Three things Jesse Carter has lost. A former Marine, Jesse used to stand proud of his achievements and live by the code. But when circumstance made him question everything he believed in, those most basic values didn’t feel so important after all.

Knights Rebels.

Three things Jesse Carter has found. Reborn into a brotherhood not so different from the one he left behind, Jesse finds it all too easy to block out his past and claim the role as the Rebels' fun loving player.
Until he meets Bell.

Shy, awkward, and with troubles of her own, Bell Johnson's no stranger to hiding her pain. When Jesse forces himself into her life, she’s at risk of her defences crumbling.

Does Bell have the strength to survive Jesse and his demons or is she fated to become another casualty in the self-destruction of Jesse Carter?


I wake up to the heat of someone’s palm against my shoulder. Twisting around, my hand moves faster than my brain, and I snatch it off me.

“Jesse, it’s me, Bell,” she rushes out before I can take it any further.

“Fuck.” I release my grip on her arm and sit up, forcing myself back to the here and now.

“Did I hurt you?” I reach for her searching for any sign of a mark left by me.

“It’s fine. You barely touched me.” She holds her arm out letting me inspect it. I check it over one more time before releasing her and relaxing.

“You wanna talk about it?” I study her face, eyes calm, soft mouth. She’s not freaking out.

“Just some shit that visits my dreams sometimes, nothing that needs to touch you,” I reply, shocked I’m not retreating.

“I don’t mind, Jesse,” she pushes, and I almost cave. Almost.

“The last thing I want to do is talk about this shit, Bell.” She doesn’t argue or press, and I’m grateful for it. I don’t think I’d be able to keep my cool if she did.

“Come back to sleep.” She lies back down and I follow her. She doesn’t ask me any more questions, or make me feel like I need to tell her everything.

“That ever happens again, don’t wake me,” I warn. A menacing thought strikes through me picturing what could have happened if I didn’t wake in time. She’s lucky I didn’t hurt her, like the last time a woman touched me while I had a nightmare.

“You don’t always have to be so brave, Jesse.” Her hand moves to my dog tags. I don’t stop her. I’m starting to like the feeling of her hands touching them.

“Never tried to be, Bell. But talking doesn’t help me. Never has.” I think back to the time when I did try and it forced me out of control. Talking about those triggers only amplified my insecurities. When death sits afar, mocking you in the dangerous confines of your surroundings, it fucks with your head; nothing was going to change it.

Besides, my issues weren’t what I had done. They were what I had survived. My conscience wasn’t clear and my honor wasn’t clean.

“Promise me you won’t touch me.” I keep my tone even, controlled.

“I promise.” I take her hand in mine and bring it to my lips. Maybe one day I will let someone in. Let her in.

Today isn’t that day.

But today, I didn’t push her away.

That has to count for something.

Our Review
5 STARS*****

Answer me this ladies, what's sexier than a hot, bad ass biker with a dirty mouth? Oh, that's right one who was a former marine and firefighter! Jesse is so hot, you can't help but squirm and do an occasional thigh clinch while reading. The man could literally be the national advertisement for orgasms. 

Alright, now that y'all are up to speed with how hopelessly attractive Jesse is, which is real attractive, let's get back to the book. The man has issues, major ones! Jesse is not only affected by years of abuse but like most of those who serve he also suffers from PTSD. He carries around an overwhelming guilt that he hides behind an overly flirty, I don't give a f$ck attitude. That is until he meets beautiful nurse Bell and everything changes. 

Bell is everything Jesse wouldn't normally want but her awkward innocence has him wanting a taste. Like most women Bell is automatically affected by his charms but knows he is all sorts of wrong for her. She is guarded and lives in a constant stand still ever since the dissaperince of her sister 6 years ago. The last thing the self proclaimed "kinda virgin" needs is a guy like Jesse. However, their attraction for one another becomes to much for them to ignore once Bell enlists the help of Jesse and the MC in finding her missing sibling. 

Join these two as they not only find their way to one another but themselves as well. You will laugh, you might cry but overall you will be moved by an amazing story of a man who doesn't think he deserves to be loved and a women who is brave enough to prove him wrong.
