HELL’S KNIGHTS SYNOPSIS

Sex. Who really knows sex? I mean, we’ve all had sex, great sex even but when you get down to the details, how many of us actually see sex for the raw, primal act that it is?

I thought I knew sex. I’ve had sex. Heck, I’ve felt lust. Once, I’ve even felt love. I thought I knew exactly what sex was.

Until I met Cade.

He’s the meaning of sex.

He’s a biker.

He’s dangerous.

He’s powerful.

He’s dominant.

He wants me.

My world is about to change, for the better? I don’t know. But here’s my story, I hope you’re ready for it because it’s not the beautiful, heart wrenching story most people have to tell. It’s passionate, forbidden, morally incorrect and downright, fucking beautiful.

EXCERPT 2

“Fuckin’ love you, sugar. You know that, yeah?”

I nod. “Cade, I know that. I’ve known that for a while now. The thing is-”

“I want you to know how much.”

Stubborn man is cutting me off at the one moment I want to tell him I love him.

“I know how much, the thing is-”

“Sugar, you’re fuckin’ changin’ everything I am.”

“You’re changing everything I am too, that’s why I wanted to-”

“Sugar, fuck,” he growls. “Do you ever stop talkin’ for five minutes?”

“I’m trying to-”

“Sugar!” he says, tugging my hands. “Shut the fuck up!”

“Why?” I cry.

“Because I’m tryin’ to fuckin’ ask you to marry me.”

My entire world stops. I feel like I’ve been punched in the chest, but in the best possible way. He wants to marry me? Cade Duke – big, bad biker – wants to marry me? I feel my eyes burn with unshed tears, as a feeling of pure joy rushes through my body.

Review:

Okay, this is gonna be a short review so bear with me on this.  I loved this book and it was a great start to the series.  This book focuses on Cade, the VP of the club and Addison, the daughter of the president of the club.  Talk about two different people that hook up.

Addison had a crappy childhood that should have broken her and in some ways it did but she managed to come out on the other side.  If I had a compliant about her is that she did some really stupid and I mean stupid stuff that effected the club, and she is repeatedly told not to do them but she does it anyway.  She sometimes comes off as a spoiled brat but Cade is right there beside her.

Cade is one bad*ss biker.  I instantly liked him but keep in mind that there is plenty of colorful language that comes out of his mouth.  I loved his nickname for Addison, too.  It was sweet and when he gets all riled up around her…he just loses it.  😉

Great dialogue between them and while the sex was hot, it wasn’t too much.  Of course, the book itself and some of the subject matter is raw, gritty and somewhat cringe worthy but you definitely get your HEA with them.

But then there’s Ciara, the sister of his deceased wife. She’s beautiful and damned determined to throw herself into his life in hopes they can reform an old friendship, but Spike won’t hear of it, and Ciara refuses to give up.

EXCERPT 1

“No, I guess I didn’t. I wanted to, but then Cheyenne came in and you took a liking to her, so I didn’t bother.”

“I went to her, and I fell in love with her, but she wasn’t what I wanted for myself, Tomcat. I wanted you, but you wouldn’t give me a God damned inch.”

“You didn’t think of telling me?” I snap, crossing my arms. “You didn’t think that maybe you should have said something before you just ran off with Cheyenne?”

“What was the fuckin’ point? You couldn’t fuckin’ see it. I tried, fuck knows I tried, and yet you didn’t see me. I was sick of tryin’. Cheyenne threw herself on me, and I thought what the fuckin’ heck?”

I feel my body begin to shake. “I didn’t see it, Spike. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to, it was because I was so scared I would ruin everything if you knew how I felt.”

“Fuck, Ciara, I was constant with you. I picked you up every mother fuckin’ day, I spent every mother fuckin’ weekend with you, I was there all the time.”

“I know that!” I cry. “God, Spike, I know you were ok? I didn’t see it. I was young and I didn’t fucking see it. Then she came along and I stopped believing there was a chance. It was not just on me, or you, it was on us both. We both walked away without telling each other there was so much more to it. I know what I gave up, I know I passed you over to her, and I regret it every day.”

“I don’t regret it, Tomcat. I loved Cheyenne, and I don’t regret marrying her…bu-”

I get to my feet, hurt. His words are something I already knew, but it’s the way he said them. He grips my arm before I can spin away, and yanks me back down. I land harshly, and slap his hand away but his grip is too strong, and I can’t get my hand out of his.

“One fucking moment,” I spit. “One fucking moment can’t go by without her being better. One fucking moment, I’d like to mean a tiny bit more than her. You can’t fucking see it, can you? You walk around with those stupid fucking rose colored glasses on, unable to see anything she did. I never doubted you loved her Spike, I knew you did. I saw it. I lived it. But for one fucking moment I wish it was me.”

I jerk my hand out of his grip, and spin, getting to my feet and turning to walk off.

“It was you,” he yells, stopping me in my tracks. “I don’t regret her, Ciara. Not for a fuckin’ second, I don’t regret lovin’ her, I don’t regret marryin’ her. Cheyenne changed my life, she changed a part of me, but you, Ciara, were the one who opened my heart. You were the first one to claim it, and you were the one who fuckin’ tore it out of my chest the day you ran off. You never gave me a mother fuckin’ chance to explain myself to you. I woke up after we slept together, and you were gone. Couldn’t fuckin find you. It was you who took my heart, and you who fuckin’ broke it. She picked the pieces up when I couldn’t find you, and so I stopped fighting. Cheyenne might have had me in the end, Tomcat, but my heart was always yours first.”

 Review:

OMG…yes, OMG.  This book was all over the place but in a good way.  There is fighting against the hero and heroine.  Rough sex, kinky sex, misunderstandings, finding love again, revelations and a good old fashioned emotional read.

Spike and Ciara have a back history that is nicely woven in between their POV’s.  Yes, we get to hear both sides of the story.  I love it when an author does that.  You get inside both of their heads and it makes for a more emotional story for me.  The basics are this:  Spike and Ciara fell in love with each other when they were friends.  Ciara got spooked and ran.  Spike ended up marrying her sister in the end.  When that relationship ended in tragedy, Spike never forgave himself.

Ciara was a great heroine.  Yes, she could be stupid at times to put up with Spike’s treatment of her but I felt as if that was a defense mechanism that he put up so he wouldn’t get hurt again.  She never backed down from Spike and I believe that once she was able to break through to him, the story just picked up from there.

I liked their story a little more than Cade and Addison.  It was more emotional and I’m a sucker for the friends to lovers trope that Ms. Jewel wrote.  It was different but also emotional as well.

Overall thoughts:

I really liked the first two books in the series.  Ms. Jewel has a way with her dialogue.  Its rough, raw, gritty and while some people would think that it has a lot of errors in it, it supposed to be.  These are bikers; not billionaire’s so there speech is much different.  I hate when people don’t understand that when reading.  Grrr…

I will have to say that I liked how the series is progressing.  We still don’t get a true sense of the Club itself but with a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of Heaven’s Sinners, I think that book #3 will explain a bit more of the goings on.

If you like it hot, messy with emotions, this series is for you.  I highly recommend it but keep this mind…these characters make no apologies to who they are and what they will do for the people that they love.
