Overview

Daisy "Little Flower" Anderson has lived her entire life on the sidelines of the Renegade Sons MC. Her father is a member, and her mother a club whore turned old lady. Not wanting to follow their footsteps, she chose a different path; one that keeps her close to the biker family she loves, but out of the club.

Struggling to keep it together, she never thought she would have anything of her own, until she met Preach. He is everything she swore she didn't want in life. One night of passion leads to unexpected consequences, and she knows, now more than ever, it's time to move forward.

Garrett "Preach" Austin lived his life caught in his father's iron fist. He never thought he would want anything more than freedom from his past, until he met his "Little Flower". She shows him there is more to life than pain.

Preach has a secret; one that forces him to choose between Daisy and his brothers. Even though he loves Daisy, the Renegade Sons are the only true family he has. He knows he can't have her, yet he can't let her go.

When Daisy moves on, Preach realizes what he's lost. Can he prove that he's the man for her, or is he too late?

As a fan of the tv show Sons of Anarchy I was immediately drawn to this story and soon became immersed in the gritty and sometimes dark nature of the MC. The men in this MC were a close knit group willing to commit whatever transgressions necessary to keep each other, and their livelihoods, safe. Many of the women in this world are seen as commodities unless they can catch the eye of one of the members which made for a less than romantic read at times. It's a story that doesn't pull any punches and doesn't hesitate to drag its characters, and us readers, through the emotional wringer and I was exhausted once the final page was turned. Preach had a horrible childhood full of religious hypocrisy, physical and emotional abuse, and very little affection. After years of putting up with it he turned the tables on his father and ended up in prison which changed his life forever upon his meeting a member of the Renegade Sons MC. These men soon became his family and he'd do anything to stay in their good graces, even if that means not giving in to the attraction he feels for the young and sweet Daisy, the daughter of a fellow member. He's drawn to her goodness and purity though he knows he's unworthy of her as his soul is stained with the rage that controlled his father. His inner demons, a jealous club follower, and fate ultimately intervene to make their relationship one full of emotional ups and downs and moments that make you want to cry as well as scream in anger at his actions. Preach starts out rather heroic, a savior to a young girl unloved by her family. When his stupidity pulls them apart he spirals out of control and hits bottom repeatedly before manning up. As the story progressed he became more of an antihero who I was still drawn to as he struggled to earn back Daisy's love. Daisy had a tough time growing up too, and still does as her father is a drunk who forgets she exists and his old lady is jealous of her beauty and seeks to make her life miserable by sabotaging any chance of her gaining happiness. She was kept away from much of the inner workings of the MC which has made her a bit naive when it comes to the role of women in this world. She expects faithfulness from the man she's come to love but fidelity isn't commonplace and becomes a major issue in their relationship when her catty friend tries to stake her claim. Daisy is used to being a doormat, waiting for Preach to rescue her, and it's not until late in the story that she stands up for herself and demands respect. She's the light to Preach's unrelenting darkness and though he hurts her time and again she can't help but be drawn to his vulnerable side that she occasionally witnesses. He may leave her angry and frustrated at times but they're meant for each other as their mutual loneliness is only assuaged in each other's arms. This was a gritty story where the men don't always act the hero. Their language is harsh as is their treatment of those women who hang out at the club. Those women are strictly for sex which added to the already overtly sexualized world witnessed here. The only bright moments are when it's just Preach and Daisy, when they can block out the world, and just be themselves. Without all the catty interferences, the familial threats, and the danger from other MCs and the law, their relationship would've progressed with a fairytale feel. Ultimately I was drawn to this grittiness and look forward to more!

This book had me from the first page and once I started there was no stopping. I could not quit turning pages even if I had wanted to. I got so involved and connected to the 2 lead characters Daisy and Preach. This was an amazing read. I could feel all the emotions that the author wrote about the characters feeling. If they were going through some kind of tragedy or heartbreak I felt like my heart was being ripped out. WOW is about all I can say. I was not sure if I was going to read this one or not because I struggled through the first book which was Ice and Kidd's story, but I am so glad that I chose to read this one. I fell in love with Daisy and Preach. Their chemistry is explosive and will leave you hanging on for more. I actually found that having Ice and Kidd a secondary characters in this book also helped me understand and like them a bit more. There were times I wanted to reach through and smack more than one of the characters and their were also times where I wish I could have just taken them out of the story to protect them. I would highly recommend this book. It does deal with some tough topics but most of it is not to graphic.

