Looking for a walk on the wild side, Annabel Percy, the daughter of a powerful politician, gives in to an attraction to a sexy biker she meets one night. But she finds herself living a nightmare when she’s kidnapped and transported into a hell on earth she never could have imagined.
Born and bred into the Hells Raiders MC, Nathaniel “Reverend” Malloy lives and dies for his brothers. But when he becomes the unexpected savior of a rival club’s captive, Rev makes it his personal mission to nurse Annabel back to health—and to shelter her from the nightmares that torment her.
Once Annabel heals, she’s stunned to realize she is falling for the seductive man who saved her. Faced with their impossible attraction, can she accept the life he leads, or will Rev walk away from the only life he’s ever known for the woman he was never supposed to love?
I Loved, loved, loved Viscous Cycle so much, it was a perfect blend of Sons Of Anarchy (the best show EVER) and Dangerous Minds and I was super excited to see the lead in to Rev’s, the middle brother and ‘softer’ of the Malloy brothers.
Nathaniel ‘Reverend’ Malloy’s introduction to the reader was heartbreaking and traumatizing and you understood his temperament and reason behind a lot of things he did and said in VC. President of his MC, which to be honest I kept forgetting he was the Prez and thought it was Deacon. this story was more focused ‘outside’ the club, even though they were on the compound it was still more centered around Annabel and Rev’s growing relationship.
Annabel Percy was in the wrong place at the wrong time and trusted the wrong person and would up being a sex slave for two months only to be left for dead. The horror she endured left her broken, both physically and mentally and my heart broke for her so many times. the story pretty much told itself, broken down woman meets troubled biker with a secret, golden.
I loved the passion between Rev and Annabel and like in VS there was no insta love, it was all over time and that was great. Rev is less hard-headed than his brothers but when he looses control…..
While I loved the story, it did leave me wanting and I felt myself loosing interest until the end, which felt rushed.
Overall, still a great read and I cant wait for Bishops story, which I have a feeling will be the best one yet!
