The story began with Seven Sons....


My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect. 

Including my innocence. 

When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old. 

Before my father died, Dornan and his sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer. 

I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I'm out for revenge. 

But I didn't expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club. 

I didn't expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it. 
Now, I'm faced with an impossible choice - Jase, or avenging my fathers death? 


Review

HOLY FREAKING HELL! OH.MY.GOD. CHILLS! This book gave me chills! This is one gritty, intense and totally EPIC story that is the start of what I am sure will be one hell of a series.  Seven Sons is an mc romance novella that you will not want to miss out on.

Confucius said, "Before embarking upon a journey of revenge, dig two graves." I plan to dig seven. 

Juliette lost not only her innocence but also her entire life and loved ones at the young age of fifteen. This poor girl suffered through a VERY traumatic experience, one we learn more about throughout the book. Now, six years later and after some serious physical changes, Juliette is known as Sammi and she is out for blood.

Revenge is all she lives for, all she can think about. That is until, Jase, the youngest son of Dornan Ross, steals her attention and so much more. Dornan Ross is the current president of the Gypsy Brothers MC. He is the man responsible for Juliette's fathers death and also her demise. He and his sons ruined her happiness, along with her soul.

I used to wish every day and every night to forget about my fathers murderer and what he did to us. Not anymore. Now I want to remember every tiny detail so that I can exact my revenge. 


I must admit, some scenes had me cringing at first and I didn't always feel it was believable. The trauma and difficult life that we learn Juliette has lived through would be enough to send anyone into a very destructive state, because of this I sometimes found myself not understanding how it would be possible to let herself get involved with Dornan and his sons the way she did. I would have definitely thought her past would affect her a hell of a lot more than it seemed too. She seems like such a badass. I admire her strength and I'm excited to see where Julie's(Sammi's) journey leads us.

So, Dornan Ross. There are many words I could use to describe this man but to be honest, I think completely fucking crazy just about covers it. I am going to say though, while the man gives me shivers and creeps me out a little, he is super hot. Like, REALLY, REALLY smokin' hot. He's all alpha, and I can't say I hate him. I hate what he did to Julie, he sure is a crazy motherfucker but he intrigues me a lot. 

There are many other characters in this book that make it as amazing as it is, Jase and Elliot are definitely two men I can't wait to learn more about. Yes this book is short, but its length does not affect the epicness of the story in any way. I would love for it to have been longer but my gosh, it was mind-blowing as is! The shortness of it added to the angst and craziness of it all and left me wanting more straight away. Overall, the quality of writing is powerful, this is a story that grips you from the beginning and sucks you in completely. While there were some areas of the book that bothered me, I believe once you have read the books that follow most of those issues are cleared up. 

Also, this is a serial so there is a cliffhanger, be warned. Normally I'm not a huge fan of reading these books until the series is complete, but I simply could not NOT read this one. With such a compelling story line and captivating characters it was not one to be missed and I'm certainly not the most patient person so I was not waiting for this seven part series to finish. If you enjoy the mc genre with a side of fucked up and twisted then you will enjoy Seven Sons By Lili St. Germain. 

Finally, after six long years, I will have my revenge.

Then there were Six Brothers.......

I have lied. 


I have cheated. 
I have given my body and my life to the man who destroyed my family and left me for dead. 


I have killed, I have sinned, and worst of all, I have enjoyed the misery of others. 

I have licked the salty tears of a father mourning his firstborn son, and nothing has ever tasted so sweet. 

I have died, and I have been resurrected, a phoenix from the ashes. 

I know I’m going to hell. I’ll burn in the fiery pits alongside Dornan and his sons for the things I’ve done, and for the things I’m about to do. 

But I don’t care. It will be worth every lick of the devil's flames on my guilty flesh to destroy Dornan Ross. 

`One down. Six to go.





Review


Wow! Another overwhelming and outrageous instalment from Lili St. Germain. Six Brothers, book two in the Gypsy Brothers serial did NOT disappoint. It was brutal and crazy intense once again like Seven Sons. I LOVE this series, If you have not yet read the first book then get on it now! You will not regret it. This is not a stand alone novel, Seven Sons should be read first before reading Six Brothers.

I'm not doing this because I'm strong, I'm doing this because I'm scared of the monster in my head, the monster in my bed, the monster who killed my father, the monster who destroyed me.

