Title: Exquisite Danger
For the first time in my life I know what it’s like to be completely and truly adored by a man who loves me for exactly who I am, a high functioning autistic with more personality quirks than there are stars in the Texas Hill Country night sky.
Some people think my boyfriend, Smoke, is a total biker psycho, a natural born killer who will destroy anyone who threatens what he considers his. They wouldn’t be wrong, but he’s so much more than that. He’s my dark salvation, my beloved fallen angel who is trying with all of his wicked heart to save me from what seems like an entire world bent on either killing me or a fate worse than death.
We’re headed to the Denver, Colorado chapter of the Iron Horse MC, chasing after my narcissistic, junkie mother who decided to steal from some very bad men leaving her two daughters behind to pay the price for her betrayal. My twin sister, Sarah, old lady to the Iron Horse MC president, is looking for my mother as well, but Sarah’s gone rogue and has no one to guard her back which worries me deeply. To further complicate matters, there are traitors in the Iron Horse MC who are working with my mother, not only helping her to escape but also informing my enemies of my every move.
The odds are stacked against me, but I will do whatever is necessary to protect those I love, and with Smoke at my side, I just might make it out of this mess alive

Exquisite Danger is the second book in the Iron Horse MC series and picks up with Swan and Smoke right where the first book left off. If you haven’t read the first book I suggest that you read it first since they are about the same couple and will make the most sense read in order. However this was a good book on its own.
The first book focused a lot on Swan and Smoke getting to know one another and figuring out how to handle the feelings they stirred up, as well as all the club drama. This book focuses more on Swan and Smoke as a couple. There is a lot more sex, kinky and sweet, in this book and some of it I could do without. It did get a little repetitive and I wanted the plot to just move on but overall I still really enjoyed this story.
We are introduced to several new characters but we still get so see characters from previous the book. I’m not going to drop any spoilers but while Swan and Smoke’s story is pretty much tied up at the end, there are still many threads left hanging. There is still a traitor that hasn’t been caught, Swan’s best friend has some drama going in her life as do several of Smoke’s MC friends. There is still a lot to learn about this club and this is going to be a great series with lots of twists and turns.
I did enjoy this book but it is a bit darker than I like to read. The MC is violent and not completely legal. There are questionable activities aplenty happening and morals aren’t necessarily a high priority. But these characters, while they dont’ have traditional morals or beliefs, still have their own code and they stick to it. As with many MC books the club is first and the women are second class citizens. But even with that, characters like Smoke, Beach, Breaker, ect still manage to find that balance and have strong relationships that are interesting to read about.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series that is about Sarah, Swan’s twin. Since Sarah and Beach are already hooked up in Swans book, we will go back to when they first met (and hopefully learn what the inside jokes Smoke would make to Sarah mean) and how she helped Swan and Smoke in their books as well.
