Tight Everly, Sergeant-at-Arms of The Black Vipers M.C.

In the world of The Black Vipers, sin runs free and I'm sin personified.

Given permission by the cut I wear, I take whatever the emptiness inside me desires, by any means necessary.

Unfortunately, the truth sin doesn’t want you to know–nothing is ever free. It takes payment in flesh and degradation.

Waw!! that's all I can say. And that ending, hmmm... it had me in shambles. Ms. Fredricks starts us off with a riveting and gut wrenchingly dark start to Reckless. Chapter one definitely epitomizes the name of the novel as well as setting the pace for a gripping storyline.

Living on the streets for numerous years. Hungry, malnourished, beaten and raped. Ben has nothing to lose when he steps into the Vipers presence. Looking for a way off the streets, he bargains for a chance to join the lethal MC

You are going to be hooked from the first chapter. You are going to devour it in one sitting that is for sure.

Reckless Fear has a brilliant storyline, full of secrets and events that will have you at the edge of your seat. You would think that because it is a MC book you are going to read the same thing as always, only sex and some alphas, do not get me wrong I love those things, and yes, it does have them, BUT the way the author developed the story is what make it

Wow... what a book! This was definitely a 5 star read for me that left me wanting more!! This is a hardcore MC book... nothing fluffy in here whatsoever!

It starts out pretty gritty and we learn exactly what kind of life Tight lived. He had it really tough when he was younger, but he is a survivor. The book flows so nicely with plenty of action and crisp writing. I was enjoying it so much that when I looked at how far I'd read (40% or so at that point) and I didn't know who the heroine was in th

Hot damn! I found a new MC Romance author to stalk! My fellow biker romance lovers, listen up. This is a series that you don't want to pass up. My clicker finger is already twitching, ready for another, and another.

This story will rip your heart out as you go back 10 years, to a young boy living on the streets fighting for survival. You will understand what caused his heart to become hardened and what fueled the blood lust that feeds his soul. You will see his hardness and hi

A bomb has exploded in my brain … what the hell did I just read; wait not read, devour in one sitting. Ben “Tight” Everly, Sergeant at Arms, that’s what … and the Black Vipers M.C. Good gawd. This is one where you don’t want to read “this is a work of fiction.” Hell no please make Tight Everly real. I don’t know who Robin Harper is either but the cover; yeah I need to give the lady a fist bump.

Holy hell. Something is seriously wrong with me. No matter how many times I read those tattooed bikers with a mouth that will drive my parents insane, I just CANNOT seem to EVER GET ENOUGH!! I think it's permanently embedded in my DNA to love and want something that I know might not be the best in real life (experiences have proven why I mainly stick with fictional bikers..)

With RECKLESS FEAR, we get a somewhat different MC story. I was so surprised to find that not lot of steamy romance scenes

Josie's Review

I am a sucker for MC reads and when an author throws in a dark theme into the mix, I am done for. Reckless Fear was nothing that I expected. I was not prepared for all the feelings I felt while read this book. The author did an amazing job with the plot and character development in this story.

The opening of Reckless Fear started out in the past and was intense, powerful and enticing. I could not put the book down after reading that one chapter. Reckless Fear is full of secrets and

Tight Everly, omg he's been through brutal life since young.
As Sergeant-at-Arms of the Black Vipers M.C. the brutality still going on around him,
but now he's the one who deliver it. Yups he's a badass and hot SOB.

Sasha Campbell, she's a strong damage woman, her past is so brutal
and it still hunting her and chasing her. What happened to her breaks my heart.

Can this two damage people survive together? Be each other salvation?
Or they'll be separated because two people from different world wasn't

Micki Fredericks has definitely done it again with giving her readers an incredible book to devour and I do mean devour. I was gifted an ARC of this book and read it in the same day because it is that good. I was traveling and that always seems to be a good time for me to read. When I arrived at my destination I still had about a third of the book to read so I simply gave my apologies to those there and retired to my bedroom to finish the book. It was that good.

Tight Everly is the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Black Vipers MC, and a hard man. He had to leave the love of his life, because he couldn't offer her anything, and now he lives with serious regrets. After getting shot but another MC, he's in the hospital when he finds her again, only now she's going by another name. Sasha has had a nightmare life.

I have to say that I've gotten a bit worn out by MC novels lately so I stopped reading them, but this one intrigued me so I picked it up. I am glad that I gave it a try.

The beginning of the book was quite dark, but I didn't think much of the rest was at all.

