Publisher's Summary

Rusty

I’m the president of the Devil Kings Atlanta MC. With a fractious club to rebuild and a revolving door on my bedroom, the last thing I need is 5’4” of sex-on-a-stick trouble.

When a mysterious beauty shows up with her playmate’s body, dark soulful eyes, and a bagful of cash, I’m willing to make an exception. 

I don’t fully trust her, but she needs my help. 

Ashlynn

Things are finally good. I’m one of the best high-roller hostesses on the strip. But I’ve lived in Las Vegas two years and have yet to unpack my bags. Why? Because shit always goes sideways. 

I should have known this time would be no different.

When I’m asked to hostess a private poker game at a mega exclusive hotel penthouse, I end up in the proverbial wrong place at the wrong time.

I’m the sole witness to a double murder and I’m suddenly on the run again, but this time I’m running for my life.

I get as far as Atlanta before my Porsche blows a tire. 

That’s when he shows up. Dangerous. Drop-dead gorgeous. Scary badass biker. One I can’t take my eyes off. Maybe this town is as good as any to lay low.

When trouble tracks me down, I want to run again. But he has other plans.

He’ll protect me — for a price.

My willing body in his big bed — all night, every night.

That’s the dirty deal he offers.

Dare I accept?

Where the President of the Devil Kings is involved, there are no rules. 

But I’ll stand toe-to-toe with him and make it out of this bargain with my heart intact. Because in the end, running is what I do best.

A VERY ENTERTAINING LISTEN

An addictive story as the heroine suddenly gets thrust into a nightmare when she’s in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnesses something she shouldn’t of seen. So, with Mafia men hot on her trail, Ashlynn is forced to run. And, when her flash ride eventually gets a flat, she’ll end up getting more than ‘curb assistance’ from the handsome sexy biker the second time they meet. Because this sex-on-a-stick leather clad sinner will become her lifeline.. her lover.. her savior. Rusty is the President of the Devil Kings MC and, when he bumps into the beauty with the flat tire again.. and now she’s buying a gun, he is going to do all he can to get his body closer to hers. There’s delicious sizzles and passion between them.. however, Ashlynn has secrets.. and those secrets will bring chaos to his, and the Club’s, doors. But what’s a possessive alpha biker going to do when someone dares to threaten his woman? This was a sexy ride as feisty Ashlynn tries to keep Rusty from getting involved.. and it leads to a very enjoyable story with tingles, tension, danger and great characters. The dual POV storyline was wonderfully brought to life by Ryan and Virginia and the duet-style narration made the plot flow smoothly with friction, fireworks and feels. WORTH A CREDIT? Yes, it ticked my boxes.. and now I’m looking forward to Gypsy’s story next.

Easy listen!

I listened to this all at once. It was a great way to pass the rainy weekend away. I did enjoy this story, although there were times I was frustrated that the h held on to her "secret" for so long. Also I was not satisfied with the H "protecting" her when he had no idea what he was up against. Other than it not seeming plausible, I enjoyed the listen. Both performers did a very good job and I was new to Virginia Rose. I would listen to her again.

Dirty Dealing

Rusty’s reputation with the Evil Dead MC left something to be desired. I like that in this series we got to know what was happening behind the scenes at his club, The Devil Kings, during that same timeline. We also got a deeper dive into who Rusty was.

Ashlynn was an independent woman who found herself in a tough predicament that causes her to go on the run. Why someone would go on the run in a bright yellow expensive car is beyond me 🤷🏻‍♀️ but thank goodness it’s fiction 😂

I liked these two together despite some annoyance for Ashlynn’s propensity to keep secrets when being open would’ve made things way easier.

Ryan West and Virginia Rose did an incredible job with their narration. The quality was fantastic with very smooth transitions in speech. I was genuinely impressed. Also, Ryan West could read a shopping list and I’d still be interested 😳 😝

Great addition to the series!

If so, these are the books for you! I love them and this series of the Devil Kings MC just gets better and better!! Ryan West and Virginia Rose did such a great job narrating!!!! Can't wait to read the next one!!!❤❤

great continuation of the series

Book 2 in the Devil Kings MC series, narrated duet style with Ryan West and Virginia Rose.
I really loved Ashlynn's character for her independence and strong personality, she's a great fit for Rusty.
Rusty, who became the new president of the club with Reno as his VP, is alpha, protective and I think he's laid back enough to counter Ash's nervous energy.
Great continuation of the series and I love both narrators. Hopefully they narrate the next one as well!

Great MC read!

I have enjoyed this series and plan to continue! I love how a male voice reads all the male parts and a female reads female. makes it a much more enjoyable listen.

Dirty Deals

Dirty Deals by Nicole James is the second book in the Devil Kings MC series. This installment gives us Rusty, the president of the Devil Kings MC story. Rusty intrigued me when I met him in Dirty Deeds, and I wanted to learn more about him. Therefore, when the opportunity came for me to read and review his story, I did not hesitate.

The story began on an interesting note. Immediately the reader is plunged into the glamorous world of high-stakes gambling and luxury accommodations for the rich and famous. This is the world Ashlyn works in. It’s her job to ensure that her clients have an enjoyable time whether they are winning or losing. All seems to be going well until that fateful night when she witnessed a double murder. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Terrified, she made a run for it, but not before the perpetrators saw her. Recognizing the danger she faces, she immediately left Las Vegas.

While making her escape, she got a flat tyre, leaving her to contemplate her next move. At that moment Rusty came to her rescue. Leery of him, she grudgingly accepted his offer of help. An offer which would lead to the development of a relationship and so much more.

