Warning: This book contains adult subject matter and steamy sexual content. This book is meant as a work of fiction and meant to entertain, not to depict any real life motorcycle club or real life events.
If you love motorcycle club romances, sexy-hot overprotective alpha males and kick-ass heroines with hellish attitude, then this book is definitely for you.
I went into retaliation completely blind and at first had no idea what to expect but gladly this book did not disappoint me...Thank God!
I was completely sucked into this book from it's very first page. It kept me on the edge the entire time. Retaliation was full of twists and suspense, I was just unable to predict what was going to happen and it left me so frustrated that I wanted to smash my head into the wall. **Ok, Smashing my head part is a bit exaggerated but yeah it left me uneasy, I don't like to be kept in the dark. **
Retaliation revolves around the lives of Roanne Frazier and Jensen stone. The story starts with roanne whose life is turned upside down after she witnesses her father's car erupting into flames. The whole incident leaves her utterly shaken and bewildered .Enters Jensen stone and like a knight in the shinning armor, he rescues her from the shackles of the irritating detectives and feds.
But wait!! it doesn't end here, they also have a history together. Let's go into the flashback!!
Roanne's and Jensen's fathers were best friends so they spent their childhood together and were inseparable but everything changed the moment Jensen left Roanne and joined twisted mayhem MC. So now Roanne hates Jensen for leaving her but Jensen has his way with her and he knows how to handle the bitchy attitude of his duchess (Roanne).
As the story continues secrets are revealed and roanne realizes that her entire life has been a lie. As the truth unfolds, Roanne becomes prone to danger but Jensen would do anything to keep the love of his life safe. This was one hell of a roller coaster ride, full of action and gunfights and smuttiness.
So all in all this was a great read for me and I do recommend this book. I am sure Retaliation won't disappoint you.
Jensen-I loved him, he was controlled, a perfect alpha-male, dirty talker and hot as hell. He wore confidence as his second skin.
Roanne-I loved her as well. She was not a weak, crying sitting in the corner types heroine. She was strong and embraced what life threw at her.
Supporting Characters- Every character in this book was amazing. I loved Schrader the most. He was the most charming character with an easy going attitude. He solely contributed in adding humor to the story. The scene in which he took a bullet to his ass was damn funny and the way he reacted towards the serious situations was just insane.
Umm, my favorite scene here was the proposal scene. I loved how Jensen confessed his undying love for Roanne in the middle of their fight. They were just arguing and he dropped the love bomb and Roanne was like "Are you serious?, duh". And as mentioned above the scene when Schrader took a bullet to his ass and decided to get it framed because it was his first time getting shot at made me laugh out loud.
