My Review & Release Blitz: Penance by KE Osborn

Title: Penance

Series: The Chicago Defiance MC Series Book 2

Author: K E Osborn

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: July 26

I’m not sure how it happened.
The way the cord of life can splinter and snap without warning.

My family—in hiding from the Japanese Yakuza.
My club—at war with the very organization my family is hiding from.

Though, amidst the chaos, there is one shining light.
A Spanner in the works.
A woman who’s not only the complete opposite of me, and everything I stand for, but a woman who my parents should frown upon.
She’s brash, where I am guarded. We shouldn’t work.

This story isn’t about a dynasty reuniting and mending old wounds—it’s betrayal, deception, conflict and turmoil.

Bloodshed—it’s coming.

Who will pay the ultimate penance?





Australian author K E Osborn was born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia. With a background in graphic design and a flair for all things creative, she felt compelled to write the story brewing in her mind.

Writing gives her life purpose. It makes her feel, laugh, cry, and get completely enveloped with the characters and their story lines. She feels completely at home when writing and wouldn’t consider doing anything else.

This book had me turning pages so fast, my heart pumping and at times it was because of the steamy connection between Sensei/Raiden and Sass/Ayla and other times it was because of the intense things going on, which I won’t mention too much because I don’t want to give too much away.
Sensei and Sass are complete opposites, and that confuses him in a way. Because their connection is very strong. He longs for her when she’s not around, and when she is they can’t keep their hands off each other. Sass has a very bold personality, she just says it like it is and doesn’t take slack from anyone. And like Sensei says, she talks like a teenage boy. You can see how she got the name Sass. But she grew up without a mother, and two younger brothers to torment her. She works in her father’s Auto Repair Garage with all men and has had to learn to stand her ground. I love Sass!!! She is a great character!!! But Sensei doesn’t know what to make of her, but he’s drawn to her.
But with the Yakuza around, and his family hiding out at the club, he has got to stay focused. But no matter how hard he tries, it all comes back to Sass!!
Once again, we see the beauty of the brotherhood in this book. I love how well K E Osborn portrays this. How tight that bond really is, and how they are willing to die for each other. Plus we get a hint at who the next book will be about!! I can’t wait!!
I LOVED this book!!!! Between the love story and steaminess, and the level of action/adventure!! The book totally ROCKS!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
