Tour Stop Corrupting Cinderella, Lost Kings MC series by Autumn Jones Lake

Can a lawyer and a criminal maintain an enduring romantic relationship?

Although Hope and Rock care deeply for one another, the truth is they come from completely different worlds. Add to that the fact that they are also both headstrong people, and they have a very rough road ahead of them.

For Rock that means introducing Hope to what it really means to be part of his brutal and shady world, where the Lost Kings Motorcycle Club is his main focus. For Hope it means accepting the things she can’t change, and understanding that Rock is a man who will do anything to keep her safe.

As Rock continues to draw Hope deeper into his world, painful misunderstandings and opposition from the members of his club will threaten to drive them apart.

As an only child, Autumn kept herself entertained by making up all sorts of stories. For a long time, life and school dimmed her enthusiasm for creative writing. But as soon as she rediscovered her love of storytelling, she put her fingers to the keyboard and hasn’t looked back.

Her favorite books to read are mystery, thrillers, horror, romance, erotica and urban fantasy. Her favorite thing to write is romance. All of her stories have to include a hunky hero and an optimistic ending.

When she’s not writing, Autumn spends time listening to music, going to concerts, and driving her family nuts. She enjoys reading, gardening, acting, and collecting nail polish. (Her husband says she shouldn’t be allowed to include gardening in her list of hobbies, because she makes him do all the work, but that’s not relevant.)

Autumn lives in Upstate New York with her husband and their three rescue dogs. She is actively involved with several dog rescue groups and her local RWA chapter.

"Understand where I'm coming from. A real man looks after his woman."

I'm not one to read a series with the same couple. That means more drama, more breaking up and making up. Sometimes, it works, the books are good, sometimes they're not. Thank God this is the first!

While yes, there is drama and breaking up and making up - hoo-boy, the making up is always hot - it just shows the truth, the way a relationship of that sort would be in real life. Yes, I know this is fiction but I still like it when I can read about things that can happen in real life. And the relationship between Hope and Rock is not one to work so easily. They're really opposites, it's not just wham, bam, they have sex, fall in love - or the other way around - and that's that. He tells her about the club, the business and she accepts all of it, like a good girl and boom, HEA.

That would have been kinda dull, actually. Nobody would have bought that, fiction or not.

And actually, I'd have done the same as Hope. I actually think I'm not ol' lady material, hah, hence why I live vicariously through MC book characters. 

So, in this one, Hope and Rock continue telling us their story; showing us how they feel and what they think, the struggles; in other words, the good, the bad and the ugly. Because it's an MC, of course there's ugly too. There were times when maybe one or the other was overreacting, but don't people always? What made my day[s] was that I got more Wrath than I was expecting and man, that big bad blonde either made me want to smack him or melt because he was all mushy.

We get to know the characters more, MC background etc. We also get glimpses of future books, I say.

All in all, really liked it, loved it and I'm giving it 5 stars and it's a definite reread. Highly recommend it to MC lovers.
