Cold Fusion by Olivia Rigal: Review & Excerpt

Cold Fusion
(Iron Tornadoes MC, Book 3)
by Olivia Rigal

Genre: 18+ New Adult Contemporary Romance

When he graduates from the Police Academy, David Mayfield is no rookie. His past experience as an MP allows him to jump right into an undercover mission.

Hired at the Bush Fire, a strip club owned by the white supremacist group David's task force is investigating, he is to gather information.

But fascinated by Jeanne-Michelle, a curvaceous Haitian dancer, he soon realizes that the real challenge of his mission may turn out to be abiding by the single rule of the strip club: “No messing around with the talent.”

COLD FUSION can be read as a stand alone. You can read Cold Fusion first and then go on to Stone Cold and Cold Burn or start with those two and finish with Cold Burn.
A couple of the Knight's full-patched members arrive and hang out at the bar next to me. They're regulars, and they never give me a hard time. As always, Dmitry, the sergeant-at-arms, tries to talk me into joining the club. The Russian giant doesn't need to sell me on the brotherhood aspect, though - Ernest and Brian convinced me of the beauty of that ages ago. But Dmitry's trying really hard. He says they even agreed that I wouldn't have to go through the prospect phase. Are they that badly in need of new members?
I'm running out of excuses to explain why I won't apply. I can't very well tell him that I'm a police officer and that if I was ever going to join and MC I would pick the Iron Tornadoes.
Dmitry would actually be a good fit for the Tornadoes. He's about as vicious as Brian's father. The Russian tries to compensate for his lack of hair by sporting a beard that makes him look about as mean as he really is. I observed him once in a fist fight that he'd had the courtesy to take outside, and he'd scared the shit out of me. Possibly because his favorite weapon was the folded blade. 
But no matter how much sense it would make, merging the two clubs isn't about to happen. First because the Iron Tornadoes don't discriminate - their members belong to all races. Second because the two MCs have some bad blood. I don't know the origin of it, and I guess most of the members don't either, but if a Knight ever fell in love with an Iron Tornado, we would have a Floridian version of Romeo and Juliet. We could even complicate it a bit by having a Knight fall for one of the daughters of a Latino member... then he'd be in trouble with the Tornadoes and also with his own crew for stepping on forbidden grounds. 
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While Stone Cold and Cold Burn were telling the dramatic story of Brian and Lisa, David Mayfield was an enigma who managed to impact their lives at every turn. A recent graduate of the police academy, David's first assignment is to go deep undercover to infiltrate the Category Five Knights MC. This is David's story.

COLD FUSION takes readers back to the beginning of the Iron Tornadoes MC saga and kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. A well written and fast paced drama packed with erotic romance, mystery, drama and suspense, COLD FUSION is the perfect ending to this amazing series!
Born in Manhattan, I spent her youth going back and forth between the United States and France.
 I lived and studied law in both countries.

While studying I kept myself busy with a variety of jobs.
 I worked in the Clignancourt Flea Market as well as in a Parisian recording studio. In Manhattan, I was a dog groomer and then an administrative assistant in a famous English auction house. 

I settled in France to raise my family and traveled throughout South East Asia. I has a special fondness for Laos and Thailand. 

When my law practice does not keep me busy in Paris, I run away to write novels in my Florida home next to MacArthur Beach State Park. In December 2012 I started publishing short novels in English as an independent. Early 2014, I began translating them into French.

The stories I tell stand alone. However my characters often meet, so you can run into them again in several stories.
