Blood Brothers MC, 1

Holly Maxwell has been waiting tables in outback pubs and dive bars for as long as she can remember. Never settling in one place, she’s a vagrant with dreams—until Roach Bane enters her world, swinging fists and smashing faces to defend her honor.

Swept off her feet by the heavily inked President of the Blood Brothers MC, she soon finds herself thrown head first into the murky waters of club life, organized crime, and rival clubs, set against the stark beauty of remote, rural Western Australia.

Be Warned: anal sex, fisting, sex toys, menage sex (MFM)



The heavily inked biker with blue eyes, a dark, full beard and shaved head, barrels across the room, a juggernaut of a man. With wide shoulders and impressive guns, he destroys everything in his path like a bull in a China shop. He knocks the slimeball’s cronies flying from their chairs before they can even stand, then headbutts the skeezy prick who’s got hold of me.

I’ve never seen this guy in my life, but he’s coming to my rescue like I’m some sort of princess. As full-figured as I am, I’m only ever looked at like a piece of meat or an easy mark. I can’t possibly have any intrinsic value when I’ve got tits big enough to smother a man, and an ass that would make Sir Mix-A-Lot weep. This patched behemoth is the only one who’s ever stood up for me, and I’ve waited a lot of tables in a lot of bars.

In an instant I’m free, and the dirtbag falls to the floor like a sack of shit—knocked out cold. His mates scramble to their feet and launch themselves at my hero, but he’s undaunted, placing himself between them and me without a second thought. Their fists don’t even hit their intended target. My biker deflects their attacks as easily as if they were tantruming toddlers swatting at him with overtired, half-hearted swings.

Redirecting their weight, he seizes them both by the backs of their heads and smashes their faces together. The sickening crack of teeth, or a nose, rings out in the unnatural quiet that’s fallen over the Redrock Inn. There’s plenty of blood, and the goons wind up on the floor with their mate. I observe the mess, breathless, heart hammering in my chest.

“Anyone else want to dance?” he asks, only to be met with complete silence.

The pub manager—my manager, Harold—gives the biker a solid nod and turns the music back up. “Sarah, Kate, can you lend a hand out front?” he asks.

The two other waitresses hurry to clean up the broken glass and upturned furniture, while our patrons slowly return to their drinks and conversations. Just another day in an Aussie pub.

“Are you hurt?”

“Huh?” I blink, staring at the chaos. Strong hands give my upper arms a gentle squeeze, and suddenly those startling blue eyes are staring into my soul.

“Are you hurt?” he repeats, moving his grip to my wrist. Turning my hand over in his, he inspects for damage. “It’s going to bruise up,” he observes before lifting his gaze. “Can I get some ice over here?” he calls across the bar.

Harold scoops a handful of ice and wraps it up in a napkin, passing it over without a word.

“What’s your name?” the blue-eyed biker asks, applying the makeshift cold-pack to my inner wrist.

“It’s Holly,” I stammer, dragging my gaze from where our hands are touching, and back up to his rugged, but handsome face. “I’m sorry this happened. You shouldn’t have had to get involved.” I lick my lips, suddenly flustered and full of nerves.

“I’m Roach,” he says with the hint of a smile.

“Like a cockroach?” I ask, scrunching up my nose.

“I’m not easy to kill, love. Could probably survive the apocalypse truth be told.”

I swallow the urge to melt on the spot. His touch is electrifying! “Does that mean more than a few have tried?”

Roach smirks, moving the cold-pack to another tender spot. “I’ve lost count,” he admits casually. “But I have a good memory for faces, and I haven’t seen yours here before.”

I feel my cheeks flush with heat, and tuck a long red ringlet behind my ear self-consciously. “I, ah—I’ve only been here a couple of weeks. I tend to move around a lot. Wherever the work is, you know?”

“Well, Holly, it’s not in my nature to stand by when ladies are being abused. I have a code. All my men do. You don’t get to wear Blood Brothers colors if you have no honor.”

“Thank you,” I answer. “I’m grateful. I’ve never had anyone stand up for me like that before. You’re like a mountain with fists. Those guys stood no chance.”

Roach’s baby blues hold my gaze. “Then you can’t have met any good men,” he answers simply. “There’s a lot of shit out there on the road, giving our kind a bad name, but not all of us are tactless, small-dick hoons.”

I nearly choke on my own saliva at the mention of dick, and mask my awkward cough with a laugh. “I have heard small-dick energy is toxic,” I joke.

“They have too much to prove, love. It fucks with their heads. A real man knows where he stands in the world and who he is. His actions speak for him.”

“Well, then, you’re definitely one of the good guys,” I say with a grin, before averting my attention to my feet. I bite my lip.

“I don’t know about that,” Roach says. “I like to live outside of labels like that, myself. I’m no saint, but I ain’t no piece of shit either.”

First Blood
Written by Loubie73 on 29th Oct 2023

Holy cow! This book doesn’t hold back! It’s not very long but it definitely packs a lot in. The sex is boiling hot and the story is really good I just wanted it to be longer so the story had more detail and wasn’t over so quickly. I still loved the book though.

