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.
Bo is another great book from the Bad Boys of Retribution MC series. It's book three in the series but it can be read as a standalone. This series just gets better and better, the men get hotter and their women get stronger and feistier. This series introduced me to Rie Warren's work and I've become a big fan of her books. Her talent continues to blow me away, and I hope to read many more of her books in the future - especially if they are all as good as this series is.
Bo is a former Marine who is struggling to cope with civilian life and is suffering from PTSD after his last mission with the marines went badly wrong. His friend Hunter has introduced him to a specialist psychologist who he thinks can help him, but Bo refuses to keep his appointments - until Dr Veronica Hartley turns up at Retribution MC and practically drags him to her office. Bo still isn't interested in talking to her, but he sure is interested in getting her into bed. Veronica is persistent in trying to help Bo, but she's having problems keeping their doctor/patient relationship strictly professional. She's also hiding a big secret that could put her, Bo and the men of Retribution MC in danger.
Bo is a great hero, but I must admit that Veronica (or V as Bo calls her) completely stole the show for me. She is strong, sassy and won't take any crap from anyone. I just knew I was going to love her when she stormed into the MC at the end of book two. She is fabulous! Her secret was a big shock to me, I didn't guess it at all. I think she's amazing to have pulled herself through all of her problems and built a successful career. As with the previous books, this book is told entirety from the hero's POV and there were times that I would have liked to hear from Veronica. That's a very minor negative though, and the only one I can think of as I really enjoyed this book. It is a gripping read that gets five big stars.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
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.
