*** DARK ROMANCE ***
“People are like stained - glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”
- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Life is dark for Steph.
After swearing never to be her own worst enemy again, she’s forced to battle her demons once more as events in her life push her to the absolute limits of self-preservation.
And she needs to do it alone.
Pete is back in the place he swore never to return to, all in the name of protecting Steph from the dangers of his past. But are yesterday’s ghosts the only threat they face?
When true intentions are laid bare, can Steph find the fight within to pull herself out of the darkness? Can Pete close the last doors on his past, or will he realize what is truly important, too late?
Their history may shape the people they are today – but nobody said it had to define their future …
About the Author
Author of Paranormal, and Contemporary Romance. I rediscovered my love of reading after never really having the time with working full-time, and two small children, and in doing so I realised I didn't just want to read the books - I wanted to write them. So I put fingers to keyboard and wrote. Then wrote some more. And before you know it, here I am now. I decided that at thirty it was high time to stop living a 'what if' life and give my dreams a chance. Lost deep in thought one day as I walked the kids in their buggy, I realised that I didn't want to be an old lady who sat and reflected on her life thinking 'what if I had tried?' I wanted to be an old lady who reflected on her life and thought 'At least I didn't leave a stone unturned.'

Once I got about half way through this story I couldn't put it down. Pistol is by far a amazing character. He's hott, sexy, and totally a badass. The way he handles everything that comes his way damn. He really gets the crap end of things. Trevor that man can come take me away any day. Bult like a fort truck and the sexy as hell accent I bet the ladies fall head over heals for him I really hope he gets his own story that would be amazing. Steph also known as Cutie I really didn't like her, I feel like she's a weak characters always feeling sorry for herself that is until she takes charge this time around and talks things over and well other things (don't want to give a spoiler). She really breaks out this time around. The events that take place in this story are wow great. The attention to details is super amazing and every single word that was written was magnificent. I would recommend this story to anyone just read the series in order. MUST READ ***I received this ARC for free in exchange for my honest thoughts***
I wasn't sure if I would like this series,but I really did . mayhem,friendships,trust,fun and sex. Great read.
We start of as Steph leaves Pistol and Trevor at the airport as they on their trip to Ireland, and she worries that she'll never see him again, that he'll never want to come back. While alone Steph is pestered with unwanted old friends. Pete's business in Ireland gets intense but try's to finish it as fast as possible so he can back to Steph. They start texting which get really hot and makes Pete work even faster to get his job done. A great conclusion, I really enjoyed this intense series, every book was a page turner and would highly recommend it. 5/5.
I received an arc copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review... well Max Henry you are a miracle worker!!! Recoil is book 3 in the Banjaxed series & leaves off straight where Loaded (book 2) left us.... at the airport saying bye to Pete & Trevor whilst they deal with things in Ireland & Steph deals with her past in Australia all alone. Things for Pete & Trevor go well, except for a few bumps, whilst there in Ireland... Pete comes to a mjor decision for when he gets home... Meanwhile Steph has to deal with Ivan (who would hav thought I'd hate the guy in book 1), a funeral & her own insecurities... I wont let too much out for you, you'll have to read it to find out the juicy details & let me tell you Max didn't leave them out at all, we even had some long distance sexting..... Life isn't all roses & sunshine, so why do we expect our books to be??? I want gritty, I want real, I want hot, I want ink, lets not forget that accent... Anyway Recoil is hot, hard, intense, gritty & real all rolled into one tight novel that completes this trilogy. I must say it does leave me with questions though... mainly about Trevor, Marcus & Carla (HINT, HINT here Max).... But I'msure Max will help me out with that, one day, in the future :P
