Spark in the Ashes is my first journey into the world of Nikki Groom, and I never wanted to leave! I'm going to try and break it down as simply as I can before I move on to all of my dramatic girly girl emotions. Sadie Foster is filled with the desire for revenge every waking hour of the day, so she's now putting it into action, one evil douche at a time. One night as she's taking care of business, she comes face to face with Ramsey Dalton, and her world is never the same. Ramsey is the VP of th ...more

Favorite Quotes:

The camaraderie and tight-knit feel of the Steel Souls brothers and their wives is intense. It’s unapologetic, violent at times, and pretty damn explosive, but it feels like a raucous version of The Waltons… Bound by soul not blood, and in some respects, it’s a more honest connection.

There’s nothing to say what’s happened here, or who did this, but it’s hanging in the air, like a bad smell that no one wants to admit to.

My Review:

HOLY HELL!!! Nikki's last name should be VROOOOM!

Steel Soul's Mc series revved my engines and I want more NOW!!!

Wow just wow!! Nikki gave us an amazing MC story.

You all know this is my fave genre, and Nikki knocked it out of the park!


Sadie Foster is a sad broken soul on the path of revenge.

She is a beautiful and bloodthirsty package as she seeks to right some wrongs in this world. It will ease her pain to make filthy soul less individuals pay the price for her pain. Never in a millio

Spark in the Ashes by Nikki Groom a sublime five-star read. This is the first book in the Steel Souls series, and wow what a first book, If I am honest I was getting a little done with the whole MC genre, this book has ignited a spark, that will not be put out. It brought a different side to the bikers, and it is a refreshing and honest view point, not the typical overused version we see most often.

Spark in the Ashes is a fantastic initiation for Nikki Groom into the dark and gritty world of MC contemporary romance. This book delivered in droves, as it held many elements that make a good book great including suspense, violence, sex and the best part... likeable (even though a little fucked up) characters.

From chapter one this book makes one hell of an opening impact with a young woman who has made a very conscious decision to walk the dangerous path of revenge. Her reasoning becomes very a

Wow, this was my first book by Nikki Groom and what an introduction it was. I just had to read this book when I saw this cover, talk about eye catching, this cover is amazing!! The blurb had me sitting in anticipation because whew it sounded like a doozy. One thing that I must say is that there should be a bit of a warning that this book does touch on some sensitive topics. This by no means impacted how I felt about this book, well I did think that Nikki did a great job with it I can say that.

This is the first book I have read from Nikki Groom and I can say I am impressed. This is a good MC read and I feel book two will be just as exciting. Click this one up -- MC again!

Our female lead is one sassy girl -- out for revenge she is not going to let anyone or anything get in her way. Revenge is what drives her. She is a angry broken soul. Lies and betrayal are all over these pages and woven into this storyline.

I love MC books, so I always get a mix of excited and nervous when I see a new one. Excited in case I love it, but nervous because what if I don't... I hadn't previously read anything by Nikki Groom so I new nothing of her writing style, but she definitely had me wanting to check out her other works after Spark In The Ashes.

The first chapter instantly draws you in. It's drama from the get go and it leaves you wanting more. Needing to know what happened to lead up to that point, and more importan

4.5* read.

Book 1 of 2 this isn't a standalone and so it does end on a cliffhanger, and a big one at that. I'm hopeing there isn't to long of a wait for book 2 as I don't know how long I can wait to find out what happens next.

The first thing I will say about this book is the cover is stunning. Straight away I would pick this book up just for the cover. Its unique, eyecatching, and would stand out on the shelf.

What an adrenaline rush!
This read was an emotional nail biting roller coaster ride. Fast paced, excellent writing I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next!
Well developed characters, I love anti heroines and Sadie aka Raven fit that bill! She was one badass brassy woman on a mission and she's out for revenge. When we're introduced to her, she's imparting her own brand of vigilante justice!
Who catches her in the act is the embodiment of alpha MC outlaw Ramsey.