I had a good time with this installment. I found it to be better than the first book, despite some unbelievable moments. Danger and sexy times were the mainstay of the story.

Rusty is drawn to the sassy beauty who clearly is running from something or someone. He wants to help her if only she would trust him. Ashlyn fears putting her trust in Rusty and thwarted his flirtatious attempts, which never lasted long. Soon he enticed her with a job and promises of passionate nights.

The characters felt underdeveloped. I loved them both, but it would have been nice to have had more background information on both of them. I wondered how the romance between these two would work as they had nothing in common. Ashlyn lived a life of glamour while Rusty’s world is somewhat on the shady side. Ashlyn struck me as the type who can adapt to any situation.

My issue with Ashlyn had to do with her refusal to tell Rusty the truth in relation to who wanted to hurt her. He gave many opportunities to come straight, but she kept twisting the truth.

The story ended on a romantic note, with the epilogue dropping hints regarding the next installment. I am looking forward to that one.

Narration

Virginia Rose and Ryan West continues to narrate. I enjoyed their collaboration, where Virginia did all the female voices and Ryan the male ones. Their portrayal of the characters were spot on, making easy to distinguish between the different voices. Their range and tone made for a great listening experience.

Overall, Dirty Deals provides the perfect escape for those times you are looking for a quick and spicy read.

Sizzling Biker Romance Superb Dual Narration Work

After witnessing a member of the mafia kill a couple people, she jumps in her Porsche and hightails it from Vegas until a flat tire brings her to the notice of a ruggedly, handsome MC Prez who is determined to puzzle out her secrets. A sizzling hot attraction, a cross between a biker romance and suspense, and engaging characters in a book told by dual narrators was a temptation I wasn't about to miss.

Dirty Deals is the second in the Devil Kings MC series which I believe share the same world as the Evil Dead MC series. I jumped in without book one and had no trouble though the events of the past and most of the characters are all part of the earlier book.

Dirty Deals opens in the glitzy and glamorous world of high rollers and luxury accommodations for those who can afford it and Ashlynn is the one to make sure her clients get the full satisfactory experience while spending money at the hotel. Everything is going great until the night she sees two murders committed when in the wrong place at the wrong time. Her escape is seen by the killers who are associated with the mafia and she just has time to toss her ever-ready Go bag into the back of her fabulous yellow Porsche and take to the road in an adrenaline rush across the country. Her run comes to a halt just outside Atlanta when her tire goes flat. To her rescue comes a wickedly attractive guy sporting a biker club vest and a patch that shows he's the Prez of what she sees as a gang. With a tire iron to keep things from going sideways, she watches him give her tire a temporary fix and she thinks that is that until Rusty turns up and won't be put off. Not that she wants to see the back of him. In fact, it isn't long when she wants a man bad enough to considering staying. Eventually, her past will catch up and keeping Rusty won't be an option.

Rusty is dazzled by the classy, sassy gal who is running scared, but full of moxy. When she purchases a gun and keeps her bagged packed while always looking scared of something coming for her, he's no fool. He's seen a lot of trouble and some of it bad enough to need a gun for, but he's willing to take on Ashlynn's problems if she would just trust him. Meanwhile, he entices her with sexy nights in her bed, work at his custom motorcycle shop, and friends with his motorcycle club family. He wants her to care enough to trust him and unpack that bag, but when the trouble starts up, she gets that hunted look and he has to do everything he can to keep her safe.

Dirty Deals has some darker deeds in it with killing and hunting down a witness and including a motorcycle club recovering from a violent shake up, but for all that, I felt the tone was fairly light. It paced along swiftly and steadily. It got hot and spicy quickly once the romance pair had their first encounter, but it didn't stretch credibility too far since they are a little older and both have a take charge 'know-what-I-want' attitude. The build up to the romance conflict and the suspenseful climax was great and that ending was swoonworthy.

Ashlynn is an uber competent high-class hotel guest associate. She looks the part and is at the top of her game so that owning her 'baby', the yellow Porsche and a bank full of funds is normal. Whereas Rusty comes across as laid back and country in ways, but he is much more as the owner of a successful custom bike business and now president of an MC chapter with good leadership skills and able to keep his head while in danger. They seemed to different, but that sizzling attraction and Ashlynn's satisfaction with working in the shop office gave prove to a possibility.

My only issue was two-part. There were hints about Ashlynn and Dusty's backgrounds, but they remained mostly vague and undeveloped. I didn't get to know them as thoroughly as I would have liked. Just like, I was fine with them as characters and even liked their romance, but at the same time, it happened swiftly and there didn't seen enough in common to hold them together long term. I wanted more connections for them, I guess.

As to the narration, I was startled by how the two narrators worked together instead of taking turns with the chapters. Ryan West voiced all the male speakers and Dusty's point of view and Virginia Rose did the same for Ashlynn and the other female voices. Once I was adjusted to this style of narration, I was right back in the story and loving both their contributions. I've already enjoyed Ryan West's work before, but this was my first encounter with Virginia Rose. They nailed the voices so I was certain who was speaking, they had good emotional range and caught the tone of the book well, and their overall storytelling was fabulous.

All in all, I enjoyed this easy and quick book with sizzling romance, suspenseful action moments, and colorful backdrop. I was hooked by the tantalizing hints leading into the next book. And, I definitely want to experience more of the series on audio. Those who enjoy lighter biker and extra spicy romance should definitely pick this book/series up.

Really enjoyed

This was a really enjoyable book to listen to. I loved both characters in this, especially Ashlyn I thought she character was wonderful. The narrators did a great job, and loved their voices in this
