Deadly Seduction (The Rough Riders #1) by Selene Chardou

Deadly Seduction
ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review.

Gisela is an attorney in her own firm, Jackson and Hughes. She is also the daughter of Raymond Jackson, a ganster.
She provides services to the local MC, the Lucifer Saints. She has a past with one of the members, Cillian "Killer" Cox. They fell in love as teenagers and despite the decades apart they still love each other. Although, sometimes love can feel like hate.
When Cillian and Gisela are forced to break apart as teenagers, Cillian makes the mistake of marrying someone else.  He doesn't love his life and just wants to go back to Gisela.
Gisela has never forgotten Cillian and no other relationship has made her feel what she lost when Cillian left.
Suddenly, they are forced to work together when Cillian hires her as his attorney for Club business.
Can they forgive and forget the past? Or will the mistakes they made in the past repeat themselves.

I really wanted to like this book because I love other MC series but I felt disconnected toward the characters. I was never truly invested with the hero or the heroine.
In fact, at some point the hero does something unforgivable in my eyes. It completely turned me off from the story. I was so mad about what he did that I almost had to stop reading. There is no excuse in my book for what he did and I think Gisela was way to forgiving.

In addition, at times the story felt confusing. Too many characters were introduced.
I understand the author is trying to create the structure for books to come but it felt too rushed.

2/5 Fangs
