Retaliation was my first book by Cat Mason and I found it entertaining. I'm a sucker for a good MC book and loved the blurb. When the story begins I was actually a little overwhelmed with all that started going on. There's a lot of different things at play here and I had to really concentrate to keep it straight.
I really wasn't a huge fan of Roanne in the beginning and I struggled trying to actually connect with her character. I liked that she could be so strong but she had a tendency of not thinking things through completely. I grew to understand her a little more and warmed up to her character. However, I never fully felt like she was the best heroine.
Jensen was very much the typical Alpha Biker so there were definitely moments I wanted to punch him in the junk and then other times I wanted to hug him. He's definitely not a Prince Charming, though and at parts I found myself rolling my eyes at his behavior. He's complicated for sure and it makes their relationship complicated as well.
I liked the secondary characters even if there seemed to be so many I couldn't keep up sometimes. I really enjoyed Schrader and I am anxious for his story as well as Jinks. As the first book in a series, I always expect some bumps and while I didn't find myself absolutely loving this story, I'll be sure to check out the next book.
