I received a copy of Fallon from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Presidents of rival MCs, Fallon and Danny were destined to hate each other. And hate they did. Until an unknown enemy forces them together, and makes them realize that under all that hate was an undeniable passion. One that could threaten not only the trust and respect of their clubs… but their very lives…
I’ve only read a handful of books in the Henchmen MC universe, along with the first three books in the Henchmen MC – Next Generation series, so I’m still piecing a lot of the stories and relationships together, but I’m really enjoying the Next Gen books and characters so far.
Fallon has taken over duties as President of the Henchmen MC from his father, Reign, and this book details his relationship with Danny, the female President of a rival motorcycle club, the Vultures. Their relationship can be described as rocky (at best), with Fallon still harbouring resentment over Danny having kidnapped his father shortly after her club arrived in town. However, when they’re both attacked while exiting a bar in town, they end up holed up together and they can’t deny their sexual chemistry – which causes problems for Danny when her club find out.
Everyone knows I’m a sucker for an enemies-to-lovers romance and that’s exactly what you get in this book. Fallon and Danny have been enemies for a while now and that’s not something easily forgotten. Despite their sexual chemistry, and grudging like of one another, there’s a lot at stake for both of them, although it’s Danny who pays the price for it being a female leader in a traditionally male-dominated role.
I’ve always been intrigued by Danny as a character when she’s popped up in previous books. Tough as nails and determined to succeed are two of her qualities and while they’ve served her well, in many ways, they’ve also prevented her from finding what makes her happy. She’s had to fight her entire life to be treated with respect and she finds it hard to accept that she could have that respect from Fallon. She struggles a lot through the book, and at times it was hard to read because it’s confronting (and not a little depressing) how women can be treated. I was pleased that she found her feet and stood her ground in the face of her adversity, and that she was able to recognise the people in her life who were toxic and unhealthy, and those who respected her and wanted her to succeed.
I’m definitely looking forward to the next instalment of the series.
