Quote-tastic: Raine Falling by Paula Marinaro

Raine Falling (Hells Saints Motorcycle Club #1)
by Paula Marinaro
After a lifetime of uncertainty, Raine Winston shouldn’t be fazed by anything anymore. But she’s terrified. Terrified that her wayward sister, Claire, has gotten into debt dangerously over her head. Terrified that a muscle-clad biker named Diego doesn’t want payment with money—he wants much more. And terrified of the dizzying desire she feels whenever Diego touches her…

Diego Montesalto spends his days raising hell and his nights in the arms of fast, easy women. Tough, tattooed, and used to taking what he wants, he refuses to get emotionally invested in anyone. But he can’t stop thinking about Raine’s sweet smell, striking blue eyes, and quiet determination. She may have the spirit of a warrior, but she needs someone to guide and protect her.

When Raine has no choice but to go on the run, she falls straight into the Hells Saints’ mayhem-filled world…and into Diego’s strong arms. But in a life filled with hard choices, raw lust, and blood-soaked violence, is there room for loyalty…or love?

Revised edition: Previously published as Game Changer, this edition of Raine Falling includes editorial revisions.

Prosper is like a second dad to Raine. Love their father/daughter relationship. The best moments for me in Raine Falling is their father/daughter bond. I connected more with Prosper and Raine than I did with her and the hero Diego.  This scene broke my heart but at the same time made me smile knowing Raine has someone in her life to look after her. Especially after her shitty dad has left her and her sister when they were young. Prosper and his old lady Pinky are the ones who are always saving them. Prosper thinks she is the smartest and courageous little girl he has ever known. Raine is always scared and does not always feel brave.
Does anyone ever get tired of being brave, Prosper?" I put my tiny hand in his.
He squeezed it gently and said, "Sure they do little darlin', People get tired of being brave all the time."
"What happens then, Prosper?" I was looking at him now, the weight of the world on my shoulders.
I heard something catch in the back of his throat, and he had to clear it before he went on. "Why they call on someone who has some brave left over, that's what they do."
I thought about this for a while. "So Prosper?"
"Yeah, Raine?"
"You got this?"
He brought the back of his hand up to his eye. "Yeah, darlin', I got this."
