Release date: September 2, 2013
My rating: 4.25 stars
SynopsisWhile the chaos and bloodshed have slowed for a short period, life is never quiet in the world of Breakneck. The club is taking time to regroup from internal betrayal and the changing of the guard in a rival group.
Zig Zag became a father at the age of thirteen. While raising a child has never been easy, now his eighteen year old daughter Tatiana makes his life downright hard. She has caught the eye of Travis, the new President of the rival MC Gunners, but all she really wants is Shadow, the newest addition to the Breakneck family. When Shadow’s rejection sends Tatiana running from the only family, home, and safety she’s ever known, ZZ is crazy with worry. The distraction caused by Tatiana’s disappearance could prove to be Zig Zag’s downfall.
If that isn’t enough, ZZ finds himself rampantly attracted to the one and only Storm. She’s beautiful, quick and witty. Their friendship is the one thing that keeps him from growing crazy, and Storm stands by ZZ through all the turmoil. Zig Zag is not accustomed to hearing the word no, so Storm’s constant withstanding just draws him in deeper. Their friendship is one thing keeping him from going crazy, until one night…
The club is regrouping and rebuilding from the mayhem known as the Russian Mafia. A hit is ordered on Tatiana, Storm, Winter, and Piper.
Tatiana’s egg donor reveals secrets that a thirteen year old Zig Zag was too young to understand.
Braxxon is out of reach while he helps Greg Cage deal with some dirty business.
Bloodshed… Secrets… Betrayal… Trauma… Welcome back to the Breakneck world.
I am not sure where to start. This book is still on my mind days after reading it! It went so fast, I couldn’t believe I finished it! I haven’t read the first book, which I plan to very soon. I am in love with this genre or maybe just the author. Who knows!
There is nothing better than love and war! And not the war you think! Biker gang war. I never thought I would like something like this! I will admit, I had a hard time in the beginning. I get these are bikers, but the language (not the swearing) was hard for me to get used to. I am a grammar Nazi. So the usage of improper grammar bugged me at first. I eventually got over it. It fit the characters. If it would have been written in perfect English then the characters would have lost their appeal.
There is much going on in this book. Rival biker gangs at war. Russian mobsters coming for lives. No one knows who to trust. Throw in some love interests. Shake it all up and you have one rip-roaring, can’t put the book down kind of book!
The relationships in this book are realistic. Believable. Lovable. There isn’t a character I didn’t like. I don’t think I was supposed to, was I? If so, I couldn’t tell! The list of characters makes up one big family who knows the true meaning of family. They all would lay down their lives for one another.
When things really get rip-roaring in this story, you find yourself forgetting that you are reading a book. It is like watching a movie in your head! I just can’t explain it! I really don’t want to explain it because then I would be giving away many secrets that would ruin it for you!
All in all, this is a book I would recommend to just about anyone I know that likes to read—no matter what their preference! I am looking forward to reading the previous book in this series!
