What a ride! This book was a perfect mix of love, danger, badass bikers and dark drug lords! I enjoyed every minute of it.
Elena is taking care of her sick father. She despises the man, she doesn't love him, but being close to him provides a reprieve from the dangerous man she is engaged to. Carlos Redmond is a cruel man and he is holding Elena's life in the palm of his hand.

5 Stars!

Shut the front door! Holy crap.... this book was AMAZING! It was nothing like I expected it to be and had me glued to the pages from the first word. I love Max Henry and her words. She has a magical way in her writing where she chews you up and spits you out but in such a good way.

I am not a huge MC fan. I pick and choose here and there which ones I will read and I am sooooo glad I did not pass on this book. Wow, from the first chapter, first page, first line, first word... I was hooked.

Complete waste of time. Literally NOTHING that is detailed in the synopsis happened in this book. It describes everything that happens before the synopsis then ends on a cliffhanger. Which totally sucks.
This book had potential but it was all over the place with characters behaving in ways that weren't consistent with who they are purported to be. Also far too much telling and not enough showing.
No character development, nothing to make you like the characters, and very little plot development. I

Unrequited captured me with its gorgeous cover. I wasn’t familiar with the author; Max Henry and I obviously had not read anything she has previously written. So with no expectations or any preconceived notions, I dived into Unrequited and didn’t come up for a breath of air until the very last page. And then, I would like to say there was a sigh of relief – but it was more like a string of expletives because it ends on a cliff-hanger and dammit, if I do not need the rest of this story like I nee ...more

Unrequited, a story that had me hoping and wishing for the impossible. Characters without fear surround the heroine Elena, a victim of circumstance simply by being born into a family who lived in a country where the Cartels ruled. An agreement to better her life has her firmly in the grip of Carlos, a ruthless cartel boss. A deal she is dreading coming to fruition, delaying the inevitable by being given leave to tend to her dying father.

As I started reading, I realized something.
This book starts sometime in the PAST. Because King isn't the MC President, which we know he is now.
But more than that, we also know that King is NOT living out his HEA with the woman he loves at the end of the Butcher Boys series.
So how many books do we have to read in THIS series to catch up to the present? And then how long until he DOES get his HEA, if he even does??
I'm only on page 3 and already worried

I can't remember the last time I read a book in this genre that was THIS intense, scary, intriguing, and heartbreakingly beautiful as this story is.

I mean WOW! And just imagine how ticked I was with the way the cliffy landed. But I was just as equally giddy about the fact that I had a "Free Lending Book" due at Kindle. So King & Elena's conclusion is about to be devoured by yours truly. ;)

Get this book people while it is still free. You will not regret this one.

Rating higher than I would because I really liked the goodness of H. He is in seedy club but is close with his parents, no messed up past. Good guy. h, not so much. She did a 180 and flipped because H would save her from husband when she had just argued why she had to stay with him.

I really enjoyed this tale of twisted life, love, death and life.

This story has a bit of everything, being a motorcycle gang story it has death, arguments, fights, intrigue and woven between club life, a romance that shouldn't be.
"King" is extremely mature for someone of his age, who has joined the club life, not out of any honor, or because he grew up in it, but because he wanted to. He comes from a good family who support him, and are close to him.
Elena on the other hand, has had a reasonably

The title for Elena and King’s story is an interesting one because it’s not that they don’t return one another’s feelings of love; it’s just that their situation does not allow them to be together, leaving them longing for each other and dealing with their separation the only way they can, which is not healthy or safe, but they’re willing to risk it because they can’t deny that they want to be together regardless of the obstacles in their way.

There's a new Jax Teller in town! Well, not Jax, but close enough. In the first book of the Fallen Aces MC series we are introduced to King and the rest of the Aces.

King is a young man prospecting for the motorcycle club. He was brought up on a farm, worked as a carpenter's apprentice, but realized he wanted something different. After a run in with one of the members of the MC, King decided that was the different he was after.

On the way home from a run, King sees the beautiful Elena. It was a

This is my first Max Henry book and will not be last, especially now...


