I really really wanted to like this more than I did, but I need to connect with the main characters and I just didn't with either of them. Smokey's treatment of Braylynn in the beginning is expected and his first scene with Bri didn't matter, but to me, the second one did and I didn't care about him anymore. I totally got Braylynn's first attempt (you'll have to read to know what I'm talking about) but not the second. I like my female characters being strong and showing it. Overall this book of ...more

Smoking Hot!!!

Oh, MC lovers this is the book for you if you like dark and dirty. Smokey’s family is gunned down by another MC so he is seeking revenge by kidnapping their Prez’s daughter. He plans to take her, break her, mark her and then send her back to her family hoping that they will feel some of the pain that he is going through. The darkness that has plagued him has left no boundaries that he would not cross.

Braylynn has a surprise for Smokey; she’s already broken. No matter what Smokey do

"Smokey, the VP of the So Cal Soulless Bastards, is a wounded man set on revenge for the murder of his family. His choice of revenge is sick and twisted. Kidnapping the daughter of a rival MC that was responsible for his family’s deaths.

His plans didn’t quite go as planned. This is a gritty, hard to read book, but despite that I think Erin has another hit.

There are many twists and turns and surprises in this book and I think it showed just how strong the brotherhood of this MC runs. " Natalie

I received this book for an honest review. What an amazing beginning to the Soulless Bastards MC So Cal series these strong bikers who love the brotherhood and the strong women that enter their lives. This was an emotional, dark story filled with drama, kidnapping, murder, betrayal , revenge and lots of steam. This is not your normal romance story but about Smokey VP of the Soulless Bastards who is a broken man left with only hate and revenge in his heart when his family was murdered by a rival ...more

After reading the Soulless No Cal boys, I was so excited to dive into the So Cal boys. WOW, it was worth the wait! Smokey, tormented by his past and seeking revenge. Braylynn unsure of her place in life but looking for more with no idea of what that is or where to find it. Paths cross because of revenge with secrets coming to light along the way with other club business. The twists and turns, the mentions of the other boys and having their help along the way with everything that happens. Show th ...more

I love, love this spin off!! We get introduced to a whole new Soulless Bastards MC chapter. Smokey is the VP of the So Cal chapter and he is out for revenge and is going to make Braylynn pay for her father’s sins. He captures Bray and tries to break and brand her. Bray isn’t the typical MC princess, she has determination and grit going for her. She knows why he’s exacting revenge and feels bad whilst understanding. Once Smokey is done with her can he really send her back to face imminent death? ...more

We've had the No Cal Chapter,here's the So Cal, and what a start this is, lots of fast paced action, a kidnapping, a traitor, what starts as revenge turns to something else, this is Smokey, the club's VP and Braylynn, the daughter of a rival club's story and the thing I love the most, is when characters you know and love make a guest appearance, this maybe a dark romance but it is also so much more and I cannot wait to get my next fix, I thought No Cal was my favourite of the brothers, but I can ...more

This dark MC Romance is well-written with violence, abuse, revenge, a reawakening of feelings and wonderfully realistic main characters. The H is damaged after a tragic loss and is filled with vengeance towards the rival MC who perpertrated it. The h is the MC rival's daughter and is already broken, ruining the planned revenge. When the exchange is to be made, the reawakened feelings come into play. Very compelling and intense read. I voluntarily read an ARC and this is my honest review.

Smokey is ready to get his revenge. She doesn't know what is coming for her. He has a plan to make Braylynn pay for her father's mistakes. When he thinks he has broken her Bray shows him just how strong she is.
Will Smokey be able to see what he can have with Braylynn before it is too late?

This was a different read than the others but liked it just the same.

I love Smokey! He is rough and doesn't care what anyone thinks. He may have started out wanting to hurt Braylynn, but things change once he finally got his hands on her. Braylynn is broken and just looking for a way out.
It was great to see a few characters from the No Cal series pop in. I can't wait to see who is next in the So Cal MC.

