Demons On Wheels MC #4

Phenex's Retribution

Rate this book
They don’t call her Wonder Tongue for nothing, but Meghan Sanders longs to be more than a sweetbutt, cook, and bartender at Scotty’s Place – the posh strip club the Demons on Wheels MC owns. She wants Phenex. She’s held that secret in her heart, never daring to wonder if he felt the same way. Because if he knew her past, why would he want her?

Phenex, the Demons on Wheels MC Road Captain, finds it difficult to get close to anyone. A tragic event in his childhood keeps him emotionally closed and distant. When he accidentally uncovers something hidden in Meghan’s past, a stronger bond than great sex begins to form. He’s had a thing for this extraordinary woman for two years, but she doesn’t know that.

Can these two heal old wounds that hold their hearts captive, and find love with one another? Or is it too late?

Book 4 in this series is Phenex and Meghan's story. Meghan is a sweetbutt who is finding it harder and harder to be with the other members of the MC besides Phenex. She loves him but knows he doesn't think of her in those terms, so she keeps her feelings to herself. Phenex was burned once and doesn't want an old lady but there is something about Meghan that stirs feelings inside him he thought he wouldn't have again. There are also ghosts in both of their pasts and the danger is ramping up in the club. Will these two find their way to each other before it all hits the fan? I loved this book and stayed up late reading it. I liked that while there was some hot sex scenes, the sex wasn't overdone and we got a good story. Ravenna Tate knows how to keep her readers engaged in the books and I can't wait for the next one.

Life is seldom fair. Meghan Sanders knows this all too well. Her tragic past haunts her in ways no one knows. Although that past is a closely-guarded secret, she's convinced it gives her no chance for happiness. She's found a measure of peace and contentment at Scotty's Place as bartender, cook, and sweetbutt. She's cheerful, friendly, and upbeat. But there's one thing she wants more than anything, something just beyond her reach. Phenex is the club's Road Captain. He too has a past filled with horrors that few can even imagine. Although he's often an enigma wrapped in a riddle, somehow Meghan has a link with him that, at times, borders on the supernatural. But these two have been at cross purposes since they first met two years ago. Neither will admit their attraction to the other. Why? Can it really be that hard? As the past and hidden secrets come creeping out, they begin to affect both Meghan and Phenex. Add in hidden agendas and potential chaos surrounding Scotty's and the MC, and you have an incendiary mixture ready to burst into flames. The flashpoint appears imminent. How will Phenex and Meghan react? Can they put aside their pasts, their differences? Is there any trust left in either? That's what it will take. If Meghan and Phenex can't learn to trust and believe, how can they ever move forward? With the future of Scotty's and the MC in doubt, is it even possible for Phenex and Meghan to build anything? Will they chance it? Or will they remain forever in limbo, never knowing what might have been?

Ravenna Tate's incredibly talented. To give you some idea of her abilities, she's written an MC series that I love. I absolutely DO NOT knock anyone's choices when it comes to reading. But I'm not a fan of MC books. And every book in this series has been remarkable. The characters, storylines, and detailed descriptions of every aspect of the MC lifestyle give incredible insight and perspective that I've never before considered. There's intrigue, suspense, and, of course, erotic romance, throughout each book, including this one. I love the plots and settings. But what really makes this story special are Meghan and Phenex. Their shared traumatic pasts and the struggles each has to face trying to come to grips with them pulled totally unexpected emotions from deep within me. Their first meeting, their heartrending pasts, and their struggle to move forward against incredible odds, all set against the backdrop of ongoing life and conflict at Scotty's and in the MC, all captivated me. It's like Ms. Tate knows exactly how to grab a reader's heartstrings in ways you never expect. The pain, tension, uncertainty, joy, fear, potential for love, and ultimately the care and warmth of the MC family are real. The relationships in this book are what hooked me, none more so than Meghan and Phenex's. I give Phenex's Retribution five stars. This is another great book in a series that's surprised me in many ways. Thank you, Ms. Tate, for another look through the windows into this intriguing lifestyle!

One final note. Please be an informed reader and consumer! This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language and sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy this genre, think hard before buying any book you know you won't enjoy. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. Use these resources. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. It's not fair to the author! She works extremely hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice.

Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!

When Meghan Sanders showed up at Scotty's Place she finally felt at home and safe. And it wasn't long until she earned the name Wonder Tongue. But of all the men at the club none compared to Phenex. The more time she spends with him, the more she wants him and only him.

Rick "Phenex" Gucwa gave his heart to someone years ago and quickly learned that is the biggest mistake he could have made. And now that time has passed, there is one woman that calls to his heart like none before.

