"Beatrice Lafayette was going to be mine."

Dead Man Walking is the sixth book in The Fallen Men. Although it can be read as a stand-alone, this MC Series is an absolute must-read. Each character is complex and the connection between them is carefully constructed with care. Priest is the Enforcer of the Fallen MC and is the "psycho" killer of the group. When he is on a mission, nothing will ever get in his way. Somehow throughout the violence and the chaos he has found light in Bea Lafaye

Dead Man Walking is book 6 in the Fallen Men series. It follows Bea and Priest who we have met previously in the series. These books are stated as being able to read as standalones but I personally feel to get the full picture and a better understanding of this world these books should be read in order.

Prior to this book I had read and genuinely enjoyed all of the books in the series and very much anticipated this book/couple but I will say that I am left underwhelmed by this story a

Dead Man Walking was the crazy bone chilling worthy book that we were waiting for from one of the most messed characters from the series yet!! This story was intense, gritty, action packed and it left you wanting more from every single character.

Bea has a always been a good god fearing girl. She loves her sister, is good to her mother, and she has never skirted on the wrong path. But that’s all about to change when she learns that she’s in danger and the most notorious and ruthless man in th

3.75 stars for Priest & his “Little Shadow” Bea!

"I'll ruin you," I promised boldly, excitement in my balls, in my chest, a percussion beat like ceremonial drums.

"So ruin me," she agreed. "Pull my hair, bite my neck, leave me bruised and ruined by your love until every inch of my body is singing for you."

I first read Welcome to the Dark Side and it instantly became my absolute favorite MC read. Loulou and Zeus were angsty, emotional, & hot af, so when I saw that her little sister Bea is gett

Do you think you could fall in love with a psycho?


A quick definition of psycho is someone who has serious mental problems and who may act in a violent way without feeling sorry for what they have done.

That is the perfect description for Priest. A man who because of the way he grew up has lost all sense of emotion. A man who will do anything and kill anyone without remorse to protect his club and their families. A man who at this point is so scarred and.... well..... psychotic he doesn't even

Not all love stories play out in the light. Some of the best romances occur in the veil of shadows.

This was just okay. Not as exciting as I hoped it would be, or as I hoped Priest would be. A lot of problems I had with this book, are the same problems I had with the last book, minus the romance and the repetitive plot from the last book, but I did enjoy it still, even if it didn't necessarily live up to my expectations, which were high, to be fair.

Welcome to the dark Side is in my all-time favorite shelf..I don't want to hate LouLou. Sorry, Bea and Priest aren't worth it.
✨ The pace is off.
✨ Writing is cringy AF.
An example :

"My pussy was tender, silk petals crushed under the force of Priest's savagery, opening torn, by his thick unyielding erection."

Also I stopped counting after the 30th metaphor. I devolped an allergy for words like peach, fuzzy, ripe and cinnamon.

I didn’t like this and I’m bored of the same dark romance novels being released. I was trying to convince myself that I liked it and at least some parts were enjoyable but no it wasn’t. I’ll give it 2 stars though because I managed to finish it.

Let’s end this year with a bang because Dead Man Walking by Giana Darling is phenomenal!!

I have always been a fan of The Fallen Men series and ever since Daddy Zeus in Welcome to the Dark Side (The Fallen Men #2), this series has become one of my favourite MC romance series. These books are never cookie cutter and I LIVE for this series. Dead Man Walking just proved how phenomenal this series is.

I didnt hate this book but didnt like it either, i had so many problems with it especially the writing style which is detailed as fuck and repetitive. After reading welcome to the dark side which i liked, i thought giving her other books a try, starting this one cuz i was curious to know more about Priest and Bea. It was boring. Almost 500 pages, and maybe 200 pages of dialogue and other 300 are just inner POV which was again, repetitive. Ok let me start by saying what i liked. Nothing

I tried reading the other books in this series but wasn’t able bc of the author’s writing style. I really tried to like this and was enjoying( only bea and Priest moments) but in my opinion this book had no reason to be this long. Like seriously I was so bored of all the drama.

Fancy words, pretentious and flowery prose, an honest albeit not the greatest attempt at clever, more mature writing. It just didn't work for me. This could be one of those it's me not the book situations, but I can honestly say I tried. Maybe the author over indulged with the jargon, and that was the problem.

Falling for a psycho has never been so hot! Priest’s darkness will devour her soul while Bea’s light will make him whole. The author will take you to the darkside once again with Priest and Bea’s unconventional, yet no less passionate, love story. Get ready to push your own limits and immerse yourself in their all-consuming darkness and light.

