From bestselling author Sarah Castille comes a scorching new series featuring red-hot, hard-riding bikers and the women who can’t help but love them…


Raised in a motorcycle gang, tough, beautiful Arianne Hunter has always dreamed of a normal life. But no sooner does she escape her father’s domineering grasp than she wakes up to find herself in a rival gang’s clubhouse—at the mercy of the dangerously sexy Jagger Knight.


The alpha leader of the notorious Sinner’s Tribe, Jagger Knight is all muscle, all biker, and all man. But somewhere inside this hard tattooed outlaw, Arianne senses a kindred spirit—and she can’t ignore their tempestuous attraction. Can she beat him at his own game in a revved-up blaze of glory? Or will their passion spark a war that’s the end of the road for them both?

Releases 3rd Feb by St Martin's Press - ISBN: 9781250056603

I received a copy from the publisher (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: The best way to describe Rough Justice? Think star-crossed romance for adults with bikers and a Motorcycle Club, and you're nearly there. The plot is far more complicated than this but in essence it's a forbidden biker romance story.

Jagger is the president of the Sinner's Tribe MC and Arianne/Vexy is the daughter of their main rivals. They shouldn't want each and they definitely shouldn't be together but their sizzling chemistry draws them together and all hell breaks loose.

I loved Arianne's sassy biker chick side and appreciated how she managed to stand up to the bikers and wasn't scared by them. Even with the many biker books I've read I'm not sure I'll ever be able to fully get my head around the idea of 'propery' and women knowing their place, but I appreciate this different culture and I definitely like the leather cuts! This being said it was nice to see a female character in a MC book who was already part of the culture and respected the rules. She may not always agree with all the macho attitudes but she's respectful and never gives in to whinging like many other women in this genre often do.

I couldn't decide whether I really liked Jagger or wanted to hit him. He goes from bad ass and scary, to hot and demanding, to sweet and protective - it's very conflicting but I really approved of his protectiveness in terms of Arianne. I did find myself wondering if people actually speak like the characters do in the book and whether guys really think like Jagger (now I've got Moves Like Jagger in my head).

The star-crossed element made the plot more interesting than your average contemporary romance. Arianne's brother is called Jeff which did keep reminding me of Marie's brother (also called) Jeff in Joanna Wylde's Reaper's Property - but the story is very different.

I really liked Cade and am looking forward to him getting his own book. Will he be able to win you-know-who around?

4 hot Stars in my Sky!
