Plum – Cate C. Wells

50874315. sy475
We’re from two different worlds, but in her arms, I’m home.

Plum

Life didn’t give me a silver spoon. It gave me tetanus. When Adam Wade walks into my club, I know I’m in trouble. His money I can handle. But sweet words, gentle hands? I don’t know what to do with that. Eventually, he’s gonna wise up and walk away. If I let him in, what’ll be left of me when he goes?

Adam

I’m the adopted son of the man who owns the city. I was born into nothing, and I’ve earned my seat at the table. But at night, when I can’t sleep, I’m haunted by the pieces of myself I’ve disowned to make it this far.

I don’t know why Plum caught my eye, but I can’t look away. Maybe it’s her brave face, her fight, her quirks. I’m obsessed, all-in with my eyes screwed shut. Then life throws a harsh light on our choices. I’m forced to face the ugly truth of what she’s done to survive–and what I’ll have to sacrifice to be with her.

Plum’s a fighter, but would she fight for us? And if I give up everything for her, who will I be?

Plum is a 68,000-word “opposites attract” romance set in the Steel Bones Motorcycle Club world. It takes place at the same time as Nickel’s Story. This novel is intended for adult readers (18+) due to strong language, violence, triggers, and explicit intimate scenes.

Standalone. HEA.

I’d like to thank Enticing Journey for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So I first read Scrap and really enjoyed that one and wanted to read some more of Cate’s books and didn’t get round to it although both Charge and Nickel are in KU.

So this took a bit of time to get into I really didn’t sink straight into this story, it took me a good 20% to get into it and even then I didn’t read it one sitting I kept putting the book down sometimes due to work sometimes not. I really enjoyed the writing and I love the Steel Bones MC world.

So we are thrown straight into this story with Plum who is a prostitute/stripper giving a blowjob to Eric who is in the club with his step-brother Adam and then a fight begins when Eric refuses to pay her for swallowing. Adam defends Eric and then curiosity begins for Plum. Adam and her soon begin to get to know each other and we quickly get introduced to the real Plum, Jo-Beth. And we get taken on a crazy little ride which I enjoyed.

I really love the connection that Adam and Jo-Beth had they were so cute together and I really enjoyed the chemistry these characters had together. I also love that Jo-Beth wasn’t that intimidated by all his money and was still willing to call bullshit when it came to dealing with Adam. I did love how Adam was all confused by his feelings for Jo-Beth and even though he knew what her job was he still wanted to be around her. I loved that.

Adam and Eric really different kettle of fish. I have to admit at the beginning of this book I really judged Eric to be just like his father and thankfully by the end of this book I was proved wrong and I love that I was proved wrong about it. Because he really did like Adam and wanted to build a company together and I just love that he was willing to stand by his step-brother as his family turned their backs on them.

Another thing I loved is when Adam did fuck up their relationship just like we expected him too. The grovelling he had to do to get Jo-Beth back was so great. I love that she made him work for it and didn’t instantly forgive him.

One thing that I was surprised by was we learnt Adams biological father was also in the Steel Bones. I love that eventually we have both Adam and Gus bonding with each other and it’s cute.

Also I am really wanting a Heavy book please? I really liked him and I loved how much he cared for Jo-Beth whilst she was around the clubhouse.

I really enjoyed reading this and I will still be heading to dive into Charge and Nickel’s books because I do love this world.
