Blind Faith (Steel Jackals MC #2)
ARC received for honest review
Reviewed by Jacqui
So admittedly when I finished the first book in the series, Blind Devotion, I was not sure I was going to read the second. I wasn’t crazy about it or the characters. But I knew I needed to give it a chance. I was pleasantly surprised how the story and the relationship between Tish and Josh played out in this one. It became less about Tish trying to convince Josh she loved him and him being the big bad Alpha determined to control Tish. She seemed to get more of a backbone in the second book and I liked that about her. Plus the fact that the book takes place in my home state of AZ, I live in Phoenix.
I liked that we got to know how Josh became a member of the Steel Jackals and his background story. How the relationship between him and Tish formed. It made him more likeable and gave you a glimpse into believing their relationship was meant to be as Tish always thought it was. Both had a rough upbringing that could have sent them into completely different directions, but the book showed that everyone deserves the life they deserve. Not the one they grew up in. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. That is what made me keep reading.
After years of solitude, Tish O’Malley made the mistake of assuming happiness was finally hers. But before she can relax her guard and enjoy her protective—albeit secretive—Sergeant at Arms, another selfish choice made by her unconscionable drug-addict mother brings about deadly consequences. With Rachel conveniently tucked away behind bars, her massive debt is laid at Tish’s feet.
Josh “The Guardian” Sylvan knew when he claimed his young queen, her well-being would become his life’s purpose. When her mother’s senseless idiocy brings his estranged father’s notorious club to town, to protect Tish, Josh must consider taking out a member of the Obsidian Devils MC. Can he risk it all? Jeopardize his brothers and their families as they stand at his back, preparing to fight this personal battle?
Everything changes when Josh discovers his and Tish’s love has produced the one thing that will bind her to his side forever. Only then does indecision flee, and possessive rage takes over.

Nineteen-year-old Tish O’Malley has loved Josh “The Guardian” Sylvan since she was a child. When her reticent hero returns to Queen Creek after serving a three-year prison term meant for her mother, Tish is through pretending this man nearly twice her age isn’t the only happiness she’s ever known.
Will the viciously loyal Sergeant at Arms stand by his instant and brutal rejection of the woman Tish has become? Or will he give in and claim her as his young queen despite his best efforts to resist the one female who should never have made it on his radar?
*PLEASE BE AWARE: Blind Devotion was formerly released in November 2015 as HIS YOUNG QUEEN by TIFF P. RAINE. It has been revised, given a new title and cover, but it hasn’t been altered enough for any information to be missed if you don’t re-read before continuing with the books that will follow. This is the intro to the STEEL JACKALS MC series, and it’s in Tish O’Malley’s POV only. Hers and Josh’s story will continue in dual POV in BLIND FAITH, which is scheduled for release at the end of February 2017.
