A loud crash jolted me back into the reality of the situation. I waited for more gunfire, but all that followed the toppling dresser was harsh, ragged breathing. I wasn’t sure if the sounds were my own or from those who had just entered the room.
Then one of them spoke.
A man with a deep, gravelly voice. A voice which sent shivers of fear and fascination deep into my soul. The mixture of feelings confused me, but I had no time to delve into what they really meant. The only focus in the forefront of my disheveled mind was to figure out how to survive.
Would I beg for my life? Would I appear weak in the face of the enemy? I couldn’t answer with certainty, and that alone was disarming. I had no idea what to do, what to say or how to feel.
Luckily, the decision was stolen from me the instant my eyes found him.
A tall, broad man stalked forward, every step closer
deciding my fate. My head had instinctually risen so I could see who was coming for me, and what I saw stopped my heart. While my soon-to-be captor was covered in blood, no doubt from his up-close-and-personal bloodshed of my fellow Savages, his prowess shined through. His pale blue eyes pinned me defenseless, his hair short and cropped to his head, a trimmed beard covering his sharp jawline. Blood dripped from his cheeks, and I instantly wondered if he’d been hurt.
The man who had come to kidnap me was the most handsome man I’d ever laid eyes on. But I vowed then and there to never fall prey to his charms, if ever he decided to enchant me with them. Although I hated my club, my father and Vex, I wasn’t a traitor. And falling for the enemy was the worst kind of sin to be committed in our ruthless, deadly world.
Shit, as far as I knew, he could be the Devil’s nephew, just as brutal and evil as my father and Vex.
Reaching forward, his hand was suddenly thrust into my personal space. Maybe if I close my eyes they’ll all go away. Maybe it’ll all be an awful dream, a nightmare I’ll soon wake up from. Shutting my lids tight, I squeezed my hands over my ears and drowned out the sounds in hope everything would return back to normal.
I’d never wished for my life more than I did right then, which was probably the saddest revelation I’d ever had.

4 of 5 Stars


Ok, once I stopped STARING at the cover I read the book.

Sully and Marek were combustible together. He’s a prick, the stereotypical romance club prez – young, dark, violent, demanding, possessive, controlling, and hot. Why did I like him? He saved Sully, he made her feel safe, and he evolved. Still caveman, still alpha, but he found room in his heart for a broken girl – all while fighting a war and trying to take his club legit. And Sully, you had no choice but to root for her. Brutalized by the club Marek stole her from, Sully came out of her shell, showed immense strength, and fought for a new life.

This is not a safe, fade to black, read. The violence was expected, the rape…I could have done without the play by play and still felt the impact. How she responded to it was what was important to me. Sully = strength.

The pace of the book was good. Was I frustrated at times? Yes, Marek struggled with his feelings, wanting to maintain his emotional distance, and it hurt Sully. But, I was never bored, the characters remained interesting throughout the book. The secondary characters, Stone especially, added depth and filled in gaps.

If you enjoy MC books, with dark themes and a$$hole alphas, this is a must read. Note, there is a bit of a cliffy regarding the storyline of taking the club legit. Can’t wait for the next book…


 

S. Nelson grew up with a love of reading and a very active imagination, never putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard until 2013.

Her passion to create was overwhelming, and within a few months she’d written her first novel, Stolen Fate. When she isn’t engrossed in creating one of the many stories rattling around inside her head, she loves to read and travel as much as she can.


She lives in the Northeast with her husband and two dogs, enjoying the ever changing seasons.
