It’s one thing knowing your ex-boyfriend is a bit of a player, but it’s another thing altogether to find out he’s pimping himself out to anyone who’ll pay good money for it.

Not just himself, either. That would be far too regular for Darren Trent.

Darren Trent – my teenage sweetheart and father to my two young girls – is not just whoring himself out. Oh no. Darren Trent pim

Jodie Symmonds was a single parent to two young girls, Mia and Ruby. She had been working in a cafe for years to support her family. All was well until she started to hear rumors of her ex boyfriend's latest gig.

Darren Trent was a mechanic with four other men as his staff. He was a devoted father to his daughters. With garage business booming, he still found time to entertain the girls. But secretly, he also spent time for his

Another creak of the door, and there was Ruby.
He beckoned her over. “Come on, Rubes, group hug, room for another small one.”
She smiled her brightest smile, and came over, flung her arms around all three of us, and there we stayed, four broken people who hadn’t realised they were broken, not until they were put back together again.
I hugged Ruby and Mia, and Darren hugged all of us.
I felt safer than I’d felt in years. More complete than I’d felt in years.

I decided to pick this book up after I read so many reviews stating that it was more than what it seemed based on the title and the cover. Now having read it, I have to say that I agree. Don't get me wrong, you still get the racy sex scenes, but not to the extent that you would think.

Bang Gang is really a second chance romance about a couple, Darren and Jodie, that fell in love when they were just teenagers. They wind up having two little girls, and soon the stress of being young parents strugg

You will get it when you read it and its not what you think :)

This book is not what you think when you read the title it is so much more. This is a story about finding yourself, stepping out of your comfort zone, trust, love, second chances, friendship and most of all family.

It went through the struggles of single parenting and shared custody, the everyday troubles that are easily handled when two parents live together but are much harder for separated couples. The struggle of

If Jade West writes it, I will read it! She has quickly become one of my favorite authors for her ability to push the limits of erotica with no care. I love how she just writes what the hell she wants without worrying about the "normal" erotic romance. Bang Gang is no different and pushes the limits yet again, making me love it.

Now lets just forget about the hotness of the book for just a minute, I promise I'll get back to it. But this book isn't just a smutty story with no actual romance invol
4.5 smutastic Stars!


Jade does not disappoint....ever since reading "Sugar Daddies" ❤ I so need the 2nd book! I'm HOOKED....

This is yet another captivating and heart rendering story of Darren & Jodie's path of self discovery, re invention, and 2nd chance at love...and realizing what defines you both and above all fighting for the most important thing of & family....

With Jades signature Kink and Hot Dirty Sex thrown in to the mix! Loved it... ;)

4.5 Stars!


Jodie Symmonds grew up in the small village where she resides with her two lovely daughters. Working at the local café, Jodie works hard to provide but over the years she’s lost her identity as a woman. Not wanting to trade her life for anything, Jodie resolves to move forward by living a fantasy.

“I was going to get mine, and it was going to be worth every penny, the experience of a lifetime alright.”

Darren Trent is a mechanic/shop owner with a muscled physique and hot tats to boot

Jade West writes dirty, naughty fun. She also writes stories that are more than what their titles suggest. Bang Gang was a definitely a bit dirty and had a bit more depth than I was expecting. I read it in one sitting because once I started I had to know how the whole situation was going to play out.

Bang Gang follows Darren Trent and his ex and baby mama, Jodie. They were high school sweethearts that had two children together but ended up broken up yet still coparenting. Living in a small

I keep repeating my self after each book I read by Jade West but her books keep getting better and better. If there's one thing I know is that Jade never goes where she is expected. She always surprises me with her books and the theme she approached. Bang Gang has a catchy title for those who are looking for great booze but for those who will read it

So this is my 3rd Jade West book, I basically read her books back to back, suffice it to say I’m on a Jade West binge.

Bang Gang is not as smutty as I thought it would be, but that’s a good thing. It had substance and I kid you not…

This was totally unexpected and so freaking good. I've read West's Dirty series and enjoyed most of them but Bang Gang was right up my alley. It's actually my favorite of hers so far. West is known for her dirty and hardcore erotica so she definitely surprised me with her soft side here. Yes, there's sex in Bang Gang but not too much and it's not over the top. I actually felt I was reading a romance and I liked that.

