Burning Daylight (Devil's Cartel MC #2) by Skyla Madi

How do you save your son from the vile grips of a bad man? You find one that's more evil. The fight against my ex-husband cost me everything – my job, my house, and the only family I had left. With him, I experienced the worst of life, so chasing the Devil’s Cartel’s President down a darkened highway in the middle of the night didn’t seem so scary. On the surface, Damon Judge was cold, calculative, and cruel. But underneath his tough exterior, his leathers, and his ink, he was charming and passionate. He was a father who’d already faced my greatest fear...and lost. I knew better than to exchange one evil for another, but Judge was my last resort. I needed him to save me from suffering the same fate he did. And I wasn’t taking ‘no’ for an answer.
