Review: Playing with Monsters

For this review, I chose Playing with Monsters by Layla Wolfe.  This is book #4 in the Bare Bones series, but it is also a stand alone book.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Roman Serpico has abandoned a thriving rock star career to prospect for The Bare Bones MC. His goal: revenge on the cartel for his father’s murder. His black soul is a writhing mass of venom and rage, and joining the club fuels his ability to wreak havoc. His stepfather, the club’s lawyer Slushy, calls on him to save a stepsister Roman barely knows. Nurse’s assistant Gudrun McGill has fallen in with a bad crowd and needs an emergency extrication…now.

Roman believes he’s killed Gudrun’s assailant, but the loathsome, murderous fugitive Riker has nine lives. He lives to traffic in human flesh another day, and Roman is hell-bent on tracking the bastard down. But The Bare Bones votes to place Gudrun into custody with her stepbrother as her bodyguard. Things heat up between them when they hide in plain sight in the ghost town that surrounds The Citadel, their clubhouse.

Roman has vowed celibacy to fixate on vengeance. Gudrun wants nothing to do with men after losing her husband in a horrific car crash.

The terror of their situation brings them too close for comfort. Walls must come down. Barriers must be broken. Taking risks is in the nature of their new MC family. Roman has to roll the dice, to hit fast against Riker and the Chinese cartel. To preserve his newfound family, he has to roll like thunder and be gone like smoke

All Roman wants to revenge for his father's death.  His heart is full of evil and blackness.  I do not know what I would do if I was Gudrun and having lost my husband.  I wanted to know about Roman and what he would do to revenge his father's death.  What lengths he would take?  I also wanted to know about Gundrun.  How does to recover from the death of her husband?  Will she be able to move on?  Will she be able to find love again?

This is not my usual type of reading, but I like to read a lot of books and I wondered how this book would end so I had to read it.  

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
