Curly (Hell’s Handlers MC Florida Chapter #1)
by Lilly Atlas
Travis Bryant, known in the biker world as Curly, spent thirteen hard years behind bars for a heinous crime he didn’t commit. When the truth finally sets him free, nothing remains of his previous life. Curly doesn’t know how to live without the brotherhood of a club. After visiting the Hell’s Handler’s MC, he’s given the go ahead to open a charter in his home state. Claiming an ol’ lady is the furthest thing from his mind until he meets Brooke, the beautiful, hardheaded, dog trainer bent on ending a violent dog fighting ring near her home.
After ten long years married to an abusive narcissist, Brooke vowed she’d never live under another man’s thumb again. Accepting help doesn’t come easy, but when abandoned dogs begin popping up with fatal injuries, she’ll do anything to put an end to the fighting ring responsible. Even enlist the assistance of the most attractive man she’s ever met, and his outlaw MC brothers.
From her feisty, independent spirit to her shapely legs, Brooke appeals to Curly on every level. He can’t keep himself away, but he’s been burned before, and has no plans to tie himself to a woman. Brooke is in the same boat, having promised herself no man would ever have control over her life again. Unfortunately, she can’t kick the curly-haired man in the biker boots out of her head or her bed.
As Brooke and Curly grow closer and danger strikes, will they be able to overcome their past traumas and find strength in each other? Or will they remain stubborn and stick to their guns as their lives crash and burn?
4 Curly Stars
Curly is the first book in the Hell’s Handlers MC Florida Chapter series by Lilly Atlas. I made a little mistake and started with this series first before starting the original series.. My bad but it doesn’t matter you don’t have to read them to keep up.
Curly is out of prison after 13 years for a crime he didn’t commit. He’s set to start his own chapter in his home town. A town he thought he’d never return too. With that in mind he hasn’t got time for relationships or love nor does he want any of this in his life.
Brooke has had a hard life, after years in an abusive marriage she will never rely on a man for anything. She can do it all herself. When she meets Curly she doesn’t except to feel things she hasn’t felt in years. He has awoken things in her that she thought where long dead.
“I have a passion for rescuing abused and neglected animals because I know what it means to be one.”
While both try to uncover a dog fighting ring they grow closer and the sparks that fly from these two are of the charts and I couldn’t put this book down. I loved both characters and all the secondary characters. As this is the first in the series we have a load of new faces and characters to get to know and it was very enjoyable. I really hope there is more in this series, soon. One little thing annoyed me and that was the author called on of the characters by the wrong name a few times towards the end. Editing is not something I generally care too much as long as the mistakes are few and far between but this was a big things in my opinion.
“I will never block the light that shines from you because basking in that light is where I belong.”
I will now go back and read the Hell’s Handler series from Lilly.
