Taking Avery by D.H. Sidebottom
Taking Avery is the first installment in the LILITH'S ARMY MC by the duo Ker Dukey and D.H. Sidebottom. If you are familiar with their work, you know that when you start one of the or books, you'll be in for some insane stuff... yet, it's not at the feeling I had reading this one. Don't get me wrong, there are gruesome scenes and very dark moments, but I found that the general tone was lighter than what I'm used to with them.
Avery is 18 and the princess of the Fallen Cutters MC. After her and her friends are being attacked at the gas station, she is kidnapped by the rival MC, The Lilit'h's Army. She then encounters the completely unhinged Brenner, his brother Slade (aka Frost) and Tank their dad.
The two MC have been at peace for several months, that's why Tank wants to maintain that peace and protect his son from Grip's (avery's farther) wrath and proposes a deal to Avery, one she has no choice but to accept.
She finds herself on the road in Slade's company, and to be honest, the way things evolve between those two wasn't t what I expected at all.
Avery is young and feisty but at the same time rather innocent and self-conscious. She understand why she has to comply but at the same time, can't help but challenge Slate.
Slade, 10 years older than her is a well developped character. As the son of the Prez, he is ruthless and demands respect, he follows the rules of his MC. His loyalty is for his family and his club before everything else. But he is caring and gentle, sweet with Avery. Not one to really appreciate living in the MCNOLDY compound, he lives in a nice home, even enjoys cooking, etc... There is a duality in him that I found very interesting.
I appreciated that although the chemestry between them is undeniable, they took their time and he certainly didn't force himself on her. Respect, empathy become the base of their relationship. Avery's hilarious comebacks mixed with Slade's hot innuendos were really entertaining.
It doesn't mean that Taking Every isn't very intense and passionate, though!!!!
After a while though, I started wondering where the authors were going to take us; Then, bam, suddenly, the dynamic of the book totally changed and turned darker. Violence, after deceit, after betrayals, family ties and royalties are tested in an action packed ending that left me reeling and in need of the next book Finding Rhiannon!
