Publisher's Summary

From USA Today and Amazon Top 15 best-selling author Bella Jewel.

In darkness we find danger. In danger I find Beau.

Ash is a prison guard. She's tough, she's strong, and she never backs away from a fight. She takes her job seriously, she takes her training seriously, and everything in her life goes as planned...until the day he is brought into the prison.

She'll never forget meeting Beau "Krypt" Dawson for the first time. He's a member of the Jokers' Wrath Motorcycle Club, and it is said he killed an innocent family in the middle of a cafe, in cold blood.

Deranged. Crazy. Psychotic. All those words describe the infamous Krypt, but Ash suspects there's far more to the quiet man than meets the eye. Secrets are being hidden by the club; information is being kept under wraps. Krypt is silent for a reason.

.

Ash is desperate to know that reason.

Continually fighting, Krypt is transferred to a high-security prison. Ash is in charge. She's always prepared, always alert. Not even her skills will stop the club from ambushing them and taking back Krypt. But Ash ends up right in the middle of it.

They take her, too.

Now she's stuck with a motorcycle club that's determined not to let her go. She's much too of a risk. Until the situation can be sorted, they send her and Krypt into the mountains together...alone.

The dark, sexy, handsome biker will crawl into her soul and embed himself there, changing her life forever.

An epic, dangerous love will be built on the foundations of darkness.

This audiobook contains adult themes.

WHEN A BAD BOY MEETS A GOOD GIRL....IT'S EXPLOSIVE

Beau (aka Krypt) is VP of the Joker's Wrath MC and feisty Prison Guard Ash first meets him when the hauntingly handsome, tattooed, foul-mouthed badass with attitude is thrown in prison for murder. It's not a hearts and flowers meeting..... he swears, stares, rants and rages but despite this Ash does her job however she start noticing things between some of the other Guards and Beau just aren't right like evil taunting glares, beatings and finally an unnecessary transfer to another prison. She's been asked to go with him, along with two other Guards...... and that's when the sh*t will hit the fan because she'll be kidnapped, mocked, handcuffed, shot, will face one agonizing dilemma after another, witness the activities of Club life and it's Whores, make a friend, become intimately acquainted with a hot barbell piercing, indulge in a ménage fantasy, have some earth shattering mind blowing sex, catch some criminals and slowly realise she's met the love of her life.

This is an action-packed gritty hard hitting listen where the MC world isn't 'prettied up' with sweet words but despite it all she finds herself drawn more and more to Krypt and, as for the mega Alpha Krypt, well he's finally found an Alpha female that kicks ass, grabs balls, mouths back and likes rough sex...... definitely a worthy Old Lady for him but will Ash see it like that?

The errr 'romance' (rather grabbing, lunging, swearing, snappy dialogue and claiming) is entwined with a plot of corruption and murder involving a rival MC Club and there's suspense, bloodshed, more kidnappings, a daring edge of your seat rescue and a bitter Biker War. Bella Jewel paints the scenes well and includes some very colorful characters as well as hot sex, a bit of M/F/M action and plenty of lust driven passion. Told mainly from Ash's POV but there's the occasional Chapters from other character's too and the narration is great.

Worth a credit? I love it all.... the sexy good parts, the twisted bad parts and the downright ugly parts too..... so YEAH a creditworthy Biker story where sh*t goes down, sh*t gets real and they weren't happy about it. The last Chapter sets the scene up nicely for book 2 and I can't wait.

Terrible

I have no idea how this book had such high ratings. If I had to hear the word “erotic” said by the Ash one more time I thought I’d scream! Seriously break out a thesaurus! My erotic thoughts, it was so erotic, I’d never done something so erotic etc etc etc... 🙄 And the “strong heroine of the book” Ash was all over the place. She’s a tough prison guard persona wanting to fight motorcycle club member and prez one minute and the next she is this weak woman needing to be f***ed after feeling insecure to a club “whore”. Beau, the male lead, was just ok. Every sexy scene was ruined by him calling here Babe or chick. So cheesy. I just didn’t buy any of it. No thanks on the rest of the series.

