Last Mile

I tried to read this one slowly because I did not want this series to end. I am surprised at how much I liked all of them.

Last Mile (Vicious Cycle #3) - Katie Ashley

After her father was murdered in the line of duty, ATF agent Samantha Vargas is determined to take down the scumbags of the drug trade. When her partner takes on a case to infiltrate the Hells Raiders MC, Samantha agrees to go undercover as his old lady but is surprised to find herself drawn to the very man she is investigating.

Benjamin “Bishop” Malloy has worked hard to carve a place for himself both in and out of the MC world. Working days as a mechanic, he spends his nights rebuilding motorcycles with the hope of one day owning his own shop. After taking one of the club’s new hang-arounds under his wing, Bishop is conflicted over his growing attraction for the man’s girlfriend.

Even though she’s determined to bring down the Raiders, Samantha discovers their world isn’t as black-and-white as she thought. And as the stakes grow higher, she’s in danger of losing more than her heart.

Every one of these books begins with some heart wrenching set up so you know why the characters are the way they are, the difference in this one is it actually starts with Sam, not Bishop. We know right away Sam doesn't like bikers (with good reason) so the fact she is able and willing to go undercover and assimilate into a MC is kind of a big deal for her personally. She isn't alone though, she goes in with her gay best friend/partner Gavin who poses as her boyfriend. Things don't go as planned and all at once Sam finds herself on this mission alone. Before she can dig the dirt on the MC, Sam learns that they actually are going legitimate, that Bishop isn't the bad guy she assumed he was, and that she is in far deeper than she wanted to be. It all comes to head when the MC gets raided on an anonymous tip, evidence is planted, and Sam finds herself trying to exonerate the MC. 

Alright, this books is fairly action packed, we see more deaths and almost deaths. Sam is... she's tough to like, if I'm being honest. Overall? This was my least favorite of the three books but it's still good enough to be 4/5 stars. I was so impressed with this new to me author that I already have some of her other books on my Christmas wish list. She's my author to watch. If you're looking for a Christmas gift for the reader in your life that likes bad boy romance, this would be a great option.
