Oh my dayz. How did I wait so long to read something by this author.

This was a great read. I read this pretty quickly with my heart in my mouth. I didn’t know how it was gonna go.

I am loving this series and this was another great addition. I’ll definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

Lean In is a PHENOMENAL read.
I can't begin to describe the complete and utter rage I felt reading this book! The horrors that Mani and Ella were put through just outraged me. Every emotion conceivable is felt at one point or another throughout this book.
Lean DiCico, is the VP of the Royal Bastards, Pittsburgh, Pa. Chapter and Mani is the stepdaughter of Giuliano Gallo, head of the Pittsburgh Mafia. She lives with her stepbrother, Stephano and stepsister, Catarina who makes her life a living he*

I'm not going to rate this book because I think I may have a bad copy. I mean some of the things other people said in their reviews I didn't read. Mine was full of mistakes and misspelled words. Read like a rough draft. Some of it didn't make sense so I don't want to give a bad rating if there was something wrong with the copy and I sure hope it was otherwise it was awful. I'll wait a see how her next book is. This is a new to me author so I don't know her work. I still have a good understanding ...more

Great Read. The author has given us a well written emotion and action packed MC Read. I fell in love with the characters. We have Lean, VP for the Royal Bastards Pittsburgh Chapter, who will do whatever it takes to protect the club and what’s his and we have Mani who will do whatever it takes to care for his sister, Ella - who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. Both Mani and Ella are being held and treated horrendously by their step siblings. The siblings hold Ella’s medicare care over Mani’s head fo ...more

One of the best MC books out their. Its no wonder I love this series! It is gritty and raw. You are getting to know all of these characters intimately and it is one series that will not let you go! This is Pittsburg Chapter and it does not skimp on a story. It was a quick read for me and I am thankful that this author is one of the premier authors out there. Miss Voss is an incredible writer and will leave you breathless! Lean and Mari will dig into your soul, so get ready for a HUGE amount of a ...more

I've read several royal bastards books, but the evil woman and her brother in this book is sadistic. Lean is the VP and when he sees the "girl" who falls out of the closet who goes nuts. There's heat, danger, death and sickness. Didn't like how the book ended but have my suspicions. Can't wait to read her next book to be sure. HEA for the couple anyway. ...more

This story had me on the edge of my seat. I have not read a book like this in a while and I found myself addicted and enthralled at every page. It might be considered a dark read for some but for me it was just one of the crazy borderline crazy character stories that just works so well. The action, the passion, the dialogue... these things came together to create such a unique and epic story that I could not put it down. I need more of these characters and in this world, like now!!! LOL.

Wow! This was an amazing read. Lean rescues Mani and Ella from unbelievable atrocities and then the war is on! This book was fast paced, engaging, wonderfully written and filthy in the BEST possible way. Lol. This is definitely one of my favorite Royal Bastards books! Loved it!!

A little different...

For an MC book, this one was a little different for me. It didn't feel like part of an MC book for most of the story. Very insta-love, not just lust.

Deja Vos delivers a great story. This is not hearts and rainbows. It’s an insta attraction but also lots of drama and angst. Definitely triggers for some. I loved it and can’t wait for more in the series.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Maní is rescued by Lean from a hell of a house where her stepbrothers had her and her little sister subjected to a different tortured. Lean is not a good man, he is a former drug addict, and ex-con and with his hands stained with blood, but for Mani this man is her hero. He finds in Mani the best drug of all: happiness, love and acceptance.
They will have to face a bunch of flesh traffickers and many corrupts to ensure the well-being of this women, but the RB never back down from a fight.

OMG!! Lean In: Royal Bastards MC Pittsburgh, PA -Amazing Read!

Deja Voss has given her readers another look into the dark, dangerous, gritty world that is the Royal Bastards MC and the true meaning of Ride or Die. The story begins with Lean, VP of the RBMC charter in Pittsburgh, PA who is edgy, dark and sexy as he lives each day trying to overcome his demons. Lean plays hard and loves hard but his whole world is about to explode when he rescues a broken woman from the evil Gallo siblings. One loo

Oh god, I'm so shocked.

Lean In brings the Royal Bastards MC to Pittsburg and the Prez, Bruiser and his son the VP Lean are to visit the Gallo Mansion to try and work out a deal with the Cartel. 

Lean is not happy about being there or negotiating the family especially Catarina. When he hears banging he ignores Catarina's excuses and opens a closet door.

