Stronger Than This by Abby McCarthy Now Live! #Silverfox #fivestarbookreviews
Stronger Than This, An all-new standalone MC Romance by Abby McCarthy is AVAILABLE NOW!
I married a monster — a member of a motorcycle club. I was okay with him blurring the lines until the lines he crossed turned against me. He wasn’t always a monster, or he hid it well. I wouldn’t have married him if I’d known. By the time his true colors showed, I was pregnant with no way out. Until one day, years of planning paid off, and I was able to run away with my daughter.
I found my footing in the foothills of Pennsylvania, thinking I would be far from any MC. I was wrong.
As a member of The Devil’s Crusaders, not much escapes me in Wakeman. Especially not the tiny, fiery redhead who strolled into town, so obviously hiding from something. She made my blood boil in the best way possible. I’d avoided taking an old lady, instead, choosing to spend my years raising my daughter. Not anymore. Not since Marie. I was ready, and she was it for me. I just had to find out what she was hiding from before it finally catches up to her.

Jade’s 5 out of 5 “Mickey Makes Me Feckin’ Melt” Blush Review

Louisa’s 5 Blush Review
Stephanie’s 5 Blush Review
Stronger Than This is the stand-alone story of Mickey McCafferty. His story will grab your heart strings and pull them right out of your chest! Mickey has been a major figure in the Wreck You series. He is Maura’s dad. I have not read Wreck You (yet), but was able to follow along fine. I devoured this story in one sitting!
Life is good for Mickey McCafferty. He is Sargent of Arms for the Devil’s Crusaders. He works, he plays, he has a tight knit “family” around him. He doesn’t need anything more.
Marie Bettinger is not so lucky. She was raised in an abusive house and left home at sixteen, never looking back. At twenty two she meets Drake, a member of the Raiders MC, and rides off on the back of his motorcycle never imagining how her life would change. By the time she realizes what a monster Drake is she is isolated and has a young daughter, Talon. But Marie is a fighter and finds a way to escape the abuse. She flees to a small town in Pennsylvania to start a new life with Talon.
“A man’s word was nothing if he used his fist on you. Marriage vows of promising to honor and respect – obliterated.”
Mickey and Marie’s story was amazing. It was heart felt and emotional. Marie tries to stay under the radar while starting fresh. But she just can’t seem to get away from Mickey. She tries to ignore him, but he can’t be ignored! Mickey is a combination of gentleman and roughly sexy. The chemistry between Mickey and Marie is explosive! The sexy time – HOT HOT HOT!
“I don’t know yer story, but I know myself. I’m the type of man that if he sees a woman needs help, he doesn’t walk away. If a man’s any type of man, he helps.”
Marie has scars both inside and out. She pays a high price for her freedom from Drake. But she is stronger than her hurt and stronger for her daughter. The road to freedom has many bumps and pot holes.
Abby McCarthy writes with her heart. She lays it all out there. And when “The End” is written we get a little piece of her soul.
Kerrys’ 4.5 Blush Review
Tera’s 4 Blush Reivew
Stronger Than This is the first book in Abby’s new Devil’s Crusaders series which is a spin-off of her Wrecked Series. I would imagine one would connect and enjoy this story even more if the Wrecked series was read first, but I have not read them and this book reads perfectly as a standalone.
The story begins with Marie being young and naive with the hot alpha biker, Drake, sweeping her off her feet and giving her a life that appeared so much better than the one she’d been living. Her reality turns into a living hell and the abuse she endures for years gets continuously worse. She finally finds the means to escape with her daughter.
“The moment you start to thinking monsters aren’t real, is the moment they attack.”
Once they start to settle, Mickey meets Marie and he must know her. He must have her. Mickey was so sweet. I loved his accent, and I loved that he showed Marie what a real man really acts like. Marie worked so hard to push Mickey away because she needed to stay under the radar to keep herself and her daughter safe.
“Mickey made me tremble because he was a promise of a life I’d always envisioned for myself but could never have.”
Abby has written us another heartfelt love story with just a touch of MC. I’m not huge on MC stories, but I appreciate that it’s never super heavy in her books. It felt just slightly slow in the middle, but the ending really made up for it. Mickey and Marie are destined for each other and the way she stitches the ending up was perfection.
