Series: Bad Boys of Retribution MC
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 14, 2015
From the world of Carolina Bad Boys . . . Bo Maverick is ex-Force Recon and a force to be reckoned with.
I’m a lover, not a fighter. Yeah, right. Talk about bullshit. I’ve been fighting all my life, and I know zip about love. Frankly, I don’t want to. More than bullets whizzing past my head or the very real possibility of ending up dead, love scares the shit out of me. I’m used to guns and killing, blood and dust.
That’s what I feel for this woman, my goddamn shrink, Veronica. Doctor Hartley digs inside my head. She asks me questions, which I never answer. I’d much rather take the smart, sexy Doc to bed, but I can’t because of our clinical relationship.
My last Force Recon mission destroyed any semblance of humanity I had left. Those little triggers go off all the time now. When I’m asleep. When I’m awake. When the memories are raw. I bolt up, at knife point again, but there’s no enemy now.
Just Veronica and me.
Veronica. Doctor Hartley. I told Bo to call me Ronnie like everyone else, but he refuses. He shows up like he has a cattle prod shoved up his ass and sits through the allotted hour for his counseling session impervious to every approach. He’s powerful, forceful, explosive. He doesn’t scare me.
My marine doesn’t speak, but his sharp gaze pierces me all the same. He watches me with all the greed of a hunger never sated, a need never fulfilled. A desire never explored. He stows his secrets safely away, but I’m patient. I’ll get to him if he doesn’t get to me first.
And when I have him? I’ll want him forever. I know this. But I can’t. His past might be complicated, but mine is a minefield, one that will blow up in our faces before all is said and done.
Too bad. We could be so good together.
Warning: Graphic sex, graphic action, graphic language. Triple X caution.
OMG! I think I have just picked my fave alpha male of this series. Wowza I love Bo!Bo is our newest hero in the series, he is suffering from severe PTSD following his time in the military. He believes no one can help him, not even the little hot Doc his friend Hunter has set him up with for therapy. So, Bo decides to push her hard and make her not want to be his Doc.
But what happens when you get what you thought you wanted only to find out you have made a huge mistake?Veronica aka Ronnie is a hard core therapist that takes no grieve from her patients and never gives up on them, even the ones she knows better to tangle with, the ones like Bo.
He always cancels his appointments, he is crude when speaking with her, while she pushes his antics to the back of her mind the day comes he says something that makes her decide to stop being his therapist. Not for the reason I bet you're thinking.
When these two finally get their relationship going you can instantly see why they make a great couple. She will do everything in her power to make him feel like a whole man again, he has finally found the one thing he never thought he would have again, and it's all due to Ronnie.
The story itself was fantastic. We did get some insight into what poor Bo went through and the little that was wrote about his experience made me think that this kind of stuff truly happens to our military men and women, making me cry and better appreciate the strength men possess to survive the things they do. The love and strength Ronnie shows him is off the charts wonderful.
I really liked the story and the relationship between these characters and I really love when we get to read about the other people from previous books, it makes it seem like you are attending a family reunion.
Now I have one minor issue with the story, although the sex is hot and wasn't a repetitive rendition of words time after time, I would like to see more of a build up of the relationship between the couples. I believe in love at first sight, truly I do, but sometimes I think the anticipation of that first encounter makes a book even better.
Bo is a well written book with well liked characters, I would highly recommend.
*** Review by Tammy ***
Rie is the badass, sassafras author of Sugar Daddy and the Don’t Tell series–a breakthrough trilogy that crosses traditional publishing boundaries beginning with In His Command. Her latest endeavors include the Carolina Bad Boys, a fun, hot, and southern-sexy series.
A Yankee transplant who has traveled the world, Rie started out a writer—causing her college professor to blush over her erotic poetry without one ounce of shame. Not much has changed. She swapped pen for paintbrushes and followed her other love during her twenties. From art school to marriage to children and many a wild and wonderful journey in between, Rie has come home to her calling. Her work has been called edgy, daring, and some of the sexiest smut around.
