Ruby (Blackhawk Series #3)

Romance / Action

Blurb

My name is Anastasia. My parents don't give a crap about me and my father loses his temper sometimes, resulting in purple bruises on my arms. I can handle myself, though... at least that's the lie I make myself repeat. Junior year has started and I meet him. He's tall and broad, his body is clearly a result of working out. His brown hair is short and he has dog tags hanging from his neck. He seems close to his friends and doesn't seem to like anyone. Until he sees me. He calls me Ruby. He calms me, makes me feel more than the empty feeling in my heart. His name is Clarke Woods and he's in a Motorcycle Club.

Prologue

Ruby

“Bye, Lil’ Mama,” I hear Axel whisper as he once again kisses Sapphire. She blushes a bit and hugs him before the men walk out of the room. Sniper kisses the top of my head and walks out as well. The club is going on a ride today, but the girls and I decided we would stay here with Sapphire and Sterling. Sniper is going to be here, outside, making sure we stay safe.

“Mama, look at the baby,” Zeke shouts, pulling on my arm. Crouching down, I smile, “Buddy, you can’t yell in a hospital.” Zeke gives me a wide eyed look, “I’m sorry, Mama.”

“It’s okay, buddy. Why don’t you go play with Reece and Rosaleigh over on the couch?” I ask. Zeke beams and grabs his Superman action figure. “Rosa! I’m going to save you!” Zeke whisper-yells, running over to where Reece and Rosaleigh are playing.

Chuckling, I turn to Emerald and Sapphire, “How’s she doing? Are you ready to take her home next week?” Sapphire takes a seat beside the baby bed and nods. Sterling has been in the hospital for about two and a half months, and the doctor told Sapphire and Axel that they can bring Sterling home next week.

“We’re beyond ready. She can breathe fine now, and she is able to warm herself up,” she tells me and Emerald. We nod. “Oh, and this morning, she weighed 7 pounds and 9 ounces,” she smiles.

Emerald leans over to Sapphire and hugs her, “That’s great; we’re happy for you,” she says. Sapphire smiles and looks at Sterling, who is sleeping, like usual. She’s such a quiet little thing. When I had Zeke, he was so loud all the time, but then again, I had him at the right time.

Looking over at Emerald, I notice her rubbing her growing belly. “How are you doing? About three months along, right?” I ask and she nods, a big smile stretching across her lips.

“Yeah, I’m so happy. This pregnancy is definitely different than the last, but that’s mainly because I’ve only got one bike in the garage,” she jokes and we all laugh. My eyes sweep across the room and land on Zeke. I watch as he plays with the twins and when Rosaleigh falls, Zeke immediately stops what he’s doing and helps her up. It makes me wonder what he would be like with a younger sibling.

A hand touches my arm, pulling my eyes away from the kids. I look back at the girls, “Are you okay?” They ask at the same time. I nod and give them a small smile, “Just thinking. When Sniper and I first found out I was pregnant, he told me that he wanted a bunch of kids,” I tell them, and they both nod, listening intently.

“But, we haven’t talked about it since we had Zeke. I can’t help but wonder if he wants more and isn’t saying anything because he doesn’t think I want any, or if he just doesn’t want more,” I say, voicing my inner thoughts. Sapphire takes my hand in hers and gently squeezes it, “I think you should talk to him about it.”

I look into her eyes to see encouragement there, “Really?” I ask and both of them nod their heads. Sighing, I lean back in my seat and look over at the door. He’s right outside. I could ask him now, but maybe I should ask him when we have a little more privacy. I really do want to talk to him about it even if it is just to clear things up.

“Speaking of you and Sniper, how did you two meet? What’s your story?” Sapphire asks, curiosity overcoming her features. “I know Emerald and Hawk’s story, but you never told me yours,” she says. I nod and take a deep breath.

“Well, it’s kind of a complicated story,” I reply and Sapphire claps her hands.

“Ooooh, do I need to get popcorn, or do I need tissues? Oooo, do I need to get a pregnancy pillow to make sure Emerald doesn’t fall over?”

Chuckling, I shake my head and smack her arm, “No, but I guess since we’re sitting here for the next several hours, I’ll tell you.” She smiles and leans back in her seat, keeping her eyes on me. Emerald smiles and does the same thing, even though she’s already heard our story.

“When I was seventeen, I moved to Redwater….”

alice: Ok, so at first I didn't like it and didn't really want to like it either, because I thought it was going to be like all the other sexist-werewolf-arranged-marriage stories, with characters that don't actually have a character or opinion. But this one starts off the way but after only a few chapt...

Brittani Nicole Case: Your summary of the story is what got me to read it. You have a way with words and with humor. I didn't really see the strong-willed version of Cordelia.
