I have to give big props to this author on this book and it's plot. I think like most people what grabbed my attention the most was the prologue. It kept and held my attention and it made me wonder where this story could go.
Now I have to say I have mixed feelings about Ginny. I mean here is a young woman who climbs on the back of a stranger’s bike and is abducted. Now after arriving at this run down motel and realizing after a while that she has been abducted. She doesn't act like someone who has been kidnapped. She also really shows no emotions at all.
I would usually talk about the male lead here. But that is kind of hard for me to do. Because we really don't get to know Grizz. I mean sure we kind of get to know him through Ginny's eye's. We only really know that he's older, much older than Ginny. Also that he's supposed to be this kind of, not sure if I want to say "bad guy" in all this. But you never really see him do anything bad.
Now I want to say thinking over this book there were a couple of things that kind of bugged me about this book. First that it is only told in Ginny's POV, I mean I understand that she is retelling the story of what happened to her. But there really was no interactions between the characters. Except for a few here and there. It was more descriptive and how Ginny was feeling at the time. Also this was supposed to be or I thought this was supposed to be about Ginny and Grizz's relationship. But honestly where was the relationship between the two, it seemed as though they were barely together except at night when they were in the same room and bed. Also when I read a book I want to feel some kind of connection with the characters but I really felt none.
Also there was a Huge twist at the end that I wasn't expecting. Ok maybe I saw it coming. But not really sure if it was necessary or that I necessarily liked it.
So like I said at the top after sitting on this review for a month. Instead of my raving 5 star review, I'm only able to give this book 3 stars. But I am very interested in reading the next book Out of Time just to see how it ends.
>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the first in the Nine Minutes Trilogy series and ends in a cliffhanger. Ginny is kidnapped at 15 by a dangerous motorcycle gang and given to the gang’s leader, Grizz. The book, surprisingly, starts with Ginny watching Grizz die on death row. She is married to an unnamed person and starts to tell the story in flashback. I was immediately sad. I knew I would end up liking Grizz, but I had to remember he was dead.
>The gang lives at a rundown motel and is extremely ruthless and violent. Grizz treats Ginny, renamed Kit, with the ultimate gentleness and respect. He is unsure how to love someone and does tend to make a lot of mistakes, such as allowing Grunt to take Kit’s virginity so Grizz wouldn’t be the one to hurt her. Sometimes Grizz’s thinking is very twisted, but then I remember he lived in a very twisted place and probably had a twisted childhood as well.
>This story has layers upon layers to it. The last sentence of the book is a shocker and I couldn’t get book two fast enough to get some answers. Grizz is a unique character. He is kind, yet so ruthless he almost seems to not have any feelings. Kit is a genuinely sweet person, but is not a victim. She is a survivor and standing up for what she thinks is right.
> This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving the story 5 stars. I am having a hard time letting go of the story. These characters and the fact that Grizz was put to death are hard to let go of.
This very unconventional love story of Kit (aka Ginny) and Grizz caught me completely off guard. She comes to be with him by being kidnapped one day in front of a Florida convenience store. Being a naive 15 year old, she takes off on a motorcycle with a complete stranger and is quickly made part of a motorcycle gang by the name of Satan's Army. When she is made Grizz's responsibility and then ultimately his wife, who the MC's leader, she finds that her life becomes more loving and more comfortable than anything she had experienced in her prior life. And all of that comes as a complete surprise to Kit who falls madly in love with her husband but would never like his business lifestyle.
Wow. Just wow. This book is so much more than just your typical biker story. You become completely immersed in each and every characters worlds. The group has so many fascinating facets and at times it's like you are reading more than book! Getting to know about this dark, violent world had me gasping more times than I can count, laughing from surprise at the simplicity of Grizz and Kit's life at times just doing the married thing, and having my heart broken at the rawness of watching the magnitude of this life and it's lasting effects on the MC's members.
The author did her homework and you are flawlessly transported back to Florida circa 1970's and how there was still so much undeveloped land. Certainly the use of this info helped make this book easier to understand. The law and the world was a much different place. No internet, cell phones, cable tv. A girl being kidnapped was news but it was quickly forgotten since leads were few and far between.
The emotions we get to witness through Kit's eyes was nothing short of incredible. Watching her develop from the naive little girl into the woman who sometimes felt as if she had lost her way. Her devotion to her husband Grizz, though, was pure and truly beautiful. He sincerely loved her and she felt such gratitude and affection for the big guy. Their scenes were completely heartfelt.
The conclusion to this book and the many secrets finally revealed still have me reeling. But when you read a book this well written, you can't help but smile after reading that last line. Yeah, this one blew my mind but what a great feeling that is.
A sequel is in the works and I'm very happy to get more out of this very complicated crew.
A huge 5 stars for one heck of a debut. Highly recommended!!
