Burned... like tires smoking on the street. That’s how Alessia’s last relationship left her. Vowing never again to trust a man with her heart, she moved to Reno in search of a fresh start.

Little did she know, everything would change with the rumble of an engine.

Into her bar sauntered a dark and sexy biker by the name of Blade, with club politics on his mind and the MC in

I really liked Betting On Forever. I will say that as much as I liked Blade and Vegas, I liked the friends more. Vegas is a strong and stubborn woman who does not bank down from much. Blade is the MC prez. He is tough and not afraid to take care of business but has a soft spot for Vegas. They make a strong couple and fight hard together when the time comes!!

Moving on to book 2 ❤️

So these are the kinds of reviews that are hard for me to write. It is the ones that while you liked the book you just didn’t love it but the potential was there and maybe future books will get better and better. It must be said that this is the first book in this series so it, I think, fell into first book issues. There is a LOT going on, we are introduced to many characters, I got confused at times because so m

Wasn't sure if I was going to like this book since the beginning novella wasn't very good in my opinion. It was mostly thoughts with no real action but this one was good and I truly enjoyed it.

There's a whole lot of club stuff and plenty of romance with hot sexy times. Started a little bit of enemy to lovers. Alessia left her family behind and her and her two best friends took off to live in Vegas and opened a bar. She was getting over a broken heart. In comes in a few men of the local MC club

Another MC series is starting and I can't stay away... I need to read it and the fact that the blurb spiked my curiosity was a huge bonus. But reading a book from a new author can be scary, I know that I've already said this but it's the truth. Reading a book from a new author can be an amazing thing or it can crash and burn... To many variables are at stake... Is the plot appealing? Will I like her writing? Do the characters work good together? See... To many questions but there is only one way ...more

No one loves to “discover” a talented new author more than I do...and the fact that Scarlett Black has begun her career with an authentic and realistic series about the Battle Born Motorcycle Club is just a bonus to me.....As much as I love books about MCs, nothing disappoints me more than beginning one and realizing it is not portraying an MC, realistically or even believably (Thank you, Sons of Anarchy

This was a good book but I had a hard time getting used to a weird quirk of using question marks at the end of sentences that weren't questions. It kept making me re-read lines of dialog to try and make sense of the punctuation but never really could.

Both Blade and Alessia were good characters and I was okay with most of the book, but there were parts that were dumb and made no sense. As time went on, that Vegas didn't mention her ties to the MC to Blade and that she acted like she didn't know
This was a good story for a first time author. Not perfect but very engaging. At times I was confused with information that was just thrown in with no lead up to it. I plan on reading the next book in the series. There's no cheating and an HEA. There are some pretty graphic violent scenes regarding torturing some of the club's rivals. ...more

I have to say that Scarlett Black has out did herself with The Battle Born MC. This is the first book in the series and I have to say it started off with a BANG! Lord have mercy we get to see Alessia first in this story and what happens to her. After experiencing a heart break she tells her family she needs to make a clean break and move away. After moving away she starts a new life and buys a bar where her two bet friends come and join her.

That is when she meets tall, dark, and effing gorgeous

Betting on Forever is book 1 in The Battle Born MC Series written by Scarlett Black. This is the story of Alessia DeRosa, owner of the local bar ( Vegas to her friends ) & Blade Johnson, president of the Battle Born Motorcycle Club Reno Chapter. Scarlett is a new author for me and Betting On Forever is her debut novel. The Plot, principal and second characters were thought and write perfectly. I love reading MC stories and this one have it all; action, suspense, mystery, sexy banter, humor, lots ...more

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

I have to call this a slow build MC romance novel as it took me a little bit to get into it but once it got good I was enjoying the characters. Vegas is a kick butt main female lead and she kept blowing my mind with her in depth plans. Then we get Blade the alpha pres of the local chapter with his dominant ways. Man do the sparks got when you put them together. The in depth plot was rather fascinating as
This is the first book in a series by a debut author. This was a really good, enjoyable book. I really liked Alessia and Blade together. Separate, they were great characters, but together, they're incredible. This book has it all. Humor, action, and drama. I can't wait to read book two.

“When two lonely hearts meet, the collision instantly sparks fire and desire back into their lives and future.”

