WARNING*** This novella is intended for those 18+ of age and contains strong language, sexual content, adult situations and a direct continuation of it's prequel 'A Lil' Less Lost'. Do fairytale's always have a happily ever after? Jay and Lil's had just found the love they once shared and foolishly lost. But, a horrific turn events threatens to end it forever. Jay must race against time to save his ol' lady Lil's and their baby before tragedy strikes. In this sequel we learn more about Jay, the deep love he has for his soulmate, and just how far he is willing to go to protect her. This novella is approx. 50,500 words and does not contain a cliffhanger ending like it's prequel. However, an epic love story like Lil's and Jay cannot possibly be wrapped up in two tidy little novella's... now can it?
Tara is a thirtysomething newbie author from Long Island, New York. She's a voracious reader, a passionate writer and and obsessive junk T.V. aficionado. When she's not doing one of those three things she is attempting to garden, hanging with her hubby or partaking in some retail therapy. She enjoys connecting with her readers and is having a blast entering into this new world of publishing.
This is the first novella in the series and I thought I would review it as well as the second. So here goes!
So this has very little to do with A Lil' Less Broken but it was helpful while reading it. There's a vocabulary list of some of the slang used in the novella and that was really helpful. If you've watched Sons of Anarchy, you should already know a few of the terms but a couple were unfamiliar and it was great to have that there and know what they were talking about.
A Lil' Less Broken starts things up right from the beginning. Right from the first page, there seemed to be lots of action. Whether that was emotional or physical was the question. There was lots going on to keep yourself immersed in the book and yet not enough that you felt like it was an overload. There was a good balance that worked.
There were questions asked, but they were usually quickly answered. It didn't take long to find out information about the different characters as well. You were given what you needed to know at the proper time.
Lil was a strong female character who didn't take anybody's...you know what I mean. She stood up for herself and didn't let anyone walk all over her including Jay. That was great, it meant lots of sparks between the two and yet you could still tell they loved each other. That was amazing.
Then there was Jay. Alpha male if there ever was one. He gave orders(not that Lil really followed them) and yet he wasn't mean or terrible when she didn't follow them. Sure for some of the book he was a bit of a prick, for lack of better terms but he also did what he could to show Lil that he really did love her and she ran for nothing.
There was an occasional awkwardly phrased sentence but not very many and besides what author is perfect?
A Lil' Less Broken is a good start to the Kingsmen series, and I can't wait to see even more(especially with the cliffhanger we were left with!
Now to the main event! A Lil' Less Lost released today and I advise you to go and buy it if you really like Alpha Males and Motorcycle club books.
In this novella we get the perspective of Jay, which is great, because we get to know him better and learn just how far he's willing to go for Lil.
Oh, and something else I forgot to mention in the previous review is that in the course of these novellas there is a switching between past and present. So at the same time you're dealing with all of these things going on in the book in the present, you're also getting the past, and how they came to be together. I thought that that was a nice touch and kept the reader from going crazy wondering what was happening and with the action.
This book definitely makes you think about things and adds some mystery to the series in general. Towards the end, we get the perspective of two different characters and I have to admit color me intrigued. It's definitely leaving breadcrumbs for the next book in the series and I personally cannot wait.
I literally sat down and read A Lil' Less Lost in one sitting, that's how much I enjoyed this book. You can now purchase A Lil' Less Lost and I strongly suggest you do if you're into Alpha Males and MC's.
