RELEASE BLITZ ~ The Iron Tiara by Beth Flynn @AuthorBethFlynn @jennw23

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.

The Iron Tiara is a spin-off novel from The Minutes Trilogy. It can be read as a standalone, and does not contain a cliffhanger.

I was held hostage, trapped within the confines of my Kindle, mesmerized by the world Beth Flynn created in The Iron Tiara. She has a magical way of stringing words together, delivering an epic tale filled with such dynamic and memorable characters, it’s all consuming. Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman’s journey was not what I had envisioned as the spin-off to The Nine Minutes series, (I was hoping for Mimi's story) but thrilled to have experienced it just the same. Once again, Flynn overwhelmed me with another heart stopping, savagely brutal yet emotionally touching romance so gripping; I could barely tear myself away from this read.    

Admittedly, I went back to Nine Minutes and re-familiarize myself with this couple and their situation, as they played a minor role in Grizz and Ginny’s story. Although this is a standalone novel, some characters involved and the events that unfold do run parallel to the trilogy. If you have not experienced the brutal beauty of The Nine Minutes Series, I do recommend reading to appreciate this story.

Anthony Bear fascinated me. As the story begins, I met the adorable little boy struggling to take his place within a newfound family, learning about his Native American culture from his uncle, the tribes' chief. In a blink of an eye, gone was the sweet child and in his place – a ruthless murdering loan shark capable of kidnapping the innocent daughter of one of his debtors, Christy, for ransom. Anthony lacked compassion, void of any emotions except for anger and bitterness, and had zero regards for anyone other than a handful of friends, his sister, and eventually his woman Christy.

His cruelty rivaled that of Grizz, as Anthony was truly heartless and so gruesome at times, his actions had me cringing.  Shockingly, I was drawn to this ultimate Alpha bad boy like a moth to a flame. It was his relationship with Christy (at first combative then tender, self-sacrificing, fiercely protective, and loving) that had me falling for this black-hearted anti-hero. How a man so cold was capable of such deep, pure, and devoted love astounded me. I cannot rationalize my affections for his character other than the mystical powers held within Flynn’s prose. A testament to this author’s writing talents as she had me falling in love with such a vicious dark soul.

At first glance, the princess and her captor seemed worlds apart. Bear ruling one of Florida’s most notorious criminal biker clubs as Christy came from a prominent and wealthy family. As I’ve come to learn, they are not all that different. Soul mates of sorts, they belonged together, both holding tight to their secrets and sins that slowly unraveled as the bonds of love, trust, and understanding blossomed between them. Christy surprised me, as she was nothing like Anthony (and I) judged her to be. Generous to a fault and compassionate to those she loved, Christy was the absolute opposite of the perceived spoiled little rich girl persona. But hidden behind all her feistiness lived a broken woman riddled with fears and sorrow. Learning all she survived, all the heartaches from her past, utterly shattered me. It was under Anthony’s protective and gentle care, unlike his brutal nature, which brought Christy’s character to life.

Exceptionally well-written and filled with nail biting plot twists, The Iron Tiara was an intense read. A long and descriptive story that traversed decades, I savored every moment of Anthony and Christy’s journey – from anguish and pain, to their joys and love, it was a wild ride. My only wish was to make a greater connection with their characters; to crawl inside their minds and experience their world first hand, as opposed to witnessing the story unfold from the third person point of view. Regardless, this was an amazing story and must read for fans and lovers of MC romances.
