Destroyed by Bella J (American Street Kings Book 4)
The day Ink found Neon’s bloody and battered body he promised her he would get revenge. The rage he felt towards Slither was consuming. He knew that he would make him bleed, scream and he would exact the same pain on him, the same wrath that Slither had inflicted on Neon. When the opportunity presented itself, Ink makes a choice between right and wrong, but for who? Could this decision recoil on the club? Neon has always only viewed Ink in one

It's okay. Everything is going to be.... okay.


Destroyed is the fourth installment in AMERICAN STREET KINGS series. Featuring the most anticipated couple of this club, Neon & Ink, the book stays put to its name. It was a damnation and absolution. It reminded me of Doe's story from Mafia King. The feels, chills, thrills, twists were so welcoming and unpredictable. I have always been a great fan of Bella J. Her writing oozes a sense of serenity, addiction and obsession. Destroyed is a story of

This is book four of the American Street Kings. The first three books must be read before you read this one. I was super excited to read this and I sure wasn’t disappointed. Ink and Neons story was everything I wanted and more. This is a fast paced gritty and intense read. I read it in one evening as there was no way I could put this down. I’m super excited to see what this author writes next.

DESTROYED... COMPLETELY DESTROYED!! The book title aptly tells you what it's gonna do to you.
OH MY GOD . The twists and turns, the secrets revealed AND AND NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! This story has completely wrecked me and my head is still spinning and trying to come to terms.
Right from where it starts, even though we know the evil snake deserves everything yet I was cringing and so scared and nervous for the things that were happening.
But at the same time, witnessing Neon heal and seeing her and Ink

A story of damaged souls lost in the darkness of evil and guilt. She was the beacon of light he needed and all Ink wanted was to save her from the depths she was drowning in. Neon felt like her life was destroyed, that her scars were the picture of ugliness but Ink was out to show her all he saw was beauty. A love story that was in no way all hearts and flowers, their story was raw, confronting and at times breathtaking. My heart suffered from the wreckage and destruction but it was a soul ...more
Ink and Neon have both been through so much in their pasts. Neon's kidnapping and torture at the hands of an enemy club almost destroyed her. Ink was insane with rage and a need for revenge. Now that Neon is starting to heal, Ink has never given up on being her man. Tragic circumstances may leave the club in trouble and Neon without Ink. An epic ending to the series. I would like to find out more about Crow and Maniac in future books.

A twisted, demented, dark story with a HEA.

Ink is determined to get retribution for Neon, and no one will change his mind about it. He already has Slither in a secret hide away and he’s not going to give up his chance to give Neon the peace of mind she needs to heal. He will wait for Neon forever if he has to. He knows that she is the one for him and no one else will ever fit for him.

Neon is still keeping Ink at arms-length and she is still determined to keep away from him. She is healing

Wow, this is another great addition to the American Street Kings series. This author has a way of taking the reader to the far edges of dark and then she can also write the sweetest love scenes. This one is, in my opinion, one of the darkest in the series but I loved the intensity and the characters. It was a quick read for me since it flowed smoothly and was impossible to put down.

This is Ink and Neon’s story and it so good. These two are meant to be, they take care of each other, need each

Everything I’d hoped for.

I’ve been waiting for this book. Waiting for Neons story, knowing that it would break my heart. Knowing that it would consume me.

Ink and Neon.... well their story is heartbreaking. Both holding onto to so much anger that they’ve let it take over their lives. This is a very emotional book that will have your heart physically hurting. Together these two belong together and learn to heal.

With this being the last book in the series as well as Neon’s story I knew it would be

5 fabulous stars!! I knew Ink and Neon’s story would be life changing! Another Bella J book to add to the favorites list!!

This is book 4 of the “American Street Kings” series. I would not read this as a stand alone. So many characters, so many twists, so much history.

I am amazed anytime this author puts out a book. Shit can get so dark but then so beautiful. Ink and Neon were two broken souls meant for better things. Meant for each other. I absolutely love these two the most!! Neon’s journey

The 2019 MC series of the year. An epic brutal love story set in the darkest MC series I have had read.

The American Street Kings have become my drug of choice making me crave more.

'Destroyed' Means = damage something so badly that it cannot be used Imagine that damaged being a person and that person being who you think of as your soul mate even though they have fought you for years well that is the story of Ink and Neon.

