I love reading series, there’s something about coming back to read a story again and again that I love, and this is a series I’m going to miss so much! The Gypsy Brothers was an amazing journey, raw, gritty, dark and so deep and emotional. I fell in love with these characters and I continue to do so in the prequel series.
The final chapter in Juliette’s story was OMG amazing. I honestly don’t have much to say, I love Julie and the strength she has, I love Jase so much, that guy is a sweetheart and brave like no other and together they just make me swoon!
“Julz, the things I used to do in this place—I used to hurt people and get off on it. I don’t want to hurt you, baby.”
Zero Hour is the perfect conclusion, not without pain mind you the series has been pretty painful to read so far and the last book is equally painful with the bittersweet feeling of conclusion but the author does it so well, it’s a good ending to a beloved story ♥
They say the apple never falls far from the tree, and I’d say this apple never fucking fell, period. I’m the shiny apple that might’ve looked the best on the surface—different to the rest of them, full of promise that there was another way—but they broke me. They made me worse than any of them could ever be.
I hurt people. I hurt women.
I killed people.
And that’s not even the worst of it.
The first man I ever killed was John Portland, and I cried as I pulled the trigger. Yeah, I was a stupid kid and he begged me to do it, and yeah, it was a mercy killing, but it doesn’t matter. Point is, his life was the first one I took—I killed Juliette’s father, for Christ’s sake—and after I ended his life with a single bullet, delivered in the dark in a dirty basement, I didn’t stop.
I couldn’t stop.
The last person I killed was Donny, my last surviving brother, and that was eight months ago. I ripped his fucking eyeball out before I butchered him, and the one single thing that stopped me from dismembering him was knowing that Juliette was watching me. Her screams broke through my haze of red, as I took Donny’s own knife and sunk it into his flesh, again and again, so deep it hit bone more than once. I severed the tendons that made his arms work, so he was putty underneath me. I straddled my own brother and thrust upon him the vengeful punishment that they all deserved. For Julz. For my mother. For everything.
I killed him, and I haven’t killed since.
I’m hungry. My palms are itching. It’s torture.
I don’t know how long I’m going to last before I have to draw blood again.
