From the Author

This book began its life folded into the pages of another. In the midst of the whirlwind that surrounded writing Jase, with dismay I realized another strong voice had made his presence known, taking over whole sections of the book. In many ways he derailed the story I wanted to tell about Jase and DeeDee, because Lane Robinson had a very different agenda.

So, over the 2014 Christmas holidays, that is how Gunny came to be brutally ripped from the manuscript of his birthplace. When I had cut all the scenes that didn't have a place in Jase, there were nearly fifty-thousand words in a cheekily titled document sitting off to the side called PushyBastard.

I had assured him his own book, and now I had to live up to that promise. Another few weeks and I fell into a comfortable rhythm of rising from bed at 5:30 a.m. to write on Gunny, then heading to work, and going home to labor on Jase in the evenings. Advancing both manuscripts in parallel was challenging, but some aspects of their stories were so intertwined the words flowed easily.

Then...one day, I suddenly recognized Gunny the character. I realized who had inspired my mind to imagine this damaged soul. And once I knew who he was, I understood there was so much more of his story to tell than just about his relationship with Jase's sister, or his part in the Rebel family. So much more, because his tale is one of loss and pain, tempered by redemption and love.

Who is he? He's a combination of people, the genesis of which can be found in a chance meeting, deep in the woods in southern Indiana. In the spring of 2014 I hiked Knobstone Trail. While on trail I met a hiker, a young man who called himself Jackrabbit Joe.

Joe was an Army veteran dealing with severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). You'll likely recognize that first meeting in a scene in this book, and I sincerely hope, since told from Gunny/Joe's viewpoint, it does not convey the alarm felt on waking in the early morning to find my campsite had been invaded during the night by a man who seemed damaged in ways that seemed both dangerous and frightening. I would never want Gunny to feel how terrified he made Peepers with his outbursts and angry language over trail conditions and other random things, or how alarmed she was by his very presence.

Over the next few days, I was blessed to get to know Joe. And fortunately for me, over those hours and days, the comfortable familiarity we developed stripped the veneer of fear from my interactions with him. Even now, more than a year later, I retain an ashamed memory of those first minutes, and a belated recognition of how differences can make people frightening. Men like Joe and Gunny need understanding and acceptance, not made to feel ostracized even more than their disorder already makes them.

As the writing of this story progressed, as I typically do, I sought out experts on a variety of things. Through my connections, I found a veteran closer to home who was willing to talk to me. Sharing the challenges of living every day staring at the world through the patina of stresses and scenes left behind in his mind by war.

Mikael, an Army vet, suffers from PTSD. For him it has stolen much of the life he led before being deployed overseas. His job--no longer suitable. His family--fearful of his outbursts, have removed themselves from the equation for now. His friends--staunch and supportive, protect him in ways he doesn't even recognize, such as chaperoning his interactions with me to ensure everything went smoothly. Mikael reassured me that he feels his service had meaning, and he will never regret his decision to enlist and serve. He is hopeful things will all work out in the end, and I believe right alongside him that they will. I am humbled in his presence.

Many other people were essential in ensuring this book made it to this stage, where you, the reader, can hold it in your hand or read it on your tablet. And, by the way, I don't want to forget to say thank you for reading, for wanting, for loving these characters as I do. Without you, none of this would be possible. <3 Muuwah!

In no particular order, here are the 'thank yous' for my peeps:
My ever-lovin' critique partners: Kristen, Hollie, LeeAnn, Kay, Brittney, and the intrepid MirandaPanda. Your honest opinions will forever be treasured. Thank you.

Sara Eirew, your photography is amazing, and I am blessed that you had this shot embodying passionate possession in your portfolio for this oh-so unexpected book. The model, and your art, are remarkable, and the cover by Melissa Gill builds on the intensity captured by your lens. Mandy Hollis, your images are no less stunning, and the dancer picture on the back cover conveys all that is Sharon in ways that mean words are unneeded. Thank you.

Kayla, Becky, and the HTE betas, I am so grateful for your hard work. As always, you make these stories, and my life, better. Thanks!

I can't forget to thank my personal motorcycle men, members of clubs across many states including Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Texas, and New Mexico. Love the feedback, and I love you all so freakin' hard. And, Dino? I hope this book is filled with everything you've been asking for, babe. Pucker up!

