All good things must come to an end and this incredible MC series has gone out with a bang! The characters have become almost like familiar friends. The stories have melted into hours of mesmerizing reading. This book was a refreshing change from your average MC story. This one felt more like real life. The inevitable struggles that all marriages go through. How to keep the love alive while dealing with kids, bills and other responsibilities that sometimes makes romance get lost on the list. The title Rough and Real is quite an accurate description. The story was a little rough to read and it dealt with real issues. West and Ivy have been married for years and even though they both love each other it just does not seem enough. Ivy is distracted with her kids and trying to get back into shape with the hopes that her husband will be attracted to her again. West is distracted with the ladies in the back room of the clubhouse. His desire for Ivy has never changed but he just wants more. This story was a wake up call not only for the characters but the reader also. It really makes you think about your relationships and if you are putting in an effort or going through the motions. This was an amazing series and this book was the perfect way to go out on top.
