Grumbler’s Ride: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #2 by Manda Mellett – Review by Roxsanne Lesieur

Grumbler's Ride (Satan's Devils MC San Diego #2)Grumbler’s Ride by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a book for those over 18 only due to it’s graphic nature.

This is another fantastic installment of the Satan’s Devils MC series, this one is again based in San Diego and this one is Grumbler’s story, Grumbler is a man full of tattoos and his bike is his pride and joy, he has customised it completely and is always looking to improve it, but it is known in the club as his old lady!

We begin the story with Grumbler going for another tattoo in the club’s shop, he had a patch of skin to fill and now it is done, he has a skull smoking a cigarette as a tribute to his friend Smoker who has recently passed away and is really happy with the result. He reminisces about Smoker, as he leaves the shop and as he is walking towards his motorcycle, he thinks about how he spends his money on her and the crash he recently had which damaged it and broke his leg in the process and how it is still paining him now. He hears someone shouting as he is preparing to drive off and doesn’t realise it is at him, until he takes his helmet off and sees someone running towards him. It turns out that his bike has caught the eye of a photographer and he wants to take some pictures of it, he introduces himself as Devon Starr and uses flattery to try and get Grumbler to agree to let him do the photos, at first, Grumbler is wary and thinks that it may be too good to be true, but pride takes over when he thinks that it could be used on a motorcycle magazine or book and as he hashes out a deal with Devon, he is told that it would be for the cover of an MC romance novel and that his bike is the focus, not him, but he is thinking about how doing nothing and getting paid for it sounds like a good idea, so he gives Devon his number and that is the end of that.

When we next see Grumbler, it is in church where they are discussing the club businesses and how they are doing financially, as well as other business around the other club chapters around the country, this flows as usual and decisions are made, it leads to Grumbler reminiscing about the club’s past and the troubles they had, as well as troubles with another chapter, as well the members within the chapter they had trouble with. It also leads him to reminisce more about how a fellow member Niran had to help him with his role as Sergeant At Arms, as well as becoming close when he helped him to recover from his injuries, with his experience with living with an injured leg as Niran had lost one of his. He talks to Niran after church has finished and discusses the stock check and that he is trying to get the other members to log when they take anything out, but that they aren’t inclined to do it, to which they have a laugh about it. Grumbler goes to have a drink at the club bar as the club gets louder and the girls start to settle into the evenings activities, he looks around and thinks about how they are all sexy, but too young for him. He is propositioned by one of the girls, but decided to pass as he is feeling his age and isn’t as interested as he used to be in his younger days, he also thinks some more about his younger days, Smoker and how his Prez had found his old lady, he decides to go for a ride to get out of his own head before an early night.

The next day, he gets up early and goes down for some breakfast and conversation, he talks about the club’s Prez and his old lady looking for a house and how he will miss it when they go, mainly because her cooking has improved the standard of the food in the clubhouse. He discusses his plan for the day and decides to go to the harley store to see if there is anything new for his bike, when he gets a message from the photographer asking if he is free at three that afternoon to do the photoshoot, he agrees and then heads off with Niran to the store where they drink coffee, have a chat with the other customers and but what they want. As Niran leaves in one direction, Grumbler heads back to the club for a bite to eat before heading out to the photoshoot, he is the first to get there, followed by a young lady and her mum, the photographer and finally the male model. As the shoot is happening, Grumbler ends up talking to Mary who is the girl’s mum, they both shout when the models do something they don’t like and they bond a bit over it, soon enough the shoot ends and as all the parties say goodbye, they think nothing more about it until Grumbler finds out a couple of months later that the photographs have been used, but he hasn’t received his payment and this is where the story really gets going.

As Grumbler and Mary get back into contact with each other, they realise something is a bit fishy, but what they are getting themselves into, nobody was expecting or prepared for and what they find leads their paths to intertwine in a surprising way. What will the future hold for the two and will it all end in misery? The only way to find out is to read along and see!

