My name is Phoebe Rendon. Growing up as the only girl surrounded by the Sinful Souls MC community has never been easy. Outside of the club, I had no life because my brother and his two psycho best friends kept tabs on me. My only out was racing at Point Hellers, the largest and steepest drift mountain in Westbeach, California. Cars were my life, and eight years later, that ...more

A different type of second chance.

The first half of this story is told in past and present and from dual POV but mainly from the h Phoebe/Speedy. This got a little hectic and confusing as it seemed to bounce around a bit. I did not mind though as I am a massive fan of Amos The Devils Own MC series, I really enjoyed seeing different sides to the characters from that series. Phoebes brother is a high up member of the sinful souls MC, she was bought up in the club life with her d

I swear with every new book Amo releases I'm blown away by how much more I like the current book. They keep getting better and better. I was hooked from start to finish, unfortunately I got crazy busy so I waited to write my review in order to give the book justice.

This is the spin off series of Sinful Souls MC. You do not need to read the series in order to read this one, but it can help. Not only is the MC series good but it gives you an understanding when side

Phoebe Rendon is a sassy, full of life sister to a member of the Sinful Souls Biker club. She has grown up her whole life with bad boys and tough men, so she knows how to stand her ground. She is strong and I love that about her, but when it comes to a broody and confident rockstar by the name of Ryder Oakley, Phoebe can't keep her focus.

I am a huge fan of Amo Jones and everything I have read of hers so far has blown me away and that was no different with this book. Phoebe grabbed my attention when I first read about her in One Hundred and Thirty-Six Scars, and we only get a few glimpses of her but I couldn't wait to read more of her story. I knew Ryder and Ryker would be pretty awesome characters and I knew I would have a love-hate relationship with these hot rockstars!

So many of my questions from my first read of Phoebe to my

This just wasn't my cuppa. It started out decent, but ended up being too messy. There was so much going on... the MC biker family, rocker boyfriend, kidnapping and I kind of lost interest after a while.

Her books always hit the mark!
They tick every box!
They fucking rock!

The characters are perfect and scarred and fucked up and I am completely in love with them all!

The writing was choppy in several areas, but over all, I found the story just fine. Ryder though. Huh, I LOVED Phoebe but Ryder was a little baby at times. His insecurities and reasoning for leaving Phoebe was a bit weak. Not to mention, he had major mood swings in the beginning areas. Kind of gave me whiplash.

I really look forward to more from this series. It was very interesting and hope that ESPECIALLY Meadow (+Beast?) and even Rellik will get their own stories as well! Going to jump into Ryk

This is my first book by author Amo Jones and my goodness she did not disappoint me at all. Phoebe Rendon has a family unlike most of us. They are in the Sinful Souls MC club. And her brother loves her without a doubt and wants to protect her with his life. But he can also maybe be a little over protective. Phoebe loves all things fast and she wants nothing more than to live her life driving fast cars but that takes money so she takes a job that she really doesn't like too much in order to fulfi ...more

I got an advanced copy of this book for an honest review and OMG I freaking loved it!!! I'm so glad i was gifted one. When I started reading this book I could not put it down.

I seriously got a major girl crush on Phoebe. Shes a character who you just want to fall in love with. Being the MC princess and a race car driver... hmm i'm fantasizing about a girl now bahaha... Shes sassy, crude, sexy and she gives as well as she takes. Shes got a set of brass balls if i ever seen them. Taking a job in

I am always thrilled when I have the opportunity to read a new author. Whether a debut or previous released selection. I was offered this ARC and I am so glad. A 5 star rating isn't even close to emphasizing its qualities \magnitude.
Don't let the label spin off deter from reading. I had no problems reading as a standalone start to a new series. But !!!! I do know after completing this one I will definitely be reading any other work.
So many positives. Excellent storytelling- Unique interesting

I absolutely fell head over heart in girl crush with Phoebe. She's spectacular. Growing up as an MC princess and having a passion for driving fast cars has shaped her into a sassy, smart, and sexy gal. She takes a job in fashion until the time she can get her circuit up and running. A circuit that will bring in women drivers like herself and the people who want to see them drive. Before she can get to it, she has to make it through the tour from hell. Not only is her charge hard to handle, but s ...more

Gifted a copy for review.
I am definitely starting my new year off with a bang. This book is awesome. Phoebe is an exceptional character. She has grown up in the MC lifestyle. She knows what they do even though she is sheltered from it yet she is a loving beautiful soul. She is a racer at heart even though her current job is just a place holder till her circuit is complete. Her last assignment brings her face to face with the rock star who broke her heart.

