REVIEW: Butcher by Leann Ashers

A compulsive read..

This is a compulsive and epic MC romantic read …with an original and riveting plot and a fascinating landscape filled with varied and complex individuals….each character from the MC family is worthy of his or her own story..

The focus is on Shaylin the MC princess who is also a badass and Butcher the club hard man and enforcer who is putty in the hands of the woman he has his sights on..he is awesome as her avenging hero willing to take down anyone who threatens her safety with all the essential alpha qualities and if that isn’t enough he is an ex Navy Seal *swoon* …but Shaylin is equally magnificent she is no shrinking violet and well able to sort out her own problems….a match made in heaven or maybe hell….either way there is plenty of laughter, respect and fire in their relationship…

The story is mostly told from Shaylin’s point of view but every so often there is a short section devoted to Butcher and these small snippets provide an insight into his feelings and a window into the events in his past that drive his actions in the present day…..There are some really note worthy moments in this book but one of my favourites is the first encounter Shaylin has with Butcher and the subsequent afternoon they spend in each others company…it is comical and magical.

This book is a gripping fast paced thriller with some really sweet romantic moments and of course some thoroughly hot and steamy ones too…I have not read any other books by this author but I intend to rectify that oversight immediately….This book was reviewed for Summer’s Eve Reads..

SNEAK PEEK: Butcher by Leann Ashers

and rises on his elbows, which are on either side of my face. “Made for me,” he repeats. He slowly moves inside me and my toes curl. “I love you, my Shay.”

“I love my Butcher.”

He grins and presses his forehead against mine. I grip the back of his neck, holding him to me. We come together as one, staring deep into each other’s eyes.

“I have nightmares that this is a dream,” Butcher whispers and my heart breaks a little at his words. His dark eyes look deep into mine, his face scarred up and beautiful.

“It’s real. I am real.” I take his hand and press it to my heart. “This is yours.”

“I don’t deserve you, my Shay. But I am selfish and will take you any way I can.”

I shake my head furiously and grip his face between my hands. “I am the one who doesn’t deserve you, Butcher.” I kiss him deeply before placing my face in the crook of his neck. I feel Butcher relax into me and I close my eyes.
