Description; Warning: This is not a typical love story. This is an all-consuming, soul-crushing, tear-your-heart-into-pieces story. It’s intense, gritty and raw, dark and disturbing, and it doesn’t happen overnight. This is an epic love story that knows no boundaries and has no time limits. It grows and develops—with hurt, sacrifice, and heartache—over the span of a lifetime.
Eva Fox is the princess of the Silver Demons Motorcycle Club. Growing up with bikers in the club lifestyle is all that she knows. When she’s a young girl, Eva meets the reason for her existence. Deuce West is the sexy, biker bad-ass of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. Like Eva, he was born and raised in the club—but that’s where the similarities end. Their first meeting is innocent, but as Eva matures into a woman, their chance reunions evolve into a fit of lust and love. Fate continues to bring them together time and time again, but their twisted journey is filled with pain, betrayal, and bloodshed that could tear them apart. Eva sees in Deuce what he cannot see in himself—a man worthy of love—and Eva spends her lifetime proving to him that her undeniable love is the one thing he can’t live without.
This is Eva and Deuce’s story.
It wasn’t easy.
Nothing worth doing ever is.
And love is worth everything.
Goodreads Average Rating; 4.16*s
My Rating; More than 5*s
Would I recommend it? Yes, I would. But you must take my warning into account. And the descriptions warning too. It's a must read in my opinion, but only to those who can handle it.
Will I read anything else by this author? Yes, I really would like to see what her other books are like. I also really need the sequel ASAP.
My Review, or you know, just random gibberish gushing...again; Now...what am I supposed to say about a book like this. A book that I devoured. A book that made me cry a little more than most books make me cry. A book that I feel I have to write something about, whether it is taken as a review or not, at 7AM.
Honestly? I don't know what to say. I don't know how I feel about this book. I know that I really, really loved it and the characters... I also know that, at times, I totally hated said characters for some of the shit they did, but I just kept on loving them anyway. Some characters just made me constantly angry. Some characters, I felt I could wring their neck and cry for them at the same time.
This book. Well, it's gritty all right, and it is certainly raw. It's intense, it's dark, it is disturbing.

This is the warning we are given. This warning is everything this book is. This book is also so much more.
Eva and Deuce... They have so much chemistry. They have so much...I just don't know how to explain it.
They fight. They have sex. They run from each other. They infuriate me, and each other. But I just, they are just...I love them. Ain't no other way of putting really. I must say though, I do like couples when they guy is a couple of years older (Or, you know, 18 years). I like older guys in books. But that ain't the only reason I love Eva and Deuce.
Oh, I don't know how to feel. I just want to curl up in a ball, hug my kindle to my chest as if it were a physical book, and...cry.
There is a lot of swearing in this book (I don't mind, I'm used to hearing all that.) A lot of death. Violence (although not graphic). There is at least two rape scenes. This book is, if you've never really been in an MC, what you'd probably imagine it to be like...maybe. The guys are bad ass and there are a lot of dodgy dealings. There are all sorts of things in this book that I'd be totally shocked about if it was non-fiction. But it's not. And whilst that doesn't make any of the stuff happening any better...I guess it makes it easier to digest. At least for me it makes it all slightly easier. It still shocked me and some things made me feel a little freaked out. Or grossed out.
I would recommend this book. I feel that it is a must read and I cannot wait for the next book in the series, which has an expected publication of June 5th, but I do understand that this book will not be for everyone.
Give it a shot if you want, but if you feel you can't stomach all of that then I wouldn't read. But, you know, if you want to try it anyway, you go ahead.
Okay, so to sum up everything? I love the book. I love the characters. I have no idea how to feel and I'm just going to be going around in a state of not knowingness for a while...I think. I hope not. I hate having reader's block, but if any book might be able to do it? Well, it's a book that leaves your mind reeling. Like this one.
Some Quotes; I know I never, ever usually put in quotes from the books I read, even if I highlight them on my kindle, but I just...I feel I have to.
"Her, a fucking angel in a mess of demons, wanted him, one of the biggest fucking demons he knew."
Okay, so that's like the only quote I highlighted that isn't entirely spoilerish in anyway whatsoever. I wish I'd highlighted more, but I just had to keep reading. I wish I could share more, I just don't have anything on hand.
