Way too short!
The book was great, like all the others in the series. However it was too short and not as steamy as the rest. Though it is marketed as a novella, so we really shouldn’t complain about it beings too short. It did serve its purpose in getting me all in and completely exited for the next few books, which will be going back to the formula from the beginning with a two books on the character of Pike, who was introduced in the book N9ne.
Frankly I don’t remember pike, so before the next book comes out in March I will reread N9ne. I loved it so it won’t be a problem. Forgetting is a problem when you start to get older, plus I read nearly 500 books last year so That makes it hard too. Though I did remember enough about the early books for this one to be no problem.
It starts off with Ray (a.k.a. Doe), pregnant with a new baby. Her and King already have three kids, Max who is King’s daughter who was in foster care when King got out of prison, but Ray has since adopted, Sammy who Ray had at age fifteen and their first child together Nicole Grace the toddler (Named Grace for the older woman who took young King, Preppy and Bear under her wing and has since died).
Ray has something going on with her that she is not talking about, and King is upset that she isn’t talking. She is less than a month from giving birth and a hurricane is nearing Florida. Also King had a shipment of cocaine ripped off by someone claiming to be the new King of the causeway. Since this is a novella, I don’t want to give any more away than that, but I will say that the gang is back for this book.
Preppy plays a big role in the book, and I am completely in love with him. He is hilarious as ever. N9ne makes a few small appearances and Bear is included also. Bear and Prep argue as much as ever, and King is a badass as always. Preppy and Dre have their son Bo, who is so like Preppy despite being adopted and they also have twin girls, Taylor and Miley.
“How will the people we killin’ going to know it’s a killin’ shed if there’s no sign?”
“They will know, and so will the cops,” Bear points out, dropping his bag at his feet.
Preppy pointing to the sign. “No, they would never think that a place with a sign that says killin’ shed is an actual killin’ shed. Duh, Bear, it’s common reverse psychology. Or don’t you have books at your big bad biker playhouse?”
“Clubhouse,” Bear growls.
This book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, which is expected since it is setting up the next book. I for one can’t wait and I wish I could get ARCs of T.M.Fraziers books because I just don’t want to wait until March. But alas, I will have to.
