Rotten Apple is the BB’s addition to the Royal Bastards MC shared world. If you have read GFY, you kind of met FOCUS, who is the main male character in this, back in that book, and you got to learn a bit about the Rotten Apple chapter of the Royal Bastards MC. If you didn’t, don’t sweat it, it isn’t truly integral to this particular book, it just gives it added shading.
So, here’s our book. FOCUS is a member of the Royal Bastards MC, and he and another guy are out scouting talent for the women that they run as strippers and sex workers. That’s when they meet Nixx. She’s a waitress at the diner they’re at. She’s beautiful, and looks all sweet and innocent. FOCUS thinks that she’s perfect and he’s going to get her. Slowly but surely, FOCUS focuses on Nixx, woos her, and then brings her into his world.
First, she starts out as a waitress, then she turns into a stripper, then she turns into a sex worker. And then, well, I guess you just have to read and find out, now won’t you?
Having read the BB’s Masters MC books, I expected dark and intense, especially knowing what some of the subject matter was going to be. But, it’s not dark. It is intense at times. Now, don’t get me wrong. This is not all sweetness and light or anything. Just the basic subject matter is going to move it to the dark side. But, there is all kinds of funny going on in here, along with a little sweet. I think that Nixx is hysterically funny at times, and there are some times when I just laughed my ass off at her shenanigans.
Nixx really does have this whole lightness to her spirit. Maybe freeness is the better word. There’s just something about her that makes people like her, I think. She’s infectious. Wait, that might not be the best word to use right now. You know what I mean, though. She’s like some kind of sprite or something. The shiniest apple sprite ever.
Then we have FOCUS, which stands for fuck off ’cause you’re stupid. He’s a rough biker and a former Marine. He’s not any kind of sweet guy, with a lot of poetical romance in his soul. In fact, he pretty much has no romance in his soul at all.
He’s supposed to overwhelm Nixx and be the one all in charge, but I’m pretty sure that it didn’t work that way. I don’t think he knew what to do with Nixx once he really got a hold of her. I don’t think that anyone really knows what to with Nixx when they get a hold of her. I think she just defies being contained.
This was a fantastic story, and I really hope we are going to get more from these guys, and that we get to see a lot more of FOCUS and Nixx.
I like Bishop, but I’m not particularly sure that I like him in one place this one. I’m pretty sure that I don’t like FOCUS in a couple of moments too.
OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
