I rescued Mariana. I wanted her.
I couldn’t have her. Mariana doesn’t need a man like me in her life. A man who rides with an MC.
When she comes up against her most powerful enemy, Mariana needs someone to help. Why do I feel this draw that it should be me?
Why do I care?
Why do I feel this overriding need to save her? To sacrifice everything. Even marry her.
I’ve been so careful. Done everything right. Obeyed every law. Given up my chance to be with the one man who intrigued me.
Despite everything I do they catch up with me.
I’ve no one to call on but the half Navajo who’d come to my rescue. Would, could, he help?
The man I only saw once before they put me behind bars.

OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES
After commuting for too many years to London working in various senior management roles, Manda left the rat race and now fulfills her dream and writes full time. She draws on her background in psychology, the experience of working in different disciplines and personal life experiences in her books.
Manda lives in the beautiful countryside of North Essex with her husband and two slightly nutty Irish Setters. Walking her dogs gives her the thinking time to come up with plots for her novels, and she often dictates ideas onto her phone on the move, while looking over her shoulder hoping no one is around to listen to her. Manda’s other main hobby is reading, and she devours as many books as she can.
Her biggest fan is her gay son (every mother should have one!). Her favourite pastime when he is home are the late night chatting sessions they enjoy, where no topic is taboo, and usually accompanied by a bottle of wine or two.
Joker’s Fool is the eighth book in the Satan’s Devils MC series by Manda Mellett. This is a m/m romance and was well written with what I can only assume are true issues when coming out. How I missed the first seven I don’t know but if I had to pick one to be introduced to this Motorcycle Club this was a great one. It can be read as a standalone thankfully but I’m interested in the stories of the others is this club.
Joker had a horrible and tragic childhood and carried the scars into adulthood. Those scars built a strong wall between Joker and everyone else until he gets to know Lady and very slowly he starts to allow Lady in.
I can’t imagine the struggle of not only realizing you are guy but accepting that you’re “different” and that some people may not like or accept you for that one reason.
I truly loved this book and I hope to get caught up on the series at point and look for new books in the future
Review by @rlrankin
Joker’s Fool was a great 5 star M/M read and is book 8 in the Satan’s Devils MC.
We jump from past to present as Joker remembers his childhood memories.
Joker has a secret that he’s keeping from his MC brothers. We get a deeper look into Joker’s childhood and his struggles he went through at home. Kind of breaks your heart, I had a few teary eyed moments.
Lady helps Joker realize that there is nothing wrong with him and that they can be happy with who they are and who they love. Lady had a very different upbringing that was supportive and very opposite of Joker.
Can these two have a HEA? How will their brothers react to the truth?
Manda really pulled me in with her writing. My emotions were all over the place, hate, fear of discovery, pain from past, and so much more. Joker had me right from the first time I met him in the series, and getting to know his story was something I couldn’t wait to read. I’m glad that Lady was there to love and help Joker. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. This can be read as a stand alone, I definitely need to go back and catch up.

Joker’s Fool is really the seventh book in the series of Satan’s Devils MC by Manda Mellett. This can be a standalone story but once you read this book you will go back and read books 1-6. Mellett has an interesting way to make all of hers interconnect and will even go over something that may have happened in one of the previous books without giving any detail away from the story. This story is definite page turner, once you start you really cannot stop. This book really talks about loyalty and trust. These two concepts are difficult because people break others loyalty and trust at a whim. The story of Joker and his horrific childhood. His story brought me to tears and a show him as a different light. Lady takes Joker and show him that there are people who will stand up for you. Will Joker learn that not everyone is out for you? Will Lady and Joker’s relationship survive?

