Grumbler!! I cannot say how much I have fallen for this man and am so happy he has finally found his path in Life!!
I wasn’t 100% sure how I was going to feel about “older” main characters but between Being Lost and Grumbler’s Rider, I am impressed. I have found I do not mind the character’s ages as long as it is a good read. Manda has not failed in her story lines for the San Diego chapter and I am completely looking forward to reading more of her MC books!

I’m too old to find love, my bike is all I need but in she walked and I could not resist.

Grumbler is set in his ways, he has been in the MC as long as he can remember and he has given his blood, sweat for the club and although all around him have old ladies he has never been one to go looking for one, until one day he gets the shock of his life and decides to give love a go.

Mary is a single mom, trying to juggle a wayward teenager who is determined to send her insane before her 18th birthday. Alicia’s new torture is to be a model, but Mary is not happy with her going alone as something does not seem right and how right Mary was. With the help of the handsome MC rider can they get themselves out of the mess they have got themselves in.

I love all of the series written by Manda Mellett and this does not disappoint, I loved the relationship between Mary and Grumbler as they seem like an unlikely couple but are so perfect for each other. Also, this is a great older couple story its not all the young people who can find love, the chemistry between was brilliant and the way the characters have been developed made them believable and relatable. The relationship also between Mary and her daughter was brilliantly written and in the end I loved how it all concluded.

I can’t ain’t wait to read the next instalment in this series.

What a great read. It has very thing you could want in a story! A grumpy old man and a mom with a teenage daughter. I was not sure where the story was going to go when the group meet for the first time but what a ride it was. Each page kept me engaged an turning the page to find out what happens next Thank you Manda for Grumbler’s story!

Once again, I have been utterly taken in by a biker story. You would think it would get repetitive, but Manda Mellett does not write the same love story twice. Love can happen even when you aren’t looking. This book has all the common themes I have come to love and expect from this author: Love, Complex Characters, Tight Family Bonds, and Plot Twists that make for quite the RIDE! (tehe, see what I did there?). Some of it was hard to read, but helps the reader understand the characters better. Clear the space on your TBR, cause you’re likely going to want to pick up the next.

Book Review: Grumbler’s Ride
Author Manada Mellette
FIVE STARS
Book 2 in the Satan’s Devils MC San Diego chapter does NOT disappoint. Grumbler is a mid to late 50’s man who has not had the best of luck in life. He has resigned himself to being alone for the rest of his life and he is ok with that.
Mary is in her late 40’s and a single mom. She has her hands full with her head strong daughter who is trying to find a place in the difficult life of being a teenager.
Grumbler is approached by a man who take photographs. This is how he meets Mary, her daughter is modeling and they are using Grumbler’s motorcycle as a prop.
This story is funny as well disturbing. Some of the things the photographer is into is very shady and NOT COOL.
I love the way the Satan’s Devils are able to take down the trafficking of persons. So far I am in love with this series.

Not all heroes wear capes. I enjoyed the complexity of the plot and the development of the characters. I admired the approach that Manda took in creating the main characters, the vulnerability of Grumbler regarding his age and how the opposite sex views him (this alpha male combating his insecurities). There are two sides to a coin; with Grumbler there is no difference; he is a badass who gets things done and on the other hand, he’s an absolute sweetheart when it comes to those he calls family. Can Mary be a more kick-ass understanding mom! I loved how she was portrayed in this novel. Go, Mary! There were certain situations in the novel that did not sit well with (unfortunately for some this is a reality); bless the heavens justice was served. Readers beware. I recommend this slow-burn intriguing page-turner.

Another great read by Manda Mellett that deals with some issues that teens face today. I like that she tackles the issues bringing awareness to them. I was not crazy about the female lead in this story. I realize she acted like a lot of people probably would act, but I just didn’t relate to her. The romantic relationship wasn’t my favorite as much as the parental relationship that develops – don’t want to give too much away. One of Manda’s talents is her development of relationships in the story, and she doesn’t disappoint in this one.

I get so lost in Manda Mellet’s story telling that I read her books in one sitting. The characters are amazing and deal with real life situations. This is Grumbler’s story. Grumbler decided to pimp out his bike to a photographer that takes pics for book covers. When he doesn’t get paid what he is owed he starts to dig into the photographer. What he finds opens a whole can of worms, I was not expecting.
Mary let her daughter model, but only if Mary goes with her. There she meets Grumbler, a gruff man whom she was quite attracted to. But would their paths even cross again?
Being in my late 40’s I rooted so hard for Mary and Grumbler. We may be older, but we aren’t dead!
Be aware there are trigger warnings, rape and of sexual nature. Very gritty story that I absolutely loved.

Grumbler’s Ride is the second chapter in the Satan’s Devils MC San Diego series, personally I enjoyed this second chapter even more then I enjoyed the first. I love that Ms. Mellett is writing more mature characters. The fact that she writes more mature characters gives the story a different take then if her characters where in their mid thirties. While this series has some scenes that could trigger some people it is still well worth the read. Ms. Mellett is slowly becoming one of my favorite authors she always seems to tackle sensitive subjects and handles them with immense care. The care she provides in her writing makes her books flow well and her series come together beautifully.

Ah yes, Grumbler, so set in his ways. I loved his character in this book, even if he is a little rough around the edges. We meet Grumbler when he meets a photographer whom wants to take pictures of his bike, and a monetary deal is made. Needless to say, that photographer is not what he seems to be, conning Grumbler of what is due. Mary and Alicia come into the picture and my heart! Mary lost her husband and trying to raise a 17 year old daughter on her own. Alicia is in a situation and Mary tries to be there for her daughter, something is not right and Mary senses it. Grumbler is there for both Mary and Alicia. Some twists and turns in this book (don’t want to give away to much), but at the end there is love between Grumbler and Mary. I love them together.
