Gabriel's Regret book 1 (Medlov Men series 2) by Latrivia Welch

Gabriel's Regret: Book 1 (The Medlov Men Series 2)Gabriel's Regret: Book 1 by Latrivia Welch

I have rocked with this author for so long. I can still remember reading Dmitry's Closet and being blown away.

I remember thinking....

IMO you should read all 4 of the Medlov Crime Family books before starting this book.
Any fan of the Medlov crime family books has been waiting for Gabriel's story to be told. (Especially those in her FB fan group) The man are delicious and completely dangerous. The women are strong and down for their men. Case in point Royal (the OG that started it all)

In comes Valeriya. Can we just marinate on her name for a second. Truly the name of a Valkyrie. (And Conan the Barbarian's first love)

I love how the author incorporated Valeriya's struggle (which is also her brother's and a group of others as well) as a Black woman in a European country. Gabriel is in a slump with his love life. Meaning he knows what he wants (a strong woman like Royal and Renee) and he knows his current partner Briggy is NOT that. Cue Valeriya and cue the political unrest that Gabriel is delivering guns into.

I am so glad part 2 drops in two days because you can't leave me hanging the way she did.

When you’re born you never know what life will throw at you. You just make the best of it no matter what happens. That’s pretty much been my go-to since infancy. Then the charming, bald headed, blue eyed, Brent came along and I thought all the suck in life had been flushed down the drain. Ha! That’s when my true journey began—motherhood. 
This is my story, on how I took life by the go-nads when I decided I needed closure from my past—my father’s sudden death in particular. But what happens next wasn't anything I expected… It’s hopeless… shattering….exciting … scary…joyful…priceless… and I owe it all to one man... Bear, a chapter president of the Sacred Sinners Motorcycle Club.
Warning: Contains adult sexual content, the excessive use of the F-word, cheating, and whatever else that makes it unsuitable for anyone under the age of 18. 
1st Novel in a Duology - that could also be read as a possible standalone.

I knew pregnancy was involved and I knew bikers were involved. I also knew, of course, that this was a Bink Cummings book so I was guaranteed a no nonsense main female character. What I was given was Kat. She wasn’t hard core aggressive, but when push came to shove [and there was some pushing] she was there to stand up for herself.
Side note: It isn’t necessary for you to have read the MC Chronicles books, but if you had you’d know a tad bit more about some of the characters mentioned.
This book….

 I just – I just don’t know how I feel about Brent and Kat. What I do know is that Brent is a P.O.S and Kat needs to put a padlock on her cooch.

 I’d love to go into detail on what a douche bucket Brent is and how he can jump off of a cliff onto some rocks, but that would ruin the book. I will say that I love that I don’t love (who I assume to be) the main male character. I like a wrench to be thrown into the mix and this book gives it me. I am in serious dislike with pretty much 90% of every male in Kat's life.  There isn’t one example of a reliable, true person in this series [so far]. Everyone has their own priorities and family is NOT number one or in some cases not even number three.  I cannot wait to read part two to see where this story is going. We’re introduced to some memorable characters and I definitely want to see the parts that they play in Kat's life. I have opinions and theories on everyone and I cannot wait to see which ones were correct.

If you like HEA books that are wrapped up in a bow this is not for you. There is anger, sorrow, love, lust, and hopelessness and this is only book one. There may be a HEA, but not yet.

I know there will be lots of drama, lots of anger and lots of sex :) And I can't wait.
