Misery loves company…and I prefer to dance with the devil.

I wasn’t supposed to want her, and yet here I am. She’s the queen of hell and most people hate her, but that’s because they don’t know her.
Katya is special, a broken gem who has been through so much and yet stands up like she’s endured nothing.
I’m risking everything by being with her, but what happens when s

Reckoning Teaser 3
5 Stars

OMG this was fantastic and my absolute favourite of all the books in this series.
Events here finally culminating with such reveals that have left the whole Skulls Renegade MC reeling in shock from the secrets and lies unfolding right before there eyes.
What a finale this episode had; saying I'm actually gobsmacked here is an actual understatement.
"Reckoning" left me completely flawed; so excuse me here while I actually pick up my jaw from the floor.
So This time around its Katya and Slasher

⭐️⭐️TWO STARS⭐️⭐️ (and I might change to 1-Star)

I am trying to figure out how this novella received so many 5-Star reviews, it actually irks the fuck out of me! The only reason I haven't given it 1-Star yet (and that might change) is because I actually finished it and I only finished it because it was 189 pages.

WHAT?!?!?! I have screamed at my kindle for 10 minutes because of that ending! I couldn't put this book down but you can't leave a girl hanging like this....

Four days later after the shock has worn off - I absolutely loved Katya and Slasher’s story.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Reckoning by Elizabeth Knox is book Five in the Skulls Renegade MC Series. This is the story of Katya and Slasher / Junior. I have read the previous books and feel you can make this a standalone book if you choose to do so. But most of the books have a underlining theme and recurring characters so it may help you to enjoy it more if you do.

Whew! This book did not hold back at all. It was spicy from the beginning to the end. It's definitely not for the week of heart. It's the Russian mafia meets the MCs... even though both groups are separate, they are each connected in some way.

I love the connection between Junior and Katya. They just seem to fit very well together and have a level of understanding for one another.

I received this book as an ARC and and I am so glad that I did. This is my first book that I read from Elizabeth Kno

This is a mixture of MC and the Russian Mob packed with some very strong females. How does a mother sell her children and how do those children survive the hell she sold them into? Slash/Junior has some pretty deep scars as well both inside and out. Will these two damaged people be able to find any solace in their lives?

Oh my lanta - thank you! Whew. I was starting to get really worried there, this one definitely will be my favorite thus so far - Reckoning was definitely a better read! 

I think I mostly liked Reckoning because I was finally given what I wanted: Slasher. That's right, I wanted him since his first appearance and now I have him comrades! So yes, this go we have Junior "Slasher

I have recently read The Trade (The Clans, book 2) by this author, and it was so well-written and gripping, I grabbed this one too. Luckily for me, although this is book 5 in the Skulls Renegade MC, there seems to be a bit of storyline overlap so I was able to keep up with this action-packed book. The start of the story is brutal, as we watch the last stages of Katya's old life with Sergei. She is physically & mentally strong, so driven by her need to protect her siblings. There are no good guys ...more

I really must be honest this book was hard for me to rate. I initially thought I would give it a 3 star but I hate to do that to an author. I have read some of the books in the series but not all so I may be missing some key pieces, thus the 4 stars.
I do remember Slash from a previous book and wasn't thrilled with him and in this book, for me, he did a complete turn around. MC members or even drifters are really alpha but next to Katya he becomes someone who gladly allows her to take the lead on

HOLY CRAP! So I knew this book was going to special, but I did not expect that!!! I loved seeing this side of Katya and seeing how she rose from the ashes. Then we have Slash, who pretty much did the same thing. The end of Relentless had me super curious about what would happen with Slash. He really seemed closed off and I was almost afraid of what was going to happen to him. I absolutely loved that he and Katya got together, it is just too perfect.

(4 stars)

Reckoning is Katya and Slasher/Junior’s story. We have met Katya briefly as she is Dimitri’s sister that is married to a Russian mafia boss, and Slasher is the MC sort-of-brother who was taken along with Bellamy in her and Butch’s book. There is more to Katya than what there appeared to be in Dimitri’s book, but I can’t really say anything more about it without giving away the story, we just know that Dimitri and their sister Ksenia are not exactly happy to see her.

