Beneath These Chains (Beneath #3) by Meghan March

Beneath these chains
Available on * * Goodreads


I was raised on the streets, so I know things are rarely as simple as they appear—especially this rich girl showing up at my pawnshop demanding a job.

She’s the most tempting thing I’ve ever seen, and I’ll be damned if I can make her leave.

Shit just got complicated … but when it comes to her—I want complicated.

We’re both fighting our own demons, and our only chance at a future is to let go of the past.

But will we be strong enough to break free from beneath these chains?

BENEATH THESE CHAINS may be read as a standalone. 


Beneath These Chains was a fun read. I loved Lord and Elle, though I didn't realize this was the third book when I started reading. It can be read as a standalone, but there were times when someone was mentioned that I knew I missed something from the prior book. I will just have to go back and read the second book to find out what I missed.

Lord is a big, strong, tattooed guy who owns a pawn shop on the wrong side of the tracks. He bought the shop from his brother and is trying to make it work. He desperately wants to succeed, but is having a bit of a rough time and he is not sure why. He has a kid who he helped off the streets working for him, Mathieu, and is just trying to run his business. 

Elle is a rich girl, from a rich family, and the best friend of his brothers girlfriend. So off limits to Lord. I mean he doesn't want to do anything that could potentially mess up what his brother has going. He can't. His brother means too much to him and is finally happy. He doesn't want to mess with that no matter how attracted to Elle he is. 

When Elle shows up at his pawn shop and basically tells him she is working there and won't take no for an answer things get a bit tricky. He is not sure why she is there, but he wants her to leave, but also stay. He just isn't sure what to do really. Things only get worse when the big bad crime guy sets his sights on Elle so he has to claim her as his own. That and bodies keep piling up that are connected to him and Elle. People who he argued with or had a run in with. Things get a bit tricky and through it all Elle and Lord grow closer. 

Oh this was a fun read. I love the big, tough, alpha males and the girls who can stand up to them. I love the mystery of who is killing people and that I didn't expect where the story went. Really I loved watching Lord open up and show some vulnerability. I also loved that he would do the right thing even if it was hard. This was great. Now I can't wait to go back and read his brother's story.
