Being the younger sister of a Wind Dragons MC member isn’t as great as you’d think it would be.
I can’t escape the details of my brother’s exploits.
No one tells me anything.
Men who know who I am tend to stay away from me.
And worst of all:
The members of the MC are off-limits.
When Arrow catches my eye, I make it my mission to make him happy again.
When I fall head over heels in love with him, I just hope he will be there to catch me.
And that my brother doesn’t kill him.
Review by Amanda
Arrow's Hell is the second book in the Wind Dragon's MC Series, and you need to read Dragon's Lair before reading this to understand the events that have led up to the start of this book.
Arrow carries the weight of the world on his shoulders - after getting out of prison and the death of Mary, he has struggled with grief and guilt. In death, he offers Mary the one thing that he could not give while she was alive - faithfulness. This part of the book I found extremeley emotional to read, the pain was so vivid and devastating. Arrow makes himself suffer in atonement for everything that he feels he should have done differently. He is a broken man who only has one reason for living his club.
Enter Anna - she is everything Arrow has been dreaming of wrapped up in a perfect package. She is sassy, smart, quickwitted and of course not at all afraid of the alpha males that make up the Wind Dragons. Unfortunately, she is also Rake's sister, which makes things somewhat more complicated. She automatically receives protection and seems to be perpetually monitored by the dominant men within the club, much to her irritation. Anna is a free spirit and she sometimes finds the constant watchfulness claustrophobic..
As soon as she meets Arrow, she is drawn to the quiet and somber member even though he has walls a mile high. I loved the interaction between the two, especially when Arrow is still in the stages of denial. Anna is sassy, she flirts and jokes with him - knowing that the responses will be one word or grunts, but she makes it her mission to get Arrow to at the very least crack a smile. She is intrigued by him, she can see that he is broken and she wants to be the one that helps him put all those broken pieces back together.
Arrow doesn't feel that he deserves any light or goodness in his life because of what he has done in his past, and also in large because of the events that transpired with him being unable to protect Mary. He does his best to fight the attraction he feels for Anna, but unfortunately the road to hell is paved with good intentions and as the two start spending more and more time together, feelings start to develop and passion abounds.
Will Arrow be able to overcome the ghosts of his past? Will Anna be able to break through his walls and save Arrow from his hell?
This has been my absolute FAVORITE book by Chantal Fernando. It is filled with hot, alpha biker males and moody ones at that - SWOON! It also told with such finesse and feeling that you almost want to get inside the book to give Arrow a hug and simultaenously a smack in the back of the head. I loved how we got to see the tortured soul he was and also how he weighed up his feelings for Anna. He liked her, but he was scared of putting her in the same position he had put Mary in. He also then had the issue of how he could date the sister of his best friend and club brother. I loved that we got to experience his inner monologue and were privy to his own pain - it felt like our own.
Anna is BRILLIANT - a female character that is young, ridiculously smart and also takes no SHIT! Hell yes! I loved that the relationship between her and Rake was also a developing one throughout the book. Watching them grow closer was a real treat for me - it is something I relished reading and it made my heart smile as their relationship became what they both wanted it to be. I loved that she was a woman who knew exactly what she wanted and offered no apologies for it. Well done Chantal Fernando for creating a character that all of us women aspire to be.
The club brothers of course featured heavily in the novel, as is to be expected, and I love reading all about them. We are given insight into the inner workings of the club - who the brothers are and how they all fit together, which I loved. We are also given more detail about each brother, and this is really exciting because I know I have fallen harder for each and everyone one of the men in this book. One character that especially stands out for me is Talon, he intrigues me completely! I hope that he will get his own story. Next up in this brilliant series will be Tracker and I am waiting in anticipation until I can get sucked into the world of the Wind Dragons MC again.
Arrow's Hell gets 4.5 magnificent stars from me.
