~Review: Withstanding Me (Breakneck #2) by Crystal Spears~

While the chaos and bloodshed have slowed for a short period, life is never quiet in the world of Breakneck. The club is taking time to regroup from internal betrayal and the changing of the guard in a rival group.

Zig Zag became a father at the age of thirteen. While raising a child has never been easy, now his eighteen year old daughter Tatiana makes his life downright hard. She has caught the eye of Travis, the new President of the rival MC Gunners, but all she really wants is Shadow, the newest addition to the Breakneck family. When Shadow’s rejection sends Tatiana running from the only family, home, and safety she’s ever known, ZZ is crazy with worry. The distraction caused by Tatiana’s disappearance could prove to be Zig Zag’s downfall.

If that isn’t enough, ZZ finds himself rampantly attracted to the one and only Storm. She’s beautiful, quick and witty. Their friendship is the one thing that keeps him from growing crazy, and Storm stands by ZZ through all the turmoil. Zig Zag is not accustomed to hearing the word no, so Storm’s constant withstanding just draws him in deeper. Their friendship is one thing keeping him from going crazy, until one night…

The club is regrouping and rebuilding from the mayhem known as the Russian Mafia. A hit is ordered on Tatiana, Storm, Winter, and Piper.

Tatiana’s egg donor reveals secrets that a thirteen year old Zig Zag was too young to understand.

Braxxon is out of reach while he helps Greg Cage deal with some dirty business.

Bloodshed… Secrets… Betrayal… Trauma… Welcome back to the Breakneck world.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

The drama, violence and heartbreak continues in the second book of the Breakneck Series, Withstanding Me by Author Crystal Spears.  The Breakneck MC is under attack from the Russian Mafia, Winter and Brax are getting married and Zig Zag "ZZ" (Mason Dillan) has finally met his match in Storm (Apple Martini).  This is their story.

ZZ is known for his sexy love 'em and leave 'em lifestyle.  He doesn't commit and lives life on the edge.  He grew up in club life.  At the young age of 13 he became a father, and assumed responsibility for her care.  His daughter, Tatiana, knows how to push his buttons and continues to drive him crazy.

Storm wants more than a one night stand, more than sex, she's ready to settle down and has decided not to settle for anything less.  As ZZ pursues her she continues to stick by her commitment to not be another notch in his belt.  She cares deeply for him and the attraction continues to grow.  This heroine is a kick a$$ and ask questions later kind of gal.  I love how strong and loyal to her new family she is.

ZZ and Storm's path to find love is filled with heartache, despair, and anguish.  When an attempt is made on the ladies of Breakneck, the club rallies together to protect their own from those that want to destroy them.  Time after time ZZ approaches Storm and she continues to reject him until Brax and Angel’s wedding.

The events that occur grab and enthrall you as you turn each page in this book.  This book is well written and the characters mature as the saga unfolds.  Greg Cage from Harper Sloan's Corps Security series makes an appearance giving a new perspective on his character.  The author is brilliant in the way the plot continues to build; allowing the reader's imagination to create this sexy, hot MC world.  I love this series and look forward to reading the next book in this series!

Hero: 4 stars
Heroine:  4.5 stars
Plot:  4.5 stars
Steam Level: 4 stars
Cliffhanger:  No

Would I recommend this book: Yes.  This is an excellent continuation and addition to the series! Relationships are solidified and the bad guys continue in their quest for domination.   I cannot wait for Shadow's story. His introduction to the club in the first book leaves questions that need to be answered. The buildup of his background in this book creates more questions that make you want to know more about ‘WHO’ he really is.

Would I recommend this author: Yes.  Crystal Spear's knows how to write and she does it extremely well.  She writes gritty, raw MC romances that allow the reader to escape from reality for a while and immerse themselves into the world of motorcycle clubs.
