Conan was the first book in the Black Shamrocks First Generation series by Kylie Hillman. It was my first book by the author.

Cole was a legacy prospect within the Black Shamrocks MC. His father was the Sergeant At Arms but even a legacy had to prove himself and be voted in unanimously. He had been a prospect for a year and was hoping to be patched in any day. Then he met her.

Coleen had a great life until her parents were killed in an auto accident. From that point on, her life evolved around pro

Conan I loved it! Book 1 in the spin off series about the first generation Black Shamrocks MC by Kylie Hillman was absolutely fantastic. I am a huge Black Shamrock fan and adored the journey I took with Mik, Timber, Benji, Joel, Lainey and JJ so these books hold a special place in my heart.

We kick off the series with Timber’s old man Colin “Conan” Blake and his extremely early days as a prospect for the club. Conan is a total legend. His personality doesn’t seem to fit that of a rough, tough, sc

Carla's Five Star Review

Conan is the first book in the Black Shamrocks MC: First Generation series.

If you have read anything by Kylie Hillman, you already know that she knows how to craft a story like no other! This is Conan and Colleen's story, and it is so good that I read the entire thing in one sitting. I swear, I just couldn't put it down once I started reading it!

Conan and Colleen's story is filled with love and commitment, but don't let this statement fool you. Their story contains all of

I seriously need to catch up on reading ALL the Black Shamrock books if they are as amazing as this story.

Colleen is not quite 18 in the story and she reacted appropriately for her age but also had a feeling of quiet strength and maturity about her (not surprising given the tragedy of her family situation). The plot and the characters all felt so real . I cried for and with Colleen, wanted to hug and kiss Cole (especially when he was looking out for Colleen) and hated her uncle. There wasn't

Conan is the first instalment of the spin off series of the Black Shamrocks. We are about the take a new journey of the Black Shamrocks with the First Generation of there younger days of being prospects and the women in their lives.

A great start in the new spin-off to the Black Shamrocks MC series by Kylie. I loved reading about how the guys were when they were younger before they officially got patched in. I loved the quote at the beginning, I found it so fitting for Cole.
The prologue definitely had me intrigued after reading it, I loved the mysteriousness of it. I couldn’t wait to find out more about Cole and Colleen and their journey together.
I really enjoyed their story. It was a rollercoaster of emotions, parts wher

This is my first book by this author, but it won't be the last.

I have not read any of the Black Shamrocks MC books previously, but as these precede that series I'm not lost as to what's happening. I appreciate that when coming in at such a late part of the game. And while this felt a lot more YA/NA than I was expecting, it's still enjoyable. (The reason why I dropped the rating to 3 stars.)

I liked Cole being his own man at such a young age. I thought Colleen was a great big sister, and she has a

This is my first book by this author and it was great...it leans more toward the YA readers. It was a well written, paced story with twists and turns,suspense, betrayal and ambition to protect love ones. Colin “Conan” Blake was raised in the Black Shamrock MC with his father and friends. He was well aware of the rules and regulations within the club as he is a prospect...until he meets Colleen McCormack.
Colleen McCormack is very protective of her younger sister after losing her parents but the s

Conan is book one in the new Black Shamrocks MC: First Generation, and what a passion filled read. This book was everything you’d expect from this author, she kept true to the values we expect from the Black Shamrocks and gave us a beautiful story of love, commitment, dedication and honor. This is Conan and Colleen’s story and shows us how they met and the hell they went through to get their HEA. Conan was passionate and loyal and struggled at first with following his heart or his head. Colleen ...more

You know it's strange, we've already met the first generation but they're much much older with Kylie's Black Shamrocks MC series. Seeing them in their youth at the very beginning was different. I loved it, Kylie has always been able to write a story that gets to the heart of the matter, the good, the bad and the ugly. Cole and Colleen's story took me on a whole gauntlet of emotions, life isn't meant to be all sunshine and roses, there are times when things are dark and dangerous and it's never e ...more

I was really torn on this story and series in general. I liked the relationship between Colleen and Cole, especially with him recognizing the situation that Colleen is in after the death of her parents, and how she does anything to protect her younger sister from what their lives have turned into. I enjoyed that the character of Cole was willing to go back on his family and his brotherhood in order to protect her. I felt that there was something going on within the MC along the lines of ulterior ...more

Oh man, this was my first book by this author, and I have to say I enjoyed it so much.
This is really my type of MC Book... Everything about this book was so good. Raw, gritty, alpha males, everything you would want in a hardcore MC book.

