Precarious by Bella Jewel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 🙂😧🤫
The heroine: Ash (a.k.a. Wildcard) – she is a prison guard and is called Wildcard by the prisoners because she is a woman in a man’s job and can take a man twice her size down. She lives with Claire and Leo, Claire is a fun loving blonde while Leo owns his own tattoo parlor and fights at night. She likes the company even though she is independent.
The Heroes: Beau (a.k.a. Krypt) – he is a gorgeous member of the Jokers Wrath Motorcycle Club and was arrested for Murdering a family in a local diner. He ends up in Ash’s prison the same day the news hits about the murder. Beau doesn’t talk much.
The Story: Ash finds some of the other guards beating up Beau in his cell and she thinks something shady is going on while the other guards say that Beau attacked them and the camera’s just happened to be down at the time. Though Ash knows the camera’s don’t just go down like that. The next time something happens, the guards make sure Beau gets transferred to another facility for fighting and Ash figures something is up, especially when the usually guard says he has a meeting and can’t be in the truck and Ash has to go, but there isn’t much she can do about it.
Charles Lawrence and Stella Bloom did the narration on this one. It was told in dual points of view, though mostly in Ash’s POV. Stella Bloom has a very clear but not harsh voice which was perfect for Ash. She has a bit of an accent but not a huge one. I have never heard Charles Lawrence before but he did a good job.
Though there were some major plot holes in the story, I kind of liked the conflict in the story. The Jokers Wrath MC had a war going on with a rival MC and their president, there were dirty prison guards, a conspiracy, a prison escape, the two main characters hiding out together and more.
