Book 3 of Bad Boys of Retribution MC
Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance

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.

I'm convinced that Ms. Warren has created a whole new genre of books. Erotic implies tastefulness and class, something that she doesn't need when her uniquely gritty, raw and down and dirty books are oh so frickin' HOT HOT HOT!

Former Marine Captain Bo Maverick is mentally fucked. A nonstop repeat movie reel of his POW days and the deaths of almost his entire team haunt his days and nights. Head shrinker Dr. Veronica Hartley desperately wants to help him, but Bo's having a tough time keeping his wits when all he wants to do is bend her over her desk in her professional suit and make her scream his name. But ethics and all that, so the good doctor gives the patient to another shrink and says yes to the man. Over and over again. In the kitchen, the garage, the living room...umm hmmm! But just as Bo starts sharing his demons, V clams up about her own horrific past, which is REALLY bad news when there's some very bad men looking for her.

BO, the 3rd book in the Bad Boys of Retribution MC Series was so so good, definitely my favorite in the series so far! Bo was a tortured man with a nasty case of PTSD in exchange for his service to our country. Reluctant to accept help, he finally finds peace with a woman whose own tumultuous past could cause him some serious problems. Veronica was a seriously cool cucumber. Strong and rather silent, Bo doesn't have a whole lot of dialogue from Veronica; she's more a woman of action. That's a big departure from the other women in the Bad Boys of Retribution MC Series who are all larger than life personalities. V doesn't need to be a chatterbox to get her point across though, especially with her mad martial arts skills and the brain to back it up.

There was even an element of suspense that was kinda intense, at serious odds with the lighthearted sex-fest that was the rest of the book. BO was a seriously dirrrrrty read and I loved every raunchy minute of it! Witness:

Primal, feral, fearsome need rippled and roared through me, but my come wasn't going to be splattered down her throat. I wanted it planted deep inside her cunt.

Hmmmm, yes please! If you're not immune to some crazy dirty talk and a little violent MC action, then hell yea, you need to pick up BO, STAT. Actually, just do yourself a favor and go ahead and start at the beginning of this Řber sexy series, an offshoot of the also sinfully delicious Carolina Bad Boys Series (also wicked good). Ms. Warren's rough and ready reads, all from the horny-as-hell dude's POV, will have you fanning yourself, southern style.

Bottom Line: Stay tuned for the final Bad Boys of Retribution MC book, Coletrane. This hot as Hades summer series will have you sweating and swearing, trust me!
