Ever wonder how an MC prez becomes an MC prez? Well this is the first book I’ve read like this, and I loved it! Red is a young man whose life wasn’t easy. Once Red has a life changing event leading him to leave his small town, he decides to journey away and find a place made for him. On his way, he meets many people who change his life. He settled into Tucson where he joins the Satan’s Devils MC and finds where he belongs. Before long, he’s moved around again, and eventually makes his way to prez of the Vegas chapter! Read this book, it’s not like any of the others in the series (that I’ve read so far), but it’s just as amazing! It’s suspenseful, addicting, and, of course, one of a kind. There is love, loss, respect, and deception. Red’s life is a fun one to follow.
Oh what a book! I have read a few Satan’s Devils MC books, but I have never before gotten such an intriguing and thorough look into a main character before. Seeing through Red’s eyes, from his life before Satan’s Devils and then through it was such an enjoyable ride. Though there was not a romance as the main plot, the book was not lacking in spice either. The plot twist at the end was hinted at, but still unexpected. All this resulted in me staying up way past my bedtime to not only finish this book, but start the next! I also really love how it touches on diversity, which was a pleasant surprise for a motor cycle club book! I love diverse representation, but have not come to expect it from this genre. Needless to say, this author has risen to be one of my very favorites and I fully intend to not only read all Satan’s Devils MC books, but anything else by her!
If you are looking for action, spice, plot twists, a bit of mystery, close found family bonds, and great problem solving, definitely give this book a try. It does touch on some happenings in some of the other Satan’s Devils MC books, so if you are a purist in your reading order, I would start from the beginning. If not, you will spoil some surprises along the way. Whichever way you read this series, the important thing is that you read it! I feel like by now, all the Satan’s Devils members have become some of my closest friends, though fictional, haha.

Mixed feelings for this one, I was anticipating reading this ever since I finished the first one and that cliffhanger. I like Red and Chery’s relationship and where that was heading and then we had the child thrown in and it felt like a huge chunk of this book fell on about then instead of Red and Cheryl which is what I was hoping. The book was still okay I enjoyed reading it for the most part and the book was brilliantly written.
This was a really good book! This was probably the most interesting of the series I’ve read so far because the author went back and we got to see how Red became a president of an MC and it actually showed a lot of backstory. Like most (if not all) of the books in Satan’s Devils series this book was emotional, dark with some opportune humor thrown in there. I absolutely love this MC series and this book was no exception! This book does end on a cliffhanger, as it is part one of a two part story.
I really enjoyed this book, like I think I enjoyed it way too much because I literally finished it in a day. If you love, bike gangs, love story, action this is an amazing read. its like sons of anarchy written in a book from the prospects view point thou. Red is an amazing character and I seriously couldn’t help falling in love with the man he turns out to be. The respect he has for his friends and family and the way he treats the women and kids in the book you can’t not thinking of how amazing this guy would be. But with a great story there is always great sadness with the loss of a few friends and like family crew, things kind of go out of hand but red is the one that really saved the day. I seriously can not wait to read the second book to this series, it was so well written, flowed thou the situations and everything so nicely it kept me wanting more.
Having not read any of the authors books before this one really has been looking for them all!!! Red is an amazing character and to really get into who he is and his life adventures from the beginning really draws you into the book. So much happens and it keeps you wanting to read more. I love these types of books and can’t wait to read part 2! Thank you!
This is the 1st book in the Satan’s Devils MC Vegas Chapter series. This is an MC Romance novel and is 393 pages long. These books get better and better! Red started out leaving his hometown in search of his future. A future of a job, a girl, and some kids. But the Gods sent him down a different path. One that led him to the Devils MC. There he became a Prospect and in time the President. But he never fully let go of his previous dreams. Are they still within his reach?
I have read many of Manda Mellett’s books, and this one does not disappoint. Her depth in her characters and interesting plot always has me returning. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors. At the beginning, Red was at a crossroads. The book opened with his father’s death, and him putting in a two-week notice. We’ve all been there – time for a change, and it’s quite the change too. He headed across the country and landed with the Satan’s Devils. Red has a complexity that makes him interesting. His life felt like he had just been surviving. So glad Red has his own book, two in fact. Another great book from Manda Mellett! Looking forward to the second book!

Manda Mellet has done it again, she creates amazing stories and I do love my MCs. I loved the characters. I loved seeing Red and his relationship with Cheryl. As always we are left with a cliffhanger.

