RELEASE BLITZ REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - Bo (Bad Boys of Retribution #3) by Rie Warren

Title: Bo
Series: Bad Boys of Retribution MC
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 14, 2015

From the world of Carolina Bad Boys . . . Bo Maverick is ex-Force Recon and a force to be reckoned with.

I’m a lover, not a fighter. Yeah, right. Talk about bullshit. I’ve been fighting all my life, and I know zip about love. Frankly, I don’t want to. More than bullets whizzing past my head or the very real possibility of ending up dead, love scares the shit out of me. I’m used to guns and killing, blood and dust. 


That’s what I feel for this woman, my goddamn shrink, Veronica. Doctor Hartley digs inside my head. She asks me questions, which I never answer. I’d much rather take the smart, sexy Doc to bed, but I can’t because of our clinical relationship. 

My last Force Recon mission destroyed any semblance of humanity I had left. Those little triggers go off all the time now. When I’m asleep. When I’m awake. When the memories are raw. I bolt up, at knife point again, but there’s no enemy now. 

Just Veronica and me. 

Veronica. Doctor Hartley. I told Bo to call me Ronnie like everyone else, but he refuses. He shows up like he has a cattle prod shoved up his ass and sits through the allotted hour for his counseling session impervious to every approach. He’s powerful, forceful, explosive. He doesn’t scare me. 

My marine doesn’t speak, but his sharp gaze pierces me all the same. He watches me with all the greed of a hunger never sated, a need never fulfilled. A desire never explored. He stows his secrets safely away, but I’m patient. I’ll get to him if he doesn’t get to me first. 

And when I have him? I’ll want him forever. I know this. But I can’t. His past might be complicated, but mine is a minefield, one that will blow up in our faces before all is said and done.

Too bad. We could be so good together.

Warning: Graphic sex, graphic action, graphic language. Triple X caution.

Loved this book in the series, my favorite so far! Who doesn't love a hot-yet-broken alpha male? And Bo is definitely broken, but that would due to his last deployment to Afghanistan. Not only the loss of life of his fellow platoon members, but also being held captive and tortured by enemy forces are pretty much a guarantee you won't come back home the way you left. And Bo is not only suffering from severe PTSD, but survivor guilt as well. At least Hunter recognizes the fact that Bo needs help and that is where Dr. Veronica Hartley comes in the picture.

There is more to Veronica than meets the eye, and although Bo and V have amazing chemistry, she does what she can to keep from getting too close to Bo, knowing her time in Charleston is coming to an end, but she doesn't want to tell Bo the truth about her past and why she'll end up having to leave. Bo guesses her past has something to do with her tat, but he's floored when he learns the truth.

I loved getting to see Bo slip back in military mode when V ends up in a life or death situation. And even more impressed to see how many ride or die partners that show up to help. I was a little ticked off towards the end with Bo when it came to V flying home; it's like he didn't even discuss anything with her, he just "knew" what she was going to do. But I did like that V didn't let that crap drag on, she set him straight right away.

I do wish that we got a bit more information about the issue with V and that situation, that was pretty much glossed over. A good HEA, although I find the combination of Bo's and Kaid's business a bit hilarious; I would love to see something like that for real. Who knows, maybe that combination already exists!
