Product Description

Product Description

I opened the boot, and at the sight of the girl, Crush began grinning. “Hey, is that for me, too?”
“You can go fuck yourself!” The little tart blew up instantly. “You evil bastard, let me go!”
“Whoo! I like her!”
Crush is a man who enjoys performing to the stereotypical outlaw biker image. This time I could see he meant it, and so did the girl. She opened her mouth, spotted Crush’s cut and went very quiet.
“You can’t have her. She’s my collateral.” I pulled her towards me, snapped through her ankle ties with the box cutter and threw her over my shoulder. She muttered furiously, but she’d stopped fighting. I could feel her raise her head and look over the crowd of gathering Disciples. She shivered and went limp. I guess she didn’t like the look of the party.
Crush was still curious. “Collateral for what?”
“Alistair’s man took my Busa.”
“You’re shitting me!”

Fracas Macintyre has been in and out of trouble all her life but this time it’s worse than ever. In debt to a loan shark, she’s caught up in a war between the Alistairs, nicknamed The Irish Mob, and Belial’s Disciples, England’s nastiest MC. Kidnapped and at the mercy of Caden Winslow, Fracas is convinced that life is going to get very nasty indeed.

Caden Winslow is an ex soldier used to taking care of business. When an Alistair henchman steals his beloved Busa, he simply takes one of theirs hostage and expects a simple trade will solve the problem. However, Caden is about to be pulled into a war.

Warning: This book contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex. It is for adults only.

HASH(0xa45f64bc) out of 5 stars 5 Action Packed Stars Jan. 31 2016
By Pamela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
So this was like an MC book/ ex-military kind of book which I loved. Our two main characters are Fracas and Caden. Fracas is a young woman who is a whore but really life has just f*cked her over and she's only done it because of circumstances that have made her make the choices she has. She's been around the wrong people who have taken advantage of her and now she has the stimga of being a whore. My heart broke for her, men in her village only want one thing from her and women gossip about her. Even though she goes through this crap daily she's still sassy and keeps her head held high. Caden is ex-military, he's bent on revenge for his family and after he's done with that he wants to settle down and have a life. He's seen horrible things that will haunt him, he's been part of the mafia. He's a hard man but has a heart of gold. I loved these two together, they really do bring the best parts of each other out. They have such a great chemistry.

I could compare this book to an action movie. It had everything that kept you wanting to see what would happen next. Action, suspense, drama, comedy, hot sex like I said everything. The secondary characters were just as great and I loved that by the end they were one big family. I loved AJ's writing style even though at times I didn't understand things it was still a great book. This book is written in both povs which I love being in a man's head. Caden doesn't disappoint and you get to hear how he truly feels for Fracas, all I have to say is SWOON!!!! I would love more books with Fracas and Caden, Rex, and the other mc members. They definitely have a place in my heart.

HASH(0xa45f9fb4) out of 5 stars Taking care of business in a most unusual way Jan. 16 2016
By SEB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the third book I have read by this author and although it was daring and different from the usual, I found myself getting a bit lost at times and confused. Some sections were more clear than others and the British terms always seemed to catch me off guard.
The best part of this book (and what kept me invested) is the relationship between Fracas and Caden...it was volatile, sexy and at times almost shocking in its gritty appeal but basically what held my attention when the rest of the plot seemed to be all over the place.
Mixing bikers with the Irish mob and an ex-military man was an interesting combination and I would say if you are looking for something different, this would be it...just be prepared to pay close attention to the action...it is complicated and at times had my head spinning. A pretty good mix of thriller and darkish romance.
I received a free copy of this book in exhcnage for an honest review.

HASH(0xa42b315c) out of 5 stars Another winner from AJ Adams... Jan. 7 2016
By Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This one from AJ Adams is a bit of a change - Peerage meets MC. Strange match-ups, but ultimately it works. Fracas (pronounced Freka in the UK) has led a very uncharmed life and she meets Caden, who while privileged in many ways, is also uncharmed. Although they are seemingly mismatched, they both grow throughout the book and ultimately really are well matched.

