I'm not sure why I keep reading Christine Feehan. Every once in a while I'm OKAY with one of the stories, but most of the time her heroes are just abusive assholes. I also don't like the trope she uses in almost every one of her books that most women are bitches and hoes, and only the heroine is a shining beacon of womanly goodness in the world.

So that said, I was not a fan of this one for 3 particular scenes, so spoiler alert.

Why is it that when I absolutely love a book and just want to jump and shout for everyone to read it that I have such a hard time doing a review for it??? I spent my whole Sunday sucked into the world of Torpedo Ink and did not want to leave it!

Christine Feehan wove such a compelling tale about this group of people, the horrors they have overcome and how they have triumphed. I'm such a sucker for that kind of thing. I like to see people who have been beaten down to a point that would break most

This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceI received this book for free from Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Judgment Road is a sensational edgy and raw romance that brings together two tortured souls who find redemption and a love they never imagined....

What a story and so intense!! Of course, this is Christine Feehan and I am never surprised with what books she puts out, they are AL
This was a DNF for me,when I first heard that CF was venturing into the world of bikers,I was like....yessss please...but then I started reading and reading,to say some parts of this book were disturbing ,and the subject matter were way beyond my comfort level was putting it mildly.I am a very visual reader and I am praying some sections of this book does not visit me in my dreams tonight :(.....this series is going to be a pass for me.Too dark of a read for my personal tastes in reading.

I was amazed to discover this was my first book by this author. I was convinced I’d read not only one but several of her books. But I checked (that’s how sure I was) and no this was my first.

So this is a dark read. The past this group share is truly horrific. I liked the fact that they’ve survived as a unit. They’re united (for the most part) and lethal. Parts of this book were riveting, I just couldn’t put it down.

It was darker in places than I’m happy with. But then I’ve found good MC books ha
Reaper is the enforcer for the Torpedo Ink MC. He is aloof, separated from the rest by the violence that the specialized school inflicted on him. Afraid to be close to anyone other than president and leader, Reaper is distressed by his attraction to the new bar tender Anya.

Anya is on the run and keeping her secrets close. She doesn’t fit in the MC world, but it is the perfect place to hide. She is intrigued by Reaper but he’s tried to get her fired and she doesn’t understand why…besides she need

This is a dark book with lots of triggers: mental and physical abuse, rape, torture, pedophilia and very descriptive violence. Some parts are hard to read/get through.

Torpedo Ink MC is comprised of Russian immigrants who escaped from their “home.” They were stolen as toddlers after their parents were murdered, raised together and tortured into becoming assassins for their government. Horrific things were done to these kids to remove all emotion from them. The MC is compromised of 15 men and 2 w

Judgment Road by Christine Feehan is the first in Torpedo Ink series and also my first book by this author (I've found a new one I'm looking forward to reading more from 👍)
It's a biker book with a difference ok so there's plenty of hot steamy naughtiness 😉 but there's a dark and heartbreaking side too.
This book shows us a little bit about how they became a biker family (the dam right heartbreaking bit) and how they all have / use their special abilities and the loyalty they have for each other.

I tried this because I've liked Feehan's paranormal books in the past, but this book didn't work for me at all. The two main characters were unlikable, as well as the MC secondary characters. They way Reaper spoke to and treated Anya disgusted me, and at one point in particular made my blood boil. I tried to overlook his attitude and behavior because I thought there would be some character growth, but I couldn't bring myself to care if there would be after the tipping point. I'm sure many wi

This was a tough one to rate for me because I liked 98% of the book but there were a few things that bugged the shit out of me. First let me say that I did really enjoy most of the book. Feehan + Motorcycle club? What's not to like? I was a little surprised she started with Reaper simply because from what we saw in Bound Together he seemed like the most messed up member of the club but once I was introduced to Anya and saw how they were together I realized that it had to start with R
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Judgment Road is the first book in a new series and it is gritty and very dark, far more than I expected. Right off the back I have to say that if you are prone to triggers I would be very careful reading this story. There are some tough subjects in this story and if you aren't comfortable with it then don't. For me it was a very powerful and emotional dark story for a band of people forming the Torpedo Ink MC, and how they are transitioning into regular life. Reaper is the enforcer of the group

Sinfully desirable, sexy yet heartfelt. Judgment Road by Christine Feehan is a great read for those who love a little danger, and an intriguing story. Judgment Road is the first book in the Torpedo Ink series. A series I am now greatly anticipating.