Great story
Written by kdavis on 29th Oct 2023

This is the first time I've read a book by this author. This was a short story with a great storyline. I loved the characters. There was plenty of sizzling spice. I'm glad that Holly decided to go with Roach as they were perfect together. Holly finds her inner badass. Very entertaining and I really enjoyed it.

Great short MC romance
Written by Ash J on 29th Oct 2023

I really enjoyed this book. I liked how Holly was a bigger woman and still attracted the attention of the fierce MC president. I also loved how Holly stuck up for herself with the villain, which made her a bada**. The menage aspect surprised me but was super enjoyable and steamy. Can't wait to read more stories from this series!

First Blood Book 1 of Blood Brothers MC Faedra Rose The story and characters, Holly and Roach, were wonderfully written and nicely developed. I enjoyed the chemistry, drama and journey. Great read.

First Blood
Written by Danisbooksmut on 4th Jul 2023

One really positive thing about this book is the fmc Holly is a very curvy girl and whilst there is derogative comments made about her size by others and herself the main male character Roach loves her size and talks about it in a positive manner, he encourages her curves and to be healthy in a way that is sensitive and as a plus size reader I really appreciated that the author went to the effort to do that. The story is super fast paced - its instalust and instalove from the get go and they are fiery when together with some beautiful kinky spice. As expected from an MC romance there is danger but Holly shows her strength and comes out fighting, showing that she's a worthy partner for Roach. We don't meet many side characters from the MC club but those we do make a great positive impression and I look forward to reading more about them.

5 stars of awesomeness
Written by Nicole P on 4th Jul 2023

What a fantastic start to the series. I absolutely loved reading Holly & Roach's story. She's a curvy waitress that has never settled in one place. That all changes when she's hassled at work by some bikers & Roach steps in to protect her. The desire that sparks between them is like an inferno. Holly can't believe that a sexy MC president like him would want her. Roach knew immediately that she was it for him. Can he show her that he loves her as she is. I highly recommend giving their story a read. As an Aussie I loved the Aussie vibe of the book. I can't wait for the next book.

Blood Brothers
Written by Danee on 4th Jul 2023

Blood Brothers MC is a new beginning of what I hope will be a series from author Faedra Rose. The story of Holly and Roach, Holly has a bit of a hard time and low self esteem, but Roach sees it differently and makes her think differently about herself and with his help she thinks differently and knows she can achieve more. The patience he has with her is amazing and how they grow together has been amazing. And the MC part was delicious. If you like motorcycle club stories, this is definitely recommended!

Slightly OTT Australian MC story
Written by Hotrelle on 4th Jul 2023

I loved reading this very sexy little story about the leader of an Australian MC club and a waitress. Yes, it's ever so slightly over the top but has so many Aussie phrases and words written into the humour too. I can't wait to see who the next instalment is about.

Holly and Roach’s story has them meeting when he stops at a pub where she is a waitress at. He helps her with a rival mc manhandling her. He invites her to leave with him and she does. She has no idea what his world is about until she’s smack dab in the middle of it. But he helps her overcome all her insecurities by being reassuring. But the other mc bro he bring into the relationship caught me unaware.

Amazing couple.
Written by Juliet18 on 4th Jul 2023

I have never read anything by Faedra Rose, but it was an amazing book. Roach and Holly are amazing characters. Roach does not know Holly at first, but when Holly is being manhandled by one of the pub patrons Roach steps in to help. And that is just the beginning of this amazing read. Spicy in just the right way. I hope this series continues as it started, amazingly.

Written by Shadowisalive on 26th Jun 2023

Sometimes romance books can be a bit too much; they move too quickly and the ending always feels rushed. That is NOT the case here. Faedra did a great job writing the details into every part of the story, nothing felt forced or out of place. The sex scenes were hot and plentiful.

Fast moving
Written by Steacyn on 26th Jun 2023

This book is hard core. Extra fast moving with a touch of everything. Great to read a big girl romance. Not a clean romance but down right dirty and wonderful.

MC Biker Romance
Written by Vicky N on 26th Jun 2023

This was a very easy read with plenty of intrest to keep you wanting to know how the story ends. A story that starts with helping a girl in trouble ends up with her becoming the love of his life with a few bumps along the way. Can't wait to read the rest of the series

A real page turner!!

Faedra Rose is a new author for me. I really enjoyed this fast paced new MC read! Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Sweet and spicy
Written by Reensburger on 26th Jun 2023

This is my first time reading this author and it won't be the last! I loved the Australian slang and nothing about this book was expected but I loved it all the same. Holly is a curvy, larger woman with no family, friends or home, she's nomadic and works at outback bars whilst traveling. An outback bar is where she meets Roach. Strong hot alpha who is willing to do anything for Holly. This book has great instalove and hot scenes with Roach willing to do anything to make his woman happy.

