Liam is only about 35 pages, and what it lacks in word count, it makes up for in emotion. Each of these Heaven Hill Shorts touches on the aftermath of the events in Fury when the MC dealt with a kidnapping and losing one of their own, and while they've all had their fair share of emotional turmoil, Liam's family has been hit doubly hard. There are parts of this one that are hard to read and may be triggers for some, but I have to say that Laramie Briscoe handled those parts with the respect the situation deserves while still maintaining the flow and emotional impact of the story. All in all, another great addition to the Heaven Hill stories, and I can't wait for whatever comes next.
This quick read will pull at your heartstrings. Liam is dealing with everything that happened since he gave up being the President of the Heaven Hill MC, Justice being kidnapped and Mandy having a miscarriage. All of the members have dealt with the betrayal and kidnapping differently. Liam definitely has not been the same since Justice was taken and did not see how bad things were with Mandy until Walker told him what he saw. This deals with betrayal, loss, depression, separation and how it affects a family. This does end leaving us wondering if Mandy, Dalton and Walker will be a family again and come out on the other side. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
To fully understand this story, you need to have experienced Fury first, and each one of these shorts builds on the revelations of the ones before. These books may only be tiny snippets of life, but the author is able to imbue them with so much emotion. Getting hit by a speeding freight train would have less impact than these short stories do. I don’t think I’ve come out the other side of a single book in this series where I haven’t been in tears before the end, and this title was no exception. I don’t know what the author has in store for us next but I’m both eagerly anticipating it and dreading where it’s going to take me. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.
