Gideon Fortunati, is sent to Utah, by the MC Pres, to set up a business deal with the sect leader, Allred Lee Chiles. It is here he sets eyes on Mahalia Warrior who also happens to be the latest of Chiles’ wives (his 40th!). Even in the drab garb she is wearing, Gideon feels an attraction to her.
Mahalia was brought into the Church of Good Fortune after her husband dies and is made one of the wives. She has a fifteen year old daughter and when Chiles orders that she be married to one of the other elders makes Mahalia take drastic action. When she hears the pipes of the bike pulling up she takes a look out the window and see the sexy biker for the first time. One look at Gideon has her secret fantasy running into overdrive.
This was an unusual read for me and I must admit some of the dialogue had me stopping and reading back a few times to try and grasp what was being said, however it was an interesting and intriguing storyline. The romance element was an almost instant love that I would have liked to have felt more passion and angst as part of the build-up.
Overall a different MC read and stands out from the usual prose.
Three and a half stars.
The actual story line was interesting and had a different feel to a lot of other MC books that I've read so that was a big plus for me. Unfortunately, I didn't really connect with the characters and needed something more emotional from them. I would have also liked to have seen more of an emotional connection between our leads.
Overall an interesting story and a new series with lots of promise.
I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Gideon is an outlaw, a rebel, and he makes no bones about it. Mahalia is the dutiful, yet miserable, 40th wife of the prophet Allred Lee Chiles. As the head of the Church of Good Fortune, a fundamentalist Mormon sect, Chiles leads with a iron fist and twisted sense of morality. While Gideon has been accused of ruining women, never has he taken away their freedom, their free will. Seeing the abuses being heaped upon the women and children of Cornucopia he can not turn a blind eye to their plight. As his desire for Mahalia grows, so does his desire to the prophet fall from grace.
I have read several books in The Bare Bones and Bent Zealots series and I have become a real fan of Ms. Wolfe’s writing style. This book is no exception. The way she incorporates the often difficult subject of religion into an erotic MC story is perfection. Each page I read kept me wanting more. I had to know what happened next? Where would this wild ride on Gideon’s pussy pad take me?
Follow Gideon and Mahalia on their journey Through a Glass and discover the twists and turns that have made this my new favorite book by Layla Wolfe. I look forward to the next in the series and would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading well written stories with an adventurous and sexy theme. I happily rate this book 5 Stars!!
