Zero Hour by Lili St Germain Book Tour and Review
The final, shocking conclusion to the
#1 bestselling Gypsy Brothers series is
NOW AVAILABLE at the following retailers:
They say a human being needs few things to exist.
Hope for the future,
But most of all…
Juliette Portland had all of those things. Her purpose was simple: Seduce. Deceive. Kill. Avenge. Once Dornan Ross and his sons were dead, her future was supposed to be clear. Her life was finally going to begin. And love… Against all the odds, she had the love of a boy she never thought she’d see again.
Everything should have gone according to plan. Everything should have been easy once Dornan was dead and buried.
Of course, life has a way of fucking with even the most meticulous of plans, and calling in owed debts can have the most severe consequences. Thanks to Juliette’s diabolical retribution, the Il Sangue Cartel has lost it’s Kingpin, but not for long. There’s always someone in the wings, ready to step onstage and seize power. The Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club might be reeling from the deaths of their President and his six patch-wearing sons, but they’ve come back swinging.
Two deadly enemies, hundreds of bloodthirsty members, both sides eager to punish those that would try to topple them.
Two survivors, a man and a woman, forced to flee in the night.
For Juliette, vengeance is a hollow victory.
It never, ever ends.
The flames of incomplete vengeance are licking at her heels, and it’s only a matter of time before the Il Sangue cartel and the Gypsy Brothers catch her in their grip and crush her.
Unless she crushes them first.
I don’t even stop to see what kind of furniture the room consists of. I throw Juliette on the floor and pounce on her like I’m a lion and she’s my catch.
My dick’s inside her within three seconds of the door closing, even though its dark in here, the only light from a couple of candles throwing off weak light. It could be the middle of the day and I wouldn’t have a clue, because all I can see is Juliette Portland underneath me, her legs spread and her pussy full of me. I put my hands around her neck. I want to squeeze. I want to choke her so fucking badly. Goddamn it! I stop grinding my cock into her. I just stop.
“I don’t want to hurt you,” I whisper in the dark. “Julz, the things I used to do in this place—I used to hurt people and get off on it. I don’t want to hurt you, baby.”
She reaches up and grabs hold of my face; I can just make out her eyes, her pupils almost swallowing any trace of green.
“Jase,” she breathes, “What if I want you to hurt me?”
What I Thought
I have followed Jase and Julz throughout the whole Gypsy Brothers series, so I was excited to hear about and then receive an ARC of their epilogue.
Jason and Juliette are in hiding from Julian Dornan and the rest of the Gypsy Brothers and also from The Cartel, with Luis, Elliott and his ex Amy and their daughter, while the DEA investigates and tries to uncover more evidence to be able to make arrests. If they manage to stay alive until this can happen, if they testify against the Gypsy Brothers and the Cartel, they will get immunity from everything they have previously done.
They are all tired of always having to be on their toes, away from home and on tenderhooks. Waiting for the next call, to again say they have to move as their enemies are moving in.
On top of this, Jason and Juliette are struggling individually and as a couple. Their minds constantly wandering to dark places. Secrets from their pasts that could threaten to completely tear them apart. Everything going around in their minds is ugly. They each feel the other is pulling away and are in despair as to how to fix it.
When they get yet another call to say the Cartel has arrived in Miami and they need to move, the group decide to take things into their own hands. They want their lives back. They decide to go home and fight.
But are this group of friends strong enough to take on both the Gypsy Brothers and the Cartel? Can Jase and Julz overcome the darkness that has taken over their minds? Or are these two battles simply too big to take on?
So wow….. I didn’t expect so much from this epilogue. I’m used to reading all hearts, flowers and happiness in epilogues, Zero Hour however, was dark and raw and edgy and I LOVED IT!! It keeps you on the edge of your seat, knawing away at your fingernails, anxious for what is going to come next.
The emotions were so deep throughout, that it pulled me in. I was so worried for Jason and Juliette, I felt like I was right there with them. It was sad to read of their pain, regrets and guilt.
“He’s dead….. he’s dead but your the one that’s gone.”
Dornan may of been dead, but he was still very much in both of their lives, somehow still causing trouble. Jase and Julz have been through so much, both together and apart, will they ever get a break.
Zero Hour is written mainly from Jason and Juliette’s point of view, with the odd chapter written from Elliott. The length is just perfect enough to be descriptive and full to the brim with action without being dragged out.
This is an intense, fast paced and emotional conclusion to Jason and Juliette’s story. One of the best epilogue’s to a story I have read so far!!
