Ex-con and ruthless biker, Jonas Brooks is stunned when he encounters the selfless angel who saved his life six years ago. With his massive size and alarming tattoos, Jonas terrifies people on sight. But the beautiful, kind, and intelligent Lucy Renquest sees beyond his frightening exterior the moment she lays eyes on him.

Despite being an outcast with an extremely high IQ, Lucy's confidence and courage propels her to success. Finding the good in people is her biggest strength—and greatest weakness. When Jonas cleverly deceives her into accompanying him to a secluded cabin in the alligator-infested Florida Everglades, she's beyond furious—until her anger fades and their passion ignites.

When Jonas and Lucy return to their normal lives, he discovers that she’s in danger. Now, it's up to Jonas to save the woman who saved him.

Can a criminal with a tarnished soul protect his angel and find the truth before it's too late?
MY REVIEW
'TARNISHED SOUL' 
Is the fourth full length book in Beth Flynn's 'Nine Minutes Spin-Off' series. But can easily be read as a stand-alone. This is Jonas Brooks and Lucy Renquest's story.

Going into this I was worried I wouldn't keep up as I hadn't read the book before this but I'm happy that it can be read as a complete stand-alone, there are some carry-over characters and story-line but it's not at all confusing and is easy to catch up.

Straight away I'm pulled under this authors spell again and captivated with this storyline like I was with the very first book. The feels came rushing at me throughout, the giggles, and the angst between them with their two and fro banter kept me on my toes.

These two met years beforehand, he came in staggering into the ER and she was the one who helped him. Years later he still couldn't get his angel out of his mind.

When he finally encounters her again, instead of going about things the normal way one would go to get to know someone he takes matters into his own hands and kidnaps her for one whole month ❝ Forced imprisonment, the new dating trend.❞ But she had a few tricks up her sleeve coming his way.

She was the complete opposite to what he'd normally be attracted to. And she'd never been attracted to his type before.

🏍️He was a hardened criminal who lived life by the beat of his own drum, no one told him what to do. He'd started stealing at the age of eleven, got into drugs by the age of thirteen and killed his first victim when he was fifteen. 🏍️

πŸ‘“She was going to school with the hope one day of being able to cure diseases that robbed people of their lives. And liked puzzle mind games which eased her anxiety and stress levels. πŸ‘“

Don't be underestimated by Lucy, she took me by surprise more than once and for me she stole the show, she was quirky and feisty, book-smart and quick-witted and was the perfect heroine to steal our bikers heart.

Theirs isn't an easy journey they have many obstacles to overcome, but together they can overcome anything.

The two were are different as chalk and cheese but get them together and they just worked. I loved jumping into this world again. I loved the glimpses of past characters that we'd not seen for awhile, this slow burn quickly like previous books got its hooks into me yet again.
