Rebecca McNutt
A funny and fast-paced mystery novel with a nun as the unlikely heroine, A Nun Walks into a Bar dissolves the common misconceptions about nuns in pop culture, but also brings some lighthearted romance and thriller content into the mix.

The story is getting ridiculous for sometime now but I thought it will return to be like the first 25% which I like, well it wasn't. I couldn't read a story like this.

The author wrote about human trafficking story but she write it lightly, is look like not a big problem, which is really? Especially when one of the victims is the hero's sister, she had been raped for months and I didn't see she getting any help to face that awful time!

And there is no character development regarding the

The title... I was smiling and intrigued from the first time I spotted the title. And *snort* its the NUN-rated edition.

I'm already familiar with the author's earlier Dogs of Fire MC series so I was curious about this spin-off story going on in the Dogs of Fire world. New readers can easily pick this one up without having read the older ongoing series without trouble since this pulls in new lead characters and a parallel story line.

I found this a light story with some heartwarming and thoughtful

Llevo varios días a trompicones con este libro y a estas alturas sé que no lo voy a terminar…No es que esté mal, es que, simplemente, no es de mi agrado.
No he conseguido conectar con los personajes, ni siquiera con los secundarios y la trama tampoco me ha parecido interesante.
Lo único que me ha gustado del libro ha sido el inicio… no sabía muy bien cómo iba a convencerme la autora de que una monja podía ser la protagonista de una novela romántica y me ha sorprendido gratamente. Un comienzo estel

This was a fun read, about a young former nun's adjustment to 'regular' life, with a romantic interest quickly coming into the picture. The strange/strained interactions between the H/h - mainly due to miscues from the heroine Sadie, with her observations and snark, and the hero Ryder's overprotectiveness - made for some entertaining reading.
Even with the dark undercurrent running throughout, the story was comical in nature.

I have been dying to read this book since the hints and teasers started appearing on Facebook. I can’t believe how lucky I was to get an Arc before release day. And all I had to do was write an honest review—oh yeah!!! sign me up.
I might have let out a squeal when I opened the ebook. The squealing didn’t stop at page one. I laughed. I giggled. I rolled on the floor laughing. The title, A Nun Walks Into a Bar, hinted at the story being funny, but it was downright hilarious. I highlighted so ma

3.5 Stars rounded up. I enjoyed this story for the most part. The themes of sex trafficking gave it a serious side, but the author did a good job of incorporating that while keeping romance and humor in the book. The only thing I didn't enjoy was that it jumps from the middle of the climax into an epilogue. It's very jarring. I liked the characters. I'm not a real biker fan, but I didn't feel like it was an overwhelming part of the book. I'm interested in the other books in the series to watch t ...more
Romance Between The Sheets
I just want to say this was a simply fantastic story, the title has you scratching your head but within the first few chapters I knew I was in for an amazing romantic journey.

Ryder - well what an alpha man, he knew what he wanted and went for it - he is protective and such a gentleman - surprising considering his upbringing and what stamina he has to stand by Sadie and her inner beliefs.

Sadie steals the show, is stunning, stubborn and simply sensuous when released into the real world. We are giv

A Nun Walks into a Bar is a romantic comedy, a crime investigation, and a suspenseful thriller all in one. If you like suspense and mysteries, then this is the perfect book for you! Note: The book DOES delve into the world of human trafficking, so it may contain triggers for some readers.

The characters were well developed and mostly likable. Ryder is a successful businessman who owns several bars. Sadie (aka Sister Abigail Eunice) is a teacher and former nun in training. Fate throws them togethe

It started really good, was disappointing after the first few chapters. The story had no depth, the chemistry between the characters lacked almost completely and the insta-love was totally rushed. Just OK.

I have to start by saying in my defense, I thought this book was going to be funnier than this. Scratch that, I thought it was going to be funny. Period. But I kept reading and I honestly don't know why I kept reading. I guess I was hoping that Sadie would get a brain in her head. She was so stupidly naive about everything. It's like she decided to fall in love with the first guy to give her any type of attention. Ryder was absolutely horrible! I kind of wanted to make a drinking game out of eve ...more

Pretty sure I bought this for the punny title - the chronic overuse of the words 'babe', 'baby' and 'love' started to grate as did the male main characters constant need to be in control of everything (a rough childhood does not mean it's okay to have a girl followed when she's out with friends - just to see if she's "ok")
Grandma Mush
Not sure what to think about this book. It was somehow unsatifying but maybe if I were young I would feel differently. It definitely dealt with some different stuff...the very wrong side of society contrasted with the religious, for example. But the romance felt off and the criminal stuff either forced or too realistic. Not sure if I'd bother with another from the series tho I read the teaser.

While it started out somewhat promising, it fairly quickly devolved into circular repetition.

Implausibly, Sadie and Ryder- the conventional opposites- attract so immediately that they are emotionally intertwined immediately- and this does not change. Their periodic spats do not seem serious, especially since they spat over the exact same things over and over again until it is tedious. And then do it some more.

Sadie is very annoying. When she gets involved with Ryder, she gets hooked into his wor

oh my gosh! it was awesome! amazing! DEEP! hilarious, so sweet! thrilling! exciting and just down right wonderful! not your average romance for sure! a new spin of good-guy biker bad ass meets clueless romantic!
Ryder is such a protective, sweet, short-fused bear! (but full of honey!) yes...He was a sweetheart, but a bad ass! Sadie was great!!! hilarious all around and you never knew what she was going to say or do next!

