There are two kinds of prison sentence that try to break us: the one served behind bars and the one served through a lifetime of guilt. Drew Tucker, despite his formidable reputation, was a man who had been dealt every kind of sentence known to man. His only path of survival was to fight and conquer. After five years of solitude with nothing to keep him company but old ghosts and relentless demons, Drew was finally out, and he had a plan to reign supreme again.
But everything had changed since he’d left the small town of Babylon, Texas, and where he once fit into the world around him, he now felt misguided, misplaced, and misunderstood. Freedom wasn’t free anymore and it sure as hell didn’t come cheap.
That only got worse when he crossed paths with Ayda Hanagan. Legal guardian of her teenage brother, over worked, underpaid and clinging onto sanity by the skin of her teeth, Ayda should have been easier for Drew to beat down and manipulate. She should have been easier to keep quiet.
Determined to stay on the road he was born to travel, Drew was willing to fight whoever got in his way or blocked his path to the top. Even the blue-eyed blonde who seemed to have more mouth than sense. His actions were about to shake up the whole town again, and Drew didn’t care whether that came with or without consequences, or what the hell that meant for the likes of Ayda Hanagan.

As MC books go this is pretty high up there with my favorites.
My first book by both these authors.
Without Consequence is what I call a quality read, 49 chapters containing highs, lows, angst, drama, in fact, there aren't many books where you get not just the meat of a story but the bones of the story and characters too.
I think the only other MC books I have said that about was Cat Porter who also leaves no stone unturned with the plot and you feel like you have been through one heck of a ride with the characters, have read a good quality book and more than that a money's worth kind of read and this is how I feel about Without Consequence.
A bit about the characters;
Drew Tucker is a feared man, he came across as a loose cannon, a man with a reputation, letting his temper get the better of him and later regretting his actions, going solo for revenge instead of including his brothers.
You first meet Drew when it's time for his release from a five-year stint in prison.
Following on from his release although back with his club he's feeling lost, being back reminds him even more of the best friend he lost the night he was also arrested.
Ayda comes into the story, a struggling one parent carer for her fifteen-year-old brother.
Ayda and Tate's parents died a few years ago in a bank robbery leaving Ayda to pick up the pieces along with her new role as Tate's mum, dad, sister, and carer all in one as well as working three jobs.
Drew and Ayda first meet when Drew brings Tate back home after finding him in the club looking for money.
Drew was once a man who would not let that go, Tate would have died for his actions by the hands of pre-prison Drew but Drew had changed since his release and he gave Ayda a way out by letting her clean at the club as a penance for her brother's crime.
I was glued to the pages with this slow build romance.
As MC reads go this was different to most I have read. I think I counted three sex scenes that weren't really in depth or with descriptive acts. There weren't many foul-mouthed horny Alphas knocking around the MC but there was a rival club and drama concerning that. The main focus was on Ayda and Drew struggles separately and together.
What I liked about this was the gradual build up, the getting to know each other stages with the characters, the breaking down of walls and barriers and then finally letting each other be free with their feelings.
Drew was a man who didn't understand connections, understand emotion, sympathy or love and it was like Ayda became his new tutor and voice of reason.
Great read and I will look forward to the next book.
Told in first persons dual pov, sort of leads to a hea, the club is on the brink of war but with regards to the characters, I did reach a happy sigh at the end for them.
