Authors: Chelsea Camaron and Jessie Lane
Release Date: December 8, 2014
BlurbShe's an investment banker. He's an outlaw biker. A little bit of heaven is about to meet a whole lot of hell. Morgan Powell was raised to be perfect, to set an example for her sisters to follow. Her life has been dedicated to making something of her career, so she wouldn’t know what to do with a man even if you gave her an instruction manual. Brett 'Ice' Grady spends his days trying to keep up with his teenage daughter, his nights consumed in Regulators’ MC business. He has no time for anything more than a casual hookup. Two worlds collide when the dangers of his life crash into the calm of hers. Can she go beyond her own boundaries and chip her way through to the man known to be as cold as ice? Loosely attached to Chelsea Camaron's Hellions Series and Jessie Lane's Ex Ops Series.
Ice PlaylistIce Playlist Ice’s playlist is filled with hard rockin’ songs that we feel represent the rugged men of the Regulators Motorcycle Club. These guys may be rough and tumble, but deep down they’re the type of men that would fight to the death for their woman. Chelsea Camaron’s Songs: Evanescence - Lost In Paradise Thirty Seconds to Mars - Hurricane - This is the lifestyle of The Regulators MC (would you kill to save a life, would you kill to prove you are right are some of the lyrics). Don Omar, Tego Calderon - Bandoleros - Tied up in a world with the Cuban Mafia. Three Days Grace - Give Me A Reason Halestorm - Better Sorry than Safe Staind - Something to Remind You Three Days Grace - Home Three Days Grace - I Hate Everything About You - When Morgan first meets Ice he's an ass. The first few times they are around each other there isn't love shared between them. Jessie Lane’s Playlist: Otherwise - Darker Side of the Moon Hellyeah – Moth – How I see Ice’s slow burning infatuation with the innocent Morgan. Starset - My Demons Nonpoint - Breaking Skin Devour the Day – Respect - Ice isn’t the sort of man who would trust easily. You’d have to earn that sort of respect by showing him just what sort of person you are. A pushover would never be able to hold the position he holds in the Regulators MC. Demon Hunter - The Last One Alive – Ice has personal demons that follow him in the form of his dead wife. He’s a haunted man.
Excerpt 3 (581 words):
Parking my bike on the edge of the road, I hop off with Hammer and Coal following suit.
They don’t bother asking questions, because my reason for coming here is obvious as we make
our way into a house full of drunken teens.
Walking inside like I own the place, I see kids in every corner, making out. The sight makes
my blood boil. If I find some little dipshit with his hands all over my baby girl, it is going to take
both Hammer and Coal to keep me from beating the shit out of him. I don’t care if they are
teenagers; no little prick is good enough to touch Brooke.
I glance into the formal dining room to my left, and someone has one very expensive table
that seats eight, making a perfect set up for beer pong. Jesus, this is the nightmare of every
parent. If I see one kid doing any drugs, my head is going to explode.
“Brooke,” I call out. “Brooklyn Rayne Grady, get your ass out here… Right. The. Fuck.
Now!” I roar without a second thought.
All the teens stop and stare at me and my brothers filling up this ostentatious entryway.
When nobody moves, Coal steps up to be right behind me on the left.
“Brooke, find her now,” Coal clips out, giving his cold glare to every teen in the room.
At the top of the stairway, I watch my daughter meet Coal’s gaze without one ounce of
trepidation. Baby girl is showing balls of steel for her friends. Her short as sin shorts make my
blood pressure shoot up even higher. The camisole tank top that I bought to go with pajamas is
far from hiding her buds from all these teen pricks.
“Dad—” she starts as I interrupt.
“Don’t say another fucking word. Get your ass on my bike.”
“Death of you,” Hammer chuckles behind me as he turns around to get ready to leave.
Yes, my daughter will be the death of me. I watch as she grabs her friend by the wrist and
half drags her down the stairs, mumbling at her the whole way down. When the two girls reach
me, I don’t move.
“Come on, Dad,” Brooke lets out a huff. “Let’s go. This is embarrassing enough already.”
“Everybody here, you have twenty minutes to get this house cleaned the fuck up. Since you
dumb shits have been drinking, a bus will be here to pick each one of you up and take you home.
My man Coal here is gonna stay behind and make sure you do as I say.”
“Daaaad,” Brooke whines, “leave everyone alone.”
“Brooke, I suggest you shut your mouth and get your ass over to my bike. If your friend
needs a ride, Hammer will take her. Outside. Now. You’re in enough trouble, don’t add more.”
Defeated, the two girls stomp off while Hammer shakes his head at me while I turn to follow
them all out. I haven’t even made it to the door when I hear some pre-pubescent shithead slur out
“Do you think they are, like, real biker dudes? Maybe we can ask them to pop a wheelie or
something. WAIT!” His voice cracks as he gets excited. “Maybe they’re from that show on TV!
We should ask for their autographs!’
God save me from teenagers. No doubt, Hammer is cussing me out in his head for sticking
one on his bitch seat.
I really enjoyed this book, so much so, I read it twice. The collaboration of these two authors worked very well together!
What can I tell you about Ice??!!
What a man!! Biker, devoted & caring father, staunch businessman & just a downright direct man. He never minces his words.... I really loved him!! Some of the things that came out of his mouth was so damn good!! His words are gold!! Lol.
Morgan, caring sister & kick ass woman! I really admired her especially after her strange upbringing! What awful parents to her & her 2 sisters! Would have driven anyone mad!! What happens in this book shows us what an incredibly strong woman she is!
If you love biker books with a twist then you will definitely love reading this! It has Some rather graphic scenes but that doesn't matter as much as how the whole gang gets along , the biker brothers and their women folk!! They are a family and they look after their own!!
I cannot wait to read more in this series and look fwd to finding out about the other characters, especially Hammer & Coal! It will be great to get some insight into their lives!
Well done ladies!!
Let me say first that this isn't your ordinary MC book. Yes it had bikes, it has hot guys with muscles. However it has bad ass mofo's too. All these men seem to be ex military and still on a mission.
This is my first read by Jessie and to tell the truth it won't be my only. I am a fan of Chelsea and have been for a while now.
We meet Ice who is a single dad to a teenage daughter. He is on top of his game with her and takes no shit from her. She has a rebellious friend who puts them in a hot spot though. Here is where Morgan comes in. She is prim and proper. Her parents conditioned her that way. Her other 2 sisters though they seemed to slip through the cracks. Her younger sister is how her and Ice come together.
At first you wouldn't think these two fit. She is so quick to put him in her place. He is quick to shoot down any feelings he might have for her. The way he does things she might not agree with. Their tension is so tight that you want to scream "come on already and just go at it will ya".
When I said this isn't your ordinary MC book you will see why. Yes there is sex, drugs and whatever comes with an MC you might think of. However like I said these guys are all ex military on a mission. Ice explains it. So when you see how strict Ice is with his daughter and how he goes to certain lengths before he allows her to spend time with anyone it will click.
Don't just take my word for it. Grab your copy today and get on the ICE train.

Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming. Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice. Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works. When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in. She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
