Out Bad (Sinners or Saints Book 1) by Janice M. Whiteaker – Review by Maura Harper

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was a little frustrating for me. It takes so long to get to the reasons why the MCs feel and deal the way they do. The events for both main protagonists are openly alluded to and we get to see their turmoil through their internal dialog.

“Woman love a hero almost as much as they love a man who is broken.”

Gwen is a strong independent woman who is running away from her past. Joe is a big bag biker who is NOT his past and is working towards redemption.

I will be reading the next book on the series

Out Bad by Janice M. Whiteaker is book one of the Sinners or Saints series. This is the first book I’ve read by this author but I really enjoyed the book.

This book is Joe and Gwen’s story. Both characters carry some pretty heavy demons from their past. Joe tries to redeem himself at every step. He wants to be worthy of a family and a good life. Gwen is a workaholic. She’s pretty sure her chance for a family of her own has passed. When Joe meets Gwen, he knows she’s just the motivation he needs to clean up his act completely. The only problem with demons is they usually come back for more.

This book was pretty suspenseful. I couldn’t wait to find out what was happening. I couldn’t put it down! I can’t wait to read the next book!

Out Bad is the first novel in the Sinners or Saints series by Janice M Whiteaker. This is my first novel by this author.

Joe is a former bad boy who had turned over a new leaf. He has a sweet and caring personality but because of his past mistakes he still beats himself over it, while also trying to find redemption.

Gwen is a sassy, hardworking, and stubborn woman who isn’t looking for a relationship just wanting to have fun and be casual. She also has issues of her own that she is trying to get away from.

While Joe is trying to convince Gwen that they can be more, his past returns and threatens the life and relationship he has found for himself. Will be able to protect Gwen?

I am really starting to love romantic suspense stories and this one really caught up attention. The chemistry and attraction between Gwen and Joe was off the charts. The emotion and turmoil coming off from each character. I just wanted them to find peace and be happy.

I am hoping there is more in the series because I would love to read more by this author.

Out Bad by Janice M. Whiteaker is the first book in the Sinners or Saints series and I’m excited to see what’s going to happen in this series. MC style books aren’t usually top of my list, mainly because I haven’t found a lot that are respectful towards women. I can’t say what the rest of the series will be like but it’ll it’s anything like this book I will be a devoted fan.

I love Joe! He is my current boyfriend and I don’t know if he will be replaced for a while. He isn’t perfect and has done so much put his past totally behind him and become a wonderful and successful man.

Gwen has her own past that she is still trying to get past. But the moment she met Joe she knew she had to try and move forward with her life.

I’m looking forward to following these two characters and meeting several others.

This book is hands down a must read for any fan of Whiteaker or any fan of good writing. This book is well paced, engaging, and has just the right combination of suspense and romance. It was an incredibly quick read, one which caught me by surprise on how fast I flew through the pages. Whiteaker is quickly becoming an automatic one click author for me. Riveting. One hundred percent recommended.

Out Bad by Janice Whiteaker is the first book in the Sinners or Saints series. This was a fantastic way to start a new series. It is gripping and utterly captivating immediately. You are drawn straight into the characters and everything that is going on with them. The fact that they both seem to have secrets in their past just adds to the intensity.
The story has a great rhythm to it as well. The author knows exactly when to shake things up and exactly when to keep them nice and steady. Without even realising it you will find yourself flying through this book in no time at all. I always enjoy this authors work and this series seem like it will be no exception at all.

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!

Out Bad is the opening chapter to Janice M Whiteaker’s Sinners or Saints series. What an opening it was! I cannot wait to see what comes next and I absolutely love how it also connects to her Lost Boys MC series! I have read EVERY SINGLE BOOK she has written and I can only say that she gets better with every book and every series she releases and when she finishes a series I feel grief as I do not want to let go!
Out Bad is the story of Joe and Gwen. Both of them carry heavy heavy burdens and their demons seem at times too strong to be conquered! Joe hopes to redeem himself with every single act, he hopes that he will meet a woman that he has something to offer to and he will be able to build a life and family he can be proud of. Gwen I a stubborn workaholic who believes that any chance for her own family is gone and she only role she will every play is the auntie to her sister’s daughters …
The writer gives us an emotional and suspenseful story that keeps you biting your nails and I feel that I got so much more out of it because I had read the Lost Boys MC stories before I picked up Out Bad! I cannot wait to see what direction the writer will take this series!

This was not my first read by this author and I loved it as much as any other I have read. I loved Joe and Gwen. Both had pasts that made them who they are today and their inner demons caused them to question a lot at the beginning of this story, but the more I read the more I fell for them completely. Then once again like so many other books I’ve read I found myself screaming at them…Just open up, it will make your life so much easier!! Of course they don’t..Noone ever listens to me! LOL

I loved how this book flowed, I read it in one sitting and was shocked that I had finished so quickly. The twists were placed perfectly and Gwen became my hero towards the end, She actually cracked me up with her inner dialogue and her reaction to it all directly afterwards LOL

I can not wait to get the next in this series in my hands and I also can’t wait for the next in the Lost Boys MC series, I loved that that was mentioned at the end of this one.

This author has become an auto one click for me

Awesome!

This wasn’t a favorite at the beginning. There was too much inter thinking and over thinking. I can see why the author did this but it got old for me fast. All the I’m not good enough or I want to be better thoughts. Some are fine but too much just becomes mind numbing. This is not to say I didn’t like the book because I did. The characters were very secretive but I enjoyed them. The dynamic between Heath/Gabbi and Joe/Gwen was fun. The teasing and advice were great for the story. Heck even Niko, the plumber apprentice, peaked my interest.

Joe is sweet. He tries every day to redeem himself for or past. It was interesting how he tries to show Gwen all that he can do for her. Make her need him…want him….love him. I loved the whole farmhouse idea. He really seemed to see what he wanted. Then do anything to go after and acquire her. He is probably the nicest, sweetest tough guy out there. Is Joe a Sinner or a Saint?
