Review: Truth by AC Bextor

To protect Emma and save Casey, Max continues his battle against Satan's Creed MC and those who dwell within its compound.
This is the final book of the Vengeance Duet and is also categorized as romantic suspense, which includes darker themes. Due to situations and content, this book should not be read by those under the age of 18.


The players have been identified and the plan is in formation.

Connotation. Inference. Postulate.
To ensure Casey's safety and avenge his sister's death, Max Taylor continues his vow for vengeance against the men who threaten harm to those he loves.

Trueness. Verity. Honesty.

His life within the Creed MC compound is darkening as each day passes. Until now, he's been left without word from those who swore their allegiance to his cause.

Veracity. Credibility. Authenticity.

As the bonds of brotherhood are further tested, Max is soon forced to accept what should ultimately set him free.


4 Star Review by Jennifer Hagen

Usually I curse my insomnia, but in this case it allowed me to finish a book in one setting without the human garbage disposals vying for my attention or food.  “Dirty” was the predecessor to “Truth” and whereas the first book held the story setting and build up, “Truth” had the execution.  I could not have fallen asleep even if I had tried – there was way too much happening for me to put the book down.  Once again Ms. Bextor has written flawlessly from the character’s voices to the scene progressions.  I can always immerse myself in her writing.  I never have to guess where she is taking me on her journey because she writes with such fluidity that I can forget about everything else and just follow her words.
I can’t find that in all books, but I can find that in all Ms. Bextor’s books.

Casey is 11-years-old and being held behind locked doors at Creed, the local motorcycle club. Her mother is a drug addict and really couldn’t give a care as to how Casey is faring.  She and Hangar are too busy getting high to notice.  Hangar gives me the creeps…he is the club vice president, a junkie and a mean junkie at that.  I wouldn’t trust him even if I could see him.  He just has an evil way about him and he is evil to the core.  He is very brutal with his physical force.  Basically Hangar scares me and can’t be trusted.

Max is a very good guy.  He is dating Casey’s aunt, Em, and he has worked his way into his former club’s good graces to keep his eye on Casey and to try to get her out of there.  There are secrets abounding at the clubhouse.  Why is Casey being held and why are there other women being held? It’s very stressful for Max to play the club knowing that once his game is figured out he will have to face the consequences of betrayal.

“I hate this,” I admit quietly, running my hand through the back of my hair in frustration.  “Every f*ckin’ minute of every g*dd*amn day.  I hate it.”

Max has promised to get to the bottom of Casey’s captivity and he will do whatever it takes to free her.  He loves Em and wants to resolve this issue so that they focus on being a family together.  His quest for answers has overtaken his life and everything else around him seems to be on hold.  He once left the life of the MC and here he is back again seeing vile things that he does not want to be part of.  He will do anything to free Casey.

I’m convinced I won’t find the peace I struggle so badly to gain until she’s free.

With the help from his friends that like to “blow sh*t up”, Max is getting closer to finding the truth behind Casey’s captivity and what it means for her.  Max is playing a dangerous game of conning two sides.  If caught he will be of no help to Casey, and even Em’s life can be used to draw him out of his game plan. Plus there’s the added mystery of what happened to his sister, Marie, that is being used to play him.   We have to hope Max can keep his game face because there are too many innocent lives on the line counting on his well-played deception to free them.   It’s all or nothing…

“This is the truth, my friend.  It’s what you said you were after all along.  But knowing the truth, as you’re about to, will change how you see your life and how you’ve come to accept it.  You can’t go back to being who you were once you know.”
