Publisher's Summary

Honor, courage, and commitment: three things that Jesse Carter has lost.

A former marine, Jesse used to stand proud of his achievements and live by the code. But when circumstance made him question everything he believed in, those most basic values didn't feel so important after all.

Sex, lies, and the Knights Rebels: three things that Jesse Carter has found.

Reborn into a brotherhood not so different from the one he left behind, Jesse finds it all too easy to block out his past and claim the role as the Rebels' fun-loving player - until he meets Bell.

Shy, awkward, and with troubles of her own, Bell Johnson is no stranger to hiding her pain. When Jesse forces himself into her life, she's at risk of her defenses crumbling. Does Bell have the strength to survive Jesse and his demons, or is she fated to become another casualty in the self-destruction of Jesse Carter?

Contains mature themes.

    "River does it again!"

    I admit I love getting lost in my books, weather it is contemporary or classics , but this series is my guilty pleasure! Only twice In my life have a set down a book to cry, reading Bronte's Jane and the second my beloved Heathcliff- but Today marks a third time! The harsh words of Jesse's struggle after his father funeral made me have to put this one down- the unrequited love he allowed Bell to feel pushing her away....it just killed me. I love River's ability to drawn you into each characters pain and joy at the same time; the way she tells a story about societal issues through tales and struggles- well, I am impressed at her skill. I can't wait to read the story of Beau and Mack next!

    "3.5* ENJOYABLE.... BUT SADLY NOT ONE OF HER BEST"

    At the start Jesse wasn't a particularly loveable character.... haunted by his abusive childhood and a mission gone wrong so his only way to smother the guilt he feels, and the memories that haunt him so vividly, is drink and copious amounts of willing women. Until he met Bell and he tried so hard to get a grip on his anger and change for her but no one could stop the downward spiral that he was free falling into..... and then he crossed the line that changed everything. Jesse was a typical Alpha Biker..... sharp commands, dirty talk, very possessive and sexy but underneath it all he was just an ex-Marine suffering from PTSD and he was slowly falling apart.

    Bell is a Nurse, she's 23 sexy, shy and still a virgin living at home sheltered from harm because her younger sister Paige was kidnapped and, for 6 years, they've never given up hope. Her last chance is Jesse and The Knights Rebels who have connections so she asks for their help.... but she is instantly drawn to the brooding bad boy Jesse but his usual flirting doesn't seem to work and they get off to a bad start, however, it's not long before he's brutally telling her to bend over. Everyone welcomes her into the MC and sympathizes with her plight and they promise to do what they can. However, it's the moody, out of control Jesse who tries the hardest but unfortunately he's now sunk into the abyss of despair and self-hatred over the past and how he's fkd up badly with Bell leaving more heartbreak and regrets. He gets so bad that the MC have to take control before it's too late for him and they're forced to isolate him. Luckily his brothers have got his back, care and want him to win Bell back.... but Bell's not playing - she was hurt, humiliated and devastated by him however a lot of positives have come from it. In Bell's case absence doesn't make the heart grow fonder but how much sucking up is Jesse prepared to do to make things right with Bell and for how long?..... well, as much as it takes and for as long as it takes. And then Las Vegas happened.... and Jesse pulled off a miracle regarding Paige.

    This was enjoyable but their connection was hard and harsh at the start.... pure lust in action but in the end, when Jesse's torment was so bad, I really felt for him... even if he came across as a thoughtless arrogant ass. Bell's character was weak in the start but she eventually grew a pair and manned up in the end by not taking Jesse's bullshit anymore. But as a pair I didn't feel the chemistry or connection, he was hot then cold towards Bell and she put up with it until Jesse's spectacular and devastating meltdown. There were a group of Old Ladies but no angst with Club whores at all.... the angst came directly from Jesse and Bell along with a bit of tension from a rival MC. Dual POV's and good narration.

    Worth a credit? Yes it was still entertaining and enjoyable, but the romance was toxic and, IMO, it lacked the usual MC feel and it could have done with a few more descriptions to each scene. I've loved The Knight's Rebels so this has saddened me to only give it 3.5 stars.

    This novel is my favorite, of this series, so far. I would suggest having kleenex handy. There are so many touching scenes, in this book. Definitely worth a credit!

    "Excellent story"

    This entire series is great. I listened to this book out of order, last. I was apprehensive due to Jessie's lifestyle with women, I don't like a love interest being deliberately hurt by a womanizer. To my relief, that wasn't the case at all and I was so glad I gave this book a chance.
    All of the characters in this entire series are respectable and honorable, and the female characters are equally strong and independent.
    Entire series is well worth a listen, you will not be disappointed.

    Story
    "Ok, not great"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Bella's character made me cringe when she apologized to Jessie for being a virgin. WTF idiotic


    Would you be willing to try another book from River Savage? Why or why not?

    Maybe


    What three words best describe Joe Arden and Lidia Dornet ’s performance?

    Average but serviceable


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Jessie had/has zero compassion for Bella's feelings. Made me dislike him and couldn't like him after that
