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: This book contains alpha heroes, offensive language, violence and sexual situations. Mature audiences only. 18+

NEIL is a full-length, standalone novel and is the second book in the Uncompromising Series.

review by



Action-packed; hot; dangerous!!!


review 1


  • I like the cover and the title. It fits the book. Neil is so dominant, that you don’t need anything else as a title. It’s sexy, but I’m still missing something and the chains throw me off some, that’s why I took out a few stars.
  • I have really enjoy the plot. It was a fast-paced, kept me guessing, wanting to know more, type of book.
  • The writing style is good, with no typo mistakes, cohesive and very relevant to the story.
  • The heat is on!!! 🙂 Really, if you want your love  sweet and tender this is not it. This is raw, scorching hot and very sensual!!! I love it!
  • The book was addictive, it was an easy read for me, in almost one sitting I’ve finished.
  • I have mixed feelings about the characters all the time, but I still felt compelled to finish and in fact, I had a hard time putting the book down.


Review 2


  • The characters, very confusing. Really, it’s hard to put down my thoughts here without spoilers.
  • Ariel should be a great kick-ass heroine, but she irritated me a lot and sometimes felt too easy, too needy, too prideful.
  • Neil… I don’t even know how to explain this. He was an Alpha with capital letters, but sometimes he seemed like a bully. A very dominant person must have the quality of communication or it feels off, and almost into the jerk category.
  • Didn’t I mention mixed feelings? I have like a lot of Neil but I couldn’t put up with his lack of communication skills.




I have enjoyed and I have felt weird out by this book. I gave a high rating, because at the end of the day, this is a very well written book that have played with my emotions enough to have me here, without words to explain what I’m feeling.

How can you be unable to put a book down and hate the characters most of the time? Worst, how can you hate the characters most of the time and love them sometimes?

Exaclty, I will continue reading this series, because I have really enjoy the concept of the series. I only hope for a better relationship with the characters in the future.

I believe if part of the book was with Neil’s point-of-view, I would have understood him and connected better with him. The problem was he was a big mystery, and he ended still being a big mystery. He was hot for Ariel, I could see that, even with the lack of communication, but I wanted to know what was on his mind to believe there was something extra from his part.

You MAY read this book because you enjoy a hot read; you SHOULD read this book because you have read book one of the series; you MUST read this book because you loved action-packed reads!!!

About Sybil Bartel

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.

To find out more about Sybil Bartel, be sure to follow her on Twitter (she loves to hear about your favorite book boyfriend!), visit her website, like her on Facebook or join her Facebook group Book Boyfriend Heroes for exclusive excerpts and giveaways.

    I really like how you give your review along with actual book synopsis. Sounds like a good past raced read but I hope it can be read as a standalone because I haven’t read anything by this author yet.
