I cannot help but to weep for Grizz. I know I know, he’s a monster, criminal, etc etc but you know what? I don’t care!! I wanted him to live forever and have his HEA dang it! But I won’t spoil anything for you, who like me, waited an eternity to read this series....
Anyways, let me tell you that I was very surprised with the writing style in this book. It’s narrated in a first person format, but not like other books. I’m sure there’s a word for this style but I don’t know it so I’ll explain it... it’s like the narrator is telling us a story literally, in this book. Ginny describes every act as a memory. Like if my grandma were telling me a bedtime story. It’s still first person, but with inflections in the past, present and future. Don’t know if I’m making any sense, but my point is that it was different for me. But a good different. I loved it! I was enthralled in Ginny’s life and experiences. I couldn’t stop reading.
I actually liked that the sex wasn’t overtly described. It was mentioned but the author didn’t dwell on it. So that’s a reprieve. There is violence and horrible events described but it didn’t feel disturbing. Maybe it was the writing style, or I’m simply very twisted-minded and these things don’t really bother me...I don’t know. But the true story here was Grizz’s and Kit’s (ginny) love. I adored Grizz’s devotion to Kit. It was beautiful to see how bad he was with the rest of the world but for Kit he gave his own life.
I’m about to jump into the next book and I’m eager to see how the author is gonna make me love those characters as much as I love Grizz.
From that moment on, her life is forever changed. She gets a new name, a new identity and a new life in the midst of the gang’s base on the edge of the Florida Everglades—a frightening, rough and violent world much like the swamps themselves, where everyone has an alias and loyalty is tantamount to survival.
And at the center of it all is the gang’s leader, Grizz: massive, ruggedly handsome, terrifying and somehow, when it comes to Ginny, tender. She becomes his obsession and the one true love of his life.
So begins a tale of emotional obsession and manipulation, of a young woman ripped from everything she knows and forced to lean on the one person who provides attention, affection and care: her captor. Precocious and intelligent, but still very much a teenager, Ginny struggles to adapt to her existence, initially fighting and then coming to terms with her captivity.
Will she be rescued? Will she escape? Will she get out alive—or get out at all? Part psychological thriller, part coming-of-age novel, filled with mystery, romance and unexpected turns, Nine Minutes takes readers into the world of one motorcycle gang and inside the heart of a young girl, whose abduction brought about its fall. 📚 I loved the character development in this story. The love story of Grizz and Ginny, though unorthodox, was indeed beautiful. I loved how the author developed it. I also loved how strong Ginny was, even at her young age. This is the first book in a three part series and I have just started the second part, Out of Time. This series is definitely a must read and free on Kindle Unlimited! Look out for my review on Instagram & Goodreads, as well! #bookblogger #booknerd #finallysomereadingtime #busyweekssuck #lovetoread #hawaiianbooknerd🤓🌺

I was surprised at how good this book was, I was immersed literally after reading a few pages, it makes you feel like you are right there with Kit (Ginny!) & it takes an amazing author to have the ability to do this & Beth does it so well.
I'd definitely recommend Beth Flynn ; she is simply an amazing writer, haven't read a book this good for a while- I love lee child, James Patterson, Val McDermid, Martina Cole etc & normally stick to what I know is going to be a great read with a great plot & Beth's writing really is up there with the best!
Would love to see Beth write longer stand alone thrillers, she is definitely talented enough to do so.
Going to check for book 2 now as just finished putting this down, don't want to spoil anything for anyone- I hate it when people write a review & tell you exactly what happens in the book lol! Will say this though- great unexpected twists at the end ! Enjoy fellow readers!
Kit and Grizz are fabulous characters. Everything is seen from Kit's perspective and her character arc throughout- going from a kidnapped child to a young woman in love with the head of an MC is wonderful. I loved Grunt and their friendship throughout as well, although it is on the periphery.
What made the story even more interesting for me is when the author decided to write it- during the 1970's. She describes roads then, compared to how they are now, finances, child abductions didn't have the national and state warning systems that they do now. It legitimised the story and made it all seem very plausible which was key.
I will finish by saying that it is very well written. From the start- you are sucked into this world of Kit's. I had a hard time putting down this book.
Every scene was weaved with such precision for it to then play a hand later on making it exceptionally clever. I can imagine this author having reams and reams of plot layout and character backgrounds galore scattered throughout her house, for its execution is flawless.
Oh, it was so thrilling to read a book that initially throws you for a complete loop just in the prologue...WTF? We know the outcome of Nine Minutes going in, but the hows and whys, and the events leading up to that pivotal is what makes this edgy, fascinating and undeniably brilliant.
Is this a Stockholm Syndrome story? Well yes, I suppose it is, but whereas so many focus on the brutality turned affection, this is the complete opposite. Grizz, the MC President of an outlaw club is feared and for good reason, he is the front of a notorious club who have no concerns about feeding victims to alligators in the Florida swamps; drug trafficking, prostitution, carjacking, murder, rape, oh the list is endless but Guinivere Love Lemon is different in so many ways. A Polar opposite, the light to his darkness and Grizz has had his eye on the prize for quite a while. Where he is brutal with others, Ginny, aka Kit, is the only person he allows in, he would give her the world, even his life if that's what she wanted, the only thing he could never promise her was her freedom.
Falling in love with your captor at 15 is the last thing Ginny expected, and little does she know this is only the start of a story that spans across twenty-five years.
Turbulent, violent, beautiful and heartfelt are words that never go together, they shouldn't work, like oil mixed with water, they are repellent but my goodness, does it work here...in spades!
If you are looking for an MC read with a unique edge, then Nine Minutes is the book you've been waiting for. Incredible!
Ginny was an ordinary 15 year old girl who one day was kidnapped by a member of a Biker Gang.
She's kept against her will, and her family threatened should she try to escape.
Grizz the Gangs leader wants her for himself and no one ever says no to him.
As the story continues on and your left wondering will she ever escape, does she even want to.
What secrets are being kept, what's the story behind the notorious Grizz, what's his fasination with this Girl.
This book was thoroughly engrossing, I found myself wanting to find out more about their complex relationship.
By the time I'd finished reading this, I'd come to realise nothing is like it seems, People can love even in the strangest of circumstances.
Can't wait for book 2 fantastic read.
This is Grizz and Ginny's story. There were so many twist and turns in this book. However, the last few chapters where everything is coming out about Grizz and Ginny's life and the shockers at the end had my mouth hanging open. I have to say I much prefer Ginny with Grizz. I am not a Grunt fan especially when we discover how duplicitous he was. Will have to read book 2 now to see what happens next. I am well and truly hooked. This is definitely worth a read.
Nine minutes isn’t just a book, it’s a huge delivery of suspense and drama, love and sin, the magnitude of the story is unbelievable.
And this is just the beginning!
If I could give more than 5stars for this I would.
The writing flowed naturally and the story was fast moving but not enough that you couldn't keep up.
