RED: Five years ago, I was as boring as boring could be. Seriously, my name was Bernice. But then came that one month when I pretended to be somebody else entirely while working at a roadhouse biker bar….
Big Mistake. Huge. Who knew one month pretending to be an interesting bad girl could ruin a boring good girl’s life?
GRIFFIN: When I saw her, I knew she’d be mine. My old biker crew told me she was untouchable—that I’d never be able to land her without my fame and last name. So I did what any rock star with a big….ahem, ego would under the circumstances—wagered five figures on me seducing the untouchable girl behind the bar.
RED: When the insanely hot biker, who wouldn’t have looked at Boring Bernice twice, asks me to come back to his place, I decide, “why not?”
It was just supposed to be a silly fling….
GRIFFIN: It was just supposed to be a stupid bet. But what started out as fake got plenty real—especially after I lost her.
Five years. I spend five years searching for her. And when I find her….
RED: Five years. I managed to hide from him for five years. He’s powerful and dangerous, and I’m not sure what he’ll do if he discovers the secret I’ve been keeping from him for four years and nine months.
So when he finds me….
What’s this story called again? Escaping the Ruthless Biker?
GRIFFIN: No, that’s not the title.
The story is called Red….Red and the Big Bad Reaper.
And you’re about to find out why.
Great audiobook, good story
I listened to the audiobook with Clementine Dove and Ryan West, both who were really good! I loved that I listened to the book and enjoyed the story more, I think, than I would have if I read it.
In terms of the story, it felt campy and I really didn't like the big bad reaper, Griffin. He was childish and I didn't think that he was that invested in their relationship before, during or after the break-up. Red, or Beatrice, was ok but I also didn't agree with the things she did and again, the character felt a bit childish. The story is not dark, which is good, but it didn't feel like an MC story either because Griffin is a rock star but he was part of the MC. It just felt a little disjointed. The audiobook is 4 stars and the story is 3.5 stars.
