Series Spotlight & Review - GYPSY BROTHERS featuring FOUR SCORE by Lili St. Germain


Welcome to Venice Beach, California. Home to the Gypsy Brothers motorcycle club.
Confucius said, “Before embarking upon a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”
I planned to dig seven.

Seven Sons
(Gypsy Brothers, #1)
Release Date: January 3, 2014

My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.

Including my innocence.

When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.

Before my father died, Dornan Ross and his seven sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer.

I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I'm out for revenge.

But I didn't expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club.

I didn't expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.

Now, I'm faced with an impossible choice - Jase, or avenging my fathers death?

I have lied.

I have cheated.

I have given my body and my life to the man who destroyed my family and left me for dead.

I have killed, I have sinned, and worst of all, I have enjoyed the misery of others.

I have licked the salty tears of a father mourning his firstborn son, and nothing has ever tasted so sweet.

I have died, and I have been resurrected, a phoenix from the ashes.

I know I’m going to hell. I’ll burn in the fiery pits alongside Dornan and his sons for the things I’ve done, and for the things I’m about to do.

But I don’t care. It will be worth every lick of the devils flames on my guilty flesh to destroy Dornan Ross.

One down, six to go.

My father taught me the importance of an eye for an eye—a cardinal rule, ingrained in every club member.

A life for a life.

Seven lives in payment for an unimaginable list of sins.

People might wonder why I’m doing this. If this vengeance is borne from some noble cause. If I’m trying to prevent others from suffering at the hands of Dornan Ross and his sons.

But I’m no selfless vigilante.

I’m doing this for me. I’m doing it because I want to.

I’m doing this because I just want to be able to sleep at night without seeing their faces.

This is the fate they have earned. The penance for their crimes.
Time to send some of these brothers off with a bang.

Love and hate aren’t all that different.

Two sides of the same coin, the yin and the yang.

Once upon a time, Jason Ross loved me. And now that he knows what I’ve done, I see the love and the hate warring within him.

I see the way he looks at me.

The way he wonders how I could do the things I’ve done.

I hear it in the way he begs me to stop, to leave this life and run away with him.

But there’s only one way I’m leaving LA.

And that’ll be when Dornan and the rest of his sons are dead and buried.

Jase might forgive me for what I’ve done.

But will he forgive me for the crimes I’m yet to commit?

My rating: 5 of 5 ⭐️

The blast has lifted any final doubts Jase might have had about Sammi's true identity and he now sees her more clearly than before.  Coming to terms with that reality and its implications is taking its toll, leaving him torn between elation and disgust. But that won't stop him from protecting her at all cost.

The attempt to try and finish what she started all at once did not have the outcome Sammi/Juliette had hoped for. She may have disabled the main focus of her hatred, but as long as he is breathing, her mission is not complete. This is the closest she has come to losing her steel resolve, and Jase the only one able to shake it.


Chills!!! Absolute chills!! 

And not just because of a doozy of a final chapter.... Nope. Because of a very emotionally taxing and painful series of revelations this instalment holds. My goodness! I was experiencing some of the sheer gut-pain I imagine Jase must have felt upon realizing who he had before him. The conflicted feelings he must feel and how it would mess with someone's head. 
Some pretty interesting hints to new revelations are being dropped as well, in reference to Jase and his past with his father. Some serious questions are being asked and some pretty evasive answers are given, which leads one to think there is a whole area of darkness yet to be explored.

As for Juliette, she cracks in this novella. Truly cracks when she, for the first time, seems to 'feel' genuine emotions other than hatred again. Before she was able to identify and categorize, but not truly experience emotion other than the enjoyment she received from the pain imposed on the subjects of her hatred. But here, she has an opportunity to derive pleasure from a different emotional motivation and it brings her to her knees. Her stubborn resolve wins out, however, and the years of preparation don't allow her to dismiss her plans that easily.

Yet another level of intensity Lili St. Germain brings us to. This novella giving us less of the physical brutality, but showing a tremendous amount of insight in the mental anguish to those subjected and those in witness.

✨Things just got real.... and more terrifying!!✨
