I opened the boot, and at the sight of the girl, Crush began grinning. “Hey, is that for me, too?”
“You can go fuck yourself!” The little tart blew up instantly. “You evil bastard, let me go!”
“Whoo! I like her!”
Crush is a man who enjoys performing to the stereotypical outlaw biker image. This time I could see he meant it, and so did the girl. She opened her mouth, spotted Crush’s cut and went very quiet.
“You can’t have her. She’s my collateral.” I pulled her towards me, snapped through her ankle ties with the box cutter and threw her over my shoulder. She muttered furiously, but she’d stopped fighting. I could feel her raise her head and look over the crowd of gathering Disciples. She shivered and went limp. I guess she didn’t like the look of the party.
Crush was still curious. “Collateral for what?”
“Alistair’s man took my Busa.”
“You’re shitting me!”
Fracas Macintyre has been in and out of trouble all her life but this time it’s worse than ever. In debt to a loan shark, she’s caught up in a war between the Alistairs, nicknamed The Irish Mob, and Belial’s Disciples, England’s nastiest MC. Kidnapped and at the mercy of Caden Winslow, Fracas is convinced that life is going to get very nasty indeed.
Caden Winslow is an ex soldier used to taking care of business. When an Alistair henchman steals his beloved Busa, he simply takes one of theirs hostage and expects a simple trade will solve the problem. However, Caden is about to be pulled into a war.
Warning: This book contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex. It is for adults only.
Tanya Rae’s rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fracas Macintyre is just trying to survive. Men use her and think she is a “tart” she isn’t one, she is just trying to survive and the first man that shows her some attention (taking her out to dinner on a date) she took up with him. But, of course he is a bad man. Now she happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. I definitely get the title of the book “Helpless” because Fracas is. At times she lets her temper get to her and she bites back, sometimes at the most inopportune times. Caden Winslow at first uses her because he caught her with the person that stole Caden’s Busa and Caden starts off using her as collateral to get his Busa back. But, then he starts trying to protect her when he realizes she isn’t just some “tart”. Now you need to read this book for the rest of the story.
I have read a couple of other books by A.J. Adams and have loved them. So I was very happy to read Helpless. I did have to look up a few words since I live in the US and I am used to our vocabulary. I had no idea of what a Busa was and it is a brand name for a motorcycle.
I received Helpless for an honest review and I give it 4 stars. I look forward to reading more from A. J. Adams.
