I aint gonna lie...I was waiting for Smoke's story. Something about the this quiet biker that made me want to know his story. Well, now I do and what a story it was. I was pulled in from the get go and I couldnt put it down no matter how much my real world needed me. Okay, maybe I stopped here and there cause I have a kid to take care of but once he was situated, trust me my greedy little hands swept up that kindle so I could get back to my Grims.

The story for me just flowed well and the charac

This story is about two people finding each other again, after many years apart, realize they still love each other, and find a way to get their happy ending. It is a second chance love story with steamy sex scenes, danger, and family. This story pulled me in and kept me hooked until the end. I enjoyed being in this world again with all of its characters.I hope to read Hack's story next!? This was a good read.

This series captured my attention from the first book until this one. Smoke's story was always the one I wanted and this did not disappoint.

Gidget and Smoke were raised in the same club (MC Club) and they fell in love. Smoke was just a prospect at the time so they had everything planned out. Gidget was going to become a nurse and Smoke was going to get his patch. But his father gave him some advice about being in the club and having

I must admit, the more I am reading this writing combination between Emily Minton and Shelley Springfield, the more I am loving it. Nasty Bastard very well may be my favorite one of this series. Maybe it is that second chance romance aspect, maybe it is the sexiness that is Smoke, maybe it is that connection between them that never fully severed itself, but whatever it was this book had my attention from the beg

The fourth installment in its series, Nasty Bastard, kept the flow of blood, grit, sex, violence and ultimate sacrifice as both Emily Minton and Shelley Springfield captivate and wow readers again with their latest follow up.

I really enjoy this particular MC series as each story is so uniquely different from the rest and yet interwine with its counterparts so nicely.

I am definitely going to continue supporting these authors as they keep up delivering hit after hit!

Smoke and Gidget! YUP! Complication … oh you bet. You know who Gidget is If you follow this series however if you do not you can read this as a standalone. And yes there is a cliffhanger. BOOM .. it’s a big one too.

Layton “Smoke” and Gidget were childhood sweethearts both raised in the MC. The Grim Bastards were home. Smoke had more of a decent upbringing than Gidget as her father was not around and eventually betrayed the club after Gi

Hold on to your seats for another crazy ride in this series!! I am so happy that I have been along for the ride with this one. There is so much pain and hurt left from how Gidget and Smoke's relationship ended that it will be something that needs to be worked through and then not only do you have that but someone is threatening Gidget and there is someone that doesn't want them to be together again, stirring up problems. This was definitely a very good read that I was totally sucked into. Smoke ...more

Back when he was a prospect, Smoke broke the heart of the girl he’d loved since he was 9 years old; Gidget, daughter of the traitorous MC brother, Stone. With Stone gone, recently divorced and wanting a new life for her and her son, Parker, Gidget returns to the house she grew up in. Almost immediately though, a vicious attack has her rethinking her decision to move home, especially when the guy who broke her heart 13 years earlier turns out to be the one who rescues her.

I think I may start out every review for every book in this series saying this is my favorite book yet....but seriously this is my favorite book yet!! I can't really even explain why this is my favorite book yet but it really was. Smoke though made me want to slap the s*** outta him in the beginning. I get why he did what he did really but didn't make me less mad at him. And Gidget, *sigh* I just want to hug her and be her best friend. The whole story I just love her and want her to get her HEA. ...more

One thing that I absolutely love about this series is that the females are fearless wonderful characters. Don't get me wrong I love the guys but this series has exceptional females. And this book was no different. I loved Gidget.

Smoke and Gidget have loved each other forever. A very important night doesn't end up like either expect and they separate. After Gidget goes through a divorce and heads back home to the one place she swore she would never return to.

We have another hit! Smoke and Gidget story is absolutely beautiful. I love second chance romances and this hit all my feels. Gidget is the one that Smoke pushed away when they were younger, but now she's back and he will do anything to make her his again. It seems Stone's traitorous actions continue to affect the brotherhood and more secrets are being revealed. Can Smoke prove to Gidget that she is everything to him? Or will Gi

Each book i read of this series get's better and better. They pull you in from the first chapter and leave you unable to put it down. Nasty Bastard is the 4th book in the Grim Bastards series and one i've been waiting for wanting to know more about Smokes past if you have read these books from the first we get some insight into his past but all it did was have me eagerly waiting for more. Emily and Shelley have laid the path to this read and what a read we got!!

Whew! I don't usually jump into a series this far on, but this book was just fine. The authors gave you just enough backstory that you aren't lost and can understand who the characters from the previous books are.

There were little to no typos. Well edited. Writing was great and conversations weren't stilted. Everything sounded natural.

There is good action in this book... lots of things happen. There are some sex scenes, but they don't dominate the story. The chapters are POV from each character.

Nasty Bastard is book number 4 in the Grim Bastard series. I love how the authors weave the previous books together to continue this storyline. To get the full enjoyment of this series the books need to be read in order.

The second chance romance storytelling of Smoke and Gidget is nothing new. They were sweethearts at a young age but Smoke wanted to ensure that Gidget would never regret her choice to stay with him. To ultimately become his ol

Nasty Bastard is the story of Smoke (Layton) and Gidget, and it's a second chance romance.

This pair found love at a young age, but circumstances meant that Smoke hurt Gidget in order for her to follow her dreams.

Smoke never stopped loving Gidget, and when circumstances have her reappearing in his life, he's determined to give their relationship another chance, and this time keep her.

Gidget is an incredibly resilient character, but can only take so much.

This book, is full of action,
