As you know throw in a Hot Biker, Stubborn Independent Woman, Up against the Wall Sex, Humour and Loyal Friendship and you have me hook, line & sinker. This is a story of finding justice from a rough life and seriously Arianne has endured it all.
Rough Justice gives you that plus so much more, to say I cannot wait until book 2 for Cade and Dawn’s story is a serious understatement, this series is going to be winner and I can tell as I have read my fair share of biker books!
This story centres around Jagger and Arianne, I mean Jagger or Jag as he is know is the President of Sinner’s Tribe and is just sex on a stick. He commands the room and Arianne reads him to perfection and they compliment each other.
Arianne just happens to be the daughter of the President of the rival MC club and is planning on running away from her psychotic father and club. He is so freakin scary, every time he came into the story I literally shook to my core! Arianne also loves motorcycles and happens to be a mechanic – so is independent – I loved her character to bits.
Arianne has a great core group of friends outside of the club who are helping her become a free spirit and were one of my favourite components of this story and Dawn is her girl friend, co-worker and flat mate.
The sexual chemistry between Arianne and Jagger was off the charts and freakin wet your panties stuff and very well written. The suspense and supporting story of the rival MC gangs, drug and gun trade adds some extra drama and entwines the ending into a great conclusion.
The other fantastic part of this book is the supporting characters within the clubs, there were quite a few but it did not feel overwhelming or too much like some other books so well done to the author for meeting that balance. I can remember them, what positions they held and their parts in the final story of finding justice in life.
I am sure Jagger and Arianne will play a role in book 2 Beyond the Cut and Book 3 Sinner’s Steel – I have already added these to my Goodreads list as do not want to miss these bad boys when they get released.
ROUGH JUSTICE is the first installment in Sarah Castille’s new, contemporary, adult Sinners Tribe Motorcycle Club erotic romance series focusing on the members of the Sinners Tribe MC. This is club president Jagger Knight and Arianne Hunter’s storyline- a story of forbidden love, betrayal and revenge.
Told from third person point of view ROUGH JUSTICE focuses on an attack against the Sinners Tribe MC by a rival club that resulted in one member dead, their club house destroyed and Arianne Hunter –a prisoner of the Sinners Tribe MC. Left behind at the scene of the crime, Arianne finds herself not so much a prisoner but owned by the club president. Believing Arianne was a party to the death and destruction, the Sinners Tribe members want to make an example out of her but Jagger sees something different in Arianne-he sees a possible future, if only a temporary one.
The attraction between Arianne and Jagger is immediate but one of forbidden love. As a member of the rival MC, Arianne is off limits but it is her true identity that will force Jagger to think long and hard about what it is he wants and what he now has to do. Arianne refuses to return to her old club but her reasons are more complicated and darker than Jagger could have known.
Jagger is a powerful, alpha male; a dominant club president whose word is law and he is the final authority. Nothing is done without his permission but saying that he is a man with a heart-buried deep within a scarred chest-but a heart that believes all women should be protected. Jagger has a softer side, one that does not go unnoticed by his fellow club brethren when he begins to lose focus on what is important to the club. Loyalties and leadership will be questioned. When one of his fellow club brothers targets Arianne for justice, Jagger must step up and enforce the MC laws.
Arianne is a strong willed woman determined to leave town and start a new life away from the destructive nature of the biker lifestyle. She has faced death, experienced assault and brutal beatings but it is her love for her brother that has forced Arianne to make the decision to run. Saying that, our heroine, is torn between wanting to leave and remaining a part of Jagger’s life. In this, there is a continuous push and pull throughout the storyline; Arianne runs hot and cold. Our heroine believes herself to be capable of self preservation and survival but at times it will take an emotional and angry Jagger to save her from herself and others.
The supporting and secondary characters are numerous including many members of the Sinners Tribe MC. We are introduced to Jagger’s fellow bikers including Cade, Zane, Axle and Wheels as well as Banksy, the local bar owner whose background is secretive and dark. Arianne’s family plays a dangerous role in her need to run but none more so than a father who views his daughter as less than worthy.
ROUGH JUSTICE is a graphically violent storyline about betrayal, revenge and justice but not as graphic as some of the current MC series on the market. The language is strong but, again, not as explicit as other stories in the same genre. Don’t get me wrong, this is definitely an adult storyline, with adult and erotic situations, graphic language and depictions of violence, with lots of sex between our H/h but the brutality is not always ‘in your face’; some of the situations take place behind the scenes or as part of a memory and backstory; and the language is tempered in comparison. There are some issues of repetition and redundancy but overall your eyes should not bleed after reading the story.
Sarah Castille does a wonderful job with the first storyline in her new Sinners Tribe MC series. With the introduction of many of Jagger’s fellow club brothers, we get a little background into their history, their heartbreak and their connections to one another. If you are new to the MC genre, the Sinners Tribe MC series by Sarah Castille is a must read; get your feet wet with ROUGH JUSTICE and club president Jagger Knight.
