I really liked this book, it’s a great intro into the world that i can only describe as: if Hades Hangmen series collided with Unsainted series in one epic MC plot with step-brother/brother’s best friend.

The plot was super interesting to me because I couldn’t predict any of the twists or what the build up was leading to which gave me major KV Rose vibes and I’m a sucker for anything she writes. I think the future of these characters are bright especially because of the mystery created here and hopefully the world will build with them when their stories end.

I think the relationship between Jaeger and Genni was so dynamic and totally unexpected and by far the best thing about this book even if the relationship was toxic. I’m never a fan of love triangles but especially when I have a clear ship I’m rooting for and the male mc in my ship is broody and dangerous and toxic. Que Maverick and Eli (again anything KV writes I eat up). So naturally I responded most to Jaegar.

Genni was so relatable throughout the story and honestly one of my favorite female characters I’ve read about in a while. Her thoughts felt real and consistent throughout the story she didn’t have to bend out of character for fit the plot.

The plot itself felt thought out which is sometimes rare for dark romance but I think C.A. Rene definitely planned the plot and has a future in mind for the story.

If I had to pick my favorite moments they’d be when Jaegar acknowledged how much Genni annoyed him but how much he loved her like a little sister…and even a little more. (This trope is one of my favorites and it served in Dragon Slayer)

Plot 5/5 | Characters 4.75/5 | Romance 1/5 | Spice 5/5 | Writing 5/5

Holy Hell! What a ride! My entire life disappeared as I got sucked into one of the best MC books, I have ever read. Don't say I didn't warn you when your laundry and dishes pile up and your nights turn to morning when this book engulfs you. This is my first C.A. Rene novel and I wasn't sure what to expect but I am so happy that I picked it up. The reader is sucked into the dark and delicious world of motorcycle clubs, vendettas, grudges, backstabbing, secrets, lies, brutality and, lots and lots steamy skin-on-skin. The plot was suspenseful, exciting and although there were a couple predictable moments, there were many surprises and the book leaves off with a fantastic cliff hanger. It was less of a "WTF just happened?!," cliff-hanger and more like a " HELL YEA! I can't wait for the next book!" ending.

The reader follows Genni through her growth and life as an MC princess. Her character starts out as so naive and a little dumb but we see her grow (by literally go through hell and back) and become the strong leading FMC badass she was always meant to be. Loved her by the end.

I loved the multiple POV so we also get a glimpse into the opinions of the males that come in and out of her life. There are many love attractions for her and the only reason I am not giving this novel the full 5* is because I am not a huge fan of insta-love and there seems to be a little too much of that going around. With certain characters, it is understandable but literally almost ever male she meets ( save he father), wants to get down and dirty with her and most want to pledge their life to her- and for me, that is just a tad bit too unrealistic. Still, that didn't prevent me from loving the hell out of this book and still rounding up to 5*. As for the males, *fanning myself* I do declare they are yummy! Give me Malik with a side of Diego any day!!

If you enjoy and motorcycle club novels that are both brutal and delicious, this is the book for you.

* Thanks so much to Netgalley for giving me a free ARC of this book. My review and opinions are freely given and entirely my own.*

Couldn’t put it down, it’s not for the faint of heart. Geni is the President of the dragon slayers MC daughter, when her step brother is made vice- president he expects to move up, when he over hears a conversation, that changes his life and Genni’s to, not necessarily for the good.

This book was phenomenal, I had so much intrigue with the characters that it was hard to put down. The storyline was solid and had me on the edge of my seat, while the characters had a lot of growth. I cannot wait to continue this series!!!!!

It was a little different from my usual read but overall I enjoyed it. It had plot, character depth, decent world building and enough action to keep the story moving.

The writing in this book was phenomenal. I would never believe this was the author's debut novel. The writing style has such a perfect flow with a great combination of dialogue and internal monologues. I also loved the way the plot unfolded, Beautifully written with good characters and dialogue. It's a very detailed book with interwoven characters with good character development. The driving force behind this though is the story, it moves effortlessly and is so engaging
