Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Shadow Valley, where the Dirty Angels MC rules. Get ready to get Down & Dirty because this is Dex's story....

A stranger with a diary that contains a 30-year-old secret. One that could rip a brotherhood apart...

DAMC born and bred, Dex was never like the rest of his club brothers. Even though being a biker was his destiny, something was always missing. He could never figure out what it was or why until one day a woman walks into Shadow Valley Pawn. A sexy, badass woman who challenges him at every turn. 

When Brooke discovers the truth about her mother after her death, she comes to Shadow Valley. However, a simple trip to find answers twists into something she never expects. Not only that, but the successful businesswoman crosses paths with a biker who tests the control she loves so much both inside and outside of the bedroom.

Unexpectedly, Brooke not only flips a switch inside Dex and shows him his true self, she learns it's okay to give up some of the independence she holds on to so tightly.

But that's not the only discoveries the two make. One secret shakes the club to their core by exposing a member who's been destroying them from the inside out.

Note: This book can be listened to as a stand-alone. It includes lots of steamy scenes, biker slang, cursing, some violence and, of course, an HEA. If you like alpha males who like to take charge, this book is for you.

Oh Dex

Dex & Brooke

I really enjoyed having someone completely new to this life come in and twist all these bikers up on their heads. In a good way.
A lot of things have finally come to light and I really am happy because I think it was the perfect time for it to all happen the way it did.

Brooke’s independence is a true testament of how much she has survived in her life and how she deals with it. I love that she is a little dominate to Dex’s more submissive but don't mistake that as not being manly because he most definitely is all MAN. But I like that in the bedroom he lets her take the lead. It really made for an interesting story.

The give and take really helped me to connect with both the characters I think if it had been too easy I wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much as I did. There was a struggle but not unnecessary struggle. I hope this makes sense. ;)

I loved the narration Jacob Morgan is a phenomenal narrator and is in the same league as Ava, and we all know how I feel about her and her voice is a crush ok I admit is I have a lady crush on the woman. If you listened to her you would too that is all I am saying. ;)

What a shocker!

I’m going to start this off by saying as much as I love this series and all the characters this book didn’t capture my heart as much as all the other books. I loved Dex from the beginning but I found Brooke kindof hard to like. She was okay but she had a lot to live up to compared to all the other lovable ladies in the series and for me she just didn’t hit the target. I don’t think it was so much her but she was just way too strong willed for me and kindof rude at times. But other than that the story line itself was great and I did end up feeling very sorry for Brooke. She has had the worst stuff thrown at her time and time again and She was very lucky to have someone like Dex come into her life. The shocker of the book though comes with Pierce and what he did to betray his club/brothers because I never saw that coming! I’m not going to spoil it for anyone but holy moly Jeanne definitely through me for a loop with that bombshell and it was about time Pierce finally got what was coming to him. I also absolutely loved Ds reaction to the baby! It made my heart so happy!

Loving this series

This is another amazing ride with the Dirty Angels MC. I really enjoyed this story about Dex and Brooke. I love how the brothers tease each other and my heart hurt during other parts of the book. Brook is a strong female and she might have been too strong at times, I liked how Dex let her be herself. Another great read, you won't be disappointed.

Oh good lord almighty!!!

This was an amazing read and an even better listen! Jacob Morgan was the perfect Dex and did a fabulous job along with the always fantastic Ava Lucas. The heat and chemistry between Dex and Brooke is off the charts, and their story was fan-freaking-tastic! You get all of the MC action and drama, secrets revealed, the usual humor from the DAMC men and ladies, and let's not forget about the steam!!! Holy hell! Another wonderful fearful addition to this series.

Outstanding narration

Jacob Morgan once again delivers a stellar performance as Dex, and Ava Lucas is just as good in portraying Brooke. Brooke is a tough, in-control kind of woman, and Dex finds he enjoys being dominated by her. Even if he is a big bad biker. I liked that part of the story quite a bit.

However, I found the misogyny of the bikers to be pretty disgusting, and spent most of my time wondering why all these women put up with it. I have not listened to the other books in the series and likely won't: I bought this to listen to JM. MC stories are generally fairly repulsive to me for personal reasons. So, I have a bias here and you should be aware of that in making your decision.

The dramatic tension mostly comes from Brooke looking for her birth father, whom she believes was a member of the MC at the time of her conception. Come to find out, said father is one bad dude and he causes all sorts of trouble. Dex and the rest of the MC help her deal with all of this, albeit in a very 'you just sit there and look pretty while we do all the work' kind of way. Blech. Especially since Brooke doesn't take orders. Pretty much ever. And don't get me started on the whole 'old lady' thing.

