Overview

REV (Bayonet Scars, No. 3)

Everyone belongs somewhere. Even the misfits.

With the looming threat from the Mancuso Crime Family, the Forsaken Motorcycle Club is preparing for a war that could destroy them. Grady, the club's Sergeant-at-Arms, knows that love makes you weak, and he has zero interest in adding to his liabilities– especially now. He's already got his teenage daughter who keeps him on his toes and a beef within the club that could fracture his relationship with a fellow brother for good.

For Holly Mercer, her life is finally getting on track and the last thing she wants is trouble from her hometown's resident outlaws. Keeping her nose clean is easier said than done, when suddenly she finds herself embroiled in club business. Holly might like the idea of being with a real-life bad boy, but even being in the same room with tough-as-nails Grady flusters her.

When Holly inadvertently finds herself on Mancuso's radar, she has two choices: trust that Grady will protect her, or continue to refuse the club's help. Both roads are dangerous, but only one has the chance to damage her beyond repair.

Love is never more dangerous than when it can destroy you.

Originally posted on my blog: Tangled Up In Books I received a copy of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating! Before I start things off with this review there's something I need to get out there for those of you considering this series. As I've stated in the previous reviews for the first two books this is a dark romance series. There's usually something big that happens before the end of each book and the "holy crap!" factor is being upped with each book so far. There is a scene nearing the end of Rev that is frankly...quite disturbing and very, very graphic. For those who are slightly squeamish, oh heck even for those who are tough to crack, this will be very hard to read. I myself ended up having to skim through it at a certain point. Just know this ahead of going in, but honestly that still might not even prepare you for it. Moving on... --The scene takes me back to being in high school and wondering what it'd be like to date a bad boy. That was when I thought only bad boys could be no good for you. From the moment I started this series I've been pretty much consumed by it. I've read these first three books in just a few short days. From the opening of Ride I was sucked in and hopelessly intrigued by them and the characters. I've lost track of time and lost sleep, I'd start off telling myself "I'll just read for a couple hours and then I'll go to bed." which would later turn into "it's 3am?! When did that happen?!" Which sucks when your alarm goes off 3 hours later... --I bet she's so tightly wound that she's never even jaywalked before. Having not really known much about Grady ahead of time, except for like his position in the club, and Holly being an entirely new character Rev was a surprise for me all the way around. Right off the bat I liked Holly. She's different from the girls in the first two books. Alex having grown up a mafia princess and Nicole having grown up in the lifestyle and raised by one of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club. So they're both used to strong, dominant, take no bullcrap types of guys. Holly is, while not entirely innocent by any means, she has a past of her own, but it's nothing compared what she comes up against getting mixed in with the club. I absolutely loved her. She is tough as all hell, she doesn't back down from Grady or let him intimidate her, she has a heart of gold. It was a lot of fun seeing her get mixed into their crazy world and watching her try to adapt. --The man emits intimidation and sex appeal like they're disposable, yet charm is something he lacks. For a bit I didn't think I was going to like Grady like I have both Duke and Ryan. Due to some heavy events from the first book Grady has a major beef with Ryan. We're talking punches being thrown level of beef. And being a big fan of Ryan I wasn't having Grady's attitude. Though the more you get to know the guy the easier it is to understand and see his point of view with the situation. He has eventually come to be my favorite guy from the series so far (though Jeremy may give him a run for his money in the next book!) I think maybe it's the whole single dad thing and seeing him interact with his daughter, Cheyenne. He's seriously probably one of the meanest and toughest guys in the club so far but seeing him be daddy to a teenage girl...well it melts your freaking heart pretty quickly! --I won't let this man be number eight. I'm sure you're probably thinking to yourself, "Well, Sheri, you gave us that huge warning at the beginning and yet you still gave it 5 stars...that just doesn't make sense!" I will try to explain without spoilers because honestly I think, aside from that one scene, this was my absolute favorite book so far in the series. Hands down. I feel like though, if you look at this book as if it were a true story, or hell even a movie or something, the events from the end of book two lead up to the situation in this one happening. If you look at the types of people that you're dealing with it's plausible and very real. Did I like it? Oh hell no! Two innocent people got messed up both mentally and one physically. Just because the realness of the situation was hard to process, doesn't mean it lessened how much I've enjoyed this book or even the series this far. All I know is, by this point, I can definitely handle whatever J.C. Emery throws at us next! Um...I think... I'm beyond excited for Crush and Burn to release and I'm hoping so much that they won't be the end. There's still a couple guys at least who I'd like to have a story (Diesel). I'm still just as hooked as I was when I finished Ride but sadly now is the waiting game. And I don't even know how long!!

This was by far my favorite of the series to date. I loved how the main character, Holly, was never a part of the MC World to begin with. It was fun to see an outsider find her way in with Grady. Am looking forward to the next installment.

Not a bad series...the men are wild, dirty, nasty, scoundrels. ..hot as hell. LoL. Probably not a guy in the lot that I wouldn't be terrified of just "looking at the cover" but get to the core of any them and wow...there's a man worth having. Totally fiction....but the saying still stands..never judge a book by its cover. Going to check out her other books. Can't wait for more in this series! s.

