Reaper is an enforcer for the motorcycle club Torpedo Ink.
The club is his family; all are children of the sick, brutal
education they were given at the Russian training facility
they survived. He will do anything to protect them because
he must save them from going down the same JUDGMENT ROAD
that he finds himself on.
Anya Rafferty finds a job in an MC bar that gives her the
beginning of a new life away from a past she is hiding from.
Too bad, Reaper seems to have it in for her, even though she
has tried to stay out of everyone's way. Little does she
know that for once in too many years, Reaper is starting to
feel emotions and the gorgeous bartender is the reason. An
enforcer can't feel and do his job, but soon he finds
himself head over heels and just might have to choose
between her and the family who has always been by his side.
JUDGMENT ROAD is a dark, serious read that hits on horrors
that should never touch an adult let alone children. The
past is something no would should dwell on but what was done
to these men and women when they were children cannot be
forgotten. They are all living and learning to adjust to
being free, dealing with society for as one of the women
stated they were all taught to have sex in every way
imaginable, and kill in as many ways, but there were no
lessons on relationships. This, of course, does lead to a
number of embarrassing moments for those dealing with this
There are a few lighter moments especially those dealing
with Czar (the president of the club, Viktor Prakenskii) and
the club members climbing in windows disturbing him and his
wife, Blythe, who can't seem to get them to knock on doors.
I liked the way they do try to talk things out to understand
what should be done, but sometimes the blind leads the blind
right into some major trouble. In this case, Reaper seeks
help with a problem and almost loses Anya. I think it igood
that Anya sees Reaper for the man he is, and not the man his
upbringing tried to make him be, and in Anya, Reaper sees
hope something he has only had with his "family." Their
romance is rocky as the members of the club try to help with
their questionable social skills.
Needless to say, the Torpedoes have a lot to deal with but
besides their past the plan to deal with making sure such
horrors don't happen to others if they can help it. There
are other clubs who come to them for help. Another group
called the Ghost Club have been kidnapping women to get
those clubs to work for them. Brutalizing women and children
is something the Torpedoes will not allow to continue.
If you enjoy dark, serious storylines, but one that has
plenty of steamy and sweet, funny, and the much needed
righteous feel of good kicking butt then JUDGMENT ROAD is a
