Angelica has had far from a charmed life, but she’s still the princess of the Atlanta RTMC chapter as the daughter of its president Bud. She loves her biker family but has made a decision she wants to live outside that world.
The connection between Bash and Angelica began years ago but since she left for college, they have not been in each other’s lives. Now they are both in Chattanooga and the chemistry is undeniable and irresistible.
I loved the beginning of this story. Some have complained about the story being broken into three books. I HATE serials, but this did not come across as such to me. This story was so complete and involved, it needed to be delivered in snippets. It was NOT someone including a bunch of filler in order to spread a story out and keep charging. This was a nearly 800 page story and every word was necessary and riveting. I simply waited until all three were available and read them back to back.
Absolutely worth it!
(I AM INCLUDING THIS REVIEW ON ALL THREE BOOKS)
With all three installments of Bash now released, I decided to re-read Duke and Brain before diving into Bash. Now that I’m done, I’m still trying to process what I just read. Ms. Blevins definitely added a lot more BDSM into Bash than she has previously in this series. At times I felt like I had stepped into one of her Safeword books which I liked, but went a bit beyond my BDSM comfort zone. Just a warning, Bash gets rough. Really, really rough. No doubt, a lot of the sex scenes were hot, but several made me a tad uncomfortable.
I finished this installment extremely conflicted. Going in, I disliked Bash because of what he did to Harmony in Brain’s book. I got why he was angry with her, but he was needlessly and horribly cruel. Bash started redeeming himself and I was beginning to like him….a little. Then that business with Teresa happened. I get Bash is a pimp. This is a gritty MC series and I expect that, but that was a bad scene. I know Duke forced him, but I had a hard time seeing past it.
Angelica didn’t sit well with me either. She pulled some seriously TSTL stuff like the entire situation with Thomas that you just knew was going to be a clusterduck of epic proportions. For starters, when dipping your toe into the BDSM pool, don’t be stupid about it and let some guy you’ve basically had one date with tie you up and leave you that vulnerable. I took issue with Angelica’s relationship with Thomas. Seriously placing her MC family at risk because he gave her a few really nice orgasms…really? By the end of this installment, instead of seeing her as a strong woman who went after what she wanted, I thought she was simply unbelievably selfish.
Although I liked seeing my favorite characters, my thoughts were that the jury was still out on Bash and Angelica. I was really hoping in Vol. II she would find that brain she seemed to have lost along the way.
Can the wolf you love to hate become the wolf you love? Yep! Can a Bad-Boy-for-Real have a heart of gold underneath it all? Well a heart at least, and perhaps of tarnished silver, but fans of the previous installation (“Brain”) in the Rolling Thunder MC series will be pleased to know that Bash does have some redeeming qualities. And a seriously fine set of skills…but I digress…
This time our heroine (Angelica) is wolf herself, born and raised the over-protected daughter of an RTMC chapter President…whose protector during a formative spell, just happened to be Bash. Good Girl-wolves grow up, and Bad Boy-wolves make…amends. Occasionally, they only do so when their hand is forced.
Enter the complication. Well one of the many complications and potential complications, taking the forms of person, place and thing. It is easy to see why this story will require three volumes to tell. The beauty is, as always, the reader has no sweet clue as to exactly how, or why or when these complications will hit the fan, or how they will resolve themselves; except that it will be intense, and it won’t be pretty.
I will say I has-a-sad from this story. Well, a little sad that I know will resolve itself, but my personal hero, HE-of-Book-One, the incomparable “Duke”, is…in a spot. Not one he is used to being in, and not one I enjoy seeing him in. I have angst. I don’t do well with angst. But if what I suspect comes to bear, this is going to combine with some other events to blow this story off the charts for fans of the series.
This reader also feared the dread “Volume I cliffy”, one of the things I generally dislike most about a book with installations. For those in the same boat: fear not. This time at least, the story is left at a relatively comfortable point, buoyed by the fact that Ms. Blevins ensured Volumes II and III would follow in short order. You know that the tale is on the brink of something(s) big and I suspect I may be singing a different tune (in High C) at the end of Volume II, but that skill of hers as a storyteller…she’s got it worked out very well, and the hook is firmly planted. And while I might think I have an idea where this is going, I have never outguessed Ms. Blevins yet, and its now become a challenge!
Meantime, I let go my compunction to direct the flow and bestow TPE to her writing it her way, because damned if she doesn’t know what we readers need…and oh, okay: want as well…
