Lies, misunderstanding, betrayal and silence are the bitter pills they swallow daily as the marriage they thought would last forever begins to unravel. It isn’t until club rivalries threaten to shatter their entire world that they realize how much they have to fight for.
When things get rough and real, they’re forced to remember just how deep their love goes.

To Each Her Own...
Well, Hayley Faiman went out with her sexual guns a blazin' on the final book in the Notorious Devils Series! This last installment has more sex than all of the others combined it seemed and then some. Whew! Who knew Camo was such a hottie?!?
The title of this review pretty much is how I felt about Camo and Ivy's story. Not my cup of tea what so ever, but I did enjoy reading about them and thier marital struggles. Especially when Camo thinks he knows what he wants and Ivy steps up to the plate, instantly backing the big guy down. Probably my favorite part.
While this is Camo and Ivy's story, we get all other members of the club and wives involved, as well as the usual club threats to throw things off balance a little bit. In the last book it was obvious that Camo and Ivy were having problems in thier marriage. Years go by, things get stale and with the whores at the club house, Camo is tempted daily.
We go along with Camo and Ivy as they try and work things out, all the while the kids are moving to the forefront of the story. I was excited, even more so when I got to the end of the book and the kid's stories were expanded upon. Hayley Faiman definitely has a fan in me and if the kids get a series, I am all in.
The book is well written and sexual as all get out. Like I said, all past club members and Old Ladies are accounted for and we are caught up to speed on them. Questions get answered and more. The way I see it, there is new Notorious Devil stories to be told. I'll miss the OG's, but am ready for the young blood!
4.5 Stars from Renee!

This is Ivy and West (Camo)‘s story. Ivy has always loved Camo. They have been married for 15 years but that marriage has slowly been unraveling. Love is not always enough to hold two people together who are falling apart. Camo loves his wife but knows he has been pulling away. His club allows him to explore things that should never touch his wife. Lies, misunderstandings, silence, and betrayal are slowly breaking his marriage up. When a club rivalries threatens everything Camo must figure who is worth the fight. Can he have the club and his family also or has he lost his family forever?

I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.
I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.
4.5 Stars from Brianna!
What an epic ending with a bright future! Holy smokes y'all.... it's getting all kinds of hot in here.... and real, so very real in a lot of ways. Hayley Faiman is back with a new, sexy, suspenseful, broken yet powerful installment in this freaking brilliant series and I just couldn't get enough.
Rough and Real is the seventh book in this incredible series and while it technically can be read as a standalone, this series is so good...so addicting... so epic, that you are going to want to start at the beginning. Every time we get a new one, I can't help but get lost in the lives of all the Notorious Devils and I swear I never want to leave their world. The guys are so so bad but in such the best ways and the ladies, well, they can totally hold their own...and handle their rough guys.
Is love enough? Marriage is complicated, hard, and can be downright ugly. For Ivy and Camo, they are living it. Faiman rocked my world with this one, shaking me to my core at times and leaving me such a mess at moments but by the end, it was all worth it.
In this book, we focus on Ivy and Camo (West) living and breathing their complicated struggle that will tug at your heart, rip you to pieces, and leave you all in your feelings...some in great ways and others not so much. Secrets. Lies. Misunderstandings. Twists. Forgiveness. Redemption. A forever love. Camo and Ivy will have you on the edge of your seat, start to finish.... along with everybody else we have met. Every single moment in Rough and Ready for unforgettable and I wouldn't have had it any other way.
Strength. Love. Determination. Brotherhood. Loyalty. Protection. Family. That's what they are about. Have you meet your favorite devil yet?
I highly recommend this book and series.
