This is one of the best books that I've read in a long time
Gypsy Bastards MC, 1
Being hurt and alone is nothing new to Hadley. She's survived on her own for as long as she can remember, and no one will dictate the way she lives her life. With loss and pain dominating her memories, how can she put her faith in someone again?
Having no one to depend on besides his club has hardened Brandon to the outside world—and it's exactly how he prefers it. The moment he lets people get close they always find a way to backstab him. There's no room for love in his world.
Hadley and Brandon need a reason to let their walls down and let love in. Can two broken souls find a way to save each other?
Moving on from the disappointment of Wolf not stopping me, I get comfortable. I get out of my jeans and sneakers, loosen the knot in Wolf’s t-shirt, and bundle my hair on my head in a messy bun. My hangover has completely left me and I decide to have a glass of wine and relax. A knock at my door has me putting down the glass and moving toward it. Storm sent a message earlier, saying she would be stopping by later to check on me. I don’t check the peephole but fling the door open, expecting to find her on the other side. Instead, Wolf stands there staring at me. His gaze scans me from top to toe before a mask of rage covers his face. He propels me back into the apartment, shutting the door behind him with the heel of his boot before he crowds me against the wall.
“Do you always answer the door half fucking naked?”
His voice is a low growl that causes goosebumps to pop up along my arms. “Huh?”
I know what he’s asking, but having him this close to me has fried my brain.
“Or were you expecting someone else?” He stares deep into my eyes as he waits for an answer.
“Who do you think I would be expecting?” Goading him probably isn’t the best idea, but at this moment, it’s all I have.
“Justice? Or perhaps whoever taught you how to ride on a bike?”
A burst of laughter leaves me. When it comes to this man, I rarely react the way I’m supposed to.
“Justice? Sure, he’s cute and all, but he just turned eighteen. That wouldn’t work for me. As for the riding, he won’t be coming around again.”
“So, you simply walk around half-naked and open the door without even checking first?”
Staring up at him, I have no answer. He steps closer and stands against me. His erection presses into my stomach and a sound I don’t even recognize leaves me. I sound wanton and needy.
Before I can comprehend what’s happening, Wolf crashes his mouth down on mine. His kiss isn’t soft. He runs his tongue along the seam of my lips before nipping at my bottom lip, prompting me to gasp. The moment my mouth opens, his tongue invades inside. His kiss overwhelms and dominates me, triggering my body to melt into him.
His hands glide down my back to grip my ass as he lifts me into the air. Wrapping my legs around him, I pull him closer to me. He grinds his considerable hard-on against my pussy and I moan out loud again. Not having had sex in over three years has clearly turned me into a wanton slut. The feel of his hands, lips, and erection drives me to the brink of insanity. With his body pressing me firmly against the wall, his hands are free to roam over my body.
His left hand slips beneath the hem of my t-shirt and works its way up to my breast. Then he holds my breast before giving it a slight squeeze. The roughness of his hand adds to the sensations he’s creating. Taking my nipple between two of his fingers, he pinches it while grinding his erection against my center. My orgasm takes me by surprise and I whimper into his mouth. Never have I come so quickly for a man, especially with him barely having touched me. Wolf presses his face into my neck, panting heavily while I come down from my high.
“Shit.” He draws in another deep breath. “I didn’t mean to do that. I only want to talk to you.”
Nodding is the only reply I have for him. All capacity to form words and sentences has fled me. Slowly, he lowers me to my feet, but he doesn’t let go. Instead, he tilts my head back and kisses me again. This kiss is soft and exploratory and unrushed. My hands move of their own volition, around his neck and twisting into his hair as he slowly continues to seduce my mouth.
“I’m going to leave before this goes any further, but I want to get to know you. I want to spend time with you. Go out with me tomorrow?”
“I can’t.” My reply has a scowl instantly appearing on his face. Touching my lips to his, I explain, “I’m on shift tomorrow.”
“Fuck that. I’ll sort that out as long as you give me a chance.”
He looks so hopeful as he waits for me to answer. After I nod my agreement, he kisses me before he pulls away.
“I’ll pick you up at six. You should wear something comfortable.”
He grabs my phone and programs his number in it before calling himself. He lightly kisses my forehead before returning to his motorcycle, leaving me behind wanting more.

A new author for me. This is a fast paced read that grabs you. The story follows Hadley and the Wolf. He’s been through so much and he’s lost almost everything. The Gypsy Bastards MC is all he has left. Hadley was brought up in the MC life so it’s not shocking or new to her but then her father died. Everything changed for her. Within the same time frame, her brother is killed trying to protect her. Now she’s lost and grieving and on the run.
