When I read Nine Minutes at the end of last year I remember being completely blown away. I was really excited to read the sequel but also extremely nervous. I was nervous that the book wouldn’t live up to my expectations. The first book was so great, they were very high. But it did. 100% lived up to all my expectations. Maybe even exceeded them.

Reading Out of Time was an experience. I cried, I felt, my heart raced and I chewed off every one of my nails. This book jacked me up. It blew my mind. I am still thinking about it, calculating what will happen next in my head. The hours I read I was completely and utterly immersed in these characters story. It’s been two days since I’ve finished this book. Two days and I still find my mind drifting to this story…

The story was told in the present (2000) with various flashbacks to the past. We get Grizz’s childhood, Grunt’s childhood, Ginny’s childhood and all the times the three of them were together. It’s written in a way that’s easy to follow. Secrets are revealed. Some are kept. It’s a story of hope, love, lies, betrayal, soul mates and family.


Kit is one of those fantastic heroines. I love her and admire her strength. This book showcased just how strong she really is. Grizz is and will always be my favorite character of this series. He’s just one of those characters you can’t help but root for. Now to Grunt- when I finished Nine Minutes, I was not a Grunt fan. However, he really grew on me in this book. I don't know if it was getting a look into his past or finding out what really did or didn’t go down, but still. I’ll admit I did like him a bit. But this girl is still 100% #TeamGrizz.

If Out of Time shows you anything, it’s that Beth Flynn is not a one hit wonder. This book was equally as epic as the first. Her stories are brilliant and everything is woven together perfectly. There were so many things that were revealed in this story, but there are still so may questions I have. Yes, it ends in a cliffhanger  but I knew that going into it. That last chapter… last page… last line. Gah! I’m dying to see what direction she takes in the third and final chapter of the Nine Minutes trilogy. This is one I highly recommend and it’s going straight towards the top of my 2015 favorites list!

Reanell's Review: 


I am going to try and get my thoughts out on this book and not post spoilers. So there might not be much about the plot because it would suck to give out spoilers.

After I finished Nine Minutes I sat there wondering what the hell just happened. That cliffhanger was brutal. And then when I got the ARC for Out of Time, I sat with my jaw on the floor several times. There are so many secrets and lies that are being aired that sometimes I had to go back and re-read the paragraph to make sure I was actually reading what I was. My blogging partner was getting messages from me saying WTF several times.

The storyline jumps from different decades. Some readers didn't enjoy that and while I can agree it was hard to follow sometimes, I am actually glad we got so much of Grizz's past. I NEEDED that info on him. Then, you get so much of Grunt's past and it made me feel more for him than I did in Nine Minutes. I still can't pick a team. I'm both Team Grizz and Team Grunt.

I have to say I never in a million years would have guessed any of the plot twists in Out of Time. She totally blindsided me with everything she wrote. And I think it was brilliant. But how in the HELL am I going to wait until 2016 to get the 3rd book?!?!



Out of Time is book two in a series. It is not a standalone novel. I highly recommend that you read my first novel, Nine Minutes, to be able to understand the background stories of the main characters. There are many twists and turns in both stories that can best be connected if read consecutively.
 Although I do answer all of the outstanding questions from Nine Minutes, there is more to this story, and some readers may consider it a cliffhanger. If you do not like cliffhangers, you may want to wait until the third novel is released in 2016.

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 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?


“Yes! There is something I want for my birthday. Something I really want! I’ve been thinking about our prom date last year.”
“You want another romantic night at Martin’s beach house?” He grinned, relieved. A night making love with Kit at the beach house. Ohhhhh yeahhhh.
“No. Not the beach house.” She was bouncing in her seat now. “I want you to take me out! Dancing. I want to go to a club and go dancing.”
His smile faded and he looked a little deflated. He wasn’t going to tell her his name. He wasn’t going to go to church with her. How could he tell her no to the third thing she’d asked for?
“Shit, baby. You have to know I’m not a dancer. I barely got by with the slow dancing in Martin’s gazebo.”
“I want to go dancing, Grizz. Please! The only time I ever get to dance is when I convince Axel to dance with me in number four. And you know that’s barely ever. He won’t do it if there are a lot of people at the motel. He doesn’t want to risk being seen.”
Grizz had to smile at this. He’d walked in more than once on Axel and Kit dancing to one of those groups that Kit loved. If you asked him, those guys’ voices sounded like someone had their balls in a vice. A high-pitched squeal is all he ever heard and he never stayed around long enough to listen to an entire song.
“Why do you dance to a song about a bald-headed woman?” He’d asked her once.
Axel and Kit had stopped and peered at him strangely. “What do you mean by bald headed woman?” Kit had asked as Grizz turned the stereo down.
“These guys, who sound like women, are singing about a bald-headed woman,” Grizz replied.
She’d started laughing. “The Bee Gees are saying ‘more than a woman,’ Grizz. Not bald-headed woman! The song is called More Than a Woman and I happen to love it.”
“Whatever it’s called, it still sucks. I’m outta here.”
Grizz appreciated that Axel danced with his wife. And yes, he knew Axel’s other secret, too. He honestly didn’t care. He didn’t care what any guy decided to do with his dick as long as it was never near his wife. But he also knew he had to keep Axel’s secret. As leader, he had final say as to who could be in the gang. Still, he knew not everyone would be tolerant of Axel’s lifestyle. It was just easier to let it stay a secret. And besides, he was certain nobody suspected a thing.
“I don’t dance, Kit.” Grizz said now, shaking his head.
“But I want to go dancing for my birthday.” She folded her arms and gave him an accusing look. “You asked!”
He shook his head slightly and looked at her. “Can’t I just buy you another car?”
