Tracy *To the point Reviews*

But when an author has to spend pages upon pages explaining the functioning and reasoning of the characters and what where's and why's instead of letting ACTIONS become discovery? IT DRIVES ME BATTY!!!!

This is just paragraphs upon paragraphs of inner musings by duel POV's and many chapters in (Chapter 5 page 135), they have only seen each other!! AGH!!!

Not that I am not interested. I'm just losing patience waiting for something... ANYTHING to happen.

And another bugger the characters loo

Come across a new to me author with a story that centers with a MC, something I like to read. Then I come to realize this is her debut too. She does us right with it being that with you the reader opening it up to see for yourself. Alot of passion will be gotten from this one with Rage and Juliet pulling our strings. As things come to light you will sit up straighter to see what transpires next. Healing will be put to the test also. This one does go deep with us taking it all in. She does us rig ...more

It had been a minute since I've read a motorcycle book and this one was great. Had action, love, hate, suspense, and some hold your breath parts. There might be some parts that could be triggers but was done in a good way. Great read! ...more

Loved it

So many books confuse strength of character for a female lead with being a b!tchy person. I was so happy to read a female character that embodies true strength and inner beauty! Finally, someone got it right! The book would be worth the read for that alone, but then everything else that follows is pure genius too!

Effortless pacing, rich characters, and a storyline that goes far deeper than the usual surface level insta-love you find in many MC romance books bring this story together in a
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Consumed By Rage by Zara Teleg is book One in A Stained Souls MC. This is the story of Juliet and Rage.
Juliet has taken to keeping her secrets and trying to keep herself safe after a damaging past. Rage too is someone that has a tortured past that is guarded. Rage is part of the Stained Souls Motorcycle Club and MMA fighter. Both have been hurt but they see something in each other that draws them to the other.
I really enjoyed their story and hope to read more from this author and series.

Juliet Russo was taken and almost killed four years but she has picked up the pieces, moved and started a new life for herself being careful to avoid anyone who has any links to her past. She has opened up a yoga studio with her best friend and also teaches classes at The Pit, a local gym.
Alexander “Rage” Erikson is part of the Stained Souls MC and opened The Pit with his best friend Leo but then had to leave town for 4 years but now he is back and ready to move forward with his life. When Rage
Three and a 1/2 stars ⭐️
This was very well written for being the authors first book. The characters where well developed and I enjoyed the secondary characters as well. I love when an author makes you want to know the secondary characters as well. The book did get a bit “wordy” and I did skim over some things. Overall I enjoyed the book and look forward to Paiges’ story.

Wow, what a story. I couldn't put it down once started. So many twists and turns throughout the story.

Zara Teleg did amazing job with this book.

I loved Rage and Juliet together, they had a slow burn kind of relationship. They started as friends with Juliet fighting her feelings. But once they gave in they had such a big chemistry.

Loved this book! Was in depth with character description, plot line was clear and easy to follow, the Hero and Heroine both were strong independent people who weren't afraid to stand up for their beliefs.
A boy meets girl, girl tries to resist the boy and fails, and the heart ache of a perceived deception and the fall out. We see him rescue her, save the day and SHE takes out the Big Bad.
I am excited to read book 2 when it comes out, and will happily add it to my TBR list. Thanks Zara! 5 stars!

This is the first time I have read this author and it definitely won’t be my last.

Juliet is an amazing character full of strength and she was a character that part of you wanted to be like as she got herself stronger after what she went through and vowed to protect those she loved and did what she had to. I truly admired how she got back onto her feet and made herself strong. I loved her friendship with Ivy and how Ivy supported her and was always there for her.

I really liked Rage and gave him

~~~~~~~~~~~Julie's ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Juliet only knows fear and for years she has only depended on herself. Rage has returned home with his demons. He meets Juliet and things turn strange. He wants her but she won’t open up to him. When her past returns to collect her, Rage will do anything to find her. These two are perfect for each other. They both have to learn how to trust and lean on one another. Awesome storyline.

I can't tell you enough good things about this book! As an MC romance, it's got it all...the club, the brotherhood, a little grittiness, the danger. As a dramatic romance, it's got it all...the suspense, the danger, the building connection between the main characters. I LOVED this book. Juliet is not your typical woe-is-me gal who needs saving from the big bad of the story. No, she's got spunk and independence, but still teeters on the edge of vulnerable. Rage is not your typical alpha. He's ret ...more

You would never guess this was Zara Teleg's debut novel!! It is well written and I was not disappointed. This first book in the Stained Souls MC series grabbed me from the start. Zara has given us a great storyline and interesting characters to fall in love with.

Juliet and Rage have an instant chemistry but they both have pasts that haunt them and fight against opening up their hearts. While Juliet lives in fear and in fear for those that surround her, Rage is consumed with his past losses and r

I won an ARC copy of Consumed By Rage and I must say that I really enjoyed it. I was up most of the night and picked right back up this morning. Rage is an Alpha man afraid to love because of losses in his past. Juliet is a strong independent woman on the run and although strongly attracted to Rage keeps him at arms length. This book has a bit of it all...drama, suspense, a little club girl drama, and not extremely graphic sex scenes. I was so excited to read it and really enjoyed the relationsh ...more

Wow Consumed by Rage had me all twisted up. 🥰I couldn’t put it down I opened it up late at night and then I was happy that my little man wanted to go to daycare so I could snuggle in my blankets all morning and finish it. but right now I wish I really took my time but I just couldn’t 😆 I can not wait to follow the MC they have my heart already I’m hoping the next one will not be far away. Thank you so much for hideaway his book has even me ☺️ P.s Sorry no spoilers from me ..

I enjoyed this book. On a few occasions I thought there was too much written that didn’t need to be, but overall I loved Juliette and Rage’s story. Juliette has major secrets and in hiding will not share with Rage causing a fight in which he leaves her, angry she won’t trust him. When her past catches up with her, Rage lives up to his name to try get her back. Great first book and I look forward to reading more in the series.

I swear up and down with this book guys... I did speed read this and skim quite a bit. I did "recently" read it so a lot of it was still fresh on my mind, but I did need to reread so I could discuss it!

I am dead. This book. Was amazing. I don't even know where to start with this book or even what to say. This was amazing. So unique, held my attention from the get-go and I swooned sooo hard. Y'all need to pick this up!

Amazing, amazing, amazing! This is the absolute best book I have read. The details and depth kept your attention and made you want to come back for more. The references to the songs, actually made me listen to that song while I was reading that particular part! Looking forward to the next book in this series.

A solid debut

It’s somewhat difficult to believe that this book was the author’s debut novel, since it didn’t have the editing issues or hesitation in taking risks that many other first forays into writing seem to have. Juliet is on the run, Rage is fighting his heart, and I couldn’t put the book down. Overall, I enjoyed this book and can’t wait to see what comes next.

What an awesome first book! This is one of the best books I have read for a long time. The characters were great, the story was fantastic the writing was really good. I really liked that Juliette was a strong female but not harsh, she was a gentle soul. Rage was intense but Juliette balanced him out. I look forward to reading more by this author
