4.5 stars

Awesome read! Loved Poet and Titan. Well crafted and interesting characters that left me wanting more. Definitely a different take on motorcycle club with a female president but it worked. Looking forward to starting the next book in the series.

If you’re in the mood for a biker-lite read with a difference, this little book should fit the bill. At times it kind of stretches what is believable, but it was still an enjoyable evening read.

Poet is the first female president of Hells Redemption 1% MC. Being raised by a bunch of bikers while also being beautiful means she can kick your ass, shoot you down and be pretty while she’s doing it. Poet is a great at strategizing and when her father, the current MC President is killed, the vote is un

Wow, this book is so different from Juli Valenti’s other books. But, it’s just as great as the others. I love the story and the characters. I’m ready for more already. I know there are a ton of MC books out there, and it can be hard to find one that’s different. We.., look no further, this one is definitely different.

Poet Butler grew up in the Hells Redemption MC. Her dad was the President, and after his death, the brothers voted her the president. Yes, I said HER! Yes, she is a bad ass alpha fe
I loved it! A female President OMG!
It shows us that women can be more than just bunnies, sweeties, old ladies, whatever. They have balls too. YEAH!

This book is so far out of my normal realm of interest that if I hadn’t heard so many good things about it, Poet would never have even been on my radar. I’m not generally interested in most romance, nor am I particularly interested in any sort of motorcycles. Motorcycle club romances are quite popular right now thanks to shows like Sons of Anarchy (which I have NOT seen and highly doubt I will, due to a complete and utter lack of interest).

To say Poet pleasantly surprised me would be a giant un

Great read!!! Not only do we get a hot alpha male, we get a gorgeous, bad ass alpha female who can stand toe to toe with him and not back down!!!! I just loved when she grabbed her Pink Lady .38 special revolver and threatens to shoot him after her got her all hot and bothered!!! Yesss!!! Titan knows he's gonna have to work to get into her pants!! As the only female president of an MC, Poet has gained the respect of her club members. After several attacks against her club, Poet is left reeling a ...more

Loved this one!! Pretty much read it in one sitting (not and life and all...but the book went where I went, lol). Poet was a phenomenal character - strong, fierce and courageous, with a vulnerable soft side hidden away until Titan comes along and basically demands she show it. He was the perfect match for her in so many ways, but I especially appreciated how the author managed to balance the relationship between these two characters without ever compromising what either was abou ...more

I love Juli Valenti and was so excited to read this book! It is different from her other books but every bit as good and well written! Poet is a bada**! I fell in love with her from the beginning. I loved that she is the president of a motorcycle club and very respected. The story really flowed well and I liked that we got little bits of backstory throughout the book. Titan is hot and awesome. He didn't give up on Poet and fought just as hard for her as she

Loved Poet!

Poet, tough as nails, strong woman, kick-@$$, doesn't take anything Pres of Hells Redemption! Titan, sexy, alpha, bad-@$$ Pres of Bishops Reign! When these two collide, sparks are flying all over the place! Poet and her club are being targeted. She gets beaten up and one of her men gets shot during a run by a rival club. While trying to find out who is behind the attacks, betrayal is uncovered in surprising directions! This book kept me turning the page! Loved the book and can't wait

What really intrigued me about this story was the plot. A female MC Pres in a male dominated world? I was curious as to how she would pull it off. It's the fist I've read from the author and it won't be my last. The characters were interesting and Titan was one hot dude. I'm not quite convinced that the antagonist could have pulled off what he did over our heroine without her not having a single clue, but hey, they are stories for a reason : )There were a few minor grammatical errors but they di ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I'm not a big fan of MC books but this book is different. Poet is the first female president of the Hell's Redemption Motorcycle Club. She is very strong and well-respected by members of her club. Titan, who is the president of another MC, is protective, alpha, and HOT! Threats to Poet and her club bring Poet and Titan together.

This book is so exciting and so much is happening that I could not put it down. I loved it! It is a must-read if you

I loved Poet it was the first book I have read by Juli Valentine and I was not disappointed. The storyline of a female leading a biker club drew me in along with the awesome cover. Poet was a badness and I fell in love with her and Titan. There relationship was one of a kind and I loved how different it was from other books I have read. While reading Poet I had no idea what was going to happen and I loved where the author took us. It was a biker story like many I have read but so unique

This book had me hooked all the way until the end. There were twists and turns that kept me guessing. I really could not have predicted the end. The chemistry between Poet and Titan was off the charts. The writing was excellent. It was fast paced, but she took her time in all the right places. I love this book.

I really enjoyed this story, it was different to other MC stories in that one of the presidents was female. Great start to a new series I look forward to reading more.

Solid 4 stars!

First off, I love Poet (h) - this is the first MC book I've read where the President is female and I loved that automatically this sets the story up differently.

