Book Review: Fighter's Claim by D.D. Galvani

About the Book

Fighter is an Enforcer for the Devil’s Wind MC. His job is to take care of the prospects, make sure things run smoothly and kick some ass if it doesn’t. His life consists of his club, his bike, his brothers, and more than his fair share of pussy. The last thing he needs is his little sister and her best friend showing up at the clubhouse, ragged, beaten and looking to him to sort out their mess.

Tish and Jiji have been best friends since the day they met. When fate steps in and forces them to run for is sisters best friend is no longer the little girl he once knew. She’s all grown up and has him wanting their lives, the safest place possible is with Jiji’s brother, Fighter. Fighter doesn’t do relationships but hto stake his claim. Tish has risked her life to save Jiji and now Fighter must return the favor. When their two worlds collide, The Devil’s Wind steps up to protect Tish and Jiji and Fighter has a decision to make before he loses Tish.

My Thoughts

Fighter’s Claim is a debut novel by D.D Galvani centreing around the Devils Wind MC. My understanding is this is the first book in a series about members of the MC.

The writing is good overall and flows quite well. I appreciated the author was attentive to details by tying up small loose ends that at times are left by the wayside. The plot has been well thought out and makes for an interesting read.

There were a few parts where I felt the story glossed over situations in a superficial manner that I feel deserve greater attention.

Tish and Jameson’s relationship is hot and they develop real feelings for each other but their coming together was too fast for my liking. There was really even no discussion that they were a couple. A hug, a kiss, a declaration from Jameson and the deal is apparently done.

The members of the MC are quite tame in comparison to characters in other MC books I’ve read. This is not necessarily a bad thing but I believe they sit too far in the “nice” category. Where’s the grittiness? These men have more deep & meaningful relationship discussions than I do! Interestingly, the only person in the book committing physical acts of violence is Tish.

Overall the book held my interest and I would like to read more of the author’s books to see how her published writing develops.

A final observation: If you describe your hero as having shoulder length hair, it pays to find a representative cover model.
