A knife that cut too deep, a slash that still burns, failures piled high and flammable. I held my losses at bay with knives, with guns, my hands, my bike, my brothers, my iron will.
But not my heart. No, my heart was the flame that would light the match, ignite the blaze.
I am the enforcer The killer when called upon, the ruthless hound on demand, the one who cleans the mess left behind. The protector I can make you bleed, Smash you to pieces. But she smashed all my excuses, and I shattered hers. For a split second she was mine, but I will always be hers.
Some things, really beautiful things, you can’t hold onto forever.

Series: Lock & Key #3
Also by this author: Random & Rare (Lock & Key, #2), Blood & Rust, Fury

Book 3 in the Lock & Key series. These books do have a series story arc and in my opinion you really need to have read books 1 & 2 to enjoy Iron & Bone to its fullest.

Unusually for me I am at a loss for words. My usual MO at this point is to give you an overview of the story and pose questions that will make you want to pick up the book and find the answers for yourself. This truly is a book that I can’t do that with. I will refer only to the synopsis that Ms Porter has provided and if you read that, you will like me head into this book fairly blind as to the direction it will take. I have no intentions of spoiling that for you. The beauty of this book, indeed this series is that you never quite know the pathway that the author is going to lead you down.

This is Boner’s story, and man what a story it is. I am not letting the cat out of the bag by telling you that this is also Jill’s story, as we have witnessed a growing attraction between them since her arrival. The story itself starts very soon after the conclusion of R&R and with Jill now living in Meager and carrying Lock and Grace’s baby, she becomes part of club through default.

The story takes us into Boner’s past, which continues to haunt him, dictating his life so many years later. Added to that, you get a glimpse into how the loss of Dig and then Grace effected a man so damaged by loss already. The pull he feels towards Jill is undeniable, but one that he is determined to keep at arms length; until his hand is forced. Will he be able to bury the past to move forward into the future with his Firefly?

If you didn’t already love Boner, then this book will seal it for you. Hard as bone on the outside but as soft as molten iron in the middle. His loyalty is his weapon of choice, but don’t break it or he might break you. His moments with Jill will leave you needing a cold shower, whilst his interactions with Becca will make you swoon.

Everything about this book says 5 crowns. The writing is superb, the atmospheric words and the flow of the story are just amazing. This author can write, make no mistake about it. The web of a story she has weaved is just EPIC.

If you are a fan of MC romance this is an absolute MUST READ. It is one of my favourite series in this genre. But more than that I am a huge fan of the style of writing that flows from Cat Porter’s fingertips. If you want EPIC, I can’t recommend this series enough.

Shhhh… I hear Butler’s story calling 😉
