ARC Review: Quinn, Part II by J.C. Cliff

Quinn, Part II (Undaunted Men, #2)Quinn, Part II by J.C. Cliff

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Quinn and Lexi's story continues in the suspense filled drama of love, sex and uncontrollable emotions.

This book picks up where we left off in part one. Lexi ends up back at her father's house broken and alone after giving up Quinn to save him. She knows he feels hurt and betrayed but she had no choice if she wanted to keep him alive. Little did she know her efforts would mean nothing in the end. Lexi's ex keeps her against her will and drugs her into having sex with him so he can video tape it and prove to Quinn that she doesn't want him anymore. Unfortunately this works Quinn can't deny what he sees and this leaves both of them devastated.

Time passes, Lexi and Quinn move on with their lives a part or try to. Lexi hiding from the world as each day brings a new revelation about the lies shes been told her whole life.
Quinn goes back to his womanizing ways with his love them and leave them attitude.

Just when you think there is no hope for this couple everything takes a turn. Quinn goes from hating the Lexi he thought betrayed him to wanting her more then he ever had before. Especially when she show up at his door with a surprise he never expected.

This series was my first from this author and I really enjoy this installment. It was tough to read at time because of the turmoil it put my emotions in. I wanted to slap Lexi at times for her decisions and punch Quinn in the face for being a big old dope. But for when a book makes me happy, sad and even mad it just means that the writer is good because she made me care.

I was curious about the series that this book was spun off from Blyss I plan on checking that one out.

Meltdown of Mad Dog (Satan's Savages MC #4)
by K.E. Osborn
Clicking my tongue against the roof of my mouth, I glance down at the knife as he digs the blade in slightly further. The sharp sting of the tip piercing my skin is followed by the warm trickle of blood slides down my neck through my beard. “Okay, I’ll behave. Just tell me why I’m here.”

“Straight to the point, just like you said. Okay. My offer. You choose to willingly stop with the lackeys distributing your E tablets, and I’ll leave your club alone. But, if you go behind our backs, and try to distribute without our knowledge again, we will come after you, without hesitation.”

Smirking, I shake my head. “Jesús, that’s not an offer, that’s horse shit. You’re telling me to give up good money, and to stop trading in something my club has been doing since its inception, thirty years ago. Why would I give it up for you?”

He sniffs, rubbing his chin and pulls the knife away from my neck, taking a step back. “Okay, you want me to play hardball? Then you give me no option. You stop your distribution. You pull your lackeys, you get out of drugs and guns completely. One hundred percent. I mean all the way. Change things up. Go into a business, make money legitimately. I really don’t give two flying fucks how you source your income, just not through drugs and guns in South Australia. You hand in your supply of everything you have in stock at the moment and, in return, I won’t go after your family.”

My chest tightens and a cold shiver runs down my spine, but I don’t want him to know I’m rattled so I play dumb. “My club is my family.”

“Oh, so if I went after a fiery little red-head called Willow, and sliced her open in front of Dylan, how exactly would that sit with you? And then after Dylan was a mess from watching me slice open his Old Lady, I would dice him up, too. Then to top it all off, I’d bring in Amelia and fuck her so hard she would bleed like a river. Then I’d torture her right in front of you, making you watch every second as you take in her pain-filled screams, knowing you were the reason she was going through that pain, all because you wouldn’t give up the drugs and guns for the sake of… business. It would be a shame.”

An insatiable wave of hatred and anger boils from within me. My fists ball at my sides, and my muscles clench all over my body. Hearing him talk about my family like that was excruciatingly painful, and imagine it in my head was even worse. My neck tenses as my jaw clenches, my eyes twitch as I stare at a smirking Jesús. The anger consumes me as everything blurs around me. I lunge forward screaming at the top of my lungs reaching out for him. My anger is an untamed beast, with the ferocity of a caged lion, ready to attack. But before I can reach him I’m pulled back, my arms held to my side as I groan, kick and scream to get to him.

I’m losing the plot.

No one talks about Millie that way, no one!

“I’m going to fucking kill you myself,” I yell. Jesús shakes his head with a sigh and raises his eyebrow.

“No, you won’t, because if anything happens to me, contingencies are in place. If I die, what I just said will happen to your family, slowly and painfully. If José dies, same thing. If we hear of you trading with your lackeys, well I’ll give you three guesses as to what happens, but my guess is you only need one.”

My bottom lip trembles as my heart races in my chest, and my breathing is so rushed and harsh spit is flying out of my mouth. “What did I do to you?”

Jesús frowns and tilts his head. “Oh, come now, you know this isn’t personal. I just happened to step into your territory, but I appear to be the bigger and better dog as it were. Sometimes a dog just has to know when to… roll over.”
