Hell Ryders MC officer Bryce “Ripper” Knight never knew love until he met Em. Then she disappeared and he was lost. Now, years later, her cousin—a rival club leader—needs him to find her before his enemies do. Ripper has no choice but to protect her, but he’ll be damned if he lets her under his skin again. One look, though, and he can’t deny she still sets him aflame.

Oh, man. After the gorgeousness of Thomas from book 2 I had the biker rug yanked out from under me with Ripper. The guy was left years ago after being deeply in love and when he sees the heroine again he is HULK pissed to the point he turns into a giant dickhead. I think he spent half the book extremely angry with her, so angry that I wondered how the hell they'd even find their way back to each other. On top of that the heroine just took all that verbal anger because she thought sh

3.75 stars for this angry boy

Goodness, Ripper was angry, so angry for half of this book that it was hard to love him as much as I loved Thomas. We went from super attentive hero in the last book to this grumpy, hard to deal with guy who had his heart crushed.

What I love about this series is the bikers are all about their women. Even as Ripper was, super pissed off, he still protected his family. Their little girl was adorable and a great addition.

Wish we'd seen more of Bud and how that situ

Holy shit balls, I was not prepared for Ripper and all his glorious surly anger rising off the page like steam. The author really did a great job of not making all the bikers the same as each other. I love Thomas, from book 2. He is the epitome of my kind of attentive hero and while Ripper has that in him, he carried a lot of baggage from being dumped and in turn he was kind of a dick at first to the heroine who i wanted her to turn around and thump him at times, but she took on that guilt so i ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Em left Ripper for she thought Ripper cheated on her and to top it off she keeps the birth of her daughter Bree 5yrs. so he's angry and since the club and her uncles Cliffs club is after him Ripper takes her to his club house for safety. At times I get mad Ripper for he gets angry at Em and doesn't really talk with her and all she wants to know how he feels about her, they have a lot of sex but he never says, the words I love you...there some intense moments in this b ...more

Book 3 in the series . This is my first from the author and the series. It was a great listen . The narrator was great. The voice was clear and you can tell all the characters by the tone.

Hero is a Ripper. Heroine is Emilia.
This audio is about betrayal, survival and getting justice.
When Chip the pres of the M/C is shot by a rival M/C , it’s up to Ripper to find Chips family and protect them. That includes Emilia.

I've read more than my fair share of MC books. Some good, some very good. This one was good. The story was interesting, with the danger of another club always keeping the pacing tense. The characters? Well let's see...

Ripper. Angry as no man has been before. So angry and resentful that at times you couldn't see how they would ever find their way back to each other. At least he wasn't angry and shoving taps in her face. She only had to deal with how he was treating her personally - which was hell

Some loves are bigger than you could even dream. When that kind of love takes you, it can be years and you'll never stop. This is where we find Emelia and Bryce, or Ripper to his brothers.
Bryce never thought he'd see her again. He never stopped loving her, no matter how hard he tried. But when her life could be in danger, he has no choice but to face the pain of finding her. What he finds, isn't what he expects and now he has even more to protect.
Emelia ran from that part of her life and hid f

Solid 4.5 read that I enjoyed

Riding Blind is the third book in the 3rd book in the Hell Ryders MC series. I have never read this series and I was worried being book 3 I would follow. I was perfectly fine and I was drawn in from the get-go. I read this book in one go and could not put it down. So many emotions. So many things that went on and weren't said. I think the author did a great job with how she told this story. Sometimes it was hard to read because let's face it there was a betrayal. I w

Well first off let me say I haven't read any of the books in this series and was able to get into this read with a quickness. First off I loved this author's MC books. Her MC's are not nearly as crazy as some I have read but the guys are the epitome of whipped by their women. They are the only ones that can control and love these guys. Rip was a turd, all the anger from her leaving him with no word. There is so much betrayal and emotions in this book it is crazy. I started reading and got mad an ...more

Yet again another fantastic one that is in this series. I got to read the one before this so that is what got me hooked. This one is featured around Ripper and Emelia or Em. Right away the way it is opened with how they come back into his life -wowzer. The emotions that roll off the pages will be like a tidal wave with you get slammed. The story is one that gets you by the throat but also this is a second chance with you wanting it so desperately. The drama that is interwoven is also part of the ...more

This couple puts some of my crazy family to shame lol

Em ran when she couldn't choose between the men in her life and she ran with a secret , she loves Bryce aka Ripper and it tore her heart out to leave.

