WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman are from two completely different worlds.
Anthony’s the leader of a motorcycle gang that terrorizes Florida’s West Coast. As a child, he ran away from his family and the Cherokee Indian Reservation to enter a life of crime. As an adult, he leads a multifaceted life managing his two businesses—his legitimate landscaping venture, and his loan shark and underworld dealings. Driven by anger and betrayal, Anthony begins the hunt for Christy’s father, Van Chapman, after he runs out on a loan.
Christy’s privileged life is not as it seems. She has kept painful family secrets and hidden some of her own. She’s determined to find out the truth and expose Van, but her search delivers her right into Anthony Bear’s hands, adding kidnapping to his list of crimes.
Their worlds are as contrasting as the color of their skin. The only thing they seem to have in common is their mutual disdain for Van Chapman…and each other.
They couldn’t be more wrong.
Already being a huge fan of the Nine Minutes Trilogy, I couldn’t wait to get to know Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman.
Anthony Bear is the criminal and Christy is the princess. Or so Anthony thinks. But there is way more to them then what you see on the surface.
Anthony Bear is the one that will never fall in love. He knows it and everyone around him knows it. But once he meets Christy, that changes.
Christy has grown up with money but money does not buy happiness. She has dark, deep seeded secrets of her own that she is dealing with and they make her feel unworthy of Anthony. But these two people, even though so different, are perfect together.
“Two hearts connected by strands of gold. My heart you will always hold. Safe by my side, you will always be. My forever love, you belong to me.”
This story, like the Nine Minute books, goes back and forth in time. And although there is so much information to take in, you will never get lost. I fell in love with Anthony Bear immediately and I have to tell you that I had an expectation of Anthony and their story but I got something totally different. He is there for Christy even when she doesn’t realize she needs it. And with all of the issues that Christy had, I found it to be an emotional read.
It was also nice to see Grizz and Kit again and see some of their story from Anthony and Christy’s perspective. And of course we get to know a little more about Slade and especially Christian. I can see other stories being created for some characters from this book but could Christian and Mimi’s story be next? Time will tell!
With this being a spinoff of the Nine Minutes Trilogy, I recommend you read those books before The Iron Tiara!!! All are worth the read!