I do hope this story respects the dedication and sacrifice of the veterans and others I met during this journey, and if it brings to light even an iota of the struggle PTSD brings to their lives, then all their work with me to ensure I got it right is worth it. I'm honored to have met these men, and thank them for their assistance, and in so many cases, for their service.
~ML

Review for Gunny (Rebel Wayfarers MC #5) by MariaLisa deMora

Gunny is the fifth book in the Rebel Wayfarers MC by MariaLisa deMora and can be read as a stand-alone, but because the series is fabulous you should read them all. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the way that deMora not only steps outside of the box, but made her own freaking box is astounding. This book, more than the others, really showcases how she keeps the MC world more realistic than any of the other books in the genre.

I thought that Jase was going to be my favorite, that I couldn’t love any of the Rebels more than him … but Gunny? Everything about Gunny screams ‘love me’.

“I want to keep you safe, keep you from harm. I want to give you everything you want… any desire…”

Sharon was on the run from her abusive ex-husband and she ended up at Slinky’s dancing at the Rebel’s strip club. When her ex came back with a vengeance the life she was trying to carve out for herself was lost to his fury. When Gunny saw the bruises on her face, something sparked inside him and his every cell throbbed with the need to protect her.

“My life … you are my life, Sharon. My obsession, my love. If anything happened to you, I don’t know what I would do.”

God, Gunny, I can’t even form words to express my thoughts and feelings about this character. Suffering the effects of PTSD from a mission gone wrong while deployed in the sandbox, he is a beast of a man keeping everyone at a distance. Except her. The intensity of his feelings for her scream at you from the pages of the book. In Jase you get a feel for what’s happening between them, but reading it from Sharon and Gunny’s POVs? Intense doesn’t really do it justice.

I got a sneak peek into what was coming in the last book, Jase. I experienced a very brief taste of Gunny & Sharon's chemistry and I knew it was gonna be good, and it was! I mentally tagged Gunny as a 'gentle giant' after seeing how he cared for Sharon when she was hurt. But there is sooooo much more to him that the readers needed to know. I'm so glad the author decided to listen to the voices in her head demanding that Gunny get his own book. There are so many characters in this series that I love, it just keeps getting better and better. And I know she is saving my favorite for last, building my anticipation, stringing me out like the dealer that she is. Mason, he's the one that revs my engine, and I can't wait to get inside his head and his heart when he's finally with HER...sigh. I already know he's a dirty-talker and once he no longer has to reign in his passion, it's gonna explode and be H-O-T! Gunny is a man of very few words, keeping to himself and only having a few close friends, among his Rebel brothers. After I experienced his journey getting to the Rebels, and oh what a painful trip that was, I agree that "Family wasn't always restricted to relatives." He's scary big and tends to wear his frowny face so most tend to keep their distance from him. Surprisingly, in spite of her history of abuse, Sharon is not threatened by him. Rather, she is drawn to him, feeling safe in his presence. He says that she, "latched on like I was the last knot in her rope." And can I just say, in my head, when I hear Gunny say, "Babe", it's time for a panty change...just saying. Another thing that I love about this series is the overlapping timelines. The author takes us back in time to introduce us to the character that the story is focusing on and we get to know them before they become a member of the club.Read more ›

Swear I wrote a review for this already.

Ok so if you are unfamiliar with MariaLisa DeMora, stop reading this and go to her Amazon author page and start one clicking. But start with MICA...... from there she will lead you on, tease you, cause you to wonder, and search for answers. Even though this is an MC series DeMora gives us so much more with each book, and I really wanted Gunny's book, BAD.

Gunny seems so broken and lost, and although we don't get as much of a background story on him as we did with Slate and Bear and even Mica there is still enough there to tell you that Gunny is falling apart and just doesn't know how to fix it. Until Sharon, and she is so strong much like her alpha biker she finds herself with. They both need each other so badly top help find a way to move past everything that has happened to them. Separately, they are strong, but together they can beat any obstacle life tosses their way.

If I write more I will tell you the entire story and ruin it, so I'm done here. I wish I could just write " just read this now!" and be done but it seems a bit rude.
