2.5 stars. Bail Out by Jade Chandler is book one in her Brotherhood Bonds series which is a spin-off of her Jericho Brotherhood series. I was really excited to read about a female bounty hunter. Unfortunately, I struggled to finish this one. Elle's a bounty hunter for her father's company, and she's trained to take over the business. Her father, however, has other plans. He wants grandchildren, and he's determined to get them. Even if it means making a deal with his daughter that she can't hope to meet. Rebel is trying to make a name for himself in the bonds business, but his competition is taking his game. Before he knows it, Rebel's in over his head with a female bounty hunter who may just be his match. But Rebel isn't looking for love... The female bounty hunter aspect initially peaked my interest. I wanted to see a woman on top in this blue-collar field, kicking butt and taking names to bring these criminals in. The first half exceeded my expectations. I loved Elle's determination, and she really gets blindsided by her father. Image training all of your life, competing with men day-in and day-out to make a name for yourself, only to potentially lose it all. She needs to do the impossible to have a chance at keeping her business. So far so good. I enjoyed Rebel too. Rebel's found acceptance in the MC brotherhood, and he doesn't want to let them down. He needs his bond business to take off. The wind is knocked out of him by bombshell, Elle. Watching these two work together was great. Rebel's a good guy hero biker, but still has that commanding presence. (Total catnip!) The MC part was really well done too. I have a love/hate relationship with MC stories, but I like how the brotherhood is legitimate (no gun running, drug dealing, etc.). It's a refreshing take, and it sets this book apart. The last half, however, everything fell apart on me. There's less focus on the bounty hunting aspect that I loved. It would have been okay if the story moved forward at all. Instead, the scenes became repetitive. Some odd elements come out of left field too. I like how Elle steps out of her comfort zone (boy, howdy!), but a few times something she did--and suggested!--had me scratching my head. I didn't understand the point of it all. It just felt thrown in there for an added scene. This is also when another element with Rebel comes into play--a not-quite BDSM element. It left me completely flabbergasted on what it even means or how it's essential to the story. It changed nothing. I think that's what bothers me the most. The characters lost a little of their spark to fit into this mold or new role they're given. It felt forced, and it added nothing to the overall book but take away from the couple's chemistry (or to have more bounty hunting fun!). If you like alpha bikers, Rebel definitely commands the page. Elle's also a tough cookie. I think it just comes down to a personal preference, and that I just couldn't find the same enthusiasm for the characters in the last half that I did in the beginning.

Elle Jackson is a kick@ss bail bondswoman. She does everything the guys do, better, backwards in heels. She was supposed to take over the family business but now her father wants grandkids and is playing games with Elles’ future. Now she has thirty days to either tie the knot or come up with five hundred grand in bonds. Elle is determined to beat her father at his own game. His father didn’t make ridiculous demands for him to inherit. Rebel is trying to make his bond company work. He wants his contribution to the Jericho Brotherhood Motorcycle Club to be the best. When a sexy blonde steals his bond he is angry but intrigued. No matter how well intentioned Elle’s father is a douche. I loved that Elle didn’t take the easier route straight off. I loved that she stuck to her guns. Rebel doesn’t know what is about to hit him in the form of Elle and we get to sit back and watch the fireworks happen. I enjoyed the book but got the feeling it is a spin-off of another series which I haven’t read. All in all this is a hell of a ride.

I love Jade's books. I finished this in a couple of hours, it was that good ! I actually gave this 4 1/2 stars because the ending felt rushed and almost a let down compared to the rest of the book.

