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. Winter’s Touch, Train’s Clash, Standing His Ground, Crazy Bitch, Rider’s Revenge and now Stalked. I would highly reccommend reading it in the order I have just put above because the series is so much better that way! You will get the full story for this series and honestly it’s great.
This will contain spoilers.
So I think compared to some of the other novel in this series this one is a little different. At least to me it felt a little different. We start the story with Zoey writing letters to her mum and that is a theme all the way through this book and I really liked the added extra of those letters it gave so much about her past and her family and it becomes a big part later on in the book. The letters are heartbreaking and they hit you in the feels that’s for sure.
So when we meet Zoey I knew she was going to be a ride. I felt it straight away I knew that she was going to cause a stir and yes she did. The moment she saw that dog we all knew she was going to fall in love with him and she did.
I couldn’t stop laughing at one point in this novel and it’s at the beginning so Hannibal is a puppy from one of Grace’s dogs and when the puppy goes missing, do they tell Grace? Nope. They hide it and when she finds out boy is she mad. But I love her reaction to it and how mad she is at the men for not telling her about the missing supper.
I love how attached Hannibal gets to Zoey but it’s also hilarious how mad Stump gets about it. Especially as Hannibal gets slightly depressed because he misses Zoey. I just think that’s so cute and dogs are just the purest.
Stump and Max made me laugh so many times through this book they are both hilarious and I love it. Especially after Max accidentally lets Stump go again and he ends up you guessed it straight back with Zoey.
So we have the plot of this book of a stalker who we begin to believe is after Zoey but over the course we learn he’s not after Zoey he’s trying to warn her to stay away from Ginny, which I do believe this will work it’s way into Ginny and Gavin’s story when the trilogy is finally released. In regards to the stalker storyline it is very much left unfinished and you don’t get to know who the stalker is in fact.
I really liked the chemistry between Stump and Zoey especially because Zoey was oblivious to the way Stump felt about her and she barely had any self esteem and my heart broke for her. She truly believed that nobody could love her so when Stump told her he loved her god my heart broke because she still didn’t feel like she could be loved. That all stems from her daddy issues.
So we learn more about Zoey’s family and that her father is in fact a conman who swindled many women out of their money and at times used Zoey as bait for new women. (Sounds like an episode of Criminal Minds. I remember that episode so well.) Zoey has been through a lot when Zoey’s dad’s wife finally clicks on that he’s stealing her money and her families. He decides to run only this time Zoey has a baby sister. Her dad kills the wife and the baby sister and Zoey is that distraught she kills her dad. Like could you imagine going through all that it would wow, you can understand why the girl has issues. Or why she lives with barely any stuff which Stump knocks the reason on the head pretty quick.
Greer appears in this book! I love Greer. Anyway I thought it was hilarious that he tries to set Zoey up with Dustin. We also get to see just how powerful Greer is when he maybe heals Cole (we don’t get to find out if it works or not until Dustin’s book). I think in that scene with The Predators and some of the members of The Last Riders standing around lending help to Greer as he tries to heal Cole. I just think that it’s so powerful. I also love that Zoey figured it out that Greer could heal before she even saw the healing. She nails Greer on the head immediately.
So we have more of a setup for Ginny and I still can’t wait for her books.
So the big bombshell at the end of this book is that Zoey’s dad wasn’t actually her father. No. Zoey was kidnapped as a baby and her parents have been looking for her ever since. Stump manages to find the address and rather going through the authorities, Zoey decides to leave all her letters at their door and tell them if they want to know her to meet at the park. And oh my god that scene I was sobbing like a baby. It hit me in the feels and I was destroyed.
