The story of Deuce and Eva…
An undeniable connection that stands the test of time.
Love and pain and everything in between.
I was five years old when I met Deuce, he was twenty-three, and it was visiting day at Riker’s Island. My father, Damon Fox or “Preacher”, the President of the infamous “Silver Demon’s” motorcycle club -mother chapter- in East Village, New York City, was doing a five-year stint for aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon. It was not the first time my father had been in prison and it wouldn’t be the last. The Silver Demon’s MC was a notorious group of criminals who lived by the code of the road and gave modern society and all it entailed a great big f**k you.
“Never forget the day Eva came bouncin’ into my f**ked up life, shakin’ pigtails, singin’ Janis, wearin’ chucks and sharin’ peanuts and straight up stole any decency I had left which wasn’t a whole lot but she f**kin’ took it and I’ve been hers ever since.”
I’m glad I read this book……..sort of, and for the record, I am in total agreement with most of what I’ve heard and read about it. The best way I can describe it is GUT WRENCHING. I loved it and hated it and I wish I could sit down and have a good cry because I don’t think I’ve ever experienced what was going on in my mind, heart, and stomach while I continued to allow these gamut of emotions. I literally could not put it down, didn’t want to, but at times I did want it to end because I thought I couldn’t take the tragedy of it all any longer. I am completely worn down, worn out, and my heart hurts.
The characters are real and true and I lost count of the times I was disappointed in their decisions but I also knew that what they did or said was true to who they were. If the author had painted this pretty picture of them the outcome would have come across as fake and this story is anything but. Early on, it’s easy to see these characters are meant to be together, but their journey is pure torturous hell. The title is VERY fitting to this couple. So, if you decide to read it for yourselves, take heed to all the warnings. It is NOT pretty, uplifting, or the perfect happy-ever-after most of us need/want from our books. I guarantee it will push all of your limits and exceed a lot of them. It is a harsh, authentic, sad, tragic, painful, shocking, powerfully well told story that has attached itself to my soul. I don’t know that I will ever be able to erase the mark its left. Sounds dramatic, but seriously, it will take me days, maybe longer to move on.
If you like your stories dark, edgy, well-written, and welcome the ugly truths of the biker world, you’ll be all over this one.
