I’ve known fear.
I’ve known pain.
I’ve known horror.
I’ve known all of it.
I’ve guarded myself as best I can.
I’ve hidden myself from him.
I’ve changed my name.
But he still haunts me.
One day, I’m sure he’ll find me again.
I don’t trust anybody.
I don’t believe in anybody.
I just want to be free.
Until I meet Jack.
I’m not looking for him, but that’s the thing about heroes.
You’re never looking for them.
He won’t take no for an answer.
He’ll battle past my fear, my pain, and my horror.
He’ll sweep into my life like a hurricane, and it won’t matter how hard I fight.
He’ll break past my walls.
And he’ll change me.
Maybe, he’ll even save me.
Valiant is the second book that follows the new generation of the Joker’s Wrath members. I have to be honest and say that I’m kind of all over the place. The first one was a bit of a struggle for me and I honestly thought about not going any further. However, I’m a huge Bella Jewel fan and I just couldn’t pass this one up. I’m glad that I gave it another shot because I actually enjoyed this story. I would have missed out on one of the sweetest guys ever.
When Jack meets Baylee and he comes off cocky and so self confident, I knew I was a going to fall for him. He chases Baylee with that confidence and uses his charm that creates a slow burn. What I didn’t expect was just how sweet he was. I’m pretty sure that I melted at everything he ever said to Baylee.
“Show me, because I want to show you, here and how, there is nothing you can show me, or tell me, that’ll ever make me think you’re not the most incredible, beautiful, woman I’ve ever met.”
Seriously? He’s just so swoon worthy. At first I thought that it might bother me because he most certainly isn’t your typical biker. I like them raw and gritty so I was shocked to see how much I enjoyed the softer, sweet guy. I think it just worked with Baylee.
I think some people might get annoyed with Baylee but I felt for her. Her past was horrific and she’s battling her own demons right now. Just trying to survive. Jack comes into her life at the perfect time.
I did like that we get more of the original men and get some face time with Mack, Maddox and some of the other men and women. I’m glad that we still get pieces of them, because they are ultimately what makes up this series and will always have a special place for those of us that have been there from the start.
Overall, I enjoyed this one. If you are looking for a lighter MC book with one of the biggest swoon worthy sweethearts, then this just might be the book for you.
