Five years. That’s a long time to go without talking to somebody, especially someone who was such a huge part of your life…
A letter from my first kiss and my childhood everything…from prison.
He may be nicknamed Saint, but this sweet, sexy biker most definitely has a wild streak. Hearing from him draws me right back into the Knights of Fury motorcycle club—the people I’ll always think of as family.
He’s still the only man I’ve ever wanted.
Each good, old-fashioned letter from my “prison pen pal” has my heart racing. Which is nothing compared to how I feel when Saint surprises me in person, as a free man.
I was just a kid the last time we saw each other, but the connection between us now is anything but innocent.
He’s the type of man who would do anything to protect his woman. And with my world crashing down around me, that’s exactly what I’m going to need.
Ex-con and a friends to lovers collide in Saint, book 1 of Knights of Fury! I enjoy Fernando’s books because they are steamy and quick which fits in perfectly with my summer reading desires! Also, if you are a fan of age gap romances, Saint is a great pick!
Skylar and Saint were super close once. Now, he’s writing to her from prison. She used to spend tons of time with the MC until her mom took her away and her life changed. I enjoyed seeing the relationship build with the letters. It was a unique way to set up the background of these characters and progress forward in the present. Fernando does steamy well too, so the build up to that was delicious as well! Skylar was a great character-she isn’t overly sassy or stubborn. She is simply doing what she has to do to get by in life. She can be sassy, but she isn’t all the time. I get irritated with heroines who are nothing but sassy. Sometimes, I like a girl who is reserved or quiet or demure.
Of course, there is drama (its an MC so you know it can’t all be smooth sailing), but I appreciated that the drama wasn’t due to miscommunication between the H and h. Seriously, that is the most annoying trope ever and I’m so over it. Thankfully, Saint doesn’t take that route. My biggest issue was a common theme for me in Fernando’s books: some points seem rushed or glossed over. I enjoy short reads, but I don’t want a book to be short at the expense of the plot. Saint is still a great story with lots of reasons to love it and the brevity of some of the plot points is minor.
