I loved 'Nine Minutes'. So, when I saw that Beth Flynn had published a spin-off, I was all over it. No way was I going to miss anything remotely related to Grizz and Ginny!

'The Iron Tiara' is the story of Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman. If you've read 'Nine Minutes', you'll remember Anthony as the leader of the "rival" biker gang on Florida's west coast and Grizz's best friend. This book shows a softer side to the intimidating biker.

With each book Beth Flynn releases, I love her more and more. Her story telling abilities blow me away. The Iron Tiara was fierce, unpredictable, unique, emotional, and gritty.

While reading The Nine Minutes trilogy, I couldn't help but be curious of Grizz's friend, Anthony Bear. When I heard we were getting his story,

This review is going to be as spoiler free as I can possibly get it, just prepare yourself for one crazy crazy ride, Anthony is like no biker I know most men prefer guns and knifes this man has a machete which is an extension of him. Blood and gore, murder and mayhem, all go hand in hand harmoniously.

For one more time Beth Flynn delivers a beautiful and unique story.The writing was fantastic and the pacing incredible that once you start it you can't put it down,only when you finish it and you wish there were more.Because this world was fantastic and I love that we could see again Ginny and Grizz! I really don't want to get into the plot itself,you just need to know that it was compelling and I was intrigued to see what will happen next.

Anthony and Christy are unique characters.I loved them both,Christy is one of the strongest heroines I have ever read and Antony is a swoon worthy hero.I really enjoy the way this story developed with the dual Pov.I find it brilliant and compelling.

If you loved Beth's previous books then you are definitely adore this one.Team #Grizz and #Antony <3

Welcome to the literary world of Beth Flynn . She's a chronicler of an age old story of Love set in Floridian Gator-alley . It travels from coast to coast from the 70's to present times
She will create a mythical world for you. Place some colourful , imperfectly perfect people . She will expand their lives and environment . Make them walk through gauntlets of pain and hardships. All the while her narration will cover months, years, decades. But every word that she puts on the paper is there for a reason

I was held hostage, trapped within the confines of my Kindle, mesmerized by the world Beth Flynn created in The Iron Tiara. She has a magical way of stringing words together, delivering an epic tale filled with such dynamic and memorable characters, it’s all consuming. Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman’s journey was not what I had envisioned as the spin-off to The Nine Minutes series, (I was hoping for Mimi's story) but thrilled to have experienced it just the same. Once again, Flynn overwhelmed me with ano

Having loved the Nine Minutes trilogy and Tethered Souls I decided to read Anthony and Christy’s book. I have to read something while I wait for Slades book. That’s assuming Slade is getting a book....
This is another good read with yet another kidnapping (a definite thread runs through these) only this time Christy is taken as blackmail material against her father’s debt.
It turns out it’s her stepfather and she hates him more than Anthony does.

The Iron Tiara crowns Beth Flynn as “Queen of Plot Twists”.

If you follow me you should know by now that I’m a major Beth Flynn’s fan. Her Nine Minutes trilogy really blew me away. If you’ve never read it and are looking for a story happening in the MC world with an extraordinarily solid plot filled with twists you never saw coming JUST READ IT!

I was really excited when I learned Beth was publishing a new book. I already knew it would bstars.

DNF @55%

I’ve been DNFing more and more books lately. I have to say that some of them make me feel bad about doing so, but I just can’t help it. RL has been chaotic and I have no time to waste in a book that is not picking up my interest. I can’t seem to force myself to go further to see if the story is going to get better as I usually did before. My patience is nowhere to be seen at the moment.
So, here I go. Another one for my pile.
I just don’t care enough to keep going to see

I loved the spinoff and background story of Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman. Beth Flynn's weaving storylines from Nine Minutes to theirs was beautifully done. The book was intense, at times dark and the plot masterfully executed. Christy's past history is one for the books and a story I'll enjoy rereading again and again!

I love this authors writing skills. She not only tells a good story but she gives us a rollercoaster of emotions. The characters were so amazingly well written. A tough crimal who is not scared to love . AnthouBear is hardass but so goooooood at loving his woman. Her name is Christy. These two fall hard for each other. The love emotions they go through. The angst they put each other through. A must read.

The Iron Tiara by Beth Flynn is so much more than I could ever imagine.

Flynn took Anthony & Christy's story and blew all my expectations out of the water. You'll find yourself completely captivated by the storyline that is filled with adventure, mayhem, love, revenge, redemption, and forgiveness.

I was so proud to see Flynn present her readers with such a strong heroine. Yes Christy has demons from her past, and she's facing so many obstacles that it could crush her. B

In fact, I do not know how to describe the feelings after reading the story. Anthony and Christy are different like day and night, but on the other hand they are the same. The story is cruel and brutal but still a love story. The author once again proved that she is a master in the MC world, her style of writing is unique that pulls you and where the goal justifies actions.

How I felt when I found out Beth Flynn has a new book coming out




This was a great read, and brought back so many memories of Grizz, Kit and the gang.
I have never read a series that affected me as much as the Nine Minutes Series did, and to get the bonus of Anthony Bear's story, was just the icing on the cake!
I loved the flash back parts where we got to revisit at the motel, and refresh our memories, with the parts from the Nine Minutes Series that were relevant to this story. Ms Flynn has mixed the two together perfectly, and this could be read as a stand alone if you by any chance haven't read her incredible work before this book.
it was wonderful to follow Bear through good times and bad, and see him finally find his heart again, all thanks to Christy.
I'm hoping that Beth will be able to find it in her to continue writing in this manner, there are of course a couple of roads opened up within this story for her to take, so I really hope she does.

Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with the world, and giving us the opportunity to meet all your incredible characters.

"The Iron Tiara" had Beth Flynn written all over it and if you've read the "Nine Minutes" series, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. If this author is new to you, then all I can say is, buckle up peeps, because you're in for the ride of your life!!!! "The Iron Tiara" was such a fucked up love story that should never have worked.

Another exceptional read by Beth Flynn. It evolves around a character we meet in Nine Minutes, Anthony Bear. Bear is the head of a MC on the opposite coast and to most he and Grizz are enemies. Yes, Grizz are favorite character in the Nine Minutes series. Him and Kit make an appearance in this book. He is owed major money, he isn't paid so he kidnaps the daughter of man. These two people having one thing in common, the hatred of the man. There are a lot of plots twists and turns. There are times ...more

If you haven't read Beth Flynn's Nine Minutes trilogy, I really think you should before starting this book. There's quite a bit of crossover and I would classify some of those things as spoilers. I read and loved the Nine Minutes books. They're great stories that tie together beautifully. Reading these three books first will give you a better insight when you start The Iron Tiara.

This spin-off novel is well written and engaging. It holds your attention through all the twists and turn

Let me just say I LOVE LOVE LOVE Beth Flynn. For me she always delivers and this book was no different.
It's all about Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman but Grizz and Kit make appearances.
She doesn't leave you hanging and I was kept captivated wondering what was happening next.

Sadly this one wasn't for me. I love Beth and her writing. Loved all three in the Nine Minutes series. This was just too slow IMO. :(
