Fabio’s Remorse by Aden Lowe is the 5 book in the Hell Raiders MC series. It can be read as a standalone novel though.
With just a few months left in his tour with the Army, Caleb gets a Dear John letter from his high school sweetheart. He couldn’t understand it. In her letter from just weeks before, she was still talking about plans for their upcoming wedding.
What Caleb doesn’t realize is that Justine is had her reasons. After being assaulted, she is living in her own misery. She feels that everything has been taken away from her. She is living in constant fear and her attackers are keeping that way on purpose.
As Caleb is transitioning from soldier to suvillian, he gets involved with the Hell Raiders MC. He earns the nickname Fabio and the name sticks.
When tragedy strikes, Fabio is forced back to his hometown and to Justine.
It was interesting to see how Fabio and Justine change throughout the book.
When Caleb get’s Justine’s letter, he just shuts down. He has questions, but instead of facing her and asking, he runs. The things he does while he’s serving in the war also have an effect on him as a person. He becomes a loner and withdrawn with the exception of his dog.
When he meets the MC, it gives him a chance to become part of a brotherhood. He has a place with them, and they don’t ask to many questions. Becoming Fabio gives him a chance at a new life.
Justine couldn’t face Caleb after the attack. She suffers in silence like so many women do after they have been assaulted. She becomes withdrawn and afraid of everything. Her friends and family don’t understand. It takes a toll on her.
I loved watching them both learn to trust again.
This book tells a story of what women can go through after being raped and assaulted. It’s a pretty heavy subject, but it was written very well. It also touches on PTSD in soldiers and victims. As hard as it can be to read, it is necessary. Great book!
