This book may have been her best yet. West and Ivy have been around from the beginning, so this wasn’t really the story of two people falling in love. Then again it kind of was as well. We’ve talked about it on the podcast before, and anyone who knows me knows how I feel about this. When you are with someone for a long time you don’t stay the way you did when you first met. Especially those who meet young. You grow together, you grow apart, and sometimes if you put in the work you find each other again.

This story was the perfect representation of reality. Yes, there was the whole MC element and all the drama that comes with it. The main focus of this book was between a husband and his wife. Getting stuck in a routine and being afraid to explore outside yourself. Being afraid to confide in the person you spent your life with only separates you more. I am truly in love with this story, and would highly recommend it to anyone. You don’t need to read the rest of the series to read this because the most important part is this husband and wife trying to find each other again.

Title: Rough and Real

Series: Notorious Devils #7

Author: Hayley Faiman

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: January 22, 2018



Ivy Gaines has loved one man in her lifetime. After fifteen years of marriage and three kids, reality hasn’t changed that—but sometimes love isn’t enough.

West “Camo” Gaines has never wanted anyone the way he wants his wife, but the Notorious Devils’ club life has opened his eyes and awakened a desire he knows he can’t explore with the mother of his children.

Lies, misunderstanding, betrayal and silence are the bitter pills they swallow daily as the marriage they thought would last forever begins to unravel. It isn’t until club rivalries threaten to shatter their entire world that they realize how much they have to fight for.

When things get rough and real, they’re forced to remember just how deep their love goes.
