"How much longer are you gonna keep withstanding me, darlin?"

Storm stands up and grabs her clipboard off the bar before answering me. And that answer blows my fucking mind wide open.

"Just until you fall in love with me," she says seriously.

Love? "I don't do love, baby."

She slowly backs away smiling. "Oh, but you will and it'll be with me," she says with a wink.

Fuck Me.

OOoOOooOOo I liked ZZ and Storm in book 1!Now bring on book 2

To all potential readers- The Breakneck books have lots of violence, sex, drugs, etc... they are biker books. If you don’t deal well with all that, this probably isn’t the book for you. Me on the other hand...I just love me some biker books! The grittier the better! I enjoyed Seize Me (book one), but for me, this one was a little better than the first!

Bloodshed… Secrets… Betrayal… Trauma… Welcome back to the Breakneck world.

She did it again! It's no secret that I love MC books and Crystal does one hell of a job of sucking me into their world and making me fall in love!!

What I'm about to say is IMHO. This is NOT bullying an author. Bullying an author, in my definition, is saying that he/she shouldn't write, that he/she should keep his/her day job, that whoever read his/her books are idiots. I've been called a bully to this author. At first I was baffled. Then I found it hilarious. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I've said it in my Seize Me review. If it worked for you, Yay. It just didn't work for me. Now, I'm not looking sympathy or for anyone to come t ...more

She has been in love with ZZ ever since Breakneck saved her and her girls from a life of strippin’ and whorin,’ finally making something of herself; managing the affairs at Club Sated and going back to school.

*** 1 Star ***

Before I started WM, I told myself that I was not going to read it since I did not care for SM. At all. I chatted with a few peeps about it and at the end decided to give it a try. Give the author another chance. Give the story and characters another go. Hoping that maybe I will like it, even if a little bit. Again, the story has potential but it didn't do it for me. I will not be reading the rest of the series but will give the author yet another chance with anything else she writ
This crazy ass book makes me want to curse till the cows come home! SO BEWARE STRONG LANGUAGE AHEAD...

But to be honest if this review offends you then you would be better staying away from this whole series!

I won’t lie to you it isn’t pretty and Crystal Spears never promises rainbows in the sky and bunnies skipping in the fields. She does quite the opposite as both books come with WARNINGS ***which need to be taken note of.***

This book contains crude language, explicit and open drug use,

This is not a MC romance that will give you butterflies in your stomach. This is one that requires that you have thick skin. These boys love hard - but they fight even harder.

Zig Zag... oh, where do I even start. You know he is bad news when you learn that he became a dad at thirteen. I loved ZZ to pieces. I loved how he stayed hard until Storm softened him just the right amount.

Storm is trying to get her act together, she was saved from the life that she was leading under control of Snake, an

So I’m pretty shocked but I didn't really enjoy this one I loved book 1, couldn't wait for this one…

There were parts in this book I really liked but the moments where I would be confused and think WTF just happened totally blew away the parts I liked. I had absolutely no problems with the content of this book it was actually really tame to what was in book 1. It was the characters reactions to things or not reacting to things that had me just dumbfounded a bit and I think that has something to d

Withstanding Me is ZZ and Storm's story. ZZ's had a hard life. His dad was a biker, so he grew up in the life. He got a girl pregnant when he was 13. He doesn't do love. When he meets Storm, he's looking for a quick lay, but she makes it clear that

The book is action packed, but noticed some story issues not acknowledged in my initial review. I thought about changing my rating to 3 stars but decided to let the initial impression stand.

Geeze how could it all go wrong after it all went well first time round?

Now I loved book 1 and was really excited to read book 2.

According the the author she received feedback from book 1 and used it in book 2- Bad decision....

Who's idea was it to put a million different POV's in there? It just didnt was AWFUL

The story was all over the place with so many repetitions. I found myself flicking back pages to see whos obscure POV I was reading that time.