Joker’s Fool (Satan’s Devils MC #8) by Manda Mellett
I am so happy to have finally read Joker and Lady’s story! This is an m/m book but its also so so much more. I was put through every emotion with this story.
Joker had a hard past with his family life and did all he could to “change” who he was on the outside at least. As we learn of his past and also what lands him and Lady at the mother chapters compound, we learn a lot of the past as we work our way to the present we were left with the last book, Rock Bottom.
Lady helps Joker come to an acceptance of himself and work through past trauma so they can have a future.
The emotions with Joker’s past about broke me and im so happy we got to go on this journey with these two. I cannot wait for more from this MC!
Satan’s Devils MC
By Manda Mellett
This is a suspenseful romance dealing with how we see others.
While it is part of the Satan’s Devils series. It could be a standalone.
Joker is disowned by his family, after many years of conditioning, to be someone he is not. He has served his country and now he just wants to belong. But he has a secret that could cause this MC to disown him as well. He will put his club brothers before himself, because he desires to belong. Joker has vowed to protect this family of brothers. But will they stand behind him if they knew his secret?
Manda Mellett has written one of the most heartbreaking romances I have read in a longtime. No worries it will have a beautiful ending. I love this series!!! Everyone of her books draws you in. I fell in love with this young man and his biker family. The struggle is real people! Joker and Lady’s story is one of my favorites. I can’t say enough about the writer and this series. I so hope more will follow. Thank You Manda Mellett for opening my eyes on such a sensitive matter. More people need to read Jokers Fool!!!
Review @ Cinful
This was not my first Satan’s Devils MC novel from Manda Mellett, but I would have to say this is by far my favorite yet! If you haven’t read all of the previous ones available that is not an issue, this can be read as a standalone. Mellett does a wonderful job of tying in enough of the previous story lines where it is needed that you are not lost. I would recommend going back and reading the others though because they are all good novels and do build up as they go.
Joker’s Fool really brings the emotions to surface. Be prepared to feel just about all of them as you read the journey that Joker and Lady have taken to get to where they are and then as they figure out where they will fall into place in the future. I also want to throw in a quick disclaimer of sorts here. Please don’t pass on this book because it is categorized into the M/M romance category, especially if you have read the other books in the series. This book is so much more than what you would expect to be getting. I have put this on my top five, hit me in all the feels, and tear-inducing reads of 2018.
Joker’s journey is no joke. Pun intended. His past ripped my heart out as I read it. I wanted to reach through the kindle and embrace him, heal all his broken pieces. I was grateful when there were finally those hints of light glimmering though in his future. What his struggle did do for me as a reader though, was make him realistic and connectable. Mellett wrote him and his emotions with a tangibility that I couldn’t get enough of. Lady was an equally connectable character. He is that once in a lifetime kind of love we all search for, exactly what Joker so desperately needed. These two may have been a wonderful thing eventually but the story isn’t in the happily ever after with this novel. It really lies in how they each got there. Both have to face some secrets, obstacles, fears, and so much more to get what they really want. The best things in life are never the easiest ones to obtain.
Jokers Fool by Amanda Mellett is a Satan’s Devils MC novel. Full of intrigue and tension and will be sure you draw you in.
I’m not sure what I was expecting when I read this book but I hadn’t been expecting it to be about two male main characters. However I think, for me, that just made it so much better. I didn’t see it coming so when it did it sucked me straight in.
I loved that both characters were flawed, t made them so perfect for each other. And I loved that the author didn’t just rely on it being a M/M story, that there actually a great storyline.
I have read other books by Manda Mellett but I have to say this one is definitely my favourite so far.
Joker’s Fool (Satan’s Devils #8)
By Manda Mellett
Rated 4 stars
Well this book didn’t leave me astonished or slack jawed. Well correction….it did just not for the normal reason. It did give me insight into some of the sick perverse thoughts that people have against a different sexual lifestyle. Jokers parents are horrible people! Normally I am not a fan of flashbacks. But in this story. I really felt they were warranted and helped me understand what Joker has had to deal with his entire life. His parents….Grrr!
I loved Jokers character. He was pretty complex and grew so much during the story. I was able to understand how Joker was having such a difficult time with his sexuality and always trying to be “normal”. Lady’s Man was the perfect complement to Joker’s character. Where Joker had fearfulness Lady’s Man was confident and calm. I think he scared Joker to pieces with his openness. He was such a help in all areas and I could see how Joker really needed him.
This briefly touches on the stories and characters from all the previous books. So if you have read them some of this will be old hat and you can focus on Joker’s story while reminiscing. I started a couple books ago so some stories were new. What surprised me the most was that Joker and Lady we’re together so long before anyone mentioned/noticed it. I remember the “church” meeting from previously and I thought they were newish characters just being introduced. But they have been background characters through all the stories. Such a neat idea to bring them forward!
Prez’s speech at the end (*sniff* ) just brought a smile to my face and happy tears to my eyes! I am so pleased with the ending of Joker’s story. No one deserves it more!
Another great story of the Devils. Manda Mellett did an amazing job of keeping me entertained as well as moving the story forward. I’m sure this type of story isn’t new but it’s still a story that needs to be told to remind us to not be so judgemental of different people, cultures and races.
