Briella’s life has never been perfect, but she’s always been exactly where she wanted to be. When her mother marries into the King’s Descendants Motorcycle Club, everything she thought she knew is about to change. A world she didn’t even know existed is going to consume her.
Her new step brother and friend, Alarick, is the only thing that keeps her sane as she begins to learn that the life she knew and trusted, and the life she’s now living, are two very different things. As she discovers the club, and all the dangers it holds, she finds herself tangled in a world she can’t even begin to comprehend.
It’s dangerous. It scares her.
He’s dangerous. He scares her.
Their love will become toxic. Their hearts will become entangled.
Everything about him will make her question herself.
When tragedy strikes, Briella knows she needs to run. Needing freedom and time away from the pain more than she needs anything else, she leaves her family behind, she leaves him behind, and starts her life anew. However, like all good things, an end is in sight to her new found freedom and she’s forced to go back home to the place she vowed never to return.
A place where Alarick is now President.
A place where her sister is now missing.
A place where so much pain hides in the darkest of corners.
A place where secrets and lies fill all the broken gaps and happiness is a deadly trap.
A place where he does not want her.
Briella will return with her own secrets.
She will have to face the man she ran from.
She will discover everything she thought she knew was a lie.
She will enter a world that is so much darker than she remembers.
She will go back to where it all began, to the King’s Descendants Motorcycle Club.
I started Alarick about an hour before I had to be somewhere and I did not want to put it down. There is so much potential in this series that I am super excited for. Alarick is the perfect starter for a new MC series.
First of all, the story is told between the past and the present, which sometimes can be difficult to follow but I thought Jewel did it right. I will admit that sometimes I felt like there might have been more of the past than needed but in the end, it set up everything the way it should have been.
I love the family vibe from this book but I’m hoping to get a bit more bad boys from the guys. Now that we are left hanging, I see some real potential with it.
Overall, I enjoyed Alarick and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a lighter side of a MC series.
