Overview

In this gritty, fast-paced debut thriller, an ex-con biker chick turned law-abiding citizen risks everything to save her new life—and confront the demons of her past.
 
Shea Stevens is biker royalty. Her father was the president of the Confederate Thunder Motorcycle Club. Under his watchful eye, she learned how to pick locks, disable alarms, and hot-wire cars like a pro. But all that is ancient history. Or so she thought . . .
 
After a stint in prison, Shea has worked hard to make a quiet, happy life for herself in Arizona. She spends her time bonding with her big-city girlfriend and running her bike shop, Iron Goddess Custom Cycles, with her dedicated team of misfits. But when one of her employees is shot and three of her specially commissioned bikes are stolen, Shea’s new life collides with the criminal underworld she tried to leave behind.
 
Shea knows better than to trust the police. So, with her Glock on her hip, she takes the investigation into her own hands. Shea’s search for the bike thieves leads her straight to her father’s old gang—and her estranged sister, whose young daughter has been kidnapped by a rival club. The last thing Shea wants is to be caught in the middle of a war—but if she learned one thing from her old man, it’s that when someone comes at you, you push back. Hard. And that’s exactly what she’s going to do.

A fun premise and interesting story in a hometown venue that founders with weak and cliche characters.

Despite using every cliché and stereotype about biker gangs, this is a great book. The people in play are fashioned in depth, and the reader finds themselves rooting for people they probably wouldn't like in person. The story-telling is done so well that the characters become endearing and the plot develops in a way that holds the reader's interest. Many bad things happen, starting from the very beginning when Shea finds a young employee shot and bleeding in her motorcycle building shop. Kelleher has the unique ability to create flawed people, put them in extreme situations, and make you like them. If you want something off-beat but engrossing, this is the book for you.

This is a fast paced thriller in which Shea, and ex-con, is working hard at making an honest living at making custom motorcycles for women. I had never actually thought about the need for women to need bikes sized differently, so I found this part of the novel interesting. Unfortunately for Shea, her shop is robbed of a group of very high profile bikes. Their loss could destroy her business, so she reaches out to her old contacts to try and recover them. What follows is a very fast paced tale that drags her back into the criminal world of motorcycle clubs. This is not a cleaned up sexy MC story, but a very gritty and harsh novel that shows the horrors that can occur. At a point in the novel, the violence and murders were almost unending - for me, it was almost too much. I really liked how Shea has "adopted strays" - people that have complicated pasts and that don't fit neatly into society. Additionally, while Shea is in a monogamous relationship with her girlfriend, the affection scenes were written with a light touch that I appreciated. I am looking forward to future works by this author and think she is an author to watch.
