Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Withstanding Me by Crystal Spears

Withstanding Me (Breakneck Series, Book #2)
By: Crystal Spears
While the chaos and bloodshed have slowed for a short period, life is never quiet in the world of Breakneck. The club is taking time to regroup from internal betrayal and the changing of the guard in a rival group.

Zig Zag became a father at the age of thirteen. While raising a child has never been easy, now his eighteen year old daughter Tatiana makes his life downright hard. She has caught the eye of Travis, the new President of the rival MC Gunners, but all she really wants is Shadow, the newest addition to the Breakneck family. When Shadow’s rejection sends Tatiana running from the only family, home, and safety she’s ever known, ZZ is crazy with worry. The distraction caused by Tatiana’s disappearance could prove to be Zig Zag’s downfall.

If that isn’t enough, ZZ finds himself rampantly attracted to the one and only Storm. She’s beautiful, quick and witty. Their friendship is the one thing that keeps him from growing crazy, and Storm stands by ZZ through all the turmoil. Zig Zag is not accustomed to hearing the word no, so Storm’s constant withstanding just draws him in deeper. Their friendship is one thing keeping him from going crazy, until one night…

The club is regrouping and rebuilding from the mayhem known as the Russian Mafia. A hit is ordered on Tatiana, Storm, Winter, and Piper.

Tatiana’s egg donor reveals secrets that a thirteen year old Zig Zag was too young to understand.

Braxxon is out of reach while he helps Greg Cage deal with some dirty business.

Bloodshed… Secrets… Betrayal… Trauma… Welcome back to the Breakneck world.
*ARC provided by author for an honest review*

Before I get into my review, if you can not handle excessive cussing, violence, explicit sex, and down right crude behavior then do NOT read this book. There are plenty of disclaimers to warn you in advance both from the author and reviewers so you know what you are getting into. Nuff said!

After reading Seize Me, I was hooked on The Breakneck Series. Winter and Braxxon's story was everything you would expect from a book about the prez of a motorcycle club. There was violence, drugs, hot sex and crude behavior. So, I knew without a shadow of a doubt I was reading book two. 

What I didn't expect was loving it even more then the first book!

ZZ and Storm's story is much more intense than Winter and Braxxon's.    I think the reason being because it didn't start off all about sex. They had a deep emotional connection from the start. But ZZ refuses to admit it. He thinks if he can just f*ck Storm, he can get her out of his system and move on. It is SO obvious that is not going to be the case, especially since Storm refuses to allow things to advance that far without love being involved. But you can't blame the guy for wanting to avoid anything to do with the "L" word once you hear all of his story.

This book isn't only about Storm and ZZ though. It is told in multiple POV's, including Winter and Braxxon. It was nice to get more of their story. We also hear from Pyro, who is still trying to recover from Lana's death. There is even some Shadow and Tatiana POV in there and let me tell you, something is brewing with these two. I can not wait for the next book to find out more!
