Seven Sons (Gypsy Brothers, #1) by Lili St. Germain
My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.
Including my innocence.
When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.
Before my father died, Dornan Ross and his seven sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer. I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I'm out for revenge.
But I didn't expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club.
I didn't expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.Now, I'm faced with an impossible choice - Jase, or avenging my fathers death?

"Today my name is Juliette Portland, but tomorrow I will wake up as someone else entirely. Someone who will bring Dornan Ross and the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club to their knees."
Seven Sons isn't just dark, this first instalment of the Gypsy Brothers MC is seriously fucking brutal. There are no hidden leather clad heroes here; the Ross family are feral, cold, soulless creatures who relish in the kill. They consist of rapists, murderers, drug dealers and carry no remorse or regret for their actions. They rule Venice Beach with an iron fist, and if they want you, you bend to their every command and say thank you. Such is now the reality for Juliette aka 'Sammi.'
It's been six years since her MC Father was murdered, six years since the Gypsy MC kidnapped and gang raped her at fifteen years old, and six years since she last saw Jase, her friend and first love. How unfortunate that he is the youngest son of Dornan Ross, the man she once called 'uncle' and the Prez of the Gypsy MC.
Only now is the time to put her plans of vengeance into action as she goes under the knife to give her a whole new look and identity. Her mission is simple: infiltrate the club, gather crucial damming evidence and destroy every last one of them. Only her plan is foiled when Ross takes a very keen interest in the 'new girl' and she finds that sex with the Enemy has its perks when she gets full access to the club and its members.
Sleeping and pretending to care for the man who destroyed you is a very bitter pill to swallow, but for Sammi it is her one way ticket to hell and shes going to take the Gypsy MC right along with her...
And my goodness what a ride its going to be. This ain't no love story, this is a woman rising from the ashes, a vigilante hungry for revenge. I can't help but admire her, even though she is playing a deadly game. One false move and bang...game over! This is the reason why I loved this novella, there is no fluff, no reformed bad boy finding solace and freedom in love, Seven Sons is the complete polar opposite. It is violent and cruel. Parts are quite sickening actually and yet the flow, the writing, the switch between past and present tense hooked me in and didn't let up until the end. There's no doubt about it, Lili St. Germain can write!
My only gripe is the length. Seven Sons can be comfortably read in a couple of hours and knowing that this series will be broken down into novellas of seven is a little frustrating if I'm honest, as this could quite possibly have been one hell of a standalone that would easily rival the best of the best. But, I can't deny that I will be continuing with this series because as an MC crime thriller goes, Gypsy Brothers, #1 has so far proved to be one heck of a story!
Dark literature / Biker MC fans need to read this!!!
