Lisa, the heroine was the characters I enjoyed in this tale. Round, former VP of Grim Bastard was a jerk throughout the story but finally with the help of his son, Smoke he shook off his stupidity, woke up and claimed Lisa as his old lady!

Life lesson number one…you better appreciate what you have before you lose it. Would this be something that Round found out the hard way? Even with his son, Smoke, warning him of Rocky’s return from prison to the Bastard’s Clubhouse and with Rocky wanting Lisa as his own old lady six years earlier that warning pissed Round off. Words were flying from Round’s mouth before he realized what he was actually saying. The words that Round ranted found Lisa’s ear as she was passing through the clubhouse ...more

This series has been a guilty pleasure of mine and it keeps on getting better. The plot synopsis of it I mean, how could you not be curious as to how a romance like this would pan out? I'm used to outside heroines in distress getting said hot alpha biker man's attention and this one happens to be one of the club sluts.

I've been following author Emily Minton's MC reads for a while, but her and Shelley Springfield combined are both a lovely and deadly combo. Defnitely double the twists and double

Guilty Bastard is a great novella belonging to the Grim Bastard's MC series by the amazing Shelley Springfield and Emily Minton. It is Round and Lisa's story.

What do you get when a club whore falls for a brother? One heck of a good read! When Lisa first started hanging around the Grim Bastard's clubhouse, she was happy to be shared by all of the brothers. However, that all changed when she fell for Round. She only wanted him and was no longer willing to be a "bed warmer". The problem was that Ro

I enjoyed this one as well...I always like when the club girl falls for an officer and he feels the same but resists for some reason or another...just to have the girl show him the error of his ways.
Round had suffered tragedy but Lisa was always there for him and it takes a lot of trials and mistakes to get these two on the same page.
I liked how it ended and all the love and tears it took to get there.

Wow!! I loved the first two books in this series and this was no different. It' a great quick read. Even though all three books are standalones I would definitely read them IN order.

This is Round's story. He's the old VP of the Grim Bastards. He stepped down when Baz's dad died and he took over. Round knew his son Smoke was the right man to sit at Baz's side to run the club the right way. Round's life definitely wasn't what he wanted. His life was his MC. He has prove

Guilty Bastard is a novella that is focused on Grim Bastards member Round and ex-clubwhore Lisa. While this may be short, it's packed with a lot of pain, regrets, self-loathing, and love. Round has always seemed like a stand up guy who believes in the club, even when it meant he had to choose the club over his daughter. Lisa has earned the respect of the club and has brothers wanting to make her their old lady, but she always refused. It’s been obvious that Lisa and Round have some type of relat ...more

This story is about Lisa and Round. A Club Whore and a Brother, falling in love. Is that possible?

Round is Smoke's father and Lisa use to be a club whore but then she fell in love with him. But they couldn't be together because Round was still married (in name only). So she waited, giving up being a club whore and taking over looking after all the new girls coming into the club.
Round was in love with Lisa but he had an old lady already, but then his w

Lisa Higgins was a club girl. From the time she was seventeen she's been with the Grim Bastards MC. She was always fine with the way things were until she falls for Round. But Rounds married, or at least married in the sense of the word and not really with his heart. When he realizes he loves Lisa like he's never loved anyone else he turns into a gilt ridden bastard. This is Round and Lisa's story.

I received a copy in return for an honest review. I can't express how much I love this series, Emily and Shelley have written something special with this one. Guilty Bastard is the 3rd book in the Grim Bastards MC series and its unique. This is a dark gritty love story that is years in the making. The 2 main characters are different, the synopsis says it all. How can a love grow when guilt holds one party back and if he doesn't let go of the past, he may lose his future. Lisa knows her place, sh ...more

This is about Lisa and Round. Round is Smoke's dad. He used to be VP when Boz's dad was president. He stepped down because new blood was needed to help the Grim Bastards be what they needed to be. Lisa takes care of the clubs girls. They both want each other but Round has an old lady, albeit a uninterested one. They can't take it any longer and succumb to their desires. But Round feels guilty because even though he doesn't have an old lady anymore why should he have Lisa become his new old lady ...more

I am in love with all of the Grim Bastards books. These authors gave us Dirty and Filthy and now they are giving us Guilty.
Round is a Guilty Bastard and that has kept him from claiming his woman, Lisa. The question is, can Round work through his guilt so that he can claim his woman and prove to her that she is more than just the club whore before it is too late.
Guilty Bastard is a novella and a very short read, but I found it just as satisfying as the full length books in the series. At the end

I'm seriously in love with this series and every time I read a book I'm itching to read the next. This one was a novella and I read it in a couple hours. Guilty bastard is the story of Smoke's dad Round and a club "girl" Lisa. In most MC books I read I can't stand the club whores but you can't help to love and feel bad for Lisa. With a novella it's hard to write a review without giving away the whole story(for me anyways) so what I'll say is if you've read from these two ladies before then you k ...more

I loved this story. Lisa has a good soft heart, yet she has a fierce side that comes out. Round, he has so many regrets from the past, with his wife/mother of his kids, that he can't fully move on with Lisa. Lisa feels she will never be more to Round than a bed warmer, and as you read the story you know it isn't true. The love these two have for each other is moving....and the way they heat up the sheets, or kitchen, without the stove on, is HOT!!!! I love this series, and it is one not to be mi ...more

From the very first page, I fell into this story and kept turning the pages until I couldn't any more. This story is about a complicated relationship between two people who care for one another, but hurt one another none the less. This couple hurt my heart some on their journey to getting their happy ending. This couple takes us on an emotional ride, but in the end, they get their HEA. This was a quick, good read that I definitely enjoyed reading. I cannot wait to read more in this series!

I was engaged with these characters. Lisa, the club girl who falls in love with one of the brothers. Round, who can't let go of his dead wife even though they didn't have the best of relationships. Round is consumed with guilt, feeling he didn't feel as much love as he should for his former wife. Lisa, always giving and making excuses for Round until years later when she's had enough. Round learns he has to make it right with Lisa and he ends up really groveling to get her back. I have not read ...more

Guilty Bastard is a delicious little snack to read. It is the story of Road and Lisa. Round is feeling guilty for not loving his late wife the way he thinks she deserved. Lisa is a club whore who fell in love with a brother. Emily and Shelley again give us a wonderful story to read that makes you want more. Road and Lisa’s story is just enough to hold us over until we get the next installment of the Grim Bastards series.

Love this series

This novella was a nice surprise. Lisa was one of my favorite side characters from the first two stories. She is a kick ass chick who deserves the best. She is loyal to the club and loves it like the members. Round is an older member of the club who we also meet in the previous stories. Their story together broke my heart a little bit, but at the end all was good!!! Can't wait for Smoke's story.

I enjoyed reading Guilty Bastard. It wasnt as dark as the others in the series and that's ok.
Lisa and Round were a little older but unfortunately for Round he wasn't any wiser. He took Lisa for granted and she finally had enough. Round was sweet but I wanted to bop in the head at times. Thank God his son was there to help his dad out.

They took a few years but did find their HEA in the end.

Good but short

I really liked it but it was too short.I have been in this type of relationship. So I can say I have been where Lisa was. Not the club who're but being second to someone who was dead. Great dynamic but way to short. A nice tease to hold over the fans good book overall.
