Review: ‘Rubble’ Skye McNeil

She’s sworn off relationships. He has no desire to fall at all. They can only fight their attraction for so long.

Jupiter Quinn is on the run from an abusive relationship. Finding shelter in Macha MC, her goal is to keep her head down until the divorce is finalized. What Jupiter doesn’t expect is to fall for the club’s toughest man who also happens to be a former MMA fighter.

Rubble Hardy is Macha’s sergeant at arms and enforcer for the club. He doesn’t date. Never has and never will. Women are trouble and he’s not about to let down his guard. But when Jupiter Quinn walks through the club doors, his heart shifts, and the powerful desire to protect her only outweighs his feelings.

When Jupiter’s past collides with her newfound future, she’s forced to either flee or face the danger.

Can Rubble keep her safe, or will they tap out?

Rubble is book three in the Macha MC series and each book is standalone, meaning that readers can jump into the series at any point.

As a reader, I love books where time and effort has been put into the world building and this is something that is evident in Rubble. I read as a means of escape and I can only truly lose myself in a book if the world in which it is set – regardless of its genre – is believable. The Macha MC series is the perfect example of this. The characters are three dimensional and each have their own unique personalities and quirks, meaning that a reader feels a connection with them. When a reader feels a connection like this, it means that they can become emotionally invested in the character and their story. For me, being made to care about a character and what happens to them is a sign of good writing and a good story. There have been countless times when reading a romance book where I haven’t felt any sort of connection with the characters and because of this, getting to the end of the book has felt like a chore. Often this is down to the fact that the author has sacrificed plot and character development for the sake of a few extra steamy sex scenes, but this wasn’t the case with Rubble. Jupiter and Rubble’s relationship isn’t just built on a foundation of physical attraction. They work together as a couple in every way – mentally, emotionally and physically.

I’m not normally one for ‘instalove’ stories, but it works in Rubble. In a world where things can change drastically from one day to the next – where your psychopathic ex can run you out of town or a rival MC can rock up and wreak havoc – sometimes you’ve just got to live in the moment and jump in at the deep end, feet first. Instalove works in Jupiter and Rubble’s story, plus their chemistry is absolutely electric!

I haven’t read the previous two books in the series, but having read Rubble, I can confidently recommend the series to any romance fan who loves stories that are passionate, intense and fast-paced. I’m looking forward to reading the other books in the series!
