An outlaw motorcycle club sets up shop next door to Sea Haven in the dangerously sexy new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

A brutal education in a Russian training facility for assassins has taught this group of men one thing:

It's a long road to redemption.

JUDGMENT ROAD

As the enforcer of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, Reaper lives for riding and fighting. He's a stone-cold killer who turns his wrath on those who deserve it. Feelings are a weakness he can't afford--until a gorgeous bartender gets under his skin...

Near Sea Haven, the small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life. And she's desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper's imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat.

Anya's touch is everything Reaper doesn't want--and it brands him to the bone. But when her secrets catch up to her, Reaper will have to choose between Anya and his club--his heart and his soul.

Audio Rating: 3.50 (not part of the overall rating and not because of the narrator–he was a 4.00)

Quick Story/Character Thoughts: If you have read/listened to the Sea Haven/Sisters of the Hearts series then you know Christine tackles some pretty heavy material. This is really heavy material so I have to start with you should have some trigger warnings (mostly around sex and force). I also need to state that while I loved the story (even the hard to handle parts), it did make me have reservations about the main characters (which I will put in a spoiler section in a minute). This is going to be gritty series with hopefully quite a few books. With the shared background, I imagine each will come with some hard to handle storylines. In the end, while the treatment between Reaper and Anya would never ever work for me, I felt for these two characters it worked. There were some definite lines that depending on how you look at it might have been crossed aka my character rating but overall this story works for them. I also thought Christine was very good at staying true to the story even when it got rough (aka the story rating). Overall good listen but tough!

Audio Thoughts: First Jim was fantastic as these characters but the Audible version had huge long pauses between sections. Long enough that I was questioning whether my phone was pausing (it wasn’t). You should just know that so that you don’t question your sanity during the listen which is well worth the time.

  1. This is a tough one, and even though I loved it (but I like those tough gritty MC reads) its NOT for everyone. Its not a book everyone will like since there are some tough situations that are handled.
