My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is an adrenaline rush through some of the more horrific parts of life – the darkness which unfortunately exists to fuel sick and twisted desires.
Misha was kidnapped and forced into a life of horror when he was only 17 and has been in a living Hell for five years.
Grim is the Coffin Nails assassin, a Nomad who carries out the jobs the various chapters of the motorcycle club want doing when there’s trash needs cleaning out. He’s hard and powerful, dangerous, gay. And he hates homophobes.
Grim also has an unusual fetish, he’s an amputee devotee, he finds people with missing limbs fascinating and when he inadvertently rescues Misha during a Louisiana chapter raid on traffickers, he finds his own little broken bird.
This book is as brutal as all the others in the series but, bizarrely, it also has some of the most tender and loving moments. I’ve been waiting for Grim’s story since he was first introduced and it didn’t disappoint.
I loved this book, I loved how Misha slowly learnt to trust in Grim, that he loved him and not just his broken limbs, and how Grim realised that it was more than just his stumps that made Misha perfect for him.
But it’s not for everyone. It has some truly horrific moments, the subject matter it deals with is beyond revolting to even think about and the knowledge this world is real makes my stomach turn.
These are not hearts and flowers romances but they are love stories and these two authors are masters of their craft.
