A single father
struggles to change for his daughters and the woman he loves in this second
book in the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club series from New York Times
bestselling author Chantal Fernando.
As a single father of two girls and the sergeant at arms for the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club, Jack “Knuckles” Chester doesn’t have much free time. And having earned his road name from his reputation as a fighter, Knuckles isn’t one to back away from a challenge.
But what he'll never admit out loud is that his two daughters have changed him irrevocably, softened him even. And these two girls are the only women who will ever hold his heart forever. That is, until he meets the cousin of another biker’s old
Celina is nothing like the women Knuckles used to date. She’s a journalist for the local
newspaper, dresses well, and basically just has her life together. And the last
thing she wants is to be involved with a Cursed Raven. But when the ripped,
badass biker worms his way into her heart, she has trouble remembering all the
reasons they would never work.
But when a scandal at her newspaper breaks the thin trust she has with Knuckles, will she walk away for good? Or will Knuckles fight to keep Celina in his life?
Knuckle Down is a softer side MC romance novel that delivers a little bit of suspense and a whole lot of family love.
I will be honest and say that I wanted a bit more action from the MC club but that I just a personal preference. While I like the dark and brittle MC romances, I think Knuckle Down and The Cursed Ravens MC Series is the perfect series for readers who prefer lighter reads. You get a bit of the big bad biker on the surface but deep down you get the super sweet and family loving men that I think will appeal to a lot of people looking for a softer romance.
Celina is a strong and independent journalist that has learned to rely on herself and herself only. She hasn’t let a man in for a very long time and has no plans to do so anytime soon. Yet the moment she locked eyes on Knuckles, she knew he was everything she didn’t want but couldn’t stay away from. I really enjoyed watching Knuckles knock that wall down.
Knuckles also knew the moment he saw Celina that she was it for him and he does everything he can to pursue her and make her his. I loved that he didn’t give up and that he made it impossible for her to say know. I thought it was cute and endearing.
Overall, I enjoyed Knuckle Down. If you are looking for a lighter MC romance book then this is the one for you. It’s full of love and family but still has a hint of drama/suspense.