First Blood Book 1 of Blood Brothers MC
Written by Makeen on 26th Jun 2023

First Blood by Faedra Rose is the first in a series about an MC in Western Australia. Roach is the president and headed back home when he encounters Holly in a diner waiting tables. He’s a big, muscular man and she’s a curvy red head: their physical attraction is immediate. She has no home and takes him up on his offer to be his woman. Insta- love, sexually compatible with kinks they find in common, and emotionally supportive makes this couple feel like they’re totally meant to be together. Faedra’s narrative and a really filthy fun dialogue pack a lot in a short story. There’s danger, a beautiful setting, and some great characters. Can’t wait to read the next book!

Super hot and steamy with the best ending
Written by Sarah ES on 26th Jun 2023

This book was filled with Instalove, insecurities, and a bad ass bitch who finally found where she belongs. There were some emotional ups and downs along with plenty of steam and action to keep you on the edge of your seat. Great job and I can’t wait for the next book!!! ??

First Blood
Written by Karen99 on 26th Jun 2023

Fast paced steamy erotic romance with a HEA. Roach saved Holly from a bad situation waiting to happen, swept her off her feet and whisked her away to his MC. He knew she was the one for him! Holly had always been on the move but knew Roach was what she was looking for but she still wanted to experience different things and Roach was only too happy for her to do so! An enjoyable, fast paced romance

Another awesome read from a favorite author
Written by Leeannwriter on 26th Jun 2023

First Blood is an MC romance the way only Faedra Rose can do it! Her lyrical language again sets a scene, this time bringing Australia and the motorcycle culture there to vivid life. The story begins with the hint of a budding love story and soon develops into the real thing. Rose would disappoint readers if her tale wasn’t smoking hot and even decadent but in a delicious way and she does not disappoint. It’s a good read with the authentic gritty feel of an MC read. And for dessert, readers who haven’t yet Book three in her Infernal Monsters series will get a tasty treat that will send them for more!

Written by Alexis H on 26th Jun 2023

Roach and Holly's story is a fast-paced, Insta love, Bike Gang in Australia that will surely have you glued to the very end.

Wild reading ride with danger and smoking hot chemistry
Written by LBing on 26th Jun 2023

This was a wild ride of an MC romance and it had everything I expect out of one. Intense, fast paced, smoking hot chemistry, drama, danger and a wonderful twisted ending ;D Holly and Roach met and it was like they were meant to be together. Their connection was instant and strong. Add in that their kinks worked along the same lines, well, you know you're going to be in for an engaging read. I loved how strong Holly became and Roach was beyond awesome for an MC prez. Kind, firm, in touch with what he likes, and his feelings...their romance is one to make you sigh :) I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next. Well done!

Great Book!!!
Written by Amy J on 26th Jun 2023

I loved reading First Blood the first book in this new series and oh boy it was a fast read for me and so HOT. I can’t wait for more!!!

interesting story
Written by Mr. Bobos on 26th Jun 2023

I am new to the MC genre. I liked the story overall. I thought it was well written. They "sexy parts" were a bit much for me so I skipped over part of them; but if you like that then you will like this book. I gave it 5 stars because I liked the story. I also like that it was set in Australia. One thing I remember is the phrase "kangaroo in headlights". I chuckled as in the US we would say "deer in headlights".

Amazing fast paced spicy novella!!
Written by books.tings on 26th Jun 2023

4/5 stars!! No clue what I was expecting but this was definitely something else. Since I’m Australian, it was actually SO nice and refreshing to read Aussie slang. Such a great spicy, fast past read. It would’ve been nice to get a lil bit more backstory or a bit more emotional depth/ build between characters. I mean the whole thing literally transpired within a week and a bit and SO much happens. But honestly, it’s great for what it is. I was also very surprised with that ending… did not see it coming (never really read about that specific thing in books before). This is a first for me from this author and I’m super intrigued to see what else she’s written. I received a free copy of this book via Evernight and am voluntarily leaving a review <3

This was my first book by Faedra Rose, but so not my last! She’s amazing with the kinky dark romance genre!

Fast paced, highly steamy desires, action, MFM romance

Written by CarKar on 9th Jun 2023

This is the first time I read Faedra Rose. The story was unexpected. First, loved the character evolution of Holly from struggling, insecure waitress to Baddest B around! Loved Roach and his high emotional IQ on top of his sexy, protective alpha maleness. Loved the inclusion of loyal Bull, too. The WA back drop was new for me … it added an exotic dimension for me. There was a little bit to of everything in this … darkness, light and bright, filth and love. Unexpected.

Written by Lynn on 9th Jun 2023

insta love and insta lust
Written by Mozzy on 9th Jun 2023

So so good, enjoyed every bit of this story. The chemistry between them both was hot and very heavy, and it was very enjoyable for a insta love MC romance book. Roach( president of the Blood brothers MC) was on the way back to his club when he decided to stop and get a drink from the pub. But what he saw when he went into there was a waitress getting harrassed by a man who had no right to start touching her. Holly a full figure women was taken with Roach and when she goes out to lunch with him her fate is sealed. A little hanky panky and Holly is working no more she agrees to go with Roach to his club. I really loved this story, in my opinion its worth the read
