Government-trained autistic assassin protects his Club like no other.
Steve is the VP of the MC. He's autistic, talks funny—especially when stressed, and swears like a sailor. His mind works like a machine, focusing singularly on potential problems and clearing them with precision and stealth. Military trained as a SEAL, he was a satellite for his team, but rarely involved

Steve the NOT AUTISTIC biker, and Jess the blank slate.
DNF at about half way although I did skim ahead a bit to see 'what's what'. Very long and boring.
The author writes like a sports caster telling the 'play by play'. The prose is dry and repetitive with short perfunctory sentences.
Steve, the MC officer, is no more autistic than I am. I know a LOT of autistic people, and there is nothing about his speech or thought process that comes across as autistic. Gotta say, this REALLY PISSED ME OFF.

First read for me by this author, I love MC books but not this one. The writing is flat, I felt no connection to the characters, it's all telling and no showing. The Dom/sub theme was blah.
Add to that the often confusing storyline I was not impressed. The constant swearing was OTT, and the use of Kristen Ashley stock in trade phrases such as eyes to me, then there was the chin lift but here the author puts her own spin on it, as in"he throws her a chin" huh? . Thank goodness for Kindle Unlimited

I’m a member of a group of biker book lovers and several of the members were buzzing about the series. I was a little leery but I was told that it starts kind of slow but by the end they really fell into a little bit of love with the books. Me being me with my adoration of good biker books decided to give the series a shot.

I liked but didn’t love this installment. I can’t believe I’m saying this but it maybe had too much dialogue and too much detail. We would get the smallest detail on random st
I really wanted to like this book after reading the blurb and then the FYI at the start of the book.

I expected Steve to be the quiet type but what i got was "fucking jess" "fucking Pres" "fucking brothers" every couple of pages. I kinda got lost by the end in knowing who was who, who did what, and where they all worked etc.

I actually really liked the concept of this story and what it was setting up for the series. I liked the idea of a 1% MC getting into almost or even all legitimate business and including the old ladies in that. I really liked Knight and Jess but I kind of felt like I walked into the middle of something the way this book started out in the beginning. At first it felt like things were moving at warp speed but really they had been getting to this point for 3 years so it really wasn't as fast as it ...more

Loved Knight and Jesse. They are both damaged souls who heal eachother with love. Knight is a former military man who is also VP of the local MC. The MC is struggling to stay legit and not fall back into the seedy life. Jess is a single woman who has had a crappy life. She's been abused and abandoned most of her life. She waits a long time before she agrees to a date with Knight. The chemistry these two have is explosive. L. Ann Marie does a great job with the dynamics of the MC and the relation ...more

OMG I loved this book. Jess is so bad ass and funny I was laughing out loud and Steve (Knight) what a guy. He sees her and has asked her out for 6 weeks before she said yes. I am so glad she did. She had a really bad last relationship and trust is not something that comes easy to her, also she has a medical condition that has her living in pain every day. The chemistry from these two is brilliant they seem to support each other but alone they are capable of so much too. This was an unbelievable ...more

I liked this book and liked characters. The only problem I have with the books so far is the minor grammatical errors and short sentences. Sometimes I feel the author could use more grammar to increase the length of the sentences. This, for me, would make the books read better.

I liked the dominance of Knight and how Jess was instantly submissive but she is still such a strong character out of the bedroom! I like how the family is continuing to grow and the MC is cleaning up it's act. They have a

This is the first time for this author for me, not bad. The story line was fantastic, the sex was awesome and the characters where sexy. I enjoyed everything about this book, I am not really a biker fan but she has made me one. Steve and Jess are an amazing couple that go through their ups and downs like any other couple does and to live a life of drug running for the MC has changed thanks to Jess. she is a financial whiz. Their life is never dull.
Thnaks L. Ann Marie you have another fan...

I really liked the characters in this book and the storyline. It doesn't read as smoothly as some but it has more meat to the story than others though and I know after reading this it hasn't been professionally edited yet either so I'm giving it three stars and will definitely read book two.