Wow this book was excellent I could not put it down. Phoebe is sass personified. She is a loud girl who does not back down as you would expect being the MC princess. She loves living on the edge racing fast cars and her family is her number 1 priority. Ryder is the lead singer in a band along with his twin brother Ryker. They had a brief fling 2 years ago and he left without a goodbye shattering her heart. A new job opens for Phoebe and guess who is there aha Ryder. Do they or don't they and sho ...more

Thanks Amo for providing this escape for me! (&the rest of the reading world)
Ryker & Phoebe's connection is priceless!! Phoebe's "HEA" swooning!! I am intrigued to learn more about Meadow. Love how you sprung Beast, Killer, oops my bad Rellik, Abby in there.... Looking forward to the upcoming adventure, my personal escapes!!

First let me say that I had to 'google' cane corso cause I have never seen one and was curious. This story is about Phoebe and Ryder, characters that you see in the other books. It is their story. I did like it, was wanting to read how they came about.
MC's, racing and a rock star in a band called Twisted Transistor (love me some Korn)......I'm totally in!

This is my first book by Amo I've read... OMG why have I not read any books by this amazing author before now??? have I been living under a rock (or in a book) ???

I freaking LOVED this book, I absolutely devoured it

Losing Traction is a kind of spin-off series I believe, from Amo's Sinful Souls MC series.... which I totally need to read now that I have met most of the characters in this book that star in the Sinful series

Losing Traction is Phoebe's book....
she is the princess of the Sinful Souls

This is my 2nd Amo book and Ive really enjoyed them and looking forward to more. I feel the writing is very simple and that is the .5 star I took off. It was NOT elementary or anything, just wast OMG.
Phoebe is a wonderful heroine. I really enjoy her attitude, and it is maintained throughout the whole book, and doesnt waiver. So often a heroine is strong until something happens. Not Phoebe, even in her darkest times she remains strong.
Ryder (and Ryker even ;) ) is wonderful! He doesnt

From Race cars to rock stars with a little bit of MC club in between.

The cover and synopsis sold me on this book straight away. This story was clearly created to be a little different: a female racing driver, brought up in a MC club who falls in love with a rock star. A dream scenario you may think!

I hadn't read the Sinful Souls MC series before starting Losing Traction and I felt that this made the story overly confusing. As a result, I wasn’t able to fully connect with the characters or be abl

Awesome story, absolutely loved it...

Losing Traction by Amo Jones is book one in the Westbeach series of books and it does not disappoint.

Phoebe Rendon is the heroine of the story. A sassy, fierce and strong-willed woman who comes from a very interesting and protected MC background. Phoebe has a love for cars, all types of cars, as long as they go fast and hard. Her life has been difficult and challenging, but she works hard and is on her way to fulfilling her dreams.

NO SPOILERS! Just a review on my thoughts of "Losing Traction (Westbeach, #1)"

This book is by far thee best book (I've said this about all 4 lol). Every single book that Amo teases me with makes me that impatient that I want to throw a tanty and throw all of my toys out the cot because I know exactly how long before I have to wait for the next one.

Really though this book is just that good! It was nothing like I was expecting at all and I could not for the life of me put it down and devoured it

Omg I absolutely loved this book. I didn't put it down once I picked it up. It was do very, very hot. Woah.

Phoebe grew the life of an MC, but was sheltered from most of it thanks to her family. Her dad was the love of her life. Her brother and his friends, that were just like brothers, scared everyone away from her so a love life was hard. If anyone broke her heart they were in deep sh*t.

She met Ryker, lead singer of Twisted Transistor, when out with her best
