Forgive Me Father (Rebel Kings MC #3) by Garrett Leigh

Forgive me Father is the 3rd book in the Rebel Kings MC series.

From the blurb:

Expect: a sizzling hurt/comfort MM romance with a damaged chaplain and a dark-souled enforcer with a tender-hearted secret.

“I gave my darkest secrets to a man who doesn’t exist.”


" don’t understand.”

Mateo lowered himself to sit, still vibrating with the need to fix me, the way he always did. “Then tell me. Explain it like I’m the simplest idiot you’ve ever met.”

I can’t. I’d never told anyone. Not the judge, the jury, or the legal aid barrister who’d written me off before she’d ever met me. But as I drowned in Mateo’s affection, in a love I’d done nothing to deserve, the words came tumbling out.

Bad words.

Dark words.

Darker than sin.

Darker, even, than Mateo’s battered soul and the secrets I didn’t know about yet.

I thought those words would shatter me.

Shatter us.

But when the devil came for us, it wasn’t mine.

It was Mateo’s, and the man I’d trusted with my fragile heart was a stranger more broken than his scars could ever show.

Forgive Me Father is a continuation of the best-selling Rebel Kings MC series. Content warning for violence and sexual trauma.

Sheena's Review:

This is the third in the Rebel Kings MC series, and the first to feature a different couple. This is the turn of Embry, and Mateo and I loved their story. I'm so invested in the Rebel Kings MC now, I was so intrigued with both guys when we met them in the first two books and their story certainly didn't disappoint. There's two threads here of a story, really. The thread of Mateo's story and the overarching story with the MC, too, and both tie neatly together in this book.

I loved both Embry and Mateo, both have been through so much and truly belong together. I loved the reveal of Mateo's story. I knew he was hiding something, but it was so much bigger than I expected it would be. Embry too has been through a lot and is really such a strong character, and I also loved the easter egg of him being Joe's cousin (from the Skins series: Whisper).

I couldn't put this down once I started it. It's everything I want from a Garrett book, dark, angsty, twisty, yet heartwarming and everything works out in the end.
