4 Super Hawt Dirty Talkin’ Stars to this one!
Jaeger Dalton wants the land that was promised to him. Phoenix Ward isn’t about to let anyone take Freedom Run away from her.
He’ll protect what’s his.
She’ll protect what’s hers.
Jaeger is an arrogant ass, but he wants nothing more than Phoenix. Phoenix is stubborn and headstrong, and she wants Jaeger out of her life. Her father lost the family farm to gambling debts, but Jaeger isn’t the only one who has a claim to the property. Sometimes it’s best to let things go.
But sometimes it’s better to fight until the very end.
I read and reviewed Monster Chef and then saw that the same author had another book on Net Galley…Grit. One-click request and the boom! Jaeger the dirty talking, sex-on-a-stick, bloody knuckled MC president was all mine.
Jaeger had a shite life…need say more. Phoenix had a hard but decent life. Her father and uncle were both useless and worthless gamblers, but she had the farm and loved the land. Then the whole thing came to a head resulting in being claimed by more than one bad, bad, bad man. Choosing the lesser of all three evils, and you can say in a way that she choose Jaeger, Nix struggles to make sense of her new reality. I liked that she didn’t immediately swoon, nor did she turn into a raving beeyach. She was appreciative to all the guys who risked their lives for her.
The characters were all deep and real (as real I know MCs anyhow…) but it was the dialogue that had me. J has absolutely NO filter. He says what he is thinking…all. The. Time. Needless to say, what he is thinking when with Nix is not always romantic or even polite (but certainly HAWT)! Nix, she couldn’t get past his “soft side” flipping to his crude side within a nanosecond. One thought she is thinking that he isn’t so bad and then next he says or does something so OTT that she’s rethinking. Hilarious and entertaining. I highly recommend this one…so why the 4 not 5 stars…Hmmm…not to be too spoilery but I do not want to read about the abuse/brutality of women and while I know that it was to depict a particularly devoid character, I just skimmed those parts as I found them too much for me. Enjoy!
