Review: Strength from Loyalty by Autumn Jones Lake

Publication Date: 3/17/2015
Series: Lost Kings MC #3
Rating: 5 Stars

Official Blurb:

ROCK & HOPE part three.

Struggling attorney, Hope Kendall loves her outlaw, biker boyfriend, Rochlan “Rock” North with all her heart, but the questionable activities his motorcycle club are involved in are about to threaten the legal career she’s not even sure she still wants.

Rock finally has the support of all his officers to bring Hope deeper into the inner circle of the Lost Kings MC. When his offer to have the club help her out of her legal predicament is met with hostility, he’s once again forced to question whether they are able to make their drastic differences work for the long haul.

A near death makes any squabble seem insignificant, but puts a cloud over their future. And while Rock has been working hard to give Hope the honesty she craves, one secret she’s been keeping all along, may finally drive them apart for good.

This series has honestly broken me for 99.9% of MC Romance books. Lake’s unlikely romance between two people from two very different walks of life really struck a chord with me on multiple levels. While most people read a book just to pass the time and frankly I do the same thing 90% of the time, I relish when I find one book or a book series that makes me feel so connected to the story and the meaning behind it. Lake’s plot basis of these two star crossed lovers working together to beat the world trying to rip them apart. The title for this book is sheer perfection because it encompasses the true meaning of this story. The emotions you will feel when you read this novel and series for that matter is what I can only compare to an emotional rollercoaster. One minute you are flying high with a huge smile on your face and next you’re covering your eyes screaming and crying as you flip upside down going 100 mph.

Rock and Hope’s love story has really been a tale of two worlds. Hope’s profession as a lawyer seems quite odd when you think about her relationship with a motorcycle club president. He’s fast, dangerous, and deadly when necessary compared to her calm, cool demure in the court room. Yet, Hope has that inner sassy bitch inside of her, but the tragedy in her life keeps snuffing her sass back into submission. Rock is the yang to Hope’s ying. They balance each other out even if they fight about how their lives fit together.

The epic conclusion to Rock and Hope’s story isn’t without some serious heart break. As this series begin with loss so shall it end with loss. The realization after this tragic event occurs about the future of some of these characters didn’t really set in until hours after I finished. My heart ached for them as if I was mourning right alongside of them. However, from ashes comes renewal and rebirth. As this series continues with other characters from Rock’s MC, I know I will love their stories just as much as I loved Rock and Hope’s tale of love. This book comes highly recommended by Saints and Sinners Books and if you’re looking for a taste of something wonderful then you should probably pick this book series up STAT.
