ARC Review: Nine Minutes (Nine Minutes #1) by Beth Flynn

RECOMMENDED FOR READERS 18 AND OLDER DUE TO STRONG LANGUAGE, SEXUAL SITUATIONS AND VIOLENCE. 

This is Book One in a series. 

On May 15, 1975, fifteen-year-old Ginny Lemon is abducted from a convenience store in Fort Lauderdale by a member of one of the most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs in South Florida. 

From that moment on, her life is forever changed. She gets a new name, a new identity and a new life in the midst of the gang’s base on the edge of the Florida Everglades—a frightening, rough and violent world much like the swamps themselves, where everyone has an alias and loyalty is tantamount to survival. 

And at the center of it all is the gang’s leader, Grizz: massive, ruggedly handsome, terrifying and somehow, when it comes to Ginny, tender. She becomes his obsession and the one true love of his life. 

So begins a tale of emotional obsession and manipulation, of a young woman ripped from everything she knows and forced to lean on the one person who provides attention, affection and care: her captor. Precocious and intelligent, but still very much a teenager, Ginny struggles to adapt to her existence, initially fighting and then coming to terms with her captivity. 

Will she be rescued? Will she escape? Will she get out alive—or get out at all? Part psychological thriller, part coming-of-age novel, filled with mystery, romance and unexpected turns, Nine Minutes takes readers into the world of one motorcycle gang and inside the heart of a young girl, whose abduction brought about its fall.

Nine Minutes is full of MC Love! Get ready for a wild, insane ride!

Ms. Flynn took her time in developing these characters and the story line is intense and gripping!

It's an unconventional love story of Kit (aka Ginny) and Grizz. It all started with a kidnapping--yep a kidnapping. Kit is a naive 15-year old and is quickly picked up by and taken to a MC--Satan's Army. Grizz, becomes obsessed with Kit and then takes her as his wife.


Kit's life changes after that! She finds love with her husband, but never like the club business lifestyle. Reading Nine Minutes, I wasn't sure where this book was going to take me, and that is what made it a fantastic read!

I don't want to say anything about the story, other than what the synopsis states, because a must read and it will blow your mind. 
Nine Minutes is a complex story with a lot of different layers and it's best to ride it out.  It is  dark, gritty, intense, shocking, and raw, page-turner. And I'm looking forward for more.
