Lost. Alone. Desolate.
Wren Glass was done. She couldn’t continue to live the lie everything was okay, when in reality, she was dead inside. After being used and abused by the Hell Captains MC, Wren lands in the lap of Maniac. A man who sees her as nothing more than a chore.
A man just like the one she managed to escape.
At least, that’s what she thought.
Vengeful. Enraged. Calculated.
Maniac West isn’t a man to mess with. Not with him and not with his club.
When he is assigned to watch over Wren, he ignores how he feels about the woman with the soulless eyes. Something in them makes him crave to return light there. But Wren is a job. No more, no less.
That all changes when Wren decides she doesn’t want to live.
A woman battered and bruised from the inside out, with no will to live, needs a hero.
Maniac isn’t a hero, but he will turn hell upside down and burn it to the ground to avenge the woman who fell into his world. Anything to bring back the light in her eyes.
Maniac is an emotional read about trust, recovery and love.
Warning – Maniac does contain some trigger topics (Rape and suicide), so if those are triggers for you then this may not be for you.
I have read all the books in the Fallen Lords MC series and this one is my favorite so far. Wren suffered at the hands of the Hell Captains MC. She suffered so much she attempted to end her life. She is rescued by Maniac, a Fallen Lord, who watches over her as she recovers. Maniac is an alpha biker with a soft spot for Wren. He is so patient with and yet pushes her just enough to pull her out of her shell. Their relationship develops as the book goes on. It isn’t an easy road, but it is a sweet one.
I enjoyed the book quite a bit. I definitely liked more than the first two, not that there was anything in particular wrong with the first two books, but I can tell Travers has developed as a writer and the story just didn’t seem as forced. I loved Wren and Maniac. There is romance and danger and humor. There is one scene where all the women are drunk and it is hilarious. My only real complaint is near the end, Maniac “deals” with the Hell Captains. I get he’s a member of an MC, but this scene was so different from the rest of the book that I was just a little shocked. It isn’t that it doesn’t fit with the story, it was just shocking, that’s all.
A good MC romance!
