NAILED IT!!!!!! EVERY SINGLE BOOK this lady release's is gold! love her, love this series there was so much to live up to from the first book but hands down this is my fav, Maddox my god, I need him in my life and the love these two had for each other gave me butterflies in my tummy I can not wait to next month for Mack's story counting the days!! I feel like it's actually an insult to Bella Jewel to only give this book 5 stars for this review!
i loved this book but i must admit Santana really got on my nerves i just wanted to bitch slap her sometimes. Maddox is your all time man's man straight talking alpha male that just makes you want to take all your clothes off. I really like Ms Bella Jewels style of writing and have read many of her other books. can't wait for mack's book to come out
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.
The second book in the Jokers Wrath MC book. I have said it before and I will say it again.....this woman knows how to write MC books. I love the world that she creates, not too over the top, just enough romance, sexy and bad boys!!!
Maddox is the president of the Jokers Wrath MC and he is the epitome of hotness, he is rough, demanding, tough, sexy as hell and he loves Santana with a passion that people write home about. Santana is an ex-junkie who Maddox rescued literally off the streets. Santana is still an innocent woman despite what she went though as a child and teenager, she knows that she has some type of feeling for Maddox, but she does not know what the feeling it, or why she feels this for the man who saved her life. With both of them not willing to admit their feelings for each other, it is just a storm brewing and waiting to erupt.
Santana just wants a normal life, she has endured so much, abuse, drug addiction , the loss of her sister and her parents. The MC really saved her life and they welcomed her to their family, sure they were not a traditional family, but the guys and their old ladies became her family. While she always knew there was some type of connection with Maddox, Santana has completely avoided any attraction she has for him, until an incident happened during "Precarious" the first book in the series, and she is forced to face the feeling she has for Santana. Maddox has made it fairly obvious to the other men in the MC the feelings he has for Santana, even if he has never acted on the feelings he has always been attracted to her beauty, her spirit and her sassy personality. But will they ever be able to come to terms with their attaction for each other, or will external forces cause them to never get the chance to take a risk on each other.
I loved Santana, she had such a strong personality, however at times I found her 'innocent' behaviour a bit frustrating, she seemed to act like a teenager at times and would run off when she did not get her own way, instead of facing her problems. She did however have a very loving nature, she adored Maddox for saving her and when she realises her true feelings for him she loves him with everything she has. Maddox is a big bad guy, he is brash and says and does what he wants, as the MC he is used to people doing what he says, and Santana challenges him every step of the way. But I think this is why he loves her so much, she is such a strong woman and she does not take his crap.
I really enjoyed this book, it was just as fun and hot at the first book in the series, and I will eagerly await the next one in the series.......I am thinking it will be about the MC's brother!!!!!
Well the first thing is that somehow I got out of book order and read Book 3 (Anguish) before Book 2 (Melancholy). Here is the order that they should have been read in. Precarious (Jokers' Wrath MC, #1), Melancholy (Jokers' Wrath MC, #2), Anguish (Jokers' Wrath MC, #3), It would have been better to have been read in order but, it didn't hurt to badly that I did. Let me just say I loved Melancholy and this whole series. This story is about Maddox & Santana (Tana). It takes them 5 years to finally get together but, wow when they finally do it is hot! If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would.
Bella Jewel does know how to bring out emotions and you can almost feel when things are going down (bad things). There is also a continuation of seeing more of Krypt and Ash from book 1 (Precarious) and the start of Miakoda (Mack) story book 3 (Anguish)! I Love these guys! I can't wait to read more and I hope there will be a book 4. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I do.
I loved this book Maddox was all man and Santana was awesome she had a very rough childhood after losing her parents in a tragic accident it was just her sister and her until they to were ripped apart by lies and broken promises I never wanted to shake 2 MC as much as these 2 so perfect for each other but couldn't see it so many emotions in this book lots of action and HAWT scenes beautiful HEA next book Mack I was hoping he would get with Pippa but alas it's not to be I'll still be reading the next book I LOVE THIS 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.
I was gifted a copy of this book for a honest review
I lovedBook 1 but OMG this one just blew me away. Maddox and Santana's story was gritty,dirty,steamy full of secrets,lies and deceptions. From the first page i was drawn into the characters and the story,which flowed effortless and I just kept turning the pages until it said The End. It had some unexpected twists and turns and for me at times quite emotional. And the ending WOW I didn't expect that. Roll on October for Mack's story A 5* must read. Bella, that was one hell of a rollercoaster ride but one that was well worth it.