March was such an awesome reading month. I read 24 books and 12 of them were 5 star reads. Bang Gang is a star among stars. My absolute favorite read of the month.

I'm in the minority here once again, as all my GR friends who read this were super enthusiastic about it. I'm not.

Where do I begin? Well I wanted a dirty story and the title was pretty suggestive, right?
I should have leaned by now that I should read carefully the blurbs and other reviews. Even if all my friends loved it, at least I would have known what to expect. I kind of dived in this clueless and then I got disappointed because I expected so much mo

Unbelievable!!! It was fucking hilarious. I'm so, so happy with this author. Bang Gang and Sugar Daddies were wonderful reads. I was totally unprepared about how much I would love them.

I might even love Bang Gang a bit more than Sugar Daddies. It was just so FUNNY. I also loved the second chance love story. Trend was just so swoon worthy. Wouldn't say no to him at all. And I would definitely want to read about Tonya and Buck. My, would that be something.:-)

ALL the stars.


Dear Amazon & Goodreads:
There aren't enough stars to give for this one.

Jade West gives me the feels. All of them. Love, lust, tears, laughter. Her books are filthy FILTHY f-i-l-t-h-y dirty but deliciously so. And she doesn't skimp on plot. She has never disappointed me so far and I've read all but one of her books. Off I go to read the one I forgot I hadn't read yet.

Jodie Symmonds is mom before anything else, wrangling her two daughters, dealing with her ex, and only taking a bit of time to herself on Mondays. She's done fine ignoring all the gossip, but when Darren Trent is mentioned, and as more than just her baby daddy, she pays attention. She can ignore his bad habits, his drinking and fighting, but hearing about his set of friends offering gang bangs at a cost, she can't ignore it. Of course, she's not thin
Self note: it's a matter of taste. Different folks different strokes. I think there's nothing remotely sexy, romantic or erotic about group sex. 5 men and 1 woman. This sounds more like a bad low grade porn that I'd rather watch than pick up a book when the MCs were divorced, had 2 girls and are involved in this porn fest. Sorry, I can't imagine being a parent doing this specially with the chance maybe in the future my daughters would find out about it and maybe do that too and I won't be able t ...more

I need a good book to cleanse my head right now.
Drama and tears!

Lots of drama, lots of dirty sex, a great storyline and of course a happily ever after with an even newer addition to the family.
Bang Gang is the first book I've read by Jade West.

The premise of the book intrigued me. It's the first book I've read with three or more partners and I wasn't sure how I would like it. It definitely wasn't a safe book for my friends who look for safe. It was, however, a second chance HEA as the underlying theme.

I immediately loved the primary characters. Darren Trent and Jodie Symmonds were perfect for each other. Gorgeous, sexy, mature, experienced, sassy and more. They had a forever love that

5 totally more than expected stars!

When this book was recommended to me I assumed from the name and cover, that it would be a taboo and smutty read. While there were definitely a few of those moments this story went so far beyond that! It was emotional, heart-warming, and even funny at moments.

Jade West gave us a beautifully written second chance romance that had so many real moments that balanced out any that felt OTT. I don't think I can mention enough how real the banter felt, how real the r

Most people might be okay with the content of this book. I am not most people.

It's not for the reasons you might think. Well, not really. But I will admit this was all me.

I'm not a fan of couples who don't communicate well. I get that Trent was the strong, silent type, but so much could have been avoided had he and Jo uttered more than the need to talk to one another without ever saying anything, at least not until the end.

Also, they sort of get back together after not communicating except th
Wow I floved this one.

This felt grounded, real and a poignant story of childhood sweethearts who'd grown apart as they grew up, but who both still held lots of affection for one another.

And I cannot lie, the smut was primal and intense and...ok. #onehandedread

This is one of my favourite reads of this year and definitely my new fave Jade West. Loved it.

Standalone, available on ku. Highly recommended.

Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
