Blog Tour/Review: Neil By Sybil Bartel



Neil
(Uncompromising #2)
By Sybil Bartel
Ex-Danish Military Special Forces, built like a legend, and uncompromising in every way—Neil Christensen didn’t walk into my life. The Viking-sized warrior crashed it like a hurricane.

The moment he showed up at my strip club, my life fell to shit. South Florida's most ruthless motorcycle gang, the cops, the Feds—they all want something I don’t have, something the Viking took from me.

I thought I could run, but the motorcycle gang caught me. Now the only thing standing between me and an unmarked grave is a warrior I don’t trust.

I’m not afraid to die, but I am terrified of weathering the storm. Because when a Viking decides to unleash his fury, no one is going to come out unscathed.

Warning: Mature audiences only. 18+

My Review:

* I received a free ecopy of this novel from the author in exchange of an honest review.

This book made me stay up until three in the morning to finish it and I adored every minute of being a zombie for the next day. It's been awhile since I've come across a book that willingly made me stay up until the wee hours of the morning knowing I was going to regret it. This book did touch upon subjects I disagree with, but overall I really enjoyed the book.

I liked Ariel, but there were a lot of times that I questioned her judgement. I can't really go into detail, but I can say the following: her relationship with Jason (her child's father) seemed very toxic and she willingly let it happen again and again. I'd also like to mention the lack of a condom when she and Neil finally happened. She's barely keeping the fridge full and is behind on rent. Why would she risk another child with the way her financial situation is? Other than that, I liked her spunk and her witty retorts.

I have a love/hate relationship with Neil as a character. I liked when he become protective of Ariel and Connor and started to look out for them and help Ariel with groceries and with the sh*t her ex trudged up. His cold demeanor though and hot and cold answers really bothered me. At the end of the novel Ariel broke through his barriers and he did start showing some emotion, which helped my view of him a lot.

Though I don't understand how Ariel became fine with accepting Neil's money after she threw a hissyfit, in the beginning of the novel, when he wanted to give her money to pay her overdue rent. The ending was very sweet. I liked how this book was written and unlike in the first novel of this series I didn't feel lost. Though I would recommend an editor have another look at this because there were passages I had to reread a few times to understand what was being said.

My Favorite Quotes:

"Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth."

"Courage is knowing what not to fear."

"[...] Respect is earned. Love is from the heart and I don't have to earn shit."

My Rating:

About The Author:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
