DNF (had to stop @ 33%) so I am not rating this one I changed my mind and gave it one star which is technically still one star too many ... I think it's pretty safe to say this is one of the worst books ever copied written.

Note from the author:

Dear Readers, you will have questions all throughout this novel; those questions will be answered as you continue to read Seize Me.

Intense. Raw. F@cked up. Gritty. Crazy. Hot. I think that pretty much sums it up. If you don’t love biker books, and you can’t handle reading about the darker side of their life, this one probably isn’t for you. If you do enjoy those types of reads like I do, this may be your next good read!

No one that speaks Russian should read this book....EVER. It will drive you up the wall, batshit crazy.

I love biker books, and I've been curious about this one since a GR friend told me the heroine is Russian. But at the same time I've been avoiding it because nothing bothers me more than inaccuracies in portrayals of different nationalities.

I’ve had this one sitting on my shelf since June and decided to give it a shot this fine early Monday. And while I was reading? Notice how my face changed.


First things first. This book is riddled with typos. I don't know if there's a more recent version out, but my copy I bought in June is filled with errors and grammatical mistakes. As an English major, this bothers me A LOT.

This is me NOT bashing the author or story. This is me giving MY honest opinion. It's a to each his own book world and this book as you will see didn't work for me.

This book crept up on me out of nowhere! I'd not heard of it just last night when it popped up on my feeds and I thought..hmmmm... this sounds pretty good. I LOVE biker books and this one called out to me immediately. Well, I started it and couldn't put it down. Stayed up until 1AM reading then had to force myself to put it down. Finished next morning. This book is gritty and no holds barred... there's no rainbows or sunshine. This is some serious crazy

I can't really say I liked it but can't say I hated it either.
I expected the MC to be a bit more badass, especially since she grew up in this environment.

This is one of those hard to rate books, it had some stuff that I enjoyed but, on the other hand, it had a lot of stuff that was pretty bad, IMO.

I don't typically write reviews from this account. As a rule I try and keep it neutral--but when I come across a book that is STILL stuck in my head weeks after finishing it...well, that one deserves the praise.

This book is about as perfect as it gets when I imagine a MC in my mind. Crystal holds nothing back and I mean nothing, but that is the pure and fucking beauty of this book. It's dark, raw, gritty and so brilliant.

My advice, read this book. But, please pay attention to the author warnin

'Heaven mixed with hell.'

Winter is running from her Russian mafia past. Her heart was broken when her mafia dad murdered her boyfriend in front of her. Winter saw her chance to escape and never looked back.

Braxxon is the Prez of MC. A birthday lap dance preformed by Winter begins their crazy love tail.

I started losing interest for the story when 'insta-love' happened after their first meeting.

I originally read this book in 2013 and I loved it, gave it 5 stars and everything. It happened to come across my feed tonight and I decided that I would do a re-read while and that something a little dark and gritty would be perfect for my mood. Well, sadly it wasn't.

This is one of those books that just show you how much your tastes can change. I didn't re-read more than half of the book before giving up and admitting to myself that this just isn't for me anymore. It wasn't as int

DNF at 40% & I think I only got that far because I'm crazy.

I would love to explain myself, but I won't go back to read the rest of the book in order to do it.

Take books like Undeniable, Club Justice and Reaper's Property, which have all sort of been shadowed by the popularity of Motorcycle Man(which is by no means the 1st of MC drama fiction). These books at least had..."something", like actual reason and some technique.

I love hot biker books that are dark, shocking, intense, and even repulsive. I read the author’s warning, which is why I wanted to read this book. I love being pushed out of my comfort zone. But I had big issues with the way the story is executed.

It was love-lust at first sight when Braxxon see’s Winter dancing on the pole, he knew that this was it, she was his and he’d be damned if she tries to getaway. Winter ran away from a dangerous home, and she is doing everything she can to never go back to that kind of life, unfortunately she has no choice because once she locks eyes with those grey eyes "my mind, body, and soul are assaulted, I know that I’ll never be the same ever again.

I'm going preface this with the face that MC books are big time hit or miss for me. For instances, while I cannot deny that it was an extremely well written story, I just could not like Undeniable. At the same time, I thought the next book, Unbeautifully was beyond fantastic.

Usually my issues with MC books is because honestly, the lifestyle (and especially the role if women, and the usually rampant infidelity) doesn't work for me at all.

This review contains spoilers!

This book is nothing...NOTHING like UnDeniable, UnBeautifully, Motorcycle Man, Reapers Property and so on. Those books are the Sun to where as Seize Me is fuckin' Pluto. Not even close to the brightness and hottness of those books. Seize Me is cold, dead and a long way from being anything but a distant thought. Too harsh? I can't help it. That's how I feel.

Dark. Dangerous. Sensual. Fucked up.

Seize me is crazy read that will take you over the edge of sanity, because nothing in this book is normal or ordinary. Every page bleeds dark emotions and angst that will twist you or even repulse you.

Gritty, raw and full of angst Seize me will hook you from the very first page. You will love it or hate it, because with this novel, there is nothing in between. Before purchasing and reading you have to decide if things like rape, drugs, sex, violence and murd

Hmmmmmmmm. I liked this book and couldn't put it down...however, there were two big pet peeves for me in this one: cheating and physical violence toward women (by the hero against women other than the heroine). Also, there is drug use, so just beware of those things going in. If not for those aspects (especially the cheating and violence) I would have given it more stars, but as I said those are pet peeves for me. I will definitely read the second one though.

Where to begin... I liked the story for the most part. I just didn't love the delivery. The first few chapters were executed really well, I was pulled right into the story. But then things started getting rushed, I'm not sure how else to explain it. All of a sudden I was no longer IN the story, it was like I was on the outside looking in and I was only given the highlights. I missed the build between Winter and Braxxon. All of a sudden they're so into each other and completely monogamous, but I ...more

This book simply does not work for me. The characters feel like acting over the top of the plot. The story is interesting but need to be developed further. There are trigger in this book, especially sexual assault. The chemistry between the characters also stiff and off. The author tries to sugar coat it with a lot of sex. But even the sex is shallow.

Simple to say, its just does not work for me.

This book had two things I hate the most in a book Rape and Cheating and for me that's just too much to handle in one book. The thing is when the male lead was not being an immature d...k he was actually a really sweet guy but then he keeps doing idiotic things and I end up despising him again! The female lead was just annoying I am sorry but from being celibate for so long and then turning into a nympho all of a sudden I just don't get it, def not a book I would read again.
