Gunner, book five in L. Wilder’s Satan’s Fury MC series, brings another worthy biker to the club and the hearts of readers!
While this book was full of suspense and action what it really brought to the pages were people reaching to find their role in the world and a place to call home. Ms. Wilder tied together a bunch of characters at loose ends, joining them together in a way that reached beyond all the other aspects of this work. Gunner and August both had love in their upbringings yet shared the loss of a present father figure, both gravitating and bonding with Gus the President of the Satan Fury MC Memphis chapter. Each craved not only finding a kinship with their own families but the urge to form their own family.
Gunner and August’s appeal was more than just physical. This pair shared attributes such as loyalty, dependability and kindness giving a firm connection to explore their mutual dreams and take their chemistry to the next level. Gunner had all the makings of a hero and August was the catalyst to give him the chance to be one. August was a perfect mix of vulnerable and capable. There was a sweetness to this relationship that was offset nicely with the steamy tension of their attraction. This author did a great job in her portrayal of August’s daughter Harper, who was charming and age appropriate.
Wilder writes in a deceptively casual way that makes her intense characters and story lines approachable and consuming. Lots of on point dialog and well-formed characters made up a wonderful cast that brought a whole other dimension to this author’s work. All of her books have an intimacy to them that make her words feel personal. Ms. Wilder writes in a gray area where her portrayal’s actions are not always socially accepted and defy the definitions of good and bad. The struggles of her characters to do what is right shows their humanity. In Gunner L. Wilder shares a depth filled story that merits praise and her devoted following.
