#LoveMeSomeRetro
Synopsis
 
“Got your back,” is more than a saying in Retro’s world.
Standing united as a club is a given, and loyalty is held as a standard of
brotherhood. Forgiveness for transgressions, however, does not come easily, or
ever in some cases. Retro’s only demand for his brothers is honor and
integrity, and his belief is that everything else will fall into place behind
those qualities. He is not wrong.
In the rough realm of bikers, there are no shortcuts to win a
place among the old guard. It’s a world where respect can only be earned, trust
is painfully gained, and loyalty will be fiercely returned.
Jerry Rogers lived his life bound to those firm tenets which
anchored his brotherhood. MHL&R was more than a patch on a leather cut, it
ran thick as blood through Retro’s veins as he worked to better things for his
club, and family.
Locked for years in a loveless marriage, Retro still found a
sense of pleasure and peace knowing he’d at least always done his best to
buffer their children from his single mistake.
Confronted by evidence that what happened in the past wouldn’t
remain quietly buried any longer, Retro embarks on what might become his most
important journey down memory lane. One that can only end in blood…and death.

EXCERPT

Beginning

Jeremiah Rogers angled his body away from the other person in
the room, shifted his gaze to the window, and caught sight of the reflection of
his own face. Gaunt and aged in ways he hadn’t been a year ago, he stared into
the echo of his eyes.
Without turning, he said, “I can’t offer an excuse, because
there isn’t one. I won’t insult you by saying it never meant anything, because
you know how I am. You’ve always known how I felt about her. She…” Here he
paused, at a loss for words for so long his soon-to-be ex-wife stirred
restlessly, the fabric of her jeans making a shirring noise as her legs crossed
and re-crossed. The mattress groaned softly, a sound that had often been heard
in this room in years past, and one that made guilt dig its hooks a little
deeper into him because it had masked their lie.
Her silence drove him forwards. At this point, they’d been
talking so long he was ready to just have it over with. “I knew when I took you
to my bed we’d wed. Your father wouldn’t have allowed anything less. I also—”
He turned and saw her tear-streaked face looking at him out of the shadows.
They’d been talking so long the sunset had stripped the color from the room,
leaving everything in banded shades of gray and beige. He swallowed and pushed
ahead, needing to have all the secrets laid bare. “I also know you didn’t love
me then. We’ve made it work all these years, because neither of us wanted
more.” Retro shook his head. “I’m no longer content to live this way.”
“What’s changed?”
“You know what’s changed, Wanda.” She was smart, and he
suspected she’d already put two-and-two together. He was done living like this,
forcing himself through the days and avoiding the nights. Her lack of follow-up
on her question told him he was right.
“What about our kids, Jerry? How will we tell them?”
At her words, he pulled in the deepest breath he’d taken in
days, because with two sentences she’d aligned herself at his side. She knew
the lay of the land. She’d always known they weren’t a love match. It was one
of the things that made her so bitter towards his brother Isaiah, because he’d
found his love. Gone now for too many years, but Isaiah had kept his Hope’s
love alive in how he was raising their children. Wanda had tried to drive a
rift between the brothers over it. Unsuccessfully.
“Nelda won’t be surprised.” Their daughter was always putting
together unexpected puzzles, and from the sadness she’d borne in the past
months, Jerry knew Nelda had seen how he’d been pulling away from her mother.
“Boys will follow her lead.” He lifted his hands and scrubbed across his face.
“I never meant—”
“You’re not the only one to stray, Jerry.” Wanda’s declaration
took him by surprise and his palms were still pressed to his cheeks as he
jerked and looked at her. “I haven’t been happy for years.”
His blood started to boil and he dropped his fists to his
hips, staring down his nose at her for a moment. Then he laughed once, a
humorless bark of noise meant to keep him from saying things best left unsaid,
and he turned back to the window, their dimmed and blurred reflections now
highlighted by a deep blackness. “Since it all happened years before you came
to my bed, I wouldn’t actually classify it as strayin’, Wanda. Can you say they
were important to you at least?” He’d had suspicions once or twice, but Wanda
had been so…blameless. Every time he’d thought to bring up the idea of
separating, just the look on her face would seal his lips.
“One was.” She gave him that, and then he saw her reflection
move, shifting to the opposite side of the bed. She slowly stood and then
waited for a moment, and when he didn’t turn, told the room, “I’m going to
start supper.”
Surreal.

Lita T’s Review: 4 Stars

Trapped by Fate On Reckless Roads (Neither this, Nor that #4) by Marialisa deMora is Retro’s story. He is the President of the Bama Bastards. We have met him in not only in the Neither this, Nor that series but also from the Rebel Wayfarers. Tired of his loveless marriage to the mother of his children he has decided to call it quits. His children are his life but he knows he and them deserve better. One night at a strip club he finds Katrina aka Trina coming out of a room in tears. Retro is instantly mesmerized by her and intends to make her his ole lady. Trina  is a sweet girl who is just trying to live her life while taking care of her mother. A cute tale about their budding relationship, Retro
being a father as well as the head of a MC and a past that rears it’s ugly head. I have mixed feelings regarding the story. Loved the mixing of the different MC’s and the characters from the author’s previous books. Loved Retro to pieces. He is a good man, very sexy , smooth talker and his long hair makes me swoon. And the topper is he is the ultimate father. This story was the best out of the previous books. My problem was there were some secrets that were revealed in the story which were addressed in a way that had me scratching my head. It was like the issue was left out there.In spite of that fact I really enjoyed Retro and Trina. Am curious as to where the author will go next with the next book. Kinda left in a lurch. A 4 star read for me.

Author Bio
Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an

early age. Every summer, she would spend hours in the local library,

devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she

says “I’ve always loved to read, but then I discovered writing, and

found I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available,

I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.”

A hockey fan, hiker, gamer, and single mom of a special needs son, she

embraces her inner geek and has been working in the tech field for a

publishing company for a couple decades.

Music is a driving passion, and she says, “I love music of nearly any

genre — jazz, country, rock, alt rock, metal, classical, bluegrass, rap,

hip hop … you name it, I listen to it. I can often be seen dancing

through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live

music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars

[read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection

of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”
