Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club
Bash, Vol 2
Author: Candace Blevins
Rating: 4 Stars
Told in the first person.
Warning: A touch more BDSM, tons of raw kink, blazing hot sex, danger, intrigue, and there might even be a sexy ménage.

Their lives just got complicated, but neither of them are the type to travel the easy road.
Book two of the Bash trilogy…
Will Bud want to tear Bash to pieces? How is Dawg going to fit into all of this? Will the Disciples retaliate? And now that the District Attorney is in Angelica’s life, can she get him out?
Bash may have claimed her in both wolf and human form, but Angelica isn't likely to just roll over and show him her belly every time he gives her an order. One night of incredible sex doesn’t mean the relationship will be smooth sailing. They both want it to work, though, and they’re both used to getting what they want.

This volume picks up where volume one left off. Bash and Angelica are trying to figure out their new relationship and that’s mostly what this book is about. Then they are testing the waters of bringing a friend into the relationship. But there’s a character in this book that wants to upset the balance of the Club. Only you can decide how you feel about that turn of events. But don’t forget that some of these people are more than human.
Some may not like the language used by the characters but this stays true to the first volume. You also don’t want to start this set with this volume because you will miss too much. I liked the first volume but not as much as this one. So that just goes to show that you can’t give up on a series just because you weren’t overwhelmed with how much you loved the previous book. I thought this story moved more smoothly from one scene to the next.
What I love about this author is that she doesn’t try to change who her characters are – they make no excuses. It’s a story that shows that you can be a smart educated person and still be biased against a person just because of what you ride/drive and what you wear. And then if you’re a friend with such person (s) then you are guilty by association.
Just like in volume one even though this is listed as a paranormal – shifters and werewolves – it wasn’t all about the shifting. I felt it was more about the Club and the politics of that Club and where Angelica fits into all of this. With this volume I felt it was an even distribution of Bash and Angelica’s point of view – more so than the previous read. And just like the first volume, the author leaves the ending open ended so if you want to know what happens, you have no choice but to check out volume three.
Interview questions with Candace Blevins:
What is for you the perfect book hero?
What is for you the perfect book hero?
I don’t think there’s a single description. I’ve fallen in love with good guys, bad guys, antiheros… I need them to be honest, but otherwise, I’m not sure you can put the perfect hero into a tidy little box.
When you start a book, do you already have the whole story in your head or is it built progressively?
In the beginning I was a total pantser. Now, I’m kind of a hybrid pantser/planner. I know my characters inside and out before I start, and I know their backstories, as well as the main events of the book, and the basic ending. However, if I do much more than that, my muse gets bored. She often takes the stories in directions I hadn’t intended. We end up at the same ending, but there are often several fun detours, along the way.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When I got my first decently-sized royalty check.
I used to juggle professionally, and I didn’t consider myself a “professional” juggler until I made a good bit of money doing so, as well. For some, the fact they write everyday makes them a writer, and that’s fine for other people, but it wasn’t real for me until I was holding a check.