Torpedo Ink, is an outlaw motorcycle club who have set up shop near a beach town. They are not your typical MC club, they are so much more. Not only do they each have certain talents, but their bond

Thoughts and Plot

I'm settling for 3 stars on this book because while I enjoyed this book, there were a few places that I wasn't okay with what was going on and how it was resolved. I also wasn't rushing to finish this one. Sometimes I also felt like it was a never ending romance...and it totally leaves itself wide open for continuations with other club members. In fact, I think there is a blatant set up going on in this book

Love, family, is worth the struggle…

It is always a red banner day when a new Christine Feehan title hits my kindle! I know I’m going to be diving into all the things including intriguing characters and an emotional story I can sink my teeth - and heart - into. And my heart was totally invested in Reaper and Anya’s story, a roller coaster ride of discovery and acceptance. Of course, when you are dealing with this group of men and women, including cross-over characters from the Sea Haven/Sisters o

Judgement Road was a very emotional and poignant reading experience. The story has all the elements of romance that I enjoy: relatable her and heroine, action, adventure, beautiful setting near the ocean. Being the setting around a motorcycle club, Judgment Road is not a lightweight read. Most of the main and secondary characters have suffered unspeakable losses and abuse. The world of MC is dark and suffering interspersed with broken people trying to cobble together a family and community. It m ...more

"He needed the wind in his face and the devil at his back."

Judgment Road was my introduction to author Christine Feehan. All I can say is... mind blown. I'm guessing she hasn't been on my radar because I don't read paranormal. But I am addicted to MC Romance so when I saw her latest cover with a biker on it she got my attention. So, I gave her a chance and it was the best decision ever. I can't even put into words how much I enjoyed this book, it was that good.

3.5 stars - maybe 4?

I had an interesting time with this book. For starters - I was in a mood. I started 7 books in a day (made it to 22% on one) and gave up on all of them until I started this one. Also, contemporaries, with their jangly writing, all tell and no show, and one-dimensional characters, make me itchy. However, I found something that I didn't know I was looking for when I started this book.

This is a strong 4+ MC book. Torpedo Ink is a club with a very different background and purpose, which allowed for many of the unusual aspects of their life.

The story starts out as a normal "day in the life", but the tensions and conflicts emerge quickly yet with subtlety. The traditional "brotherhood" is extra-strong with this group, with good reason. Anya is an outsider who wins over the hearts of the club members, although the process is quite painful for everyone.

Dangerous, Deadly and Dirty…That’s Judgment Road. Torpedo Ink is not just a club but a family made up of kids who had lived through the unspeakable only to learn various skills and became highly efficient assassins. Reaper was the deadliest of them all and had a coldness to him that everyone knew could be unleashed at any time. Anya was a woman on the run and is hiding in the Torpedo Ink bar as a bartender and this is where Reaper notices her and feels a pull he has never felt before. Reaper als ...more

Surprisingly, I liked this.

Hero was def celibate. He did not have sex with anyone as soon as he escaped his former assassin school so he has been celibate for a looong time. The heroine is the first woman that he has been attracted to.
Heroine was also celibate

Hero was sooo into the heroine, even with all his emotional baggage and PTSD and the author made me believe in his need for the heroine. The heroine also had a chance to run away but she’s so into the Hero too.

I got the ARC of this book from netgalley for an honest review . This was my first MC book. I love the sisters series but was disappointed by the last book because I felt it was more a opening to this series than closing of its own series. That could be the reason I didn't really like this book .
I feel like Ms Feehan's heroines are becoming weaker in all her series. I did not like Anya at all, she was too weak no backbone at all . Not sure how I felt about Reaper , I know he went thru a lot gro

Holy moly - what a crazy awesome intense book Judgment Road was. I'm a sucker for a good MC romance book. To be "good" for me there has to be a perfect balance between hard and soft - darkness and light. I love a conflicted alpha hero who isn't always right and who does things that we might consider bad or extreme - but he does them for the right reasons. And I love when that hero finds someone to love, and he gives his whole heart over to it. I love a motorcycle club that is more of a family th ...more

Christine Feehan is an author that constantly appears on my radar, and I’ve been meaning to read one of her books for a long time. As I have a weakness for motorcycle clubs – all the angst and drama that surrounds them – I decided to give Judgment Road a read.

From the start, I had trouble with this one. The writing was incredibly repetitive. Within the same pages – in some cases paragraphs – and it could have easily been cut with a good editor. For an author that is so popular and with so many b

I didn’t enjoy reading about the flashbacks of severe childhood trauma so I’m lowering my rating. The flashbacks were written well.

Unlike most CF’s this h had a backbone. lol I wanted her to have more of a backbone concerning a certain scene in ch 9.