Grumbler’s Ride(Satan’s Devils MC #2) By Manda Mellett review by Crystal Davidson

Grumbler's Ride (Satan's Devils MC San Diego #2)Grumbler’s Ride by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Grumbler’s Ride is book 2 in Manda Mellett’s Satan’s Devils MC San Diego series, and i absolutely LOVED it! I picked this book up because i just finished Being Lost, which is the first book in this series and decided that Manda Mellett is quickly becoming one of my favorite romance authors. Every single book she writes makes you fall in love with a different Motorcycle man because her characters are always HOT with a capital T, protective, capable, strong, sincere, funny, easy to relate to, and just downright irresistible, and Grumbler is no different, even though he’s a touch older than I have any business oogling. He is the Seargent at Arms for the MC, meaning he helps to keep order, and makes sure requests and orders made by the President of the MC are enforced. His one true love is his bike. All chrome and sexy-like. Until Mary and Alicia and things in his life start heating up. This story has some sensitive subject matter that usually i wouldn’t be able to read without a few days’ worth of reflecting, however like the usual Mallett finesse, this book has plenty of steam, suspense, wonderful characters and action to help you keep moving forward. This book was definitely another 5 start read and im excited to see which character book 3 is going to cover!

Being Lost: Satan’s Devils MC San Diego #1
By Manda Mellett
4 out of 5 Stars
MC books are a hit or miss with me. This isn’t a genre that I can identify with or really understand, however, Being Lost, by Manda Mellett is a fantastic book to get started for someone who is looking to cut their teeth on an MC series. These are not your typical heroes and heroines. The main male character is much older than the other books that I read, but I like a silver fox with a plan, and Lost is just that fox. Lost has found himself in charge of the wellbeing of a mature woman and her adult son. They are in danger and the more Lost and Patsy get to know each other, the less he can stomach the thought of something happening to her.
Mellett is a fantastic storyteller. She brings depth and life to both character and story. You will not regret picking up this book and starting this series. 4 out of 5 stars. A must-read.

Targeting Dart (Satan’s Devils Book 4) By Manda Mellett – Review By Jennifer Gordon

Targeting Dart (Satan's Devils MC, #4)Targeting Dart by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Targeting Dart, is book four in the Satan’s Devils MC’ series. This series is full of amazing characters from officers, prospects and patched members of the Satan’s Devils and their Old Ladies to the club sweet butts, and confirmed bachelor Dart is another great character. Dart is happy being an average member of the Satan’s Devils MC, he has no desire to be an officer and is happy riding in the middle of the pack and enjoys the biker life-style to the full, with no commitments. When he meets Alex whilst she’s auditioning to become a stripper to earn some much needed money for her sons medical care, Dart fights his attraction for her and all he offers her is friendship. Alex is happy to have a friend like Dart as she fights for the life of her sick child. However Dart has to step up when Alex’s violent ex reappears in her life and threatens to take her son away. Dart fears he has left it too late to express his true feelings and Alex has suppressed her feelings in fear of him hurting her but as they come together against her ex, they can’t fight their feelings for one another any longer.
This is another fantastic standalone story in Manda Mellett’s MC series, however personally I have found it more enjoyable to read the series of books in order as the characters do crossover and past events are mentioned in future books. Targeting Dart is a dark romance and does contains some themes of violence. It took me on an emotional rollercoaster but you always feel as though you are among friends reading books in this series, as you get to know the characters so well thanks to the authors wonderful descriptions of them all.

Slick Running (Satan’s Devils Book 3) By Manda Mellett – Review By Jennifer Gordon

