They call me the Devil’s assassin. It’s true. I have blood on my hands.
As the VP of the Serpents, my life is driven by loyalty, honor, brotherhood.
Until I see her.
Too young, too innocent. Mine to claim.

What I am, what I do, can never reach her. My dark secrets are scars I bear alone.
I’m torn between my duties and the woman I’ll die to protect.
Until...they try to take

Clipped Wings is every single thing I love about reading. Everything. I was so lost inside of this book that when I finally came up for air I couldn't remember what year it was. It's that good. I thought Jake held my heart, I was wrong. Dom holds my heart in a steel trap! Betty Shreffler gives you a real, gritty, bloody, and crude look into the MC world with Clipped Wings. So much stuff going on around Dom and Erika I honestly had no clue who to trust. Things got bloody. Things got sexy. Things ...more

Absolutely incredible read!!

I was completely hooked!
Erika and Dominic are now in my list for top book couples!! Such an electric and passionate relationship!...... every woman dreams of an alpha male taking care of them like Dom does with Erika!

Such a dark MC with lots of twists and turns that leave you feeling every emotion under the sun! Betty has created a masterpiece with this book!

Dom, Oh, Dom. What have you done to me? Ruined me, I tell ya. Completely ruined me. Y'all this book. I don't even know where to start. Everything is still all jumbled in my head and I'm still stuck in a Dominic daze. I didn't think another alpha male could come in and jump ahead of Jake Fucking Castle for me but Betty showed me how wrong I was.

Betty has once again blew me away. She continues to surprise me with the characters she writes and the worlds she creates. She gives her characters depths

Clipped Wings was the first book that I have read by Betty Shreffler, but I’m so glad I started with this novel.

Although Clipped Wings is the second book in Betty’s MC Romance Series, it can be read as a standalone with its own HEA. Written in both POV, this story offers its readers lots of sexy times, angst and action.

Dom is your formidable alpha MC biker, he’s tough, rough and oh so sexy. As the VP of the MC Club he is the guy that will do anything for his brothers. This dirty talker will ge

Wow!! Absolutely an emotional read from Betty Shreffler. I cried at all the stuff that Erika has been through in her young life but at the same time, was in awe of how mature she was. Dom? Well what can I say about him! LOL He was perfectly written and I think I fell a little bit in love with him. The emotions, drama, intrigue, danger was all scripted to make the reader feel they were right there with the characters. It's dark, it's gritty and it's a book you want to make sure you have time to j ...more

First of all, I love Dom! What an amazing character! He may be the VP of the Serpents MC and not always follow the law, but the way that he takes care of and loves Erika, really makes him swoon-worthy and unforgettable.
And how can you not admire Erika and her strength? What she has and continues to go through because of her mother and sister, is sad. But she is determined to not follow in their footsteps and wants nothing more than to make something of herself and get away from the way her life

☆☆☆☆☆ Five Sparrow Stars ☆☆☆☆☆

You know you've got sucked in to a good action book when you want to go pack a glock and start shooting bad guys yourself. Lol! Betty Shreffler has outdone herself with Clipped Wings. I seriously got to the point where I read this book nonstop, making the real world fade away. My emotions were all over the place and couldn't stop reading. I loved every page of Dom and Erika's story! This is the type of book that no matter how bad a book hangover you're on, this book

Dom, is simply delicious. He's alpha AF, which I love. But I love how much he loves Erika...they're so perfect together! He's tough, he's dirty. He's loyal and hard.
I love him. I love how he thinks. I am equally enamored of Erika.
She's feisty, she's real.
But I love the connection that Dom & Erika have with each other. The instant chemistry is palpable.
They are, to state a cliche, perfectly imperfect together.

This is another home run for Betty Shreffler. I'm soooooo in love with this author and t
3.5 my Sparrow stars.

My first book by this author. I love MC and I have read a lot in all their beautiful colours from dark to rainbows.

Clipped wings contains a lot of sex, violence and cringe worthy scenes so it's definitely not in my rainbows category but also very typical for an MC read.

Dom definitely lives up to his name, he's alpha and dominant, he basically takes claim of Erika at first sight and she is it then for him.

Basically Erika lives with her sister and drug using mother. strugg
This is free right now on Amazon. I think the majority of readers who seek out these kinds of biker bad boy hero books with the younger virgin heroine will like this. Yes, I love those tropes too but the quality of writing I just couldn't get over. It's very sloppy. This book is a first draft book. It's a trend I see in a lot of these more smutty and 'dark' indie romances. The writing and story is similar to Giana Darling another author I just can't get over in terms of the bad writing.

4.5 hot as sin stars!! This is one hell of an MC book!!!

🖤 This is Dom and Erika’s story....

Erika~ my mom is a druggie who could care less about me, my dad is in prison, my sister is a drugged out whore (whom I love very much) and me, well I am a Virgin who got into college living in this god forsaken drug/party house. Life sounds great, huh?!?! Everyday is a battle until he notices me. My savior, the baddest biker of all....

