I’ve read all of the SBMC, and absolutely enjoyed them, and waited patiently for this last instalment to drop. This is the story of opposites attracting, a big, loud, bombastic man who is surrounded by people and friends, who has dedicated the past many years to bringing down the people behind the clubs tragic past, falling for a tiny woman who only has one other friend. Dina is on the spectrum, and is sequestered away on her family’s farm, protected by that isolation. Or so they think. Dina is fiercely loyal and on the hunt for justice for Rory her friend. The two probably would not have met if not for circumstance and need. Once they do meet, Heavy and Dina find themselves at peace in each other’s presence, the connection they have is quite quite beautiful. Heavy is able to Both are willing & determined to go to any lengths to help their friends and family seek justice. I loved Heavy, I read it and listened to the playlist, but somehow I have that old song He ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother, as an ear worm stuck in my brain. This is a book well worth reading, well done Cate C Wells, looking forward to one clicking your next offering (please, think about Harper and Knocker)😁😃
I have loved the Steel Bones MC series and this book was no different. Heavy is the Prez of the Steel Bones MC and also the CEO of Steel Bones Construction and he has his hands full. So when Wall’s sister, Dina, needs Heavy’s help getting rid of a body of a man she killed things take off from there.
Oh, yeah things like this just made this series so good. Do yourself a favor and read all of the books in this series because they are so worth it!
I wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I did. I went into this book blind, with no idea of storyline or plot. By the end of the second chapter I was fully engaged and almost finished it in one sitting. I loved the fmc and throughly enjoyed watching her bedazzled and bewilder Heavy. This was enjoyable, with a great amount of heat Looking forward to reading more
Heavy was a fantastic change to what I'm used to by this author. Many boundaries were pushed and we got served up an unconventional romance at its best. A lead who is neurodivergent and a hero who is a little ugly, a whole lot genius and perfectly suited to his girl. Where I am used to this author writing slow burn romances, I was so pleased with the spicy turn of events. The entire time my heart felt light.
Propositioning the president of a MC Club isn't the smartest decision, but Dina's way of thinking isn't exactly traditional. And it's not sex she's after. No she just needs somebody to bury a body for her. All good in theory, until Dina's demand creates way more strings than anticipated.
Heavy is hardened and disillusioned. Carrying the burdens of the club on his shoulders, he does not want to deal with a pint sized woman who has information that could tear everything he's built to the ground. He has no idea what to do with Dina, especially because he's oddly attracted to her and all her idiosyncrasies. So he proposes something crazier.
In a million years you would never think this relationship could work. I mean there are so many differing contrasts between Heavy and Dina. Yet every time they're in each other's bubble, the world melts away and you believe. There were so many kooky and delightful moments, I was bursting at the seams. My romantic heart was having a meltdown. And the sex, it was awkwardly divine. Yep you read that correctly.
This girl does not belong in Heavy's world, but to be fair Dina struggles to belong anywhere. But somehow they both contribute something very vital to each other. This story is certainly gritty in parts, but their extraordinary connection eclipsed everything else for me, in the best way.
Do yourselves a favour. If you feel you don't want to invest your time in a full MC series, read Heavy in the way I have as it crosses over two of this author's series which are interconnected and it's been awesome. In order to read them:
🔗 Wall (Steel Bones MC) 🔗 Hitting the Wall 🔗 Heavy (Steel Bones MC) 🔗 Against a Wall (less)
This is seriously one of my favourite stories ever. I adored these characters and the way they fell for each other. They were so perfectly imperfect and that made them fit together like puzzle pieces. Dina is one of the best heroines I’ve ever read. Definitely recommend
This book is part of a continuing series. This book also refers to another book “Hitting The Wall”, which contains the MFC and her family and the situation she finds herself in. You may be able to get away with not reading the other books in the series or even Hitting The Wall, but it will leave you with big gaps in your understanding of the characters and their histories.
