Review & Release Blitz: Lili Saint Germain's "Gypsy Brothers Series & Alternate Novella."
Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/1OmZ68c
My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.
Including my innocence.
When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.
Before my father died, Dornan Ross and his sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer.
I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I'm out for revenge. But I didn't expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club. I didn't expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.
Now, I'm faced with an impossible choice - Jase, or avenging my fathers death?
Three stories you've never heard.... until now.
"Alternate" is a novella featuring pivotal scenes from the Gypsy Brothers series, as told by Dornan Ross, Jason Ross and Elliot McRae.
You thought you knew who to trust.
You were wrong.
"Gypsy Brothers" was the first serial novella series I read and to this day, it is up there with my all time favourites. The storyline was captivating, thrilling, it was harrowing and it was ugly and if you're looking for a conventional love story.. well you won't find it here. Nope, this was story about PAYBACK pure and simple. It's about the great lengths one woman would go to, to exact revenge on those who not only wronged her but also wronged those she held close. She was a woman on a mission and god help you if you got in her way. Nothing about this series was predictable and just as I thought I knew which way this story was going to go, the author switched things up and completely shock me by taking a different route. Dark, dirty, gritty, gruesome, harrowing and very occasionally heart felt are all words I would use to describe "Gypsy Brothers" and honestly, I couldn't wait to get my hands on each instalment, I was addicted, captivated, obsessed even and so when Lili announced we'd be getting an extra novella from the boys POV, I was beyond excited.
I couldn't wait to get into the heads of Elliott, Jase and Dornan. Each of them were very different characters and each had already elicited very different emotions from me.. from love all the way to hate. The question was, would this novella make me feel any different about them? Well the answer was yes!!! There was an element of sympathy I never expected to feel. I'm not sure whether part of that is because I've read "Cartel" I'm not sure but it surprised the hell out of me. I was also given an insight into what Jase went through during the first three years after Juliette's "death" and to say my heart broke is an understatement. He was left a shattered man and those scenes were soul destroying to read. And Elliott... beautiful Elliott who gave so much. He sacrificed it all to save the life of a girl. and he did it without question. Each time I read parts that he featured in, that noose around my heart grew that little bit tighter. His story was not an easy one to read and I really hope he gets his own book.
"Normal men don’t want to hurt the women they love.
Normal men don’t have this darkness inside them."
This "Alternate" novella was a fantastic addition to this Series. It was everything I had grown to know, expect and love from a Gypsy Brothers novella and so much more. It was hard hitting that's for sure and definitely packed quite the punch. If you loved the series, this instalment is not to be missed. Go click while it's available for a limited time.
I rated "Alternate" ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
There’s something to be said about a person who’s been put in hell and doesn’t lose themselves.
But what if you find yourself there instead?
“Say it,” Chad said, sliding one finger inside Rails so that she flinched. Even with the drugs, the rough way he was poking and prodding at her must have hurt. “Say you’re no better than us. Say you’re one of us and I’ll let her go.” I looked to Rails, but she wasn’t even there. Whatever drug was in her bloodstream, it looked effective.
“I’m no better than you.” I ground out.
“And?” Chad prompted, snaking his tongue out to lick Raelene’s earlobe.
“And I’m one of you.”
“One of what?”
“A fucking Gypsy Brother!” I screamed.
Normal men don’t want to hurt the women they love.
Normal men don’t have a darkness inside them.
But I’m not normal. I never was. I might’ve been patched in by force, but it doesn’t change the fact that I’ve got GYPSY BROTHERS forever etched into my skin, and their blood running through my veins.
I might look like a good person on the surface, but it doesn’t change the fact that I’m Dornan Ross’s son.
