The only remaining single member of the Bayou Devils MC, Travis Broussard, refuses to fall in love. His brothers may have found happiness but with his dark past still haunting him, he can’t afford to let any woman get too close.
Rowan Archer has had her fair share of heartbreak, but after the sudden loss of her mother and finding her boyfriend in bed with another woman, she reaches her breaking point and moves across the country to be closer to her brother in Baton Rouge.
One drunken night and the need for a temporary relief bring two broken hearts together. Sparks ignite between Travis and Rowan but it can’t last. It’s clear there is no future for them and they each agree to keep things casual but you know what they say about best laid plans.
Someone begins to target the club, tormenting them in a sick little game of cat and mouse as he makes promises of pain and bloodshed in the name of revenge and Travis’s past catches up to him when he least expects it, forcing him to make a choice.
Saving those he loves means pushing Rowan away but Travis has no other option with the dark threat looming over all of their heads.

Wicked Games is eighth and final book in the Bayou Devils MC series. Each is a stand alone with its own couple but is best read in order because there is continuing background story that comes to a finish in this book. This is one of my favorite MC romance series. Each member has a dark past and experience with violence that guides them in the mission of the Bayou Devils–helping women escape abusive partners.
Wicked Games tells the story of Travis “Streak” Broussard and Rowan Archer, whose big brother Lincoln Archer, is a member of the Bayou Devils. His story is Every Breath You Take. Rowan has suffered a lot of heartbreak, most recently the sudden loss of her mother, and after finding her boyfriend in bed with another woman, she packs up her life and moves across the country to be with her brother in Baton Rouge. Travis or Streak has a dark past haunting him and does not believe he can fall in love. Both agree to keep things casual but love has different plans.
This book blew me away. Someone has been targeting the club throughout the series and everything comes to a head in Wicked Games and man, do things go out with a bang! I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book trying to figure out who it was targeting the club and when it was finally revealed, man was I shocked! Such an amazing twist!
This book was amazing, suspenseful, and filled with love and steaminess. Despite their insistence that their relationship was casual, the bond between Travis and Rowan was clear from the start. Travis was so sexy and swoon worthy, he so clearly loved Rowan, his actions spoke so loudly, despite his words and belief that he couldn’t fall in love because of tragic events in his past. My heart broke for both Rowan and Travis, they both have suffered loss and gone though a lot but came out on the other side. Rowan was so strong and resilient, picking up her entire life despite being knocked down one too many times.
This book was astounding. The writing was incredible and the author crafted a fantastic mystery that just sucks you right in. The book is actually told from 3 POVs: the hero, heroine, and the person targeting the club which just added another dimension to the mystery and suspense. I highly recommend this book, especially if you’re a fan of MC romances.
