Unfortunately, I could not connect with this story at all. It had a lot of editing issues, lack of punctuation, etc. I can overlook little things, but I had even more issue with the dialogue. Grim is a biker and so he speaks with a grungy slang. That's fine. But a lot of his dialogue and inner monologue mixed up that slang with dialogue that almost felt too formal. The lack of contractions in a lot of the prose made it feel too stiff, not relaxed at all for biker banter. It just didn't flow natu ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a decent length biker novella, set in Kentucky, and revolves around the Black Rebel Riders MC. Grim is second to head man in charge, and Red is the biker chick of his dreams. I am a little unsure of how to rate this book.

The Good:
1. .Everything is told from Grim’s perspective which negates my normal distaste for first person narratives (too many annoying heroines tainted it for me).
2. The story is gritty, and doesn't white wash the

Great start

Grim is the first story in the Black Rebel Riders MC Series. Grim Jones, VP, and Slim Black, President, have some bad history with rival club, Devils Rejects. Things are gonna go from bad to worse when the Rejects President, Hook, looks to seek revenge after his son gets killed by his own woman and she (Red) winds up at the Rebels’ clubhouse for protection. She also ends up with Grim and is pregnant with his baby. Nothing’s easy or sugarcoated in this lifestyle ~ it’s survival of the

This was just so-so

The writing and dialogue was very choppy and lacked realism. The Grim and Red insta-love thing was a little hard to believe. I didn't like the ending...(view spoiler).

Absolutely loved it !!

This is the introduction of The Black Rebel Riders and tells the story of Grim and Gypsy red. He doesn't know what it is about her (apart from her milky skin and flame red hair) but before her he never wanted to CLAIM any woman as his old lady, but then Red turns up and has him breaking all the club rules.
What is it about her ? Why does he want her so much ?? Can he change for her ?
Can she really change her Gypsy ways and settle down ? All will be revealed x

I was hooked the moment I started reading and was not let go until I was thrown out the door onto my butt at the end.

Grim is everything a biker should be. He's not soft. He's rugged and wild. He knows he is not good and he does not hide that fact when Gypsy Red walks into his life, but there is something about her that draws him to her and vice versa.

This was a really good book. Grim is a dark sexy alpha male VP of the Black Rebel Riders’ MC. His world is stopped when he finds Red on the side of the road, broken and battered so he takes her back to the clubhouse. This was a wild hot read that reminded me of a tv show that use to come on. He was so sweet to her, even though it was out of his character to care for others besides his brothers in his motorcycle club. The club is at war with Devils Rejects. This book was full of twist and hot dir ...more

Raw in your face kind of book. Loved it! Grim is so hardcore, you would not think he could be capable of love. Red is just as hardcore yet she brings out the best in him. I found this book to be quite emotional. I was in tears for Grim and Red. Don't get me wrong I am not an emotional person so when a book affects me to the point of tears that tells me it's an awesome book, very well written to make me feel the need to actually cry, usually I'm like oh that's sad but no tears and with this book ...more

Grim is a quick read with plenty of story packed in. It centers on the Black rebel Riders MC and their ongoing struggle with the Devil’s Rejects. Grim is living his life and minding his own business when he finds a beauty on the side of the road and brings her home.

This is a great beginning to what I think will be an awesome MC series. The plot was unique and clever. The danger in what they were doing was delivered beautifully. It felt real. I connected with each character and with an MC book,

I tried, I really did but 2 is the best I can do for the entire series and yes I read every single book. The characters were not likeable, not a single one has any redeemable qualities. Baby is an over grown whore brat, Striker and Rebel are just cheating bastards that are only concerned with themselves {let me marry the woman I love SO much…oh and wait, now that I am married I am going to screw the stripper whore….beg forgiveness and go back to the stripper whore}.

This is a gritty, raw, crassly realistic book. It is either the superlative stereotype of bikers or the most realistic bad-boy biker book you will read. While the author describes the main character, Grim, as a hot alpha male, I would describe the characters in this book as quake-in-your-boots-and-pray-you-never-meet-in-a-dark-alley types. I found the plot compelling, but a bit edgy for me. I didn't care for any of the characters, but I got how realistic they were being portrayed. I have to say ...more

This was an awesome book. Its fast paced and non stop. I absolutely love it and cannot wait to read the others in the series.

Grim is an unusual man. He tells exactly what he wants without any kind of regret and he will not tell you anything to make it easier for yoy to handle. He puts it all upfront no matter what.

Gypsy Red a.k.a. Red is a woman out to save her life and her daughter's life. She has been living in hell for years and has finally gotten out but she had to leave her daughter behind.

Grim was a fantastic MC read! I thought the romance and action between Red and Grim was great. He was so sweet to her, even though it was out of his character to care for others besides his brothers in his motorcycle club. The dueling action between the clubs was very believable and this story had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The ending leaves me wanting more. I can't wait to read what happens with Grim next.

I would recommend this to those that like erotic MC novels.

Received an Arc for this novella, this was very, very, fast paced and intense. I didn't think I was going to enjoy the writing style at first, because everything happend at lightening fast speed, but I did enjoy this.
Lots of things happened that I'm sure is set up to draw you right in to the continuing story of Grimm, his family and the Black Devils MC. Excited for the next one!!!

The story about Grim (aka 'Jack', VP of the Black Rebel Riders' MC) and 'Red'(On the run from the Devil's Reject MC). The two MC's do not play nicely with each other. Red does something very dirty to the Devil's Reject MC and is running from them. She meets Grim along the way, and Grim wants to save her by 'claiming' her in order to protect her from the Devil's Reject MC.

Everything in this book happened at warped speed. Shortly after Grim rescues Red, he decides to 'claim' Red a

Grim is the vice-president of the Black Rebel Riders’ MC that he and his best friend, Slim Black founded and Slim headed up as the president. This book is the story of Grim’s beginning, so we can assume the following books will be further down on the timeline.

This is a book about Grimm, the bad ass motorcycle VP of the MC's in a fictional Kentucky town. Grimm is a bad guy. He knows he's a bad guy and he's okay with that.

Then he spots Red on the side of the road one dark night while he is riding. From the moment he sees her, POW he feels for her. He is so entraced by her that all his natural reflexes go out the window. Grimm decides to help her and gets involved in whatever is

Grim is amazing.... I received an ARC copy of this book and literally read it within a day. I will try to stay vague in my review because this is an absolute must read so I don't wanna give to many spoilers away. The story reads like a prologue and makes you crave more. As most of Glenna's books do. Grims character description is that of a big tough biker but the story reveals his romantic side which is exactly the opposite of how you would picture him which gives him great depth.

If you are looking for a sappy and sweet fairytale love story – LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE! This story is gritty, dirty, and REAL. I enjoyed these characters. The story was well written and fast paced. I love the straight forward, in your face realness. I read this in one sitting because I absolutely could not put it down. I was drawn in from the first page and could not stop until the last page.

Terrible! I didn't even finish and that is saying something coming from me!

Grim meets Gypsy Red on the side of the road, takes her straight back to his trailer breaking two of the club rules, treats her basically like a princess and the next day declares war on a rival MC without having claimed her or barely touched her, let alone even getting to know her! I mean she could be a psycho crazy arse b*tch but he wouldn't have a clue and he's ready to go to war?? Puh-lease! It's a ridiculous premise
