Satan's Beasts MC: Nomad Chapter, 3

Every year, Bad leaves the club for a few short hours to take care of … something. Ten years ago, his best friend died in a driveby shooting, leaving Charity alone. Bad was told to stay away from her. She was his best friend’s little sister, and so, he did. He continued the path of joining the Nomad Chapter of the Satan’s Beasts MC, and lived his life on the road. Seeing Charity once a year.

Wanderlust. She was born with it. For ten years, she lived the dream her brother had for her, but now it’s over. She doesn’t want to be trapped in a dream that was never her own. Selling all her furniture, and finishing up the lease on her apartment, she hits the open road. Her dream was finally going to come alive.

Ten years of keeping his needs under wraps comes to a head as he takes that first kiss. They have one night. One night to get their fill of each other, and then, they’ll part ways. Only, one night isn't enough.

It will never be enough.

Will Bad allow Charity to live her life without him? Or will they finally give each other a chance and realize they were destined to be together?

Be Warned: anal sex



With a towel in hand, she stepped out of her room but came flush against Bad’s body. He’d moved so close, and she hadn’t even heard him.

“Oh,” she said. “Er, here’s a towel.” She shoved it against his chest, trying not to think about how hard and firm it was.

She inhaled, only to detect the leathery scent as well as his masculine one combined with it.

Charity had always had a crush on him. Even after all of this time, it hadn’t changed. Bad never looked at her as anything other than his best friend’s little sister. It was embarrassing. There was a time she thought he might have felt something, but … nothing ever happened.

Tilting her head back, she tried to imagine him not kissing her. She didn’t want his kisses. She didn’t want anything from him. Not a damn thing.

Keep lying to yourself.

Bad took the towel and stepped past her, entering the bathroom.

Get a grip on yourself.

It was impossible.

She moved toward the kitchen. There were only two mugs on the counter, one kettle. Everything else was sold. She would be leaving everything else in the apartment.

Spooning out the coffee into the mugs, she didn’t bother with cream or sugar. Neither of them liked to water down their coffee intake. She also liked strong, dark coffee.


With the heavy scent of bitter coffee in the air, she turned to find Bad had wrapped a towel around his waist, but all of him was on display. She hadn’t seen him like this in over ten years.

Don’t stare.

It was impossible not to. He was so close, the apartment seeming to shrink with each second he was inside.

“I made you, a, er, I made coffee.” She picked up the coffee and stepped toward him, trying to keep her gaze away from his large, muscular, and heavily inked chest. A skull decorated his chest right over his heart. There were also some gravestones, as well as a hand coming out of the dirt.

Nibbling on her lip, she tried to not be distracted by him.

Bad took the coffee from her, but he didn’t move.

Why was he so close?

“Are you going to argue with me some more?” she asked.


“You’re not?”

He chuckled. “It’s not my place to keep you where you don’t want to be.”

Charity blew across the surface of her coffee before taking a sip.

She had just finished sipping her drink when Bad took the cup away from her lips.

“What’s wrong?” she asked.

He didn’t answer. His hand cupped her cheek, and he tilted her head back. She looked up at him, a little surprised, and then, he slammed his lips down on hers, and all thought left her.

Not the typical HEA
Written by RahiaLeight on 15th Oct 2022

I really liked this story. There's a bit of heartache, plenty of stubbornness, and an explosion of heat and love. I liked that it wasn't a typical HEA with marriage and babies. Also, it's a short read, so you can finish rather quickly - like a lunch break - and the story feels complete, even if you wish there was just a bit more of Bad.

How long will Bad hide behind misplaced loyalty to a dead friend?
Written by Nicole Potter on 15th Oct 2022

I absolutely loved Bad & Charity. Their story is more than 10 years in the making & over that time emotions & desire have built to an explosive point. This year a sudden rainstorm is the catalyst that tips them over the edge. They only have this one night. How long will Bad use misplaced loyalty to his dead friend as an excuse to deny his feelings before he's hauling arse to find his Charity?

A couple to root for
Written by LBing on 15th Oct 2022

This was a fun read that was actually based around a sad situation - the death of Stevie, Bad's best friend and Charity's big bro. She had been crushing on Bad for years but he didn't seem interested. She also tried to live the live Stevie wanted for her but it was killing her spirit. Bad was warned away from her but he'd been crushing on her, too. When they came together, it was hot and so good...until he snuck out after. This truly crushed Charity and cemented her wish to set out and be a wanderer. Bad had some help from his buds to see the light and try and make things right with her. I loved these two together but really could have given Bad a shake or two ;P Good fun!

Short & Fantastic
Written by Dawn Roberts on 15th Oct 2022

This was a short but fantastic read. I was pulled in from page one and enjoyed every second of this book.

Time wasted
Written by Bookbunny on 11th Oct 2022

Bad has known Charity for a long time. She was his best friend’s little sister. He never missed visiting his buddy on the anniversary. Charity loved her brother but it was time to move on. Stay in one town wasn’t what she wanted. She wanted to travel and see the world. So much time lost because Bad wanted to honor a friend’s memory when the woman that he loved was right there. I have to say if it wasn’t for Charity wanting to move forward, these two would always be apart. Thank goodness for Piper and Colonel always giving a voice.

Bad and Charity
Written by weaveswife on 11th Oct 2022

Bad and Charity have loved each other for a long time. But her brother interfered and Bad didn't want to hurt his friendship with him. Charity thought he saw her just as his best friend's little sister. They weren't seeing each other correctly. They were making assumptions about what the other really wanted. Thankfully the old ladies of the other guys and his Pres got through to him. They are perfect together.

Quick read

Charity lived the life her brother always wanted for her, but now she wants a new start, but not before having one night with the man she's always cared for, Bad. But is one night enough? Well writtens steamy short read, a best friends little sister, biker romance.

a long awaited coming together
Written by memes on 27th Sep 2022

This is a fairly short read and part of a series. I think you could read this book without having read the others in the series, you would not know all of the other characters and the complete picture, but you could still enjoy it. Bad is part of an MC and every year he makes a trip to visit his best friends gravesite and his best friends sister, Charity. Charity has had a crush on Bad ever since she met him, she is deciding to move on with her life and travel the country. There isn't any action or violence in this story. It has drama or turmoil, mostly it's inner turmoil coming from Bad. There are some steamy scenes in the story, just a couple. It wasn't a full story just a quick story about two people who have wanted each other for a long time, but never took that final step.

Written by Heather7170 on 27th Sep 2022

Bad and Charity’s relationship was one based on the loss of her brother and his best friend. Stevie, Charity’s brother died and for ten years Bad would she her at his grave once a year. They had each wanted one another but Stevie had mad Bad promise not to be with her. Charity stayed in her mundane life for ten years trying to live how her brother expected. She couldn’t do it anymore. She was gonna leave and hit the open road to travel. That’s the life she wanted. Bad couldn’t believe his ears, he was a Nomad with the MC, could she really want that life? Could they really have it all?

Charity lost her parents and her brother who was 10 years older brought her up. He died in a drive-by shooting and every year on the anniversary she sees Bad at the graveside. She has a bad case of wanderlust and has sold everything and will begin her travels once her lease has expired.

A good short read on Bad and Charity, who’s had a long time crush on each other. Bad kept his distance due to promising his club brother who’s sister was Charity that he wouldn’t date her. After getting the chance to be with Charity, the heat between these two was full on hot. Definitely a good read to see how far this relationship progresses as they both give into their desires.
