This book follows on from King and Tyrant which is where I first met and fell for Bear who is a sexy badass Alpha Biker belonging to his Father's Beach Bastards MC but decisions were made and he chose to walk away from his Father, the Brotherhood and the Club. Bear was fully aware that he'd just become a dead man walking because that's the only way you left the BB MC. At the start of this book he was drowning himself in blow, booze and willing babes because he was a broken, tortured and violated man now just waiting for death to knock on the door but instead his phone rang.... and one phone call changed everything.
Sweet, innocent 17 year old Thia held a promise ring given to her by a handsome Biker when she was just 10 years old and the promise was that if ever she needed a favor in the future then she should come and find him. His name was Bear and for 7 years she kept that ring on a chain around her neck never believing she would ever use it. But, one sad, heartbreaking and bloody day Thia did just that.... she went to find Bear and cash in her favor but at the Beach Bastards MC Bear was gone and all she found was a terrifying nightmare dished out by the evil and sadistic hands of their Prez.... Bear's Father.
This started a chain of events that had Bear and Thia reluctantly thrown together, they initially verbally taunted and sparred with each other as the sexual sparks flew, they were hunted trapped and killed to save one another, they claimed each other in a possessive, sexual and all consuming way, they fell in love and then they were ruthlessly torn apart by one of T M Frazier's torturous twists. And, if that wasn't enough, there was an even bigger shock and twist as she so cruelly leaves the book with a humdinger of a cliffhanger.... and the promise that all Hell is about to break loose.
This isn't a romance, it's a claiming.... but even so it's still a poignant love story between two broken people who are desperately trying to save each other but are sadly failing. It's dark, gritty and raw and there's no flowery pretty words instead the words are tortured, possessive, lewd, crude and intense..... but nevertheless they still say "I love you". This listen is riddled with suspense, tension, danger, sex, passion and the absolute assurance that everything is gearing up to explode in the second part of their love story where Bear will have to fight.... fight to be free, fight his vengeful ruthless Father, fight the BB MC, fight to keep Thia safe and fight for a HEA for them both. Told from both POV's, includes well loved characters from books 1 and 2 and both narrators did a great job.
Worth a credit? T M Frazier certainly knows how to write a tense, addictive and gripping dark love story with twists... and I fear this is just the storm before the tsunami that is about to be unleashed when book 4 in this series is released - and I can't wait. YES it's absolutely creditworthy if you like your Heroes primal and your storyline shades darker than normal. But I only wish I knew beforehand that this was going to end with a cliffhanger because I dread and avoid them at all costs until the full story can be enjoyed all in one go - so now you've been warned.

T.M. Frazier builds on the amazing MC world she created in Kings story, and takes the listener on another ride full of danger, betrayal and passion. I really enjoy her writing style, dialogue, suspense, twists and the little humor she weaves in, but what really make these stories awesome are the characters. They are well developed, unique, strong and you can't help but to fall in love with them.
Molly Glenmore and Rob Shapiro performance was Oscar worthy! They really nailed the tone of the story and delivered on all the emotions, steam, and grit. I'm a fan of this duo!
Well worth the time, credit or sale! Highly recommend for any MC fan who loves their stories with a dark edge and even darker characters. Can't want for the next amazing ride.

King and Tryant where both really good. Both story, performance and style. Lawless was disappointing and starting to become predicable. Author clearly has a formula and uses the same structure over and over again. Bad guy who swears a lot seduces innocent little girl. Why do the girls have to be virginal and 18? With King and Rays story you could overlook the age thing but to make Thia 18 years old too is just starting to get creepy.

Every reread, every listen on audio, makes it harder to choose which book is my favourite.
Rob Shapiro and Molly Glenmore did an amazing job with Bear and Thia. Not making this a long review - have to go one-click Soulless now. Just make sure you read this series and then listen to them on audiobook. Brilliant.

I loved Bear’s first book. I can’t believe the end and I can’t wait o get home from work and start on his second book straight away.
