Melissa
They say there are defining points in your life – moments where you f**ked it all up, moments that make you its bitch, moments that shape you into the person you are.
The day I met Braxton Ward was one of my moments.
My name’s Melissa Hart, and I don’t think you’re ready for this story.
 

Hella
I go by a few names: Hella, Brax, 112, or, depending on whether I’ve been balls deep in you or not, C*nt. I don’t push the boundaries because in order to do so, one must have them. I’ve never had them. Being homeless at the not-so-tender age of fifteen morphed me into an emotionless shell, and when The Army recruited me, that shell turned into steel.
They say if fire is hot enough, it can melt steel; the hate that burns between Melissa Hart and me just might be hot enough. Shit doesn’t come easy for us. Enemies are expanded, secrets are revealed, and lives will be taken. Yeah, I’m Braxton “Hella” Ward, and you bet your f*cking ass that you ain’t ready for this story.

I LOVE Hella (“the one who should not be named”) and Melissa! Hella is the perfect combination of hot alpha and cocky asshole and Melissa has been through so much, OMG you don’t even know!!! So, I was really looking forward to this book, and mostly it is really good. Amo Jones is raw and gritty, I’m on the verge of being concerned about her with the violence and depravity in the book (but hey, let’s face it, I love that stuff!!) If there were one thing I could wish for this author though, it would be for her to pay closer attention to the details. As they say, God is in the details, (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_devil_is_in_the_detail) and the lack of uniformity had me cringing. If something happens when one character is 12, then the other character couldn’t have been 15 when their interaction happened. (I know that doesn’t make sense to you, but it will.) Or if you name the prospect of the first club Travis, why oh why would you name the prospect 10 years later of the second club Travis? There are so many names, why use the same one twice? I thought poor Travis had been prospecting for a decade until I realized it was a different club! Also, in the epilogue a time frame is referenced. The reader is given a glimpse at the beginning of book 3 and it already contradicts the end of book 2. I find it hard to believe the books have been beta read. I am a very detailed oriented reader and if the time line doesn’t follow through or there are contradictions, it DRIVES ME INSANE. There is so much potential for this author, she just really REALLY REALLY needs to pay more attention to the little things or have better beta’s. I give this book 3.5 stars and I am keeping my fingers crossed for book 3, I’m hooked and I hope she can keep me that way.

Author Bio

Amo is a full-time writer from New Zealand who loves long romantic walks to the wine cellar.

When she's not creating magic, you can usually find her relaxing in front of the television watching the latest episode of Supernatural or Vikings. (This will be updated as she finds new television shows with hot actors.)

She's the proud mother of four little critters who are the reason she breathes, but also the reason she drinks.

She's the wife-to-be to the love of her life. She says wife-to-be because she scares him a little, and he still hasn't decided whether he wants to wed her or not. Such an exciting relationship.

She loves meeting new people and believes the world needs more kindness.
