If the old saying is true, The Road to Hell Is Paved with Good Intentions, Elijah “Tank” Warren was headed straight there.

He’d built his life around good intentions, and it became a life that would break his heart more times than he could count.

Elijah was born with the need to save everyone. He saved Brandt “Badger” Miller when he was just a kid, and then as an adult he w

Skulls of the Past

This is Tank’s story and it takes you in between the past and the present all laying the background for another great MC read from this author. I liked looking back on some of the things that formed the Skulls MC and Tank was there from the first, forming his life into what it is today. Friendships were made and broken in some of the worst ways. There was one special friendship that has followed him throughout his adult life in the form of an emergency room nurse named Erin. I

Lord have mercy we get another amazing read by Jessie. I stared reading this book and I couldn't help but laugh and cry at some of the things that went on.

We get to meet Tank in this book and what a man he is. He is strong and loyal to the club and the old ladies. He does everything in his power to stay true to his old lady but things get twisted and shizz hits the fan. This is when Tank gets to see who has his back and who doesn't.

This is another one click for all you lovers of MC stories.

Tank takes you through the early years of the skulls and the drama ensued. Tank had his fair share of relationships and failures along with the disappointments but he was faithful to the child that belonged to his old lady who had a lot of problems herself. Tank endured a lot and took a lot of hits for his brothers but in the end when he broke off the relationship with the one woman who ruled his heart left him empty. Now years later he and Erin meet again. His daughter finally has comes to term ...more

Jessie Cooke has kept every book fresh in the Skulls MC series which is something to behold because there are a lot of amazing books in this series, but when she went back in time to those men who were part of the early years, well, I found that awesome & original. Tank has been there since the beginning, and a lot of things have happened to make him the cranky biker he became, but I'm not going to go into detail since going in blind is a hell of a lot more fun at the end of the day.

It's never too late...

Tank's story is so emotional. He loved with all his heart and put his self last for certain people. The love he had for Molly, Macy, Erin and even Sam is what shaped his life. He wasn't perfect by any means but he tried his best. He loved his little girl unconditionally and he proved that by walking away from having the love of his life, Erin. Their love was formed out a friendship that they both needed at the time. As the saying goes, "true love never dies". Erin and Tank

A definite must read book & series

I have loved this series from the beginning, and it just keeps getting better! I love learning about all of the different members, associates, and others involved with the clubs, but I have really enjoyed reading more about the Early Years of the club. I love that each story is so unique, especially since there's so many of them. They're not all tailored the same, like so many other long series' seem to be. I can't wait for more.
This was a heartbreaking story

Tank & Erin

Tank has been with the MC for years all the way back to Doc's presidency. As an officer, he's done and seen a lot. He's also yearned for a family. As the reader views his life current and past, he'll go through joy, pain, loss, and guilt. The reader may wonder if he'll ever find that place he seeks.

I've read a lot of the Skulls books and series. This one is different with lots of emotions Tank, the MC, and the reader will feel. It did take me longer to get into the story and feel invo

Loved the book it was great, the story was written well and the characters were interesting. Tank has always helped his brothers even if it cost him happiness, he has loves plenty and paid for it. The one true love was his daughter Macy, and the one that held his heart was Erin she also carried his baby and he had to walk away from them. Erin and Tank cross paths again and this time he will except with open arms seeing her again. Can he let her leave again?

It’s never too late. That’s the theme of this tragic book which tells the story of Tank. The grumpy old man of the Southside Skulls.
The talent Jessie Cooke has to keep a series going for 34 books, and have readers invested that long, is rare and phenomenal. I really like how her books give you today’s Skulls but also dip back into history to tell the stories of the older characters, which gives backstory to all the characters.

The Early Years are a MUST Read...

I love the Early Years series because it builds the foundation and gives you the entire picture of how the MC families came to be. It’s not always pretty and at times very heartbreaking but it is needed to fully understand the lives of rarely mentioned characters that truly had a huge part in building and shaping the entire MC. Jessie did it again, her imagination will carry you through generations of the Skulls and make you fall more in love with every member a

I have to admit I am fascinated by Doc Marshall. I Read his book first and then proceeded to find out how he passed and how long it was after his beloved Dallas. Now Doc was a cheating dog but a cheating dog you loved to hate.
So reading all of the Early years series bring me to this story. It was fantastic. I high recommend. And no I still don’t know how Doc passes. 🤦‍♀️

The early years are not to be taking lightly. A lot is happening! The fact that really these guys are still dealing with real life now with a lot of the same issues this older generation has dealt with just seems as if the apple does not fall from the proverbial tree! really good! I have followed these men and women from the start and Miss Cooke you never cease to amaze!

Love the early years but...

How wonderful to have another Early Years, but now I want to re-read all of them again since I now know the back story a little more. It's also a memory jogger on Doc, Dallas, Dax, etc . What can I say; it's as if they're real. Of course this book would be a good stand alone novel, but do yourself a favor and start with the first book, Dax. You will not be sorry! Thank you, Ms. Cooke.

Once again, Jessie Cooke has done a great job bringing us into the world of the Skulls MC. I will admit that I am one that prefers to read my books in chronological order and don't enjoy going back to see what happened prior to the first book in the entire series; that being said, I did enjoy this book and appreciate the character work that was done.

Tank gave up so much for his club and the kids, that included Erin the love of his life but years later they meet again. When his family sees what he gave up for them will he finally get his happy ever after biker style??
Once again I love getting to see what happened before we got to meet these original members in the later years

This book takes you back in the past to learn more about Tank. He has been in the MC life for a long time so has much history. I would have preferred to have had thos book first in the series, however it did work reading it in this fashion. Great characters and great storyline.
