Makenna has a past she’d rather bury deep in her mind. Unfortunately, as the sole guardian for her five siblings, forgetting where they came from isn’t possible. All she can hope for is to provide her loved ones the kind of untroubled childhood she’d always dreamed of and keep them far away from where she grew up. Friendships and relationships, especially the romantic variety, don’t rank on her priority list. That is until she’s introduced to a hot biker whose playful personality and mesmerizing smile would make any woman perk up and take notice, even one with more responsibilities than sense.
Thunder has seen it all, done it all, and has no interest in the high maintenance, in-your-face, party girls. Give him a no-frills woman, like the diner’s adorable new waitress, who doesn’t play games rather than a scantily clad bimbo who manipulates men for sport. Makenna is precisely the kind of fun he needs to celebrate patching with the Hell’s Handlers MC. Only he quickly discovers Makenna is a package deal with more baggage than a carefree guy like him can handle.
With each passing day, Thunder finds himself increasingly drawn to Makenna despite her mountain of responsibilities and his distrust of relationships. Even crazier is how some of her siblings are working their way under his skin and into his heart, as is Makenna.
Just as Thunder starts thinking about dates and promises, the CDMC roars back into his life. They’re responsible for his beloved club brother’s death, and he wants nothing more than to make them suffer.
When the threats start coming, and Makenna finds herself caught in the crossfire, Thunder will discover exactly the kind of man he is, and how far he’s willing to go to keep Makenna and her siblings in his life.
ADD Thunder to your Goodreads TBR:
The end of a long and winding road is here. I semi-binged this series so the entire brotherhood swims in my head right now as I try to write this review. I don’t really know how I feel about it coming to an end, but I know it has been a heck of a ride.
The story of McKenna and Thunder was not just surface emotional, but deep down to the marrow of your soul emotional. Their respective pasts were traumatic distressing and a lot at times, but their journey together was uplifting and full of hope. I wasn’t excessively overwhelmed while reading but almost always on the verge. It was quite an experience coming out of Viper’s story into this one. I loved every minute.
Now that I’ve read all the books in the Hell’s Handlers MC series, I have to state very emphatically, that if you want the best experience out of it, you really need to start at the beginning. That’s almost always the case with all MC romance fiction. I never *eyeroll* get tired of repeating that! LOL (yes, yes I do!!) So don’t start here, this is far from a standalone, but ya’ll will do what you will so … Happy Reading!

Thunder is book 10 in the Hells Handlers series. It also sounds like it is the final book to the series. The story focuses on Thunder and Makenna.
I found this book to be just OK. I didn’t really click with the characters. Maybe because I haven’t read the other books in the series. There were hella cheesy parts that had me rolling my eyes. But the general story line was good and there were some unexpected twists.
Thunder and Makenna have both suffered some type of trauma from their childhood. I believe that is why they were so drawn to each other. They are the exact opposites of what they know and experienced.
Thunder has a strange perspective towards women and he’s basically emotionally unavailable until he meets Makenna. He doesn’t know how to deal or express the emotions he has because they are so foreign to him and he’s scared $hitless of being hurt or ending up in a meaningless/loveless relationship.
Makenna lacks experience of affection, love, and living free in general. She grew up way to fast, has seen too many horrible things and experienced a large amount of abuse; physical and emotional. The only thing pushing her forward are the siblings that she is raising. It’s always been them against the world until she meets Thunder and the Hells Handlers. Makenna pushes people away because she believes she’s protecting them from her past, what she doesn’t realize is Thunder and the Hells Handlers are the ones who can protect her from her own past.
If you’ve been following the series this far, I have no doubt you will enjoy this book.
