Although More Than Miles can be read as a stand-alone, the first book in the series, Slow Burn, is currently free and the second book, Corrupting Cinderella, is on sale for .99cents.
Blake “Murphy” O'Callaghan, Road Captain of the Lost Kings MC, has the world by the balls. Everything he wants…except the one girl who’s off limits. The only girl he’s ever loved. His best friend’s little sister, Heidi.
Now that she’s eighteen, it’s time to claim her as his. Problem is, she’s in love with her high-school boyfriend, Axel, a prospect for the Lost Kings MC.
Can Murphy convince Heidi that all the hard roads they’ve traveled lead to their happy ending, or is he destined to ride the open road alone?
Darra's Review:In the beginning of the story you are thrown into it immediately. Already knew that Murphy was bold and knew what he wanted, Heidi. She turned 18 he can proclaim his true feelings he has been holding back. Knowing her all her life makes it difficult to be open with Heidi's brother. But you can't help but love the one you love.
As for Heidi, she has had a rough road with being alone, living with her retched grandmother. Not everyone knows how bad it was. Including both her brother and Murphy. There is a an age difference. Not a huge gap. But enough where she had to wait several years to show her love for Murphy. Except she has been together with Axel for years and cannot show that she still has feelings for him. Heidi's life in this book continues to be difficult and she is a great, strong female character that despite her being a brat at times, you will like her. You will feel for her and can't imagine going through all those things just at the age of 18.
Short note about Axel. He is very smart. He had his moments where I liked him. However he was immature like most people his age and didn't know how to handle it best. Plus he knows about Murphy and Heidi. I think his point of views should have been longer to make me understand and sympathize with him more.
I can't tell you the rest of the plot since it is not in the synopsis, so it would be a spoiler if I wrote much more. Just know that this is a book with imperfect people and imperfect lives. All trying to make the best of the situations. Always hoping the HEA ending.
I rate the book a 4.3 out of 5.
Sunny's Review:I am not a big MC fan but thought I would give this book a shot. I was actually surprised that I liked this one a lot more than some of the other MC books I have read. I am undecided on how I feel about Murphy. On one hand, I love him. He has loved Heidi for the majority of her life and has always taken care of her. On the the other hand, on the day of her 18th birthday he is like okay we are together and I've wanted you for years. So I went back and forth on him. Honestly, he is a good guy and really does everything for her. I feel bad for him in a lot of ways. Heidi is your typical 18 year old girl. In college, has a boyfriend and just wants to experience her life. She had a rough childhood and it shows. Every decision she makes is stemming from her abandonment issues and the abuse from her childhood. Axel is another one that I am conflicted about. Sometimes he seems like a great guy. He is 21 and he acts like it but at the end of the day I think he wanted to be a good guy. Unfortunately, he really never had anything hard in his life and didn't know how to handle anything once he was out on his own.
I liked the multiple points of view. We got to see Murphy, Heidi and Axel's thoughts. I also liked that the reactions that each of the characters seemed so realistic. I can totally understand the way they each acted in the different situations. Some books are so unrealistic that it can be annoying. A lot of times if the girl is young like Heidi her reactions are just ridiculous or moronic but Autumn made the characters real. I could imagine being in their shoes and know that I would probably react the same way. The story line was good. Again I am normally not a love triangle person either but I liked the way this one was written.
I am giving the book 4.4 stars out of 5. Go get it and enjoy.
For reasons I don’t want to think about, I’m anxious while I wait downstairs. Sparky’s hanging out in the living room, so I end up talking to him while I wait.
It’s my brother who finally comes downstairs. Not Blake.
Marcel ushers me out the door without speaking. Outside, in the parking lot, I shake out of his hold. “Wait a second. Where’s Blake?”
“Upstairs. He’s tired.”
He pushes me into his truck and shuts the door.
Tired of being manhandled, I hop right back out. “What do you mean he’s tired? We were going to—”
“Get back in the truck.”
“Heidi,” he warns. “Leave him alone and get in the truck.”
