A Review by Wendy

3.5 Deeply Tortured, Dark and Gritty, MC Stars

Bella Jewel has dived deep into a darker harsher world of MC’s. In this new series, Angel’s in Leather, her characters are not easy, typical or one dimensional.  She gives us people who have been tested by the horrors of past experiences… who are tied together by an invisible thread causing questions to remain unanswered and locked away.

None of this story is pretty. All of the characters have been damaged or broken; have been taught evil or been born to it. The central theme, though, is belief, perseverance, and the power of love.
We first meet Meadow at one of her lowest points in her young teenage life; daughter to the MC President, dealing with no mother from a very young age, she has decided she is just done….

Done with wanting to have an easier life… done with always feeling alone… done with missing Axel, the one person who always looked out for her….she has decided to end the pain by jumping off the bridge… and as she is on the wrong side of the railings, Axel shows up and asks her what she is doing…. She tells him there is nothing and slips off into the water below knowing she cannot swim and realizing to late…maybe she wasn’t ready to die after all.

Axel jumps in and saves her … telling her there is always something left inside to pull you through…. That you just have to fight to see it.

Because he knows what he is talking about having lived through something worse than hell…something so vile from the hands of Beast, another MC President, one who has no redeeming qualities…Axel escaped but emerged as a totally different damaged person.

We share the scene of Meadow with her father… he has been shot by the one person Meadow has always trusted, Axel. She knows her father and Axel had a falling out but she has no understanding of what just happened. Axel shot her father and as he is slowly dying, he hands her a USB drive making her swear she will get it to a cop named Raide… it is his dying wish and she promises she will. She escapes the scene and only knows she is alone again.

This story will grab you and take you places which may shock you. These people are driven and their goal to get that USB drive promotes ruthless behavior… the chase for Meadow spans over year… running and learning how to make it… outsmarting Axel and the Club… researching to find the Raide her father begged to receive that drive… all of these things has strengthen Meadow to the woman she has become.

When the final capture by Axel takes place… this tale moves into territory of overwhelming need and confusing wants. It explores these things without the pretty…it throws them in your face for you to see… all types of love can be had… but some is harsh in its want.

Angels in Leather is not your watered down biker/mc story. It presents the ugly along with its love story. I understood what the author was doing and respect her intent. I did feel, though, there was very little lightness or humor … which caused it to be a heavier read for me. I do think a disclaimer might be of merit as some scenes could be possible triggers for some readers.  

For those who like the base instincts of human nature, who want to see characters somehow come together, overcoming incredible obstacles- mental and physical…and somehow coming out whole…. Then this is your book.

Arc provided in exchange for honest review


“Fight me, don’t you stop,” Axel breathes into my ear. “I won’t hurt you, Cricket,” he murmurs, running his finger down the side of my face. “But I need you to fight.”
So, that’s what I do.
I start by squirming, trying to twist my body around. He presses his body against mine, and reaches up, tangling his fingers into the fence. He thrusts his hips, ramming both out bodies harder into the wire. I groan, and throw my head back, hitting him in the face. He snarls, and takes my hands, quickly uncuffing me before pulling them harshly behind my back and jerking my body back into his.
I hear the cuffs drop onto the ground.
I guess he’s letting me play this fairly.
“Stop that,” he rasps into my ear. “I’ll make it hurt if you do that again.”
“Maybe I want it to hurt,” I hiss, fisting my hands together and shoving them backwards into his stomach.
He stumbles off me with a grunt, and I spin around, ducking to the left and attempting to run. I don’t get two steps before Axel lashes out, taking my ankle and pulling me so hard I go down into the dirt. My face just misses being smashed into it by mere centimeters. Axel flattens his body over mine, and takes my head in his hands, jerking my head back by my hair and breathing down on me. “You’re being a bad girl,” he husks, running a finger down the side of my face.
“You’re not letting me play fair,” I whisper. “I was cuffed before, it wasn’t a fair chase.”
I feel his weight lift off me, and he jerks me up, pulling me into a standing position.
“Run, then. I’ll give you five seconds, and if I catch you again, Meadow, I’m going to f**k you,” he murmurs, then his eyes grow lusty. “Hard.”
I turn without answering, and I run into the trees at the back of the lot. I hear Axel counting loudly, and my body shivers. I am sweating now, and my breathing is hard and ragged, but the chase is so worth that. I hear Axel take off after me, and I squeal with delight as I weave through the trees. It’s dark, but I can see enough because of the lights surrounding the club house.
“The minute I get hold of you,” Axel yells. “I’m goin’ to rip your panties down and put my d**k so deep inside you, you’re goin’ to scream.”
I shiver, and swallow. I make my way to the fence line again, and I press myself against it for a second, letting my eyes scan the trees.
“Then I’m goin’ to kiss you so hard your lips will bleed.”
Oh my.
I take off, using the fence line as a guide to get back to the other end of the lot. I can hear Axel to my left, and I know he’s gaining on me, but if I run, it’ll make a lot of noise and he’ll figure out where I am.
“Come out come out wherever you are,” he sings. “You know I’ll make you come so much your legs will give way.”
I feel a smile on my face as I keep moving along the fence, keeping my body plastered against it. I can feel my own arousal dampening my panties, and now I’m eager for him to get his hands on me. I want to know what he’s got to give.
“You can run, Cricket, but you can’t hide.”
