Being Lost (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1) by Manda Mellett , is a great love story. A classic woman in trouble, man stops to help read. It is all that and more. Plenty of action and suspense. Lost is a man unsure of himself and in bondage to his past. Patsy and Lost together have certain aspects of their past they must deal with in order to forge a future. When we allow ourselves to be chained to the past we can never move forward. And sometimes the forward is such a rich adventure, it would be a shame to miss it. This story illustrates that. Be forewarned, there is much mature language in the story and some very mature situations.
Being Lost by Manda Mellett is the first book in the Satan’s Devils MC San Diego series. This is yet again the start of an amazing series by a brilliant author.
Every time I pick up a book by this author I know I am going to absolutely love it. This book has everything I have come to expect from her books – strong and engaging characters with an interesting story line to back them up.
The thing I liked the most about this book is that the author created such relatable characters who were also older. It isn’t too often you see an author try this and succeed and yet this author pulls it off with ease. I was instantly drawn to them and was sucked into the story. I found myself flying through this book and really didn’t want it end. This is another strong start and I am already looking forward to what else is to come.
Being Lost (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1) by Manda Mellett. Just when I think I have found my “favorite “ book, she goes and does it again!!!! Lost was amazing!!!! I absolutely love the San Diego chapter and I can not wait to get all of their stories. We knew Patsy’s back story for Ink and Beth’s book but to see her and Lost come together was great. I will wait patiently (not really) for the next book by Manda!!!! She has become one of my absolute favorite authors.
The Satan’s Devils world is probably one of the favorite series of books that I have ever read. They get better every time a new book is released. I feel like these guys are all a part of my family now…and I learn more about them as each book comes out.
Lost is the President of the San Diego club. The previous President did the club dirty and they have been trying to recover ever since. Lost is still unsure if he is doing right by all the members that rely on him.
Patsy has recently moved to San Diego to be with her son. They are starting over and no one is supposed to know who or where they are. When they find themselves in danger, Lost steps in to protect them.
Both Lost and Patsy have been burned by their exes in the past…and are both hesitant to start something. I enjoyed the fact that they were older and had life experiences that shaped their characters. Manda Mellett has, once again, written an amazing book that I thoroughly enjoy. I am looking forward to the next book!
This book, along with all the others I’ve read from Manda Mellett, are beautifully written and every character has great purpose. I think she brings out the best in her characters as she’s done with these two. In this book, we meet Lost and we meet Patsy, who unknowingly come into one another’s lives for a purpose bigger than the two of them.
Lost is the definition of his name as he blindly followed Snake, the late president of the MC. The problem with Snake was he was his namesake as well: He’d planned a mutiny under Lost’s nose as he never suspected anything. Lost knows his faults better than anyone else: He’s made mistakes, lost everything, and knows failure. That is until he meets Patsy, who for the sake of her adult children, needs to be protected and Lost is ready to step up to the plate to do what it takes. Lost ignores his gut to scare her off but he does have doubts of his own before he steps up.
Patsy believes she made the right choice to start over but now she has to step out to help her adult kids but she has to shield their identity until they’re discovered. Satan’s Devils are there in the knick of time to save the day. As an older woman and a more experienced woman, Patsy doesn’t need a man to rescue her but who is she to turn down help when she desperately needs it and she knows she has to face the fears she’s been running from.
In order to save Lost, Patsy has to instill confidence and a sense of worth into him so he can not only step up to protect her but to protect the MC as well. Again, I cannot get enough of this writer and her books!
Being Lost is the first book in Manda Mellett’s Satan’s Devils MC San Diego series. We have been waiting for it for a while now! I love that Manda is venturing out with all those spin- offs! I think the one we are still missing is the Las Vegas Chapter! What it also means, is that there will be so much more goodness coming our way!
In general we are so used to seeing all those young buff guys as the heroes in the MC series, dark and gloomy … it is not very often that we meet someone of Lost’s calibre and age and add to it Patsy and women of mature age will gleefully sit back and loose away some hours in their company! I also love how the writer creates these tangible connections between the mother chapter and the other chapters! Patsy’s daughter is Bethany, Ink’s Old Lady who we met in Ink’s Devil, book #5 in the Colorado Chapter series! Also, I absolutely love the brotherhood and loyalty and standing with all your brothers in the time of need and it also gives us an opportunity to get snippets from the lives of brothers we have met in the other books.
Lost is the prez of the San Diego chapter and his journey to this position has not been a light one … it is so often that he feels like he has been lost for a while now … Patsy has left his old life behind to keep her daughter and son safe and she thinks she is safe in San Diego but one’s past has a tendency of popping up when one does not want or need it and so happens also here … in ride the Satan’s Devils to save the day and off we go! You would think that it would be a fast paced, guns blazing kind of a story but you could not be further from the reality … it flows like a river on a warm summer day, leaving you feel just right!
Dear Manda, thank you for finally giving us San Diego chapter and please keep them’ coming!
Being Lost: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1 by Manda Mellett is another fantastic book in this new spin off series of the Satan’s Devils MC. And like wind therapy this book is great to settle back and get lost in. Manda is my go to girl for MC books and I am always amazed how she keeps track of all the characters and always makes these alpha men swoon worthy. This book, like the others, has hair raising and on the edge of the seat moments but when this band of brothers come together you know you are in safe hands. It was nice to see the characters were a little older than the norm as well.
Lost is the Prez of the club and a great in shape silver fox who still has the moves but he is content with life but still has doubts about his leadership. That is until he sees Patsy, now all he wants is someone to wrap in his arms and share his life with. But in true biker style nothing is ever that easy.
Patsy has unknowingly been singled out and her life in danger, now she must put her trust in the men of the MC to keep her safe.
This is one series that is timeless and could go on forever and if it does I will be right there with them.

