From the author of Hidden Heat (“Filled with action, deception, and emotional and sexual tension.”—Publishers Weekly), the Brothers of Mayhem MC rides again in an explosive novel of wounded hearts and undeniable heat.
Forget shining armor. Motorcycle shop owner Mary Jane Parker could use a knight in black leather right about now. A local gang has been extorting her for protection money, and standing her ground would be a lot easier with the Brothers of Mayhem at her back. She just needs to convince the club’s new president to take the job. The powerful, brooding biker claims he’s not interested—but if his version of tough love is supposed to be punishment, Mary Jane would gladly misbehave for the rest of her life.
Storm Ryder has no interest in rescuing anyone but himself. He spent three agonizing years in prison, and there’s no way in hell he’s going back, not over a spoiled rich girl who’s flirting with trouble. So why does he find himself craving Mary Jane’s lips—and holding her close when he should be pushing her away? Deep down in his tortured soul, Storm knows she’ll be there for him. And when Mary Jane needs him most, he’ll find the courage to give her everything he’s got.

Carla welcomes me once again in the wonderful and addicting world of the Brothers of Mayhem with the story of the one and only, Storm Ryder!
Full Heat takes place almost 3 years after Hidden Heat has its epilogue. This time, the heroes who fall under Cubic’s spell are Storm Ryder, Cassidy’s brother, and Mary Jane Parker. Storm, who we saw him end up in prison in the end of the previous book, now he’s the Prez of the Brothers of Mayhem MC and has set as their description the body guarding of whoever needs it. And that’s the link which will bring Mary Jane at his doorstep and the chance to finally find what he didn’t know he wanted the most. Mary Jane is a co-owner of a mechanic shop. After she and her partner start getting threats from another MC, they turn to Storm and his brothers to help them.
And the “falling hopelessly in love” part of the plan is set in motion. From the very start, they both develop a deep connection and every second they spend together their feelings become more and more strong. As for the chemistry between them? Plain. B U R N I N G. HOT!!!! Both IN & OUT of the bedroom 😉 What they share is pretty mind-blowing for everyone who gets to see it.
Her touch was better than drugs.
Swafford once again gave me a story with characters who have such unique personalities and so many intriguing layers that take everything on the next level. The incompleteness and harshness I experienced when I read them when they were apart, were crashed to the ground when they were together. At those moments, every ounce of love, gentleness, passion, desire they possessed inside them shadowed everything negative that was happening. The intensity which was been created during those moments was undoubtedly overwhelming. My body was under its power in a constant base and it felt every part of every emotion Storm and Mary Jane gone through. And if I had to choose one word to describe this book and the story it tells, then, without second thought, the best one would be what exactly what Carla very successfully named her Full Heat male: STORM.
And you definitely don’t want to miss the chance to experience to be in the middle of this Storm! 😉 It’s like nothing I have ever felt!
