Wes ‘Stiff’ Collins lived life on the wild side. He worked from the moment he knew what the word meant, always making the best of every situation. There was nothing about his past he would change.
Without a real family except his brother Xander, Stiff joined the Vipers Creed Motorcycle Club, and they taught him what it was to have people he could depend on. When his past crashed into his present, he vowed to protect the club that had always been his steady, even if it meant turning his back on the woman who had given him life.
Chelsea Miller’s life was simple: work, take care of her family, and save for the future. Everything was about having a goal and a plan. However, when her sister ended up battered and bruised on a diner floor, everything she thought was in her past suddenly threatened her future. In a moment, she had a new goal, everything else be damned. She would protect her family … at all costs.
Stiff and Chelsea’s worlds collide in an explosion of determination, strength, and lust. Will they give in to temptation, or will conquering each other be too steep a price? Two people not afraid to put in the work will either overcome everything in their paths or finally crumble under life’s troubles they can’t escape, all in the name of family.

“I’d wait until she’s coherent enough and have her contact the school or teachers to let them know there has been a family emergency and she had to come home. They don’t need to know anything else. Most colleges will accept this and either have her make up the work or do it online.” He chuckled. “In my day, we didn’t have ‘online.’ Now you can buy anything and do anything on the internet. It’s crazy.”
Maybe if I weren’t so upset about seeing my sister like this, I would have found it funny, too. Unfortunately, I didn’t see the humor; I only saw her pain. I wished I could take it away and put it on me, instead.
Needles shook a bottle, and my eyes went to it.
“Pain pills.” He gave me instructions on how and what to do for her then told me he would be back in the morning to check on her.
I liked him but wished I knew him better. He was nice and had taken good care of my sister, so that put him in the winning category for me.
Once he left, I gripped Jennifer’s hand and let the tears flow. I let each one cascade down my cheek and splash to the floor. Then the tears turned into sobs. I couldn’t stop them. I let myself feel the pain for my sister, every single moment of it. I allowed my strength to slowly dissipate, letting the grief take over.
Being so lost in thought, I didn’t hear the door open and shut. As a result, I screamed when a large hand gripped my shoulder, only to look up into ocean blue eyes. Stiff.
I didn’t know what I was doing and didn’t care. I rose up and fell into his arms, soaking his shirt with my continued tears. He wrapped his arms tightly around my
body, cocooning me. I had never felt safer in my life.
