Did not finish! I finally gave up at 76%

I usually refrain from rating books I don't finish, BUT this one upset me to such a degree I had to respond and give it one star! The first half of the book was okay. I was captivated and intrigued. The second half, however, jumped shark. It fell apart and felt like an entirely different story. It became rushed, discombobulated, and sloppy. Not to mention, the hero went from someone I liked to someone I despised. (view spoiler)
3.99 almost a solid 4 stars
"Love I feel for you, babe? It’s rock solid. Ain’t nothing gonna shake it.”

Outlaw is the story of Angel and Cole, to understand them now we have to go back to the past and see for ourselves how those nine days forever changed who they are deep inside. The past and the present both different in not only time but tone and depth, the people we meet in the beginning are not the same ones we end with, so go in with an open mind and an open heart because it is one bumpy

Let's cut to the chase ~ overall, I enjoyed the story. I liked both Cole and Angel. But were there problems, definitely...I'll get to those later.

Cole comes across Angel while he's at an allied motorcycle club and she's a victim at the hands of one of those members. That was a pivotal moment for Cole and he couldn't stand by and do nothing.

It was a bit disconcerting how quickly Angel got over the incident and wanted to be with Cole...but she's a cop's daughter and I could imagine that

So by now we have all:
seen Sons of Anarchy
read Motorcycle Man
read Own the Wind
read Undeniable
and know what to expect when it comes to books about Bikers.

Lots of heavy/hard sex
Lots of drinking
Old ladies
Biker sluts/hanger ons
Blood shed
Rival clubs
Trouble with the law.

This book doesn't disappoint!

When Cole first see's Angel, she is handcuffed and being dragged across a fellow clubs compound.

A bit of a bumpy ride...

I have become obsessed with biker books. Has this reader ever even ridden on a motorcycle? Nope. Are there bikers hanging around in my area? Nope. But boy do I love a hot biker! I can rattle off several biker books which I absolutely loved. Check my read list if you’re interested to see which were my favorite rides.

Some parts of this story were bumpy, like the author switching lanes fifty percent through the book. Also, there were a couple of potholes in the road for me

I gave this book three stars because the plot was great. The characters were at times also great but I just had way too many issues.

Please be warned this isn't a review it's me ranting and there are a lot of spoilers!

Well I am so glad i decided to read this book. It had mixed reviews so I almost didn't read it. Boy am I happy I did. I am a sucker for a man in a biker club. Those types of books just grab hold of me and don't let go. This book was no different. It was such an excellent read. I loved it. The story line was awesome and the characters were very likable. I am glad I decided to read it. A must read.

So many things wrong.

And the hotness doesn't stop there!! This book has it all!! Hook line and sinker this book just grabs you but leaves you wanting more!!

Please write another bad-ass biker book!!

I bought this book way back in 2013 for $3.99 (yup I looked it up on and never read it. Now that I've read Jameson and loved it, I decided to FINALLY give this a try. I'm not sure why I didn't want to read it. Maybe because I knew our heroine was raped in the beginning, but reading the book it wasn't detailed since it happened before the book started. I am kicking myself for not reading this book years ago.

From the get-go it was really action-packed. There was so much happening that

I was going to give this book 3.5 stars when I was at the halfway mark, but then I got to the end and the epilogue.
That's where it changed to 4 stars.
Outlaw is an entertaining read but it definitely lacks the darkness and grit that Undeniable had.
It definitely was not as steamy as Reapers Property.
It felt like more of a "hearts & flowers" version of a biker gang story.
But I did love Cole!! He reminded me of Jax from SOA, down to the way he's physically described.

Decent read but frustrating

Good read, but darn did the characters just bug the heck out of me. Cole did complete flip flops and drove me insane. I care about you...wait no it's just I really care about it meant nothing. Then Angel she would be so strong no then just disintegrate before your eyes. She put up with a great deal of crap from Cole and kept forgiving.

Ok then I had issues with Mack. He lied and no one called him on it and he seemed to survive scot free. Even Natalie

The book was ok overall but didn't reach my expectations.I'm gonna explain what I didn't liked. Let the bitching begin .

Sorry, I just can'

This might be a spoiler, but I wish I would have known, because I might not have spent the money to buy this book. It started out pretty good. I cared a little about the characters. Cole wasn't really a strong alpha character, but I liked him alright. He had some issues, but he was a good guy down deep. But then......there was cheating. He was a cheater, and I HATE that. Absolutely. Hate. It. I almost didn't finish the book, but I sat it down a couple of days, then forced my self to finish it. G ...more

Overall, I loved this story! Crushed on Cole even though he did some pretty awful things: bad biker club stuff, murder, smoked like a fiend, plus other stuff. What he did 'good' was all Angel. I loved his "Angel" voice - how he treated her (for the most part) he knew she was worth treating well. Yes, he messed up, but for a bad biker dude he sure had a soft spot for her. I liked that even though Angel was sweet, she was no door mat. She was a fighter - for herself and for her family. Ooh-o ...more

The first book in Nicole James' The Outlaw series. Cole Austin is visiting another Motorcycle Club when one of their members drags a woman out. He is angry about how the woman is treated and finds a way to get the woman from the man. Angel was kidnapped and sold after attending a party. She fights with Cole at first until she realizes he isn't going to hurt her.

I have mixed feelings on this one. The story itself is told in a easy manner that I liked. What I had problems with was that I never fel

This was a wallbanger! Cole the Zero was a cheating, cowardly scumbag. His mc prez lied and separated the H/h and no one ever berated him except the aunt? It wasn't even a good scolding! Mack the mc prez ruined their lives!
The Zero married someone else and didn't tell the heroine when they met up again! This book raised my blood pressure!

First off, I think the cover for outlaw is fabulous! After Reaper's Property, my friend and have been looking for other books about the MC lifestyle. While Cole is VP of the Outlaws, he is hardly a bad ass biker, but I still loved the character.

Cole is a biker with a conscience, he sees Angel in trouble at another club's party and feels the need to help her. Poor Angel is just in the wrong place at the wrong time, her situation is bad and she is definitely saved from worse by Cole.
