Title: HWY 550
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: February 17th, 2019
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.
Special Agent Luna Roosberg lives and breathes her job. Who needs a personal life when work is so rewarding?
When a new case sends her to investigate a local motorcycle club, covering as the president’s new flavor of the week, the lines between professional and personal quickly start to blur.
Although the Arrow’s Edge MC stays mostly on the right side of the law since Ouray took the gavel, the appearance of the feds at their gate can still rattle his cage.
When a string of robberies points squarely in Ouray’s direction, he’s forced to cooperate and put the blonde, prim and proper half-pint on the back of his bike.
With pressure mounting both in—and outside—the club, Ouray no longer knows who he can trust, except the woman who is shaking up his life—and stirring his blood.
Freya Barker does another stellar job with her latest in the Rock Point Series, HWY 550. As if I couldn’t possibly swoon any more over her ever-growing list of male leads who check off every single box in my book boyfriend world, she goes ahead and kicks it up a notch and creates Ouray, president of Arrow’s Edge MC.
I love MC romance books and HWY 550, specifically, would definitely be included in that genre. It just so happens that our FBI friends and local PD from the two books prior in this incredible series, Keeping Six and Cabin 12, find themselves looking for those responsible for a string of robberies that could be connected to the MC.
Enter FBI agent Luna Roosberg. This pint-sized, sassy, badass, firecracker of an agent could kick anyone’s ass in a fight or with her sharp tongue. Luna has been an intriguing side character in Freya’s past books, and I’m so glad she’s finally gotten her own story. I had more laughs with this book as Luna goes undercover and completely out of her comfort zone when she takes off her proper FBI wear and morphs into a hot-looking biker chick. Well, that did more than catch the attention of Ouray. This is where the fun begins. Luna is a woman who constantly fights to erase the stigma of a woman in a “man’s job.” Believe me, she does it spectacularly, but the biker world is much the same, which doesn’t sit well AT ALL with Luna. The banter back and forth between the bikers, their prez, and Luna is priceless.
Little by little, Ouray and Luna become civil to one another the more she understands the MC world and he respects her position and drive to do her job to its fullest. Ouray confides club business to her, which is an absolute MC no-no, and I had to remind myself that Luna needs this info for the investigation. While Luna emmerses herself into clubhouse life and learns more about the club members and their brotherhood, Freya adds a homeless boy to the story who is deaf and taken in by the MC. This act of kindness has been done before by the club, blurring the lines for those who might slap a label on who they consider a good or bad member of society. This adorable boy, Cody, quickly finds his way into Luna and Ouray’s hearts.
HWY 550 is simply another work of art from Freya Barker’s collection literary treasures. There are so many layers to the storyline as well as the characters. Sometimes the heroes of her books are those least expected. There are plenty of twists and turns, along with some hot sexy times. Ouray and Luna fight to do the right thing but it doesn’t come easy. Nothing worth fighting for ever does. Freya does an incredible job making two characters from opposite sides of the law come together, fall in love, and find their own kind of perfect.
Another outstanding read by my favorite word-spinner, the queen of suspense, sassy women, and the hot alpha men who love them. Freya Barker always leaves me wanting more, and she never disappoints. I highly recommend HWY 550. Five stars for me❤️
I received this ARC for an honest review, and honest it certainly is.

“Brooke exceeded my expectations… YET AGAIN! When I thought I couldn’t end up loving her characters even more so than I already did when reading book 1 and 2 in the series, she completely obliterated this thought and showed me I COULD fall even more in love with them.” – Melissa, Melissafandomworld Blog
“Once again, Brooke had me captivated with the couple and hooked on the storyline. And its no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of secondary and returning characters so it was great to see the gang again. Another amazing 5 star book from Brooke O’Brien!” – Emma, Ever Growing Book Obsession Blog
“This book was definitely worth waiting for! I am in love with Graham and Halle’s story. It was everything I was hoping for and more. It was heartbreaking and so beautiful. I was also happy that we got to see Maverick and Ryan again. I can’t wait for more of this series!” – Naomi, Goodreads Reviewer
