Jack “Bulldog” Parrish

Crazy: Mentally deranged, especially as manifested in a wild or aggressive way.

I was thirteen when I discovered the definition of the word I’d forever be labeled.

Some used it as a figure of speech but for me it was a scar I’d carry through life.

Or so I believed until I was diagnosed a manic depressive.

I’m the president of the Satan’s Knights Motorcycl

This sooooo wasn't what I was expecting, cause I haven't read anything by this author before. Janine Infante Bosco is refreshing, really enjoyed her style of writing! Uncontrollable Temptations had a real sense of brotherhood, dangerous elements and action you'd expect from one percenters.

Not only did the bikers separate the men from the boys, but they walk the walk and talked the talk. Its fucking awesome when you have the right balance in a book, everything you crave and a kick ass storyline

Jack "Bulldog" Parrish is the President of the Satan's Knights MC. He is a man who has lost a lot and he is dealing with manic depression. He has climbed to the top despite his condition and he is now a powerful man with brothers that are loyal to him.

We didn't need blood. We had loyalty. We had respect. We had the stuff that held people together when blood didn't.

When Jack tries to seek revenge for his brother's death, his life will collid

I love Janine Infante Bosco’s men and Jack ‘Bulldog’ Parrish stands head and shoulder above the rest in the Tempted Series. A violent man battling both manic depression and a devestating loss while shouldering the responsibility of the Satan’s Knights MC as it’s president he is the broken bad-boy alpha that fantasies are made of.

Reina is a shadow of the girl she once was. Battling her own set of physical and emotional scars, Jack is the last thing she expects and the one thing she needs. He brin

I knew Jack’s story wasn’t going to be for the faint of heart. I knew it was going to be gritty and I also knew I had to read it. I needed to know what made this intriguing man tick since he stood out so heavily in the last book even though it wasn’t about him.

And Janine delivered. Again.

"...I learned that surviving is worse than dying. It's hell in its purest form."

Uncontrollable Temptations is book 3 in the Tempted series by Author Janine Infante Bosco. It is an MC romance novel.

"It was unnerving the way he looked at me, those eyes of his seeing right through my armor down to the scars that marked my soul."

Jack and Reina both have an unrelenting darkness that is their lives. Jack is part of the Satan's Knights, which is a world that Reina so obviously knows little of. Reina is

President of Satan’s Knights, Jack “Bulldog” Parrish has never been normal, or so the world has believed and in many ways he has never sought to prove them wrong.
But when life pulls the rug out from under him and his life bottoms out, he is facing the fact that his misfortune may present an opportunity to those that would like to see him finished.
Jack has to fight to keep his enemies at bay and at times his struggle was far from easy but at others he truly was his own worst enemy and I

I have no friggin' clue...well I do, but that is neither here nor there. To say that I am back in the saddle again is an understatement.

Jack “Bulldog” Parrish learned at a young age he was different. Some labeled him crazy while others called him mentally unstable. Whatever word they used, they were right. However, as an adult the most tragic event that could occur in one’s life does and he loses everything. He is the president of the Satan’s Knights Motorcycle Club and he is feared by many and has enemies near and far who would love to have an opportunity to take him down.

"Give me your scars. Let me be the one who sets you free from them."

This may be one of my top favorite MC books! The minute that I started reading this, I was hooked and I couldn't put it down. The emotional pull that Jack had on me from the start was... ugh. no words! The pain that he was putting himself through and the guilt over what happened to his son, destroyed me. I absolutely LOVED Reina. You were able to see her demons, her pain, and the disgust that she feels within her

I knew going into this that Jack's story would be a heartbreaking one, but I wasn't prepared for how emotional I would get while reading it. Two lost and broken souls somehow found their way to each other in this incredible story of love, loss, and redemption. Jack and Reina were tied together by tragedy. They came together due to an undeniable chemistry, and developed a bond that no one and no circumstances could break.

Both Jack and Reina have been reeling after the death of Danny, who was Jack

What I Loved: I really loved the prologue because it sucked me in and my heart instantly broke for Jack and all he had lost. I had tears in my eyes about 2 minutes into the book and I love stories that can make me emotional. The fact that this story did that to me almost immediately was pretty impressive. Jack’s loss was so acute and on the surface I fell for him instantly and wanted him to find some sort of happy ending. I was delighted to see he found some sort of sunshine the minute he laid

Uncontrollable Temptations is raw, intense and realistic.
It's a book that made me feel every emotion, gave me chills, made me swoon and sigh countless times.

This is the first book I have read from this author, but it’s the third book in the Tempted Series. All of the books so far have been standalone novels, however to get a better picture of the overall story I suggest reading the others first as they do have recurring characters. I will certainly be going back and reading the previous books in this series, and anything else this author has written as this book was just amazing.

Uncontrollable Temptations is book #3 in the Tempted Series and the first book I have read by this author. I was gifted an ARC of the book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.

Ok so the blurb makes Bulldog sound like a complete nutter and I was sooooo looking forward to this love story with this unhinged guy. Is it weird that I’m disappointed that Bulldog was normal for 99% of the time?

Don’t get me wrong he had psycho mom

Ever since he showed up in the previous books in this series, I've been anticipating Jack's story. I can definitely say he was well worth the wait and this is by far my favorite book out of the three so far. I love reading tortured characters, and both of these had that surrounding them in spades. From beginning to end, the hits just kept coming, but through it all our characters stuck it out. It only served to make me fall for them even harder.

Jack's backstory darn near brought me to my knees.

One of the most difficult characters for an author to write, and write well, would have to be a character with either a little known disease process, or with a process with huge stereotypes. Very few will attempt these characters, and far fewer will actually nail the character. Now, add the largest moment of grief and guilt in that character's life, and have it be a direct result of said process.

Enter Janine Infante Bosco and President of Satan's Knights MC, Jack "Bulldog" Parrish.

Wow, Janine Infante Bosco really pulled out all the bikers with this story. An MC combined Mafia story with a plot that tempts you for more.

If you haven’t met Jack ‘Bulldog’ Parish, then I recommend you do. He is one wild character full of so many layers that you will grow to love.

Reina took a little while to grow on me, but when she came out of her shell, she was a woman to admire for her dedication to Jack.

Janine's honest and respectful approach to creating a character with manic depression (yet still bad ass and sexy) was phenomenal. Jack Parrish is an MC BBF to be reckoned with. And Reina is the friend you want on speed dial. Told in dual POV, Uncontrollable Temptations is a heartbreaking story of one man's demons the woman who wants to fight them.

Throughout the story the reader knows, without a doubt, that there will be an epic moment of revelation between the M/m and my anxiety was through the

Anyway, i digress...I couldn't get enough of this book. We are introduced to Jack and Reina.
