Maxwell “Gunner” Wesson is the loose cannon of the Brazen Bulls MC. A loss taken when he was a boy left a hole inside him, full of chaos and noise, and only pain and destruction can quiet the tempest. Full of courage and fiercely loyal, he has the Bulls at his back, even when his outbursts threaten to damage the club.
But the club president’s patience is wearing thin. Gun’s lack of control has put the Bulls on the front lines of a brewing war, right in the heart of Tulsa.
Leah Campbell is a small-town girl, living the life her mother walked away from. She takes care of her father, the town minister, and keeps his secrets, ensuring that he keeps his place as the moral and spiritual center of their community. But Leah has secrets of her own, and she’s faltering under the weight of all the things she cannot say, and all the things she must be and do to keep the truth at bay. She’s filled the hole her mother made, but it’s left her empty.
When two such damaged souls, full of secrets and empty of hope, come together, they will either save each other or tear everything apart.
Note: explicit sex and violence.
Good golly Miss Molly, Twist was just the kind of book I was in the mood to read. Max ‘Gunner’ Wesson and Leah ‘The Preacher’s Daughter’ Campbell on the surface were two of the most unlikely people to get into a relationship. Dig a little deeper and these two lost souls had more in common than even they realised.
This is a classic story of a good girl leading a very different life to what the people close to her imagined. Well, all except her neighbour, Ashley, who was her partner in crime so to speak. When Leah and her friend Ashley went out to party, they thought they were partying hard. In my mind they were, but when they hit the Brazen Bulls MC party, they realised they had no idea what partying hard really meant!
While partying, Leah got down and dirty with Max while both of them were flying high on party drugs at a Rave in their local town. With Gunner not living local these days, neither of them recognised the other. They both had one of the best experiences of their lives.
Kind of a shame to put a figure like that on a good girl.
If there was a God, he had a fucked-up sense of humor.
When they meet again, Leah is mortified but Gunner didn’t notice she was the same girl from the Rave. He notices her alright but not as having met her in the biblical sense before. She gets to witness Gunner out of control, furious and lashing out at his family. Everyone else sees a man doing wrong but Leah feels his pain and her curiousity in him deepens.
Life hasn’t gone easy on either Leah or Gunner and their experiences allow them to connect in a unique way. Together though, they bonded and their souls were content.
“Okay. Willa—I’m…I’m a little scared.” Willa laughed and took Zach from her.
“Get used to that feeling, hon. That’s life with a Bull.”
Ah, but this is an MC and nothing is simple nor is life easy. So expect a few ups and downs as the lovebirds find their way. I loved the way that the Brazen Bulls’ President, Delaney looked out for Gunner, watching out for him. Gunner was a man with a short fuse and when it went off it cost the club dearly.
Leah had a few quirky mannerisms that normally would have ticked me off, but they had the opposite effect of entertaining me when they occurred. For a younger person, she was a wise young woman. She made a few epic mistakes along the way but with Gunner she had her head screwed on tight.
Ms. Fanetti always brings out the emotion in her stories and explores issues raised in a sensitive way throughout the story. At the same time, I relished in the descriptive tones allowing me to experience the exhilaration of a bike ride right through to the desperate pain of losing the connection with loved ones. I thoroughly enjoyed Twist and can’t wait to read the next book in the Brazen Bulls MC series!
