Julie Reviews Out of Time by Beth Flynn

They thought with his execution it would all be over.
They were wrong.

The leader of one of South Florida’s most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they’ve been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top.

In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida’s Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason “Grizz” Talbot, the terrifying leader of Satan’s Army motorcycle gang, and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal.

Not even Grizz’s inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government’s most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he’d once abducted and later made his wife.

Once Grizz’s obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she’d first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair have spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they’d once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he’s finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the façade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can’t seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bonds that hold them together.

And with Grizz finally put to death, now Ginny has learned secrets so dark, so evil she’s not even sure she can go on.

Will these secrets tear their love to pieces? And how far will Grizz go to protect what he still considers his, even from beyond the grave?

Review

A-FREAKING-MAZING is one word I would use to describe this book!!!  It’s been a few days since I read it but I had to let everything sink in before I could attempt to write a review.  All I can say is that Beth Flynn blew me away in this book.  It’s so much more than I could have expected.

After reading Nine Minutes last year, I knew I wanted to read this sequel as soon as possible and I definitely wasn’t disappointed.  Beth brought out so many emotions in this book that I had one heck of a hangover from it.  There was action, suspense, many twists along the way, and one hell of a ride!!

When Nine Minutes ended, I had so many questions.  Is Grizz dead?  Will Grunt and Ginny get their happily ever after?  And many more.

As their story started, we know that Ginny just found out about Grizz being Grunt’s dad.  Needless to say, she was pissed and hurt.  I was definitely feeling bad for her but as I saw into the story, you can feel Grunt’s love for her and as he opens up to her, I fell more in love with him than ever!  So many of my friends are Team Grizz, but I have always been Team Grunt and I definitely still am.

As Ginny and Grunt try to work through the deception, their marriage, and where they go from there, they receive a package that answers more questions but also poses several more.  You soon find out that everyone you thought you knew in Nine Minutes were definitely not who they seemed.  

As I got more into the story, I was left with a ‘What the hell did I just read?”  Several times, I would backtrack to read something to make sure that was what I was reading and then I was shocked…in a good way and bad.  I was angry, mad, and shed a few tears along the way.  Beth brought so many feelings to the surface of this book.  To me, it takes one talented writer to be able to come up with such suspense, twists and turns, along with beautiful romance brought into the mix.  This is, by far, my best book of the year and if I could give more than 5 stars I definitely would.  So, 5 stars for me!  I don’t know how I will make it until book 3 comes out.  Beautiful and amazing job, Beth!
