Rough and Ready 

Title: Rough and Ready

Series: Notorious Devils MC #5)

Author: Hayley Faiman

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: June 16, 2017

Cover Designer: Cassy Roop at Pink Ink Designs


Cleo Hill is a married woman, in love with a man she’s never really known—her husband, whom she hasn’t seen in eleven years.

Paxton “Torch” Hill is a Notorious Devil, a man who’s been wrestling with his personal demons since before he knew the horrors of war.

When a threat against his club means danger could be lurking around his estranged wife’s door, Paxton is determined to protect her. Yet, one look at the woman he left behind, and he knows his plans are about to change.

The past is not an easy thing to forget, especially not for a woman scorned. While Cleo isn’t the innocent catch he once knew, there’s something about that rough and ready man she’s not sure she can deny.

After all—they promised each other forever.

My Review:

Paxon and Cleo are not your typical married couple. They haven’t seen each other in 11 years.


When Paxton (Torch now) came home from the war, he was a different man. He knew that if he stayed with Cleo, that he would hurt her more than he already had, so he left.

Years later, when his club has been threatened, he feels that her life could be in danger too. He finds her in order to protect her, his sweet, innocent wife, but she isn’t the same girl he left 11 years ago.

Cleo is shocked to see Paxton for the first time in 11 years. She has always loved him and was never able to get over him fully. Now that he’s back, she is more confused than ever. She hates him for what he did to her but she also still loves him.

When Paxton decides he is going to get her back, he does whatever he needs to do, including kind of kidnapping her.

Can they rebuild their relationship after 11 years of nothing? Can Cleo ever trust him again after learning about his new life with the MC?


This is not my first Hayley Faiman book but it is my first book from this series, which can be read out of order.

This book was back and forth for me. At times I enjoyed it and other times I wanted to throw it across the room.

I think that Cleo and Paxton had a story about how true love never dies, but some of the things that were said and doe during this book, weren’t my favorite. I love MC books and I know they are rough and tough books, but something in this one didn’t click for me.

I will still defiantly read this author. Just because I didn’t connect in this book, doesn’t mean I won’t connect with another book.

With that, I give this book 3 1/2 Stars.
