I’ve lived two lives.
One full of innocence and one full of sin.
I mourned the perfect life I was born into and made it my duty to chase the phantom who stole it from me.
Revenge, mayhem and loss are all I know.
I am the lone man—I am the wanderer.
The former nomad—now, Satan’s deadliest soldier.
The two worlds were never supposed to collide. Innocence and sin aren’t made to coexist yet somehow my past bleeds into the present and I find myself facing my biggest regret…I find myself face to face with her—the girl who got away.
The girl I let go.
The woman I’ll ruin if I stay.
Our young love was marred by violence.
Our guilt destroyed us, fate tempted us but, it was he who broke us.
They say time heals all, but all time did was dull the ache of his abandonment.
Now, dressed in leather, covered in ink the boy I mourned is now a man—a man tormented by his demons.
In another life we were everything to one another.
In this life we’re strangers.
*NOTE* Each book in the Nomad series can be read as a STANDALONE.



This is another one of those extraordinarily hard reviews to write because there is absolutely no way I will ever be able to do this book and this author's writing justice. Instead, let me just say this:

Janine Infante Bosco, you my dear talented and gifted writer have demolished me. Your Nomad series books are so outrageously addictive, so enormously intense, so heart-wrenchingly beautiful that I am nearly incapable of going about my day to day routines and responsibilities. I find myself breaking down and crying, laughing out loud and having to fan myself constantly. These stories, first Drifter and now Wanderer, are too good. I know in my soul that this book will stick with me long after I read the final page and I sit here anticipating the next story.

You truly own this genre and have found a way to not only make it sexy and romantic but above all else, you've made it realistic. To me, this is not the overly glorified MC lifestyle that is portrayed over and over again in contemporary romance (not that I don't love those, too), this is dark and gritty, violent and heartbreaking. It's also about love and trust and while there is the bad, there is also the good and that is how I find myself investing so much in the characters you've created.

I love that real life everyday issues are addressed and are not glossed over. I love that these men and women aren't perfect and are so relatable. I love to see a man like Cobra who by anyone's standards would seem intimidating and scary as a real man who doubts, who has true fears and who loves his family with everything he has. He is not a superhero but a man who is ready to fight for his people. He makes mistakes, he doesn't have all the answers and he is so far from perfect.

I really don't want to say too much about the events of the story because I honestly had fun going into this one without too much information. I read Drifter and that's all I had to go on. I enjoyed having a few "ah ha!" moments and seeing events I'd read in Drifter from a completely different person's POV. It's like a puzzle and both stories together help to put the pieces together to get the bigger picture.

While this can be read as a standalone, I personally think you get a much better idea of the story having read Drifter. There are moments that things become clearer and it was fun. There are also some dark moments in this story and they run parallel with the previous book.

I definitely recommend Wanderer. If you are a fan of MC Romance then you can not skip this one. If you like raw and gritty, sweet and sexy, you're going to love it.

5+++ Stars!

I’m a drifter. A man born to ride through this world alone. There used to be a time when I thought I was the rescuing type. I enlisted in the Marines and made it my duty—I was going to save lives. I was going to be a true American hero. But God had another plan. Or maybe Satan did. For everything I touch finds mortality. I’m no hero. I’m nothing. I’m a veteran biker, a former nomad who survived war only to live in hell. Now I ride with the Satan’s Knights of Brooklyn and I’m drifting into a different kind of chaos. The kind that revolves around a pretty girl with intoxicating green eyes. A girl who has the power to turn me inside out. A girl who doesn’t need anyone to rescue her because she’s her own savior. Until she’s not. But a man plagued by war and the devil inside him can never be her hero.
Gina Spinelli
Strong. Independent. Fierce. They are the three things I strived to be. But sometimes being successful can be lonely. Sometimes a girl just wants to be a girl and have someone take care of her. Maybe even love her. Sometimes the strong become vulnerable. Or worse, the victor becomes the victim. Sometimes we lose control or in my case it’s stripped from you. Defeated. Broken. Haunted. They are the three things I have become. In my darkest hour I admit defeat. In my darkest hour I need one person. I need him. Stryker.

***NOTE: DRIFTER is a STANDALONE novel. Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, sensitive subjects, offensive language, and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up. ***
