Rough Justice is the first book in Sarah Castille new series, Sinner's Tribe Motorcycle Club, and I believe that fans of tamer fictional versions of this violent subculture would enjoy reading it.

What can you expect? Instant love, bad boys with strong sense of what is right and what is wrong, a lot of steamy scenes, usual rivalry between clubs and few hours in the company of fictional men who are, as someone put it cleverly, "God's apology for men in real life".

The first book in the Sinners Tribe MC series, Jagger and the Sinners have just been attacked by members of a rival gang, the Black Jacks. They manage to stop one of the attackers, and find out that it’s not just a Black Jack, but Arianne, aka Vexy, daughter of the president of the Black Jacks. Then, drama drama drama, with a heaping helping of romance.

4 "Say yes, lips." Stars

It's no secret I'm a sucker for a good MC romance. There's something innately perfect to me about a rough biker falling for a challenging woman in which danger, sex, and chaos thereafter ensue. Sarah Castille gives us an engaging story of lust, passion, betrayal, and danger full of intrigue and surprise wrapped up in tightly written prose.

I normally don't like MC books. It's not that I have anything against bikers, I just haven't found a MC book that I have been able to connect with until I read this one. I don't know what made me read this book but I'm so glad that I did. I loved this story. I think what made this a 5 star book for me was Jagger. HE IS HOT! He's alpha but he also has this really sweet side and I adored him. Also, I loved Arianne. She's so strong. The writing of this book was so good, I couldn't stop reading once ...more
3.5 RATING- I'm sure others will like this more. Overall, an okay read. At times the story felt like it tried too hard and the back and forth between the main characters seemed repetitive. I'm not sure that I would read the next book. I'm getting pickier and pickier about my biker reads. I either want a quality story (like Sheehan or Fanetti) or I want enjoyable, guilty pleasure (vintage Kristen Ashley). Most of the biker/MC books that are flooding the market now are just blah.
1.5 stars

One word. BORIIIING!!!

Don't get me wrong! I love a good MC book as much as the next girl. But this one? It bored me to tears. I had to skip pages (which I rarely do) to get to the end. And that only happened because I am too damn curious.

Never really connected with the characters either, especially the heroine.

What's up with the ending? We didn't get a lot of answers that's needed. Like what happened with (view spoiler).... I had hope for a better ending...

This book was way better than I had anticipated. Lately I've started to be really into MC books and I must say this one is the best I've read so far. Definitely an all-time top favorite of mine!

I received and read this book for the blog tour and started a book you receive for review, you never know what to expect. It can either be a hit or a miss. Luckily for me Rouch Justice did not disapppoint at all. Arianne was a great character and so was Jagger. They had amazing chemistry together and were

In the city of Conundrum, two motorcycle clubs (MCs) both believe they're the reigning MC in the area. Both one percenters—MCs that don't follow the law, outlaws, etc.—the Black Jacks and Sinner's Tribe exist in an uneasy truce as one deals with drugs and one deals with arms.

4.5 "Blood Price" Stars! Lovers of MC Romances will not want to miss Rough Justice. On the lighter side for this sub-genre that sometimes can be extremely dark, Sarah Castille does an amazing job of introducing the MC world to her readers by painting a picture of the two potential extremes, while at the same towing the line as it relates to the descriptive nature of the potentially sensitive material, so as keep this read safely within the contemporary romance genre.

Arianne Hunter was raised as a biker and she has hated every moment of it. Her father's abuse and neglect have become the norm and she wants out. Arianne has been saving to get her and her brother away and the day it was to happen everything went to hell.

Captured by a rivalry club, Arianne knows she needs to get out of there quick. President of the Sinner's Tribe MC Jagger Knight oozes alpha, danger, and stirs up a lust in Arianne she hoped was firmly put away when it came to bikers.

Lucky for her, H, the ruthless president of this gun-running, cartel-dealing, one-percenter gang believes in "innocent until proven guilty" and in giving her an opportunity for a hearing before their "executive board."

I thought this had so much potential. The story is there. You have basically a H&h from 2 rival clubs. The H, being the president of one club, and the h, the wayward daughter of the president of the rival club. And given this background, I was really curious how it would be handled. That alone provided a good backdrop to the story. We have the h, who's doing everything possible to get away from the life only to end up in the rival club's domain and the H who's main duty is to his club and has hi ...more
I think I'm on an MC kick because this is #2 and I have plans to read another one next! This was really good! There were some parts that made me angry, but that's to be expected with the misogynistic ways of MC's. I reall liked that Arianne was as badass as she was. I quite enjoyed how she was hell bent on taking care of herself and she didn't shy away from standig her ground as well as standing up to some serious tough bikers and their president(s).

My first addition to my favorites shelf for this year!

It's been a long time since I've been reading a book and not wanted to put it down. But this one definitely made me want to skip work to read :) Arianne was such a bad ass heroine! I wish I was mire like her...minus the beatings she got from her father, or the betrayal she suffered at the hands of her brother, or the overwhelming need to escape her life ;) When Arianne was with Jagger...swoon. she was perfect for him and the tenderness he sh
I loved this one. However, around 30% or 40% I was bored. It seemed to have lost its mojo for a bit. I am glad that I did not give it up because it definitely picked up. Jagger is awesomeness on a stick!!! Arianne is loyal but a real dumbass. Jagger deserves so much more than her stupid ass. I cannot wait to read the story of Dawn and Cade's in Beyond the Cut.

This should've been a 5* read, considering I was still reading it at 1:00am it's testimony to the fact that it was interesting and I didn't want to put it down BUT one of my biggest pet peeves in an mc book is when 1% bikers come off as.......... incompetent pu**y! Why would you have them as hard core then have them make decisions that make them look like clowns?? Still I'm going with a high 3.5* rounded to 4

I fell in love with Sarah Castille when I read her Redemption Series. I didn't think it could get better than that, but I was wrong, Rough Justice kicks a$$. Vexy is my new hero, she is the ultimate bada$$ biker chick who can fight, shoot, ride, repair motorcycles and beat anyone in a game of pool. And to make her even better, she's broken. Her dysfunctional family and painful past has turned her into a loner with only one goal in life, to get away from the biker life. That

The was my second read of this book and it was better than the first read. I liked the way the heroine is strong but still has a girly side. The author has a knack for writing male dialogue for the bad ass bikers that is believable and I enjoyed the verbal banter between the guys. I liked the fact that Jagger wasn't afraid to grovel to get Arianne back.

I am without words. Castille has officially left me speechless. I could barely put this one down while reading it and now I can’t stop thinking about it.

Castille’s raw and to the point writing brings this rough and tumble world to life in such a manner that you not only experience the life, but can also feel the tension and danger that these characters face every day. She doesn’t speak of MCs in abstract terms, but rather as if you’re part of this world.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Dark, gritty and rough story with a very Alpha male character. I would recommend Rough Justice for readers who love a darker tone to their stories.

Opening Sentence: “Christ.”

The Review:

Rough Justice is a dark, gritty and appropriately titled rough look into the terribly tragic world of a motorcycle club. This book deals with some really heavy issues with the exception being the love and bonds of friendship. If you really like walking on the dark

This was awesome! Intense, action packed, and super sexy!

I love a well written alpha male and Jagger, oh man, with his sexy dominance and bad-assness, he was fantastic! Even more than a good alpha male, I love a strong woman character and Arianne fit that bill perfectly. So strong, doing what she has to do to survive in this violent world that she lives in. Her attitude and challenging ways had me liking her from the very beginning.
