Every story in this book is a definite 5* read!!!!

Holding Out
Lila Rose is an unbelievable author. I laughed so much during this book, but there was plenty to keep me on the edge of my seat, as well.

This is the first book in the Hawks Motorcycle Club series & I hope there will be lots more. Ms. Rose is an Aussie writer so sometimes some of the phrasing made me go hmmm until I remembered that.

I absolutely loved Talon & Zara's story. I look forward to hearing more about them when I get to

Hawks MC: Ballarat Charter (volume one) has the first three in the MC series. I’m reading it again, since the characters you cannot help falling in love all over with, but also because I always regretted not doing a review so that others could find and most likely fall in love with Lila Rose’s stories.
My very first MC book was hers. The book “Holding Out” kept showing up in my iBooks listing and I became intrigued. Best decision ever as I haven’t had one regret in every book she has produced.

Lila Rose rocks out when comes to writing awesome MC books. I loved all 3 books in this collection. I can't pick a favorite out of these 3 because I loved them all.
Meet the Characters:

Main Characters:
Wildcat (Zara): Was sweet, strong, loving, and a wonderful mother.
Boss Man (Talon, Hawks MC Prez): Was one tough foul mouthed alpha man, very protective, and wonderful father
Hell Mouth (Deanna): Was snarky, foul mouthed, tough yet soft all rolled into one
Griz (Grady, Hawks MC Vice

This series should come with warning label....

Warning: this series contains so much alpha male hotness, your panties could possibly combust, melt, or be extremely soaked. It maybe be easier if you just not wear them while reading. Yeah I think that is a great warning label.

I love how fast paced these stories are, how the women in the Hawks MC meet. Love reading how their women start off not so much damaged but in much needed help or saving from dark & scary pasts, shadows that follow &

Way better than I anticipated!

Honestly I got this book set because I figured it would be a quick, superficial read. I was so wrong. I love everything about each of the books and can't wait to get started on volume 2. The characters are fabulous and will developed with back stories that give the depth. The heros are sexy AF, possessive, alfa bikers that live to live and protect their feisty, bad-ass women. The banter is entertaining, and the feels surprisingly plentiful. There's an abundance of

Lila Rose is an unbelievable author that was able to bring to life an incredible MC family.
Volume #1 of the Hawks MC starts with Talon and Zara, Griz and Deanna, Killer and Ivy. All these guys are tough alpha men, who protect their family.
Zara, Wildcat, is a woman who is hiding from a violent past, until Talon comes to her rescue. Deanna, Hell Mouth, is Zara’s best friend. Her family and past are coming to invade her present life with Griz. Ivy, who came to be known as Chatter, runs into a bit

OMG.......Love, Love, Love this series!

This series is filled with amazing men, fabulous women. It's filled with humor, real laugh out loud laughter. The storylines are awesome, the interactions between all of the characters is real. The love, anger, good times, and bad times. I love these take charge alpha men . The quirky heart warming women. Talon, Griz, and Killer are so hot. But then Zara, Deanna, and Ivy are their true matches. I cannot wait for more books about other members of the Hawks

Hawks Mc and their women’s

I didn’t have to read part 1 of the Hawks MC Series because I had the book already and read it. But book 2 and 2.5 was good, but you know one always better lol, but I wasn’t at all disappointed but hmm as I think Fox aka Killer was the quite dude that was in book 1 and two lol that smile a lot glad he found Love. Between not going to say much about book two as I did 2.5 since I reviewed it already and as I will 2.5

good series!

This is the first three books in the series, all of which I really enjoyed! Talon and Zara are neighbors that fall in love with Zara’s ex trying to kill her. Griz and Deanna fall in love while trying to keep her safe from her foster brother. Fox/Killer and Ivy fall in love through a dating site, their story is a novella instead of a full book like the others. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

I loved Hiding Out! Talon and Wildcat are amazing.
Climbing Out I had a bit of trouble getting through. I felt that it was a bit anticlimactic. It was still a good book.
Finding out was another one that I loved. My only complaint was that it was a novella. I would love more Killer and Ivy.
Definitely a series worth checking out and I am definitely going to read volume 2.

