After reading Precarious we couldn't wait to dive into Melancholy, hello Maddox… This book kept us on our toes from start to finish and certainly didn't disappoint us. This series just keep getting better.
"My world went from beautiful to hell in a matter of hours. That’s all it takes to change a life— a mere few hours."
We meet Maddox and Santana in Precarious, Book 1 of the Jokers’ Wrath MC Series. Melancholy is told in past and present chapters and dual POV. We are taken back in time where we learn of Santana's painfully heartbreaking past, life before Maddox wasn't roses, thank god he saved her.
"You decide how you want to honor the work you’ve put into your life so far. You give it up, or you get up, take my hand, and keep fu€kin’ fighting.”
Maddox got more than he bargained for the day he saved Santana... He is one hell of an alpha male, he's controlling, bossy, dominating and fiercely protective. That dirty mouth of his *mmmm Maddox*.
Santana isn't a pushover but she knows when she can get away with mouthing off and when she needs to reel it in. While Maddox might be her saviour he is also everything she thought she had to stay away from. Thinking that a good man is everything she needs and not a biker, Santana starts dating Alec a man that from the outside looks like he has it all together, but looks and actions can be can be deceiving.
After getting herself into a situation that only Maddox can help her out of Santana realizes she’s in love with Maddox but doesn't think she is good enough for a man like Maddox, how could a man like Maddox ever love a girl like her...
"If you would open your fu€kin’ eyes instead of lookin’ at me like I’m the worst fu€kin’ thing you could have in your life, you would see what’s right in front of you."
Maddox NEEDS Santana, she bought something out in him the he never thought he could feel for someone. As much as he wants her he thinks Santana deserves so much better than life in a MC. Mack (Maddox's brother) lays it out for Santana.
After playing the cat and mouse game with each other Maddox and Santana’s chemistry together is like fireworks on New Years... If you thought their sexual tension and sassy banter was hot, when they get together you will need to fan yourself.
Maddox holds some important information, five years he's kept this from her, holding it back knowing she would do something stupid. It will break her when she finds out he's known and kept from her. How will Santana take the news? Because when she finds out all hell is about to break lose in more ways than one.
Santana and Maddox’s relationship and lives are going to be put to the test, will they survive the heartache thet comes their way?
Melancholy was an awesome follow up to Precarious. We are loving this series, the characters you can't help but love them.There is so much we wanted to say but can't without spoiling the book. If you loved Precarious you are going to love Melancholy.
We can't wait to dive into Anguish, Mack’s book is definitely keeping us intrigued. Congratulations Bella Jewel on another amazing book and addition to the Jokers’ Wrath MC series.
I loved the first book in this series, but Bella has taken it to a whole new level with this book, what can I say other than this outstanding and a must read. Krypt and Ash and the rest of the crew are back in this installment. This is Maddox and Santana's story and wow what an emotional ride it is. This book will make you laugh, cry, and I mean ugly cry, it is a beautifully written story and I loved it from the first page. You cannot help but fall in love with all of the characters. Maddox is one tough alfa male and he will do anything to protect his club, they are his family and family stick together, Santana is fiesty and doesn't take any s*** from Maddox and I love the banter between these two, and the chemistry between these two is hot, but Maddox has kept something from Santana and he could risk losing her, but he will do everything in his power to protect her. You also get to meet Mack who becomes a favourite of mine in this book. This book will take you on an emotional journey page after page and I highly recommend you add this to your TBR. Well done Bella, this was a beautifully written and I cant wait for the next part in this series.
