Spark in the Ashes

 (Steel Souls MC #1)

by Nikki Groom 




Sadie Foster is consumed with revenge. The quiet beauty she portrays on the outside disguises the rage bubbling within her. Because on the inside, her desire for retribution dominates her every waking thought, until him…

Ramsey Dalton is an outlaw. A criminal that will do whatever it takes to get what he wants and to keep his MC brothers safe. He didn’t know there could be more to his life than sex, drugs, and death, until her…

Their meeting is pure chance. Their connection undeniable. But what neither of them knows, is that their relationship threatens to uncover far more than they could have imagined.

Secrets and lies are best left buried, but sometimes they’re too real to stay dead.


My Rating:



Favorite Quotes:


The camaraderie and tight-knit feel of the Steel Souls brothers and their wives is intense. It’s unapologetic, violent at times, and pretty damn explosive, but it feels like a raucous version of The Waltons… Bound by soul not blood, and in some respects, it’s a more honest connection.


There’s nothing to say what’s happened here, or who did this, but it’s hanging in the air, like a bad smell that no one wants to admit to.



My Review:


Spark In The Ashes was a tense read full of conflict, irritating and uncouth characters, violence, and carnage.   This was not a sweet alpha teddy bear MC, no, no, no! This group of misfits consisted of dangerous outlaws who like to toy and torture their victims before they finally kill. So I found it to be extremely moronic of the feisty bratty female character to continuously push their limits, pick fights, stamp her little foot, toss insults and demands as freely as her luscious head of hair, and generally kept up an extremely dangerous game of mean girl for no particular reason. Yet I remained intrigued and despite frequently cringing at the brutality, I could not seem to put my kindle down until the worst thing of all happened. After a shattering revelation, the book ended in a vile cliffhanger, GRRR! Those demonic contrivances should be illegal.

    I do not believe that I have ever read the first romance novel in my life, but the way you describe the way that these females interact with their men in the gang is actually pretty spot on. These hard-as-nail men tend to put up with a lot for and with their women. They bring their children into the world, so they have a lot of respect for them. This part of what you described actually shocked me because it started to get me to want to read this book!