I read this book as part of an arc program. This is a dark tale about a young woman named Katya who was sold by her mother into a world of slavery and eventually sold to Sergei, a crime boss who became her husband. Katya would do anything to protect her brother and sister who were also sold, and when she was divorced from her husband, he forced her to keep working for him. When Katya tried to contact her brother at his MC, he didn't want anything to do with her because he believed she was a will ...more

Reckoning is another amazing read by Elizabeth Knox. This is the fifth installment of the Skulls Renegade MC series. I could not put this book down it is so good. This is the story of Katya and Slasher. Everyone calls Katya a monster but she has the right to be one after all she has had to go through to protect the ones she loves, though the ones she loves don’t want her around anymore. Katya was married and her husband through her away. With nowhere to go she comes to Tennessee to try to reconn ...more

Darkly serious and seriously romantic (in their own dark way)

Reckoning by Elizabeth Knox is not a romance for the lighthearted. A well written book that blends MC, Eastern European/Russian Mob families and human trafficking, not to mention pulse pounding torture. I found myself holding my breath often! Katya and Slasher, a seemingly unlikely pair find love and acceptance in a crazy turn of events. Their breath stealing, rough and raw chemistry burns the pages up.

Wow! Reckoning sucked me into it's dark and twisty story from page one and held me captive as I devoured each and every word. Sometimes I cringed, sometimes I wanted to cry and/or hit something/someone but I also couldn't walk away. I needed to know what was coming next, I wanted to find answers, to watch Katya move through what was happening.

I found myself lost in the darkness, curious to know what painful thing would come next while equally hoping there'd be some light. I

Elizabeth Knox is amazing and her Skulls Renegade series is fabulous! This one veered off the beaten path just a bit and stayed out of MC life most of the time, but she weaves us into The Clans, which I definitely want to read now...oh my word! Katya is a monster, or at least others believe she is, herself included. She has done so much to survive, but she’s also given up so much of herself to protect the ones she loves. Tossed aside and hurt she meets Slasher. We got to know Slasher in Bellamy ...more

If you've read the previous book in this series, you've read about the horrific assault on Slasher by a member of his previous MC. His face matches his nickname, Slasher.
The moment Slasher meets Katya, he's impressed by her beauty and by her attitude. She seems to have had an equally difficult past as him. He can see the pain in her eyes.

Elizabeth Knox has a way of writing that drawls you in while leaving you freaking speechless at every turn. Every story weaves with the others and you see overlapping chatters through all of her books.

I am in love with Slasher & Katya, especially Katya! She is strong and fierce and doesn't apologize for who she is. She loves her siblings like no other and has dealt with more turmoil than anyone can fathom. Slasher is a no BS type of guy and Katya perfect m

This is the 5th book in the Skulls Renegade series but I feel like each book can be read as a standalone. This book is about Katya and Slasher.

Katya's mother sold her and her siblings into human trafficking and Katya done what she had to do to keep her sister safe. Her siblings hate her for it but there is a war brewing because of their uncle. Katya goes to warm her siblings and meets Slasher!

Slasher has been through hell and back so when Katya and slash meet, their souls kind of recognize that

I’m so excited that we get Slash’s story finally!
Katya is suffering every day. First from her mother and now from her husband. What he did to her was horrific. Katya meets Slash at the clubhouse, when she goes to find her brother. There is an undeniable connection between them and their attraction is instant. The book was full of twists and turns, especially the ones at the last chapters, I really didn’t see that coming.

"It has been far too long since I have been looked at in this light and it warms my heart. I crave it. For once, I just want to see someone who doesn't hate me nor fear me, just someone who sees me."

Katya has never had an easy life since the death of her father. Sold in as a child by her mother someone who should have loved and protected her proved to her that she should trust no one but herself. Sergei the man she was sold to used her as a sex toy and a pawn to do his bidding. In the end they married but when she thought she had love once again she was proved wrong. When she meets Slasher they have a lot in common in that they have lived hard lives and trust does not come easy. With nothin ...more
