A fellow bookish friend strongly recommended Fearless and I now must pay it forward. Here's a brief list of reasons to read it:
1. It's well written and plotted...and sub-plotted.
2. The characters and their plights are interesting.
3. Lauren Gilley writes the south accurately and descriptively
4. It's both an epic romance and an odyssey of sorts.
5. Features a motorcycle club.
6. Has multiple povs.
7. Is nice and long and ties up all loose ends of the characters featured.
8. Has many other books in the series.
This just barely scratches the surface of why I wanted to speed read it and also never finish it. I should also note that as I was reading, I often thought that Kristin Ashley fans would really enjoy this novel, too.

From the author of the Walker Series comes a family drama like no other, a sprawling character epic, a forbidden love story full of angst, adventure, heartbreak, and second chances. Welcome to the mother chapter of the Lean Dogs Motorcycle Club; meet the girl raised by outlaws, and the fearsome man who will always hold her heart.
Ava Teague left for college with a busted heart and a deeply ingrained love for her biker family. She returns home to Knoxville for grad school, just in time for her father to accept the burden of president…and for Mercy Lécuyer to roll back into town, looking to patch into the Tennessee chapter once more. She’ll steer clear of him, she tells herself. She has a new life, a new boyfriend, and a new outlook. But she can’t shake her DNA. And maybe she doesn’t want to.
Felix Lécuyer left the swamps of Louisiana for a life as an outlaw biker named Mercy, but it was his family, and the retribution he dealt because of it, that made him famous within the club. Fourteen years ago he fled New Orleans for Knoxville, to become an extractor and bodyguard within the mother chapter, guarding Ghost Teague’s family, becoming a constant companion to little Ava. When she was seventeen, he finally crossed the line. Now she’s twenty-two, and he’s back in town as an old nemesis rears its ugly head, and puts the entire club in danger. The fate of the club is uncertain, but Mercy has no doubts about his heart; it still belongs to Ava.
Now available as a complete novel, Fearless launches a thrilling new series about the Lean Dogs of Tennessee, and the women tough enough to love them. Look for Book II, Price of Angels, coming March 2015.
