Shades hadn’t seen Skylar in years, and now here she was, the love of his life, riding back into his life on the back of a brother’s bike.
For years after Shades had lost Skylar, he’d tried satisfying the emptiness of losing her with booze, pussy and the club. He’d turned his frustration at having to give her up into a determination to climb the ranks of the club, but he hadn’t counted on the fact that the pull he’d felt toward Skylar had only laid dormant in him all these years. Or that all it would take to reignite it was just one look at her. And he sure as hell hadn’t counted on her showing up on the back of a brother’s bike.
When Skylar finally comes back into his life, will his desire for earning that VP patch stand in the way of any future he could have with her?
And when a rival MC shows up looking for Skylar, things go from complicated to damn near impossible.
Does Skylar come with more baggage than Shades is willing to sign up for?

This scene is even more than his twisted soul can stomach. Compelled to intercede and save her, he has no idea his whole world is about to change. He believes he’s doing the right thing until a secret she’s hiding makes him question if saving her may be the biggest mistake of his life. The two strike a deal, a deal they may both come to regret. Can his soul be saved? Is there anything he won’t do for her? Are there some things he just can’t? And are there some things she can never forgive?

When outlaw biker Tyler “Crash” Shaw volunteers his services to his club brother, Cole Austin, VP of the Evil Dead MC, he suddenly finds himself a rich girl’s bodyguard and babysitter. Well, it’s a bitch of a job, but maybe he can have a little fun with it. He thinks he’ll get a kick out of teaching the pampered stuck-up girl a lesson or two on how the other half lives. She can cook and clean for him in exchange for his help. No free ride for her. He intends to teach her that money can’t buy her way through life.

The world saw a classy pulled-together wealthy lady. All he saw was a spoiled little rich girl. A troublemaker, that’s all she was to him. Until she revealed the shattered girl inside that tried so hard to hide her weaknesses and fears with a façade of arrogance, attitude, and sass.

He’d tear down those walls she tried so hard to build, if only she’d let him.

Could the love of a man so wrong for her be the only one to save her?

And in his darkest hour, would her love be enough to save him?

From the MC’s California charter in San Jose, to the casinos and brothels of Reno, to brother charters in the Deep South, this story will take you on a ride of highs and lows that lead ultimately to redemption.

Michel’s Review

Looking for an intense Biker book?  Looking for a Biker series that is very realistic and portrays the lifestyle with complete honesty?  I highly recommend The Outlaw Series featuring The Evil Dead MC by Nicole James.  The Outlaw series features members from the various chapters of The Evil Dead MC.  The chapters range from the west coast to the deep south.  The readers get inside of each of these area chapters and gets a feel for the dynamics that hold the Evil Dead MC together.  The dynamic characters are larger than life.  These hardcore badass Bikers live life by their own rules.  They are in a class by themselves.  The women that love these men are just as strong as the club that rules their lives.  They embrace their world completely.

This novel features the Birmingham, AL. chapter, the Gulfcoast chapter, and the New Orleans chapter of the Evil Dead MC.

Shades and Skylar were young lovers when Shades was a mere recruit.  Their affair was a forbidden taboo by the club.  Although they desperately tried to defy the odds, their secret affair was exposed.  Shades had to choose between the woman he loved and the life he needed to be a part of.  Their relationship ended on a very ugly note.  Both Sky and Shades were torn to shreds.

Shades chose the Evil Dead MC.

Skylar chose to leave their world and moved on to Atlanta to build a new life.  She has led a fruitful and successful life for the last ten years until she meets Rusty.  Rusty is a member of the Devil Kings MC.  They are the rival club and sworn enemies of the Evil Dead MC.  Her involvement with Rusty ends in a very bad way when she finds him murdered in his own bed with her knife.  The suspicious evidence clearly makes Skylar look guilty.  She becomes a target for the Devil Kings MC.  Her life is in danger.  She flees Atlanta, with the help of her boss, and ends up back in Birmingham, Al.  The very place she swore she would never return to.  The  place that holds every ugly memory she experienced in her young life.  The  place where her heart was broken beyond repair.  The place where Shades lives his life in the Evil Dead MC.

Shades has always regretted how he handled the situation with Skylar.  She was the only woman that ever touched his heart.  When he runs into her again, he vows he will make amends no matter what.  He will beg for her forgiveness.  He will prove that he is a mature man that can give her the love she deserves.  He is no longer a recruit.  His position in the Evil Dead MC is secure.

As Skylar and Shades find their way back to one another, new situations will pop up that can tear them apart.  Her trouble with their enemies and his position with the Evil Dead will affect how their relationship moves forward.  Secrets will be exposed.  New problems will build upon the old problems.  Once again Shades will be put in the position of choosing the Evil Dead MC or Skylar.  This time around he plans on holding onto both his own way.  There will be nothing holding him back or getting in his way.

This book was loaded with passion, erotic romance, high octane suspense, hardcore scenes, and larger than life characters.  Their story will have the reader glued to the pages.   It is wonderful to watch two people grow from young lovers to mature passionate adults. Their lifestyle isn’t easy, but it’s theirs and they are going to live it to the fullest.

I have loved every book in this series.  The Outlaw Series has the same excellent quality that the popular biker series like the Undeniable Series and Reapers MC Series have.  All of the characters, including the secondary characters, are powerhouses in their own rights.  I am looking forward to future books in this series.  I am hoping that Blood and Ghost each get their stories told.  I am looking forward to meeting the women that bring these bad boys to their knees.

Nicole James is an amazing storyteller.  Don’t miss out on her fantastic books.
