Book Tour for Retaliation by Cat Mason (REVIEW)

A man who lives and breaths violence finds himself drawn to a woman with a painful past of her own in this exhilarating and erotically-charged MC-themed romance.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Retaliation by Cat Mason, along with my impressions of it, then add this first installment in the Twisted Mayhem MC series to your bookshelf!

When Roanne Frazier is thrown into a dangerous world she knows nothing about, the only one she can count on is the only person who has ever let her down.
Blood and bullets are part of the game for Jensen Stone. Being President of the Twisted Mayhem MC means sometimes business requires bloodshed and Stone has no problem getting his hands dirty. Known for being fearless and ruthless in his tactics, his main goal is doing all he can to better his club and his town. Though it is easy to be reckless when you have nothing to lose.
The world as they know it is about to be turned upside down. The pain of their pasts collides with the chaos of the present and sends the tension building between them into overdrive, proving that some things don't fizzle out with time. Secrets are revealed, lives are changed, and the small town of Legion Falls, Tennessee will never be the same.
Will Ro and Stone find a way to hold onto each other while everything comes crashing down around them? Or will they be torn apart for good by their need for retaliation?



Readers looking for an exhilarating thrill ride of sex and blood set amidst the gritty world of the Twisted Mayhem MC will find themselves drawn to this series starter.  When childhood friends reunite fiery encounters result when vengeance comes calling from an unlikely source as the past comes back to leave everyone's futures in doubt.

When Jensen Stone's parents were killed he was taken in by the powerful Alfred Frazier who included him in his plan for vengeance which introduced him to a violent world where weakness isn't allowed.  Stone's one weakness though was, and still is Roanne, Alfred's daughter.  They once were friends but now that she's back in his life he'll fight to claim the only woman he's ever wanted while trying to keep her safe from those who killed her father.  Theirs is an erotically-charged connection that has them scorching up the sheets while dodging bullets.  As he desperately tries to keep her from harm she ends up right in the middle of a war where no one is safe.  And just when it seems as if they won this battle a new one emerges.  Stone's a super sexy beast with his encounters with her teeming with sexual tension.  His alpha tendencies roar to the surface often as he tries to keep her as far away from his brutal world as possible, but is right by her side when she demands justice.  He was a drool-worthy hero even at his most brutal and it's men like this who keep me clamoring for more MC-themed romances.

Roanne never wanted to be involved in her father's business, but on the night he's killed she discovers more than she ever wanted to know about his dealings. Discovering how far he went for vengeance though rocks her world and leaves her doubtful of everything.  Realizing the gritty and brutal world Stone's brought her into leaves her angry, fearful, and unsure of her feelings for him but when she needs him most he's right there beside her.  With Stone racing to her rescue she soon finds herself trapped between painful truths and vengeful characters whose identities are shockingly revealed, fighting for her life.  From the moment Stone put her on his motorcycle she morphed from a pampered princess to someone willing to fight for herself.  From putting a grasping and desperate club chick in her place to reaping her own form of vengeance she didn't hold back which had me admiring her grittiness.  That's not to say she doesn't have a soft side which had me aching for her as she discovered many hurtful truths.  Roanne ultimately showed herself to be a strong-willed woman more than capable of giving as good as she gets and she's a good match for Stone.

This book started off with a bang and ended with one, leaving readers clamoring for more as yet another war has been issued to the Club.  From the first page to the last a fast pace was set that gave little time for breathing as bullets were flying and blood was shed.  With villains whose identities were cleverly hidden to a vengeful plot that kept me guessing I found myself on edge and holding on for dear life.  Add in the scorching romance between Stone and Roanne and you'll be left breathless.  Aiding Stone in this battle are the other colorful and larger than life men of the Twisted Mayhem MC.  From the quiet yet commanding Colt, and his sweet connection to a mouthy angel of mercy, to the funny and flirty Schrader who makes me drool, I look forward to seeing more of them.  With its explosive ending sending shock waves I'm left greatly anticipating the next installment in this compelling series starter that held nothing back!

My rating for this is an A-

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.


Cat Mason is a thirty year old, married mother of three. When she isn't writing; she is spending time with her kiddos or reading. She was born and raised outside of St. Louis, Missouri, just over the Mississippi River in Granite City, Illinois. Cat writes romance of all kinds with twists of humor.
