Series: Bad Boys of Retribution MC
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 14, 2015
From the world of Carolina Bad Boys . . . Bo Maverick is ex-Force Recon and a force to be reckoned with.
I’m a lover, not a fighter. Yeah, right. Talk about bullshit. I’ve been fighting all my life, and I know zip about love. Frankly, I don’t want to. More than bullets whizzing past my head or the very real possibility of ending up dead, love scares the shit out of me. I’m used to guns and killing, blood and dust.
That’s what I feel for this woman, my goddamn shrink, Veronica. Doctor Hartley digs inside my head. She asks me questions, which I never answer. I’d much rather take the smart, sexy Doc to bed, but I can’t because of our clinical relationship.
My last Force Recon mission destroyed any semblance of humanity I had left. Those little triggers go off all the time now. When I’m asleep. When I’m awake. When the memories are raw. I bolt up, at knife point again, but there’s no enemy now.
Just Veronica and me.
Veronica. Doctor Hartley. I told Bo to call me Ronnie like everyone else, but he refuses. He shows up like he has a cattle prod shoved up his ass and sits through the allotted hour for his counseling session impervious to every approach. He’s powerful, forceful, explosive. He doesn’t scare me.
My marine doesn’t speak, but his sharp gaze pierces me all the same. He watches me with all the greed of a hunger never sated, a need never fulfilled. A desire never explored. He stows his secrets safely away, but I’m patient. I’ll get to him if he doesn’t get to me first.
And when I have him? I’ll want him forever. I know this. But I can’t. His past might be complicated, but mine is a minefield, one that will blow up in our faces before all is said and done.
Too bad. We could be so good together.
Warning: Graphic sex, graphic action, graphic language. Triple X caution.
This is book three in The Bad Boys Of Redemption, but you don't need to have read the previous books, it just helps a little with the other characters and their stories.
Bo is suffering PTSD after an op went wrong and he opted out of the Marines. He refuses to see anyone about it, until Hunter puts Docter Veronica firmly in his sights. Bo doesn't wanna TALK to Veronica (he refuses to call her Ronnie!) oh no, his thoughts about the good doctor are much more carnal, primal, and oh so unexpected! But Veronica has her own demons, least of all that which is embedded in her skin, across her back. And when those demons come a-knocking, the men of Redemption pull together like no other.
This series grows and grows and gets deeper into the minds of these men, and pulls them up from whatever depths they wallow, and I loved it!!
Bo is a much more complex character, I thought, than Hunter and certainly Kinkaid, but no less vocal in his likes and dislikes, He likes to keep schtum about his nightmares, his flashbacks, hell, even his parents don't know he is home. But the men of Redemption are sly in helping their friends, and Hunter is the one to make appointments for Bo with Veronica, after she helped him. Bo just ain't having any of it! BUT OH! That boy did fall hard and fast! Very hard, and very fast. I did like Bo, I really did.
I loved how, when threatened, the whole group, and some outsiders, pulled together for Veronica, and for Bo, even if they blurred the lines between legal and not.
I have to say this, and, unless it bothers me again in future books IN THIS SERIES I'll not say it again, but SINGLE PERSON POV, is so usually not my thing. I say it often enough, Hunter got 4.5 stars because of this, BUT Kinkaid got 5 stars and so does Bo. Yes I would have liked to hear from Veronica, of course I would. She isn't quite as vocal as Sadie, and I did miss that. But not enough to knock stars off.
I would like to read something else Rie Warren has written, something off the MC track, just to see what she does!
5 full stars

Rie is the badass, sassafras author of Sugar Daddy and the Don’t Tell series–a breakthrough trilogy that crosses traditional publishing boundaries beginning with In His Command. Her latest endeavors include the Carolina Bad Boys, a fun, hot, and southern-sexy series.
A Yankee transplant who has traveled the world, Rie started out a writer—causing her college professor to blush over her erotic poetry without one ounce of shame. Not much has changed. She swapped pen for paintbrushes and followed her other love during her twenties. From art school to marriage to children and many a wild and wonderful journey in between, Rie has come home to her calling. Her work has been called edgy, daring, and some of the sexiest smut around.
