Release Date: August 15, 2016
Genre: MC / Military Romance
Stain picks up after the events in Grit and focuses on Meeka and Asher. They’ve been best friends for years, but an unexpected visit forces their relationship in a more satisfying direction! Meeka is a member of the all-female King’s Harlot MC. Asher is a Navy Seal who’s team is on a covert mission to bring down an sex trafficking ring. The two join forces to go undercover.
This is a great second installment! Although I wasn’t a huge fan of the first book in the series, I’m coming around. Stain is a solid book with a cohesive plot and great pace. The subject matter is much more focused and concise than the first book. The characters are well developed and relatable.
The story is bit darker than my normal read, but that didn’t take away from my enjoyment. This is a gritty, no holds barred kind of read. There are several elements (BDSM, kidnapping, abuse) presented that add to the mystery and intrigue, but may not be for everyone. I should point out these elements are background issues and do not play a major role in the relationship developing between the two main characters.
This book is a perfect blend of dark romance and military drama. I give it 4 Naughty Girl Stars!