What a fantastic start to a series by a new author! I was completely immersed from the very beginning and couldn't put it down. Hadley escapes one MC only to need help from another later, which is where she meets Wolf. There's plenty of suspense, action, twists and more throughout. Enjoy this well written dark romance! Can't wait to see what comes next...
This was Brandon & Hadley’s book. I loved this book about two broken ppl finding each other. It was an intriguing, emotional read. And am voluntarily leaving my review.
Gritty and intense, no holds barred awesome read. The author doesn't use any more words than necessary, and the ones used do their work, and some! Can't wait to read the other books in the series
A good story. It should come with warnings as it may contain triggers for some people. Violence, anguish, hot scenes. Strong women and tough men who know what they want and do everything to get it.
This is the second book I've read written by Jade Marshall; I can’t wait to read more of her books. This is the first book in the Gypsy Bastards MC Series; it is a stand-alone short story. The story is about Hadley & Brandon. I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.
Brandon hadn't wanted anyone since the day his wife passed away. He was his highschool sweetheart and he loved her. Hadley did not like MCs. Every sine growing up in one, it creeped her out. Wolf was a great dynamic Two people that needed to get rid of past baggage to accept what they could have.
I liked this pretty well. Brandon has lost so much in his life, so he is scared to put himself out there. But at first sight of Hadley, he wants her. They have a very bumpy ride to their hea. Brandon's attitude in the ending kind of ruined it for me. It was a happy moment and he
The story line and character work were good. The book had a fairly smooth flow to it. This was a great start to a series. I look forward to more from this author.
Hadley and Wolf went through a lot in life to just function. Wolf has the MC and Hadley has...Storm. Hadley doing the best she can comes to the point where she is gonna have to start over and step out of her comfort and when she does, she becomes friends with Gypsy Bastards and falling in love with Wolf and gaining a while new family. But in the meantime, they have to deal with Viper and those degenerates working with Iron Disciples, her father's former MC but no longer what they used to be. I am loveing the first book of the Gypsy Bastards....looking forward to more.
So this is my first book by this author and I loved reading this story. Great characters, storyline was well thought out and I hope there is more to come. Wolf and his MC are your typical alpha males! While Hadley has had her fair share of exposure to an MC the ones she was around were the ones who earned their bad reputation. The Gypsy’s are not like them but Hadley still has her reservations. But she is forced to put her trust in them when a current run in with another MC puts her in their crosshairs. Can Wolf keep her safe and rebuild his life with her after he lost his first true love?
What a beautiful dark story Jade presented this time around. Hadley moved to a small town for a new start. Wolf aka Brandon is ready to move on from his past life and learn to love again. When Wolf seen Hadley at work he knew he had to have her. Check out this rollercoaster of a read while learning about three different motorcycle gangs, and will Hadley break Wolf of his dominant ways when it comes to her. Check out this easy flowing, page turner of a book. Enjoy
Jade Marshall has started the Gypsy Bastards MC series with a bang. Insta-love meets slow burn with a dose of spice. Add a side of "touch her and die" and a shake in emotionally scared main characters for a great time. Marshall's careful unfurling of the heroine’s back story is masterful. Foreshadowing is carefully and thoughtfully used while still allowing for enough surprises to keep the reader engaged. Strong characters make for good dialogue, which Marshall writes very well. As much as I enjoy smutty writing, I enjoyed the characters building up to that point in their relationship - it felt really authentic. Don’t be mistaken, when the story gets there, it is SMOKING HOT. The supporting characters well developed and the reader's curiosity roused for their own stories. A relatively quick read, I finished The Wolf in a few hours, I really enjoyed this book. I’m looking forward to reading the other books in the series.
wolf went through losing his wife and unborn child at the same time. He has remained heartbroken the whole time not giving any other woman a chance… then he came across Hadley. I really liked the plot and pace of this book. I never got bored. I couldn’t stop reading.
My first book by this author and I enjoyed the story and the characters are wonderful and they have a great chemistry a must read. I'm looking forward to more by this author
This is the story of Wolf and Hadley. The two meet at a club owned by the MC and where Hadley works. The attraction is instant and the story flies. It is filled with action, grit and good heat! Heed the trigger warnings as there is darkness that swims around this world and the author did not shy away from detailing it. It’s a great debut novel and I look forward to reading more from this author and of this MC world!
