Out from under by Selene Chardou

"I have always been strong, independent and wanted a life that belonged to me. It's the very reason why I chose to attend Stanford because it is away from the small-town life that seems more Twin Peaks than charming. Secrets are a dangerous commodity and Pine Bluff has them in spades. So do my parents, and the dirtiest secret of all is my brother, Trey. Sergeant at Arms for the Demon's Bastards, a criminal, a felon, and perhaps the catalyst for the tragedy that destroyed my life just days before I was supposed to leave for college.
"Now I am on the run because my life is in danger and I could be next. I don't want to live my whole life looking over my shoulder and I don't want to live my life shrouded in despair. Anxiety has me in a death grip, unable to let go. I pop Xanax to get through the day and were it not for my famous cousin, I would probably be dead already.
"My name is Trista Lennon, and I am tired of being afraid."
Linx Carter never thought he could help anyone when he could barely help himself. He is hanging on by a thread after a tough, six-month Gods of Rock Tour with his band, Winter's Regret, and Scarlet Fever. He has a greedy ex-wife, two sons and all he wants is to put the pieces of his life back together.
Linx knows there is something special about Trista from the moment they meet. She's wounded, in desperate need of a friend yet feminine, feisty and no one's charity case. She is the strongest woman he has ever known.
Through their friendship, they will find the strength to heal themselves and love one another but a feud between two gangs is brewing. Trista is caught in the crossfire, and by proxy, so is Linx. What they discover might not only cost them the love they have for one another but their lives too.
Due to mature subject matter, explicit language and adult situations, this novel is recommended for those over the age of 17.
 
My Review:
This is the first book in the Lovers Duet series and what a way to start it out.

This story is about bikers, MC clubs, family, and so much more.  I have never read a book about a biker gang before so this was all pretty new to me.  Selene does a wonderful job of diving right into this world.
Trista and her family are involved deeply in the MC world.  When a tragic accident sends Trista's whole world into a tumble.
Linx is a rock star who doesn't believe in love or happily ever after since his first marriage ended so bad.
 After he gets home from his latest tour and meets the lead singers younger cousin he decides to give love another shot.
I don't want to give to much away, but the hits just keep on coming.  Once you think you have it all figured out she takes it in a completely different direction.  I loved this book and can't wait for book 2.
