I give Mouse Trapped (Satan’s Devils MC #9) by Manda Mellett, 5 stars.
Mouse is part of the Satan’s Devils MC. The white half of him enjoys the computer work he does for his brothers. However, the Native American side of him needs to feel the freedom of being in the wild on a horse. It is one of these times in the wild when he hears someone screaming in terror. He comes across a woman being confronted by a bear. He helps her, then offers to bring her back to her car. It’s obvious she has never been on a horse or a motorcycle. There is something about her that makes him want to get to know her better. Well besides how sexy she is. But it is very obvious that she is hiding something.
Mariana is technically an illegal immigrant. But she arrived in the States when she was only 4 years old and her brother was born here. She has to keep her head down and not trust anyone, not only for herself, but for her brother’s sake. Then Mouse comes along. When events not under her control happen, she is put in the spotlight of the immigration authorities who want nothing more than to get rid of another illegal. The only person she know is Mouse. Will he help? Can he? What will end up happening?
There is a lot going on in this book. I have not read this series or this author before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It definitely covers some very topical issues right now and you see them from a way you not have necessarily looked at before. But besides that there is the relationship between Mariana and Mouse. This book is part of a series about a motorcycle club. The MC romance genre is not something I read too much of. Therefore, I did not quite understand some of the terms and such associated with these book. But the fact that I was pulled into the book having not started the series from the beginning and that this is not necessarily my genre of choice says just how good this book is. I could not put it down. All of the characters were so interesting and I cannot wait to go back and learn more about them in previous books. The story itself is original and grabbed me right away. I can’t say I relate to issues either one is having, but the the author makes me feel it and I can understand it. Not to mention that she just keeps hitting you with surprise after surprise. Just when you think the action is over – BAM! – something else happens.
This is a book full of action and just what you will do for those you care for. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it.