Hadley and Brandon’s story has her working as a waitress where Brandon sees here. He wants to get to know her but she doesn’t want to let her guard down after he lost his wife and baby. But when she gets kidnapped and beaten him and his MC help get her back. These two overcome their past trauma and have their hea Violence is in this book
The Wolf by Jade Marshall has made it as one of my favorites. It's impossible to not be wrapped up immediately in this book. Once the story begins to unfold, it's fast and keeps you wanting to know more. It's full of unconditional love based on a past shared experience, one that has broken their hearts and souls but that themselves can mend, and subsequently heal each other. A must read. Pick up your copy today...
I think Gypsy Bastards MC is a great series, and also the story of Hadley and Brandon. Their story draws you in and if you like MC stories then this is one you should read, their story does contain violence which is normal in an MC but also violence against women, assault, danger and much more if you think that triggers are for you then you better skip this book. But no matter what they have to deal with the brothers of the MC are always there for each other and for the club and they also protect the women they love and do everything for it. Your attention doesn't wane from their story and you empathize with them and hope they get their hea together.
It’s a good story but it does have some dark themes. CharActers were good and the storyline plot how they come together and sort out there problems to learn to love again. Well written also. I recieved a free copy via Booksprout and I’m giving my review freely and honestly
I really loved this book. It was an MC romance, which I love and had a great storyline. I really liked the characters and I can't wait to read more in this series. There was some dark and violent aspects, so be aware, but this was an awesome read!
The first book in the Gypsy Bastards MC series. Hadley after losing her family leaves the MC her Father and brother where part of and finds her way to the Gypsy Bastards MC where she meets Wolf who has lost his family also. There is drama, danger, suspense, villains and romance. This is a new Author to me. I received a copy of this book via Evernight and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I really loved this book. It was an MC romance, which I love and had a great storyline. I really liked the characters and I can't wait to read more in this series. There was some dark and violent aspects, so be aware, but this was an awesome read!
This is my welcomed introduction to Jade Marshall. Great chemistry between Brandon and Hadley. I just took off half a star because while the characters communicate through their fears and misunderstandings, their immediate assumptions were a little exhausting. Loved all the supporting characters and can’t wait to read more of this MCs action packed storylines.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. I really enjoyed that Wolf isn't a typical MC nympho. The stories about his past and the way Hadley has an instant impact on him make for a wonderful tale. Highly recommend this story and very much looking forward to more from the Gypsy Bastards.
This was a new author for me but will keep up with them! Hadley grew up in an MC club with a loving family. Everything changed when her father was killed. Her brother ended up in the life, her mother was turned out, and she was next. When protecting her gets her brother killed too, she takes off, trying to make her way in a world that only knows how to hurt her. Wolf had lost everything he had ever loved and the club was all he had left. He took his role as enforcer seriously and beat himself up whenever someone got hurt on his watch. Since the death of his wife and child, he hasn't been able to connect or feel for anyone. No hookups for this guy. Then he sees Hadley and he can't seem to look away.
Jade Marshall is a new author to me and I will need to read more books from her. This is a fast paced, quick, first book of the series and will keep you turning the pages. Book contains a rival MC, kidnapping, secrets, and lots of drama with twists and turns. Can’t wait to read the next book.
This is the first book in a new MC series and if the rest are going to be as good as The Wolf this series will be a hit. Wolf has lost so much in his life only having his club behind him now. Hadley was brought up in the MC life but when her father died things got crazy. Her brother was killed trying to protect her but she seen the writing on the wall and took off trying to make it on her own. She met the GBMC during work and she knew how to hold her own with bikers but there was one biker in particular who took to her. With another club wanting to take and destroy her Wolf became her protector. This was a fast paced MC that held my attention from the very beginning and was a huge page turner for me. I can’t wait to see what comes next in this new series.
I love Wolf And Hadley! They are great characters with a definite need for each other. She fears MC men, and for a reason. Wolf is the enforcer for the Gypsy MC who has loved deeply and lost big. It has been several years since he lost his wife and daughter and no women has affected him until Hadley. She is scared and timid but she find strength she did not know she had when she meets Wolf/Brandon. This is a good read that I could not put down. It is captivating with danger, violence, passion, love and more. I am glad Viper met his match but what about King?
I certainly did not want to put this books down. A girl who has had a hard life and a hot biker …yum! I hope there will be a follow up story so we can know what’s happening to her mother and her family in Louisiana. The story kind of ended abruptly for me. These details would have made a nice epilogue.
I really enjoy and love this book. How not also we read about Wolf and Hailey but all the other characters. I can not wait for the remaining stories!!!
I don't think I've come across a more mismatched couple yet! Wolf is still grieving the loss of his fist love and daughter; while Hadley is on the run from her abusive MC club. She does not trust easily, and Wolf doesn't show his feelings easily! Can this mismatched couple find a way to be together when everything seems to be against them? Especially since Hadley wants nothing to do with anyone involved in an MC club? This frustrating, emotional and tumultuous story will have you hoping for an HEA all the way to the end!
