Out Bad (Sinners or Saints Book 1) by Janice M. Whiteaker. This is the first book in the Sinners and Saints Series but its a lot like her Lost Boys Series and I LOVED that one. Its the story of Joe a ex high ranking biker gang member who has lots of bad stuff in his past. He left the biker gang and never looked back but not without burning some bridges along the way. He has guilt by the ton for things he’s done in his past but when he meets Gwen he knows no matter what he has to have her. Gwen is a sassy, hardworking some would say workaholic, beautiful woman who knows better than to get involved with a guy like Joe. Her sister Gabby just happens to be Joe’s best friend Heath’s wife and Gabby does her best to convince Gwen not to date Joe. Gwen finally has to tell her sister that she’s a big girl and she can take care of herself even though she’s not convinced. She doesn’t have the time for a relationship especially with someone with as much baggage as Joe. Joe’s also got some bad guys out to get him for leaving the club and the only way they know they can hurt him the most is thru Gwen. Will Joe and Gwen survive the Gangs attempt to make Joe pay? Read Out Bad to find out!
Out Bad ( Sinners or Saints Book 1) by Janice Whiteaker
I really love it when I find new authors. This book was a real good read. I found the author’s style to be quite refreshing. I found the characters to be very realistic and relateable. The book kept me glued to the pages.
I really like how the story isn’t predictable. The chemistry between Gwen and Joe is very electric. The way that their love story plays out is very realistic. The author has a good balance of drama and romance. I found myself routing for Gwen and Joe. I felt as though the characters just jumped right off of the page.I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
Out Bad (Sinners Or Saints #1) by Janice M. Whiteaker. I have read other books by this author and I enjoyed this one just as much as the others I have read by her.
At first, I was unsure of exactly how I felt about Gwen in the beginning but as I read and learned more about her history, I absolutely fell in love with her and Joe. They both had their pasts and thought they came out on the other side clear. Did they or will the past come back to haunt them and risk their future together?
First off I think Gwen is way too good for Joe. He’s kind of a baby about not having ever been introduced to her before, like is his best friend’s job to introduce him to all his in-laws. Secondly, I really didn’t like his line of thinking that Gwen could save him. That really put me off when I read the synopsis. It’s not a woman’s job to save the bad boy. She’s not his mother.
That being said, I went ahead and read this and it was pretty good. Gwen and Joe had pretty good chemistry and I was able to ignore how much of an emotional child Joe was. I get that he’s done terrible things and even though he’s paid the price, it haunts him. But his reluctance to really deal with those emotions bugs me.
Out Bad (Sinners or Saints Book 1) by Janice M. Whiteaker
Amazing new series! I really loved this book and once it hooked me I couldn’t put It down. It took a bit to get into the deep of it but the beginning, while slow, was much needed.
If you like motorcycle romances, this is a series for you. I cannot wait for more.
Out Bad by Janice M. Whiteaker was a delightful MC/Romantic Suspense. I love a story where the bad boy is trying to redeem some of his past choices and the woman who loves him anyway isn’t really looking for a relationship. The interactions between Joe/Gwen and Heath/Gabbi were funny and fun to read; loved how great friends/family they all were together. I would really love to see a book about how Heath and Gabbi meet and become this great couple.
I would recommend everyone to check out this author because you wouldn’t be disappointed how addicting her writing is. Can’t wait to see who will be next in this series…Niko!
Out bad is the start of a new series called Sinners or Saints series by Janice M. Whiteaker. And WHAT an amazing start to this series. You meet Joe, ex biker who wants to turn his life around. He continues to beat himself up for what he did when he was with an MC but he also tried often to make amends for his past. All things seem to change when he meets Gwen. Gwen, who also has her own issues from her past, is sassy, strong, smart, and beyond hardworking. The attraction between these two, is off the charts and they can’t even deny what is between them! But the question is, can these two look beyond the past and create a life together?
I have never read this author and I will say I will be reading more. The writing style and strong story lines pulled me in and I can’t wait to read more by this author and more in the series. I highly recommend this four star read!
Out Bad was a good 4 star read.
Joe first notices Gwen while out at the bar, when he asks his best friend about her he’s warned off. Which causes him to be curious as to why his best friend doesn’t want him around his sister-in-law.
I’m not into docile woman. I want one that will give me a run for my money.
Gwen has moved closer to her sister so she can spend time with her nieces. When she meets Joe there is something about him that she can’t get out of her mind. Only thing is, she isn’t looking for anything serious and Joe is beyond just a fling, he wants more.
Can Joe break down Gwens walls and get more from her? Can they have a HEA?
Gwen was a strong and sassy character. Joe was great he was an original bad boy who has turned a new leaf, he’s now sweet, caring and so much more. I quickly fell for him. These two has some very steamy moments. There are some unexpected twists and turns that added a great element to the story. I can’t wait to read more from this series. 1-click and get started today.
Out Bad (Sinners or Saints Book 1) by Janice Whiteaker is a wonderful contemporary romance story with a bad boy ex-biker who has spent several years trying damn hard to turn his life around. He is full of pain and angst, guilt and turmoil, longing and want and is really hard on himself with what he has done even though he has paid for it, it still doesn’t quiet the negative thoughts he has of himself . He wants to settle down but isn’t sure he is worthy for it as much as he longs to have love and a family. I really loved this character but I wish he would have stopped putting himself down as much as he did, sometimes it was a bit overkill. He is an alpha male who is caring and when he sees something he wants he doesn’t stop to go after it.
Gwen is one sassy and independent, hard working woman but she is living with the pain of loss. She is in a job where men think with their second head making her become someone she no longer knows, she has become hardened. So when a sexy domineering man sets his sights on her, she knows she should stay away but she cant and she doesn’t know who she is in the process.
Both characters have a lot to sort through to get to a healthy place in their relationship but will they survive the truth that is yet to be told?
I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to see what is next in the series.

A great read about determination. Joe hasn’t let anyone into his life lately due to his mysterious and dark past. He sees Gwen at a party and that all changes. He wants her but she is closed off and cold towards him. Can he break down her barriers and win her heart?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Joe determined to get what he wants but caring underneath or Gwen standing up for herself but vulnerable underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the cautious Heath or the supportive Gabbi
I loved the visual detusl throughout the novel like with the scenes with the party full of life and people and colour and sights and sounds so vivid it’s as if you’re actually there.
I liked the mystery with their pasts with little details revealed slowly to keep you reading to find out what they did. I liked their worries of trying to put the past behind them was powerful and emotive but sometimes had repetition which could be reduced. The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of the story and was easy to follow with names in chapter titles. The only issue I would raise is that these first person narratives often felt like they went off tangent into thoughts and were hard to follow. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars
