OUT FROM UNDER
“I have always been strong, independent and wanted a life that belonged to me. It’s the very reason why I chose to attend Stanford because it is away from the small-town life that seems more Twin Peaks than charming. Secrets are a dangerous commodity and Pine Bluff has them in spades. So do my parents, and the dirtiest secret of all is my brother, Trey. Sergeant at Arms for the Demon’s Bastards, a criminal, a felon, and perhaps the catalyst for the tragedy that destroyed my life just days before I was supposed to leave for college.
“Now I am on the run because my life is in danger and I could be next. I don’t want to live my whole life looking over my shoulder and I don’t want to live my life shrouded in despair. Anxiety has me in a death grip, unable to let go. I pop Xanax to get through the day and were it not for my famous cousin, I would probably be dead already.
“My name is Trista Lennon, and I am tired of being afraid.”
Linx Carter never thought he could help anyone when he could barely help himself. He is hanging on by a thread after a tough, six-month Gods of Rock Tour with his band, Winter’s Regret, and Scarlet Fever. He has a greedy ex-wife, two sons and all he wants is to put the pieces of his life back together.
Linx knows there is something special about Trista from the moment they meet. She’s wounded, in desperate need of a friend yet feminine, feisty and no one’s charity case. She is the strongest woman he has ever known.
Through their friendship, they will find the strength to heal themselves and love one another but a feud between two gangs is brewing. Trista is caught in the crossfire, and by proxy, so is Linx. What they discover might not only cost them the love they have for one another but their lives too.
Due to mature subject matter, explicit language and adult situations, this novel is recommended for those over the age of 17.
I enjoyed Linx’s and Trista’s story. Out From Under had a strong, fresh, modern voice. I was fascinated by the culture of the Biker Clubs and that of Linx’s world as a Rock Star…that Ms. Chardou created in the book; it was fascinating and in-depth. I enjoyed the evolution of Linx’s and Trista’s story, how they each had to break through the other’s outer emotional shell, in order to find a love that was long-lasting. They were two people who were very scarred emotionally, broken in places, but were made better once they found the other. But individually, the characters had a strong voice…Trista was feisty, and very mature for someone her age, after so much tragedy, I was impressed with her resilience . I liked Linx because under that Rock Star persona, he seemed a very nice guy, who took care of his responsibilities…and in a world where it was not required of him, he showed compassion, respect for others and kindness…and was also very sexy!
I recommend for any who enjoy contemporary romance with a touch of adventure, or mystery. Also recommend for ages 17 years or older.
