Welcome to Northern Nevada where three Motorcycle Clubs rule the Tri-Cities area.
Club life is all about money, fast bikes and faster women. Most importantly though is brotherhood. Trey Lennon knows he had it as a Demon's Bastard but now he is a Lucifer's Saint, his life seems like he's starting all over again.
Then she comes along.
Kyra Hughes.
The daughter of Jonesy Hughes, the President of the Demon's Bastards. The one woman Trey couldn't have as Demon's Bastard and the last person he should be attracted to as a Lucifer's Saints club member.  The two clubs have kept the peace between each other for a long time but Carlito Navarro has other plans. He is intent on destroying the cozy situation between the clubs to make way for Aztecas Infierno, the MC and cartel who has his lifelong allegiance. Now he's found the club's weak link, he's going to use it.
And burn it all to the ground.

Trey’s private quarters were clean and orderly to the point of obsession. His bed was made with classic military precision and there weren’t any clothes or shoes thrown about the room. He simply had a king-sized bed, fancy desk with a comfortable leather office chair, and a fifteen-inch MacBook Pro. I turned around and also viewed an oak drawer set with a thirty-six inch flat screen television, Blu-ray player, and speakers to amp the sound.
“Why don’t you sit on the bed and tell me what this is about?” he demanded loudly, snapping me out of my thoughts.
I’d judged this man all wrong. From the way he worked on motorcycles to his brilliance as a computer hacker, I assumed he’d be like most men I’d known my whole life. Grown up boys who were dirty, bathed when they remembered to, and weren’t great with housekeeping. This guy was the complete opposite - it made him an utter enigma.
I cleared my throat as I sat down on his perfect bed. I felt bad about rumpling the down comforter but he didn’t seem to mind as he sat next to me, completely calm and quiet. He crossed his arms against firm pecs that were clearly visible through his tight, white t-shirt. His stance, obviously defensive, almost hostile, bothered me more than I cared to admit. 
Why was he being so dismissive toward me? Had I done something wrong? I’d always assumed we were friendly, and although he was part of the Saints MC, I didn’t resent him for leaving the Bastards. I assumed it was something personal and never asked my father about it; not that he would have told me anyway. He’d have merely grunted, “Club business—nothing for you to worry your pretty little head about.”
As if I wasn’t an attorney who served both clubs—just like my partner—and like we were civvies, completely unaware with what the clubs were doing. Hell, we’d use the law firm as a money-laundering front, setting up accounts everywhere from Switzerland to the Cayman Islands for the clubs, the Mafia, and the cartel. They certainly weren’t sending clean money to any of those places when large-scale transfers were involved.
I felt like we were still looked upon as children or old ladies—nothing was our business until someone got into legal trouble and then it was our business to get them out of it. The contradictory sons of bitches were all alike. Women weren’t good for anything but screwing and having babies until they really needed us; then we were supposed to go above and beyond the call of duty to make them happy.
Fucking bikers.
Fuck the motherfucking MC, and all their stupid fucking codes and rules, and club motherfucking business.  “I know Killer told us to take all the time we needed but seriously, I gotta get back to work and if we take too much time, everyone’ll assume we’re fuckin’ so can we move this show along?” Trey questioned, his voice softening.
I glared at him with cold eyes. “And why would it be so bad for everyone to assume we were fuckin’? Am I not good enough for you, Trey Lennon?” 
He smirked, shaking his head. “That don’t have nothin’ to do with it, Kyra. You’re Jonesy’s daughter and you know the rules. You were forbidden when I was in the Demon’s Bastards MC. Now that I’m a part of the Lucifer’s Saints MC, you think your father is gonna be hunky-dory with his daughter and me bein’ somethin’ other than acquaintances?”
“Well, he didn’t say much when Cricket and I had a thing goin’ on—”
“Jonesy didn’t say nothin’ ’cause he knew it wouldn’t last. That’s not the same as you and me. We always had something between us but neither of us ever wanted to pursue it and, baby, if I did pursue something with you, it’d be for keeps. I’m not gonna romance ya or fuck ya and lie about how you don’t mean nothin’ to me because you would.”  

"One chance, baby.  Don't break my heart and don't cheat on me.  I know it's not a simple request and I understand I'm asking the impossible but I have to be able to trust you."

"Done, I don't need anyone else when I got you babe. Don't want no one else either. You're it, you're the one."

If you have read any of Selene Chardou's novel's before you know she writes her bikers to love like the ride...HARD.  Trey is no different, when he falls for a woman he goes all in.  Well as we know he lost Keri and that has just about destroyed him, but he finally sees the light and focuses in on what his future can hold.  He is home and starting to settle in as being a Saint, being with his "family", and dealing with things as they are now.

Kyra has had a long time "crush" or "desire" for Trey for as long as she can remember.  He father told them both to stay away from each other and being the Pres. of the Bastards Trey had always followed orders, but now he was a saint.  Could things between them work, maybe, but what would she lose if she was to act on those thoughts?

When a new client approaches Kyra and contracts her legal services, she is surprised to find that the person she is to find, locate, and bring to meet her client is none other than Trey.  This meeting is the catalyst that sets everything else into motion and the two find themselves in a position to where they have to figure out whether to act on the feelings they have avoided for so long, and if so then what will the future hold for them.

The Rough Riders series introduced me into MC Romance and kicked off my love for bikers.  Being one who had several real life friends who were bikers, I found my self more drawn to these hard core men even easier, but with the stories written they way they are even if you have never met a biker, you will love them anyway.  Dirty Naked love allowed me to see the true Trey and see that he is a very complex person... add in Kyra and the fire between the two is smoking.  Not only does this book give us the steamy sex that we all love and look for, it also adds in the mix of loss, great friendship, loyalty, trust, and all out unconditional love that makes the book complete.  If you don't read it you truly are missing out on a fantastic story.  This book as well as the others in the series will take you on a ride that will have you wanting more from this group who grabs ahold of life and hangs on.  There are a few things in here that I have to admit threw me for a surprise, but in the scheme of things actually allowed for the book to come together even better.  I can say that I can't wait for the next book to see where the club ends up next.  Until then I will have to continue my dreams of finding my uber sexy biker man, who is both hard and soft, and can rock my world in true BOBB fashion... to wishes and dreams...
