Book Review+Tour Goodies: Gypsy Brothers Series (#1 - #4) by Lili St. Germain...GIVEAWAY!!

Welcome to Venice Beach, California. Home to the Gypsy Brothers motorcycle club.

Confucius said, “Before embarking upon a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”
I planned to dig seven.

Seven Sons
(Gypsy Brothers, #1)
Release Date: January 3, 2014


My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.

Including my innocence.

When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.

Before my father died, Dornan Ross and his seven sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer.

I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I'm out for revenge.

But I didn't expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club.

I didn't expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.

Now, I'm faced with an impossible choice - Jase, or avenging my fathers death?

  “Confucius said, 'Before embarking upon a journey of revenge, dig two graves.'
I planned to dig seven.”

Juliette Portland lived for fifteen years before her "uncle", Dornan Ross, took it all away from her in the form of his seven sons. 6 years later, after thousands of dollars in plastic surgery, and a whole new life change, Julz can now be known as Sammi. And Sammi is ready to exact her revenge on the very men who took everything from her: The Seven Sons to the Prez of the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club.

I feel like Sammi jumped right into things without thinking about everything would really entail, but as scared and anxious as she is, I think she NEEDS this revenge so her life will have meaning to it. There are parts that feel a little too gruesome to bear. How she can sleep with the man who killed her father and set his sons to rape her, is beyond me. It takes a certain kind of rage within to be able to get through that.

Overall, I like this series. I'm giving it 4 STARS out of 5 STARS and I'm excited to see what comes next. I can't wait to see how Sammi is able to balance who she truly is and who people think she is.

20416579Six Brothers
(Gypsy Brothers, #2)
Release Date: February 16, 2014



I have lied.

I have cheated.

I have given my body and my life to the man who destroyed my family and left me for dead.

I have killed, I have sinned, and worst of all, I have enjoyed the misery of others.

I have licked the salty tears of a father mourning his firstborn son, and nothing has ever tasted so sweet.

I have died, and I have been resurrected, a phoenix from the ashes.

I know I’m going to hell. I’ll burn in the fiery pits alongside Dornan and his sons for the things I’ve done, and for the things I’m about to do.

But I don’t care. It will be worth every lick of the devils flames on my guilty flesh to destroy Dornan Ross.

One down, six to go.

Don't read this until you've read Seven Sons.

  "I didn't have to sell Dornan Ross my soul. He already owned it. And once I've killed him, maybe I can get it back."  -Julz

It's been a month since Sammi entered the Gyspy Brother's MC. One brother down. Five to go before Sammi is done getting her vengeance on the ones who've taken everything from her. But she never expected to see her childhood sweetheart Jase, Doran's seventh son. She never thought she would become so close to him, so now she's fighting herself every step of the way. Does she keep going? Or does she show Jase who she really is?

  “It’s true what they say—keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Only, they forgot to add: Don’t keep your enemies so close that they can strike without warning.”  -Julz

Overall, this series is really entertaining. It shows us the grim reality that can happen in MCs. It is well deserving of 4 STARS out of 5 STARS. I just can't wait to see how creative Julz gets with her next victim.

Five Miles
(Gypsy Brothers, #3)
Release Date: March 31, 2014



My father taught me the importance of an eye for an eye—a cardinal rule, ingrained in every club member.

A life for a life.

Seven lives in payment for an unimaginable list of sins.

People might wonder why I’m doing this. If this vengeance is borne from some noble cause. If I’m trying to prevent others from suffering at the hands of Dornan Ross and his sons.

But I’m no selfless vigilante.

I’m doing this for me. I’m doing it because I want to.

I’m doing this because I just want to be able to sleep at night without seeing their faces.

This is the fate they have earned. The penance for their crimes.
Time to send some of these brothers off with a bang.

Make sure you read Seven Sons and Six Brothers before reading this book.

My reaction: SOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!! OMG. This book just BROUGHT it!! Lili St. Germain just turned the tables on us!!

  "You don't hate me. But you will. It's only a matter of time."  -Juliette

Sammi/Juliette is getting desperate. She's realizing that by the time she gets finished killing all the sons plus Dornan she could be living at the clubhouse for years. And that's if Dornan doesn't get rid of her before she can succeed. With two brothers down, she's got to get creative, so when a ride comes up this could be her perfect opportunity to end them all once and for all.

  "I just want to kill every f*cking Ross brother. Except, Jase, of course."  -Juliette

Overall, this series took a massive turn in this book. All that heat has been building and we still have four more books to go before the journey is over. This book deserves 4.5 STARS out of 5 STARS. I NEED Four Score ALREADY!!

(Gypsy Brothers, #4)
Release Date: May 26, 2014



Love and hate aren’t all that different.

Two sides of the same coin, the yin and the yang.

Once upon a time, Jason Ross loved me. And now that he knows what I’ve done, I see the love and the hate warring within him.

I see the way he looks at me.

The way he wonders how I could do the things I’ve done.

I hear it in the way he begs me to stop, to leave this life and run away with him.

But there’s only one way I’m leaving LA.

And that’ll be when Dornan and the rest of his sons are dead and buried.

Jase might forgive me for what I’ve done.

But will he forgive me for the crimes I’m yet to commit?

  "The score's only at four. And until it's at seven? Love will have to wait."

OH. MY. LANTA. Make sure you read the first three books Seven Sons, Six Brothers, and Five Miles before reading this one. I thought the last book things were getting good, but this book just took it threw the roof!!

  "Damn it, Julz, you could burn the whole world down and I'd still forgive you."

Sammi/Juliette successfully killed over half the Ross brothers. With her little bomb idea, she almost got rid of Dornan as well. But now Jase knows her true identity and it's up to her to find out if she can truly trust him. But we all know it's only a matter of time before someone else finds out who Sammi truly is.

"Blood is sacred. Family is sacred. But clearly, we weren't family anymore."

Overall, I'm speechless. Lili St. Germain is bringing this series to a whole new level. I don't know how anything is going to top this book. It is well deserving of 5 STARS out of 5 STARS... The ending!! Watch out! It hits you, and then you will be scrambling for the next installment!!
