Gerard Parish has always known who he is. A biker, a father, a gambling man. But one chance encounter with a beautiful brunette at his auto body shop and everything changes. The way he thinks, the way he looks at life, and most importantly who he wants to be. As Baum Squad president, Gerard holds responsibilities he can’t turn his back on, but when he’s with Kristen, all those responsibilities seem insignificant. She’s a woman like none other, smart, sophisticated, sexy, rich. She’s a woman he never envisioned himself with but is somehow lucky enough to have. Faced with an impossible choice, Gerard must come to terms with what he inevitably knows— he has to walk away. The question is, from whom? The club or Kristen?
Someone is watching me. 
I can feel it. I wake up in the middle of the night freaked out of my mind, paranoid a stranger is there. My skin prickles every time I leave my house, because I know someone is following me. 
I'm afraid. Alone. 
And there's only one person left to turn to. 
The stepbrother I never met. 
He's the president of a notorious motorcycle club and exactly the kind of person I need to protect me - cutthroat, cocky, dangerous. 
Little did I know, hot as all holy hell Ky Parish, downright loathes me. 
You know what they say - there's a fine line between love and hate. 
And I'm definitely walking it.

Snowfall & Slases in the Snow by M. Never is the first book in A Baum Squad Series.  This is the story of Ky 'Slash' and Kira. Please note that there was a Prequel called Snowfall that introduced us to the parents (the step-parents story), set the tone of Ky being upset about his father's new life.  But with that said this book can be a standalone book.
Ky holds a grudge against his father and his father's new family so he hasn't seen nor spoke to him nor them.  But Ky took over being the President of the Baum Squad after his father left it and as a ex-military, Ky is man who doesn't let things go easily.  When Kira comes into his life he is attracted to her instantly but thinks to get what he wants from her to too.  Kira knows that someone is watching and doing things that she can't prove.  So she feels the only safe place or person that might be able to help is her step-brother Ky.  But his world is different from hers and he isn't giving up much.
Ky was somewhat hard to get into after his one encounter with someone else after meeting Kira but I slowly came around to them both.
