Cameron Davies has the job she’s always wanted—designing custom motorcycles at Fast & Fury. No way is she going to screw this up. But when her wild, sexy one-night stand ends up being the shop’s new VIP client, her life is suddenly turned on its head.
Orion Stenton radiates power, danger and, most of all, sex. His lavish lifestyle is fraught with dangers for Cam—and a far too intimate link to her past. She has to keep things professional, but it’s impossible to forget the feel of him or the way he whispers her name.
The connection between them demands far more than a quick fling. But when Cam’s past puts Orion in danger, she must face her demons if she’s going to save them both.
Cam’s character definitely caught my attention in the first book in the Fast & Fury series, Custom Built. I was happy to find out that she was going to get her own story and Custom Made did not disappoint.
Cam was a very talented and creative young woman and loved her job, along with the people she worked with. It was very much like a found family to her. Sharing the loss of someone close to her with Bronte just made those bonds stronger. Life was good and so soon after that loss, she definitely wasn’t looking for love, but sometimes Fate has other plans.
I wasn’t exactly impressed with the way that the relationship between Orion and Cam started – and neither was Cam. Orion eventually won Cam over, but it took a while. That time gave readers a chance to get to know both characters better. The attraction between the two of them was hard to ignore and Orion was determined to gain Cam’s trust – and more.
Cam thought she had left her past behind. When it creeps back in her main goal is to keep everyone around her safe. She soon finds out that the “family” she’s surrounded herself with is more than capable of taking care of themselves and everyone they care about. The lines between “good” and “bad” are more than a little blurred, but the Knights have their own sense of justice and if you mess with one of them, you mess with them all. Orion has that same kind of loyalty.
It’s that sense of loyalty, protection and family that keeps me coming back. There’s also plenty of heat, danger, action and mystery – everything I love in a good story. Another thing I like about both the Knights of Fury and Fast & Fury is that the female lead characters aren’t just “damsels in distress” – they are as protective of those that they love as those who are trying to protect them. They’re also smart and know when to not take unnecessary risks.
Although it’s not necessary to read Chantal Fernando’s Knights of Fury series before starting Fast & Fury, the ties between the two series aren’t loose at all. This series is almost a continuation of the first. The difference is that it takes place in the motorcycle shop that is owned by the club. Not a big deal and it probably won’t be noticed unless you’ve already been introduced to the Knights of Fury. It’s just worth mentioning because a lot of the characters from Knights of Fury show up from time to time – and in my opinion, they’re worth getting to know better. 😉
