Blog Tour and Review--Renegade Lady by Dawn Martens--
Jenna “Ice” Chandler grew up as part of a motorcycle club. She considered it her home, until one wrong move made it her prison. After months of abuse, she is rescued by Chipper, who takes her to Big Clifty, Missouri, home of the Renegade Sons MC.
Kiddrick “Kidd” Jones is the president of the Renegades. He knows there is something special about Ice the moment his older brother, Chipper, brings her into the club, but stays away, because she is too young.
When time comes for Ice to take her place in the club, she has two choices, become an old lady or a club whore. Not believing in love and knowing a man can never be faithful, she decides to earn her spot on her back.
With each passing year, Kidd's feelings for Ice grows and the urge to make her his becomes stronger. Frustrated and jealous, he finally decides it’s time to make her his.
Will Ice finally thaw out and give love a chance, or is Kidd fighting a losing battle?

I received and ARC for an honest review.
Ok, seriously, I freaking LOVE a good MC book. The challenge that I normally have is that a real MC is not frilly and pretty. MC's literally live in a completely different world. They have their own rules, their own codes, and their own way of doing things. For instance, it is a honor to be called and "Old Lady"...in the MC world a girl strives for this. This is top honor. Its not an insult. And an "Old Lady" would never, ever sass her Old Man in front of the brothers. She may have her say behind closed doors, but never in front of people.
Now that being said, I hate the fact that so many MC books are over romanticized. HATE.IT... MC's are rough, and rowdy. The men are filthy talkers. They are loud, and obnoxious. The really dont care what you think about them. The women wear property tattoos, or patches on their vests. Its the way it it. So when I read a MC book that is all pretty flowers, or the woman is running around ruling the roost, I laugh..yes, laugh. Or, sometimes you read one where the author is trying way to hard to add in violence and crime. This makes me SMH....so when I can get my hands on a good MC book it makes me do a happy dance.
Renegade Lady was a great MC book. It was not overly romanticized, and if you are looking for hearts and flowers, then this book is not for you. There is violence, drugs, and rape.... But, if you are like me and you like a bit of grittiness then head on over and grab a copy.
Jenna finds herself in a relationship with Timmons. A member of her fathers MC, the Renegade Sons. Timmons is a complete ass. He is violent, beating Jenna and forcing her into doing things she does not want to do. And, she is only 16...
Chipper is the VP of a another chapter of the Renegade Sons, and when his dad, Gun-the President, sends him to investigate some issues with the other chapter...and when he gets there, he takes Jenna home with him.
Enter, Kidd, Chipper's brother. Jenna falls fast and hard for Kidd. But she is underage and Kidd will not go near her. Their story is a hard fought one. There is so many twists and turns that the story never gets boring. And when you think you have it figured out, you soon realize you don't. It is a wild ride...
