Publisher's Summary

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

She calls him “The Beast”.

Diesel, the MC’s Sergeant at Arms and enforcer, is tasked with not only keeping the club’s property and its members safe but also taking care of “business” when needed. His motto, “live free, die free”, means he sees most women as nags and clingers, and he wants none of that. The last thing he needs is to have one sitting on the back of his bike and trying to dictate his life.

Unlike the other DAMC women, Jewel wants to be an ol’ lady. Being born and raised within the club, her goal is to earn her place on back of a brother’s bike. But not just anyone’s. No, she had to pick the biggest, most pig-headed, and quick-tempered of the bunch. The one she nicknamed “The Beast”, because that’s how he acts both in and out of bed. She’s wanted Diesel for so long she’s not about to give up the fight to become his. She’s bound and determined to win this battle one way or another.

Diesel fights his desire for Jewel until a rival MC threatens what he realizes is his, and no one gets away with that. No one.

Note: This book can be enjoyed 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.

This is an amazing MC series and this book might just might be my favorite from the entire series! It has the perfect mix of dirty MC and sweet (well, as sweet as an MC book can be). Diesel has intrigued me in each book and I am so happy that he got his own!

The narration was great! Ava and Wen did an amazing job!

DIESEL....is....MINE!!

Ok, I am going to say it…Diesel is my favorite.

I can’t help it he is just soo yummy, he and Jewel just work. I loved that she was so, go with the flow but also that she stuck with her guns about somethings. She wants what she wants and is willing to fight for it but give Diesel what he needs. Only I think he figured out his needs were a lot more “needy” they even he would have ever thought. Haha

It really is great to see an Alpha male fall hard for their woman. It makes the story so interesting that you can’t put it down.

100% love that I was expecting one thing only for it to not happen; it was a relief to not be able to predict the way a story is going to go and just enjoy the ride.

Lets talk narrators, I have been a fan of Wen’s for a long time and when I heard him as Diesel I was sunk in all the good ways. He just has that voice that works for this gruff MC enforcer. Ava lordy bee; the woman can make each heroine unique and have their own voices. I loved that so much. Sometimes when the same narrator does a whole series the books all seem to blend but I can tell you that is not the case with this one. I am loving ’em and can’t wait for the next installment.

Nothing like Diesel to get your motor running!

I initially read this book first and had already fallen head over biker boots in love with Diesel, so I couldn’t wait for the audio version to come out! I was not disappointed! Wen Ross brought D’s character alive from the very first grunt! Ava Lucas like always perfectly portrayed the sassy Jewel! This story takes you on a journey of cat and mouse. With Diesel trying his best to keep Jewel’s “claws” out of him but eventually being caught and proving that even the most hardass of bikers can have a soft spot for their woman! I laughed and loved through this book. The chemistry between these characters is hot and undeniable. Another Jeanne St James winnner! I cannot wait for the rest of the DAMC to make their audio appearance!

All the emotions out there

The emotions that come through this performance are top notch. I didn’t think I could ever hear a voice as deep as what Diesel’s voice needed to be but Wen Ross does it well. And Ava Lucas? She’s got so many ranges for so many different characters, I forgot she was one person. The story is one I got caught up in. I hated turning it off to actually adult for the day. Loved everything about this

Taking on the Beast

The Beast is about to have his life turned upside down and its fantastic. I love Jewel she doesn't take any of Diesel crap. Jewel has loved him since she was a kid but now she is done playing with the Beast she is taking what belongs to her. Diesel will not go out like his brothers no he lives by one code Down & Dirty for life . The Beast get one tastes and he is hooked but he fights hard and just when he thinks he has won. Stuff hits the fan and he loses his cookies and it's funny to see the big bad Beast getting knocked down. I highly recommend you read this book along with ths whole series.

Like the Series, This Book Not So Much

I ploughed through the entire series in the last week and generally enjoyed all of them, especially Bella and Axle's book. The narration in all the books is excellent. I struggled with Diesel. It started out good - Jewel knows what she wants and she goes after it unapologetically. I like that she knows how to beat Diesel at his own game.

But then I just found myself losing interest as the sex and the arguing went on and on without any kind of plot development. It just got annoying, actually. Jewel is supposed to be a savvy badass chick who grew up in a biker club yet she gets caught out not once but TWICE blindly tagging along to a river biker gang party with a woman she knows has "questionable taste in men." Both instances result in her nearly being raped. Really? Both times she has to rely on Diesel to get her out of the mess she stupidly walked into. That just made me roll my eyes. She ain't no badass bitch.

