My plan was as simple as they come… in theory. Show up at the Cerberus clubhouse and give dear old Dad a piece of my mind. What I didn’t expect was being welcomed by the open arms of a father who had no idea I existed.

More importantly, I didn’t anticipate HER. Delilah Donovan was a breath of fresh air. She would soon become my reason for wanting to become a better man, my

An excellent reason to add Cerberus MC 1.0 to my TBR!

Lawson was my first Marie James read. She's been on my radar for a while, but it's hard to jump in mid-series when you don't have time to catch up. When I saw that Lawson was the first book in a new series, I was excited to finally see what all the fuss was about. Now I know. This new series is the 2nd generation, but I got to meet some of the parents and it only reinforced my determination to go back and read the first generation series fro

This is how a second generation story is done!

After the ending of Snatch, I couldn't wait for this book and it did not disappoint.

Lawson shows up on Jax and Rob's doorstep with his 13 year old brother. Their mom has passed away, but before she died she finally told Lawson about his dad. With a huge chip on his shoulder, the open arm welcome is not what he is expecting and not something he trusts. Then he spots a reason to maybe stick around - Delilah. Life is suddenly looking up for the boys wh

Wow. While i'm no stranger to Marie James' books or her Cerberus series, Lawson was my first read from it. Nothing like i thought it would be, Lawson definitely gave me butterflies in my belly, reminding me that first loves are like and how they can affect you - whether in a good or bad way.

I was really sad when the Cerberus MC series ended, but I was so excited that it was getting a spin-off. When I found out that Lawson started the second generation, I was elated! I could not get enough of the Cerberus men and now we get their children!!!! Lawson was everything that I had hoped for in a spin-off book. We had just the right amount of angst, happiness, sexiness and every other emotion under the son. I loved learning more about the children of the men, and the dad in this book was o ...more

Holy fudgeballs what a start to the 2nd generation of the Cerberus MC family, when I finished Snatch my first thought was wowzer (censored version) what a way to finish then it was excitement overload thinking about what was to come and trust me Lawson didn’t disappoint.

When Lawson turned up at the Cerberus clubhouse it’s fair to say he had a chip on his shoulder after all he was going to see his father for the first time in

Absorbing and poignant love story.....

I have been so excited about this spin off series but also slightly nervous...could this series, about the next generation , live up to it’s addictive predecessor ...of course there was no requirement for angst..this is a fast moving, thrilling romance that held me enthralled throughout...

This author knows how to build believable worlds with characters that are not only realistic but also have great depth....Delilah and Lawson are the focus of this particula

Marie James did a great job on this story. The book was well written. I couldn't put it down. The book was filled with different emotions. It kept me on the edge of my seat. Lawson and Delilah are both great strong characters. Lawson has been through a lot in his life. Lawson comes to the club to find his father. He didn't expect to meet Delilah. The connection between them is strong. Lawson and Delilah are perfect together. The chemistry is off the charts. But Lawson makes a decision that break ...more

I was drawn into the story from the beginning.

Lawson and Delilah made the next generation so appealing. The glimpse into the past was a great reminder of what shaped their futures.

I am excited to see what the rest of the kids are up to now that they are grown.

Exceptional read. Great storyline that is well written with it's ending of one story and the beginning of another story. Granted, I haven't read the previous story in the original Cerberus MC before beginning the next generation, however it didn't throw me off at all. I loved the story and did enjoy seeing where Rob and Jaxon were in their lives, as I had read their story. But it's the children's story that comes to the forefront as Jaxon meets the son he never knew he had and that son, Lawson, ...more

It's no secret that I love every single book written by this amazing girl and the more I get to read, the more I want to read.
And putting that love with my obsession with MC books I know that I strike gold.
Marie James has a intense, beautiful and raw writing that will hook you up from the first page and you will not be able to look back or stop. You will be consume by the plot and will only want to keep reading and reading.
Lawson is her latest release and tells the stories of Lawson and Delila

The new book by Marie James, that just so happens to be the next generation of the Cerberus MC, was such a great kick off to a new series. It allowed me to revisit with characters and couples I grew to love in the 1st generation and let's me meet all new people to love.

