★★★★ 3.5 Stars ★★★★
Random & Rare was a powerful and emotional book that was packed full of detail relating to the events that occurred in book 1 Lock & Key.
Split into two parts, Part One takes us back to the very beginning of Grace’s story, but told in the point of view of her first husband, Dig. Life with the One Eyed Jacks MC was always a hectic life and we are thrown knee deep into the intricacies of the club business that we first saw through Grace’s eyes.
Part 2 brings us to the present day and Grace’s second chance with Miller and the struggles they face now that they have decided to take their relationship to the next stage.
This was a very deep book which requires your complete concentration and attention. Dig’s constant worry over Grace choosing to spend her life with a biker and not someone safer, and his guilt over the tragic events of his childhood haunt him and cause him great pain, and I felt that pain along with him.
I have to say, my preference was for Part Two and experiencing the anguish that Grace & Miller are going though was heartbreaking but it’s obvious that their love for each other is strong and when Grace almost hits rock bottom once again in her life, Miller is there to pick her right back up again.
I love the way Cat writes, very detailed but not overly so and I would love to perhaps revisit another member of the club. I think the author took a big risk with the direction she took with this book, and it won’t be every bodies cup of tea, but it was a brave move and I am glad that I got to experience Grace’s first love.
This is the second book in the Lock & Key series, and is a follow on from book 1.
