Truck Stopped (Satan’s Devils MC #11) by Manda Mellett. This book was AMAZING! I have loved every book in this series and didn’t want to read this one knowing the end was near but once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. Its the story of Truck who has left the club to never return, broken, burned, injured physically and mentally. Enter Allie who we have read about in most of the books as the lose woman every guy in the club has been with. We’ve loved to hate her now we see a different side. She’s sent to try to get Truck back in the club. It’s not an easy task. Truck is at the very lowest point of his life even having thoughts of ending it all but Allie makes herself his friend. Is she encouraging him for herself or the club or really for him? Can he be with someone who has been with all his buddies intimately? Allie loves sex and makes no bones about it but she’s always had a soft spot for Truck and she’s afraid if she can’t reach him it may be the end of the road for him! I encourage you all to buy this series and don’t mess around buying one or two buy them all right now and read them from the beginning. You will LOVE them!
Truck Stopped is the eleventh book in Satan’s Devils MC Series by Manda Mellett. I have loved riding along with the Satan’ Devils as this series has unfolded. Meeting all the members and following alongside as they go through all the highs and lows which have occurred over the course of the series. Each book focuses on a particular character/couple, but most of the other characters also make appearance through each book. This makes for really great reading, and I am never quite sure what Ms. Mellett will deliver as she weaves twists and surprises through her storyline/s.
Each individual book could be read as a standalone, but I really recommend reading the series as a whole because all the books combined really help to build a bigger picture of the club, the characters, and other relevant details- which will enhance your overall reading experience. Plus, after reading one, you will find that you will want to read the other books too.
Truck and Allie’s story has been the most emotional, heartbreaking, painful, and touching stories of the entire series. I really recommend reading with a box of tissues on hand, because you are going to need them.
I love how this story gives us glimpses into the future and what everyone has been up to- I thought that was quite a clever and intriguing thing for Ms. Mellett to do. So, If you love a really well written, riveting and suspenseful MC story- with complex, quirky and loveable characters, and an original plot- then this is definitely the book/series for you!
What will Manda Mellett do next? I can’t wait to find out!
Thank you, Ms. Mellett!

TRUCK STOPPED is the grand finale’ of the “Satan’s Devil MC Series”
This whole series has had ups and downs. Some characters I have liked better than others, a few I actually didn’t like at all but their story was so compelling, I had to read it. This was one of them: I don’t like “sweet butts”… I’m not sure if it’s the term or the fact that women are used (and yes, I understand it is generally with their permission), or that it doesn’t have a pleasing sound to my ear. I have always felt like they could do more with their life than just be a hanger on.
Wow am I glad that I read this story. There are so any emotional elements to TRUCK STOPPED that I had to consciously take breaths a few times. To watch characters grow and age is a really cool thing. Often stories don’t explore life changes such as aging (understandable). There was so much healing in this story and questions were answered that I had forgotten I had.
This will absolutely be going back on my TBRA (to be read again) pile.

Truck Stopped, Satan’s Devils #11, by Manda Mellett and the ending of a fantastic series. It is the eleventh book in the series and I feel as though they are family. This such an emotional read as we journey along with two unfortunate souls, where my heart ached for them. There were many, many, tears reading this story, which just goes to show how invested I was but more importantly what a wonderful job Manda has done in bringing these amazing characters to life. The story is in two parts, the present where Drummer and Peg sit and reminisce about things that have happened in the club, both good and bad and then the actual story of what they were remembering. Manda wove it together beautifully and the sorrow I felt was real as their story just popped off the pages.
Allie’s start to life was not the best and threw her into a world she never wanted, that was until a saviour crossed her path and offered her a better way of life. Little did she know that one night, just one night with a certain biker would change her life forever. If only he could get past her past.
Truck is both physically damaged and emotionally broken and he has forsaken everyone, even his brothers, and they want him back. When he finally opens his doors the one person he ever expected was her but she was only good for one thing. So why could he not get her out of his head?
The very ending has left it open for a brand new series to come to life and I will wait with baited breath to see if it happens. I am sorry to see the end of this chapter in the MC but hope we get to see their legacies bought to life.

