“What an awesome start for this new Wretched Soulz MC!”
“This storyline gripped from the very start and would not let go until it finished. Loved the dynamic that Storyteller has with Sheri! My thoughts were “Man this girl has balls!””
“Amazing start to a new series. Loved Story Teller and Sheri so much. Their chemistry was on fire!!”
“OH MY!!!! I could not put this book down!”
“This book will pull you in from the first page to the last page.”
“It’s been personally signed by the author and dedicated to her. Look.” She traces the words as she reads them out. “To Sheri, thanks for being a great fan. MariaLisa DeMora, MMM 23.” She glances my way and her eyes narrow. “How the hell did you get this? Are you certain you don’t know this Sheri?”
“Fuckin’ certain,” I growl, reaching to take the book from her. “I found it, okay?”
“Found it?” Her eyes widen. “You know what MMM is, right?”
I couldn’t give a damn. I just want to keep reading, but she’s intent on enlightening me. “It’s a big signing for authors of Motorcycle, Mafia and Mayhem romance.”
“Romance!” Iron snorts. “Why you reading that shit, Brother?”
I shoot him my finger. “Give it to me,” I demand, as Camilla seems to have taken possession of the book that I was enjoying reading.
Instead, she continues in a dreamy voice, “I wanted to go to the signing, but I couldn’t make it to Houston. But this?” She taps the signature page again. “This is a personal dedication by the author. It’s not something a woman would treat casually.” She squints at me. “She’ll be devastated to have lost it. A book like this is a prized possession, especially as the signing was only a couple of days ago. How the hell did you get your paws on it?” Her eyes narrow. “You steal it?”
I shift awkwardly, not comfortable with her accusation. “For fuck’s sake woman, I don’t need to steal a fuckin’ book. I found it, alright? At a rest stop in New Mexico.” I’m probably sounding more aggressive than I should, but I’m on the defensive, for some reason feeling guilty. “It was lying abandoned on the ground. Must have fallen out of her purse or something.” I think back and add, “There was no one around.”
She harrumphs. “I bet she went looking for it as soon as she realised she lost it.” Her reproving stare makes me react.
I did nothing wrong. I just saw a perfectly good book that looked interesting, lying around and took possession of it. “Finders, keepers,” I tell her, snatching the book out of her hands. Standing, I give up any thought of reading peacefully in the clubhouse.
Going back to the room where I’d left my bag, I start to slide the book into it, when guilt makes me pull it back out. Prized possession. Guiltily, I straighten the corner which I’d bent over to mark my place.
I snort at my action. Well, Sheri, whoever the fuck she is, had clearly been careless about keeping it safe. Her loss, my gain.
MY REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
There is so much to love about this book, this world, and these characters. It may be 292 pages, but it’s packed with so much!
StoryTeller, Jake is a nomad in the Wretched Soulz MC based out of Arizona. After he was patched in, and taking care of business, he hit the road and hasn’t looked back. Now after five years of being on the road, he’s called home to help with a situation. Not planning to stay in once place, he finds himself thrown into a woman’s life that he’s never met, only because his conscious won’t let him walk away. Now that he’s stepped into it, he can’t back out and he’s not so sure he wants to.
Sheri Secord is a loner, a woman that keeps to herself, lives with a roommate that she barely knows, and by her own description is boring. However, she’s an avid reader of Motorcycle Romance books and her favorite MC author is going to be at the Motorcycles, Mafia, and Mayhem event in Austin, TX, not far from where she lives. She decides to take a chance and go to the event and get a signed book by her favorite author, her biggest problem is that she has to overcome the fear of being in large crowds, but she’s sure she can do it.
I loved this story, and I loved how the connection of the MMM World is written into it. It was a perfect start to this world, and I can’t wait to read more of the books by the different authors. StoryTeller and Sheri have an unusual story to tell of their first meeting, and their connections, while almost immediate is a great story to read. The fact that StoryTeller shows up on his black steed to rescue the girl is a great start to a relationship. Even if said girl is skeptical about the man after what she’s been through. I loved the book and I love the characters. This was my first book by Manada Mellett, but I will be reading more of her Wretched Soulz MC books to come because these guys are just too good to ignore. I give this book a 5-star review.