I hope Crystal Spears goes back

Withstanding Me is the second book in the Breakneck series and I thought it was going to be ZZ and Storm's story. I loved the first book in the series so my expectations for this one were high and unfortunately this was a big let down. I didn't feel this was really Storm and ZZ's story because there were so many pov's in this book. I am a huge fan of dual pov's so you can see what the characters are thinking without having a read a whole other book that is the same story but another characters p

This is the 2nd Instalment of the Breakneck series. Read my review of Book#1, Seize Me, HERE

This is a perfect example of when Authors should go with what their heart tells them to, not feel torn and never hold back… Ever!

When I opened my copy of Withstanding Me and read the note from Crystal, addressing the readers in regards to taking all advise, critiques and everything everyone had to say about 'Seize Me' on board, I was very intrigued.

4 stars because it˙s MC story...and I liked it..... maybe it˙s a little too much with the plot but I liked ZZ and his internal struggle and his "I˙m not stupid but I can˙t figure this shit out"

But most of all I like shadow and Tatiana hints that there will be breath play and so much lovelly jubbley in the next book.

This Breckneck stupid bikers are getting better ...

4 sizzling stars for “Withstanding Me”

I love a good motorcycle romantic love story. “Seize Me”, the first installment in the Breakneck series is one of my favorite MC tales. Spears introduces us to quite a cast of interesting characters….and plenty of yummy Alphas.

“Withstanding Me” had a much tamer vibe compared to the rough and tough emotions I was feeling from “Seize Me” Kidnapping, drug abuse, brutal beatings, beheadings, sodo
4.5 Knockin' Stars

Can we just skip the part where I tell you I love a good MC, bike ridin', down and dirty, rough and tumble book? That is a given, right? I love the alpha male stories and the kick ass chicks who love the alpha males. That has been firmly established. So reading Ms Spears new offering to the Dirty Talkin', Tough Guy Gods, was a no brainer. But did I like it....hell to the yes. I don't know how to do exponents on my computer. But Hell to the Power of Yes.

WARNING: If you haven't read the first book you will have no idea what is going on, and you will not enjoy this book. I really liked the first book in the Breakneck Series, Seize Me. It was gritty, gruesome, fast-paced, passionate and emotional, but this sequel failed miserably.

This book felt like all the "clinical" parts of Seize Me were compiled into one book. By that I mean that all of the scenes that felt significant were missing, and all of the crap in between is all I read. None of the sc
What I liked about this book
1. Better than book one.
2. ZZ "Mason". He was ten times better than Braxxon from book one.
3. Storm. She's a tough gal and not afraid to share her feelings from the start. She had a strong head on her shoulders.
4.All drama was quick and quickly laid to rest.
5. NO CHEATING!!!! Thank the freaking stars for that.
6. Lots of little surprises.
7. We got a lot of POV's from others in the first half of the book. Which was nice as it made me like other characters a bit more.

Recommends it for: everyone

And when a man tells you that you deserve all the love in the world, and it’s a man like ZZ, you tend to believe him. And I do. I believe I deserve it all. My problem is that I want that man to be ZZ I want all the love in the world to come from him. I want to be a part of his heart.

This was a great read! It needs to be read by y'all.

Such a good read.

The best parts were when Braxxon and Winter...

And when ZZ told the story of he and Tatiana

I cannot wait for more Breakneck.

Its just that good.

I enjoyed this one way better than the first book. I found ZZ and Storm to be interesting and fun characters.

There are still some issues with the way the story was handled. There were way too many POVs. Almost every person had a POV. Unnecessary and didn't add any value. With that being said, the author set up the other stories in the series.

She did it again... Crystal wrote a bomb biker book. This woman, I swear, she writes one of the best MC's books. Seize Me, literally seized me, and I fell in love with Braxx, Winter and the rest of the MC family instantly. But with ZZ's book, she really hit it off. It was soooo good, way more than just a page turner. I laughed so hard; ZZ he's one hell of a guy and his cocky dirty mouth was awesome to read.
He's just as handsome as Braxx and just as frightening as him.