This book was definitely much more raw and emotionally compelling than the previous two. I was so very sadden and distraught over the events that happened in this book, it literally brought a tear to my eye it was so sad. I was really looking forward to reading Grady's book, because he was older than Ryan and Duke from the first two books, I was curious to see if he was going to behave more maturely and while he did speak just as crassly and rudely, he really wasn't ruled by his libido like those two young bucks were, so that was a nice change. I don't really know how to feel about Holly's character, she seemed a bit lost at times due to her poor decision making, at other times she was very strong and courageous, at others she was a scared little thing. It's like her mind and body were playing Marco Polo against one another at times, they just couldn't agree on one thing. I suppose the fact that she fought so hard for her students and wouldn't give up on them gives her major points but that's really it. Oh and I knew that crap with Darren was going to come back and bite them in the ass...I just knew it...I can't wait to see how the club is going to handle not only that whole Darren mess but that whole Mancuso mob mess as well....

Great book. It can be a stand alone but, continues the saga of the Forsaken MC. Holly is a little naive at the beginning but she figures things out and has a subtle take no crap attitude. Happy day for me, Grady is a lot more reasonable as a character than the leads of Ride and Thrash (started off hating those two) Extremely violent rape scene toward the end. This does gel with the story line so if that bothers you skip this story. Otherwise excellent .

Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I was laughing by page 76! By chapter I was cringing and reading with one eye like 'dammit it Holly don't do it"! This is my second book read in the series,not sure I'll read the first. Ryan just seems like he's a jackass! >sigh< That's to say I'll read it later!! Ha!  I loved Sterling "don't call me Sterling" Grady from book two.  he seemed like such a grumpy old man ... he's still grumpy in this one but he's far from an old man. Seasoned and been threw lots, but he's not old. The book does have a few dark moments ... but it's done in a way to not be unrealistic or glorifying violence as it's part of the plot. Like someone else posted can't wait to see how the tie up the Jennings mess. Di I mention I totally thought the mature Sterling Grady was hot? Overall a really good book!

¿Chills!! of all kinds...... ¿ My rating: 5 of 5 ¿¿ Hating the fact that she allowed herself to make a series of poor choices that ended her back in her hometown, broke, and living in her parents' house, made Holly Mercer determined to dust herself off, pull up her bootstraps and get herself back on track. But when her job at the local high school puts her in the path of the pig-headed father of a troubled teenage girl, who happens to be part of the local biker club, both her resolve and her libido find themselves on shaky ground. Forsaken MC's VP, Grady, is trying to cope with the loss of his good friend and mentor and doesn't have time for some pain in the arse school administrator to stick their nose in his family. She may be pretty, but he has no time in his life for goody-two-shoes. He has bigger fish to fry. Like the Mancuso Family, who haven't let up on the threats against the Forsaken MC. But when those threats occur on school property and involve his daughter AND the school administrator, Grady doesn't pull any punches and quickly introduces Holly to protective measures, MC style. It doesn't take long for their antagonistic relationship to combust into a passionate inferno once Grady has Holly safely ensconced in his house along with the rest of his family. With protection detail spread thin, there was no other option to ensure her safety, and he frankly didn't mind having her that close. But that doesn't mean she can't be found, or hurt........ ***** Best scene in a book, EVER!!! And this is how it starts......  "You see that - that nervous excitement you're feeling? I'm under your skin. You don't have to like it, but I'm there," he says so quietly it comes out as a whisper. ....it's all I'm gonna give you, because this is a scene that has to be experienced. I adored it!! The tension was phenomenal. There was so much said in this book without words. That may sound weird when talking about a book, but JC Emery has found a way with REV to write very suggestively. Use described body language and peripheral description to outline the underlying context, which fills itself in as you read. The characters are studies in itself, that appear to be perhaps a tad two-dimensional at first, but with the scene I allude to above, they show a completely new awareness that injected this story with many more layers. It forced me to pay closer attention, to read between the lines more and not just go by the words on the paper. Although I guess the book could theoratically stand on its own, I strongly suggest you read both RIDE and THRASH prior to picking up REV. It will provide you with some necessary backstory, to which there is plenty referral. As well as an introduction to the full cast of characters and their individual dynamics, which plays quite a big role.  There are some horrendously graphic scenes described in this book. I refer to one incident in particular, but I feel it has a purpose in this story, the entire focus of the series as well as - what I suspect to be - the prep for perhaps a future installment. Very well written, but utterly disturbing. This entire series is highly recommended, but REV is so far my favorite. It feels there has been maturing in the writing by JC Emery. A trust she is putting in the reader now, to pick up on innuendo and suggestion she puts out there, that I haven't seen before. It's a compliment to us, her readers. And she does it damn well!!! ¿Chills!! of all kinds...... ¿ **Copy provided in return for an honest review**

I enjoyed reading this book, Grady and Holly's story. I wish they would have hooked up earlier on and that Grady would have shown more interest in Holly. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Who will ibe next?
