friendship. She will show him what a true partner is. She will earn his respect and the respect from the brothers.
I absolutely loved this book. Not only were the leading characters powerful, the secondary characters also demanded my attention. The club dynamics and comradery was enthralling. The entire story kept my full attention. When I finished the book I was dying for Arrow's book to release. I am invested in the Wind Dragons MC series.
Faye’s character is so funny, lovable and strong. She does not shy away and has a mouth she is not afraid to use it. Throughout this book there was never a time I got tired of her character. Faye catches her boyfriend Eric cheating on her in their home, so true to her character, Faye does the only thing she can think of. She gets drunk and has a one night stand with Eric’s brother Dex. Faye, Eric and Dex grew up together but Faye has always wanted Dex. I loved how the author goes back and shows readers how even at a young age Faye knew Dex was going to be hers someday. Faye thinks one night with Dex is all she needs, but that one night throws Faye right into the welcoming arms of Dex and the Wind Dragon MC.
Dex aka Sin is a total alpha male. He is controlling, sexy and does not play games. What I really loved about Dex was that he is not arrogant and cold. He’s gentle and caring and he only shows his bad biker side when he is out on runs with the MC. Even when he makes mistakes he owns up to them. He wants to do things right with Faye. He wants to take care of her, protect her and give her a life she deserves.
“It means you’re mine now.”
The connection, chemistry and banter between Dex and Faye is so natural and easy going I could not get enough of them. The members of the Wind Dragon MC’s thought they were in control but Faye turns there world around and things get really funny.Of course this is a MC book so it has that element of danger from rival MC’s. I loved all the members of the MC, they grew on me and added so much to this story. The closeness of the brother hood and their acceptance of Faye was delightful to read. We are introduced to Arrow’s character and I have a feeling his book is going to put me through the ringer. I can’t wait until it comes out.

It's a little bit gritty, but it's not mired in darkness.
The biker bad boy is a little bit moody and broody, but he's all squishy in the inside for his girl and his girl is a firecracker with a brain.
I didn't like how Faye and Dex came together as adults (he picked her up a couple of days after she dumped his brother for cheating on her) but I loved them as a couple.
I loved their history and I loved their chemistry.
They were sweet and sexy and a lot of fun to read about.
Faye is not the type of girl you'd expect to become a biker's old lady but she quickly fit right in and the bonds she built with the rest of the brothers was a highlight for me.
As a whole, the book was far from perfect. The characters could have done with some fleshing out and the plotline and execution could have been less messy but it was entertaining enough that it didn't bother me as much as it probably should have.
I liked the men of the Wind Dragon's MC and I want to read more about them.
I'd like to read more about what makes them tick and I want to see them get their HEAs!
If future books in the series could come with a bit more substance then that'd be the cherry on the cake for me but I'm going to keep reading regardless!
This is Faye's story and she has loved Dex since she was a little girl. But life changes and she then starts dating his brother. Faye discovers her boyfriend is cheating when she walks in to find her best friend with him. She then runs into Dex and decides to throw caution to the wind and have her one night with her childhood love Dex. This results in her getting pregnant. Her parents through her out and Dex finds out and he is ready to accept his responsibilities.
They say death is easy, it’s living that’s hard. I love my life, and I wouldn’t say it was hard. But I understand when they say death is easy, because those people who pass away don’t have to live with the sadness and the pain of losing someone.
There was so many points in this book where I was laughing out loud, that’s always a good thing in my opinion. The funny and the serious... makes a book go from good to excellent for me. This is one hot read and I couldn't put it down. Would highly recommend picking up one of Chantal's books. I've gone straight into the next book in the series.
I really did like this, but in all honesty it read a bit like "Carry on Biker"
However, it was enjoyable and as long as you do not take it so seriously then it is a fun read.
Faye was funny, sarcastic and had a tendency to speak before she thought. I did like her, but at times it felt like that was all she was, all there was too her.
Would have liked more from Dex and more from the actual MC side of things.
However, it had a great cast of secondary characters, who you just hope get their own books - like Arrow for one.
Overall, it was a good read, however, it never got too in depth with anything. A fair few months pass in the book, and a lot happens, but it never got too detailed. It felt almost at times, like reading a list of things that should happen in an MC book.
I found myself wanting more, more about her relationship with her parents, and some closure on that, more from their past history as kids (she is twenty) and though it is mentioned she had a crush on him, he was always too old for her, it never says how old she is, wanted more closure with her ex.
But, overall, it is a non taxing, light enjoyable read that can pass a couple of hours, and leave you wanting to read more of the brothers of the MC.

This story is about Dex and Faye. Dex is not your typical jerk male in a book, he is still very controlling and dominating, but still holds that little adorable touch that softens his bad boy biker image just a tad for us. While Faye, she is on the run. Very much has her own mind and definitely not going down without a fight. Her ex is Dex's brother.. which could make things awkward when you then throw another spanner in the works. Throughout the book you have that inkling that something is not right, and when you find out, its a shocker! Will they sort out their differences and make it? You'll have to read to find out!
If you love biker stories - like me! Then you will definitely want to get this story. It is fast paced, has shocking plot twists and really relatable characters that you love immediately. Hoping for the next installment for this series.. Arrow, hint hint ;)
