Tour, Review & Giveaway: Hell's Knights & Heaven's Sinners by Bella Jewel

Spike knows tragedy, he knows that feelings are better left hidden. He refuses to put his heart out there again, it's a pain he's not willing to ever let himself feel. He's got a mission. He's got a goal. Nothing is going to get in his way. He will seek his revenge.

But then there's Ciara, the sister of his deceased wife. She's beautiful and damned determined to throw herself into his life in hopes they can reform an old friendship, but Spike won't hear of it, and Ciara refuses to give up.

Who will win the battle of wills?

Wow..Just Wow. I loved Spike's story. After reading Hell's Knights, I wasn't sure what to expect. But already loving Spike from book one had me totally intrigued. I'm so glad I read it. It is very much recommended you read book one first. My review is below and you will know my POV, but there are some pivotal parts to Spikes story that you will need to know. And Cade is delicious.

Spike...Oh lord Spike. Why the name you ask?? Well it appears that our man Spike has some serious fetishes. Like, having the women he has sex with take the spikes off of his dick piercings. Yep. (s) multiple. He says its part of the experience with him. YUMMY!!!

As we learn in book one, Spike had the ultimate tragedy happen to him, forcing him to live with the guilt for years. He blames himself and Cade for his tragic loss. While he is the president of his own motorcycle club Heavens Sinner's, he does have a pretty good relationship with Jackson the president of Hell's Knights. In turn he has a good relationship with his daughter, Addison, Cage's Old Lady. He is interwinded throughout both MC's allowing us to continue the journey will all of the characters from the first book.

Ciara. I'll be straight. I didn't think I'd like her. With her sister being with Spike, I thought that their relationship was totally doomed. But Bella did a wonderful job building their characters and having me fall deeply in love with Ciara and rooting for her to be with Spike. I loved her determination. I loved their pasts and flashbacks. 

Overall, this book was hot and sexy. It provided me with action, love, lust. It had great character development and descriptions of scenes. Bella did an awesome job with this one. I loved it. I recommend it for you biker lovin' bad boy lovers!

Goodreads Link:

“No, I guess I didn’t. I wanted to, but then Cheyenne came in and you took a liking to her, so I didn’t bother.”
“I went to her, and I fell in love with her, but she wasn’t what I wanted for myself, Tomcat. I wanted you, but you wouldn’t give me a God damned inch.”
“You didn’t think of telling me?” I snap, crossing my arms. “You didn’t think that maybe you should have said something before you just ran off with Cheyenne?”
“What was the fuckin’ point? You couldn’t fuckin’ see it. I tried, fuck knows I tried, and yet you didn’t see me. I was sick of tryin’. Cheyenne threw herself on me, and I thought what the fuckin’ heck?”
I feel my body begin to shake. “I didn’t see it, Spike. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to, it was because I was so scared I would ruin everything if you knew how I felt.”
“Fuck, Ciara, I was constant with you. I picked you up every mother fuckin’ day, I spent every mother fuckin’ weekend with you, I was there all the time.”
“I know that!” I cry. “God, Spike, I know you were ok? I didn’t see it. I was young and I didn’t fucking see it. Then she came along and I stopped believing there was a chance. It was not just on me, or you, it was on us both. We both walked away without telling each other there was so much more to it. I know what I gave up, I know I passed you over to her, and I regret it every day.”
“I don’t regret it, Tomcat. I loved Cheyenne, and I don’t regret marrying her…bu-”
I get to my feet, hurt. His words are something I already knew, but it’s the way he said them. He grips my arm before I can spin away, and yanks me back down. I land harshly, and slap his hand away but his grip is too strong, and I can’t get my hand out of his.
“One fucking moment,” I spit. “One fucking moment can’t go by without her being better. One fucking moment, I’d like to mean a tiny bit more than her. You can’t fucking see it, can you? You walk around with those stupid fucking rose colored glasses on, unable to see anything she did. I never doubted you loved her Spike, I knew you did. I saw it. I lived it. But for one fucking moment I wish it was me.”
I jerk my hand out of his grip, and spin, getting to my feet and turning to walk off.

