Start your review of Joy (Hell's Handlers MC Book 7)
Joy was the seventh book in Lilly Atlas’ Hell’s Handlers MC series. It was a quick but action filled Christmas update for all of our MC favorites.

Atlas wrote it from various perspectives with each MC member and old lady having a voice. True to form, there was also an MC conflict that will carry over into the series. Although anything but lighthearted, it was great to catch up with each couple as well as get set up for future books.

Additionally, Atlas gave us a bonus regarding Viper. It wasn’t

It's the Holiday Season but that doesn't mean things are Merry and Bright for the Hell's Handlers, it's quite the opposite in fact. I didn't make it through the first chapter without breaking down in tears, for me this chapter hits WAYYYYYYY to close to home. Shit I'm tearing up already and I'm just trying to write my review, I'm sure most of you wont be as affected by it as I was and I wont go into details because I will not drop any spoilers just have some tissues nearby just in case.

Loved this book. I swear this series just keeps getting better and BETTER!! In this book we get glimpses of all characters from this series plus a bonus of a few whom I hadn’t met. We are with them while they celebrate the holidays and watch as they have life changing moments!!
We absolutely loved this story from beginning to end as Lilly is one hell of a storyteller.This story was intriguing and one filled with love and romance and a whole lot of sexiness but, the story also had you laughing and shedding a few tears along the way to.

I loved how this story was all about each individual MC member and their old ladies that took place around the Christmas Holiday Season and we loved seeing what family traditions they have or are creating .I have to say that Maverick made

Merry Christmas Hells Handlers!!

It was so great to see where all the men and their women are and believe me these people have been very busy. We have babies being born, pregnancies, engagements and marriage. Oh, don’t think this is all sunshine and roses though because besides one very sad storyline the Hells Handlers MC has a new MC looking to come into their territory and they have been stalking their ole ladies. There is a war on the horizon which they are preparing for. After all Crank and

I have to say this series just gets better and better. This author really captured me with this series.

This book is a Christmas book and taking a look at each couple and how their lives are so far. And let me tell you it is busy... Babies being born, pregnancies, engagements, etc... And then to make it so much more interesting a new enemy emerges and man let me tell you this one is not going to go down easy. This is a hell of a fight in store for this club.

Loved this holiday read from Lilly Atlas and the Hell's Handlers MC! I am a sucker for a book that catches us up with our favorite couples. This book will have you feeling so much depending on the couple. My emotions were all over the place. Dangers lay ahead for the Hell's Handlers and it had me on the edge of my seat! Can't wait to see what is next!

An absolutely outstanding read that brings you some updates on many of the characters from past books, adding a little reminder of their history; as well as current loves, problems and a whole lot of bedroom heat! I loved catching up with these crazy people and loved where they are now, and it's Christmas so that is an added element to this wonderfully written book that has so much extra going on that you will cry, laugh, sigh and maybe even cry a bit more, but you definitely will not put this ...more

Now this is the type of Christmas story that I'll always love best, as it's in Handlers style! The brilliant Lilly Atlas brought us a new story which has multiple POVs so we could get caught up on everything going on for those drool worthy bikers, and the women they love over the holidays. I don't want to get into a bunch of details, because everything certainly isn't all wrapped up with a pretty bow, or in Mav's case, a pornabow if it's up to him. Lawd, he was killing me with the pornaments, ...more

Joy Hell's Handlers MC #7 by Lilly Atlas was a great holiday read filled with love and emotion , as you follow each couple of the Hell's Handlers MC during the Christmas season. The club led by Copper who is this no nonsense tough gruff President is trying to put the last year behind his club, one that was filled with death, trauma, chaos as well as fighting enemies old and new. Will these larger than life bikers be able to put all of the disorder behind them so they can come together as a ...more
Merry Christmas, Hell's Handlers style! This book isn't your typical romance, following one couple finding their HEA. Rather, it is more of a "catch up" with all of the couples we have come to love, as we've read their stories. Don't get me wrong, there is still plenty of MC action and danger involved, and there is still a story line to follow, but I enjoyed visiting with old friends!

This story isn't told from one character, or even one couple's point of view. Instead, it moves from character to

OMG what a fabulous book. I usually put this at the end, if it applies, but let me tell you that I can’t recommend this book enough. While it is a standalone, I my humble opinion it’s a much better reading experience I’d suggest starting with book 1, Zach. “Joy” was just that for me a Joy to read. Oh don’t get me wrong, there was still a lot of thrilling biker actions as once again the Hell’s Handlers are heading for trouble, but what a heartfelt read.

It’s Christmas time. A time for Joy, but

This one's about all of Hell's Handlers.

