This one is making waves (everyone appears to be loving it) and it sure was good! Biker book/kidnap book that gave me chills from the start. I mean… wow, right? Hopping on the back of a stranger’s bike and realizing he’s not taking you where you asked him to? Eeeeeep!!! Then… arriving at the biker compound and realizing there is no going back. She was kidnapped.
Yep. I was IN!
I was in for pretty much all of it, and I read with gusto, ’cause I knew *something* blew everyone’s mind at some point, and I couldn’t wait for that reaction.
Shawnee: Oh! This book TOTALLY satisfied!!! This was what I called as good as my fix for a book that compares to the…(
TwilightBeautifulDisasterEasyT houghtless50ShadesANYKristenAs hleyBook!) fix. I wouldn’t say this book was “romantic” to me and I personally wouldn’t have gone for *****, BUT it was soooo well written and I’m soooo picky these days! The depth of the characters and the flow of the story was so great!!!! Thanks for recommending.
Jean: Maryse, did you like Nine Minutes? I’m hearing great things!
Lise: Oh Yay… can’t wait to see what you think of this one. I still have not moved on… Enjoy!
Renee: Oh my god! I just finished and then reread the ending. I didn’t want to like them but they sucked me into their world can’wait for *****’s book. Can ‘t stop thinking about it. None of my friends have read this yet. Going crazy
Kayla: I came here searching for a review from you or a support group for this book. I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on this! I have so many mixed emotions! It was an amazing book but I just cannot explain how I feel! I have no clue how to move on from this!!
Shell: Maryse I have just started this amazing book and I am in shock and can’t believe how the book has started. That ‘Prologue’ had me and now I just don’t want to do anything but finish this book. We might all need a group hug after we finish it.
Amber: Ugh… Yes it was a good book but my heart is broken and I feel like someone very close to me has died. I really try hard to avoid books that leave me a mess after I’m done. I need a hug for sure. I really considered not reading it after the prologue. But then I found a review from another reader that said that she was disenchanted with the prologue but was so glad she continued on. I’m not sure I’m glad at all.,,
Christa: I’m half way through and I can’t stop reading!!! Soo good
Amanda: I loved this book! I just don’t know how I’m going to make waiting so long for the next book!!!!
Yep. VERY GOOD! I was reading with gusto through the first half, and very excited for this biker ride!
But… there was a certain… disconnect on my behalf. It almost read as a journal. Sorta like multiple diary entries that spanned years and yet… skipped a lot of stuff. Maybe too much for me. Sometimes, it was stuff that I think could have had me attaching myself more to the various love interests (and events) that presented themselves. I felt ‘em, I “got it” but I wasn’t specifically rooting for anyone in particular. In a way they were all bad-good guys (depending on the circumstance), and I just… I dunno. You know?
Some were bad by association, forced into a life of bad-guy-ism, but had such a tragic beginning that you couldn’t help but hope…
Then there were those that were absolute bad-guys (no mistaking their danger-factor) and yet, for such a bad guy, he was treating her just soooooo good. Crush-time! Sorta. I guess, if you can consider treating a “prisoner” good. So yeah… there was that touch of romantic angst going on.
And then… that twist. I totally can’t say, but… whoa. I mean… wow, right? But… then again. I was sort of, hrmmmm really? I read back again, wondered what I was missing. It was a twist to me that once revealed was pretty obvious, or should I say, understandable, but considering many of our fellow reader’s reactions, I think I missed something.
Did I miss something? I think I’ll stalk the “Nine Minutes Spoiler forum” and see what I’ve missed. ‘Cause I know I did. I must’ve. Right?
Mind you, I hear there’s a book #2 on the way, so maybe I’ll be in even harder the 2nd time around.
Tracie: I just finished 9 minutes last night . Loved it
Melanie: I just finished this. LOVED it. So unexpectedly good!
Lindsee: Finished it this morning it was so good. Maryse are you team Grunt or team Grizz?
Maryse: I *think* I was Grunt… there was just not “enough” of either of them for me to be really team anyone…
Brenae: Finished today and LOVED it!!
Vickie: Loved it! I need more!!
Tracie: was Grunt till the end .. Then I wanted to ******
Lindsee: I’m torn they both loved her so hard
Sadie: Maryse, are you living in my head? My thoughts exactly. Great review.
Kelly: Maryse, thank you for putting into words exactly what I felt was missing from the book. I really enjoyed it and it kept my attention, so much so that I barely glanced at another book. When I read all the massive love for it I doubted myself and started to think more about it. I felt detached from the actual “romance/triangle”. It didn’t delve deep enough into it. It was as if we were told what the great love affair was rather than live it through with them.