I loved this book. This is a series I have loved from the first book I picked up. This author writes with creativity and her attention to details make you feel as if I am right there. I highly suggest reading this series as they are that good. In this story we get to see Lost’s story. He is a man that has lost everything at one time and failure seems to be part of his life. He finds himself in the prez position. But is he good for the club? One wrong decision could bring them all down. Then he meets Patsy. She is a woman who feels that she doesn’t need a man in her life but now she needs one for protection. This is where the MC club shows up at her doorstep. Will Lost be able to protect her and her family or is he just too lost to be the man she needs. All the characters are great in this story. Some we have seen before which is awesome to see them again. They are strong and supportive of each other. I loved the chemistry between Lost and Patsy. This is a fast paced story that is engaging and easy to read. I highly recommend this book and this author.

5 out of 5 stars
I loved reading the book Being Lost (Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1) by Manda Mellett. It is a story that had me hooked from the beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until the final page. It is a story that includes romance, suspense, danger, mystery, brotherhood, and family. I loved reading about the characters of Lost and Patsy. Lost is the Prez of the San Diego chapter of Satan’s Devils. He is also a man that has doubts about himself and is haunted by what he sees as mistakes from his past. How could he ever ask for someone to trust him when he doesn’t have faith in himself? Patsy made a painful decision in which she had to make a new life for herself. When danger appears so do the Satan’s Devils. She needs protection and to be kept safe. Will the one man who is Lost be able to provide both? What does the future hold for Lost and Patsy? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me turning pages to find out what is going to happen next. It also had my emotions going up and down the entire time. This is an author who knows how to write MC club books and this is just the next amazing example. I love reading about all of the characters in the Satan’s Devils club as well as those who interact and are part of their day to day lives. Other characters have evil plans and agendas that need to be stopped. Will they? This book had some twists that I didn’t see coming. This is a story that I would highly recommend reading.

All my life, it seems, I’ve made mistakes. Once, I lost everything. Failure seems to follow me around.
I didn’t spot what a snake Snake was—he had planned a mutiny right under my nose. Yeah, he did well when he appointed me as his VP. I followed him blindly, never suspecting a thing.
Now Snake is dead and I’m the prez. I still spend my days doubting myself, but I’ve got the whole MC depending on me. If I get it wrong, it won’t just be me who goes down.
Then I meet her, a woman who needs me to keep her safe. I should warn her to stay far away, tell her I’m not a man she should lean on. I’m not a person to trust when I don’t have faith in myself.
Choices, always choices. I thought I did right when I left everything behind to make a new life, choosing which of my two adult children now needed me the most.
We should have been safe in our new life—nobody knew who we were.
But we’ve been found.
Luckily, before danger strikes, the Satan’s Devils ride up to our door.
I’m no spring chicken. I’m not looking for a man in my life. But I need protection, I need help. It’s time to make a stand and not run anymore.
There’s only one man I can depend on to keep us safe. The trouble is, he’s Lost.

Manda’s life’s always seemed a bit weird, starting with a childhood that even today she’s still trying to make sense of, then losing her parents in the late teens. Going from the tragic to the bizarre, who else could be unlucky enough to have had two car accidents, neither her fault, one involving a nun, and another involving a police woman?
There isn’t enough space to list everything that’s happened to Manda, or what she’s learned from it. But by using the rich fabric of her personal life, psychology degree, varied work experiences, and amazing characters she’s met, Manda is able to populate her books with believable in-depth characters and enjoys pitting them against situations which challenge them. Her books are full of suspense, twists and turns and the unexpected.
Manda lives in the beautiful countryside of Essex in the UK, the area’s claim to fame being the Wilkin’s Jam Factory at nearby Tiptree. She can usually find jars of jam which remind her of home wherever she goes. As well as writing books and reading, Manda loves walking her dogs and keeping fit. She lives with her husband of over 30 years, who, along with her son, is her greatest fan and supporter.
Manda is thankful that one of the more unusual, and at the time unpleasant, turns her life took, now enables her to spend her time writing. Confirming, in her view, every cloud has a silver lining.
