From USA Today best selling author Scarlett Cole, writing as S. Cole, comes an electrifying MC, forbidden lovers romance.
Iris:As a woman born into an Irish crime family, I'm expendable.It's why I've extricated myself from that life.Only now, I'm wrapped up in another one when I witness the death of the president of a motorcycle outlaw club.And the club's sergeant at arms has declared himself as my protector... Or stalker.And I can't decide if he terrifies or excites me.
Spark:Too many people have died on my watch in Kabul and New Jersey.My conscience can't carry the weight of one more. Especially a pretty young thing with eyes that pierce my truths.But her family is our enemy. One of many.And she hates the things I pride myself in standing for.Until she needs me to play her family's deadly game. A game to ruin us all.

The Games We Play is the next book in the Iron Outlaws MC series by S. Cole. I loved book 1 and was excited to get Spark’s book. Iris is a great heroine because she grew up exposed to crime as the niece of an Irish mobster, but still wanted better for herself and her siblings. She is independent, but still needs her uncle to provide care for her younger brother who is Autistic. If she had the means to take care of him, she would, but because he needs significant care, she has to rely on her uncle.

Spark has some pretty serious PTSD that he isn’t dealing with. He feels an instant connection with Iris and begins, for all intents and purposes, stalking her. She isn’t sure what to do with this because she knows his lifestyle is just as dangerous as the mob. But, there is a connection between them even Iris can’t deny. Their relationship is unconventional, but so is their life. While Iris doesn’t want to rely on anyone, she realizes that Spark isn’t going to use and manipulate her like her uncle. Also, Spark is a dirty boy!! So, be prepared for some kinky sex!

Overall, this was another good story in this series! I am excited to continue!