This is the second book in the Renegade Sons MC series and I have to say, it’s a winner. In this installment follows Daisy “Little Flower” Anderson. She has lived her life on the outskirts of the MC and while she considers the club family, she has no desire to be an old lady or club girl. When she meets Preach, however, that all changes. But life has a way of really kicking you when your down, and Preach has to make a big choice that means he could lose it all. Can they ever be together? I have to say that this story really wrapped me up in the MC’s world. I really liked Daisy and though that she was a different character than you normally get in MC books. She’s strong and knows what she wants, yet recognizes real love when it slaps her in the face. And Preach…oh man. He is hot as hell, but when he breaks Daisy it makes me want to break him. He spent a great deal of the book coming back into my good graces. You’ll have to read for yourself to see if he ever gets there. I will say that this installment really tells you more about club life, and more about Preach’s background which is something I was hugely curious about after book one. It filled in a lot of questions that I had from reading book one, so while this is technically a standalone, I think you’d get the most out of it if you read book one first. Overall, I really liked this story. It is a solid MC book which means there’s a lot of ups and downs, and Preach is a total douche, but somehow you learn to understand him. This is a 4 star read for me. Reviewed by Sara Squared for Crystal’s Many Reviewers *Copy Provided for review*

5 Hot MC Stars TITLE~ Renegade Reject (Renegade Sons MC #2) AUTHOR~ Emily Minton & Dawn Martens  GENRE~ Romance-New Adult-Bikers/MC PUBLISHED~ ARC PURCHASED/COST~ ARC for Review MY RATING~ 5 Stars SYNOPSIS~ (From Goodreads) Daisy “Little Flower” Anderson has lived her entire life on the sidelines of the Renegade Sons MC. Her father is a member, and her mother a club whore turned old lady. Not wanting to follow their footsteps, she chose a different path; one that keeps her close to the biker family she loves, but out of the club. Struggling to keep it together, she never thought she would have anything of her own, until she met Preach. He is everything she swore she didn't want in life. One night of passion leads to unexpected consequences, and she knows, now more than ever, it’s time to move forward. Garrett “Preach” Austin lived his life caught in his father’s iron fist. He never thought he would want anything more than freedom from his past, until he met his “Little Flower”. She shows him there is more to life than pain.  Preach has a secret; one that forces him to choose between Daisy and his brothers. Even though he loves Daisy, the Renegade Sons are the only true family he has. He knows he can’t have her, yet he can’t let her go. When Daisy moves on, Preach realizes what he’s lost. Can he prove that he’s the man for her, or is he too late? MY THOUGHTS~  I chose to read this book because I read and really liked the first book in the series.  Firstly, the authors, Emily Minton and Dawn Martens, are an amazing writing duo. They seem to work so well together! They really do excellent work. If i didn't know ahead of time, I honestly would have had no idea that all the writing didn't come from one single author rather than it being a combined effort.They're THAT talented! This second book in the Renegade Sons MC series, Renegade Reject, was an awesome read and captivated me all the way through. In my opinion, this one was actually better than the first book and that's really saying something! I'm definitely hooked and will be reading any and all of the books to follow in this series. I have to say that I'm not a huge fan of the time gaps in these books. Although, the spans in Renegade Reject are significantly shorter than the ones in Renegade Lady. However, I also can appreciate the gaps since they provide for a more detailed description of the past which gives a deeper feel for the characters. In that way, the characters are extremely well developed. I love that aspect. I suppose, I just feel like I've missed out in those time periods that were skipped. The authors do a good job of recounting important things that had happened then, though. Overall, Renegade Reject is a winner by my standards. The biker/MC is there as is the grit. Those are a must for me in a biker book. I loved that we got to see more of Kidd & Ice as well as the back story and dynamic with Wayne, Holt, and Mary. Loved it all!

Annnnd they’ve done it again! Another phenomenal book in the Renegade Sons MC Series! The characters are gritty and real. The story will make you want to do all sorts of things to Preach. Some good, some not so good. I was glued to my tablet from the very first word and even skipped dinner because I didn’t want to put it down long enough to make myself something to eat. Preach and Daisy are quite the couple. In some ways they remind me of Kidd and Jenna from book 1 but yet they’re still their own people. Preach’s secret drives a wedge between them and they have to wade through a lot of crap. In the mean time, Daisy grows up and matures from the naïve 18 she starts out as. They both have demons to deal with but they really are great for each other. The personalities of the characters in these books are fun sometimes and gritty a lot of the time. There’s no sugar coating going on here that’s for sure. The story line is not quite as dark as book 1 but isn’t short of drama or crazy antagonists. The story flowed really well and scenes transitioned smoothly. I found the main characters (and most of the supporting ones) very likeable despite their flaws. They seemed like real people and came to life easily in my mind as I read the story. If you’re a fan of MC books (and even if you aren’t) I really recommend this book (but start with book 1). 5 out of 5 freaking fantastic stars!