I don’t answer, but I hoist myself back inside his big, jacked-up ride.
“What are you compensating for with this monster truck?” I ask when he slams his door.
“You didn’t hit Blake, did you?”
“No. Should I have?”
“No! Why are you being such a—”
“Careful, little sister.”
I hate this. I hate when he pushes me into acting like a brat. I’ve been trying so hard lately, but sometimes he pushes all my bratty-little-sister buttons.
“He said you fell at the park. You okay?”
Unsure of just how much Blake told my brother, I say as little as possible. “I’m fine.”
“Why were you up in his room?”
“Jeez. I already told you. I helped him bandage up his arms.”
“Are you hurt?”
My shoulder still burns from the Tiger Balm, and I replay the few brief seconds with my shirt off while Blake tended to me, our kiss, our second kiss after he tenderly wiped my face clean. I’m not sharing any of those moments with my brother, though.
“Heidi, you know you’re the most important person in the world to me, right? Everything I’ve done. Everything I do. It’s to make sure you end up okay. You know that, right?”
His words drive splinters of guilt through my chest. “Yes.”
He sighs and reaches over to squeeze my hand. “How much do you remember about living with mom?”
“I don’t know. Not much. I remember hanging out at the club with you guys more.”
“She left us alone a lot.”
“I know.” I’m tempted to tell him to get to the point, but I’m also curious about where he’s going with this.
“You remember any of the guys she used to bring home?”
If I think really hard, I do. Sort of. “I remember you sleeping in my room when she had guys over. You used to sleep in front of the door.”
I’m watching him closely, so I notice the way his mouth twists down right away. “Yeah.” His hands squeeze the steering wheel. “You were so little. And trusting. And sweet.”
“Are you trying to say I’m a big, suspicious, bitter teenager now?”
He huffs out a laugh and glances over at me. “And so fucking smart.”
“Smart ass you mean.”
“Not that I don’t enjoy strolling down crappy childhood memory lane, but do you have a point?”
“What did we always say when we were younger? Whatever Mom did—”
“We’d do the opposite when we were adults.”
“You still happy with Axel?”
Confused and suspicious of the change in conversation, I take a second to answer. “Yes, why?” A shiver of excitement races over me. “Why? You think the club’s going to vote him in soon?”
“Heidi, you know I can’t talk to you about that stuff.”
“Yeah, yeah,” I grumble and cross my arms over my chest.
He chuckles then turns serious again. “If you’re with Axel, be with him. But stop messing with Blake.”
The familiar tingle of my blood boiling starts up. “What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Exactly what I said. He’s too old for you.”
“I’m not messing with him.” If anything, Blake keeps messing with my head. My heart. But I won’t rat him out to my brother and cause problems between them. I love both of them too much.
He’s silent for the next few miles and his words replay in my head. “Are you trying to say I’m like Mom?”
“No. Fuck no. You’re nothing like her. I just don’t want you making her mistakes.”
“What would those be?”
“Axel’s my only boyfriend.”
“Good. I know you and Blake are friends, too. Just, be careful.”
“Why? He wouldn’t hurt me.”
“You’re not a two-guy type of girl, Heidi.”
“How do you know?”
He takes his eyes off the road for a second to glare at me. “I know you.”
“You’re saying that because I’m your sister.”
“How would you feel if you knew Axel had girls on the side?”
An uneasy prickle slides through my stomach at the thought. Axel spends a lot of hours at the club. Marcel knows my boyfriend in a whole different way than I do. “You haven’t seen him. . .he doesn’t mess around with other girls, does he?”
He chuckles because I fell for the bait. “Have I ever kicked his ass?”
I snort and shake my head.
“I won’t tolerate anyone disrespecting my sister. Club or not.”
A tight smile forms at the corners of my mouth, but I don’t say anything right away.
“Have you ever considered those girls you mess with? Club girls. Maybe they’re someone’s little sister?”
“Maybe they’ve got big brothers warning them away from guys like you?”
His jaw tightens. “You’re too smart for your own good.”
