Audio – 5 ++ stars for Kirt Graves’ performance!
Story – 4 Stars

I don’t really care much for motorcycle club themed romances these days because there are few things about the culture that I find offensive as a woman. But I can’t resist this series because when it comes to the romance, I’m totally convinced that the couples (in this case the trio) are made for each other.

I liked how Wrench (Ty) struggled with is feelings for Po’Boy (Lewis) and how the romance wasn’t only about the heroine, Crissy.

Well to say that I totally enjoyed this book so much more than book one really hurts me because I loved Twisted and Penny's story! They are fucking fabulous! Po'Boy, Wrench and Crissy...OMG! I absolutely fell in love with all three characters!

To feel the need to hide who you are from the people who are supposed to love and accept you, no matter what, is such a sad, hard and scary thing to do. Thing is I totally felt like both clubs would have not

Anyone who loves MC stories with character depth and lots of hot action will love Treading the Traitor’s Path: Out Bad by MariaLisa deMora. The book starts with Po’Boy (Ralph Lewis) working to get information from a source and being called a traitor. Later, he is so afraid of losing the MC life he loves and the people he loves because of his secrets. If discovered, his secrets will put him “out bad”, shunned by all.
This story is about acceptance of who we are, where we come from, and what we hav

This is such a brilliant series and I really can’t decide which of the first two books I’ve enjoyed most. Po’boy, Twisted’s lifelong best friend and second, was wonderful in the first book and he’s even better in his own story. When Twisted finds his HEA with Penny, Po’boy finds himself adrift as he is forced to confront the nature of his feelings for Twisted - and other men.

Twisted is President and leader and Po’boy has his back - even when it forces him to do the unthinkable, to live with gho

I liked this second book a bit better than the first one. The M/M/F aspect is one I prefer so this was right up my alley. Besides the m/m aspect, I felt like the author might have had a stronger connection with the characters as a throuple then she did with Twisted and Penny as a couple in the first book.

I liked the realistic way that everyone felt each other out, afraid to step out of the dark. Including Ace, Twisted, Retro, etc.... I did not like the way Crissy just blurted stuff out without

I gave this book 4.5 Stars!!

Holy Amazballs!!! I thought I love Twisted and Penny story, I have to say they still own a piece of my heart and mind but Po'Boy, Wrench, and Crissy have took up a bigger piece of my heart and mind. I don't want to give to much away, because I wont others to enjoy their story like I did, so I will keep it simple. This book is a page turner. From the beginning I couldn't turn pages fast enough to see what was going to happen n

Sooooooo addictive!

This might be Twisted's enigmatic sidekick's story, but in true MariaLisa deMora fashion, Po'Boy's portrait is shallow and indistinct on face value - a play of shadow and light that only comes into true focus through the development of the two characters that make him whole. Crissy captures the heart of slick, detached Lewis with one humbling plea that takes her from vulnerable girl to a strong woman asking for what she wants and knowing she can handle what she gets: "Please l

OMFG! This is MariaLisa deMora's HOTTEST book written. I expected so many great things with this book and what was delivered went BEYOND my expectations. I have never been so turned on while reading a book.

I mean, I anticipated the sensational MC lifestyle that this author is notorious for as well as how exquisite her writing is...but this story outdid every previous book of hers that I've read.

We met Po'Boy in This is the Route of Twisted Pain and I immediately was intrigued. Now in Treading the Traitors Path, I've become utterly fascinated by him. Learning his story and him meeting his person / persons brought so much to his story.
I just didn't want to put it down. Life got in the way, having to force myself too, didn't really put me in a good mood. But once settled, I was able to read more and nothing stood in my way to finish this.

MariaLisa deMora took me on a ride to a place I wasn't expecting to go. She didn't pull her punches and I left myself wide open. In spite of having read her previous books, knowing to expect the unexpected... she gets me every time. That's why I keep coming back for more. I love it.

I met Po'Boy in This Is The Route Of Twisted Pain. He and Twisted were in school together. They've had each other's back for years. I learned some of his story in that book, but there are some thing

Ok I have to say this review was totally unexpected in the way that I had started this book and I couldn't pass the first few pages.
I honestly don't know why but I couldn't get into this book (Lovers of this book don't hate me just yet I have good things to say about this story).
MC books are not my usual go-to genre, however I was drawn to the synopsis and was in desperate need to get my hands on this book. I was lucky to have been given the opportunity to receive an ARC.

What did I just read?! Is my kindle still working? I'm pretty sure it combusted into flames while reading this story. RED HOT READ for 2017. Not what I was expecting at all!
I tend to stay away from ménage a trois, because for me it's hard to say there's any kind of conflict except for jealousy, and the ending kind of leaves things unresolved and unrealistic. NOT THIS BOOK! The best one out there guaranteed.

So, I have seriously no words. I have read this authors books before, but seriously this series is just WTF so freaking good

Dark, Twisted, harsh, painful and raw. Po'Boy lives for his club, his brothers and his family, there is nothing he wouldn't do for them.
I love how detailed each character's story was and it made you actually feel like you are living there past with them.
Each one has their own story, but what amazes me is how they each come together.

What a ride! This book was fantastic. I absolutely love Po'Boy, Wrench and Crissy! I loved getting to know Po'Boy in Twisted's book and I wanted more and boy did I get it! The relationship between the three is dynamic and powerful. You can truly see how the three former a cohesive unit. The way they come together throughout the course of the book shows you the deep love that they have for each other.

Po'boy, Wrench, and Chrissy's story is full of angst, drama, action, and plenty of heat.

This is the second book that I read from this author and the second in this MC series and I have to tell you that I totally enjoyed this book. The relationship between these characters is amazing, not only the personal, sexual relationship, but the bond that they develop that is more deeply seated than most "brothers" in a MC, and that is because it is deeper. Add to the mix, the beauty that is the one who grounds them, the glue in their relationship and you have not only a hot MC read but a sto ...more

Just like her previous book This Is The Route Of Twisted Pain, MariaLisa deMora took me on another wonderful journey. A journey of acceptance and love. Every time I read a book by this author I’m left feeling emotionally satisfied.

We learned a little bit about Po’Boy in this book. I knew his past was dark but I was glad to learn more about his harsh past. What I didn’t know was just how painful and raw it would be. The club, his brothers and his family are his prior

Po’Boy is going through a lot in his life. He holds a secret that can destroy everything he loves. I especially loved his character. I felt like the author wrote him with such depth that it literally felt like I was sharing his same feelings if that makes sense. I loved how good of a friend his character was to his best friend. Crissy's character was fun and full of spunk. I like

I have been wanting to read Po’boy’s story since first reading him in book 1 and I wasn’t disappointed, this book and his story was so much more than I could have hoped for. I couldn’t put it down, the chemistry between Po’boy, Wrench and Crissy was off the charts and their story sees a lot of emotion and acceptance for their relationship.

The story is effortlessly told from the three main characters point of view. The characters are complex, and believable, I enjoyed getting to know them. My emotions were all over the place while reading this. I smiled, got angry, cried, and held my breath in anticipation. While this is the second book in the series, I think it can read as ...more
This is my Confession: Its no secret that I am a fan of both MariaLisa deMora AND a good MMF romance...keyword here is romance. In my experience while the MMF is def there the romance aspect usually isnt. Now, if you are a fan of raw sex and the itimacy of unconditional love in a triad? Well my friends...deMora DELIVERS!
