Three years ago my father walked away. Away from our MC club, all his responsibilities, and me. We haven’t spoken since the day he handed me the keys to the kingdom.

Shoved them down my throat was more like it.

I hate him, and the new family he’s playing house with. He left his entire life behind for a woman he barely knows. But I’m strong, resilient, and don’t need a damn soul to survive.
At least, that’s what I thought…until she walked into my bar.

Someone is watching me. I can feel it. I wake up in the middle of the night freaked out of my mind, paranoid a stranger is there. My skin prickles every time I leave my house, because I know someone is following me.
I’m afraid. Alone. And there’s only one person left to turn to.

The stepbrother I never met. The man my stepfather speaks so highly about, but never sees. He’s the president of a notorious motorcycle club, and exactly the kind of person I need to protect me.

Little did I know, Ky Parish, freakin’ hates my guts.

I always enjoy romantic suspense books, and after I read one I always wonder why I don’t have more on my TBR. It was certainly the case with Slashes in the Snow. I knew this was enemies to lovers but I didn’t expect the book to go the way it did. This is also a forbidden romance in that Ky and Kira are step-siblings. Now they haven’t met before so it isn’t that they grew up as siblings, but just in case that is something that might bother you.

Ky and Kira both have a lot of baggage, but I definitely think that Kira handles it better. Given that they both have a lot going on, I like that this was told from dual POV. I think if I wasn’t in each of their heads I would have not really understood or for that matter liked the characters as much. Though I did think Ky’s insta with-lust for Kira was a little much, but not enough to ruin the book.

In this book, we are introduced to Ky’s friends the Baum squad, who will be making appearances in the rest of the series. I enjoyed that they were introduced and a few of them played integral parts to the story. The suspense part doesn’t pick up until about two-thirds into the book.
