This book is more than just a “rocker” book and it took me on a much unexpected ride. I haven’t read anything from this author before and I have to say that she is someone who knows how to write a book that takes you into the hearts and souls of the characters she writes about. The complexity of Truthful was something that made him seem “real” for whatever than means. I feel like I know what made up Truthful and I was able to follow along with him emotionally in everything he did. Savage Truth w ...more

I don't read a lot of Rockers story as they're not my fave but when you mix it with MC I don't have a choice lol. But this story is amazing, well done Kathleen I absolutely loved it ...more
Annie's reading corner
This story is divided in two. The first part is about one couple, Truth's parents, and the second part is about him.
I couldn't connect with the two stories. The first part, even though it was fast-paced, was really interesting and heart-breaking to read. I liked it, but the second part didn't have the same feelings, and it felt too different to be in the same book. I think it would have been better to have one novella and then this book.

I devoured this book, it was that good. I'm barely into Rockers book but The Grinders were introduced with the MC series Savage Angels MC so I had no choice lol.

I loved Truthful story, his upbringing wasn't the best thankfully he met people who changed his life for the better.

I miss the MC side but was ready to dive into Truth story. It was amazing and I read this in a day, I'm a huge fan of Kathleen writing and I want more Grinder now. I think I may like Rocker story.

Well, well, well Kathleen. Quite the little tale twister you have become as you get further and further into this world you have created. Most of which I don’t even see coming so I had quite a few OMG moments with Truth’s story.

As Truth approaches his wedding to Rosie, we get his life story, even going as far back as his parents. It was such a good way to do this. Rather than just start in the present, at the rocker we know and love, we got a full insight to how and w

OMG!! Truthful Hunter is the Ultimate Rock God to Kat Saunders Rock Goddess.
I have truly been waiting to read Truth's story since I first read about him in Kat's story, Savage Stalker (Savage Angels MC #1)! This much anticipated description of the beginning of the The Grinders is a complimentary addition to Author Kathleen Kelly's Savage Angels MC Series!
The storyline grabs you from the get go and doesn't let go, not even in the end. This author has you so wrapped around her characters that you

Kathleen Kelly you've done it again!
This author repeatedly releases great books and never fails to live up to her high standard of writing.
This new spin off series is terrific with the story of lead guitarist Truth. There is so much detail regarding his background that fills in many questions about him.
If you don't fall a little in love with Truth I'd be surprised as he is hot, sexy and talented. Rosie is a great character who is supportive but has that touch of sassy to delight.
I can honestly

This book was very different for me and not at all what I was expecting. I was waiting for an all out rockfest and that isn't what I got at all. The story was beautifully written and the last 30% was the best part for me and for that I gave the 4 stars.

Truthful Hunter who this book is about was a broken soul and his story is one that is very touching and often bought a lump to my throat but he was a very guarded man because of his past. When he meet the one, he falls hard and fast and this is wh

Mmmm I'm confused

OK I'm a little confused, I did enjoy the book but at 30% I almost stopped reading I couldn't stand it anymore!! Now since I've finished the other half of the book made up for it. With that said I'll explain, the first part of the book I checked twice because I thought I downloaded the strong book!! I mean who were these ppl?! Then I thought well maybe dex is truth?! But anyway I thought it was way way to much back story, I wanted more truth!! Lol but if you feel the same I wou

Voluntarily leaving a review. Savage Truth is an amazing read. Kathleen Kelly brings back the Savage Angels and mixes them well with the Grinders. We were introduced to Truth and Rosie in the Savage Angels series and he is a character that you want more of just for yourself. Savage Truth takes you on a journey that gives you the background and depth of how Truth became himself. Truth and Rosie are an exceptional couple, they are equal to each other and the calm to a storm for each other. There a ...more

AMAZING READ!!! Kathleen Kelly does it again. Savage Truth is the first book in her new series The Grinders. I'm so glad she started this series. We've all come to love the hot, sexy men of the Savage Angels MC. Now we get to know more about the band. This story focuses on Truth as his wedding to Rosie nears. I love that this story starts when Truth's parents first meet. We learn a bit about them and the way Truth grows up. You might want to keep a box of tissues handy as you read this one. Trut ...more

