A dark MC sister's best friend romance
When you are running from your past, it never stays behind you. You can't keep running forever and eventually you will have to face what you tried to leave behind. In Broken Wings by Andi Rhodes, Cooper ran away to save his and his sisters' lives. Now, danger has caught up to them and his sister's best friend Lila is swept into the fray. Cooper wants to protect Lila - but he also recognizes the danger in doing that - because as his sister's best friend, Lila is off limits, and the closer they get to each other, the harder it is for Cooper to remember that.
Broken Wings by Andi Rhodes is book 2 in the next generation Broken Rebel Brotherhood MC series. I read book 1 beforehand and I think it definitely helped fill in context - but I hadn't read the Broken Rebel Brotherhood original member stories. I don't think you necessarily have to but I think I would have been more invested in some of the characters if I knew more about their parents. That being said, I did enjoy Cooper and Lila's story. It's a darker romance and deals with some very serious issues, but it kept me glued to the page. I really liked Cooper. His character is strong, even when he sometimes internally feels weak, he is a good man despite his difficult upbringing, and he cares a lot for his sisters. I found Lila to be immature, but I had to remind myself that she is only 19, and I think she does grow somewhat throughout the book. If you like MC romances, then this is a great pick for you. There is plenty of action that starts right off the bat - which I always appreciate, and the alpha males are pretty great. I'm looking forward to reading more from Ms. Rhodes. Thank you to the author and to GiveMeBooksPR for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

My father is one of the founding members of the Broken Rebel Brotherhood and my sister is with the current president. Needless to say, I’m overprotected. I’ve learned how to lie and keep secrets in order to have my fun but at nineteen, I had no clue what kind of trouble the real world would present.
When a monster rears its ugly head, I seek protection from the last person that should be giving it: my best friend’s brother. Little do I know, they have secrets of their own. Secrets that put my life in jeopardy far worse than I ever did. But I can’t seem to walk away from what I think Cooper can provide me and what I have no right asking him for: safety.
Living in Indiana wasn’t what I’d pictured for my life. Caring for my younger sisters when we had no one else to turn to definitely wasn’t on my agenda. But opening my own tattoo shop and building a life that didn’t revolve around drugs, guns, and chaos has always been my dream and now it’s my saving grace.
But when my sister’s best friend comes into the picture, my newly established peace is thrown off balance. My world shifts and I’m tossed head first into threats and violence that I never saw coming. I want to turn her away but I can’t. Every time she’s near, my heart skips a beat. I know that, no matter how many times I tell myself it’s a terrible idea, I will protect her life with my own. Even if it means going up against evil I thought I left behind.
