really liked it

Have you read the Deception Series by these two authors? Yes? No? If you like your books dark, the kind of dark that takes you on a depraved journey and makes you question your sanity, then you need to read that series. At this point, you might be asking yourself "Why is she talking about that series?" Well, I'm talking about it because that was the series that made me fall in love with this writing-duo. They sure know their way around dark romances, so when I saw they were back together again with an MC Romance with a darkish side, I knew I had to read it.

Taking Avery started out with a punch, one that had me glued to my kindle. I felt like if I stop reading, everyone would die. Seriously, those first chapters were intense. Then something happened, and the story dragged out a little bit. But after a while, the story picked up and... well, my nails didn't survive the journey.

While I enjoyed the book, I was kinda let down. Let me explain, the story itself was a really good one. It had been some time since I'd read an MC Book that really hooked me in, and Taking Avery did that. The authors gave me dark and gritty, but it was some characters' actions what kept me from going crazy about the story.

"I will be their princess if that's what they want. they have just let the wolf into the hen house, and I'm hungry for revenge."

Yeah, sure...

That quote had my adrenaline pumping. I was all over Avery waiting for her to take her revenge. But that didn't happen. Or if it did happen, please someone point me to the right way because I didn't see it. Oh, and she was feisty, but not when she had to be. For example, take what happened to Jenna... I was so mad. It was not fair, and I felt like Avery didn't do anything to help her. Sure, she had her own shit to deal with but c'mon, she was your friend.

Then we have Brenner...

I wanted to skin him alive with a rusty knife or something like that. I mean, there were no consequences for him after all the fuckery he did. I get it, he's going to play a big role in the next book, but still, nothing. I was so fucking pissed.

Sorry, but I had to rant about it.


"We may not have chosen each other, but there is no denying there's chemistry our bodies want to explore."

And explore they did.

The chemistry between the main characters was scorching hot, and my panties know it. Slade was not your typical biker. Yeah, he had a dark, alpha side but still, he was different. And I liked that about him. Now, Avery... well, I think you already know how I felt about her.

A storyline that got me sucked in right from the start, a plot that at some point left me speechless and an ending that left me wanting, no-needing more. The bottom line is that if you love a good darkish, twisty MC Romance, Taking Avery will not disappoint. There's no doubt in my mind I'll be reading the next book.