When it comes to Rosie, it seems like on thought always has Truth ready to go, “no, I’d rather be naked and so far inside you that you scream my name.” At the thought of sex with my Rosie, I’m hard, and I rub myself against her." Rosie was perfect for Truth, I loved the take charge attitude she had at times, “go and rescue Violet from Truth, and tell him to get his butt back over here with me.” Curtis grins at me. “And Curtis, you hurt her, and I’ll get my daddy to bury your body where no one wi ...more

This was a great read. Kathleen Kelly is the MC queen and now we get more from the Rockers, This isn't just Truth's story though this covers it all. We get all of the past too, we hear Faith and Dex's tale and also get snippets from Truth's sisters. Truth and Rosie's book is about finding that one person that can make the heartbreak of the past fade and give hope for the future. The book ends leaving the door open for the next book and I have a feeling it's going to be an exciting one. This woul ...more

OMG! I was first introduced to Truthful Hunter in Kathleen Kelly's Savage Angel MC series. He's Kat's guitarist in her band, The Grinders. And I've followed him as he found Rosie and fell in love. But Kathleen Kelly gives us his back story and I fell in love again. But this time I was enthralled with Dex and Faith. They were so lost. I cried. Neither were perfect - at all. And I found myself blaming Dex, and then blaming Faith, and then getting so mad and sad for both of them. Their's wasn't a h ...more

I did not expect any of the book to go the way it has but that's what makes it so good! This story starts from when Dexter and Faith met and how their life evolved. Time passes and the story focuses on Dexter and Faith's son Truthful or Truth as he wants to be called and the things that have gone on in his life and his band mates who are now his family. Because I don't want to give up the plot of this book I will just say that the man has a chance to be better than his father but how much can on ...more

I love all of Kathleen's books and this was no exception. This her new series and I can't wait for books in it. I have always loved Truth. It was great to read about his personal story. He has been through so much and now has found true love with Rosie. Truth had a truly horrible childhood until he found the right foster family and someone to help with his dreams. I can't say enough about this book or how much I loved it. It is a must read and all of Kathleen's books. I need the next book now, e ...more

Absolutely Brilliant.

Kathleen Kelly has done it again. Another brilliant book the first in what I am sure will be another fantastic series.
I was really looking forward to reading this book and was not disappointed. I was pulled into the story from the first chapter. I loved the way the book started was not expecting that.
A must read for all who like Kathleen Kelly. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this book. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.

Awesome read

Wow this is a brilliant read. Truth is a man with a past that is not pleasant. Until he meets his mentor and steers himself in the right path. This follows him from a young age to the mam his is today. This is the start of an addictive series I think.

Willingly reviewed on behalf of Endlessly Reading book blog.

Overall Thoughts: This book is supposed to be a rock star romance but IMO it has a character that is a rock star but to me didn't have that feel that I would associate to that genre. Rock Star romances are one of my favorite genres only because music is a big part of my life. But to me this story was a mashed-up mess. It's written in multiple POV which adds to confusion. The story starts off with Dex and Faith, then switches to Truth. Y

The story starts with a young girl named Faithful who wanted nothing more then to be popular in school. She decides the only way is to be the head football player, once she has everyone will want her. When the time comes she realizes she really doesn't want it this way but he takes what he wants and has a good laugh with all the other players. She ends up being the girl to go to if you want something, a terrible reputation and she meets her bf's brother's friend Dex and well things end up going ...more

Truthfully....LOL I was so damn confused when I started this book. I had no idea who the heck Dex and Fatihful were. Then I figured it out and here IMO is were it gets creepy. Dex was 26 yrs. old and the instant he saw Faith he feel for her hard. The problem was that she was only 16. Faith wanted nothing more than to be popular and to get that she slept with the entire football team. Dex didn't see Faiths flaws, to him she was perfect. When things started going wrong and Dex accused Faith of not ...more

This was the first book in a new series from Kathleen Kelly. It is a stand alone, however, I think the readking experience may be more enjoyable if this is read after reading the Savage Angels series.

This book centres on Truth, who we have previously met in the Savage Angels series. If I'm honest the first half of the book focuses on Truth's parents and how he came into the world. While this was moving and touching, for me I would have preferred this had been condenced a little and we kicked of
