Point of Surrender (Nordic Lords MC, #4)
by Stacey Lynn
Debt. Guilt. Death.
Finn Walker has spent years carrying the weight of his regret and guilt with him wherever he went. When he found his home with the Nordic Lords Motorcycle Club, he quickly learned their outlaw lifestyle allowed him to banish his guilt with his fists and guns and no one would stop him. It was freeing, and now, he fits right in.
Friends with Ryker Knight for years, Meg McNeery turns to the one place she knows is safe when she needs safety more than her next paycheck. On the run from a man determined to receive payment for a debt he believes Meg owes, she knows the Nordic Lords Clubhouse in Minnesota is the only place where she and her five-year-old son, Brayden, will be safe.
What Meg doesn’t expect is her instant, magnetic attraction to Finn. And when her running ends with the three of them trapped together…it not only tests Meg’s physical self-control, but it also causes Finn to face his demons.
Finn has sworn he’d never get involved with another woman again, much less a woman with a child, but he can’t stop thinking about Meg, the blue-eyed angel who silences his nightmares.
When Finn’s past fears and present threats collide…will he finally be able to save the woman who needs him?
Or will Meg end up like his ex, Piper? Buried six feet under.
Book 4 in the brilliant Nordic Lords MC series. Each book can be read as a standalone as they each feature a different couple. However to get the most out of this awesome series and for character development, I suggest you read the series as a whole.
Finn Walker has been somewhat of an enigma in this series. A strong, loyal and reliable member of the Nordic Lords MC. Jasper Bay has become home after leaving Australia and his past behind him. This is Finn's story, it isn't pretty and he is a difficult and damaged man. It will take a special woman to break down his walls.
Meg has had a tough few years. Having lost her husband to an accident on an oil rig several years ago, Meg has been caring for her young son Brayden. With the help of friends of her husband, she as learnt to adapt to life as a single mother. To her shock though, Meg soon found out that her dead husband had been leading a double life. Addicted to gambling, Byron owed A LOT of money to local New Orleans gangster Maurice Moscoe. When the threats increase and threaten the safety of her son she knows it's time to seek help.
Turning to Ryker, her best friend and VP of the Nordic Lords. Meg finds herself fleeing to the safety of Minnesota. What she doesn't expect is to have a grumpy biker as her personal bodyguard. Finn Walker might be hot and he may have awakened something that she thought died alongside Byron, but her brain tells her he is definitely not the type of man that would be good for either her or Brayden. If only she could convince her body of that.
Finn Walker is not a happy man. He is a biker not a damn babysitter. Assigned to protect Meg and her son is not something he wants to do and it has nothing to do with the beautiful woman that has him tied up in knots. Finn hides a tragic past that continues to haunt him, effecting his relationships and his self esteem. Meg is too good for a man that destroys the people he should protect. He feels unworthy of something so perfect and fights the feelings that she stirs in him because of the reminders her and her son give him of events that left him destroyed and a shell of a man.
When Finn and Meg are thrown together will the lust and passion that lingers between them ignite? Will Meg get Finn to open up to her? and most importantly will Finn be able to protect and save her? Or will he destined to fail like he did so many years ago.
Point of Freedom (#3) was such an amazing book, I was seriously worried that Stacey Lynn had set the bar too high, that she would struggle to create a book as emotionally touching as Jaden and Jule's story. I would like to apologise wholeheartedly Stacey for doubting you - Point of Surrender is a bloody triumph. It has the perfect balance that I am coming to expect from Stacey's writing. The grit you expect from an MC book is there but she also adds these 3 dimensional characters that have a real, honest depth to them. The emotion Stacey has poured into the book washes over you throughout and it left me unable to put the book down.
Finn was a real surprise. Any fan of this series knows that beneath it all he is a good guy, just one that holds his cards close to his chest. His back story is tragic and the effect it has had on his life is heartbreaking. Meg is perfect for him. The emotions she brings out in him are beautiful given his damaged past and he in turn gives her a future that she thought she would never have after the death of her beloved husband. This is a beautiful story of 2 people who define themselves by the tragedies of the past but who ultimately fight to find a future together.
I believe this is the final book in this series and that makes me so sad. I have enjoyed every single minute spent in Jasper Bay with the Nordic Lords. Stacey has ensured it goes out with a bang though; if indeed the ride stops here. Another unmissable love story in a MUST READ series. Just Brilliant!