Anyway, the performances are both a solid five stars, but the story is mediocre at best. Lots of sex, almost to the point of classifying this as erotica, but that part is pretty well done. If you like hot, if you like MC stories, if you can deal with sexist men, if you like dominant women, then this might be right up your alley. It was not my cuppa. Your mileage may vary.

Definitely worth the listen

Secrets revealed gave this a little different storyline. An Alpha female was a fun, exhilarating switch in the dynamic of the story especially with all the alpha males in Shadow valley and the DAMC.
Loved Jacob Morgan and Ava Lucas’s portrayal of Dex and Brooke.

Dirty, but not much else

I was less than impressed with the storyline in this book. The style was quite uneven and the story wasn't complete. There were many unanswered questions which I assume would be tackled in other books but the writing was not encouraging me to continue on with the series.

There were a few things I did enjoy in this book. 1) The sex scenes were great, especially since the female (Brooke) was the aggressor/dominant role and the male character (Dex) was more than willing to let her take the lead. That's not something I often see in the stories I read aside from one time experimentation. 2) Brooke was quite the badass and capable of taking care of herself. She didn't need Dex and he knew it, but they both wanted each other. 3) The narration by Jacob was well done, as usual, and even though some of the male voices done by Ava were a little off-putting, her performance as Brooke was good. 2/5 story and 3/5 narration.

Revelations made & A kick ass female

For the most part this book starts off quite boring. But then it has Lift-Off! The female lead is real kick ass even in the weapons Department which is really a plus. Then comes the revelations which you could kind of guess but we're surprised to hear the depths of betrayal. Overall decent read.

Another amazing story

This book is just as good as the rest.
You get a hot alpha male and a sassy, headstrong woman.
Great chemistry and lots of twists and turns.
Dex and Brooke are a match made in heaven, they compliment each other like no other.
Great story with great characters.
Ava and Jacob done an excellent job narrating, you got the emotions 100%, angry, sad and loving.. Could not have been better.

not my favourite of series

Really loving this series. This was probably my least favourite so far. Mainly because I didn't really warm to Brook. Don't know if it was her being dominant but just didn't really get her.
Still enjoyed the book because of the continuing story about the club. This one centred around Pearce finally being confronted with a few extra surprises.
If I'd purchased as a standalone I'd have been more disappointed but as part of the series it was still a 4 star.

Dex’s time...

The series keeps going strong with every book. The drama is intense. The boys are fearless and so sexy and the women strong. So much unravels in this book. Brooke is an integral part of unveiling secrets from the past that the Club still needs to find out to heal. Dex just blew my mind, catering to Brooke’s tastes. They are the perfect couple even when they are worlds apart. I didn’t know how Ms James would stitch this story up but I loved it. Never a dull moment with the DAMC!!

Ms Lucas and Mr Morgan give it another notch with their smooth and sexy voices. Love them.

Dex & Brooke

What a story! You would think after 7 books about an MC, Jeanne St James would run out of original ideas. But this story not only features Dex and many of the previous members of the club, but brings in Brooke giving us a completely new and different look at the MC . Brooke is the ultimate heroine. She comes into the story with a bang, and never stops. Looking for her biological father, Brooke not only stirs up a whole lot of dark history and betrayal, but she wins the heart of Dex. I love both featured characters. Brooke has a vulnerability despite her bravado. I don't know if she is incredibly brave or works off of emotion. Either way, she is someone you don't mess with and can't help but love and respect. Dex compliments her perfectly. He knows when to back down and when to take charge. I love him knowing how to keep her happy and that he is comfortable in his own skin knowing what he needs to do. Catching up with the rest of the MC is just a bonus! And Diesel....that man....you will understand when you listen! Another incredible book! Keep them coming Jeanne, we love them!!!

Every book in this series has the narrators so perfectly matched to the characters, it's like you knew them before you even start. Dex is a complex man, and Jacob Morgan gives him that sound.Morgan as Dex has that strong alpha sound he is so good at. And then at the same time, he can add an inflection or an emotion that makes Dex soften. I love that about him and think this pairing could not have been better. Ava Lucas, always incredible keeps the women of the MC fresh. Her portrayal of Brooke shows how strong she is, but you can hear the hurt and underlying betrayal under it all. It takes a special voice to be able to give all the emotion in a single word, and she nails each of these women every time. Again, the best team for this story, St James has a winner.
