Out of the Ashes (Sons of Templar MC #3) by Anne Malcom
Published March 1st 2016
Living a life in darkness causes the soul to char to ash. Battling demons by turning himself into a monster is the only way he can survive…the only way he can keep a grip on sanity. That grip is precarious at best, every day is a silent battle with demons that threaten to yank him into the truest form of darkness, the abyss he’ll never escape. Then it happens. Light shines through the cracks.
Happiness. Mia Spencer’s life is full of it. She has an amazing new job, friends, family, and the light of her life – her daughter Lexie. Running from the demons of the past, escaping a hell that she vowed Lexie would never know about, she worked through hardship and near poverty to create something she was proud of. Buried deep inside, underneath the swell of love she had for her only daughter, were the fractured pieces of her. Pieces that were smashed and battered when she was young and vulnerable.
Then she meets Bull, who seems to hate her on sight. He screams danger, from his huge physique, to his beautiful ink, to the motorcycle club he belongs to. He is silent, his glares threaten to burn her into flames, yet she finds herself falling for him. Finds this broken man slowly fixing the pieces she thought would stay shattered forever.
5 Out of the Ashes Stars on Goodreads
After moving far away from the only family they have Mia and her daughter Lexie find a new life. I so enjoyed their mother-daughter relationship/banter. it entertained me thoroughly!
Mia is funny, caring and Strong heroine. I liked her very much and I felt she was one character that felt truly genuine. Zane has had a huge loss and has shut himself off from getting close to anyone. Until he meets Mia and she snaps something deep within him back on.. He starts to care, not only for Mia but for Lexie as well.
I really enjoyed this story and was hooked from the first chapter. I loved Anne’s secondary characters, as always I think this is what takes a book from good to great.
If you haven’t read this series yet, I’d highly recommend it.
Lexie and Killian’s story will be a must read for me when I get the time.
