Being a woman scorned is something I know well – too well if you ask me. I was nothing but a doormat for my fiancé, and after catching another woman in his arms I’ve had enough. I made sacrifice after sacrifice for him and now it’s time to take my life back.
I gave up so much for him, but the one thing I loved more than anything was field work. The FBI gave me purpose

I struggled with this one for a number of reasons and I will get to them in a minute.
And while this originally started off in such a great vein for me it quickly escalated into a bit of a mish-mash of splitting threads.
If I'm honest here I think maybe there was just too much going on for me to connect fully with the story being told.
Events themselves were skimmed over a lot and I feel this contributed to me failing to feel any profound connection with the relationship that was at the

*1.5 stars. I was enjoying the beginning and when Elena met Reed, but after that I sadly didn’t like anything /: i thought everything was to quick and had insta love. The story lacked character development I felt. I skimmed the last 50 percent basically.

Loved Elena & Reed's story. Wonderful characters. Couldn't get enough of these two. It had me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait for the next book in the series. I received a free copy of the book. And am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

I just love MC Romance books. I look for each and everyone that I can read. This was a great book. I found this one to be different. I have not read one that had a female for the president of the club. It was refreshing to me. I love how she did not put up with anyone's shit.

Elena finds out that her fiance is cheating on her with his secretary. She did not cry in her beer or eat herself to death. She just jumped into her work even more. I love

Reign is a quick MC story with some instalove and lots of hottie bikers. Yes, please!!
Honestly, the amount of typos and grammatical errors was very distracting to me. But it’s still a good read and I plan to keep reading the series, as I expect these books to keep getting better as better!

Elena is a FBI agent who gets assigned a task to go undercover and find out what Renegade Mc is up to and absolutely clueless that she will end up falling for the club's president.

Let's first start with the Cons of the book. At times i felt like Elena was a bit much and made me cringe a little in the beginning of the book when she first stepped in the bar. Another thing was I didn't see the relationship grow between Reed and Elena the first few weeks they were together so it was hard for me to

I enjoyed this book. it was a change from the typical MC book. having a female as a prez was refreshing and her chemistry with Reed was off the charts. the fact that she was a FBI agent was something that I didn't think Reed would get past but he blew all my thoughts out the water by how he dealt with it. It was pretty awesome having such a strong female leading character to go along with the strong male lead.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Regin by Elizabeth Knox is book One in the Skulls Renegade MC Series. This is the story of Elena and Reed.
Elena is a FBI agent who just broke up with a cheating fiancé. Elena is now just burying herself in her work and decided to go back in to field work. Elena used to love the field but her former fiancé had talked her out of it and became a FBI handler. Elena first assignment is to go undercover in the Skulls Renegade MC to undercover their illegal activities. But what she is finding is them

Reign is the first book in the Skulls Renegade series and is a good start to this new series.

This is more of an insta-love story for Reed and Elena but her past and secrets may rip them apart. I would have liked to see the relationship grow. The storyline is a good one, with an FBI agent working undercover in the MC.

I read and reviewed this book with no obligation. 3.5 stars

I just finished Reign (a Skulls Renegade Novel) book #1 in the series. And holy hot I loved it. I don't usually read MC books because they can sometimes be too dark and intense, but Reign was so well balenced! There were dark moments, wich I found intense but at the same time there were so many funny, sweet and dirty moments The story did escalade quickly but I loved that, it made it more real and I couldn't help getting sucked into the storyline. I CAN'T WAIT for Daisy's story in Redemption

Literally read this book in a day! I could not put it down except to sleep and write myself, but was straight back to it when I could! It was fast paced with characters that are so easy to love and hate.

I cannot wait for book 2 and thanks for a brilliant introduction to MC romances Elizabeth Knox!

A HOT MC romance that will leave you wanting more. Elena is a FBI agent and has a new mission going undercover with the Skulls Renegade MC. There she meets the sexy MC Prez Reed and falls hard. A hot start to this series and I can't wait to see where this series will take us. Definitely recommend to anyone who loves a MC romance.

I absolutely loved this book and didn't want it to end!! I am a sucker for MC books and Elizabeth delivers a 5 star read! Elena is such a spitfire. I loved her character and how independent she was. Reed....sigh. He is all alpha male. The chemistry between the two is smoking hot. My kindle has steam coming from the screen. This is a must read and I can't wait to see what happens next!!

I'll admit, I was a little leary about reading this guy since it's from a new author, but I mean it was free. I mean, c'mon, FREE. So I gave it a shot, I read the amazon reviews which were all 5 stars and decided to download this guy and give it a shot.

And boy, was I glad I did!

Elizabeth Knox did a FANTASTIC job with character development. In the beginning of the book the strong willed, fiery Elena finds her fiancé cheating on her with his secretary (I mean that's a total jerk move right there)

I absolutely love MC Stories, and this is my first story to read by Elizabeth Knox, I didn't know what to expect, but I totally loved Reed and Elena story i couldn't put it down.