Red has been through so much in his 25 years. His mother walked out on him and his dad and Red was left tending to his paralyzed father. Now he is out on the open road looking for his place if that is even a thing.
I truly enjoyed Red and his plight. This story is largely character driven and does have a great story line. It starts of good and gets better. The only thing I would say if missing is more details. I like when I can actually picture what the author is describing. However that small detail will not be stopping me from reading book two.
This book is one of my favorites, Red’s story. After Red’s father passes away, he decides to pack it up and move on where nothing is holding him back any longer. Red’s story is truly a journey. He meets a wonderful woman, Cheryl, and becomes instantly attached to her. Cheryl wanted nothing more to go with Red and have a journey herself but then decides it is not for her and ends up going back home. The journey takes Red first to Tucson where he joins the Satan’s Devils MC and eventually ends up in Vegas chapter and eventually becoming the Vegas chapter President.
The more I read Manda Mellett’s books, the more I just love each character. I really get drawn in to her storytelling and this story was hard to put down. I am so looking forward to book 2!!!
Red’s Peril Part 1: The making of an MC Prez (Satan’s Devils MC Vegas Chapter) by Manda Mellett is one of the best Satan’s Devils Books I have personally read. If you have read Ms. Melletts previous books then the name Red will sound familiar. Full of wonderful writing, terrific main character, and great supporting characters Ms. Mellett did not disappoint with giving Red his own story. Red’s Peril Part 1 is filled with drama, emotional scenes, steamy scenes, and of course plenty of suspense. The only thing I was disappointed by is I was hoping for a happy ending for our Red and instead I got a cliffhanger, so I am eagerly awaiting part 2. So if your looking for a great new biker book then I highly recommend Red’s Peril Part 1: The making of an MC Prez (Satan’s Devils MC Vegas Chapter) by Manda Mellett.
This book is only for those over 18 due to the graphic content within.
Red’s story starts with a death, after living in a regimented home life and working hard the rest of the time, Red is desperate for a change and when the opportunity arises, he gives his two weeks notice in and says goodbye to the man who gave him a chance and a place to both learn a skill and keep his sanity. He leaves after a small sending off gathering which reminds him of what he is leaving behind, and for a moment or two wonders if he is doing the right thing, but soon he is all packed and ready to head south to escape to a warmer climate on his refurbished bike.
A couple of days pass in a haze of riding, stopping at diners and motels, as well as a bit of sightseeing dotted in for good measure, that is until he arrives in a small town and is captivated by the woman working in the local diner, there is just something about her that intrigues him and so he decides to stay in the town and see what happens. As he spends a bit more time with the lovely lady, he ends up inviting her to stay the night, which shows how compatible in bed they are, as well as being kindred spirits at heart and in the morning, she asks to tag along for the ride and Red agrees. Things aren’t all good though when after only a couple of days, she decides that the life isn’t for her and she wants to go home, Red isn’t impressed with the sudden change of heart and leaves her on the side of the road at another small town diner to make her own way back.
He regrets this almost immediately and wishes he knew how to make sure that she got home ok, but as the miles pass and he travels around and gets talking to a couple of old bikers, he takes some of their friendly advice and finally decides on a destination to travel to, however, when he finds that he only employment he can get is with an MC club, he is initially reluctant. As he sees and hears more about the MC and that they are on the straight and narrow, he decides to give the club a change and agrees to prospect for them and as time passes he becomes more comfortable with the idea and starts to enjoy this new stage in his life, but now and again, he still thinks of the woman he left behind, but will his future lie with the MC, even after the novelty of it has worn off and he realises .exactly what he has let himself in for, or will he decide that the MC isn’t for him after all? This is a story about finding where you belong and how sometimes it isn’t where you would expect it to be, as well as how the plans you start out in life don’t always end up being how you finish them with lots of action and entertainment throughout.

Red’s Peril Part 1: The making of an MC Prez (Satan’s Devils MC Las Vegas Chapter
By: Manda Mellett
I thought I loved Jax Teller but Red s giving true SOA vibes.
This is a true journey as you read it is a whirlwind of emotion.
Are you a fan of motorcycles?
Now this isn’t the best book I have read but it is worth it and I am excited for book two
Amazing cover art.
This story is a romantic adventure of love quickly lost, a path that is unknown.
