Shooter (Burnout #1) by Dahlia West
The photo of the Black Hills National Forest on the cover had caught her eye and she thumbed through it, settling on Rapid City as the closest she could get and still feel anonymous.
Hayley Turner is a young woman with a secret. Arriving in yet another destination to escape the horror of her past, she meets Chris “Shooter” Sullivan, war hero, biker, landlord, and a man that seems to dislike her. Should she leave before he finds out?
Shooter Sullivan moved back to Rapid City after the horrors of Iraq to open his custom motorcycle shop. His life was at an even keel with business and his buddies, when beautiful and lonely Hayley Turner shows up hiding something in her past. Should he trust her?
This story evoked powerful emotions in me. It depicts two people who have had devastating things happen to them in the past and who discover their path to peace and happiness in each other. The way Ms. West draws Hayley’s past out is sensitive and credible and the suspense that follows is intense. Both characters were well-developed and presented well, and I can’t wait to read about Shooter’s buddies in the rest of the series.
If you like broken heroes and heroines and romantic suspense, I recommend this book.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I live in North Carolina with so many pets that every time it rains I consider building an ark. I majored in English Education, though most of my jobs have involved using my hands: framing art, grooming dogs, stocking shelves. I started writing about seven years ago to avoid going back to a real job. I’ve recently taken up roller derby just to test my health insurance coverage.
