— BLURB —

A twist of fate threw us together…

Gypsy—

I’m a Devil King; loyal to no one but my club, until she comes along and tests everything I thought I believed in.
When I do a favor for my imprisoned ex-president’s ol’ lady, I come face to face with the one-night-stand that’s haunted me for three years. She pulled a disappearing Cinderella act on me, vanishing with the dawn. I searched high and low for her, and now that I’ve found her—she’s the definition of off-limits. She’s an MC princess—my MC’s princess. And even if her father no longer runs things, she’s still forbidden with a capital F.
Tell that to my traitorous body that reacts every damn time she gets within sight of me.
They say no good deed goes unpunished, and I’m learning this golden haired beauty could be the death of me.

Though our chemistry blazes, every second I spend with her risks the brotherhood we’ve just repaired.

Tess—

I’ve never wanted anything to do with my father’s filthy MC, The Devil Kings. With daddy dearest in prison, my mother is falling apart. Her struggle with anxiety, drugs and money problems drag me back from the independence I crave. She needs my help and my father holds the key—literally.

But when he insists I get him information on the Devil Kings in exchange, I’m thrust into a world I want no part of. My father may be their EX-president, but I’m still considered an MC princess.

When my mother pulls in a favor and arranges an escort for me down to the prison, he walks in—a patched member of the Devil Kings MC—and a memory from a one-night stand we had three years ago.

But there’s a reason I ditched him the next morning; I want nothing to do with men like my father. Gypsy is everything I need to steer clear of—he’s an outlaw, a Devil King, dangerously sexy and loyal to his club.

As my mother’s world falls apart, my choice becomes clear.
But how do I choose between saving her and betraying the man I love?

— MY REVIEW —

Ahhhhh! I loved reading this book! 😍😍😍

SOA_Jax_Rides

I’m just gonna say it straight out —

✔ Amazing storyline.
✔ Amazing characters (and mind you, oh so hot!) *phoaarr!*
✔ Amazing world building.
✔ Amazing secondary characters (Hayley is a hoot and half. I love her!)
✔ Amazing development.

Just fucking AMAZING! I wish this series didn’t have to end but I’m glad it ended with an absolute banger! I only wish this book was a little longer. I really didn’t want it to end.

Tess and Gypsy are quite a pair. A perfect fit. I thought no other Devil King could top Reno but I think Gypsy is a definite contender. I will for sure grab a paperback of this (and the other books in this series).


“All my life I’ve sworn I wanted nothing to do with my father’s MC. And then you come along.” — Tess

A must read for fellow MC romance lovers. Nicole James has done it again. She’s effortlessly gotten my attention well within the first chapter and followed all the way through with a strong plot, chemistry between her hero/ heroine, and some good ol’ suspense added in.

Nothing faltered. The pacing was steady and there wasn’t a damn moment that I didn’t soak up!

Some absolute highlights to look forward to:

Tess’ best friend Hayley! 😄 She is without a doubt THE BEST friend any girl could have. Not only is she upbeat, hilarious and 100% supportive, she is for sure a ride or die type of chick! 👊 She adds an uplifting element to the story and a nice contrast to the usual gritty world of an MC.


“I’m pretty sure it’s in the BFF rulebook. Accompany your friend when she’s about to do stupid, dangerous shit. It’s right after Don’t let her date a biker.” — Hayley

Appearances from the club is a given — but most importantly characters from the previous books like Rusty and Reno are present, and brotherly banter strong as ever! 

But what screamed at me was the visualization of the entire world. The way James has described her characters, from their physical appearances to their personality traits was so vivid, I could almost picture them as real-life people. By giving us past glimpses to how the club has grown and evolved since the past James has expanded her already existing world of the Devil Kings MC.

Tess and Gypsy’s forbidden (hmm.. “forbidden” might be too strong a word. I should say it’s more of a don’t-even-go-there) romance was the shit! Excuse my potty-mouth for this review but it was needed to express my feels! Lol. 🔥 They’ll have you invested and rooting for things to pan out for them.


“Can’t promise you there won’t be bumps in the road, but I can promise you a hell of a ride.” — Gypsy

Gypsy is the right balance of alpha male and gentleman. He’s strong, dependable, but not overly domineering like a lot of stereotypical alpha males. He stands out from the crowd just with his presence alone. He was caring and sweet (even before anything serious happened between him and Tess). I liked that he wasn’t pushy either with what he wanted.

Neither he or Tess are perfect people yet together they’re stronger, better and all round happier. 

Tess is spunky, feminine and confident in herself, but when she’s vulnerable, Gypsy is there to pick her up, keep her thinking positively and just makes you wanna swoon. You’ll wish it was you he was giving those soothing hugs and kisses to… trust me! (And FYI, anyone willing to go to WB Wizarding World, gets bonus points from me!)

Totally likable characters. There wasn’t a single moment where either one of them annoyed me with their antics — because there weren’t any! (But that’s not to say there isn’t any drama. There is!) 🙌

Ugh. Just go read it! It doesn’t disappoint! The entire series doesn’t disappoint! *flails arms*

This book is another phenomenal example as to why I consider Nicole James a queen of MC romances. She always gets you suckered in by the blurb and hot ass cover, then when you actually read the book, it exceeds any expectation you may have. I love the way she writes and if you haven’t read any of her books, then I highly recommend you rectify that, pronto!

RATING: ♥♥♥♥½