Preach and Daisy's story WOW! Loved IT! Reviewed by: Red's Hot Reads <i> 5 Stars!!!!  I was hooked from the beginning. This series is so angsty and this book did not disappoint in this department. I almost had heart failure on a few occasions. I yelled, cursed and shouted out my happiness in this book. The self-inflicted emotional rollercoaster you get on is absolutely crazy. I laughed, cried, my heart filled with joy and broke the next page but in the end I am glad I hung on tight. It was a glorious ride. Preach and Daisy have an extremely rough history. Oh my gosh Daisy is a stubborn one. Preach is stubborn too but in a different way (a more protective way). His love is always there he just makes a few poor choices that put that love to the ultimate test. Daisy tries to be strong enough for the both of them but the longer she has to hold on her grip is slipping. The back and forth between these two is off the charts crazy. I love that you get to see all the other favorite characters from both books and watch the series continue. I am a huge fan of MC books and this book will be added as one of my favorites. I loved book one and love this installment just as much. It can only get better and I cannot wait for Timber and Tabitha&rsquo;s story. I really want all the guys to get an HEA. We will have to see. Dawn and Emily write beautifully dirty. The sex is scorching hot and the love story is even hotter. The flow of the story was perfect and leaves you set up for the next book. I will be recommending this book to all. I also recommend that you read the first installment &ldquo;Renegade Lady&rdquo; to get the whole experience of The Renegade Sons MC. You will not be disappointed one bit.  My Favorite Quotes: &ldquo;You should be told you&rsquo;re beautiful every day.&rdquo; &ndash; Preach As soon as my lips touch hers, I know I&rsquo;m done for. My life of easy p***y is over. This girl owns me. &ndash; Preach I can&rsquo;t take away those memories but I can love you every day for the rest of my life.&rdquo; - Daisy</i>

This is book 2 in the Renegade Sons MC It can be read as a stand alone.  I did read book one. Loved it. Was scared that I wouldn't love this one as much as I did the first. I was wrong. I liked this one more.  This is Daisy and Garrett's &quot;Preach&quot; story.  I gave this book 5 stars.  Daisy has lived her life on the sidelines of the MC. Her father is a member, and her mother a club whore turned old lady. Not wanting to be anything like they were she chooses to live her life different.  One where she is close to the family that she loves but not active.  Struggling to keep her life together. She kinda gives up.  Until she met Preach. He is everything she swore she didn't want in life. And one night changes it all. Garrett &quot;Preach&quot; lived his life for his father and for the things his father wanted.  He never thought he would want anything more than freedom. That is until he Meets Daisy his &quot;little flower.&quot; She shows him there is more to life than pain.  But he has a secret; one that forces him to choose.  He does love Daisy, but these are his brothers.  He knows he should let her go because he can't have her, but that is easier said then done. What is he going to do? Especially when she moves on can he prove to her that he is the man for her?  Again wholly hotness!!!!! This book was smoking hot, and kept me glued to the pages the whole time, I didn't want to put it down. This book was well written and I fell in love with these two characters from the very beginning. All I can say is she has done it again! She kept me wanting more and more! I love this series. Thank you again for a smoking hot book! I look forward to reading more of your work! &lt;3

It was as good as the first. I like the story line. My only complaint is that in Lady it says Lula is Holt and Mary's. In reject she is Wayne and Mary's. An author not having their facts straight in there own series is a pet peeve of mine.

Renegade Reject by Emily Minton and Dawn Martens is fantastic.  I so enjoyed book 1, Renegade Lady, that I did not hesitate to jump right in to this one.  I'm not sure I understand who is the Reject in the title, as the is all just one big, dysfunctional, yet happy, family.  I really enjoy the characters and cannot wait to see who's story these authors choose next.

Have I mentioned how much I love the Renegade Sons MC series? Dawn Martens and Emily Minton does it again! These authors have the ability to grab hold of their readers from the very beginning and keeps them on the edge of their seats till the very end. I loved Renegade Lady but I must say, I could not put down Renegade Reject. I read this book from beginning to end in less than 6 hours! Raw, edgy and unpredictable, this book has everything a reader wants in a book... angst, romance, jealousy, anger, fear, guilt, heartache, drama, sadness, lust, a great story line and characters that makes you feel every emotion that they are going through. I can't get enough of the Renegade Series! Can't wait for Renegade Angel.

I read two books this week that left me speechless. Wide eyed and dumbfounded. These books took the plain fairytale story and drove off the cliff and landed perfectly on two wheels. I read these two books(which BTW are not skimmed down to 120 pages like some) in a matter of 4 days. I am glad I read both together, Renegade Ladies being the first. The stories intermingle and you do not get the full story until you finish Renegade Reject. Yes, I felt book reading exhausted¿. Renegade Reject, you only want it to end one way. But the story cannot be a real story unless you take it to the limits. A Motorcycle Club scares the crap out of me. It may be partly because of certain scenes that happen with Daisy and her dismay of a family. Daisy is one of my new favorite female characters. She still has a heart of gold despite all the horrible things that everyone puts her thru. I could write a short story about Daisy and Preach in Renegade Reject but I won't this time. You will have to read both books. Absolutely worth your time. I rate the book a 4.5. Truly, I can tell you that if you don't feel love, heartache and anger from reading this, you must be dead. This book is Extremely graphic, but you get the gritty details that are sometimes missed in other books
