The best motorcycle club romance books

Who am I?

Maybe it was because I fell in love with Sons of Anarchy and needed more when the series ended. Maybe it was because I’ve always loved alpha holes. Either way, motorcycle club romances just fit in my reader wheelhouse. There's something about the ultimate bad boys who will burn the world down for that one woman. I think what appeals to me most is that these couples, their relationships, are never perfect. The men don’t magically become the perfect boyfriends. They still screw up, but they love in their own gritty, possessive, dirty way with their whole hearts. When I devoured every audiobook I could find, I decided to try my hand at writing one. 

I wrote...

Jacob: Odin’s Fury Motorcycle Club

By Victoria Jayne,

Book cover of Jacob: Odin’s Fury Motorcycle Club

What is my book about?

Looking to ride off into the sunset with the love of your life? When the road gets bumpy, will Jacob and Sparrow hang on tight or find their own paths? 

Jacob is a slow burn, second chance romance with a redefined cinnamon roll. Jacob and Sparrow met in their youth but distance, time, and club life kept them apart. They have a second chance. Will their loyalties get in the way of taking it?

By Madeline Sheehan,

Book cover of Undeniable

Why this book?

Undeniable is the raw and dirty story of Eva and Deuce. As the children of leaders of outlaw motorcycle clubs, they have expectations placed on them. These pressures both drive them apart and together at the same time. It’s not a pretty tale. It’s complicated. Everything is in their way, but they persevere. They go through hell to be together. It’s not the typical love story, but it’s theirs.

Reaper's Fall

By Joanna Wylde,

Book cover of Reaper's Fall

Why this book?

Painter screwed up. He made the wrong choice and he knew it. Melanie swore off bikers to protect her daughter. It didn’t matter that they still loved each other. They couldn’t be together. Until Melanie makes the wrong choice and violates their rules.

This second chance romance had hold of my emotions from page one. I went on a roller coaster with Painter and Melanie.

Sinner's Creed

By Kim Jones,

Book cover of Sinner's Creed

Why this book?

I have never ugly cried from a book as hard as I did for Sinner’s Creed. Deep down, I knew what would happen. I knew [sorta] how it would end, but held out hope for a different outcome. Dirk and Saylor’s love is pure despite the darkness around them. Dirk is devoted to Saylor and she shares that same level of commitment. This book tore me apart in the most perfect way.

It Ain't Me, Babe

By Tillie Cole,

Book cover of It Ain't Me, Babe

Why this book?

Dark doesn’t even begin to cover this book. Tillie Cole took me into the abyss with this series. Every one of the triggers you could possibly have are in this book. Yet, the darkness is contrasted by the purity of the love between Styx and Mae. Added bonus that Styx has a form of mutism. The representation was refreshing in this book. 

Trigger: Devil's Reach Book One

By J.L. Drake,

Book cover of Trigger: Devil's Reach Book One

Why this book?

Okay, in doing this I have noticed a trend in what I like. How enlightening. Anyway. Trigger has the perfect combination of darkness and love conquers all. The raw story between Trigger and Tess—two broken people who found exactly what they needed in one another. Sexy, gritty, and captivating, this book has everything I wanted in a motorcycle club romance.