Will Phenex be able to finally ask Meghan to be his and put his past in his rearview mirror? Will Meghan finally be able to reveal a long held secret and embrace a future with Phenex? Will they be able to have any kind of future with the danger that is surrounding the club? Or will their secrets and impending club danger force this would be couple apart forever?

Phenex's Retribution is thrilling, stunning, sexy read about having the courage to take a second chance at love.

The connection between Meghan and Phenex is phenomenal and only intensifies as the story progresses. I love how they can read each with just a look, words aren't needed. You can tell just how deep that connection is with Phenex's reaction to Meghan being hit.

Both have been hurt in the past and has caused them to build walls around their hearts. But despite all that, they open up to each other completely and that is extremely heartwarming.

Of all the books in this series so far I'd had to say this is my favorite. The passion, love, and friendship contained within the pages is endearing. I really loved this book so much couldn't put it down and I'm looking forward to what's coming next.

This series just keeps getting better and better and I highly recommend you pick up these Demons and let them take you for a ride that will make you weak in the knees and satisfied beyond belief.

This is the fourth book in Ravenna Tate’s Demon on Wheel’s MC series. And while you could probably read this as a stand-alone, you would be much better off reading the entire series from the beginning in order. Otherwise, you would miss the ongoing story arc.
Phenex, aka Rick Gucwa, is the Road Captain of the Demons on Wheels. He’s also got a big crush on bartender and sweetbutt (sorry, but that name makes me cringe.) Meghan Sanders aka Wonder Tongue. (Again, cringing) Meghan has earned this nickname because of what she can do with her tongue. (You don’t need me to explain that right?) But Meghan would also prefer to be with just Phenex. The problem with these two is that neither of them will communicate that fact with each other.
Meghan has an ex that is in jail doing time for armed robbery, but he belongs in there for far worse for what he’s done to her. It’s when we get her full story that we actually feel bad for her and start to ignore the fact that she’s been with the other members of the MC as well and it makes her more human.
Of course, club business is still going on, and a new threat to the club means changes may be coming that none of them are too happy about. For now, they are still run by mob boss Donny, and that means when a bit of violence needs to happen, well...it does. If you are expecting a hearts and flowers romance here, then look elsewhere. This is a raw, gritty portrayal of life in an MC and a strip club.Ravenna seems to have an inside look, even if it isn’t always pretty and wrapped up with a bow, it can be quite steamy

This fourth book in the series is just as good, if not better, than the first three. This book is about Phenex (Rick) and Wonder Tongue (Meghan) were attracted from the time they first met each other, but Phenex just came off of a toxic relationship and rejected Meghan's declaration of interest in pursuing a relationship of their own. Both of them came from a traumatic past that not many knew about. Now they realized that they really did like each other more than the best friends they had become but didn't know how to tell each other.
The story tells us of how the relationship progresses through some difficulty at the club. I love the politics within the club and how Ravenna takes us through the ups and downs and finally get us to an HEA. Can't wait for the next book!

In this book we connect with Phenex and Meghan (wonder tongue). Phenex is the MC's road captain and Meghan is the clubs sweetbutt, cook and bartender. Meghan has strong feelings for Phenex but is unsure of his feelings. She is hesitant to put herself forward due to tragedy in her past. Phenex has feelings for Meghan but feels the time for admitting this may be past due to a relationship that did not go well a few years ago. I love how they book works through this story line even though the MC is still having problems with a rival MC. By the end of the book I was eager for the next to see what will happen to the MC in the future.

Phenex’s Retribution by author Ravenna Tate is the fourth book in the Demons Wheels Mc series. I have not read this series in order and I was not lost. I there are characters you can tell are from other books in there but if you don’t know them it is totally fine.
This book has the story of Megan and Phenex.
These bikers are rough, the language used reflects that as well. Very gritty in both what they do and the language they use. I found it added to the authenticity of the storyline itself.
Megan is known in the biker gang as wonder tongue. She has horrible pains in her stomach from nerves. She works as a bartender and in the kitchen for the gang.
She is a tough but sweet character. She knows her job, she pulls her weight, but she needs love too.
She needs someone to say enough for her cause she tries to take on way too much otherwise.
Phenex he is round around the edges to say the least. He has had an extremely hard life. I found though he has deep feelings. He has a lot of love to give to the right woman.
Together these two make a great couple they each balance the other out in some way. I found them to have really great chemistry as well.
I also would love to know more about the bikers and the world they live in. I cannot wait for more.
When you want a gritty romance with a ton of heat in it I would pick this one up. Great series I can highly recommend.
