Ellen is the daughter of a deceased wolves’ member. The club still keeps a tight eye on the pulse of all that surrounds her, so when she has a bad “final” separation up from her bootie call with one of the club member Noah, things are about to get a little weird.
Noah doesn’t want to acknowledge Ellen has his property but he also doesn’t want her to have anyone else in her life and Ellen is ...more
Like your Biker/MC stories on the light side? Well look no farther than this series. For me initially it took a while to get used to PG rated bikers. Sure they mean business and they give good 'business' but they are on the lighter side. They are sweet and they are protective. However, as a lover of a rough alpha male I am left a bit wanting more.
Ellen is a child of an MC world, she is a daughter of fallen club member and with her father's death she loses her desire to sing. She is very tale...more
Unruly is the second book in the Knights in Black Leather Series. However, it can be read as a standalone or out of order because the timeline in both books one and two run concurrently. I enjoyed Unruly. I liked the main characters, Ellen "Ellie" Gillham and Alejandro "Alamo" Diaz. Ellie was a strong, sassy, brave, outspoken, and genuine woman. She was a little rough around the edges and very blunt due to her upbringing in the Southern Wolves MC Club culture. I liked her, as I got to know her i ...more
Do you love MC's? Looking for a good book/series to start and can't figure out where? Then I recommend you pick up the Knights of Black Leather series!
Although this is the second book in the series, the first half actually reads parallel to the first one, Undaunted, so it can be read as a standalone. I do however, recommend reading the Undaunted first just so you have a feel of the secondary characters present in both.
Honestly aft ...more
I thought this was a NA romance and zero romance has happened yet. I can't imagine rating this higher than 3 stars so I'm giving up. I feel like I've wasted my time b/c it's only been a lot of Ellie talking about herself and what she wants. It's also been a lot of her sharing cute little stories about MC clubs and their dynamics. I mean, it was clever how they snuck a gun into a hospital but still.
Meh... Sorry, I give up...
Unruly is book 2 in the Knights in Black Leather series by Ronnie Douglas, aka Melissa Marr.
This one didn't pull me in as much as Undaunted did.
This is Ellen's story. We know from the first book, that her and Noah Dash had a thing.
We find out that they were F. Friends. The book begins with Ellen not happy with their secretive non relationship. Her feelings are shot and she's tired of not having something real. It's a sh*t situation that I think a lot of women can relate to from experie ...more
3.5 MC Lite stars!

Sometimes I think I'm a bit of a masochist when it comes to reading series. I didn't love Undaunted but for some reason I signed up to read this book. I guess I was invested enough to continue. Now that I read it I'm glad I carried forward, as I was pleasantly surprised with this story. Maybe it was because I had no expectations or maybe because it was a good story.
Alamo is now in

When the daughter of one of the Southern Wolves gets a flat in the middle of a thunderstorm, there’s only one thing to do—strip down to her underwear and get a little muddy. But when Alamo, the sexy biker shows up to rescue Ellen yet again, things are bound to get a whole lot dirtier.
Between the trouble he left behind and club rules, Alamo knows he needs to stay clear of Ellen. He’s not look ...more

Now I haven't read the first book in this series so when this book starts out it seems parallel to the first one. Ellen is attending college and is the daughter of a deceased southern wolves member. She just ends her on again off again relationship with Noah and Alamo comes to pick her up and take her wherever she wants.

I don't like to give much away, but I'll let you in on a little secret.
This story had a lot of sassy, curvy women attitude with a side of tall, muscular, protective men. I do love me some MC stories with men that know how to treat a w ...more
Quick & Dirty: A sexy romance that sadly had way too much drama and an annoying MC. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but this one was a struggle for me!
Opening Sentence: Alamo stood in the middle of a sea of boxes that filled his new house.
Ellen has spent years waiting for Noah Dash to wake up and admit that he wants more than a causal relationship. But Ellen is finally done waiting and she realizes that it is time to move on. She dese ...more
Sexual Content: Subtle
Language (Profanity/Slang) Content: Mild
Violent Content: Minimal
Ellen is tired of accepting the crumbs of a relationship Noah keeps offering. He wants her in his bed—when he’s not seeing someone else—but he will never breathe a word of a ‘relationship’ between them to anyone else. He pretends it’s a secret and nobody knows—so does Ellie. Until, after six years, she’s had enough. Enough waiting for Noah to make their relationship official. Enough of being the girl ...more
I really loved the relationship between Ellie and Alamo. When I read Undaunted I really expected the couple in this book to be Dash and Ellie so I got a little pouty and put off reading the book. But I’m really glad that I read it and I read it pretty much non-stop until I was finished. My only issued with these two books, and books like these in general, is that if you’re going to write a book with a believable motorcycle club then there needs to be mention o ...more
Unruly is book #2 in Ronnie Douglas's Knights in Black Leather series. I have found myself loving biker books lately but was pleasantly surprised when I started reading this book. Unlike most biker (MC) books I have been reading, this one was packed with drugs, alcohol and sex. While I don't find those factors disturbing in a book it was refreshing to see a biker book with a different spin on the biker world. Sure there was some "light" sex scenes and references to a criminal lifestyl ...more
**This ARC was provided by the publisher for an honest review.
Nothing is more noteable then when one of your favorite authors crosses her usual genre and pens something totally unlike her other books. Her writing style versitle but her voice can still be heard.
In this novel, wolves are not from fairy tales and folk lore. They are actually a motorcycle gang from all over but this one in particular is tucked in the south. I found myself totally engrossed in the story even reading the converations ...more

Ellen is first shown to us in book one as the main characters’ best friend. We learn a lot about Ellen in this book that we didn’t know before about her. Unruly happens more or less while Undaunted the first book was going on. Ellen has been doing a “friends-with-benefits” thing with Noah for a long time. She wants a real relationship but Noah doesn’t want to be in a real relationship with h ...more