Love Jess and Steve and their friends. The only thing that could make their kids any cuter would be reading them with animals.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

an mc trying to make clean money finds a financial wizard in a club officer's new woman. the rest is all mc soap opera. reread this date. and still an enjoyable read. Re-read for the fourth time in april, 2017. Lots of sex, violence, foul language , love, friendship, loyalty and laughter. Re-read Sept in 2018. Enjoy this book

I absolutely loved this story!! There was so much in one book that you actually get to see the character growth and progression! Oh the boys Jessie and Ben stole my heart and can't wait to find out what happens when they grow up. Love this authors writing style and ideas!! Can't wait to read more!

I am having trouble rating this book. I give it a 4 because I like the strong characters, I would give it a 2.5-3 for the plot though. It wasn't that the plot was bad. It was just that I felt there was also some kind of drama. The plot for me wasn't explained and thought out. It was just event after event and no real down time to just enjoy the characters and the environment around them.

3.5 I did enjoy this book however it often got quite confusing and I found myself having to read passages over and over not always getting it. Steve's dialogue got a bit annoying as it was far too repetitive. Great storyline, held my interest.

Not bad

Good book, not the baxters but good. I agree with another reviewer that said sometimes it feels like I'm supposed to be a mind reader and know what the author is talking about. A lot of information is thrown out there and it gets confusing at times

Really great book. Actually the whole 4 series are great. Don't get me wrong it could use more editing but it's worth over looking because the content and depth of the stories are so good. These are all defiant E must reads in my opinion the story unfolds getting better and better.

Very enjoyable first book!
Slightly stilted writing but a darn good book. MC with a difference they have moved beyond running drugs and guns as they lost too many brothers to others greed. Using the money they have gained they pump it back into their local community making it a drug free zone where everyone wants to move.

Jess is the buttoned up receptionist from work, Steve has been talking to her for three years, in the last 6 months he has asked her out on a date and she has refused, this time

Mc:Knight :Book list

I love this book and hope there was more star to add .a lover of mc books this is one I will read again .I love ever thing about these males and the treatment of there women club and family .for a first mc book freaking amazing brilliant story telling I will put you on my reading list as favourite author and add the next book to my read list
I love this story and I love the main characters Steve and Jess. It's different in a good way. Some spelling and grammar issues and a lot of periphery characters that got confusing at times, but the main and secondary characters were well developed.

Sadly, after looking at the synopses for succeeding books I won't be continuing with the series.

The book starts with Jess and Steve (M.C. VP) going on their first date. They've known each other for 3 years and he's been asking her out for 6 months. A

I first started by reading MC: Knight and then realised that I wanted the whole story and that started with the Baxter's .. although the first books didn't have a lot of crossovers they did set the scene for what is to come in the other books as the stories move along so their importance to the series' as a whole cannot be overstated

I have just read the 22 books to date back to back in the order published on the author's website and decided to review them as a whole. I really don't think they st

Re-read the entire MC and Protectors series between June and August. Since I'm re-reading, I'll up the rating on this one from a 3 to a 4. I love her storytelling and characters but sometimes the prose (and particularly the conversations) is a little dense and hard to get through. But I'm back again because the guys, the gals, the kids are all SO GREAT! If you bought this a while ago and are just reading it, download a new copy from Amazon because I think a lot of them have been updated on the e ...more

What an awesome book this is! I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. It's definitely the beginning of a great series.

Steve Knight is one sexy man! He's the V.P in the MC, 6'3, tattooed, a soldier, fair businessman, he's loving, protective, honorable, and everything else there is to love.

But he's no saint. He will kick ass when he needs to when he feels like the people he loves are in danger. He's not much of a talker do to the heavy crap that he's dealt with in his youth, and as an adult.

There was much I liked about this book and much I didn't. The story was good and the characters had interesting background history, I just didn't care for the D/s thing and found the writing style a bit hard to get into. The sentences were choppy, short and a lot of the expressions seemed to be a bit repetitive but I finished the book anyway. It was free when I got it and it seems like the books were re-published since I got them so my purchase does not show verified.

I got this book free some months ago, but never got around to reading it. Big mistake!!!!!!!! I don't as a rule read MC books. They're just not what I like to read. I was hooked first paragraph. I couldn't put it down. I downloaded all I could with Amazon unlimited, will finish as I read and then on to the next series. All emotions are covered beautifully but what really drew me was the totally different concept of the book. So refreshing, not like any other books I've read. I can't find the
