Out of Time is book two in a series. It is not a standalone novel. I highly recommend that you read my first novel, Nine Minutes, to be able to understand the background stories of the main characters. There are many twists and turns in both stories that can best be connected if read consecutively.

Although I do answer all of the outstanding questions from Nine Minutes, there is more to this story, and some readers may consider it a cliffhanger. If you do not like cliffhangers, you may want to wait until the third novel is released in 2016.

They thought with his execution it would all be over.

They were wrong.

The leader of one of South Florida’s most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they’ve been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top.

In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida’s Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason “Grizz” Talbot and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal.

Not even Grizz’s inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government’s most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he’d once abducted and later made his wife.

Once Grizz’s obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she’d first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair have spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they’d once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he’s finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the façade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can’t seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bonds that hold them together.

And with Grizz finally put to death, now Ginny has learned secrets so dark, so evil she’s not even sure she can go on.

Will these secrets tear their love to pieces? And how far will Grizz go to protect what he still considers his, even from beyond the grave?

**Prologue & Additional Teasers attached to email **




“Yes! There is something I want for my birthday. Something I really want! I’ve been thinking about our prom date last year.”

“You want another romantic night at Martin’s beach house?” He grinned, relieved. A night making love with Kit at the beach house. Ohhhhh yeahhhh.

“No. Not the beach house.” She was bouncing in her seat now. “I want you to take me out! Dancing. I want to go to a club and go dancing.”

His smile faded and he looked a little deflated. He wasn’t going to tell her his name. He wasn’t going to go to church with her. How could he tell her no to the third thing she’d asked for?

“Shit, baby. You have to know I’m not a dancer. I barely got by with the slow dancing in Martin’s gazebo.”

“I want to go dancing, Grizz. Please! The only time I ever get to dance is when I convince Axel to dance with me in number four. And you know that’s barely ever. He won’t do it if there are a lot of people at the motel. He doesn’t want to risk being seen.”

Grizz had to smile at this. He’d walked in more than once on Axel and Kit dancing to one of those groups that Kit loved. If you asked him, those guys’ voices sounded like someone had their balls in a vice. A high-pitched squeal is all he ever heard and he never stayed around long enough to listen to an entire song.

“Why do you dance to a song about a bald-headed woman?” He’d asked her once.

Axel and Kit had stopped and peered at him strangely. “What do you mean by bald headed woman?” Kit had asked as Grizz turned the stereo down.

“These guys, who sound like women, are singing about a bald-headed woman,” Grizz replied.

She’d started laughing. “The Bee Gees are saying ‘more than a woman,’ Grizz. Not bald-headed woman! The song is called More Than a Woman and I happen to love it.”

“Whatever it’s called, it still sucks. I’m outta here.”

Grizz appreciated that Axel danced with his wife. And yes, he knew Axel’s other secret, too. He honestly didn’t care. He didn’t care what any guy decided to do with his dick as long as it was never near his wife. But he also knew he had to keep Axel’s secret. As leader, he had final say as to who could be in the gang. Still, he knew not everyone would be tolerant of Axel’s lifestyle. It was just easier to let it stay a secret. And besides, he was certain nobody suspected a thing.

“I don’t dance, Kit.” Grizz said now, shaking his head.

“But I want to go dancing for my birthday.” She folded her arms and gave him an accusing look. “You asked!”

He shook his head slightly and looked at her. “Can’t I just buy you another car?”


 This is a book where you would love to just write Mind Blown ... The End and you know people who read it would completely get it. However, that would not do justice to the outstanding
author Beth Flynn.

Beth has absolutely surpassed any expectations I had for the second book in the Nine Minutes series. Out of Time will completely obliterate any preperceptions you may have had after reading Nine Minutes, and yes, she still leaves you wanting more !

Flynn starts out with a prologue that will literally bring you to your knees with emotion. It gives you a glimpse into Grizz' s past, and makes you realize he wasn't broken, he was fighting to survive for more than just himself, even though he was just a kid. He was up against not just a "bad man" but "pure evil" ,and yet he still survives.

However, as the book moves into the present time, you find yourself wondering how much misconception and lies now stand in the way of Ginny/Kits and Tommy' s future. How many lies can one person endure? There are misconceptions at every turn, and you have to stop and wonder how much of Leslie's interview and the article she's writing will bring the foundation of Tommy & Ginny' s marriage to its knees.

Beth Flynn is a master wordsmith, who weaves a story so intricate you are caught in her web from the very beginning and continue to get tangled up in all that is Out of Time. Even facts you thought you knew, will come out to be more moves on the Chess Board that only Grizz himself could master.

However, just when you are so deep in the thick of the story, Flynn still finds a way to make you laugh out loud ! It's a soul soothing laugh that will give you the courage to move forward in this powerful story.

Flynn will make you wonder if the sins of the father will affect the future generation that Grizz, Ginny, & Tommy created. After all, Grizz & Grunt didn't have the typical father son relationship or start.

Which also leads to Ginny feeling as though she "...missed everything that was important."

What I love most about Out of Time is that it confirms the depth of the love Grizz had for Ginny, and that the depth of his love will mean he will do anything he has to do to protect her. The emotions behind Grizz' s love will actually bring tears to yours eyes. In addition, it also reveals how long Tommy himself has cared for Ginny, and how the one thing that truly unites all three of them is a childhood that was far far from perfect. Whether neglect, or outright abuse, Grizz, Ginny, & Grunt had all suffered at one point.

But most of all, I love that we get to see Ginny' s anger, inner strength, her ability to adapt, survive, forgive , and love. All of which are so powerful and dominate that they jump off the page. There is so much more I want to say, but I don't want to taint anyone's first read of this outstanding book. You will fall in love with the support the secondary characters,such as Carter give Ginny,and you will find yourself loathing Ginnys mother, but most of all you will be enamoured with this story and the intricate stories you find within the story.

I'm literally in awe of Beth Flynn and the masterpiece she has created with Out of Time. A must read !!!!