Thick Stopped is the eleventh book in the Satan’s Devils MC Series by Manda Mellett. This is my new favorite book in this series. It grabbed my attention from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until I read the last. It was gut wrenching and heartwarming with my emotions flying between laughing and crying throughout. This is Truck and Allie’s story and I love the way it was presented. I especially love the flash forwards into the future as Drummer relates the story and fills in information on other members of the MC. I highly recommend this book, series and author. This book can be read as a standalone but I can’t think of one reason why you wouldn’t want to read the rest on this series. They are all amazing.

Truck Stopped (Satan’s Devils MC #11) by Manda Mellett
This is just another great addition to this series. I was hooked from the beginning. I really enjoyed how the author told the story in a past tense story fashion. The characters just really jumped out of the book and into my imagination. There was just the right amount of drama with just the undertone of romance.
I really felt myself relate to Allie as I had a moderate form of the pregnancy illness she had. I totally found myself remembering that time and felt that the author really brings this to attention. I also found the authors use of PTSD really well written. There are so many things that can cause this and I found her use to be very insightful. I really found myself routing for Truck and Allie and found myself on the edge of my seat to see how things would end up. There are so many things that could have gone wrong but their relationship and characters were so strong it really made the book. I will definitely read more from this author and this series in the future.

Truck Stopped is the eleventh book in the Satan’s Devils MC series. Even though this story can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading other books in the series. They are excellent.
I was waiting for this book. After being mentioned in other books, there wasn’t a lot of detail about what was happening with Truck. I really wanted to see how things played out. I don’t know what I was expecting, but this book got me right in the feels. It was an intensely emotional story. The author is extremely good at making the characters come to life and you feel what they feel as you read. And, as with the other stories in this series, the author has tackled some real life struggles that brings a new awareness to the life experiences of others and what they might be struggling with.
Truck Stopped: Satan’s Devils MC #11 by Manda Mellett
I have really loved this series! This could be a standalone, but it is nice knowing some of the back information. I loved getting updates on previous couples, and I loved the flash forwards in this book. Manda Mellett has done a wonderful job with this series!
This is Truck’s and Allie’s story. They had to endure ups, downs, and all arounds. They each already endured so much. Each showed their strength even when they had so much trauma.
This is going to be a short and sweet review because I have many emotions running through me after finishing this treasure. Melancholy…that’s my major emotion. Manda Mellett laid it all out and everything fell into perfect place. I am happy, sad and felt myself tear up more than a few times. Some of it is saying goodbye to characters I have seen grow from prospects to old men. They have spent their lives with me. The other is because the main characters rock their story hard! I expect no less from Manda and in this one…with characters we have known for quite a while now?? Well she couldn’t have done them any better.
Allie, a character we have loved to hate, is now one we learn to love. What a turn around! And Well….. Truck? We have loved him from Prospect. Two different characters put through a ringer and come out reshaped on the other side.
I also want to say I appreciate the mention of the body changes to Allie. That is something a woman would be concerned about. Then what Truck did? Was simply perfect!

Truck Stopped is the eleventh book in Manda Mellett’s original Satan’s Devils MC series and finally, finally the writer is giving us Truck’s story!!! YEY! If you are like me who has read the Satan’s Devils MC series and the Colorado Chapter spin-off series then you know how long we have been waiting for Truck’s story! From the bits and pieces we have heard over the books leading up to this one, I knew that it would be a totally heartbreaking read!
I loved how the writer had set the whole story up – Truck and Allie’s story and then Drummer and Peg’s conversations in the future looking back at Truck and Allie’s story – absolutely brilliant! I was bawling my eyes out and I could not put the book down! The brotherhood, the loyalty, the care, the humanity … the writer has weaved it all together into a story that will not let you go and IF this is your first book in Satan’s Devils MC universe then you will want to reach for the other ones and I hope you do as you will not regret it, not one bit!
I am so grateful that the writer started with the spin off series as this is the final book in the main series and I would not want to leave the brothers and just maybe we will get the new generation series at some point as well … here is to hoping!
