♕ KAT'S REVIEW ♕ ARC ♕ THE IRON TIARA by Beth Flynn

THE IRON TIARA by Beth Flynn
TITLE: THE IRON TIARA
AUTHOR: Beth Flynn
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLICATION: July 18th, 2017
Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman are from two completely different worlds.

Anthony's the leader of a motorcycle gang that terrorizes Florida’s West Coast. As a child, he ran away from his family and the Cherokee Indian Reservation to enter a life of crime. As an adult, he leads a multifaceted life managing his two businesses—his legitimate landscaping venture, and his loan shark and underworld dealings. Driven by anger and betrayal, Anthony begins the hunt for Christy’s father, Van Chapman, after he runs out on a loan.

Christy’s privileged life is not as it seems. She has kept painful family secrets and hidden some of her own. She’s determined to find out the truth and expose Van, but her search delivers her right into Anthony Bear’s hands, adding kidnapping to his list of crimes.

Their worlds are as contrasting as the color of their skin. The only thing they seem to have in common is their mutual disdain for Van Chapman…and each other.

They couldn’t be more wrong.

This review is going to be as spoiler free as I can possibly get it, just prepare yourself for one crazy crazy ride, Anthony is like no biker I know most men prefer guns and knifes this man has a machete which is an extension of him. Blood and gore, murder and mayhem, all go hand in hand harmoniously. 

THE IRON TIARA: is a Nine Minutes standalone spin off novel by ‘Beth Flynn

Like a crazy woman on crack I was overly excited when I saw Beth Flynn mention that she was going to do a spin-off of the Nine Minutes series and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it, Nine Minutes and the others that followed were my all time favourites. 

This starts off in the year 1978 and progresses through the years to present time

In 1978 - Anthony Bear owner of Native Touch Landscape and Design had recently learned from his book keeper that a client of his was in arrears of the sum of seventy thousand dollars and had skipped town.

This flits from the past to the present frequently and effortlessly, we get in depth knowledge of Anthony’s family history, where he came from, how he’d made his money. We’re also thrown back in time to Grizz and Kit and all those feels where these two are concerned are as strong as they were in the 9 minutes trilogy. 

Anthony and Christy meet in an unconventional way, both are from different walks of life, she walks the straight and narrow and he breaks the law left right and center. He's the leader of a notorious motorcycle gang and she fits in having high tea in a posh establishment. As different as chalk and cheese, even down to the colour of their skin.

This ticked every single box I could've prayed to the book gods to cover, the dark, the grit, the love, the all consuming emotional turmoil this took on my emotions, the love I felt for these characters, reconnecting with old love #Grizz *sighs* Bliss, pure utter bliss. I was in the zone, my happy place reading this, life was put on hold, the phone went unanswered, the house looks like I've let the farm animals have a party, I breathed, lived, inhaled this book and most of all I loved every single second, minute, hours I spent within the novel.
