5 Deacon is my biker StarsI haven’t read a Katie Ashley book in forever. I love Katie Ashley and I love MC books, so it’s like the best of both worlds. I am happy to say that Vicious Cycle met and exceeded my expectations.I have found a new series to love.Vicious Cycle is a standalone in the Vicious Cycle series. Each book will be catering towards a character in the Raider’s MC club (well at least the first two books are).Vicious Cycle starts out with a BAM! I was hooked from page one and [...]
This book started pretty good and I was really happy because the biker bitch in me needed a good feast. But all went to hell almost half through the book. All was good in biker world until the big bad biker had to utter 3 little words that ruined everythingDon't get me wrongI'm not AntiLove and I don't believe bikers are too cool to say those words but they where so inappropriate at that moment and they sounded so unbelievable that it ruined it for me.And from then on things just got worseI don' [...]
★★ 2 Stars ★★I will keep this short. This started off good, but unfortunately it went a bit downhill when the badass biker became too soft and the goody two shoes teacher became a badass.It just didn't work for me. Also, I didn't think Deacon was a particularly good father, and I think this part of the storyline should have been bigger. He didn't really ever seem to fall in love with his daughter and that was a huge let down for me.This is the first in a series of standalone novels, told [...]
2.5 meh StarsDeacon gets the shock of his life when he's told that he has a daughter. Not knowing what to do or how to raise a little girl who has been through so much pain already, he distances himself from Willow and is protective of her from a distance, keeping her close to the club to keep her safe. When Willow doesn't show up at school for a week Alex, her teacher, gets worried and decides to check on her. She never expected to find a man like Deacon, though. Alex is instantly brought into [...]
Unfortunately Vicious Cycle was not for me. The only way I can think to explain it is like watching a little girl playing dress up in her mother's clothes and high heels. All the bits are there but things just don't fit quite right. This one was trying to be a motorcycle club romance but it just couldn't quite figure out how to get there and ended up being a pretty flat rendition of one. The words might have been right, the set up right but it lacked the grit, depth and believable flavors of an [...]
3.5 starsI just can't make up my mind about this book. Some parts I liked, others confused me and some I just didn't like. For some reason I can't work out even though I enjoyed the writing I couldn't connect to any of the characters. Even little Willow! Maybe I'm heartless? There's strong violence from the beginning and throughout the book. If you find that disturbing don't pick this up. I generally don't mind violence when it's justified within the plot of the book but this felt like too much [...]
A Biker Book from Katie Ashley!!! I am so excited!!!with a HAWT guy on cover!
I felt like Vicious Cycle was trying too hard to be a gritty, tough, shocking, biker story. Sadly, it didn't work for me. In the end I only felt like I read a story about a self-serving, craptastitc father, A-hole named Deacon.As far as his love interest, Alexandra, goes I felt like she never stayed true to her character. She changes as the story goes and I did NOT like how she goes about that 180 change. I really had a hard time with her secret as well. It was awful what she did. Willow- she's [...]
3.5 starsI'm going to be real honest here I was disappointed! Why? I felt as though I read the story before at least several times.When I originally read the blurb, I pre-ordered so dang on fast and then yesterday I had some extra time thinking I will devour it, well not.What I thought I was going to get was a hot biker daddy finding about his 5 year old baby girl that will turn him into mush What I got?A cold hearted asshole who only cared about himself and a piece of tale!When Deacon (David) f [...]
HOW AM I GOING TO WAIT? I WANT THIS NOW!! And that cover? Delicious!
Reread this so that #2 would come easy. I remember really liking this after I read it. I must have been in a cloud nine moment haha because Alex annoyed the crap out of me this time around. Hang on! I still enjoyed the book, really liked Deacon and the grittiness of the story but Alex did pull crazy temper tantrums. Geez Louise someone get her a lollipop.Other than Akex the Brat I was good with it all. So I'm dropping a star and moving on to book 2. That ending has me already wanting to cuddle u [...]
*I gave this audiobook a B+ for both the story and narration at AudioGals*Narrated by Vanessa Edwin and Jay Crow (with Jameson Adams in Epilogue)While Katie Ashley is pretty well known in the contemporary romance world, Vicious Cycle is Ms. Ashley’s first foray into MC Romance. Being a big MC Romance fan, I decided to give the first book in the Vicious Cycle series a chance, and I have to say that overall I was quite pleased with the result. Although not as gritty or overly erotic or dark as t [...]
In the first in a brand new series by Katie Ashley, VICIOUS CYCLE does not play around with its jaunt into the dangerous motorcycle world. Following Deacon Malloy, the sergeant at arms of the Hell’s Raiders motorcycle club, readers are thrust into the gritty, violent world of a brotherhood based on sin. After reading several other books of Ashley’s, I was interested to see her take on the motorcycle craze that has been sweeping over the reading community. However I found that although the wr [...]
I love Katie's writing and this sounds different from her usual books, so I go to amazon just before I buy it, I happened to see it's price-11.99$!!!! and that's only for Kindle edition???!!!Nope! not gonna happen.I'll wait for the price to drop, Meanwhile I one-clicked plenty other books;) #notsorry :p
buzzfeed/literatiauthoVicious Cycle has been one of my most highly anticipated books this year. I have been dying to get my hands on it since the first whisper that Katie Ashley would be writing an MC series. And she does not disappoint! Whether she is writing wealthy businessmen, hot rockers, and now bikers, Ms.Ashley knows how to make the reader fall for her sexy hero and root for the couple to get their happy ever after.The world of MC Romance is gritty, raw and dark. Katie Ashley manages to [...]
So lately I have been starting books and not getting into them if I’m under the 10% then they do not count as a DNF. This book although it was slightly clichéd got me out of my book funk. I couldn’t stop reading and I actually sneaked in reading some pages or maybe chapters at work. Yes, I know very naughty.Please note that if you are offended by violence, attempted rape this is not the book for you.So you have a biker + a daughter he knew he never had + a school teacher and an instant hit [...]
4.5 stars!Good biker story but I had some issues.Some of the things Alexandra did was stupid and she was a bit crazy.I want to read the next book in this series.Rev's story.

