Quirky is definitely the theme through out this book. Who knew you could both laugh your ass off at the kooky heroine while being grossed out on how a killer named Cook kills his victims.

This was kinda a crazy book but it worked. We finally get Trever “Coal” Blakes story and see what made him into such a dark person who hasn't had a relationship since high school and only pays for sex.

3.5 Coal's story, yay!

my initial reaction

While I was reading the first book in this series, I was thinking about Coal's story.
I'm the first to admit it was a bit of a disappointment. Not because of him (he is absolutely wonderful), but I didn't really like the female character.

Even more, the plot was a bit rushed. Cook's part and the weird gym guy (forgot his name, sorry) went way too fast, didn't actually get to feel them.

This is the reason GR needs a .5 star rating system!

Coal is the third book in the Regulators MC by Chelsea Camaron. It was well written and told in the dual POV from both Coal and Paisley.

Trevor "Coal" Blake. He was tough, sexy, cautious and guarded; yet, big hearted towards those he cared about.

Paisley Asher. She was simplistic, quirky, an environmentalist and focused on positive energy and light for all those around her.

The storyline provided an interesting perspective and not the normal verbiage. Through Paisley, Camaron discussed balancing c

Coal and Paisley !

Lets start off by saying this is new author to us and we enjoyed reading their latest installment in their MC Romance series.I loved reading MC Romances so we are always looking to add to our current book collection.

I did enjoy this story.I found the characters to be like-able as well as engaging.The story dabbles in the current problems arising in the MC and how the members are dealing with them.Each member's different personality blended into the story making it a fun read.Al

Love Coal!!

I mean who wouldn't love a bad ass biker with a huge heart even if he thinks his is black a coal.

One bad moment in time can change the course of your life. It can change how you view yourself and the world. That one moment in Coal's life tainted him, it changed him and it blackened his soul. It left him with questions about himself and his past. It left him thinking he wasn't good, that he didn't deserve good. My heart hurt for him.

After reading the first two books in this series and seeing how dark Coal is, I was excited to get his book but I was so disappointed.

I like getting his back story and why he insists upon paying for sex, but Paisley got on my nerves. She seemed so immature and her 'vibes' she was feeling and cleansing her aura was not the type of woman I pictured for Coal. I felt like when he met her, he softened up and became a different man, but not the one I was hoping.

I still wanted his badass self to come

4.5 Stars!

Chelsea Camaron and Jessie Lane are a dream team when it comes to writing. This may be my first book by them as a writing duo, but man they have hooked me for more in the future. And while I'm not a huge fan of motorcycle club romances... these ladies made it work for me in the best kinds of ways possible.

Coal was a fast, sexy, intense, suspenseful book that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time I read this story. Paisley and Trevor's journey was so good... complex, intriguing

This is a good read with an very interesting and quirky lead female whom I loved. Of course I loved Coal but Paisley just made this book.

The book starts with us being introduced to Coal as a teenager. When his world comes crashing down his military father does what he is asked in order to get his son away from the problem. His parents were never really sure their son was innocent leaving Coal to not go back home. Forward to present time and Coal has a dark heart and ri

This is the third part of the Regulators MC series, and this series just keeps getting better and better! We know from the previous books that Coal has some... issues with trust and women, and we finally get to find out why. As VP for the Regulators, Coal has seen and done some really crazy stuff, but he has definitely met his match in Paisley.

Paisley meets Coal after she runs into him, like literally with her car, and even though Coal is perfectly ok, she still feel

Trevor "Coal" Blake is one H.O.T. biker man that is the true definition of dirty-talker. He is dark and mysterious with a side of danger. Fighting his own inner demons and a lifetime of turmoil over a incident from his youth.


Paisley aka Pixie endures tragedy at a young age, and learns to deal and cope in some very unique ways. Some may consider her quirky but she owns her choices and tries to right wrongs. I adored her character and enjoyed reading her ways of handling

This isn't my favourite read by Chelsea Camaron, I have to admit. I LOVED Coal but I found Paisley drove me insane. I didn't like her one bit; stalker, too nosy, annoying (in a bad way) and an all round pain in the ass. I found her chapters frustrating to read and had to keep stopping to read because she made me angry a fair bit. But I loved Coal's chapters!! He's one of those characters that will stick with you, even though his choice of women is a little questionable.

Coal is the third book in the Regulators MC series and while you can read it as a standalone I would suggest reading the other books first so you know some of the other characters and history. This review is a hard one to write and rate. On one hand I liked the different direction Ms. Camaron & Ms. Lane took the main characters and when I say opposites attract I mean just that but on the other hand I als

This is the third book in the Regulators MC series by these two authors. We have seen glimpses of "Coal" through the first two books. As the clubs VP, we have seen him handle some pretty tough situations. He also has some well known but different ideas about the women he hooks up with.

This book brings us his heart wrenching back story. All the pieces finally fall into place. Bottom line, he doesn't feel worthy to have a relationship with any one ever again. Then he literally gets bumped into by

I never thought I'd be a fan of MC romance but after reading Beth Flynn's Nine Minutes trilogy I have been on the hunt for more of the MC genre. Coal was an awesome read for me and one of few I've taken a chance on. I will definitely be reading more of the Regulators series!

Paisley "Pixie" Asher is as quirky as they come. I constantly found myself shaking my head and laughing at her methods but if it works for her who are we to judge. Despite her quirks she is a very lovable character and I coul

AHHH Coal. Tall. Dark. Dangerous. Those are words to describes the man who “only pays for pussy”!! The book starts right off explaining what happened to Coal to make him so damn hard. The poor guy…

After getting to know Coal and Paisley I was trying to figure out how the authors were going to pull these two off together as a couple as they're opposites in most things.

