When violence sweeps through their town, the Men of Hell must figure out who's after their club.
Someone is watching Romeo Barrigan's every move. Chloe Matsumoto's favorite pastime is studying the Men of Hell Motorcycle Club's president. Ever since he helped rescue her deaf cousin from the hands of a human-trafficking ring, Chloe has become fascinated with him and now wonders how she can repay him.
Daxton Squire is the enforcer of the Men of Hell. He's filled with self-loathing after failing to recognize the threat from the former club president. When he spots someone tailing Romeo, he vows to protect him at any cost. Only Dax didn't expect to be so attracted to the little stalker.
Violence sweeps through Bair, Nebraska, threatening the town and the club. Romeo has a lot on his plate. Not only does he have to figure out who's after his club, he also has to determine how the hell he ended up in a ménage relationship—and keep those he loves safe from the menace.

I'll admit it, I've gone a little mad for MAD DELIGHTS! But be aware that this book has a ton of blood, gore, violence (toward men & women), murder, prostitution and sex that may not be 100% consensual. Still with me? Lets talk.
The Men of Hell MC is cleaning up after their former president rained misery down on the entire club. Now reluctantly in charge, President Romeo Barrigan doesn't want the headache, but he really didn't have a choice. The club's exploits have caught the attention of surgical technician Chloe Matsumoto after Romeo saved the life of her cousin. Chloe's crazy new obsession leads her to Bair, Nebraska where she can work out a way to repay Romeo, preferably with loads of sweaty hot sex. But hold up…she totally doesn't expect to have a connection with a second man, the club's enforcer Daxton Squire, and now all she can think about is the two men making her scream, loudly, all night long. Amid threats to the Men of Hell, Romeo and Dax have their hands full, but neither can deny what Chloe can do for the club...and for them. Can this tiny little woman hold her own with the big bad Men of Hell?
MAD DELIGHTS is certainly an apt title for this prequel to Madness Ends, as Romeo, Dax and Chloe are all seriously mad in one way or another. The chemistry between the three of them was amazing...so thick and raw and downright delicious. Chloe is one seriously whackadoodle chick, and I am utterly in love with her! Her special brand of crazy could only be appreciated and understood by people who are also slightly certifiable, and Romeo and Dax are those people.
None of the characters in MAD DELIGHTS are good people; in fact they're most decidedly bad guys. Between drug running, murder, prostitution, guns, the Japanese mafia and anything else you can expect from an outlaw biker gang and a Yakuza princess, all three of them are people you wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley. BUT, that's kinda what I love about this book - there's no roses and flowers and sweet words and misunderstandings and pleas for forgiveness…it's just mayhem and murder and a lot of indiscriminately erotic sex. YES PLEASE, I NEED MORE!!!
Bottom Line: It feels a little whacked for me to gush over how much I love this über violent, nasty, smutty book…but it's really REALLY freakin amazing. Slam dunk, Ms. Carter.

Motorcycle club stories tend to feature bad boys who corrupt innocent girls. However, author Beth Carter has rolled out an MC romance that shatters the traditional mold.
MAD DELIGHTS features the Men of Hell MC, complete with all of the traditional MC trappings. However, there are two things that stand out.
First is the depiction of the female main character. Chloe is a fearless gal who has her eyes on Romeo, the head of the MC. She is definitely not your typical naïve woman just waiting for corruption.
The second thing that stands out is the solid way the writer handles a ménage relationship between Chloe, Romeo and Dax. The chemistry is off-the-charts hot, yet there is plenty of content to serve as substance.
When the club faces a serious challenge, unexpected resources become available. The only question is whether the price will be too high.
Chloe is one heck of a complicated character, which makes her just perfect for this role. This is an MC romance with a definite twist.
