Sex. Who really knows sex? I mean, we've all had sex, great sex even but when you get down to the details, how many of us actually see sex for the raw, primal act that it is?

I thought I knew sex. I've had sex. Heck, I've felt lust. Once, I've even felt love. I thought I knew exactly what sex was.

Until I met Cade.

He's the meaning of sex.

He's a biker.

He's dangerous.
He's powerful. 

He's dominant.

He wants me.

My world is about to change, for the better? I don't know. But here's my story, I hope you're ready for it because it's not the beautiful, heart wrenching story most people have to tell. It's passionate, forbidden, morally incorrect and downright, fucking beautiful.

Buy HELL'S KNIGHTS (Paperback)

There are a number of reasons why I really enjoyed Hell's Knights by Bella Jewel. First off, I finished this book in one sitting - so that would already tell you that I was having a good time. Second (and I hate making comparisons, but in this case I think it's important to point out)... second would be that for whatever reason, I can't help but think that this book reminded me so much of a Kristen Ashley novel.

There were a lot of differences, but essentially what makes a KA novel, shone through in the writing, the plot, the twists, the brutality that KA uses which is simply that she never holds back at all... this came through in a similar manner. In fact, if you were to ask me as from today, to recommend a book to you that is similar to KA, it would be this one for sure.

Just as KA likes to do, Bella Jewel also makes use of fierce, sassy female characters. Who doesn't love those? I know I do. Most of the way through the book I was chanting 'you go girl'... it was so refreshing for a change.

Then, just as we ALWAYS fall in love with the KA bad-ass, hot alpha males... again, we have a similar trait in our male characters of Hell's Knights.

More specifically, in this book (& Series), they are biker boys... with... wait for it... tattoos and if that doesn't get your blood boiling... our particular hero in this novel, Cade, also has... piercings! #swoon! And the kind of piercing you see and the ones you don't get to see... :)

I enjoyed this book so much. Like I mentioned above, the writing was great. The dialogues to the point, the plot moved along at a really good pace... I never felt lost, confused or dizzy - it all just went along perfectly. As it should.

But hold on a minute before you go and click, click and buy this book. You need to be aware that there are more than a few portions of this book that may be considered 'not for sensitive viewers'. But if you've read any of my reviews, you'll know that it's something that doesn't faze me to much. I might get wide-eyed and gawk at some extreme situations, but as a whole, it's not something I get flustered over.

You should know that the day I do tell you that a book was way to over the top, you need to understand that if I say that... then you know it's bad. But Hell's Knights is not bad at all. Nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to intense erotic type romances. But even as I say that, the 'erotica' in this book is not much more that simple exploration. I've read worse or more sexually daring books than this one - however, with the erotica, darkness and sensitive matter brought forward in Hell's Knights, it makes for a very, very gripping and dare I say... dripping read. LOL.

The book starts off with our leading lady Addison. She's seeking out her father. Her mothers just died. Her mothers pimp is looking for her. She has no (or very little) money and the past she's lived is so far from good our naive minds couldn't begin to imagine the stuff up.

So off she goes, finds her dad. Who, BTW, is the president of a Motorcycle Club. Hell's Knights to be exact. Upon meeting her father for the first time according to her... she also lays eyes on Cade - Our hottie biker with the tattoo's and the visible & not so visible piercings. #swoon!!!!

The pace in which the initial 'hookup' between Addison and Cade takes place is perfectly timed. I love it when the story takes off almost immediately from the start. It means that the book contains sufficient romance. So I love that!

Although Cade is a real bad-ass. He's bad, hot, sexy and again bad... He's also unexpectedly sweet. With possessiveness and demanding added in there, he makes for the perfect Alpha / Biker combo. You heard me... Cade is the epitome of that boy your mother always warned you about. But God knows I fell in love. And I did this hard!

This was my first read by Author Bella Jewel, but certainly not my last. I enjoyed this book so much that I am excited to start the second book in The MC Sinners series.

The only problem I did pick up - the reason this book is not a full 5 star read - is the epilogue. That was the only part where I felt it was so rushed. Now this could either be a good sign - because I did want more... but it could also be a bad, because really, since the entire book was paced out to perfection - Everything happening just as it should so you wouldn't get bored... I felt as if the last bit was kind of a fail. The epilogue didn't excite me much. It was much to short. Not enough focus on the final bit that was MAJOR (let me tell you) and since the follow up to this book is about a new character and not Cade & Addison, that's kind of a problem for me. I didn't feel as if their story was over yet. I didn't have my closure. And I'm selfish enough to feel as if I'm owed it lol. No I'm kidding, but only a little. I do want more. I do want to know what happened after the epilogue.

But it wont stop me from moving forward with this series. I will be reading more of Bella Jewel and I will be doing it sooner rather than later.
