Aria Taylor has always been told she wasn’t good enough. After one horrible night, Aria has had enough. She’s determined to lose the weight that people find so ugly.

Grant has proven himself time and time again, but his brother has placed his ass far away from the club. When he’s suspended as VP from the Chaos and Carnage MC, Grant is pissed. He knew Bull didn’t want him at the club anyway.

He likes the receptionist at the veterinary practice where he visits the dogs from the animal shelter. And pursuing Aria is a much more worthwhile use of his time. Everyone sees Grant as the playboy. He's considered a waste of space. Aria sees him differently though.

When their contact within the Cartel turns up dead, and the bodies start mounting, it's not just a threat to the club, but the town. Someone wants Carnage.

Grant is given a chance to take his brother’s place, to have the ultimate power, but will he take it? Will he sacrifice everything to finally have control? Is that what he wants? Will the town of Carnage burn like the club?

Aria Taylor has always been told she wasn’t good enough. After one horrible night, Aria has had enough. She’s determined to lose the weight that people find so ugly.

Grant has proven himself time...

Aria, I liked her A LOT from the very beginning of this book. She is feeling insecure, after her mother's continued snide comments about her size. She meets the troubled Grant, who is carrying baggage from a vicious father.
Their story is a long slow burn story with lots of emotion. He knows he wants her, she isn't so sure. Dogs bring them closer (Grant certainly loves his pooch) and as their relationship heats up outside activities slowly and surely help Grant recover from his childhood, Aria gets supported by him when her mum starts picking on her. So much to love about this book - emotional, family, pets, sexy times, love of family and two people who simply 'work' and support each other.

Another great book by this author. When Aria meets Grant her only thought was I am not good enough for him, Grant sets out to show her just how perfect she is! Then when someone starts tormenting her can he stop it and is it related to the club

Thank you NetGalley for the eARc. I absolutely loved this. I love anything by Sam Crescent but this particular book has made the top 5 of my favorites. I didnt read book 1 but i was able to keep up with the storyline. The ending made me extremely happy for this couple. I hated the mother and im glad she got what she deserved. Well done

Grant, I didn’t want to like you. I really, really didn’t.

Damaged Souls is the 2nd Book in the Chaos and Carnage MC series, the first being Size Matters. We first met Grant in Size Matters and I’ll be honest, I didn’t like him. So when I heard he was going to he the hero of the 2nd book, I was sceptical.

But Sam has done it, she managed to redeem him AND make me feel sorry for the poor man. I adored Grant by the end of the book. The way he fought for Aria not only with the club drama going on but with her mother and her own self esteem issues had me swooning. And how he was with Wanda (the dog) just ugh…the man has my heart.

Overall Damaged Souls is about just that. 2 damaged souls coming together and finding the happiness that they both don’t believe they deserve. It has all the drama, action and spice that you want in an MC Romance but it also has the gut punching angst and grovel that I’ve really come to love from Sam’s recent releases. It also has a great family element with Aria and her sister Isabella that was really heartwarming. I absolutely loved Damaged Souls and I 100% recommend this.

Oh and I really REALLY hope we get a Lidia book. She is honestly the best side character I’ve ever read. We stan Lidia!!!

I really enjoyed this book. Grant and Aria are two wounded souls who find each other. Throw in a MC club, a drug cartel, a few lovable dogs and you have a good story that keeps you interested from start to finish.

This book has it all. Characters you love and root for, drama between families, couples in love, and the MC club issues. I loved Grant and Ari so much and their love of dogs was perfect. Having a main character who isn’t model skinny is always nice and I loved how the story played out.

Aria is beautiful and curvy. Her mother has told her all her life that she was fat, ugly, and didn't measure up to her sister. She is a receptionist at a veterinary clinic and loves her job. One say in walks a gorgeous, tattooed biker. Grant was VP of the Chaos and Carnage Motorcycle Club until he is suspended. Grant is known all over town as being a playboy and he keeps asking Aria out. Aria doesn't understand and thinks he is joking because she hears her mother in her head saying ' nobody would want her because she's too big '. But Grant wants her and will do anything to convince her. When she receives a video of Grant talking to her sister, she believes he was really being mean to her and doesn't really like her. Someone is out to bring the town down and they take Aria and Grant rescues her. Grant loves her more than anything and will do anything to get her to forgive him?

I loved this story. Aria needed to tell her mother off years ago. She's beautiful but has no self esteem. Grant doesn't take crap from anyone and tells it like it is. Sex. Bikers. Fighting. Language. And happily ever after.
