Although More Than Miles can be read as a stand-alone, the first book in the series, Slow Burn, is currently free and the second book, Corrupting Cinderella, is on sale for .99cents.
Blake “Murphy” O'Callaghan, Road Captain of the Lost Kings MC, has the world by the balls. Everything he wants…except the one girl who’s off limits. The only girl he’s ever loved. His best friend’s little sister, Heidi.
Now that she’s eighteen, it’s time to claim her as his. Problem is, she’s in love with her high-school boyfriend, Axel, a prospect for the Lost Kings MC.
Can Murphy convince Heidi that all the hard roads they’ve traveled lead to their happy ending, or is he destined to ride the open road alone?
Been waiting for this day for what feels like forever.
My hand’s in the air, ready to knock when the door swings open. Heidi’s mouth drops in a surprised gasp. “What are you doing here? Axel was supposed to pick me up.”
“They needed him at the clubhouse. Besides, it’s your birthday, gonna take you for a ride.”
Her lips twitch into a smile. “Okay.”
She takes a step back to let me muscle my way inside. My arm brushes against her as I pass, and her sweet scent snaps something inside me.
My foot lashes out behind me, kicking the door shut.
“Happy eighteenth birthday, baby girl.”
She takes a step back and crosses her arms over her chest. “Thanks.”
Every step I take closer to her, she takes one away. Finally her back’s to the wall and she’s got nowhere else to go. She turns and I slap my hand against the wall to stop her.
“Heidi, look at me.”
Her big brown eyes blink up at me. Words can’t express what’s inside my head or heart. Instead, I lower my mouth to hers. Capture her lips in a soft kiss. As soft as I’m capable of. I pull back just to breathe her in. My hands slide into her hair, holding her still so I can taste every inch of her sweet mouth.
I’m a bastard, because this isn’t the first time I’ve kissed Heidi. We kissed two Christmases ago under the frigid night sky and last year on her birthday.
But it was nothing like this. I don’t have to hold back now. She’s mine and I’m ready to finally be hers.
Her hands settle on my shoulders. Not pushing me away. But not urging me closer, either. I pull back.
“What are you doing, Blake?” she whispers.
“Claiming my girl.”
Her gaze skips away. “I’m not yours.”
My arms wrap around her waist, tugging her against me. “Yeah, you are. You’ve been waiting for this day as much as I have.”
One corner of her mouth twists down. It’s an irresistible gesture she’s done since she was a kid. I’ve always found it cute.
Now? It’s fucking hot.
My lips seal over hers again. This time, she opens for me, slides her hands over my chest, twists her fingers in my flannel shirt, and pulls me closer. My hands slide from her waist to her ass, pulling her against me. She wraps her arms around my neck, holding on to me as I lift her off her feet and carry her to her bedroom.
I kick that door shut, too.
I’ve got fucking hornets buzzing in my stomach. I’ve thought about this for longer than is wise to admit. Yet I’m nervous.
We break our kiss.
“Marcel?” she asks.
“Your brother ain’t comin’ home any time soon.” Now isn’t the time to talk about my best friend. We’ll deal with him later.
Reaching out, I rub my knuckles over her cheek, then cup her jaw and pull her to me for another kiss. I’ve never loved kissing anyone the way I love kissing Heidi. Even if that’s all she lets me do today, I’ll be a satisfied man.

Yes! What a great new story from author Autumn Jones Lake who continues her stories in the Lost Kings MC world. More Than Miles held a lot of surprises and the romance was very sexy and steamy. The triangle between Axel ,Heidi and Murphy is one of surprises and angst yet one of the best stories I have read in a while. The journey that Heidi goes on in this book, where she determines who she is and who she wants will gripe you and make you want to alternately hug her and shake her at the same time. Both men in this story are super sexy and super alpha-yumm. My favorite type of men.
Murphy is not a new character, we have seen him in previous books and his love and feelings for Heidi have been evident. He couldn’t claim Heidi but now, in this story, he is finally ready –she isn’t young anymore and he was tired of watching her date a prospect, Axel from his club .
Heidi, our heroine, has been so in love with Murphy for years , ever since she has come to the club and met him. Murphy has been the man of her dreams and have been there for her thru thick and thin yet he has been shutting himself out of her life of late so Heidi has been acting like a brat, acting out, letting her mouth run wild. At times, in the beginning I thought she seriously needed an attitude adjustment and that I could see why Murphy wasn’t with her but then if you dig deeper, well the attitude is a protection, a shield and this girl has her own demons she is fighting. Into her life comes Axel, he is the man who gets to be her first in almost everything. Thru many twists and turns, Heidi comes to many crossroads in decisions on who she will be with after a huge surprise drops on her. Is it the right decision? Will she live to regret it?
I found myself glued to this story and watched the triangle play out and watched how these two men took control and helped Heidi come into herself, become the woman she needed to be and at the same time, this story brought back so many characters from the past books that I loved. Hope and Rock featured in this story and it was great seeing them. Heidi and Murphy really held my heart in this book and I hope to read more about them in later books. This is one of the longest books in the series but I understand why after reading this story. You will fall in love with all the MC in this story although one MC will lose his/her shine at one point. The ending had was fantastic and couldn’t have gone any better.
My rating: 4.8 stars ****
