Series: MC Sinners Next Generation #3
Author: Bella Jewel
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 23, 2016
I am a huge Bella Jewel fan. I loved the original MC Sinners series. Although this is the third installment of the next generation, this is the first book that I have read. This book can easily be read as a standalone, but having read the original series, its wonderful to recognize and have the story of so many of the original characters continued. As I've come to expect from Bella Jewel this book was incredibly well written, full of drama and action.
Manacle is Skye and Danny's story. Skye's and Danny grew up in the MC. Those familiar with the series will recognize that Skye's Grandfather is the MC President, her father Cade is the VP. Danny's father Spike, is Cade's best friend and also a member of the MC. Skye and Danny were incredibly close as children, when they became lovers their relationship changed.
The book is told from Skye's point of view and for me I found her to be a confused and indecisive character, that I found to be a bit frustrating and annoying. Skye comes across as emotionally erratic and quite immature. Danny on the other hand is your typical alpha MC badass, being groomed as the next president he is loyal, tough, loving and has an extremely dirty mouth. I loved Danny's character so adorable and swoon worthy. I would have loved if this book was told from a dual point of view, mainly because I loved Danny's character and would have loved to have had more of him within the story.
Their relationship is forbidden, and although they are best friends and share an intense chemistry and connection, Skye lets her fears get the better of her and runs away from everything including her relationship and feelings for Danny. Their story is quite heart breaking and is full of bitterness, angst and drama.
This book is full of twists and turns that I didn't see coming and kept me guessing and thoroughly engaged and enthralled to the very end. I look forward to reading the previous books in the next generation series and any future books in this series as well.
Lovers of MC romance will enjoy this read for the banter and relationship that the members of the club share. If you are a Bella Jewel fan, you won't regret picking up this book.
I’ve loved Danny since I was five.
He’s loved me longer.
It seemed destined that we would be together, it seemed like the stars had aligned.
Then we grew up and life got in the way.
He’s stepping up to be president of the Motorcycle club we grew up in.
And I want no part in it.
I want to be free, to travel the world and experience life without violence.
He’s not willing to give up the club.
I’m not willing to be an old lady.
But giving him up is like losing a part of myself.
Love isn’t easy.
Life certainly never is.
The manacles he has wrapped around me will hold me to him.
No matter how hard I try to run.