Slick Running (Satan's Devils MC, #3)Slick Running by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Slick Running, is book three in Manda Mellett’s ‘Satan’s Devils MC’ series, Satan’s Devils are “hot alpha males who certainly aren’t shy in the bedroom”, and one by one they meet their strong feisty women, “who they want to ride with through life”, and this is Slick and Ella’s story. The club is devastated following the loss of one of their own so it’s not great timing when Slick’s ‘old lady’ suddenly returns needing Slick’s and the MC’s help. Slick had claimed Ella but then she ran away from both the club and Slick and he has no idea why so when she returns needing help he is obviously wary. However when he and the club discover why she needs their help they have no option but to help. The Satan’s Devils then find themselves having to break up a child grooming ring to rescue Ella’s younger sister. Meanwhile Slick and Ella still have the same attraction and chemistry they always had but Slick is determined that their past stays dead and buried and Ella is keeping a secret so can they overcome all the obstacles and get back together.
I loved Ella and Slick and was cheering them in to their happy ever after. I found this book a bit darker than the previous ones in the series as it deals with child grooming but to me this just added depth to the story making this series so much more than, just another MC series.

Drummer’s Beat (Satan’s Devils MC Book 2) By Manda Mellett Review By Jennifer Gordon

Drummer's Beat (Satan's Devils MC, #2)Drummer’s Beat by Manda Mellett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book two of Manda Mellett  exciting ‘Satan’s Devils MC’ series is Drummer’s Beat. In this book we are introduced to the MC’s President, Drummer who has yet to find a women strong enough to be his ‘Old Lady’ until he meets Sam a fellow biker broken down at the side of the road. To make things complicated she claims to be another member, Vipers daughter. This storyline is a bit darker as it involves a sex trafficking ring and Drummer must find Sam before she’s lost to him forever. The storyline is fast paced and there are a host of amazing characters from officers, prospects and patched members of the Satan’s Devils and their Old Ladies to the club sweet butts. All the characters are well developed and have their own backstories which adds to the overall storyline. As the characters come into each book it is more enjoyable to read the series in order, however each book is a standalone story. Drummer’s Beat is full of drama, action, suspense and of course romance and plenty of steamy scenes between Drummer and Sam. The storyline does take you on an emotional rollercoaster as the characters are so well developed and described by Mellett that you feel as though they are old friends. Looking forward to book three.

This is a full length novel containing MC, romance and taking back what is yours. This is for adult eyes only. Due to adult theme and content.

Manda Mellett has done it again! This is a fast paced story loaded with suspense, romance, and the lives of her characters. I absolutely love, love, love, Truck and Allie! I am also pleased with Manda Mellett as her writing will place you inside this story. I have cried, laughed and closed this book so I could breath, before going back in. This is a must read! Start with book 1, even though they can be read as a standalone. I’m looking forward to meeting the next Satan’s Devil.

Devil’s Due: Satan’s Devils MC Colorado Chapter #3 By Manda Mellett. I seriously can’t get enough of this series or this author! From the very first book I’d read I have been completely hooked and not so patiently waiting for each story and this time was no different! Once again this author blows me away with the story and amazing characters. Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans, and things definitely happen when you’re not looking. The characters are complex and relatable, they have a chemistry that leaps off the pages. I love a story that comes alive in my mind and this author is a pro at making that happen for me. It’s everything I want and need in a MC story. Five amazing stars all the way!

Demon’s Angel: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #2
By: Manda Mellett
5 out of 5 stars

The story Demon’s Angel: Satan’s Devils MC (Colorado Chapter) #2 by Manda Mellett is a wonderful book that I loved reading. It pulled me in from the very beginning and didn’t let me go until I had finished the final page. I loved reading about the characters of Demon and Violet. Demon is an important member of the Satan’s Devils MC club. When he finds that Violet has returning to town he is determined to keep the promise he made to Violet’s brother to watch over her. He has an attraction to her that he keeps hidden. Violet is a character I felt both empathy and sympathy for. She has always had a crush on Demon and seeing him again has caused those feelings to become stronger. Violet needs help. She must keep her son safe. Demon has vowed that he will protect both her and her son. What does the future hold for Demon and Violet? Will these two act on their true feelings for each other? Will Demon be able to keep Violet and her son safe? Read this book to find out. This story has moments were I was turning pages and wondering what was going to happen next. There is suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I came to care about both Demon and Violet with each chapter that I read and wanted them to find happiness. There is intense and emotional dialogue in this story that keeps you glued to the pages. Romance also included in this story. I highly recommend reading this book.