Conan oh my word, what a freaking sweetie... Well until you got on the wrong side of him. Then you will the alpha possessive biker show up.
Colleen, sweet, vulnerable but the strength she had will surprise you. And just because she was young, doesn't mean she didn

What a sensational start to the next generation of the Black Shamrocks MC.

Cole is very soon to be patched in the Black Shamrocks MC, along with his lifelong friends Paddy, Victor and Brian. Colleen and Jessica McCormack are orphaned and living with their drug addicted uncle, Colleen is given to the MC to help work off a debt when Cole takes an instant liking to her. Things do not go smoothly for them though.

I really enjoyed the ferocity of Cole’s character and his beliefs. Terrific character des

Having read the entire Black Shamrocks series first, I felt I had a very good idea of what to expect and I wasn't disappointed. The book was definitely what you would expect from Kylie in terms of her writing style and following the ethos of the Black Shamrocks. In common with the Black Shamrocks series, this book deals with subject matter that is very very hard to swallow so readers need to be aware of that. The story line picks up Conan as a teenager and prospect in the Black Shamrocks, and hi ...more

I was so excited to get back into the Black Shamrocks world and Conan did not dissapoint.
There is love, betrayal, conflict and so much more.This story takes you through a range of emotions, some moments will make your heart melt some moments may make you tear up and there is even a few laughs as well. I loved the characters, the story was so easy to get into and I just didn't want it to end. I absolutely loved reading Conan's story and I definitely reccomend giving this book a

This is a love story between two teenagers who's backgrounds are very different. Colin, a Black Shamrocks MC Prospect and son of one of the leaders has fallen head over heels for a girl, Colleen. Her life started out normal and then upon the accidental death of her parents she and her sister are thrown into a dangerous world they both want to escape. Their attraction is immediate and although Colin has been warned to stay away he simply can't. Their awkwardness is hilarious.

It takes Conan one look at her and he's goner. He needs to rescue her, at all costs.

I don't know what to say about this book other than its freaking incredible!! It's shorter than the first Shamrocks series but it was so perfect! I absolutely adored Conan and his younger days. He's a total Prince Charming that rides a Harley in my book. And Colleen.... she totally has my heart as well. They are a perfect couple and this story was so beautiful! I can't freaking wait to read more of this series!!!

A fast and easy read.

My first read by the author and it did not disappoint. This was a fast and easy read with drama, suspense and heat. I enjoyed the comradeship in the MC family that the author shows especially what Cole had with Vic, Brian, and Paddy. Colleen strong will to protect her sister especially in their situation made her character likable. Overall a good read that will have me looking for future books from this author.

Gritty

You do have to say one thing about this book--it doesn't pull any punches. It doesn't romanticize motorcycle clubs and portray its members as noble knights on motorized steeds. The Black Shamrocks are outlaws. They do as they please but have rules they follow. Loyalty to the club is demanded even if it conflicts with your life and love. This is a gritty, hard-hitting story that portrays the seedy side of motorcycle clubs.

I thought this was a great MC story. It is great to see how it all began. Cole was a prospect waiting until it is his turn to be patched. Nothing was more important until the one girl that might change everything entered his life. If he had to would he give up the MC for her? I really enjoyed finding out. Huge fan of the stories by this author and this one did not disappoint.

OMG what's not to love about the Black Shamrocks MC... and what a way to start the First Generation series!! This book had everything I've come to expect from a Kylie Hillman book, it had grit, heart and a whole lot of angst; but most of all the brotherhood and loyalty the MC members showed each other, all the while protecting what is theirs... bring on Viking is all I can say!!

There was a warning but Sluts and underage girls!? Disgusting! Slut this whore that... I think I made it to Page 4 and I skipped paragraphs. I can’t believe this “ book “ was even published. Set in the 1980s so it doesn’t wash.... if it was historical 1780’s then I’d give it a pass. Boo!!