I really liked Tights character and Sasha too. I did feel like the fact that they were both so stuck on a one night stand from so long in the past was a bit too insta love for me though. Although Sasha had much more of a reason than

Do you like your MC books raw & gritty…with a side of romance thrown in the mix? Do you like them well-written with strong characters that will capture your heart? Then this one is for you. Great character development in this story lets you connect with the characters, loving them every step of the way.

To say I loved this book would be an understatement. This author knocked it out of the park with this one. You are going to get all of the feels that you expect from a great book. You will gasp, y

I was instantly drawn into Tight's world. The beginning starts when Ben was a lost teenager he couldn't handle being on the streets anymore. He had nothing to lose he reached out to the Black Viper's. He knew they would either kill him or help him. It jumps years into the future when Ben now Tight was a man. A man who is loyal to his club. The club that saved him and is now the most important thing in his life. I wasn't

I’m a huge MC romance fan and I have to say this one is different than any other that I’ve read. Tight Everly has had a rough past and when he was just 16 he set out to prove himself to the Black Vipers MC. Now 10 years later he’s earned his patch and a spot as Sergeant-at-Arms. Things go wrong in a bust and Tight ends up in the hospital and when he wakes up he realizes his night nurse is his first love Sasha. Sasha has had just

The very first chapter had me - hook, line and sinker. I have read my share of MC books and this is very high up on my list as one of the best. The entire book, from start to finish, is just phenomenal. Each character left me wanting to know more. More about them. More about how they got in to the Black Vipers. Just - more!!!

And Tight... whew. Being so rough and rugged, I loved that you also got to see his softer side. A side he only shows to Sasha. The emotion, the sorrow of their love affair,

Why oh why has it taken me so long to read anything from this author. This was a fantastic read that I inhaled in one sitting. I'll certainly be adding her other books to my wish list.

Tight and Sasha are the two main characters. They have both been through a nightmare childhood. My heart ached for them both. When fate brings Sasha back into his life he's shocked. She was the light in his life years ago and now she's so near him he can still feel the attraction.

Great story that will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout. Full of drama and twists and turns to keep you hooked. From the first chapter your giving a insight into Tights life 10 years before which helps with the storyline and connection to this particular character. Sasha also has a dark damaged past but is a strong character. Will these two be together or to two damaged people from different worlds never meant to be together in

This was short, dark and twisted tale where secrets and vengeance are the driving force behind a war.

The beginning of the tale though is about a young boy, tired of his life on the streets and desperate for an out. He finds this out in a motorcycle gang... "I'd stepped out of the shadows and into the sights of the worst type of predators." Not just any motorcycle gang, but one of the biggest and baddest around. His entry into this gang starts a series of events that no one expected, it also

This book will hook you from the first few pages!! I couldn't put it down. It starts you out in Ben's life 10 years prior and to say that chapter is cringe worthy is an understatement he didnt know if he would be walking out of the warehose with the Black Vipers in a body bag or on his own two fe
I'm not even sure I know where to begin with this review. From the moment we meet Tight, he's a force to be reckoned with. It was definitely unconventional how he ended up with The Black Vipers, and do that as a teenager and you're confronting not only the Road Captain, but also the President of said MC? That takes balls my friend.

Tight has made a name for himself over the 10 years he's been with The Black Vipers, and definitely made enemies, but there is still someone from his past haunting him

What a ride!!!

Tight Everly had a violent filled childhood that lead to a violent filled adult life. He convinced, the feared, Black Vipers MC to take him in when he was sixteen. All it took was bloodshed and an act of crazy violence. He knew he wouldn't survive much longer on the streets and he knew from that day all that would matter to him was his club and his mc family. He owed them his life. He has never been in a relationship. Club girls have served their purpose and they know the score. Th

The story starts in a dingy warehouse, where our Hero [Tight] is introduced - he's homeless, alone, and young.
While he's known fear his whole life, or what we're told about his life, he seems to be given a chance at improving his situation thanks to the Black Vipers!
Being an outlaw biker, in the middle of a war is a difficult place to be. Each club has their casualties but there seems to be no end in sight.

This is the second book I have read from Mrs. Fredricks. And to say I have been waiting for her next book is an understatement. But I have to say I'm so glad I waited and so glad I got the chance to review this book. I will say this about this book Mrs. Fredrick's sticks to her dark roots in this book. Also I will warn you I wouldn't necessarily call this a cliffhanger ending, ok it is kind of a cliffhanger.
