Affliction by Kelly Mooney

He couldn’t save her—he wanted to.

He tried—he failed.

For seven years Brody blamed himself for not saving the one girl who ever touched his heart—Samantha Ashburn. That one night altered his life and changed the man he always thought he’d be. Turning to drugs, sex and violence was never part of his plan, but neither was losing his mother or failing Samantha. Brody found solace within his club, the South Street Crew and their criminal activities. He knew one day he’d walk away either in jail, fleeing, or dead.

When Samantha stumbled back into his life on his best friend’s arm, Brody felt the instant connection he’d always experienced when she was near. Forced to claim her in order to protect her from the mafia’s son and his best friend was the only way he knew how to protect her. He refused to lose her a second time. But she wasn’t safe—not in his world. He’d do anything to save her. Anything.

My Thoughts:

There was a lot going on in this book. The POV confused me many times because it was shared by different characters.

There was a band in the book but it was unnecessary.

There was a bit of a love/hate relationship going with Brody. I won't tell you which won. ;-)

Sam, the heroine was steadfast and somewhat feisty.

There were some emotional scenes, romance and action. Plenty of surprises too.

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. I enjoyed it.