Didn’t like it

I didn’t like the story and the POV. This story was told mostly from the heroine POV and very little from the hero. Gave up

steamy book with lots of action

I posted on my page the other day that I wanted a sexy, fast paced audio. I had some house cleaning to do, and a nice meal to make, so I wanted the perfect sexy story to listen to.

I follow a fellow audio reviewer and that lead me to this book. It's good, and I mean real good.

Ash is a prison guard. She is spunky, fierce, can kick biker butt and very open sexually. She had me laughing at her clumsiness and squirming at her brazenness. I liked her and am adding her to my Kick Butt girl list.

Crypt is a damn good dirty talker and I thoroughly enjoyed his mouth and all the banter between Ash and him.

The tiny thing holding me back from a full 5 stars is I wanted to know why Ash was the way she was. She had panic attacks so it felt like there had to be a reason. All Crypt wanted was to have her let him in, and I feel like that was the only thing the listener was left wanting too. Let me in Ash!!

The SEX!!


Oh, how hot it is.

Narration is spot on perfection. Narration can make or break an audio and Stella Bloom is so amazing. Great job.

BOOOO none of the other books are on audio for this series yet. Happy one clicky finger for the next book.

dnf

was too much. Too cheesy, Too cliche, Too predictable. I'm going to try book 3 bc I've been told that's the best of the series. so far, I'm not a fan of this author. I hope Anguish changes my mind.

Intriguing

An intriguing, suspenseful, and thrilling ride to go on with Krypt and Ash. I enjoyed every single invigorating moment of this book. Narration was fantastic

Female guards an MC biker guy

She changed everything he ever believed in with one simple smile. She’s a woman working in a world that was heavily dominated by men. He’s the first biker she’s had to guard. Her job was to make it comfortable for her inmates while being a good role model despite them being criminals. She was tough when she needed to control a prisoner, but most of the time she spoke to them in a calm respectful tone. Narrators: Stella Bloom was the voice of Ash. She gave an excellent performance. Charles Lawrence was the voice of Tristan, Krypt, and Maddox. He only performed three chapters, so I didn’t get the full experience. Chapter ten Tristan’s character. Chapter eighteen Krypt. Final chapter Maddox. Overall: Why is that some stories always have someone from the past lingering around who holds someone from their present? They can’t move forward until they put the past to rest. I’m not particularly a fan of these motorcycle club stories. While I appreciate that Bella left out all the club rules by focusing on two girls, I still wasn’t overly excited. The club life just isn’t for me between the fighting and the sex. I’m left feeling like I should’ve read a story with substance. I wasn’t invested in these characters. The secrets weren’t enough to hold my interest. Biker guys just aren’t appealing to me. The Prince Albert piercing spiked an interest, but I was disappointed at how brief that scene was. I thought for sure something kinkier could’ve taken place. The threesome scene was hot and very redeeming. Although, the young club girl drama was a drag. Im not too inclined to read any more books from this series.

Great find!

I’m so glad I found this book! Found it by searching for Stella Bloom after I heard her on another book. The male only narrated about 2 or 3 short chapters. This was a really good story, erotic and not overly angsty how some books overdo plot twists. I’ve already started on the next one. So glad to have the Audible Escape package 😀

Usual Bella Jewel brilliance

I have listened to the 3rd book in the series not realising it was part of a series, this did not detract as the stories were different and well told.
Hot as ever and really engaging characters. Love Cript and Ashes story, great feisty female lead and physically combative. Really enjoyed her fight scenes as the character thrived on a competitive play fighting and I could relate :-)
Excellent narration.

Hot Dirty Badass biker story

Bella Jewel has done it again, Hot Dirty Badass biker story that makes your toes curl. Featuring a woman that tough and strong and knows what she wants. No winey skinny bitches here. Narration is brilliant. If you like biker stories this one shouldn't disappoint. I spent my free credit on it and it was so well worth it. Cheers
