Neil - Sybil Bartel - Blog Tour & Review

Today we have the blog tour for Neil by Sybil Bartel. We are so excited to share this fantastic new contemporary romance! Grab your copy today!

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.

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

Neil is the second book in the uncompromising series, although I read this book not having read the first and was able to follow the story with ease.  This was my first time reading anything written by Sybil Bartel, and overall I enjoyed her writing style.  This one is a difficult review to write as overall I really enjoyed this book, but the hero in particular left a little to be desired from my point of view.  
I found the heroine to be like-able and quite believable, but she is also naive at times and has frustrating moments in regard to her interactions with her ex.  Arial is a single mother, doing her best to raise her son, her ex is pretty useless and in and out of both her and her son's life and she keeps trying to believe the best in him even though he is a cheater and has a history of making bad choices. 
Neil is an Ex-Danish Military Special Forces operative, he is a complete alpha, strong and incredibly intelligent .  He is also cold, detached, arrogant and and has quite an abrasive personality.  Neil's character doesn't mince words, which I found off putting.  Neil only refers to Connor the heroine's son as the boy or your son, never using his name as he doesn't want to form attachments.  This form of identification really irritated me every time I read it.  
This book is told from the sole point of view of the heroine, Ariel which for me made it really difficult to form a connection and relate very much to Neil especially considering his monosyllabic speech patterns. 
I really enjoyed the action, drama and suspense of this book.  The twists and turns kept me enthralled with the plot.  I hope to read more of Sybil's work in the future. 

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.
