Fighting. F@cking. F@cking things up. That was my life. That was how I got out of the world I had been raised in. And it was how I intended to keep living my life.

That was, of course, until I came across her. The game changer.


Hard work. That was pretty much all you could say my life consisted of. It was what got me out of a rough childhood. It was what made me get my first taste of success. Before things went to hell, that is. But it was what was going to get me back on my feet too. So I didn’t need any distractions. Certainly not one that came covered in scars, blood, leather, and in a cloud of cigarette smoke.

Yet, there he was.
And I was thinking maybe a distraction wouldn’t be that bad, right?

 Pagan by Jessica Gadziala (The Henchman MC, #8)

Pagan (The Henchmen MC, #8)From the cover that sets the atmosphere to the last page, Jessica Gadziala’s PAGAN is 100% in-your-face, hardcore, tough-as-nails entertainment. In a world where the graduates of the school of hard knocks live, and love and loyalty are at the core of the Henchmen’s souls, Jessica Gadziala sharpens her razor-sharp wit and go-for-broke style with one of her best romances yet.

Pagan has anger management issues which he quenches in the underground fighting rings. A newer Henchman, he can be the voice of reason or an erupting volcano of fury and thanks to a beautiful lady in distress, he can also be a knight in tarnished armor.

Kennedy worked hard to leave behind the nightmares of her youth and she is determined to keep working as hard as she must to make a success of her life and her business. Too bad she has obstacles at every turn in the form of an egotistical landlord who sees her as his next conquest, willing or not.

Then there he was, tall dark and nameless, dangerous, wild and pure alpha male and the sparks that flew were more like Roman candles on steroids and she didn’t even know his name. Come on, all work and no play makes Kennedy a cranky girl, right? She isn’t used to being supported in her dreams, every step of the way has been uphill and her beauty salon has become the world she has given up everything for until Pagan shows her that she is not an island, that he will always have her back, want her body and cherish her. Everyone has a past that makes them the person they are today, but Pagan keeps his past close to the vest, with good reason, but for once, that past will help him express what he has trouble saying to the woman who has cooled his angry fire.

Once again Jessica Gadziala does things her way, changing up the violence and action for a rough-edged romance between a good girl and a very bad boy. Add the Henchmen and their women and I have to say, THIS is what family is about. Yep, I really did see that here. No, Ms. Gadziala is not going soft, she is being real, raw and as passionate as her characters. Feel the sizzle, the heat and experience the need for a swift sniff of smelling salts as Pagan and Kennedy each meet their match in every way! I just love when the tough guy goes all weak-kneed for the beauty who can control his very breath!

I received an ARC edition from Jessica Gadziala in exchange for my honest and voluntary review. If you haven't followed this series...I can only ask why not!
