Having read the author's other books I can say that this is a fully fleshed work. There seems to be a large amount of self-published romantic novels that have a following and this fits into that genre. My review looks at this book from that angle- it wouldn't be fair to compare it to Hemingway, but evaluate its merit through the lens of a newly developing author with a platform of entering the Amazon-published romantic quick to read books.
For that, I give it a solid rating of GO READ IT and recommend you share your REVIEW. Not only does this support indie authors but it gives invaluable feedback to people developing their craft.
Ahem- to my thoughts: Torrie has a familiar voice- which is pleasing for a loyal reader- you feel like you get to know her through her work. Torrie focuses on damsels in distress (mothers mainly, which is a nice twist) and although her characters are cliche beautiful, they happen to have complex lives which gives them depth. The ladies are usually involved with an equally devastatingly handsome man but in this novel the main male character Sin is well described and behaves in a way that is believable. He's dark, he's gritty, but he has a black and white sense of loyalty and this shows- he's someone you could easily fall in love with. The heroine Savannah, varies from weak to strong and displays quite realistically the behaviors of woman who endures abuse. She's real, she's smart-mouthed, but she also is very feminine, looking for love and a sense of redemption and a place in the world. The characters are drawn to each other for their goodness despite their dark lives- it's a lovely chemistry. Both of them interact in a way that had me emotionally connected. I wanted them to work out. I wanted the bad guy to go away. The writing sucks you in. I disliked the villain and his behavior was quite dark and believable- if you've ever engaged with a bully, he'll strike a familiar chord. The overall theme of a motorcycle club and its behaviors as a group were interesting to dive into. I felt like I was peeking into a world the author understood- that makes for a rich storyline. Now it's a romance novel and there's some gruesome violence, but nothing you want to bleach your eyeballs about afterwards. The sexuality is present and graphic, so keep your kindle from the kiddies.
Here's my takeaway- are there spelling errors, syntax errors, and a few blips- yes, but remember this isn't a major publishing house and an author with 50+ books and a research team. This is one person writing her heart out and that quality is there. The small issues don't take away from reading the book. I read it in a 3 hour swoop without wanting to put it down. It's a good read- in its context, it's definitely an up and comer for this author. She just gets better and better and I know with time she's going to really be very, very good. It's exciting to see her growth.
My two cents if one is to be critical (and opinions are like belly buttons, everyone has one, no one wants someone else's)....I would want to see more descriptions of places and more flesh put into what is happening- a bit more sideline info. For example, the dialogue runs fast and hot but often the storyline is so quick, it can be hard to believe they're that engaged to warrant such a conversation. I'd like a bit more substance in what the characters do to give them more solidarity in their environment- could Sin and Savannah go on a ride, talk, have dinner- could Tyson (the villain) be shown ruthless at work- give us a scenario of him being the evil villain beyond his quest to control Savannah. Show me Savannah interacting with her parents- maybe some stories from girlhood- dark flashbacks of her mother- anything.....I find the writing tends to flow one direction- the main plot- but the sideline info gives it that complexity that readers long for to make it 'real'.....otherwise it's just a fast paced short story and I want a good, juicy, meaty novel. Torrie definitely has the chops to provide it and when it happens- the stars will collide because she IS that good!
Read it- pay the $3, support a hard working talented author- you won't regret a single second of SIN.
Matthew aka Sin is part of the MC which is now run by his brother Cut, after the brutal death of their father by a rival MC. Sin has been more or less on the outskirts of the MC, especially after the deaths of his father and sister. Wanting a life away from the MC he had four years in the military before he was medically discharged after a battle injury. Sin has a constant inner guilty dialogue for not being the saviour of his family or his comrades. When he finds a damsel in distress on the roadside in her high class car. He resolves to save her rather than turning a blind eye.
Waking up in a strange room and looking into the eyes of the man that saved her, Savannah is surprised by how safe she feels in this stranger’s room. Running from a life of abuse and violence at the hands of the man who was supposed to love and cherish her, she is more than glad she is finally safe. But her ex does not give up and hunts her down. This is the catalyst for Savannah searching for the strength to be free and for Sin to be her saviour.
Both the main characters are striving to find the answers to all that is wrong in their lives and how to survive the aftermath. The relationship between Sin and Savannah was therefore an extreme slow build and the romance was late in coming into the storyline. The MC world was told with a slightly different slant and there were some things I found a little strange. For instance the way that Sin simply took orders from his brother. I could understand that as the Pres of the MC that his word was final but somethings he said to Sin just wouldn’t be how a man, especially one who cherishes family would speak with his brother. This is turn made me look as Sin as a little wimpy at times and I’m all for an alpha man showing his softer side, but in this instance it put me off a bit. I also couldn’t understand the reason for Savannah’s (weird and freaky) ex and how he continued to pursue her as no reason was given. Don’t get me started on the ex’s mother, she was another weirdo!
Overall this was an enjoyable start to a new series and hopefully the darker side that took place in the ending of the book, gives the next books a little more grit and punch. Lick’s book is next up and his outlandish behaviour can only be hiding some deep hurt. I just hope the romance doesn’t take as long for him though!
