***Blog Tour and Giveaway*** Withstanding Me by Crystal Spears

While the chaos and bloodshed have slowed for a short period, life is never quiet in the world of Breakneck. The club is taking time to regroup from internal betrayal and the changing of the guard in a rival group.
Zig Zag became a father at the age of thirteen. While raising a child has never been easy, now his eighteen year old daughter Tatiana makes his life downright hard. She has caught the eye of Travis, the new President of the rival MC Gunners, but all she really wants is Shadow, the newest addition to the Breakneck family. When Shadow’s rejection sends Tatiana running from the only family, home, and safety she’s ever known, ZZ is crazy
 with worry. The distraction caused by Tatiana’s disappearance could prove to be Zig Zag’s downfall.

If that isn’t enough, ZZ finds himself rampantly attracted to the one and only Storm. She’s beautiful, quick and witty. Their friendship is the one thing that keeps him from growing crazy, and Storm stands by ZZ through all the turmoil. Zig Zag is not accustomed to hearing the word no, so Storm’s constant
withstanding just draws him in deeper. Their friendship is one thing keeping him from going crazy, until one night…

The club is regrouping and rebuilding from the mayhem known as the Russian Mafia. A hit is ordered on Tatiana, Storm, Winter, and Piper.

Tatiana’s egg donor reveals secrets that a thirteen year old Zig Zag was too young to understand.

Braxxon is out of reach while he helps Greg Cage deal
 with some dirty business.

Bloodshed… Secrets… Betrayal… Trauma… Welcome back to the Breakneck world.

Sandy B's Review
"How much longer are you gonna keep withstanding me, darlin?"

Storm stands up and grabs her clipboard off the bar before answering me. And that answer blows my fucking mind wide open.

"Just until you fall in love with me," she says seriously.

Love? "I don't do love, baby."

She slowly backs away smiling. "Oh, but you will and it'll be with me," she says with a wink.
My name is Sandy and I’m a Breakneck B*tch!  There I said it.  There has been much controversy about Crystal Spears and whether or not her books compare with or are as good as some other MC books.  You know what?!  I don’t care! Not one fig. Too much bull lately with bullying authors and trying to blacklist them on Goodreads prior to the book even being released.
There is room for everyone in this genre so can’t we all just get along?! 
Ok.  Rant over. Now back to Withstanding Me.  This is the story of ZZ and Storm and it picks up right where Seize Me left off.  ZZ was a father at the young age of 13 years old.  His daughter, Tatiana, is in love with Shadow but Shadow turns her down flat.  She runs away and ZZ loses his ever loving mind worrying over her safety.  His “friend” Storm is there to support him as they search for Tatiana.  ZZ thinks he can drown his worries by having sex with Storm.  Little does he know that Storm is in love with him so a roll in the hay is not going to be enough for her.
Storm was rescued from a life of rape, verbal abuse and drug addiction which kept her a sexual slave.  This girl has been through some stuff.  I can’t blame her for wanting to have the complete package.  Otherwise, why bother to get herself together. 
ZZ’s life is his little girl and the motorcycle club.  There is always a woman available around the clubhouse to satisfy his appetites but Storm is the one he wants to sink himself into this time.  No one has ever said no and he can’t get it through his head that Storm is totally serious. 
Personally, I liked Book #1 Seize Me over Withstanding Me.  Maybe it’s because that is the one that introduced us to these characters.  Or maybe it was the “breakneck” pace of Seize Me.  Maybe it was the gummmmiiiieeees.  LOL.
Having said that – there is plenty of what we look for in an MC book here.  Vroom Vroom in on board and happily waiting the next ride.
