Alpha MC Prez Jaeger Dalton wants the land that was promised to him.
Sassy Phoenix Ward isn't about to let anyone take Freedom Run away from her.
He’ll protect what’s his.
She’ll protect what’s hers.
Jaeger is an arrogant ass, but he wants nothing more than Phoenix.
Phoenix is stubborn and headstrong, and she wants Jaeger out of her life.
Her father lost the family farm to gambling debts, but Jaeger isn't the only one who has a claim to the property.
Sometimes it’s best to let things go.
But sometimes it’s better to fight until the very end.

This was my first time reading Margaret McHeyzer and I thought this was a good story.

Jaeger is a former homeless teen turned underground fighter turned president of the Hunters MC. During one particular fight, Jaeger noticed a young woman with flaming red hair, but she was gone before he could meet her, but he's thought about her for five years.

Phoenix has just lost her father in a car accident when she's confronted with a dangerously sexy man who keeps saying that the farm she's inherited is no longer hers, in fact, her father had gambled it away. The situation goes from bad to worse for Nix when a rival MC club shows up to claim something else Nix's father promised before his death. 

Jaeger has pretty much decided that Nix is his, even though she fights him every step of the way. The chemistry between them is great, even when they're arguing, which seems to happen pretty regularly during the first half of the book. The best part of the book is how clueless Jaeger is when it comes to women; he has absolutely no filter and it is hilarious to read what comes flying out of his mouth at warp speed. He's all badass and clueless at the same time. Right up until the end, he's clueless.

But note, there's more to this story than just the romance; there's also deception, a traitor, kidnapping and brutal assaults. Everything works out in the end for everyone involved (well, except for the traitor). I liked the way it wrapped up, and although it seems like this is a standalone, I would like to see a book on Sarge and Milina.
