As most of my book friends know, I love my fighters especially MMA ones. I have not read up a biker book before, even thought friends were telling me I should. So when I had a chance to review Gypsy Brothers series I thought well why not. Seven Sons (Gypsy Brothers #1) by Lili St. Germain was my first intro into the world of bikers, and I have to say what a good into it was.
I didn’t know what to expect when I started it even after reading the synopsis, but soon realized that this series was certainly going to be no fairytale romance. I was dark, raw and twisted, and about one girl’s need for revenge and I loved it.
Confusius said, "Before embarking upon a journey of revenge, dig two graves…. I planned to dig seven”
I devoured this book in a few hours; I was captivated by so many feelings, and emotions. It just didn’t t want to put it down I was horrified, disgusted and sad at what Juliette went thought at the hands of Dornan, who is a crazy psycho, and most of his sons.
”I was broken, destroyed…..What was born as fear and grief has long since blossomed into hatred and rage.”
Flashbacks allow you to learn a little about the past, her relationship with Elliot and Jason, Dornan youngest son, who is so not like his brothers. I loved Juliette POV as you get to know her, how she feels about what she has to do and why.
“Once I set my sights on vengeance, life made perfect sense”
Lili St. Germain had me on the edge of my seat wondering how the story was going to play out. How Juliette was going to inflict her revenge her first, and when she did, I wanted to high five her and said well-played.
Overall, I just loved Seven Sons. Even thought it was a novella if didn’t feel rushed at all. Lili’s amazing storytelling and writing hooked me from the start. I love the suspense, the revenge, and the darkness of the story, and I can’t wait to move on to Six Brother, which lucky for me is sitting on my Kindle.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I was told this series was not only about a MC, but it was dark erotica and sort of wrong. If you know mw, you know my answer was 'I want!.' Let's just say I was NOT expecting the level of darkness and dirtyness found in this novella. And I LOVED every minute of it.
The synopsis doesn't really prepare you for the level of darkness this book contained. Juliette wants revenge. Dornan and his sons took everything from her and now it is time for payback. I actually loved Juliette, At first I was a little weirded out about her actions (ok. maybe I am still weirded out about what she did, does, and will do!), but as her story unfolded I realized how brave and strong she was to go back to the place where she lost it all.
There were a lot of side characters and at first it was hard to figure out who was who in my head. My favorites were Elliot and Jase. Dornan was a whole tub of crazy! This guy is just out of his mind. His other six sons are almost as bad as he is, so I am lookig forward seeing Juliette fulfill her dreams of revenge.
Overall, I loved this first novella. It was dark, twisted, and dirty. Even though it was a short one, it didn't feel like it since it was packed with so much and I devoured it as fast as I could.
Lili writes dark erotica and NA. Her debut serial novel, Seven Sons, was released in early 2014, with the remaining books in the series to release in quick succession. Lili quit corporate life to focus on writing and so far is loving every minute of it. Her other loves in life include her gorgeous husband, good coffee, hanging at the beach and running. She loves to read almost as much as she loves to write.