Clipped Wings by Betty Shreffler is book Two in the A Kings MC Romance series. This is the story of Erika and Dom which is easily a standalone book.

But her sister had to allow a biker gang have their house that they live in this has opened Erika up to a bunch of tough bike men who keep hitting on her.

I've been on an MC kick lately and had been curious about Betty. She was a new author to me. So I decided I was going all in. Omg. I am so glad I did. This was one the best MC books I've read in a while. It contained every but of emotion one is capable of feeling with a heat factor of a million!

Dominic and Ericka couldn't have been more different. Dominic the big bad VP of the Serpents and Ericka the young virgin who does all she can to stay out of the trouble her mother and sister have unleash

Holy F*ck, my panties are soaked! Hot and sexy, Betty delivers a great 2nd book in the Castle of Kings. Dominic is Hot, Dangerous and yes you guessed it Sexy as f*ck! Ericka is sweet, innocent and pure, he should be nowhere near her. I'm so glad he dared!

Amazing! I couldn't put this book down & was drawn in from the very start. This dark MC was an emotional ride from the very start. It was packed with hot steamy sex, death, disloyalty, brotherhood, right, wrong & love for someone that makes you want to change your path in life for the better to protect the person you love. Dominic is the man of every women's dreams a total alpha wjo will protect his women no matter the cost. Erika & Dominic were truly ment to cross paths with each other. From th ...more

Amazing writing as usual, although I’m not an instalove kinda book lover, I did fall in love with Dom and Erika. Dom being the VP of the Serpants and Erika’s sister their plaything, there’s always a party at their house, always noticing each other but never interacting until a drunken bleep gets in the way... you have the instalove, the MC drama you’d expect also you get a snippet of Jake Bleeping Castle!!!! Happy reading :)

Raw. Dirty. Gritty. Those are the first few words that come to mind with this story. While Erika is young, she had to grow up in a hurry and Dom was with her every step of the way. I really love how these two played off of each other a lot. Dom, being the VP of his club gave him some leeway however things take a twisted turn. There were a lot of rough moments as Erika tries to navigate being in a relationship with Dom let alone living the way she was prior to him claiming her as his own. I reall ...more

This book by the wonderfully talented Betty Shreffler was absolutely fantastic.
The life the author pictured to the readers was harsh, raw and violent - in one word it was real.
Real in the meaning of not always rainbows and unicorns of what little girls dream of, but real when you know you have to fight for everything in your life, and there is absolutely not a single thing given to you on a silver platter. When the s**t hits the fan more often than not but you go on because you have to and thi

An awesome read! I have to say I loved this book. The beginning captivated me. The character Dom was mentioned in the first outing from the series so I was eager to see how his story would pan out and it seemed Ms. Shreffler had developed and intensified his character to mammoth proportions.
I loved Jake but I want Dom, he’s delicious. He’s another tough, do what I say, your my property now, alpha pig that gets your panties all wet. And he’s insatiable, if he tell his women to drop ‘em, there pa

What to say about this book. My oh my, Ms. Shreffler knows how to spin a tale that sucks you in and takes you for a ride. This one happened to take you on a ride on the dark side. With Dominic you get all the alpha maleness you would expect from the VP of a MC. Erika is a young girl in the middle of a terrible situation tha

In Clipped Wings Betty Shreffler gives us an MC romance with a little darkness to it. This is definitely the rougher side of MC romance. There were moments I had to set my Kindle down and give myself a moment to calm from what I read because it got pretty heavy. However it's absolutely a story you pick back up because you have to read more.

This story had insta-love and it had passion along with plenty of steamy moments. Erika and Dominic were certainly a hands on kind of couple. The story was in

Why I torture myself with these kind of trashy book is beyond me. I understand an author puts so much into a book but in my defense there is nothing in this book but sex. If one removes all the pages of sex ,this book is nothing more than 20 pages. I don't mind sex scenes at all but I want stories too and not have to skip 5 pages of sex to read next two pages of stories.

Wow!! another panty melting read from Betty Shreffler.
I need to catch my breath a minute and gather my thoughts before I review this book. Dominic has taken my breath away.

This book is so intense. It is emotional with romance, suspense, excitement and hot steamy sex.
Betty Shreffler's characters are strong, I was able to follow the storyline. What a fantastic read. It leaves you wanting more.
I would highly recommend this book.

I didn’t read book one in this series and that really made no difference for reading this book.
Spoilerish content to justify rating.
This H is obsessed with a n a l s e x!!! He even tells her he likes that better than her P! So if you don’t enjoy that in a book, you probably won’t like this one cause he adores it.

Erika fears her living environment since her older sister bought the Devil’s Serpent MC gang into their home. She’s not like Alee or their mother. Erika respects herself, studies like hell and doesn’t do drugs because she’s working her way out, not going through life on her back. She catches the eye of several members, including some young ones who believe club laws only apply if they get caught. They ha