OH JULZ, I think I began to figure her out in this book. The woman is also a total badass and I am loving her hard. I felt as though I learnt more about Juliette this time around and I could understand her feelings, emotions and actions a lot better than I did at first. She amazes me with what she does, she has emotional strength of epic proportions. 

Six Brothers picks up where Seven Sons left off, so as we know, Dornan is mourning the loss of one of his sons. 'Sammi' is comforting him and he and the other gypsy brothers are none the wiser when it comes to Sammi's identity. Juliette is revelling in the effect she is having on Dornan, and once again the sick son of a bitch shows her what a sick fuck he can be. 

Jase, Jase and Julz. I want them together! The connection is there, Jase just has no idea how deep that connection actually runs. However, as the story progresses, I feel as though he is coming closer to figuring Sammi out. She can only hide parts of her true self for so long, and Jase isn't a stupid man, and he has never forgotten about Julz. I do hope that he finds out soon who she is, I believe he will help her sort her way out of this giant messy retribution. 

This cliffhanger left me craving more instantly!!!! Thank you Lili for this harsh, raw and brilliantly written book. And thank you for creating such a fearless and gusty heroine like Juliette. I am crazy about this series, it is definitely becoming one of my favourites.

Five Miles.....

My father taught me the importance of an eye for an eye—a cardinal rule, ingrained in every club member. 

A life for a life. 

Seven lives in payment for an unimaginable list of sins. 
People might wonder why I’m doing this. If this vengeance is borne from some noble cause, that I’m trying to prevent others from suffering at the hands of Dornan Ross and his sons. 

But I’m no vigilante. 


I’m doing it for me. I’m doing it because I want to. Because the look on Maxi and Chad’s faces when I killed them was a balm to my soul. 

This is the fate they have earned. The penance for their crimes. 

Two down, five to go. 

Time to send some of these brothers off with a bang. 







Review
It's almost like I am dying...little by little; piece by piece. Burnt out, shattered, breaking apart under the weight of my lies. - and I still have five to go.

WOW. Another profoundly intensified read from Miss Lili St. Germain. Five Miles, the third book in the Gypsy Brothers novella series picks up where Six Brothers finished and boy, what freakin' book. This series and its characters are fucked up, raw and completely AMAZING. The story, holy hell. I don't know how Lili came up with this but damn the woman is proving to be totally freaking brilliant!!!!!! I want in her head! 

In Five Miles, all hell is breaking lose. Everyone is on edge after the death of another Ross son and everyone is suspecting one another. Dornan is of course his usual crazy fucking self but now even more so. He wants to avenge his sons' death, he just doesn't realise he is blaming the wrong people. We learn a little more about the MC in this instalment, I really love it when we learn something new about the pasts of our favourite characters like Elliot, Dornan, Jase and Julz. 

So while shit is hitting the fan, Julz is plotting her next move. She seems to be falling apart a little in this one. I am seeing the weaker side to her, and it is heartbreaking. I absolutely adore Juliette so I was very sad to read these moment from her. I do believe Jase and Elliot are contributing to her state of mind considerably. My reasons for this are a few things that came up in Five Miles. Once you read it, which you should, you will see what I mean. I don't want to give too much away but OH MY FREAKING GOD, I can't strongly recommend this book or this series any more than I have to people when talking about it. It is crazy epic and FULL of angst. Get on this now people! If you love erotic, dark stories with some seriously smoking hot bikers than you will love the Gyspy Brothers books.

Four Score ....

Love and hate aren’t all that different.

Two sides of the same coin, the yin and the yang.

Once upon a time, Jason Ross loved me. And now that he's in danger of figuring out what I've done, I see the love and the hate warring within him.

I see the way he looks at me.

The way he wonders how I could do the things I’ve done.

I hear it in the way he begs me to stop, to leave his father and this life and never look back.

But there’s only one way I’m leaving LA. 





Review
OHMYGOD!!!! That ending! WOW. Four Score was completely mind-blowing and maybe my very favourite of the Gypsy Brothers series. This was beyond fantastic. It was completely fucking brilliant in every way and I know I have said this before in my reviews for this series but damn I love this series hard!! Four Score is not a stand alone novel as it follows on from where the last instalment ended. This epic novella series should most definitely be read in order. Trust me, you will NOT want to miss out on one moment of any of these books! 

