Blog Tour & Review ~~ Haunt by JC Emery
Kings rule men. Queens rule kings.
Wyatt Strand is a hard man. He has hard features, speaks with harsh words, and has a hardened heart. Having served the Forsaken Motorcycle Club as Vice President, Wyatt is used to taking responsibility for his brothers, but when he’s handed the gavel everything changes. His brothers are now his men and the threat from the Italian mafia still looms in the distance. A president needs focus, but that’s nearly impossible when his old lady blows back into town and drops two very large bombshells on him.
Amber Wallace is a tough woman, but an even fiercer mother. She once told a lie to protect her unborn child that tore her away from the man she loves. And now, years later, she’s coming home to make amends. Wyatt’s changed, but the club hasn’t. Women are to be obedient. Unfortunately for Forsaken, Amber’s not about to let a few rules stop her from living the life she always imagined.
The Forsaken Motorcycle Club started a war with the Italian mafia and they’ve paid dearly for that choice. With a new president at the helm, the wheels are finally in motion to take down Mancuso once and for all. Even if it means taking the fight back to where it began.
Love is never more beautiful than when it consumes you.

STEPHANIE’S 4.5 STAR REVIEW
Haunt The Bayonet Scars Series continues with Haunt- Wyatt & Amber’s story. This is book 7 in the series based on JC Emery’s awesome combination of mobsters & motorcycles. I had originally started it and didn’t realize that there was a book before it. It is best to read Crave (book 6) before starting Haunt.
As for Haunt, I really enjoyed it. Love is never more beautiful than when it consumes you. This is Wyatt and Amber’s story. Wyatt is the Forsaken MC VP and Amber is his ‘old lady’. Amber is MC royalty and grew up in the mc club. Her father founded the Detroit Chapter but gave up the gavel when Amber’s mom died in favor of leading the California Nomads. He basically dropped Amber and her sister Michelle at the Fort Bragg Chapter where they were taken in and accepted. At 17 Amber is pregnant with Wyatt’s baby. They are happy about the baby but Wyatt has become less and less of the man she fell in love with choosing drug, booze & women. So Amber makes a difficult decision. She must put her baby first. Wyatt believes that the child Amber is carrying is not his after a misunderstanding and Amber uses that opportunity to leave. She is afraid of raising her child with Wyatt who is unstable and out of control with drugs, booze & women. Fast forward 14 years and a few drunken moments together with Wyatt.
Amber has never left his heart. Wyatt has finally gotten clean but has been waiting to be good enough for Amber. Situations occur that bring Amber back to Fort Bragg and then the real fun starts. What a great couple. Amber is strong and resilient. Wyatt is scorching hot and takes responsibility for his mistakes. I almost feel sorry for him for missing time with his son but he was such a jerk back then! But he is all man now and ready to take his family back! As the story wraps up shit happens! No spoilers here!!! Let’s just say whoa, I did not see that coming.
If you have read the series you will like Amber & Wyatt’s story. I highly recommend you start at the beginning with Ride and see how it all begins!
“Ran out on me,” he says. His voice makes it sound like he’s thirsty, so gravely and rough. “Last time you ran out on me you were eight months pregnant with our fuckin’ son. Don’t like seeing you leave me.”
“We need to talk,” I say quickly before he can reach me.
“You need to quit fucking leaving me.”
“Quit giving me reason to!” That’s not totally fair. It’s not exactly his fault that the Italian guys showed up when they did. It’s not one hundred percent his fault that Rig targeted Zander. But it doesn’t exactly matter, either. Ever since Rig, I’ve been on edge and my moods are fluctuating like crazy. I don’t like these feelings. Adding Wyatt to the mix turns my crazy into straight-up insanity.
Wyatt storms toward me, grabs me around the waist and pulls me against him. He tips my face up towards his. And all his gentle turns into something else entirely in the blink of an eye.
“Knock it the fuck off!” He screams in my face, so loud, but I barely hear the words.
The ball in my throat hardens and I’m forced to swallow it. My hands shake with an anger that I don’t expect. I don’t know why I’m so mad right now, but I am. Nervous, sure. Anxious, yeah. But mad? That one confuses me. I don’t dwell on it though, because the frustration becomes too much to swallow. I push him off me, angry and annoyed. I suck in an unsteady breath as we stare each other down. He huffs. My eyes fall to his lips and they stay there. It’s magnetic—the pull his lips have over me. Every time I look at them, I’m either desperate to touch them or I remember every vile word that he’s ever said to me. If I’m being honest with myself, even then, in those moments of remembrance, I still want them on me. Nothing ever changes that. I hate admitting that, even to myself, though.
I pull my gaze from his lips to find his eyes are on my mouth now. His tongue pokes out, drags over his rough lips. I could fall into this. I could let this happen so easily, but then we’ll end up right back where we started.
“You can’t kiss me. You’re going to hate me soon, so please don’t kiss me.”
