BEST MOTORCYCLE CLUB BOOK EVER! READ THIS BOOK! SEXY AND FULL OF TWISTS. If you LOVE MC club novels, this one is for you. Grit for sure, not your normal HEA! This is a stand alone page turner. Grit made me laugh out loud so many times. The heroine is feisty fun. The hero had me thinking OMFG he just said WHAT???? If you want to hit every emotion, read this book. Best Margaret McHeyzer book ever.

Oh My Happy Day. I love finding a new author who makes me squeeeeee. I do love Grit. It is so well named...this is one good, gritty, down and dirty MC read.

Jaegar has had a tough life. He was been kicked out of his house, conquered the world of MMA and is now the President of the Hunters MC Club. He and his brothers are trying to keep their head above water and out of the sights of rival clubs, cartels, drug dealers, and the police. When he is due money that can't be paid, he'll

While Jaeger is extremely physically attracted to Nix the emotional for me is missing. He doesn't have conversations. He has sex. Now that talking someone into sex thing is hot maybe a couple times in a book but when it's almost all of the the encounters... it gets old. And then her hard to get game she's playing makes her a little unlikable. I wanted to shake her too and request that she become an adult woman. I know it wasn't meant to be a comedy.. But I was laughing at some of the hardcore cr

Jaegar is everything Phoenix is not. Rude, crude, domineering and a control freak, who just so happens to be the president of the MC!

Phoenix also known as Vix; and if you really wanna piss her off Red. Is the exactly opposite. Raised out on the country farm tending cattle, is thrusted into a shit storm. Two rivals MC's going head to head over unpaid debts her father owes.

DNF @ 5%

I don't usually DNF at such an early point in the book, but I knew off the bat me and this book wouldn't work for anyone's benefit. My issue was my inability to get into the story and my lack of reaction in the first 5%.

From homeless teen, to street fighter, to Hunters MC Prez, this book has it all and it's a standalone. This is not your average fluffy fairytale MC book. It's dark and gritty, with rape, human trafficing, drugs, killing, gun trade, and all around biker badassery. Wow, so that can be done, amazing.

Jaeger Dalton had horrible parents. They kicked him out on his own when he was just sixteen because he didn’t make the thousand dollars they require him to make when he sells their drugs. Trying his hardest to find somewhere to sleep and something to eat, he turns to fighting so that he can steal money to help keep him alive.
One night he is found by a man named Aaron, who introduces him to underground street fighting. He is also introduced into the world of MC’s. He soon becomes the President o

Grit is a story about Jaeger, who after being kicked out of his home at 16, survived for years fighting and eventually became the president of an MC. He's a brash, arrogant, and unapologetic manwhore. When a farmer defaults on his debts to the club, Jaeger is determined to take the land that now belongs to him. When he pulls up the the farmstead, he's expecting to see the farmer's son Dillion, but is instead greeted by the redhead he hasn't been able to forget after seeing her at one of h

Fist off I want to say that I freaking LOVED this book. Its at the top of my favorite books now. I often say that I would love to crawl into a book and help or hug a certain character but in this case I want to crawl in Margaret McHeyzer's brain. What goes on in that head of hers in phenomenal. The places that she has to go to in order to come up with some of the stuff she does is amazing to me. She really continues to wow me with each and every book.

I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Jaeger and Nix – what can I say, oil and water. He is an arrogant, egotistical motorcycle club president. She’s a farm girl - kind, shy and trying to keep her head above water, after he father’s gambling debts have taken everything she’s ever known. When they meet you know it’s going to hit the fan.

In his former life, as a fighter, Jaeger catches a glimpse of a beautiful redhead. He can’t get her out of his mind. Now, years later, he’s the pr
Jaeger Dalton is ready to call on a debt, as President of Hunters MC Club he knows how to handle a problem swiftly. He plans to take Freedom Run from the man who has defaulted, even if it means dealing with his son. Of course it is not often that Jaeger is caught off guard until he meets Phoenix Ward.

Jaeger is filthy, demanding, and calls to every seductive bone in your body. Phoenix is temperamental, head strong, and not going take any flack from Jaeger. Together they are combustible and quickl

Wow What an idiot Jaeger is? How can a man who is so hot and in control of his body be so clueless about love. This is a great book to read, it has a style all of it's own. How does love prevail and how does he get his girl, sorry woman? This was a page turner it kept me enthralled until the end, it made me laugh, gasp and cringe but also warmed my heart. Loved the character inserts from her other books
A job well done!

I enjoyed this story, MC club wise this was probably as gritty as I can take it .The Hero is unapologetically arrogant in his attitude, but not to the point of being an idiot . But best of all the heroine calls him on it all the time, and isn't a pushover.

Jaeger is a young man with a pretty hard past, he is now the president of a MC club, before that, he was a street fighter and even a drug dealer- He lives his life under his own terms, getting sex everywhere and being a strong Prez for his club. Five years ago as he was fighting he saw

Wow! This book was so much better than I thought it was going to be. I freaking love this book! I must be honest in the beginning, say the first couple of chapters...nope say the first couple pages I was not feeling Jaeger at all. I thought he was a rude, selfish self-centered jerk and honestly that didn't really changed with him. He was still all those things by the books end. But the difference was I come to find out th

Phoenix “Nix” Ward is a beautiful red headed farm girl. She is shy and has some family issues. However she knows what she wants and its not an arrogant biker. She tries and exclude him from her life yet he keeps coming back. This emotional roller-coaster type of man has met his match!

Grit is the first biker book I have read, so I started reading not knowing what to expect. It is the story of Jaeger and Nix. Jaeger is the Prez of the Hunters MC and an admitted a**hole. Nix is a firecracker of a woman who ends up in his protection on a trip to collect a debt. Nix is far from weak, and fights Jaeger every step of the way. I went through pretty much the entire spectrum of emotions while getting lost in the story. Following in the steps of her previous novels, Margaret McHeyzer ...more

Susan (susayq ~)
Wow. Just wow. This was dark and gritty. The title was perfect.

Phoenix, or Nix, as her friends call her, is one tough chick. My only complaint about her is that she is always getting mad at Jaeger. Yes, he's crude and arrogant, but his lack of filter really makes him kind of cute. He's always thinking of sex and has no problem letting Nix know. Rather than get mad, she should've laughed it off.

The best part of this? It's told mainly from Jaeger's point of view. I love reading romances written

Holy freakin' hell... I. Am. Stunned! I seriously thought this book was going to be your basic run-of-the-mill MC story... boy, was I wrong! So much to tell, so much to absorb, and so much angst and chaos that my cup runneth over with sex and swears and violence!

I loved this book!

Grit was the first MC book I’ve read and I’m addicted. I loved Jaeger. He comes from a broken home and had to fight (literally) for everything. He works his way up the fighting ranks because he has serious talent. Jaeger is all about his club. He started it with his VP and makes decisions based on what’s best for all.

He’s off to collect on a gambling debt when he runs into Phoenix.

Phoenix’s father owes Jaeger a lot of money (not just to Jaeger’s club) and he’s two weeks behind

I read and reviewed Monster Chef and then saw that the same author had another book on Net Galley…Grit. One-click request and the boom! Jaeger the dirty talking, sex-on-a-stick, bloody knuckled MC president was all mine.

Jaeger had a shite life…need say more. Phoenix had a hard but decent life. Her father and uncle were both useless and worthless gamblers, but she had the farm and loved the land. Then the whole thing came to a head resulting in being claimed by more than one bad, ba
