Review: Seize Me by Crystal Spears

Seize Me
By: Crystal Spears
Winter Belov was the sweet innocent one in her crime family, the dutiful daughter that never disappointed her father. One day, her father does the unspeakable. When he turns his back, Winter flees across the country, taking her life savings with her, determined never to enter that sort of lifestyle again.

No longer innocent, she now lives in Nevada. Lana is her best friend and the only family Winter has. Together, they are two of the best exotic dancers in the county. While working a shift, Pyro, Lana’s long time crush, propositions Winter. He begs her to do a private gig at Breakneck. She accepts, with the condition that Lana dances with her.

When Winter’s eyes lock with Braxxon Breaker's, the President of Breakneck, she realizes she is no longer free; she has been seized. He is everything she is running from but at the same time, everything she wants. Braxxon will not take no for an answer, and purposely disrupts Winter’s life.

Rivals of Braxxon’s club are vicious and they do something that will have him out for blood. Winter's and Braxxon’s relationship is anything but a normal one. If they want to be together, crimes must be committed, friendships will be broken and people are going to die.

What happens when all that chaos mixes with Winter’s father locating her? It will be a bloodshed when Winter and Braxxon seek revenge and take no prisoners.

It wasn't the book synopsis that sold me on reading, it was this...

A letter from the Author

Dear Readers,

You will have questions all throughout this novel; those questions will be answered as you continue to read Seize Me. I would also like to warn you that I did not hold back on any details with certain aspects of writing this novel and some areas might be difficult for you to read. I wanted to make my fictitious world gritty, raw and full of angst. Nothing is held back. So here is my warning before you enter the world of ‘Breakneck’. If you can’t stand reading about drugs, violence, sex, murder and vengeance, then this isn’t a world for you. It also contains explicit language and some rape scenes. Although I thank you for purchasing my novel, I feel it is my duty to warn you ahead of time.

Sincerely, Crystal

Any book that an author feels the need to include a disclaimer like that, HAS to be effin amazaballs, right?

And now that I have finished, I have to agree this book was definitely worth the read.

If you have an issue with violence, cussing, sex, rape, drug use, strippers, motorcycle clubs then this is NOT the book for you. But if you are looking for an edgy read that includes all the above and more, this is a book you definitely want to read.

I am not even sure how I truly feel about this book. I can tell you this much, Winter is a better woman than I am. Because Braxxon's balls would have been cut off with some dull scissors very early on. The shit he pulled with her on numerous occasions would not have sat well with me. AT ALL! But such is the life of in the MC or so I hear anyway.

The drug use by the people in this book seems as common as breathing is to others. For someone who wasn't supposed to be "addicted", Winter snorted the lines like there was no tomorrow. But after all the shit she went through in this book, she needed something to dull the reality that was her life.

This book is about as far from real life as you can get and honestly that is what I liked most about it. Reading is after all, an escape. And while there are times that I want my reads to have some believability to them, other times I just want to get lost in the make believe. And Seize Me provided me with just what I was looking for.

Definitely a series I will continue to read!