Mixed story with a HFN at the end

Lean In is the first book in the Royal B@stards MC, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania series. I have read a few other RBMC books by other authors but this is the first book I have read by Deja Voss. I was not sure what to expect as you just never know whether you will click with a "new to you" author or not but the book description intrigued me so I thought I would give it a read. This book introduces the Pittsburgh chapter of the RBMC and some of it's members. The story

OMG…ok, going a little backwards here but I have to comment on the ending (just finished book) big, huge cliffhanger! Ok, got it off my chest. Loved this book. From beginning to end I was completely engrossed to the point where I did not sleep. I could not put it down and kept waiting for certain events and was surprised when things progressed differently. Both Lean and Mani, both were easy to relate to and were strong characters. On Mani’s part she didn’t believe herself to be strong but with L ...more

New Author for me and I'm already her biggest fan ❤

This is the first book I've read by Deja Voss and I freaking loved it. I have read several other books in the Royal Bastards series and have loves them as well. I love that Lean is so gentle and affectionate with Misty. I love that even though his father first comes off as a tough,stubborn it's my way or the highway MC quickly see his love for his son and doing what is right not only for the woman he loves but for all women who h

I couldn't stop reading this. What a great read from an author that I've never read anything before. This RBMS story centers on Lean the VP of the Pittsburgh chapter and Mani, a stepdaughter in the Gallo crime family. At a meeting with her stepbrother and stepsister, Lean hears noise from a closet and immediately investigates it. He doesn't hesitate to break the door in and finds Mani hysterical, beaten. and badly bruised. He vows to take her out of there so she doesn't have to go thru anymore t ...more

A new author for me and love it. Lean is the VP in the Royal Bastard MC. When his club being attack, he would make sure who ever done it will pay. But he's smart. That's why he come to the snake pit to see what and how he can cut their head off. He never expect to find a woman lock in a closet, bruised and unconscious. He also doesn't expect to have "girl" to capture his attention like lightning struck. But those snake who attact his club and make the girl captive, and be sex slave won't sit sti ...more

I’m a ‘Burgh girl and I absolutely loved how the author incorporated the city into this story! Girl even ran inside Primanti’s!

I like how alpha the H was with the h. He was immediately all in and I’m into the insta love. He did start thinking the L word pretty much hours after meeting her which I thought was a bit much but *shrugs*. I was frustrated with the h for quite a while but warmed to her.

My issues were with the men’s emotional reactions. Nothing wrong with men crying but you have a sid

3 1/2 Stars!

Mani’s history was packed full with potential PTSD moments that had me wondering how she survived and continued living.
Horror upon horror as she grew up with abuse and torture at the hands of her stepbrother and stepsister.
I thought she recovered at a phenomenal rate from a starved, tortured, beaten, raped, mute waif to a functioning woman complete with sexual feelings for her savior Lean.
Lean was actually quite sensitive and patient with Mani as he fell for her at first sight.

If you have not read any stories on the RBMC then you need. Especially this one by Deja Voss. Her books do have a bit of a trigger but I am good with it. If you have triggers of any kind of abuse then I suggest you tread carefully. Now lets meet Lean. He is one tough man and moody too. He is one to take care of business then ask questions later. Then trouble comes into the club and he needs to get a handle on it. He gets a call to meet some pretty powerful and crazy people. He does not want to b ...more

Full of torment and torture for the most part until those doing the damage hit on the wrong people. No one messes with the MC and teaching a lesson is something they do well and in the best of ways. Mani is surprising as a character, seeming quite weak and almost pitiful at first but as you get to know her she is amazingly strong, only doing what she is to keep her younger sister safe. There are twists and turns, some violence and abuse. The plot held my attention and for the most part I loved t ...more

Mani lives in a mansion and most of the time she is tortured and beaten, pimped out.. She the captive of her own making by contract, She does this for one person and one person alone and it's not herself. When Lean rescues her, all she knows is she has to get back. She's got a contract. What happens if she breaks it? She doesn't even want to imagine. All Lean sees is a woman who is beaten down by life and needs help and somewhere in his hardened soul and heart, he feels a glimmer of something fo ...more

A very well written MC and a book in Royal Bastards MC Pittsburgh, PA series. A fast-paced and standalone book which is in a series and is better reading all books, but not necessary. It will keep you engrossed from start to finish because it has action, adventure, drama, danger, suspense, intrigue, mystery/secrets, surprises, strength, courage, betrayal, trust, romance, passion, and love. This emotional roller coaster of a book will have you hanging on by the seat of your pants and not letting ...more

Oh my word! Such a beautiful, steamy and enthralling addition to an amazing series that has bewitched me from the very beginning. Once the story begins to unfold, it's fast and keeps your wanting to know more.

Lean In is an intense, gripping and enthralling love story, with a lot of twists and turns that you can't begin to imagine. It's full of unconditional love based on letting go of ones insecurities and having faith. It is about believing in love and life, a life that has broken their hearts