Instead of focusing on a single couple, the author gives us a look at the whole club and what they have gone through over the last year. It hasn't been an easy one. On the enemy front while removing one they've added another. As always the club takes care of their own. protecting and when necessary rescuing. Some enemies are beyond what they can accomplish. Doctors and science play a role for some of their families. Still, no one is alone and the support

In this unique book about all of the Hell's Handlers MC members and their wives/ol' ladies, we get to hear from everyone's POV, and while some people may not care for that style, I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!! I am in complete and utter awe of this book and as I was reading, I realized I had literally been on a roller coaster ride of emotions that I didn't want to get off of. I LOVE that we still get that kindle-on-fire chemistry from everyone, even as we find out how they're handling things that are ...more

Merry Christmas Hells Handlers!

oh I have missed these guys! it was lovely seeing them again and experiencing their highs and lows at Christmas with them. Of course their festive plans are not going to run smoothly with a new MC encroaching on their territory, new baby arriving (that was hilarious, love Izzy!!), an idiotic President that really needs to think carefully before opening his mouth and a storyline that run along in the background that made me cry.

Five stars!!! Joy was a real joy to read. No pun intended :) Lilly Atlas did an amazing job with this book. Joy is a book with stories from all the Hell’s Handlers and there ladies during the Christmas season. From Zach and Toni all the way to Screw and Jazz's budding connection. So many life changes events for the Handlers; Some of great happiness while others are full heartbreaking tears. Chapter 1 just killed me. What a way to start a book, Lilly! I love how this

I give this a 3.5

This is the seventh book in the Hell's Handlers MC series. These are usually stand alones, but this one I think you should read the others first.

I say that because we get chapters from every previous character, this isn't just about one couple. It's the entire MC.

Don't let the title fool you. There is a little Joy in it, but not a ton.

I'm on the fence about this book. I don't like what's happening to Cassie. I was happy for Izzy and Shell. I was mad at Copper. What's going on

(5 stars)

This was absolutely a Christmas novel... Hell's Handlers' style. In no way shape or form was this a cutesy, fluffy, bubble-gum biker story, but written from almost every character's POV it told each persons story in the run up to Christmas. Of course there are plenty of sweet and romantic moments, but there is also lots of drama and a threat to the club that I imagine will be dealt with in the next book, whoever that may be about. I'm not going to give away any details

I have loved every entry into the Hell's Handlers MC series but this book... this book has it, or rather, them all. That's right, Lilly Atlas gives readers Christmas early with a book that gives us time to catch up with ALL our favorite couples! Not just seeing them in the clubhouse either, but chapters dedicated to showing us where they are now and it's AWESOME! I loved every single word, even then ones that made me cry!

Wow, this was a wonderful read, the series just gets better and better! We get to spend time with all of our favourite characters over the festive period, told from multiple character points of view, we get their highs and lows and see how they are doing. There’s some twists and turns and some new characters to keep an eye out for, we also get a hint at stories yet to come.

I devoured this book in book in one sitting, I was hooked from the first page. I loved catching up with everyone and hope

A great holiday story

I really like these type of books where you get everyone's POV's, as well as a recap of what's going on in their lives. It was exciting, hilarious, and no matter what the circumstances are, these people are a family through and through.
The only thing that I didn't like about this was that there were a few questions left unanswered at the end. It doesn't state that there will be another book, but I'm hoping that the story won't end here. I really liked the short bonus story

I want to read all of your books, but I am having difficulty with the misuse of grammar and the typos. I am a technical writer who has a passion for accuracy. Kick me to the side, or please contact me for my offer to copy edit your books. It would make all the difference to me if the books were flawless. Thank you for giving me an outlet ...more

Just wow!

Lilly just never ceases to amaze me! What a great book! Since I've read all the books and have loved every single one of those men, this was especially great for me! From the first page my emotions were set into motion! Man..I even had to put it down a few times so that I could get a grip! The way Lilly writes makes you feel as though you are living the situation yourself. But in the end...of course, we get our happy ending!

I can't wait for the next book Lilly writes!

Lilly I'm gonna start off by saying I have shed a few tears during this book. The way way you wrote this story I could just feel all of their emotions down to my bones. This book has a lot that happens some good, and some not so good. We get to get caught up with all of our favorite characters, and even get to meet a few more. All the men are still just as alpha and hot with their take charge attitudes. Let's not forget about our sweet, sassy, and kick ass heroines who keep our favorite men in ...more

You get to catch up with all of your favourite couples and see where they are in their lives, along with all of their ups and downs.

Any time an author brings her characters back together in one book is always a good thing for me personally. I love to catch up and see what's been going on and Joy brought up all the old feels and created some new ones. Mav, you kill me still and your dirty mind/mouth is a really good thing :-)
There were some tears, there was a little bit of anger, but there was so much love that nothing else mattered. These characters hit you hard and stick with you for a long time. Thanks for giving us a

This book literally had all the feels from happy to sad. I love love love Lily and her series.

Amazing addition to this awesome series cant wait for
