My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.

Including my innocence.

When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.

Before my father died, Dornan and his sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer.

I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I'm out for revenge.

But I didn't expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club.

I didn't expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.

Now, I'm faced with an impossible choice - Jase, or avenging my fathers death?

Seven Sons is definitely very dark, but the fact that Julz / Sammie is such a kick-ass heroine, one who will do whatever it takes to get her revenge made it a great story anyway.

My Seven Sons review:

They say revenge should be something deliciously cold (in French, the saying is: La vengeance est un plat qui se mange froid) however, Seven Sons showed me that revenge can definitely be hot, too. Sammie’s hatred is what has gotten her through life for the past few years, planning on how to kill the man who killed her father, after making him suffer as she picked off his sons… The ones who destroyed her life, and made her think there is no sweetness left for her at all.

What got to me the most in Seven Sons was the lengths Sammie was willing to go to in order to exact her revenge, and I really can’t wait to see what she will do next. For a short story, it was definitely filled with action, and character development, as well as quite a bit of creepiness.

Written mostly in first person point of view, from Sammie’s perspective, and in present tense, Seven Sons felt like a hit to the gut, both in a good and a bad way…  If you’re a fan of dark erotica / romance, this series is for you!

Some of my favorite Seven Sons quotes:

I know things, see. I know things that the police don’t, about purchased alibis and body disposal spots, about too many girls who went missing and too many men who kept too many secrets.

But now, standing here like this, so completely naked and alone, I shed a single tear. For ma father. For the little girl I used to be, who had everything ripped away. I shed a tear because she is about to die, six years after she cheated death.

The entire time, I seethe inside, the same way I have seethed for the past six years. What was born as fear and grief has long since blossomed into hatred and rage.
