Review – TETHERED SOULS by Beth Flynn

Beth Flynn is back with a Nine Minutes spin-off novel about Mimi and Christian Bear!! Check out my review and get clicking!!

My family has secrets. I’m always the good girl, doing what’s necessary to keep my loved ones safe. I’ve kept the darkest secrets from everyone I know. As painful as it is to hold them all inside where they live and gnaw away at me, that’s where they must stay.

I haven’t seen my closest childhood friend, Christian Bear, since I was a teenager—he hasn’t changed a bit. He’s still temperamental and plays by his own rules with the law following two steps behind him.

Christian remembers me. But he doesn’t know the first thing about me anymore. I should’ve shared my feelings with him the day before I moved away with my family, promising him I’d stay in touch. It broke my heart when he didn’t keep his end of the bargain. As a consequence, we haven’t spoken in years. Even though Christian and I have always had undeniable chemistry, I won’t let him shatter my heart a second time.

Christian has shown up in my life again with secrets of his own, and demanding answers. That doesn’t mean I’m willing to give them. He’ll know my secrets when I’m ready.

Our secrets, the risks we’re taking, and the danger he imposes make it impossible to know what our future holds.

Either our tethered souls will bind back together, or our secrets will separate us forever.

The Nine Minutes series by Beth Flynn is one of my absolute favourites so I love any and every chance I get to revisit these characters. We first got to do it with The Iron Tiara (Anthony Bears story) and now we get to do it with Tethered Souls – the story of Mimi (Grizz’s daughter) and Christian (Anthony’s son). Like all of Beth’s books, this was one that gripped me and had me rushing to get to the end.

I absolutely love Christian! His love for Mimi since they were children has been apparent throughout the entire series, and I was so happy they finally got their chance at a HEA. Christian is not a guy you would want to get on the wrong side of, but when it comes to Mimi he’s a big teddy bear!! Mimi has also always been a great character for me – she’s tough and doesn’t let people walk all over her, but she’s also got a big heart and it was great to see both characters grow in this book.

There were a few surprises throughout Tethered Bonds – in fact one part shocked me so much I gasped and shouted “no way!!” Haha! I’m definitely interested to see where all these characters lives take them in the future, and I’m fairly confident with the way things were heading that we will be getting a Slade book soon, so hopefully we will get more then!

Oh, and I love, love LOVED seeing Grizz and Ginny again. Grizz owns a huge part of my heart and seeing him at this stage in his life is just perfection, and made me want to do an instant series re-read! *dreamy sigh* Grab your copy of Tethered Souls, and if you’re not up to date on the series yet, what are you waiting for??

Review – NINE MINUTES by Beth Flynn

I am KICKING myself!! Read my review of Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn to find out why!

On May 15, 1975, fifteen-year-old Ginny Lemon is abducted from a convenience store in Fort Lauderdale by a member of one of the most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs in South Florida.

From that moment on, her life is forever changed. She gets a new name, a new identity and a new life in the midst of the gang’s base on the edge of the Florida Everglades—a frightening, rough and violent world much like the swamps themselves, where everyone has an alias and loyalty is tantamount to survival.

And at the center of it all is the gang’s leader, Grizz: massive, ruggedly handsome, terrifying and somehow, when it comes to Ginny, tender. She becomes his obsession and the one true love of his life.

So begins a tale of emotional obsession and manipulation, of a young woman ripped from everything she knows and forced to lean on the one person who provides attention, affection and care: her captor. Precocious and intelligent, but still very much a teenager, Ginny struggles to adapt to her existence, initially fighting and then coming to terms with her captivity.

Will she be rescued? Will she escape? Will she get out alive—or get out at all? Part psychological thriller, part coming-of-age novel, filled with mystery, romance and unexpected turns, Nine Minutes takes readers into the world of one motorcycle gang and inside the heart of a young girl, whose abduction brought about its fall.

My heart hurts. I’ve been asked if I have a pulse, never mind if I heart, because I hardly ever cry at books. And I mean hardly ever! But this book… It hurt. It still does. I just couldn’t stop the tears. That last paragraph…that last line… Ugh, my heart. This is without a doubt a book which will stay with me for years to come, and is easily a favourite book of 2016.

I think it was the fact that the book is set in the 70’s that put me off reading it for so long, even though I have a huge love of biker books. I finally loaded it up on my Kindle and decided to give it a shot before the author attends Four Brits Book Fest in June, and oh my word… To say I devoured this book (and it’s sequel) was an understatement.

I became so obsessed with this story t hat I just couldn’t stop reading. I read and cried my way through this book in just one day, and then started on the sequel. within two days, I ‘d read both books, and by the following day, I started on an instant re-read. They were just that incredible. I loved this heart wrenching story so much, and even now, it’s been weeks and weeks since I first read them and I just can’t over Grizz and Ginny’s story.

The first two books in this series completely took me over, and I can’t wait for the third and final book, releasing this summer, to do the same. Absolute must reads!
