The path to Hell is paved with good intentions, and so are the highways where Lucifer's Saints, Demon's Bastards and White Knights call the shots.
Love isn't patient, love isn't always kind and love certainly doesn't love you. Gisela Jackson understands the sentiment more than most. The daughter of an original gangster father and a socialite mother, her life has come full circle. She's lost the one man she's always loved until life gives them a second chance...
Cillian "Killer" Cox, Vice President for the Lucifer's Saints Motorcycle Club, has had a crappy hand in life. The son of the Saints' President, he's never questioned the orders he's given to maintain the order, brotherhood and safety of the club or their community. Until now. An encounter with his childhood sweetheart and a moment of weakness will change his life -- and hers -- forever.
This is Cillian and Gisela's story of love, loss, heartache, betrayal and pain. It's not pretty but neither is life so proceed with caution.

I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review. I gave this book 5 stars. This is book #1 in The Rough Riders Series. First let me say this. This is a book about a Biker Club, it is not pretty, it is not perfect. I have seen several reviews that say that could not get into the book. Or that there was too much information given. I honestly did have a hard time at first getting into it, because of all the information about the club etc.. BUT I do feel the information should have been given. I do believe this book is worthy of the 5 star rating that I have given it. It is not just focused on two characters, it is focused on the club too. And that makes for a great series that I am sure will be amazing! This is Cillian and Gisela's story. Gisela met Cillian when she was 15, they were from opposite sides of the track and although I am sure if their parents knew they were together they probably would have forbid it. Not until something happens and her parents find out about their relationship do they put a stop to it. Now years later, Gisela is still in love with Cillian (pronounced with a K)Every relationship that she has had has been compared to him. She has become a successful Lawyer just as her parents wanted. To them she is picture perfect. But Gisela is not happy, she is in love with Cillian. Cillian has always carried a torch for his beautiful Gisela, but once her parents put the stop to him seeing her. There wasn't any way he was going to get her back. He moved on and married a woman that is a nightmare. She sucks at being an old lady and all she does is sleep with all his brothers and anyone else that will take her. She is a drug addict and a Whore. What could be worse is that Cillian sleeps around with everyone too. Club business causes him having to seek out Gisela's help, and of course she is in love with him she would never turn him down no matter what the cost. This story is not only about Gisela and Cillian finding love again. It is about the dangers of being in a bike club and the things that they do. How they back each other up, how they come together as one family. It was a beautiful story, with some very sad circumstances. It was a rough book but that is what you get when you pick up a biker book. It had hot steamy sex in it and great surprises. I for one loved Gisela she was a strong leading lady. She did what she believed in and never compromised herself. I do believe that there is a lot we would do for love, especially the one that we know is the one. And that is what Gisela did, but I still think she hung onto who she was. And that is what drew Cillian to her. Because she was different. And she made him a better person, instead of just being by his side as a girl. She was by his side as a woman who loved him, and who wanted what was best for him. And also understood his life choices and the things that he had to do. There were parts where I wanted to kill Cillian, but he is a biker that is how he was raised. But all in all he respected Gisela and knew she was not just some ordinary stupid girl that was going to stand by his side and do nothing. And that is what he wanted, that is why he loves her so much because of the person she is. If she would have swallowed all the things that he did and said nothing this would have been a very different book, because I don't think that Cillian would have ever looked at her twice. Thank you for this great book, I can't wait to read what is coming up next for these two and in the future with this club. <3
Selene Chardou did a great job with this book, i was surprised that it was indeed a standalone even though it is part of a bigger series. I recommend reading them all because they are just that good. The characters have a real life, no mushy mumu BS that makes you feel like "this could never happen" its real. Deep inside we all want to be that MC VP's old lady don't we. Cillian was a bad boy with a problem, he doesn't WANT to be a killer but that's what he grew up in, its all he knows. That and the MC. He has habits picked up from being a biker all his life and these sometimes cause problems in the love he feels for Gisela, who isn't his wife. Gisela has loved one man her whole life. Her love kept her from getting serious with anyone else, and now he is back in her life and he needs her help. Her heartbreak feels so real you will cry, so keep tissue nearby. I loved this book and now have the whole series on my TBR list. This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
Hot!!! Cillian Cox is so sexy and all Alpha! I could not put this book down! The amount of passion, action, drama, & sexy scenes had me never wanting it to end! Gisela is one smart & headstrong woman who isn't afraid to go toe to toe with the most hardcore of bikers. She is no pushover, because coming from a family like hers you had to stay ahead of the game. Selene's books are in a class of their own. Her attention to detail is exquisite! If you want one hell of a hot read you have to check out Deadly Seduction!
Story is good but flows slowly and a little hard to get into. Doesn't flow smoothly. Story line is week
