When you’re married, there are the things you can live with… and the things you can’t.

My abusive husband, Harry? He made those distinctions very clear to me.

Constant beatings, a forced a miscarriage, and then roping me in with my father’s notorious biker gang, The Reapers.

Lucky enough, I got out of my marriage in one piece. For the time being, that is. Though it’s o

I was intrigued by this blurb and excited to read this book. Unfortunately the actual story let me down some and I didn't enjoy it as much as I hoped I would. There were parts that left me confused and needing to know more details, yet those details never came. By the end of the story I still didn't feel a connection between Ashley and Rob/Blackjack, and I actually didn't feel like I even knew either of them at all. I may give this series another try since there were some characters I would actu ...more

Okay biker romance

2.5 stars rounded up
I thought this started out good, I like seeing a woman take control of her life and get away from an awful man. I'm glad Ashley was able to find help with her family and the Reaper club and begin to heal.

The backstop of Ashley and Blackjack was not well developed and we only got a tiny blip of information about them before. I would have liked their story to be fleshed out more than them just jumping into a marriage.

I also thought the drama with Harry and

I love when I can find another good MC book and this author gives me what I need. I am not the greatest at writing reviews and as some reviews have stated they dislike the book due to errors and they didn't like the story or something else. I loved this book. I have come across books that I didn't care for and was easily lost but I guess I am someone who can keep up with a story no matter what directions they take. That must be my extreme multi-tasking I do on a daily basis.

I thought from the first chapter that this one would suck me in but it just did not. An MC Princess that gets an attitude with members, prospect or not, would never fly. Especially when she is showing up for the first time in years and has never even met them before but expects them to treat her like a Queen and know exactly who she is by looking at her.

Blackjack was attracted to Ashley from their first meeting but she was too young and experienced for a man like him so he decides to avoid temptation by enlisting in the military. He has recently come back to his hometown and the MC when Ashley crashes into his life but after all she has experienced she is not the woman he remembered.

Elizabeth was willing to take the punishment her husband was happy to give out but when he threatens her father and the Reapers, the only people she truly cares abo

This is the first book I have read from this author and let me just say this will NOT be the last. . What an intriguing, consuming book! Oh my…this author surprised me in such a good way.

The beginning was a little slow for me but by the time I got to the end of this book, I was loving it! Some very angsty moments.

I've been in a book funk and this book pulled me out. I was hooked from the beginning and devoured the book.

I loved the dynamic between the two characters. He was her savior at a very unpleasant time in her life. And they have loved one another for so long. I loved seeing these two work through their past mistakes with one another.

Now the reason I only gave it 4 stars and not 5... There's quite a few errors within the book which I normally overlook and it didn't hinder my reading but there were

Man, this book. I don't know how I feel. I liked it but at the same time was upset that it didn't really didn't do it for me? I SERIOUSLY want to find a good MC series where I just can't help but dive right into the second book and then the third and just whip through them because I love the characters so much! But it seems that is a false hope because I've now started and finished the first book of three MC series and just don't have the desire to finish.

Blackjack is the first book in the Reapers MC Series by Elizabeth Knox. It was my first read from this author and I was very much looking forward to this book. The blurb had me very intrigued and I had high hopes. It didn't hurt that the cover was hot as sin as well. But from the moment I started reading this book I felt I was missing something, I was very confused throughout parts and wanting more details but not getting it. I was left feeling disconnected from the story.

A captivating read from beginning to end! An exciting storyline that leaves you breathless wanting more! Sexy steam filled chemistry! Emotionally heartfelt, enjoyable and fun! One heck of a twisted, intense rollercoaster ride! An amazing must read!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is the second chance romance of Ashley and Blackjack. She’s just escaped from her abusive husband. When Blackjack sees her again, it’s all he can do not to go after her ex and repay him for the damage he’s done to Ashley. I enjoyed the chemistry between these two and how the MC supported them. I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Elizabeth Knox goes dark...and I like it. Poor Ashley can't catch a break with her abusive husband. Running back home to her roots. She falls back into Blackjack's strong arms. Will they finally get the chance to be together or will her husband ruin it all? A dark, twisted MC romance. ...more

Ashley is the Reapers MC princess. She marries Harry and moves away from her MC family. Harry is a piece of crap so when she gets the chance to leave she runs back home.
Things from there get interesting, while she back home she recconnects with Blackjack.
The connection between the two has been their since they were younger.
This book is extreamly well written, it's action packed, the sex scences are hot and most importantly is full of sinfully sexy Alphas!!

Book has a great story line. Book needs to go through some editing. Ashley was not the damsel in distress although the family kept trying to make her one.

This would deserve a higher rating, but the number of spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, tense changes (even within the same sentence), and just overall repeating exposition nightmares made it a difficult read. It almost felt like the author opened a thesaurus to come up with description words, not bothering to double check if they actually made sense with what they were describing. Saying that blood on a man's forehead was "corrosive" makes no sense.

Not the worst

The characters were one dimensional. The characters had a personality but if they were funny that was it. There was no back story, there was no soft side, no tough side, nothing.
There was no chemistry between the main characters. They were barely in the same building together let alone talking to each other. There was no romance. Don't even get me going on how they finally started their relationship.
Plot definitely has potential. The whole book has potential but it is like the aut

Editor please!

This book is in desperate need of an editor. My biggest pet peeve is mistakes and this book has tons of them. This could’ve been a decent read, the potential was there, it just missed it’s mark. MC’s are a favorite if mine so I might judge them a little more harshly than others, but this one was missing a strong dose of realism. Again it tried and came close but ultimately missed its mark.

Didn’t quite make it

The plot had great potential, however the execution was way off. A lot of it I felt didn’t match up with the story or was just plain too much. The author seriously needs to use beta readers on future books, plus editors because there was a ton of grammatical errors.

This book was disorganized, lacked consistency and wasn't proofread before being published. Words were missing. Sentences didn't make sense. There were different facts throughout the story that just abruptly changed. I didn't even finish this book. I got it from kindle unlimited subscription. Very disappointed. ...more

Needs a proofread and editing

While the story was good the lack of proofreading/editing was very distracting and sometimes confusing. I had to re-read sentences several times to try and figure out what the author was trying to say.

Needs some work

There are a lot of grammatical errors that make this a difficult read. The scenes are sketchy. The story line is a good one and it was what made me read to the end. I may read the second book just to see if the writer has improved her skills.

The Reapers MC series is a must, if you like action packed romances with scenes that will break your heart one minute, heal it on another, and then make your toes curl the next.
Elizabeth can write the hell out this type romance and Blackjack is proof.
In the first book of this series, we meet Ashley who is in a terribly horrific circumstance involving her abusive husband. When things go from bad to worse, threatening from a rival MC to take down her Pops - she knows that she has to return home.

Let me start by saying that Elizabeth Knox has written an emotional book that unfortunately many women can relate to. The readers knew that as the book went on that at least two things were going to happen and by the end both had happened.

What took away from the book for me is the age difference between the hero and heroine. I just cannot get into a book where there is more than a ten-year age difference. That is just a personal preference of mine, so when I got to that part my interest waned a
