I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
For people new to this series, I can tell you that this story (and series) takes place in a world where solar flares not only have changed the earth but also society like we know it. Many people have died and there is no government or police anymore. The ‘new’ world is now divided in Wards and the MC club Glory rules Ward Four and it’s here where the story takes place.
‘Origin’ is the second book in the ‘Glory MC’ series. After reading and enjoying ‘Glory’ (the first book of this series), I was looking forward to reading the next one. ‘Origin’ continues telling the story of the bad boys of the Glory MC club. The main characters in this book are Lucky and Seven, two people we already met in the first book.
Bad boy Lucky is a member of the Glory MC club. He and feisty Seven can’t really stand each other but when their best friends start dating, they can’t really avoid each other very much. So each meeting is a competition where the person with the most sarcastic comments wins. Now, it has come to the point that they do it without thinking about it. And then one night, something happens that neither of them thought possible. They share a drunken kiss together. They both don’t know what to think about that but they really don’t get the chance to talk about it because Lucky leaves both Seven and Glory MC for a while. He doesn’t want to but sometimes you don’t have a choice. When Lucky finally comes back, two months have passed. He promised Knuckle, the president of Glory MC, that he would stay away for one week, so he knows that he’s in trouble with his brothers but he also has unfinished business with Seven.
Because he didn’t made contact with his brothers for two months, they feared that he was killed by their enemies the Phantoms. This means that his welcome back to the club is mixed with very different feelings and to make things worse , through certain circumstances he is now forced to live together with Seven for a while. The only good thing about it is that Seven hates the idea more than he does. And so they continues their little war between them. But the more they get to know each other, the more they begin to realize that maybe they didn’t know each other that well. Maybe their impression of each other was wrong and maybe the feelings they are feeling aren’t hate but something else?! But both, Seven and Lucky, had had a very difficult childhood, with secrets that could destroy this relationship before it even had time to blossom. And then you have their enemies who are waiting for just the right time to attack. To destroy them and Ward Four for good.
Can both survive all that? And are both willing to trust each other and their feelings?
Like I said in my review of ‘Glory’, the main focus of the story is on the couple and on the Glory MC club. It was really great seeing Hastie and Indy back, and the other guys of the Glory MC.
I would recommend that you read Glory first.
Readers who are very sensitive about certain themes, I must warn you that the writer Ana Jolene isn’t afraid to write about sensitive topics. In her first book the heroine had bipolar II disorder and in this book both Lucky and Seven had had a very difficult childhood. Lucky’s past gets revealed to us through past childhood memoires. This way you slowly discover his past, a way of writing I really appreciated when dealt with difficult situations.
One of the reasons that I was looking forward to this book was the fact that it was a story about ‘enemies’ becoming lovers and I’m always curious how the writer will let it happen. I really enjoyed the way that Ana Jolene did it. Although both, Lucky and Seven, act like they are really tough and sarcastic, both also have a soft side to them. Only their best friends see this side of them. It took a while before Lucky saw this side of Seven and vice versa. The writer really took her time to build the relationship between them but as a reader you were never bored! There were a lot of things going on this book. You never knew what was going to happen next and that’s something that I like as a reader. The story was told from both POV’s and there was no cheating.
The one thing that I, personal, had a little problem with was the situation with 'young' Lucky and that he left everything and someone special behind when he left home but that’s just my opinion.
I did enjoyed this MC story and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
Seven Douglass is best friends with Indie and has become friends with the members of the Glory MC through Indie's boyfriend, Hastie, who is a member. She has a weird love/hate relationship with Lucky where they hate each other most of the time yet Lucky will not allow any harm to come to her. But one night in a drunken state they kiss and then he is gone.
Dylan "Lucky" Winters is a member of the Glory MC and is very dedicated to the club. When a call comes in that he is needed he leaves the club to deal with his past.
Two months later Lucky returns and Seven has moved on but when Lucky needs a place to stay, Seven agrees he can stay with her. But life is not easy in Ward Four and soon the Glory MC realize their enemy is gaining power and will stop at nothing to get what they want. Will Lucky be able to protect Seven from their enemies, especially when they are closer than anyone knows.
Wow - this book is just as awesome as the first one and had me hooked from beginning to end. I love that the book is set in a post-apocalyptic world that is divided into Wards which makes it different and unique to many books out there.
I loved the independence of Seven and how she biked to work every day in spite of the obstacles and dangers out there. She has a good job and has an admirer in Trey who brings her chocolate!! She is torn between her hidden attraction and feelings to Lucky and the fact that Trey cares for her. The relationship between Seven and Lucky is awesome with the bantering and the things they each do to piss off the other one.
I felt so bad about Seven's past and her sister. Yet when we discover everything through the book you understand a few things better but at the same time it is devastating how everything turned out and it completely broke my heart.
Lucky has his own ghosts in his past and knows that he must help Lennon but at the same time he doesn't want to lose his place with Glory MC. Lucky has feelings for Seven that he tries to keep hidden but at the same time he would do anything to protect her and at any cost. I love when he and Seven finally sort things out!
There were definitely some things that I was not expecting in this book and I hope we get another glimpse of G in another book so we know he is doing ok and is safe.
There is so much conflict in this book and it'll be interesting to see how everything shapes up in the next book with alliances and enemies.
The ending absolutely killed me and totally shocked me!! I need to know what happens with the next book now!!
