Welcome to Northern Nevada. The scenery is idyllic, the people are friendly and the outlaws rule the Tri-City area between Reno, Carson City, and Lake Tahoe with an iron fist. The path to Hell is paved with good intentions, and so are the highways where Lucifer's Saints, Demon's Bastards and White Knights call the sho

I'm saddened to say that I just could not bring myself to finish this book. The characters rubbed me the wrong way and I felt as if something were missing.

I'm a complete MC fangirl so I was super elated when I had found out that there was going to be a new series taking place BUT... this just did not do it for me.

I'm sorry guys!! *ducks head and runs for the hills*

I have to be honest and say that I did have a hard time originally getting into this book. There were so many names and so much information I had to understand before I could get into the meat of the story.

I was very disappointed in this book. I read something a little similar, not MC based but two people on opposite sides of the law and that was a good book. This one...sigh...not good. It had so much potential to be good!! Sadly...the writing style was its downfall. it is...too much information! Literally, information overload!! I like how the author had all this background info on the characters but it should have been woven in smoothly, not just dumped on the reader and expect us to r ...more

I first read this book when it was released in 2013. I came back to read the second edited version and am so glad that I did. I thoroughly enjoyed the story line and the characters in this book. Yes, there are quite a few characters to keep track of but IMO there was clarity in their connection. The positive in having so many characters is that I look forward to reading other books in this series for each of the characters. I became invested in the major characters and was drawn totally into the ...more

I love biker books, but a number of things in this story didn't work for me. The first hook-up after being apart for so many years, had me cringing. Their was a lot of cheating and the connection between a number of the characters 'bordered on being incestuous' (that part is quoted from the story) and not my interpretation.

I got why some of the cheating happened early in the story, but not further on.

There was a lot of mention of underage sex, but it never appeared to be a crime, so I
Very poorly written with many grammatical, punctuation and malapropism errors. Seriously, the expression is hem and haw, not hee and haw. . . that was a red neck comedy show from the 70s.

Besides the issues with grammar, I knew it was going to be a bumpy ride when the family relationships detailed in the early chapters began to run together like biblical genealogy. There's almost nothing appealing about any of the characters. The male lead, who should be an alpha biker, suffers from low self este
I got this book in a deal that included several biker books for a low price. I had already read half of the books in this compliation book "a ride or die kind of love"... and some of those books (hell's knights, undeniable, craving constellations) were totally awesome, so I bought this hoping the books I had not yet read, would be good. ummm, this one was terrible.

I do not even know how to sugarcoat it and say something nice. I feel bad giving it a bad review, but wow, it was almost a DNF for me
I got to 35% and wasn't invested in book enough to finish it. I don't like to not finish books especially as it was an arc. Im Sure others will enjoy this book plenty but there were too many mcs and characters seemed introduced really fast. Maybe it was just too much post Christmas.

If you read and really enjoy comeback and tell me to give it another go.

Not as good as the 5 star reviews made me expect...

I agree with other reviews that there are so many names and connections between three MC's, one mafia family, one cartel family, and all the investors links between them now and before, not to mention all the illegitimate kids being had by all ages! I felt like I needed a Family Tree app to keep track of who belonged to who. Once the author got past all the jumbled world building in 3 chapters or less, the story focused on Cillian C

There are some mixed reviews out there for this book and I don't feel I'm in either camp. It's definitely didn't give me that 'wow' factor, but I read it over two days, so that indicates to me that I connected with the characters. At this stage, I'm not ready to rate this book, not because I don't like it but I think I need to read it again before the next book comes out.

I read the synopsis and it had me interested, that continued with the sample excerpt but then not long after that there was s

DNF after chapter 2.

The sheer amount of information given to us within chapter 1 was absolutely mind boggling. Why are you introducing characters or information as almost a summary of what we are going to read. It was like the author drafted a family tree and outline for the story and used it as an introductory chapter similar to what you might see in a term paper's introduction paragraph. This is a fictional book, I do not need to have all of this information before the story even begins. I am

I read this book as part of the A Ride or Die Kind of Love collection.

I liked the idea of this story I just thought it could have been written better, there were quite a few grammar/spelling mistakes so some parts of the story didn't make sense and there were a lot of characters. A lot of names were thrown at you during this book and I found it hard to keep up with who was who and from which family/MC they belonged so I never felt attached to any of them.

The storyline was readable it just

Im surprised I actually finished this book. I'm glad I wasn't convinced to out right buy it. The only thing I liked about this book is the concept of the plot, NOTHING ELSE. It was horribly toooo confusing. If you like getting sidetracked right when you're thinking you understand what's going on, next 10million different (non main character) backstories start, & then back to the main characters again. Then this is the book for you, DEFINITELY NOT ME! WAY to many back stories placed continual ...more

Holy Mother Of God... Lord have mercy... Baby sweet Jesus this book is AMAZZZZZING!!!!!

