RECOMMENDED FOR READERS 18 AND OLDER DUE TO
STRONG LANGUAGE, SEXUAL SITUATIONS AND VIOLENCE
Out of Time is book two in a series. It is not a standalone novel. I highly recommend that you read my first novel, Nine Minutes, to be able to understand the background stories of the main characters. There are many twists and turns in both stories that can best be connected if read consecutively.
Although I do answer all of the outstanding questions from Nine Minutes, there is more to this story, and some readers may consider it a cliffhanger. If you do not like cliffhangers, you may want to wait until the third novel is released in 2016.
They thought with his execution it would all be over.
They were wrong.
The leader of one of South Florida’s most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they’ve been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top.
In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida’s Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason “Grizz” Talbot and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal.
Not even Grizz’s inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government’s most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he’d once abducted and later made his wife.
Once Grizz’s obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she’d first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair have spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they’d once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he’s finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the façade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can’t seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bonds that hold them together.
And with Grizz finally put to death, now Ginny has learned secrets so dark, so evil she’s not even sure she can go on.
Will these secrets tear their love to pieces? And how far will Grizz go to protect what he still considers his, even from beyond the grave?
When I’m first read Nine Minutes, I was unsure where Out Of Time would go. Beth’s first book and such a winner in my options, I was scared I would be let down! That was not the case! Beth did an amazing job keeping me just as sucked in and Intrigued as she did in the first book! For being a new writer……. She is amazing! Two books in and endless possibilities!
It’s hard to talk about heros when there is kinda two… If you read the first book you know what I mean. We get a lot of flash backs of both grunt and grizz and learn about most of their pasts. They become interconnected after a certain point but they are also kept separate. I have always loved grizz and seeing his past…. Made me love him more, I wasn’t a huge fan of Grunt, but in this book he grew on me. Young grunt is the best grunt!
Oh Ginny….. She was amazing! We learn a lot of new things about her in this book, and most of the stuff….. Could make a great heroine reach her breaking point and become annoying, or unlikeable. But I loved how she was still so amazing, strong and resilient, no matter what she went thru, she never chanced for the worse only became stronger.
We get to see how past relationships were formed and the reason things were done the way they were in the first book, I am so grateful for that! We get to see into the marriages of the main characters, but even more then that we get to see how some relationships formed and bloomed into what they are, what they had been, and maybe even what they could have been.
You think you know something but then things come out of left field….. thats happened so many times in this book. You meet some of the characters or important players in the lives of the characters, and you wonder….. Why….. Your option might change or you might want to scream…. But that’s part of the ride!
As for the plot! It will blow your mind and make you wonder….. What did I just read! We get a lot of back and forth from the past, answering questions from book one. Then you get more questions that are going to be answered in book three. This isn’t your typical MC romance, but it’s also not your typical Romance either! It’s a keep you in the edge of your seat read. The plot twists! Wow, I just never saw them coming or even imagined that they could be possible in this story, they they were!
Beth is a new writer and I think she nailed it again with this book! I personally thought she had been writing for years and tried to find other books of her after I read book one only to find out that she was new! I applaud her for her amazing ness to drag us in and make us want to stay trapped in this world that she has created!
- Grunt finally grew on me.
- Ginny has an amazing take no shit attitude
- Grizz has a past that broke my heart and I loved seeing all sides of him
- The twists that this book took! Never saw them coming! Never, never never!
- The world of the Gang that we get sucked into
- The kids! I loved jason! And MMi…..it will be interesting to see what happens there
- That ending!!!! Omg, way to make us question everything we knew! Well….. What we thought we knew!
- I pretty much liked everything about this book!
It was too short! That is my only dislike, it’s not even short, I dislike that it ended!
This book is amazing. Make sure to check out the first book, Nine Minutes before reading Out of Time, you will be lost and spoil everything from book one. Beth is an amazing storyteller and when this series is over……no cant wait to see what she has in store for us!
“Yes! There is something I want for my birthday. Something I really want! I’ve been thinking about our prom date last year.”
“You want another romantic night at Martin’s beach house?” He grinned, relieved. A night making love with Kit at the beach house. Ohhhhh yeahhhh.
“No. Not the beach house.” She was bouncing in her seat now. “I want you to take me out! Dancing. I want to go to a club and go dancing.”
His smile faded and he looked a little deflated. He wasn’t going to tell her his name. He wasn’t going to go to church with her. How could he tell her no to the third thing she’d asked for?
“Shit, baby. You have to know I’m not a dancer. I barely got by with the slow dancing in Martin’s gazebo.”
“I want to go dancing, Grizz. Please! The only time I ever get to dance is when I convince Axel to dance with me in number four. And you know that’s barely ever. He won’t do it if there are a lot of people at the motel. He doesn’t want to risk being seen.”
Grizz had to smile at this. He’d walked in more than once on Axel and Kit dancing to one of those groups that Kit loved. If you asked him, those guys’ voices sounded like someone had their balls in a vice. A high-pitched squeal is all he ever heard and he never stayed around long enough to listen to an entire song.
“Why do you dance to a song about a bald-headed woman?” He’d asked her once.
Axel and Kit had stopped and peered at him strangely. “What do you mean by bald headed woman?” Kit had asked as Grizz turned the stereo down.
“These guys, who sound like women, are singing about a bald-headed woman,” Grizz replied.
She’d started laughing. “The Bee Gees are saying ‘more than a woman,’ Grizz. Not bald-headed woman! The song is called More Than a Woman and I happen to love it.”
“Whatever it’s called, it still sucks. I’m outta here.”
Grizz appreciated that Axel danced with his wife. And yes, he knew Axel’s other secret, too. He honestly didn’t care. He didn’t care what any guy decided to do with his dick as long as it was never near his wife. But he also knew he had to keep Axel’s secret. As leader, he had final say as to who could be in the gang. Still, he knew not everyone would be tolerant of Axel’s lifestyle. It was just easier to let it stay a secret. And besides, he was certain nobody suspected a thing.
“I don’t dance, Kit.” Grizz said now, shaking his head.
“But I want to go dancing for my birthday.” She folded her arms and gave him an accusing look. “You asked!”
He shook his head slightly and looked at her. “Can’t I just buy you another car?”