This book was written so well. It is important to note that there are some dark themes in this book. If you can’t handle reading about rape and sexual abuse this book is not for you!!! That being said the characters were very good and the world building was great. There were plenty of steamy moments as well as lots of action. The book was written so that the next installment had several different paths to follow. Should be interesting to see where book number two goes as far as the storyline and the couple involved!
This was such an exciting and fast paced story. I loved Hadley and Wolf together. They each had a mountain of baggage and certainly drew all sorts of emotions and reactions from each other. They did not communicate smoothly but they eventually manage to sort that out...eventually ;) There is a ton of action and, frankly, violence in this story so if you don't enjoy that aspect to an MC story, this may not be for you. I have already read this twice and can see myself diving in again and again. Expect a a riveting story with fab steam and an MC that is a family defending each other.
This was a really good read. If you haven't read this author's work you need to. She has such a way of making the story believable and then adding these bit of sorrow and distrust to the story it is so good to see them working together for their happy ending.
I really enjoyed reading The Wolf. This is the first book that I’ve read by this author and I was so glad I did. Loved Hadley and Wolf’s story!!
Gypsy Bastards seems like an excellent story waiting to be shared. Hadley & Wolf had me so spun out. Like seriously both of them have issues yet are so perfect for each other being imperfect. Makes you want to slap them silly while pushing them towards each other to their HEA. Looking forward to the next set of books!
First time reading a book by Jade Marshall. Hadley and Wolf’s story was good. Hadley was working on overcoming her past and ends up meeting Wolf. After a run in with another MC Hadley finds herself in danger and Wolf is there to save her. This was a short book but very good read loved Hadley as a strong female.
This is a dark MC romance where Hadley is working at a Diner when Viper and his crew pass through. Storm one of the waitresses helps Hadley after Viper backhands her, she pulls her gun on them and makes them leave. Instead of being a good boss Mary fires her! Being fired through no fault of her own, punches Mary on the nose. Hadley and wolf meet and he is there when she is rescued by the MC from Vipers torture. This is a well written story and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I love Wolf and Hadley's story. They have the ability to both make each other happier than they've ever been and at the same time make each madder than they've ever been. When Wolf lays eyes on the new waitress at Dusk he doesn't quite know how to respond to how she makes him feel. Hadley is a tough as nails, take no prisoners, fierce woman. She grew up with the Iron Disciples MC so she's no stranger to the life. But the things this Biker makes her feel is unlike anything else she's ever felt. This story is full of emotion and has plenty of excitement so there's definitely never a dull moment.
My first book by Jade Marshal and will be back for more! This is Hadley and Wolfs story, both have a hard time trusting in the people around them and dont let their walls down easily. but can a trust be formed within the romance that burst fire between them? Well written with great lovable characters and well detailed scenes. i cant wait to read more from the Gypsy B* MC!
Hadley has had her share of MC’s and is determined to keep her distance. Unfortunately for her, she attracts the attention of one of two local clubs and it’s not in a good way, nor are they a good club. In fact, they are more like the club she is currently hiding from. With the help of a friend, she is introduced to the Gypsy Bastards who have their ethics and morals that do not include hurting women or children. Wolf finds himself fascinated by her and doesn’t therefore always think with his big brain. Hadley is not only a survivor but she is a fighter too. She is not prepared to take anything lying down and certainly stands up to Wolf when she needs to. He is a man who has already suffered loss and wants nothing more than to protect Hadley at all costs. There is a LOT of miscommunication in this novella! I can’t see it any other way though, so it works. There are numerous characters in this novella, all with stories I would love to see. With great situations and characters, this was a brilliant way to start a series and one I hope to see more from. Definitely recommended by me.
The story line and character work were good. The book had a fairly smooth flow to it. This was a great start to a series. I look forward to more from this author. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I loved this story from start to finish. The characters were all wonderful and easy to get into. I will read more from this author. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Jade Marshall did a great job The Wolf, the plot was strong, it was filled with many emotions. The story was written well. Hadley and Brandon were strong characters. Their journey was rough, both have been through a lot but both were fighters. They were good for one another, healed each other. Their connection and chemistry was strong. They were made for each other. I enjoyed this story, it was great. Thanks, Jade Marshall. Great work :)
WOW!! It is a book I couldn't even put down for one second. It captivated me from the beginning till the end. I am such a sucker for love, humor and action, all in one story. I just loved it. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
