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?

4.5 "Blood Price" Stars! Lovers of MC Romances will not want to miss ROUGH JUSTICE. On the lighter side for this sub-genre that sometimes can be extremely dark, Sarah Castille does an amazing job of introducing the MC world to her readers by painting a picture of the two potential extremes, while at the same towing the line as it relates to the descriptive nature of the potentially sensitive material, so as to keep this read safely within the contemporary romance genre. Adding to the overall effect of this dramatic read which portrays the action-filled, suspense-filled, MC outlaw life are some extremely passionate and erotic scenes that will leave you fanning yourself! What a great start to what promises to be another addicting MC romance series!

The heroine, Arianne, was born into the darker, grittier side of the MC life. Although she is the daughter of the Black Jack's President Viper, she has been spared very little when it comes to the MC way growing up. Her father routinely beat her when she met with his disapproval and is anything but a protective man. As a result, it has been her dream to escape the town she lives in, which is aptly named Conundrum. The only thing holding her back is her drug-addicted brother, whom she loves completely, notwithstanding his faults. She has made it her mission to make sure that he too escapes the brutal ways of her father, when she leaves the MC life.

Her life takes an unexpected turn, however, when she finds herself in the hands of a rival MC, the Sinner's Tribe MC. The questionable circumstances surrounding her reasons for being found at the Sinner's Tribe clubhouse, and her reluctance to identify the culprits who set fire to it and stole the Sinner's Tribe's shipment of guns, lead to her captivity.

It is during this captivity that Arianne first meets Jagger Knight, the Sinner's Tribe's MC President. While he undoubtedly exemplifies many of the characteristics that she associates with her father and the MC life in general, she quickly recognizes something different in him.

Jagger's attraction to Arianne meanwhile is equally strong. Defying all logic, as she is supposed to be the enemy, he can't help his attraction to her fierce loyalty, unique bravery and impressive skills that could make even the best, most talented, MC bikers envious.

It doesn't take long before Jagger makes an impulsive decision to bring Arianne under his protection. But this decision leads to all kinds of turmoil, on both MC Club fronts, never mind that Arianne remains equally determined to find a way for her and her brother to escape the gritty and violent ways of the MC life once and for all. Can there possibly be a HEA in store for this couple with so many factors conspiring against them?

I really enjoyed the statement this story makes, which is that not all men cut from the same cloth are actually alike. In that regard, Jagger is everything I've come to love in a great MC alpha hero, while Viper exemplifies everything that society associates with a bad outlaw. In the end though, the most valuable lesson in this story is that one should never give up hope and, ultimately, love can conquer all.

What a great start! I can't wait to read more of the Sinner's Tribe MC series!
