Blake “Murphy” O'Callaghan, Road Captain of the Lost Kings MC, has the world by the balls. Everything he wants…except the one girl who’s off limits. The only girl he’s ever loved. His best friend’s little sister, Heidi.
Now that she’s eighteen, it’s time to claim her as his. Problem is, she’s in love with her high-school boyfriend, Axel, a prospect for the Lost Kings MC.
Can Murphy convince Heidi that all the hard roads they’ve traveled lead to their happy ending, or is he destined to ride the open road alone?

Favorite Quotes:



He's been waiting for your birthday like a fat kid waiting for Girl Scout cookie season. 

This was new and unfamiliar.  Weird and awful, but her words also warmed me from the inside out.

It's not until right this second that I think about how odd it is that Rock sort of adopted us the way he did.  How as a kid, I felt safer around a group of hardened bikers than with my own mother.

Your little fingerprints have been all over my heart since the day we met.

Yeah, it was your personality that made me love you but your hot bod that made me thank God we weren't actually related.



My Review:


While reading More Than Miles, I found was frequently frustrated and annoyed with the characters, as well as the author for torturing them so.  The main characters, most particularly bratty Heidi and smirking Axel, made one poor choice after another and were often far from likable.   Yet, I could not stop reading.  The storyline kept me engaged, despite my irritation and the characters' blind stubbornness.  The writing was observant, highly emotive, and angsty, with clever hits of humor and delicious steam.  I am devoutly team Murphy, and his narration often squeezed my cold heart and stung my eyes.  It was gratifying to see the eventual maturation of the characters as the story progressed with an ever twisting and active plot.  I also enjoyed the continuation of previous storylines and catching up with the myriad of unique and quirky characters.  Regardless of Ms. Lake's tendency to torment her characters, I find I am already eager for the next installment.
