Blog Tour: Withstanding Me by Crystal Spears

Mature Content: Intended for adults 18+

The author provided me both a copy of this novel and the first novel in the Breakneck Series to review for my honest opinion. 

Color me crazy but until Breakneck, I wasn't one of the apparently many on the biker bandwagon. The bikers and the ladies of Breakneck have changed that. These are not easy books to read. Especially if you a romance and flowers kind of lovey dovey reader. 

I like that characters we met and became interested in Seize Me are back. This book (and quite possibly the entire series) is tough. There is drug use, alcohol use, murder and all sorts of random acts of violence and mayhem. But there is ZZ (short for Zig Zag) and his lady Storm. You almost have to read the book just to find out her real name! 

And yes, Winter and Braxxon (the MC Prez) from Seize Me finally tie the knot. ZZ has had his eye on Storm since she and her friends were saved from the club where they had been sold. She is now managing Winter's club and while her eye is also on ZZ, she isn't interested in being just a notch....

But life is short-- especially when you live in Winter's sphere-- and bullets fly and sometimes you just can't resist when temptation walks through the door with tattoos, body piercings and motorcycle boots. 

Seeing the more gentle and caring side of ZZ makes you realize that we may look different, we may act different, but deep down we are all so much more alike than we think we are. Watching ZZ with his daughter-- a mere 13 years younger than he is-- illustrates the frustration that parents all through time feel toward their teenage children. Seeing the camaraderie between the members of the club and their families is special.  

I am looking forward to reading the stories of the rest of the Breakneck series. It is hard hitting and brutal in spots. It is not for the faint of heart.... but it can be heartwarming.

While the chaos and bloodshed have slowed for a short period, life is never quiet in the world of Breakneck. The club is taking time to regroup from internal betrayal and the changing of the guard in a rival group.

Zig Zag became a father at the age of thirteen. While raising a child has never been easy, now his eighteen year old daughter Tatiana makes his life downright hard. She has caught the eye of Travis, the new President of the rival MC Gunners, but all she really wants is Shadow, the newest addition to the Breakneck family. When Shadow’s rejection sends Tatiana running from the only family, home, and safety she’s ever known, ZZ is crazy with worry. The distraction caused by Tatiana’s disappearance could prove to be Zig Zag’s downfall.

If that isn’t enough, ZZ finds himself rampantly attracted to the one and only Storm. She’s beautiful, quick and witty. Their friendship is the one thing that keeps him from growing crazy, and Storm stands by ZZ through all the turmoil. Zig Zag is not accustomed to hearing the word no, so Storm’s constant withstanding just draws him in deeper. Their friendship is one thing keeping him from going crazy, until one night…

The club is regrouping and rebuilding from the mayhem known as the Russian Mafia. A hit is ordered on Tatiana, Storm, Winter, and Piper.

Tatiana’s egg donor reveals secrets that a thirteen year old Zig Zag was too young to understand.

Braxxon is out of reach while he helps Greg Cage deal with some dirty business.

Bloodshed… Secrets… Betrayal… Trauma… Welcome back to the Breakneck world.