OH JASE, I adore this man. He is the exception when it comes to the Ross men, and in Four Score I absolutely fell head over heels for him. This book is an enthralling tale that continues the story of Juliette's revenge on Dornan Ross and his remaining living sons. It indulges more in the emotional connection between Jase and Julz and I think this is why I loved this instalment so very much. It was utterly captivating and the writing was once again consumed me and I found myself totally immersed in the Gypsy Brothers MC world. 

Juliette is unsure how to deal with Jase's requests, can Julz leave the hate and betrayal behind and move forward with Jase? Retribution is all she lives for, thrives on. She is torn, she will not move on until Dornan and his sons have paid for their crimes. Is there a possibility for a loving, happy future with the only Ross man she has ever loved? 

"What I want is to throw you up against this wall and erase any trace of him ever touching you. What I want is for you to be mine, and mine only." - Jase

My heart broke for Jase, read this book and you'll understand why. I don't want to give too much away, but let it be known, this was yet another EPIC and emotional read from Lili St. Germain. 

Now, I know this may not go down well, but am I only one that gets hot for Dornan? The man is a crazy motherfucker, thats a given, but he intrigues me. I want to know why he is the way he is, find out how he came to be the monster that haunts so many lives of those around him. Plus, he's hot as hell and all alpha male dominant. I do enjoy some moments with this dirty talking biker. 

If you have enjoyed reading the previous books in this serial you will definitely find Four Score all consuming and crazy intense.

And then there was Three Years.....

Every day for six years, I used to pray that I would find my way back to the boy I loved. 

Until finally, one day, I did. 

But that’s the funny thing about life. Nothing good ever lasts, not for me, anyway. You think you’re the one with the power, at least I did, but then I got careless. One tiny mistake, and now I am powerless to stop what comes next. 


People think money equals power, but all the money in my bank account, the dirty notes laundered clean that my father left for me, are useless. 

Money does not equal power. Power is held by the one with the knife in his hand, tracing shallow cuts into your skin. 

Power is held by the one who owns you. 

I had power once. 


Now, I have nothing.



Review

Two words can describe this book. FUCKED. UP. Jesus, what a roller coaster ride. This book ruined me. My heart and mind is one big emotional mess caused by Julz and Dornan and their crazy fucking ways. 

Three Years blew me away and it honestly is by far the most emotional read of the entire series. The depth and emotional state of mind of Juliette is bewildering. I think I read this book so fast because I was that anxious about what I was actually reading that I completely forgot to highlight my favourite lines. I was so engrossed in the story and my mind was baffled by what I was seeing on the pages in front of me. 

Juliette pulled at my heart strings, I wanted to cry for her, hold her, reassure her. This woman left her mark on my soul and I will never ever forget Julz. She is one of my all time favourite heroines. Right now, after reading this, I think she's pretty much lost her fucking mind. I would too in that situation. This book changed things for me, it changed where I see the story heading. Do I believe Julz will get her very own happily ever after? Now, I'm not quite sure. She is dead inside, it will take one hell of a long time and a very strong, dedicated man to bring this girl back to the land of the living. With everything she has been through, her HEA is probably not what we expect. I don't even fully believe Juliette wants to live happily with any man after her attack of revenge. 

Now I am aware this is going to sound pretty insane, but I think I actually want to see Dornan and Julz fall in love. I want him to adore her, love her, cherish her. It would be an even more perfect revenge for Julz. Crazy you say? Yeah, I can see why you might think that. As I said, I now see this story heading in a different direction to what I have always thought. 

Okay, it's safe to say I have a huge crush on Dornan. I don't think anything more needs to be said there. 

I am still reeling from this book and trying to comprehend in my head that this shit actually happened. I'm sorry I am not giving away much of Three Years for you here. READ. THIS. NOW!
Lili, I need the next book pronto!!! YOU. ARE. KILLING. ME. WITH. THIS. SERIES!

Excerpt 

(Seven Sons)
I make a strangled sobbing sound, but nothing much comes out of my throat except a dried-up, pathetic scream.
Dornan pulls me from the shower, wraps me in a towel and walks me to his bed, where he sits me down.
“Do you understand how much I care about you now?” Dornan asks with a throat full of gravel. His hands are all over me, feverish, and I don’t fight back when he presses me down onto the bed and unbuckles his belt.
I just lay there, in shock, his lips at my throat and his hands roving every inch of my shell-shocked body.
“Do you know why I did that?” he breathes in my ear as he grips my hips and slides inside me.
My breath hitches in my throat as he begins to thrust into me, and I feel a single tear roll down the side of my face.
“Because I’m yours,” I whisper into the darkness.
