4.5 “What do you get when you put a biker, a baby and a nanny together?” Stars


Anguish is book three in Bella Jewel’s Joker’s Wrath MC series. I am a huge fan of this author and the awesome biker series she manages to conjure up. I connect with Ms. Jewel’s writing style and always fall hard for her hard-edged and raw alpha heroes. In this series we are taken into a dark, dangerous and intriguing biker world. These men do not form part of a do-good biker

5 Spanking the Bacon Stars!!

So far with the series this is by far my favorite book in it..I looked a wee bit crazy reading this in public snorting from trying to hold my giggles in!! Loved Jaylah and loved broody, silent, sexy - as - hell Mack even more!!

I'm going to rate this a 4.5 stars...but truly I enjoyed it as if it was a five star!! This is definitely my favorite book of the series! There were only a few issues I had that I couldn't ignore, and if you all read my updates, you would know what the hero did to really irk me at one point!! Besides that, and sometimes Mack being a total douche when it came to his baby..(at first)this book had humor, wicked hot sex....and friggen studly biker dudes that I could only dream of ever coming across! ...more
2.5 I don't like you, Mack.

Can't say I liked this book too much. True, it got better later on, but I wanted to DNF it at the beginning. I don't know if I'm glad I finished it or it was a waste of time...

The male MC has a weird way of dealing with his problems and I really don't like his personality. I know he's suppose to be the good guy but sometimes I felt like I could relate to the bad guy better than to him. The bad guy has a reason for being like that, Mack is just an as*hole.

Recommends it for: Biker-themed romance junkies, or anyone else looking for an entertaining, angsty love story.
The third book in the Jokers' Wrath series, 'Anguish', was my favorite so far. Like the earlier books in this series, it was a quick read with plenty of action and angst to keep my interest piqued. It was funny and heartwarming at times. It was also a surprisingly emotional story despite the short length, but not in a bawl your eyes out way. Lots of action! Hot sex scenes! Integration of characters from prior books in the series! Aside from the ease with which Jaylah forgives Mack's transgressio ...more

This is my favourite book of the series so far. It has everything I always look for in a book. 4 anguished stars.

Mack the hero has it all.

Tortured soul, emotionally detached and broody as hell. ✔
Good looks and great heritage. ✔
Built like a shit brickhouse, soft and gooey but a biker with a beautifully baby boy. ✔

Jaylah the heroine compliments Mack.

Sassy and beautiful. ✔
Crazy pants. ✔
overly stunning and just right for Mack. ✔

Jaylah meant well but didn't really think things through so she gets
Re-read 5/13/17 Still my favorite of the series, don't know if I have the patience to read all the others :P

I've been re-reading some of the Reapers books, so I was really in the mood for a good biker story. This one definitaly delivered. Since I'm known for reading books out of order, I started with this ons (best reviews), so I haven't read the first two books yet. This did not affect the storyline for me, so they can be read as stand alones.

☾DNF at like 70% I just couldn't finish. I thought I would like it and I didn't. This is just one of those books that you really want to like but cant (at least for me anyways). I didn't like the main character, it's nothing personal to the book. In fact I enjoyed the way it was written and the dual pov's. I just did not like Mack and Jaylah enough to be able to finish.

I am not a huge fan of this Biker Series, I read the first book and didn't think much of it, and then this one wasn't any better. Don't get me wrong I loved Marcus and Katia in Til Death but these bikers are just assholes!!
Jaylah was sassy and fun so what went wrong? Once she caught some feelings she turned into someone completely different, and to me she lost her sass.. And Mack was an ass, and he kept pushing her away and she was like a dog latched to a bone! And I kept screaming at her wake u

I didn’t hate it but I didn’t like it either. For me the book was kind of all over the place. Some parts of it read like a soap opera there was so much unnecessary drama. The drama with Jaylah and her ex annoyed me. Mack having an affair with his brother’s wife and his brother trying to get revenge, didn’t really care for that story line. I also didn’t like how much Ingrid was mentioned in the story, I felt that took away from Mack and Jaylah and I didn’t really feel the connection between them. ...more

This one is my favorite thus far in the series.
I am a fan of Bella Jewel … but for some reasons, I am just not a fan of this series (so far).

Same as the other two before this, there are too many parts of the story that just turns me off. Like does it make it okay or acceptable to snarl and be rough with the nanny (even with sexual innuendo) because she had the hots for him or maybe because she is desperate for the money?

Oct 30, 2014 rated it it was ok

I like for my Heros and heroines to be over their ex's whether they are dead or alive and i felt as though Mack really wasn't over Ingrid.. She was mentioned a bit too much for my liking. I understand the lose of a loved one such as death is harder to deal with then a break up but it would have been nice if Mack's love for Jaylah was more.. he does mention it once that she's "better" then Ingrid but I just didn't feel that while reading this.

His love for Ingrid really shined in this book

“Never had somethin’ that was all mine or real. You’re real, and you’re all mine.”

With the first two books in her Jokers’ Wrath MC series, Bella Jewel didn’t have me convinced that this is a series worth investing time into. But, Anguish changed that. This is exactly what I was looking and hoping for from this series.

Again, we are presented with a conventional plot of drug dealers, cheating exes and awful pasts, yet, in this, it catches you unaware, its stran

Jaylah was amazing. Loyal, protective, witty and super funny.
Mack reminded me lot KA's heroes: a guy of a few words, possessive and hot *sigh*
Action packed as all MC’s stories.

After reading MELANCHOLY, I've waited for the release of this book ... I saw a glimpse of Jaylah, and I liked her spunk from the very beginning.

I know it's not rare to read novels with a heroine with a fighting spirit. I like Jaylah a lot, she's feisty and she's a very interesting character.

What I like about Bella Jewel's novel is that, I never got bored reading the stories, there's always something good waiting on every page.

This is a good novel, I love the story flow, I love the c

I was really looking forward to Mack's book. I totally fell for Mack in the last book. He was so dark, broody, and mysterious. And while I did love this book there were a few things that didn't work for me and caused this book to be a 4 star read instead of 5. Mack was just so sexy, and while I loved him to pieces I hated the fact that he was madly in love with another woman (who died) before Jaylah.

"You have nice's only an assumption." Mack he's seriously bada**, "you sleepin' on the couch in eff-me panties?"

I loved Mack and Jay's Book!

For me it was the best in the series so far. Mack was definitely standoffish and broody but Jaylay was the right type of woman to stand up to him and push him out of the bubble of solitude he forced himself to live in.

I loved her sassy attitude and their relationship just worked from the beginning, even if it got off to a rocky start

This is definitely one of my favorite Biker Series.

I can't wait to read Marcus and Kai's story! Going to be EPIC!!

Thanks for an awesome

Anguish is book 3 in the Jokers' Wrath series and its my favorite so far. I loved Maddox and Santana but Mack and Jaylah were even better. Mack a very sexy and yummy Native American who is struggling with the fact that the love of his life is gone and he is left with a 2 month old son he didn't know existed. His struggle is heartbreaking. Jaylah was funny, sweet and just what Mack and Diesel needed. Looking forward to Pippa and Tykes book.
