Review: Seize Me by: Crystal Spears

Seize Me (Breakneck Series)
By: Crystal Spears

Synopsis: ***WARNING***

This novel contains explicit language, sex, drugs, abuse and sexual situations that some might find offensive. 

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.

For readers 18 & up only!


     Seize Me is raw and gritty.  It is messy and cruel.  The author's warning in the blurb is justified.  There are some very heavy and disturbing scenes.  There were, however, some very sweet moments, albeit unconventional.  I always enjoy seeing seemingly big tough men brought to their knees by a woman (in more ways than one).

     Winter Belov is running from her past.  Running from her family.  Running from her father who shot and killed the one man she loved right in front of her.  She will never go back.  Not unless she is dead.  Winter settles down on the other side of the country doing the one thing she loves and the one thing that would bring her father shame if he discovered.  She becomes an exotic dancer.  Dancing is something she has always loved doing and being up on the stage helps her drown out the world.  Everything was going OK until she is invited to dance at private party for the president of the Breaknecks.

     Braxxon Breaker is only thirty years old, but he is the president of the MC the Breaknecks.  It isn't a position he expected having at a young age, but with the passing of his father he finds himself running the show.  His crew surprise him with a little show for his thirtieth birthday.  The moment his eyes landed on Winter he knew she had to be his.  Dressed and white with feather angel wings, she was his Angel in hell.

     Braxxon and his lifestyle is the type of situation Winter has tried to avoid for a year.  She doesn't want to live that way again, but there is something about Braxx that calls to her and he refuses to give her up easily.  Winter has stirred something within Braxx that he can't explain.  He can sense she is trying to stay away, but he is too selfish to let her go.  When a rival MC learns of Braxxon's affection for Winter she becomes a target.  Despite his best efforts Braxx is unable to protect her and she is dragged into Hell, changing her forever.

     I have to say I enjoyed seeing Winter's transformation, even if it was hard to witness how that change took place.  Watching as she went from a woman who doesn't take anyone's shit to a total bad ass was great.  From an Angel in Hell to one of Hell's Angels.  The stronger she became the more I liked her.  The harder her attitude turned the more I wanted to see what would happen next.  I loved it!  The passion.  The hate.  The revenge.  The Love.  I like every bit.

     I am looking forward to reading ZZ and Storms story in Withstanding Me and the rest of the Breakneck series.  I am officially a fan of Crystal Spears!

Happy Reading.
