Bo (Bad Boys of Retribution MC #3) by Rie Warren: I have read all of the books so far in this series, I have to tell you they just keep getting better and better and better. I love that we get to go back and visit old friends from the previous books as well as the original series. I love that every book has a twist to it and sets the reader up for more to come. As with the other two books in this series, Bo (Bad Boys of Retribution MC) can be read as a stand alone.
Bo is a war vet suffering from PTSD and trying hard to hide it. Being back in the States for 6 months now, he has yet to let his family know, afraid that they will look at him differently, afraid that they will not want him back. Of course his good friend Hunter has gotten him in good with the Retribution MC and has even found him a a shrink to help him sort through his stuff. What Bo does not count on is the instant and insane attraction he has where Dr. Veronica Hartley is concerned.
Veronica wants in the worst way to help Bo through his PTSD. Fighting her attraction to him, knowing that it is unprofessional in every way, she tries everything in her power to get Bo to open up to her, but the problem is that Bo does not want to seem weak in front of the beautiful Doctor. Besides, if Veronica is willing to keep her past a secret, why should Bo open up to her.
When Veronica’s past catches up with her and collides with her present, it will take Bo, the MC and his military buddies to get to her and get her back before it is too late.
I loved the interaction between Bo and Veronica. They has some sparing matches that showed just how tough they both are emotionally. Bo’s family was roll on the floor funny and is interactions with his siblings and his parents left me smiling. The physical and emotional connection between Bo and Veronica was white hot and burned up the pages of this book.
I look forward to the next and final installment in the Bad Boys of Retribution MC.
From the world of Carolina Bad Boys . . . Bo Maverick is ex-Force Recon and a force to be reckoned with.
I’m a lover, not a fighter. Yeah, right. Talk about bullshit. I’ve been fighting all my life, and I know zip about love. Frankly, I don’t want to. More than bullets whizzing past my head or the very real possibility of ending up dead, love scares the shit out of me. I’m used to guns and killing, blood and dust.
That’s what I feel for this woman, my goddamn shrink, Veronica. Doctor Hartley digs inside my head. She asks me questions, which I never answer. I’d much rather take the smart, sexy Doc to bed, but I can’t because of our clinical relationship.
My last Force Recon mission destroyed any semblance of humanity I had left. Those little triggers go off all the time now. When I’m asleep. When I’m awake. When the memories are raw. I bolt up, at knife point again, but there’s no enemy now.
Just Veronica and me.
Veronica. Doctor Hartley. I told Bo to call me Ronnie like everyone else, but he refuses. He shows up like he has a cattle prod shoved up his ass and sits through the allotted hour for his counseling session impervious to every approach. He’s powerful, forceful, explosive. He doesn’t scare me.
My marine doesn’t speak, but his sharp gaze pierces me all the same. He watches me with all the greed of a hunger never sated, a need never fulfilled. A desire never explored. He stows his secrets safely away, but I’m patient. I’ll get to him if he doesn’t get to me first.
And when I have him? I’ll want him forever. I know this. But I can’t. His past might be complicated, but mine is a minefield, one that will blow up in our faces before all is said and done.
Too bad. We could be so good together.
