A single father struggles to change for his daughters and the woman he loves in this second book in the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club series from New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando.
As a single father of two girls and the sergeant at arms for the Cursed Ravens Motorcycle Club, Jack “Knuckles” Chester doesn’t have much free time. And having earned his road name from his reputation as a fighter, Knuckles isn’t one to back away from a challenge.
But what he'll never admit out loud is that his two daughters have changed him irrevocably, softened him even. And these two girls are the only women who will ever hold his heart forever. That is, until he meets the cousin of another biker’s old lady.
Celina is nothing like the women Knuckles used to date. She’s a journalist for the local newspaper, dresses well, and basically just has her life together. And the last thing she wants is to be involved with a Cursed Raven. But when the ripped, badass biker worms his way into her heart, she has trouble remembering all the reasons they would never work.
But when a scandal at her newspaper breaks the thin trust she has with Knuckles, will she walk away for good? Or will Knuckles fight to keep Celina in his life?

With a nickname like "Knuckles" one would automatically assume Jack Chester is a bad boy, which he is, but underneath that rough exterior is a guy with a big heart. A heart that currently belongs to his daughters, they are his number one priority, and he'd do anything for them, but somewhere along the line he needs to make a little time for himself too... maybe work on finding someone to share his nights with. Living in the clubhouse means there are always various women hanging around to occupy his time, but that's not really the kind of woman you can make a life with, he wants someone who understands the life he leads, and is willing to share it with him.
When the clubhouse hosts a birthday party for one of their own, they open the house up to guests of her choosing, and she invites her best friend Celina. The moment she walks into the clubhouse she manages to catch the eye of every single MC member in attendance, but it's Knuckles who plans on spending the evening occupying all of her time. He likes what he sees, and from what his friend has told him about her he thinks they would make a pretty good pair, but first he has to convince Celina to give him a chance. She is a no fuss kind of girl, and she isn't really in the market for a man, which means Knuckles has got his work cut out for him...
Knuckle Down is a enthralling little page turner that is sure to pull you in from the very first sentence, and keep you completely captivated until the last... the moment my eyes found the words, I couldn't pry them away!! This is my second visit to the series and I have to say that I loved this visit just as much as the first, Knuckles caught my attention in the first installment, and I couldn't wait to meet the man under that rough and tough exterior... and my oh my did I love what I found!! He managed to give Ace some serious competition as my favorite Cursed Raven, he had moments that made me smile, moments that made me blush, and moments that made me swoon... simply said he was a all around good dude!! I got a kick out of his feisty counterpart, she had no trouble keeping him on his toes, and wrapped around her little finger, they were so much fun to watch tangle! Highly recommend you get your hands on this one, it's sure to leave you satisfied!
