I had the pleasure of editing this book for the talented Mrs.Jones and it is is amazing. All of your questions get answered and there is NO cliffhanger. The story is full of twists and turns and ridiculously HOT sex. Luke Carmical, aka LLC, is a book boyfriend of epic proportions! Mrs. Jones has taken what was already an amazing talent for storytelling, and matured and grown. Her writing is refreshing and real. A must read!

I'm so glad this book was released. I was even more so when I saw their story would continue. I'm so excited. I wanted to experience their homecoming and Dallas & Maddie's reunion but maybe in the next book. I'm glad we found out the importance of Maddie. I sure didn't see that coming.
I love Luke. He's just so strong! I cried when he got his cut back. I cried when Dallas got hers! I wasn't expecting the Charlie twist. My emotions where right on with the characters in the book. I felt like I

Soo..... i was pretty excited for this one... because i liked Book 1... but ummmm... throughout the whole book i kept thinking this...

It was like everything that could possibly be thought up that could be thrown at Dallas was... could the girl get a damn break? Dead parents.. corrupt Mayor... being stalked for years... did Luke really love her or was she just a job?.. Kidnapped multiple times.. secret half-sister (that she instantly supported and wanted to be besties with) ki

Wasn't sure it was possible to be better than the first (which was a 5 star) but HOT DAMN... I need more.

And I will cut anyone who tries to take Luke from me. He. Is. Mine!
I hardly ever give such a low rating but if any book deserves the single star it is this one. The editing was so bad in this sequel to Saving Dallas that at one point the narrators pov for the start of a chapter was wrong and it took me about 10 minutes to realize that the person speaking was supposed to be Red and not Dallas. There were so many contradictions in this story that I felt constantly confused. For instance in at one point Dallas thinks to herself that no one in the club trusts her w ...more
5 Amazing Stars!


The story picks up where it left off in the first book… but this time, secrets are revealed. While Dallas is still dealing with the aftermath of Frankie’s assault… she is also dealing with all the lies…. and if it was even an option to return to the way she was before Luke and her new family, the Devil’s Renegades Motorcycle Club.

This book is HOT!!! Luke is definitely the man!!!! The things he’d do for the people he loves…. he is amazing!

Dallas’s character has grown big

4.5 stars

Another well written book by Kim Jones; the sequel to Saving Dallas. As in the 1st book, the story line kept on track. A lot of love, heartache, twist and suspense. I want from disliking characters in the first book to feeling for them in this book

I truly loved this story and give it another 4.5 stars

WOW! I mean I don’t even know if I have the words to express how much I loved this book! I read the most amazing, thrilling, and action packed book today. It was Making The Cut by Kim Jones. This is the second book in the Saving Dallas series and has NO CLIFFHANGER, but it does leave it open for there to be another book later. This is NOT a stand-alone book. You must read the first in order to understand what is happening and who’s who in this book. I actually highly recommend even if you have r ...more
While I liked how Dallas was more integrated in the club, I hated that it seemed like there were the same issues with Dallas and Luke as the first book. It was all, you need to accept my way or the highway ways from Luke and Dallas stomping her foot shouting out why, I should matter too. Things only got a bit better towards the end when everything was on the line and Dallas and Luke had to make some important choices, ones I think were the right ones to make.

Luke loved him in book one loved him in this book him and his hotness, "he was shirtless and seemed to have just showered. He stood up and smiled at me and my eyes drifted from his face down to where his gray sweats hung low on his waist." I mean I missed my boy, "Luke looked like he had not missed a workout. His abs rippled down his stomach all the way to his V. His arms looked bigger than I remembered them, and the tattoos that ran down them seemed to have grown also." Yea...I missed him. He's ...more

Awe I was really into the first book. This one had me mad. I lost Luke, didn't care for him anymore. I thought he was an asshole. He is such a jerk to Dallas. After not trusting her and then she runs off and gets assaulted and hung up to dry, do you think he could say he was sorry? Or he puts his hands on her, nope no real apology there either. I also started to feel like Dallas needed a good therapy session. The author kept alluding to the fact that Dallas had a past that she was not r
Oh LLC - you have just made your way to top of the list for my favorite biker boyfriend!!

Book 1 was sooo good, but left me with lots of unanswered questions, so I was very happy to finanlly get to read book 2. Dallas is still her sassy self, but is starting to get the hang of how things go in the MC world. Luke is still sexy, dominant, and hard but has a sweet/softer side (at times) when it comes to Dallas.

So much was happening all the time that my head was spinning, but in a good way. You were

As soon as I finished book 1, I had to go straight into book 2. Book 2 leaves it open with soooo many questions that I needed answered. This book answers a lot of those questions and also reveals so secrets I never saw coming! There were a couple of VERY shocking moments in this book that left my mouth hanging open. Be prepared for a crazy ride with this one.

