I am that gash in her soul.
Once I loved Grace, really loved her.
And she loved me, and it was so fucking beautiful.
That pendulum swings to and fro.
and then we’re—
How can that rare beautiful be rendered irrelevant, intangible when I still feel so damn much?
Does all that energy, that glory, that significance simply dissolve?
Turn to smoke?
It can’t. It just can’t.
Are the moments that shape us absolutely random?
Is time not fluid?
I made promises to them, to her.
Especially to her.
Promises I still burn to keep
Sometimes you have to go backwards to move forward.
Random and Rare is just that. A series of moments and events seen from another side in a completely different light. Changing memories and deepening love both past and present. Not shedding a new light, but definitely adding a new perspective a crazy story.
Dig was a hard living, badass man with a heart I would not mind having a piece of. Seeing things through his eyes made him a completely different character than I had perceived from the prior book. He had conscience to him that we don’t see in all the bikers we read about. He broken my heart and made me love him over and over.
Please note: You should read Lock and Key, book 1. As Random and Rare is a prelude and an extension of the first book. I don’t think a read could truly appreciate what the story is without reading the first book.
A complimentary copy of this title was provided by the author/publisher for an honest review.
Review: Lock and Key by Cat Porter
Sixteen years ago I survived my old man’s murder
Never again will I surrender my heart.
Never again will I sacrifice to the Club.
But that all changed in one night.
I came home and crashed into him,
and my past and present blew up in my face.
Both of us lonely, running on empty, and unwilling to admit it.
Now I feel things I’d forgotten about, want things I’d cut out of my insides.
Love not only stings when you lose it, when it’s ripped away from you.
When it first sinks its teeth in you, it can cut just as raw and sting just as deep.
I’d forgotten that.
Who holds the keys to betrayal? To suspicion? To trust?
To brotherhood? To family?
To redemption and a bleeding heart?
Right now, I just might.
Grace, a.k.a. Little Sister, is the text book definition of a good old lady. Loyalty to her old man and the club, she knew when to talk,
to shut up, went to stand up for herself, and when to back off. The club was her life. Until tragedy struck the most devastating way, taking her old man and so much more. Grace walk away from not only her club but the life she knew. Almost 2 decades pass, another tragedy strikes. Grace is forced to return to her home for her sister. Returning home also means returning to the club. Grace learns that just because you walk away from the club does not mean you leave the club. Grace is considered the old lady of the old ladies. Loyalty and honor are bestowed upon her by all the men of the club. Grace is also reminded that when the club calls you answer.
Lock and Key is the story for all of us that wanted to truly know what it’s like inside a seasoned old lady head. To be brought into a new world, completely change your way of living, see and do some crazy fucked up shit, and live through it. All the while having the most crazy and passionate experiences of your life. To have a story come to you through someone who is not new to the lifestyle, going into it fully knowing what to expect and still does it. I find it funny that it’s always said that women are not part of the club. They’re only used as the clubwhores, to help out here and there, yes some have their old ladies but not part of the club. Lock and Key shows that women do you truly play a vital role within the club it’s just behind the scenes and kept under Lock and Key.
