SUMMARY
They thought with his execution it would all be over.
They were wrong.

The leader of one of South Florida's most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they've been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top.

In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida's Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason "Grizz" Talbot, the terrifying leader of Satan's Army motorcycle gang, and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal.

Not even Grizz's inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government's most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he'd once abducted and later made his wife.

Once Grizz's obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she'd first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair have spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they'd once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he's finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the façade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can't seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bon

5 "Blow Your Mind Twisty Plot" Stars! Unbelievably fantastic! After reading Nine Minutes, book 1 in this series, just a couple of weeks ago, I knew I had to read book 2. What I never in a million years would have imagined is that perhaps this second book is even more twisty and unpredictable than the first! Outrule nothing, expect the unexpected and I will still guarantee that you will not be able to predict all the incredible plot twists in this amazing MC Romance. But please note, you must read Nine Minutes before OUT OF TIME.

As you can imagine with a romantic suspense title like this, I encourage you to avoid reading any detailed descriptions about the background. The wild emotional roller coaster feelings that this book conjures up is heavily dependent on the surprise factor. So, unlike my typical review style, I will be purposefully vague in the background synopsis.

Book 2 basically picks up where book 1 ends. With Grizz gone, everyone is trying to move on, even as they become inundated in the aftermath of the unraveling of the mysteries that had long been kept secret. Soon everyone starts to question just how far reaching Grizz's sphere of influence is that it could continue to have repercussions even from beyond the grave.

Even as we begin peeling back the layers of deception in the future, like the first book, we continue to get flashbacks to the past, which further color our understanding of the enormity of everything that has transpired.

Chief among the considerations in this book is whether Ginny can accept Tommy's clandestine role in the world that she lived in with Grizz. Additionally, Ginny must continue to self-evaluate what she truly felt all those years ago.

However, just as we start to get some real answers, everything gets turned on its head again with a number of cataclysmic, revolutionary developments that culminate in a huge, nail biting cliffhanger! I absolutely can not wait for the conclusion of this series! As of today, it is still unnamed and no release date has been published on Goodreads, but I do hope that Ms. Flynn will not keep us dying in anticipation for too long!
