Review of Renegade Lady by Dawn Martens and Emily Minton & Giveaway!

Jenna “Ice” Chandler grew up as part of a motorcycle club. She considered it her home, until one wrong move made it her prison. After months of abuse, she is rescued by Chipper, who takes her to Big Clifty, Missouri, home of the Renegade Sons MC. 

Kiddrick “Kidd” Jones is the president of the Renegades. He knows there is something special about Ice the moment his older brother, Chipper, brings her into the club, but stays away, because she is too young.

When time comes for Ice to take her place in the club, she has two choices, become an old lady or a club whore. Not believing in love and knowing a man can never be faithful, she decides to earn her spot on her back.  

With each passing year, Kidd's feelings for Ice grows and the urge to make her his becomes stronger. Frustrated and jealous, he finally decides it’s time to claim her as his own. 

Will Ice finally thaw out and give love a chance, or is Kidd fighting a losing battle?

I was honored to beta read for Dawn and Emily and pleasantly surprised by this MC novel!

Jenna has had a hard life from the get-go. Her mother died from an overdose and her father, "Brew", handed her over to another member of the MC to use as he pleased. Though she was still a child herself, that didn't matter to Timmons and he was determined to make her his old lady.

When issues arise with the Mateland chapter of the Renegade Sons, Chipper shows up from Big Clifty to check things out. What he never expected to find was a young girl being beaten and raped by members of his own MC. He takes Jenna back to Big Clifty, where he and his wife, Mindy, raise her as their own daughter. There she meets Kidd, and although she is years younger than him, there is an instant attraction between them. Problem is, Kidd sees her as more of a sister and knows he can't have her since she is just shy of seventeen.

When Kidd comes back to Big Clifty after having been gone for a year, he discovers that Jenna has grown into a woman and the feelings he once had for her are stronger than ever. Unfortunately he has some extra baggage from Mateland, and even after tragedy hits home, he continues to keep Jenna at arms length because of her age. But that all changes the day she eighteen.

Just when you think things are going to take a turn for the better, tragedy strikes again and Kidd pushes Jenna even further away, this time possibly for good. Will they ever have their chance at a life together, or are some mistakes better left unforgiven? I'll leave that up to you to find out!

I really enjoyed this novel. It was so different from any other MC story I've read, and I loved all of the characters, especially Reese and Timber. The story flowed well and captured my attention from the very beginning...I couldn't put it down! The only issue I had was that I didn't feel as much of a romantic connection between Jenna and Kidd in the second half of the book. Other than that, the story was fantastic! I even caught myself crying while reading the epilogue! I highly recommend this book!
