Rake's Redemption (Wind Dragons MC #4)
by Chantal Fernando

Now Live! 

In New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando’s latest novel in the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club series, Rake—baddest of the bad boys—gets his own romance at last!

Rake is known for being up for anything, in and out of the bedroom. He’s wild, he’s deadly, yet quick with a joke or a stolen kiss. Known as the player of the WDMC, he loves women, the more the merrier. However, behind his womanizing façade, Rake hides the pain of losing his first love, Bailey. He hasn’t loved anyone since, and doesn’t think he ever will.

Seven years after their split, Rake and Bailey run into each other at the MC’s favorite club. Old wounds resurface, secrets are spilled...and passionate feelings are awakened. But they’ve each done things to hurt the other, hurt them too badly to get over it—haven’t they? Only when Bailey’s connection to Rake puts her in danger from another Club member does he realize that there’s nothing he won’t do to protect her—and claim her as his once again.

I always look forwarding to reading a book from the Wind Dragon series, because they are always fun and entertaining reads. Even though this book was my least favorite book of the series, I still really enjoyed it.

I loved seeing all of the characters from the previous books! They are all fantastic characters, and it was so nice to see them all interact again. Bailey, the main character of this book, was great. I enjoyed her commentary a lot! I thought she was a smart woman who had a strong head on her shoulders. I think she adds a nice addition to the group of women in this series

Adam/Rake was sexy and intense. I liked how loyal he was to the people he cared about. However, sometimes he got a little too intense for me. I didn't like how bossy he would be towards Bailey. I can do alpha male, but sometimes, it got to be a little too much. I would have liked that to have been toned down. 

The connection between Adam and Bailey was palpable. Chantal did a great job at creating believable chemistry and tension between them. I would have liked their drama to have been solved a little sooner, because the secret keeping was driving me crazy. Once the air was cleared between the two of them, I enjoyed their relationship a lot more! Bailey and Adam made a great couple.

I felt like there wasn't a lot going on in this book compared to the previous books. A majority of the book consisted of drinking, hooking up, and partying. Now, there isn't anything necessarily wrong with that! However, it did get a little repetitive after a while. I would have liked there to have been more action in this book. I thought some of the chapters dragged a bit because it felt like the characters kept doing the same thing over and over again. All of that being said, I still found this book to be very entertaining. The characters were all hilarious and their interactions were great! Chantal has created so many unique and lovable characters that I have grown attached too.

Overall, this was sexy and quick read. I would definitely recommend this book to fans of the Wind Dragons series! I am excited to see what will happen in the next book.

*This ebook was given to me in exchange for a honest review. * 

I am always so, so excited to read a new installment in this series. For so long I’ve been curious about Rake after seeing glimpses of him in the previous books, and I was not disappointed. 

Rake is a member of The Wind Dragon’s MC. He’s known to really love women and is considered the ladies man of the club. When he runs into his old love, the one girl that he thought he would spend the rest of his life with, he’s immediately reminded of the hurtful events that led to their break up. 

Bailey can’t believe it when she runs into Rake after all these years. They still have a strong connection, but the past has left Rake angry and bitter. When the truth of the night that led to their breakup is uncovered, Rake and Bailey are left with the memories of a painful past. 


Rake was everything I expected and more. All the men in this series are so alpha, but still so sweet to the women…which I absolutely love. Sometimes when reading about alpha men, it’s hard for me to find a good balance of alpha, instead of a**hole, and Chantal Fernando does a fantastic job and finding that perfect balance. 

One thing that I always worry about with a second chance romance story is the time it takes for the characters to face their past. RAKE’S REDEMPTION had the perfect pacing! The characters kept the story moving along that I found myself lost in their story with little awareness of what was going on around me. 

The Wind Dragon MC series is one of my absolute favorites. I know if I’m ever in a book slump I can count on this series to get me out. If you’re looking for something a little dark, fast paced, but still revolving around friendship and love, check out this series!