“It was you,” he yells, stopping me in my tracks. “I don’t regret her, Ciara. Not for a fuckin’ second, I don’t regret lovin’ her, I don’t regret marryin’ her. Cheyenne changed my life, she changed a part of me, but you, Ciara, were the one who opened my heart. You were the first one to claim it, and you were the one who fuckin’ tore it out of my chest the day you ran off. You never gave me a mother fuckin’ chance to explain myself to you. I woke up after we slept together, and you were gone. Couldn’t fuckin find you. It was you who took my heart, and you who fuckin’ broke it. She picked the pieces up when I couldn’t find you, and so I stopped fighting. Cheyenne might have had me in the end, Tomcat, but my heart was always yours first.”

Sex. Who really knows sex? I mean, we've all had sex, great sex even but when you get down to the details, how many of us actually see sex for the raw, primal act that it is?

I thought I knew sex. I've had sex. Heck, I've felt lust. Once, I've even felt love. I thought I knew exactly what sex was. 

Until I met Cade.

He's the meaning of sex. 

He's a biker.

He's dangerous.

He's powerful.

He's dominant.

He wants me.

My world is about to change, for the better? I don't know. But here's my story, I hope you're ready for it because it's not the beautiful, heart wrenching story most people have to tell. It's passionate, forbidden, morally incorrect and downright, fucking beautiful.

Addison has lived in hell. Strike that...she's lived below hell. Her mother is a lowlife scum who allowed many things to happen to Addi at a young age. With everything that's happened to her, you'd think that Addison would be a shell of herself...but you'd be wrong. She's strong, determined and has a shit ton of spunk.

Cage has his own personal hell that has changed him into the person he is today. He's tough and takes no shit from anyone...until he meets Addison (who happens to the daughter of his president of the MC club). He's tough and demanding and SEXY!

Addison's past catches up with her sending her entire world into a tailspin crumbling it to the ground.

This book is graphic. As in the sex is graphic and the violence is graphic...beware. I personally was not ready and felt myself cringe quite a few times.

Addison...what is there to say about her but I LOVE HER. I felt Addi to my bones. Her strength knocked me on my ass. I loved how she stood up and always took care of herself. I thought that Bella did a great job with her character development of Addison. I felt a roller coaster of emotions with Addi and loved every second of it.

Cage, I wish I knew more about him. This is where the book was lacking for me. I love, LOVE, a strong ALPHA male, I crave them. Cage is totally that. But I needed more.We learn why he hurts and feels incredible guilt, but we don't learn about him. Does he have a family, brothers, what's his favorite food, does he like anything other than riding a bike? Yes, he's the VP of Hell's Sinners, but I want to dig in deep and drag everything out. What exactly makes him tick. Explore more of his life in the MC's.

Overall, I found this story good. I was interested and it kept a good pace. I thought that it could use more character development for Cage. Addison's character development was wonderful. The sex was hot and steamy. And Cage was HOT!

“Fuckin’ love you, sugar. You know that, yeah?”
I nod. “Cade, I know that. I’ve known that for a while now. The thing is-”
“I want you to know how much.”
Stubborn man is cutting me off at the one moment I want to tell him I love him.
“I know how much, the thing is-”
“Sugar, you’re fuckin’ changin’ everything I am.”
“You’re changing everything I am too, that’s why I wanted to-”
“Sugar, fuck,” he growls. “Do you ever stop talkin’ for five minutes?”
“I’m trying to-”
“Sugar!” he says, tugging my hands. “Shut the fuck up!”
“Why?” I cry.
“Because I’m tryin’ to fuckin’ ask you to marry me.”
My entire world stops. I feel like I’ve been punched in the chest, but in the best possible way. He wants to marry me? Cade Duke – big, bad biker – wants to marry me? I feel my eyes burn with unshed tears, as a feeling of pure joy rushes through my body.
