From bestselling author Sarah Castille comes a scorching new series featuring red-hot, hard-riding bikers and the women who can’t help but love them…


Raised in a motorcycle gang, tough, beautiful Arianne Hunter has always dreamed of a normal life. But no sooner does she escape her father’s domineering grasp than she wakes up to find herself in a rival gang’s clubhouse—at the mercy of the dangerously sexy Jagger Knight.


The alpha leader of the notorious Sinner’s Tribe, Jagger Knight is all muscle, all biker, and all man. But somewhere inside this hard tattooed outlaw, Arianne senses a kindred spirit—and she can’t ignore their tempestuous attraction. Can she beat him at his own game in a revved-up blaze of glory? Or will their passion spark a war that’s the end of the road for them both?

I've read a lot of MC books (as well as books by Sarah Castille) and this was definitely one of the good ones. I will admit that I heard this book was a bit tame in comparison to some others that I haven't read, but for me, it was pretty dirty and dangerous. The Sinner's Tribe aren't necessarily the good guys, but they're not the bad guys either. So if you're looking for an MC series where all of the bikers are low-life sons of bitches, this isn't the series for you.

It was great how the book just jumped right off into the middle of the conflict. Castille wasted no time trying to build up the plot. As the story moved on, we were given background and history on all the players, but that was okay because without it, the story would have been confusing. 

I loved Arianne from the jump. Raised in a rival MC, the Black Jacks, governed by her abusive father, Viper, Arianne has developed a tough skin. I mean, elephant hide tough. Can't rattle this girl for shit. In situations where most women would be screaming and ducking for cover, Arianne is counting each bullet that she puts in her enemy's ass. It's great. But she gets knocked into a free fall the day she is captured by Jagger and the Sinner's Tribe. And that's when the fun begins.

Arianne thinks she's as good as dead, but Jagger isn't that kind of MC President. He doesn't hurt women, and he damn sure isn't about to be beating on Arianne when he'd rather be banging her. Their back and forth banter throughout the book was wonderful to read about because I loved Jagger just as much as Arianne. He had a softer side, but when it was time to stop playing nice, he got DIRTY. Again, great. I will say that their hot-and-cold relationship got annoying at times, but I knew it would end on the hot side, so I just sucked it up. It was all worth it in the end.

I liked some of the side characters too like Cade, who supposedly looks like Thor, which means he looks like Chris Hemsworth, which means he is HOT SHIT. I also liked Zane who acted as Jagger's conscience and told Jagger all the things he didn't want to hear but needed to know. Dawn, Arianne's BFF, was a hoot as all best friends should be. She was also once upon a time tied up with an MC, but we only learn the basic details in this book. I'm eager to read more about her and Cade, who totally got it on in Rough Justice. Their book is next and I'm sure it's going to be a ton of laughs.

This is my third Sarah Castille book and I guess that means I'm a fan. Seriously, I'll read practically anything she writes. If you haven't read one of her books, I totally recommend that you pick one up. I promise you won't be disappointed.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Sarah Castille, writes contemporary erotic romance and romantic suspense featuring blazingly hot alpha males and the women who tame them. A recovering lawyer and caffeine addict, she worked and travelled abroad before trading in her briefcase and stilettos for a handful of magic beans and a home in shadow of the Rocky Mountains.
