Phoenix Ward isn’t about to let anyone take Freedom Run away from her.
He’ll protect what’s his.
She’ll protect what’s hers.
Jaeger is an arrogant ass, but he wants nothing more than Phoenix.
Phoenix is stubborn and headstrong, and she wants Jaeger out of her life.

Sometimes it’s best to let things go.
But sometimes it’s better to fight until the very end.

There's something about the written word that is pure magic.
Possibly it's the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they're able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.

Until next time

{ excerpt } .

Sarge walks into the kitchen and looks between the coffee all over the fridge door, the smashed porcelain on the ground and me, chuckling.

“That went well,” he says and lets his own laughter rip from his lips. “Heard her shrieking like a banshee out in the yard.”

“She wants to go home.” I rub my hands over my eyes and try to relax, but knowing she’s pissed isn’t great for me.”

“Women are different,” Sarge says with a shrug.

“Tell me about it.”

“Sometimes it’s best to shut the fuck up and not fight ‘em.” Sarge sits in the chair that Nix was sitting in.

“You pussy-whipped?” I ask as I feel my eyebrows draw together in question.

“Hmmm.” He reverts back to normal Sarge. “Women wanna be told what to do, but you need to make it look like it’s their idea.”

“That’s fucked. She should just do what I say and be happy with it.”

Sarge shakes his head. “She’s right, you’re a dick.”

If you are into gritty (no pun, I swear), raunchy MC romances, this one's for you. Now, that's not to say GRIT was so-dumb-it's-comical... there were many elements that I enjoyed! I just personally got annoyed with Jaeger's mouth.

I loved Nix. I loved her sassiness, her spunk, her fiestiness, and her innate ability to keep Jaeger in line. Her catch-phrase for Jaeger is most certainly "You're an idiot" and I have to agree -- he's not the most romantic-minded person there is, but when he tries, he does truly try. He just has a lot to learn when it comes to women, and luckily Nix has enough patience for him... and when she doesn't, she just puts him in his place.

In the prologue, we see a young Jaeger and watch as his life is irrevocably changed -- because of his family life and his desire to not do exactly as his father tells him to do, his life takes a huge 180, and he goes from living in a house (and having to pay a high rent...), to fighting on the street and eventually finding a family in a club.

While Jaeger's mouth annoyed me, his thoughts and reasons for doing things kept me drawn to him. I very much enjoyed Nix and Jaeger circling one another, only to fall desperately into each other.

This was a true opposites-attract story and it was enjoyable. Not my favorite MC book, but a good one, nonetheless.
