Out of Time
by Beth Flynn
Out of Time is the followup book to Nine Minutes.  Nine Minutes was one of my favorite reads of 2014, and I have been anxiously awaiting this one.  Even the Synopsis is crazy
They thought with his execution it would all be over.
They were wrong.

The leader of one of South Florida’s most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs has been put to death by lethal injection. Days later, his family and friends should have been picking up the pieces, moving on. Instead, they’ve been catapulted into a world so twisted and dangerous even the most ruthless among them would be stunned to discover the tangled web of deception, not only on the dangerous streets of South Florida but all the way to the top.

In this gripping follow-up novel to Nine Minutes, Out of Time takes readers from the sun-drenched flatlands of 1950s Central Florida to the vivid tropical heat of Fort Lauderdale to the halls of Florida’s Death Row as we finally learn the gritty backstory of Jason “Grizz” Talbot and the secret he spent his life trying to conceal.

Not even Grizz’s inner circle knows his full story—the tragedy that enveloped his early life, the surprise discovery that made him the government’s most wanted and most feared, and the depths of his love for Ginny, the tenderhearted innocent he’d once abducted and later made his wife.

Once Grizz’s obsession and now the mother of his child, Ginny has spent years grieving the man she’d first resisted and then came to love. Now remarried to Tommy, a former member of the gang, the pair a spent more than a decade trying desperately to live a normal existence far from the violent, crime-ridden world they’d once carved out on the edge of the Florida Everglades. For Tommy, especially, the stakes are high. Desperately in love with Ginny for years, he’s finally living his dream: married to the woman he never thought he could have. But even with the façade of normalcy—thriving careers, two beautiful children, and a genuinely happy and loving marriage—they can’t seem to put the past behind them. Every time they turn around, another secret is revealed, unraveling the very bonds that hold them together.

And with Grizz finally put to death, now Ginny has learned secrets so dark, so evil she’s not even sure she can go on.

Will these secrets tear their love to pieces? And how far will Grizz go to protect what he still considers his, even from beyond the grave?
Out of Time is book 2 in the series and is definitely not a stand alone.  It does answer a lot of questions, but it also creates more!  There will be a book 3, so things are not tied up at the end of this book.  
We get a ton of insight into all the characters in this book, especially the younger years of Grizz and Grunt.  I loved that this book jumped between POV's.  We got a lot of Grunt's POV from Nine Minutes, which gave me a lot of insight into his feelings for Ginny.  It also jumps time frames as well, the book spans a good 50 years.  So much happens in this book!!

This one blew me away, just like Nine Minutes did.  So much happens and I wasn't sure who was good and who was bad, and what was going to happen next.  The end in INSANE!!  It is definitely a cliffhanger, and I cannot wait for the next one.  If you read Nine Minutes, you absolutely must read this one.
