💜ARC BOOK REVIEW💜
Release Date-18th April 2018
I’m Mac, the Intel guy of the Sin City Outlaws motorcycle club. When it comes to technology, there’s no reading between the lines or emotions to decipher. I prefer two interactions with people. I either fuck them or kill them. There’s no confusion between a woman gasping when I thrust into her, or someone gasping for their last breath of air while I squeeze their neck.
Then Simone Ray walks into my life with sad brown eyes, beautiful lips, and pregnant with a child that could possibly share the same bloodline of a fallen brother’s.
I’m the last person that should play daddy. I’m a biker and am no role model, but being with a woman who is anything but basic and far from a club chick, stirs a wind of chaos that I can’t escape.
I was ordered to protect her…
Falling in love with a woman and a child that’s not even mine was the last thing I saw happening.
ARC BOOK REVIEW.
So this I found was a tale of two halves the first third of this story being so-so for me.
I still ultimately enjoyed the start of this but there was nothing initially that made me exclaim wow. Then the second two-thirds gobsmacked me it was absolutely bloody amazing and I was unable to put Bloodlines down so hooked was I.
For me, this story came into its own when Simone meets Mac and these two misfits lives start to intertwine wrapping around each other in such a way that it’s hard to tell where one starts and the other begins.
Though complete opposites on paper when it comes to there initial upbringings, the one thing both Mac and Simone share is a complete disregard for the law and the rules that govern it.
They both exist on the fringes and according to there own agendas.
Mac the IT guy of a notorious Vegas MC gang and Simone the privileged Indian daughter of a renowned criminal family.
When Simone goes off script to prevent an arranged marriage to unite a rival family she has no idea just where her choices will ultimately lead her.
I have never read anything by this author before, so this was a completely new experience for me.
And as it turns out a good one at that, despite the initial slow start.
This slow beginning was ultimately the only reason I removed half a star.
Though I do understand the need for the backstory I just would have liked it to have gotten to the main course faster than it did.
Though part of an ongoing series this can still totally be read as a standalone.
I had no issue following along at all.
“Bloodlines” itself is told from both Mac and Simone’s POV, and I loved that this was a slow burn as the two got to know each other properly before connecting more deeply on a sexual level.
There was no OW or OM action here, once these two met they only had eyes for each other and I felt such a strong connection forming for me to both of our two main leads.
Mac was such sweetheart, a quirky, take no prisoners, what you see is what you get kind of fellow.
He’s also fully prepared to do whats necessary.
A real man.
He was so OTT protective towards what he perceived as his girls.
The perfect babysitter for Simone while the club tries to keep her safe and locate her dangerous EX.
Simone I also adored especially when she was out in the real world, her true colours and strength of character finally revealed and put to the ultimate test.
She came away with full top marks here.
“Bloodlines” was filled with a colourful and extreme extended cast and each one portrayed here was so fascinating to me.
I can’t wait to read a few more in this series to become better acquainted with this intriguing line-up.
So this pulled out all the stops and left me wanting more.
An incredibly emotive story that I can’t recommend enough.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “bloodlines” (Sin City Outlaws, #5) of which I have reviewed voluntary.