The part that this book really lost me was when Jewel tells Diesel exactly how she is feeling and though it seems he feels the same way, he tells her - unequivocally - that all he wants is sex with her. He straight up tells her "I won't be your old man or husband. I won't commit to you. I won't have kids with you." And like a proper doormat she just accepts it "because I love him". That is bullshit and the total opposite of the "badass biker chick" she was supposed to be. From there, I just lost all interest. At least the women in the series had some backbone and didn't accept scraps that their men were grudgingly willing to give them.

Worth the wait for Diesel!

Each time I heard Diesel in the previous books, I was intrigued by his one word answers and his all around gruffness. Now my obsession is satisfied! There is something to be said about a man of few words, and he uses very few! Diesel is a man who likes women, but has no interest in settling down. Always drawn to Jewel, he does his best to watch over her without getting involved. Jewel has other plans though, she has her sights set on Diesel and becoming his ol' lady. Jeanne St James gives these two a journey full of passion, danger and intrigue. What I love is the spunky personality that Jewel has mixed with the alpha, grunting Diesel. I think they compliment each other so well with their personality differences and their bond is evident regardless of the conversations. They have unbridled passion and it's hot! Add in characters from the previous books, St James has created a community feel, like we are part of the MC. I love this series and can't wait for more!

The narration for this is incredible. Ava Lucas always brings her best to the table, and I can feel Jewel through this narration. She is spunky, yet you can feel her uncertainty when it comes to Diesel. I can feel her love, and her pain as she makes decisions about protecting her heart. When a narration does this, you know you have been given a special glimpse of the performer. Wen Ross, well, I cannot say enough good things about him. His performances are always wonderful, but as this alpha, man of few words, Wen pulls you in and sets you on fire. He has produced a feeling of protectiveness over Jewel that extends to the listener, feeling all his emotions(and yes, Diesel is tough, but he has feelings!). It's a great collaboration of voices.

Hell, now that was a ride!

Brilliant book. Great action throughout, such strong characters that you will fall in love with. Jeanne has such a natural talent with the words she writes. Narration by both Ava and Wen stunning, just when I thought Wen’s voice couldn’t go any lower I’m proved wrong!!

Dirty Diesel

Diesel is the enforcer and he has a soft spot for Jewel. He protects the club and all its members but he spends more time screwing women in the restroom and rescuing Jewel. She is determined to get this man and refuse to let him take the easy way out. This book is hot with a dominant alpha Male. Good Narration.

I WANT DIESEL TO BE ALL MINE !!!!

Wow. Jeanne St. James did an awesome job. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the narration. Wen Ross and Ava Lucas brought so much more to this story. Following along as Diesel and Jewel get through their story was just very entertaining and highly enjoyable. Am looking forward to more.

Taming the beast???

I could not wait for this one to be released it just had everything Hot biker sassy female and super hot story, I even had tears in my eyes at one point. I found Diesel so interesting he was so hard no soft edge but then Jewel tried to get inside the beasts heart. They were great together and every time he said "woman" i smiled so hard. Jewel definitely had D's number and knew how to play him she was a cool lady. Diesel does not want an ol lady he just wants to enjoy being free (or does he???) This was yet another fantastic story in the Dirty Angels MC series Jeanne St.James just knows what we want to read/listen to she is amazing. I want to consume all her audio books and can't wait till the whole series is out in audio so i can listen to them one after the other. Ava Lucas as Jewel was heart-stoppingly good she tells the story so well and draws me into the feelings of the characters so well love her and could listen to her all day. Wen Ross as Diesel was spot on his voice is just so hot and deep and gravely and sexy and OMG perfect so together they were audio gold. If you are into a great MC series and love hot alpha men and strong sassy women then this is one for you. I can't wait for more I am greedy for more.x

Amazing narrators who captured the emotion of the story and brought the characters to vivid life!

One of my favorites DAMC story

I already liked Jewel and Diesel's story after I read it for the first time. This narration though gave the story new heights.

Diesel is - and always will be - a stubborn, grumpy a$$ biker. As club enforcer he must be level headed and though, even scary to put the fear of God in the club's enemies. Nothing can faze him. There's no bringing him down.
Until Jewel, that is. He fights his attraction and feelings but it turns out to be a futile effort.
He was falling, deep and hard for Jewel, and boy, was it entertaining to experience. He was adorable - even though he remained a beast. Jewel was his perfect match, a bada$$ biker chick, born and raised in DAMC. After a lot of longing she finally wormed herself under D's tough armor.

Ava Lucas and Wen Ross did an amazing narration here. They both got right in and made the characters alive. I loved how both of them acted out this story. Biker slang, a lot of secondary characters, different pitches, pacing, emotions - everything was spot on.