Can dreams come true.
Mellett has created a very original plot and theme.
Where can you go wrong with love and motorcycles?
Red is red hot in my mind and I am guessing in book two he will sizzle.
I have always been interested in getting into this type of novel, one that is well outside my regular reading material. I was given the opportunity to do so via this novel, Red’s Peril, part one, and my oh my, am I so glad that I took the chance on it. Manda Mellet’s writing is pure gold. You immediately are swept into Red’s inner thoughts, and turmoil, and know that he’s not the type of guy to just give up, really, on anything. He has just lost his father, whom he was a caretaker for the past seven years, giving up his teen/early adult years. What better time for a fresh start? And so, our journey begins, following him along the way, and nothing is better than doing so via first person narrative. The world building is, well, out of this world, and I felt all the emotions come right up off the page, and thank goodness I read from a Kindle, otherwise, may have ruined the novel itself!
There are some more bumps in the road for Red, but he navigates them almost as smoothly as he rides his pride and joy. This novel truly does inspire one to take chances, make mistakes, and don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty and not to judge a book by it’s cover. I was warned in advance that this novel is a cliffhanger, which I am very grateful for, and am very much looking forward to continuing on with the Red’s chosen family, the Satan’s Devils, and all the others that leave the reader warm, tingly, and just, maybe just, a little jealous of the closeness and bonds that these characters share. Colour me impressed, and moving forward, I’ll have more respect for the colour “Red.” Highly recommend, thank you, Ms. Mellett!
One hell of a ride
I don’t usually go for MC type stories but thought I’d give this a go. Totally worth it. This book drew me in and kept me captive as the story follows Red and his rise to becoming Prez of the Satan’s Devils MC. There is a certain rawness to the writing that I absolutely loved. The author does an awesome job at developing the characters, with each one being so well rounded and unique. Cannot wait to dive into part 2.
This book offers a fascinating inside look at Red’s life and the type of man that he is. He took on so much responsibility at such a young age. I really enjoyed getting to read the motivation behind everything that he does. Red finds himself in a position that he never expected to be in and didn’t even want when the Satan’s Devils offer him a chance to prospect with them.
The author gives a real inside look at what a close knit family the group becomes. Poor Red has been through so much it was nice seeing his accomplishments but the twist cliffhanger at the end made my heart ache for Red once again. I absolutely cannot wait to see how this all plays out in Part 2.
Manda, Manda Manda! How can this author write book after book series after series and still have so much to say!? I love Red.
If you have read any of Manda Mellett’s other Devil series you know you’ve read about Red. He’s the Prez of the Vegas Chapter. This story is the making of that prez and all that he faces during his growing up years and all that he thinks he missed out on. There are other characters in this story that have their own stories in other clubs. I love how Mellett makes all the clubs link together. Highly recommend reading everything by Mellett.
In this story, Red faces challenges and heartbreak but still manages to find his way. However, that ending! I knew part of it was going that way but I didn’t think it would end that way! Looking forward to part 2!

Red’s Peril Part 1: The making of an MC Prez (Satan’s Devils MC Vegas Chapter) by Manda Mellett – Review by Allyson Ware
Red is your stereotypical blue collar worker that gets tired of being selfless. Who can blame him? Dealing with his mother taking off and his father passing away after caring for him for years, he decides to take off and start a new life for himself and what a life he makes!
The detail in this book is beyond outstanding. The synopsis truly does not do this book justice. I love the fact that this novel’s first person character is a male figure. The author could have taken the position of Cheryl and based the book off of that perspective. I do not know that I have ever read a romance novel from the male perspective; it is refreshing. Not only that, Manda Mellett captivated me. I did not want to stop reading, even though my body forced me to. I cannot fathom any reader being disappointed in this book, but that is my opinion and I will leave it at that.

Red’s Peril Part 1: The making of an MC Prez (Satan’s Devils MC Vegas Chapter) by Manda Mellett – Review by Melissa Saxton
Be prepared to fall in love with this exploration of Red’s story and how he ended up with Satan’s Devils Vegas Chapter.
Red started out as a simple kid with way too much responsibility placed on his young shoulders but after his father’s death finds himself free to explore the world on his rebuilt Harley.
Red doesn’t expect a passing interest to haunt him for the rest of his days, but it Shadows all of his decisions. As he rises in the ranks of Satan’s Devils the character building and story behind who Red becomes will cause you anger, relief, frustration and you will eventually be brought to tears.
