“Seven Sons” by Lili Saint Germain

 photo SevenSonsCoverDRAFT_zps2368ce1a.jpgMy 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?

*NOTE: I used strong language in this review. Was it needed? No.  But this book is written so well and brings out such strong feelings…sometimes it’s the only way to express things.  If strong language offends you, I recommend you stop reading now because you won’t enjoy my review and you won’t like the book.

This was an Amazon Verified Purchase.  I loved it so much I gifted it to two people, one of those was Tamera McIntosh.  Read her Review of Seven Sons HERE.

The Review

When I seen this cover and then read the blurb, I knew I had to buy it.  It’s dark, sexy, revenge filled and even though it’s a story about innocence lost, it still holds a hint of innocence somehow in that mix.  This is the first book I’ve read written by Lili Saint Germain, hell it’s the first time I’ve ever heard of her!  But I’m so glad I took that chance.

Juliette- AKA Sammi, was 15 yrs old when Dornan Ross decided to use her as a form of revenge against her father.  He and his 6 sons, took it upon themselves to rape and beat her until she was a breath away from dying, before Dornan took her to the hospital where he would be viewed as a hero who saved her. Later when everyone else was busy, he’d come back to finish what he started.

Jase- The seventh son, who stood up against his father and six brothers and refused to join in. He tried to save her as they raped her.  They held him and forced him to watch.  Jase and Juliette had actually been friends, childhood sweethearts, grown up together since their fathers were in the same Motorcycle Club. All of that changed the second Dornan decided he wanted to be the leader.  All of that changed the night Juliette Portland “died” in the hospital and the night she was saved by a cop.

Elliot- The cop who risked his life to save Juliette and fake her death.  He even gave up his career, to make sure she stayed “dead” to Dornan and his sons, including Jase. The cop who tried to heal a broken girl, who fell in love with her, who finally had to walk away because he knew he couldn’t save her from herself.

Now, Juliette is back for revenge. She has a new name, new face and she’s not that innocent little girl. She’s a woman on a mission to kill and if that means fucking Dornan Ross to get close to him so she can pick them off one by one, then she’ll do it. If that means looking Jase in the eyes and lying to him about who she is and pretending she never loved him, that she doesn’t have feelings for him still….then she’ll do it.  If that means breaking Elliot’s heart again, she’ll do it.

Will she?
Can She?
Would she?

My final thoughts:  This book is far from what you would expect. It’s more complex. You are not only reading what Juliette went through, you’re her. You feel her emotions. The sick fucked up way she responds to Dornan, the way she hates him and can’t wait to destroy him before killing him.  The girl you still see when she’s with Jase, the night of her rape, the brutality of what she’ll now go through with willingly to continue her mission.

I’ve read many reviews that say the one thing they have issues with was how Dornan becomes so infatuated with her so quickly…that it’s unrealistic. You have to understand…Dornan thinks he’s invincible, his sons are invincible…he thinks he’s untouchable for fucks sake!! That NOBODY would dare fuck with him, let alone some petite young girl.  He has 7 sons who will protect him. He’s also an aging horn dog who has a 21yr old girl who willing to fuck him.  She’s his wet dream come true!! Why the hell wouldn’t he become obsessed with her? He’s a sick bastard with a God complex!!

And then her mother!! Let’s just say I seriously wanted to kill that bitch.

After everything Dornan has done…you damn straight she’s going to exact her revenge and nothing is going to stop her.  But the oldest son, Chad, who was the first one to rape her and steal her innocence..he suspects something. Will she get caught or will she maintain her disguise? Jase is also a suspicious. Does she dare tell him who she is? She can’t take that chance of him betraying her. Can she? Or will Jase be the first one who needs to go? Will he be the first who dies by her hand?

How far IS Juliette willing to go?  Find out! Read this book! You’ll love it! I will warn you, this IS a novella series. 102 pages. It also has a “cliffhanger” but again, it’s a soft one…and honestly, it’s to be expected. You can’t really think she’ll wrap all this up in one book. But seriously, the cliffhanger isn’t that bad. Hell I personally don’t view it as a cliffhanger.  It’s just part of the procedure of a series. But no worries, you won’t have to wait long for next one. It will be coming out in FEBRUARY!!!!
