My ReviewPoint of Return by Stacey Lynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Olivia fled her home and the motorcycle club she grew up in after her mother was killed in front of her and she was shot. Feeling abandoned by those she loved when she needed them, she stayed away for five years. She then finds herself back in her home town but fighting against returning to the life she once knew and loved. Circumstances beyond her control place her back in touch with the motorcycle club she fled and her first love Daemon. Through all the struggle and chaos, it becomes clear to Olivia that she might not want to continue fighting the life she once loved, and the man she finds she still wants.
If you like books about motorcycle clubs and the special kind of drama, chaos, and personality that goes with that lifestyle then you will enjoy this book. The characters arena little raw and a little rough, but are easy to engage with and take interest in. Olivia is an easy character to connect with. It is clear that she's been hurt and has had a hard time moving past that hurt and the people she associates with that. It is also hard to see that she isn't really living a life that provides her with any real fulfillment because of being stuck emotionally. Daemon has had to make a lot of tough choices himself, and he isn't always the easiest guy to get along with. It is clear, however, at he is a sexy man who is in love with Olivia.
There are all sorts of plot twists and turns, but through it all we get to see Olivia realizing who she is, what she wants, and embracing the life she is choosing to live. The sexual tension between Olivia and Daemon is intense and hot. I really hoped that they would be able to figure things out since they obviously loved each other and had for a very long time. I enjoyed the action and excitement in this book as well as the intense emotional roller coaster these characters went through. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
