Love blossoms in the most unexpected of places in this sweet and steamy Cursed Ravens Motorcyle Club title featuring a hunky bad boy and a charming nurse.
The men might tease Rogue and call him pretty behind his back, but no one is going to say that to his face. As the vice president of the Cursed Ravens—and with an unpredictable and unruly temper—respect is given to him at any cost.
But Rogue reins himself in when he visits his mother in a local nursing home. Overwhelmed with guilt that he can’t take care of her himself, he can barely handle watching her fade away with dementia. And he knows the staff is exceptional—especially the sweet and beautiful caregiver who pays extra attention to his mom.
It isn’t easy working at a nursing home, but Zoe enjoys spending time with her favorite patient Anne. She knows Anne has a son who dutifully visits her, but when Zoe sees the tall, muscled, handsome stranger, she can tell he’s trouble—beautiful trouble. She knows he’s a Cursed Raven and she knows better than to admit she’s attracted to him. There’s no way she'll date an MC member. Been there done that. But as Zoe and Rogue start to get closer, they realize one way or another, they’ll have to fight to stay in each other’s lives.
Going Rogue is book 3 in the Cursed Ravens MC series but you can read it as a stand alone. The couples from the previous two books appear, but you don’t HAVE to know their stories to enjoy Rogue and Zoe.
Zoe works as a caregiver for the elderly and its through her job she meets Rogue, the son of her favorite patient, Mrs. K. Rogue and Zoe strike up an odd friendship of sorts which develops into a relationship. Things aren’t easy though-Rogue is part of an MC club that isn’t exactly 100% on the up and up and Zoe has been burned by a biker in the past. Also, Rogue was a man whore. However, these two tackle most of their struggles head on and I appreciated the maturity of that.
There is one plot point involving the MC Club and some trouble they find themselves in. While the immediate issue is ‘resolved’ the author kind of glossed over why it all happened. Maybe she is planning more books in the future that will address this event. But, for me, it felt like it was just there to add more pages to the book and it wasn’t really explained well.
The major climax of the book is heartbreaking. I felt for Zoe and Rogue both. I could sympathize with both their view points and wouldn’t want to be in either of their shoes. It was sad!
Overall, Going Rogue was satisfying addition to the series! I enjoyed both Zoe and Rogue; getting more of this crazy MC club was great as well. I hope that at some point Fernando writes a book for Vanessa-even if its not part of this series, it would be hilarious to get her story! She is a hoot!
