Elle Jo: Forget the flowers and tender kisses. Tomorrow I'm marrying a man who took a bullet for me, and I don't have a choice.
Did I say he's an outlaw? Asphalt has slayed more men on the road and taken more women between the sheets than I can ever count. He's arrogant and savage. So why the hell can't I keep my lips off his when he gives me that smirk and whispers filthy things in my ear?
Asphalt: She thinks it's pretend, and club business is the only reason I'm slapping my brand on her skin. What a damned joke.
Elle got away from me years ago. Never again. I'm putting her where she belongs the second I hear "kiss the bride". Yeah, I told my brothers I'd go along with this sham marriage to save the Grizzlies MC. They don't know how bad I need her.
This isn't pretend anymore. The good-girl act won't save her this time. I'm keeping my bride.
Contains mature themes.

Just Another Audiobook Addict! Love listening to all types of romances, but occasionally need a good Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or a book with humor!
Outlaw's Vow is one of my favorite stories in this series! I loved Asphalt! He was such intense dominate alpha through and through, who was brutally honest, from the raw and gritty dirty talk, to telling you in your face what he thought. He was in no way a push over and would stand up to the best of them.
May contain some spoilers/teasers:
What started off as an arranged marriage to the daughter of another MC president, in an attempt to keep her father in line, ended up igniting the old flame between Asphalt and Elle to combustible levels. From the moment they said their "I do's", Asphalt plans on picking up where he and Elle left off four years ago, and heads straight to the tattoo parlor to have his name inked on her skin.
For Elle, there is no denying her feelings for Asphalt, he makes her hot and she wants him….badly! They quickly go from the pretend marriage to having scorching "set the sheets on fire sex"!
Unfortunately, their arranged marriage is not keeping her father in line. Elle soon finds herself dragged in deep in her father's mess, and may not escape without her own battle scars.
Well, I've said it three times before, but I will gladly say it again.….. Mason and Tatiana's performance was AWESOME! This duo narrates with such passion and emotions, they bring each scene to life! I will definitely be on the lookout for more stories narrated by either Mason or Tatiana.
Well worth the credit and time invested in this story and series.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Elle Jo (aka Ell-Bell by Asphalt) is the sheltered virgin daughter of Gil, the President of the Tacoma Chapter of the Grizzlies MC and, at 18, she had her very first kiss and it was wonderful. Austin is a few years older than Elle Jo, he's been her her neighbour for years and he's now part of her Dad's MC.... going by the name Asphalt. Their sexual chemistry has been brewing between them and, on that fateful night when they kissed, they were about to do more.... but suddenly Elle Jo's enraged Dad Gil was there and he was ready to kill the womanizing no good Asphalt. However, first he beat the shit out of Asphalt and then shot him - shouting and cursing at him as he did it. But Elle Jo's pleas for mercy finally got through to her Dad and instead of murdering Asphalt he banished him forever from the Tacoma Grizzles. And life went on... Asphalt joined the Redding MC in N.California and Elle Jo went off to College.... but their paths would cross again 4 years later.
Asphalt had done plenty of partying and whoring around but he never forgot his Ell-Bell or that heated kiss and was haunted by what could have been - so when an alliance between the Mother Chapter and the Tacoma Chapter had to be made, and a groom for Ell-Bell found, he wasn't about to let the opportunity go... to step up, to get the girl, to get revenge and to unearth Gil's secret deals with the enemy. When Elle Jo walked down the aisle she was shocked to see the face of her first crush and her first kiss.... the handsome now older face of Asphalt... the groom. But married life didn't start off well between them - Elle Jo was pissed that she'd been manipulated, that her planned future's been put on hold and that her body is still very interested in the brooding hot badass Biker. Then, just when they were getting closer, reconnecting with each other and having hot and steamy sex.... Gil called in another big favor from his daughter.... one that would force her to chose sides, lead to kidnapping, conflict, murder, torture, gang warfare and the Chinese Mafia.
Asphalt was your typical Alpha Biker - dirty talking, hot-headed, intensely possessive, demanding, very sexual and he was crazy about his Ell-Bell... and she was slowly coming around to her fate.... which was truly and willingly being Asphalt's Old Lady and not because of their sham of a marriage but because of love. Then Elle Jo got a phone call that changed everything and brought regrets, insecurities, danger, violence, bloodshed, drama and deaths and suddenly Asphalt was ignoring orders, breaking rules and desperately fighting to save the Club.... and his Ell-Bell. Which made this a gripping action-packed listen that was told from both POV's and the narrators were great - they brought the intense, the emotional, the dramatic, the hot, the nail-biting chapters and the cast of characters to life which made it easy to visualize each and every scene.
Worth a credit? Not all badass Bikers deserve a credit.... but Asphalt does because he protects, is loyal and risks everything to fight for the woman who's stolen his heart, turned his world upside down and changed his life. Hot, some violence, a lot of raw passion, a HEA ending.... and YES creditworthy.
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
For those of you who follow me .... you know I do like a GOOD MC story and I am absolutely not shy about stating whether the storyline is a good one. I enjoyed the plot of Elle and Asphalt. They had an attraction when they were younger .... and after being separated for a few years find themselves pawns in an MC drama. Asphalt was defecting from a local charter to the "mother" chapter when he was run out of town barely allowed to live by Elle's father, who was also the chapter president. Elle was truly shelter and daddy's little girl, but she is one strong woman!
It is narrated by one of my favorite female narrators Tatiana Sokolov ... and the talented Mason Lloyd. I used a credit and find it to be credit or sale worthy!
I just wish that she maded more of these absolutely phenomenal Book's I just love absolutely Miss snow incredible mind and I hope that she has more books out there for me to listen too
So ideas are running thin. I didn't mind this series but the creativity takes a dip, and the choices the main female character makes are so baffling, as the kids say, "I can't even."
I really enjoyed this book.
I have read it and listened to it.
I just love bikers
