Dawson may have everything under control and trying to make a life with his new girl Molly, but when Cartel trouble puts his club and livelihood in danger, certain things WILL have to happen. But when his plan to kidnap the daughter of the Cartel's Kingpin doesn't get the reaction he wants, Dawson leaves the MC's enforcer to do the job.

Chase never thought that babysitting someone would be so dangerous, but Caterina is making his life miserable. Yes, she is nice looking and has a body to die for but with the constant escape attempts and physical violence she directs towards him, Chase is rethinking this whole job. But when Dawson gives him a direct order to "Get Close" to Cat, he has no choice but smile and try and play nice. But who would have thought that he would start to feel something for the feisty Latina. 

Caterina Jimenez hates her father and couldn't wait to get away from him but this was not her plan. She wanted to go to medical school, start over somewhere new but when the sexy enforcer put a kink in her plan. Yes she may fight him a little but not for the reason he may think. She wants far away from her old life and decides with a little help from her new friend, she just maybe be able to "Get Away". But falling for her captor wasn't in her plan, can she get away from her father and still make it with her sexy enforcer.

This story has alternating POV's and follows two couples (Dawson & Molly / Chase & Cat). T
his is Book #2 of The Slayers MC series, however it does give the reader enough backstory to read this as a stand alone.The plot is great and actually is a quick read. I found myself starting it and then the next thing I know I was at 75%. The major conflict was not fully detailed but I much rather reading about the couples and their drama, than how a Kingpin went down. I do know that I am now going back to read book #1 so I can get a full understanding of Dawson's backstory.

Great Read and Great Series...... 4 Stars!