"I like my own company-it doesn't complain, confuse me, or expect things I can't deliver."

He is not your typical MC boy; he is shy around the ladies, quietly hangs out in the background, and has manners. He is loyal to his club, he is always thinking and planning, he wants to make something of himself within the confines of his club. By chance he meets this girl and his life is about to get a little more complicated.

I love Max Henry and this new series doesn’t fall short! The cover is absolutely beautiful. I love the orange – the cover alone draws you in ready to flip the pages and dig in. Be ready for a cliffy … and it’s a big one …

King and Elena – remember them? YUP this is their story. These two characters were thrown and I mean thrown together like a train running into a wall. You don’t need to read the events that go down in the from the previous series they appeared in so y

I have been in love with King since I first met him in Max's Butcher Boys series. I always knew that there was more to his story and I jumped on board to learn more about him. King came from great parents, worked as a carpenter apprentice but always felt as if something was missing. He has a run in with a member of the Fallen Aces and sees that joining the brotherhood is that something. While out on a run he's injured and stops to get first aid

YES YES YES YES .... I have found a new MC read that is #fridiculously phenomenal!!

Jesus Christ on a cracker, this was seriously gritty and suspenseful and eye-popping stunning. I was glued to my kindle the entire time I read this. I didn't even want to take a break. I wasn't too sure from the blurb whether I would really be on board with King. I mean he didabandon his love and child for the club, so I wasn't too sure that he would be able to win me over. Clearly I was wrong.

this is the first time I read something from this author. there's a cliffhanger. it was an OK read for me. the story is about elena and King.

they met when king was doing a run for his MC when everything went wrong and he got hurt. after that short meeting king went back to that small town 6 hours away from where he's from. wow if that is not dedication i don't know what is.

so they meet every week in the coffee shop. they learned stuff about each other like elena is caring for her sick father,

I am definitely a Max fan and couldn't wait to read the first book in her new series.

King and Elena have this chemistry and connection that was beyond resisting, but it would bring about bad things for both. Elena finds him just as she is about to marry a despicable man. Problem is that King's MC is working for him. King isn't in a position to change that so he will leave her behind to live the nightmare. I really wanted to give the man a shake or two.

** DNF @ 37% **

I was sooooo excited to come across this book. Bikers? Check. Unexpected pregnancy? Sure. Hero abandons the heroine, only to realize his mistake? Just the right amount of angst for me. Unfortunately, and thanks to the awesome blurb, I got about 30% more into this book than I actually should have.


I hate to say it but there just wasn't anything that felt right. While I can accept instant lust, the hero seemed to think about love far too early for it to be believable. Secondly, while

Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review... This was my first book by Max Henry but I've clearly been hooked!? LOVED this book! Not your typical love story... with everything from MC bikers to Cuban drug lords and murder. A dark read, with a few scenes that were tough to read.. abuse, pain, loss... so much packed into this story. There is also a beautiful love story in there... King comes from a good place, educated and with a loving hard-working family. He and Elena clearly have an inte ...more

Fallen Ace’s is a club with some underlining issues, so when King finds the woman who he knows is the one; life just got a whole lot more complicated.
Elena just wants to make a better life for herself and her Mama, but what she thought was a new beginning has her wondering why she left home.
This is one hell of ride, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from Max.

They say if you love something let it go,
and if it’s yours, it will come back.
but what if that which you love

This book took me awhile to read. I read another book in the middle of this one because this one was one I could put down. There were so many pages of fluff, thoughts in the mind, descriptions, etc, I skipped a lot of pages just to find conversations and action. The story was good when you actually read about the characters. I will probably read the next book in the series but if it is anything like this one, it will be my last. The sex scenes were a little drawn out and boring so I even felt my ...more

More of a 3.5* for me It felt rather slow storyline but guess it got there in the end even though it’s a cliff hanger. Newly patched in and already taking on the president and a drug lord seems a little far fetched but hey I’m keen to read book 2 to see where it’s going. It’s written well just I struggled to find personality of either main characters.
