Publisher's Summary

Love is never painless.

Especially when you love dangerous men.  

My heart wants the most dangerous one of all - the golden man with the beautiful smile. Gunner strikes enemies as ruthlessly as his falcon, but when it comes to us, he keeps me tortured and begging for a swift end. 

He crushed me once, then kissed hope back into me. His indecision will be the slow, painful death of me. I’m done waiting. I’ll make him put me out of my misery or pull the trigger myself. 

If dealing with him wasn’t enough pain, I’m also getting my Steel Demons tattoo from Shadow. 

The scarred, quiet man has been coming around to me slowly. My new cat companion is obsessed with him. If my time with the Steel Demons has taught me anything, it’s to trust the instincts of our animal guardians. 

They’re intelligent. Sometimes, they even talk to us. 

I don’t expect my first tattoo to be painless. But can I heal my artist from the pain he keeps locked inside? 

Sons of Anarchy meets The Handmaid's Tale in this dystopian reverse-harem adventure! Painless is the fourth book in the Steel Demons MC saga. This series is full of steam and dangerous men who take what they want. Proceed with caution if easily offended.

An Emotional Roller Coaster Ride

I have to say that Shadow is my favorite. He has opened up so much. Not only within himself, but with others too. There is a lot going on for the Steel Demons in this book. I can’t wait to see where it all leads to.

I can't get enough of this series!

I devoured this audiobook waaaay too quickly!! I might have to do a relisten because I already miss the characters and will be checking (hopefully daily haha) for book 5 on audio ❤️ I am trying to have self control and not read the books first because the narrators really have brought these characters to life for me and I can't imagine not learning what happens next without their voices doing it. Amazon job yet again, Keira and Troy. Easily 5 stars for each of these performances. I loved the inflections, the emotions were so on point and my heart was aching for some scenes (especially regarding Shadow!!).

So a lot of things happen in Painless that helps develop the relationships more among Mariposa and her men (and within the Steel Demons family) and the plot gets heated with some horrible events and more battles the Steel Demons have to overcome. I was devastated with one of the developments, Crystal did a fabulous job with it and made me fall more in love with this world. We get more answers about the odd "animals" of the Steel Demons MC. We get to see Reaper and Jandro get close to Mari and Gunner getting 100% onboard. I love the individual dates/time Mari spends with the guys and the 🔥🔥🔥 scenes together too! Shadow I think really stole the show for me in this one and I can't wait to see him be added to the harem (I am hoping, I haven't read any of the other books to know this for sure haha).

The way Crystal sets up the story at the end of the book will make for an interesting next step in the battle against the baddies and the Steel Demons MC as a whole. I cannot wait for book 5 on audio (didnt I already say that haha) and another amazing job Crystal. Loved every second of this book (even is I cried my eyes out and my heart had to be remade 😂).

Another amazing installment.

Lots of happy and relationship growth. But also a few more answers to the burning questions about the Gods and attacks. So much plot development. I can’t wait to grab the next one.

Falling in Love With Characters Time after Time!!!

I've sat through 5 books in 2 days what a rush. The characters are rich and engaging. The connection to them is instantaneous and the storylines are fast and furious. Epic books. A must listen in the genre which I must admit I'm new to.
The narration is flawless. She takes us on an exciting journey and he's sexy and masterful both weaving an amazing mind map of imagery movie making of the mind. So great I just couldn't put them down. So so so Good if I could give 10 ☆'s I would.