Second, I liked how Titan (H) pursued her - I can feel how much he liked her, and showed it in small ways.

There were a few things that didn't quite make sense to me (and perhaps I missed them in the book...?) but this could've easily been 4.5:
- Titan's age was hella confusing. So Poet is 30, and she said he's maybe 10-15

What started out as an MC book with a kickass heroine, ended as an MC book with a kickass heroine! I dislike when the heroine starts as one thing and has a complete personality change in the book. Poet was unapologetically strong and ruthless but allowed herself to be slightly vulnerable with Titan. Titan for his part accepted her for who she was. It wasn't hearts and flowers but rather, "I could fall in love with you" how sweet 🙃 ...more
Poet & Titan are right up there with classic love interests for me. Not my usual genre of romance reading, after meeting the author I wanted to give this a try. I'm so glad I didn't push it to the side. It's all about a strong woman MC president and her alpha male. I call him hers, because that's what she does. This story was all about good for me. ...more

A different twist on the typical biker book, Poet has a female MC president who falls for the president of a rival club. Forget that this is unrealistic - that's why we read fiction, right? Poet is tough and smart, Titan is terrific - but the plot was just a little too unrealistic at the end of the day. Instalove, rival gangs, Braeden (and all that he entails) - there was just a little more there than I could reasonably suspend my disbelief on. ...more

SO MUCH GOODNESS! This book was a breath of fresh air from my recent reads. Sometimes you just need one of those novels that grabs your right from that first line. This is one of them.

This was a girl who had her stuff together and knew how to handle a situation. I was hooked.

If I could rate this book 10 stars I would!! I'm not a huge MC book fan, but I have enjoyed reading some of Juli's other books before, so I definitely wanted to give POET a try. I am so glad I did!!! Poet is the female President of Hells Redemption motorcycle club and she doesn't take crap from anybody. She was voted in by the men of HR and she definitely has their respect. At a club party she is jumped and is in tough shape. Because she's tough as nails, she doesn't want her men to see her like ...more

I finished this book in one day. Any avid reader knows this is the highest compliment. If you are a romance novel fan, read this book. You will not be disappointed.

Now, for the details...

If you're a fan of Sons of Anarchy, you will appreciate this book even more, although this is a romance, so the focus is on the two love interests. Don't expect the all-out cringe-worthy grittiness of the TV show. There's plenty of gritty, just not the same prison-rape shock value (which I consider a GOOD thing

I am a big fan of MC books and I can honestly say that this was a story well worth reading. It was just so different to anything else that I have read lately, also it was well written, the story flowed nicely and it kept moving along and not stagnating. There were some great hot sex scenes but they didn't overpower the rest of what was going on and there was not just the super hot fantastic alpha male lead but also a super hot fantastic alpha female lead.

I love to read but weak females or damsels in distress are so popular and cliche. This book definitely isn't that book.
Poet is a tough female, she is the only female president of a motorcycle club. Raised in the club and voted as president after the death of her father Poet isn't looking for love and definitely isn't looking for a biker. When she's viciously attacked it's her rival that is there to help her.
Titan is all alpha, but is he strong enough to stand with and against this fiery alpha

Juli Valenti never lets me down. She continually delivers compelling stories that break the mold and suck you in as a reader. Juli does it again in her latest novel Poet. This was the first motorcycle club book I have read, but I throughly enjoyed it!

Where do I even begin? This story delivered on so many levels. There was action, romance, suspense, mystery, more action, love, empowerment, humor - the list goes on and on! The main character, Poet, is the foremost female president of a motorcycle

An Excellent MC Story With a Twist!

In real life, women ride; there are all female MCs; not sure if there is or has ever been a female president of an existing MC full of alpha males. The possibility of Poet really being Pres is doable based on the character's history within the MC and how she has handled herself all these years. This was a very good story with an interesting romance between the two presidents of rival, though not enemy, clubs. I liked Titan very much! Looking forward to the next

I picked up this book at the Coastal Magic Convention. I was very sceptical about getting another MC book. Especially one with a female president. But after talking to the author, I decided to give it a try. I am happy to say, I am glad I did. I found it to be well written. Not the typical MC book that I have read so many of. I loved the blend of toughness and sensitivity of the characters. I couldn't put it down. I look forward to reading the next one in the series. ...more

Love poet and titan

Love these two. Such strong leads. But by the end they worked well together. Can't wait to read more. Poet was a strong woman. She did let herself go a little but she sure did keep them big bad boys in line.

MC book with a unique twist

Poet is one tough lady. I can't even imagine how she managed with so many injuries. Titan, rival MC President, loses someone important to him and yet gains another. The banter between Poet and Titan are very funny. They also have some steamy scenes.
