So for the most part all of Jamie Begley’s series are interconnected, and for me I read them in reading order (Jamie has this on her goodreads page and at the beginning of each book). I am so glad I did read these in reading order because I feel like I got way more enjoyment out of them than if I had read series by series. So I started this by reading Razer’s Ride, Viper’s Run and Knox’s stand. This review will contain spoilers from the other books and probably minor spoilers for this book.
So from the moment we met Sex Piston in the first book you know this bitch is going to take you for a ride. And damn did this girl take you for a ride. She was feisty, loyal, independent, stubborn and refused to back down and she refused to let people in.
Stud the new president of the Destructors as it has now become a charter of the Blue Horsemen he is also a very dedicated leader as well as father, he’s charming and cocky and persistent, he’s also hell bent on taming Sex Piston. And damn the man does a good job.
I felt so bad for Sex Piston as this story opens up and we discover that Ace the old president of the MC before Stud took over had managed to get an 18 year old club bitch pregnant on one of their many breaks and although she never says it you know it hurts her.
One of my favourite things in this book is how much Stud tries to tame Sex Piston and her crew. The way Sex Piston and Stud aggravate each other kills me, it was one of my favourite parts of the whole book. And I have to admit Stud is a very smart man to try and tame the crew he gets Sizzle Sex Piston’s mother to babysit which then Sex Piston begins to get the crew to help out taking care of his kids’ whilst he is doing club business. I love that he especially uses baby Star to get what he wants from the women. Babies manage to melt everyone apparently.
I have decided that Sex Piston is the sister that you all need, the sister that is willing to fight by your side, call you out on your shit, and still be by your side whenever you need them. She is that for Diamond and when Diamond went back to Knox I love that Sex Piston was by her side willing to help her.
Which that scene then brings my next favourite scene where Stud barges into the Last Riders Friday night party and basically lays claim on Sex Piston. I fucking love it just because he gets so angry about her being in another club house and is then carried out the house by his VP. I love that he was practically willing to start a war with another clubhouse over Sex Piston.
Stud racing is also extremely hot in this book, it makes the man seem a thousand times more hotter.
So we get a surprising secret told in this book about Stud’s kids, although Meri and Keri are his biological children, Star isn’t. Stud took on his brother’s child taking care of her and that made this man seem even more perfect. I love that he was willing to take on his brother’s baby and provide for her and care for her just like she was his own. Especially as Star’s mother isn’t involved she’s just a druggy and when she does appear she manages to put Star’s life at risk. We see some very surprising emotion from Sex Piston in this book once she manages to get Star back and we see her breaking down with Star in her arms and it is the cutest most beautiful thing.
I was so surprised Sex Piston was a virgin, one of the ways Stud manages to get Sex Piston to chill is by tricking her into thinking they had already had sex when she was hammered. Both of their reactions when they find out the truth is hilarious. I love the shit Sex Piston gives Stud for lying to her.
These stories wouldn’t be complete without some kind of life and death and that came in the shape of Joker and Dale attacking Sex Piston’s hair salon when Lily was there and now we all know how Shade gets with Lily. Our boy was mad. So Lily luckily manages to call someone sneakily and the Calvary arrives inform of Stud and the Destructors and Shade. Fat Louise gets shot and poor Lily gets her hand broken and stabbed. A favourite part of this book is once they are all at the hospital Sex Piston manages to calm Shade down a little bit and tells her that she’ll be okay and she’s strong. Shade was mad. It only makes me want to reread Shade and Lily’s book faster!
We all know Sex Piston is unique so of course the way she tells Stud she’s pregnant is going to be unique and damn it was. She tells him by wondering if being a fruitcake is hereditary, as her mum seems to be a little loony, Diamond is scared of zombies that much so she has an island. I love that baby reveal and it was so cute.
I really loved this book and it’s characters and it does hold a special place in my heart. Sex Piston is someone we all need, she takes care of everyone without them even noticing and I am so glad she got the recognition she deserved in this book.
