An outlaw motorcycle club sets up shop next door to Sea Haven in the dangerously sexy new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

As the enforcer of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, Reaper lives for riding and fighting. He's a stone-cold killer who turns his wrath on those who deserve it. Feelings are a weakness he can't afford--until a gorgeous bartender gets under his skin...

Near Sea Haven, the small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life. And she's desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper's imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat.

Anya's touch is everything Reaper doesn't want--and it brands him to the bone. But when her secrets catch up to her, Reaper will have to choose between Anya and his club--his heart and his soul.

Judgment Road is a sensational edgy and raw romance that brings together two tortured souls who find redemption and a love they never imagined….

What a story and so intense!! Of course, this is Christine Feehan and I am never surprised with what books she puts out, they are ALWAYS intense, but this book had a different feel to it and I loved everything about this book. I was curious before grabbing this one, how Feehan would be able to handle a biker romance and SUPERB!! That is all, this book exceeded my expectations and more. I just have so much love for this author, and this book is evidence of how talented she is. Now Judgment Road is an extension of two previous series and I love the connection between the two series and this charming coastal town that I would love to visit in real life.

The key players in this amazing romance are:

  • Reaper, a man that is tortured by the sins of his past, who has had to commit acts to save the family he adopted as his own and to protect himself and defend the men and women he would give his life for. Reaper is a fighter, and a protector but is rough around the edges.

A beautiful, troubled man, forged by the fires of hell, ravaged by monsters.

  • Anya is on the run, her life is in danger and she is in hiding. She grew up on the streets, went to bartender school to make a good living and is dang good at what she does. But she is independent and doesn’t ask help from anyone. She is strong and resilient and courageous.

So this book was simply so emotional and what a ride this story turned out to be!!! I just couldn’t put this book down and I wouldn’t ever want to either. What I was really intrigued by in this story was the way that these characters pull together and the family of “torpedo ink” and the close bond they have for each other.

‘I can’t. I need a man whose first loyalty is to me. I want him fierce with his protection of me and our children. With you, the club will always come first, and I understand. I do. I just can’t live with that

The story begins when Anya starts working as a bartender in the Torpedo Ink bar. She keeps to herself and works hard. But there is one man among the Torpedo Ink brothers that scares her….Reaper. She thinks that he hates her especially when he tries to get her fired. Reaper has always had the job of protecting his brothers especially their leader and would do anything for Czar and his wife Blythe. He knows that Anya is hiding something big, and he doesn’t trust her or her secrets. But there is a danger surrounding them, and when a neighboring club comes to them for help in rescuing their leader’s wife who has been kidnapped and is probably being raped and tortured, they need information. Information that is needed to rescue the innocent woman and Anya has that information. There has been a great connection between Reaper and Anya, but their relationship is fragile. And Reaper makes a decision that may make him lose her forever…..

He needed her brightness. He needed to see himself the way she did. He could be that man because she believed he was that man

WHAT  A STORY that this turned out to be and I was blown away by this book and I never wanted it to end. Like seriously, Christine Feehan….this book could have been 600 pages or longer and I wouldn’t want it to end. There was such a riveting feel to this book and these characters just tugged at my heartstrings in the most poignant of ways. I will say that this is edgier, now if you are used to Christine Feehan’s style of writing than you will love this book. However, if you are new to her and aren’t a fan of darker themes, this book probably won’t be for you. Because it does deal with some tough subjects and it’s just not the type of story that everyone would love. It’s not light or fluffy, its edgy and raw but so riveting and I can’t share enough my love for this story.

My heart just broke so much for Reaper and Anya, these two just need love and affection so badly and I just wanted to weep for these two and their situation. But what was most remarkable about this book was seeing their relationship blossom so beautifully and the ways that they learn to fight for each other. It’s not easy for either of them, but they never give up on each other, no matter how terrible it gets. I was swept away by their bond, mostly because you see their pasts and how much they have suffered and seeing them trying to build something new and experience building a relationship which neither of them have ever done before so of course, they will make mistakes. But they work through these mistakes and only become stronger for it.

This is a story that will break you, it will wreak havoc on your emotions, but it will also deliver the most precious, tender and poignant romance you could ever pick up!! A TRUE JEWEL!!

    Feehan is one of my catch up authors for this year. I really enjoy her books and hate that I got behind. Nice review! I now can’t wait to read it.

  2. Cathy Jackson

  4. Quinn's Book Nook

    I’ve heard great things about Christine Feehan, but I’ve never read any of her books. There are a few that are on my TBR, though. I’m so glad you enjoyed this one so much. I really struggle with motorcycle club stories, though, so I might start somewhere else.

  5. Jenea Whittington

    Yes, please!!! This sounds sooo good and I think it would definitely be something I would enjoy too.

  6. Blame Chocolate

    This sounds like one of those romances that will tear your heart out… When two broken people get together it’s always so emotional to witness their progress in coming into terms with who they are, what they want, and how to trust again. The fact that there are bikers, darker themes and tons of intense moments just sounds like the cherry on top of the cake.
    Amazing review <3

  7. The Book Disciple

  8. RO

    What can we not say about the great Christine Feehan?She’s a brilliant writer and still going strong. I mean when I read The Dark Prince, I went out and started grabbing all of her books because she dares to write abut tortured people, and their eventual healing. And the love and feels are just so dang powerful. I agree, I never want her books to end, and can’t wait to delve into this new Torpedo Ink Series. Thanks so much for your wonderful review and Happy Friday! Hugs…RO
