Daisy “Little Flower” Anderson has lived her entire life on the sidelines of the Renegade Sons MC. Her father is a member, and her mother a club whore turned old lady. Not wanting to follow their footsteps, she chose a different path; one that keeps her close to the biker family she loves, but out of the club. 

Struggling to keep it together, she never thought she would have anything of her own, until she met Preach. He is everything she swore she didn't want in life. One night of passion leads to unexpected consequences, and she knows, now more than ever, it’s time to move forward. Garrett “Preach” Austin lived his life caught in his father’s iron fist. He never thought he would want anything more than freedom from his past, until he met his “Little Flower”. She shows him there is more to life than pain. 

Preach has a secret; one that forces him to choose between Daisy and his brothers. Even though he loves Daisy, the Renegade Sons are the only true family he has. He knows he can’t have her, yet he can’t let her go. When Daisy moves on, Preach realizes what he’s lost. Can he prove that he’s the man for her, or is he too late?

Renegade Reject contains adult situations some readers may find offensive. This is a raw and gritty story involving explicit sex, foul language, violence and drug use. Not intended for readers under 18.


I try to pull my hand from Preach’s. ”I’m gonna go sit with Grams.”
Not letting me go, he says, “No.  You’re staying with me.”
With that, he pulls away and leads me to the bar. 
My anger starts to boil, and I can’t hold it in any longer.  “Why, so you can show me off to the rest of these guys?”
He finally stops walking and looks down at me.  “What are you talking about?”
“You told that guy he had to wait until my birthday to claim me.”
“What the fuck are you talking about?” he asks again, sounding confused.
Using my free hand to motion behind me, I repeat his words.  “She’s only seventeen. Gotta wait ‘til her birthday to brand her.  I can’t believe you’d think that I’d ever be okay with some random man branding me!”
He stares at me for a long minute while he processes my words, fighting a smile the entire time.  “Daisy, I promise you that dickhead and none of his brothers are ever gonna claim you.  Before long, you’re gonna belong to a Renegade Son.  I guarantee you that.”
“What do you mean?” I ask, shocked that again he’s assuming that I will let someone claim me. 
He finally lets the smile take shape as he leans down to whisper in my ear.  “You’ll be finding out soon.”
He straightens and continues walking through the clubhouse.  He leads me around the room by my hand, talking to one man after another along the way, but the only thing I really noticed was that each time Preach would introduce me to someone, he would loosely wrap his arms around me. I swear he was staking his claim to everyone inside of the club, wordlessly announcing to the world that I’m his.  By the time we make it to the table where my Grams is sitting, I am beyond confused and horny as hell.  What’s going on?  He can’t want me, can he?  Lord, I hope he does. 
 ❥My Review:
“We’re not normal men. We take what we want, and that includes our women.”
I loved Preach+Daisy’s story just as much as Kidd+Jenna’s, if not more! Just as raw and gritty but with a lot more angst.

You instantly fall for Preach, because he starts off as this really sweet guy. Since we start the story off with his background, we get to know all about his past, thus allowing us to understand him better. 
Though it doesn’t excuse why he was so stupid for the better half of the book. I desperately wanted Preach to hang on and not fail Daisy, but sadly he couldn’t do it. He gives in to his lustful desires and ruins everything he has with her. 

Daisy is sweet and spicy. I loved her character so much. She’s like a mini Ice/Jenna, but with a lot more sweetness. Yes, she was innocent and naive at times, but that girl can hold her own! Well, except when it comes to Preach. For the most part she does okay, but love makes us stupid at times. *shrugs*

It was so difficult to contain my anger for Preach. I wanted to punch him in the throat repeatedly at so many different points in the story. I just couldn’t comprehend why he did the things he did. Was it a biker thing? A man thing? Or just a plain douchebag thing? Whatever the reason was I let it slide. 
There is however one person I wanted punch more and that was Leah, Daisy’s supposed best friend. You’ll want to jump into the story and handle that tramp yourself. Trust me!

Another thing that didn’t bother me too much was the violence, but it may be uncomfortable for some readers. It wasn’t as intense as it was in RL, but still pretty brutal. I don’t know if it’s because I watch Sons of Anarchy religiously, but I never batted an eye at the things that happened in the book. It is after all fiction and that biker lifestyle isn’t completely unusual. 

For fans of the first book, Renegade Lady, you’ll love seeing the other characters pop up in this story. They’re all one big dysfunctional family, but they’re always there for each other. We even get to know more about the Mary, Holt and Wayne love triangle.

Unlike LadyReject has no life or death situations and very little violence compared to book 1. Instead, this book is more focused on betrayals and struggles between the characters and with themselves. 

I’m eager to get to Timber’s story next! Can’t wait to see him settle down as well. 
I recommend starting this series if you haven’t already and would advise you to start with Renegade Lady first. 
I do have to warn you though, you shouldn’t read it if cheating, profanity and violence is a hard limit for you. These books have lots of that stuff!

*A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the authors for an honest review. This has in no way affected my review/opinion. 

My Rating: 5 kisses
The special limited edition of Renegade Reject includes the novelette Renegade Wedding. Join Kidd and Jenna as they tie the knot in true biker fashion. 
*Only available until June*
