Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, something extraordinary comes along that knocks you on your ass…
I’m a simple man with simple values. You either love me or you hate me, but the ones who need me, always got me. I’m the self-proclaimed Wolf of the Satan’s Knights MC, the beast who will fight his way out of any dark alley to defend your honor. The brother you call upon when you’ve lost your faith in humanity.
However, secrets and lies are the cancer of a man’s soul. Exposed, they will eat away all that is good and leave nothing but destruction in their wake. They’ll prove the best intentions sometimes fail and leave you questioning your life’s choices.
Now, searching for a purpose, I find myself facing the ride of my existence with a woman just as jaded as me. As she fights the biggest battle of her life, I want to be the man who stands by her side. The man who ain’t afraid to ride the edge of misery because he knows there is something beautiful on the other side…
I’ve prevailed against the mob, a deadbeat ex-husband and the woes of being a single mother. While someone else may have wished for a different life, I believe I’m stronger for everything I’ve endured. I’m someone who speaks her mind and fights for what is right. A woman who will smack you upside the head with a frying pan and ask questions later.
Terrified of love, I’m an otherwise fearless woman.
Until a doctor solemnly diagnoses me and my strength falters.
Now as fear engulfs me, an unexpected man dressed in leather, holds out his hand.
As a woman who never needed anyone, I suddenly need him.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
RIDING THE EDGE is both a standalone and a spin-off from the Tempted series which features the Satan’s Knights MC and the Bianci family. You can read it as a standalone but I feel like you’d get more out of it if you read the entire series!
“Wolf” is basically the Godfather of the Satan’s Knights MC. He’s one of the “originals” who’s been with the MC for like thirty years. But after his son, Nico, was shot, he started to question his loyalty and his entire life in the Satan’s Knights. While he waits in the hospital for news about Nico, he finds himself turning to Maria Bianci for comfort. Maria (“Lady”) is a single mom to Anthony and Lauren (who we’ve meet in previous books) and though their grown adults with their own families, Maria is very close to them and takes pride in being a pillar of strength for her growing family. But she’s facing her own battle and now she may need to learn how to lean on someone else.
I’ll admit right off the bat that this book is my absolute favorite from Janine Infante Bosco! No spoilers, but I will say that I completely connected personally with both Wolf and Lady because of their situation and the obstacles they needed to overcome, which kind of shadows my own life right now. Yup, I cried like baby! But as with all of Ms. Bosco’s stories, there’s a simple and strong message that everyone can take away from this tale. I highlighted several awesome passages but here’s my favorite:
Wolf is one of my best-loved MC characters ever (And I don’t say that lightly since I’ve read several MC books!). He was crass, bold and sometimes downright vulgar but he had a huge heart, he was loyal to a fault, the embodiment of strength and when he gave his heart away, it was entirely. Excuse me while I SWOON! Again!
If you enjoy books that are angsty and dark with hot alphas and strong women, a book that is steamy and just might make you cry but also make you feel good then scoop this one up. I’ll add this book to my READ AGAIN E-SHELF and I can’t wait for the next episode! Told from dual POVs with a happy for now ending. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.