Dina’s only friend was attacked by her uncle, so she ran away. Dina’s family don’t seem to acknowledge the damage that her uncle has done to her friend and her family as her friend wasn’t the only person he hurt. Deciding that she needs to end all possibility of her uncle ever hurting her friend or anyone else again she decides to kill him. She believes that the best way to get away with this murder is to involve the Steel Bones MC who have experience is disposing of bodies.
Heavy is the President of the Steel Bones MC and he looks like a man mountain and a thug, when in actual fact he is a genius. His mental acuity has kept his club safe and profitable since he took over in a very difficult climate. Heavy has one obsession, making the men who destroyed his club and cost his brother his undamaged brain pay for their actions. However, he needs proof.
When Dina, an accomplished hacker, tells him she can provide that proof in exchange for help in disposing of her uncle’s body, he is in too minds of whether to kill her for exposing all the club secrets in her endeavours to find a way to obtain his help, or taking her to bed. His sister provides the solution in spousal privilege and they head off to Vegas to get hitched.
The relationship between these two main characters is a beautiful thing. Heavy is brilliant and has remained unchallenged by all the women of his acquaintance. Dina is the first person to actually interest him mentally as well physically, despite her not being his usual type. Dina is neurodivergent, which means Heavy never knows how she is going to react to something, whether is because she is overstimulated or simply the logical way in which she responds to things in ways that might seem hurtful to neurotypical people. As someone who has family members on the spectrum and has been in a relationship with someone on the spectrum for 20 years I love the insight this book provides to the way someone who is neurodivergent can experience the world and relationships.
Heavy loves the way Dina reacts to things and Dina loves the way Heavy makes her feel, especially his acceptance of her which is unusual. He makes her feel safe and cherished. Their ‘meet-cute’ is one of the most original I’ve ever read.
The plot is mainly focused on Dina and Heavy’s relationship but the way they met has a big impact on the plot too, with Dina’s determination to kill a family member and Heavy’s determination to get access to the information he needs. This book brings together several strands of this series and Hitting The Wall, which is quite complex and interesting. It makes the plot stand out for more than the romance aspect, it looks at morals and what you provided to accept in order to protect those you love.
I’ve enjoyed this series a lot and I can’t wait to see what this author does next.
The badass president of the SBMC has a problem. He has many. But this one is small, feisty and never acts as he’d expect. A brother’s sister turns up insisting on help to commit to a crime, offering a carrot and waving a stick. Heavy can’t be soft. He can’t afford to be. But Dina makes him hard and he can’t resist following the little pixie into her devious scheme while walking the the fine line of keeping his club safe, finally putting an ancient and king running feud to rest, and keeping the pixie from crossing the line. The solution is a surprising one. Dina Wall is a girl with a grudge. A problem that she needs to make go away on behalf of the safety of her family and her ersatz sister. She decides the beast of a man who runs her brother’s MC is the man to approach. Dina struggles with being on the autism spectrum - moreover other people struggle with it; she gets along. But how will she fare blackmailing the terrifying genius who runs Steelbones? Will she even survive him? If anyone can do it, Dina Wall knows she can do it. Actually doing it proves to be more challenging than either of them could ever have expected.
This is my favourite SBMC book - just. They’re all gold. If you’re new to the series it will be a fun introduction, if you’re familiar with them the find out the inner workings of the giant mastermind or SBMC works.
I really enjoyed this book. I didn't read any of the linked books, but I found the plot followable. The ASD is well done in my opinion. I only didn't understand the FMC saying she doesn't like fiction. It's an outdated autism stereotype, and she mentions fiction a few times. Her only reading the first 50% of romance books is relatable. The break-up beat is something I just have to put up with or skip as a romance reader—yes, it sucked in this book too. There is some ableism from side characters, but it's part of their roughness. Though I dislike hymen breaking being included in romance books due to it encouraging the spread of incorrect information, I appreciate that the author had fingers tearing a hymen. I have read too many books where a penis magically does it, despite the woman having experienced other penetration.
Exciting storyline with plenty of action and excitement. Dina is on the Autism Spectrum and enters the club house early one morning to ask a favour from Heavy. She gets more than she bargained for when she is whisked off to Vagas and married