Betrayal. A small word that can completely change a life. A gesture that can freeze a heart forever. This is how Alessia DeRosa feels, while watching across the street a scene that would mark her forever: the betrayal of her husband. An event that makes her leave her family and the life she knows and bet everything in a business within miles of the motorcycle club where her father is pr

I am amazed that this is a first novel from this author, as she has done a fantastic job! Alessia and Blade have explosive chemistry between them, and I loved the witty banter between all of the characters. This is a well written story with a great plot, and with such depth to both. This story is filled with suspense, drama, humour, and is a steamy read which had me intrigued and captivated throughout. Hat’s off to this talented author for her 1st novel, and she is certainly a name which I will ...more

This was a brilliant debut book from Scarlett Black.
Such a strong leading female character.
The male lead was just as strong.
They blended really well.
Can't wait for Dana and Axls' book.

Vegas Baby!

This is my second time reading this and I think it was even better the second time around! Vegas and Blade are made for each other. I know she had trust issues but he proves he's a good guy. Can't wait to read more about the BBMC!

Alessia and Blade. These two are meant for each other--that is if they don't kill each other first.

She's tough. She's built a wall around her heart that few can climb. Her family. Her friends. Certainly not another cocky biker--no matter how hot he is. She's happy with her successful club run and owned by her besties. They are havin' fun. Makin' money. Not trustin' anyone but family and her girls.

Blade is the new MC President of the Battle Born MC local chapter. He needs to set up for his Tattoo

Betting on Forever is Scarlett Black's debut book, and frankly, I'm shocked, as her talented writing style completely hooked me from the get go, so she's firmly on my radar. This story stars Alessia DeRosa, a sassy, independent woman who I simply couldn't get enough of. She got married young, and when her husband broke her heart, she grieved, then moved on, building a new life for herself, becoming the powerful Vegas. She meets Blade Johnson, who is the president of the Battle Born MC Reno Chapt ...more

Alessia left behind her old life after being hurt, by a man, she puts everything she has into the bar, swearing she will never let anyone break her like that again.
When Blade meets Alessia with a business proposition for her, after leaving he realises that he wants something more than the girls at the club, and only she will satisfy him.
Blade knows it’s going to take time with Alessia, he sees her pain and sees her push away, but he lets her know he wants all of her, he wants her to give him a c

This book is fantastic. Two head strong characters that always stay in control. We follow Blade and Alessia on their wonderful journey. Alessia is heartbroken when her eyes witness her husband. She is proud and stubborn so she takes off and starts her bar. When Blade enters the picture, she knows she doesn’t want her heart broke again so she plays with him. Little does she know that he always wins. Awesome writing with a spectacul

Holy shit!!!

This is the first book by this author and all I can say that it is AMAZING!! Please take the time and give this author a chance. I absolutely loved it. The storyline and characters were thought out well and it all rolled together perfectly. Aleesia aka Vegas has her heart broken in the beginning of the book. Skip ahead a few years and in walks Blade and his MC brothers into the picture. Vegas has The no bullshit attitude and takes no shit from anybody men and women alike. There is so

New author smashed it out of the park! I loved this book and COULDN'T put it down even when I needed to lol! I love Vegas (Alessia) she is a strong female lead and doesn't take crap from anyone even though all her boxes are checked with Blade. She had a rough go of it at beginning of her story but you find out why she is the way she is and I totally get her being a hard ass. Blade doesn't know what to make of her but he wants her like no tomorrow. Real truths are found out and the game is played ...more

I absolutely love a good book with a strong leading male and an even stronger leading female to balance it out. This book is just that. Everyone expects the Male to be a tough alpha male, well, this book is no different. What is different, is the fact that Vegas is just as strong if not stronger than Blade. After life threw Veags some hardships, she didn't let them take her over. Instead, she picked herself up by the bootstraps and started a new. Blade knew he'd have his hands full with Vegas, h ...more

An ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

If you love a strong female character and you're a fan of MC books, then this is the book for you! This is Ms. Black's debut novel, and I'm actually kinda surprised. Oftentimes, I find that debut authors' novels sometimes lack character development. That is not the case here! This is a down and dirty MC book, and I thoroughly enjoyed every page of it! Blade is hot, alpha, and a biker. What's not to love?! Vegas is a strong leading lady and can hol

Debut. There’s a lot of potential!

I really wish I could give this 3.5 stars as a rating. This is the authors debut novel and is really good but I think too much is going on. We meet a lot of people and hear about a lot of past events that periodically confused me. I also think some of the dialogue/scenes were unrealistic or forced. However, I loved the authors way with the main characters and I’m intrigued with how she will write subsequent books with members of the MC. I’ll definitely keep read
