Warning: This is not a typical love story. This is an all-consuming, soul-crushing, tear-your-heart-into-pieces story. It’s intense, gritty and raw, dark and disturbing, and it doesn’t happen overnight. This is an epic love story that knows no boundaries and has no time limits. It grows and develops—with hurt, sacrifice, and heartache—over the span of a lifetime.

Eva Fox is the princess of the Silver Demons Motorcycle Club. Growing up with bikers in the club lifestyle is all that she knows. When she’s a young girl, Eva meets the reason for her existence. Deuce West is the sexy, biker bad-ass of the Hell’s Horsemen Motorcycle Club. Like Eva, he was born and raised in the club—but that’s where the similarities end. Their first meeting is innocent, but as Eva matures into a woman, their chance reunions evolve into a fit of lust and love. Fate continues to bring them together time and time again, but their twisted journey is filled with pain, betrayal, and bloodshed that could tear them apart. Eva sees in Deuce what he cannot see in himself—a man worthy of love—and Eva spends her lifetime proving to him that her undeniable love is the one thing he can’t live without.

This is Eva and Deuce’s story.

It wasn’t easy.
Nothing worth doing ever is.
And love is worth everything.

I said I was gonna sleep on this review because it totally wore me the fuck out….I mean out people. So, I may tend to cuss a little bit more than I usually do or say something crazy, but this is how this book had me feeling…so here it goes (you've been warned).

First and foremost, Madeline Sheehan or can I call you Madeline? Yo, chickie…can I just say you rocked this woman’s world?…totally blew my mind the fuck out. I did so much cussing and head shaking (cuz I can be ghetto like that sometimes) while reading this book, that it was really kind of ridiculous (and btw…I did most the cussing and head shaking publicly *shrugs shoulders*).

Now, let me tell you why I loved this book. Mainly because I just believe that Ms. Sheehan gave me something real, I really connected with her characters and don’t get me wrong I’m all for fantasy…but sometimes I can take the roughness, immerse myself in the dark; hell I might even enjoy it (depending on what I’m dealing with at the time..lols). I saw a FB post sometime ago where the author was saying that she got some hate mail because of this book and I have to say “come on now!…really?!” I may not have liked some of the things that went on this this story, but I can appreciate the honesty of it because say what the hell you want… there are people out there like these characters. We can turn our heads & upturn our noses, but fuck that…it is what is and that people you cannot ignore.

So thank you Madeline for the story…you gave me a early heart palpitations and damn if I didn't want to go find a Frankie and murder his ass on the spot, but that’s how good you wrote this book. YOU pulled me in…I was, no I drowned myself in your world. Eva & Duece…the Silver Demons…the Hell's Horsemen all drove me bat shit crazy.

Eva & Duece…Duece & Eva…they been loving each other since she was five and he was 23...I know fucked up, but as you read this story…you see this relationship taking form and then the more you’re sitting there wondering how the hell this is going to turn out and from the characters in the book…you are thinking its probably not going to be good.

I'll break it down like this…

I liked Eva and then I couldn't stand her ass…but then I thought maybe I’m the one that’s messed up because this woman grew up in this crazy lifestyle….really didn't want to be in it and at some point gave up and immersed herself there. And I wanted to hate her…I really did, but how could I? Because when something that is all you ever known is always in your face and you can't break away from it or someone is is always telling you their world is all that there is for you and there is really nothing else out there for you…would you not believe it to? Would you not convince yourself that fuck! Maybe this is IT? To say I was conflicted about Eva is speaking mildly. Here she was this tough kid that grew up into this tough beautiful woman, but damn in Duece’s words “she was an idiot” sometimes.

Duece…muthafucking Duece. He was a rude and crude dude (oooo…I rhymed!) but in his own way, he was a good dude. You say wha??!! Yeah he was President of an outlaw MC club…pretty much a fucking criminal, but he was respectable (when he need to be I guess) and he protected what was his…he was a good father too. He was honest and upfront (again, crude about his shit too…lols). But this is his world…he couldn't be soft and yes, I was conflicted about him too. But way less than Eva because Duece never lied to Eva and I’m not saying some of the things he did was right, BUT…he was always upfront and honest with her and that is a big ass plus in my book.

And before I got into my hate part of this book…can I just say I LOVED Kami (Eva’s best friend)…now that right there is a down ass chick! And even though her & Eva were from different lifestyles, Kami always and I mean always had Eva’s back. Even when the bad shit went down…I really liked her and yes this is me asking Madeline Sheehan to write about her & Cox because I just have feeling that their relationship will have some bumps.

Now I've said on FB, that I had a love/hate relationship with this book. That hate was really why no one took Frankie ass out once he got of age. I was so mad...spitting angry. It was like it was ignored and I know we needed a conflict, but damn this dude was fucking nuts! And I just don’t see how Eva’s dad let this crazy mo-fo anywhere near his daughter. Kept talking that stupidness “this a family business” WTF?! I was all like “this mutha…“ *throwing my hands up* You get mad at the age difference between her & Duece. But you let her marry Frankie?! Frankie who didn't hide his crazy…it was all out in the open just scaring the shit out of people. I just don’t see how a man such as Preacher can claim he loved his daughter so much and let her marry a nut job like that. Lawd, I was so mad…I really wasn't feeling Preacher on this and I wasn't feeling how everyone just seemed to look away from it. I didn't like it…like he needed a hug instead of a bullet to the, not one bit.

So besides that folks…this was a good, solid story. The world building was true to life and very well written…hard to read sometimes, but still well written. The characters were rough, but I liked them...they drew some emotions out of me…mmmmm…mmmmmm.

You have here a couple who are 18 years apart in age, but the love that spanned this relationship I think is something we rarely see. Duece & Eva’s world wasn't easy…no, not by a long shot. But they came out it the best way they knew how…with their love for each other and the love of their family. It may not be the family that we may see as the norm...they're all crazy and cuss way too much (I really shouldn't talk), but it’s still a family and that...that I gotta respect.
"Whatever this shit is between us, it's always been there and it's always gonna be there. I'm shit-fuckin' tired tryin' to ignore it. I'll try to do right by you, Eva. You'd be the first, but I'll fuckin' try my damnedest." ~ Duece
I say read it...just for the world Madeline gives us alone. It's not all prettily wrapped up..nah, this world is pretty much fucked up and much of everyone in it is too. Its different to read about a world you may know or not know about, but if the author can pull it off exceptionally...then I gotta respect that too.

As Ms. Sheehan says, this is not your typical love story...there is a lot of ugliness in this book. Read with caution.

Find Madeline...
