Saint by Chantal Fernando

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Wind Dragons and Cursed Ravens MC series comes sinners, saints and secrets…

Dear Skylar,

Five years. That’s a long time to go without talking to somebody, especially someone who was such a huge part of your life…

A letter from my first kiss and my childhood everything… from prison.

He may be nicknamed Saint, but this sweet, sexy biker most definitely has a wild streak. Hearing from him draws me right back into the Knights of Fury motorcycle club—the people I’ll always think of as family.

He’s still the only man I’ve ever wanted.

Each good, old-fashioned letter from my “prison pen pal” has my heart racing. Which is nothing compared to how I feel when Saint surprises me in person, as a free man.

I was just a kid the last time we saw each other, but the connection between us now is anything but innocent.

He’s the type of man who would do anything to protect his woman. And with my world crashing down around me, that’s exactly what I’m going to need.

Please note: This book is part of the Knights of Fury MC series but can be read as a stand-alone.

This is the first in a new MC series from Fernando, and she definitely has created a great set of bikers for us to watch as they find their happily ever afters. The Knights of Fury are a small, tight knit bunch and what happens to one, happens to all, so we get insight into just what makes this group tick.

Skylar tells us her story in the first voice in this book, and at times I found her constant inner chatter a little annoying – however, what it also did was set her age and experience at the fore of the story, and that was really relevant and important. She has not had a simple family life, with many older brothers and a very hard mother – wait until you find out just HOW hard!! As the layers of Sky's past are peeled away, one can only have sympathy for her.

Saint finally feels it is safe to get in touch with Sky, who he has never forgotten. They immediately reconnect, as if they were always meant to be together. The chemistry is intense, and as the barriers are no longer relevant, this is their time. And I have to say the transition from inappropriate age difference to absolutely fine is really well played out.

Inevitably there have to be issues to make their happily ever after have some serious bumps – and wow, certainly didn't see those bumps coming!

I really enjoyed this start of a new series, and will most definitely be following the rest of the MC as they get their chance to settle down and open up their emotional sides! Saint and Skylar set the bar high, but the hints we got would suggest there is plenty more goodness to come.

Sky grew up in the MC life as far as her father, Hammer, would allow a child to be involved. But it was the only life she knew. Saint was the guy she had a crush on, but she thought he didn't feel the same. There was a five-year age difference between them and she was only 16. So, Saint wasn't about to mess with her. The chemistry between Sky and Saint has the potential of being off the charts, right now it just sizzles.

When Hammer and Sky's mother split, her mother leaves and takes Sky with her, taking Sky away from the only father she has ever known. And telling Sky that Hammer doesn't want anything to do with her because if he did, then he would have called her.

When Sky gets a letter from Saint, she can't believe what she is reading, why after all these years is he reaching out to her? When Sky learns the truth, she doesn't confront her mother, she leaves the country and moves in with her brother Logan. Reuniting with Hammer and Saint, she learns so much more than she thought and the pain she feels is more than just betrayal.

Will Sky confront her mother about the reasons they left? Can she forgive Saint and Hammer for not reaching out to her sooner? What happens when secrets are revealed? Can Saint and Sky survive his secrets?

I really liked this story but sometimes Sky got on my nerves with her childish all-about-my-pain ways. Either accept what has happened and move on with these men or just move on. I would have liked a little more at the end but maybe there will be more of Saint and Sky in the next book. I can't wait to see what Chantal Fernando comes up with next.

The story started out slow, showing us how the characters came to be related by blood or friendship. This is an MC romance, but we don't see a lot of interaction between the club members. Most of the time it seemed the book was written from Sky's point of view but occasionally we got to see Saint's thoughts.

I would think that given the impact Hammer has on Sky's life, we would know more about him, what he does, and how he kept track of her after her mother left with her.

The romance between Sky and Saint has chemistry but they don't seem to have much in common. Saint doesn't talk about his work – either legitimate or not – but focuses solely on Sky. Sky's character is sometimes focused and at others immature. She has no friends in town other than her brothers and the club members.

I understand Sky's need to connect with her mother and I'm glad when she realizes that she will never have the connection she wants with her.

I wish the characters of Saint and Sky were a little more developed. I think this has the potential to be a great series.