Sadie is a lonely soul looking for revenge when circumstance throws her into the path of Ramsey the VP of Steel Souls MC. Not sure I want to say much more than this without spoiling too much but this was an intense, fast-paced, action-packed, thrill ride of a book.
A must read if you are a fan of MC stories. WARNING: This is book 1 of 2 so expect a cliffhanger. Oh, what a cliffhanger it was! Had me lo

It touched on some things I am not comfortable reading and I had to put the book down a few times but I am glad that I came back to it and look forward to seeing what happens next.

Spark in the Ashes great start to a new series Nikki Groom does not disappointed. This is a fast paced book with lots of action and passion.

The heel of her hand stops me in mid flow as it comes flying into my nose with a crack. “Get the fuck away from me you fucking psycho,” she screeches as she starts to kick fiercely at the driver’s window.

A darkly enigmatic and gripping contemporary romance...

Ok, so I'd never come across Nikki Groom - it's thanks to Claire and Wendy over at Bare Naked Words that I now have another brilliant writer to stalk. I mean follow. But essentially it's the same thing! Anyhow, I'm really taken aback by Spark in the Ashes, everyone knows I have a penchant for dark DARK romance and well, Nikki Groom has given me a hit of a very addictive and gripping duo here.

Book 1 in the Steel Souls series, this book is unrelated to any previous work by Nikki Groom.

Sadie Foster hides her rage well. Outwardly she lives a quiet almost solitary life, however look a little deeper and she is a volcano waiting to erupt. Unable to forget her past, she desires revenge and retribution. Little does she know the path it is to lead her down.

Sadie Foster is a girl on a mission. She wants to rid the world of men who rape young girls and seem to get away with it. When she kills Donny Carden one night she has no clue that she has been seen and that she has now put herself into more danger. When she ends up with a gun at her own head she realizes she could be in trouble.

Ramsey Dalton is part of the Reno Steel Souls MC and wants the fiesty Sadie from the moment he first sees her. She is not easy to control and Ramsey knows there are secr
4 Stars!

What I loved: From the very first page, this story starts out with a bang. Sadie is pretty ruthless when we first meet her and I am not even going to pretend that I didn't love it. I am always ecstatic to read about strong, brave women and Sadie is definitely that, even if it may get her into trouble.

I am a huge fan of action and I loved that this book is full of that. It seems like something is always going on and it was interesting seeing how things were connected in ways that the ch

This was the first book that I have ever read by Nikki Groom and the one statement that I can say is WOW! As I have been on a bit of an MC romance kick here recently this one was a surprise as it was two strong independent characters are being brought to the table. The flow of the story kept me on the edge of my seat until the very last page and I *SPOILERS* Ha you thought I would tell you! NOT GO READ it yourself you will not be disappointed.

WOW! This book was a brilliant read and I cannot wait for more. Nikki Groom has provided us with a great start to what I hope is a long MC Series. ‘Spark In The Ashes” is a definite 5 star read and if I could I would already preorder the rest of the ‘Steel Souls’ series.

Sadie is a bit of a lost soul trying to find her place in the world and learning how to deal with the force that drives her to seek revenge. Not only is she seeking revenge for herself but for

I've got to be honest, when I first started reading this book I wasn't really sure where the book was going... It did take me a while to get into the story and become really attached to the characters. But I've also got to say, by the end I was totally hooked!!

In this book we meet Ramsay and Sadie. Ramsey is VP of the Steel Souls MC. When Ramsey stumbles upon Sadie, he wants to know more about her and why she's done what she's done. He wants answers! I liked Ramsey's character straight away. He

Lately I've been discovering a bunch of new authors. Not because they're new in the business, but they're new for me. Nikki Groom is one of those authors. Spark in the Ashes is a MC Romance, yes, but it's also one of the most intense readings that I've have this month. The darkness surrounding the pages, the violence and the passion is breathtaking.

The characters are very particular. Sadie Foster is a strong woman, with a extreme sense of the justice, and she appear in the first pages as an ave