(Actual rating 2.75, this doesn't quite make it to 3 as it needs ALOT more, not just a little).

I really freaking struggled to rate this book! I was super excited for this book after reading the synopsis, it was set to be an absolute winner! Until it wasn't.

The epilogue was cracking, it identified the change, the event that set everything in motion. It was written well and grabbed you. I was seeing a 5-star book already! What was Elena going to do? How tough was she? So many questions were posed

Elena is an FBI agent who has given up everything for the man that she's engaged to and believes she loves and loves her. To Celebrate her fiancee's promotion, she shows up at his office with only a cup of coffee and only wearing a long dark coat. Instead of Celebrating, she enters into his office while he's banging his secretary. Elena immediately dumps him, and goes to her old handler asking for an assignment asap.

Her handler finds her a job, which brings her past and present together in an

Reign.... I adored the characters but the storyline was too much for me... I am all about MCs that protect and fight against evil. But the FBI storyline was so unreal that it brought the value of this book down for me. I read a majority of books in MC and Military suspense genres so when an author has an FBI agent go undercover then breaks cover it's not sunshine and roses, I am alot the creative mind but you have to some details that will actually happen in

***Received Review Copy through a blog tour hosted by Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review***

Normally I would gush over and over about a synopsis involving a woman uncover in a MC bar... just screamsmischievous and foul play of the sexual tension kind. However Reign did not deliver on the expectations I had thought...

At the jump, Reign started off on a cryptically delicious start. Elena catching her husband cheating definitely was a moment of excitement, really thought it

This is the first book in the series. I had agreed to review the newest release, Book 4 – and was provided the first three (squee!!)
First, there is a lot going on in this book. It moves quickly enough that you don’t get a true feel for all the characters involved.
Second, I get the whole FBI thing, but Elena lets us know she never follows her suggested under cover information that she’s given and then later goes on to change her relationship with the FBI of what she will and won’t do. I

So I've known and read Elizabeth's books since she started writing and I can never say enough about her! I absolutely love her writing style so much. There isn't a single book I've read so far that I didn't devour, and I can never find a single thing that I don't like about them. With that being said, I'm so sad I had to wait so long to start this series! This is the series that started her career and my blog life just really got too in the way for me to read this one until now. Knowing this was ...more

Oh my...Oh my...Oh My...

Let me start off by saying I love MC books. The bad boys and all just get you going in all the right places. Well in Reign we not only have bad boys but we have a kick@ss female character. Oh and how I love when the female character is just as bad@ss as the male ones and take $hit from no one. Elena was that chick...and I loved her to pieces.

Elizabeth Knox is a brand new Author to me and let me tell you I was not disappointed with this book at all. There is suspense,

Meeting Reed Michaels, the President of the Skulls Renegade MC is not what she imagined and soon she gains his trust and learns what the MC club is really about.

But when her past comes back and jeopardizes everything will Reed stand behind her or will he turn on her himself?

Sleeping with the Enemy?????

This story was a different kind of MC book. The writing style was also different than what I am familiar with. I needed more of a connection between Elena & Reed. All in all is was okay for me.

Elena Jacobson had it all. She was engaged to a man who just made partner at his firm and in less then 3 months they would say I do. Or not. She had taken a desk job to secure her future husbands worries about her working in the "field ". However that all changed when said

All those secrets she carries with her

Reign is the first book in the Skulls Renegade MC series. It is the story of Elena and Reed. She is an undercover FBI agent and he is the MC President. Let's just say that they are at opposites end of the legal spectrum but are still wildly attracted to each other. When Reed first sees Elena all he can think is "MINE" and they end up having a passionate night. But what was supposed to be only once turns into an ongoing thing and they become much more

This book was absolutely amazing. So many things happen to drive a wedge between the two main characters but nothing and absolutely nothing stops them from being together. I wouldn't say they have a relationship that's love at first sight but it was insta-lust. Sometimes you just meet that one person who no matter what you can't resist, you just click and that's exactly what happened.

I love how I got a feel of more than just the main characters in the book. We get a little back round knowledge

Reign by Elizabeth Knox. This is a first time read for me by author Elizabeth Knox. This series had me hooked and I loved the characters. Reign is the 1st book in the Skulls Renegade Series.

Hot holy hell. This book was just what I need in the hot steamy Romance Genre. Mixed with the compelling storyline of Biker and FBI I found the story to be comical, action packed and fueled with scenes to makes your panties drop.

It’s been awhile since I became engrossed in a novel I knew up front would be filled with steamy scenes. I am glad to be back and full throttled with the Skull Renegade series.

While the pace was quick often skipping ahead 3 weeks at a time, a full story was created while
