My first book by this author and I enjoyed it.

I listened to this in audio and also enjoyed the narration.

Sadie is a deputy who rides a motorcycle, she's a strong independent woman which I like in a heroine, she's straight talking and knows what she wants in life.

Sadie first meets Doctor Ryan Montgomery following a car incident when he takes over from her with a dying passenger, despite the circumstances there's an instant attraction.

They meet again when Ryan's daughter goes missing. Ryan is

4.5 Star review of Book’em Sadie (Iron Badges#1) by Danielle Norman
I was intrigued with these women after reading Badges Prequel which was an introduction to the series. This is Sadie Lazar’s story, a motorcycle deputy and Dr Ryan Montgomery story .
I really enjoyed how independent, feisty and determined Sadie is. She knows what she wants and goes after it, needing no man to help her. She is a strong woman and when she meets single dad and widower Ryan at the scene of a horrendous car accident, s

I absolutely loved this book. Ryan and Sadie both have stressful jobs and meet when they least expect it. She is a motorcycle cop and he is a doctor. When she is the first to respond to an accident that occurs right in front of the hospital where he works, they meet and are drawn to each other. He is surprised, because his wife died four years prior and he hasn't been interested in anyone since.
When Sadie gets a call about a missing child, she rushes to look for her. When she finds her, she is

Book' em Sadie by Danielle Norman is book 1 in the Iron Badges series. We meet Sadie Lazar- a motorcycle deputy and Dr Ryan Montgomery- a doctor and widowed father- this is their story .
This is another sensational story with a strong woman and an alpha male. This has great humor, steamy romance, good friendship and that strong family bond. The plot is great and I don't want to give anything away so just know Sadie and Ryan will keep you guessing and glued from start to finish. I enjoyed the char

If you love sarcasm, crass remarks and dirty Luther females, this book is for you!!

Hands down, this author has the most hysterical, crass, and smart eleck characters I have ever read. She has this world created of women that are total bad**ses and they don’t let let anyone run over them. She creates a world of humor, close friendships, and straight up family til the end. I laugh so much when reading these books because all of the outlandish remarks and situations she creates. This author is one

There was all sorts of things to like in this one. I loved Callie, loved that she seemed to march to the beat of her own drummer and that her dad didn't stiffle her. Loved that Sadie got Callie right away. Loved that Ryan was smitten with Sadie from the start and sought her out. It helped later when they met again. Dates between Sadie and Ryan were cute because often Callie was there. What was awful was Ryan's in-laws, the MIL especailly. She often went to far, leading Ryan to have to be the bad ...more

Let me start off by saying this is a new to me author. I WON this book from said author. Thank you!) Honestly, I’m not sure I would have heard of this book otherwise.

I loved this one though!
So much!
I highly recommend it! And now I can hardly wait for the next story in this series!

Sadie is a motor police deputy with a 3 pound poodle. Meaning she’s an officer who rides a motorcycle with a kickbutt outfit but ugly boots. (According to her anyways.) Ryan is a hot doctor.

I loved this story!!!! Not only for the great characters, but for the message Sadie breathes and lives about stepmothers.
Sadie is such an amazing woman, independent, dedicated and good at her job. Her passion tho is in helping children and that's way she volunteers.
Ryan is a single parent, a busy doctor, and no time for a woman like Sadie..but fate and Cassie, Ryan's daughter, make sure that the two meet again and again.
I loved the story, the pace and the message.

I ADORE books with strong heroines. Sadie has just joined the list of my favorite heroines of all time. Ryan was also no pushover. I ADORED his dedication to his daughter, Callie's, who was absolutely adorable. I enjoyed everything about this story and look forward to more in this series as well as previous stories this author has written.

Nobody writes strong heroines like Danielle Norman. When you know her Iron Orchids series, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
Book'em Sadie is book one in her brandnew Iron Badges Series. For best reading experience I recommend to read the prequel, Badges, first.
Meet Sadie Lazar, the PD's newest Motorcycle Deputy. She's a strong woman and has a big, big heart. She's simply that kind I woman I want to be too.
She meets Ryan Montgomery, a single dad, widower and doctor and they hit it right of

I have been so excited to read this book ever since I read the ‘Badges Prequel’ book. Danielle Norman always has the best character development. She writes about real women, who are strong, independent, and badass.

Sadie is one of few women who are on the motorcycle team of the Orange County police department. Ryan is an ER doctor who meets Sadie through their jobs. Their story is unique and interesting. They both have struggles to overcome and through being with each other are able to find the

So I snagged this baby for $.99, folks. Just to have it go on sale for "free" a couple days later. What is up with that, btw? Wouldn't it be more fair/make more sense to offer it for free first. Then "snooze you lose" should kick in then list it for $.99. Either way, I'm a sucker for a romantic read featuring a sassy heroine cop and a hot doc all rolled up into one, so that's why I'm here now.

I really liked the instant attraction set up of this doc hero's heart going twitter patter upon meeting

This is my first ever Danielle Norman book. I had high hopes, after browsing through other readers' reviews, but, honestly? Book'em Sadie was a bit of a let down for me. I know! I know! I'm in the minority here. Please, no rotten tomatoes! But, listen, the Lifetime-movie-esque drama factor involving an unrealistic number of automobile accidents where people died in a span of less than 500 e-book pages was too much. The overused story arc (i.e., hero's first wife dies in a auto accident involving ...more

Book 'em Sadie includes all the elements we love in Danielle's books!

This first book in the Iron Badges series has it all: in the achingly beautiful prolouge we learn of the tragedies that have led to both Sadie and Ryan's strengths and vulnerabilities and the challenge that threatens their romance is well developed and believable as they struggle for their HEA. Ryan's daughter Callie is another of Danielle's great kid characters. (Her favorite movie is GI Jane, and she wants to start a ROTC pro

I really enjoyed this book. Could hardly put it down to even attempt to do anything today. I mean who doesn't love some kick-a$$ women??

I love Sadie and Ryan. They both have one thing in common that no one wants, having lost someone that they love. How it has effected them and their lives is kind of the backbone of the story in my opinion. How they are able to come together and start a life together is great. There were times I felt that the story was a little rushed but I l
I give this book a 3.5. I liked both characters and I loved Callie. I didn't like Louise or Sonya, mainly because I think that angle of the story was a little much. Louise was ridiculous and all of the drama that came with her was waay over the top. I get that Ryan was trying to be nice but it should not have gotten as far it did. Heat level was 🔥🔥.

This was a great start to a new series. I caught myself laughing out loud more than once, and the steamy parts were extra steamy. I think I fell in love with Callie. The characters are well written and relatable, their banter back and forth is perfectly executed. I cannot wait for the next one!

Sadie Lazor and Ryan Montgomery know stress, she's a motorcycle deputy and he's a doctor, when they meet there is an instant attraction and pull that neither can deny.

If you loved the Iron Orchids series then you will love this new one. Its a brilliant spin off from the original girls we have grown to love and it was lovely seeing them again with some cameo appearances.

Danielle has yet again delivered us some addicting, sexy, feisty, kickass women that draw you in and make you feel like you have known them all your life.

I loved Sadie, she was sexy, independent and determined, having finally got to where she wants to be, in Motors. She is now a motorcycle cop

What a book! With uproarious characters and stellar wit, this author has done it again with her latest storyline giving strong women a voice and a way to show off their sassy sides. Ryan is an ER doctor who is dealing with the loss of his wife and being left to raise his young daughter Callie. She may be young but she is very mature for her age and quite capable. Sadie is a sheriff’s deputy whose own past makes her a kindred spirit with Ryan’s daughter and others like her. While Ryan and his dau ...more
