So I started this by reading Razer’s Ride, Viper’s Run and Knox’s stand and Sex Piston, Teased, Tainted, Shade’s Fall, King, Cash’s Fight, Fat Louise, Riot, Shade, Stand Off, Lucky’s Choice, Keeping What’s His, Merry Blissmas, Hostage. And now Winter’s Touch I would highly reccommend reading it in the order I have just put above because the series is so much better that way!
There will be spoilers.
So we are back with Winter and Viper I loved their story in Viper’s book and was so happy to be back with them and it starts with a bang. Literally. A bang. Winter and Viper having sex with Train licking Winter out and having Moon and Sasha watching whilst those two fucked. You know so whatever you want about Jamie’s story but damn the woman knows how to write sex scenes and she is bloody fantastic at it.
So through this book we see Winter struggling with the fact that Viper won’t get her pregnant because of the injuries she sustained when she was attacked. And god Winter broke my heart so much through this and her wanting a baby was a major issue that effected her and Viper’s relationship. It was hard for her especially as she was seeing all the other women pregnant.
I also liked how it showed the other side how Viper felt not being able to give Winter the baby she wants because he’s too afraid of loosing her and it was nice to see that side of it too.
Half of Winter and Viper’s problems could have been solved by talking and having an honest conversation especially over Winter’s jealousy with Sasha. But also Sasha should have not made Winter try and hate her because through all of that I was just rolling my eyes because Sasha did not set a good start with anyone.
So one thing that did make me smile was this idea of the replacements that all of the men have chosen one of the other men to be their replacement if anything would happen to them. This becomes a big thing in the next book which is hilarious. I love how Viper chose Train for her and I love that.
So we get a surprise that Winter is pregnant I was so happy for her until you know she realised that Viper would be mad about her being pregnant. When Viper tells her it is not the reaction that I expected, he flips out and walks out she soon finds him at Gavin’s grave where Winter finally gets through Viper. Once he’s over it initially he’s overjoyed with Winter being pregnant and I do love how happy he is eventually although the worry is still there.
So if you’ve read Fat Louise’s story and remember way back when Raul who was Bailey’s husband, there was a stint where the Mexico cartel was brought down and we see in Predator that Jackal goes after him after he blows up the Predators clubhouse, we get a scene in this book where we see Raul come after Winter and Viper and terrifyingly Winter begins to go into labour. We see Killyama kicking some bloody ass during this and I love for Killyama I love her. Sex Piston is by her side as she is bleeding out. Raul is killed and Winter is rushed to hospital.
We discover that Winter gave birth to a little girl who Viper falls in love with the moment he sees her and oh my god it was so bloody cute. Viper names her Aisha. My heart melted when it came to a certain scene in this book so for context. We know that Rachel can heal people as she did Cash and Mag, and then in Tate’s book we learn that he hears death bells. In this book we get a hint of Greer’s gift and damn it’s magnificent, he also heals with the help of the spirits and he did enough to help save little Aisha when she was struggling to breathe due to being premature. It was such an amazing scene and it is definitely up there as one of my favourite.
Viper being a daddy is so bloody cute and honestly I live for it.
I really like the epilogue at the end with a teenage Aisha and I find it so cute that she has a crush on John, Shade and Lily’s son, and honestly I bloody live for it!