This was my first book I’ve read of Manda Mellett and she’s turned me into an instant fan as I Fell in love with Red! Don’t miss this story!
I fell in love with the Satan’s Devils MC family from the very beginning so many books ago. Red has appreared in numerous books and now it’s his time for his own story. I love that book one of Red’s Peril gives us his history, one that we have never been privy to before. Like all books through out the SDMC series, you fall in lust with the biker and can’t wait for more. Waiting around for book 2 is gonna be hard, but I know if will be worth the wait.
Red’s Peril Part 1: The making of an MC Prez (Satan’s Devils MC Vegas Chapter) by Manda Mellett is a really good read! This is an MC romance, with mystery, danger, drama and more.
In this story, we follow Red, who is mentioned in previous books of the Satan’s Devils MC series.
Red, in search of warmer weather to ride his Harley year round, is on a mission of self discovery. He meets a waitress, at a café he’s stopped at and one thing leads to another and well, you know… things happen. He hasn’t always had it easy and climbed his way to the top to become the Prez of the Satan’s Devils Vegas Chapter.
But is there more? Is this all there is for him? The book did end in a cliffhanger and I’m excided to read Part 2 to see how things play out!
Red’s Peril Part 1: The making of an MC Prez (Satan’s Devils MC Las Vegas Chapter) by Manda Mellett
I don’t know how she does it but Ms. Mellett has written another amazing book and I’m so glad they keep coming.
Red’s Peril was a great walk down memory lane along with bits and pieces we may not have known and in my case some things that were forgotten.
Red has been in the background in the previous books and I am so glad we get to know him and the guys in Vegas. I really love how she has connected his time line to the others and helped us fill in some blanks we weren’t even aware of.
There is so much I could say but it all is regarding particulars of Red, his past and his present so I’m going to hold off for now.
Part 2 comes out in three long weeks, have the release date circled on my calendar and will be dropping everything to get this read.
If you are looking for a great book and series you won’t go wrong with Red or any of Satan’s Devils.
I never dreamed this would be my life in charge of a biker gang but they look after me when I need it and become the Prez, but will I ever find the right person to spend my life with since I screwed up the only relationship that ever meant anything to me.
Red has been on a long road, first giving up on his dream as a young boy to become a mechanic to then want to spread his wings and fly to Las Vegas, but when he happened upon some bikers who brought him into the fold and years later he is in charge of the chapter all he wants is an “old Lady” to have a family with but long ago he had that person but it flitted through his hands and will he ever be able to find someone to match her.
Cheryl is floating through life but she is trying to get the handsome biker out of her head, but when she ends up in as Vegas and sees him again the attraction is instant again but will this time be the right time or will life get in the way.
I loved this story, the attraction and chemistry between the main two characters was off the page. Red has pop up in the other books in the various series and you have always just had enough information to peak your interest and then its ripped from you in wanting more and we have more. This is a great introduction to this series and as always with Manda she draws you into the story from the first word to the last and then have you wanting more.
The story is well written and the characters are believable and relatable as the character of Red is flawed but has a good heart and wants to do the right thing, Cheryl is a perfect match for him as she is not a size zero, petite blonde but describe as a curvy full woman which makes the characters more believable and you can relate to them and are rooting for them.
I can’t wait for part two and see where the story goes.
Man Oh Man! I was hesitant to read this as I don’t care for duets. I am sure glad I did anyway!(I mean its by Manda Mellett so of course I picked it up) This is really the making of a SD Prez and the intro to the LV SD. We take this trip right along with Red. It gives some insight Into what a prospect and on up goes through. The friends he makes and loses along the way. The questions he has , the biker life he doesn’t want and the girl he cant forget all add up to the story I could not out down!
The author did a great job with this one. I can see why the break was needed. Originally I thought she could just sum it up with a couple chapters and a flashback here and there but I really think she did so much better doing it this way. I was really able to immerse myself into Red’s life and almost felt like I was a little devil sitting on his shoulder..keeping an eye on him.
Overall I absolutely LOVE this story and Red. It really was a journey that I took along with Red. I look forward to the next!
Ps. I keep notes while reading a book. This one had me scrambling and rearranging and its about a mile long 🙂 Kept me on my toes!