Intense story!!

It was difficult to read this story at first as the way that Smokey treated Braylynn was cruel and unnecessary. However, this is a well written story which had me intrigued throughout and I look forward to reading more from this author whose work I recommend for all MC lovers.

Was a good storyline anad we'll written just a little disappointed that it was so short, but that was on me for not paying attention at the books length.

Omg!!! Smokey had my feelings about him teetering towards dislike. Then as I saw how he changed after being around Bray, I loved him! This book was at times a hard read but as I got more into Smokey's pain I saw why. This book was brilliantly written! I can't wait for the next book!

Absolutely amazing! Brilliantly written story that will not only capture you but it will attack you with such a vengeance that you will never see it coming. Smokey and Braylynn's story is one of harshness, cruelty, loss, retaliation and pure old revenge. Smokey lost everything by the hands of the MC that Braylynn's father is the president of. He's watched, he's waited, he's planned and now is the time to put his plan into action. She will be his to ruin, to break and then send back to her father ...more

OH MY, Ms. Terjo has given us an amazing read with Smokey. He is the VP of the So. Cal Chapter of the Soulless Bastards MC. Smokey is a hard, heartless man. He wasn’t always that way but when his family is killed because of his lifestyle and associated with the MC, Smokey’s life takes on a vengeful, devil like change.

Smokey plots and plans his revenge. He is going to capture and break, Braylynn, the daughter to the club’s president that took his family away. He captures Bray and begins his slow

I don’t even know where to start on a review for this book. There is so much to it. Smokey is a complicated guy. He has a roughness because of the issues with his family. He wasn’t that was before but doesn’t feel he will ever be able to completely go back to that guy. His revenge involves Braylynn. He feels if he kidnaps her and does all these awful things to her it will be payback for his family. That doesn’t work out. Braylynn on the other hand has had awful things done to her either by her d ...more

Smokey is an incredible and action packed romance. While this is a first time read for me for Ms. Trejo, I was riveted. Smokey is full of action, twist and turns as well as a love/hate relationship between Smokey and 'Bray', to the point that I was absorbing every word of this release carefully. At a few points, I had to re-read these engaging pages, because I wanted to make sure that what I read was correct. While I do read daily, MC romances are my favorite and oh my... Erin has certainly deli ...more

The guys of The Soulless Bastards are a unique bunch of men especially Smokey he seems to have recently been touched by the devil!


They killed his whole family and yes he knows who they are...The Crashed MC.
Smokey is out for vengeance and what better way then to kidnap the MC Princess (the prez's daughter). Smokey has plans for Braylynn...not any of it good and when he is done he will send her back to her own MC but unfortunately that plan might not work so well.....

Wow! “Smokey” is not your typical MC romance. Although superbly written with complex characters this book is extremely dark and deeply emotional. Smokey is out for revenge for the murder of his family. Braylynn's father, the President of a rival MC is responsible for their deaths. Smokey kidnaps Braylynn. He wants to ruin her, break her then send her back to her father. At first, I didn't like Smokey because of his cruelty to Braylynn but as the story progresses Smokey begins to have doubts abou ...more

Ok, first off Erin Trejo is one of my favorite authors. Love her books and the Soulless Bastards No Cal MC series is amazing, loved those characters, so I was so excited about Smokey! All that being said, Smokey is a way darker character and book. It's still a fantastic book, but, wow, it was hard to read sometimes because he is a sick and vicious man and that is evident from the first page. But don't stop reading I promise it's worth it. Reasons for why he's the man he's become make him more un ...more

I am a wife, mother, child chauffeur and author. I love being able to create different characters and spin a web that makes them come together in the end. My books do not stick to just one genre, they span many.

I write about things that are real life situations and fairy tales are not always smooth sailing. My MC books are hard and gritty and they have struggles just like you would in life.
