Charge: Steel Bones Motorcycle Club Series, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
I can't even imagine what I'd do with a man like him. He wants no part of a girl like me. So how come he can't stay away, and I can't stop thinking what if?
Kayla: Life isn't easy. Single mom, minimum wage, family drama. You know the story. I've come a long way in a short time, though, and it's all worth it. For Jimmy. My grumpy little guy.
Then a hot biker charms his way into our lives, tempting me into wanting more. I want to go for it, but how can I trust myself when I've screwed up so badly in the past?
Charge: I'm an easy kind of guy in a rough world. Yeah, I got a record, but I also got my club, my ride, and the open road. Life is good.
I don't need no hassle, and from recent experience, "woman" is the very definition. I sure don't need to be messin' with a girl young enough to get carded, cartin' along a six-year-old.
So why is she livin' all up in my head? And how am I gonna stop my past from screwin' up this good thing?

Charge is the laid back best friend to the MC President and his ex-long term partner is his best friend’s older sister. A few months ago she kicked him out of their fancy house (she’s a lawyer) and since then he’s been splitting his time between the clubhouse and his Pops’ house. He’s 30 years old and living out of boxes.
At this point I have to say how much I love Pops. He’s in a wheelchair having lost both his legs (at different times) and he’s the sweetest natured guy. He’s also hilarious and just says what he thinks. He and Charge have the best relationship.
Kayla moves into the apartment building next door to Pops. She’s 21 years old with a 6 year old son, Jimmy, and emotionally abusive parents. They have money but Kayla is struggling financially.
Of course this odd couple end up being attracted to each other but there is an awful lot of baggage to sort through first. Kayla’s problems with her parents and Charge’s problems at the MC and worry over his Pops taking his medication on time, not to mention the different worlds they come from, are all things that they struggle with.
This is not just a good girl/bad boy age gap romance, it’s about them as individuals and their own problems. It’s also about a little boy learning to make friends. Jimmy is a key part to this story and I love that he’s not a cute kid. He’s grumpy and wary of strangers, gets into fights, struggles in class and is fiercely protective of his mother. He’s an awesome character as so often kids are simply one dimensional ‘cute’ and don’t have their own personalities, they are just plot constructs. This author doesn’t make that mistake and I love that.
This is a good start to an MC series and I look forward to reading the rest of it, as the romance part of this book has a HEA, the MC part of the story doesn’t.
The villains (Vern and Victoria) were absolutely awful and I was just waiting for Kayla to grow a backbone and I’m so glad she did when it mattered.
I’m a bit disappointed that the author went with the cliche of “drop-outs bikers who can’t speak proper English” (at least I hope that’s what it was otherwise the book needs some editing) which made for a bit of a challenge while reading but all in all I enjoyed the story and the characters dynamics.
There’s a lot left unsaid but a lot of potential for the series.
The Hero is pretty rough and crude when he is thinking of women.
The heroine is a single mum with a tragic story.
There is some ex drama.
Hero pushing away at first.
I wasn't keen on the Hero reminiscing about his ex all the time, including thinking of when he used to have sex with her and what that felt like even after he has met and is attracted to the heroine.
HFN. I imagine we will see the couples HEA through other books in the series.
