Title: Rough & Raw
Series: Notorious Devils MC #2
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 2016
Brentlee Johnson-Corbin has always followed her mother’s rules, even when it meant marrying a man she knew wasn’t her happily-ever-after.


Bates “Sniper” Lukin, a retired marine, now rides with the Notorious Devils—his street name earned in the deserts of hell.
When the most precious part of Brentlee’s world is threatened by the man who was meant to love them, she escapes to the only safe place she knows. But when she seeks the shelter of her sister, Kentlee, and her husband, Fury, her past steps in—and he’s determined to protect Brentlee and her daughter as his own.
Their story is one of love discarded, but Sniper won’t waste this opportunity to right the wrongs of his past.
Life has been cruel to them both, and Brentlee is certain that the love they lost is gone forever; but under his protective wing, she can’t deny that this rough and raw man might be just the hope she needs.

Review by Lisa for Two Feisty Angels and A Devil Blog

Rough and Raw was the first book that I’ve read from Hayley Faiman, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This is the second book in the series, Notorious Devils MC #2. Obviously the books can be read as a standalone – however, I will tell you that I plan to read the first book in the series because I enjoyed this book so much. A MC book is a MC book right? Wrong! This story was unlike any other I have read. The storyline was so different – it grabbed me from the first words in the book. I was hooked. Brentlee met Bates when she was super young – teenage young – he was a bit older. Old enough to leave her to join the Marines. Although Brentlee offered to wait for him, Bates wouldn’t allow this. He felt she needed to live her life and enjoy every moment of it. Bates did join the Marines and as he retired, he joined the Notorious Devils. He always thought of Brentlee as the one he lost. Brentlee did get married and have a child but her life was anything but picture perfect. Her husband was abusive. When she made the decision to leave – she went to the Notorious Devils for help ( you’ll read why during the story). What she didn’t imagine was Bates “Sniper” Lukin coming to the rescue. Not only did he rescue Brentlee but also her daughter Stella. I LOVED Stella – I immediately fell in love with her! Bates became the protector over these two! Brentlee was so afraid of her husband finding her and killing her. Will he find her? What will happen? The suspense keeps you swiping the pages as quickly as you can! Will Bates reconnect with Brentlee and give her the picture perfect life? Come on people, this is a MC book! Sheesh! You are going to have drama with a capitol D. 4 Stars from me!

I received a complimentary copy of Rough and Raw in exchange for an honest review. Can’t wait to read Rough and Rowdy as it’s the first book in this series!