*4.5 stars*Excited for more of this series! Really liked this one!

Kitty and Leigh's reviews KITTY'S Review - 5 starsBang right in the beginning, Katie Ashley starts this book off with hardcore MC punishment and she doesn't stop throughout the whole story. She draws you in from the first chapter, and just like the Hell's Raiders, holds you hostage until the job is done.Deacon just grabs you a hard man who had a hard life that just wants a hard fuck when he's in the mood for one. No hearts and flowers for him. He tried his hand at his version of hearts and flo [...]
An explosive beginning sets the tone for this fast-paced, emotion-packed whirlwind of a story.Willow Malloy is a child but what she’s experienced in her young life is appalling. She grabbed me from the first sentence and didn’t let go throughout this riveting page turner. Deacon hadn’t known he was father to Willow and his life in the MC hadn’t prepared him for that role in the slightest. Alexandra Evans, as a teacher, on the other hand is a perfect role model for children so having Will [...]
⭐️⭐️e mezzoPer la serie: parto in quinta ed arrivo in retromarcia.Questo libro da proprio quest'idea, quando inizi a leggere vai veloce come un treno e macini capitoli su capitoli tant'é la curiosità di sapere, poi tutto di colpo ha una battuta d'arresto e ti trovi a sollevare mille volte gli occhi per tutte le boiate che leggi.Per primo la traduzione dei nomi che ha reso la lettura un po' imbarazzante in certe occasioni. Diacono, vescovo, reverendo e ci mancava solo chierichetto e poi [...]

i found this story to be a cheese fest sorry to say. it's a 'been there, read that' type of book. not much chemistry between leads and overall, i really couldn't connect with them at all. there was just no emotional depth to this story, it never felt genuine. i think i have read too many good mc books so when you pick up one like this, it just disappoints. 2 stars because i did finish it, skimmed a bunch towards the end but did finish. shame as this book has been on my watch list for SO long and [...]
This was my first read by Katie Ashley and I really enjoyed her writing and loved this story. I like the MC books but I am limited with the ones I can read because I don't like sharing, or adultery, etc. It was nice to find another MC writer that writes what I like.I do feel that the story went really fast. The "I love you" from Deacon seemed to come out of nowhere, well, not really nowhere but it really wasn't expected at that moment.Overall a good story. I'm very much looking forward to the ne [...]
Like a mighty oak, it was fun watching Deacon's fall. Katie Ashley had me busting up in stitches with the characters playful banter. I mean come on picture big burly bad ass bikers messing around with pink glittery tiaras, and coloring barbie ballerina's. Even now I'm laughing at the thought but despite the playfulness you could feel the brotherly camaraderie within the MC and the elements of danger! Willow girl you broke my heart but I'm glad you got your happy ending. Five star read!
