Jenny has done her best, but the demands of her life have taken a big chunk of her ability to trust anyone associated with the Brazen Bulls. That puts Maverick in a precariously fragile position as he realises the welcome he anticipated from Jenny is not happening.
Life has a way of pushing people in directions they never intended, especially when it involves a young child. As with so many children who spend a lot of time surrounded by adults, Kelsey is a 4 going on 30 year old! She bridged many an awkward moment between her parents with her subtle poignant comments and questions.
There’s some beautiful moments shared between characters, wonderful words of wisdom as well as the expected dramas associated with an MC involved with crime. When the scenarios got graphic, thankfully they didn’t last long and the story returned to a relative level of peace. My only struggle was the story is told in past and present intervals. I always want to stay in the moment, but the flashbacks provided sufficient reasoning to justify Jenny’s hesitation and Maverick’s determination.
While there was a lot of challenging issues raised in the story, Maverick’s level headed actions continually focused on making the most of each day. ‘Putting his head down and shoulder to the day’ was his catch cry and it helped him many a time when the odds were stacked against him.
He was far from perfect but he was willing to step up and be the family man he always dreamed of being. Winning Jenny over was never going to be easy with the history they shared but with his brothers and the MC family beside him, he faced every challenge with the determination of a man who loved his family.
I feel as though I'm constantly saying the same things when attempting to do a Fanetti book justice so with that in my mind I'm once again going to talk about a specific theme that stands out most to me in this book: redemption. Slam provides Maverick and Jenny's stories of reclaiming their lives in ways they each can be fulfilled. Dreams were stolen from these two, snatched away viciously leaving Maverick struggling and needing to find light again while Jenny is so consumed with bitterness in the dark she forgets what was always most important to her. Their path to atonement is paved with really tough and emotional moments. It also shines with sweet moments of small victories and a whole lot of growth. It's a "head down, shoulder to the day" type of second chance love story. Of letting go and moving on the best you can with what you've be given.
This particular story is quite unique in the arsenal of Fanetti love stories. What happens to them providing shocking background and a basis from which they attempt to rise from the ashes of the people they were to become stronger. Maverick and Jenny's story is intricately constructed by juxtaposing their past with their present. I loved going back in time and seeing them before the storm hits. I love the present and the maelstrom of conflicted feelings in both of them. How they handle those emotions feels intimate in such a way you understand the depth, urgency, bitterness, and even glory of their relationship. Maverick and Jenny are both fearful and beat down. They each want something they lost without any specific understanding of how to get it back. They're starting over in equal states of intense longing and vulnerability. Susan Fanetti's understanding and conveyance of these two humanizes them in refreshing ways for this Brazen Bulls series. There's a lot of hurt to overcome. We're starting all over again from scratch. As a final note, a particular shining light in the story is their child, Kelsey, who reminds them each of the power of the love and the importance of the redemption for which they both strive.
"This was pain and despair and loss and fear slicing through every part of her. And love. God, so much love. Oh God"
This one quote resonated with me throughout the whole story. I believe it's a greatly accurate quote for the entire series as a whole. It's a quote about life - REAL life: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful. You can't have light without dark, rainbows without rain. The Brazen Bulls ongoing story, Maverick and Jenny's personal story are all set to remind you of these basic life facts. Of family and forgiveness through good times and bad. The series reminds us of something bigger than all of us something to remind us we can make it through with a whole lot of someones to hold on to. It's why I love reading them so much. Their romantic in a very realistic portrayal of the twisted lives we all live.
Slam is the third book of the series told in the third person point of view. And while it's a stand alone with new main characters the ongoing arc of the MC continues from previous installments, each of which are excellent and highly recommended as well.
