Out Bad is the first book in the Sinner or Saints Series by Janice M. Whiteaker. I have really loved Ms. Whiteaker’s BIG series, so I was excited to explore her other works too. This is a great contemporary romance with alpha male, reformed bad boy, and Biker/MC elements to it. There is angst, guilt, pain, inner turmoil, drama, and emotion.
I really did feel for Joe. He is such a sweet and caring bad boy turned good. He did frustrate me at times with his inner dialogue and over thinking and all the over analyzing that he did. He really beat himself up for his past mistakes and spent a lot of time trying to make amends. I understand that he was looking for redemption, but the inner ‘bashing’ got a little much at times. Gwen was such a strong, independent , hardworking, smart, and sassy character- but that’s not to say she didn’t have her own issues she was dealing with. Joe set his sights on her and was determined to find a way to make her his. She was only looking for a ‘goodtime’ and was determined to keep things strictly casual. Will he find a way to get her to give him a chance? What happens when the past returns and threatens everything?
And after reading this book, I am excited to not only continue the series, but to find the connection to the Lost Boy MC series which I will dive into asap!
Thank you, Ms. Whiteaker!
