All Antonio did was hurt her.
All he did was give her hell.
He took away everything good in her world.
Everything that ever mattered.
Jenny is used to putting on a brave facade, letting the outside world see her as wild and free. She is loyal and loves with her whole heart, loving others so much that she is willing to sacrifice herself in the process.
Jules was only supposed to be a diversion for Jenny. Fun times with no strings attached. She didn’t intend to fall for Jules, a member of The Devil’s Crusader’s Motorcycle Club. But fall for him is exactly what she did.
Antonio has been wreaking havoc on her life since Jenny was sixteen years old. Now she is forced to marry Antonio to keep her loved ones safe, destroying the man she loves in the process and driving him away.
Riding back into town after years away, Jules discovers the woman he once loved no longer exists, and it’s up to him to see if he can bring her back.
NOTE TO READER: This book contains strong sexual scenes and violence against women. Jenny curses so if you can’t stand the “f” bomb then avoid this one. This is book 3, however, each book in the series can be read as a stand alone.
I looked away from the paper and met Jules’ eyes. He was searching mine trying to read my thoughts. He looked worried like he was nervous about what I would think. Jules moved a piece of hair behind my ear and then said, “I know. It doesn’t do you justice.”
“Are you kidding me? I was thinking that I don’t live up to the woman in the picture. Is that how you see me, Jules?”
In a flash, he closed the sketchpad and tossed it on the chair. He moved on top of me, holding himself up like he was going to do a pushup, his hands on each side of my head, “If you could only see how I see you.”
I gulped at his words. There is so much more to Jules than meets the eye. With him on top of me, staring down at me, whispering words to me that made me feel vulnerable and beautiful, I felt guilty. This happiness wasn’t mine to have. I took advantage of the night, and now the sun was starting to rise. A ray of light peeked through a high glass block window telling me my time was up.
“Jules,” I began, then drew in a breath and continued, “Tonight has been amazing but…”
“Don’t you dare lay beneath me in my t-shirt and nothing else and try to give me some it’s not you, it’s me crap. You feel this right here.” He moved to his knees so that he was straddling my thighs then reached up between my legs and pressed his thumb right into my pussy, “That’s me inside of you. You feel all that wetness? That’s my cum and you coating my finger. You like me there, don’t you?” His thumb moved over my clit and two fingers filled me up. I gasped. This was not going how I envisioned. I needed to get away and tell him this was a one-time thing. “You need me here, don’t you?”
I received an ARC from the Author Abby McCarthy in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey’s very honest opinion for HURT. For being a first book that I have had the pleasure of reading written by Ms McCarthy. I found it to be so filled with emotion- drama- and a love story . Your heart is being pulled in one direction and then you are finding yourself hating the man that Maura goes to in order to save her loved ones.
The way in which Ms. McCarthy brings her pen to paper in telling this story is very unique. She is able to not only bring a bikers club but also a family that is being controlled by the mafia together. It is like reading another version of SOA but only tamer. I truly enjoyed it!! Matter of fact I loved it!! Ms. McCarthy has described the characters and events i such a way that you see them jumping out at you. You are able to picture each character and scene as they unfold and speak right before your eyes.
You have a young women who at a early age was claimed by a mean person. He stated that in no uncertain words that he would make her his. And if she told her brothers – then they would get hurt. If she got serious with another boy then they would also. He lived up to his word.
The onetime she told her brother – he was killed – every time she fell in love they were hurt or forced to leave her. She finally realized that in order to protect her family – the club and her friends she would marry him.
In doing so she -she made her life a living hell. This story has so many twist and turns. It is a true MUST READ!! I recommend this book to everyone. Mismousey gives it a firm rating of 60 out of 5 stars. NOW WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR RUN AND GET YOUR COPY TODAY!!!!