I didn't like Fracas at first. But as she seemed to grow, she definitely grew on me. I liked Caden throughout. One of the reviews mentions being disjointed and that the references to being in the mob were confusing. AJ Adams is very true to the East London slang way of speaking and that can be confusing, especially when the book location is in the UK (vs other books AJ wrote which are not UK based). Mob seemed really to be slang for the military, and if you google some of the other references the book will read a whole lot better. I've read every one of them - the first 4 were related - this one wasn't, but its definitely a good one in my opinion.

AJ Adams is truly a talented writer. I was really happy to see another one so soon after Deliverance (different but really good). If you haven't been reading AJ, start with Degas Girl, then The Bonus and read them all in order....

On a side note, I have seen references to AJ being a she....I truly have no idea if AJ is a she or a he - the writing tends towards the masculine; regardless, the books are all very well researched (esp with regards to the world political and military aspects). Truly a pleasure to read every time.

HASH(0xa45f91ec) out of 5 stars Bookaholic Mama reviews for Words Turn Me On Feb. 4 2016
By Bookaholic Mama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Caden is the illegitimate son of an English Baron. Although raised by his father and his father’s wife, he was not given a title the way his younger brother was. He’s ok with that, he’s the one with the money anyway and he and his brother are very close. Caden had been in the British Army until recently. In a short period of time he lost the mother who raised him, his father, his best friend and this biological mother. By the time he left the army he was ready for something new.

“(he)might have had a nice face, but the rest of him screamed hell-raiser”

“..he had a massive scar just where his heart would have been if he’d had one.”

Fracas has had a rough life, but that life has made her strong. I won’t tell you what has happened to her, but it is terrible. Through a series of unfortunate events, Fracas is mistaken for a working girl by Caden and taken by him as a means to an end. The story gets very interesting from that point.

“I’ve licked you; now you’re mine.”

I enjoyed reading this story. It is most certainly NOT your average MC book. I’ve never read of an MC being run like the Belial’s Disciples, but I liked it, something fresh for this sub-genre. The story has its hot moments but sex is not a main focus. Many times the author simply implies that sex has taken place, but other times it’s a steamy read. I found this nice as well, again, something different. Being an American I had a hard time keeping up with the British slang and references. I think it would be beneficial to have a glossary in the beginning of the book as I spent A LOT of time on google. This is the second book by AJ Adams that I have read, and I enjoy her work. I give this book 4.5 stars and recommend as a good read.

“We’re one of the richest nations on this earth, nobody in our country should be that poor.”

HASH(0xa45f6f3c) out of 5 stars What started out as deep story line quickly bled into this confusing mess and turned me off. March 18 2016
By TaraWordWench - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm gonna start this review with this is the longest dang book I think I've ever read, and it's a bit misleading. This book is NOT a dark romance. I'm a lover of all things dark and taboo and this does not feed the need or even come close. It starts out with that feeling and got me all excited, and then all of a sudden the story is all over the place, talking about past experiences that have nothing to do with the story at all and thrown in at the strangest times during the book. If it was important to tell Caden's past experiences in war to build his character, it could've been executed better and not in such a confusing, wordy way. And the time line really threw me for a loop and made me find the characters flakey because when you think weeks have passed and they are building this relationship, it finally states it's been three days. THREE DAYS! I just found it hard to believe all of that happened in such a short period of time. Weeks yes, days no.

I really liked all the characters in the beginning. They started out with a punch and you really felt like you knew them and what they had gone through and the kind of lifestyle they were living. Then the characters kind of just fell apart in the middle of this story that was being drug along by unneeded scenes and information. Every time I started liking them again, I'd sigh and flip more pages disliking them again until something happened to make me like them again.

I was hoping for this ragtag, meanass biker group. They aren't. They remind me of the Weenie-hut version of Sons of Anarchy. Caden, who starts off as this dark and disturbed individual who I totally loved, quickly became a softy of mass proportions. His character was such a let down. Fracas was about the only character who I liked. Out of all the characters, hers stayed true all the way until the end, and I liked her a lot. She was the toughest out of the entire group, and that says a lot being surrounded by MC and ex military (or mob or whatever the heck he was).

What started out as deep story line quickly bled into this confusing mess and turned me off. I finished it because I was curious to see if it would get back to how it originally started and I'm OCD about finishing books. After this long drawn out story, the story came to an almost uneventful ending with an epilogue that should've just been the last chapter.
