Blurb
There are a lot of things in this world that are easy to escape from. Having a son you didn't ask for isn't one of them. 

Mack is a nomad. He likes his own space and he struggles with emotion. His past is grey and his future looks about the same. That is until his ex-girlfriend dies and his son is handed over to him. A two month old baby he didn't know existed. Until now. 

His world comes crashing down around him. 

Desperate, he hires a nanny. 

Jaylah has gotten herself into some serious trouble, so when she sees the job opening for a nanny pop up, she jumps on it. Of course she's not a nanny, but she figures she can pull it off. I mean, how hard can it be? 

She's thrown into a world of diapers, hourly feedings and a whole lot of laundry. She's also introduced to the most rugged, gorgeous man she's ever had the pleasure of meeting. 

The best part, he's the baby's father. 

The worst part, he's a biker. 

Their sexual tension is huge, but he's a hard nut to crack. She'll get in, though. She makes it her mission to break through the wall Mack has built so high around himself. 

Her world is about to spiral out of control, and she's taking Mack along for the ride.


----Review----

Bella Jewel has done it again... Her and her sexy Joker's Wrath Motorcycle Club. I LOVE.. Love. Love. love biker books. Like seriously, I could read them ALLLLL day. So when the opportunity to read a MC book by the one of the Queen's of MC's presents itself, I leap, hop, skip and jump straight on it. 

Anguish is the third book in the Joker's Wrath MC series and it was another hit. I loved dark and broody Mack from what we saw in the last book. His had a mysterious vibe to him and made me wonder who Mack really was. And holy crap, his "nanny" Jaylah, man was she perfect. And not in the sense of miss priss and always straight and narrow. No, I mean she was perfect because she fit in with our bikers perfect. She was snarky, she was sassy, and she most certainly didn't let anyone talk down to her.


She was strong, independent and just spoke her mind and I LOVED her. She, so far, is my favorite female lead in a Bella Jewel book. Mack and her had magnetic chemistry. They fought just as much sexually as they did personality wise and it give this story an edge that just made it different. I really enjoy the dynamic of this MC. They are so funny and so loving toward each other.

Mack was set not to know his son... And Jaylah, she changed everything for him. She made everything in his life slowly start to get better.

I don't want to give too much away because I know this story isn't finished, I know we will have more Joker's Wrath soon. But this story was just another reason why I love Bella Jewel's writing and story telling.

Mack and Jaylah were hysterical, they were beautiful and man were they HOT. I can't wait for more from the MC... Can.NOT.wait.

4.5 STARS!

Prologue
“You stole my fuckin’ drugs.”

The foot at my throat presses me further into the cold, scratchy pavement. I gasp, my fingers clawing at fleshy ankles. His skin doesn’t budge; my nails are too short to break the flesh that I’m so desperately scraping at. It does nothing to move him, or send him on his way. Instead, he pushes harder, cutting off more of my air supply.

“That’s not exactly how it went down,” I croak, struggling.

“You were meant to deliver them; instead you fuckin’ sold them, and ran with the money.”

He’s right about that. I did take the drugs and sell them. I had good reason—my boyfriend was in trouble, and I was doing anything I could to get him out of trouble. I didn’t think ahead. I didn’t realize that I’d then owe a very unhappy drug dealer money. Not my finest moment, that’s for damned sure.

“I had no choice . . . I was helping someone I care about.”

He presses his boot down further into my throat, and my air supply narrows down to a dangerous level. My head pounds as the blood and oxygen are cut from my brain.

“I bet that person ain’t here helpin’ you tonight, now, are they?”

No, he’s right about that. Samuel is probably sleeping with someone else. The moment his debt was cleared, he left me. The dirty, cheap fucker left me. Now I’m dealing with the backlash. A furious drug dealer who wants his money.

Money I don’t have.

“Don’t I get,” I gasp, “one chance to get your money?”

He glares down at me through angry grey eyes. I squirm again as my vision starts flittering in and out. Shit, I’m going to pass out and he’s probably going to kill me, or worse, drag my helpless body away to do God knows what with.

“I have m-m-m-money,” I croak.

“If you had money, you wouldn’t have stolen my drugs.”

“I . . .” God, I’m on the edge. “I can get it. I s-s-s-swear.”

He stares at me, and for each second he does, my vision swims. Then, much to my relief, he lifts his boot off and reaches down, hurling my weak body up. He pulls me close, so close that our noses touch. My knees wobble and I have to push all my focus into not falling flat on my face and giving him another chance to take me.

“Listen, and listen fuckin’ good. You’ve got two weeks, and trust me, that’s me bein’ fuckin’ generous. Get my money, or I come for you.”

Shit.

I nod.

“Don’t try and run. You do, I’ll fuckin’ find you.”

I close my eyes, take a deep, burning breath and nod again.

“Two weeks.”

Then he’s gone.

And I know . . . I just know . . . I’m in deep, deep shit.
