From the world of Carolina Bad Boys! Hunter Sexton is too hot to handle . . .


My call-sign is GHOST. My roadname, too. I keep my head down, stay off the grid, fly under the radar. I’m the rough, gruff, good guy who does bad things for pay.

JB is my most recent mistake. The MC babe is innocence wrapped up in a rockin’ body. Don’t get me wrong, she has a wicked side,

The first in Rie Warren’s Carolina Bad Boys spin-off series, Bad Boys of Retribution MC, and a first time read by this author for me. I must say, I was impressed by the author's ability to capture the essence and develop both the lead characters throughout the novel. Hunter and JB were fierce, passionate, sexy and sassy, lovable and cute. Both with hearts of gold. Throughout the book, we're given different sides of each character, and we see how they entwine themselves into the story line, addin ...more

Self note: I don't want to read a hero having had a virgin before and wanted to marry her. No thank you . how is heroine going to feel special!

Oh, Rie Warren. What in the actual fuck are you? Some kind of sexy-book-writing alien? With each new read, Ms. Warren impresses me more and more with her writing, her funny and fresh stories, and her infinitely lickable and likeable characters. Hunter, the Ghost, is whew, de-lic-ious.

A good guy with a bad, bad past, Hunter is like the magazine from L.A. Confidential… “Off the record, on the QT and very Hush-Hush.” He knows he’s no good for anyone, but that doesn’t stop him from wanting to dirty

When the hunter becomes the huntee...
Oh my, another sexy Bad Boy. Who needs sleep when Hunter showed up on my kindle, it's overrated, right? The chemistry between Hunter & JB was explosive from the instant their eyes met. EVERYONE knew they wanted each other, the air was thick with their lust for each other. But...of course there's always a but, right? Hunter has a dark past full of secrets. He doesn't feel like he's good enough for her. And guess what JB stands for; it's Jail Bait. Is she r

This is a super sexy hot MC read. This book is certainly my favourite of this authors so far.

This is Hunters story aka Ghost. He gets the name Ghost as he's so quiet and discreet. He's dark, sexy and mysterious. He's a whole lotta sexiness. We also see a kind soft side to Hunter as well. Not sure which side I preferred. Dam I liked both lol When Hunters past comes back to haunt him he does what he can for who he loves

JB wants Hunter. She's a teacher but she's also a tough cookie. I really liked
Monica **can't read fast enough**
Hunter is a biker bad boy with a cloaked past. He has a seriously complicated professional and personal life that are about to collide. Hunter needs to settle into a more stable life with fewer complications but his past won't let him go. He definitely didn't need the complication of falling for a woman who at first glance exudes innocence but once you get close exposes an entirely different woman that he can't stay away from.

Professionally JB is a mild mannered teacher by day.But in her privat

**I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.**

Hunter has all the elements of a great MC book. You can only do so much with an MC book that hasn't been done. I have read others that have some gang/mob/other MC affiliation that have been good, but I think the "feel" of this one is what made it stand out.

I loved the depth of Hunter's character, the past that made him who he is, but because of his past he's forgetting who he really is. The men of Retribution played a pa

Hunter just doesn't beat around the bush, “I only do subtle when I work. Not when I’m effing. I’m probably no good at romance either, but I take care of my people, and I can definitely take care of you in all the right ways, sweetheart.” JB sometimes has to focus her man back on track, his thoughts are generally otherwise occupied, “let’s get back to Jack, shall we?” she asked. Probably a better idea than whipping out my c*** and jacking off in front of her. I nodded." Hunter he knows how to gro

Ms. Warren has done it again with this blistering first offering in the Bad Boys of Retribution MC series, a spinoff of the uber erotic Carolina Bad Boys series.

As soon as Hunter Sexton lays eyes on the First Ladies of Redemption MC newbie JB, he's done in. For years, Hunter has been an undercover ghost, only recently deciding to settle in SC to be close to his son Jack. When he attends an event at Jack's school, he learns that JB is none other than Miss Jessica Barnes, kindergarten teacher extr

Hunter Sexton…he’s not what he seems. Some think he is with the MC, others the police but one thing for sure is he is a ghost. When a JB, a hot young woman, walks into the MC he is hypnotised immediately with her looks and attitude. But can he afford to have another person close to him? Especially when his past catches up to him?

“Chicks did not get to me, not anymore. I was thirty-one goddamn years old—and a hell of a lot older if you counted my kills—yet I’d never reacted to a woman like this

Wow what a ride! Rie Warren hits another one out of the park with the sexy and thrilling Hunter.

