Review~ Out of Time by Beth Flynn

They thought with his execution it would all be over. They were wrong.

5 this is a twisted fucking speechless story corsets!

I waited so long for this book! I could not wait to get my paws on this one. It's part 2 of Nine Minutes, which was in my top 2 reads of last year. I must admit I had anticipated the same type of read as Nine Minutes, such as action packed with twists and turns.  Ya know, one of those books that you just can't put down, that's constantly throwing you for a loop. Well, it wasn't quite that. Don't get me wrong, because I still loved it.  I just want you all to know that it isn't the same type of feel as it's predecessor Nine Minutes.  

BUT... don't give up yet... Out of Time answers a ton of questions that are left unanswered at the end of Nine Minutes. You know, all the ones that left you saying, "What the FUCK?!" With that being said. I was glad to read this feeling like I was finally getting the inside scoop on what the fuck was really going on.  It bounces back and forth and can be a bit confusing at times. I felt liked I needed to keep notes. Beth Flynn is a genius for being able to write such an amazing story and keep track of who knows what and what was told to whom. All the secrets, lies, cover-ups, and dirt. My kinda book!  It started getting really good towards the end, and just when I thought I had it all figured out.. WACK! It was like getting the day lights knocked out of me with a brick. Then only a few seconds later... BAM! Kicked right in the stomach. Again, I had some answers  and started putting the puzzle together, but the ending left me saying, "WHAT THE FUCK?!" all over again. I'm not kidding! I am still speechless. Like. I mean.. I just can't. So, if you don't like that feeling of what the fuck or the feeling of a cliffy, then I suggest you wait until next year for part 3. Until then I'll be waiting with you. I can't wait to see what Beth can come up with for part 3!

The leader of one of South Florida’s most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they’ve been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top.   

In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida’s Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason “Grizz” Talbot and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal. 

 Not even Grizz’s inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government’s most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he’d once abducted and later made his wife. 

 Once Grizz’s obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she’d first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair have spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they’d once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he’s finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the fa├žade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can’t seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bonds that hold them together. 

 And with Grizz finally put to death, now Ginny has learned secrets so dark, so evil she’s not even sure she can go on. 

 Will these secrets tear their love to pieces? And how far will Grizz go to protect what he still considers his, even from beyond the grave?
