Making the Cut (Selected Sinners MC #1)
Genre: M/F, MC Romance
*WARNING* Depicts an Outlaw Motorcycle Club, criminal activity, graphic sex, and violence, but has HEA, no cheating, and NO sex outside the relationship.
Avery, a Criminal Justice major in college, yearns for a bad-boy. An alpha male. An unattainable guilty pleasure. The unicorn of men.
When the Selected Sinners Motorcycle Club rides into Avery’s bar one night, her heart stops, and her mind goes to work. She’s immediately attracted to the baddest man in the group, Axton. She wants him at any cost.
Axton isn’t only a bad boy, he’s the President of The Selected Sinners Motorcycle Club, a 1%er Outlaw Motorcycle Club. At the onset of a gun deal with a notorious Mexican prison gang, there is no place in Axton’s life or mind for a college girl with a smart mouth.
Avery quickly becomes willing to sacrifice whatever she must for a shot at Axton.
Axton is willing to sacrifice nothing, and has no interest in her advances. His mind and devotion are on his club brothers and finishing the gun deal with the MS-13, which will allow one of his brothers in prison to make it out alive.
But Axton finds in doing the deal, he needs Avery and her Criminal Justice education to complete it.
If Avery makes it out alive, it will be a small miracle.
If Axton makes it out without falling for her, it would be an even bigger miracle.
This book is a stand-alone love story. It does have tremendous violence, explicit language, sexual situations, and the intricacies of being in an Outlaw Motorcycle Club depicted. All sexual partners in this book are over the age of 18.
*NOTE TO READERS*
Stand alone love story. HEA. No cliff hanger.
My Review: 3.5/5 Stars
This was an interesting story. I didn’t get Avery sometimes. When the story began she didn’t like herself, but after meeting Slice, she’s this new woman. I would have liked the transformation explained a little to me.
I will hand it to her though what she wanted she went after it, even if her roommate and friend was being a cock block in my book. That was another thing, one minute Avery wanted to have her body, then the next she’d calling her fat. I was a little confused with that.
Don’t get me wrong it was a good read, I was interested from the first few sentences, it kept me going because I wanted to know what happened next. The one thing I was really disappointed was the sex was all the way at the end. Yeah, sue me.
I would read another book from this author.
Scott Hildreth is a very analytical sort who bases his beliefs on statistics he compiles in his head. Often going as long as a month without so much as a single sip of water, he drinks coffee as if it were the lifeblood of his writing.
Scott fears flying, clowns, and amusement park rides. Tall and lean with a cleanly shaven head and covered in tattoos, he doesn’t blend in well. After reading his writings, this makes perfect sense. His vibrant characters, backstories, and plots, although always relatable, generally stand out as much as he does.
Willing to discuss matters at length most people shy away from, Scott’s writing has revolved around such subjects as domestic abuse, suicide, alcoholism, drug abuse, cancer, divorce, homosexuality, religion, and lack thereof.
Born in San Diego, California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas his home. He is a proud father, and lives devoted to the love of his life, Jessica. When he isn’t writing, he may be found on his motorcycle or in a local coffee house.
Scott’s novels include Broken People, Undefeated, Unstoppable, Unleashed, Unbroken, Baby Girl – Ruined, Baby Girl – Owned, Baby Girl – Loved, To the Depths of Hell, The Alpha-Bet, Finding Parker, Karter, and Confessions of a Smut Author.