When I started I was unsure, there is a lot of people that gets introduced and the MC club and the area and the rivalry in the tri-state area. but I kept reading and the more I did the more hooked I become.
After about chapter 5 there was nooo bloody way I was putting this bad boy down I finished in a matter of hours.

I have read just about everything our author has written under her pen name of Selene Chardou, and loved all of them. Having said that, this is my first MC novel... so I was a motorcycle club virgin when I started this book.

Sex, drugs... and motorcycles? Absolutely, with some killings and a lot of jumping around beds and having sex with other bikers wives, girlfriends, and getting into a lot of trouble. Almost incestuous! Think Sons of Anarchy with musical beds... in the end, all the clubs have

Deadly Seduction is book one in the Rough Riders Series.
In Northern Nevada, there are three motorcycle clubs that rule the city. Cillian is part of one of these clubs, the Lucifer's Saints. He's the VP and stands to inherit the club from his father. He's survived this far and will have to fight to continue to do so when he's charged with murdering a Federal agent. Gisela is a law attorney who represents mostly crim
Our 3 Star Review

Cillian is the VP for his motorcycle gang. His father runs it and he does the dirty work, but it's wearing him thin. Cillian is almost 30 married to a woman who cheats on him and doesn't really even take care of their kids. He only got together with her and married her because his parents wouldn't allow him to be with the girl he loved when he was 16, she got pregnant and was part of a "rival" gang. Now 13 years down the line he's miserable and his father is about to make him do
For the Love of Books
“Deadly Seduction” by Selene Chardou is a love story, but not your typical love story. This one is all about the inner workings of hardcore motorcycle clubs in the Northern Nevada area…specifically the MC known as “Lucifer’s Saints” and the struggle of Cillian and Gisela in their fight to reclaim lost love.
I LOVED the concept of this story…and holy HOTNESS Cillian, pronounced Kill-e-an, even has an Irish brogue, so ya know I’m just picturing Mr. Hotness Colin Farrell…as badass biker man Cillian
I met the author and picked up this book in paperback at a book signing and was excited to read a new MC book. It was definitely a bit different but I totally agree with another reviewer who wrote:
"Too many names, too many characters, and way too much information given in just a few pages." It made me dizzy and confused and I hate it when I have to keep going back to remind myself who someone is in a story.

I gave this book 5 stars.
This is book #1 in The Rough Riders Series.

First let me say this. This is a book about a Biker Club, it is not pretty, it is not perfect. I have seen several reviews that say that could not get into the book. Or that there was too much information given. I honestly did have a hard time at first getting into it, because of all the information about the club etc.. BUT I do feel the information should have been given. I
Selene Chardou did a great job with this book, i was surprised that it was indeed a standalone even though it is part of a bigger series. I recommend reading them all because they are just that good. The characters have a real life, no mushy mumu BS that makes you feel like "this could never happen" its real. Deep inside we all want to be that MC VP's old lady don't we.
Cillian was a bad boy with a problem, he doesn't WANT to be a killer but that's what he grew up in, its all he knows. That and

I Received An ARC Of This Book In Exchange For My Honest Review!

This is the first MC (Motorcycle Club) book I've ever read. When I first started this book I was unsure of what to expect. I had a vision in my mind of what guys in a MC would look like and honestly that was all based on movies I watched when I was younger. The men in this book did not fit the image I had in my head and all I can say about that is YUMMY!

But it just didn't do it for me. The storyline was a great idea and something unique, that I haven't read before. Cillian kind of annoyed me, as well as Gisela. It was kind of confusing with all the explanations of characters and how they were related and everything with all the other Motorcycle Clubs. I did lik ...more
The story itself was not bad. In fact, after a couple of chapters, It gets interested. At the beginning, it was confusing. Too many names, too many characters, and way too much information given in just a few pages. It was confusing. I had to go back and forth re=reading and trying to understand what was going on.

Moreover, I felt the Author intended to elaborate as much as possible, but to me, it was not necessary, which made the story dragged at times. Cillian and Gisela really made a beautifu
3.5 - 4 Stars

I love and adore MC books. After reading the synopsis for this book I was very excited to read it. The characters sounded great and the plot was interesting and caught my attention.

The book starts off introducing Cillian Cox - VP of Lucifers Saints MC in Northern Nevada. He loves his brothers whether they be of blood or not and would do anything for them. Though growing up within the MC, with the years of murder, drugs and other crimes is starting to take it's toll.

I loved the blurb for this book, the VP of a Nevada MC and a gangster’s daughter? Oh yeah this was so right on my radar.

Gisela is a high flying lawyer but her clientele is the local gangsters and MCs. As the daughter of a gangster who is infiltrated with the Nevada MCs, she knows what is expected of her. Howeve