I got a copy of A Nun Walks Into A Bar from the author in exchange for an honest review! I absolutely loved it! Its not your typical story between Sadie and Ryder!! I love how Ryder is with Sadie with her being an ex-nun and never living outside the convent. But Sadie's learning curve is great and shes a quick study!! I think Tracey Jane Jackson is a freaking genuis and she is truly amazing!! Another job well done!!

Tracey did an amazing job with this story! A Nun Walks Into A Bar is sweet and funny and sexy as hell! Sadie was an endearing character that I connected with right away. Ryder was the perfect blend of big jerk and supportive alpha. I loved him. There are no slow moments and I loved watching Sadie and Ryder's relationship grow throughout it. One of my top favourite reads of this year.

This is my first book by Tracey Jane Jackson/Piper Davenport and it was witty, charming and just downright BRILLIANT! I really enjoyed the concept of an Ex-Nun trying to find herself in a whole new world. Writing style had me hooked from the first chapter and the characters had me charmed and I couldn't put the book down to see where Ryder and Sadie's story went.

Fully developed characters and dual POV, gives you an insight to Ryder and Sadie's emotions, feelings and thoughts which only adds to

This was the first book I read by Piper Davenport/Tracey Jane Jackson. I really enjoyed it but I do prefer the Dogs of Fire series. When Ryder first meets Sadie she is Sister Abigail Eunice. She has been in the abbey since she was 8 when her parents were killed in an accident. Her only living family is the Mother at the abbey, her auntie. Ryder is searching for his missing sister and he grew up in an MC, he is estranged from his parents and left the MC before becoming a member. There is a bit of ...more

I'll admit that I wasn't quite sure what to make of the title of this book, but I bought it because I just love Tracery Jane Jackson. It did not disappoint! It was really interesting to read about Sadie transitioning from a nun (the only life she has ever known but one she did not quite fit into) to the regular world. She is definitely a different kind of heroine -- smart, funny, naive, but not afraid to stand up for herself. She and Ryder definitely fit each other well. I loved Ryder's protect ...more

This book was an ok read. I did find myself wanting to read it to the end to find out what happened. The characters were interesting and charming to a degree. The only downsides I found were it ended rather abruptly or rather the ending wound down rather quickly. It seemed the last 15% of this book was samples of two other books by this author. Occasionally it also felt like the author forgot what character she was writing the point of view from, for example, when she was writing from Ryder's po ...more

Okay - total guilty pleasure reading. Thought this would be more of a mystery kind of novel - and it was, kind of, but more of a straight up romance novel (total, big strong man to the rescue stuff). The characters are not deep, not a lot of surprises, but the story itself is fun, and sometimes, you just want to put your brain on hold and enjoy some light reading. Not for kids - major sex scenes, language, some violence. more of an action story than mystery; and the action does keep going. This ...more

Cute story - I loved the interaction between Sadie and Ryder, who are polar opposites. I must admit, however, the constant “baby” and “baby girl” talk put me on edge after a while. The MC and human trafficking storylines caught me completely off guard, but in a good way. One thing really distracted from the story, however, and that was during Ryder’s portions of the story where the tense would change mid-sentence. It’s as if Ryder’s character was originally written in third person, then changed ...more

An excellent sizzling update.

*I was given this edition free as I'd read the original written by Tracey Jane Jackson and left a review*

I love all of Tracey's books. They hint at the passion running between the couples that get together, leaving the rest up to your imagination. You don't need your imagination with this edition of A Nun. . . The passion between Sadie and Ryder explodes in print and I think it makes for a better story; seeing the chemistry in action, so to speak.

It was a fun read… something different that is for sure.
Most of story is narrated in the first person by the lead characters Sadie and Ryder... there were some edits that got missed.. dealing with the use of correct pronouns when referring to oneself in the first person. As I was not particularly interested in the sex scenes… I just skimmed past those scenes.

I won't say much because this isn't really my preferred genre to begin with. Picked it because the description sounded interesting. I did finish the book, but only because I finish every book every time. I didn't like the "powerless and willing to forgive everything because he's hot" message, and the story twists got increasingly ridiculous as the story continued. Major issues treated lightly sealed the book's fate in my mind.
MaryLennox
3.5 total. 4.0 for the first 75% of the book.

I've got this author's flavor now, and I'm seeing the trend. Nothing wrong with a sweet hero but he's (b/c they're all alike) beginning to bug me with the milquetoast behavior. And why on earth do all the heroines get obsessed with wedding dresses and giant diamond rings at the end?

Either way, I did enjoy this one more than the other novels - it was better paced and fleshed out. Just really beginning to dislike the above.
Petrina
Funny

I give three stars because parts of this was pretty funny. I also really liked Reece. He was not a main character, but I still liked him. I didn't rate higher because as the story progressed it started to become cheesy. The story line was very solid, but the heroine was annoying at times and the hero was this weird mix of mushy creepiness. I won't spoil the read because it really was decent just a bit too syrupy sweet for my taste.

Page turner.

Could not put this down, from the first page to last. Great read full fun fear and love. Rude and Sadie's chemistry was brilliant. The love he show his even when he wanted to kill her for the choices she where brilliantly written into the story. Also the fear for Sadie when she was kidnapped by hi sperm diner ( the name he gave his vile Father). This is a story has it all action, love and fun.
