Overview

Tank
It had always been about the ride. My love for the ride is what fuels me. It’s what drives me. That freedom of the open road in front of you with not a damn thing holding you back is what I crave.
I don’t need much, shit I don’t want much out of life. My bike, my club, my brothers, my money, and occasionally a warm and willing women in my bed is what I need.
I liked my life that way. It works for me. I enjoyed the familiarity of it. But slowly things were changing. I can feel that change in the air. It's everywhere. There comes a point in your life where things just change. No matter how much I fight it. No matter how hard I hang on, it's changing. Whether by choice or not. For better or worse it gets turned upside down on its fucking head. The moment I laid eyes on her shit changed forever. Things were on their way to changing, but fuck if she didn't tip that shit right over. She hit me like a blow to the chest crippling me. Rocking my world. That girl completely blew everything I thought I wanted to shit. She took me on a wild ride and for better or worse she changed everything for me.
Lil
The loud rumble of pipes fills me with a sense of home. Deep gruff male voices remind me of nights spent sitting at the bar listening to the guys tell me stories. The smell of leather, grease, and smoke brings back memories of hot summer days spent around the compound. The sound of classic rock makes me want to dance. A group of rough and mean men makes me smile. Seeing a beautifully crafted bike makes my heart beat a little faster. A man in leather always makes me hot. The feel of the vibration through my body from a perfectly tuned bike takes me right back to my old life. Some things never change. Sometimes those things are never meant to change. Although much hadn't changed since I left, a few things had. The loss of loved ones, the addition of new ones. With one new addition to life things changed for me forever. My life will never be the same. He changed it all.

About the Author
I live in a small hick town right on the coast of good ol’ Washington State, about two hours outside of Seattle. Although I live in a small town don’t mistake my location for my love of all things country, because I’m a city girl through and through. My heart lives in the fast paced hustle and bustle of the city. I live with or right next door to my tribe, or as most know them, my family. My lovely, but nutty mother lives right next door with my hair brained grandma. I currently reside in my nut house with my strange, but wonderful fiancé and my wild as hell little monster boy. My biker mouthed, but funny and amazing little sister lives not too far away with my adorable nephew and hick down to his bones brother in law. I have an enormous love for music. I love it all. My sister and I go to as many concerts as humanly possible. But my passion is reading and writing. I have a love of all things book-related. If it has words, I’ll read it. I decided one day to write because my poor brain couldn’t take any more of the massive stories I had stored away. I figured hell I love them, maybe someone else will too. So I started writing and couldn’t stop. I still can’t stop. It’s now become an obsession. A lovely, lovely obsession.

Thank you!!

    Eh...

    So I purchased this because I'm a huge MC fan and this seemed like a great book. It had mixed reviews but I noticed that most of the negative reviews had nothing to do with the actual story line, it was readers complaining about the editing or rather lack of. So with that being said, I will say this story line was eh, okay. Not the best but not the worst. There was so much repetition, it was driving me insane. Lil was gone but then returned, she was back for months but kept going on about how happy she was to be back, how she missed this and that, she wouldn't shut up about it, trust me we got it the first ten times you said it. Her relationship with Tank was repetitive as well, it was on a loop, their lives revolved around each other. He would leave, she would stay, he would return, she would cuddle next to him and say she missed him, next day the same thing, the sex was hot but that's about it.

    Lil was tough and not a pushover, I loved that about her. She knew how to defend herself and her friends. She wasn't dependent on anyone. Her friends were annoying as hell, especially Peaches, what was up with her being naked all the time? What a weirdo.. There was a good amount of intrigue and action that kept the reader interested, too bad it mostly takes place towards the end of the book.

    Unfortunately, I think I was punked into buying an old version of this book as this copy was in badly need of editing. I was under the impression this book was rewritten and edited and a brand new BETTER version was out but that's not true or at least Barnes n Noble doesn't have the new version. It was hard pushing through a book when there were so many grammatical errors like these:

    fallow - follow
    gunna - gonna
    patient - patience
    aye - hey
    women - woman
    hoping - hopping
    chock - choke

    These were just the most repetitive errors, I'm not even including the misspelled words, the lack of punctuation marks, etc.

    Mistakes like these really do bring down the ratings of books, doesn't matter how good the story line is. In this case I would have given this book three stars because i wasn't too thrilled with Lil and Tank's story, but all of the grammatical errors brings down my rating to a two and the lack of editing brings it down to a one...hope book two is better!

    While I really do like this book, because I am a Sons of Anarchy

    While I really do like this book, because I am a Sons of Anarchy fan, I am extraordinarily disappointed with the spelling errors and the grammar errors, as well as the fact that it is like reading the book version of Sons of Anarchy. The editting staff for this author should all be terminated, as the word is FOLLOW not fallow, and that is only one of the mis-spelled words. I am surprised that the writers and creators of Sons of Anarchy are not suing this author and the publishing staff for the knock off (Tank is JAX). I hope ths author does something original versus watch a highly acclaimed tv series and then writes about it. I will not bother with any of the rest of this series as I have already watched all the seasons of Sons and therefore why bother.

    Don't bother

    I'm not sure how this book received even one good review. The typos were painful to read through, absolutely no flow to the story at all. First book I've purchased on my Nook that I haven't bothered to finish and I have 1500+ on here. Don't waste your money.

    Hot and Steamy!

    I wonder if the author pull this story from real life...if so, I want to meet Tank. This was a steamy book with enough chaos and turmoil to keep me reading.

    Good story and I really liked the characters. I hope the author

    Good story and I really liked the characters. I hope the author continues her books with the other members of the club, especially Low. But first she needs to terminate the entire editing staff. The misspelled words and grammatical errors were beyond belief!!!!!!! HIRE new people!!!

    Great

    After reading some of the reviews I almost didn't buy this book but I am so glad I decided to try it out any way. It was a good story and kept interested the whole way. The story flowed smoothly. There wasn't any slow or boring parts. Yes as a lot of books I have read lately it could of used better proof reading but it didn't take away from the story. I would really like to see Gin story and see these two in the next story as well because there should be more to thier story as well. I love series where everyones story keeps going into the next books so you don't leave people behind even when they aren't the main story any more. Those are the ones that make the best series.

    Pleasantly Surprised!

    The storyline is written well with just a few areas that rambled on with repetition past my tolerance forcing me to skim past them. The grammer mistakes I found are easily read past, but a third party read through and edit would not have hurt.

    The plot and characters kept my interest to the end. I would definitely read other books by this author and look forward to them. In my opinion Jaci J's writing skills are only going to improve and I can't wait to watch and read her books over time.

    Grammar counts

    When I purchased this book it had a 5 star rating. I seriously question how that is possible. I am hoping the author reads these reviews, like many of the independent new authors do. She definitely has some talent. However there were many problems with this book.

    First, on the positive side the story is compelling. The characters are likeable and the author does a good job of character building with SOME of the characters. Not so much with others. Case in point is Low. He's the President of the Club and the main character's father, integral to the story, yet he is relegated to almost nothing.

    The problems....and there were many. First, the spelling and grammatical errors in this book are so rampant that it distracts tremendously from the story. The word follow is spelled F-O-L-L-O-W, not fallow! That word is used so much in the book, that it became annoying. There are so many other misspelled words, wrongly used words and grammatical issues that I just became sad at the lack of education this author has received.
    Other problems included rushed story fragments, repetition, and a very rushed ending.

    This story had a lot of potential. I gave it 2 stars because it was a good idea. It was just poorly executed. A really good editor would help tremendously.
