Deanna 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.
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?
In Climbing Out we get the back story on Deanna a.k.a HellMouth and Griz, second in command to Talon of the Hawks MC.
“Sure princess.” He smiled a smiled that made me want to drop to my knees and beg him to shove his dick in my mouth.”
The story starts by giving us a small update of how Talon and Zara are doing and how things have settled since the dreadful night that David, Zara’s ex got ahold of her and everyone nearly lost her. However, no one has seen Deanna for weeks on end. She’s been cooped up in her house doing god knows what. Until one day Zara and Julian have had enough. What they find is shocking and confusing at the same time and Zara knows something is wrong. Deanna not wanting to pull them into her problems refuses to speak so Zara does what she knows Deanna doesn’t want. She calls on her Talon. He then brings in the cavalier and the story flourishes from then on.
“My problem, assface, is that you have the balls to ask if I’m her daddy when I was not even two seconds ago sucking her face and she was enjoying every minute of it. Now, did that look to you like I’m her fuckin’ father?”
We find out that more about the older, yet strikingly sexy Griz moments later. We find out not one, but two things about Griz that some of the newer members to the club had no idea about. Griz has enough of his own demons to worry about, that he doesn’t want anything to do with Deanna’s problems, but at the same time only wants to keep her safe while not admitting that he has strong feelings for her that he hasn’t felt for anyone in a long time.
“Too late for that—your guy already touched her in a way I didn’t like. She’ll have a bruise from it for a couple of days, which means she’ll remember what happened for a couple of days, and I don’t like that.”
Deanna and Griz end up spending a lot of time together and one night changes everything, bringing all their feelings to the forefront and it’s explosive.
“Yeah, fuck off, dickhead, and if you ever sniff around my woman again, you’ll pay the price.”
I can’t give over how possessive these bikers are of their loved ones, yet so soft at the same time. It drives me crazy. Deanna and Griz bring out the best of each other while changing each other for the best. I believe that is why they were so drawn to each other from the very first book. Again hot sex scenes, fights, violence, swoon worth moments, tears and more, nothing short of a great biker romance.
“A soft growl erupted from his chest. “Do not fuck with me right now or I’ll take you on the floor right here and right now. I don’t give a fuck who watches.”
We even get to have our favorite three back together again: Zara, Julian and Deanna. Wouldn’t be the same without some awfully funny scenes with the three of them right?
Without giving anything away, I think Deanna grew the most out of all the characters in this book and so far in the series. I think with her terrible past she was the most closed off from flourishing in life. She closed off her emotions except where Zara was concerned, but even a bit from her at times. Her past and withdraw from emotions is also why she has the mouth that she has, but once you learn what events that took place brought here to that place you will understand her character so much more. Just know it’s a HEA and no cliffhanger.
