New Release & Review: Lethal by Cassandra Robbins...That's When I Fell for the Leader of the Pack
Lethal by Cassandra Robbins is a 5 Star Read! I straight up LOVED this book, and I CANNOT wait to read the whole series! Yes, I’m shouting in happiness and excitement!
It is also the first motorcycle romance I have ever read! I’m shocked it has taken me this long! I listened to the Snowfall: A Slashes Prequel novella by M. Never on the Read Me Romance Podcast, but I’d yet to read a whole novel! Which reminds me I need to read Snowfall! Always so many books to read and so little time!!
I am beyond thrilled I took the time to read Lethal. I was not entirely sure what to expect! I was thinking it would be all about bikes! WRONG!! It’s all about relationships, family, and our place in our society. Except for feeling the freedom of the ride and the apparent toe curling rumbles that come from the massive machine, now I’m very curious, that’s really it. I was so worried it would be mechanics for dummies. I should have known better! I really do sometimes suck at knowing what to expect! Lol Why would I question Book Nerd Services…these ladies have yet to steer me in the wrong direction!
Here is the Blurb that got me hooked:
Blade McCormick is not a nice guy.
He’s pure adrenaline and smells like smoke and leather—the kind of guy you look at and know he’s going to be a combination of nasty and irresistible.
The moment I allowed myself to touch his hot skin and kiss his full lips, I. Was. Done.
Like currency, I’ve become part of a transaction. Blade took me to pay off a debt. I try to tell myself, Eve, you should hate him. He’s a bad guy. But then again, I’m not a good girl. Blade’s the president of the Disciples, the notorious motorcycle club.
I should be frightened, yet somehow, he doesn’t scare me. If anything, I think I scare him.
It takes a lot of work to become the club’s Queen, but I’ll stop at nothing to have the King!
“Now wipe that schoolgirl crush off that pretty face. I’m a bad guy, Angel.”
This steamy story focuses on Blade (real name Jason) and Eve! This is an untraditional love story. It has enemies to lovers feel, but the truth is, except for one meeting two years ago, they don't know each other.
Blade/Jason is the King of the Disciples who made the freshly turned eighteen-year-old Eve his Queen to pay off her brother’s drug debt. He saw Eve two years ago and could never quite get her out of his mind. Blade thinks he has lost his mind when he claims a woman that he just met to be his and his alone. “Being His” means something in the MC world! No man can touch or even look in her direction without disrespecting the King. This instant explosive attraction is what begins this story.
The Disciples are one of the wealthiest groups with their drug and gun running. Blade though part-creator of their money making drug has his own feelings on his life and business dealings. There is a difference between how he feels vs. how he should feel.
Before I start to wrap up Jason and Eve, I want to mention that you will fall in love with the side characters, who I am going to GUESS will be getting their own books??
If not, Cassandra, please at least give me a Dolly book!! I love her!! Doug is an essential piece in the evolution of Eve. He understands her and what she has been through. Blade's officers are so important to him and the story as well! The fact these men served with each other only adds an extra sexy layer. They aren't just criminal thugs, they are men with honor, bravery, and loyalty.
I always struggle with what to tell in a Review. I am always afraid of spoiling for others! I suppose I will just stick with the quotes the author shares. The suspense and drama unfold beautifully as does Jason and Eve's relationship.
Both of them are damaged and broken people. They have inner-demons that they are constantly battling. They deal with their own self-image and the one they are supposed to project.
This book is so steamy and sexy! Jason discovers truths about the goddess, siren that is Eve that only make him crazier about her! Eve needs security and to be protected. Two things she has never had from a man in her life. She thinks the only way to achieve that is to use Blade and make him fall in love with her while she stays immune to him. lol You will have to read to see how that plan works out!
Besides smoking hot sex scenes, there is action, violence, dirty-talking alphas, loss of innocence (the fun kind), sassy women, a red-head you will want to strangle, and understanding you make your own life and happiness!
