Point of Freedom (Nordic Lords MC, #3) by Stacey Lynn

She experienced the gut wrenching pain of grief after her boyfriend, Scratch, a member of the Nordic Lords MC, died on the same night that she told him they were going to have a child.

When her childhood friend, Olivia needs her, Jules realizes it’s time to return home and give her daughter what she wants most – a family.
But Jules didn’t count on the tumultuous emotions she would feel around Scratch’s brooding and angry brother, Jaden.
Jaden has vowed to never forgive Jules for, what he feels is her role his brother’s death. Being face to face with Jules again, who is now a mother to a young child, he finds that his anger hasn’t waned and swears to have nothing to do with mom or child.
But how can he reconcile the burning fury in his soul with the irrational urge to touch her? To taste her? To own her completely?
Can wounded hearts that still bleed ever be healed? And can two people broken by their pasts find freedom from their pain in each other?
Or will a night of passion destroy them both?

Book 3 in the seriously awesome Nordic Lords MC series. Every characters book is a standalone story, however I cannot recommend each book in this series highly enough. You will get backgrounds on each of the characters and club action, enriching the storyline of Point Of Freedom.
So we have at last come to Jaden and Jules story. Their story has been brewing since book one and I have seriously looked forward to getting the inside scoop on their history and the obvious tension that is between them. What did Jules do that has made Jaden hate her, so much so that he won't even acknowledge his own niece?
Jules is back in Jasper Bay with her daughter Sophie after leaving the town following the death of her childhood sweetheart Scratch. Her return is mixed blessings. First and foremost she is back to help out an old friend, but she is also running from an ex, who's true colours slowly appeared in violent ways. Having now escaped from the problems of the present, she finds herself faced with the difficulties of the past. That problem being Jaden, member of the Nordic Lords and brother to Scratch. Jaden hates her with such an intensity that he ran her out of town, away from her family and the club that had become her second home; all whilst being young, pregnant and mourning the only man she had ever loved.
Jaden is eaten up with bitterness when it come to Jules. Devastated by the death of his beloved brother in a motorcycle accident several years before, he has spent the intervening years blaming Jules for Scratch's mindset at the time of his death. As far as he is concerned she is a cheating whore who should be treated as such. As for her daughter, how can he even be sure that Scratch is the father. It should all be so easy except for one thing; the lingering feelings he himself has for Jules and the hurt he still carries that she picked his brother all those years ago and not him.
When Jules and Sophie's safety is threatened, will Jaden step up to be the Uncle he needs to be for Sophie? and will escalating emotions on both sides finally bubble over and turn into passion?
Oh god, how I love this series. Every book that Stacey has gifted us with is just bloody brilliant. The characters she has created within this club are absolutely superb and stand up against the best and most well known characters in this genre. I have to say though that Jaden and Jules are my favourites so far! They are real poles apart at the start of this story and Stacey takes them on a real journey of accepting their pasts and moving forward to find a happy future where they can at least become friends. Both have made mistakes in the past and both have worries about whether the feelings they have are coming from the right place and not just a way of them replacing Scratch.
This book has the perfect balance I expect in a MC read. It has club action, an extreme alpha male(s) and a whole lot of steam. But you know what? When I think about this book in retrospect, the word that immediately comes to mind is...Romance! I don't mean in the slushy sense. I mean in the whole building of sexual tension, the hidden love that manifested into hate and their shared guilt that somehow they are doing something taboo. They heal each other and what they create is pure and very HOT!!
Well done Stacey, once again you have created my perfect read. Each book is beautifully written and the attention you give to character development is first class. You raise the bar on each book in this series, which gives me tingles of excitement just thinking about Finn's book.
For MC Romance fans this series is an absolute must read!!
