Hashtag and Shelby’s story is one of heartache, hard times and struggles and finally peace. This book is full of suspense and I couldn’t put my candle down for wanting to know what happened next. They were high school sweethearts and at Hashtag’s patch in party for the club things go awry. 12 years later Shelby shows up at the clubhouse door with her daughter missing. Old feelings arise but the most important thing is finding their daughter. Will they find her in time? Will they all come out uns ...more

What a fabulous story! I just had to stop life and read this book in one sitting. No breaks and no drink, just reading. The tension was immense! The plot was gut-wrenching and every mother’s worst nightmare. I simply had to bite my nails and read to the end.

Shelby was young when she and Wyatt were together and made a rash decision and has lived for thirteen years with the consequences. She needs help now and Wyatt is one of her only hopes. The tension and long held feelings are real, oh so delic

description
I still find myself very happy with the fact that I've been introduced to these two authors. Dark Secret was a really good second book in this series. I will admit that I liked book one a little better though.

The writing was still solid and the overall story for this second chance romance was good. But I did find myself feeling bad for the leading man Hashtag and I'm not sure that I would have been as in favor of his and leading lady Shelby's HEA if he didn't want it so much. After everything h

When Shelby went to see Hashtag, the man she loved, to share some life changing news the course of their lives were altered when she saw something she wasn’t expecting but rather than asking questions she fled and they haven’t spoken since.

Hashtag never knew why Shelby left only that she was gone. He has moved forward with his life until she shows up 13 years later however the bigger surprise wasn’t seeing her but finding out that he was a father and that his daughter is missing.

This book was ok

I really liked the first book in this series. This not as much. (This review will contain spoilers). I felt what Shelby did was unforgivable. Even if what she thought she saw really did happen—which it didn’t. To disappear for 12 years and never tell the man you loved that you had his baby. I could see if it was a one night stand, but they were in a deep relationship. He was gonna propose the night she thought she saw him with another woman (actually 2 other women). But it wasn’

Dark Secret is the second book in the Black Hoods MC series. This story had me enthralled from the first page. Hashtag and Shelby have a past, a painful past. Shelby leaves Hashtag abruptly and he has no idea what has happened to her. 13 years later she goes to him when their daughter turns up missing, a daughter he has no idea about! This is a story of love, deep loss, forgiveness and pure joy! I absolutely loved this story and cannot recommend it highly enough! This is a must read!!

Holy crap was this a great book! This book is about Hashtag, aka Wyatt and Shelby. They were together & happy until Shelby left him due to a mid-understanding. She comes back years later when her daughter goes missing & asks Hashtag to help find her. This sets up their reconnection. There is a lot of drama in this book and it will keep you on the edge of your seat! But once I started it, I could not put it down. I had to finish it. There was one part near the end that about made me throw my iPad ...more

I loved this couldn't put it down. Second book in the black hoods MC series this one focus's on Hashtag , Mr sexy alpha Geek computer nerd. Shelby was his highschool love, his ride or die till she cut him out of her life on the night he patched in, no reason as far as he's concerned but a huge one in her mind. Now she's back in need a favour and with a big surprise 13 yrs later. Once again every character is likeable and believable , exciting story line and the funniest epilogue. Can't wait for ...more

OMG! I am loving this series!! This story was heart wrenching!! Have you ever made a decision based on a lie or misperception? Well, Shelby did and wow did it change her world and that of Wyatt’s forever. Can the truth come to light and set them both free? Can love overcome the hurts and secrets of the past? This story is full of twists and turns, of heart break and sadness. Of love and redemption. Life gets messy sometimes and when it does can Wyatt save the day? Amazing!!!

Hash and Shel's story was so fantastic I couldnt put it down I devoured it in one sitting. The story kept me on the edge of my seat with my heart in my throat the whole time waiting to see what was going to happen. It was the perfect amount of serious and funny the characters were fantastic. If you're looking for a different type of MC series this one is fantastic. ...more

Soo..I dont like Shelby

Ok, but had the potential to be so much better. What really got me is Shelby. Hashtag never gave her a reason to question his commitment and loyalty to her, but the second she saw the scene in his room she ghosts him. She doesn't confront or sit down and have an adult conversation. Hash was constantly mistreated by her friend and family, but stuck around bc he loved her, and she couldn't give him the benefit of doubt. I feel like she was forgiven too easily. Twelve whole

Mmmm this story is deliciously naughty and nerdy at the same time. Hashtag is our MC hero who has geek skills that help save the day. Most impressive is his forgiving nature.

Shelby our heroine at a young age has several surprises in store. On the day she discovers she is pregnant she finds Hashtag in a compromising position... or does she?! Misunderstandings lead her to run away and raise her baby on her own.

I love the parallels that our hero and his daughter have even though they have never me

Hashtag is ready to start the next chapter of his life. Shelby is not happy with the current situation. This is a story that shows there’s more to the MC lifestyle than riding a motorcycle. There are men who use more than their bodies to get things done. Shelby has a daughter that steals the show even though we don’t see that much of her.

This is one more example of why these two authors are good at what they do. I want a book that I can enjoy from beginning to end. I don’t want

WOW, I loved this addition to the Black Hoods MC. The book is very well written with an action packed suspenseful emotional storyline that touched my heart. The characters were so well written I felt like I felt every ounce of grief, pain and happiness they were feeling right along with them.

This is a second chance at love storyline that will have you rooting for a happy ending. A couple is ripped apart and then years later thrust back together under the worst possible of circumstances: their 12

Dark Secret is the 2nd book in the Black Hood MC series and the 2nd book I have read. Book 1 Dark Protector was a really good book but Dark Secret is even better. I couldn't put the book down. Avelyn Paige & Geri Glenn have done a great job together on this series and I cannot wait for book 3.

In the book Wyatt Hayden or Hashtag is the main character. On the day of his Patching party 13 years ago the love of his life Shelby just disappears on him without a word, note, or phone call. Hash never go

Shelby and Hashtag

Young love runs hot but can be unforgiving. Shelby was so happy she couldn't wait to share her news with the love of her life until she sees something she can't forgive.

He didn't know why she left. Why she wouldn't answer his call.

When her daughter/their daughter is missing she can no longer keep her thirteen-year secret from him. There is no question if he will do everything to find the child he always wanted to have even after missing all these years with her. The questions