In this story we have Lawson and Delilah. The long lost son that one of my favorite Cerberus couples knew nothing about, and the adoptive daughter he can't keep off his mind.

I enjoyed the building of the relationship between thes

Lawson and his brother watch their mother die. He is determined to tell his dad off and when they arrive at the Cerberus Clubhouse, he finds more than he bargained for. The family he always needed, some truths about the past and a love that will never end. Delilah is it for him but when Drew’s family comes to get him, Dawson knows he has to go with him. He leaves Delilah behind and it’s the hardest things he has ever done. 2 years

4.5 amazing stars! Another exciting page turner from Marie James!! I absolutely adored Delilah and Lawson right away. Lawson didn't have an easy life growing up and when he suffers a horrible loss he turns to family he didn't even know he had. And then he sees Delilah and he's a goner. Fast forward two years.....will he be able to earn her love and forgiveness? Will her past ruin everything? *Shivers* Can hardly wait to read more of this series!!

This is part of a series, I know this says its book one, but it's book one of the spin off and for this to make any sense the previous books should be read. At the end of Snatch's story he gets a surprise, a bouncing baby boy, its just 18 years too late. Lawson was desperate when he showed up on his sperm donor's doorstep, he had his brother, Drew, to think about and they were hungry. Seeing that his father has a family and that they have more than Drew and Lawson eve

Lawson and his little brother Drew lose their Mom and head to find Lawson's Dad. Cerberus Club house is where his mother told him he would find his Dad. Jaxson doesn't even blink an eye at giving both boys a place to stay and tells Lawson that when or if he leaves that Drew gets to stay.

As with life, our beautiful, hot MC men from Cerberus also grow up and have families of their own. However, never did we expect that Jaxon would suddenly come face to face with a child he never new existed.

A great start to the next generation. This is Lawson Ana Delilah’s story. It will have you feeling all sorts of emotions and it sucks you in from the beginning with its twists and turns. The connection and chemistry between them is sizzling and hot. Looking forward to reading more. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

If you read Snatch, then you absolutely know why I couldn't wait for Lawson. If you haven't read Snatch yet, then you completely should (because it is THAT good) , but it isn't necessary to read it prior to reading Lawson. 

I was reading a meh cowboy romance before starting this and was wondering if I was hitting a book slump because I kept starting and stopping different books. Then this showed up and I abandoned the cowboy romance and couldn't put this down. Then I read the last senten

After his mother informs him who his father is, on her deathbed,  Lawson arrives at Cerberus MC,  full of attitude and with a huge chip on his shoulder. He has no desire to form any sort of relationship with his dad, who has been absent his whole life. His only intention is to make sure his younger brother has a stable home before he takes off to do his own thing.

However, he finds himself falling for Delilah, his dad's adopted daughter, and can't help stirring things up by talking dirty to her a

Hello Lawson, you are just as angry as your Dad was when he was younger and you are just as sexy too. When Lawson meets his father for the first time all the anger that he has towards this man is all unjustified but it will take him trusting not only his father but the Cerberus MC to see that all was not as he was told.

Loved this second generation series as much as the original. It was filled with a wide range of emotions from crazy funny highs to gut wrenching lows. Lawson and Delilah show opposites attract but it can be a rocky road paved with good intentions. Getting to read about old friends from the original series made it that much better. Definitely 5 stars from me and I can't wait to read the next one.

If you are a fan of the Cerberus MC, you definitely want to check out the next generation! Lawson was the surprise arrival in the epilogue of Snatch. Angry is a term that fits Lawson. Armed with a plan and a whole lot of attitude, he shows up on his father's doorstep. Being welcomed definitely throws him off his game. Enter Delilah and the game changes completely this time. Can "kids" from very different backgrounds come together as adults? Great start to the series!!

Marie James can write MC books!!! I have loved the whole Cerberus series so far. Lawson starts the next generation of MC men for us to drool over. I did feel like this book started off a little slower than some of the other books that so awesomely bring us the heavy drama and craziness that only Marie James can deliver. I had a harder time connecting with the characters than in some of the other books in the series, but the story picked up part way through and is a great start to this second gen ...more
