Out of Time (Nine Minutes, #2) ~ Beth Flynn

They thought with his execution it would all be over. 
They were wrong.
The leader of one of South Florida’s most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they’ve been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top. 
In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida’s Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason “Grizz” Talbot, the terrifying leader of Satan’s Army motorcycle gang, and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal. 
Not even Grizz’s inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government’s most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he’d once abducted and later made his wife.
Once Grizz’s obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she’d first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair have spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they’d once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he’s finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the façade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can’t seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bonds that hold them together. 
And with Grizz finally put to death, now Ginny has learned secrets so dark, so evil she’s not even sure she can go on. 
Will these secrets tear their love to pieces? And how far will Grizz go to protect what he still considers his, even from beyond the grave?

I Devoured it!!
I know I'll be going through a serious book funk after finishing OOT!!
Nothing will appeal, I'll be in limbo for days, all I'll speak about is OOT!!
It was that FUCKING GOOD...
I never really thought Nine Minutes ended on a cliffy but there was so much more that could've been answered.. And we get that in OOT with a cliffy and more questions and so many other crosswords and story lines!!! Gahhhh 

Grizz was the mother-fucking man hands down, 
the way every turn was already mapped, questions anticipated.. 
The life he was brought up in and the life he led weren't easy.. Reading about his past was gut wrenching, 
I could sympathize and came to terms with the man he became. He absolutely adored 
Kit and while reading OOT you could grasp just how deep that Love went..

Ginny had so much thrown at her and had to come to terms with all the lies she 
lived with..
All the decisions made for her, she was sheltered for her own sanity.
 I wondered while reading if she would've been able to deal with the truths, 
been able to still Love Grizz as much as she did knowing how ruthless he was, really seeing how he dealt out his punishments and how he gained all that respect and 
fear from his club and those around him.

Grunt finally got a chance to tell his side of story, shed some much needed light on past events. 
I kept telling myself through out the story that he was SO young, also had an abusive childhood and was forced to grow up way to fast. 
As well as everything he did, every move he made was all for Love. He was loyal to a fault but again loyal to those he deemed worthy. We got to see a different, more mature, controlled/reserved side to Tommy and he was amazing and so patient with Ginny.
I fell for him more and more as I continued to read, but also wanted to kick him in the neck with certain revelations..

SO many characters played important roles which I will not get into.
But all I will say is that there were some jaw dropping, eye opening moments that were just Brilliant. BUT no matter what was revealed and what the future holds for those still actively in the game I have been and forever will be Team Grizz..

One of the coolest things about reading this book is that I know all the counties and streets mentioned in it.. Some roads I take on a regular basis and can't help but wonder how it would have looked back in the 50's..
I still cannot believe when I picked up NM last year that it was from a debut author, 
and NOW reading OOT the continuation to NM I'm still in Aww of the writing, world building and characters have been amazing.. I will continue to follow Beth Flynn anxious to see what else she has in store for us and recommend these books to anyone that will listen for a very long time..