We have been building up to Ink and Neons story since the first book in

After a few duds it was nice to get my hands on this book and realize this was anything but. The characters captured you. You were rooting for them. The author made it so that you could feel their feelings inside of you. Making that connection strong. The story flowed so nicely it was so easy to get wrapped up in the book and forget the world. Once I started I could not put the book down. I was reading at every stop light, when I woke up in the morning, before bed at night and I even took my ...more

This was a story created out of blood and brutality and ended in love. Neon, the beautiful, broken, girl was brutalized with unspeakable torture. Ink, of the American Street Kings MC, has loved her forever and his goal is to help her heal and hope that she will love him in return. Although this book had me cringing at times it also had me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire story. I loved it and couldn't wait for the end to see how it would turn out for these two damaged people. ...more

Since I had read the previous ones in this I just had to keep it going and get into this one. This one is not for the faint of heart either. This one will go in deep the kind that pulls your heart out but leaves it beating. The pace of this one is also one that can sweep us away. Ink and Neon's story will take you over and own you quickly. Ink is a man of his word as will be shown in this. These two will also be the balm to healing with the beauty from their depths emerges to do that. This ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Destroyed by Bella J. is book 4 in the American Street Kings Series. This is the story of Neon and Ink. I have read the previous books which I think did added to my enjoyment of this one. Neon and Ink's story has been building until we finally get to see how things play out for them. Neon always had it in her mind that Ink was a man that got around the ladies. But after Neon was attacked leaving her hurt and Ink stepping up to show his caring side but also his vengeance side.

Healing hurts and payback. What an amazing grand finale! I'm mentally and emotionally exhausted after reading this. Ink was the key to Neon healing, surviving, and moving forward. I liked how love made Ink vulnerable- sexy. It was good to see Neon taking her life back little by little and falling in love with Ink. Confession: Manic's "sacrifice " brought tears to my eyes! Dang! Ink's guilt was gutwrenching! Babyfever ending, Sweet, hot, amazing impactful series.

HOLY HELL! The American Street Kings series is hardcore, and I"m here for it. Destroyed is another story in the series, and per usual, I was on the edge of my seat cover to cover with heart pounding. I gotta say, though each book in the series is about another member finding their person, the suspense factor has started from day 1, or should I say Book 1, so you really MUST READ 1-3 FIRST & IN ORDER! This is Ink & Neon's story, and like the couples before them, nothing was simple, but ...more

From the first to the last, I again devoured other American Street Kings book. The fast paced drama was a roller coaster ride of intense thrills, dark, raw action, and beautiful erotic love scenes that are full of sweet emotions.
Ink and Neon’s story is very different, I waited for it with baited breath and I wasn’t disappointed in the least, it was an exciting addition to the series. The descriptive details and their emotions were excellent A definite must read for those who love gritty MC

This is one tough book starring two of the most intense characters in the American Street Kings, Neon and Ink. It has such grit and strength at its heart and delivers a finale, in this particular series, which is so dramatic and life changing, that it will leave you breathless. Seeing the development of the relationship between Neon and Ink is fabulous and it is bundled up with such a strong plot that it stands out as ray of light. With so many slices of darkness, I, personally, need that light. ...more

Oh gosh!!! Ink and Neon's story is gritty and raw. I have loved Ink since the first book. Neon's story was sad, but she takes back her strength in this book. I absolutely loved this book. It was probably my favorite of the four.

I devoured this book! From the opening scene to the epilogue it was a roller coaster ride. I was kept NEEDING to read just one more chapter...
The pace is fast and intense, the angst raw,the rage palpable and the loving erotic and emotional. I loved Ink and Neon’s story.. I was transported into the story, I could feel the wounds, smell the stink, feel the pain.
I recommend this read to anyone who is into gritty intense MC romance.

Will one man loose everything in his quest for revenge? Ink is a man on his mission, working outside of his club and brothers. He will get revenge for Neon. The love that blossoms between this couple took a tragedy to ignite the flame there. They have so much in common. I really enjoyed this story but part is left unfinished, so I'm assuming there will be a new series starting that will address that - at least I hope so.

I have waited a long time for Ink and Neon’s book. I must say that it it perfect. Ink was totally destroyed when Neon was taken. Her capture left nothing to question. I wonder at times how she survived. This book threw me a loop toward the end. This series is a definite must read. Excellent writing. Spectacular storyline.

“Someone whole. Someone who isn’t broken into pieces.” He shook his head and inched closer. “You don’t get it.” With his palms cupping my cheeks, he lightly brushed his lips against mine before leaning into me. “It’s those broken pieces I want. I want to keep them together, so you don’t have to.”
