Reign by Jessica Gadziala

June 29, 2020

His lips seared into mine, branding me in a way that was almost painfully hot, but so consuming that I didn't even think about the fact that I was going to walk around the rest of my days marked by Reign.

Reign by Jessica Gadziala
1 notorious 1%er
1 innocent trapped in an impossible situation
1 vicious crime lord
3 people who aren't who they appear to be
= one big (bloody) mess.

Reign is no stranger to the criminal underbelly and hard life, but when a random woman comes (literally) crashing into his life- learning things she has no business knowing, and bringing with her the weight of the city's biggest skin trader, the "hard life" starts to take on a whole new meaning.

-- My Two Cents --

4 stars!

Okay. So Jessica Gadziala gave another hero to fall in love with. Reign was all alpha and super delicious!

Summer was being held captive by V, an infamous human trafficker. A hurricane timed itself perfectly with her escape attempt. After crashing her escape car, and seeing someone coming after her, she takes off running. She has no intention of going back. Lucky for her, the knight in shining armor isn't planning on giving her back.
The passion and chemistry between Reign and Summer was amazing. The author did a great job of providing sensitivity for what Summer went through, giving a glimpse of Reign's softer side.

...kissing her had felt like being in the sun, like feeling the warm rays on your skin after being underground for your entire life.

I got off on the intensity of Summer's situation. Can you imagine being kidnapped and tortured, getting away, finding comfort and safety with an mc club prez, getting kidnapped again, then again, and then tortured some more?

I was worried I was never going to feel clean ever again; the kind of clean that never knew the touch of filth. The kind of clean I had been before.

While I didn't love Summer, I liked her well enough. I just don't like women who are delusional and she suffered a few delusions. Like being as tough as the men in the MC. Girl... please.

...if there came a time when I couldn't tolerate their reckless stupidity and needed to take off on my own, having some kind of weapon would be a major asset.

This from the girl who had never fired a gun. A girl who had absolutely NO self-defense abilities. A girl who was like a fish out of water. Stop it.

Reign was everything. From his tendency to say incomplete sentences to his heart and caring for Summer, he was easy to love.

After finding my way through all the mayhem of this book, I can't wait to find out what happens in Cash's book. As Reign's brother, I've been able to see their similarities and their glaring differences. Cash seems a lot more laid back. I wonder if his leading lady will be the badass Lo. And I cannot wait for Wolf's book.
