REVIEW - Lawless In Leather (New York Saints #3) by Melanie Scott
Release Date: 5 May 2015
Reina Easton never expected to be training a cheerleading squad for a baseball team. But the owner of the building where her burlesque club is housed is threatening to sell, and she needs to get a deposit together.
Malachi Coulter can't believe that Alex Winters wants cheerleaders for their team. When he meets Reina, he can't deny his attraction… He's just not sure that Reina's wild ways are what he's looking for. Reina isn't thrilled about finding herself attracted to a guy like Mal, ex-army, motorcycle, security, tough guy.
When a crazed fan starts causing trouble, Mal is pulled in two directions. He wants to shut the squad down but Reina wants the money. Can a former bad boy and a former bad girl team up to win the day or are they just destined to strike out?
My Opinion 5 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and St Martin's Press, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
Mal is the one owner of The Saints that has been more elusive in both of the previous books. Less information was given about him and so we get it all in this book.
Mal is a serious kind of guy, but he knows how to have fun, however he has a very protective streak and a wish to help save the world, hence his army days.
Raina is an ex professional dancer who now owns a Burlesque club and has been hired to train dancers for the interval for The Saints. It is quite clear from the beginning that there is a serious amount of lust between them, but as Raina is a straight forward person, she tackles the situation head-on.
A series of events propel Mal and Raina together, where they eventually give into their lust finding more in each other than they realised they wanted, but also having to compromise a little here and there.
I found that this series got better and better as the books came out and really enjoyed reading them. I do hope however that some of the other characters in the series get some HEA's with a novella of their own.