This one was 3.5 stars for me. I really liked both main characters, and I love the fake marriage/forced proximity trope, but there were a few things that put me off of giving it a 4-star rating. This is apparently a spin-off of this author's Jericho Brotherhood series, but I didn't feel like I was missing anything vital. This was a standalone story, and it was pretty self-contained. Elle Jackson is a bounty hunter. It's her family business and it's in her blood. Her daddy owns the business now, and it's been passed down in her family for generations. Her dad is the only family she has, since her mom died giving birth to her, so she's learned the business inside out from the time she was a little girl. She's always had plans to take over upon her dad's retirement. He, apparently, has other ideas. After his heart attack a couple years ago, he's been obsessed with getting Elle married off and her providing him with grandchildren. She has NO interest in that plan, but he's not hearing that. They agree to 2 possible conditions for her to inherit. One seems impossible. One, her pride won't let her go through with. Rebel is a member of Jericho Brotherhood MC. He's also the owner of Brotherhood Bonds, and a fellow bounty hunter. When Elle sneaks a bounty out from under him, he's pissed, but also intrigued by her beauty and strength. He's been on his own for a long time, and has no family he associates with except his MC brothers, so he recognizes Elle's predicament, and offers to help her. Neither of them knows what they're getting into. They both vow to not catch any feelings. Famous last words... Rebel and Elle had a great connection and instant chemistry. I really loved their banter, and their obvious similarities, both in their temperaments, and in their lives in general. They really got each other from the start, even before they really knew one another, and I loved that. There were some surprises about Rebel's personality that kind of came out of nowhere, but I feel like if I had read the prior series, I would have known more about him and his brothers, and it might not have been such a surprise. Elle was a total badass, and I loved that she didn't really need anyone's help to collar bad guys. She's a double black belt, and she can take them down on her own. But, they really like working together, and I loved that too. Elle's dad was really acting like a nightmare, and he was breaking her heart, thinking he knew best. It made me so sad for her, and I wanted her to win. Rebel's brothers were very entertaining, as was his friend Charlie. Elle's best friend Jess was hilarious as well, and I'm hoping we get to learn more about her back story. I'm sure it will be fascinating and fun, just like her. I will definitely look forward to reading more stories in this series, as I'm invested in many of the side characters. Also, now that I know all the ins and outs of their particular MC, I don't feel I would be thrown a curve ball again regarding any of their proclivities. I definitely enjoyed this book, and I would recommend it. I really liked that while some of the typical MC culture was represented, this club didn't run guns or drugs, or anything so seedy. If you're a fan of MC romance, I would expect you to be a fan of this!

Book Info EDITION Ebook Published August 14, 2017 by Carina Press ISBN 9781488030581 Edition Language English Other Editions None found Source:Netgalley EARC Buy book from Amazon B&N My Thoughts The initial trilogy based on the Jericho Brotherhood by then a new-to-me author introduced this world of violence, strong men and women, passion, lust, action and romantic pairings that I became addicted to so when it ended glad to find this spin-off that starts a new trilogy set in the same world. Bail bonding is apparently on the same par as repo-work, down and dirty upon occasion. At least the contracts Elle and Rebel take on seem to be as they track down the men and women who flee justice for the money offered for their capture. With Bail Out readers are taken deeper into the world of The Jericho Brotherhood MC , also learning more about their allies as well as their enemies. Like any good story Bail Out embraces change while it also highlights the value of cooperation even while competing in the same business as Elle and Rebel are doing. Delving deeper into key MC members while also introducing new characters this book is filled with action, romance, violence and fills in some gaps that were left when the initial trilogy ended.

I really enjoyed this one! Elle was a wonderful strong female character and about the only man that could tame her would be an equally strong bad boy biker. Rebel fits that bill quite nicely. A biker in a fake marriage was an interesting plot line but the author did a great job with it. Rebel definitely brought out Elle's naughty side and it was a nice steamy read. Looking forward to more of this. I highly recommend this one.

Bail Out by Jade Chandler Brotherhood Bonds #1 Elle is a bounty hunter – a good one – the fourth generation in the family business. She expects to take over when her father retires. Well, as the story begins her father has suddenly set up stipulations that don’t sit well with her. So, with her name, the business and more on the line she sets out to make sure she does not lose the game her father has set in motion. Step into the picture Rebel – a member of the Jericho Brotherhood MC - who also runs a bond business. He first sees her while she is working to take someone in for the money…someone he planned to get the fee for. One thing leads to another and before long they are working together for a common purpose and that purpose includes helping Elle get the family business. This book has romance, passion, heat, chemistry, biker club issues, fights, intrigue, family, friends, appearances from characters that starred in the Jericho Brotherhood series and the potential for a HEA if Rebel and Elle can communicate and figure things out. I have to say there is more than one character I would like to read the story of so am hoping this series and the Jericho Brotherhood will have many more books out in the future. Thank you to NetGalley and Carina Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars
