Cash (The Henchmen MC #2) by Jessica Gadziala

Thursday, June 16

My rating:
5 Stars…

What I loved:

My life has been about three things- brotherhood, good times, and women. Easy. Nothing complicated. That was until Willow Swift came barging back into my life, face bloodied, banging at the gates of The Henchmen compound calling in a favor owed. Now a marker is a marker and I had to make good, but if there was one woman in the world I didn't need in my life, it was the hard-as-stone, hot-as-sin Willow Swift and whatever mysterious ghosts from her past that were haunting her present.


My life has been nothing but two things: hard and complicated. The last person I wanted in my business was the notorious love-em and leave-em Cash, but I needed help and he was the only one I could lean on without worrying about him finding out about my past. But I was starting to wonder if maybe he was his own kind of dangerous bent on tearing down some things I had long since learned were not possible for me- like falling for a guy I could not, ever, let see the real me.



Without a doubt, 5 glorious stars! Jessica Gadziala is the author I never knew I always wanted!

What I loved:
- Lo is such a strong leading woman. I loved her character progression, the way her story unfolded, the way she carried herself, conducted herself - just adored her. JG paints a strong, feisty, independent woman without letting her come across as bitchy, manipulative or too stubborn for her own good.
- Cash. What a ladies man! I loved that he loved and respected women - he enjoyed everything about female company, and wasn't a neanderthal... though I do love me some neanderthal! I just loved how unique JG made her characters.
- Internal dialogue. These characters don't all talk the same, act the same, use the same mannerisms. Each is their own person, and their thoughts weren't interchangeable. Having read as many romances as I now have, I've come to appreciate that characters are often lacking their own personalities. Not here!
- Wolf. Reign. Repo. Summer. Janie. I want to know all of these characters stories. I feel a series binge read coming on!
- The plot arc. It was dramatic without being predictable. It stood out. It made sense. The way the characters reacted to situations made sense.
- Parts of the book were damned funny. Laugh out loud hilarious, actually. That was a welcome break in what could be a little bit dark at times.

What I didn’t love:
- There were a few grammar and structure issues in the actual writing, but I was loving the book so much that I gave zero shits about that. It was nothing that your brain doesn't correct for itself anyway. And I'll be honest, in this genre, and an era of self publishing, I've seen a whole lot worse.

My first book from this author - so no, I have not read the series in order - and I loved it like a chocolate fish. Totally up there in my million star ratings! If the rest of this series contains these kind of strong, unique characters and twisty story lines, I'm hooked.
