Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Nasty Bastard (Grim Bastards MC Book 4) by Emily Minton & Shelley Springfield
She's the daughter of a club traitor, trying to start over.
Daughter of the man that betrayed the Grim Bastards, Gidget Etheridge doesn't want anything to do with the club. She grew up being ignored by her father, but found solace in the arms of the boy she loved. Everything changed the day he turned his back on her. When she and her son are rescued by Smoke, she has to decide if the boy who broke her heart is worth a second chance.
He's a bastard, living life by his own rules.
Vice President Smoke Roundtree grew up knowing he would be a Grim Bastard, just like his father and grandfather. When he became a prospect, he made a choice between the club and the girl he loved. Even all these years later, he still wonders if he made the right decision. When he saves Gidget and her son, he finally has a chance to fix the mistakes of his past.
Can a bastard heal the heart he shattered thirteen years ago?

Smoke and Gidget! YUP! Complication … oh you bet. You know who Gidget is If you follow this series however if you do not you can read this as a standalone. And yes there is a cliffhanger. BOOM .. it’s a big one too.
Layton “Smoke” and Gidget were childhood sweethearts both raised in the MC. The Grim Bastards were home. Smoke had more of a decent upbringing than Gidget as her father was not around and eventually betrayed the club after Gidget had left. Nothing nothing other than wanting to spend the rest of their lives together, reality hits and Smoke drops Gidget. Leaving heartbroken Gidget leaves and takes her aunt up on the offer of attending college far away from the MC.
Fast forward years later Gidget is coming back home with her son. Her ex Richard vowed he would not try for custody if she left the house alone and went on her way. High society friends turned their back once they divorced even though Richard was the cheater. Coming back home Trenton becomes a huge mistake just hours after arriving. The men at her door are not friendly and she has no idea what they want. Gidget doesn’t know what her father and brother took but it can't be good. Protecting her son she takes a beating by a man she doesn’t know. (Triggers are possible here).
Smoke and the MC have become aware that money is missing from the MC. It could be no one else except for the traitor (Gidgets father) that is now in the ground. Heading to his old house he finds Gidget hiding with her son beaten and barely alive. Swearing right then and there he will never let her go again he will find the piece of shit that did this to her and make them pay.
This one is a roller coaster event. I love the fact that Trix is right by Gidget’s side knowing that it was her father and brother that harmed her. Family is family and Trix knows Gidget had nothing to do with any of that. The MC steps in to take care of Parker (Gidgets son) as well as her. But is this what Gidget wants? Can she trust this man again and is this the life she wants for her son? Danger, murder, and so much more surrounds the MC. Layton could walk away again and then what. Now she has Parker to consider. Staying could mean the world or heartbreak.
There is a doozie in here as well – Gidget takes a bunch of hits due to some cray cray folks. I loved this release as I have loved all the ones prior. I can't wait to see what the MC is up against now and who survives the fire.
Thank you ladies for the ARC! Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets. Bring on the next release please – hurry!
