My rating: 4 of 5 stars
HUSHED TORMENT is book two in the Iron Fury MC and although it’s a standalone, I’d recommend reading book one first (I missed the first one…oops!) because the characters and storylines are interwoven. This is a bad boy, opposites attract, suspenseful, slow burn MC romance and I’m rating it at 3.5 stars. So, let’s be clear…I flippin’ LOVE a possessive, bad, bad boy! And MC romances are some of my most favorite tropes. That being said, I had a really hard time with Malakai’s character. Half the time, I didn’t like him too much because..well, there’s a line between being possessive and being an a$$. The other half, I had a hard time connecting with him because his chapters were kind of repetitive and focused mostly on the club but not on him as a person. I liked Amalie better even though she wasn’t as strong as I normally like a heroine to be. But she found her inner diva eventually and honestly, given her circumstances, I found myself relating to her easier. Still, I liked the premise of the book, I enjoyed the secondary characters and I’m looking forward to reading more in the series! Told from dual POVs with a happy for now ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
One accident changed my life.
