A Bookworm Review by Ana
I give this book 5 stars!
Protect our loved ones can make us do things we might regret…
Have a look at the blurb:
Everything changed two years ago.
Evelyn Young was only eighteen when she agreed to marry an outlaw biker. There was no other way for her to pay the medical bills her mother was accruing, so she said goodbye to her longtime best friend Cedric Crawford and ran away with the bad boy.
Not a day goes by that Evelyn doesn’t miss her old life with Cedric. The only way she survives with an abusive spouse is by reminding herself that her mother is still thankfully fighting for her life.
Evelyn never thought she would ever see Cedric again; but while she was busy popping pills to stay numb, Cedric’s been making plans.
When Cedric finally comes back into Evelyn’s life, he’s no longer the sweet, innocent boy she left behind. He’s a heck of a lot bigger with sexy tattoos and a brand-new leather cut – a symbol of the badass man he’s become.
Not a man but a Savage King.
And a King will do whatever it takes to save his Queen.
It’s been a while since I had a book from these two and from these series that I love so freaking much.
Their books hold a big piece of my heart and I always want more.
Lane Hart and DB West created this MC series that I really love… Love… And of course, being an MC… You know that I’m addicted to this genre.
Cedric is the from the Savage Kings MC and you must read the other books from this series first. Trust me… You’ll love them.
This new book explores the lives of Cedric and Evelyn.
Cedric has a heart bigger than the world and 90% of it belongs to Evelyn. He loves her but he can’t ruin their friendship telling her his true feelings.
The day the left his life he made a vow…
Evelyn has a horrible life since the day she decided to marry her husband to help her mom.
By doing so, she left her best friend behind and committed to living a life full of pain and so much more…
This book just mailed it. Another freaking awesome story to keep my love even bigger.
Superb plot, very well written, super engaging and intense.
It was one brutal chapter after the other… Dayum…
We have some intense scenes but also some hot stuff too.
It was marvelous to have news from the other characters from this series.
And it’s over… I don’t know if I’m happy or if I’ll cry my eyes out…
Hey… Don’t make any conclusions yet. Let me explain.
I’m freaking happy because this book was another masterpiece and each chapter grabbed my attention…
But I’m so sad and want to cry because this series is over.
It was 12 books… 12…you hear me right. 12 books full of sassiness, drama, hot stuff, crime, punishment, loyalty, but first of all, and the more important thing, it was the theme each book approached.
We saw domestic violence, abuse, rape, substance abuse and violence in the general.
It was brutal the way these authors exploded each theme and make each and everyone aware of these things.
Lane and DB… Shay can I say that I haven’t said before?
Nothing, I guess. But I can say again that you guys rock and have created one of my favorite series of all times.
I can’t wait for what’s about to come…
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
A Few Teasers:
“You’re a nice guy, Cedric, and-and I don’t know what I would’ve done without you over the last few years,” Evelyn says in a rush while her fingers swipe away the tears and mascara from underneath each of her eyes. “I’m going to…I’m going to miss you so much.”
“Miss me?” I repeat in confusion. “What are you talking about, Ev? We live five minutes away from each other and will both be going to the same community college in a few weeks. You may be studying nursing or whatever while I take the general education classes, but we’ll still see each other all the time!”
“No, we won’t,” she says with an adamant shake of her head.
“We won’t?” I snap at her, hurt and angry that she’s all of a sudden changed her mind. We made these plans together more than a year ago, both of us agreeing to stay here with each other. I could’ve gone to Appalachian or USC, but I stayed for her.
“I’m not going to school,” she tells me.
“Why not?” I ask. “If it’s about money, I told you we can get part-time jobs to help cover the books and tuition. It’s only a few thousand.”
“I don’t…I don’t want to talk about it,” she says, combing her fingers through the front of her long hair, her dark eyes red-rimmed and frantic.
“Well, too bad because I do want to talk about it!” I argue. “You owe me an explanation, Ev.”
“You-you have no idea what it’s like to watch the life drain out of your mama a little more each day!” she exclaims.
“You’re right. I don’t. And if there was anything I could do to help you or Rita, you know I would,” I say as I pull her to me for a crushing hug. I feel like she’s slipping through my fingers like sand and there’s not a damn thing I can do to stop it. “Tell me what I can do, and I’ll do it,” I breathe into her hair. I would do anything in the world for her.
“Please, Cedric,” Ev says as her face presses into my scrawny chest and her body shakes from her sobs. “I-I have to leave. Don’t make this any harder than it already is!”
“I don’t even know what this is!” I say in frustration as I continue to hold her. “But you’re not leaving yet. Not until we figure this out. Together. I hate seeing you hurting, just like you hate to see your mom in pain, because…because I love you.”
I can’t believe I finally said it, the three words that I’ve wanted to tell her since we were fourteen. Maybe ever since the day we met on the beach when we were ten – the sad girl who looked lost and alone and needed a friend. I couldn’t stop thinking about her that night while I made the bracelet for her. I gave it to her the first day of school, and years later she still wears it. In fact, I’ve never seen her take it off.