Red’s Peril Part 1: The Making of an MC Prez (Satan’s Devil’s MC Vegas Chapter) is about a young man named Red in search of himself and a future. He’s not sure what the future holds for him, but he knows that there must be more for him out there somewhere. After his father passes away, he has nothing holding him back so Red decides it’s time to move on and jumps onto his Harley in search of a warmer climate.
Along his journey Red meets Cheryl with whom he feels an instant attraction and knows is the woman of his dreams. Unfortunately, this is not to be, and he moves on but never forgets this special girl that will always hold a special place in his heart. Red continues his journey with an unknown destination and somehow ends up in Tucson where he meets the Satan’s Devils MC. Although reluctant at first to join a biker club, Red soon find his place within the Satan’s Devils and finally feels he has found his home forging long lasting friendships within the Satan’s Devils club.
Then suddenly Red’s life is uprooted, and he is torn away from his friends once again and relocated to the Satan’s Devils MC chapter located in Vegas. Red isn’t happy about leaving his Tucson family behind but thankfully it doesn’t take him long to fit in and form friendships and gain the respect and loyalty of the Vegas members. Suddenly he is thrust into the role as VP and almost immediately following that Red becomes Prez of the Vegas chapter of the Satan’s Devils.
Red is happy and life is going well for him in Vegas, but he just can’t get that one girl out of his head that he met so briefly. No matter how much time passes no other girl has been able to measure up or compare to Cheryl. Red is a man with a heart of gold that any girl would be lucky to have, and you can’t help but want him to have all his dreams come true. Throughout the book we just keep hoping that Red will either find happiness and be able to finally move on or that his elusive love of his life will return and Red will get the happily ever after he so clearly deserves.
Red’s Peril is another amazing story by Manda Mellett. I have read several of her other books about the Satan’s Devils MC and I can’t get enough of them. Manda has a way of drawing the reader into the story and have the reader become completely involved with the characters. I loved that the main character Red was a redhead because all too often the lead male character is tall, dark, and handsome. I can honestly say I’ve never read a book where the leading male is a redhead, so this was a welcome change. (I have a bit of a soft spot for redheads because my husband is a redhead.) I also loved the fact that the love of Red’s life, Cheryl, was not a perfect petite blond. She had a few curves to her which made her far more realistic and more relatable. I fell in love with Red and Cheryl and really wanted to see them get their happily ever after, whether it was with each other (preferably) or with someone who loved and appreciated them for who they are. Red’s Peril ended with a bit of a cliffhanger and I’m anxiously anticipating Part 2 which should be coming out shortly. I highly recommend this book and all the Satan’s Devils MC books written by Mandy Mellett.

Red’s Peril part one by Manda Mellett a fantastic five-star read. I am excited to get part two of this story, but only because I need to finish the story, I did feel like there were parts of this that felt a little like a catch up session, but there are other bits that I loved re-reading and going over from a different angle, its an odd one as I love the author and the whole MC dynamic they create, it was so nice getting to know the true Red and what makes him tick, this story added another dimension to the series, and now I am set to go hunting for number two, as that ending means I need it now.
Review by @saraoxo
Finally, I after seeing red pop up in previous books I finally got to find out more about him and what a story this is! I loved the story; it was well written I think as a reader and fan of previous books there was quite a lot of overlapping but this was needed for Red’s story so whilst it felt like I had read some of the parts before it was necessary. Red has been in so many other stories in the background I think it was inevitable that this would happen with his story. I loved Red but I knew his story was going to be full of ups and downs but I still wasn’t prepared for it. He really does have a heart of gold and I cannot wait to see what happens in the second part of this series!
This was a great 5 star read. This has quickly become one of my favorite authors for MC reads. I was pulled right in and didn’t want to put it down. I was excited to get Red’s story.
Red gave up his dream to care for his father, now that he has passed he is free to do something for himself. He gets on his motorcycle with the plan to find somewhere he can set down roots. He ends up meeting a woman on his journey and also comes across some men from the Satan Devil’s MC. As the years pass he earns the president patch for the MC. There is a twist when the woman from his past shows up. Will he finally find out why she disappeared so long ago?
Overall this was a great read. We do get some flashbacks from other books while we are going through the years. My emotions were all over the place. All of the characters added a great element to the story. I can’t wait to read part two of Red’s story so I can see how things end. If you enjoy MC reads than you will love this book and series. 1-click and get started today.
