im going to start of by saying, that on my short list of must have authors beth flynn is at the top! I’ve been able to message with her and she never made me feel like I was a bother, she never ignored my messages and just just real! There are a few other authors I can say that about. So beth wrote a book, an amazing book, a strange, mind screw of a book. That book is titled Nine Minutes!
This isn’t you typical love story, this book is gritty, disturbing, dark, scary, and pure amazingness.
“On May 15, 1975, fifteen-year-old Ginny Lemon is abducted from a convenience store in Fort Lauderdale by a member of one of the most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs in South Florida.”
With a discrptions that starts out like that, then yes, your in for one wild ride! At 15, being taken would be a scary thing, but Ginny is so strong, even tho she is scared she survives. She does what she has to to make sure she lives. At the start of the bbest ok I was freaked out, all I could think was, that’s just so wrong. There are parts that make you want to break the closest thing to you. But then, everything changes and it’s not sick, it’s not wrong, it transforms into a beautiful story between Ginny and grizz, with some grunt thrown in there.
Grizz: massive, ruggedly handsome, terrifying and somehow, when it comes to Ginny, tender. She becomes his obsession and the one true love of his life.
At first this man was sick but he had all his own reasons for doing what he did. It didn’t make it right, but it made it understandable. He and his “family” took Kit in and made her life better then it had been, it wasn’t perfect, but for the most part it was better. With kit, grizz could be gentle and sweet. Then he could be this c ld asshole that gave off the don’t fuck with me vibe. To me. That made him hotter! 🙂
So begins a tale of emotional obsession and manipulation, of a young woman ripped from everything she knows and forced to lean on the one person who provides attention, affection and care: her captor.
Ginny comes to terms with where her life is and we see her grow as the times goes by. Despite the fact that she was raped she overcomes all the odds you would expect. She gets to experience a life she wouldn’t have had if it wasn’t for grizz, even with the bad. By the end of this book you sit there wondering to you self, what makes this ok? How can I be ok with what happened, but beth flynn ropes you in and makes you fal in love.
The ending, oh lord that ending. It left me so confused! I am still confused and I have read it many times in the almost year that it’s been out. I truly loved the motercycle gang member in this book. If your a biker fan you will love the closeness of this group. They are family.
Will she be rescued? Will she escape? Will she get out alive—or get out at all?
All of those questions and more will be anwsered in this book, but will leave you wanting book 2. Book 2 will be out soon, it’s titled Out Of Time and will just as amazing as the first book! I for one can’t wait!
