goodreadsThey say opposites attract.

In my world that isn’t a good thing.

I did everything I could to escape the motorcycle club I grew up in when I turned twenty-one.

It wasn’t about fear, or betrayal, or even lack of love.

I just needed my own life.

I had to know how it felt to stand on my own two feet without their protection.

Then I met Diesel.

Mysterious, dark, with eyes that screamed to be understood.

From the second I met him, I knew I needed to be in his life.

There’s just one problem – he’s a member of a different motorcycle club.

Two things that should never be combined.

Yet I can’t stay away. No matter how hard he pushes. I can see beyond his mask.

I need to know who he is and I’ll overcome any obstacle to be in his life.

A friendship is born, followed by an epic love.

Our relationship is forbidden.

But I’ll do anything to be in his life.


My review

My review on Goodreads

The MC Sinners Next Generation series, although it has a connection with motorcycle club, it is only in the background of all the stories. More or less. But always talks about how children of parents who are firmly rooted in the club deal with it. And they are doing this very differently.

“The universe had a plan, and it seems everyone is out to try and take that away.”

Mercedes is tired of life as MC brat. She loves her family and the club, but can’t wait to leave for college, where she will be able to be more independent and make friends with people outside the club who won’t judge her after her connection with MC Sinners. Before leaving, she went to a concert with a friend, where she had quite unexpected interaction with the singer. She thought about him not once since then, so when she saw him on the campus was amazed and excited. Not long.

Diesel is a arrogant prick. He hides behind the facade to keep people away. He is popular and has a girlfriend who keeps everyone at bay. He loves to play music and is struggling with the expectations from his family. He doesn’t want that life and doesn’t expect anything good for yourself.

“You’re the kind of light that could fix my dark, but I can’t let that happen.”

Diesel’s girlfriend Maxine isn’t happy with the presence of Mercedes, who is not afraid to stand up to her. But Mercedes doesn’t get scare. She sees something in Diesel, even when she learns that their friendship is completely forbidden. He is the son of another MC, what should be a deal breaker, but she doesn’t care. Along with her sassy and funny bickering, she makes her way through his walls.

“I don’t . . . I don’t know if I’m doing it right.”
“Being you is doing it right, baby.”

This part connects for us two MC series from Bella Jewel: The MC Sinners and Jokers’ Wrath MC. A huge delight for fans! It is something that for me was fantastic. Have an insight not only into one MC family, but also the other (especially that I read Jokers’ Wrath series), and see how their families live years later, when their children enter adulthood, it is brilliant feeling. Something for what I love to come back.

I really liked how the story developed and their growing friendship and then relationship, but still… why only 3 stars? Because I’m not a fan of randomness in the story. And here, unfortunately, is a little bit of that. I also struggling with the fact that the main character doesn’t do much when the heroine was bullying by his girlfriend at the beginning. And it was a bit teenage drama. He redeemed and their relationship developed great, but the fact remains. Although I love the interactions between them and her constancy in being his friend. It was fun!

“D – Stop texting me.
M – You’ll come to love it, possibly even need it to survive.
D – No, I won’t.
M – You’re such a good friend. I’m so glad we had this talk.
D – You’re a pain in my ass.
M – I miss you too.”

Finally we have also some action related with clubs and it was exciting to see how it’s took place. I even wish there were more of this type of action. Overprotective father and club stuff are cool.

I very like the idea for the story and the entire series. I repeats again, this is not a standard MC book, so do not expect it here. It it just story of two MC brat, who must make a life in reality that is not known for young people as they age. I certainly will continue this series because I’m curious how the future will work out for the next characters, which I could already know quite well through these two books.

If I’d recommend? Yes. If you like New Adult books with hate/love relationship with MC background it might be something for you.
