Review: Helpless By: AJ Adams

What It's About?

I opened the boot, and at the sight of the girl, Crush began grinning. “Hey, is that for me, too?”
“You can go fuck yourself!” The little tart blew up instantly. “You evil bastard, let me go!”
“Whoo! I like her!”
Crush is a man who enjoys performing to the stereotypical outlaw biker image. This time I could see he meant it, and so did the girl. She opened her mouth, spotted Crush’s cut and went very quiet.
“You can’t have her. She’s my collateral.” I pulled her towards me, snapped through her ankle ties with the box cutter and threw her over my shoulder. She muttered furiously, but she’d stopped fighting. I could feel her raise her head and look over the crowd of gathering Disciples. She shivered and went limp. I guess she didn’t like the look of the party.
Crush was still curious. “Collateral for what?”
“Alistair’s man took my Busa.”
“You’re shitting me!”

Fracas Macintyre has been in and out of trouble all her life but this time it’s worse than ever. In debt to a loan shark, she’s caught up in a war between the Alistairs, nicknamed The Irish Mob, and Belial’s Disciples, England’s nastiest MC. Kidnapped and at the mercy of Caden Winslow, Fracas is convinced that life is going to get very nasty indeed.

Caden Winslow is an ex soldier used to taking care of business. When an Alistair henchman steals his beloved Busa, he simply takes one of theirs hostage and expects a simple trade will solve the problem. However, Caden is about to be pulled into a war.

Warning: This book is a dark romance. It contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex. It is for adults only.

My Thoughts

I was all for this story at first, reading the blurb and the cover really grabbed my attention; but as the story went on and on I found that I was having a hard time getting into it. I thought it seemed as if it kept repeating itself over and over. Of course that was when I reached the halfway mark. The next few chapters after that really got me into the story and I of course ended with really liking it. The author really does a great way of getting the so many details in the story to make sense of everything and makes the flow of the story blend really well. I was completely thrown for a loop by the time I reached the end I couldn't believe what I was reading and how different it went then what my own thoughts were. I was deff thrown for a huge loop and I couldn't of been happier, hell it made me want more of the story once I reached the last page. The romance part of this story was different it was more harsh and bam in your face but you can't see me type thing. Once I got reading I almost thought this was going to be a MC romance story but the more and more the story went on it was completely different not so much on the romance side but more on the mystery and thrill side of things. The main characters in this story spent it the whole time fighting with each other or most likely getting to know each other on a personal level.  Caiden this super strong and alpha to the core male, wasn't thinking about anything but revenge in it's finest form, that crap happens and his plans change; and boy do they change in a major way, talk about falling in love wow all at the worst time ever. Fracas, this strong nad really independent female, has nothing going for her in life right down to how she meets Caiden. Nothing is what it seems for her, everything that goes bad or wrong does. She is loyal and really fierce to the bone doesn't take crap even from bikers. They make a really amazing couple. So I did give this story 4 stars I think it is a must read and one that is really really enjoyable. I laughed, cried and even got angry and to be really honest I love when stories make me feel I get more in touch with the characters that way and more into the story. The pace had it's moments but other then that I would deff say it's a MUST READ. I know it took me longer then I would have liked to finish this but at some parts it wasn't a very great page turned as other parts. Still a really great read!!!
