Title:  Alternate
Author: Lili St. Germain
Publication Date: September 7th 2015

Plot:  My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club, 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 Ross 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? 

**This bundle contains all books in the Gypsy Brothers series plus a bonus exclusive novella.**

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

The Gypsy Brothers series was first and foremost a tale of indictment, revenge, and redemption. While there is an element of romance in it, it is the least of the whole point of this serial in its entirety.

Those of you who have read the entire series, and even Dornan’s story in Cartel which is a prelude to everything, will understand the general proximity of where Juliette, the book’s main true heroine, gains her motive to commit since risky and heinous undertakings.

alternate 1

An eye for an eye. And with hell having scathed this particular woman’s scorn, she will stop at nothing to take out Dornan, his sons, and burn everything that means dear to him into the ground.

alternate 2

There is only one catch, Jase….Dornan’s youngest son and Juliette’s first love, who may or may not, ruin her plans altogether....

So now back to ‘Alternate.’ ‘Alternate’ is what we do and don’t see and into the perspectives of Dornan, Elliott, and Jase up until now. Ohoho, this is going to be good!

I can tell you, as a reader, I felt many conflicting feelings and emotions and was even shocked by some of the revelations that were divulged in it. I can’t give you a play by play as to what you can really expect to get from this, as this is a novella (much like all of the Gypsy Brothers installments), and by doing so would instill spoilers.

What I can tell you, is that it is worth the picking up. You really get into the heads of each characters, their alternating thought processes and backgrounds, as well as, from the moment they meet Juliette and what they go through there on after.

I highly recommend this special treat to all of you hardcore GB fans and can guarantee that you will not be disappointed!!

It has everything from grit, blood, vengeance, grief, and sacrifice! Don’t miss out on this, ladies!!

My Rating:

Confucius said, “Before embarking upon a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”
I planned to dig seven.

Sometimes I don’t think about it for hours at a time. Sometimes, a whole day will pass, and it’ll be there, under the surface, burning my insides with the brutality of its truth. My truth.
And I’ll get home from my dead-end job in this dead-end fucking town in the asshole of Nebraska, and I’ll have almost made it through a whole day of not thinking about it, about my father and Dornan Ross and his sons. 
But then I’ll do something without thinking, like undress to go to bed, or slide under the covers of my bed. And I’ll see the marks they branded on my right hip – seven horizontal lines, each stacked on top of each other, made by casting the blunt edge of a butcher’s knife into fire and then pressing it into my flesh. A line for Dornan Ross and a line for each of his six older sons. Notches on a bedpost. Scarred for a lifetime so that I can never forget. Some are thicker than others, some short and others long, but each one a devastating reminder of everything they took from me that night.
Even if I stay in my stale clothes to avoid seeing my scars, I still can’t escape them. I never sleep well. I toss and turn, fitful and drenched in sweat, awakening from nightmares where they find me and turn the knife to the sharp side. Where they don’t just brand me – they cut me until I am dead, so I won’t talk to the police. I know things, see.  I know things that the police don’t, about purchased alibis and body disposal spots, about too many girls who went missing and too many men who kept too many secrets.
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.
Tomorrow is different. Tomorrow is my twenty-first birthday, the day I gain access to my secret inheritance. The several hundred thousand that my father managed to hide before Dornan framed him for the murder of a policeman and his family, a crime that Dornan and his eldest son committed as retribution for a drug bust that almost wiped the club out. It might be dirty money – my father wasn’t above money laundering and drug manufacturing – but it was his money. Dornan managed to seize control of the rest when he enacted his devastating betrayal.
Tomorrow is truly my birthday, for I will become another person. Today my name is Juliette Portland, but tomorrow I will wake up as someone else entirely.
Someone who will bring Dornan Ross and the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club to their knees.
