“I was never scared of dying until I loved you.”

The shy single dad and the gentle assassin. Domestic bliss and a bloodthirsty revenge mission battle it out in the emotional fifth installment of the bestselling Rebel Kings MC series.


I met a dude in a bar once. Tall and strong, he had moon-blue eyes and tawny hair, and he moved with the grace of a lion.

It didn’t pan out, but that’s a theme in my life, and I’ve spent the last five years knowing that kind stranger dodged a bullet.

Divorced and miserable, I’m not exactly a catch.

But the thing is, that man…he’s not a stranger anymore.

And he’s as beautiful as I remember.

Everything you want in a fake boyfriend, right?

Don’t ask me to explain that one. But let me tell you this: I thought my biggest fear was losing my daughter. Then Folk came home, and I realised you can give your heart to more than one person.

We have a second chance. Goddamn, we deserve it.

But this life, man. It’s a journey.

And there’s no guarantees we’ll both make it to the end.

Reluctant Renegade is an MM/gay biker/MC romance. Content warnings for everything you’d expect in a sizzling biker romance, in addition to divorce/custody stress, addiction, and mental health rep.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is definitely not a standalone and the rest of the series is seriously amazing so just do yourself a favor and read all of them. This is a series I will listen to over and over again (once they’re all on audio). I really think this is my favorite series of hers.

Did we know Folk was such a bada$$…like Alexei level bada$$. How did I miss that in the last couple of books? Folk and Alexei work together a lot in this book so we get to see him in action and just wow. They make a great team, and their banter is surprisingly entertaining. Plus, he’s super sweet and great with Ivy and his own family.

Decoy’s ex-wife is still a POS but we do get some resolution with that mess. I felt so bad for Decoy…he just wants to live his life with his child and find someone special to share it with. He doesn’t think he can have that because his ex is a piece of work. Folk shows him he can have it all. These two are amazing together and I’m glad we finally got their story.

There is some closer with the MC side of things that we’ve been waiting on so I’m wondering what is next. The Russians leave some questions that need to be answered. All the guys are in this book. Cam shows us his big boss vibes a couple of times. Saint and Rubi sometimes steal the show because…Saint and Rubi.

Locke has some mystery surrounding him which has me intrigued for the next book with the unholy trinity.

I’m just over here waiting for the audio on books 4 and 5.
