Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn

Rating: 5 stars

Title: Nine Minutes

Author: Beth Flynn

Length: 326 pages


On May 15, 1975, fifteen-year-old Ginny Lemon is abducted from a convenience store in Fort Lauderdale by a member of one of the most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs in South Florida.

From that moment on, her life is forever changed. She gets a new name, a new identity and a new life in the midst of the gang’s base on the edge of the Florida Everglades—a frightening, rough and violent world much like the swamps themselves, where everyone has an alias and loyalty is tantamount to survival.

And at the center of it all is the gang’s leader, Grizz: massive, ruggedly handsome, terrifying and somehow, when it comes to Ginny, tender. She becomes his obsession and the one true love of his life.

So begins a tale of emotional obsession and manipulation, of a young woman ripped from everything she knows and forced to lean on the one person who provides attention, affection and care: her captor. Precocious and intelligent, but still very much a teenager, Ginny struggles to adapt to her existence, initially fighting and then coming to terms with her captivity. 

Will she be rescued? Will she escape? Will she get out alive—or get out at all? Part psychological thriller, part coming-of-age novel, filled with mystery, romance and unexpected turns, Nine Minutes takes readers into the world of one motorcycle gang and inside the heart of a young girl, whose abduction brought about its fall.


Beth Flynn is a genius. 

Holy smokes what did I just read? This book grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. When you get to the end you're like what did I just read? I usually can tell you how a book is going to be throughout the book, but not with this book. Wow, just wow. There are twists and turns in this book I did not see coming. I'm still kind of dumbfounded.

I can see how she fell in love with Grizz. Grizz  does love her, he spoils her, she gets whatever she wants but isn't a princess. Unfortunately she see's some things regarding the club that she doesn't like at all so she stays out of club business as much as possible.  She's pretty much a loaner with a few exceptions. 

I don't know if I should feel stupid for not seeing how this book was going to end or just say the author is a genius. As you can see from the first sentence of this review, I'm going with Beth Flynn is a genius!

I cannot wait for the sequel to this book.
