18717645Title: Climbing Out (Hawks Motorcycle Club #2)

Author: Lila Rose

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Publication Date:  May 27, 2014

DescriptionDeanna Drake has a past she longs to forget, but won’t ever be able to. She’s always been the tough one. No one, but her best friend Zara has ever been able to penetrate her cold, hard, shell.

Until Griz

Griz— a.k.a Grady Daniels, Hawks Motorcycle Club second in command, also has a past that he wishes he could undo…all except one part. 

It’s her past that brings them together. Only will it be forever?


I received an advance copy of this book as a beta reader.

Another  fun and quick read! Climbing Out is full of sex and humor with a little suspense on the side.

I like Lila Rose’s unique characters. The main character, Deanna, has a mouth that would make a sailor cringe. She matures a lot in this book, though, when she falls for Griz and his daughter. Deanna’s best friend, who was the main character in the first book in this series, is very pregnant and very happy. The bikers are all rough on the outside and pussycats on the inside.

This book had more violence than the first in the series and less suspense. Lila Rose still kept most of it pretty light with her sense of humor.

I recommend Climbing Out as long as you don’t mind swearing and if you enjoy steamy scenes.