Ripper has hardened his heart since Em left five years ago but now he is put in the place to find and protect her , they both still have chemistry through the roof but the secret she has kept hidden from him damn most can not get over and when he meets Bree, Em’s daughter these two keep pushing e

Ripper Bryce who is a member of Hell Ryder's Mc falls in love with Emelia "Em" and for two years they were together and Ripper thought all was great until one day Em disappears and it wasn't until her cousin Chip got shot that Ripper was able to find Em but Em wasn't alone she had kept a major secret from him.
There were times I wanted to punch Ripper in the face and felt so bad for Em especially when Ripper start acting like an ass to her and wants nothing to do with her.

Bryce is a pissed off hot mess because Em ran off 5 yrs ago and now he's gotta find her. Of course they are both hot messes and attitudes for days. Its hard to believe that stupid decisions can end up with you missing so much in life. Em is crazy though and she makes Bryce pay just as much as he makes her pay for all the hurt. Bree is the perfect little girl all sass, and tomboy in one and super adorable.

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. It is not required to listen to the first two stories to enjoy this one. The relationship between "Ripper" and Em is a strained one. It goes through a lot of turmoil to get to a resolution. The author brings you in in the very beginning and the narrator, with his gravely voice, does a great job bringing the listener in to the MC environment. I could not stop listening and want more.

Riding Blind is book three in J.L. Sheppard’s Hell Ryders MC series.

This book is the story of Bryce “Ripper” Knight and Emelia “Em” Kenna and holy cow what a story! A fantastic story of a love lost and then found five years later. Ripper and Em have a lot of twist and turns, truths and lies, a huge misunderstanding, a rival gangs threats and an even bigger secret to wade through before they can ever get their HEA.

Can these two overcome everything to get what they really want….each other? Grab th

This was a great read.

The H was a real ahole, does not matter if he thinks what the h did was wrong. She had a very good reason anyway.

I recommend this book to MC lovers and if you like when the H is a real big a$$hole.

How are you suppose to feel when you have to go find the girl that broke you years ago? How are you suppose to react when he comes looking for you and finds out why you ran? This was a really good lost and found romance that I wasnt able to put down.

We saw in the previous books that Ripper was hurt, life changingly so, when Emilia left him 5 years earlier. As the cousin to Chip, President of one of their former rivals, one they were slowly starting to mend fences with, Ripper is surprised when Chip sends word that he knows where Em is and that he needs to go find and protect her. Ripper isn't prepared for what he finds when they are reunited though as it turns out Em didn't just take herself away from Ripper, she

If you want an MC romance without all that other darker nonsense that you see in so many others that just ruin it and take away from the character connections ( IMO ) this is for you.
I freaking love this author's style and cast of characters.

Riding Blind in book #3 in the Hell Ryders MC series, and although I read this as a standalone, I feel as if I missed little or nothing when reading. But I will be going back to where it all began, Im a little addicted to these Alfa MC men.
This is Ripper and Em's story, a story of loss, hurt and heartache, a second chance romance!!
But not is all smooth sailing for these two, they have both grown into different people over the years, the pain of there past still lingers, will it spell the end for

The third book for the H3Ll Ryder MC series is about finding your way home.
Emelia ran from her first and only love with an secrets that surprises you.
Bryce aka Ripper deals with forgiveness while trying to find the man he used to be.
I really loved how even through this was a second chance novel, it didn't give a vibe that it was. I seriously can't stand reading one of those. This isn't an instalove or a jump straight back into where everything left off. It's like real life, when you want somet