In the first book, I wanted to smack both Dallas and Luke a few times and in this book it didn’t change at all. Both are set in their ways
4 stars. This second book was so much better then the first. This was a good, hot, steamy, sexy read with plenty of drama, twists and turns. Looks like the series could continue but I was not left with a cliffhanger.
This book was well with the wait and the author did a great job. I am in love with this series and u can't wait for the next book. Xxxxxx
Holy Crap I LOVED this book!!! I devoured this book within a few hours!! I just could not put my kindle down :)

This book picks up right where Saving Dallas left off. I love Dallas and Luke (I just cannot get enough) I'm glad that a lot of questions was answered in this book. I just couldn't figure out Maddie but wow...didn't see that one coming. Glad to see they are starting to work on their relationship, hopefully we will get more of them in the next book.

Luke Carmichael. LLC. Pres. Hotty. Whatever you want to call this man, he is just downright, stunning. He loves Dallas with every fiber of his being and it shows within every single page of this book.

Dallas is a stubborn, somewhat spoiled lady. It isn’t until she realizes that there is an ‘addition’ to herself that she finally seems to come off of her high horse and becomes less spoiled and starts truly thinking and acting in the best interest of those around her.

"Making the Cut" starts where "Saving Dallas" left off. It brings some of the same drama, but there are new characters and threats to this book. There are so many new developments in this book it's unreal. Dallas's life is changed dramatically in this book. She's dealing with the aftermath of the assault and the people who were hurt trying to help her. In this book the pettiness ensues, but we finally find out what the problems is causing it. All of the secrets become revealed and let me tell yo ...more

4 stars. I really thought I was going to give a little more stars, but...Here goes my review, I know it took me long, but it is time. I guess since I am have a bad day today, I just do not want to reflect it with my review. In the last book, Luke was saving Dallas. Okay Dallas found out about the secrets, the betrayal, the money, the ugliness of her father business strategy. But still Dallas is still bougie, stuck-up, conceited, Bitchy as a MOFO! Regardless of him saving her not once but twice a ...more

Saving Dallas: Making the cut, is the second book of the Saving Dallas series by Kim Jones, you need to read the first book Saving Dallas before reading this one.

Dallas and Luke are couple happy in their relationship, but the more that Dallas learns about being the girlfriend on a Pres of a motorcycle club the less she is sure she can handle. Sure she is used to wheeling and deal in the business world, but that's for property not for lives.

sure they both have secrets, there is LOT that Dallas d

If you enjoy biker romances, then you should consider reading the Saving Dallas series that centers around the erotic and intense love story of real estate mogul Dallas Knox and President of the Devil’s Renegades MC, Luke Carmical. These two individuals seem to live in completely different worlds and would most likely never have met until Dallas gets lonely after a recent break-up, goes out looking for company, and ends up as a damsel-in-distress until her knight clad in leather intervenes to re ...more
Didn't like this second book as much as the first, felt like Dallas lost quite a bit of herself in the process of getting closer to Luke & his motorcycle club family. Dallas knows the truth, that Luke has been following her for years & keeping her safe, that there were some dirty dealings with the Mayor & her life was in jeopardy. Dallas is also dealing with Frankie tying her up in the barn & assaulting her. She can't seem to let Luke go, even though she feels hurt & betrayed ...more

5 Stars for the Cover!

We have all been waiting for this one. Will Dallas embrace the MC and the family? Will she forgive Luke for his lies? All is answered, more lies are revealed, and a lifetime of secrets are uncovered. The MC has more drama than it can handle trying to find Frankie (and War), and keep everyone safe in the process. Dallas has to let go of the life she thought she wanted and except the MC family in front of her, or walk away alone. But walking away from Luke and the MC will not

I loved this book. There was a lot more adventure and less getting to know you in this book. Luke didn't tick me off as much and Dallas seemed to better understand her role in his life.

We get a lot more of the history between Dallas and Luke. There was more to the story than I thought. I had no idea what had been going on. I'm sure there were hints in the first book, but I missed them.

I had a lot more anxiety reading this book. Between the kidnapping, assault, and trying to figure out what Luke
This is the continuation of the previous book Saving Dallas. In the first bok I thought that Dallas was a snobby rich prissy bitch and got everything that was coming to her. However in this book I changed my opinion when she stated that she should not judge a book by its cover. I think that was the smartest thing that came out of her mouth. I loved Luke but his domineering shit just grated on my nerves. I liked the tough take no shit attitude that Dallas came out with in this book after the shit ...more

This was a very cute story with a great ending. There were a lot of editorial mistakes and I think Chapter 14 should have been named Red not Dallas. But a cute story all in all. I really loved the ending. I am a little nervous about book 3. I really think 1 and 2 were good enough for me but my OCD will not allow me to skip out knowing there is a 3rd.
Man I love Luke!!! Total devotion to the woman of his dreams and his soul mate. He and Dallas are so perfect. They both have the correct amount of attitude, however both know when to apologize after going to far. When you find out his secrets and the level of love he holds for Dallas...... I mean damn! The man is sex on legs. You'll get to learn what Maddie's deal is, and you'll love Logan. Brooklyn is great, along with Red. And all the guys are wonderful. What a great family. Can't wait for the ...more
If you want a hot MC book -- this series is for you! There was some intense scenes so intense I wasn't sure the outcome would be pretty. On to the next!!
