(Babylon MC #1)

After five years of solitude, Drew Tucker, the grieving, sadistic president of The Hounds of Babylon MC is finally out of prison with only one thing on his mind: revenge for the death of his brother.

But everything has changed since he left the small town of Babylon, Texas, and where he once owned the world around him, he now feels misguided, misplaced, and misunderstood.

I absolutely love MC books, like seriously addicted to them. When I read the synopsis for this book I instantly wanted to read this book. I loved the way the authors wrote this book. The MC theme was there but the story itself was very different and intriguing. There is no cheating, but there is a bit of grittiness in the storyline. Once I read the prologue I knew it was going to be a great read and let me tell you, the authors did not disappoint. This is the story o
3 - 3.5 ish

Loved the first half but then it got a bit too far fetched and the characters were making me roll my eyes all the time.

There was a lot of thinking and not so much talking or doing that made the pace feel slow at times which was a shame as there was plenty going on. The MC H in particular left me cold in this, the scenes where he had to go and damage things because he's feeling so ragey felt like indulging a spoilt teen to me, not attractive.

Ends on a bit of a damp squib moment with th

‘I had something else to look forward to besides death and darkness when I woke up each morning……I had a little bit of light in a world, which carried so much darkness.’

This was quite a different MC book the ones we’ve experienced, in fact, at times it didn’t really feel like an MC book, other times, we could feel the MC mood and that synopsis certainly dragged us in!

As MC books go this is pretty high up there with my favorites.

My first book by both these authors.

Without Consequence is what I call a quality read, 49 chapters containing highs, lows, angst, drama, in fact, there aren't many books where you get not just the meat of a story but the bones of the story and characters too.

I think the only other MC books I have said that about was Cat Porter who also leaves no stone unturned with the plot and you feel like you have been through one heck of a rid

I decided to read Without Consequences because I heard it was an MC book, even though that wasn't mentioned in the synopsis, and I was curious. Once I started I was concerned that I accidentally started a paranormal book, because of the 'pack' references. I enjoyed a giggle when I discovered that they are the Hounds of Babylon MC, and that's why they are a pack. I'm not sure if it's a geographical thing or what, but the multiple references of the ground, outd

Some books you read and enjoy, but they're gone the moment you shut the cover. Not Without Consequence. I was given the honour of editing this book, and it was a privilege and a pleasure to do so. Every night, I reluctantly shut my laptop down on Drew and Ayda, far later than I ought to have done, because the story just drags you in by the throat.

We're introduced to the characters and the worlds they live in - worlds that couldn't be more different if they tried. And then they are introduced to

I had the pleasure of being a BETA for this book and what a fantastic read it is. I read from cover to cover in one day, I couldn't put it down. The authors write seamlessly together to create a gripping and intense story. 'Drew Tucker' is one hell of an alpha male character and despite his flaws, I couldn't help but be more and more intrigued by him. 'Ayda' is no wilting flower, she certainly gives him a run for his money, they're definitely a dynamic duo. I'm now left eagerly awaiting the seco ...more

(Received an ARC in exchange of an honest review)

It was a fantastic read. Loved Drew Tucker !! I can't believe two people can write such a great book together. The book was very well written. The characters were very well plotted.

Drew Tucker was a strong character. A bit confuse and complex, freed from prison after five years. He is loving, caring & he has some real dark secrets & regrets shadowing him.

I had the greatest pleasure of Beta reading this for a couple of fantastically amazing authors. Victoria L James and L J Stock completely blew me away with the story of Ayda and Drew. Now, I'm not one to give away spoilers, and I'm sticking to this, but, what I will say is, OMG!! Drew is totally swoon-worthy and in a league of his own. And rightly so!

Get ready for a new book boyfriend, ladies. He had me from the start!

What a freaking amazing book!! I am literally sleep deprived from this book. Reading before bed, I would try to wait for a “good point” to stop and it never came! There was never a lull that would allow me to comfortably put the book down.

The book starts by telling stories of two different peoples lives. You know that at some point they are going to cross but their lives are so different, you can’t imagine how this could happen. The authors do an amazing job introducing these characters, Drew a

Books are born from the imagination, a vision, and some books are truly magnificent in capturing that vision and transferring it into words that can take you on a journey that you not only feel but can see in your mind’s eye.

Without Consequence does this without question.

It is written with such depth and imagination that I could place myself in ‘The Hut’ and hope to the hot MC gods that Drew picked me for a lifetime of badass biker naughtiness.

Roll up Roll up ladies! You want, no you NEED to meet Drew Tucker.

The book opens with Drew, he’s leaving prison and he’s got a lot to prove, a death to avenge and an MC family to reclaim. Read the prologue and you’ll be hooked…

Chapter one gives us Ayda and Tate! Ayda is 10 years her brothers’ senior and his guardian after they are both orphaned. They have no money and Ayda works 2 jobs to enable Tate to stay in school, she’s tough, sassy and not wallowing in the crappy hand she has been dealt.

Without Consequence is Drew and Ayda’s story.

Great book! I read a lot of MC books, and when I say a lot, I really mean A LOT. I love them. Granted, some more than others. This one grabbed me from the beginning and did not let go. This is not the type of MC book where the TSTL heroine falls for the hot dirty talking manwhore biker, they fuck like rabbits every 2 pages, and there is really no storyline except that he is a possessive biker fixated on fucking our TSTL heroine and making her his property.

The moment Drew Tucker opened his mouth, I was in love. The way the characters interacted with each other was so natural and the picture these authors paint, you feel like you're there.

I am not a huge MC reader but have read a few of them recently but to me this was not so much an MC book but more about the love story. I loved the characters and do love a bad boy turned good, however, you can never take the MC out of the man. He will always be immersed but this was more about the girl taking the leap from good girl to an MC's old lady. Taking that leap of faith because love conquers all.

I am not a huge MC theme fan. I have read too many stories that sex was the main plot in the book and any twist and turns usually ended up back in the bed or the graveyard so I was curious to see how I would like this book.

The truth is, once I started it I couldn’t put it down. Not only are the characters rich in personality and real life drama, they are developed so well they carry the story till the last page.

I think this one fell apart at about 50% for me. I stayed with it, but really wish I'd just given it up.

Too much just didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I think the writing sound [no big grammatical or spelling issues], but the story development, or rather the execution is sorely lacking. I liked the characters until I didn't. Some of what they did or said was just beyond stupid. At about 70% they completely lost their minds and any credibility I afforded to them flew ou

Drew Tucker, despite his formidable reputation, was a man shrouded in darkness who had been dealt every kind of sentence known to man. After five years of solitude, with nothing to keep him company but old ghosts and relentless demons. When Drew returns home to Babylon, Texas he realizes that things have definitely changed, himself included. Freedom wasn’t free anymore and it sure as hell didn’t come cheap. That only got worse when he crossed paths with Ayda Hanagan. Legal guardian of her teenag ...more

Without Consequence by new author Victoria L. James and L.J. Stock just "Drew" me in from page one. This is not a light hearted tale of man meets woman and it's BAM by any means. No this story is as raw as they come which is why for the life of me I was so drawn to it from start to finish.

Drew Tucker has just come back home to his MC after being inside doing his time for a crime that he committed. Now that Drew has come back home and trying to retain his right of presidency to the group
