Auggie and Russell are two intriguing characters who make a fantastic couple. Their hesitations and complications are well handled and their relationship is emotional in it development.
Auggie's backstory is well developed and explored, creating a lovable, sympathetic character. His ability to eventually trust Russell is beautifully handled. And then there's Russell, who is so damn patient, kind, and caring with the skittish Auggie. It's impressive the way the author brings them together.
The writing is great, with a multi-layered story of action, danger and suspense.
It's fast paced with plenty of tender emotions. The abuse and family issues are treated with care. But most impressive is the way the author throws in some surprises, changing up the tone at times.
Although it's a story that ultimately revolves around a motorcycle club, it is way more than just that. It's a story of finding out what one really wants out of life and grabbing onto it.
Bandit is a riveting story of learning to trust and letting yourself love. This Ana Night tale is intense with plenty of heat and romance. This whole series is great. and I can't wait to see what happens next.
