Review: Zero Hour by Lili St. Germain

Publication Date:  11/24/2015
Series: Gypsy Brothers #8
Rating:  5 Stars

Official Blur: 

Juliette Portland had all of those things. Her purpose was simple: Seduce. Deceive. Kill. Avenge. Once Dornan Ross and his sons were dead, her future was supposed to be clear. Her life was finally going to begin. And love... Against all the odds, she had the love of a boy she never thought she'd see again.

Everything should have gone according to plan. Everything should have been easy.

Of course, life has a way of f*****g with even the most meticulous of plans, and calling in owed debts can have the most severe consequences. Thanks to Juliette's diabolical retribution, the Il Sangue Cartel has lost it’s Kingpin, but not for long. There’s always someone in the wings, ready to step onstage and seize power. The Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club might be reeling from the deaths of their President and his six patch-wearing sons, but they’ve come back swinging.

Two deadly enemies, hundreds of bloodthirsty members, both sides eager to punish those that would try to topple them.

Two survivors, a man and a woman, forced to flee in the night.

For Juliette, vengeance is a hollow victory.

It never, ever ends

The flames of incomplete vengeance are licking at her heels, and it’s only a matter of time before the Il Sangue cartel and the Gypsy Brothers catch her in their grip and crush her.

Unless she crushes them first.

You know that book series that always sticks in the back of your mind long after the series concludes while you wonder what happened after the words “the end” were typed? What about those characters that ripped your heart out while making you fall in love with them all the same time? Have you ever wondered what happened after the HEA comes? Do they really live HEA? Well. Lili St. Germain has given us the unexpected and yet long awaited epic conclusion to the Gypsy Brothers series.   As the last book of the main series came to close, all the evil in Julz and Jase’s life had been extinguished, but when you’ve been on the run or working towards killing the main oppressive force in your life for so long,  the dead don’t always stay dead.  Zero Hour add just a little bit more to the story as you see how these two characters struggle to fight to their deaths or to finally be free. As screwed up as their pasts have been,  their newly found relationship bliss was never going to be easy and we as readers are finally given that little piece of insight to how bad it was for Jase during his missing years.   Zero Hour brings us back full circle to where it all begin and fills in the cracks for one last hell of a thrill ride.  Batten down your hearts and the hatches ladies,  Julz and Jase on the devil clipping at their heels and it will be a race to the finish to see who is still standing when the smoke clears.   With this book, Germain has finally delivered the killing blow to the series, but it couldn’t have ended on a more perfect note.  Now the only problem that I face is that I want more Julz and Jase.