Bea is a good girl. She’s sunshine and sweetness. She’s devoted to her church and community. Yet her fantasies have always been about one man and veer more

Dark, twisted, angsty, tormented, thrilling... this book is amazing!
It is by far the darkest of all the Fallen Men books.
At almost 20 years old, little Bea is all grown up. There is darkness and deviancy behind this sweet, angelic, God loving girl. She has been drawn to Priest, the Fallen MC enforcer since she was 14 years old. His psycho vibes and cold demeanor speak to her.
Priest is a psychopath with a terrible past. He is closed off, tormented, possessive and obsessive. He imparts the outla

Ok, so don't hate on me, but I just could not get into this book. The first 20% was amazing -- I am in no way disputing that. But after that mark, it just became *so* boring. The suspense aspect was interesting, but I was in no way surprised about who the big bad actually was. If anyone has seen a religious cult documentary, you will know who it is right away. There was definitely some good suspenseful scenes, but overall I just saw the entire thing coming, and after all the reviews I read about ...more

Dead Man Walking was the sixth book in Giana Darling’s Fallen Men MC series.

Bea and Priest. Two total opposites. One is pure innocence and light. The other is a psychopathic killer and dark. They don’t fit. Yet, they do.

Bea was the innocent sister to LuLu, book two and the wife of Zeus, the MC President. Bea and LuLu had lived a very sheltered childhood in a very strict religious home. LuLu ventured out - Bea did not. With her ties to LuLu and her sweet spirit towards everyone, she was embraced
Priest McKenna Is the Fallen MC’s Enforcer. He is cold...ruthless...except with one feisty little thing called Bea Lafayette. She is the Prez’s sister in law and should be off limits to a heartless man like Priest. When a serial killer is targeting the women of the town, can Priest protect them all? He knows he shouldn’t want more from innocent Bea but tell his growing heart that. There might be danger all around in their world but Bea might be the most dangerous for Priest.

A lot of women don’t write MC clubs well

But I’ll get to that in a minute

First off I read the secret affair by this author and enjoyed it I even read enthralled and that was enjoyable for me too because it was messed up dirty kinda taboo but most of all written well.

Now here’s the thing I have read a lot of MC by authors and let me say... a lot of women spoil it for me because they seem to think that the men in the club probably just lie around there saying

I was really REALLY looking forward to this book! And I wasn't disappointed! Although, this book constantly reminded me of Flame and Maddie, Tillie Cole's Hades Hangmen series. So, for me, the story wasn’t unique… more like ‘been there, done already read that’. Nevertheless, very nice read!! Bea and especially Priest's story will stay with me for a while. One of the better Fallen Men books!
Loved all the artwork floating around on FB and Insta.

oh my god, WOW 🤯

Giana did not disappoint with Priest and Bea’s story 🔥🔥🔥

Priest is a psychopathic killer with no feelings, he’s the MC enforcer and is known as a hard criminal. Bea is the little virgin church girl who has a thing for bad men, she’s had a little ‘crush’ on Priest for a long time and finally acts on it.

This was SO STEAMY and amazing, the serial killer on the loose shocked me! i didn’t figure out who it was. Overall perfect addition to the Fallen Men Series and i highly recommend.

Oh my soul- what an epic story! Bea and Priests story is hauntingly original, beautiful, and explosively intense! Dead Man Walking is Giana’s darkest entry yet- and perhaps the most novel of the series. Dark. Delicious. Gritty. Psychologically intense. I was consumed from the very first word! The drama, the violence, and the mystery surrounding the romance are compelling enough on their own, but where this book really distinguishes itself amidst the already magnificent other books in the series ...more

Dead Man Walking is probably the darkest and most beautiful love story by Giana Darling. This is the kind of twisted and raw romance that shakes you to the core. Darkness has own light that only love can find. And I felt it in every page. Priest is the greatest antihero created by this author who made my heart bleed, break and ache. And Bea's pure innocence and heart like an ocean made my soul fill with joy and hope. And this is their messy, chaotic and unconventional happily ever after.

„Let me follow you into the dark.”

It's no secret that I'm totally obsessed with MC romances. Those who know me, know also that if there’s a psychotic, cold and emotionally unavailable character in the book, I will most likely fall in love with him. So Dead Man Walking is a dream come true for all of my bookish wishes- it has this dark and dangerous vibe typical for biker books, anti-hero that’s just to die for and a fabulous female lead.

Fair warning that this book is DARK. So if dark is not your jam,then please approach with extreme caution .
One of the main things I loved is the way the author wrote Priest's inner thoughts and demons. My heart broke for him.
