Creed: Fallen Angel's MC is a romance novel written by Erin Trejo. The past ten years of Creed’s life had been a blessing, living next door to twins Jada and Jason who both mean the world to him. He has watched Jada grow and blossom into a beautiful woman, while having his best friend, Jason, close at all times. After telling Creed that Jada is strictly ‘hands off’ in all respects, Jason is tragically killed in a car accident. Jada mourns deeply for the loss of her brother and seeks solace in Creed, who equally feels her pain. Hoping to drown out the emotional pain, the two make love, before Creed feels guilt at having betrayed Jason’s wishes. He leaves town, and becomes a loyal member of the Fallen Angel’s Motorcycle Club. Years later, Jada walks into the club house, offering herself to anybody who would have her. The abuse she had suffered after Creed had left is absolutely horrific, and she is now bound to rival motorcycle club member, Kenny, who talks with his fists, fills her with drugs, and offers her to friends for fun. When Jada overdoses yet again and returns to him covered in bruises, Creed vows to keep her safe, but when Kenny hunts her down, all club members question their allegiance, as a bloodbath between the two clubs is the only possible outcome.
As a biker, I found Erin Trejo’s tale to be quite realistic when it comes to the code between the brothers of a motorcycle club. The closeness of the three friends at the beginning of the tale is quite touching and heartwarming, and I was able to feel Jada and Creed’s immense loss of somebody they'd loved and respected so deeply. The book moves at a good pace, as does the adrenaline-pumping action, whether through Creed’s activities in his own club or with the rivalry the Fallen Angels have with Kenny’s club. Although there is quite a lot of profanity, suspense and action in Creed, the perfect amount of humor is injected throughout with perfect timing. Both of the main characters are emotional train wrecks, quick to derail when tempers flare. Creed delivers a story packed with punch, and shows a well-rounded view of the many different types of bikers found in motorcycle clubs across the world, with Jada’s boyfriend, Kenny, being lower than a snake’s belly in all respects, while most members of the Fallen Angels show no tolerance to violence against women. I enjoyed Erin Trejo’s book of motorcycle mayhem, and believe that, with a slight polish, it will do well with readers over the age of 18 years who enjoy fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping suspense, action, drama, humor, loyalty and love in their romance reading.
