Review: Unfinished Business by Carina Adams

The Bastards of Boston live in a world most don't understand. They follow their own rules, only accountable to each other, the innocents they protect, and the people they couldn't save.

As president of the Bastards MC, Robert Doyle is the man behind it all. It’s his responsibility to keep his club safe, to be the smartest man in the room, and be ten steps ahead of everyone. He’d give everything he had, and sell his soul to the devil, to protect the ones he loves.

Until Rocker comes face-to-face with the pain he thought he’d buried. Old wounds are ripped open. Revenge consumes him. Once again he’s the teenager desperate to avenge his daughter’s murder and nothing else matters.

He calls me his angel, but the halo I wear caught fire a long time ago. There is no line I won’t cross, no law I won’t break. I’ll do whatever it takes to save him. If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, I’ll happily burn.

When past and present collide, we’re in for one hell of a bumpy ride.

Review by Jen Skewes

The first book that I read by Ms. Adams was Always Been Mine, which will always be one of my favorites.  That was 4 years ago.  Then a year later I read Honey Whiskey, which is the follow up to ABM.  After reading these two books and meeting Rocker I waited patiently for his story.  As you can see I have waited 3 years for this book, every once in a while bugging Ms. Adams for a releases date.  I wanted Rocker and Cris’ story because they were two characters that I loved.  So when I finally found out that it was releasing, I could not even begin to explain how excited I was.  Let me just say that the wait was totally worth it.  Ms. Adams nailed this one.  It was everything I could have hoped for and more.  It had all the feels and from the moment I started I could not put it down. 

Rocker and Cris have a lot of history together.  They have known each other since they were young teenagers, with Rocker being her brother’s best friend.  But they never seemed to get along.  They each claimed to hate the other but we see over time how that hate is so much more.  We see the both of them discover that their feelings for each are anything but hate. 

The majority of this book takes place fifteen years ago, which I loved.  We get to see how Rocker got to the place he is today.  We see how he became the man that we saw in the ABM and HW.  But more importantly we see how his relationship with Cris evolves over the years.  They had a rocky relationship where there were many arguments, but there were also moments that will make you laugh.  The banter between them always made me smile.  And the moment when they both realize their feelings, the moment when they are first intimate is a moment I will never forget.  It is one that I felt inside.  At that moment you felt every bit of love and passion that these two had for each other.  It was so beautiful to see.

Rocker is the guy that you love but at times want to throat punch. He is 100% alpha male who at times can act like a real jerk.  But regardless I loved him.  He had a heart, and despite the way he sometimes acted towards Cris you felt the love and knew it was because he cared. 

Cris is the heroine that I loved.  She is strong and independent but I think in a way a little na├»ve especially when it comes to Rocker’s world.  But she was young and I understood that part.  But it is also what I loved about her.

I loved that we got to see a lot of the other characters in this book especially Matty who I love.  He has a very close relationship with his sister and I loved seeing it in this book.  And of course the other members of the Bastards MC, Tank, Tiny, Dean.  I loved them all.  These characters and this series is one that I can talk about for days.  Ms. Adams once again proved why she is an amazing writing and why I love reading her stories.  I felt it all with this one.  There is some drama and angst, times that will make you want to cry and moments where your heart will melt.  I felt every emotion right along with Rocker and Cris, the anger and frustration to the love and passion.  I cannot wait for the next one. 

Just a side note, Unfinished Business is a spin off of the MC Bastards series.  You don’t have to read the first two books but I highly recommend that you do.  It will give you a better understanding of the characters.