When Paisley bumped into Coal she has been off balance and she needed to make it right. Coal felt that she didn't need to, no harm, no foul but the world kept throwing them together. When they do spend time together and actually start to talk you can feel the chemistry between these two. Coal was perfectly fine the way his li

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book and oh man this series just gets better with each new book. I love Coal in all his dark glory, secrets sometimes are not meant to be hidden, truths that should have been told a long time ago can make or break someone and with Coal its his past that shaped him into the man he is now. I will be honest though I could not relate to Paisley at all, she drove me nuts. That did not affect my rating though, sometimes I cannot relate to one char ...more

I loved Coal from Chelsea Camaron and Jessie Lake! When Paisley bumps into Coal's world nithers life will ever be the same. Trevor "Coal" Blake has been living his life with no attachments besides his family in the Regulators MC, but all that changes when Paisley bumps his motorcycle. Paisley is a woman in touch with her environment, keeping a balance in her aura and chi, is careful what she puts into her body, kind of a hippie in her own way.

This is the third book in the amazing Regulators series, and in my opinion, each book just keep getting better and better. Coal is a sexy patched in member, who has secrets which keep him from having relationships. Paisley is all about eating organic, and keeping herself healthy. These two are such an unlikely couple, but they work great together.
This is a dark, gritty, sexy, read, and the collaboration between these two authors is fantastic. I cannot wait to read more from them. I recommend the

Coal and Paisley complete opposites, but yet are so right for each other.
Coal has a dark past that he carries for a very long time. Things happened to him, or so he thought. His dark overshadows the good he does, but one lucky person pointing it out makes him think.
A chance or should I say a “bump” brings Paisley into his life. Paisley accidently bumps Coal’s bike with her car, and she has to right this to keep her balance in life. Coal being Coal won’t let her do that easily. That doesn’t st

This was my first book by this duo. I'm a die hard Chelsea Cameron fan. I absolutely they did an amazing job. They took two totally different personalities and made it work. For these characters opposites really do attract. I have to admit I wasn't sure how these characters were going to work out. All's it takes is finding that one person to be your light that can chase away your demons. I can't wait to catch up on the rest of the series and see what else these ladies have in store. ...more
I enjoyed the first two books in this series and was really looking forward to the story about Coal and his background. I hate to say it but this book was boring to me. The h is a small "pixie" woman on the nerdy side who is 100% vegan, organic, soul and body cleansing, negative/positive aura extremist. I mean really OTT. I read more things about natural foods, natural remedies and just natural cleansing of the spirit and body that I've ever read on a website devoted to that topic. Coal's deep d ...more

I have been waiting for the mysterious Coal’s story. He is quiet, dark and mysterious what can I say I have been drawn to him from day one. He is one you don’t want to mess with or make mad. Then we have Paisley…oh sweet Paisley…she is the polar opposite of Coal. BUUUUTTTT you know what they say about opposites.

The Pixie and Her Coal!

Once again, I was not let down by these authors and their gift to write an MC book that I would personally classify as one, a real one. This genre is not always an easy one to write because as a reader, I have read many and know the difference. MC books should be gritty, raw, emotional in all sorts of ways including ways you can't imagine but this is also romance too and there is definitely that element that ties everything together.

Hmmm...after waiting almost two years for this book, I must say this wasn't all that great. I mean it was nice seeing Ice and Hammer moving along within their relationships but I expected more from Coal's story. I just feel that everything that happened with Amber was just fucking ridiculous. It was obvious that the girl was lying but for Coal to hold on to the thought that he might be a rapist...utterly stupid. Only because he knows the type of man he is, drunk or not, he knows himself, so why ...more

“I tracked down a vegan baker and had this cake special ordered for tonight. It’s a vanilla cake made with almond milk and maple syrup, glazed with cocoa icing. The damn thing smells delicious, yet my mouth is as dry as the Sahara Desert. That’s probably because of the message. Or, I should say, question iced on top of the cake.

Walking up to the kitchen, I see her shaking her booty as she sings to the loud music blasting through the apartment. In her hand, she has a knife and is cutting up a banana. On the stove, I can see a small pot of melted dark chocolate and what looks like toasted and chopped walnuts on a plate.

“Hey, babe! You’re home too early.” She gives me a fake pout. “I wanted to surprise you.”

Setting my chin on her shoulder, I place my hands on her hips and watch as she starts cutting up another banana. “Surprise me with what, Pixie?”

“Something sweet for us to eat while we watch the movie tonight.”

Kissing the side of her neck, I murmur into her skin, “I’ve got your sweet covered.”

She looks at the box with curious eyes. “Oh? And what do you have there, Trevor Blake?”

Lifting the lid, I push the now visible cake with its question closer to her, and she gasps. Her hands start to tremble, and I watch the hand holding the knife with a wary eye. Perhaps I should have asked her to put that down first.

I watch her face as her eyes tear up at the question in red icing.

Will You Marry Me?

The ring is the dot at the bottom of the question mark, shiny and blinking at her.

Standing here, I wait for an answer.

And I wait more.

Thing is, it’s too quiet. There are silent tears running down her face, but she’s not said a single word.


What if she isn’t ready for this?

I open my mouth to try to fix this, but suddenly my little sprite is squealing loudly, jumping up and down.

I should be fucking thrilled that she’s happy, but all I can see is that knife bouncing up and down with her little body. She’s talking so fast I can barely understand what she’s saying.


“Babe, happy as hell that you’re excited, but can you do me a favor really quick?”

Paisley stops jumping up and down and nods her head repeatedly like a bobble head doll. I have to stop myself from laughing at her.

She smiles brightly at me. “If you wanna know my answer, it’s yes!”

“Well, that, too. But, Pixie, can you please put down the knife? Would really fucking hate it if one of us got accidentally stabbed on the night that I’m asking you to become my wife.”