Hunter has a past where the lines between right and wrong were blurred for the greater good, but after his last job he's wondering if there really is such a thing. He's blackened his soul for that good and the only thing keeping him together is the love of a little boy. He doesn't have anything more to give anyone else…not eve

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.

Hunter has a past, a history that needs to stay that way. But it catches up with him, big time. Jessica gets caught in the cross fire.

From the blurb, I expected Jessica to have her say, but she doesn't! So this book was down a bit from the point that became clear. As much as I don't like multiple POV told in the first person, SINGLE POV is worse!! I need to know what she's thinking and feeling, especially at key points along the way.

We're all friends here; you can admit to licking the cover of this book. ;)

This is the first book in a spin-off series, but I'm happy to report that it's fully-readable as a standalone. There's not a lot of jabbering explaining past book events or persons, which is also awesome. I love when I can just hop into a whole new world with only minimal introduction.

This is the story of Hunter and Jessica aka JB. GRRRROOWWLL
Hunter is an all around badass, also known as Ghost. He has a less than clean past that makes him lay low, if not for his son, he would just be the proverbial here today gone tomorrow type of person. But all changes when he meets a sexy woman on a Ducati who turns his life upside down.
Jessica is a school teacher by day and a femme fatale by night. She is a woman who is very confident in her sexuality and has no problem expressing what sh

"Hunter" is the first installment of the Bad Boys of Retribution series, a spin-off to Rie Warren's Carolina Bad Boys series. It follows the title character, Hunter, the latest member of Retribution MC, who also happens to be an undercover agent of sorts and a 'wannabee' police officer of sorts.

He's got a past that he wants to leave behind, but unfinished business has a way of following you around, which is not what you want when your goals are to change your life, keep your kid safe and try not

I usually love MC books, but I just couldn't get into this one. I couldn't connect with the characters and it just wasn't a good fit for me.
A good start to a series. Of any MC book I've read Hunter has to be the sweetest assassin I've come across. I loved the strong confident heroine that JB was.

Hot and funny too!

I really enjoyed this book. This spin off series, the previous series, and author have sucked me in and I felt like I knew all the characters and can't wait to read more about all of them. I love the Charleston and Mt Pleasant area so it was great to imagine the places Rie writes about in my mind. It's hard to tell you how great this book is without spoilers. But, if you want some great laughs, hot and sexy couples, pretty strong female characters, and handsome men who are also

I have given this story a 5 star rating because it was awesome.
Hunter, was an amazingly hot bad boy with a lot of secrets, easy to see why women swooned when he was in the room.
Action packed, fast paced, well written & definitely why I love a great motorcycle club romance.

The reason I like reading a series from start to finish is because I feel like I miss something when reading in the middle or even the spin off before the original. UGH!! All in all this book was suspenseful as well as beautiful!!

Rie Warren can do no wrong in my eyes!! Every book she releases just gets better, hotter,sexier, more intense and more bad-ass then the last one. I actually asked her if I could get inside her head. Even if it's just for like 30 minutes I'll take it.

I knew when I read Steele:Into Your Heart I was going to really like Hunter. He helped Brodie get Ashe back from her crazy stalker/kidnapper. We had learned that Hunter was an undercover cop with Ashe. But, there was more

Wow, just wow HUNTER!!! I have read other books from this author but I have to say that I really – really enjoyed Hunter, from the first page to the very page. Hunter is a spinoff of the California Bad Boys series. We meet the Retribution MC in Steele Into Your Heart, book #3 and I have been waiting not so anxiously to see more of this MC. One thing I know about Ms. Warren is her ability to write and bring readers really hot, dirty alpha men and this was not the except

Hunter Sexton AKA The ghost. If you can't tell by his name he has lived a pretty dangerous life. He has left that life behind to settle into a life between his job and the MC life. He doesn't need any more complications in his life, Complications come int his life in the sassy, ball busting form of new MC chick JB, But with his past and having enough people in his life that can be used against him can he really afford to have this girl in his life?

I have read several of Ms. Warren’s books from the various genres she writes and have enjoyed every single one of them. As a huge fan of her Carolina Bad Boys series and having finally gotten a chance to read Steele: Into Your Heart last week, I was chomping at the bit to dive into Hunter and the Bad Boys of Retribution series. Where Steele upped the action and bad boy vibe of the Carolina Bad Boys series, Hunter increases i
