Book Review: Making Choices (Black Shamrocks MC #2) by Kylie Hillman

Making Choices 
(Black Shamrocks MC #2)

by Kylie Hillman

He kills. She heals. In this game called love, how do you choose? Heart or head?

From the outside, it appears that Juliette Patrice has the perfect life. Her career is her number one priority, matched only by her desire to fulfill her parent’s enormous expectations.

Lucas 'Timber' Blake is the Sergeant-At-Arms of the Black Shamrocks MC. A violent man who cares only for his Club and his family, he's wrong for Juliette in every logical way.

Still dealing with the fallout from the explosive events earlier in the year, Lucas is tested further when Juliette is dragged into the middle of the war between rival Clubs. A war that's already had fatal consequences.

Common sense tells her to run. Her emotions compel her to stay. The time has arrived for Juliette to begin MAKING CHOICES.

DISCLAIMER: This book contains depictions of graphic situations and is not suitable for all readers.

My Review:

It very rare for me to hate a character and then grow to love them. In this case, I started off hating JJ - she seemed stuck up. A good girl that walked down the wrong street and ran into the big bad biker. But as the story went on, I noticed there were more sides to this character. She was stubborn and wanted to be the person her parents always wanted her to be. Even though it is impossible to make yourself happy by doing what others wanted.

On the other hand, I loved Timber he was a little ruff around the edges - but I think that is why I loved that character even more. Under a rock-hard shell was a sweet guy who would do anything for those that he loved.

Even though I have noticed a lot of flashbacks in Seizing Control and Making Choices, I do not think that it takes away from the story. If this pattern continues into the other books, I will start to believe that this is the author's style. I usually hate flashbacks and MPOV, but this author makes both of those aspects work. 

This book did not live up to the first book, but you can guarantee that it is just as exciting, dark, and twisted story.

Wife to a Harley riding, boating and fishing, four-wheel driving, quintessential Aussie bloke.
Mum to two crazy, adorable, and creative kids.
Crohn's Disease sufferer and awareness campaigner.
She’s also an avid tea drinker, a connoisseur of 80's/90's rock music, and is known for lacing everything she says with sarcasm and inappropriate innuendo.

Formerly working in finance, she was forced to reevaluate her plans for her life when severe Crohn's Disease brought her corporate career to a screeching halt. Restarting her childhood hobbies of writing and reading to alleviate the monotony of being sick and housebound, she found her calling and is enjoying life to the max. A typical day is spent in the "real" world where she hangs out with her awesome family and "book" world where she gets to chill with her fictional characters.

Kylie writes the books she wants to read. A lover of strong men who aren't perfect and aren't afraid to admit it, straight talking women who embrace their vulnerabilities, and real life gritty stories, she hopes these themes shine through her writing. An avid reader of all genres, Kylie hopes to release books that keep the reader on the edge of their seat- be it with suspense, heart-stopping thrills, or laughter.
