Ice (Regulators MC #1) by Chelsea Camaron & Jessie Lane
Published: December 5, 2014
She’s an investment banker.
He’s an outlaw biker.
A little bit of heaven is about to meet a whole lot of hell.
Morgan Powell was raised to be perfect, to set an example for her sisters to follow. Her life has been dedicated to making something of her career, so she wouldn’t know what to do with a man even if you gave her an instruction manual.
Brett ‘Ice’ Grady spends his days trying to keep up with his teenage daughter, his nights consumed in Regulators’ MC business. He has no time for anything more than a casual hookup.
Two worlds collide when the dangers of his life crash into the calm of hers.
Can she go beyond her own boundaries and chip her way through to the man known to be as cold as ice?
**Hotness Rating 3 out of 5**
I read a lot of books, so I can confidently say that Ice by Chelsea Camaron and Jessie Lane is by far one of the best books I’ve had the privilege of reading in 2014. I don’t give 5 star ratings freely, but rating this book 5 stars is a no-brainer. Ice is the first book of the Regulators MC series and if the rest of the series is even a quarter as good as Ice this will be one awesome ride.
What makes Ice different than all of the other MC books out there? In my opinion it’s the depth. The characters are well developed and complex. The story is basically a story within a story. Just when you think you are dealing with the typical motorcycle club you find that you couldn’t be more wrong. Just when you think you know the man that Ice is you catch a glimpse of the real Ice. And just when you think you have read them all when it comes to MC books you read Ice and see how wrong you are.
Brett “Ice” Grady had a teenage wife and a new baby that needed to be cared for. So, he did what any good man would do he did whatever he could to support his family. In his case, he joined the military and did all he could to make his family proud. Then fate struck a cruel hand and he was left a single father with an infant daughter. Again, he did what he does best he stepped up and made the best of what he had to work with. Fast forward several years and he’s the president of an MC, running a strip club and raising a teenage daughter. He knows the bad that the world tries to hide and he’ll stop at nothing to keep Brooke safe and keep the crime as far away from his territory as possible.
Morgan Powell was raised to be the perfect daughter. She worked so hard to make her parents happy that she never had the chance to discover who “she” really was. Sadly, her younger sister has learned what happens when you don’t measure up. Kicked out and literally erased from their lives she turns to Morgan for help and a place to live. Morgan wants to be there for Madyson and give her the unconditional love that she herself never got. But, playing the wild teenager is causing Morgan more trouble than she is prepared to deal with. Madyson’s sneaking out and running wild is a pain in itself, but she’s including her best friend Brooke in her antics which brings a very hot, scary, and judgmental Ice to her doorstep one too many times.
When Madyson doesn’t come home one night Morgan exhausts every avenue to find her, but no one will help her. The police say they are doing all they can, but don’t seem to be doing anything really. Their parents don’t care. As far as they are concerned they don’t have a daughter named Madyson. With no other options Morgan is forced to accept help from Ice and the Regulators MC. What follows is an emotionally charged roller coaster that is sure to bring tears to your eyes and make your heart beat out of your chest.
Seriously, this book is a must read. I am all about MC books these days. I read them for the sexy, badass attitudes and the free living fun. When I pick up an MC book I am not counting on substance. You’ll get both with this book. I can not wait to read more about these awesome characters and more from these amazing authors.
