Review: For Your Sake by Elayne DiSano

For Your Sake by Elayne DiSano

Hidden at the northern-most point of the Mountain State of West Virginia was the quiet town of Tippitt, home to less than twenty thousand residents as well as the Mountain Skulls Motorcycle Club. Under a veil of good standing and legitimate business, the 1% outlaws maintain a tight watch on their surroundings while conducting affairs which bring in the ‘real’ money.

Ben Lawson isn’t just the club’s enforcer, but the one called upon when debts got settled. Big, strong and fiercely loyal, his unassuming calm belies a man willing to get his hands dirty for a club who’d been his only family. But when the deaths of two brothers hits too close to home, it cracks that detatched exterior, sending him on collision course which literally lands him in the path Eva Sinclair.

Beautiful and independent, Eva has wrapped her life around her business and new home in an effort to bury memories best left behind. Anyone she ever cared for has either died or left, causing her to emotionally push away anyone who gets too close. But when near-fatal circumstances puts her on Ben’s radar, she finds herself being shadowed by a man as dangerous as his club’s whispered reputation. Before she knows it, Eva finds herself breaking her own protective rules, allowing the imposing biker into her life where his outlaw lifestyle challenges her civilian one. Their attraction is instant and explosive – and one neither one can afford……nor resist. 

But when the club finds a connection between Eva and a current threat, it jeopardizes the fragile trust between her and a man who holds no forgiveness for betrayal– and may wind up his target because of it.




This book have a similar 'feel' to Move the Sun by Susan Fanetti. Well, minus the rough sex and badass chick. 

Ben is the Skull MC's enforcer, the one responsible for the killing. Though, gotta say his name too tame for my taste. But his name really do reflect his inner personality. In order to be efficient in his work, he is calm and plan things through. Due to not having a real home since young, he treasure having a family within the MC and love his peace and quiet moment. He is also the only biker I read who is a claustrophobic neat-freak. 

Eva's life was normal. She lives alone and own a business. Yeah, it sounds like nothing remotely interesting about her. I did find the little mundane details about her everyday life in the beginning boring. That is up until Ben step into her life and keep appearing at her home, then things become interesting. Eva did have a little tidbits about her family past that creep up during the last moment.

They both meet when they nearly crashed into each other by the mountain side. From then onward, Ben just keep popping up in her life and having an immensely interest in her new Victorian style home. I like that she didn't really had a hard time accepting Ben for being who he is. She was wary at first, but then manage to let go and embrace their future together. Seeing them playing house together was really sweet. 

There are some interesting side characters that I would definitely read like Aero, the VP who was an ex-Air Force guy or Taz, the tatted and pierced blabber mouth. 

Overall, quite a good start if this indeed turn up as a series.

Rating 3.5/5
