Flamed With Courage (Cash Bar Series) by Hayley Faiman

Title: Flamed With Courage
Series: A Cash Bar Novel
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: August 20, 2018

Whitley’s main goal in survival is to stay unnoticed. A shadow against a wall, and nothing else. 

Taken by a Notorious Devil in the midst of chaos, she’s no longer unseen. 

Free, Vice President of the Devils has lived a lifetime of guilt. It consumes him, threatens to control him with every breath he takes. 

He was resigned to a lifetime of paying his penance for the past. At least, until he sees her. 

Scared, threatened, and young. She is his chance to lessen his guilty conscious—to protect an innocent.


*Recommended for readers 18+ due to Violence, Language, and Sexual Content.

My Review: 3 1/2 *
All though this was not my favorite MC Romance book ever it was not the worst either. The story in the book was pretty good. I did have a problem with the way Free, the main man, treats Whitley the leading lady. This girl has basically been held hostage and has seen more in 3 years than most people will ever see in a full lifetime. Free "rescues" Whitley from the racist Aryan group. This group sees woman as breeders only. Free pretty much treats Whitley as his personal sex toy. He leaves her pretty much locked in his room with no food or water at first. Things like that started to turn me off about this book. There is also a pretty good story but you have to get past all the sex to read it. Yes i knew going into this book that there was lots of sex, language and violence. None of which really bother me but there are full chapters of sex and a few pages of the story line. I have to admit towards the middle of the book I was skipping over the sex scenes, they were hot scenes but I wanted to get back to the story line. I did really like all of the characters in the book, even when I was mad at Free. 

There are actually a couple story lines at least for me in the book. Eighteen years ago Free's woman Gemma was beaten and raped. She became addicted to sleeping pills and ended up killing herself. Free's guilt has eaten away at him for almost 2 decades. The Notorious Devil's MC which Free is the VP of, are going around and destroying the camps of the Aryan group. When he see's Whitley he takes her with him instead of sending her with the other woman and children from the camps to shelters. Free just has a feeling that Whitley will bring him back to life and help him past his past. 

Whitley's parents were killed 3 years before when she was 16 and she was taken to the Aryan camps and forced to watch the children and also help int he sick sex between the leaders and the kidnapped woman. She has seen so much murder, abuse, and yet has not been touched. She counts her blessings about being left alone, she also has learned to be a shadow, out of site out of mind. After being rescued by Free, Whitley begins to feel like she may just be able to have a life not filled with fear.

You get to watch both Free and Whitley heal and find love in the book.

I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard.

Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we're raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
