Club Ties (TheTrinity Falls Series) Perfect Paperback – 2012
|New from||Used from|
Mox is now a Brawer by blood, but he has never felt more like an outsider. His new place in the family comes at a high cost to the woman who raised him. Teamed with the blood on his hands, secrets and guilt build a wall between them that he doesn’t know how to tear down. Escaping the tension at home, he ventures out in an ice storm only to find his future huddled beside a dumpster. Running for her life, Eva ironically, only wants to die. Slipping the chains of her relationship with playboy mobster, Rocco Soriano, she has nowhere to turn. An offer of safe harbor by Mox and his motorcycle brethren buys her time, but she knows the danger they’re putting themselves in. She’s no stranger to the game between a man and a woman, but somewhere along the line, the rules get blurred. Neither Mox, nor Eva, believe love is in the cards for them, but fate disagrees. But then, just when she finds something worth living for, she has to make a choice between his life and hers.

That aside, I'm having a little trouble buying it. Granted, I've never been in an abusive relationship, I'm having a real hard time wrapping my head around all these battered women getting off on spanking. I keep reading over these parts and just feeling confused and a little bit put-off by it honestly, it doesn't seem to me like you ought to be spanking a battered woman. Doesn't seem very therapeutic. Maybe I just don't get it.
Overall, it feels like most of the characters, if not blatant knock-offs of characters from SOA, feel more like archetypes and stereotypes than real, thought out and original people. Even the sadist ex feels like the average villain in a romance book. The story, while attempting to be suspenseful, is kind of predictable. Oh, and the beginning feels rushed, the author was too lazy to write about 'Mox' and Eva building a relationship so she resorted to love at first sight. Granted, this is a romance novel, I don't expect perfect realism, but I'd think someone would be questioning the idea of them moving in together after four days together. And falling totally in love within the week. And where does his brother keep going while they're having screaming sex?
I did like the book at first, I was even able to put aside the fact that I felt like I was reading an SOA fanfiction or plagiarism, but the longer it went on, the more my patience was tried, and the more I felt like I was wasting my time. That initial "hey this isn't half-bad despite the grammatical errors" moment is really the only reason it's not a one star review.
Mox was a staggering combination of fierce and sweet, demonstrating the same protective streak Ginny wields. Their relationship and the deep bond they share, despite the fact that he is not her child was definitely one of my favorite aspects of this story. They both struggle with emotional issues, uncertainties, and more than anything, he wants to see her come back to being the strong, vivacious woman she used to be.
Then we meet Eva: a shy, quiet, and scared woman with a tortured past. It's obvious she's hiding from someone, and again, Mox's need to protect and defend rise to the surface. Him and his brother take her in, never knowing what sort of monster lurks around the corner--hunting and fuming---determined to bring what's his crawling back to heel. The passages with Rocco and the thoughts that went through his head were nothing short of chilling.
Club Ties was a thrilling read full of lush character development and suspenseful twists. There were moments where I laughed, and others where I held my breath in fearful anticipation of what was to come. You can't help but fall in love right along with Mox and Eva, hoping against hope they find a way to pull through. The challenges this family and group of friends face this time around will keep you on the edge of your seat. The villainous Rocco and the Soriano crime family prove to be worthy adversaries--ones that may just bring the Lords of Mayhem to their knees.
I can't wait to see what the third book brings!
Mox finds Eva hiding beside garbage bins in the snow and she is frozen almost to death. Mox instantly goes into protection mode and takes care of her giving her warmth and a safe place to hide. The two grow closer and as Eva trys desperately to put her demons behind her and trust that Mox is not Rocco (which he is so totally the opposite he is just adorable - in a totally badass alpha biker way of course). Slowly we find out more and more about what has happened to her and its heartbreaking and she is terrified that Rocco will find her and not only hurt her but kill Mox.
Mox vows that nothing will happen to her and he enlists the help of the whole Justice MC to help. Both Zeke & Ginny are there to help and protect her also, especially Ginny as she has some firsthand experience with some of the things Eva has been through, which gives Eva the strength to fight for what she wants. Eventually as with all things, her past catches up with her and threatens everything that has been built between Mox and her. We travel down a road of bumps, roundabouts and hairpin turns as Eva, Mox & the MC take on Rocco and his gang of thugs. The outcome, well you will have to read the book to find out... :-) this is a great 2nd book in the series and i can't wait for # 3 to come out.