I tried to finish this series but couldn’t. A friend suggested it and now I am seriously questioning her judgement. The writing horrible, pace on hyper speed making it so unbelievable. The characters sucked and were inconsistent in their behavior I found it hard to like them. The situations while could be plausible the authors pace spoiled everything.

Recommendations - get an editor and there is hope for the plot and characters.

I received volume 1 via a book club review, and was asked to provide feedback.
I enjoyed all 3 books, story lines were fantastic, the character's were believable.
I laughed and even cried with one of the books. I find it hard to find authors that are able to captivate with stories, but I found I couldn't put volume 1 down.
I just bought volume 2 because I have to find out what happens to the rest of the character's.
Thank you Lila, you are amazing.

Freakin hot

God I love the boy's from Hawks MC. Lila Rose is a kick A$$ Author and doesn't disappoint when it comes to Alpha bikers. Their domineering, hot , filthy, kinky and love on their women a way a woman should be loved. Five flaming Stars from this reader. Word of advice .! When reading these books make sure your air conditioner is set to freeze because you will be burning up in no time.

Good books. Likeable characters.
I'd rate 3.5 and recommend it.
I do think the first book fell a little short because it went from six years ago and jumped straight to now. They already knew one another so I felt like there were key points of their meeting that I missed.
Although, it was easy to keep reading after being introduced to all the key players.

My god!

I loved this series. Didn’t put down my phone at all! I’m in love. Dee is like my soul sister. My god the men sounded like gods. I laughed a lot and I loved that most about a book. Characters where amazing. I can wait to read the others stories. Great job! Volume #2 here I come!

A really great read. Something to clear the cobwebs easy to read with a little of everything- Sexy times, romance, hot bikers and kick arse hilarious women!!!

Great series can't wait to read volume two!!! I recommend reading in sequence and just binge read them all they are short and fun.

Each individual book will have your heart pounding in multiple ways...

While the characters carry over from one book to the next, they're each a separate a story. Although this collection has a few things in common: hot dominant alpha males, saucy sarcastic females, drama, action, and emotional turmoil.
Happy reading : )

Where have you been all my life Lila Rose?

This series was recommended from a group on Facebook. I was hooked by the first paragraph. The style of writing flowed and I was captured and captivated by the characters. Loved this MC group and can't wait to read the next set of books. You won't be sorry to buy this series.

Freaking A! I love you Ms. Rose! These books were awesome. I can't wait to read the next set! I laughed so hard and was on the verge of tears other times. I love how you have your readers connect to the characters. And my goodness I wish a Hawk or whoever's MC club wanted me. They can call me Snickers. Ijs.

Loved the three stories in this collection. Holding out with Talon and Zara, Climbing Out with Deanna and Griz, and Finding Out with Ivy and Fox. The banter was quite entertaining with the alpha heroes who protected their women. Lots of hot steam, action and romance rolled into one great selection.

Another one of those alpha males, must obey at all time, yet have some kind of kink with the females. Really fast paced and witty as hell. The romance in each novel is pretty in your face with no shame. Just a fun light read love that about this series.

Really good series! The men are awesome. I liked the hint of kink in Killers story haha. I wish there was a tad bit more suspense/dark parts but other than that I really enjoyed.

Great read

I really loved this book. All three are great stories are great just by themselves. Each story adds to the next but can stand by itself. My favorite was Hell Mouth. She is brass and ballsy. Jillian is just down right hilarious. Talon and Zarra story was the best.

I read the first two books before but never all together. Loved the way it was put together. Loved the way the author put into work of a taste of the biker world. It's sexy, erotic and romantic. Can't wait to read volume 2!

Fun, witty and sexy! I love the lighthearted banter throughout all the stories, and how they all love each other so much! You feel like it would be so much fun to be there with them. Can't wait to read the rest of em!!!
